Bruce Wayne: If this man is everything that you say he is, then this city needs me.
Alfred: This city needs Bruce Wayne. Your resources, your knowledge. It doesn't need your body, or your life. That time has passed.
Bruce Wayne: You're afraid that if I go back out there, I'll fail.
Alfred: No. I'm afraid that you want to.
Lucius Fox: This conversation used to end with an unusual request.
Bruce Wayne: I'm retired.
Lucius Fox: Well, let me show you some stuff anyway. Just for old time's sake.
CIA Agent: At least you can talk! Who are you?
Bane: It doesn't matter who we are... What matters is our plan. No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.
CIA Agent: [Pulls hood off to reveal Bane in his mask.] If I pull that off, will you die?
Bane: It would be extremely painful...
CIA Agent: You're a big guy.
Bane: ...for you.
Bane: Gotham, take control... Take control of your city. Behold, the instrument of your liberation! Identify yourself to the world!
Jim Gordon: I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.
