Frances Conroy: Penny Fleck
Penny Fleck : I mean, dont you have to be funny to be a comedian?
Penny Fleck : I never heard him crying, he's always been such a happy little boy.
Penny Fleck : [referring to Thomas Wayne] He's an extraordinary man, Happy. A very powerful man. We were in love. He said it was best that we not be together because of appearances. And I couldn't tell anyone because, well, I signed some papers. And besides, you can imagine what people would say about Thomas and me, what they'd say about you.
Arthur Fleck : What would they say, Mom?
Good Morning Host : [Arthur and Penny are watching the news about the three Wayne Enterprises businessmen that Arthur shot and killed on the subway] There seems to be a groundswell of anti-rich sentiment in the city. It's almost as if our less fortunate brethrens are taking the side of the killer.
Thomas Wayne : Yes, that is a shame. It's one of the reasons why I'm considering a run for mayor. Gotham's lost its way.
Good Morning Host : What about the eyewitness report of the suspect being a man in a clown mask?
Thomas Wayne : Well, it makes total sense to me. What kind of coward would do something that coldblooded? Someone who hides behind a mask. Someone who is envious of those more fortunate than themselves. Yet they're too scared to show their own face. And it's those kind of people that change for the better, those of us who've made something of our lives, will always look at those who haven't, as nothing but clowns.
Penny Fleck : [Arthur laughs] Penny Fleck:
Penny Fleck : That's not funny.
