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. 🙂

  7. The pencil trick scene is probably the most awesome movie scene EVER. Second is Batman punching a dog IN THE FACE.

    ^^ I love kudos, they are delicious.


    The Joker: I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do if I caught one. I don’t have plans. I just do things. I’m not a schemer.

    Fixed (I think) IMDB had that one wrong too, but the movie is still new, so I guess that’s to be expected.

  11. MEGA TAWA TALAGA AKO NUNG ” YOu.. Complete.. Me”

    David Goyer produced really such an awesome film, the Director really brought it well. I’m watching Batman 2nd time around!

    Hey, I hope you had a grand time at bistro 🙂

  12. PATRICK: i do hope soon can be tomorrow! woohoo!

    DKGC: thanks for the correction. 🙂

    KASSY: si vj drei ang dami kinanta.

  14. i wanna know who will be the next joker! waaaaahhhhh!

  15. creepy scary joker! I loved the way he talked! Like there was something in his mouth, or like he’s trying to taste something.

  16. Loser here… kagabi ko lang napanood. I agree. I love Joker. ‘have to watch this sa iMax… kaya lang wala iMax dito sa Cebu! Huhuhuhu. *wish ko lang nasa Manila ako ngayon*

  17. si batman…

    pinanood ko yung batman begins kagabi, mamaya yung dark knight naman!

    wala akong kasama…

    bahala na si batman…

  18. “If you’re good at something, you never do it for free.”

    this is my favorite. haha. just saw it.

    imagine that. 🙂

  19. two thumbs up on heath’s portrayal of the joker. if not for him, the movie would just be another action flick.

    I loved the movie. And EVERYONE was just perfect in it. Especially the Joker.
    For Heath!
    “What doesn’t kill you only makes you… stranger,” he says. Then he rips off his mask — tada! What an entrance. 🙂

    I want to watch it again tuloy. Haha.

  21. jap

    i love the movie too
    and i love these compilation of qoutes
    thanks iya
    i havnt quite memorized thier lines yet!!
    i’d have to watch the movie again…and again!

  22. sa next overnight ko sa inyo, nood tayo! nood tayo ng guy flicks while we paint our nails and put on facial masks!

    doncha just love the contrast? :p

  23. jap

     /  July 28, 2008

    I guess part of the reason why i love the movie so much
    it’s cuz I can somehow relate to all of them…
    of course not in an evil twisted kind of way!

    and I still can’t believe that a perfectly carved male being such as heath left the world soo soon!!

    what will ever happen to our female fantasies?
    will be replaced by ugly images of a rock&roll death!!
    never the less, I say:

    “hooray to the batman, joker and harvey dent in all of us”

  24. jap

     /  July 28, 2008

    will do that!!

  25. anong “of course not in an evil twisted kind of way!”


    gusto ko lang yung nirerepresent ni harvey dent pero di ko sya type. :\ mas gusto ko pa si gordon.

    You knew Christian Bale from Little Women too!
    Alas, he stole my heart with Teddy…

    I hear he’s a jerk in real life though.
    Assaulting his mother? Come on, now.
