The Scarecrow Quotes in Batman Begins (2005)


The Scarecrow Quotes:

  • The Scarecrow: Boo!

    [sprays a dose of fear toxin at Batman]

    The Scarecrow: Aw, having trouble?

    [Batman starts hallucinating and tumbles backward into an easy chair]

    The Scarecrow: Take a seat. Have a drink.

    [splashes Batman with alcohol]

    The Scarecrow: You look like a man who takes himself too seriously.

    [produces a lighter and lights it]

    The Scarecrow: Do you want my opinion? You need to lighten up.

    [tosses the lighter at Batman, setting him on fire]

  • Carmine Falcone: [feigning insanity] Yeah, Doctor Crane, I can't take it anymore. It's all too much. "The walls are closing in." Blah, blah, blah. Couple more days of this food, it'll be true.

    Dr. Jonathan Crane: What do you want?

    Carmine Falcone: I want to know how you're gonna convince me to keep my mouth shut.

    Dr. Jonathan Crane: About what? You don't know anything.

    Carmine Falcone: I know you don't want the police to take a closer look at the drugs they seized. And I know about your experiments with the inmates of your nuthouse. See, I don't go into business with a guy without finding out his dirty secrets. And those goons you used - I own the muscle in this town. Now, I've been bringing your stuff in for months, so whatever he's planning, it's big, and I want in.

    Dr. Jonathan Crane: Well, I already know what he'll say: that we should kill you.

    Carmine Falcone: [chuckling] No, even he can't get me in here. Not in my town.

    Dr. Jonathan Crane: [sighs, then matter-of-factly] Would you like to see my mask? I use it in my experiments.

    [takes out the Scarecrow mask]

    Dr. Jonathan Crane: Now, probably not very frightening to a guy like you, but these crazies, they can't stand it.

    [he puts it on]

    Carmine Falcone: So when did the nut take over the nuthouse?

    [Crane sprays fear gas into Falcone's face; Falcone begins to scream in terror as the gas takes effect: Crane's voice is altered, and the mask appears to move like a real face]

    The Scarecrow: They scream, and they cry. Much as you're doing now.

    [Cuts to later outside Falcone's cell. He is still screaming]

    Dr. Jonathan Crane: Well, he's not faking, not that one. I'll talk to the judge and see if I can get him moved to the secure wing at Arkham. I can't treat him here.

  • The Scarecrow: [riding through a riot on a hooded horse] There's nothing to fear but fear itself!

  • Rachel Dawes: [attempting to comfort a frightened child] It's okay. No one's gonna hurt you.

    The Scarecrow: [tearing in on horseback] Of *course* they are!

    Rachel Dawes: Crane?

    The Scarecrow: [leaning towards Rachel and holding up his finger as though to correct her] No. Scarecrow!

  • The Scarecrow: [to Rachael] Who knows you're here? Who knows?
