"The New Batman Adventures: You Scratch My Back (#1.5)" (1997)
Nightwing: What are you doing here?
Batgirl: Pre-dawn, the dockyards, where else would a person in a mask be?
Nightwing: This is my gig. If I needed you, I would've called.
Batman: Smugglers?
Nightwing: Gunrunners out of South America. The only cucumbers in those crates are .30 caliber. And here comes the bag boys now.

Batman: Not bad.
Nightwing: Yeah, for a guy "your" age.

Selina Kyle: I thought I felt a chill.
Batman: I want you to stay away from Nightwing.
Selina Kyle: [Chuckles] Mother birds usually know when to let their robins leave the nest. He's a big boy-wonder now. A man wonder, in fact.
Batman: I don't trust you, Selina.
Selina Kyle: Of course you don't. That's why it could have never worked out between us.
Nightwing: Is this a private party?
Selina Kyle: Don't you men ever use the door?

Nightwing: What are you doing?
Catwoman: Just collecting what's mine. The cat's-eye emerald, the pearl of Argentina.
Nightwing: How's that yours?
Catwoman: I took it fair and square. Of course, getting it out of the country was another matter. I knew about Enrique's smuggling operation.
Nightwing: So you slipped it into one of his shipments.
Catwoman: My only problem was figuring out when the shipment was coming in.
Nightwing: You played me for a sap.
Catwoman: Aw, but such a sweet sap. The money the cat's-eye will bring is enough to take us anywhere.
[Kisses Nightwing]
Nightwing: You know I can't do that.
Catwoman: I guess not. But you can't blame a girl for trying.

Batman: You all right?
Nightwing: Just brokenhearted. She led us right to the emerald, just like you said.
Catwoman: You set "me" up!
Nightwing: Afraid so.

[Last lines]
Batgirl: You all right?
Nightwing: You know me, always happy to have a little help.


Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010) (V)
Nightwing: Packs quite the punch for a toaster on steroids, huh? Need a hand?
Batman: No.
Nightwing: Okay, well, how about I just stick around and watch?

Nightwing: He's got some moves, huh? And as much I hate to belabor a point...
Alfred Pennyworth: And still that is often exactly what you do.
Nightwing: I'm chatty. It's part of my charm. I'm saying that our boy here has some skills. He's been trained and trained well. Like right there. That. He sliced that cable off his ankle before it went taunt.You don't just do that. That has to be practiced. Learned.

[to Batman after he uses a rocket to destroy The Red Hood's helicopter]
Nightwing: You know what I miss most about running with you? The toys.

Nightwing: But he is locked up, like a lot locked up. Maybe we should go for a visit.
[Looks over to where Bruce was just sitting to see him gone]
Nightwing: Could you just once say 'Let's get in the car.' Is that so hard?

Nightwing: You're gonna have to do better than that.
Batman: I did.
[Amazo explodes]


"Super Power Beat Down: Nightwing vs Winter Soldier (#1.19)" (2016)
Barbara Gordon: Hey, Dick, all of the intel I've been getting over the past 12 hours shows that there's some sort of government agent gunning for you - some sort of mercenary created in World War II, code name: Winter Soldier. Dick! What are you doing? Are you listening to me?
[Barbara receives an instant message on her iPhone with a picture of Dick Grayson exercising on gymnastic rings attached]
Barbara Gordon: Did you really just send me a picture titled "Dick Pic"?
Nightwing: I thought you'd enjoy my workout pose.
Barbara Gordon: Cute, but enough *dicking around*. It's time to suit up.
Nightwing: And I thought it was going to be a slow night.

[during their battle, Winter Soldier dislocates Nightwing's elbow]
Winter Soldier: Know any one-armed circus tricks?
Nightwing: Of course - I was trained by the best.

[last lines]

Nightwing: [rolling on the ground in great pain] I love it when you scream my name.
Barbara Gordon: [relieved] I hate you.
Nightwing: Barbara? Call Alfred.


"Nightwing: The Series: Legacy (#1.5)" (2014)
Deathstroke: Who the hell do you think you are, taking me on?
Nightwing: I'm Nightwing.

Deathstroke: You don't understand. You have no idea what these men did to me, what they made me do.
Nightwing: Actually, Slade, I do understand. I saw your service record, before and after S.H.A.D.E. I'm sorry about what happened to you. You were a good man.
Deathstroke: You saw what was written down. I was never a good man, I was a good soldier. They just made me a monster.
Nightwing: It doesn't have to be that way. You're not a slave to your past, Slade.
Deathstroke: You know, you remind me of my son, Grant. Kid, if you want my advice, what you need is...
Nightwing: I already have a father.

Red Hood: Dick Grayson, still pretending to be the detective.
Nightwing: Let me guess, you're my guardian angel, right?
Red Hood: Guardian angel? I guess you could say that.
Nightwing: Look, I appreciate what you did for me at the club, really but, I had this covered. You didn't have to murder him.
Red Hood: Murder? Let me ask you something when you kill a rabid animal, is that murder? That son of a bitch was out of control, and I put him down!
Nightwing: I don't know who the hell you think you are, but you have no right to wear that symbol.
[Red Hood removes his mask]
Jason Todd: I've earned this symbol.
Nightwing: Jason?
Jason Todd: You seem a little surprised to see me.
Nightwing: We buried you.
Jason Todd: After you and Bruce let me die. Taught me just enough to get me killed, then sent me out in the street to use as bait.
Nightwing: It wasn't like that, and you know it, Jason!
Jason Todd: What's that clown still doing alive, Dick? I've got a new perspective on life, and I'm going to do what you two refuse to do, and make an actual difference.
Nightwing: What, by killing?
Jason Todd: I've been dead! Life isn't so special the next time around. Just stay out of my way and let me do my work. I'm not going to warn you again.
Nightwing: Or what?
Jason Todd: Or I'll put you down, too.

Robin: [after Nightwing knocks out a mugger Robin was after] I could'a handled him.
Nightwing: Could'a, would'a, didn't.
Robin: You sound just like Batman.
Nightwing: I'm nothing like him.
Robin: Yeah, right. The Mask, the attitude, the long underwear.
Nightwing: Drop it!
Robin: I'd love to know what happened between you two.
Nightwing: Things change.
Robin: No kidding. You guys used to be the greatest. Batman and Robin, the Dynamic Duo.
Nightwing: Maybe you should ask him.
Robin: I did. And you'll never guess what he said. "Things change."

[Nightwing and Robin are waiting for Connor in his office]
Connor: You almost gave me a heart attack. I thought you were the Batman.
Nightwing: No.
Connor: I ran up against him once. It was a real eye-opener. Forced me to get my life together. Now I've got this great job. Even Mr. Wayne knows me. Terrific guy. Never too busy to stop and ask how my boy's doing.
[pause]
Nightwing: Mr. Wayne is a good man.


"Young Justice: Bloodlines (#2.6)" (2012)
Nightwing: Apparently the Kroloteans were snatching humans to use as guinea pigs. They were hoping to find something Something inside us. Something inside us.
Robin: What?
Nightwing: There's no English word for it. The nearest translation is... meta-gene.
Robin: What's a meta-gene?
Beast Boy: Never met-a-gene I didn't like!

Nightwing: Coming all the way from the future, you must have worked up quite a thirst.
[Gives him a glass of water]
Bart Allen: Thanks.
[Drinks then pauses]
Bart Allen: Oh. Ah, you're trying to get a DNA sample. You need my spit. Hah, that's such a Dick Grayson thing to do!
Robin: How did - ?
Bart Allen: See? I know stuff only a future boy would know.
[to Nightwing]
Bart Allen: Dick Grayson.
[to Robin]
Bart Allen: Tim Drake.
[to Beast Boy]
Bart Allen: Garfield Logan.

Bart Allen: Oops! Spoilers. This secret identity thing is so retro.

Batman: [even more stern] Despite what you may think, I'm your father Damian. Not your jailer

Nightwing: Kaldur, that was a mission! Aquagirl knew the risks, no one wanted...
Lagoon Boy: Neptune's beard! Don't coddle this traitor! He has joined forces with our king's greatest enemy!
Kaldur'ahm: Do you mean the king who hid from me the true identity of my father?
Aquaman: That was my error of judgement, Kaldur'ahm. No one else need suffer for it.
Kaldur'ahm: All will suffer if Black Manta demands it. Blood is thicker than seawater.

[walks to a station]
Nightwing: If memory serves, we've done the impossible before. I held onto this just in case.
[presses a button and reveals a Titan's Communicator]
