Post 478 : Movie Quotes Dark Knight (Some people like to watch the world burn)

WAYNE
Targeting me won't get their money back. I knew the mob wouldn't go down without a fight, but this is different. They've crossed a line.

ALFRED You crossed it first, sir. You've hammered them, squeezed them to the point of desperation. And now, in their desperation they've turned to a man they don't fully understand.


WAYNE Criminals aren't complicated, Alfred. We just have to figure out what he's
after.

ALFRED
Respectfully, Master Wayne, perhaps this is a man you don't fullyunderstand, either.

ALFRED I was in Burma. A long time ago. My friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders, bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a
bandit. We were asked to take care of the problem, so we started looking for the stones. But after six months, we couldn't find anyone who had traded with him.

WAYNE
What were you missing?

ALFRED
One day I found a child playing with a ruby as big as a tangerine. (shrugs) The bandit had been throwing the stones away.

WAYNE
So why was he stealing them?

ALFRED
Because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for
anything logical, like money... they can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or
negotiated with.(grave) Some men just want to watch the world
burn.
