Gambol Quotes in The Dark Knight (2008)
Gambol's Bodyguard: Yo, Gambol, there's somebody here for you. They say they just killed the Joker.
Gambol's Bodyguard: They brought the body.
[a body bag is brought in and dropped on the table; Gambol unzips it, revealing Joker's face]
Gambol: So. For dead, that's 500...
The Joker: [sitting up and sticking a blade in Gambol's mouth] How 'bout alive?
[Joker's men hold the bodyguards]
The Joker: You wanna know how I got these scars? My father, was a drinker, and a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn't like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me and says, "Why so serious?" Comes at me with the knife. "WHY SO SERIOUS?" He sticks the blade in my mouth... "Let's put a smile on that face." And...
[glancing at thug]
The Joker: Why so serious?
Gambol: [to The Joker during a private sit down meeting with the gangsters] Give me one reason why I shouldn't have my boy here pull your head off.
The Joker: How about a magic trick?
[pulls out a pencil and sticks it upright into the table]
The Joker: I'm gonna make this pencil disappear.
[Gambol's thug walks over to kill The Joker, who slams his face into the pencil and kills him]
The Joker: Ta-daa! It's... it's gone.
Gambol: [During a private sit down meeting with the gangsters] You think you can steal from us and just walk away?
The Joker: Yeah.
The Joker: [During a private sit down meeting with the gangsters] If we don't deal with this now, soon little, uh, Gambol here won't be able to get a nickel for his grandma.
Gambol: [explodes] Enough from the clown!
[He rises to his feet; Joker does too, opening his coat to reveal a cluster of grenades, attached to a string around his thumb]
The Joker: Ah-ta-ta-ta! Let's not *blow*...
Man No. 1: Shit!
The Joker: ...this out of proportion.
Gambol: [During a private sit down meeting with the gangsters] You're crazy.
The Joker: I'm not. No, I'm not.
Gambol: I'm putting the word out: Five hundred grand for this clown dead, a million alive so I can teach him some manners first.
Lau: [During a video conference with the gangsters] As you're all aware, one of our deposits were stolen. It was a relatively small amount: sixty million dollars.
The Chechen: Who's stupid enough to steal from us?
Salvatore Maroni: Some two-bit whack job. Wears a cheap purple suit and makeup. He's not the problem. The problem is our money being tracked by the cops.
Lau: Thanks to Mr. Maroni's well-placed sources, we know the police have indeed identified our banks using marked bills and are planning to seize your funds today. And since the enthusiastic new DA has put all my competitors out of business, I'm your only option.
The Chechen: What do you propose?
Lau: Moving all secure deposits to one location, not a bank.
Gambol: Where then?
Lau: No one can know but me. If the police were to gain leverage over one of you, then everyone's money would be at stake.
The Chechen: What will stop them from getting to you?
Lau: I'll go to Hong Kong, far from Dent's jurisdiction, and the Chinese will not extradite one of their own.
Salvatore Maroni: How soon can you move the money?
Lau: I already have.
