Quotes: Batman Begins
"Why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up."
— Thomas Wayne / Alfred
Bruce Wayne: What's that? [gestures at a nearby vehicle]
Lucius Fox: The Tumbler? Oh, you wouldn't be interested in that.
[Cuts to Bruce driving it around an open warehouse, with Fox in the passenger's seat, smiling nervously]
Lucius Fox: She was built as a bridging vehicle. During combat, two of these would jump over a river, towing cables. Over here on the throttle, flip that open and throttle up. This will boost you into a rampless jump. [Bruce goes to flip the throttle. The Tumbler accelerates] Not now! Not... not now, sir!
Tumbler AI: Afterburner disengaged.
Lucius Fox: We never could get the damn bridge to work, but this baby works just fine. [Bruce brings the Tumbler to a stop] So, what do you think?
Bruce Wayne: Does it come in black?
Dr Crane: Would you like to see my mask? (picks up his briefcase, takes it out) I use it in my experiments. Um, probably not very frightening to a guy like you, but these crazies? They can't stand it.
Falcone: So when did the nut take over the nuthouse?
[Crane presses a button in the case. Fear gas sprays into Falcone's face, and he immediately starts screaming]
Scarecrow: They scream and they cry. Much as you're doing now.
"People from your world have so much to lose. Now, you think because your mommy and your daddy got shot, you know about the ugly side of life, but you don't. You've never tasted desperate. You're... you're Bruce Wayne, the Prince of Gotham - you'd have to go a thousand miles to meet someone who didn't know your name. So don't... don't come down here with your anger trying to prove something to yourself. This is a world you'll never understand, and you always fear what you don't understand."
— Carmine Falcone, delivering his "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Bruce Wayne.
"People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man of flesh and blood I can be ignored, I can be destroyed. But as a symbol... as a symbol, I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting."
— Bruce Wayne
"The training is nothing! The will is everything! The will to act."
— Henri Ducard
"It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me."
— Bruce Wayne
