(Thracozaag @ June 07 2005,08:15) And since we're quoting some of my favorites from that movie: "Mr. Gekko...you're wife on line 2" *blows it off* "What else you got for me, pal?" "The key is capital reserves; without it you can't piss in the tall weeds with the big dogs" "Money never sleeps" "You need a friend? Get a dawg" "That's the one thing you have to remember about Wasps...they love animals, can't stand people" "Mixed emotions Buddy...like watching Larry Wildman drive off a cliff....in my new Maserati" "You got me into this mess, and you better get me out of it, otherwise the only job you'll have on this street is sweeping it" "What the hell is Cromwell doing giving lectures when his company is losing 25 mil a quarter? Probably talking about how to lose money. If he owned a funeral parlour no one would die. This turkey is totally brain dead. All right, Xmas is over, business is business, you dilute the sonuvabitch, Ollie, I want every orifice in his body flowing red." (as you can see I'm a big fan of this film)
Anyone else reminded of the scene in Boiler Room where the brokers are watching and quoting Wall Street? Great scene and great film that updates the broker image for the new millenium. Bradford
The guys in Boiler Room quoting Wall Street: Greg: "What's goin' on? I'm lookin' at 200,000 shares moved, pal. I wanna know if we're part of it? We'd better be, or I'm gonna come down and eat your lunch for ya. Back in two, Alex." Jim: "Look. I loved it at forty. Fifty? It's an insult. Their analysts? They don't know a preferred stock from livestock. They wait till it goes down, and like gumdrops and sperm counts..." Chris: "This is the kid. Calls me 59 days in a row. Wants to be a player. Oughta be a picture of you in the dictionary under 'Persistant', kid. Yeah? Now, listen, Jerry, I'm looking for negative control. Okay? No more than 30, 35 percent. Just enough to block anybody else's merger plans and find out from the inside if the books are cooked. Looks this good on paper, we're in the kill zone, pal. Lock and load. Lunch? Aw, You gotta be kidding. Lunch is for wimps. Okay, Fidel, I'll talk at you." Jon.
