Akeelah and the Bee (2006) More at IMDbPro ad feedback Akeelah: [Javier has just kissed her] Why'd you do that? Javier: I had an impulse. Are you gonna sue me for sexual harassment? [pause, then they both laugh] Share this quote Akeelah: [quoting Marianne Williamson] Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. Dr. Larabee: Does that mean anything to you? Akeelah: I don't know. Dr. Larabee: It's written in plain English. What does it mean? Akeelah: That I'm not supposed to be afraid? Dr. Larabee: Afraid of what? Akeelah: Afraid of... me? Share this quote Akeelah: Okay. But when I'm at the bee, and they tell me to spell some little fish from Australia or some weird bacteria on the moon, we're going to wish we'd done a little bit more "rotemorizing" and not so much essay reading. If you don't mind me saying. Dr. Larabee: Bacteria don't exist on the moon. Share this quote Dr. Larabee: Where do you think big words come from? Akeelah: People with big brains? Share this quote Akeelah: I'm naturally inquisitive. Dr. Larabee: Yes, which is also sometimes confused with being naturally obnoxious.

Where you don't have to worry about tomorrow or yesterday, where you feel safe and know you're doing the best you can? There's a word for that, it's called love. L-O-V-E. Share this quote Mr. Welch: So whoever wins the school bee today, gets to represent Crenshaw at the district bee next month. Akeelah: Why would anybody want to represent a school where they can't even put doors on the toilet stalls? [coughing] Mr. Welch: Akeelah, if we can't show students can perform were not going to have money for books let alone bathroom doors. [pause] Mr. Welch: Now I want you to do the bee today, okay? Akeelah: So everyone can call me a freak and a brainiac? No I ain't down for no spelling bee. Mr. Welch: Well, maybe you'd be down for spending the rest of the semester in detention for all your absences? Share this quote Derrick-T: Man, that's a white word if I ever heard one. It's a trick. Stop playing! Share this quote

The Dark Knight (2008) More at IMDbPro ad feedback Bruce Wayne: Targeting me won't get their money back. I knew the mob wouldn't go down without a fight, but this is different. They crossed the line. Alfred Pennyworth: You crossed the line first, sir. You squeezed them, you hammered them to the point of desperation. And in their desperation they turned to a man they didn't fully understand. Bruce Wayne: Criminals aren't complicated, Alfred. Just have to figure out what he's after. Alfred Pennyworth: With respect, sir, perhaps this is a man that *you* don't fully understand.

Harvey Dent: Alfred, right? Alfred Pennyworth: That's right, sir. Harvey Dent: Yeah, Rachel talks about you all the time. You've known her, her whole life! Alfred Pennyworth: Oh, not yet, sir. Harvey Dent: Heh heh heh. Any psychotic ex-boyfriends I should be aware of? Alfred Pennyworth: [smiles] Oh, you have no idea. Share this quote The Joker: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

Alfred Pennyworth: A long time ago, I was in Burma, my friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never found anyone who traded with him. One day I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away. Bruce Wayne: Then why steal them? Alfred Pennyworth: Because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn. Share this quote The Joker: You know, I'll settle for his loved ones. Gentleman at Party: We're not intimidated by thugs! The Joker: [as he smacks his lips] You know, you remind me of my father.

[turns to face Rachel, tosses the Gentleman to his thugs and approaches Rachel, adjusting his hair with the knife] The Joker: Well, hello, beautiful. You must be Harvey's squeeze, hm? And you *are* beautiful. [the Joker hovers around the incredibly nervous Rachel] The Joker: Well, you look nervous. Is it the scars? You want to know how I got 'em? [He grabs Rachel's head and positions the knife by her mouth] The Joker: Come here. Hey! Look at me. So I had a wife, beautiful, like you, who tells me I worry too much. Who tells me I ought to smile more. Who gambles and gets in deep with the sharks... Look at me! One day, they carve her face. And we have no money for surgeries. She can't take it. I just want to see her smile again, hm? I just want her to know that I don't care about the scars. So... I stick a razor in my mouth and do this... [the Joker mimics slicing his mouth open with his tongue] The Joker: ...to myself. And you know what? She can't stand the sight of me! She leaves. Now I see the funny side. Now I'm always smiling! [Rachel knees the Joker in the groin; he merely laughs it off] The Joker: A little fight in you. I like that. Batman: [off-screen] Then you're going to love me. [attacks him] Share this quote The Joker: It's a funny world we live in. Speaking of which, do you know how I got these scars? Batman: No! But I know how you got these!
Share this quote [bumps along while driving hijacked truck] The Joker: I like this job - I like it! Share this quote [first lines] Grumpy: [before a bank heist] Three of a kind, let's do this. Chuckles: That's it, three guys? Grumpy: Two guys on the roof. Every guy gets a share. Five shares is plenty. Chuckles: Six shares, don't forget the guy who planned the job. Grumpy: He thinks he can sit it out and still take a slice? I know why they call him "The Joker." Share this quote The Joker: And... here... we... go! Share this quote The Joker: Oh, you. You just couldn't let me go, could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You are truly incorruptible, aren't you? Huh? You won't kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won't kill you because you're just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever. Batman: You'll be in a padded cell forever. The Joker: Maybe we can share one. You know, they'll be doubling up, the rate this city's inhabitants are losing their minds. Batman: This city just showed you that it's full of people ready to believe in good. The Joker: Until their spirit breaks completely. Until they get a good look at the real Harvey Dent and all the heroic things he's done. You didn't think I'd risk losing the battle for Gotham's soul in a fistfight with you? No. You need an ace in the hole. Mine's Harvey. Batman: What did you do? The Joker: I took Gotham's white knight and I brought him down to our level. It wasn't hard. You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push! [the Joker laughs hysterically as Batman races off and the cops come to take the Joker into custody] Share this quote Lt. James Gordon: [to Harvey Dent] Everyone knows you're Gotham's White Knight.
Share this quote The Joker: [to Det. Stephens] Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the... little emotions. In... you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards? Share this quote [last lines] James Gordon Jr.: Why's he running, Dad? Lt. James Gordon: Because we have to chase him. James Gordon Jr.: He didn't do anything wrong. Lt. James Gordon: Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight. Share this quote [***SPOILER*** the Joker pins Batman, in view of the two rigged ferries] The Joker: We really should stop fighting, we'll miss the fireworks! Batman: There aren't going to be any fireworks! The Joker: And here... we... go! [Silence. Nothing happens. Confused, Joker turns to look at the clock, which shows that it's past midnight and neither ferry has blown the other up] Batman: What were you hoping to prove? That, deep down, everyone's as ugly as you? You're *alone*! The Joker: [sighs] Can't rely on anyone these days... Share this quote The Chechen: What are you going to do with all your money? The Joker: See, I'm a man of simple tastes. I like dynamite, and gunpowder... [the Chechen watches, appalled, as Joker's thugs pour gasoline on his mountain of cash] The Joker: And gasoline! Do you know what all of these things have in common? They're cheap! Share this quote [repeated line] The Joker: Wanna know how I got these scars?
Share this quote Batman: Beautiful, isn't it? Lucius Fox: Beautiful. Unethical. DANGEROUS. You've turned every cellphone in Gotham into a microphone. Batman: And a high-frequency generator-receiver. Lucius Fox: You took my sonar concept and applied it to every phone in the city. With half the city feeding you sonar, you can image all of Gotham. This is wrong. Batman: I've gotta find this man, Lucius. Lucius Fox: At what cost? Batman: The database is null-key encrypted. It can only be accessed by one person. Lucius Fox: This is too much power for one person. Batman: That's why I gave it to you. Only you can use it. Lucius Fox: Spying on 30 million people isn't part of my job description. Share this quote The Joker: I want... my phone call. I want it. I want it! I want my phone call! Detective Stephens: That's nice. The Joker: How many of your friends have I killed? Detective Stephens: I'm a twenty-year man. I can tell the difference between punks who need a little lesson in manners, and the freaks like you who just enjoy it. [pause] Detective Stephens: And you've killed six of my friends. [Joker, pretending amazement, mouths "six?"] Share this quote The Joker: [holds camera facing himself] See, this is how crazy Batman's made Gotham! If you want order in Gotham, Batman must take off his mask and turn himself in. Oh, and every day he doesn't, people will die, starting tonight. I'm a man of my word. [laughs] Share this quote The Joker: Harvey, Harvey, Harvey Dent. [climbs up to the cab of a semi truck, the driver of which is dead or unconscious] The Joker: Oh, excuse me, I want to drive! [shoves him out and takes the wheel] Share this quote
The Chechen: What do you propose? The Joker: It's simple. We, uh, kill the Batman. [mobsters laugh] Salvatore Maroni: If it's so simple, why haven't you done it already? The Joker: If you're good at something, never do it for free. Share this quote Alfred Pennyworth: I suppose they'll lock me up as well. As your accomplice... Bruce Wayne: Accomplice? I'm going to tell them the whole thing was your idea. Share this quote Bruce Wayne: [after The Joker threatens to blow up a hospital via TV] Do you think I should go to the hospital? Lt. James Gordon: You don't watch a whole lot of news, do you, Mr. Wayne? Share this quote The Joker: [over the PA] Tonight you're all gonna be part of a social experiment. Through the magic of diesel fuel and ammonium nitrate, I'm ready right now to blow you all sky high. Anyone attempts to get off their boat, you all die. Each of you has a remote... to blow up the other boat. At midnight, I blow you all up. If, however, one of you presses the button, I'll let that boat live. So, who's it going to be: Harvey Dent's most wanted scumbag collection, or the sweet and innocent civilians? You choose... oh, and you might want to decide quickly, because the people on the other boat might not be so noble. Share this quote James Gordon Jr.: Did Batman save you, Daddy? Lt. James Gordon: Actually, this time I saved him. Share this quote Lt. James Gordon: They'll hunt you. Batman: You'll hunt me. You'll condemn me. Set the dogs on me. Because that's what needs to happen.
