Joker is one of the most impactful comic book movies in a long time. The Todd Phillips directorial is heavily inspired from Martin Scorsese's previous works like Taxi Driver and King of Comedy. Here are the 9 best dialogues from Joker that will stay with you long after the movie is over.
“Are you having any negative thoughts? All I have are negative thoughts.”
One of the most iconic dialogues from Joker. Fleck says this when his therapist asks him about his mental health. The way he says it is quite impactful.
Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?"
Yet another conversation Fleck is having with his therapist where she agrees with him to say that society is heading for a downfall.
“The worst part of having a mental illness is people expect you to behave as if you don’t.”
Probably the most famous quote from Joker (2019) is this harsh truth that touches upon society which doesn't treat mental health patients seriously.
“For my whole life, I didn’t know if I even really existed. But I do, and people are starting to notice.”
Once again, while speaking to the social worker, Arthur Fleck talks about how he is feeling the attention and actually loving it.
“I don’t want anything from you. Maybe a little warmth, maybe a hug, dad, maybe a bit of common decency!”
This scene is quite impactful as Arthur confronts Thomas Wayne, his alleged father, at the opera house and asks for his love.
“When you bring me out, can you introduce me as Joker?”
By the end of the movie, Arthur Fleck is seen featured on the Murray Franklin show, where he asks the host to call him Joker while calling him up to stage.
“I used to think that my life was a tragedy. But now I realise, it’s a comedy.”
Impactful and quite deep.
"I hope my death makes more cents than my life."
One of the most important plot points is this dark joke written by Arthur Fleck, clearly showing us his psychopathic tendencies.
