The Dark Knight Rises quotes

John Daggett: (hearing from Stryver that Bane's attack on the Stock Exchange was successful) And what about the men they arrested?
Phillip Stryver: He said, and I quote, "They would *die* before talking."
John Daggett: Where does he find these guys? (he walks down the steps to his office and calls to one of his bodyguards)
John Daggett: Open the champagne. (enters his office)
John Daggett: And can we get some girls in here?
Selina Kyle: Careful what you wish for. (Daggett turns just as Selina pounces on him. She throws him across the room and against the wall. He tries to draw a pistol, but she pins his gun hand with her stiletto heel, forcing him to drop it)
Selina Kyle: Cat got your tongue?
John Daggett: You dumb bi***!
Selina Kyle: Nobody ever accused me of being dumb!
John Daggett: You're dumb; for coming here tonight. (Daggett whimpers as Selina leans her boot hard against his hand)
Selina Kyle: I want what you owe me! (a click is heard as Stryver puts a pistol to the back of Selina's head)
John Daggett: "Want" doesn't get. (Selina turns and looks at Stryver, who looks at her appreciatively as she lowers her leg)
Phillip Stryver: Nice outfit. Those heels make it tough to walk? (Selina spins and digs her heel hard into his calf)
Selina Kyle: I don't know. Do they? (spins, and aims Stryver's pistol at Daggett's head)
Selina Kyle: So where is it?
John Daggett: Where's what?
Selina Kyle: The program. The 'Clean Slate'.
John Daggett: The ultimate tool for a master thief with a record. (Daggett's bodyguard bursts in with his gun drawn)
Selina Kyle: (furious) Where is it?
John Daggett: The 'Clean Slate'? Where you type in someone's name, date of birth and in a few minutes, they're gone from every database on Earth? Sounds a little too good to be true.
Selina Kyle: You're lying! Rykin Data took it to prototype stage!
John Daggett: That's why I bought 'em! But they had nothing! It was a gangland myth! (Bane's men emerge and begin to approach. Selina takes Daggett and holds the gun to his throat)
Selina Kyle: Stay back! (They do not hear her and continue to approach her)
Selina Kyle: I'm not bluffing!
Batman: (from nearby rooftop) They know. They just don't care. (Batman and Selina attack the henchmen. He kicks the pistol out of her hand as she prepares to shoot one thug)
Selina Kyle: You've got to be kidding me!
Batman: No guns, no killing.
Selina Kyle: Where's the fun in that? (Some of Bane's men arrive and open fire on them. Batman and Selina run across the roof to the opposite ledge, where Batman jumps and dives into the Bat. Selina turns around and sees Bane slowly approaching her. She makes the jump into the Bat's cockpit)
Selina Kyle: My mother warned me about getting into cars with strange men.
Batman: This isn't a car. (Bane watches as the Bat rises out of the alleyway and flies off into the night sky)

Bruce Wayne: Mind if I cut in? (the old man who was dancing with Selina leaves, annoyed, as Bruce starts dancing slowly with her)
Bruce Wayne: Oh, you don't seem happy to see me.
Selina Kyle: You were supposed to be a shut-in.
Bruce Wayne: I felt like some fresh air.
Selina Kyle: Why didn't you call the police?
Bruce Wayne: I have a powerful friend who deals with things like this. (notices the cat ears that are Selina's goggle lenses)
Bruce Wayne: That's a brazen costume for a cat burglar.
Selina Kyle: Yeah? Who are you pretending to be?
Bruce Wayne: Bruce Wayne, eccentric billionaire. Who's your date? (referring the old man she was dancing with and who is now watching them)
Selina Kyle: His wife's in Ibiza. She left her diamonds behind, though. Worried they might get stolen.
Bruce Wayne: Mm. It's pronounced Ibeetha. You wouldn't want any of these folks realizing you're a crook, not a social climber.
Selina Kyle: You think I care what anyone in this room thinks of me?
Bruce Wayne: I doubt you care what anyone in any room thinks of you.
Selina Kyle: Don't condescend, Mr. Wayne. You don't know a thing about me.
Bruce Wayne: Well, Selina Kyle, I know you came here from your walk-up in Old Town, a modest place for a master jewel thief. Which means that either you're saving for retirement, or you're in deep with the wrong people.
Selina Kyle: You don't get to judge me just because you were born in the master bedroom of Wayne Manor.
Bruce Wayne: Actually, I was born in the Regency Room.
Selina Kyle: I started out doing what I had to. Once you've done what you had to, they'll never let you do what you want to.
Bruce Wayne: Start fresh.
Selina Kyle: There's no fresh start in today's world. Any twelve-year-old with a cell phone could find out what you did. Everything we do is collated and quantified. Everything sticks.
Bruce Wayne: Is that how you justify stealing?
Selina Kyle: I take what I need to from those who have more than enough. I don't stand on the shoulders of people with less.
Bruce Wayne: Robin Hood?
Selina Kyle: I think I do more to help someone than most of the people in this room. Than you.
Bruce Wayne: I think maybe you're assuming a little too much.
Selina Kyle: Maybe you're being unrealistic about what's really in your pants other than your wallet.
Bruce Wayne: Ouch.

Bane: (addressing media reporters outside the prison) Behind you is a symbol of oppression. Blackgate Prison, where a thousand men have languished under the name of this man, (holds up a picture of Harvey Dent)
Bane: Harvey Dent, who has been held up to you as the shining example of justice!
John Blake: (to Gordon, at Blake's apartment) 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. (holds up Gordon's speech papers and begins to read)
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." (calls to prisoners)
Bane: And do you accept this man's resignation? Do you accept the resignation of all these liars? Of all the CORRUPT? (prisoners roar with approval)
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: (disgusted) Your hands look plenty filthy to me, Commissioner. (Back at the prison, Bane signals an arriving Tumbler, which aims its machine cannon at the prison gate)
Bane: 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 to you, the people. Gotham is yours! None shall interfere, do as you please. (the Tumbler blows up the prison gate)
Bane: But start by storming Blackgate and freeing the oppressed! (Bane's mercenaries enter the prison cells, overpower the guards, and release the prisoners, handing out automatic weapons as they come out en masse through the shattered prison gate)
Bane: Step forward, those who would serve. For an army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests. (Bane's men ransack apartments on the east side of Central Park)
Bane: And cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. (Numerous elite are seen being forcibly removed from their Fifth Avenue apartments)
Bane: Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed! (a person is tried in a makeshift court presided over by Dr. Crane)
Bane: Blood will be shed. The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice. (the trapped police officers are seen huddling together and dividing up supplies shipped down to them)
Bane: This great city, it will endure. Gotham will survive. (Bane's mercenaries load the nuclear bomb into the back of a truck)

Bane: We both know that I now have to kill you. You'll just have to imagine the fire!

Lucius Fox: (to Batman) I like your new girlfriend!
Catwoman: (she undoes his cuffs) He should be so lucky.

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.

Bane: (to Batman) Peace has cost you your strength! Victory has defeated you!
