"We have to be more clever. We are smarter than this."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"What would I say...?... That I wanted her? That I didn't care if she was married? That here we are trapped in Darkseid's hell in space--death and torture all around us--and yet I would be nowhere else. Because of her. Because of Bekka. My beautiful, beautiful Bekka. God help me."

Bruce Wayne[src]
"You wanna help? Start talking!"

Bruce Wayne[src]

Bruce Wayne[src]
"Horrible things happen to children everywhere."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Let you in on a little secret, Superman. I can't fly. Bullets don't bounce off my chest. I can't bend steel in my bare hands. But criminals fear me. I'm sorry normal citizens do too, but I'd rather have that than word on the street what a nice guy I am. That sort of talk could get me killed."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"We`re splitting from the team. Going rogue."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"What's wrong, is you assumed I'd be your backup just because it's the anniversary of Harrison Grey's death! You act like we're partners, or friends!"
Bruce Wayne[src]
"You owe me. And I will collect."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"I didn't pull the trigger on Robin and Batgirl, but I might as well have. I trained them. I let them wear the costumes that made them targets. It doesn't matter that the Joker shot Barbara Gordon, not Batgirl. It was only a matter of time."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Admit it. You just wish you had the balls to do it yourself."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"You have a choice. You can crawl -- on your bellies -- and plead for her forgiveness. That's the first choice. The second is -- I hurt you. Choose one. Choose the second."

"Listen asshole, not a good time to play the hero."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"If detective work were easy, everyone would be doing it."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"You’re lucky I just screwed up once today, or you`d be dead."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"It's been quiet in Gotham of late... almost too quiet."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"I know I don’t need your forgiveness, but at the same time I do need it."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"They told me there was nothing out there, nothing to fear. But the night my parents were murdered I caught a glimpse of something. I've looked for it ever since. I went around the world, searched in all the shadows. And there is something out there in the darkness, something terrifying, something that will not stop until it gets revenge... Me."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"What’s the plan, Superman?"
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Always the hero, Clark. Just tell me goodbye and get it over with."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"It means you should shut your mouth, listen, and show a little respect, because you're sounding more and more like a cold-hearted ten-year-old boy who only cares about himself."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"You wanna beat the villain, you have to be smarter!"
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Open your eyes. Look into the darkness... as the darkness looks into you. That man you killed... he had a family, people who cared for him. Do you, punk? Will anyone care? Will anyone... miss you?"
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Clean? You can never be clean. Drugs. Prostitution. Protection. Corruption. Assassination. This city is sick. Its people are sick with fear. Now you know what that feels like. You and your kind have turned Gotham City into a Hell. Now rot in it."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Sometimes, it takes death to make you realize how precious life is."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Don't filth like you have a conscience?"
Bruce Wayne[src]
"I know who and what the Batman is all too well. Maybe I should spend some time getting to know Bruce Wayne...and other matters closer to home."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Damn the physics! We're not going to die. We're not. I won't let us!"
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Have a little faith."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"What? You'll come up with a better gas? Or you'll pick at the scabs of my psyche and find a deeper fear? Don't you understand I've faced terror a wretch like you could never imagine and I overcame. This boy has been through more than you've ever known. He's beyond your illusions too. You have no power. You're the joke you always feared you might be."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"If I've learned anything living in Gotham... it's that only the good stay dead."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"I made a very solemn vow about firearms. But for you, I'm making a once-in-a lifetime exception."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Not again..."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"We die every day. A thousand times an hour. Anyone who does this work sees it. Death. Their own... their partner's... their loved ones. We go to work anyway. Death is powerless against you if you leave a legacy of good behind. Death is powerless against you if you do your job. My father saved the lives of over four thousand people, one at a time... with his bare hands and his mind. Death was with him the entire time."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Hit the showers. Take your time. Come up with other reasons you're a terrible person and I'll shoot those arguments down when you get back."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"You don't know how I question myself and everything I've become. The right of it. The wrong of it. Not allowing myself any reward for the good. Damning myself for every mistake. Thinking of everyone who's sacrificed themselves in my war. Everyone close to me. Everyone who cared."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"Clark, I'm sure anywhere you go in the universe, you'll find stupid people."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"I really screwed up tonight. I let myself get off-balance and it was used to my disadvantage... Let my anger run away with me."
Bruce Wayne[src]
"You've got to be kidding, for what it's worth, I'm not into bondage."
―Bruce Wayne[src]
