Batman Begins (2005) Poster


Morgan Freeman: Lucius Fox



  • Lucius Fox : [Bruce points to the Tumbler]  The Tumbler? Oh you wouldn't be interested in that.

    [Cuts to Bruce test driving the Tumbler on an indoor course, with Fox in the passenger's seat describing the vehicle] 

    Lucius Fox : She was built as a bridging vehicle. During combat, two of these would jump over a river, towing cables. Over here on the throttle, flip that open and throttle up. This will boost you into a rampless jump.

    [Bruce goes to flip the throttle] 

    Lucius Fox : Not now! Not... not now, Sir!

    [Bruce flips it back] 

    The Tumbler : Afterburner disengaged.

    Lucius Fox : We never could get the damn bridge to work, but this baby works just fine.

    [Bruce brings the Tumbler to a stop. He is very impressed] 

    Lucius Fox : So what do you think?

    Bruce Wayne : Does it come in black?

  • Bruce Wayne : [answers the phone]  Bruce Wayne.

    Earle : What makes you think *you* can decide who's running Wayne Enterprises?

    Bruce Wayne : Well, the fact that I'm the owner.

    Earle : What are you talking about? The company went public a week ago.

    Bruce Wayne : And I bought most of the shares. Through various charitable foundations, trusts, and so forth - look, it's all a bit technical, but the important thing is that *my* company's future is secure.

    [speaks up] 

    Bruce Wayne : Right, Mister Fox?

    Lucius Fox : Right you are, Mister Wayne.

    [Fox hangs up the phone, turns to Earle and takes off his glasses] 

    Lucius Fox : [with relish]  Didn't you get the memo?

    [Earle is speechless] 

  • Bruce Wayne : [about the prototype Batsuit]  Tear resistant?

    Lucius Fox : This sucker will stop a knife.

    Bruce Wayne : Bulletproof?

    Lucius Fox : Anything but a straight shot.

    Bruce Wayne : Why didn't they put it into production?

    Lucius Fox : Bean counters didn't think a soldier's life was worth 300 grand. So, what's your interest in it, Mr. Wayne?

    Bruce Wayne : I wanna borrow it. For, uh, spelunking.

    Lucius Fox : Spelunking?

    Bruce Wayne : Yeah, you know, cave diving.

    Lucius Fox : You expecting to run into much gunfire in these caves?

    Bruce Wayne : Look, I'd rather Mr. Earle didn't know about me borrowing...

    Lucius Fox : Mr. Wayne, the way I see it, all this stuff is yours anyway.

  • Lucius Fox : It's called memory cloth. Notice anything?

    [Bruce runs the material through his fingers, and shrugs, "no."] 

    Lucius Fox : Regularly flexible. But put a current through it...

    [the cloth springs into the shape of a one-person tent] 

    Lucius Fox : Molecules re-align, becomes rigid.

    Bruce Wayne : What kind of shapes can you make?

    Lucius Fox : Can be tailored to fit any structure based on a rigid skeleton.

    Bruce Wayne : Too expensive for the Army?

    Lucius Fox : I don't think they tried to market it to the billionaire, spelunking, BASE-jumping crowd.

    Bruce Wayne : Look, Mr. Fox.

    Lucius Fox : Yes, sir?

    Bruce Wayne : If you're uncomfortable...

    Lucius Fox : Mister Wayne, if you don't want to tell me exactly what you're doing, when I'm asked, I don't have to lie. But don't think of me as an idiot.

    Bruce Wayne : Fair enough.

  • [after taking a ride in The Tumbler] 

    Lucius Fox : So, what do you think?

    Bruce Wayne : [smiling]  Does it come in black?

  • Lucius Fox : [Bruce Wayne is recovering after being poisoned by Scarecrow]  I analyzed your blood, isolating the receptor compounds and the protein-based catalyst.

    Bruce Wayne : Am I meant to understand any of that?

    Lucius Fox : Not at all, I just wanted you to know how hard it was. Bottom line, I synthesized an antidote.

    Bruce Wayne : Could you make more?

    Lucius Fox : You planning on gassing yourself again, Mr Wayne?

    Bruce Wayne : Well, you know how it is, Mr Fox. You're out at night, looking for kicks, someone's passing around the weaponized hallucinogens...

    Lucius Fox : I'll bring what I have. The antidote should inoculate you for now.

  • [Earle enters the conference room and, in disbelief, sees Fox, resplendent in a suit and bow tie, distributing materials to board members seated around the table] 

    Earle : Fox? I seem to remember firing you.

    Lucius Fox : You did. I got another job: Yours.

    Earle : On whose authority?

  • Bruce Wayne : They're planning on dosing the entire city with toxin.

    Lucius Fox : [shaking his head]  Water supply won't help you disperse an inhalant...

    [pauses, realizing] 

    Bruce Wayne : What?

    Lucius Fox : ...Unless you had a microwave emitter capable of vaporizing all the water in the mains. A microwave emitter like the one Wayne Enterprises just misplaced.

    Bruce Wayne : "Misplaced?"

    Lucius Fox : Earle just fired me for asking too many questions about it.

    Bruce Wayne : I need you to go back to Wayne Enterprises right now and start making more of that antidote. I think the police are going to need all they can get their hands on, okay?

    Lucius Fox : My security clearance has been revoked.

    Bruce Wayne : Oh, that wouldn't stop a man like you now, would it, Mr. Fox?

    Lucius Fox : [smiling]  I suppose not.

  • Bruce Wayne : You were on the board?

    Lucius Fox : When your father ran things, yeah.

    Bruce Wayne : You knew my father?

    Lucius Fox : Oh, yeah. Helped him build his train. Ah, here we are. Kevlar utility harness. Gas-powered magnetic grapple gun. The three hundred and fifty pound test monofilament. Wonderful project, your dad's train. Routed it right into Wayne Tower along with the water and power utilities. Kind of made Wayne Tower the unofficial centre of Gotham City. Of course, Earle let it go to rot. Here we are. Nomex survival suit for advanced infantry. Kevlar biweave, reinforced joints.

  • Lucius Fox : Well, what is it today? More spelunking?

    Bruce Wayne : No. Today it's BASE-jumping.

    Lucius Fox : BASE-jumping. That like parachuting?

    Bruce Wayne : Kinda. Do you have any light-weight fabrics?

    Lucius Fox : You know... I think I have just the thing.

  • Bruce Wayne : What's that?

    Lucius Fox : The Tumbler? Oh, you wouldn't be interested in that.
