Arthur Fleck: [voice over] My mother always tells me to smile and put on a happy face. She told me I had a purpose to bring laughter and joy to the world.
Social Worker: Arthur, does it help to have someone to talk to?
Arthur Fleck: [voice over] Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?
[sitting in the subway Arthur, wearing clown costume and makeup, laughs crazily]
Subway Rider: What’s so funny?
Subway Rider: Freak!
Arthur Fleck: What?
Thomas Wayne: Gotham’s lost its way. What kind of coward would do something that coldblooded? Someone who hides behind a mask.
Arthur Fleck: [voice over] I used to think that my life was a tragedy. But now I realize, it’s a comedy.
