--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 He's probably just delusional, but... he wouldn't be the first person to crawl his way up through time. Quote2

Quote1 I've clearly underestimates the killer on the loose in the Manor's walls. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Hell of a woman, Lois Lane. Can't understand why this Superman hasn't made a move. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I know a little something about this kind of thing, Clark. You're not dealing with a rational person. There's... nothing here to make sense of. You've got yourself a Joker. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 This whole thing's a trap. The enemy's leading you on. Taunting you with your family. Charge in there and he's just going to kill them before your eyes. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Superman... banana muffin. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You're superman, dammit! You do the impossible! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 But he's still Superman. That big, booming, patronizing voice. Thinks he knows it all. But he has no idea who I am now. Who we are. Heh. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Superman and I have an ongoing debate about what would happen if we were to use the same tactics as our enemies. It always ends the same. I tell him my concerns and he smiles and says I worry too much. But the thing that always scared me was this: if heroes ever started to act like our enemies...we'd be better villains than they ever were. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I need to stop thinking like me. Or even thinking like him. I need to ask myself...what would Superman do? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Splinter has a resolve unlike any warrior I've seen before... and Bane has never had to contend with a family that inherited spirit. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I can't stop him with my fists. We didn't come here just to pull you off the wrong path. We came here because we're up against the end of this city. We came because we need you, Donatello. We need a genius. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You've come out of this stronger. All of you have. I hope you can see now the true strength inside of you. You only have yourself to thank for that, Donatello. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Turtles... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I didn't take you here to guilt you. I want you to understand. The worst thing imaginable happened right in front of my eyes when I was just a child, and all the rules of the world were broken. It took me decades to pull myself together into something new... something strong. A man who could overcome what had happened to him, but also a man who could work tirelessly to make sure that would never happen to another family. It is selfish, in a way. I'll grant you that. But it's what I can do. And I need to do something. I need to do it for them. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You want to know...why I'd save the Joker? I--I told you, Cranston. You think our lives are more important than theirs. That's how...I know I was right...I know I didn't learn from you...Because they all are. They all are. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 To Alfred. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It wasn't over nothing. I won't - I can't believe it was over nothing. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Wait. Have to fight this... have to fight the effects of the tea... fight through paranoia... hallucination... terror... and find... rage. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Believe me, Titus, I'd prefer to rely on other people, and not have it boomerang back and find the chink in my armor. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It's me. I'm behind you in the shadows. I'm going to speak now. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Bruce Wayne means nothing to me. I'm Batman with or without him. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Is he right about Gotham? Is it the city that brings out the beast in people, or is it always there... waiting for the right origin story to set it free? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Edward! "When is it a good idea to take things that don't belong to you?" I put it in riddle form. Out of respect. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I love dinosaurs. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I've tried. I've turned a blind eye to Dick's mistakes, to his shortcomings... Convinced myself that he just needed time. That he would come around. But, there came a point where I have to admit that he's had more than enough chances. He's not the partner I'd hoped for. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I want you to understand something. I know what they made you. I know how much it's hurt you. How much is still hurts you. But you are not what they made you to be. You are something more. You are what you choose to be. And you fought your way across the world so I would know what's she's about to do. So I can stop Mother once and for all. You aren't a monster, that's what they tried to make you. But it didn't work, You are a hero. Because that's the path you took yourself. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 This isn't a deal. You work for me, now. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 How could a person do something like this? How could she build an empire of trauma. And why? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 What would Dick have become without me? Would he have wanted any of this? Or is it just my will, my mind, superseding his own? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You claim to act out of love, but I don't think you even understand the meaning of the emotion! Love requires empathy. Sympathy. Compassion. There's nothing inside you but ice and hate. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 For this...and perhaps for the first time, Batman would be little more than a lifeless burden. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 He wants to take everything away from me... first Jim Gordon... now Alfred... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 What the hell is going on? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 All these monsters. Everyone I've faced in my career... I know them. I know how they think... I know how they work... But whoever this is, they're just running me through the gauntlet. They want me tired. They want me weak. The city is on fire, and it's all just a damn distraction. And I don't know for what... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 There are creatures that slip through the cracks of sense and reason... and draw strength from denial. You do not want to give them that strength. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Your work is so inconsequential to their turf war, they'll destroy it all just to keep me off their trail. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Leviathan? Leviathan? HERE'S! YOUR! LEVIATHAN! Your figurehead. Just another thug bawling for his mommy. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Back off, muchachos. You're tangling with a master of karate. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 She wanted you to join me as Robin. She intends for you to replace me, and that can't happen. Because... if you become Batman... everything falls apart. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm not your father, Talia! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Damian Wayne, my son, struck our lives like a bolt of lightning. A brief, unforgettable thunderstroke. Now my son is gone in the blink of an eye. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I wouldn't recommend going after them unless you're really itching for a fight. And I wouldn't recommend wearing that suit until you know what it means. Have a nice evening... "Catwoman." Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I don't understand it. She acted like we knew each other. But... that's not possible. Why in the world would I know someone like her? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 No more games. You're anything but stupid. It's beyond that. All the thefts! The fights! The idiotic risks! It's all leading to one unavoidable end! Is that what you want?! Do you want to DIE?! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Because Gotham isn't Batman. Gotham isn't the Owls. Gotham is... Gotham is all of us. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Look, all of you, until this time, he's only come after you tangentially, to get to me. But now, he's saying he's coming for each of you head-on. And when Joker comes for you, he goes for everything you love, everything you care about, to destroy it. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Your training isn't worth anything to me. There are people who've trained their entire lives and fallen in this war. Did you really think it was as easy as picking up a taser? What did you think? That I would see how much you've grown and take you back to my base? Tell you my real name? Give you a car and a cape and let you fight by my side? This isn't a game, Harper! If you pursue this, you will die, do you understand me?! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Seems Clayface has mutated. What little is of Basil Karlo's DNA is disappearing fast. Meaning, Clayface is no longer an actor. No longer a mimic. If he samples a person's DNA, brushes their skin, finds a single hair, he can absorb it and fully become them. Which means, he's truly a clay man now. Everyone and no one. The only question is...who will he become next? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Whoever it was that just tried to kill me, he was good. But he made one mistake. He tried to use Gotham's legends against me. But I'm the only legend this city needs. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I was traveling, Alfred. Training. For this. And I can't tell you what it means to have you by my side here. But I'm not bringing Bruce Wayne back to life. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Is that supposed to be a riddle? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Yes, father. I shall become a bat. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Hello. A lot of you don't know me. But my name ... my name is Bruce Wayne, and I'm here today to ask you something. Just one thing. And it's this ... what do you love about Gotham City? No, I mean it. You out there. Everyone looking at this broadcast. What do you love about this city? I mean, it's an awful place to live. Right? I mean, it's terrible. It's unaffordable. Dangerous and full of rain. It's a monster. So why? Why do you love it? The truth is, only you know why you stay here. Why you put up with this place. Or maybe you don't know. I didn't know why I came back until just a little while ago. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You want to arrest me, arrest me. But I'll never trust you. You're crooked. Your men are crooked. And you can rot in that coat of yours. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I know plenty about bats, Alfred. Tell me what you know about owls. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Because what he can't see, what he'll never see, is that people notice smart when smart changes the world. When it adds something. But this man, all he cares about is himself. He isn't complicated. He's no riddle. He's just a boy, standing at the center of his village, screaming, "Look at me." Embarrassing himself in a cheap hat. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 In the city today, Alfred, now more than ever, evil men, sick men, they step from the shadows to kill and terrify, and Batman will draw their fire. He will be the lightning rod. He will show the people of Gotham not to be afraid. It's the thing, Alfred. It's what makes me happy. It's all that makes me happy. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I can't fix this city in one night... but I can find one killer. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 All right. Let's talk about history. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 So yes, it's a bad plan. Anyone has a better one, I'm all ears. No? Then the bottom line is this: It's our city. All of ours. And we need to take it back from him, now, together, or it's over. For all of us. Forever. So tell me... who's in?! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 For Batman to live, Bruce Wayne always has to die! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You think you can fool me? You think so? You can't. Because I know all the tricks. Hell, I invented them. And sooner or later... I will find you. Wherever you are... you can't hide from me. Hide in the dark. Because I live here... in the dark... in Gotham. It's my city. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I know... that I am sick... to death... of OWLS! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You asked me before, what the Court did to me. What they did was show me the truth. That the Gotham City I thought I knew, my city... doesn't exist. They showed me that the real Gotham, the Gotham out there, is a city of birds, a city of owls. It's a stranger and an enemy... it always has been. And I'll tell you, Dick, if someone could've protected me from that truth, I'd have been grateful. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Get the hell out of my house. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The bats had simply hidden deeper in the caves. In the darkest parts, the parts the owls couldn't tolerate. And when the bats came back... it was with a vengeance. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Now let's break his damn back. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 So that's what it is. The ears. The belt. The gargoyle. It's not funny. It's the choice of a boy. The choice to die. I am Batman. I am suicide. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The night, Alfred. The night. She stole the night. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 All of you are to leave Gotham today. Go on vacation without your masks. Or put your masks on and find other monsters to fight. I don't care what you do. As long as you don't do it here. Bane is stronger than you. He may be stronger than me. Five days. I need five days to save Gotham Girl. And I will save her. But I won't kill you to do it. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You know how many times I've heard that? "Rest in peace, Batman!" "There's no escape, Batman!" "Time to die, Batman!" Every night. Over, and over, and over. For so many years. "This is the end, Batman!" Every. Damn. Night. And yet...I'm still here. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 And so it came. Over the next months as I fought to hold the city together, Gotham divided. Then fell. Into slaughter. Misery. Torture. Mayhem. Havoc. Betrayal. Devastation. Insanity. People think they understand me. Alfred, Gordon, the boys. All of Gotham, in its way. Even you. A man in pain, trying to save who he can. They think...but... they don't understand...anything. They don't know a thing about me. But you have to. Before. Before any of this. You have to know. What I did...what I had to do. During the War of Jokes and Riddles. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It took a few more weeks before the city saw what it was. Before people realized that these dead weren't the normal dead of Gotham. That the bodies were coming too fast. That the threat was not limited to one alley or one neighborhood. That the monsters were choosing sides. That anyone stuck between the monsters was just a thing to be put aside. To be put down. A few weeks. Before they called it a war. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 What happened next, when it was just us...no one--no one but the insane know what happened next. But I have to tell you. You have to know, Cat. Because, then, you'll know me. Who I am. And then you can decide. If I'm worth your life, your love. If you can forgive me. If you can marry me. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 He lied. That's what villains do, Ivy. They lie. And maybe, just maybe, you didn't understand this...not because you were weak or young...but because you're not a villain. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 We keep changing. Us. Over all these years. We're never the same. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Fine. Fine. Do it, then. Kill Gotham. But this city--it's just brick and concrete. It didn't free the Pirate. Or hurt those soldiers. And it damn well didn't murder your parents. The Pirate was here because I couldn't stop the chaos that bleeds this city. You hurt those soldiers because I told you to fly to them. And your parents...they were murdered because I couldn't save them! You want to kill Gotham?! For being weak! For being afraid! For failing again and again and again! I am Gotham. Kill me. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I've been on the very top. I've been as happy as a man can be. I've had the greatest joys. The greatest friends. I've had victories, and I've had... love. And then... something happens. You lose something or... someone or... and there it is again. I'm there again. Mother's tangled. Father's yelling. I'm ten and I'm on my damn knees. And I'm scared out of my damn mind. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Alfred. I was... I'm lost. I need to remember who I am. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm the World's Greatest Detective. I'll find out who hired you. And I will break them too. You can get your own damn help. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Tell me. Tell me who you are. Say the words. Shout them proudly. "I am Bane." Say it. So I can tell you... I'm Batman. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 My name is Bruce Wayne. When I was ten years old, a man murdered my mother and my father in front of me. Before the police... when the sirens were... when I could only hear them. I... I held her--my mother's hand. It wasn't cold, but there was blood. On her hand. My father was a good man, but... I could never talk... he was very... formal. But I could always just talk to my mother. She was the only one. The only one. And now. Then. She was... there was blood on my hand. But I just started. I talked even with the blood. The sirens. I... talked. I talked to her. I had to. I... still have to. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Evaluate. Reassess. A metaphor. A myth. A story. A dream. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Two sets of eyes are better than one. We can tackle this case together. Like the old days. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I want you to tell your master. Bane. Tell him, I wish, today, we could have... talked. But I just woke up, and I'm a little tired. So I'm going home. My home. In my city. But tomorrow... tomorrow, I'm coming back. With my army. And then you tell him, Harvey. Tell Bane. Tomorrow. We'll talk plenty. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Cat, I'm not fine. Everything's not fine. My world is dust... without you. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Gotham Girl. I'm sorry this happened to you. Psycho-Pirate infected you with fear. That monster at Blackgate transformed you into this creature. Red Robin. You. And your brother. You only wanted to help people. Help the city. I let it take Red Robin. Take your brother. I promise--It will not take you, too. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It's never done. There is no progress. Another year, another year. Yesterday becomes today as quickly today becomes yesterday. You will never stop. And neither will I. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Life is not a trap you make when you're ten and you're hurting. Life is a choice you make every day. Every damn day. I choose her. I choose happiness. I choose family. And I choose Batman. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You have a design for Gotham City, Master Bruce. Isn't it time the world saw it? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I've been thinking lately. About you and me. How you may be the only one who understands what I'm doing. Bane. He has something...something I want. Something I will take from him. To do it, I'll break the laws I need to break. I'll use the people I need to use. I will do whatever needs to be done. And I will never stop. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 If the Designer still has your plans... I'm about to lose everything. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I've spent my career using my wealth and power to fight costumed madmen. And they keep coming back, over and over! I keep needing to make bigger and more frightening weapons just to keep you people down! You know who I am. You know how it started... in an alley with a mugger and a gun... and I changed to stop that... and the muggers changed too... You always come back with a bigger gun. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm going to heal from this... I'm going to fight back. If you forgive me...we'll face what comes next... together. Wait for me, Selina. I'll be with you soon. Quote2

Quote1 I don't know that this battle will ever end. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 If Damian's next surprise is anywhere near as personal as the first, I might want to be alone. Wouldn't want you to see the dark harbinger of justice burst into tears. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm tired of marking the night I watched my father bleed out from his sucking chest wound and my mother from a hole in her throat. It's not how they died that should be remembered, it's how they lived. That's why, from here on out, I'll be honoring their wedding anniversary and not their The Final Night on this planet. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 As Robins you've all had your strengths and weaknesses just as I had my own steep learning curve before putting on the cowl. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 If you cared about me and what I've lost, you'd want to dredge this up! Don't you see-- there's a chance you can help me erase one of the worst days of my life, Jason! You can give me the greatest gift of all and help me figure out how to bring my son back! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 About time you showed up. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You don't beat death. You can postpone it -- hell -- we showed you might even cheat it. But make no mistake, Damian, you can never beat it. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 If I'm going to be honest with you, Damian, I'll need to be honest with myself. It's not just the upbringing that your mother forced on you that made you who you are... I'm also to blame. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You try to murder my son -- and expect to live!? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Listen to me. Something is growing in Gotham. And it's happening in the daytime. It has to do with kids like you, kids with abilities. The truth is, I need help. I need someone who knows this city, but sees it in his own way--a different kind of hero to help me. A daytime protector. Quote2

Quote1 I want you to be a global agent of chaos battling against criminal interests and threats to Wayne Enterprises. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 And one more thing: Keep Flamebird out of the Weeping Woman case until you know what you're dealing with. Murdered sidekicks tend to come back from the dead. As super-villains. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Murder isn't a curse, Kate. It's a terrible crime. And a terrible justice must be served upon its perpetrators. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Kate! Snap out of it! You're running out of time! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Don't apologize, kid: I like it. And you're right. Power untempered by compassion is a dangerous thing. I think you've got potential after all, Beetle. Tell Kord I'll be watching. And tell him--to teach you how to throw a decent punch. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 This anti-vigilante sentiment seems to be gaining momentum... and to get to the root of this, I may need to switch tactics and give Batman a rest... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 One last fight. Everyone together. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 ... All roads lead to Barbatos ... and now the world will sink ... into darkness ... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I don't fear you, Slade...I pity you. Only your narcissism gives you the "moral" high ground. I pity your children. Your ex-wife. I pity anyone who's ever loved you. We're not here because of my obsession--but because of yours. You came to me. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 His life was a complete mystery to me. And it was so early in my career I didn't follow up. I'm betting this is a copycat, but not someone with a Gotham connection. Good news, Alfred. We're going to Europe after all. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I miss him. Every second of every day. But I have to face that he's gone. And I have to honor his life's work. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 We may not completely like each other, but Bullock's a good cop. I trust him. And usually, I can trust him to be thorough. But I know he's missing something. Something covering the truth. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 He's home alone and you're in here getting drunk on his birthday. Buy a damn calendar. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Astrid Arkham came close to doing some permanent damage all because of a lie. Another lost soul who thought she was a hero instead of a villain. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Never thought I'd be perceived to be the good cop. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Fear is the only language some people understand. Criminals are superstitious. Cowardly. Quote2

Quote1 These are Wayne children. They're my responsibility. My children I've failed them. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Bodies adorning the tree...ritualistic...some form of torture...horrific... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It's always the same... whether it's religion... politics... money... it's an excuse for bad people to do bad things. Hopefully that's all that is... and not a sign of something wicked this way comes. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I don't need to punish you, Harvey... Canopy close. ...You've already got that job covered. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 This aberration is over, Jacob. I promise you that. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Jacob Kane needed an enemy to fight his war--so he made one out of a myth. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I remember now. I remember all of them. They were all caught in the crossfire. None of them were the intended targets of the attacks. I was. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Zatanna, I've faced things the teenage boy you knew could never have imagined. Horrors beyond nightmare. Beyond comprehension. But the only thing that's ever threatened to tear me apart, from the inside out, is the knowledge that I could have saved somebody if I took just one more step. Whatever is brewing, the target is firmly planted on the people I care about most in the world. I've already lost one of them. Please Zatanna. I need to do this. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Spoiler! We need to talk. It's important. It's about--He's alive, Stephanie. Tim's alive. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Batgirl was right. And the Tim Drake I've known and trained for years would see that. Instead, all I hear in your voice is desperation. Fear. Echoes of Mr. Oz's prison. Echoes of that twisted future version of yourself. I never should have let you join back up so soon. I should have gotten you help. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The Signal just went up. We'll have to table this conversation for another time. The future can wait a little longer. Send a message to Jim. Tell him I'm coming. Tell him everything's going to be all right. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I know Gotham will never be perfect. I will never be perfect. But that doesn't mean I can't fight toward the light. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It's clear our tourist in Gotham will use all of them to hurt me. That can't happen. I will uncover Karma's identity, and I will stop him. Until then, all of them stand down--and they will follow your lead, however you choose to lead them. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I should have anticipated this. Too distracted. Too comfortable. The anger I have is just fear in disguise. And I'm afraid he's right. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Your team is called the Outsiders. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Hindsight has shown me... if Harvey does ever reemerge, Two-Face always has a way of coming back all too soon afterward. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Kobra has another drug. A new creation from their labs, and in its own way even worse than anthrax. It's some sort of specific mind-controlling agent. And if we don't stop them from releasing it into the water... all of Gotham will become followers of Kobra. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I want you all to think of this place like a carnival funhouse tonight... except the only monster in here with you... is me. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Hugh Marder, their president, a man I actually like, has been working feverishly to develop technology that'll aid in the development of cancer drugs. I trusted he was working on the technology he so enthusiastically put all his weight behind. But this... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The quest for traveling faster than the speed of light. I get it. But why is it here? Was Marder testing it on himself? Trying to propel himself through space? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Keep Batman busy so he doesn't interfere with the assassination of Bruce Wayne? Whoever's behind this, I guess the joke's on them. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You want to know where your wife is, Clayface? I'm here to show you. But the truth is going to hurt. It's going to burn. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 A few months ago, after my last trouble with the Joker, all these lunatics were allowed to congregate in Old Grant Park. I thought it was a very bad idea. For them. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 "Look into their smiles," Bullock insisted. And I do. And everything clicks into place. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You know what ultimately brought down Al Capone, right? Tax evasion. You belong in Blackgate, Cobblepot. It doesn't matter how you get there. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I can't have you transforming into a bat-creature while I already have another to contend with. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Everyone outside of Arkham, everyone in Gotham, is under the influence of a mass delusion. Imagining themselves in some sort of perfect world. When, in fact, the opposite was the case. The warning signs were there. But I chose to ignore them. Right until it was almost too late. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 This is not Gotham. Gotham is not a happy place. Not a place of sunny skies, clean sidewalks, safe streets and friendly citizens. This Gotham is a lie. Scarecrow's lie. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 No doubt you can shovel it, Detective. But let me give you a friendly piece of advice... Push aside that ample gut of yours... and follow the evidence. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I don't do this for kicks, Annette. I do it to make a difference. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 People who get close to me get hurt. That's what happened with Nightwing. The Crime Syndicate exposed his true identity to the world. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I don't like Green Lanterns, traditionally speaking. Hal is a glory hound. Unpredictable. Guy is...an idiot. You...I can work with you. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I was wrong, Quinn. And not just about the murder. The old Harley Quinn would never have risked imprisonment to comfort a mother. And her son. Maybe you have changed. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Someone was being treated here. By Sanctuary. Along with a lot of other... heroes. And that someone killed Sanctuary. And a lot of other heroes. So it just... it means what we already know it means. What it always means... our hope for... redemption... is now just another hunt for vengeance. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Learn from this, Booster... Follow your gut and make the team yours. And then make sure this never happens again. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The world's afraid of us. It's necessary. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You're no different from those in Arkham, Luthor. You don't have a colorful costume or carry a deck of cards. You don't wear your psychosis on your sleeve like they do... But that's what makes you more dangerous. You can hide among us. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 My name is Bruce Wayne. When I was ten, my parents were murdered in front of my eyes. I've spent my life training to fight the same kind of criminals that took their lives. But this is different. This isn't about me. This is bigger than I am. And it's bigger than you are. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It's worse than you know, and we need help. It's a job for Superman. For you. We need the impossible. We need you to go to the center of the Earth. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 One more thing--as per our charter, I have the right to select our new interim chairman. I choose him. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You were right. We all deserve that chance. A fresh start... even me. Everyone can be a hero. This team, this place, will give them that. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Wonder Woman is missing. Aquaman isn't answering. Flash and GL are gone, and Rao has Superman. Just us. Us versus God. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Frost once asked me what this place was. My answer? The future. It's why I started this team. Batbatos, Tsaritsa...I knew the worst was coming. People would doubt my image, doubt their icons. They'd want to turn on each other. I needed to send a message of hope...of fighting together. You were that message, and you surpassed my expectations. You don't need me to unite people. That's good. Because the future still looms.... I have a Justice League case to close, personally. One final mission...one world left to save. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 As much as I hate to admit it... Caitlin Snow proves there is value in Task Force X. I may have... midjudged your... Suicide Squad. There's room in the world for both of our teams. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Gotham City. Do not be afraid. This is a prerecorded message. You know who I am. As we speak, my team and I are doing everything we can to protect you. But Gotham City is not safe. To ensure that you are, follow the GCPD to a selected evacuation site. Stay strong. Stay calm. Trust me, as you have before. I promise each and every one of you. This night will end. And when it does...you will be there to meet the morning. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Maybe... maybe it's better this way. That he should get a fresh start... without us. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 No more jokes, Jason. No more excuses. No more Red Hood! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I didn't ask you to be Robin because I wanted someone perfect. I wanted someone who can do their best. Who can learn from their mistakes. Someone who makes me a better person just by being with them. So tell me... is that you, Jason? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 ''I'm going to Apokolips and bringing Robin back -- alive!'' Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Yes, Father. I shall become a bat. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Betrayal and mutilation. The internal politics of the Suicide Squad. This place... it's like a mockery of Arkham. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You're a father. And that means one thing... You don't... get to be a bad guy anymore. Be better. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 And that attitude is exactly why you're going. You're too young to be this angry. Any unexcused absences and you're fired. No more HQ. No more Robin. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You two have a spat, and the world burns? How can you not be aware of the stakes of what you're doing? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I don't want to be jealous of him. Of them. And most of them time, I'm not. Almost all the time, I'm not, Diana, that's the truth. But sometimes... times like this... I wonder what it would be like to have what he has. Family. Home. To live with nothing to hide. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 But there's a difference between you and me. Between you and everyone. We're who we are. And you're Superman. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 This whole Teen Titans project of yours has gone off the rails. Straighten it out before I'm forced to. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Robin... it's over. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 But a bat is a messenger from the underground. It tells you what to do, not what to become. What if I missed the message, Alfred? What if I missed it all? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 But... Batman isn't about me. He never was. He's about everyone else. You taught me that, Alfred. You. Batman is about Gotham... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It all comes down to this. Everything. A thousand versions of myself, at war with me, all led by one creature. This is the final battlefield. I feel it. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 That may be. But you know who's a bigger joke than the worst Batman? The Batman he beats. Heh.' Quote2

Quote1 The Immortal Men are real. What are we going to do about it? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The most human man I know whose powers will always set him apart as alien, driven by those he couldn't save. A goddess of peace atone in a world of constant war. Forever cursed to lose an unwinnable battle. They're the best, most giving people I've ever known and they're both willing to die to keep your demon in check. That's your sacrifice. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm warning you for the last time. Release my friends. Quote2

Quote1 What I am... was born from death. So we fight, David. We fight what's outside... it helps what's within. You're a hero. And you honor us all with your strength. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Nothing new in a thirteen-year-old-boy pushing his father away with one hand... and reaching out to keep the relationship alive with the other... I should know. I did the same thing to Alfred back in the day. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The very first file we programmed into you was not a villain, was it? It was us. Your base was programmed on Superman and me. That is why you took on a form that looked like us. That's why you're different... because at your core, you hold both light and dark. You factor in hope and vengeance. The best of both of us. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 We wear masks not to protect ourselves, but to protect the lives of others, our families, friends, and associates. We fight for you and this city because we hope one day we won't be needed at all. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm not perfect, Ghost-Maker. This city is dangerous and I could always do better. But you don't understand Gotham or what it needs. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You were always meant to be Batgirl, Barbara. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Pictures. All of Alfred. I've been blind to how much Damian's suffering after his murder. Alfred was as much a father to him as I was... possibly even more. Maybe there is a chance for Damian to put the R on again... get my son... back! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I have no interest in not caring about people. I have no interest in giving up the mission I started when I was eight years old. You're sick. There's a part of you that's broken and you're angry that it's not broken in me. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Two families. Two friends. Two tragedies. Two young lives and many more destroyed. Two lifelong enemies. Too late to change a damn thing. Quote2

Quote1 ' Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Gotham's wealthy, or wealthier elite. Professionals. Highly educated. Almost none of the violence that's currently plaguing the city has landed at their front door. To them, it's a story. Something smaller than reality. Candlelight as opposed to a fire. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It's clever, Oracle. It's a fear attack that doesn't need a toxin. The tension in this city is high enough that he can get people panicking in the streets with a straw man. But panic isn't going to be to be the purpose, and in of itself. What is Dr. Crane trying to accomplish with this? What is this trying to say? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 She feels it too. We don't just know each other. We've fought together before. And well. We don't remember, but our coordination is flawless. Are we partners? Colleagues? Friends? Lovers? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I could see it in his eyes the moment we met. It was like looking in a mirror. Ever since his mother brought him to me... it was clear to me was going to be a handful. Calling him entitled would be an understatement. To the role of Robin. To taking life. And he never questioned that he'd one day be Batman. He's as strong as he is stubborn. And there is no doubt in my mind that Damian can take care of himself. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Memories reset. But maybe feeling hold -- what? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You're alive. In the here and now. I know this. Like magic -- with a curse -- you're alive. I don't need to be here again, in the past. I've learned my lessons. The guilt doesn't help me. It doesn't have a hold on me anymore. You're alive, Jason. And intend to keep it that way. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You want the truth? Or vengeance? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 SEE IT! SEE THE LIGHT NOW! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 From your birth into this world, fate has been pitiless to you. You were born to a world of suffering. Though you're capable of almost any evil, Bane. You'd never damn another innocent to a destiny like your own. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Each of these Bruce Waynes lived a different life. The last one was married, had children. This one... was Mayor. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Violence took your daughter from you. It won't bring her back. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Scarecrow was a monster -- showing me my fears! But I already knew my fears! I consider them every night as I do the job! But you -- you made me -- you -- you showed me -- Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Peacekeeper-01 is going to hurt people. The Magistrate is going to overstep in order to prove they haven't lost control. But the real danger right now is the people of Gotham City. They have been pushed to the brink, scared out of their minds. They are capable of anything right now. And Scarecrow is here, ready to push them over the brink. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I watched my parents die in that alley. I wasn't going to let that happen to my son. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 When you asked help for Warworld, I said no. But when I needed you, practically the next day, you didn't hesitate. And you were right. Your team came through. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The human capacity of for good is incredibly powerful. I believe when you take away the politicians, and the media, and the corporations, and it's just people together, they can overcome their fears. They can overcome anything. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You spent years focused on a single crime lord. That dedication isn't about glory or efficacy. There's a reason this victory matters to you. A reason why you care. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It terrifies you. Some of the other villains have built new lives for themselves and moved on from villainy. Some of them doubled down and changed their methods. But you have never changed, and now you tried the biggest attack you ever dared on the city and it failed. What could you do? The samething again but bigger? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm not used to Gotham celebrating... me. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You don't have to try to make me happy, Tim. I am happy, because you're my son. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 He's a soldier, not some mascot like the others. If he is going to be in the company of demigods, he will need to know how to defeat them. Just in case. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It's too dark. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Is there a future between the mayor and the vigilante who was once his sworn enemy? Time will tell. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Spend enough time in pain and it becomes comfortable to you. It becomes the home the world has built for you. And the tomb in which we bury ourselves. In some way, we're all orphans. Our whole lives spent in darkness. When we step into the light, we do so scared and alone. The sum of all the tragedies that have broken us. But it is from those pieces that we build ourselves -- we are both the darkness that forged us, and our will to step into the light. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I am going away, Doctor... to think bigger. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You always say that these rituals reverberate. Maybe someone was paying attention to the patterns over time. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Badhnisia doesn't need its own Batman. It needs you. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You did an outstanding job. If it's still something you were concerned about. In my eyes you've earned your place here. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 We've been tracking you since you left Gotham City, Ivy. I have no idea what you're doing in Metropolis but trust me, you're out of your league here. Quote2

Quote1 You are the most powerful being on this planet. You need to start acting like it. Quote2
