I went to Florence, there's this cafe, on the banks of the Arno. Every fine evening, I'd sit there and order a Fernet Branca. I had this fantasy, that I would look across the tables and I'd see you there, with a wife and maybe a couple of kids. You wouldn't say anything to me, nor me to you. But we'd both know that you'd made it, that you were happy. I never wanted you to come back to Gotham. I always knew there was nothing here for you, except pain and tragedy.

  • (Gary Oldman) "We could use some hotter heads around here."
  • (Gary Oldman) "I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss. I see the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy. I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence. It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known."
  • (Gary Oldman) "No lawyer, no witnesses? What sort of due process is this?"
  • (Dr. Jonathan Crane) "Your guilt has been determined. This is merely a sentencing hearing. Now, what will it be? Death or Exile?"
  • (Gary Oldman) "Crane, if you think we're going to walk out on that ice willingly, you got another thing coming."

Tom Hardy as Bane

  • (Bruce Wayne) "Why didn't you just -- kill me?"
  • (Tom Hardy) "You don't fear death -- You welcome it. Your punishment must be more severe."
  • (Bruce Wayne) "Torture?"
  • (Tom Hardy) "Yes. But not of your body -- Of your soul."
  • (Bruce Wayne) "Where am I?"
  • (Tom Hardy) "Home, where I learned the truth about despair, as will you. There's a reason why this prison is the worst hell on earth -- Hope. Every man who has ventured here over the centuries has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to freedom. So easy -- So simple -- And like shipwrecked men turning to sea water from uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. So, as I terrorize Gotham, I will feed its people hope to poison their souls. I will let them believe they can survive so that you can watch them clamoring over each other to "stay in the sun." You can watch me torture an entire city and when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Ra's al Ghul's destiny -- We will destroy Gotham and then, when it is done and Gotham is ashes, then you have my permission to die"

  • (CIA Agent) "He didn't fly so good."
  • (CIA Agent) "Who wants to try next?"
  • (CIA Agent) "Tell me about Bane. Why does he wear the mask? A lot of loyalty, for a hired gun."
  • (Tom Hardy) "Or perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man, before throwing him out of a plane?"
  • (CIA Agent) "At least you can talk. Who are you?"
  • (Tom Hardy) "It doesn't matter who we are, what matters is our plan."
  • (Tom Hardy) "No one cared who I was until I put on the mask."
  • (CIA Agent) "If I pull that off, would you die?"
  • (Tom Hardy) "It would be extremely painful."
  • (CIA Agent) "You're a big guy."
  • (Tom Hardy) "For you."
  • (CIA Agent) "Was getting caught part of your plan?"

  • (Tom Hardy) "Crashing this plane -- with no survivors."
  • (Tom Hardy) "We take Gotham from the corrupt. The rich. The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you -- the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere. Do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate, and freeing the oppressed. Step forward those who would serve. For and army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests, and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice. This great city -- it will endure. Gotham will survive."

  • (Sewer Thug #1) "No he's alone --"
  • (Tom Hardy) "Search him, then I will kill you."
  • (Sewer Thug #2) "He's dead."
  • (Tom Hardy) "So show me his body."
  • (Sewer Thug #2) "The water runs to any one of the outflows. We'll never find him."

  • (Tom Hardy) "Only you. Thank you, doctor."
  • (Tom Hardy) "Now, this bomb is armed. This bomb is mobile. And the identity of the triggerman is a mystery. For one of you holds the detonator. And we came here not as conquerors, but as liberators to return control of this city to the people. And at the first sign of interference from the outside world, or for those people attempting to flee, this anonymous Gothamite; this unsung hero; will trigger the bomb. For now, martial law is in effect. Return to your homes, hold your families close, and wait. Tomorrow you claim what is rightfully yours."

  • (Christian Bale) "You were excommunicated -- by a gang of psychopaths."
  • (Tom Hardy) "I AM the League of Shadows, and I'm here to fulfill Ra's al Ghul's destiny."
  • (Tom Hardy) "You fight like a younger man, with nothing held back. Admirable but mistaken."
  • (Tom Hardy) "Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING."
  • (Tom Hardy) "The shadows betray you, because they belong to me."
  • (Tom Hardy) "I will show you where I have made my home while preparing to bring justice. Then I will break you."

  • (John Blake) "Commissioner, we need to keep you moving until we can get you in front of a camera."
  • (Tom Hardy) "You have been supplied with a false idol to stop you from tearing down this CORRUPT CITY. Let me tell you the truth about Harvey Dent from the words of Gotham's police commissioner, James Gordon."
  • (Tom Hardy) ""The Batman didn't murder Harvey Dent, he saved my boy then took the blame for Harvey's appalling crimes so that I could, to my shame, build a lie around this fallen idol. I praised the mad man who tried to murder my own child but I can no longer live with my lie. It is time to trust the people of Gotham with the truth and it is time for me to resign.""
  • (Tom Hardy) "And do you accept this man's resignation? Do you accept the resignation of all these liars? Of all the CORRUPT?"
  • (John Blake) "Those men locked up for eight years in Blackgate, and denied parole under the Dent Act, based on a lie?"
  • (Gary Oldman) "Gotham needed a hero --"
