or, "turn the machines back on" from Trading Places
Not quite trading...but I think it characterizes a side of the industry well:
from BOILER ROOM:
"I read this article a while back, it said the Microsoft employs more millionaire secretaries than any other company in the world. they chose stock options over Christmas bonuses. It was a good move. I remember there was this photo of one of the groundskeepers standing next to his Ferrari. You see shit lke this, and you just can't see. Makes you think its possible even easy. And you turn on the TV and there's just more of it. The 87 million dollar lottery winner. That kid actor who just made 20 million on his last movie. The Internet stock that shot through the roof. You could have made millions off it if you just got in early. And that's exactly what I wanted to do. Get in. I didn't want to be an innovator. I just wanted to make the quick, easy buck. I just wanted in. The Notorious BIG put it best. "Your either slingin crack rock, or you got a wicked jump shot." Nobody wants to work for it anymore. There's no honor in taking that after-school job at Mickey-Dee's. The honor's in the dollar kid. So in the whiteboy way of slingin crack rock, I became a stockbroker."
A guy told me one time, 'Don't get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner'
Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro) in Heat
A great movie, by the way
Love that scene in Heat....I think it's the only movie where Pacino and DeNiro have been on screen together...(they were both in Godfather II, of course, but not on screen at the same time.)
