|Harvey was devastated after Rachel's death. He kidnapped Gordon's wife and two kids. In the scene where he met Gordon, he said that he was going to let Gordon feel what he had felt when Rachel died. Harvey grabbed one of Gordon's kids and threatened to kill him. Did the kid die in the end?
||The Dark Knight
No. Batman showed up and told Harvey to stop. He said Harvey should not blame Gordon for Rachel's death. Harvey said he would leave it to the coin to decide. The first coin landed on tails and Harvey shot Bruce. As he flipped the next coin to determine the kid's fate, Bruce got up and pushed him out of the window. Gordon's son was safe but Harvey died.
|By using the sonar idea of Lucius Fox, Bruce transformed the citizen's cell phones into detecting and monitoring devices, to find out the Joker's location. Bruce said that if the Joker talked within the vicinity of a phone, Lucius could triangulate his location. Bruce said this great task could only be done by one person, who was Lucius himself. According to Bruce, what words should Lucius type in after he finished using the system?||The Dark Knight
"Lucius Fox". Lucius first thought that it was an insane idea to use the citizens' cell phones to monitor the Joker. Bruce convinced him, by telling him that a great task like this should only be done by Lucius himself. Lucius agreed. Lucius was also being told that he should type in his own name after he detected the location of the Joker to shut down the system.
|The Joker carried out his next plan, where he forced two ferries to leave Gotham. One of them carried prisoners while the other one carried innocent citizens. The Joker said he was going to conduct a social experiment that night. Every person on both of the ferries had the chance to detonate the other ferry. They were given the time until midnight. If none of them made the move, then both of the ferries would explode. All the people on both ferries faced the dilemma and did not dare to kill off all the passengers in the other ferry. In the end, which ferry exploded?||The Dark Knight
Both ferries were safe.. On the ferry with prisoners, one of the prisoners asked for the detonator from the policeman. All the people on that ferry thought that he was going to blow up the other ferry with innocent citizens but, upon getting the detonator, he threw it into the sea.
Meanwhile, on the ferry with innocent citizens, they conducted a poll and the majority chose to detonate the other ferry with prisoners on it. However, nobody came forward to detonate the bomb. Finally, a man stood up and said he would do it. Fortunately, he changed his bad idea at the last moment because nothing happened when the clock struck midnight. Both ferries were safe.
The Joker was battling with Batman and the former told the latter that they were going to watch a great firework display. The people on the ferries proved that the Joker was wrong.
|The Joker told Bruce that he had kidnapped both Harvey and Rachel and had them placed in two different locations. It was up to Bruce now to determine who he should save. Bruce chose Rachel but when he opened the door he found that it was actually Harvey who was behind the door. Bruce saved Harvey but the latter's face was burnt. He woke up in the hospital and he was approached by the Joker, who was dressed up as a nurse. What nickname did Harvey call himself?||The Dark Knight
Two-Face. When Harvey was still new as an attorney, he was called "two-face" by the others. Now, waking up in the hospital bed with his left face burnt from the explosion, it reminded him of this nickname. The Joker manipulated him and turned him from a good attorney into an evil person.
|The Joker was eventually apprehended by the policemen, after the chase scene between the Joker and the Batman. What thing did the Joker put inside his cell mate's stomach, which he later used to help him escape from the prison?||The Dark Knight
A cell phone. The Joker's cell mate kept complaining that his stomach hurt but nobody paid attention to him, until the last minute when the correctional officers called in the paramedic team, only to find out that there was a cell phone in the man's stomach. It was too late for them because the Joker had made a call which detonated the bomb. The entire prison blew up after the Joker grabbed Lau and escaped.
It was the Joker's plan to implant the cell phone in that man's stomach earlier on and he deliberately wanted to get caught by the policemen so that he could end up in the same prison to blow up the place.
The soundtrack for the movie was composed by Hans Zimmer, who was also the music composer for "Gladiator".

Harvey. Just as Bruce was about to reveal his true identity, Harvey announced that he was Batman. He was handcuffed and taken away. Harvey told Rachel that it was his own idea to do that, so that the real Batman would come and save him. However, Rachel thought that the idea was too risky and dangerous.

|The Joker told the public that he would start killing innocent people until Batman revealed his true identity. Batman figured out that the Joker's next target was Anthony Garcia, the mayor. During that intense moment, Gordon dived in front and saved Anthony. In the midst of the panic scene, the police managed to capture one of the men. While Harvey Dent interrogated that man, whose name did he see on that man's uniform's name-tag? ||The Dark Knight
Rachel Dawes. The man who was captured by the police was one of the men who were responsible for the plan to kill the mayor. Several men who were supposed to be in the parade were kidnapped and tied up. Their uniforms were taken. Harvey Dent, who was the Gotham district attorney, later interrogated that man in a truck. It was at that time when he noticed that the name-tag on that man's uniform bore the name of his girlfriend, Rachel Dawes. He quickly called Rachel to warn her about the dangerous situation.
Mayor Anthony Garcia was played by Nestor Carbonell, who played the character of Richard Alpert in "Lost".

He confronts Lucius with his suspicions and demands ten million dollars a year for the rest of his life. Lucius responds with the above quote, which apparently makes Reese change his mind.

|At the beginning of the movie we find a bunch of criminals in clown masks, led by the Joker, robbing a bank. Who owns the bank?||The Dark Knight
the mob. The first indication we get that this is not a regular bank comes from the clown monitoring the silent alarm. Just before he is killed, by an accomplice, he comments that the call he interrupts has not been made to the police. Later the bank manager, before being shot, confronts the clowns and asks them if they know who they are robbing. Afterwards we learn, through various conversations, that the bank is indeed owned by the mob, so reprisals are expected to be harsh.

It was a custom. After Joker was arrested they did a normal search of his person. One of the officers reported their findings to Gordon by telling him that Joker had "No name, no other alias, clothing is custom, nothing in his pockets but knives and lint..."
Earlier in the movie, while talking to the mob Joker mentioned that "The suit wasn't cheap, you outta know ....you bought it." This was in retaliation to Maroni's remark "Just some freak clown in a cheap purple suit". He mentioned the "clown" when Lau (who was on the TV monitor) gave the mob the news that a portion of their money had been stolen from the bank.
