Funny / Son of Batman

Go To

  • When Talia offers Bruce a drink
    Talia: Would you like a drink?
    Batman: Last time, that didn't go so well.
  • When the Batmobile pulls up.
    Damian: I'll drive.
    Batman: No.
    Damian: I know how.
    Batman: No.
    • Gets a repeat at the end of the movie.
  • Alfred is just wonderful, such as this gem when Damian is practicing his sword techniques against the shrub art in the garden.
    Bruce: Well, he was trained by the League of Assassins.
    Alfred: I myself am rooting for the shrubbery.
  • The aftermath of Damian vs Nightwing when the two first meet.
    Nightwing: (Calling Batman) Missing something?
    Batman: Not in the mood for games.
    Nightwing (shown sliced up over his body and bleeding from his barely won fight): I have a kid here. Says he's your son?
    (Damian is shown bound and gagged while also hanging from a lamppost. Glares at Dick and angrily moans)
    Batman (Sighs, in a resigned tone): I'll be right there.
    • While Alfred is stitching him up, Nightwing complains, "Really ticks me off after all those lectures he gave me about using protection..."
      • Just the fact that Batman gave lectures about safe sex to Dick.
    • The exchange between the two sons of Batman that follows:
    Damian: [mocking] Maybe you need more anesthetic.
    Dick: [utterly pissed] AND MAYBE YOU NEED TO GO FU-
    Alfred: Master Dick!
    Damian: Maybe you should remember who the blood son is.
    Dick: Bloodthirsty is more like it.
    • Even better, the credits give us stills of the fight since most of it occurs offscreen.
  • Batman takes Damian, now dressed as Robin, to meet with James Gordon, who's waiting next to the Bat-Signal.
    Batman: Jim.
    Gordon: (Turns around surprised) Is there any way you can show up without raising my blood pressure?
    (Batman jumps off the ledge, then Robin appears too)
    Gordon: Another one?
    Batman: I'll explain later.
  • Damian throws a few batarangs at Slade. The mercenary manages to expertly catch two of them, but the third ends up hitting him in face, almost taking out his remaining eye.

  • Damian orders the two hookers (calling them "harlots") to leave. As they run, one of them says "I don't get paid enough for this!".

How well does it match the trope?
