- Bruce Wayne being this mysterious man that no one really knows anything about. And how it's a total shock to Vale and Knox to find out Thomas and Martha Wayne were murdered. Nice job knowing the town you cover, Knox!
The Wayne murders did happen many many years ago.

- In a city with corruption issues, you have the Commissioner and DA throwing dice in Bruce Wayne's living room.
Everyone needs to have a night off from work occasionally.

- Billy Dee Williams' Ghost and Goblins line with the cigar in his mouth.
Exactly WHAT the Batman should be to Gotham citizens is an urban legend. I'm fine with the notion of Gotham citizens not knowing exactly what Batman is. There is fear in the unknown and Batman wants to be feared. And, after all, that is what Batman tries to do by lurking in the shadows. Using exploding gas pellets to make himself appear and disappear and so on.

I half expected Lando to whip out a bottle of Colt 45 right there.

- Napier blasts Eckhart, Batman just stands and watches.
"A fitting end for his kind."

- Gordon says any man that open fires on Napier will answer to him. Napier has his back turned and the cops just start firing away! You got great command of you troops there, commish!
The cops are corrupt in Gotham.

- Bruce is downing champagne and then off to fight crime!!! (don't give me the DKR cider bit, because he's clearly drinking wine with Vale later in the film)
It would be out of the Wayne persona to not be seen having a few drinks at social events.

- Bruce channeling Beetlejuice in the "you wanna get nuts!" moment. ...actually, nevermind, I liked that part.

Half-man, half-bat.

You've convinced me. Well played, sir. It's great to debate with someone who has the hard facts to back up what they say
