Between the movie, script, and other unreliable sources, the wording is off on all of them. I would like the most

"And why do we fall, sir? So that we might learn to pick ourselves up"

"Why do we fall sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up."

The wording is important to me and I would like some input on which you believe is the "most correct quote" Thanks

What? I feel like ive taken crazy pills - no offense. Its a common saying, the exact wording is relatively unimportant. Its the sentiment the saying is attempting to convey which is important. Its the equivalent of, what happens when you fall off the horse? Yous get back on and try again

I think the 'most correct' one would be the final choice; the line that appeared in the film. Which

Why do we fall, sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.

You are watching: Why do we fall master wayne

Also, just for kicks, Thomas Wayne's version:

And why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

Link two. Link one.


Alfreds version ("might learn to pick ourselves up") implies that not everyone tries again when they fall. In BB he learned to pick himself up when Ras took him down physically. In TDK Joker took him down mentally AND emotionally. Unlike in BB however he didnt actually recover from it and instead forced himself to ignore it until the very end. Then in TDKR, after eight years of isolation, he slowly tries to be batman again but still hasnt "picked himself up" because he hasnt let go of rachel dawes yet even though almost a decade has passed.


Well I like more when Thomas Wayne says it rather than Alfred and when he says it he doesn't say sir.

I'm not 100% sure but...

Thomas Wayne's version is "And why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up"

Alfred's version is "Why do we fall sir? So that we might learn to pick ourselves up."

I prefer the Thomas Wayne version.

Where exactly did you get these quotes?

Thomas says "And why do we fall Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up" in Batman Begins

Alfred says "Why do we fall sir? So we can learn to pick ourselves up"

The differences of might and Bruce are irking me
