The Dark Knight Rises – Alfred Quotes

Alfred laments Bruce Wayne’s return to Gotham:

Alfred: [to Bruce] Remember when you left Gotham? Before all this, before Batman? You were gone seven years. Seven years I waited, hoping that you wouldn’t come back. Every year, I took a holiday. I went to Florence, there’s this cafe, on the banks of the Arno. Every fine evening, I’d sit there and order a Fernet Branca. I had this fantasy, that I would look across the tables and I’d see you there, with a wife and maybe a couple of kids. You wouldn’t say anything to me, nor me to you. But we’d both know that you’d made it, that you were happy. I never wanted you to come back to Gotham. I always knew there was nothing here for you, except pain and tragedy. And I wanted something more for you than that. I still do.

Alfred brings Bruce Wayne up to date on Gotham’s latest nemesis:

Alfred: If you’re seriously considering going back out there, you should hear the rumors surrounding Bane.

Bruce Wayne: I’m all ears.

Alfred: There is a prison in a more ancient part of the world, a pit where men are thrown to suffer and die. But sometimes a man rises from the darkness. Sometimes the pit sends something back.

Bruce Wayne: Bane.

Alfred: Right. Born and raised in hell on earth.

Bruce Wayne: Born in prison?

Alfred: No one knows why or how he escaped, but they do know that once he did he was trained by Ra’s Al Ghul, your mentor.

Bruce Wayne: Bane was a member of The League of Shadows.

Alfred: And then he was excommunicated. And any man who is too extreme for Ra’s Al Ghul is not to be trifled with.

Alfred doesn’t want Bruce Wayne to put himself in danger once again:

Bruce Wayne: If this man is everything that you say he is, then this city needs me.

Alfred: This city needs Bruce Wayne, your resources, your knowledge. It doesn’t need your body, or your life. That time has passed.

Bruce Wayne: You’re afraid that if I go back out there I’ll fail.

Alfred: No. I’m afraid that you want to.

Alfred attempts a little matchmaking:

Alfred: [about Selina Kyle] You two should exchange notes over coffee.

Bruce Wayne: So now you’re trying to set me up with a jewel thief?

Alfred: At this point, I would set you up with a chimpanzee if I thought it would get you out in the world again.

Bruce Wayne: There’s nothing out there for me.

Alfred: And that’s the problem. You hung up your cape and your cowl, but you didn’t move on, you never went to find a life, to find someone…

Bruce Wayne: Alfred… I did find someone.

Alfred: I won’t bury you. I buried enough members of the Wayne family.

Alfred: You see only one end to your journey. Sometimes, a man rises from the darkness.

Alfred: Maybe it’s time we stop trying to outsmart the Truth and let it have it’s day!

Alfred: You are as precious to me as you were to your own mother and father. I swore to them that I would protect you, and I haven’t.

Alfred: Batman is gone! The city needs YOU now! Your resources, your knowledge! It doesn’t need your body… or your life.

Bruce Wayne: You expect to destroy my world, and then we’re just going to shake hands?

Alfred: No. I know what this means. It means your hatred. It means losing someone whom I have cared for since his cries first echoed through this house.
