- The Joker won.Harvey’s prosecution, everything he fought for, undone.Whatever chance you got is of fixing our city dies with Harvey’s reputation.We bet it all on him.The Joker took the best of us and tore him down. People will lose hope.
- They won’t. They must never know what he did.
- Five dead, two of them cops?
- You can’t sweep that out.
- But The Joker cannot win. Gotham needs its true hero.
- No. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
- I could do those things because I’m not a hero, unlike Dean. I killed those people, that’s what I could be.
- No, no you can’t! You’re not!
- Of whatever Gotham needs me to be. Call it in.
- A hero. Not the hero we deserved, but the hero we needed. Nothing less than a knight, shining.
- They’ll hunt you.
- You’ll hunt me. You’ll condemn me. Set the dogs on me. Because that’s what needs to happen.
- Because sometimes, truth isn’t good enough. Sometimes people deserve more.
- Sometimes, people deserve to have their faith rewarded.
- Batman! Batman! Why’s he running, dad?
- Because we have to chase him.
- We’re going in! Go, go, move!
- He didn’t do anything wrong.
- Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves,
- but not the one it needs right now.
- So we’ll hunt him, because he can take it.
- Because he’s not a hero.
- He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector.
- A dark knight.
