I gotta say, no matter how much I love TDKR, that is the most cringeworthy line out of the entire trilogy as it makes no sense except to just push the third act by telling us that this war will be infront of City Hall and making Miranda seem more important that what she should be before the Talia reveal and Bruce knows EXACTLY where she is even. The scene should've cut to Bane telling his men to keep "her" close and then Batman handing Gordon the EMP box without even asking where Miranda is.
I think that line is crucial to Bruce, because at this point, he's finally realized that he needs something to root for beyond his duties as Batman, and Miranda has become that for him at this point. It makes her betrayal much more powerful to know that a life beyond batman has finally equalled his passion for inspiring hope and doling out justice. Unfortunately he was looking to the wrong lady, haha.
