Jason Todd: What? What, your moral code just won’t allow for that? It’s too hard to cross that line?
Batman: No. God Almighty, no. It’d be too damned easy. All I’ve ever wanted to do is kill him. A day doesn’t go by I don’t think about subjecting him to every horrendous torture he’s dealt out to others, and then end him.
Joker: Awwww, so you DO think about me.
Batman: But if I do that, if I allow myself to go down into that place, I’ll never come back.
