"Batman: The Animated Series: Two-Face Part I (#1.17)" (1992)
Rupert Thorne: All men have something to hide. The brighter the picture, the darker the negative.

Rupert Thorne: We need to dig up some dirt on our dashing D.A., something really juicy.
Candice: Well I'm afraid that's going to be a problem. Dent's so clean, he squeaks.
Rupert Thorne: Just stay on his tail, Candice. All men have something to hide. The brighter the picture, the darker the negative.

Rupert Thorne: [referring to Harvey Dent] Everyone's got something to hide. The brighter the picture, the darker the negative.

Rupert Thorne: [Reading Harvey's file] Listen to this boys. Says here that when Harvey was a little boy, he was bothered by a bully. Everyday the bully would bug him after school, until one day little Harvey got so mad, he slugged him one.
Thorne's Thugs: Oooh.
Rupert Thorne: Of course, the bully ran away, which made little Harvey very proud. Until he heard that the bully was in the hospital.
Candace: That was some punch.
Rupert Thorne: That's what Harvey thought. Except the guy was in the hospital for appendicitis. But poor Harvey felt so guilty, he never showed his anger again. And that was the start of Big Bad Harv.
Harvey Dent: What do you want?
Rupert Thorne: Just a few favours from the D.A.'s office.
Harvey Dent: You're dreaming.
Rupert Thorne: Otherwise, as a concerned citizen, I'd be compelled to give this to the press. After all, the people of Gotham have a right to know the kind of person... or should I say "persons", they've elected. So, what do you say, Harvey? Do we have a deal?
Harvey Dent: There's just one problem...
Rupert Thorne: What's that?
Big Bad Harv (Two-Face): You're talking to the wrong Harvey.

Candace: [about Harvey's breakdown] My, this guy is crazy.
Rupert Thorne: Yeah, crazy like a fox. That little tantrum probably bought him another 10,000 votes.

Rupert Thorne: From pinching pennies to rubbing elbows with the Joker! Not bad, Sidney...
Sidney Debris: Please. Connections like HIM I can do without...

Rupert Thorne: So the famous Sid the Squid is merely a pathetic victim of circumstances... just how stupid do you think I am?
Sidney Debris: Excuse me?
Rupert Thorne: Do you think I didn't hear the rumors about the third-rate stumblebum who took out the Batman? And now you say you accidentally made a fool out of the Joker? No one's that lucky OR stupid!
Sidney Debris: But I am, honest!

[Thorne tries to shoot Sid, but suddenly... ]
Rupert Thorne, Sidney Debris: YOU?
[the Batman appears]


Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman (2003) (V)

Carlton Duquesne: Should have never got mixed up with garbage like you.

Penguin: Our only consolation is that it will take a few bats with it.

Rupert Thorne: [manages a laugh] That loser? I wouldn't wipe my shoes on him! Conway's got nothing on me. Let him talk. He could've talked his head off. No problem.

Rupert Thorne: [after Batman has broken through his greenhouse window] You'd better have the money to pay for that.
Batman: [Grabbing Thorne] Here's how it works, slimeball. I have questions, and if you have answers, I'll leave you alone.

[Thorne's men run into the greenhouse with guns]
Rupert Thorne: .38 caliber answers.
