"My anger outweighs my guilt."
"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."
"I will not become an executioner."
"Gotham isn't beyond saving."
"DO I LOOK LIKE A COP?!"
"Well, a guy who dresses up like a bat clearly has issues."
"Tell them that joke you know!"
"I don't have the luxury of friends."

"You enjoy your party, Bruce. Some of us have work to do."
"Itís not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you."
"I spent a lot of time being scared for you. Then I heard you came backÖ the man I loved, the man who vanished...he never came back at all. Maybe one day, when Gotham no longer needs Batman, I'll see him again."
