Martha Wayne: Are you ready to let it go now? To move on?
Batman: To go to my final reward? I told you, Mom, I don't believe in--
Martha Wayne: You don't get Heaven, or Hell. Do you know the only reward you get for being Batman? You get to be Batman.
And--when you're a child--you get a handful of years of real happiness, with your father, with me. It's more than some people get.
