There's no life without pain.


From the first day I put on the badge, I was told things could never change. Gotham was corrupt. GCPD was corrupt. Criminals and lowlives ran things. You just showed me differently. Penguin will be coming. It's time we showed Gotham who we are. Suit up!


Falcone: I'm glad I never killed you.
Jim: Thanks.
Falcone: Don't thank me. Killing you would have been a kindness. You've no idea what you've brought to your city. I imagine when you find out the truth it will destroy you. That's a comfort.

We've got a war to stop, people.


Barbara: So. Penguin's out building support amongst the gangs. Pretty soon every criminal in Gotham will be out hunting for us.
Sofia: He's out building support because we made him look weak. We kill him and all the gangs will support me. I'm still a Falcone.
Barbara: Yeah, you mentioned that. About a billion times.

Stop telling me who I am. I know who I am. And if you really want to help me you can stop trying to be my father. You can be my butler. Clean this place up.

You want to be a hero. Gotham doesn't need heroes. It needs people who will do what's necessary.


Sometimes, if you're not careful, friendship can blind you to what's staring you right in the face.


Nothing in Gotham is free.


Shun friendship.


Harvey is weak. How much longer will you prop him up?

If I want riddles, I’ll read the funny pages.
