Quotes 

  • Lucius Fox : [to Reese]  Let me get this straight, you think that your client, one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante, who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands, and your plan is to blackmail this person?

    [Reese's face falls and Fox smiles] 

    Lucius Fox : Good luck.

  • Bruce Wayne : [standing next to the storage drawers in the applied sciences division at Wayne Enterprises]  How will it hold up against dogs?

    Lucius Fox : We talking Rottweilers or Chihuahuas? Should do fine against cats.

  • Bruce Wayne : [standing next to the storage drawers in the Applied Sciences division at Wayne Enterprises]  What about getting back into the plane?

    Lucius Fox : I'd recommend a good travel agent.

    Bruce Wayne : Without it landing.

    Lucius Fox : [smiles]  Now that's more like it, Mr. Wayne.

  • Lucius Fox : [Wayne Enterprises accountant Coleman Reese believes that he's discovered Batman's secret identity] 

    Lucius Fox : [in his office]  Let me get this straight. You think that your client, one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands; and your plan, is to *blackmail* this person?

    [pause, Reese looks nervous] 

    Lucius Fox : Good luck.

  • Lucius Fox : [on the midlevel shopping center in Hong Kong]  It emits a high-frequency pulse for mapping an environment and records a response time.

    Bruce Wayne : Sonar. Just like a...

    Lucius Fox : [interrupting before he can say "bat"]  Like a *submarine*, Mr. Wayne. Like a submarine.

  • Bruce Wayne : [in an empty conference room]  I need a new suit.

    Lucius Fox : Yeah, three buttons is a little '90's, Mr. Wayne.

    Bruce Wayne : I'm not talking fashion, Mr. Fox, so much as function.

    [hands him a diagram] 

    Lucius Fox : You want to be able to turn your head.

    Bruce Wayne : Sure would make backing out of the driveway easier.

  • Lucius Fox : [On the plan to capture Lau]  Now, for high altitude jumps, you'll need oxygen and stabilizers; but I must say, compared to your usual requests, jumping out of an airplane is pretty straightforward.

    Bruce Wayne : And what about getting back into the plane?

    Lucius Fox : I'd recommend a good travel agent.

    Bruce Wayne : Without it landing.

    Lucius Fox : Now that's more like it. The CIA had a program back in the 60s for getting their people out of hotspots called Skyhook. We could look into that.

  • Lucius Fox : No, I really came to tell you that our business deal has to be put on hold. You see, we can't afford to be seen to do business with whatever it is you're accused of being. I'm sure a businessman of your stature will understand.

    Lau : I think, Mr. Fox, a simple phone call might have sufficed.

    Lucius Fox : Mr. Wayne didn't want you to think that he was deliberately wasting your time.

    Lau : Just accidentally wasting it.

    Lucius Fox : That's very good, Mr. Lau. Accidentally. Very good.

  • [examining one of the gauntlets for his new and improved Batsuit, Bruce presses a button, and the spikes are launched across the room, narrowly missing Fox before they bury themselves in the wall] 

    Lucius Fox : Perhaps you should read the instructions first?

    Bruce Wayne : [sheepish]  Right.

  • Batman : [seeing the wall of monitors for the first time at the Applied Sciences division in Wayne Enterprises]  Beautiful, isn't it?

    Lucius Fox : Beautiful... unethical... dangerous. You've turned every cellphone in Gotham into a microphone.

    Batman : And a high-frequency generator-receiver.

    Lucius Fox : You took my sonar concept and applied it to every phone in the city. With half the city feeding you sonar, you can image all of Gotham. This is *wrong*.

    Batman : I've gotta find this man, Lucius.

    Lucius Fox : At what cost?

    Batman : The database is null-key encrypted. It can only be accessed by one person.

    Lucius Fox : This is too much power for one person.

    Batman : That's why I gave it to you. Only you can use it.

    Lucius Fox : Spying on 30 million people isn't part of my job description.
