The Dark Knight Quotes

(Page 2)



Bruce Wayne: People are dying, Alfred. What would you have me do?
Alfred Pennyworth: Endure, Master Wayne. Take it. They’ll hate you for it, but that’s the point of Batman, he can be the outcast. He can make the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.
Bruce Wayne: Well today I found out what Batman can’t do. He can’t endure this. Today you get to say “I told you so.”
Alfred Pennyworth: Today, I don’t want to.
[pauses for several moments]
Alfred Pennyworth: But I did bloody tell you.

Batman: You wanted me, here I am.
The Joker: I wanted to see what you’d do. And you didn’t disappoint…you let five people die. Then, you let Dent take your place. Even to a guy like me, that’s cold…


Batman: Then why do you want to kill me?
The Joker: [laughs] I don’t…I don’t want to kill you! What would I do without you? Go back to ripping off mob dealers? No, no, no! No. You…you…complete me.
Batman: You’re garbage who kills for money.
The Joker: Don’t talk like one of them. You’re not! Even if you’d like to be. To them, you’re just a freak, like me! They need you right now, but when they don’t, they’ll cast you out, like a leper! You see, their morals, their code, it’s a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They’re only as good as the world allows them to be. I’ll show you. When the chips are down, these, uh…these civilized people, they’ll eat each other. See, I’m not a monster. I’m just ahead of the curve.

The Joker: The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules.
[mimicking Batman’s voice]

Batman: Them?

The Joker: Look at you go! Does Harvey know about you and his little bunny?
[slams Joker into mirror]
Batman: Where are they?!
The Joker: Killing is making a choice…
[punches Joker]
Batman: Where are they?!
The Joker: Choose between one life or the other. Your friend, the district attorney. Or his blushing bride to be.
[Batman punches him again]
The Joker: [laughs] You have nothing, nothing to threaten me with. Nothing to do with all your strength. Don’t worry I’m going to tell you where they are. Both of them, and that’s the point, you’ll have to choose. He’s at 250 52ND Street and she’s on Avenue X, at Cicero.


[to Det. Stephens]
The Joker: Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can’t savor all the…little emotions. In…you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards?

Rachel Dawes: [voice over] Dear Bruce, I need to be honest and clear. I’m going to marry Harvey Dent. I love him and I want to spend the rest of my life with him. When I told you that if Gotham no longer needed Batman we could be together, I meant it. But now I’m sure the day won’t come when you no longer need Batman. I hope it does and if it does I will be there, but as your friend. I’m sorry to let you down. If you lose your faith in me, please keep your faith in people. Love, now and always, Rachel.



[after Rachel’s death]
Bruce Wayne: Did I bring this on her? I was meant to inspire good. Not madness, not death.
Alfred Pennyworth: You have inspired good, but you spat in the faces of Gotham’s criminals. Didn’t you think there might be some casualties? Things were always gonna get worse before they got better.


Bruce Wayne: She was going to wait for me Alfred. Dent doesn’t know. He can never know.
