The Dark Knight quotes

The Joker: Are you the real Batman?
Brian: No.
The Joker: No? Then why do you dress like him?
Brian: He's a symbol... that we don't have to be afraid of scum like you.
The Joker: Yeah, you do, Brian. You *really* do!

Batman: (as Joker is holding Rachel out a window) Let her go!
The Joker: (giving him a look) Very poor choice of words...

Batman: You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I can do those things. Because I'm not a hero, not like Dent. I killed those people. That's what I can be.
Lt. James Gordon: No, no, you can't! You're *not*!
Batman: I'm whatever Gotham needs me to be. (cut to Gordon at Dent's funeral)
Lt. James Gordon: A hero. Not the hero we deserved but the hero we needed. Nothing less than a knight. Shining. (Gordon is shown on top of Gotham Central. An axe is in his hand. He is being watched by an assortment of reporters and police officers. The next lines are heard in voiceover)
Lt. James Gordon: They'll hunt you.
Batman: You'll hunt me. You'll condemn me. Set the dogs on me. (Gordon takes the axe to the bat light)
Batman: Because that's what needs to happen.
Batman: (Alfred is shown burning the note from Rachel) Because sometimes the truth isn't good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. (We see Lucius Fox type his name into the sonar machine. The machinery around him sparks and the sonar screen fades out. Lucius smiles and walks away)
Batman: Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.

The Joker: (to Det. Stephens) Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the... little emotions. In... you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards?

Salvatore Maroni: Look, if I tell you, will you let me go?
Two-Face: Can't hurt your chances.
Salvatore Maroni: It was Ramirez. (Two-Face pulls the coin out and co*** his gun)
Salvatore Maroni: (panicking) But you said...
Two-Face: I said it couldn't hurt your chances. (flips coin; good side)
Two-Face: You're a lucky man. (flips again; bad side)
Two-Face: He's not.
Salvatore Maroni: Who?
Two-Face: (buckles seat belt) Your driver. (He shoots the driver in the back; the car goes flying off the road)

The Joker: (to Gambol's thugs, being held helpless by his own) Now, our operation is small, but there's a lot of potential for "aggressive" expansion. So, which one of you fine gentlemen would like to join our team? Oh, there's only one spot open right now, so we're gonna have... (breaks pool cue over knee)
The Joker: Tryouts. (throws broken pool cue at the thugs)
The Joker: Make it fast.

Lt. James Gordon: They'll hunt you.
Batman: You'll hunt me. You'll condemn me. Set the dogs on me. Because that's what needs to happen.
