Trader #1: This is a stock exchange. There's no money for you to steal!
Bane: Really? Then why are you people here?
John Blake: Not a lot of people know what it feels like to be angry, in your bones. I mean, they understand, foster parents, everybody understands, for awhile. Then they want the angry little kid to do something he knows he can't do, move on. So after awhile they stop understanding. They send the angry kid to a boys home. I figured it out too late. You gotta learn to hide the anger, practice smiling in the mirror. It's like putting on a mask.
Bane: We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you... the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere. Do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate, and freeing the oppressed! Step forward those who would serve. For and army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests, and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice. This great city... it will endure. Gotham will survive!
Bane: Speak of the devil and he shall appear.
Dr. Jonathan Crane: So which is it to be? Death, or exile?
Stryver: [terrified] Exile!
Dr. Jonathan Crane: Sold! To the man in a cold sweat.
Jim Gordon: [reading from the book "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens] I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss. I see the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy. I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence. It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.
Batman: A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy's shoulder to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
Ra's al Ghul: You used all the tools I taught you... for a city that was corrupt, and a victory based on a lie. Now your failure will be seen...
Bruce Wayne: No.
Ra's al Ghul: ...and Gotham will die!
Bruce Wayne: NOOO!
[Bruce makes the climb]
Blind Prisoner: Deshi basara! Deshi basara!
Bane: Tell these people who you are.
Dr. Pavel: I am Dr Leonid Pavel, a nuclear scientist.
Bane: What have you done to this device?
Dr. Pavel: I've turned it into a working nuclear bomb.
Bane: Who among the people in this city can disarm this device?
Dr. Pavel: Only me.
Bane: Only you...
[breaks his neck]
Jim Gordon: You sure I can't change your mind about staying in the police force?
John Blake: You were right, about the structures becoming shackles.
Daggett: Can we get some broads up here?
Catwoman: Careful what you wish for.
[Catwoman attacks Daggett and pins him up against the wall]
Catwoman: What's the matter, Cat got your tongue?
Daggett: You dumb bitch.
Catwoman: Nobody ever accused me of being dumb!
Daggett: You're dumb; for coming here.
Catwoman: I want what's owed to me!
Bane: Behind you stands a symbol of oppression, Blackgate Prison. Where a thousand men have languished under the name of this man, Harvey Dent, who has been held up to you as the shining example of justice. You have been supplied with a false idol to stop you from tearing down this corrupt city. Let me tell you the truth about Harvey Dent from the words of Gotham's police commissioner, James Gordon; the Batman didn't murder Harvey Dent, he saved my boy and took the blame for Harvey's appalling crime so that I could to my shame build a lie around this fallen idol. I praised the mad man who tried to murder my own child, while I can no longer live with my lie, it is time to trust the people of Gotham with the truth and it is time for me to resign.; And do you except this man's resignation? And do you except the resignation of all these liars? Of all the corrupt? We take Gotham from the corrupt, the rich, the oppressors of generations who kept you down with myths of opportunity and we give it back to you, the people. Gotham is yours, none shall interfere, do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate and free the oppressed. Step forward those who would serve, for an army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened, spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed, the police will survive as they learn to survive true justice. This great city... it will endure. Gotham will survive.
