Batman: The Dark Knight

Director(s): Clint Walker

Three of a kind. Let's do this.

That's it? Three guys?

Two guys on the roof.

Every guy gets a share.

Five shares is plenty.

Six shares. Don't forget the

guy who planned the job.

He thinks he can sit it out

and still take a slice?

I know why they call him the Joker.

So why do they call him the Joker?

I heard he wears makeup.


Yeah! to scare people.

You know, war paint?

Alright everybody, hands up

heads down!

I said, hands up,

heads down!

Let's go pal! I'm

making a withdrawal here.

Put your hands up!

Here comes the silent alarm.

There it goes.

Heads down!

Get down. I said stay

down there!

That's funny it didn't dial out to 911.

I was trying to reach a private number.

Is it a problem?

No, I'm done here ...

Obviously we don't want you doing anything with your

hands other than holding on for dear life.

On the ground! Stay on the ground!

Nobody make a move! Nobody!

Stay down!

Come here!

Do you have any idea who

you're stealing from?

You and your friends are dead!

He's out, right?

Where did you learn to count?

They wired this thing up with like 5000 Voltz.

What kind of bank does that?

A mob bank.

I guess the Joker is

as crazy as they say.

Where is the alarm guy?

The boss told me when the guy

was done, I should take him out.

One less share, right?

Funny ... He told me something similar.

He what? No, no!

That's a lot of money. If this Joker guy was so

smart he'd had us bring a bigger car.

I'm betting the Joker told you to kill

me as soon as we loaded the cash.

No, no, no, no ...

I kill the bus driver.

Bus driver?

What bus driver?

School's out. Time to go.

Cat's not getting up, is he?

That's a lot of money.

What happened to the rest of the guys?

You think you're smart, huh?

Well, the guy that hired you

will just do the same with you.

Ah, criminals in this town used

to believe in things.

Honor, respect! Look at you!

What do you believe in?

Huh, what do you believe in?

I believe whatever doesn't kill

you simply makes you...


Mr. Mayor, you were elected in

the campaign to clean up the city.

When are you going to start?

Well, Mike, I believe I already have.

Like the so-called Batman? We're

hearing that he's doing some good.

That criminals are running scared.

But I say ...

Naw, man... I don't like it tonight.

What!, are you superstitious?

You got more chance of winning

the powerball than running into him.

That simply is not true.

I'm told that

Our men in the major crimes unit

are close to ...

Mayor says you're closing

in on the Batman.

The investigation is ongoing.

Ever intending to see your wife

again, lieutenant?

I thought you had to go

look after your mother, detective?

Checked her back into the hospital.


So he hasn't shown up?

I hope he doesn't.

I like reminding everybody

that he's out there.

Why wouldn't he come?

Hopefully because he is busy.

That's why we bring dogs.

Hey, my filhotinhos.

Look what your drugs

did to my customers.

Buyer beware. I told you

my compound would take you places.

I never said they'd be places

you wanted to go.

My business repeat customers.

If you don't like what I have to offer

you can buy from someone else.

Assuming Batman left

anyone to buy from...

My dogs are hungry!

Pity there is only one of you.

That's not him.

That's more like it.



Don't let me find you out here again.

We are trying to help you.

I don't need help!

Not my diagnosis.

What gives you the right?

What's the difference between you and me?

I am not wearing hockey pads.

He can't resist showing us

his face.

What's he hiding

under that makeup?

Can we get a minute,

people, please?

Him again?

Where are the others?

Another bunch of smalltimers.

Some of the marked

notes I gave you.

My detectives have been making

drug busts with them for weeks.

This bank was another draft of the mob.

That makes five.

We found a bulk of the dirty cash.

Time to move in.

We would have to hit all banks

simultaneously. Swat teams, backup.

What about this Joker guy?

One man or the entire mob?

He can wait.

When the new DA hears

about this they want in.

Do you trust him?

It'd be hard to keep him out.

I hear he is as stubborn as you are.

It would be nice when Wayne

manor is rebuilt.

If you can swap not sleeping in a penthouse

you're not sleeping in a mansion.

Whenever you stich yourself up

you do make a bloody mess.

Yeah. It makes me

learn from my mistakes.

You ought to be pretty

knowledgable by now.

My armor. Carrying too

much weight. I need to be faster.

I'm sure Mr. Fox

can oblige.

Did you get mauled by a tiger?

It was a dog.

-- Ah?

-- It was a big dog.

More copycats last night,

Alfred. With guns.

Why don't you hire them

and take a weekend off?

That wasn't ... exactly what I had in mind

when I said I wanted to inspire people.

I know.

But things have improved.

Look at the new district attorney.

I am. Closely.

I need to know if he can be trusted.

Are you interested in his character

or ... his sexual circle?

Who Rachel spends her time

with is her business.

I trust you don't have

me followed on my day off.

If you ever took

one I might.

Know your limits, master Wayne.

The Batman has no limits.

But you do, sir.

Well, I can't afford to know them.

What's going to happen on

the day that you find out?

We all know how much you
