Quotes from The Dark Knight


I’m guessing 8 out 10 bloggers who saw The Dark Knight already immortalized reviews in the www, so I thought of just posting my favorite lines from the film.

Read. Reminisce. Ponder. Learn.

Batman: Sometimes, truth isn’t good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.

The Joker: I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can’t savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.

The Joker: I’m a dog chasing cars. I don’t have plans. I just do things. I’m not a schemer.

The Joker: This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. “If you’re good at something, you never do it for free.”

The Joker: Madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

Harvey Dent: The only morality in an amoral world is chance.

Harvey Dent: You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

Harvey Dent: The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming!

Bruce Wayne: I knew the mob wouldn’t go down without a fight. But this is different. They crossed the line.
Alfred Pennyworth: You crossed the line first, sir. You hammered them. And in their desperation they turned to a man they didn’t fully understand. Some men aren’t looking for anything logical. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

Alfred Pennyworth: Will you be wanting the Batpod, sir?
Bruce Wayne: In the middle of the day, Alfred? Not very subtle.
Alfred Pennyworth: The Lamborgini, then? Much more subtle!

The Joker: [to Rachel] A little fight in ya. I like that.
Batman: Then you’re going to love me.

Batman: Why do you want to kill me?
The Joker: I don’t want to kill you. What would I do without you? You complete me.

Yeeeeaaaah. You complete me!

A more charismatic, more psychotic Jerry Maguire right there. I wonder who would reprise The Joker’s role now that Heath Ledger’s in the afterlife. I surely hope the critics are right about him getting an Academy award. The 2nd one to get a posthumous Oscar, after Sidney Howard for the Gone with the Wind screenplay.

Christian Bale, Christian Bale… I’ve been in love with him since Little Women days. I love him. He makes me want to forget Justin Timberlake.

Because TDK’s such an amazingfantasticspectacular film, I will watch it again. In IMAX. I will even wait for its dvd release. Original copy.

Yessss. I liked it THAT much. 🙂
