Riddle me this, what are the best Riddler quotes from Batman Forever? Answer: There are too many to choose from!
Hmm… not quite the answer you were hoping for? OK, then how about we take a look at the top thirteen Riddler quotes from Batman Forever?
During the course of director Joel Schumacher’s 1995 movie, Batman Forever, the Riddler served up some of the most quotable dialogue in any Batman movie. From lengthy passages to quick soundbites, the Riddler made some killer quotes and pretty much stole the show.
Speaking to Two-Face about Batman’s impressive (and dramatic) skylight entrance…
“Your entrance was good. His was better.
When delivering some home truths to Two-Face…
“Has anybody ever told you, you have a SERIOUS IMPULSE CONTROL PROBLEM?!”
Asking the question that everyone wants the answer to…
“Riddle me this, what sort of a man has bats on the brain?”
Feeling confident, yet at the same time trying not to brag…
“For if knowledge is power, then a god… am… IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!
“Was that over the top? I can never tell.”
Showing Dr. Chase Meridian he’s not afraid of Batman…
“Batman, you say?
“Coming for you?
“I’m COUNTING ON IT!”
When you’re feeling joyful, and it’s more than an orgasm…
Feeling proud and wanting praise…
A tempting offer…
“Harvey! I don’t think it’s me you really want to kill. That’d be too easy for someone as sophisticated as you – and you. But Batman, now there’s a challenge. Kill the bat! Sounds like a good idea.“
When you’re the smartest person in the room – and you know it…
“Stickley! I’m having a breakthrough. And a breakdown? Maybe! Nevertheless, I’m smarter. I’m a genius. No, several geniuses! A gaggle! A swarm! A flock of freakin’ Freuds!”
Let’s make a deal…
“Oh, there’s more. But only the first one’s free. Here’s the bargain: you will help me steal production capital, so I can put a Box on every TV in town. So I can become Gotham’s cleverest carbon-based life-form! And in return… is everybody paying attention? I will help you solve the greatest riddle of all… the mother of all riddles: “Who is Batman?””
I only speak the truth…
“But then if I talked, what would keep you from killing me anyway, oh bifurcated one? By the way, that’s never gonna heal if you don’t stop picking.”
An interesting question…
“By the way, I’ve seen your mind – FREAK! Yours is the greatest riddle of all, can Bruce Wayne and Batman ever truly coexist?”
“Tell the fat lady, she’s on in five.”
When it came to Batman movies quotes, the Riddler certainly got the lion’s share, but in truth the delivery was also key. Jim Carrey gave an infectious performance as the brainy Bat-foe and that is why long after the film has finished playing, the quotes remain.
