You traveled the world... Now you must journey inwards... to what you really fear... it's inside you... there is no turning back. Your parents' death was not your fault. Your training is nothing. The will is everything. If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, you become something else entirely. Are you ready to begin?
Batman : Nice.
Jim Gordon : I couldn't find any mob bosses.
Batman : Well, Sergeant?
Jim Gordon : Oh, it's Lieutenant now. You really started something. Bent cops running scared, hope on the streets.
Batman : But?
Jim Gordon : We still haven't picked up Crane or half the inmates of Arkham that he freed.
Batman : We will. We can bring Gotham back.
Jim Gordon : What about escalation?
Batman : Escalation?
Jim Gordon : We start carrying semi-automatics, they buy automatics. We start wearing Kevlar, they buy armor piercing rounds.
Batman : And?
Jim Gordon : And, you're wearing a mask. Jumping off rooftops. Now, take this guy.
Jim Gordon : Armed robbery, double homicide, has a taste for the theatrical, like you. Leaves a calling card.
Batman : I'll look into it.
Jim Gordon : I never said thank you.
Batman : And you'll never have to.
Bruce Wayne : Everyone. Everybody.
Bruce Wayne : I, uh... I wanna thank you all for coming here tonight and drinking all of my booze.
Bruce Wayne : No, really. Uh... There's a thing about being a Wayne that... you're never short of a few freeloaders, like yourselves, to fill up your mansion with, so, here's to you people. Thank you.
Fredericks : That's enough, Bruce.
Bruce Wayne : Mm... I'm not finished. To all of you, uh, all you phonies, all of you two-faced friends, you sycophantic suck-ups who smile through your teeth at me, please leave me in peace. Please go. Stop smiling. It's not a joke. Please leave. The party's over. Get out.
Fredericks : The apple has fallen very far from the tree, Mr. Wayne.
