Post 482 : Movie Quotes Dark Knight (Planning and its failings)

THE JOKER I don't want there to be any hard feelings between us, Harvey.
(The Joker loosens Dent's restraints.)
THE JOKER When you and Rachel were being abducted I was sitting in Gordon's cage. I didn't rig those charges-

DENT
Your men. Your plan.
THE JOKER
Do I really look like a guy with a plan, Harvey? I don't have a plan...The mob has plans, the cops have plans. You know what I am,Harvey?

I'm a dog chasing cars... I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it. I just do things. I'm just the wrench in the gears. I hate plans.Yours, theirs, everyone's. Maroni has plans. Gordon has plans. Schemers trying to control their worlds. I'm not a schemer, I show
the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are. So when I say that you and your girlfriend was nothing personal, you know I'm telling the truth...

It's the schemers who put you where you are. You were a schemer. You had plans. Look where it got you. I just did what I do best- I took your plan, and I turned it on itself. Look what I've done to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. Nobody panics when the expected people get killed. Nobody panics when things go according to
plan, even if the plan is horrifying. If I tell the press that tomorrow a gangbanger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics. Because it's all part of the plan. But when I say that one little old mayor will die, everybody loses their minds!Introduce a little anarchy, you upset the established order and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. And you know the thing about chaos, Harvey? (Dent looks into the Joker's eyes. Finding meaning.)

THE JOKER It's fair.
(Dent looks down at the coin in his hands. Turns it over, feels it's comforting weight. Shows the Joker the good side.)

DENT
You live.
(He turns the coin over. The flip side is deeply SCARRED.)
DENT  You die.
(The Joker looks at the coin. Looks at Dent, admiringly.)
THE JOKER
Now you're talking.
