A Batman: The Killing Joke Quote By My Brother GC

Earlier this week my brother GC and I watched the animated film Batman: The Killing Joke, and there was a scene in the film where The Joker told Batman a joke:

Batman: The Killing Joke Movie Ending

See, there were these two guys in a lunatic asylum…and one night, one night they decide they don’t like living in an asylum any more.

They decide they’re going to escape!

So, like, they get up onto the roof and there, just across this narrow gap, they see the rooftops of the town, stretching away in the moonlight…stretching away to freedom.

Now, the first guy, he jumps right across with no problem.

But his friend, his friend daredn’t make the leap.

Y’see…y’see, he’s afraid of falling.

So then, the first guy has an idea…He says ‘Hey!

I have my flashlight with me!

I’ll shine it across the gap between the buildings.

You can walk along the beam and join me!’ B-but the second guy just shakes his head.

He suh-says… he says ‘What do you think I am? Crazy?

You’d turn it off when I was half way across!

I had several dreams last night but I did not voice record any of them, and so now I can only barely remember part of the end of one dream.

I was working at a building that was like a combination of a chemical plant, school, apartment, office, the employee area of a library, et cetera.

There was more that happened before this part of the dream but I can not remember those parts of the dream, and I remember working in a room with some fictional and real coworkers of mine from The BP Library like Mrs. D.

I also worked with was a fictional short out-of-shape female coworker with white skin with long brown hair who seemed to be a higher level employee than me and she seemed to be my teacher and/or former teacher at the school parts of this building and she was familiar to me even though she was probably not a person I know in real life, and I also worked with an out-of-shape maybe somewhat balding man with white skin with black hair with maybe a mustache who somewhat reminded me of the Nintendo video game character Mario combined with my former coworker Mr. LS combined with the animated character Carl Brutananadilewski from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

We were sorting and organizing library materials, mostly DVDs at the time, and I remember finding a strange DVD case that was shaped like a cowboy boot gun and I did not know how to open it.

I eventually found a trigger or button that opened the DVD case, I showed it to the others, and at some point I remember walking outside and I think that it was dark outside and the chemical plant-like areas surrounded us so you could only see the chemical plant-like buildings and smoke and some of the sky.

I walked to a concrete area where I assume some people take their breaks, I talked with my fictional female coworker and teacher or former teacher, and there was possibly another area that led to a small dock and water that I went to earlier in the dream but I can not remember.

There were possibly some teachers taking breaks in this area as well, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,
