Vengeance runs in the blood..taglines
- The psychos just keep getting younger.
- I know what you're thinking, You're thinking you could be Robin. Well you can't.
- You know, Bats... the problem with steroids is I get the munchies.
- [Alfred is showing Damian his bedroom]
- Alfred Pennyworth: I hope this isn't too cramped for you. That door heads to your bath. The other, to a game room. And you also have this for your amusement. [Alfred turns on the T.V. and Looney Tunes plays] Naturally, you have the run of the mansion.
- Damian Wayne: Of course. I know that. Prepare some tea, Pennyworth. Brown sugar instead of white, fresh-cut lemon. A china cup.
- Alfred Pennyworth: Perhaps master would like some warm mixed nuts and a moist hand towel.
- Damian Wayne: Watch yourself, Pennyworth. I'm not so young that I don't understand sarcasm.
- Alfred Pennyworth: While I am much too old to care.
- Talia al Ghul: Want a drink?
- Batman: Last time you offered me one, it didn't go so well.
- Talia al Ghul: It made you romantic.
- Batman: It made me do what you wanted.
- Damian Wayne: I'll drive.
- Batman: No.
- Damian Wayne: I know how.
- Batman: No.
- Damian Wayne: So this is the fabled Batcave. Grandfather told me about it. Smaller than I imagined. Very efficient, though.
- Alfred Pennyworth: He is the spitting image of you at that age. It's a bit chilling.
- Talia al Ghul: I thank you for my life and the life of my son.
- Batman: Our son.
- Talia al Ghul: I need to rebuild the League. Make it stronger, better. Come with me. You and I, together with Damian, would be invincible.
- Batman: The best way to fix the League is to disband it.
- Talia al Ghul: If only it were that easy. Damian should stay with me. He will want to be with his mother.
- Batman: He's Robin now. He stays with the Batman.
- Batman: Alfred?
- Alfred Pennyworth: Yes, sir.
- Batman: We're going to have company.
- Alfred Pennyworth: A sleepover? Oh, goody.
- [Alfred is stitching up Dick after his battle with Damian.]
- Dick Grayson: Really ticks me off; after all the lectures he gave me about using protection.
- Alfred Pennyworth: Indeed.
- [Dick winces.]
- Alfred Pennyworth: Are you alright, Master Dick?
- Dick Grayson: I took the cut, I can take the stitch.
- Damian Wayne: [watching from the balcony, smugly] Maybe you need more anesthetic.
- Dick Grayson: [royally pissed] And maybe YOU need to go fu--
- Alfred Pennyworth: Master Dick!
- Damian Wayne: Maybe you should remember who the blood son is.
- Dick Grayson: "Bloodthirsty" is more like it.
- Deathstroke: Go ahead. Finish me. You were trained to kill your enemies, weren't you? It's what you want. It's what your grandfather would do. It's what I would do. Well, do it!
- Robin: No. I'm my father's son, too. I'm Robin!
- Batman: Talk.
- Nightwing: [Calling Batman] Missing something?
- Batman: Not in the mood for games.
- Nightwing: I have a kid here. [Turns to Damian] Who says he's your son?
- [Damian, who's been tied up and gagged by Nightwing, growls at him.]
- Batman: [Sighs, in a resigned tone] I'll be right there.
- Batman: You look like you've been working out, Croc. The tail's new.
- Killer Croc: Yeah, got an upgrade.
- [Damian is training in the garden, slashing up the many topiaries]
- Alfred Pennyworth: I think we might be able to skip the gardener.
- Bruce Wayne: Well, he was trained by the League of Assassins.
- Alfred Pennyworth: I, myself, am rooting for the shrubbery.
- Damian Wayne: I wanna help. Like he used to. [points to Dick]
- Batman: Bad enough you've given yourself away and let them know we're onto them, but you're letting vengeance guide you.
- Damian Wayne: You've never felt vengeful?
- Batman: Every day. You have to keep your center, Damian. You can't fight crime by becoming a criminal. From now on, stay close. That's an order.
- Damian Wayne: Is this what you wore in training?
- Dick Grayson: It's what I wore when I went on patrol.
- Damian Wayne: The only thing that's missing is lace trim and a sun hat.
- Dick Grayson: You don't fool me. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that you could be Robin. Well, you can't.
- Damian Wayne: I don't need some insipid costume and a bird name. I'm way beyond your kind of simplistic training. As you saw tonight.
- Dick Grayson: Don't forget, you lost that fight.
- Deathstroke: Now your luck ends.
- Robin: You call it luck, I call it skill. [spits in Deathstroke's eye]
