The Joker may be the most articulate & quotable supervillian.

My favorite--

Joker: Whoops! Ha! I guess the joke's on me. You're not Batman after all. Looks like there's a new face in Gotham and soon his name will be all over town... to say nothing of his legs, and feet, and spleen, and head...

Post your favorite Joker quote here.

Maybe my favorite might be kinda odd ...

"WHERE?" -- after a man in the Gotham copyright office says, "Good Lord!" after he enters his office (The Laughing Fish story from Detective Comics #475).

Played by Jack Nicholson:

"Never rub another man's rhubarb."

From IIRC the cover of The Killing Joke: "Smile."

said to Barbara Gordon as he takes her picture after he's shot her in the spine, to send to her father to drive him insane

It's not the quote itself that gets me, but I love that at the end of No Man's Land when Gordon shoots him, he gets the joke -- "What? Oh! Just like your daughter! HAHAHAHAHA!!!"

From Killing Joke - "There is no sanity clause."

From a Superman story where's he's got all of Supe's friend held hostage in his office, and his secretary calls him on the loudspeaker. "Mrs. Cavendish? How many times have I told you never to interrupt me while I'm gloating?"

From the Laughing Fish story previously mentioned - He's doing one of his monomaniacal rants about how anybody who eats fish will have to pay him a copyright fee because he put a chemical in the water that makes all fish look like him. Then he gets a serious look on his face and says "But what if everyone in the world stops eating fish? I hadn't thought of that!" Then he laughs again and says "I'll just use my chemical on the cattle. Then we'll have Joker Burgers! HAHAHAHAHAHA!"

From a JLA story, where Joker has stolen a tank, but the gun jammed as the JLA faced him down. "I wanna go back to Arkham!!!" Then Batman arrives in his Batmobile, sees the Joker dressed up in his military general outfit, decides he doesn't have time for this, and speeds off. Joker runs after him screamling "SAVE ME MY DARK KNIGHT IN NOT-SO-SHINY ARMOR! SAVE MEEEEEEEEE!!!"
