Joker (I) (2019)
Arthur Fleck: [written in notebook] The worst part of having a mental illness is people expect you to behave as if you don't.
Arthur Fleck: I used to think that my life was a tragedy, but now I realize, it's a comedy.
Arthur Fleck: For my whole life, I didn't know if I even really existed. But I do, and people are starting to notice.
Arthur Fleck: Murray, one small thing?
Murray Franklin: Yeah?
Arthur Fleck: When you bring me out, can you introduce me as Joker?
Arthur Fleck: You don't listen, do you? You just ask the same questions every week. "How's you job?" "Are you having any negative thoughts?" All I have are negative thoughts.
Arthur Fleck: My mother always tells me to smile and put on a happy face. She told me I had a purpose: to bring laughter and joy to the world.
Arthur Fleck: Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?
Arthur Fleck: How 'bout another joke, Murray?
Murray Franklin: No, I think we've had enough of your jokes.
Arthur Fleck: What do you get...
Murray Franklin: I don't think so.
Arthur Fleck: ...when you cross...
Murray Franklin: I think we're done here now, thank you.
Arthur Fleck: ...a mentally ill loner with a society that abandons him and treats him like trash?
Murray Franklin: Call the police, Gene, call the police.
Arthur Fleck: I'll tell you what you get! You get what you fuckin' deserve!
[Joker shoots Murray in the head, killing him instantly]
Social Worker: Is something funny?
Arthur Fleck: I just thought of a funny joke!
Social Worker: Do you mind telling it?
Arthur Fleck: ...You wouldn't get it.
Arthur Fleck: What do you get when you cross a mentally ill loner with a society that abandons him and treats him like trash? You get what you fuckin' deserve!
Arthur Fleck: [In Arthur's notebook] I hope my death makes more cents than my life.
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!
Arthur Fleck: Better the blind man who pisses out the window than the joker who told him it was a urinal. Know who the joker is? It's everybody.
Social Worker: They don't give a shit about people like you, Arthur. And they don't give a shit about people like me either.
Arthur Fleck: Everybody's telling me my stand-ups, are ready for the big clubs.
Arthur Fleck: I know it seems strange, I don't mean to make you uncomfortable, I don't know why everyone is so rude, I don't know why you are; I don't want anything from you. Maybe a little warmth, maybe a hug dad, maybe a bit of common decency!
Arthur Fleck: I killed those guys because they were awful. Everybody is awful these days. It's enough to make anyone crazy.
Arthur Fleck: [from trailer] I don't want you worrying about money mom, or me.
Sophie Dumond: Were you following me today?
Arthur Fleck: Uh, yeah.
Sophie Dumond: I thought that was you. I was hoping you'd come in and rob the place.
Arthur Fleck: Um, I have a gun... Can I can come by tomorrow?
Sophie Dumond: Chuckles... You're so funny, Arthur.
Thomas Wayne: Gotham's lost its way. What kind of coward would do something that cold blooded? Someone who hides behind a mask.
Arthur Fleck: [from trailer] She always tells me to smile, and put on a happy face.
Arthur Fleck: [In Arthur's Jokebook] I just hope my death make more cents than my life.
Arthur Fleck: Please, I don't support that language, just don't... DON'T!
Arthur Fleck: Ugh, why is everybody so upset about these guys? If it was me dying on the sidewalk you'd walk right over me!
Arthur Fleck: I pass you everyday and you don't notice me! But these guys? Well because Thomas Wayne would cry about them on TV?
Thomas Wayne: [after punching Arthur] Touch my son again and I'll fucking kill you!
Arthur Fleck: [from trailer] You know i do stand-up comedy, you should come see a show sometime.
Sophie Dumond: I could do that.
Murray Franklin: [from trailer] All that sacrifice, she must love you very much.
Thomas Wayne: [as Arthur is laughing at him] Is this a joke to you?
[punches Arthur in the face]
Sophie Dumond: [from trailer] You're so funny, Arthur.
Arthur Fleck: [from trailer] I feel like I know you... I've been watching you forever.
Murray Franklin: Well there's something special about you Arthur I could tell.
Arthur Fleck: But you don't listen. I'm just trying to make my smile.
