A silent guardian, a watchful protector

Kid: Dad! Dad, is you ok?
[Batman prevents Gordon from calling help]
Gordon: Thank you!
Batman: You don’t have to thank me.
G: Yes, I do.
[looking at Harvey Dent]
G: The Joker won… Harvey’s prosecution, everything he fought for… undone. Whatever chance you gave us of fixing our city… dies with Harvey’s reputation. We bet it all on him. The Joker took the best of us and tore him down. People will lose all hope.
B: They won’t. They must never know what he did.
G: Five dead? Two of them cops? You can’t…
B: The Joker cannot win. Gotham needs its true hero.
G: No.
B: You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I can do those things, because I’m not a hero. I like that. I killed those people. That’s what I can be.
G: No, no, no! You can’t, you’re not!
B: I am whatever Gotham needs me to be.
[at Harvey’s funeral]
G: A hero. Not a hero we deserved, but a hero we needed. Nothing less than a knight. Shining…
[back in the night dialogue]
G: They’ll hunt you.
B: You’ll hunt me, you’ll condemn me. Set the dogs on me. Because it’s what needs to happen. Because, sometimes, truth isn’t good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve their faith… rewarded.
[Batman runs away in the night]
K: Batman! Batman! Why is he running, dad?
G: Because we have to chase him.
Policeman: Ok, we’re going in! Go, go! Move!
K: He didn’t do anything wrong.
G: Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not a hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. The Dark Knight.
