"Batman: The Animated Series: Mad as a Hatter (#1.24)" (1992)
Dr. Marcia Cates: Bruce, you remember Jervis Tetch.
Dr. Jervis Tetch: [shaking Bruce's hand] H-hello.
Bruce Wayne: Of course. I read your proposal on using microchips to enhance the brain's potential. Sounds intriguing.
Dr. Jervis Tetch: Actually, the prototype isn't quite ready yet.
Dr. Marcia Cates: Tetch, I think we owe our founder and employer, Mr. Wayne a little more than lame excuses.
Dr. Jervis Tetch: Sorry.
Bruce Wayne: That's all right, Dr. Cates. Mr. Tetch is a valued member of our research team. I'm sure we can spare him more time.
Dr. Jervis Tetch: As you say, Bruce.
Dr. Jervis Tetch: Thank you.
Dr. Marcia Cates: [to Tetch after Bruce leaves] You got off easy this time, Tetch. But heads could roll if you slip up again.

Alice Pleasance: [about Dr. Cates] She's always like that when the big boss drops by. Cheer up. My Wayne knows what you mean to the company.
Dr. Jervis Tetch: Sometimes, Alice, I think you're the only one who understands me.
Alice Pleasance: That's just what my boyfriend says. I guess I'm lucky to have two such amazing men in my life. See you after lunch.

Dr. Jervis Tetch: Of course, intellectually, I know it's all wrong. She's got a boyfriend, after all. Better to withdraw like a gentlemen. Forget her. Turn my heart to other pursuits. Never! Look, I've already developed a circuitry card powerful enough to control a human brain. It would be so easy to make her forget her boorish beau and love me. But it would reduce her to a soulless shell. Oh, no... not my Alice. Oh, it's hopeless.

Dr. Jervis Tetch: [after hearing Alice broke up with Billy] O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Ha ha, she's mine for the asking! I'll sweep her off her feet, treat her to a wonderful night on the town and -... and nothing. Oh, what could a beautiful girl like her see in someone like me? How could I impress her?

Dr. Marcia Cates: Tetch! I don't know what you've done, but Mr. Wayne is demanding to see you in his office now! I'm warning you, if you've got my department into any kind of trouble...
Dr. Jervis Tetch: Oh, do be quiet, Dr. Cates!


Batman: Arkham Origins (2013) (VG)
Jervis Tetch: No one ever wanted to hear what Jervis had to say, he might as well have been invisible... but now, now you'll all have to pay attention! Because you won't have a choice!

Jervis Tetch: More tea, Alice?
Alice: Get away from me!
Jervis Tetch: Oh, my. It seems someone's forgotten her manners.
Alice: You're crazy!
Jervis Tetch: Not crazy, Alice, MAD! There is a difference, you know! What it is, I can't remember...
[giggles]

Jervis Tetch: You are my Humpty Dumpty, Batman! Your mind is shattering, and when I put the pieces back together, you'll be mine forever!


"Batman: The Animated Series: The Worry Men (#2.4)" (1993)
Dr. Jervis Tetch: As the great Lewis Carrol himself once said, 'One, two, one, two, through and through. And then the rope went snicker-snack. He left it dead and with its head, he went galumping back!'


"Batman: The Animated Series: Perchance to Dream (#1.26)" (1992)
Dr. Jervis Tetch: It's impossible! No one's will is strong enough to escape my dream machine!
Batman: Why? Why did you do it?
Dr. Jervis Tetch: You, of all people, have the gall to ask me that? You ruined my life! I was willing to give you whatever life you wanted, just to keep you out of mine!


"Gotham: Mad City: Follow the White Rabbit (#3.6)" (2016)
Jervis Tetch: Choose.
James Gordon: No, I won't choose.
Jervis Tetch: You will, you will, you'll certainly spill!
