What is the best Batman quote and why is it "She wants to kill you, Dick"?

16 March 2023

The line "She wants to kill you, Dick" is spoken by Batman to Robin in the 1997 film "Batman & Robin," directed by Joel Schumacher.

In the film, Batman and Robin are fighting Poison Ivy, a villainess who has seductive powers and a plant-based arsenal. Batman warns Robin that Poison Ivy is dangerous and manipulative, and that she is specifically targeting him for her own twisted reasons.

The quote has a darkly comedic undertone, as Batman's matter-of-fact delivery and use of Robin's real name creates a jarring contrast with the absurdity of the situation.

The quote has become memorable among Batman fans because of the pun, where Batman uses Robin's actual name to imply he is behaving like a dick, or rather thinking with his penis. 

Check out the clip from the film:
