Top Ten Alfred Pennyworth Quotes

Just recently, I made a list of Top Ten Batman Quotes and before that I made lists of Top Ten Bane Quotes and Top Ten Joker Quotes, I’ll probably make similar lists of characters from The Dark Knight Legend, but for now I decided to make a list of my favorite Alfred Pennyworth quotes. It was one of my easier lists to make. As with every character in the greatest story in existence, Pennyworth’s lines are meaningful, eloquent and completely riveting. As I began to appreciate his dialogue, I realized it wasn’t a difficult task to realize which quotes were more important to both me and the story. Alfred was the man responsible for the raising, care and love of Bruce Wayne, the man who would become Batman. The gentle and wise butler whose always been there as a friend and father-figure to the greatest hero in existence is quite the magnificent character.

10. “You have inspired good, but you spat in the faces of Gotham’s worse criminals. Didn’t you think there might be some casualties? Things were always going to get worse before they got better.”

9. “Rachel believed in what you stood for, what we stand for. Gotham needs you.”

8. “I’m so sorry. I failed you. You trusted me and I failed you.”

7. He’s not being a hero. He’s being something more.”

6. I’ve sewn you up, I’ve set your bones, but I won’t bury you. I’ve buried enough members of the Wayne family.”

5. “Well, 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.”

4. “It means your hatred. And it also means losing someone that I have cared for since I first heard his cries echo through this house. But it might also mean saving your life and that is more important.”

3. “Endure, Mr. Wayne. Take it. They’ll hate you for it, but that’s the point of the Batman. He can be the outcast, he can make the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.”

2. “We burned the forest down.”

1. “I never wanted you to come back to Gotham. I always knew there was nothing for you here, except pain and tragedy. And I wanted something more for you than that. I still do.”

Top Ten Joker Quotes

In honor of the loss of a great actor and a the coming of an amazing movie. I give you my top ten favorite lines from Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight. It was hard to pick a top ten because basically every single one of is lines is made memorable by this incredible performance, but I did my best. Here they are:

P.S.: This post contains spoilers, if you have not seen the movie (do), but don’t read this until you have.

!!!SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!

First, the quotes that almost made it on the list (in no particular order):

  • “It’s not about the money, it’s about sending a message. Everything burns!”
  • “I’m like a dog chasing cars, I wouldn’t know what to do if I caught one, you know, I’d just do…things.”
  • “Let’s put a smile on that face!”
  • “Those mob fools want you gone. So they can get back to the way things were. But I know the truth, there’s no going back. You’ve changed things…forever.”
  • “And I thought my jokes were bad.”
Top Ten:

10. “The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules. And tonight, you’re gonna break your one rule.”

9. “Do you want to know why I use a knife? You see, guns are too quick. You can’t savor all of the little…emotions. In their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way…I knew your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards?”

8. “I believe… whatever doesn’t kill you simply makes you…stranger.”

7. (When told that he has a 50% chance of living) “Ummm, Now we’re talkin.”

6. “Introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos, I’m an agent of chaos , and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair.”

5. “I don’t wanna kill you, what would I do without you? Go back to rippin’ off mob dealers… no, no, no… no you, you complete me.”

4. “You can’t rely on anyone these days, you gotta do everything yourself, don’t we? That’s ok, I came prepared, it’s a funny world we live in. Speaking of which, you know how I got these scars?”

3. “I took gotham’s white knight and I brought ‘im down to our level. Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity, all it takes is a little push. ”

2. “Don’t talk like one of them, you’re not! Even if you’d like to be. To them, you’re just a freak–like me. They need you right now. When they don’t…they’ll cast you out. Like a leper. See, their morals, their code: it’s a bad joke. They’re dropped at the first sign of trouble. They’re only as good as the world allows them to be. You’ll see, when the chips are down these civilized people will eat each other. Ya see I’m not a monster, I was just ahead of the curve.”

1. “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 incorruptable aren’t you. You won’t kill me because of some misplaced sense of self-rightousness. And I won’t kill you because…you’re just too much fun. I get the feeling that you and I are destined to do this forever.”

R.I.P. Heath, and thank-you for giving the world a performance of a life time.
