Which quote best sums up the trilogy for you of Nolans Batman universe and will be the one you remember the most?

(Please leave your quote below if its not on the list, I tried to list as many of the significant ones I could think of/remember/find on the net!!)

Be interested to see which one it is :-)

Update: The first quote to 100 will be the winner (or closest to it!) and we will have our definitive quote to sum up the Nolan trilogy!! ;-)

"But if you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, and if they can't stop you, then you become something else entirely.... A legend, Mr. Wayne. "

This quote really epitomizes the whole trilogy to me, so I voted for this one.

I was hoping "What? They don't like falafel?" would appear...
 
"I think you and I are destined to do this forever"

The perfect summation of the Batman/Joker relationship.
 
My favorite quote is "Peace has cost you your strength. Victory has defeated you."
 
I've always liked "Why do we fall?" I was sad it wasn't used in TDKR.
 
I voted for Ducard's legend quote. I'm also wondering why Gordon's quote at the end of TDK wasn't included in the poll.
 
When I saw the thread title, I thought it'd be an easy enough decision, then I saw the options. :o

So many brilliant and worthy lines, lines that tell you a story in a sentence. Couldn't possibly choose one over another.
 
"A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended."

Really love this quote. The first time I heard it, I almost teared up.
 
I think "You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain" is something that applies throughout the franchise and thus, is perhaps the "best" quote of the trilogy.

It's line that applies to Dent, Bruce, Gordon and even Bane.

I think it makes it even better that its Batman's last line in the entire trilogy.

Damn now I wish I had voted for that instead:woot:
 
"I don't want to kill you! What would I do without you?"

"You have nothing...nothing to threaten me with. Nothing to do with all of your strength."

"I'm Gotham's reckoning."
 
"It's not who i am underneath, but what i do that defines me" The clear reason for Wayns actions.
 
For me, the quote that ties all 3 films together is:

"People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as Bruce Wayne. . . as a man I'm flesh and blood - I can be ignored, I can be destroyed - but as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible. . . I can be everlasting."http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000323/
 
"Do you want to know how I got my scars?"

Done. That really is the most quoted line from the series.
 
Of the quotes listed, I'd say...

"But if you make yourself more than just a man.... A legend, Mr. Wayne."
 
EDIT: That or "He's the hero we deserve, but not the one we need right now. So, we'll hunt him because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a watchful protector, a silent guardian...a dark knight."

Yeah like this one a lot too, should be on the list.
 
Another one of my absolute favorites is Bruce on the plane back to Gotham City in Begins.

"People need dramatic examples... But as a symbol."
 
You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain

If someone stands in the way of true justice, you simply walk up behind them, and stab them in the heart.
