    • Bane: (To Bruce) When Gotham is in ashes, then you have my permission to die.

    • Alfred: You hung up your cape and your cowl but you didn't move on. You never went to find a life. To find someone.
      Bruce: Alfred... I did find someone.
      Alfred: I know and you lost them. But that's all part of living, sir. But you're not living, you're just waiting, hoping for things to go bad again. Remember when you left Gotham? Before all this, before Batman. You were gone seven years. Seven years I waited, hoping that you wouldn't come back. Every year, I took a holiday. I went to Florence. There's this cafe on the banks of the Arno. Every fine evening I'd sit there and order a Fernet Branca. I had this fantasy... that I would look across the tables... and I'd see you there, with a wife. Maybe uh, a couple of kids. You wouldn't say anything to me, nor me to you. But we'd both know that you'd made it. That you were happy.
