Tourist Dad: I'm sorry, this is my cab.
Tourist Dad: Listen, I was here first!

As the Joker goes up the steps out of the clinic, he goes through a lighted area and his face is flesh toned and not made up.
The opening credits appear as the camera goes through/around a giant Batman symbol.
The original (non Special-Edition version) Region-1 DVD actually contains two different versions of the film. The fullscreen version is the theatrical version, the widescreen version has one brief shot replaced. It is a small scene near the end at 1:54:06 just before Batman fights the Joker in the Clocktower. In the fullscreen version Vicki Vale gets a disgusted look when she kisses the Jokers jacket and pulls a lint out of her mouth, however in the widescreen version she really seems to like it.
