Batgirl I - Barbara Gordon

  • The career of the character who is -together with Wonder Woman and Supergirl- one of the oldest, best known, best regarded and most beloved female super-heroes started out... because Barbara -a quiet librarian- was going to a policeman's costume ball, she accidentally got involved in a fight between Batman and Killer Moth and realized she loved the adrenaline rush.

  • In Detective Comics #359, Batgirl's first appearance, Batman wants to know Batgirl's secret identity. Batgirl doesn't appreciate his curiosity:
    Batman: But who are you? How come you're wearing that — that Batgirl costume?
    Batgirl: I was going to the policemen's ball — but I can't now! My costume's a mess! As for my secret identity — I'll exchange mine for yours...
    Batman: No deal!
    Batgirl: I thought not!
  • In the second volume of the 2011 Batgirl Barbara teams up with the new Batman (who she knows is actually her father), to defeat Livewire.
    Batgirl: (With a huge grin, and a hand raised above her head) We Win! High Five!
    Batman *Glares at Batgirl*
    Batgirl (Keeping the exact same pose) .....
    Batman *Still glaring*
    Batgirl You're really getting into the character, huh?

Batgirl III - Stephanie Brown

  • As she swings by Gage and Gordon, giving Gage a smile and a small wave:
Batgirl: "Hey, you!"
Detective Nick Gage (Off Commissioner Gordon's look) "What?"
Commissioner Gordon: "'Hey, you'?"
Gage: "No one raises an eyebrow when you talk to Batman."
Gordon: "I'm pretty sure Batman's legal, detective!"
  • If there is an interaction between Batgirl and Robin, this is bound to happen.
    Stephanie: Everything doesn't have to be about fear. There's room in our line of work for hope, too
    Damian: I don't understand.
    Stephanie: Of course you don't, you're ten! Now stop looking at my chest.
    Damian: What "chest"?
    Stephanie:(stomps off):...hate...
  • Said while she's swinging Damian round by his ankle:
    Batgirl: O? If I fight back, is that considered "child abuse"?
    Robin:...Have at thee, wench...
    Oracle: This is not going to end well...wait did he just switch to pirate?
    Batgirl: I think it's more...musketeer?
