--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I didn't take you here to guilt you. I want you to understand. The worst thing imaginable happened right in front of my eyes when I was just a child, and all the rules of the world were broken. It took me decades to pull myself together into something new... something strong. A man who could overcome what had happened to him, but also a man who could work tirelessly to make sure that would never happen to another family. It is selfish, in a way. I'll grant you that. But it's what I can do. And I need to do something. I need to do it for them. Quote2

Quote1 Is he right about Gotham? Is it the city that brings out the beast in people, or is it always there... waiting for the right origin story to set it free? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I've tried. I've turned a blind eye to Dick's mistakes, to his shortcomings... Convinced myself that he just needed time. That he would come around. But, there came a point where I have to admit that he's had more than enough chances. He's not the partner I'd hoped for. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I want you to understand something. I know what they made you. I know how much it's hurt you. How much is still hurts you. But you are not what they made you to be. You are something more. You are what you choose to be. And you fought your way across the world so I would know what's she's about to do. So I can stop Mother once and for all. You aren't a monster, that's what they tried to make you. But it didn't work, You are a hero. Because that's the path you took yourself. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 This isn't a deal. You work for me, now. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 He wants to take everything away from me... first Jim Gordon... now Alfred... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 What the hell is going on? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 All these monsters. Everyone I've faced in my career... I know them. I know how they think... I know how they work... But whoever this is, they're just running me through the gauntlet. They want me tired. They want me weak. The city is on fire, and it's all just a damn distraction. And I don't know for what... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 There are creatures that slip through the cracks of sense and reason... and draw strength from denial. You do not want to give them that strength. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Your training isn't worth anything to me. There are people who've trained their entire lives and fallen in this war. Did you really think it was as easy as picking up a taser? What did you think? That I would see how much you've grown and take you back to my base? Tell you my real name? Give you a car and a cape and let you fight by my side? This isn't a game, Harper! If you pursue this, you will die, do you understand me?! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Seems Clayface has mutated. What little is of Basil Karlo's DNA is disappearing fast. Meaning, Clayface is no longer an actor. No longer a mimic. If he samples a person's DNA, brushes their skin, finds a single hair, he can absorb it and fully become them. Which means, he's truly a clay man now. Everyone and no one. The only question is...who will he become next? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Whoever it was that just tried to kill me, he was good. But he made one mistake. He tried to use Gotham's legends against me. But I'm the only legend this city needs. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I was traveling, Alfred. Training. For this. And I can't tell you what it means to have you by my side here. But I'm not bringing Bruce Wayne back to life. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Is that supposed to be a riddle? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Yes, father. I shall become a bat. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Hello. A lot of you don't know me. But my name ... my name is Bruce Wayne, and I'm here today to ask you something. Just one thing. And it's this ... what do you love about Gotham City? No, I mean it. You out there. Everyone looking at this broadcast. What do you love about this city? I mean, it's an awful place to live. Right? I mean, it's terrible. It's unaffordable. Dangerous and full of rain. It's a monster. So why? Why do you love it? The truth is, only you know why you stay here. Why you put up with this place. Or maybe you don't know. I didn't know why I came back until just a little while ago. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You want to arrest me, arrest me. But I'll never trust you. You're crooked. Your men are crooked. And you can rot in that coat of yours. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I know plenty about bats, Alfred. Tell me what you know about owls. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Because what he can't see, what he'll never see, is that people notice smart when smart changes the world. When it adds something. But this man, all he cares about is himself. He isn't complicated. He's no riddle. He's just a boy, standing at the center of his village, screaming, "Look at me." Embarrassing himself in a cheap hat. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 In the city today, Alfred, now more than ever, evil men, sick men, they step from the shadows to kill and terrify, and Batman will draw their fire. He will be the lightning rod. He will show the people of Gotham not to be afraid. It's the thing, Alfred. It's what makes me happy. It's all that makes me happy. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I can't fix this city in one night... but I can find one killer. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 All right. Let's talk about history. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 So yes, it's a bad plan. Anyone has a better one, I'm all ears. No? Then the bottom line is this: It's our city. All of ours. And we need to take it back from him, now, together, or it's over. For all of us. Forever. So tell me... who's in?! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 For Batman to live, Bruce Wayne always has to die! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You think you can fool me? You think so? You can't. Because I know all the tricks. Hell, I invented them. And sooner or later... I will find you. Wherever you are... you can't hide from me. Hide in the dark. Because I live here... in the dark... in Gotham. It's my city. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I know... that I am sick... to death... of OWLS! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You asked me before, what the Court did to me. What they did was show me the truth. That the Gotham City I thought I knew, my city... doesn't exist. They showed me that the real Gotham, the Gotham out there, is a city of birds, a city of owls. It's a stranger and an enemy... it always has been. And I'll tell you, Dick, if someone could've protected me from that truth, I'd have been grateful. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Get the hell out of my house. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The bats had simply hidden deeper in the caves. In the darkest parts, the parts the owls couldn't tolerate. And when the bats came back... it was with a vengeance. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Now let's break his damn back. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 So that's what it is. The ears. The belt. The gargoyle. It's not funny. It's the choice of a boy. The choice to die. I am Batman. I am suicide. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 All of you are to leave Gotham today. Go on vacation without your masks. Or put your masks on and find other monsters to fight. I don't care what you do. As long as you don't do it here. Bane is stronger than you. He may be stronger than me. Five days. I need five days to save Gotham Girl. And I will save her. But I won't kill you to do it. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You know how many times I've heard that? "Rest in peace, Batman!" "There's no escape, Batman!" "Time to die, Batman!" Every night. Over, and over, and over. For so many years. "This is the end, Batman!" Every. Damn. Night. And yet...I'm still here. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 And so it came. Over the next months as I fought to hold the city together, Gotham divided. Then fell. Into slaughter. Misery. Torture. Mayhem. Havoc. Betrayal. Devastation. Insanity. People think they understand me. Alfred, Gordon, the boys. All of Gotham, in its way. Even you. A man in pain, trying to save who he can. They think...but... they don't understand...anything. They don't know a thing about me. But you have to. Before. Before any of this. You have to know. What I did...what I had to do. During the War of Jokes and Riddles. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It took a few more weeks before the city saw what it was. Before people realized that these dead weren't the normal dead of Gotham. That the bodies were coming too fast. That the threat was not limited to one alley or one neighborhood. That the monsters were choosing sides. That anyone stuck between the monsters was just a thing to be put aside. To be put down. A few weeks. Before they called it a war. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 What happened next, when it was just us...no one--no one but the insane know what happened next. But I have to tell you. You have to know, Cat. Because, then, you'll know me. Who I am. And then you can decide. If I'm worth your life, your love. If you can forgive me. If you can marry me. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Fine. Fine. Do it, then. Kill Gotham. But this city--it's just brick and concrete. It didn't free the Pirate. Or hurt those soldiers. And it damn well didn't murder your parents. The Pirate was here because I couldn't stop the chaos that bleeds this city. You hurt those soldiers because I told you to fly to them. And your parents...they were murdered because I couldn't save them! You want to kill Gotham?! For being weak! For being afraid! For failing again and again and again! I am Gotham. Kill me. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 My name is Bruce Wayne. When I was ten years old, a man murdered my mother and my father in front of me. Before the police... when the sirens were... when I could only hear them. I... I held her--my mother's hand. It wasn't cold, but there was blood. On her hand. My father was a good man, but... I could never talk... he was very... formal. But I could always just talk to my mother. She was the only one. The only one. And now. Then. She was... there was blood on my hand. But I just started. I talked even with the blood. The sirens. I... talked. I talked to her. I had to. I... still have to. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Gotham Girl. I'm sorry this happened to you. Psycho-Pirate infected you with fear. That monster at Blackgate transformed you into this creature. Red Robin. You. And your brother. You only wanted to help people. Help the city. I let it take Red Robin. Take your brother. I promise--It will not take you, too. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I've been thinking lately. About you and me. How you may be the only one who understands what I'm doing. Bane. He has something...something I want. Something I will take from him. To do it, I'll break the laws I need to break. I'll use the people I need to use. I will do whatever needs to be done. And I will never stop. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 If Damian's next surprise is anywhere near as personal as the first, I might want to be alone. Wouldn't want you to see the dark harbinger of justice burst into tears. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm tired of marking the night I watched my father bleed out from his sucking chest wound and my mother from a hole in her throat. It's not how they died that should be remembered, it's how they lived. That's why, from here on out, I'll be honoring their wedding anniversary and not their final night on this planet. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 As Robins you've all had your strengths and weaknesses just as I had my own steep learning curve before putting on the cowl. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I need your help, Frankenstein. To resurrect my son. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Don't think I didn't notice the restraint you just showed, Robin. Refusing to pound these fellows with the excessive force you wanted to is commendable. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 If you cared about me and what I've lost, you'd want to dredge this up! Don't you see-- there's a chance you can help me erase one of the worst days of my life, Jason! You can give me the greatest gift of all and help me figure out how to bring my son back! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm tired of hearing about what our uniforms mean -- especially from someone who's pulled the bat symbol off! And it's not a uniform -- it's a shroud, damn it! A shroud that my son got impaled like a stuck pig in! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Continue to point that gun at us... and I guarantee you will never walk again. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Welcome back to Gotham, McKillen. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I got myself pinched for a reason, my dimwitted friend. I suggest everyone disperse. I've been charged with escorting the lady from this peerless institution. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Damian turned away from the dark path his mother put him on... made a choice just like this creature did to walk in the sun, no matter the cost. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 If you try to take Damian's body again I'm going to kill you and make sure you never come back. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Cold, do you really think putting that against my head's--A GOOD IDEA?!'' Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 ...I want this to be a completely new start. We've been broken long enough. From here on out--good or bad--the truth rules. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It's easier to live a long life when others are willing to lay down theirs for yours, isn't it? But I know damn well you can at least feel pain and I'd be happy to share some with you! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 About time you showed up. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You don't beat death. You can postpone it -- hell -- we showed you might even cheat it. But make no mistake, Damian, you can never beat it. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 If I'm going to be honest with you, Damian, I'll need to be honest with myself. It's not just the upbringing that your mother forced on you that made you who you are... I'm also to blame. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You try to murder my son -- and expect to live!? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Don't move. Or I'll hurt you more. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 And one more thing: Keep Flamebird out of the Weeping Woman case until you know what you're dealing with. Murdered sidekicks tend to come back from the dead. As super-villains. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Don't apologize, kid: I like it. And you're right. Power untempered by compassion is a dangerous thing. I think you've got potential after all, Beetle. Tell Kord I'll be watching. And tell him--to teach you how to throw a decent punch. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I wouldn't recommend going after them unless you're really itching for a fight. And I wouldn't recommend wearing that suit until you know what it means. Have a nice evening... "Catwoman." Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I don't understand it. She acted like we knew each other. But ... that's not possible. Why in the world would I know someone like her? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 No more games. You're anything but stupid. It's beyond that. All the thefts! The fights! The idiotic risks! It's all leading to one unavoidable end! Is that what you want?! Do you want to DIE?! Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 What I am... was born from death. So we fight, David. We fight what's outside... it helps what's within. You're a hero. And you honor us all with your strength. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Zatanna, I've faced things the teenage boy you knew could never have imagined. Horrors beyond nightmare. Beyond comprehension. But the only thing that's ever threatened to tear me apart, from the inside out, is the knowledge that I could have saved somebody if I took just one more step. Whatever is brewing, the target is firmly planted on the people I care about most in the world. I've already lost one of them. Please Zatanna. I need to do this. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Hugh Marder, their president, a man I actually like, has been working feverishly to develop technology that'll aid in the development of cancer drugs. I trusted he was working on the technology he so enthusiastically put all his weight behind. But this... Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The quest for traveling faster than the speed of light. I get it. But why is it here? Was Marder testing it on himself? Trying to propel himself through space? Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Keep Batman busy so he doesn't interfere with the assassination of Bruce Wayne? Whoever's behind this, I guess the joke's on them. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Everyone outside of Arkham, everyone in Gotham, is under the influence of a mass delusion. Imagining themselves in some sort of perfect world. When, in fact, the opposite was the case. The warning signs were there. But I chose to ignore them. Right until it was almost too late. Quote2

--Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth)

Quote1 This is not Gotham. Gotham is not a happy place. Not a place of sunny skies, clean sidewalks, safe streets and friendly citizens. This Gotham is a lie. Scarecrow's lie. Quote2

Quote1 My name is Bruce Wayne. When I was ten, my parents were murdered in front of my eyes. I've spent my life training to fight the same kind of criminals that took their lives. But this is different. This isn't about me. This is bigger than I am. And it's bigger than you are. Quote2

Quote1 Gotham City. Do not be afraid. This is a prerecorded message. You know who I am. As we speak, my team and I are doing everything we can to protect you. But Gotham City is not safe.
