THE JOKER
All it takes is one rotten day to transform a normal man into a monster! Well, in my case, a rotten day and a chemical bath. [laughs maniacally]

THE JOKER
Takes after his pa, wouldn't you say?
BATMAN
What did you do to him?
THE JOKER
Just some laughing gas, drag. Don't tell me you're not an inmate. [jumps down] What rational being dresses like you? Speaking of threads, think this is a good look for me?
BATMAN
Who are you?
THE JOKER
Joker.
BATMAN
Not what. Who?
THE JOKER
Smear-free. It's perma-clown! Ooh, tough crowd. Look. Nothing up my sleeves. Ha, ha. Nothing that won't put a smile on your face. Say cheese!
THE JOKER
I'm out of gas.
BATMAN
And I'm out of patience!
THE JOKER
You really know how to spoil a coming-out party. How do you expect me to spread mirth and whimsy without a proper hideout?
BATMAN
Listen, Joker, you're sick. You need help.
THE JOKER
Well, maybe I am a little off. [kicks Batman] But what are you gonna do, lock me in the loony bin? I'm already here!

CLAYFACE
Come on in, Batman. It's time to say our goodbyes to Chief Rojas.
BATMAN
Let him go.
CLAYFACE
What, you don't approve, Bats? After all, to Rojas here, we're both on the wrong side of the law.
BATMAN
It doesn't matter what he thinks. It's the code you live by that matters. And you don't wanna cross a line that you can't uncross.
CLAYFACE
Maybe you haven't noticed, Bats, but my line's been crossed for good!
DETECTIVE ELLEN YIN
Ethan, no!
DETECTIVE ETHAN BENNETT
It's not cool anymore to reveal secret identities, Yin.
DETECTIVE ELLEN YIN
Not that it matters.
BRUCE WAYNE
When I can be anyone I choose.
BATMAN
And when I'm no longer sure what I am.
THE JOKER
Except a freak! [laughs] You know what separates the freaks from the normals? Just one rotten day. Ever had a really rotten day, Batman?
CLAYFACE
Thought so.
BATMAN
Joker's rotten to the core by choice. A choice that's still yours to make, Detective.
DETECTIVE ELLEN YIN
Turn yourself in, Ethan. We can help you.
CLAYFACE
You don't get it, do you? Joker didn't just melt my skin, he melted my mind! I am a freak, inside and out! And Chief Rojas has zero-tolerance for the likes of me!

THE JOKER
Knock-knock!
KILLGORE STEED
[opening the door] Evening, Joker.
THE JOKER
[disappointed] You're supposed to say, "Who's there?"

THE JOKER
Detective Bennett... You're Clayface?
CLAYFACE
You turned me into Clay!
THE JOKER
Funny, I was trying to turn you into dust.
