* Thanks to certain similarities between the characters of Patrick Bateman and [[{{ComicBook/Batman}} Bruce Wayne]], quite a bit of metahumor is to be had at the casting choice of Christian Bale in Film/TheDarkKnightSaga, complete with Youtube mashups of the two characters to create such classics as "[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot The Dark American Psycho Knight]]".

** This scene:
--> '''Luis''': Patrick!
--> '''Patrick''': '''WHAT IS IT?!'''
--> '''Luis''': Where are you going?
--> '''Patrick''': [[{{Catchphrase}} I have to return some video tapes]].
** Ten times funnier as Patrick awkwardly leaves, he again hears Luis call him and he turns to see Luis doing the 'Call me!' signal, which only causes Patrick to leave in embarrassment.

-->"I'm a corporate raider," I whispered lasciviously into the cordless phone. "I orchestrate hostile takeovers. What do you think of that?" and I would pause before making sucking noises, freakish piglike grunts, and then ask, "Huh, ''bitch?''" Most of the time I could tell they were frightened and this pleased me greatly, enabled me to maintain a strong, pulsing erection for the duration of the calls, until one of the girls, Hilary Wallace, asked, unfazed, "Dad, is that you?" and whatever enthusiasm I'd built up plummeted.
