Someone can represent what he stood for. The ideals that made Batman - justice, consequence and ironclad resolve to protect. And there is none other has the wherewithal to uphold those ideals than you, Richard Grayson.
Master Bruce has a very clear idea of human perfection towards which he constantly strives, you understand. The absolute physical mastery of the top martial artists, gymnasts or yogis... the logical deductive skills of master philosophers, forensic scientists and detectives... the understanding, discrimination and moral clarity of ultimate zen adepts... need I continue? His is a mind like no other. I have grave doubts either of us will ever fully comprehend its decisions, but we must never underestimate its strength and resilience.
Try to think of your Batman not as a memorial -- you and I know he'd hate that -- but as a performance. Think of Batman as a great role, like a Hamlet, or Willie Loman... or even James Bond. And play it to suit your strength.
You're fallible and no longer immortal -- like a small part inside of the young boy that Talia didn't destroy still believes himself to be. As you unfortunately know better than most, Bruce, each of us has a day when we realize for the first time that nothing lasts forever.
I watched him smile. I watched him cry. I watched him grow. I watched him bleed. I did my best. I want you both to know that. But I failed him... and in the process failed you. And though it may not provide your spirits with any solace, I want you to know that I grieve as a parent... for he was my son, too.
You're only human. Both of you. You'd do well to remember this the next time you're in Gotham -- every face you see, should it be an innocent or the basest villain... each and every one of them owes you their lives.
All the time I was with the master, I was isolated from the world. Now I've seen the lives of ordinary people. Their emotions run deep, but their understanding of themselves and their lives is shallow. Like children.
Batman formed the Outsiders so there would always be a "Batman" outside of Gotham. And as egotistical as it may sound, he hoped that a team representing different aspects of himself would fare best against the evil force that is gathering... that individuals with distinct abilities, when placed together, would form a unique unit capable of combating the darkness. Batman understood that there's no use in saving only one city from the abyss. That a world-view is necessary... and he wanted each one of you here to be a part of his vision to help save the future.
Master Richard carries so much on his young shoulders, the normal troubles associated with adolescence in addition to sharing Master Bruce's crusade. I only wonder if he knows how casually he is throwing away the years of his youth.
Yes, his parents are dead and it would be no small kindness not to remind the boy of it. All you need do, Master Bruce, is play the required role for one evening. It shouldn't prove too difficult for you. As simple as putting on a costume, one might say.
No. The computer isn't ready. The laptop will have to do.: Alfred
The laptop is anemic. I have no leads, Alfred. I need brute processing -- why isn't it ready!: Batman
The qubits on the quantum chips seem dodgy at the current operating temperature... the neural net continues to mire in local minima and refuses to generalize beyond the training set... not to mention, the liquid cooling system is leaking all over the cave and I doubt will ever come out of my trousers... more to the point, I am building a machine that has never -- not even in the imaginations of the engineers of its component parts -- yet existed. That is why it isn't ready.: Alfred
What you're doing is healing. You're accepting that things change. But moving on with one's life and forgetting are two separate things. And, dare I say, it's better to celebrate the way someone lived... than to be driven by the way they died.
