Quotes

Alfred: Vengeance blackens the soul, Bruce. I've always feared that you would become that which you fought against. You walk the edge of that abyss every night, but you haven't fallen in and I thank heaven for that.

[At Bruce's parents' grave]

Bruce Wayne: It doesn't mean I don't care anymore. I don't want to let you down, honest, but... but it just doesn't hurt so bad anymore. You can understand that, can't you? Look, I can give money to the city - they can hire more cops. Let someone else take the risk, but it's different now!

[thunder and lightning]

Bruce Wayne: Please! I need it to be different now. I know I made a promise, but I didn't see this coming. I didn't count on being happy.

[thunder and lightning]

Bruce Wayne: Please! Tell me that it's okay.

Andrea Beaumont: [enters] Maybe they already have. Maybe they sent me.

[They embrace in the rain]

The Joker: [when Batman picks up the phone in Andrea's apartment] Hello, anybody home? Listen, boopsie, even though you never call and never write, I still got a soft spot for you. So I'm sending you a fun gift, airmail! And there's no use jumping out the window this time, toots...

[Batman looks out the window and sees a toy Joker plane flying in carrying a bomb]

The Joker: The plane of the future is going to make you history!

[Batman throws a Batarang, exploding the bomb outside the window; the blast knocks him back against the wall, and the phone is left dangling]

The Joker: [laughing] Hello? Hello, operator? I believe my party's been... disconnected! HA-HA-HA-HA-HAAAAA!

Batman: Your father's dead, isn't he? You came into town early to get Chuckie Sol, so you could shift the blame to your father if necessary.

Andrea Beaumont: They took everything, Bruce. My father, my friends, my life, you. I'm not saying it's right, or even sane but it's all I have left! So either help me, or get out of the way!

Batman: You know I can't do that.

Andrea Beaumont: Look what they did to us! What we could have had! They had to pay!

Batman: But Andy... what will vengeance solve?

Andrea Beaumont: If anyone knows the answer to that, Bruce, it's you.

[silent pause]

Batman: Leave, Andy, now. Please.

[Andrea Beaumont has just called Arthur's office]

Joker: Now ain't that a co-inky-dink?

[grabs Arthur by his shirt]

Joker: Here we are discussing the old man when the spawn of his loins just happens to call! Makes you want to laugh, doesn't it, Artie?

[he laughs maniacally]

[the Phantasm goes to Valestra's mansion, but instead finds Valestra dead, along with Joker's surveillance camera and a bomb]

Joker: Whoops! Ha! I guess the joke's on me. You're not Batman after all. Looks like there's a new face in Gotham and soon his name will be all over town... to say nothing of his legs, and feet, and spleen, and head...

[the Phantasm leaps out the window just as the bomb explodes]

[Sal walks through the remains of the "Future of Gotham" park as the robots sing; then the Joker enters]

Joker: I hate that song... Gasp! Can it be? Old Sallie "the Wheezer" Valestra! Welcome, paisan! It's been a dog's age!

Salvatore "Sal The Wheezer" Valestra: [nervously] Hello, Joker. Didn't mean to drop by unannounced.

[while Reeves is trying to resist the effects of Joker's toxin, Batman appears in his hospital room]

Arthur Reeves: [gasps, then giggles helplessly] Oh, no!

Batman: Why did the Joker meet with you?

[Reaves keeps giggling]

Batman: It has to do with the gangster murders, doesn't it? He thinks you're involved. WHY?

Arthur Reeves: [giggling] I don't know!

Batman: [grabs him] That's not the answer I want!

[Reaves manages to calm down]

Arthur Reeves: Beaumont needed me to help him and his kid get out of town...

[starts to giggle again]

Arthur Reeves: He kept in touch.

Batman: When was the last time you spoke to him?

Arthur Reeves: Years ago, my first election campaign. I was running out of money and I asked him for help...

[giggles]

Arthur Reeves: He said no!

Batman: So you sold him to the mob.

Arthur Reeves: [now laughing hysterically] I was broke! Desperate! They said all they wanted was their money back!

[he collapses with laughter, as Batman leaves in disgust]

Alfred: What rot, sir! Why you're the very model of sanity. Oh by the way, I pressed your tights and put away your exploding gas balls.

Bruce Wayne: Thank you, Alfred.

The Phantasm: So, you figured it out.

Bruce Wayne: Why do you care?

Andrea Beaumont: I don't. Mom was asking.

Andrea Beaumont: Hi. Hey, what happened to you? Trip over some loose cash? It's been three days since we met and still no calls. I figured you must be dead or something.

Bruce Wayne: You expect every guy you meet to call you up?

Andrea Beaumont: The ones who are smart enough to dial a phone.

Arthur Reeves: You!

Joker: That's right, Artie. Bring in the press, why don't you. What a photo op! The councilman and his wacky pal.

Arthur Reeves: You're no friend of mine.

Joker: Oh, Artie, I'm crushed! How and ho the mighty forget. Don't you remember? You, me, Sally and the gang?

Arthur Reeves: What are you talking about? I never met them or you. I work for Beaumont. I didn't know what he was doing.

Joker: But you knew it afterwards and put it to good use, eh?

Arthur Reeves: What do you want?

Joker: To find out who's iced the old gang.

Arthur Reeves: Haven't you read the papers? It's Batman.

Joker: [pressing his joy buzzer] Wrong. It ain't the bat. Nope, nope, nope. I've seen the guy. He looks more like the Ghost of Christmas Future. Nowhere near as cute as Batboy.

Arthur Reeves: You're saying it was someone else?

Joker: Yeah, someone wouldn't mind seeing our old pals out of the way.
