  • 3You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the hero(Harvey Dent, The Dark Knight, 2008)
    Who doesn't love foreshadowing. This is one of the best foreshadow moments in film history. This line foreshadows Harvey Dent's journey to madness where he will become one of Batman''s most notorious villains ever.
  • 4It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.(Batman, Batman Begins, 2005)
    This is the line that separates Bruce Wayne from Batman. Bruce Wayne, the billionaire playboy versus Batman, masked hero. When all is said and done, Bruce Wayne is the mask. Batman is who he really is.

    This is an epic speech given to Jimmy Gordon by James Gordon at the end of The Dark Knight. Gotham City is a city that does not deserve a white knight.

  • 8I won't bury you. I've buried enough members of the Wayne family.(Alfred, The Dark Knight Rises, 2012)
    The trilogy didn't have a whole lot of Alfred character development. This is one scene that did have some character development. Like the comic book, Knightfall, Alfred refuses to watch Bruce Wayne get killed at the hands of Bane. He pours his heart and soul out to Bruce but is balked by him, so he leaves. This quote had to be in the top 10.
  • 9This city deserves a better class of criminal. And I'm going to give it to them.(The Joker, The Dark Knight, 2008)
    A truer line has never been spoken. In a time when Gotham City is only controlled by the mob, only a supervillain can rise up and destroy everything good and decent in Gotham.
  • 10I think you and I are destined to do this forever.(The Joker, The Dark Knight, 2008)
    This is the relationship between Batman and The Joker since the beginning of their existence. No matter what heppens to The Joker, even death, The Joker will always return to challenge The Dark Knight.
