->'''Me''': It's not a question of stomach, my friend, [[EvilIsStylish it's a question of]] ''[[EvilIsStylish style]]''!

->'''Me:''' ''Interesting. I always ''thought'' your misguided sense of self-righteousness came from some personal tragedy. I'm sorry for whatever it was that happened to you which made you the way you are.''\\
'''Bats:''' ''But?''\\
'''Me:''' ''But I '''do''' want to kill you. I imagine that's hard to hear after you just opened yourself up to me like you just did. I imagine, in your head, you saw this visit as a change to work on the nature of our relationship while I'm temporarily ''not'' a frothing-at-the-mouth, raving lunatic. You probably saw this visit [[HopeSpot as a chance for a new beginning.]] But here's the cold, hard truth, Bats... I don't hate you 'cause I'm crazy... ''[[ThePowerOfHate I'm crazy 'cause I hate you]].'' And your death - [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou preferably]], but [[PragmaticVillainy not necessarily]], by my hand - will mean an end to my reign of terror in Gotham. [[AndThenWhat When you're gone, I'll stop hurting people I don't know. I'll stop with the mayhem and murder.]] I'll lock myself up in a hospital and run out my clock staring at the walls, hopped up on premium grade pharmaceuticals that leave me so virtually ''lobotomized'', they'll have to catheterize ''and'' colostomize my holes [[{{Squick}} to keep me from becoming a nonstop self-pissing and pooping mess]]. I can tell by your face that I've disappointed you. But you're a big, strong guy who's obviously familiar with disappointment and disillusionment, so I'm thinking you can handle this information... Yes, I '''want''' to kill you. And then? Then we'll ''both'' finally be free.''\\
''({{Beat}})''\\
'''Me:''' ''Since we're being super truthful, I should also tell you [[MoodWhiplash I saw a bit of your junk when you were getting changed before.]]''

Added DiffLines:

->''"In the film ''Film/TheUsualSuspects,'' the dominating criminals reach the conclusion that to win, you just had to have the will to do what the others won't- which was co-opt by Keyser Soze. I think that's what SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is: not ''necessarily'' insane, just a man who's willing to do what the others won't; the kind of person who'll haul a dead body in a batman costume on a carefully calculated length of rope into City Hall, [[{{Troll}} just to mess with people]]. Maybe that's crazy... or maybe that's someone just really confident in himself. That's why he and Batman are evenly matched: they are [[TheChessmaster just as smart]], both know the city - the good guys, the bad guys - and [[CrazyPrepared how to prepare for the unexpected]]. But while Batman brings in [[OneManArmy greater combat skill]], the Joker has one serious advantage: he's [[PunctuatedForEmphasis willing... to do...]] '''[[TheUnfettered anything]].'''"''
