And the difference between never and once is the whole world. The difference between never and once is the difference between good and bad.
Bane
Your punishment must be more severe.
Max Rockatansky
My name is Max.
Max Rockatansky
If you can't fix what's broken, you'll go insane.
Max Rockatansky
I am the road warrior.
Max Rockatansky
My name is Max. My world is fire. And blood. Once, I was a cop; a road warrior searching for a righteous cause. As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy. Me... or everyone else. Here they come again. Worming their way into the black matter of my brain. I told myself... they cannot touch me. They are all dead. I am the one who runs from both the living and the dead. Hunted by scavengers. Haunted by those I could not protect. So I exist in this Wasteland. A man reduced to a single instinct: survive.
Max Rockatansky
Shall we wait?
Max Rockatansky
Them?
Imperator Furiosa
They are looking for hope.

She went under the tires.
Max Rockatansky

Max Rockatansky
I was a cop searching for a righteous course.
Max Rockatansky
I am the road warrior.
Saito
You musn't be afraid to dream a little bigger darling.
Eames
You musn't be afraid to dream a little bigger darling.
Bane
You think darkness is your ally. You've merely adapted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was a man and by then it was only blinding.
Bob Saginowski
Go out for a dinner still dressed like you're in your living room. You wear those big, you wear those big hippity hoppity clown shoes and you speak to women terribly. You treat them despicably. You hurt harmless dogs that can't even defend themselves. I'm tired of you man. I'm tired of you, you embarrass me. You know we would've kept coming back. That's what he would've done. People like this they take something from you, and you let them, they just act like they can keep coming back and you still owe them something and they never, never change. You can never change their mind.
Bob Saginowski
There are some sins that you commit that you can't come back from, you know, no matter how hard you try. You just can't. It's like the devil is waiting for your body to quit. Because he knows, he knows that he already owns your soul. And then I think maybe there's no devil. You die... and God, he says, Nah, nah you can't come in. You have to leave now. You have to leave and go away and you have to be alone. You have to be alone forever.
Bane
Do you feel in Charge?
Daggett
I paid you a small fortune.
Bane
And this gives you power over me?
Daggett
What is this?
Bane
Your money and infrastructure has been important, until now.
Daggett
What are you?
Bane
I'm Gotham's reckoning. Here to end the borrowed time you all have been living on.
Daggett
You're pure evil.
Bane
I'm necessary evil.
Bob Saginowski
He was going to hurt our dog!
Bob Saginowski
Everybody has a past.
Bob Saginowski
Are you doing something desperate? Something that we can't clean up this time?
Bob Saginowski
There are some sins that you commit, that you can't come back from, no matter how hard you try.
Bane
Let the games begin!
Max
My name is Max. My world is fire and blood.

George Smiley
Karla will be looking for you.
Ricki Tarr
Yeah. Everybody's looking for me.
George Smiley
You can't stay here. It isn't safe.
Ricki Tarr
Then the message comes through. "We read you." That was all they said. Nothing. It didn't make sense. It was like they were stalling.
George Smiley
Then what happened?
Ricki Tarr
Then all of a sudden the Russians begin to move. [He finds a dead body]. It was nice work. i couldn't have done better myself. The message was clear. I had to warn her [Irina]. [Ricki telephones her, but she's afraid to pick up the phone, and then some Russians come and take her away.] I looked for her everywhere. I couldn't find her at the airport. I checked the ports. They had taken her away on a ship.
Tommy Conlon
I like what you've done with the place.There's not much of a woman's touch around here.
Paddy Conlon
Yeah, well...no more women for me, Tommy.
Paddy Conlon
Yeah, well, no more women for me, Tommy.
Tommy Conlon
Yeah, it must be hard to find a girl who can take a punch nowadays.
Bane
Ahh, you think darkness is your ally? You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it. Molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was a man. But it was nothing to me but blinding.
Bane
Let's not stand on ceremony here. Mr. Wayne.
Forrest Bondurant
Jack, look at me. We're survivors. We control the fear. And without the fear, we are all as good as dead. Do you understand? - Do you?
Forrest Bondurant

Come on, kiddo. I've been there. I've done it. I've seen it. You can trust me. I'll understand.
Tommy Conlon
Spare me the compassionate father routine, Pop. The suit don't fit.
Paddy Conlon
I'm really trying here, Tommy.
Tommy Conlon
You're trying? Now? Where were you when it mattered? I needed this guy back when I was a kid. I don't need you now. It's too late now. Everything's already happened. You and Brendan don't seem to understand that. Let me explain something to you: the only thing I have in common with Brendan Conlon is that we have absolutely no use for you.
Brendan Conlon
God, man, I don't understand this. You won't forgive me, but you'll forgive Pop?
Tommy Conlon
Shit. He's just some old vet I train with. He means nothing to me. From what I hear he means nothing to you, either, so you got balls talking about forgiveness.
Tommy Conlon
I'm serious. We train. That's it. I don't wanna hear a word about anything but training, you understand? You wanna tell your war stories, you can take 'em down to the VFW. You can take 'em to a meeting, or church, or wherever the hell it is you go nowadays.
Tommy Conlon
So you gonna ask about her, or you just gonna sit there all sober?
Paddy Conlon
I know.
Tommy Conlon
Oh you know. What do you know? You know it wasn't enough to drive west to get away from you? When we hit the water we drove north, too.
Paddy Conlon
When I got sober I hired a man to find you.
Tommy Conlon
Is that one of the 12 steps? Or does a guy like you get 24?
Tommy Conlon
Not much of a woman's touch around here.
Paddy Conlon
No women for me anymore, Tommy.
Tommy Conlon
Yeah. Must be tough to find a girl who could take a punch nowadays.

Michael Peterson/Charles Bronson
Now hang on to your feelings. Alright? 'Cause it's going to get fucking hairy.
Michael Peterson/Charles Bronson
You don't want to be trapped inside with me sunshine. Inside, I'm somebody nobody wants to fuck with do you understand? I am Charlie Bronson, I am Britain's most violent prisoner.
Cobb
[notices that he's being followed] That price on my head, was that dead or alive?
Cobb
That price on my head, was that dead or alive?
Eames
Not sure. See if he starts shooting.
Eames
If we are gonna perform Inception then we need imagination.
Bane
We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you...the people...Gotham is yours. None shall interfere, do as you please!
GPD Special Operative
Lot of loyalty for a hired gun!
Bane
Or perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane!
GPD Special Operative
At least you can talk. Who are you?
Bane
It doesn't matter who we are. The only thing that matters is our plan. (Man takes off the bag) No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.
Bane
It doesn't matter who we are. The only thing that matters is our plan. [man takes off the bag] No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.
Michael Peterson/Charles Bronson
Come on! Come on you FUCKING cunts!
Eames
[Shows up while Arthur is in a gunfight] You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling. [Pulls out a grenade launcher]
Eames
Great. Thank you. So, now we're trapped in Fischer's mind battling his own private army, and if we get killed, we'll be lost in limbo till our brains turn to scrambled egg.
Eames
Great. Thank you. So, now we're trapped in Fischer's mind battling his own private army, and if we get killed, we'll be lost in limbo till our brains turn to scrambled egg.
Bane
Theatricality and deception are powerful agents to the uninitiated... but we are initiated, aren't we Bruce? Members of the League of Shadows! [Lifts Batman by the neck]
Bane
And you betrayed us!
Bruce Wayne/Batman
You were excommunicated... by a gang of psychopaths! [Bane viciously beats Batman and throws him to the ground]
Bane
I am the League of Shadows, and I'm here to fulfill Ra's al Ghul's destiny!
Bruce Wayne/Batman
You fight like a younger man, with nothing held back. Admirable but mistaken. [Batman uses an EMP device to cut the lights]
Bane
You fight like a younger man, with nothing held back. Admirable but mistaken. [Batman uses an EMP device to cut the lights]
Bane
Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING! [Grabs Batman from the shadows and continues to beat him]
Bane
The shadows betray you, because they belong to me! [Repeatedly punches Batman in the face, breaking his cowl]
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Why didn't you just... kill me?
Bane
You don't fear death... You welcome it. Your punishment must be more severe.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Torture?
Bane
Yes. But not of your body... Of your soul.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Where am I?
Bane
Home, where I learned the truth about despair, as will you. There's a reason why this prison is the worst hell on earth... Hope. Every man who has ventured here over the centuries has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to freedom. So easy... So simple... And like shipwrecked men turning to sea water from uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. So, as I terrorize Gotham, I will feed its people hope to poison their souls. I will let them believe they can survive so that you can watch them clamoring over each other to "stay in the sun." You can watch me torture an entire city and when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Ra's al Ghul's destiny... We will destroy Gotham and then, when it is done and Gotham is ashes, then you have my permission to die.
Tommy Conlon
You leave, you get the opposite. You leave, you get to bury people.
Bane
You fight like a younger man with nothing held back, admirable but mistaken.
Forrest Bondurant
I ain't dancin for you two
Forrest Bondurant
I ain't dancin' for you two.
Bane
So you came back to die with your city.
Bane
Let's not stand in ceremony here.... Mr. Wayne.
Bane
Let's not stand in ceremony here... Mr. Wayne.
Bane
Ohh, you think darkness is your ally? I was born in it, molded by it. I didnt see the light until I was already a man and by then it was nothing but blinding. The shadows betray you, because they belong to ME.
Bane
I'm Gotham's reckoning, here to end the borrowed time you've all been living on.
Bane
Your precious armory gratefully accepted
Bane
Your precious armory, gratefully accepted!
Bane
I am the League of Shadows....and I am here to fulfill Ra's al Ghul's destiny
Bane
I am the League of Shadows... and I am here to fulfill Ra's Al Ghul's destiny.
Bane
[Batman cuts out all the lights] You think the darkness is your ally? You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it. Molded by it. I didn't see light until I was a young man. At that point it was completely blinding. [Swings into the dark and hits Batman] The shadows betray you because they belong to me.
Bane
[Batman cuts out all the lights] You think the darkness is your ally? You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it. Molded by it. I didn't see light until I was a young man. At that point it was completely blinding. [swings into the dark and hits Batman] The shadows betray you because they belong to me.
Bane
So you came to Die with your City.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
No. I came to stop you.
Bane
Behind you stands a symbol of oppression, Blackgate Prison. Where a thousand men have languished under the name of this man, Harvey Dent, who has been held up to you as the shining example of justice. You have been supplied with a false idol to stop you from tearing down this corrupt city. Let me tell you the truth about Harvey Dent, from the words of Gotham's police commissioner, James Gordon: "The Batman didn't murder Harvey Dent. He saved my boy and took the blame for Harvey's appalling crime, so that I could to my shame build a lie around this fallen idol. I praised the mad man who tried to murder my own child. While I can no longer live with my lie, it is time to trust the people of Gotham with the truth, and it is time for me to resign." And do you accept this man's resignation? And do you accept the resignation of all these liars? Of all the corrupt? We take Gotham from the corrupt, the rich, the oppressors of generations who kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you, the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere, do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate and free the oppressed. Step forward, those who would serve, for an army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened, spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive as they learn to survive true justice. This great city... it will endure. Gotham will survive.
Bane
Oh! You think darkness is your ally. You merely adopted the dark. I was borned in it, molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already as man, and I find nothing in it but blinding.
Yusuf
Brain function in the dream will be about twenty times to normal. When you enter a dream within that dream, the effect is compounded: it's three dreams, that's ten hours times twen...
Eames
I'm sorry, uh, maths was never my strong subject. How much time is that?
Cobb
It's a week the first level down. Six months the second level down, and... the third level...
Ariadne
...is ten years! Who would wanna be stuck in a dream for ten years?
Yusuf
Depends on the dream.
Forrest Bondurant
Have you met Howard?
Bane
and for the sake of your children dr pavel indeed it does
Bane
And for the sake of your children, Doctor Pavel, indeed I hope it does.
Eames
Listen, if you're going to perform inception, you need imagination
Eames
Listen, if you're going to perform inception you need imagination.
Eames
Musn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
