Arthur Fleck: You don't listen, do you? I don't think you ever really hear me. You just ask the same questions every week. "How's your job?" "Are you having any negative thoughts?" All I have are negative thoughts.

Arthur Fleck: Have you seen what it's like out there, Murray? Do you ever actually leave the studio? Everybody just yells and screams at each other. Nobody's civil anymore. Nobody thinks what it's like to be the other guy. You think men like Thomas Wayne ever think what it's like to be someone like me? To be somebody but themselves? They don't. They think that we'll just sit there and take it, like good little boys! That we won't werewolf and go wild!

Thomas Wayne: What kind of coward would do something that cold blooded? 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 until those kinds of people change for the better, those of us who made something of our lives will always look at those who haven't as nothing but clowns.

Open Mic Comic: I think most women look at sex like buying a car. You know, like, "Can I see myself in this long term?" "Is it safe?" "Is it reliable?" "Could it kill me?" Most guys look at sex like parking a car. We're like, "There's a spot". "There is another spot, that would work." "Oh, I have to pay? - Never mind." "Handicapped? - Hope no one sees us."

Arthur Fleck: Can I ask you a question?

Carl (Arkham Clerk): Sure?

Arthur Fleck: How does someone wind up in here? Have they all, all the people committed crimes?

Carl (Arkham Clerk): Yeah, some have. You know, some are just crazy, pose a danger to themselves and others. Some just got nowhere else to go, don't know what to do, you know?

Arthur Fleck: Yeah, I hear you, brother. Sometimes I don't know what to do. The last time I ended up taking it out on some people. I thought it was going to bother me, but it really hasn't.

[Carl looks at him seriously]

Carl (Arkham Clerk): What's that?

Arthur Fleck: I fucked up. I've done some bad shit. And I've been thinking real hard about it. It's so hard just to try and be happy all the time.

Carl (Arkham Clerk): Hey, listen, man, I'm just the administrator assistant. A clerk. You know, all I do is file paperwork. I don't know what to tell you. But you should see somebody.

[Pulls out Penny's psychiatric file]

Carl (Arkham Clerk): all right. Here it is. Fleck. Penny Fleck. Let's see.

[Reads from file]

Carl (Arkham Clerk): diagnosed by Dr. Benjamin Stoner. Patient suffers from delusional psychosis, and narcissistic personality disorder. Was found guilty of endangerment welfare of her own child

[Karl hesitates and looks at Arthur]

Arthur Fleck: What?

Carl (Arkham Clerk): It says she's not your mother.

[Arthur smiles and nods]

Carl (Arkham Clerk): Uh, I'm sorry. They said I can't release these records. You know, this is not a public forum. Sorry, I get in trouble. look, if you want to bring your mom here to sign, that'll be much easier, but I can't let this go without a signature. Okay? I'm sorry.

[Arthur suddenly grabs the file and tries to take it off Carl]

Carl (Arkham Clerk): No, man! Let go man! Give it back!

Arthur Fleck: I heard this song on the radio the other day, and the guy was singing that his name was Carnival.

Social Worker: Arthur...

Arthur Fleck: Which is crazy, because that's my clown name. At work, until a little while ago, it was like nobody ever saw me. Even I didn't know if I really existed.

Social Worker: Arthur, I have some bad news for you.

Arthur Fleck: You don't listen, do you? I don't think you ever really listened to me. You just ask the same questions every week. "How's your job? Are you having any negative thoughts?" All I have are negative thoughts. But you don't listen. Anyway, I said, for my whole life, I didn't know if I even really existed. But I do, and people are starting to notice.

Social Worker: They cut our funding. They're closing down our offices next week. The city's cut funding across the board, social services is part of that. This is the last time we'll be meeting.

Arthur Fleck: Okay.

Social Worker: They don't give a shit about people like you, Arthur. And they really don't give a shit about people like me either.

Arthur Fleck: [pause] What am I supposed to do about my medication now? Who do I talk to?

Social Worker: I'm sorry, Arthur.

Arthur Fleck: No. My name is Arthur. Penny Fleck is my mother.

Thomas Wayne: Jesus. You're the guy that came to my house yesterday.

Arthur Fleck: Yes. I'm sorry, I just showed up. But my mother told me everything, and I had to talk to you.

Thomas Wayne: Look, pal, I'm not your father. What's wrong with you.

Arthur Fleck: Because I think you are.

Thomas Wayne: Well, that's impossible. Because you were adopted, and I never slept with your mother. What do you want from me? Money?

Arthur Fleck: No, I don't. I wasn't adopted.

Thomas Wayne: Jesus, she never told you?

Arthur Fleck: What?

Thomas Wayne: Your mother adopted you while she was working for us.

Arthur Fleck: That's not true. Why are you saying that?

Thomas Wayne: But she was arrested and committed to Arkham State Hospital when you were just a little boy.

Arthur Fleck: Why are you saying this? I don't need you to tell me lies! I know it seems strange! I don't mean to make you uncomfortable! I don't know why! Dad, I just want a little bit of fucking decency! What is it with you people? You say that stuff about my mother!

Thomas Wayne: She's crazy.

Arthur Fleck: She's...

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.

Alfred Pennyworth: You are her son?

Arthur Fleck: Yeah. Did you know her? I know about the two of them. She told me everything.

Alfred Pennyworth: There's nothing to know. There is no "them." Your mother was delusional. She was a sick woman.

Arthur Fleck: Don't say that.

Alfred Pennyworth: Just go. Before you make a fool of yourself.
