Batman Begins (2005)
Gary Oldman: Jim Gordon
Batman : [taps the Bat-signal] Nice.
Jim Gordon : I couldn't find any mob bosses.
Batman : Well, Sergeant?
Jim Gordon : Oh, it's Lieutenant now. You really started something. Bent cops running scared, hope on the streets.
Batman : But?
Jim Gordon : We still haven't picked up Crane or half the inmates of Arkham that he freed.
Batman : We will. We *can* bring Gotham back.
Jim Gordon : What about escalation?
Batman : Escalation?
Jim Gordon : We start carrying semi-automatics, they buy automatics. We start wearing Kevlar, they buy armor piercing rounds.
Batman : And?
Jim Gordon : And, you're wearing a mask. Jumping off rooftops. Now, take this guy.
[pulling out a file]
Jim Gordon : Armed robbery, double homicide, has a taste for the theatrical, like you. Leaves a calling card.
[shows Batman a plastic evidence bag containing a Joker card]
Batman : I'll look into it.
[turns away and walks to the edge of the roof]
Jim Gordon : I never said thank you.
Batman : [looks back at Gordon] And you'll never have to.
Ra's al Ghul : You are just an ordinary man in a cape! That's why you couldn't fight injustice and that's why you can't stop this train!
Batman : Who said anything about stopping it?
[Ra's al Ghul looks up, confused, and sees his own sword jammed into the brake panel]
Jim Gordon : [blows up the train supports] Yes!
Batman : [reverses his grip and pins Ra's al Ghul to the floor] You never learned to mind your surroundings!
Bruce Wayne : Don't turn around. You're a good cop, one of the few.
Jim Gordon : What do you want?
Bruce Wayne : Carmine Falcone brings in shipments of drugs every week, no one brings him down, why?
Jim Gordon : He's paid up with the right people.
Bruce Wayne : What will it take to bring him down?
Jim Gordon : Leverage on Judge Faden, and a DA brave enough to prosecute.
Bruce Wayne : Rachel Dawes.
Jim Gordon : Who are you?
Bruce Wayne : Watch for my sign.
Jim Gordon : You're just one man?
Bruce Wayne : Now we're two.
Jim Gordon : We?
Batman : [perched on the railing of a stairway behind Gordon's home] Storm's coming.
Jim Gordon : [closing the door to his kitchen where his wife and son are] The scum is getting jumpy because you stood up to Falcone.
Batman : It's a start. Your partner was at the docks with Falcone.
Jim Gordon : Well, he moonlights as a low-level enforcer.
Batman : They were splitting the shipment in two. Only half went to the dealers.
Jim Gordon : Why? What about the other half?
Batman : Flass knows.
Jim Gordon : He won't talk.
Batman : He'll talk to me.
Jim Gordon : Commissioner Loeb set up a massive task force to catch you. He thinks you're dangerous.
Batman : What do you think?
Jim Gordon : I think you're trying to help...
[Gordon looks away momentarily; upon turning back, he finds that Batman has disappeared]
Jim Gordon : But I've been wrong before.
Jim Gordon : [sideswipes several cars with the Tumbler; grimaces] Sorry!
Lt. James Gordon : The Narrows is tearing itself to pieces.
Batman : This is just the beginning. If they hit the whole city with toxin, there's nothing to stop Gotham tearing itself apart through mass panic.
Lt. James Gordon : How are they gonna do that?
Batman : They'll be using the train.
[as Batman describes what will happen, we cut to a camera view following the monorail beam]
Batman : The monorail follows the water mains to the central hub beneath Wayne Tower. If they get their machine into Wayne station, it'll cause a chain reaction that'll vaporize the entire city's water supply.
Lt. James Gordon : Covering Gotham in this poison!
Batman : I'm gonna stop them from loading that train, but I may need your help.
Lt. James Gordon : What do you need?
Batman : [holds up the remote to the Tumbler] Can you drive stick?
Flass : [taking a bribe] Don't suppose you want a taste? I just keep offering, thinking maybe some day you'll get wise.
Jim Gordon : There's nothing wise in what you do, Flass.
Flass : Well, Jimbo, you don't take the taste... makes us guys nervous.
Jim Gordon : I'm no rat! In a town this bent, who's there to rat to anyway?
