A flashback later on reveals what Bruce realized: that [[spoiler:Joker/Jack is the one who killed Thomas and Martha Wayne; he spoke the same line to young Bruce.]]

* GoOutWithASmile: The Joker's Smilex poison is [[DieLaughing all about this]], and as the trope entry reminds us, he goes out this way himself. (Though considering his smile is a scar, he didn't have any real choice in the matter.)
