Batman & Robin (1997)
Batgirl: Chicks like you give women a bad name.

Batman: And you are...?
Batgirl: Batgirl.
Batman: That's not very PC. What about Batwoman, or Batperson?
Batgirl: Bruce, it's me, Barbara. I found the Batcave.
Robin: We gotta get those locks changed.
Batman: She knows who we are.
Robin: I guess we'll just have to kill her.
Batman: Yep, we'll kill her later, we've got work to do.

Robin: Where's the snowman?
Batgirl: Maybe he melted.
Batman: No, he's just hibernating.

Batgirl: Damn.
Robin: Damn? Damn's not good.
Batgirl: Those targeting mirrors are frozen, the thawing beam won't work.

Robin: We'll have to do this upside-down.
Batgirl: Men, always doing things the hard way.

Robin: You're pretty good at this, little girl.
Batgirl: Well watch and learn, little boy.

Batgirl: [in the Batcave; Alfred's image is on a computer screen] Uncle Alfred, it's me, Barbara!
Alfred: I expected you might find your way down here. I programmed my brain al-algorithms into the Batcomputer to create a virtual simu-simulation.
Batgirl: I want to help Batman and Robin.
Alfred: I anticipated you would, and took the liberty to create something in your size.
Batgirl: Suit me up, Uncle Alfred!

Batgirl: [to Poison Ivy] Using feminine wiles to get what you want? Trading on your looks? Read a book, sister. That passive-aggressive number went out years ago.


"Batgirl: Spoiled: Little Lost (Bat)Girl (#1.2)" (2013)
[first lines]
Batgirl: I was pursuing a criminal. That's what Batgirl does.
Oracle: Batgirl arrived like she was invincible.
Batgirl: I didn't think I was invincible.

Batgirl: You weren't there. Batman wasn't there. You-you don't even know what happened!
Oracle: Then what *did* happen?

Catwoman: You're brave, kid, but you need to learn to choose your battles.
Batgirl: I don't know if I would you use the word "choose".
Harley Quinn: Then you shoulda run.
Batgirl: Not my style.
Catwoman: Is being dead your style?
Batgirl: I don't know. I've already died once - it didn't stop me.

Batman: These thugs are a new gang with ties higher up the food chain. I haven't determined who's funding them, but they've been recruiting heavily in this area. Their iconography appears to be Lovecraftian.
Batgirl: Fascinating. I'll be sure to put it in my "Gangs I Have Known" scrapbook.

Batman: She also said that Harley Quinn and Catwoman were sighted in the area.
Batgirl: They dropped into the dance, yeah.
Batman: They don't do anything they don't benefit from and they're criminals.
Batgirl: That didn't seem to come up when they were saving my life. If they hadn't been here...
Batman: Stay clear of them!
Batgirl: Stay clear of them? Did you just miss the point where I said they saved my life?
Batman: If you were more careful, you wouldn't need saving! Stay clear of them!

Batgirl: You think you can run my life?
Batman: [pointing to the Bat symbol on her chest] As long as you wear this symbol, you follow *my* lead. If I say stay clear of someone, you do it!
Batgirl: Fine. Maybe I don't want to wear it anymore.
Batman: You never understood what that symbol means and you don't have the discipline to do what we do. Feel free to hang it up whenever you like.


"Batgirl: Spoiled: Blindside (#1.1)" (2012)
[first lines]
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: [whining] How long is this going to take?
Oracle: It takes as long as it takes, Steph. This is a stakeout - it's not supposed to be fun.
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: I was told stakeouts had donuts.
Oracle: Any sign of him yet?
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: Nope, nothing. Just an empty street. I'm cold, I don't have any donuts and I'm rapidly getting over this assignment.
Oracle: We both know that suit's insolated, so stop your yapping.

[Batgirl spots a couple of thugs trying to break into a car]
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: Hey, hold on a second. This night might not be a total waste. Looks like I get to kick somebody in the face after all.
Oracle: Be careful!
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: Yes yes. Careful Batgirl. I know.

[Batgirl rams the head of one crook through a car window and turns to confront the second]
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: I'm going to the tell the cops that you did this.

[Batgirl is about to chase the second car thief into a warehouse]
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: It's time to make the donuts.
Oracle: Again with the donuts?
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: Lay off me. I'm hungry.

Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: Come out, come out, wherever you are.
[a dozen thugs materialize from the shadows]
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: Oh, I'm sorry. What I meant was, "Come out, the one thug I was chasing." The rest of you should probably go home.

[Batgirl throws her Bat-a-Rang at a perp but misses the target]
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: Well, shit!
Oracle: Did you just miss again?
Batgirl/Stephanie Brown: Shut up. Yes. Shut up!


Batman: Vengeance (2001) (VG)
Batman: Any evidence that Mary could come up with five million dollars?
Batgirl: No way. That's insane.
Batman: Joker's insane. But not stupid. He must know something about Mary we don't.

Batgirl: Where are you going?
Batman: Funnybones Warehouse.
Batgirl: What are you looking for?
Batman: I don't know.
Batgirl: Every cop in the city is looking for you...
Batman: The police are looking for Batman. He's not going.

Batgirl: Did you find anything?
Batman: All I know is that the Joker's not dead, and if we don't find him soon, he'll be the only one in Gotham who's not.

Batgirl: I've managed to find the tracking device you gave to Harley when she was wrapped up in her Mary act. Somebody's tagged it on the Mayor, and I just saw him give some big heavy in a trench coat a huge case of money.
Batman: The Mayor? What's he buying?
Batgirl: I don't know... Wait. Trench coat's just got on a north-bound El-Train. I'm tailing him...
[Silence]
Batgirl: Oh-NO! Batman, I need back-up - NOW! They - They're not even human...!

Batman: Any news about Harley?
Batgirl: None. She hasn't come out of Funnybone's warehouse since that night on Gotham Bridge. She's acting as though the Joker's really... dead.

Batgirl: He was working on some kind of miracle drug called Prometheum. But he lost federal funding. They said Prometheum was too unstable.
Batman: Unstable? How?
Batgirl: I'm not sure, but unstable enough to cause the government to cut funding for his research. This is where it gets interesting. After that, every increase in Evers' bank account was preceded by a major bank-job by the Joker.
Batman: Joker was funding Evers' research?
Batgirl: He's done stranger things.
Batman: Not without a punchline. Keep me posted.


"Batman: The Ogg Couple (#3.15)" (1967)
Egghead: Oh, protect me, Batgirl. That monster is going to shoot me.
Batgirl: You're not so brave when your henchmen aren't around, are you, Egghead?
Egghead: Oh, I never claimed to be brave, Batgirl. No, I'm, I'm clever and crafty but I'm a complete coward.

Egghead: Oh, please, you can't ask me to rat on my friends.
Batgirl: Oh, yes I can, and you'd better start ratting fast.
Egghead: Do you eggspect me, a, a, a respected arch-criminal to, to fink on my friends like a, like a common stool pigeon?
Batgirl: Of course.
Egghead: Alright, I'll do it.

Batgirl: The ambush is on the other foot now, Egghead.

Batgirl: [all tied up and unable to join in the fight] Give 'em one from me, Batman!

Batgirl: [unable to escape from a vat of caviar] Help, Batman! I'm drowning.
[goes under]
Batgirl: I'm also freezing!
Batman: Batgirl is being frozen in that caviar!

Batgirl: They almost turned me into a human au dóeuvre. What a chilling way to die.
Robin: Holy cold creeps! Leave it to crooks like them to think of a trick like this!
Batman: Yes, that's to be expected, Robin. The concept of decency is alien to the criminal mind.


"Batman: The Wail of the Siren (#3.3)" (1967)
Robin: Come on, Batgirl.
Batgirl: But there must be some...
Robin: We're licked!

Batgirl: Perhaps then you would have had the strength to resist the Siren's stunning spell.

Batgirl: Like it or not, we're all you've got.

Detective Harvey Bullock: So she smoked ya.
Supergirl: We put up a fight.
Detective Harvey Bullock: And lost. I never thought I'd hear myself saying this, but where's the Bat?
Batgirl: We're handling this.
Detective Harvey Bullock: Oh, that's reassuring.
Batgirl: Don't let that doughnut dunker get to you. We're gonna have this whole thing sewn up before Batman and Superman get back.
Supergirl: Sure. How hard can it be? Two against one, right?
Batgirl: Right!


"Batman: The Unkindest Tut of All (#3.6)" (1967)
Batman: So it was you who blazed the trail.
Batgirl: I was just doing my duty as a citizen.
Batman: I like that kind of talk. Perhaps we could, eh, get together some evening and discuss crimefighting techniques?
Batgirl: No one knows where you live.
Batman: Yes, that does constitute some problem...

Batman: [referring to Batgirl] I wonder who she really is.
Batgirl: [referring to Batman] I wonder who he really is.


"Batman: Catwoman's Dressed to Kill (#3.14)" (1967)
Catwoman: No hero worth his salt would let a lady expire. It's foolproof I tell you - purrrfectly foolproof.

Catwoman: Angora, gag her! Crimefighters should be seen and not heard.

[Alfred, disguised as the worlds oldest hippie, rescues Batgirl from being sawn to bits]
Batgirl: Thank you, whoever you are.

Batgirl: [Batgirl appears] And what about me, do you have my number, too?
Dr. Cassandra: Other women's numbers don't interest me, Batgirl.

[whips it out]

Batgirl: It worked!
Batman: Yes, there's more to old Indian Fakir tricks than one might suspect.
Batgirl: And concentration, magnified by the power of yoga?
Batman: Yes, yes, that's enough talking Batgirl. Up you go.


"The New Batman Adventures: You Scratch My Back (#1.5)" (1997)
Nightwing: What are you doing here?
Batgirl: Pre-dawn, the dockyards, where else would a person in a mask be?

Chief O'Hara: Batgirl!
[walks over to her]

Chief O'Hara: Not only in Gotham City but in this office. The Commissioner's been kidnapped.
Batgirl: Kidnapped! My fa- Commissioner Gordon kidnapped?

Batgirl: My father uses a very rare brand of aftershave lotion called Wellington no 4. It's imported from Sumatra.
Alfred: I know the brand. A former employer of mine, the Earl of Chutney used to use it. If I remember correctly, it's ingredients contain a small amount of curryroot. Which gives it a very pungent aroma, quite unlike any other aftershave lotion.
Batgirl: Yes, the aroma is unmistakable.


"The Batman: The Breakout (#4.6)" (2006)
Robin: Wonder what Batman will have us on next.
Robin: [Imitating Batman] I have an important mission for you two. The bat-mobile must be washed. Two coats of wax this time.

Batgirl: Batman. Figures.
Robin: No wonder you always take point. You're good.
Bruce Wayne: And you guys are pretty good at grunt work. Now who wants to wash the bat-mobile?

Batgirl: [grabs onto the chandelier the Riddler holds onto after he orders his men to seize her and uses it to propel herself out the window after them] Thanks for the lift!

"Batman: Nora Clavicle and the Ladies' Crime Club (#3.19)" (1968)
Robin: You mean back to the Batcomputer in the Batcave, Batman?

Batman: It wasn't my place to tell you.
Robin (Dick Grayson): But it was your place to put her in danger.
Batgirl: It wasn't like that. I volunteered!

Olga, Queen of the Cossacks: Does not sound like Badushka I know, huh.

Mr. Freeze: Ironic, isn't it? After all I did to keep my wife whole, I end up like this. You understand now why I could not return to my Nora, my treasure. There's no hope for me, or you or your city. Everyone's going to feel my loss.
