Quotes from the Movie The Dark Knight Rises

I am using the truth, Master Wayne. Maybe it's time we all stop trying to outsmart the truth and let it have its day. I'm sorry.

Alfred

It means your hatred... and it also means losing someone that I have cared for since I first heard his cries echo through this house. But it might also mean saving your life. And that is more important.

Alfred

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 were in this together, then you were gone.

Jim Gordon

Based on a lie. And now there's evil rising from where we tried to bury it. The Batman has to come back.

Jim Gordon

There's a point far out there, when the structures fail you. When the rules aren't weapons anymore, they're shackles, letting the bad guy get ahead... Maybe one day, you may face such a moment of crisis. And in that moment, I hope you have a friend like I did... To plunge their hands into the filth, so that you can keep yours clean!

Jim Gordon

Uh, he doesn't know or care who you are; but we've met before. It was a long time ago, I was a kid, Saint Swithin's used to be funded by the Wayne foundation; it was an orphanage. My mom died when I was small; it was a car accident, I dont really remember it. But, uh, my dad got shot a couple years later over a gambling debt. And I remember that one just fine. Not a lot people know what if feels like to, uh, be angry... in your bones. I mean, they understand, your foster parents, everybody else understands... for a while. But then they want the angry kid to do something he knows he cant do. Move on. So, after awhile, they stop understanding. They send the angry kid to a boys home. I figured it out too late. You got to learn to hide the anger. Practice smiling in the mirror. It's like putting on a mask. So, you showed up this one day in a cool car, pretty girl on your arm. We were so excited! Bruce Wayne; billionaire orphan! We use to make up stories about you, man. Legends. And, yah, with the other kids, that's all it was, just stories, but... right when I saw you, I knew who you really were. I'd seen that look on your face before. It was the same one I taught myself. I don't know why you took the fall for Dent's murder, but I'm still a believer in the Batman. Even if you're not.

John Blake

Commissioner, we need to keep you moving until we can get you in front of a camera.

John Blake

Those men locked up for eight years in Blackgate and denied parole under the Dent Act, based on a lie?

John Blake

If this man is everything that you say he is, then the city needs me.

Bruce

The Batman wasn't needed anymore. We won.

Bruce

You sound like you're looking forward to it.

Bruce

Rachel died believing that we would be together; that was my life beyond the cave. I can't just move on. She didn't, she couldn't.

Bruce

You're sorry? You expect to destroy my world and then think we're going to shake hands?

Bruce

I do fear death. I fear dying here, while my city burns, and there's no one there to save it.

Bruce
