"You see madness, as you know, is like gravity; all it take is a little push." is not an example of As You Know

Using the words alone is not using exposition of things already known by the character, the Joker is making a somewhat florid point.

Regarding the pull of Killed Off for Real:

I think Harvey is still an example. He fell 30-some-odd feet and the guy falling with him survived just fine. That qualifies as "it must be one that under normal circumstances for the setting and genre could have been reversed, undone or revealed to be some sort of trick." Given the propensity for people to fake the dead in this series, I personally would've thought he survived.

... Rachel's just crazy misuse, though.

The guy falling with him was wearing body armor and hadn't already had horrific injuries that were probably slowly killing him already. This is a series that has not had one death undone or reversed, and only one that was revealed to be a trick. It is not a series where you expect deaths not to count.

RE: The Prisoner's Dilemma

I just realized that it might have worked far better as a Two-Face scheme than it did as a Joker scheme. Two boats, with civilians and convicts—light vs. dark—on each, both filled with explosives; Two-Face would give them 1 hour (TWO halves of 30 mins. each) to decide; if the timer went off without result, he would flip his coin and blow one up at random.

hey everybody i just noticed something i was watching batman beyond right now and in the first episode one of the jokers says to terry "lets put a smile on his face" is it possible that when joker says it in the dark knight it is a shout out to the show batman beyond.

^ The Joker's pretty well known for saying lines like that. For it to be a direct Shout-Out to Batman Beyond. I doubt it highly. As the Joker would have said plenty of times before in the comics.
