I love how in this movie, for the first time, we had an Alfred who made an effort to get Bruce to stop being Batman. Instead of just being willing to constantly bandage him up only to have him go back out and incur more damage to his body. Especially at this point where his body was in the state that it was in. Alfred was put in charge of taking care of Bruce's life and he knew this was not possible so long as Bruce continued to be Batman, again, especially since his body had so deteriorated at that point.
Such a powerful scene and wonderfully acted by both Bale and Caine.
