Selina Kyle Quotes in The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Selina Kyle Quotes:
Selina Kyle: There's a storm coming, Mr. Wayne. You and your friends better batten down the hatches, because when it hits, you're all gonna wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us.
Bruce Wayne: You sound like you're looking forward to it.
Selina Kyle: I'm adaptable.
John Blake: Bane? What do you know about him?
Selina Kyle: That you should be as afraid of him as I am.
John Blake: You made some mistakes, Miss Kyle.
Selina Kyle: A girl's gotta eat.
John Blake: Well, you got quite an appetite.
Bruce Wayne: Mind if I cut in?
[the old man who was dancing with Selina leaves, annoyed, as Bruce starts dancing slowly with her]
Bruce Wayne: Oh, you don't seem happy to see me.
Selina Kyle: You were supposed to be a shut-in.
Bruce Wayne: I felt like some fresh air.
Selina Kyle: Why didn't you call the police?
Bruce Wayne: I have a powerful friend who deals with things like this.
[notices the cat ears that are Selina's goggle lenses]
Bruce Wayne: That's a brazen costume for a cat burglar.
Selina Kyle: Yeah? Who are you pretending to be?
Bruce Wayne: Bruce Wayne, eccentric billionaire. Who's your date?
[referring the old man she was dancing with and who is now watching them]
Selina Kyle: His wife's in Ibiza. She left her diamonds behind, though. Worried they might get stolen.
Bruce Wayne: Mm. It's pronounced Ibeetha. You wouldn't want any of these folks realizing you're a crook, not a social climber.
Selina Kyle: You think I care what anyone in this room thinks of me?
Bruce Wayne: I doubt you care what anyone in any room thinks of you.
Selina Kyle: Don't condescend, Mr. Wayne. You don't know a thing about me.
Bruce Wayne: Well, Selina Kyle, I know you came here from your walk-up in Old Town, a modest place for a master jewel thief. Which means that either you're saving for retirement, or you're in deep with the wrong people.
Selina Kyle: You don't get to judge me just because you were born in the master bedroom of Wayne Manor.
Bruce Wayne: Actually, I was born in the Regency Room.
Selina Kyle: I started out doing what I had to. Once you've done what you had to, they'll never let you do what you want to.
Bruce Wayne: Start fresh.
Selina Kyle: There's no fresh start in today's world. Any twelve-year-old with a cell phone could find out what you did. Everything we do is collated and quantified. Everything sticks.
Bruce Wayne: Is that how you justify stealing?
Selina Kyle: I take what I need to from those who have more than enough. I don't stand on the shoulders of people with less.
Bruce Wayne: Robin Hood?
Selina Kyle: I think I do more to help someone than most of the people in this room. Than you.
Bruce Wayne: I think maybe you're assuming a little too much.
Selina Kyle: Maybe you're being unrealistic about what's really in your pants other than your wallet.
Bruce Wayne: Ouch.
John Blake: When I spotted you, I was looking for a friend of mine, Bruce Wayne. Did they kill him?
Selina Kyle: I'm not sure.
Gangbanger: [Two street thugs catch a little boy that has stolen an apple from them] You steal from us, you little bastard?
[Selina appears and twists his arm from behind]
Selina Kyle: You boys know you can't come into my neighborhood without asking politely.
[She cracks his arm, knocking the apple into her hand. The boy watches as she knocks both thugs out]
Selina Kyle: Never steal anything from someone you can't outrun, kid.
[takes a bite out of the apple, and tosses it to the kid, who takes it and runs off]
Bruce Wayne: Pretty generous, for a thief.
[Selina turns to see Bruce approaching]
Selina Kyle: I thought they killed you.
Bruce Wayne: Not yet.
Selina Kyle: If you're expecting an apology...
Bruce Wayne: It wouldn't suit you.
[Blake captures Selina at the airport]
John Blake: I showed your picture to the Congressman. Guess what?
Selina Kyle: Don't tell me, still in love?
John Blake: Oh, head over heels. Pressing charges, though.
Selina Kyle: Look, you wouldn't beat up a woman any more than I would beat up a cripple.
[she kicks Bruce's cane and he falls]
Selina Kyle: Of course, sometimes exceptions have to be made.
Selina Kyle: [the Congressman has just been shot in the leg] Keep some pressure on that, darling.
Congressman: Call me.
Selina Kyle: [She enters the Congressman's car] Can I have a ride?
Congressman: You read my mind.
Selina Kyle: I don't know what you're planning to do with Mr. Wayne's prints, but I'm guessing you'll need his thumb. You don't count so good, huh?
Selina Kyle: Shrimp balls?
Selina Kyle: Honey, I'm home. Oh, I forgot. I'm not married.
Selina Kyle: A kiss under the mistletoe. You know, mistletoe can be deadly if you eat it.
Bruce Wayne: But a kiss can be even deadlier... if you mean it.
[silence as they realize each other's identities]
Selina Kyle: Oh, my God. Does this mean we have to start fighting?
Bruce Wayne: Let's go outside.
[Shreck shoots Batman]
Selina Kyle: You killed me... The Penguin killed me... Batman killed me... that's... three lives down. You got enough in there to finish me off?
Maximillian 'Max' Shreck: One way to find out.
[Shreck fires two shots at Catwoman]
Selina Kyle: Four... Five...
[cracks her whip]
Selina Kyle: Still alive!
[Shreck fires two more]
Selina Kyle: Six... Seven... All good girls go to heaven...
[now within reach of Shreck; he pulls the trigger, but there are no bullets left; she laughs hysterically]
Selina Kyle: Two lives left. I think I'll save one for next Christmas. But in the meantime, how about a kiss, Santy Claus?
[grabs ahold of a power cable and moves towards Shreck with a stun gun and a kiss]
Selina Kyle: It's gonna be a hot time on the cold town tonight.
Bruce Wayne: You-you've got kind of a - kind of a dark side, don't you?
Selina Kyle: No darker than yours, Bruce.
Selina Kyle: [Selina walks Bruce to the elevator] You don't seem like the type who does business with Mr. Shreck.
Bruce Wayne: No, you don't seem like the type that takes orders from him.
Selina Kyle: Well, that's a... long story.
Bruce Wayne: You know, I could... free up some time.
[Bruce walks in elevator]
Selina Kyle: I'm listed.
Bruce Wayne: I'm tempted.
Selina Kyle: I'm working.
Bruce Wayne: [Elevator doors close] I'm leaving!
Bruce Wayne: Here's what I want you to do... tell Selina - tell Miss Kyle in there - tell her, uh, tell her I had to go out of town, a big business deal came up or some... no, you know what? Tell her, you know, not in some dumb, "be my girlfriend" kind of way...
Alfred: I will relay the message.
Bruce Wayne: Great.
Alfred: Miss Kyle...
Selina Kyle: Alfred, hi!
Alfred: Mr. Wayne told me to tell you...
Selina Kyle: Mr. Wayne? Oh, Bruce. Yes. Um, would you tell him for me that, uh, I've been going through a lot of changes, and... no. Um, just that this is not a rejection, my abruptly leaving. In fact, he makes me feel the way I hope I really am... no! Could you just make up a sonnet or something? A dirty limerick?
Alfred: One has just sprung to mind.
Selina Kyle: Thanks!
Selina Kyle: It's the so-called "normal" guys who always let you down. Sickos never scare me. Least they're committed.
Selina Kyle: Wow, *the* Batman - or is it just "Batman"? Uh, your choice, of course!
[Batman walks away]
Selina Kyle: Well, that was very brief. Just like all the men in my life.
Selina Kyle: Okay, go ahead. Intimidate me, bully me if it makes you feel big. I mean it's not like you can just kill me.
Maximillian 'Max' Shreck: Actually, it's a lot like that.
Selina Kyle: How can you be so mean to someone so meaningless?
Bruce Wayne: [notices Selina's injuries] What happened?
Maximillian 'Max' Shreck: Did you injure yourself on that ski slope? Is that why you cut short your vacation and came back?
Selina Kyle: You know, it's... a blur. I-I mean, not complete amnesia. I-I-I - I remember Sister Mary Margaret puking in church and Betsy Riley saying it was morning sickness and I remember the time I forgot to wear my underpants to school and the name of the boy who noticed was Ricky Friedberg.
Selina Kyle: He's dead now. But last night: complete blur. Couldn't you just die?
Selina Kyle: Well, the party never stops on Selina Kyle's answering machine...
Batman: Let me ask you something, Why'd you come tonight?
Selina Kyle: You first.
Batman: To see you.
Selina Kyle: That's lovely, and I really wish I could say the same. But, I came for Max.
Batman: What do you mean, you and... not you and Max?
Selina Kyle: [laughs maniacally] No. not me and Max...
[reaches down and pull a pistol out of her garter]
Selina Kyle: *this* and Max!
Batman: [Frantically tries to cover the pistol]
Selina Kyle: Now *don't* give me a "Killing Max won't solve anything" speech, because it will. Aren't you tired of this sanctimonious robber baron always coming out on top, when he should be six feet under?
Batman: Look, you may have problems with your boss, but who do you think you are?
Selina Kyle: [sighs, laughs] I don't know anymore, Bruce.
[laughs again. They kiss]
