The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Quotes
I need you to get me back in the game.
This city needs me.
Peace has cost you your strength! Victory has defeated you!
Calm down, Doctor! Now's not the time for fear. That comes later.
Speak of the devil and he shall appear.
Hang them where the world can see.
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.
Jim Gordon : Bruce Wayne?
Blind Prisoner : You do not fear death. You think this makes you strong. It makes you weak.
Bruce Wayne : Why?
Blind Prisoner : How can you move faster than possible, fight longer than possible without the most powerful impulse of the spirit: the fear of death.
Bruce Wayne : I do fear death. I fear dying in here, while my city burns, and there's no one there to save it.
Blind Prisoner : Then make the climb.
Bruce Wayne : How?
Blind Prisoner : As the child did. Without the rope. Then fear will find you again.
Crowd :Deshi basara! Deshi basara!
Bruce Wayne : What does that mean?
Prisoner : Rise.
Catwoman : My mother warned me about getting into cars with strange men.
Batman : This isn't a car.
Bruce Wayne : I watched you die.
Ra's al Ghul : I told you I was immortal.
Bruce Wayne : Must've lost my ticket.
Valet Attendant : Your wife said you were taking a cab home.
Bruce Wayne : My wife?
Catwoman : I blow that tunnel open, I'm gone.
Batman : There's more to you than that.
Catwoman : Sorry I keep letting you down.
Catwoman : Come with me. Save yourself. You don't owe these people any more. You've given them everything.
Batman : Not everything. Not yet.
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.
Doctor : I've seen worse cartilage in knees.
Bruce Wayne : That's good.
Doctor : No, that's because there is NO cartilage in your knee, and not much of any use in your elbows or your shoulders. Between that and the scar tissue on your kidneys, the residual concussive damage to your brain tissue, and the general scarred-over quality of your body, I cannot recommend that you go heliskiing, Mr. Wayne
Bruce Wayne : Right.
Catwoman : You could have gone anywhere, but you came back.
Batman : So did you.
Catwoman : Well then I guess we're both suckers.
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 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.
Jim Gordon : We were in this together, and then you were gone.
Bruce Wayne : The Batman wasn't needed anymore. We won.
Jim Gordon : Based on a lie. Now this evil... rises from where we tried to bury it. The Batman has to come back.
Bruce Wayne : What if he doesn't exist any more?
Jim Gordon : He must... he must...
Batman : This blocks the remote detonator signal to the bomb. Get it onto it before sunrise. They might hit the button when it starts.
Jim Gordon : When what starts?
Batman : War.
John Blake : Bane? What do you know about him?
Selina Kyle : That you should be as afraid of him as I am.
John Blake : You made some mistakes, Miss Kyle.
Selina Kyle : A girl's gotta eat.
John Blake : Well, you got quite an appetite.
Lucius Fox : I like your new girlfriend!
Catwoman : He should be so lucky.
John Blake : When I spotted you, I was looking for a friend of mine, Bruce Wayne. Did they kill him?
Selina Kyle : I'm not sure.
John Blake : I showed your picture to the Congressman. Guess what?
Selina Kyle : Don't tell me, still in love?
John Blake : Oh, head over heels. Pressing charges, though.
Phillip Stryver : Do those heels make it hard to walk?
Catwoman : I don't know, do they?
John Daggett : Can we get some ladies in here?
Catwoman : Careful what you wish for.
Catwoman : What's the matter, Cat got your tongue?
John Daggett : You dumb bitch.
Catwoman : Nobody ever accused me of being dumb!
John Daggett : You're dumb; for coming here.
Catwoman : I want what you owe me!
About the whole no guns thing... I'm not sure I feel as strongly about it as you do.
Selina Kyle : Keep some pressure on that, darling.
Congressman : Call me.
Selina Kyle : Look, you wouldn't beat up a woman any more than I would beat up a cripple.
Selina Kyle : Of course, sometimes exceptions have to be made.
Selina Kyle : Can I have a ride?
Congressman : You read my mind.
I don't know what you're planning to do with Mr. Wayne's prints, but I'm guessing you'll need his thumb. You don't count so good, huh?
CIA Agent : The flight plan I just filed with the agency lists me, my men, Dr. Pavel here but only one of you! First one to talk gets to stay on my aircraft!
CIA Agent : Who paid you to grab Dr. Pavel?
CIA Agent : He didn't fly so good!
CIA Agent : Who wants to try next?
CIA Agent : Tell me about Bane! Why does he wear the mask? A lot of loyalty, for a hired gun!
Bane : Or perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man, before throwing him out of a plane?
CIA Agent : At least you can talk. Who are you?
Bane : It doesn't matter who we are, what matters is our plan.
Bane : No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.
CIA Agent : If I pull that off, would you die?
Bane : It would be extremely painful.
CIA Agent : You're a big guy!
Bane : For you.
CIA Agent : Was getting caught part of your plan?
Bane : Of course... Dr. Pavel refused our offer in favor of yours, we had to find out what he told you.
Dr. Pavel : Nothing! I said nothing!
CIA Agent : Well, congratulations! You got yourself caught! Now what's the next step in your master plan?
Bane : Crashing this plane... with no survivors!
Bane : Behind you is a symbol of oppression. Blackgate Prison, where a thousand men have languished under the name of this man,
Bane : Harvey Dent, who has been held up to you as the shining example of justice!
John Blake : Commissioner, we need to keep you moving until we can get you in front of a camera.
Bane : You have been supplied with a false idol to stop you from tearing down this CORRUPT CITY! Let me tell you the truth about Harvey Dent from the words of Gotham's police commissioner, James Gordon.
Bane : "The Batman didn't murder Harvey Dent, he saved my boy then took the blame for Harvey's appalling crimes so that I could, to my shame, build a lie around this fallen idol. I praised the mad man who tried to murder my own child but I can no longer live with my lie. It is time to trust the people of Gotham with the truth and it is time for me to resign."
Bane : And do you accept this man's resignation? Do you accept the resignation of all these liars? Of all the CORRUPT?
John Blake : Those men locked up for eight years in Blackgate, and denied parole under the Dent Act, based on a lie?
Jim Gordon : Gotham needed a hero...
John Blake : It needs it now more than ever. You betrayed everything you stood for.
Jim Gordon : There's a point, far out there when the structures fail you, and the rules aren't weapons anymore, they're... shackles letting the bad guy get ahead. 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!
John Blake :Your hands look plenty filthy to me, Commissioner.
We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you... the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere. Do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate, and freeing the oppressed! Step forward those who would serve. For and army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests, and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice. This great city... it will endure. Gotham will survive!
Bane :What a lovely, lovely voice.
Bane : Let the games begin!
Hooded Man #2 : Have we started the fire?
Bane : Yes. The fire rises.
We both know that I now have to kill you. You'll just have to imagine the fire!
Trader #1 : This is a stock exchange! There's no money you can steal!
Bane : Really? Then why are you people here?
Captain Jones : I'll die before I talk.
Bane : I'm on your schedule, captain.
Trader #1 : This is a stock exchange. There's no money you can steal.
Bane : Really? Then why are you people here?
Suffering builds character.
My... father's... work... is... done.
Lucius Fox : I still don't see the need for a board meeting for the energy project.
Miranda Tate : Bruce got a lot of things right. Keeping the board in the dark wasn't one of them.
Bane : How good of you to join us, Chair, President. All I need now is one more one ordinary member. Mr. Fox, would you like to nominate?
Fredericks : No. I will volunteer.
Lucius Fox : Where are you taking us?
That is a man who fights with the power of belief.
You are as precious to me as you were to your own mother and father. I swore to them that I would protect you, and I haven't.
Don't worry, Master Wayne. It takes a little time to get back into the swing of things.
I'm so sorry. I failed you. You trusted me, and I failed you.
Remember when you left Gotham? Before all this, before Batman? You were gone seven years. Seven years I waited, hoping that you wouldn't come back. Every year, I took a holiday. I went to Florence, there's this cafe, on the banks of the Arno. Every fine evening, I'd sit there and order a Fernet Branca. I had this fantasy, that I would look across the tables and I'd see you there, with a wife and maybe a couple of kids. You wouldn't say anything to me, nor me to you. But we'd both know that you'd made it, that you were happy. I never wanted you to come back to Gotham. I always knew there was nothing here for you, except pain and tragedy. And I wanted something more for you than that. I still do.
