The dialogue featured across the Batman film series is extremely quotable – especially when it comes to a film like Batman Returns, which is filled with great lines! In a previous post I have looked at the killer quotes from Catwoman, but in this post I take a look at the best lines from all the characters in Batman Returns.
Flirting, Penguin style…
Penguin: “Just the pussy I’ve been lookin’ for!”
Max the moron…
Max Shreck: “Selina! Selina Kyle. You’re fired! And Bruce Wayne? Why are you dressed up like Batman?”
Catwoman: “Because he *is* Batman, you moron!”
Finding common ground…
Catwoman: “We need to talk. You see, you and I have something in common.”
The Penguin: “Sounds familiar. Appetite for destruction? Contempt for the czars of fashion? Wait, don’t tell me…
...naked sexual charisma.”
The Penguin: “I believe the word you’re looking for is… “Aarrgghh!”
Play that funky music…
The Penguin: “You gotta admit I played this stinkin’ city like a harp from hell.”
Setting out the mayoral manifesto…
The Penguin: “I could really get into this mayor stuff. It’s not about power, it’s about reaching out to people – touching people – groping people!”
Getting straight to the point…
Selina Kyle: “Okay, go ahead. Intimidate me, bully me if it makes you feel big. I mean it’s not like you can just kill me.”
Max Shreck: “Actually, it’s a lot like that.”
Take your pick…
Max Shreck: “I don’t know what you want, but I know I can get it for you, with a minimum of fuss! Money, jewels, a *very* big ball of string.”
The Penguin doesn’t take well to rejection…
The Penguin: “You lousy minx! I oughta have you spayed!”
A case of mistaken identity…
Bruce Wayne: “You know what, I mistook me for somebody else.”
Somethings are just purr-fect…
And finally, always remember to buckle up…
The Penguin: “Don’t adjust your sets. Welcome to the Oswald Cobblepot school of driving. Gentlemen, start your screaming!”
