Yes, I am a woman—the daughter of Mademoiselle Marie!
~ Julia Remarque.
I didn't work for him long, but I came to understand was... he never cared about what Batman meant. I mean he did, but not the way you do. Batman was simply him. His code. He just did what he thought was right, and what Batman stood for grew out of that. You worry about Batman meaning something to people, you'll go down fast. But if you stop and just be you, Jim... if you do it your way, the things you believe in, the things you stand for? Batman will stand for those, too.
~ Julia Pennyworth to Commissioner Gordon.
