影片对白:

Joker: Never start with the head. The victim gets all fuzzy. He can't feel the next... See?

Batman: You wanted me. Here I am.

Joker: I wanted to see what you'd do. And you didn't disappoint. You let five people die. Then you let Dent take your place. Even to a guy like me, that's cold.

Batman: Where's Dent?

Joker: 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.

Batman: Then why do you wanna kill me?

Joker: I don't wanna kill you. What would I do without you? Go back to ripping off Mob dealers? No, no. No. no, you... You complete me.

Batman: You're garbage who kills for money.

Joker: 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...but when they don't...they'll cast you out like a leper. You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These civilized people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve.

Batman: Where's Dent?

Joker: You have all these rules, and you think they'll save you.

Police: He's in control.

Batman: I have one rule.

Joker: Oh. Then that's the rule you'll have to break to know the truth.

Batman: Which is?

Joker: The only sensible way to live is without rules. And tonight you're gonna break your one rule.

Batman: I'm considering it.

Joker: There's only minutes left, so you'll have to play my game...if you wanna save one of them.

Batman: "Them"?

Joker: You know, for a while there, I thought you really were Dent. The way you threw yourself after her. Look at you go. Does Harvey know about you and his little bunny?

Batman: Where are they?!

Joker: Killing is making a choice.

Batman: Where are they?!

Joker: Choose between one life or the other. Your friend the district attorney or his blushingbride-to-be.
