"Birds of Prey: Split (#1.7)" (2002)
Jesse Reese: Darkstrike? Who comes up with these names?

[first lines]
Jesse Reese: You have the right to remain silent.

[last lines]
Jesse Reese: You two were, uh...? I mean, worked together a long time?
Helena Kyle: No, just the once. Seemed like we had everything in common. Should've been my first clue. If something seems too easy, it probably is.
Jesse Reese: So, what, you're saying complicated's good?
Helena Kyle: I'm saying it's not necessarily bad. So, you and the D.A. working a new case together, yet?
Jesse Reese: No, no, not for a while. But it's just as well, really, um, there were issues.
Helena Kyle: Mm. Reese, is she something to you?
Jesse Reese: Yeah, yeah. She was a really bad blind date.
Helena Kyle: Oh.

Jesse Reese: [restraining a suspect] Can I just ask you, do you have to do that?
Helena Kyle: What?
Jesse Reese: Beat the person 'till they bleed. There's a name for that; it's called excessive force.

Jesse Reese: Why can't working with you ever be simple?
Helena Kyle: There's nothing simple about... whatever it is we're doing.
Jesse Reese: You know, it's only complicated because you make it that way. I mean, if you followed the rules like everyone else...
Helena Kyle: Then bad guys would get away. Crimes would happen that could have been prevented. And innocent people would get hurt. Is that what you want?


"Birds of Prey: Prey for the Hunter (#1.3)" (2002)
Det. Claude Martin: A generation ago, there was a man, a vigilante who prowled New Gotham's nights claiming he was fighting for justice. All the while, and I'm not kidding about this, he was dressed as a bat.
Jesse Reese: Okay, now I know you're messing with me. A grown man fights crime and he does it dressed as a giant flying rodent?
Det. Claude Martin: I think it's safe to assume he had some issues. He called himself the Batman.
Jesse Reese: Oh, okay, now that, that's creative.
Det. Claude Martin: Oh, I didn't make it up. The point is, he attracted criminals. It was a prestige thing to fight him. You know, make your mark in the underworld.
Jesse Reese: That only explains why there are so many criminals here in New Gotham. All metahumans can't be criminals.
Det. Claude Martin: Why not? Their kind is drawn to crime, they think they're above the law.
Jesse Reese: What about this flying bat guy? He fought crime. He was a metahuman.
Det. Claude Martin: No, no, no. He was human all the way. He just, you know, had a scary dress sense. Anyway, he vanished about seven years ago, but the metahumans stayed, had families, built lives here, they're, they're here still. Some even married humans. You don't even wanna know how screwed up those kids are. You know what I'm talking about, Reese, I can tell.

Jesse Reese: Hey, why won't you just tell me your name?
Helena Kyle: 'Cause, the first time we met, you asked me who I was. But last night, you asked me *what* I was. I won't tell you my name. You haven't earned it.


"Birds of Prey: Sins of the Mother (#1.5)" (2002)
Al Hawke: I suppose you're enjoying this.
Jesse Reese: No, I'm not. Only a sick man takes pleasure in another human being's pain.
Al Hawke: I forgot... You always were above it all.
Jesse Reese: Yeah, well, I guess we just found out that you're not. You killed a woman practically in front of her own daughter. You've been charged, and you will get locked up for this.
Al Hawke: We'll see.
Jesse Reese: You really are a monster, aren't you? You just feed off of people. You suck the blood right out of 'em and you just leave them lying there broken. Only this time it's a little different, isn't it? It's you who's broken. There is no way in hell I'm letting you get away with this one. Not unless you die.
Al Hawke: We'll see.
Jesse Reese: Well, that is one thing that I can say about you: always optimistic.
Al Hawke: Jesse... Don't forget and call your mom. She doesn't like being alone.
Jesse Reese: Whatever you say, Dad.

Jesse Reese: I don't know a damn thing about you, do I? I don't know who you work for. I don't know how come you do what you do. I don't know if you're one of the good guys or one of the bad guys. I don't know why your eyes change before you're ready to fight, and I don't know why I feel your presence before I see you. But what I do know... I don't wanna see anything happen to you.
Helena Kyle: I don't work for anyone, but I do work with someone. You've seen enough to know that I'm one of the good guys. And I think you know how hard it is for me to ask for help.


"Birds of Prey: Primal Scream (#1.6)" (2002)
[first lines]
Jesse Reese: That was quick.
Helena Kyle: You trigger the Batring, I show up. That's the deal. What can I do for you, Detective?
Jesse Reese: Heh, I guess I just didn't realize it was gonna be so fast.
Helena Kyle: I'm known for my response time.


"Birds of Prey: Reunion (#1.11)" (2003)
[last lines]
Jesse Reese: Helena Kyle.
Helena Kyle: Hi.
Jesse Reese: Well, tell me... Miss Helena Kyle... what have you been up to these past five years?
Helena Kyle: Well, I am a bartender by day... and a meta-vigilante patrolling the rooftops of New Gotham by night.
Jesse Reese: You're a bartender, huh?
Helena Kyle: Yeah. A really good bartender.
Jesse Reese: Hmm. Yeah. I bet you are.


"Birds of Prey: Premiere (#1.1)" (2002)
Jesse Reese: Why don't you carry any weapons?
The Huntress: I am the weapon.


"Birds of Prey: Feat of Clay (#1.12)" (2003)
[last lines]
Jesse Reese: Well, you almost killed that man.
Helena Kyle: Not really. Even though I wanted to more than anything.
Jesse Reese: Yeah, well, you didn't. So, what do you say we try that dinner.
Helena Kyle: Yeah. Or we could... go straight to dessert.
Jesse Reese: Yeah. We could do that.
