I also think it's interesting that Daggett and Alfred mentioned Bane working in W. Africa as a merc so to speak, I wonder what his business was there? Remember this from TDK?
The Barsad reference in the novelization reads: "[Bane] turned to his lieutenant, Barsad. The loyal soldier had fought beside him in so many conflicts over the years, all around the world. He owed Bane his life a dozen times over."
In W. Africa he was involved in a coup that secured a mining operation for Daggett.

What I particularly loved about that moment was when we see the "replay" in the Bat Cave where Alfred is telling Bruce to look at how Bane fights, "his speed, his training, his ferocity." Love that whole description/warning by Alfred. Oh, and then there is Bane's hilarious/throw-away "Thank you," to the person clutching his helmet when he's getting ready to leave the Stock Exchange.

I love that everyone also noticed all the little things he did with both Bane's voice (slight inflections) and body movements (bouncing up and down during his speech). Every time I watch this movie, I notice something new about his performance. I too quote the shit out of Bane that I annoy the hell out of my gf. His performance was nothing short of masterful!
I know! I drive everyone nuts, too! I even used Bane's prison monologue to Bruce as a parody to describe where I work, i.e. "There's a reason why this hospital is the worst hell on earth: hope." etc.
