The Joker: You know, kids, a lot has changed since your old Uncle Joker's been away. New Gotham, new rules, even a new Batman. But now I'm tanned, I'm rested and I'm ready to give this old town a wedgie again.
The Joker: Yes, memory is so treacherous. One moment you're lost in a carnival of delight, childhood aromas, the flashing neon of puberty, all that sentimental candyfloss. The next, it takes you somewhere you don't want to be. Somewhere dark and cold, filled with damp, ambiguous-shaped things you'd rather forget. Memories can be vile, repulsive little brutes. Like children, no?
The Joker: Well, that's what a dose of reality will do to you. It's why I never touch the stuff. I find it waters down the hallucinations.
The Joker: I'm not exactly sure what happened. Sometimes I remember it one way, sometimes another. If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice.
Ben Kenobi: Obi-Wan Kenobi? Obi-Wan. Now there's a name I've not heard in a long, long time. A long time.
Luke Skywalker: You do know him then?
Ben Kenobi: Of course I know him...he's me. I haven't gone by the name Obi-Wan since, oh, before you were born.
Darth Vader: You cannot hide forever, Luke.
Luke Skywalker: I will not fight you.
Darth Vader: Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way to save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for...sister. So, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side, then perhaps she will.
Luke Skywalker: [ignites lightsaber.] NEVER!
Luke Skywalker: You told me Vader betrayed and murdered my father.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Your father was seduced by the dark side of the force: he ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader; when that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So, what I told you was true...from a certain point of view.
