Infact one of my favorite things about these films are the reoccurring characters around Batman and the quality of them in terms of writing and acting. Alfred, Gordon and Lucius all feels like my friends and I can't wait to see them again in new classic scenes in TDKR.

My favorite scene with Alfred is probably the one after Rachel's death. Both Caine and Bale make such heartfelt, understated and brilliant performances in this scene. It's beautifully composed visually too.

I too love that scene and the way it's acted. I can't help but notice the uncanny similarities between it and the ones from BB, specifically the one of young Bruce following his parents' funeral(which is really similar to this one) and the one following their escape from the burning Manor. I love the way Alfred manages to make Bruce believe in himself again every time he 'falls'. He's practically the only person Bruce can count on no matter what. Love the way the Bruce-Alfred relationship has been handled in Nolan's movies and I also like that Alfred's one of the characters that always lightens up the atmosphere with his humor, along with Lucius.
