  • (Katie Holmes) "You're not talking about justice. You're talking about revenge."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Sometimes they're the same."

  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Your system is broken."
  • (Katie Holmes) "You care about justice? Look beyond your own pain, Bruce. This city is rotting. People talk about the depression as if its history, and it's not. Things are worse than ever down here. Falcone floods our streets with crime and drugs, preying on the desperate, creating new Joe Chills every day. Falcone not have killed your parents Bruce, but he's destroying everything they stood for."
  • (Katie Holmes) "You wanna thank him for that, here you go. We all know where to find him, but as long as he keeps the bad people rich and the good people scared no one will touch him.

  • (Katie Holmes) "What's "scarecrow"?"
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Patients suffering delusional episodes often focus their paranoia on an external tormentor. Usually one conforming to Jungian archetypes. In this case, a scarecrow."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Outside, he was a giant. In here, only the mind can grant you power."

  • (Ra's al Ghul) "Gentlemen, time to spread the word. And the word is panic."
  • (Finch) "Falcone has half the city bought and paid for. Drop it."

  • (Katie Holmes) "Bruce?"

  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I know, how are things?"

  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Can't change the world on your own."
  • (Katie Holmes) "What choice do I have when you're too busy swimming?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Rachel, all- all this, it- it's not me, inside, I am, I am more."
  • (Unnamed) "Come on, Bruce."
  • (Unnamed) "We have some more hotels for you to buy."
  • (Katie Holmes) "Bruce, deep down you may still be that great kid you used to be, but it's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you."
  • (Little Boy) "Batman will save us. He'll come. He'll come."
  • (Katie Holmes) "Don't peek."
  • (Little Boy) "I told you he'd come."
  • (Katie Holmes) "Deep down you may still be that same great kid you used to be. But it's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you."
  • (Katie Holmes) "You really think a man who butchers people for the mob doesn't belong in prison?"
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Well, I would hardly have testified to that otherwise, would I?"
  • (Katie Holmes) "This is the third of Carmine Falcone's thugs you've had declared insane and moved into your asylum."

  • (Katie Holmes) "-- Or the corrupt."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Mr. Finch. I think you should check with Miss Dawes here just what implications your office has authorized her to make. If any."
  • (Katie Holmes) "What will you do?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Rebuild it. Just the way it was, brick for brick."
  • (Michael Caine) "Just the way it was, sir?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Yeah. Why?"
  • (Michael Caine) "I thought this might be a good opportunity for improving the foundations."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "In the south-east corner?"
  • (Michael Caine) "Precisely, sir."
  • (Katie Holmes) "Wait. You could die. At least tell me your name."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "-- It's not who I am underneath -- but what I do -- that defines me."
  • (Katie Holmes) "-- Bruce?"
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Outside, he was a giant. In here, only the mind can grant you power."
  • (Katie Holmes) "You enjoy the reversal?"
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "I respect the mind's power over the body. It's why I do what I do."
  • (Katie Holmes) "The day that Chill died, I -- I said terrible things."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "But true things. I was a coward with a gun. Justice is about more than revenge, so, thank you."
  • (Katie Holmes) "Bruce, I don't suppose there's any way to convince you not to come."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Someone at this proceeding should stand for my parents."
  • (Katie Holmes) "We all loved your parents, Bruce. What Chill did is unforgivable."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Then why is your boss letting him go?"
  • (Katie Holmes) "In prison, he shared a cell with Carmine Falcone, he learned things and he will testify in exchange for early parole."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Rachel, this man killed my parents. I cannot let that pass. And I need you to understand that, please."
  • (Katie Holmes) "Crane?"
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "No, Scarecrow."

Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox

  • (Morgan Freeman) "The Tumbler? Oh you wouldn't be interested in that."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "She was built as a bridging vehicle. During combat, two of these would jump over a river, towing cables. Over here on the throttle, flip that open and throttle up. This will boost you into a rampless jump."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Not now. Not -- not now, Sir."
  • (Unnamed) "Afterburner disengaged."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "We never could get the damn bridge to work, but this baby works just fine."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "So what do you think?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Does it come in black?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "I analyzed your blood, isolating the receptor compounds and the protein-based catalyst."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Am I meant to understand any of that?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Not at all, I just wanted you to know how hard it was. Bottom line, I synthesized an antidote."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Could you make more?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "You planning on gassing yourself again, Mr Wayne?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Well, you know how it is, Mr Fox. You're out at night, looking for kicks, someone's passing around the weaponized hallucinogens --"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "I'll bring what I have. The antidote should inoculate you for now."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Well, what is it today? More spelunking?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "No. Today it's BASE-jumping."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "BASE-jumping. That like parachuting?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Kinda. Do you have any light-weight fabrics?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "You know -- I think I have just the thing."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "It's called memory cloth. Notice anything?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Regularly flexible. But put a current through it --"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Molecules re-align, becomes rigid."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "What kind of shapes can you make?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Can be tailored to fit any structure based on a rigid skeleton."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Too expensive for the Army?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "I don't think they tried to market it to the billionaire, spelunking, BASE-jumping crowd."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Look, Mr. Fox."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Yes, sir?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "If you're uncomfortable --"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Mister Wayne, if you don't want to tell me exactly what you're doing, when I'm asked, I don't have to lie. But don't think of me as an idiot."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Fair enough."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "So, what do you think?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Does it come in black?"

Liam Neeson as Henri Ducard

  • (Liam Neeson) "Criminals thrive on the indulgence of society's understanding."
  • (Liam Neeson) "And do you still feel responsible for your parents' death?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "My anger outweighs my guilt."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Come."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Are you ready to begin?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I-I can barely stand --"
  • (Liam Neeson) "Death does not wait for you to be ready. Death is not considerate, or fair. And make no mistake: here, you face Death."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Your compassion is a weakness your enemies will not share."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "That's why it's so important. It separates us from them."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Theatricality and deception are powerful agents."
  • (Liam Neeson) "You traveled the world -- Now you must journey inwards -- to what you really fear -- it's inside you -- there is no turning back. Your parents' death was not your fault. Your training is nothing. The will is everything. If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, you become something else entirely. Are you ready to begin?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "Your anger gives you great power. But if you let it, it will destroy you. As it almost did me."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "What stopped it?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "Vengeance."
  • (Unnamed) "Get in."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Are you so desperate to fight criminals that you lock yourself in to take them on one at a time?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Actually, there were uh, seven of them."
  • (Liam Neeson) "I counted six, Mr. Wayne."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "How do you know my name?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "The world is too small for someone like Bruce Wayne to disappear, no matter how deep he chooses to sink."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Who are you?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "My name is merely Ducard, but I speak for Ra's al Ghul, a man greatly feared by the criminal underworld. A man who could offer you a path."
  • (Liam Neeson) "When you lived among the criminals, did you start to pity them?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "The first time I stole so that I wouldn't starve, yes. I lost many assumptions about the simple nature of right and wrong. And when I traveled, I learned the fear before a crime and the thrill of success. But I never became one of them."
  • (Liam Neeson) "What are you doing?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "What is necessary, my friend."
  • (Liam Neeson) "But I know the rage that drives you. That impossible anger strangling the grief, until the memory of your loved one is just -- poison in your veins. And one day, you catch yourself wishing the person you loved had never existed, so you would be spared your pain."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Men fear most what they cannot see."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Your parents' death was not your fault."
  • (Liam Neeson) "It was your father's."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Anger does not change the fact that your father failed to act."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "The man had a gun."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Would that stop you?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I've had training."
  • (Liam Neeson) "The training is nothing. The will is everything."
  • (Liam Neeson) "The will to act."
  • (Liam Neeson) "You have learned to bury your guilt with anger. I will teach you to confront it, and to face the truth. You know how to fight six men. We can teach you how to engage six hundred. You know how to disappear. We can teach you to become truly invisible."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Invisible?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "A Ninja understands that invisibility is a matter of patience -- and agility."
  • (Liam Neeson) "But a criminal is not complicated. What you really fear is inside yourself. You fear your own power. You fear your anger, the drive to do great or terrible things."
  • (Liam Neeson) "You've traveled the world to understand the criminal mind and conquer your fears."
  • (Liam Neeson) "You must become more than just a man in the mind of your opponent."

:*Gus Lewis as Bruce Wayne

  • (Ra's al Ghul) "You were my greatest student. It should be you standing by my side, saving the world."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I'll be standing where I belong. Between you and the people of Gotham."
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "No one can save Gotham."
  • (Maitre D) "Sir, the pool is for decoration, and your friends do not have swimwear."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Well, they're European."
  • (Maitre D) "I'm going to have to ask you to leave."
  • (Maitre D) "It is not a question of money."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Well, you see, I'm buying this hotel, and uh, setting some new rules about the pool area."
  • (Homeless Man) "For what?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Your jacket."
  • (Homeless Man) "Okay."
  • (Homeless Man) "Hey, hey, hey, let me have it. It's a nice coat."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Be careful who sees you with that. They're going to come looking for me."
  • (Homeless Man) "Who?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Everyone."
  • (Homeless Man) "It's-it's a nice coat --"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I will go back to Gotham and I will fight men like this, but I will not become an executioner."
  • (Liam Neeson) "Bruce, please. For your own sake. There is no turning back."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "They're planning on dosing the entire city with toxin."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Water supply won't help you disperse an inhalant --"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "What?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "-- Unless you had a microwave emitter capable of vaporizing all the water in the mains. A microwave emitter like the one Wayne Enterprises just misplaced."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) ""Misplaced?""
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Earle just fired me for asking too many questions about it."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I need you to go back to Wayne Enterprises right now and start making more of that antidote. I think the police are going to need all they can get their hands on, okay?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "My security clearance has been revoked."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Oh, that wouldn't stop a man like you now, would it, Mr. Fox?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "I suppose not."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "They told me there was nothing out there, nothing to fear. But the night my parents were murdered I caught a glimpse of something. I've looked for it ever since. I went around the world, searched in all the shadows. And there is something out there in the darkness, something terrifying, something that will not stop until it gets revenge -- Me."
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "When a forest grows too wild a purging fire is inevitable and natural. Tomorrow, the world will watch in horror as its greatest city destroys itself. The movement back to harmony will be unstoppable this time."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You've attacked Gotham before?"
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "Of course. Over the ages our weapons have grown more sophisticated. With Gothan we tried a new one: economics. But we underestimated certain of Gotham's citizens -- such as your parents. Gunned down by one of the very people they were trying to help. Create enough hunger and everyone becomes a criminal. Their deaths galvanized the city into saving itself and Gotham has limped on ever since. We are back to finish the job. And this time no misguided idealists will get in the way. Like your father you lack the courage to do all that is necessary. If someone stands in the way of true justice, you simply walk up behind them -- and stab them in the heart."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "What's that?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "The Tumbler? Oh, you wouldn't be interested in that."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I thought the point of solitary confinement was the solitary part."
  • (Liam Neeson) "These men have mistaken you for a criminal, Mr. Wayne --"
  • (Enormous Prisoner) "You are in hell, little man."
  • (Enormous Prisoner) "And I am the devil."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You're not the devil. You're practice."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You were on the board?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "When your father ran things, yeah."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You knew my father?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Oh, yeah. Helped him build his train. Ah, here we are. Kevlar utility harness. Gas-powered magnetic grapple gun. The three hundred and fifty pound test monofilament. Wonderful project, your dad's train. Routed it right into Wayne Tower along with the water and power utilities. Kind of made Wayne Tower the unofficial centre of Gotham City. Of course, Earle let it go to rot. Here we are. Nomex survival suit for advanced infantry. Kevlar biweave, reinforced joints."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Bruce Wayne."
  • (Rutger Hauer) "What makes you think you can decide who's running Wayne Enterprises?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Well, the fact that I'm the owner."
  • (Rutger Hauer) "What are you talking about? The company went public a week ago."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "And I bought most of the shares. Through various charitable foundations, trusts, and so forth; look, it's all a bit technical, but the important thing is that my company's future is secure."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Right, Mister Fox?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Right you are, Mister Wayne."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Didn't you get the memo?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Bats are nocturnal."
  • (Michael Caine) "Bats may be, but even for billionaire playboys, three o'clock is pushing it. The price of leading a double life, I fear. Your theatrics made an impression."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Theatricality and deception are powerful weapons, Alfred. It's a good start."
  • (Michael Caine) "If those are to be the first of many injuries to come, it would be wise to find a suitable excuse. Polo, for instance."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I'm not learning polo, Alfred."
  • (Michael Caine) "Strange injuries a non-existent social life, these things beg the question as to what exactly does Bruce Wayne do with his time and his money."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "And what does someone like me do?"
  • (Michael Caine) "Drive sports cars, date movie stars, buy things that are not for sale -- who knows, Master Wayne? You start pretending to have fun, you might even have a little by accident."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "What have I done, Alfred? Everything my family -- my father built --"
  • (Michael Caine) "The Wayne legacy is more than bricks and mortar, sir."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I wanted to save Gotham. I failed."
  • (Michael Caine) "Why do we fall sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You still haven't given up on me?"
  • (Michael Caine) "Never."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Everyone. Everybody."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I, uh -- I wanna thank you all for coming here tonight and drinking all of my booze."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "No, really. Uh -- There's a thing about being a Wayne that -- you're never short of a few freeloaders, like yourselves, to fill up your mansion with, so, here's to you people. Thank you."
  • (Fredericks) "That's enough, Bruce."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Mm -- I'm not finished. To all of you, uh, all you phonies, all of you two-faced friends, you sycophantic suck-ups who smile through your teeth at me, please leave me in peace. Please go. Stop smiling. It's not a joke. Please leave. The party's over. Get out."
  • (Fredericks) "The apple has fallen very far from the tree, Mr. Wayne."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "How are you feeling?"
  • (Katie Holmes) "Where are we? Why did you bring me here?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "If I hadn't, your mind would now be lost. You were poisoned."
  • (Katie Holmes) "It was -- it was Dr. Crane --"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Relax, Gordon has Crane."
  • (Katie Holmes) "Is Sergeant Gordon your friend?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I don't have the luxury of friends."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Gotham isn't beyond saving."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You're vigilantes."
  • (Liam Neeson) "No, no, no. A vigilante is just a man lost in the scramble for his own gratification. He can be destroyed, or locked up. But if you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, and if they can't stop you, then you become something else entirely."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Which is?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "Legend, Mr. Wayne."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Yield."
  • (Liam Neeson) "You haven't beaten me. You've sacrificed sure footing for a killing stroke."
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "Have you finally learned to do what is necessary?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I won't kill you."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "-- But I don't have to save you."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Who is he?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "He was a farmer. Then he tried to take his neighbor's land and became a murderer. Now he is a prisoner."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "What'll happen to him?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "Justice. Crime can not be tolerated. Criminals thrive on the indulgence of society's understanding."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You're gonna destroy millions of lives."
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "Only a cynical man would call what these people have "lives," Wayne. Crime, despair -- this is not how man was supposed to live. The League of Shadows has been a check against human corruption for thousands of years. We sacked Rome, loaded trade ships with plague rats, burned London to the ground. Every time a civilization reaches the pinnacle of its decadence, we return to restore the balance."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Have you told anyone I'm coming back?"
  • (Michael Caine) "Well, I just couldn't figure the legal ramifications of bringing you back from the dead."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Dead?"
  • (Michael Caine) "You've been gone seven years."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You had me declared dead?"
  • (Michael Caine) "Well, actually it was Mr. Earle, he's taking the company public. He wanted to liquidate your majority shareholding. Those shares are worth quite a bit of money."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Well, it's a good thing I left everything to you, then."
  • (Michael Caine) "Quite so, sir. And you can borrow the Rolls if you like. Just bring it back with a full tank."
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "Tomorrow the world will watch in horror as its greatest city destroys itself. The movement back to harmony will be unstoppable this time."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You attacked Gotham before?"
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "Of course. Over the ages, our weapons have grown more sophisticated. With Gotham, we tried a new one: Economics. But we underestimated certain of Gotham's citizens -- such as your parents. Gunned down by one of the very people they were trying to help. Create enough hunger and everyone becomes a criminal. Their deaths galvanized the city into saving itself -- and Gotham has limped on ever since. We are back to finish the job. And this time no misguided idealists will get in the way. Like your father, you lack the courage to do all that is necessary. If someone stands in the way of true justice -- you simply walk up behind them and stab them in the heart."
  • (Old Asian Prisoner) "Did you have dream?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Nightmare."
  • (Old Asian Prisoner) "Worse than this?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "We need to send these people away now."
  • (Michael Caine) "Those are Bruce Wayne's guests out there, sir. You have a name to maintain."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I don't care about my name."
  • (Michael Caine) "It's not just your name, sir. It's your father's name. And it's all that's left of him. Don't destroy it."
  • (Bhutanese Prison Guard #1) "Solitary."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Why?"
  • (Bhutanese Prison Guard #1) "For protection."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I don't need protection."
  • (Bhutanese Prison Guard #1) "Protection for them."
  • (Ra's Al Ghul) "You cannot lead these men unless you are prepared to do what is necessary to defeat evil."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "And where would I be leading these men?"
  • (Ra's Al Ghul) "Gotham. As Gotham's favored son you will be ideally placed to strike at the heart of criminality."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "How?"
  • (Ra's Al Ghul) "Gotham's time has come. Like Constantinople or Rome before it the city has become a breeding ground for suffering and injustice. It is beyond saving and must be allowed to die. This is the most important function of the League of Shadows. It is one we've performed for centuries. Gotham -- must be destroyed."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "You're not Ra's al Ghul. I watched him die."
  • (Liam Neeson) "But is Ra's al Ghul immortal?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "Are his methods supernatural?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Or cheap parlor tricks to conceal your true identity, "Ra's"?"
  • (Liam Neeson) "Surely, a man who spends his nights scrambling over the rooftops of Gotham wouldn't begrudge me dual identities?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I saved your life."
  • (Liam Neeson) "I warned you about compassion, Bruce."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Well, a guy who dresses up like a bat clearly has issues."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Tear resistant?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "This sucker will stop a knife."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Bulletproof?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Anything but a straight shot."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Why didn't they put it into production?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Bean counters didn't think a soldier's life was worth 300 grand. So, what's your interest in it, Mr. Wayne?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I wanna borrow it. For, uh, spelunking."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Spelunking?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Yeah, you know, cave diving."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "You expecting to run into much gunfire in these caves?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Look, I'd rather Mr. Earle didn't know about me borrowing --"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Mr. Wayne, the way I see it, all this stuff is yours anyway."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Don't turn around. You're a good cop, one of the few."
  • (Gary Oldman) "What do you want?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Carmine Falcone brings in shipments of drugs every week, no one brings him down, why?"
  • (Gary Oldman) "He's paid up with the right people."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "What will it take to bring him down?"
  • (Gary Oldman) "Leverage on Judge Faden, and a DA brave enough to prosecute."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Rachel Dawes."
  • (Gary Oldman) "Who are you?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Watch for my sign."
  • (Gary Oldman) "You're just one man?"

  • (Gary Oldman) "We?"

Christian Bale as Batman

  • (Christian Bale) "Don't turn around. You're a good cop. One of the few."

  • (Gary Oldman) "It's Lieutenant now."
  • (Christian Bale) "Taste of your own medicine, doctor?"
  • (Christian Bale) "What was your plan? Crane. Who are you working for?"

  • (Christian Bale) "Ra's Al Ghul is dead. Who are you working for? Crane."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Dr. Crane isn't here right now, but if you'd like to make an appointment --"
  • (Christian Bale) "It ends here."
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "For you and the police, maybe. My fight, however, lies with the rest of Gotham. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a city to destroy."
  • (Christian Bale) "I can't beat two of your pawns?"
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "As you wish."
  • (Christian Bale) "Taste of your own medicine, Doctor?"
  • (Ra's al Ghul) "You are just an ordinary man in a cape. That's why you couldn't fight injustice and that's why you can't stop this train."
  • (Christian Bale) "Who said anything about stopping it?"
  • (Gary Oldman) "Yes."
  • (Christian Bale) "You never learned to mind your surroundings."
  • (Christian Bale) "How is she?"
  • (Gary Oldman) "She's fading. We gotta go. I'll get my car."
  • (Christian Bale) "I brought mine."
  • (Gary Oldman) "Yours?"
  • (Gary Oldman) "I've gotta get me one of those."
  • (Jumpy Thug) "WHERE ARE YOU?"
  • (Christian Bale) "Here."
  • (Christian Bale) "Watch for my sign."
  • (Christian Bale) "Storm's coming."
  • (Gary Oldman) "The scum is getting jumpy because you stood up to Falcone."
  • (Christian Bale) "It's a start. Your partner was at the docks with Falcone."
  • (Gary Oldman) "Well, he moonlights as a low-level enforcer."
  • (Christian Bale) "They were splitting the shipment in two. Only half went to the dealers."
  • (Gary Oldman) "Why? What about the other half?"
  • (Christian Bale) "Flass knows."
  • (Gary Oldman) "He won't talk."
  • (Christian Bale) "He'll talk to me."
  • (Gary Oldman) "Commissioner Loeb set up a massive task force to catch you. He thinks you're dangerous."

  • (Gary Oldman) "I think you're trying to help --"
  • (Gary Oldman) "But I've been wrong before."
  • (Christian Bale) "Hold on."
  • (Katie Holmes) "What are you doing?"
  • (Christian Bale) "Short cut."
  • (Uniformed Policeman #1) "Air one to ground. Block that ramp."
  • (Uniformed Policeman #1) "He's got no way off that roof."
  • (Unnamed) "Turn off your engine. Step away from the car."
  • (Christian Bale) "Trust me."

  • (Flass) "I never knew. I don't know. I swear to God --"
  • (Christian Bale) "Swear to me."
  • (Flass) "I don't -- I don't know. I never knew. Never. They went to some guy for a couple of days before they went to the dealers."
  • (Christian Bale) "Why?"
  • (Flass) "There was something -- Something else in the drugs -- something hidden."
  • (Christian Bale) "What?"
  • (Flass) "I never went to the drop-off point. It was in the Narrows. Cops only go there when they're in force."
  • (Christian Bale) "Do I look like a cop?"
  • (Flass) "No --."

Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon

  • (Gary Oldman) "Sorry."
  • (Gary Oldman) "What is that?"

  • (Christian Bale) "And you'll never have to."

Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth

  • (Michael Caine) "When you told me your grand plan for saving Gotham, the only thing that stopped me from calling the men in white coats was when you said that it wasn't about thrill-seeking."

  • (Michael Caine) "What would you call that ?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Damn good television."
  • (Michael Caine) "It's a miracle no one was killed."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Didn't have time to observe the rules of the road, Alfred."
  • (Michael Caine) "They'll have to be, uh, large orders, uh, to avoid suspicion."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "How large?"
  • (Michael Caine) "Say, uh, 10,000."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Well, at least we'll have spares."
  • (Michael Caine) "Will you be heading back to Princeton after the hearing, sir, or can I persuade you to stay on for a day or two?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I'm not heading back at all."

  • (:*Gus Lewis) "No, Alfred, it's my father's house."
  • (Michael Caine) "Your father is dead, Master Wayne."

  • (Michael Caine) "This house, Master Wayne, has sheltered six generations of your family."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Why do you give a damn, Alfred? It's not your family."
  • (Michael Caine) "I give a damn, because a good man once made me responsible for what was most precious to him in the whole world. Miss Dawes has offered to drive you to the hearing. She probably hopes to talk you out of going."

  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Haven't given up on me yet?"
  • (Michael Caine) "Never."
  • (Michael Caine) "Why bats, Master Wayne?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Bats frighten me. It's time my enemies shared my dread."
  • (Michael Caine) "In the Civil War, your great-great grandfather was involved in the Underground Railroad, secretly transporting freed slaves to the North. And I suspect these caverns came in handy."
  • (Michael Caine) "Batman may have made the front page, but Bruce Wayne got pushed to page eight."
  • (Michael Caine) "You look very fashionable. Apart from the mud."
  • (Michael Caine) "Master Wayne, you've been gone a long time."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Yes I have."
  • (Michael Caine) "You look very fashionable. Apart from the mud."

  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Mr. Earle. How did the stock offering go?"
  • (Rutger Hauer) "Very well. The price soared."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Who was buying?"
  • (Rutger Hauer) "A variety of funds and brokerages; it's all a bit technical, but the key thing is, our company's future is secure."
  • (Female Restaurant Guest) "I think the Batman deserves a medal."
  • (Rutger Hauer) "And a straight-jacket to pin it on."
  • (Rutger Hauer) "Jessica, where are you?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Eye on the ball, and --"
  • (Rutger Hauer) "Why is no one answering the phone?"
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "It's Wayne Enterprises, Mr. Earle, I'm sure they'll call back."
  • (Rutger Hauer) "Bruce? You're supposed to be dead."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "Sorry to disappoint."
  • (Rutger Hauer) "I'm merging your department with Archives, and I am firing you. Didn't you get the memo?"

Tom Wilkinson as Carmine Falcone

  • (Tom Wilkinson) "You're taller than you look in the tabloids, Mr. Wayne."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "No gun? I'm insulted. You could have just sent a thank-you note."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I didn't come here to thank you. I came here to show you that not everyone in Gotham's afraid of you."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "Only those who know me, kid. Look around you: you'll see two councilmen, a union official, a couple off-duty cops, and a judge."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "Now, I wouldn't have a second's hesitation of blowing your head off right here and right now in front of 'em. Now, that's power you can't buy. That's the power of fear."
  • (:*Gus Lewis) "I'm not afraid of you."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "Because you think you got nothing to lose. But you haven't thought it through. You haven't thought about your lady-friend down at the D.A.'s office. You haven't thought about your old butler. Bang."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "People from your world have so much to lose. Now, you think because your mommy and your daddy got shot, you know about the ugly side of life, but you don't. You've never tasted desperate. You're, uh, you're Bruce Wayne, the Prince of Gotham; you'd have to go a thousand miles to meet someone who didn't know your name. So, don't-don't come down here with your anger, trying to prove something to yourself. This is a world you'll never understand. And you always fear what you don't understand. Alright."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "Yeah, you got spirit, kid. I'll give you that. More than your old man, anyway. In the joint, Chill told me, uh, told me about the night he killed your parents. He said your father begged for mercy. Begged. Like a dog."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "What the hell are you?"
  • (Christian Bale) "I'm Batman."
  • (Christian Bale) "Nice coat."
  • (Homeless Man) "Thanks."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "Scarecrow. Scarecrow. Scarecrow."
  • (Flass) "Word on the street is, you got a beef with somebody in the D.A.'s office."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "Is that right?"
  • (Flass) "And that there's a fat prize waiting for anybody willing to do anything about it."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "So, what's your point, Mr. Flass?"
  • (Flass) "Have you seen the girl? It's a cute little Assistant D.A. Don't you think that's a little bit too much heat to bring down, maybe? Even for this town?"
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "Never underestimate Gotham City. People get mugged coming home from work every day of the week. Sometimes -- sometimes things just go bad."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "Yeah, Doctor Crane, I can't take it anymore. It's all too much. "The walls are closing in." Blah, blah, blah. Couple more days of this food, it'll be true."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "What do you want?"
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "I want to know how you're gonna convince me to keep my mouth shut."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "About what? You don't know anything."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "I know you don't want the police to take a closer look at the drugs they seized. And I know about your experiments with the inmates of your nuthouse. See, I don't go into business with a guy without finding out his dirty secrets. And those goons you used; I own the muscle in this town. Now, I've been bringing your stuff in for months, so whatever he's planning, it's big, and I want in."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Well, I already know what he'll say: that we should kill you."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "No, even he can't get me in here. Not in my town."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Would you like to see my mask? I use it in my experiments."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Now, probably not very frightening to a guy like you, but these crazies, they can't stand it."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "So when did the nut take over the nuthouse?"
  • (Cillian Murphy) "They scream, and they cry. Much as you're doing now."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Well, he's not faking, not that one. I'll talk to the judge and see if I can get him moved to the secure wing at Arkham. I can't treat him here."
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "I am more than aware that you are not intimidated by me, Mr. Falcone. But you know who I'm working for, and when he gets here --"
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "He-he's coming to Gotham?"
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Yes he is. And when he gets here, he's not gonna want to hear that you have endangered our operation just to get your thugs out of a little jail time."
  • (Tom Wilkinson) "Ignorance is bliss, my friend. Don't burden yourself with the secrets of scary people."

Cillian Murphy as The Scarecrow

  • (Cillian Murphy) "Boo."
  • (Cillian Murphy) "Aw, having trouble?"
  • (Cillian Murphy) "Take a seat. Have a drink."
  • (Cillian Murphy) "You look like a man who takes himself too seriously."
  • (Cillian Murphy) "Do you want my opinion? You need to lighten up."
  • (Cillian Murphy) "There's nothing to fear but fear itself."
  • (Cillian Murphy) "Who knows you're here? Who knows?"
