Joker: You know, it's funny. This reminds me of a joke. See, there were two guys locked in a lunatic asylum and one night... one night, they decided they didn't like that anymore. They decided to escape. So, they made it up to the roof and there, just across this narrow gap, they see rooftops, stretching across town, stretching to freedom. Now, the first guy, he jumps right across, no problem. But his friend, oh, no way, he's afraid of falling. So, the first guy has an idea. He says, "Hey, I got this flashlight with me. I'll shine it across the gap between the buildings and you can walk across the beam and join me." But the second guy says, "What do you think I am, crazy? You'll just turn it off when I'm halfway across!"
Lex Luthor: Would you like a printout? Maybe some hot cocoa before you leave?
Batman: I have what I need.
Lex Luthor: What you need, is to show me some respect. I saved all your asses against Cyborg Superman, and I'll remind you I'm a Justice League member now.
Batman: Probationary member. Don't call us, we'll call you. (00:25:44)
Catwoman: You're absolutely insane. He killed your friend. Tried to kill Nightwing. Hell, he almost killed me and you're sorry he's dead?
Batman: I had to try. If someone can be saved, I have to try.
Catwoman: You do, don't you? It's a compulsion. You and your goddamn code. And you'll die because of it, you know this, right? Will that make it all better?
Batman: Without a code, I'm no better than them.
