Beautiful Dialogues of the Movie Batman: The Killing Joke

batman-the-killing-joke

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!”

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!

I don’t want to hurt you. I don’t want either of us to end up killing the other. But we’re running out of alternatives. Perhaps it all hinges on tonight. I don’t know what it was that bent your life out of shape, but maybe I’ve been there, too. Maybe we could work together. I could rehabilitate you. You don’t need to be alone. We don’t have to kill each other. Let me help you.

All these years, and I don’t know who he is any more than he knows who I am.

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?

You’re not like I am Barbara, it’s still a game for you, still a thrill. I’m gonna ask you politely, one last time. Where is he?

Finish the Commissioner, take him where he needs to be. And please, do be careful. After all, he is topping the bill.
