    "The millionaire is a predator, a corporate raider, a Wall Street shark. His name is Gordon Gekko, the name no doubt inspired by the lizard that feeds on insects and sheds its tail when trapped." - Roger Ebert

  3. Carl Fox: Stop going for the easy buck and start producing something with your life. Create, instead of living off the buying and selling of others.

    Gekko: The richest one percent of this country owns half our country's wealth, five trillion dollars. One third of that comes from hard work, two thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons and what I do, stock and real estate speculation. It's bullshit. You got ninety percent of the American public out there with little or no net worth. I create nothing. I own.

    Gekko: You're walking around blind without a cane pal. A fool and his money are lucky enough to get together in the first place.

    Bud: How much is enough? Gekko: It's not a question of enough, pal. It's a zero sum game, somebody wins, somebody loses. Money itself isn't lost or gained its simple transferred from one perception to another.

    Gordon Gekko: Mixed emotions, pal. Like seeing Larry Wildmon going off a cliff in my new Maserati.

    Bud Fox: If your enemy is superior, evade him. If angry, iritate. If equally matched, fight, and if not split and reevaluate.

    Gekko: Every battle is won before it is ever fought. Sun-tzu, The Art of War.

    Lou: A man looks in the abyss, there is nothing staring back at him. At that moment he discovers his character. That keeps the man out of the abyss.

    Lou: The main thing about money, Bud, is that it makes you do things you don't want to do.

    Bud: If you step out that door, I'm changing the locks.

    Bud Fox: Life all comes down to a few moments. This is one of them.

    Gordon Gekko: If somthing's worth doing it's worth doing for money.

    Gekko: I'm gonna make you rich, Bud Fox.

    Gekko: I'm talking liquid. Enough money to have your own jet. Enough money not to waste time. Fifty, one hundred million dollars. A player.

    Gekko: I don't throw darts. I bet on sure things.

    Gekko: If you need a friend, get a dog.

    Gekko: Greed - you mark my words - will save Teldar, and that other malfunctioning corporation, the U.S.A.

    Gekko: I know of no more valuable commodity than information.

    Gekko: Greed captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

    Gekko: I look at a hundred deals a day. I pick one.

    Gordon Gekko: You see that building over there? I bought it three years ago. My first real estate transaction. I sold it ten months later and made $800,000 profit. It was better than sex. At the time it was all the money in the world. Now it's a day's pay.

    Bud Fox: Why do you need to wreck this company? Gordon Gecco: Because it's wreckable, all right?

    Gordon Gekko: The point is, ladies and gentlemen, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works.

    Gekko: Buddy...where the hell have you been? You got me into this dog shit stock and you better get me out of it! Bud: Gordon, the bid is 16 1/2 and falling. As your broker, I advise you to sell.

    Lou Mannheim: "Man looks in the abyss, there's nothing staring back at him. At that moment, man finds his character. And that is what keeps him out of the abyss.

    Gekko: "Lunch is for wimps."
