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 'Persistence', kid.
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. If it looks as good as on paper, we're in the kill zone, pal. Lock and load.
Lunch? Aw, You gotta be kidding. Lunch is for wimps.
What else you got besides connections at the airport?
It's not bad for a quant, but that's a dog with different fleas.
Come on pal, tell me something I don't know, it's my birthday. Surprise me.
Bud Fox, I look at a hundred deals a day. I choose one.
Alright Bud Fox, I want you to buy 20,000 shares of Bluestar, at 15 1/8, 3/8 tops. Don't screw it up, sport. Think you can handle that?
Relax pal, no one's gonna blow the whistle on ya. Is that legal? You should put that in my account.
Buy a decent suit. You can't come in here looking like this. Go to Morty Sills, tell 'em I sent ya.
Save the cheap salesman talk, will ya, it's obvious.
I don't like losses, sport. Nothing ruins my day more than losses. Now you do good, you get perks, lots and lots of perks.
Bought my way in, now all these Ivy League schmucks are suckin' my kneecaps.
That's the thing you gotta remember about WASPs - they love animals, they can't stand people.
The most valuable commodity I know of, is information
The public's out there throwin' darts at a board, sport. I don't throw darts at a board - I bet on sure things.
Every battle is won before it's ever fought. Think about it.
You ever wonder why fund managers can't beat the S&P 500? Because they're sheep, and sheep get slaughtered.
Most of these Harvard MBA types - they don't add up to dogshit. Give me guys that are poor, smart, hungry - and no feelings. when you feel, you lose a few, but you keep on fighting.
And if you need a friend, get a dog. It's trench warfare out there pal.
You want another chance? You stop sending me information, and start getting me some.
You see that building? I bought that building ten years ago. My first real estate deal. Sold it 2 years later, made an 800,000 dollar profit. It was better than sex. At the time, I thought that was all the money in the world; now it's a day's pay.
I'm afraid pal, unless your father is on the board of directors of another company, you and I are going to have a very tough time doing business together.
You work hard? I'll bet you stayed up all night analyzing that dogshit stock you gave me, huh? where'd it get you? My father, he worked like an elephant pushing electrical supplies and he dropped dead at 49 with a heart attack and tax bills.
