The Dark Knight Rises

Lucius Fox: It has a long uninteresting name. I just took to calling it... The Bat, and yes, Mr. Wayne, it does come in black.

Lucius Fox: Remember where you parked?

[Bruce nods]

Lucius Fox: [as Batman flies The Bat] Nothing like a little air superiority, isn't it?

Lucius Fox: This conversation used to end with an unusual request.

Bruce Wayne: I'm retired.

Lucius Fox: Well let me show you some stuff anyway. Just for old time's sake.

Jim Gordon: Can I change your mind about quitting the force?

John Blake: You were right, about the structures becoming shackles.

Jim Gordon: I never cared who you were...

Batman: And you were right.

Jim Gordon: ...but shouldn't the people know the hero whot saved them?

Batman: A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.

[takes off in the Bat]

Jim Gordon: Bruce Wayne?

Jim Gordon: [Gordon and his men have been brought into Crane's kangaroo court] 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?

Jim Gordon: Crane, if you think we're going to walk out on that ice willingly, you got another thing coming!

Dr. Jonathan Crane: So it's death then?

Jim Gordon: Looks that way.

Dr. Jonathan Crane: Very well. Death!

[smashes gavel]

Dr. Jonathan Crane: By exile!

Jim Gordon: [reading from the book "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens] 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.

Jim Gordon: We could use some hotter heads around here.

Batman: He was trying to kill millions of innocent people

Talia al Ghul: 'Innocent' is a strong word to throw around Gotham, Bruce. I honor my father by finishing his work. Vengeance against the man who killed him is simply a reward for my patience...

[Talia twists the knife in Batman's side]

Talia al Ghul: You see, it's the slow knife... the knife that takes its time, the knife that waits years without forgetting, then slips quietly between the bones... that's the knife that cuts deepest.
