Fair enough, though I always just took that scene as a little comedic bit where Bruce just instinctively expects someone to answer the door for him because he's so used to it.

The thing that makes me think Bruce was pretty much done with Alfred is this exchange here:

"You expect to destroy my world and then think that we're gonna shake hands?"

"No. I know what this means."

"What does it mean?"

"It means your hatred. And it also means losing someone that I have cared for since I first heard his cries echo through this house."

The way I always interpreted the scene was Alfred makes his decision to leave because he's anticipating how Bruce will react before he even tells him about the Rachel thing. I guess it's somewhat of a chicken/egg scenario.
