Thomas Wayne: Especially the scary ones.

Alfred Pennyworth: Took quite a fall, didn't we, Master Bruce?

Bruce Wayne - age 8: [riding his father's monorail] Did you build this train, Dad?
Thomas Wayne: Gotham's been good to our family, but the city's been suffering. People less fortunate than us have been enduring very hard times. So we built a new, cheap, public transportation system to unite the city. And at the center... Wayne Tower.
[We see the building in the skyline from the window]
Bruce Wayne - age 8: Is that where you work?
Thomas Wayne: No, I work at the hospital. I leave the running of our company to much better men.
Bruce Wayne - age 8: Better?

[last lines]
Bruce Wayne: [presenting a "Gray Ghost" video to Trent] Could you make it out to Bruce?
Simon Trent: [signing the video] Here you go, Bruce!
[Wayne starts to leaves, then turns and looks at Trent]

The Mad Hatter: Congratulations are in order, I suppose. And you're right! This is a dream, a very special dream.
Bruce Wayne: Then you know everything about me?
The Mad Hatter: I do! But I'm only a part of your dream. The mind control apparatus I've hooked you to reveals nothing to the outside world - it's purpose is to create an ideal fantasy world for you!
Bruce Wayne: Then you're not the real Mad Hatter.
The Mad Hatter: No. Just a figment of your imagination. But that doesn't mean I'm not real - in this dream world!
Bruce Wayne: Make it stop!
The Mad Hatter: I'm crushed! You don't like the fantasy world I've created for you?
Bruce Wayne: It's not real!
The Mad Hatter: Ah! Are you the dreamer or are you part of someone else's dream? That's exactly the question Tweedledee put to Alice in 'Through the Looking... '
Bruce Wayne: This isn't some silly storybook!
The Mad Hatter: Oh, but it is! It's a beautiful story! You have love, wealth, a family, all you ever wanted! Your own private Wonderland!
Bruce Wayne: NO! I won't live a lie! No matter how attractive you make it!

Bruce Wayne: [looking over a high ledge] You're wrong. There is a way for me to wake up.
The Mad Hatter: N-now just a moment! You don't want to do anything foolish- this isn't an ordinary dream! What if you're wrong?
Bruce Wayne: Then I'll see you in your nightmares.
