Vengeance runs in the blood.. taglines


  • The psychos just keep getting younger.
  • I know what you're thinking. You're thinking you could be Robin. Well you can't.

Killer Croc[edit]

  • You know, Bats... the problem with steroids is I get the munchies.


[Alfred is showing Damian his bedroom]
Alfred Pennyworth: I hope this isn't too cramped for you. That door heads to your bath. The other, to a game room. And you also have this for your amusement. [Alfred turns on the T.V. and Looney Tunes plays] Naturally, you have the run of the mansion.
Damian Wayne: Of course. I know that. Prepare some tea, Pennyworth. Brown sugar instead of white, fresh-cut lemon. A china cup.
Alfred Pennyworth: Perhaps master would like some warm mixed nuts and a moist hand towel.
Damian Wayne: Watch yourself, Pennyworth. I'm not so young that I don't understand sarcasm.
Alfred Pennyworth: While I am much too old to care.

Talia al Ghul: Want a drink?
Batman: Last time you offered me one, it didn't go so well.
Talia al Ghul: Oh, you’re right. If I remember correctly, I slipped a little something into your beverage.
Batman: Same way I remember it.
Talia al Ghul: It made you romantic.
Batman: It made me do what you wanted.

Talia al Ghul: [Her back is to Batman] My father ... he died.
Batman: Ra's?
Talia al Ghul: [Turns back to him, annoyed] How many fathers do I have?!
Batman: Sorry. He just seemed ...
Talia al Ghul: Like you? Indestructible?

Damian Wayne: I'll drive.
Batman: No.
Damian Wayne: I know how.
Batman: No.

Damian Wayne: So this is the fabled Batcave. Grandfather told me about it. Smaller than I imagined. Very efficient, though.
Alfred Pennyworth: He is the spitting image of you at that age. It's a bit chilling.

Talia al Ghul: I thank you for my life and the life of my son.
Batman: Our son.
Talia al Ghul: I need to rebuild the League. Make it stronger, better. Come with me. You and I, together with Damian, would be invincible.
Batman: The best way to fix the League is to disband it.
Talia al Ghul: If only it were that easy. Damian should stay with me. He will want to be with his mother.
Batman: He's Robin now. He stays with the Batman.

Batman: Alfred?
Alfred Pennyworth: Yes, sir.
Batman: We're going to have company.
Alfred Pennyworth: A sleepover? Oh, goody.

[Alfred is stitching up Dick after his battle with Damian.]
Dick Grayson: Really ticks me off; after all the lectures he gave me about using protection.
Alfred Pennyworth: Indeed.
[Dick winces.]
Alfred Pennyworth: Are you alright, Master Dick?
Dick Grayson: I took the cut, I can take the stitch.
Damian Wayne: [watching from the balcony, smugly] Maybe you need more anesthetic.
Dick Grayson: [royally pissed] And maybe YOU need to go fu--
Alfred Pennyworth: Master Dick!
Damian Wayne: Maybe you should remember who the blood son is.
Dick Grayson: "Bloodthirsty" is more like it.

Deathstroke: Go ahead. Finish me. You were trained to kill your enemies, weren't you? It's what you want. It's what your grandfather would do. It's what I would do. Well, do it!
Robin: No. I'm my father's son, too. I'm Robin!

Batman: Talk.
Nightwing: [Calling Batman] Missing something?
Batman: Not in the mood for games.
Nightwing: I have a kid here. [Turns to Damian] Who says he's your son?
[Damian, who's been tied up and gagged by Nightwing, growls at him.]
Batman: [In a resigned tone] I'll be right there.

Batman: You look like you've been working out, Croc. The tail's new.
Killer Croc: Yeah, got an upgrade.

[Damian is training in the garden, slashing up the many topiaries]
Alfred Pennyworth: I think we might be able to skip the gardener.
Bruce Wayne: Well, he was trained by the League of Assassins.
Alfred Pennyworth: I, myself, am rooting for the shrubbery.
[Alfred leaves, while Bruce stays back and continues to watch Damian. He smiles.]
Bruce Wayne: He has talent.

Damian Wayne: I wanna help. Like he used to. [points to Dick]
Batman: Bad enough you've given yourself away and let them know we're onto them, but you're letting vengeance guide you.
Damian Wayne: You've never felt vengeful?
Batman: Every day. You have to keep your center, Damian. You can't fight crime by becoming a criminal. From now on, stay close. That's an order.
Damian Wayne: I can do that.
Dick Grayson: Wait a minute. I'm not gonna like this, am I?
Batman: ... Nope.

Damian Wayne: Is this what you wore in training?
Dick Grayson: It's what I wore when I went on patrol.
Damian Wayne: The only thing that's missing is lace trim and a sun hat.
Dick Grayson: You don't fool me. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that you could be Robin. Well, you can't.
Damian Wayne: I don't need some insipid costume and a bird name. I'm way beyond your kind of simplistic training. As you saw tonight.
Dick Grayson: Don't forget, you lost that fight.

Deathstroke: Now your luck ends.
Robin: You call it luck, I call it skill. [spits in Deathstroke's eye]
