*** But even then, that falls under the above list of "jokes made outside of his persona." For all we know, the Joker stole those lines from a basic comedian list. Which, again, underscores the point that the Joker himself is a good Supervillain...but an absolutely terrible comedian.

*** Furthermore, Terry not only has a sense of humor, he doesn't have the same sense of storied "tradition" that the Joker holds towards the famed Batman-Joker rivalry: it's not that Terry doesn't ''understand'' the "rules" (ie. fighting dirty, attempting to bring the Joker in instead of letting him run off to plot the next stupidly complicated EvilPlan, etc.) that Joker thinks exist, it's that he ''doesn't give a shit.'' So he has no scruples about insulting his enemy, because he isn't really ''his'' enemy. He's Bruce Wayne's.

** Check that: no comedian can stand a heckler, but the good ones are capable of ''not letting them get to them.'' As has been mentioned above, the Joker is actually at his core a ''terrible'' comedian. Naturally, a good heckler (re: Terry) would have oodles of material to throw at him.

** WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker shows that Batman is so completely dedicated to his mission, the rest of the Batfamily members and potential lovers (Selina, Diana, Zatanna, Lois, etc.) had no other choice to abandon him. [[GrowingUpSucks They want to grow up, have families, much more of life that playing an infinite]] CycleOfRevenge that implies being the TheCowl, leaving him LonelyAtTheTop. The disturbing conclusion is that the only relationship that ever worked for Batman was the FoeRomanceSubtext SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker had with him. He was the only one capable of accepting Batman as the {{Determinator}}, and that thought is the reason Batman never speaks of him.

* During Joker's fight with Bruce, he misdirected Batman with his right hand while flicking the knife into his left. It's a very basic magic trick, and probably would never have worked if Batman wasn't so upset. It also symbolizes how what he did appeared to just be brainwashing Tim, but he was ''actually'' making a backup of himself.

** If you listen closely, he even makes a joke about it. "I/eye on the other hand..."

*** But it was also shown in "Make 'Em Laugh" that the Joker ''is'' funny, at least to the citizens of Gotham, and the thing that keeps people from laughing at his jokes is the fact that he's recognized as one of the most dangerous criminals in the entire city. When he was disguised, he had the entire room in stitches. It was ''only'' when they realized he was the Joker that they didn't laugh. Although, for his second act, he revealed himself immediately, so that may not be the best gauge of his comedic talent.

* Joker's meltdown in response to Terry's insults becomes even more brilliant when you remember that no comedian can stand a heckler.

* Bruce Wayne falls victim to Joker's toxin at one point in the film. Given his advanced age, there's no telling how much the excessive laughter has shortened his lifespan.

* Unlike many of his other incarnations, [[spoiler:"Joker Beyond" doesn't get very distinctive last words -- he goes from sneering, "I can't hear you!" to "GAAAAAH!" But in between? Batman gives him a "Ha... ha." Batman got the last laugh.]]

** [[spoiler: Joker is able to cheat death by implanting his personality on a microchip on Tim's neck. At first it seems like this was his back-up plan, just in case something went wrong. It's a lot more horrifying when you realize that he intended to kill Batman and live, and that he was planning to body-jack Tim from the beginning, and essentially grant himself a second life.]]
