The Dark Knight – Joker Interrogation Scene Spoof

The Dark Knight, while one of the more enjoyable films produced so far this year, was not without flaws. Perhaps one of the biggest criticisms was that of Christian Bale’s over-the-top Batman voice. YouTube user MonkeyandApple did a great job summarizing this in a succint and hilarious spoof, featured here.

Batman: (raspy) Why do you want to kill me?

Joker: Ah, you mind, uh, saying that one more time?

B: (raspier) Why do you want to kill me?

J: Wha-… um?

B: (even raspier) Why do you want to kill me?

J: *confused look*

B: (still raspy) I said, “Why do you want to kill me?”

J: Um, ok… Um… I, I uh, I don’t know if it’s just me, but I uh… I can’t understand what you’re saying.

B: (nearly unintelligible) Don’t play games with me, Joker…

J: Nope, still, still uh… still just guttural sounds to my ears.

B: (nearly unintelligible) Don’t play games with me, joker! *unintelligible*

J: Ok um, were obviously having some failure at communication. I um…  I’m not picking up…  words?

B: (very raspy) Don’t play games with me, Joker! (punches Joker) *unintelligible*

J: Ok… not gonna help — the hitting.

B: *unintelligible*!

J: Look, I can’t… I don’t even know if that was a question or a declarative statement.

B: *unintelligible*!

J: I’m not joking, I can’t, I really cant understand anything you are saying. Nothing!

B: *unintelligible*

J: Have you been to the doctor lately? Because I think you may have a very severe case of throat cancer.

B: (raspy) I do not have throat cancer! (punches Joker) *unintelligible*!

J: There’s nothing in the English language that sounds anything like that.

B: *unintelligible*!

J: Are you speaking bat? Is that what bat sounds like?

B: (punches Joker) *unintelligible*

J: Oh, god.

B: *unintelligible*

J: I’d really, I’d really like to answer your questions! I just don’t know what they are.

B: (punches Joker) *unintelligible*

J: You are not speaking anything any human can understand. Am I crazy here?! Ok, I know I’m crazy!  But I know I can’t understand anything that you’re saying.  Come on, sound it out. Su… ta…

B: *unintelligible*!

J: Enunciate. Enun —

B: (punches Joker) *unintelligible*

J: Enunciate, do you know what that means? It’s not… It has nothing to do with physical contact.

B: *unintelligible*!

J: How do you even communicate with anybody?

B: *unintelligible*!

J: I can’t… There’s no words, coming out of his mouth, am I right?

B: (punches Joker)

J: There’s fists coming out…

B: *unintelligible*!

J: (imitating Batman) *unintelligible*! Do you see what it sounds like?!

B: *unintelligible*!

J: Just tell me if it’s a noun — a verb. Just give me something to work with, here. Write it down on a piece of paper. I don’t… I can’t understand what you’re saying!

B: (punches Joker)
