Gangster: Why don’t we hear this from Grissom?
Tony: Yeah, and what’s with that stupid grin?
The Joker: Life’s … been good to me.

Batman: It’s not exactly a “normal” world, is it?

Vicki Vale and Batman

Vicki: Hi. Tell me if I’m crazy. But that wasn’t just another night for either of us, was it? I mean, we both got to each other, didn’t we? Why won’t you let me in? Why?
Bruce: You got in.
Vicki: I’ve loved you since I met you. But I don’t know what to think of all this. I really don’t.
Bruce: Look, sometimes I don’t know what to think about this. It’s just something I have to do.
Vicki: Why?
Bruce: Because nobody else can. Look, I tried to avoid all this, but I can’t. This is how it is. It’s not a perfect world.
Vicki: It doesn’t have to be a perfect world. I just gotta know, are we going to try to love each other?
Bruce[short pause] I’d like to. But he’s out there right now. And I’ve got to go to work.

Joker: You idiot! You made me, remember? You dropped me into that vat of chemicals. That wasn’t easy to get over, and don’t think that I didn’t try!
Batman[smirks] I know you did. [punches Joker in the stomach and knocks him through a wall] You killed my parents.

Joker: Hey, bat-brain, I was a kid when I killed your parents! I mean, I say I made you, you’ve gotta say you made me … how childish can you get? [puts on a pair of glasses] You wouldn’t hit a guy with glasses, would you? Huh!? [Batman knocks him over the side]

Commissioner Gordon: He gave us this signal! [activates the Bat-signal searchlight]
