- Excuse me!|
|00:02:40||Good morning. Jackson Steinem.|
|00:02:42||- How you doing, Buddy?
- Great, Carolyn.|
|00:02:45||Doing any better would be a sin.|
|00:02:59||Morning, Dan. What's looking good today?|
|00:03:01||If I knew, I wouldn't be in this business.
Get out while you're young.|
|00:03:05||I came here one day, I sat down,
and look at me now.|
|00:03:09||Look at you now.|
|00:03:15||- Chuckie! How's the woman slayer?
- Looking for an 18-year-old wife.|
|00:03:19||- How you doing, pal?
- Well, if I had your looks, better.|
|00:03:22||Takes years of genetics,
a Yale education and the right tailor.|
|00:03:25||Not that you learned anything, Chunk.|
|00:03:30||Marv, I got a feeling that we
are gonna make a killing today.|
|00:03:34||Yeah? Where's your machine gun?|
|00:03:36||You can't make a buck in this market.|
|00:03:38||The country's going to hell faster
than when Roosevelt was in charge!|
|00:03:42||Too much cheap money
sloshing around the world.|
|00:03:45||Worst mistake we ever made was
letting Nixon get off the gold standard.|
|00:03:49||Putney Drug-you boys
might wanna look at it.|
|00:03:52||- No. They'll take five years to come around.
- But they got a good new drug.|
|00:03:56||Stick to the fundamentals.
That's how IBM and Hilton were built.|
|00:04:00||Good things sometimes take time.|
|00:04:03||Look sharp, especially you rookies.
Nikkei Index closed up 90 points last night.|
|00:04:08||We expect heavy Japanese buying
on the opening.|
|00:04:11||The firm has 200,000 steel for sale.
A million Big Blue. 350,000 pork and beans.|
|00:04:16||Get on the horn with your institutions.
These utilities are our top priority today.|
|00:04:21||- OK. Let's go to work.
- And they're off and running!|
|00:04:41||We cleared up to 60,000 XGC at 481/2.
Yes, that's right. Right.|
|00:04:52||- The market just doubled.
|00:04:55||Research has put thrifts
on the recommended.|
|00:04:58||What? Dump it for chrissake!|
|00:05:01||30,000. Three-eight top.
I go along at 23. You got it.|
|00:05:06||Now you own it!
Conwest Air? Let me check it.|
|00:05:15||Circle 29,000 Niagaras for Templeton.|
|00:05:17||Mr Harrison, are you aware that we are
in the biggest bull market of our generation?|
|00:05:23||No, sir, it's not what you think.
If you take five minutes of your time...|
|00:05:28||Dreyfus is looking for 50,000 Conair!|
|00:05:30||September 50s? How about Decembers?|
|00:05:33||Mr Zaros? Bud Fox, Jackson Steinem.|
|00:05:35||Yes, sir, I am aware of that.|
|00:05:37||But if I could have five minutes
to explain the opportunities emerging...|
|00:05:41||...in the international debt market.|
|00:05:44||Bud Fox, Jackson Steinem.|
|00:05:46||Yes, I am aware of this. But if I could just
explain the opportunities emerging...|
|00:05:52||...in the international debt market...|
|00:05:55||I'm sure that...|
|00:06:05||Yesterday concerns my future.
I need the info now, before the close.|
|00:06:09||No, in ten minutes it's history.
At four I'm a dinosaur!|
|00:06:13||Howard, I thought you were a gentleman.
Sure it's gone down. You got the tip. I didn't.|
|00:06:18||- Why would I tell you to sell it?
- Give it back!|
|00:06:21||To who? I can't give it back-you own it!|
|00:06:24||No, he's not here.|
|00:06:26||- That's what you told us to say.
- Gimme that phone.|
|00:06:31||- Who am I talking to?
- The sales manager. What's the problem?|
|00:06:35||What? Will you gimme a break? How was
I supposed to know you were in surgery?|
|00:06:39||What am I - Marvin the Mindreader?!|
|00:06:42||Uh, no, sir. I'll discuss that with the
account executive, and I'll get back to you.|
|00:06:47||No, no, sir. You're welcome.|
|00:06:53||I'm closing the account.
If he doesn't pay tomorrow, you pay.|
|00:06:57||Mr Lynch, I swear to you, he's lying.|
|00:06:59||We give you a rich man's account...|
|00:07:01||...and you tell me he's gonna DK you
for a lousy quarter point?|
|00:07:05||You're being unfair, sir.
You know he's got a history for bullshit.|
|00:07:09||Somebody's got to pay.|
|00:07:12||Ain't gonna be me.|
A little trouble, huh, today, Buddy?|
|00:07:20||Howard the jerk reneged on me. I gotta
cover his losses to the tune of seven grand.|
|00:07:25||Yeah! I'm holding!|
|00:07:26||I'm tapped out. American Express
got a hit man looking for me.|
|00:07:30||It coulda been worse, right?
Coulda been my money.|
|00:07:36||Here, here, rookie, let me help you out.
I got... a C-note.|
|00:07:42||- Thanks, Marv. I'll make it up to you.
- Yes, I am still here!|
|00:07:46||You know what my dream is?
To one day be on the other end of that phone.|
|00:07:51||Oh, you got it, baby.
Where the real cheesecake is.|
|00:07:55||Hey, Bud, you forgetting something?|
|00:07:57||The Gekko phone call?|
|00:08:00||When are you gonna realise it's the big game
hunters who bag elephants, not guys like us.|
|00:08:05||- Gordon Gekko, please.
- Gekko's beautiful.|
|00:08:07||30 seconds after the Challenger blew up,
he's selling NASA stock short.|
|00:08:11||Yeah, but... 47 million he made
on the Melcore deal.|
|00:08:15||23 on the Imperial deal before he was 40.|
|00:08:18||The guy makes 20 times what Dave Winfield
makes in a year, and he talks to everybody.|
|00:08:24||And he had an ethical bypass at birth.|
|00:08:26||- Hello, Natalie. Guess who?
- Mr Fox.|
|00:08:28||Right. Every day I say to myself that today
could be the day. So will you marry me?|
|00:08:35||- I'll think about it.
- Then can you get me through to Mr Gekko?|
|00:08:39||- He's very busy.
- Of course he is. Five minutes is all I ask.|
|00:08:43||Mr Fox, I'm sure you're a good broker,
but our traders deal with the brokers.|
|00:08:49||Mr Gekko deals with investment bankers.|
|00:08:51||- Tell him I called. There are big changes...
- Yes, I'll give him your message.|
|00:08:55||Leo, I understand, but you have to realise
there'll be major subordinated debt involved.|
|00:09:16||- Buddy, how ya doing?
- Great, Charlie. Any better would be a sin.|
|00:09:19||Jesus Christ! Listen, I hear all you guys
on Wall Street are millionaires.|
|00:09:24||- When you gonna make us all rich?
- You need an account to win the lottery.|
|00:09:29||- Give me 50 grand. I'll get you a condo.
- Sure! We'll own the airline by then!|
|00:09:33||Why don't he make himself rich,
so he can pay off his school loans?|
|00:09:38||Nice to see you're in such a good mood, Dad.
Did Mom give you fish for dinner?|
|00:09:42||You smoke too much. How often you
gotta go to the hospital to realise?|
|00:09:45||Leave me alone. It's the only thing that
makes me feel good. There, Frank. All set.|
Your mother still makes lousy spaghetti.|
|00:09:54||- It's pasta now. Spaghetti's out of date.
- So am I. You want a beer?|
|00:09:59||Billie! Bring a Molson Lite for the kid!|
|00:10:03||- Looking good, huh?
- He looks terrific.|
|00:10:05||Carl, we'll be at the bar.|
|00:10:09||- I'll catch up with you.
- All right, Charlie.|
|00:10:16||You look like you've grown another inch,
but you don't look so hot, Buddy.|
|00:10:21||- You're gonna get bags under your eyes.
- Yeah, I had a tough day.|
|00:10:25||- Some jerk DK'd me. I gotta cover his loss.
- Speak English.|
|00:10:29||DK: Didn't Know who I was
when the options he bought took a bath.|
|00:10:32||- Bastard reneged on me!
- I told you not to get into that racket.|
|00:10:36||You coulda been a doctor or a lawyer.|
|00:10:38||If you'd stayed at Bluestar, you coulda been a
supervisor now, instead of being a salesman.|
|00:10:44||Dad, how many times I gotta tell you I am not
a salesman? I'm an account executive.|
|00:10:49||Soon I'm moving into investment banking.|
|00:10:51||You ask strangers for money -
you're a salesman.|
|00:10:55||Dad, it takes time.
You gotta build a client list.|
|00:10:58||I can make more money in one year
as a broker than in five at this airline.|
|00:11:02||Thank you, Billie.|
|00:11:04||I don't get it, kid. You borrow money to go
to NYU. First year out, you make 35 grand.|
|00:11:09||You made 50 grand last year, and can't
pay off your loans. Where does it go?!|
|00:11:13||Dad, 50K does not get you
to first base in the Big Apple.|
|00:11:17||I got 40% in taxes, 15 grand for rent.|
|00:11:19||I got school loans, car loans, food -
that's three bills a month. I need suits...|
|00:11:24||Come back home and live rent-free
instead of that roach-infected place.|
|00:11:28||$50,000! Jesus Christ!
The whole world's off its rocker!|
|00:11:32||I made $47,000 last year. That's before taxes.|
|00:11:36||That's Queens, Dad! A 5% mortgage
and you rent the top room.|
|00:11:39||I gotta live in Manhattan to be a player.
There is no nobility in poverty any more, Dad.|
|00:11:45||One day you'll be proud of me. You'll see.|
|00:11:49||It's yourself you gotta
be proud of, Huckleberry.|
|00:11:53||How much you need?|
|00:11:55||Can you spare 300?
I'll pay you back next month, I promise.|
|00:11:59||- I don't know if I got that much on me.
- Not in here. Please.|
|00:12:05||It adds up. 300 here, 200 there.
|00:12:08||I always say money's something you need
in case you don't die tomorrow. Right, Carl?|
|00:12:13||How you doing?|
|00:12:15||- How's work treating you?
- Damn mandatory drug test.|
|00:12:19||They're driving us crazy. I got flagged for my
blood pressure pills. Can you believe that?|
|00:12:24||The good news is we had a meeting with
the controller about some union business.|
|00:12:29||Remember the accident last year
and the investigation?|
|00:12:32||The FAA is gonna rule it was a manufacturing
error in the door-latch mechanism. I knew it.|
|00:12:38||I kept telling 'em it wasn't maintenance.
It's the greedy manufacturers in Cincinnati.|
|00:12:43||- That's great.
- This gets us out from under suspension.|
|00:12:46||We can go for those new routes to Pittsburgh
and Boston. We'll compete with the big guys.|
|00:12:52||To Bluestar. As your broker, all I can
advise is you hold on to that stock.|
|00:12:57||What stock? Are you kiddin'?|
|00:13:00||- Are you sure about this thing?
|00:13:04||- The FAA announcement.
- Sure I'm sure.|
|00:13:09||Look at me. You got that
mischievous look in your eye, Buddy.|
|00:13:14||You used to smile like that
when you were a kid sleeping.|
|00:13:17||It's true. Just like that.|
|00:14:11||Delivery for Mr Gekko. It's a personal item.
He needs you to sign for it.|
|00:14:15||Send him in.|
|00:14:30||Hello, Natalie. Recognise the voice? Here's
a hint-you're thinking about marrying me.|
|00:14:36||- Why are you here?
- You're lovelier than I pictured.|
|00:14:39||- Got a birthday present for Mr Gekko.
- You can't come barging in here.|
|00:14:43||- What makes you think it's his birthday?
- Well, it's in the bible, see?|
|00:14:48||You better go buy him a gift.|
|00:14:50||Please, Natalie, let me give this to him.
Cuban cigars. His favourite and tough to get.|
|00:15:02||Stay here. I'll see what I can do.|
|00:15:27||Yeah, I'll see you shortly, I hope.|
|00:15:51||Well, life all comes down to a few moments.|
|00:15:54||This is one of 'em.|
|00:15:59||What the hell's going on?|
|00:16:01||I'm looking at 200,000 shares move, pal.
I wanna know if we're part of it.|
|00:16:06||We'd better be, or I'm gonna come
and eat your lunch for you. Back in two.|
|00:16:10||Sorry, Jeff. Look, I loved it at 40.
It's an insult at 50.|
|00:16:14||Their analysts don't know
preferred stock from livestock.|
|00:16:18||Wait till it heads south, then we raise the
sperm count on the deal. Get back at ya.|
|00:16:25||This is the kid. Calls me 59 days in a row.
Wants to be a player.|
|00:16:30||Oughta be in the dictionary
|00:16:33||Listen, Jerry, I'm looking for negative control.
No more than 30, 35%.|
|00:16:38||Just enough to block anybody else's merger
plans, and find out if the books are cooked.|
|00:16:43||If it looks as good as on paper,
we're in the kill zone, pal.|
|00:16:47||Lunch? You kiddin'? Lunch is for wimps.
OK, Billy. I'll talk at ya.|
|00:16:55||How do you do, Mr Gekko? I'm Bud Fox.|
|00:16:58||So you say. Nice to meet you.
Hope you're intelligent.|
|00:17:01||- Where'd you get these?
- I got a connection at the airport.|
|00:17:06||So what's on your mind, kemo sabe?
Why am I listening to you?|
|00:17:09||I gotta monitor my blood pressure,
so don't upset me.|
|00:17:13||No. No, sir.|
|00:17:15||In 45 seconds, the microprocessor computes
your systolic and diastolic pressure.|
|00:17:20||Got an LCD read-out, cost-effective...
Less than one visit to a doctor.|
|00:17:27||I just wanna let you know I've read all about
you at NYU Business. I think you're a genius.|
|00:17:34||I've always dreamed of one thing and
that's to do business with a man like you.|
|00:17:38||- What firm you with?
- Jackson Steinem.|
|00:17:40||They're going places.
Good junk-bond department.|
|00:17:43||You the financing on
that Jansen investment?|
|00:17:46||Yeah. I'm working on
some other interesting stuff.|
|00:17:50||Cosmetic company, by any chance?|
|00:17:52||Are you twelfth man on the deal team?
Last to know?|
|00:17:56||- I can't tell you that, Mr Gekko.
- So what you got for me, sport?|
|00:18:00||Chart breakout on
|00:18:02||Explosive earnings. A 30% discount from
book. Great cash flow. Couple of 5% holders.|
|00:18:07||- It's a dog.
- Strong management.|
|00:18:09||It's a dog, pal. What else you got
besides connections at the airport?|
|00:18:14||Mr Stevenson in San Francisco.|
|00:18:21||- He respond?
- Lecturing on economics.|
- No, he's in Chicago.|
|00:18:25||Why the hell is Cromwell giving a lecture
tour when he's losing 60 million a quarter?!|
|00:18:30||Guess he's giving lectures
in how to lose money.|
|00:18:33||If this guy owned a funeral parlour,
no one would die! This turkey is braindead!|
|00:18:39||OK. All right, Christmas is over,
and business is business.|
|00:18:43||You keep on buying. Dilute the son of a bitch!|
|00:18:46||Ollie, I want every orifice
in his fuckin' body flowin' red!|
|00:18:50||He's flowin', Gordo. Piece of cake.|
|00:18:52||This guy's the best trader on the street.|
|00:18:55||Susan, get me the LBO analysis
on Teldar Paper. Bring it in here, please.|
|00:19:00||- Mr Gekko, your wife.
- What else you got?|
|00:19:03||Terafly. Analysts don't like it. I do.
The break-up value is twice the market price.|
|00:19:09||This deal finances itself.
You sell off two divisions...|
|00:19:12||Not bad for a quant,
but that's a dog with different fleas.|
|00:19:16||Come on, pal.
Tell me something I don't know.|
|00:19:19||It's my birthday.|
|00:19:30||- Bluestar Airlines.
- Rings a bell somewhere. So what?|
|00:19:35||It's a comer. 80 medium-body jets. 300 pilots.|
|00:19:39||Flies to Florida, Canada,
uh, Northeast, the Caribbean.|
|00:19:44||- Great slots in major cities.
- I don't like airlines. Lousy unions.|
|00:19:48||Well, there was a crash last year.|
|00:19:51||They just got a favourable
ruling on a lawsuit.|
|00:19:54||Even the plaintiffs don't know about it.|
|00:19:57||Well, how do you know about it?|
|00:20:00||I just know.|
|00:20:02||The decision should clear the way
for new planes and routes.|
|00:20:06||There's only a small float. You should grab it.
Good for a five-point pop.|
|00:20:10||250,000 shares at 181/4 from Jansen.|
|00:20:13||I can pull twice that at 181/2
from the California pensions.|
|00:20:16||We got close to half a million
shares in the bag.|
Blow 'em away, Ollie!|
|00:20:24||We got the Beezer Brothers.
I'm working on the Silverberg boys.|
|00:20:28||Rip their fuckin' throats out!
Stuff 'em in your garbage compactor!|
|00:20:32||Interesting. Got a card?|
|00:20:35||Home number's on the back.|
|00:20:37||Bud Fox, I look at a hundred
deals a day. I choose one.|
|00:20:41||- I hope to hear from you, sir.
- Thanks for the cigars.|
|00:20:45||Let's go, guys. Looks like
we're going over 5% in Teldar.|
|00:20:48||Start the lawyers on a tender offer and 13D.|
|00:20:51||We buy everything in sight,
but we don't pay over 22.|
|00:20:54||They'll fight. They got Myers
and Thromberg doing their legal.|
|00:20:59||- Thanks, Natalie.
- Have a nice day, Mr Fox.|
|00:21:02||Mr Gekko, your conference call is ready. Mr
Sugarman in Delaware, Mr Bernard in LA...|
|00:21:07||...Mr Jackson and Ms Rosco
in London. They're all on.|
|00:21:11||Please, I'm begging you.
I'm in a bind down here.|
|00:21:14||We got all these damn new computers and
young men that are edging me out here.|
|00:21:21||Hey, Bud! Did he see you?|
|00:21:24||Yeah, he saw right through me.|
|00:21:26||Cheer up. You shook Gekko's hand
and you still got all your fingers.|
|00:21:30||Besides, he's not the only
elephant in the jungle.|
|00:21:33||Holy cow! Did you get something
from him? Teldar Paper, huh?|
|00:21:37||Nah. It's a dog with fleas.|
|00:21:41||Fox, where have you been
for the last three hours, hm?|
|00:21:46||If I were you, and I thank
my personal God I am not...|
|00:21:50||...I wouldn't be sitting around chinwagging.|
|00:21:52||Plenty of six-figure names
in that zip-code pile to cold-call.|
|00:22:01||Buddy, I got tickets for the Knick game
tonight. Cruise some chicks afterwards.|
|00:22:07||- No, I gotta read my charts.
- Forget charts, will ya?|
|00:22:10||We're not fund managers.
Churn 'em and burn 'em!|
|00:22:13||I am offering you the Knicks and chicks.|
|00:22:15||God help you before you turn
into poor Steeples over there.|
|00:22:21||Preferably Lou Mannheim.|
|00:22:24||Yeah, nice guy, but he's a loser. He lost all
his equity when the firm went belly-up in '71.|
|00:22:30||You wanna be in your sixties still pitching?|
|00:22:33||Hey, Buddy, whatever happened to
that cute analyst at Thudder and Wicks?|
|00:22:37||Cindy. Having sex with her
was like reading the Wall Street Journal.|
|00:22:41||- She had a heartbeat.
- You wanna bet?|
|00:22:44||I gotta get to work. Zs today.|
|00:22:48||Call for you, Buddy! Pick up two!|
|00:22:53||- Bud Fox.
- All right, Bud Fox.|
|00:22:56||I want you to buy 20,000 shares of Bluestar...|
|00:23:00||...at fifteen and an eighth,
|00:23:05||And don't screw it up, sport.|
|00:23:08||- Think you can handle that?
- Yes, sir! Thank you. You won't regret this.|
|00:23:14||Whoo! Marv, I just bagged the elephant!|
|00:23:54||- Hiya, sport.
- Nice to see you again, Mr Gekko.|
|00:23:58||Try the steak tartare. It's off the menu.
Louis'll make it for you.|
|00:24:01||- Of course, sir. Anything to drink?
- Just an Evian, please.|
|00:24:06||Hey, see this? Can you believe it?
It's got a two-inch screen.|
|00:24:11||I can hardly see it.|
|00:24:13||It's for my kid - Rudy.
Three years old, he's an electronics freak.|
|00:24:18||We're going into a new age, pal.|
|00:24:21||So how's business today?|
|00:24:23||Great. Bluestar was at 171/4
when I left the office. Up from 15.|
|00:24:28||Might spin up to 18 by the bell.|
|00:24:30||Teldar's shooting up.
Did you buy any for yourself?|
|00:24:34||I bet you were on the phone
two minutes after you got out of my office.|
|00:24:39||No, sir, that wouldn't have been legal.|
|00:24:42||Sure. Relax, pal.
No one's gonna blow the whistle on you.|
|00:24:48||Is that legal? Why don't you
put that in my account?|
|00:24:52||- Hey, Gordon!
- Georgie! The cellular king! How you been?|
|00:24:56||- Monique, nice to see you, my dear.
- Hello, Gordon.|
|00:24:59||- You look wonderful.
- You're looking very well yourself.|
|00:25:03||And Mr Davis...|
|00:25:06||Can I get the check here, please?
|00:25:09||Cover that Bluestar buy. Put 200 thou on one
of those bow-wow stocks you mentioned.|
|00:25:15||Pick the dog with the least fleas.
Use a stop-loss, so your downside's 100 thou.|
|00:25:21||And buy a decent suit.
You can't come in here looking like this.|
|00:25:25||Go to Morty Sills. Tell him I sent you.|
|00:25:27||Yes, sir. Thank you, Mr Gekko. Thank you
for the chance. You will not regret this.|
|00:25:32||You're with a winner.|
|00:25:37||Put the rest of the money in a tax-free fund.
I wanna see how you do before I invest it.|
|00:25:42||And save the cheap salesman talk.
|00:25:44||- Excuse me, sir?
- You heard me.|
|00:25:48||I don't like losses, sport.
Nothing ruins my day more than losses.|
|00:25:52||Now you do good... you get perks.|
|00:25:56||Lots and lots of perks.|
|00:25:59||- Louis, take care of my friend.
- Thank you, sir.|
|00:26:02||Have a good lunch, Buddy.|
|00:26:41||I'm Lisa. A friend of Gordon's.|
|00:26:46||Lisa? Gordon? Oh, oh, Mr Gekko. Sure.|
|00:26:51||Uh, would you like to come in?|
|00:26:54||Didn't he tell you?|
|00:26:56||Oh, that's so like Gordon.|
|00:26:59||Why don't you get dressed? We're going out.|
|00:27:24||So... where are we going?|
|00:27:26||Wherever you like.|
|00:27:29||Lut?ce. 21. The River Caf?.|
|00:27:33||Or maybe we could just...|
|00:27:37||...drive around for a while.|
|00:27:41||Work up an appetite.|
|00:27:54||Gordon tells me that
you're a very talented broker.|
|00:27:59||What do you like?|
|00:28:04||I've got this guy who tells me
to buy Hewlett-Packard...|
|00:28:08||...but I've been burned on tips.|
Now, let's see. It closed at 411/4.|
|00:28:16||Up an eighth. Very attractive.|
|00:28:20||About, uh... average yield.|
|00:28:23||- Very attractive.
|00:28:25||- Rising profits.
|00:28:28||Strong balance sheet.|
|00:28:30||You're hot on this stock.|
|00:28:32||Uh... It's ready to take off.|
|00:28:35||I'd jump all over it if I were you.|
|00:28:40||- Good morning, Carolyn.
- Morning. You look happy.|
|00:28:43||- Any better and I'd be guilty.
- You were never innocent, sugar pie.|
|00:28:47||How do you know? You wish!|
|00:30:06||Goddamn! We sure went down
the toilet on that ugly bitch!|
|00:30:11||Oh, Buddy! Mr Gekko's office is looking
for you. Be at the Wyatt Club courts at six.|
|00:30:29||Come on, sport. You gotta try harder.|
|00:30:32||I need some exercise, for chrissakes.|
|00:30:36||- I don't think I can go on, Mr Gekko.
- Push yourself. Finish out the game.|
|00:30:43||It's a very nice club, Mr Gekko.|
|00:30:47||Not bad for a City College boy.|
|00:30:51||Bought my way in. Now all these Ivy League
schmucks are sucking my kneecaps.|
|00:30:57||I just got on the board of the Bronx Zoo.|
|00:31:00||It cost me a mil.|
|00:31:03||That's the thing you gotta
remember about WASPs.|
|00:31:06||They love animals,
but they can't stand people.|
|00:31:12||Uh, Mr Gekko...|
|00:31:15||...we took a little loss today.|
|00:31:18||We got stopped out on Terafly.
About a hundred grand.|
|00:31:27||Well, I guess your dad's not a union
representative of that company, huh?|
|00:31:32||How do you know about my father?|
|00:31:35||The most valuable commodity
I know of is information.|
|00:31:39||Wouldn't you agree?|
|00:31:50||The public's out there
throwing darts at a board, sport.|
|00:31:55||I don't throw darts at a board.
I bet on sure things.|
|00:32:01||Read Sun Tzu, The Art of War.|
|00:32:04||"Every battle is won before it's ever fought."|
|00:32:09||Think about it.|
|00:32:11||You're not as smart as I thought you were.|
|00:32:14||You ever wonder why fund managers
can't beat the S&P 500?|
|00:32:18||Cos they're sheep.
And sheep get slaughtered.|
|00:32:23||I've been in this business since '69.|
|00:32:26||Most of these Harvard MBA types
don't add up to dogshit.|
|00:32:30||You need guys that are poor,
smart and hungry. And no feelings.|
|00:32:34||You win a few, you lose a few,
but you keep on fighting.|
|00:32:39||And if you need a friend, get a dog.
It's trench warfare out there, pal.|
|00:32:44||- Hey, Georgie.
- Hey, Gordon.|
|00:32:46||- How's Larchmont treating you?
- Fine. How's the Praxar deal going?|
|00:32:50||- You should know, pal.
|00:32:55||And inside here, too.|
|00:32:58||I got 20 other brokers analysing charts, pal.
I don't need another one.|
|00:33:04||See you around, Buddy.|
|00:33:06||I am notjust another broker, Mr Gekko.
If you give me another chance, I'll prove it.|
|00:33:12||I'll go the extra yard for you.
Just one more chance, Mr Gekko. Please!|
|00:33:16||Want another chance? Then stop sending me
information, and start getting me some.|
|00:33:23||Get dressed. I'll show you my charts.|
|00:33:29||- You know the name?
- Larry Wildman, one of the first raiders.|
|00:33:33||Sir Larry Wildman. Like all Brits, thinks
he was born with a better pot to piss in.|
|00:33:39||Bribed an old secretary of mine
to open her mouth.|
|00:33:42||Stole RDL Pharmaceuticals
right from under me.|
|00:33:45||Wildman, the "White Knight".|
|00:33:47||I remember that deal.
You were involved, Mr Gekko?|
|00:33:51||Payback time, sport.|
|00:33:53||See that building? I bought that building
ten years ago. My first real-estate deal.|
|00:33:58||Sold it two years later.
Made an $800,000 profit.|
|00:34:04||It was better than sex.|
|00:34:06||At the time I thought that was all the money
in the world. Now it's a day's pay.|
|00:34:12||Anyway, I had a mole in Wildman's operation.|
|00:34:16||- He gave me half the picture, then got fired.
- I don't think I follow you.|
|00:34:20||Wildman's in town.
He just became an American citizen.|
|00:34:25||Something big is going down, OK?|
|00:34:27||I wanna know where he goes, what he sees.
I want you, pal, to fill out the missing picture.|
|00:34:36||Mr Gekko, it's not exactly what I do.
I could lose my licence.|
|00:34:40||If the SEC found out, I could go to jail.
That's inside information, isn't it?|
|00:34:46||Like when a father tells his son
about a court ruling on an airline?|
|00:34:50||Or someone overhears I'm buying Teldar,
and decides he's gonna buy some?|
|00:34:55||Or the chairman of the board of XYZ
decides it's time to blow out XYZ?|
|00:35:00||Is that what you mean?|
|00:35:05||Unless your father's on the board
of directors of another company...|
|00:35:10||...you and I are gonna have a very
tough time doing business together.|
|00:35:14||- What about hard work?
- What about it? You work hard?|
|00:35:17||Bet you stayed up analysing that stock
you gave me. Where'd it get you?|
|00:35:21||My father worked like an elephant till
he dropped dead at 49 with a heart attack.|
|00:35:27||Wake up, will ya, pal?|
|00:35:29||If you're not inside, you are outside, OK?|
|00:35:32||I'm not talking about some
$400,000-a-year Wall Street stiff...|
|00:35:36||...flying first class and being comfortable.
I'm talking about liquid.|
|00:35:41||Rich enough to have your own jet.|
|00:35:44||Rich enough not to waste time.|
|00:35:47||Fifty, a hundred million dollars, Buddy.|
|00:35:56||Now you had what it took
to get into my office.|
|00:36:00||The real question is whether
you got what it takes to stay.|
|00:36:08||Look at that.|
|00:36:09||You're gonna tell me the difference
between this guy and that guy is luck?|
|00:36:15||Mohammed, pull over.|
|00:36:18||If you don't mind, I'm gonna
drop you off here. I'm late.|
|00:36:22||Buddy, it's been nice meeting you, OK?|
|00:36:47||All right, Mr Gekko.|
|00:36:51||You got me.|
|00:37:54||Excuse me, please.|
|00:38:13||I'm sorry, sir. Do you have a reservation?|
|00:38:15||- Uh, table for one.
- Reservations only. We're booked for a week.|
|00:38:19||All right. Don't touch.|
|00:38:49||Everything ready, sir.|
|00:39:07||Excuse me! Is Mr Wildman
on board that plane?|
|00:39:11||Shit! My boss is gonna kill me!
I'm supposed to give him this.|
|00:39:15||- You know where that plane is going?
- Erie, Pennsylvania.|
|00:39:21||After spending the morning at Kahn
Seidelman in the junk-bond department...|
|00:39:27||...he had lunch at that restaurant, Le Circus,
with some well-dressed bean counters.|
|00:39:32||He later stopped off at Morgan. I'd say
from all the smiling and palm-pressing...|
|00:39:37||...Larry got himself some
nice fat financing, GG.|
|00:39:40||Bright, but not bright enough, Sherlock.
Roll the dice and play Monopoly.|
|00:39:44||What box is Sir Larry gonna
land on in Erie, Pennsylvania?|
|00:39:50||Jesus Christ! He's buying Anacott Steel.|
|00:39:53||OK. When the market opens tomorrow,
I want you to buy 1500 July 50 calls.|
|00:40:01||- You hear me?
- Yes, sir.|
|00:40:02||And start buying 1,000-share blocks
and take it up to $50.|
|00:40:08||When it reaches 50,
give out a little taste to your friends.|
|00:40:12||Then I want you to call
the Wall Street Chronicle, extension 1605.|
|00:40:18||You tell the man
"Blue Horseshoe loves Anacott Steel".|
|00:40:22||- You got that?
- The Wall Street Chronicle.|
You scored. I'll talk at ya.|
|00:40:32||Start buying Anacott Steel across the board.|
|00:40:36||Use the offshore accounts.|
|00:40:39||And keep it quiet.|
|00:40:49||Frank, 10,000 ANC at 46. Let me know
how the options are opening, OK?|
|00:41:04||- How is Anacott Steel?
- 53/4, 6. 2,000 up.|
|00:41:07||- Six at 10,000.
- I'll sell you 2,000.|
|00:41:10||That's not what I said. I said 20,000 shares.|
|00:41:22||Anacott trades at six.|
|00:41:25||- 8,000 at a quarter?
- I'll take 8,000.|
|00:41:28||Make it six to a half, 2,000 up.|
|00:41:31||I know what time it is,
and this is what I'm saying.|
|00:41:35||We have important financial news, Mr Erlich,
that just happens to concern your future.|
|00:41:41||- You could benefit... What's going on?
- Anacott Steel. Put your best customers in it.|
|00:41:50||Lou, I got a sure thing.|
|00:41:55||No such thing, except death and taxes. Not
a good company any more. No fundamentals.|
|00:42:02||What's goin' on, Bud?|
|00:42:06||You know something?|
|00:42:09||Remember, there are no short cuts, son.|
|00:42:13||Quick-buck artists come and go
with every bull market.|
|00:42:16||The steady players make it
through the bear markets.|
|00:42:19||You're a part of something here, Bud.|
|00:42:21||The money you make for people creates
science and research jobs. Don't sell that out.|
|00:42:26||You're right, but you gotta get to the
big time first, then you can do good things.|
|00:42:31||- You can't get a little bit pregnant, son.
- Lou, trust me. It's a winner. Buy it.|
|00:42:38||We'll kamikaze over to Nell's,
chase some cotton underwear.|
|00:42:41||I know this 18-year-old bimbette
that's gorgeous. Hold on.|
|00:42:46||- Play tennis Saturday?
- Can't. Fly-fishing in Canada. Real big client.|
|00:42:51||- Take Anacott?
- Light snack, but good. Thanks, pal.|
|00:42:54||You're sharking your way up.|
|00:42:58||No, no, my dear, you've got to diversify.|
|00:43:01||I got a sure thing. Anacott Steel.|
|00:43:04||I've just heard the most lovely two words.|
|00:43:08||Blue Horseshoe loves Anacott Steel.|
|00:43:26||Looks like Anacott Steel's in play.
Check the ARBs.|
|00:43:33||Looks like it's being accumulated.|
|00:43:36||Lou? Anacott. I buy. Yeah.
Take it and bid it.|
|00:43:41||Quarters won't matter.
Keep taking Anacott.|
|00:43:44||This is special. Anacott. Paint the tape.|
|00:43:47||- Bet the ranch.
- Buy 100,000 shares.|
|00:43:49||- Wildman is sniffing around.
- It's on automatic pilot to the moon.|
|00:43:52||- If it hits 75, we'll clean 24 mil.
- Relax, pal.|
|00:43:56||Don't get emotional about stock.
It clouds the judgment.|
|00:44:00||Which closed at 511/8, up 51/8 from
yesterday's close on heavy trading.|
|00:44:21||Can I help you?|
|00:44:22||Yes, I'm Bud Fox. I have some
papers for Mr Gekko to sign.|
|00:44:26||- Come in.
- Thank you.|
|00:44:30||- I'm sorry about this, Mr Gekko.
- It's all right. It's OK.|
|00:44:35||You wanna wait here?|
This is Bud Fox. My wife, Kate.|
|00:44:42||- Hello. You came out from the city?
- Yes, ma'am.|
|00:44:45||Ah, long drive. You want a drink?|
|00:44:48||Yeah, you want a drink? Um... sure.|
|00:44:51||- If you'd rather not.
- No, come on. Have a drink.|
|00:44:53||Get to meet all the people.
It's a good idea.|
|00:44:58||We got Sam Ruspoli, Carmen Winters,
Stone Livingston. This is Bud Fox.|
|00:45:03||His illustrious wife, Muffie.|
|00:45:05||Candice Rogers, Dick Brady.
Darien Taylor. All old friends.|
|00:45:16||Great idea, Gordon. I know good help is hard
to find, but can it create a dry vodka martini?|
|00:45:22||It doesn't talk back or steal the silverware.|
|00:45:25||And Dick here is gonna get me
an exemption, aren't you?|
|00:45:28||I'm in St Kitts with this new
Kamali leopard-skin V-cut bikini...|
|00:45:34||...which is gonna turn back the clock on my
marriage five years. Know what I mean?|
|00:45:39||Call for you, sir. Sir Lawrence Wildman.
He says it's important.|
|00:45:43||Thank you, Nyung.|
|00:45:45||Would you fix Mr Livingston another
martini? Stick around. This could be fun.|
|00:45:49||It's all because this Ukrainian bitch
botched the job on my wax on my bikini line.|
|00:45:54||How ghastly! Sue her.|
|00:45:56||- Larry, what a surprise!
- I want to see you, Gordon.|
|00:46:00||Can it wait till tomorrow? I got people here.|
|00:46:02||- No, this can't wait. It's important.
- OK. If you feel that way, come on over.|
|00:46:09||Ah! There you are!
Can I steal him for a minute?|
|00:46:13||- Of course.
- I want your opinion.|
|00:46:23||So what do you see in this?|
|00:46:34||A few thousand dollars
down the tubes, if you ask me.|
|00:46:40||You can kiss your career
as an art appraiser goodbye.|
|00:46:43||We paid over 400,000 for it at the
contemporary picture sale last June.|
|00:46:48||Jesus, you could've had
a whole beach house for that!|
|00:46:51||Sure you could. In Wildwood, New Jersey.|
|00:46:56||If you sold this one, you could
have a nice penthouse on Fifth.|
|00:47:01||You wouldn't have much
left over for decoration.|
|00:47:04||It's nice, if you're on mushrooms.|
|00:47:06||I thought Gordon was a tough businessman.
He sure has taken a bath on that.|
|00:47:11||A bath? I'd say Gordon is one of
the most astute collectors around.|
|00:47:17||He has a great eye, and he only buys the best.|
|00:47:21||Like this rug, for instance.
A Bokhara. It's the finest of its kind.|
|00:47:26||After he bought it, a dealer
representing the Saudi royal family...|
|00:47:30||...offered him twice what he paid.
It absolutely makes the room.|
|00:47:35||See how this bit of celadon in the border
is picked up by these cushions?|
|00:47:39||Although it's a sacrilege
having that Etruscan vase on the table.|
|00:47:44||Some dope might use it as an ashtray.|
|00:47:47||- I guess you're a decorator?
- You got it.|
|00:47:50||A great spender of other people's money.|
|00:47:53||If you're that good, I'm sure you
can do wonders with my place.|
|00:47:57||- Where would that be?
- Upper West Side.|
|00:48:00||Really? Home of the exposed
brick wall and the houseplant?|
|00:48:05||It's just a rental. I'll be moving to the East
Side soon. Some deals brewing with Gordon.|
|00:48:11||But that's just conversation.
What about real things?|
|00:48:14||Like dinner? The two of us... next Friday?
Caf? Santo Domingo.|
|00:48:20||What if I have a previous engagement?|
|00:48:23||You break it.|
|00:48:25||There you go again, Darien.
Talking with strange men.|
|00:48:29||Hello. Sam, do you know Bud Fox?
Sam is in banking.|
|00:48:34||- Works for Gordon.
- Nice meeting you.|
|00:48:37||- Are you staying for dinner?
- No, I have work to do.|
|00:48:41||- Ah. The bell.|
|00:48:49||Call me next week. I'll give you an estimate.|
|00:48:56||- Larry, how have you been?
- Fine. Travelling, actually.|
|00:48:59||- Can I get you a drink?
- No, thank you.|
|00:49:02||Larry! Excuse me. Sir Larry.|
|00:49:06||How are ya? Goddamn, you look great!|
- So you wanna talk.|
|00:49:13||- I'll be heading back now, Mr Gekko.
- Stick around.|
|00:49:17||This is one of my gang. Bud Fox.|
|00:49:22||Shall we go upstairs?|
|00:49:36||The rarest pistol in the world, Larry.|
|00:49:41||Only six of 'em were ever manufactured.|
|00:49:49||Rarer still is your interest in Anacott Steel.|
|00:49:52||My interest is the same as yours. Money.
Thought it'd be a good investment for my kid.|
|00:49:57||No, this time I'm in for the long term. It's
not a liquidation. I'm gonna turn it around.|
|00:50:02||You're getting a free ride on my tail, mate.|
|00:50:06||With the dollars you're costing me to
buy back stock, I could modernise the plant.|
|00:50:11||I'm not the only one who pays here, Gordon.|
|00:50:14||We're talking about lives and jobs.
Four generations of steelworkers...|
|00:50:18||Correct me if I'm wrong, but when you got
CNX Electronics, you laid off 6,000 workers.|
|00:50:25||Jemson Fruit, 4,000.
That airline you bought, um...|
|00:50:28||I could break you, mate.
In two pieces over my knees.|
|00:50:33||You know it. I know it.|
|00:50:35||I could buy you six times over.|
|00:50:38||I could dump the stock just to burn your arse!|
|00:50:42||But I happen to want the company,
and I want your block of shares.|
a tender offer at 65 tomorrow.|
|00:50:50||I'm expecting your commitment.|
|00:50:54||Showdowns bore me, Larry. Nobody wins.
You can have the company.|
|00:50:59||In fact, it'll be fun watching you and your
giant ego trying to make a horse race of it.|
|00:51:06||Buddy, what's a fair price for that stock?|
|00:51:09||The break-up value is higher. It's worth 80.|
|00:51:12||Well, we don't want to be greedy.
So what do you say to 72?|
|00:51:19||You're a two-bit pirate and greenmailer.
|00:51:27||Not only would you sell your mother
to make a deal, you'd send her COD.|
|00:51:32||My mail is the same colour as yours is, pal.|
|00:51:36||Or at least it was until the Queen
started calling you "Sir".|
|00:51:41||Excuse me before I lose my temper.|
|00:51:52||Considering you brought my mother into it...|
|00:52:04||You'll hear from my lawyers
tomorrow, 8am. Good night.|
|00:52:14||He's right, I had to sell.
The key to the game is capital reserves.|
|00:52:18||If you don't have enough, you can't piss
in the tall weeds with the big dogs.|
|00:52:23||"All warfare is based on deception." Sun Tzu.|
|00:52:27||"If your enemy is superior, evade him."|
|00:52:30||"If angry, irritate him."|
|00:52:32||"If equally matched, fight.
And if not, split. Re-evaluate."|
|00:52:39||He's learning, huh? Buddy's learning!|
- Money never sleeps, pal.|
|00:52:56||Just made 800,000 in Hong Kong gold.
It's been wired to you.|
|00:53:00||Play with it. You done good,
but you gotta keep doing good.|
|00:53:05||I showed you how the game works.
Now school's out.|
|00:53:09||Mr Gekko, I'm there for you 110%.|
|00:53:12||No, no, no, no. You don't understand.
I wanna be surprised.|
|00:53:18||Astonish me, pal. New info.
I don't care where or how you get it.|
|00:53:23||Just get it.|
|00:53:27||My wife tells me you made a move on Darien.|
|00:53:32||Here's some inside info for you.|
|00:53:34||That GQ type she's going out with
got big bucks...|
|00:53:37||...but he's putting her feet to sleep.|
|00:53:40||Exit visas are imminent.|
|00:53:43||I don't want you losing your place in line.|
|00:53:50||I wish you could see this.|
|00:53:53||The light's coming up.|
|00:53:59||I've never seen a painting that
captures the beauty of the ocean...|
|00:54:03||...at a moment like this.|
|00:54:07||I'm gonna make you rich, Bud Fox.|
|00:54:11||Yeah. Rich enough
that you can afford a girl like Darien.|
|00:54:15||This is your wake-up call, pal.|
|00:54:19||Go to work.|
- Mr Barnes.|
|00:54:41||Buddy D, is this d?j? vu?
What's it been? A year, year and a half?|
|00:54:45||So, I hear you're moving up in the world.|
|00:54:48||A senior associate. Not bad. Not bad.
|00:54:52||I can't complain.
I got a house in Oyster Bay, you know.|
|00:54:56||Market treating you good?|
|00:54:58||- Still seeing that sexy French chick?
- No. No. She asked the wrong question.|
|00:55:03||- What was that?
- "What are you thinking?"|
|00:55:09||The hours are hell, but the cash
is starting to tumble in.|
|00:55:14||I know this guy who has an ironclad way
of making money. I can't lose or get hurt.|
|00:55:19||Can't get hurt. So does this guy
have a tip for an honest lawyer?|
|00:55:24||Maybe. Check out Teldar Paper...|
|00:55:28||...but don't quote me.|
|00:55:31||And you? I hear you're handling the Fairchild
Foods merger, and it may not go through.|
|00:55:37||Any surprises I haven't read about
in the Wall Street Journal?|
|00:55:40||Come on, that's illegal.
You wouldn't wanna get me disbarred.|
Just one college buddy talking to another.|
|00:55:49||- Yeah, right.
- Oh, relax, Roger.|
|00:55:53||Everybody's doing it now.|
|00:55:56||But, if you don't know,
then... you don't know.|
|00:56:06||And if I did...|
|00:56:08||...what's in it for moi?|
|00:56:12||More money than you ever dreamed of.|
|00:56:15||Nobody gets hurt.|
|00:56:19||You think about it.|
|00:56:23||- Let's grab a beer. What do you say?
- Uh... too much to do. But I'll walk you out.|
|00:56:30||The file's on the desk, Marie.|
|00:56:32||Get inside my uncle's door
and the secrets of the world are yours.|
|00:56:36||Lifeblood of companies...|
|00:56:38||Of course, you gotta go
to law school first, but...|
|00:56:58||Mr Panos, I've been charting
the growth of office space.|
|00:57:02||You're in the right business
at the right time.|
|00:57:05||Thank you for tell me what I already know.|
|00:57:07||Look, I'm very impressed with your work,
and I could use a tax break.|
|00:57:11||Let me ask, what would you say to
some working capital and a partner?|
|00:57:15||Why do I need a partner?|
|00:57:17||Look, you need more vans. 42 employees
can't cover the buildings you got...|
|00:57:21||...not to mention the clients
we'd have together.|
|00:57:24||I am an expert at identifying undervalued
assets such as this business.|
|00:58:18||The good news, Gordon,
is Rorker Electronics.|
|00:58:21||That's right. I see it happening
in the next two months.|
|00:58:24||Come on, their quarterlies are for shit.|
|00:58:27||I got a little gift for you.|
|00:58:31||Gordon will be very pleased.
What else have you got?|
|00:58:39||You know Marty Weidman?|
|00:58:41||He netted 650G off of that merger.
26 years old, the guy's Rambo.|
|00:58:45||- He's an asshole!
- He is Rambo!|
|00:58:47||He's got a Porsche Turbo
Cabriolet, about 75 thou.|
|00:58:50||I think if I can make a bundle of cash
before I'm 30 and get out of this racket...|
|00:58:55||...l'll be able to ride
my motorcycle across China.|
|00:58:59||I'd like to do for furniture what
Laura Ashley did for interior fabrics.|
|00:59:03||Produce a line of high-quality
antiques at a low price.|
|00:59:07||Sounds great. I'll take you public.|
|00:59:35||Can I help you?|
|00:59:38||Oh. Excuse me. Is this Bill Bates' office?|
|00:59:57||- What brings you out here?
- Client's got a private jet at Butler.|
|01:00:01||- Hey, Buddy. How ya doing?
- Mr Wall Street!|
|01:00:03||The bozos that keep us in the air!|
|01:00:06||- Give us a hand.
- Do an honest day's work.|
|01:00:08||All right. Change the oil,
fill the tyres and park it out back.|
|01:00:12||This kid wanna buy the plane?|
|01:00:14||- You always light up when you see me.
- Don't start, all right?|
|01:00:20||So who peed in your Cheerios?|
|01:00:22||Goddamn fare wars are killing us!|
|01:00:25||Management's gonna lay off
five of my men this week.|
|01:00:28||I'm sorry about that.|
|01:00:30||- So how much you need?
- I don't need anything. I'm doing great.|
|01:00:34||New client, new ball game.
Things are starting to happen.|
|01:00:37||Sure. Lots of guys at the track talk like that.|
|01:00:40||How do you know you'll have any dough
next month? Jesus Christ, what is this?|
|01:00:45||It's a dividend.|
|01:00:47||I've borrowed at least five grand
over the years.|
|01:00:50||Oh, stop it.
Put this towards your school loan.|
|01:00:54||Forget the loans. Look, Dad, things
are good and it's gonna stay that way.|
|01:00:59||- Buy yourself a new suit.
- What do I need a suit for?|
|01:01:02||I don't hobnob with the jet set.
I just fix their planes.|
|01:01:05||Then get a decent bowling jacket, so you
don't look like the Roto-Rooter man.|
|01:01:10||Come on, what's money for? Enjoy yourself.|
|01:01:13||Money is a pain in the ass,
if you ask me. But thanks, kid.|
|01:01:16||- How about dinner?
- Sure. Any night this week.|
|01:01:19||OK. No, I'm sorry. This week's booked.|
|01:01:21||- I'll check with my girl. I'll get back to you.
- You do that, Huckleberry.|
|01:01:26||I gotta run. You stop smoking, you hear?|
|01:01:29||I'll talk at ya.|
|01:01:45||It's in both our interests to put
a safe distance between you and us.|
|01:01:49||- You understand that, Mr Fox?
|01:01:53||This gives you limited power of attorney
for Mr Gekko's account.|
|01:01:57||Every ticket you buy must be
marked "power of attorney".|
|01:02:01||That means that you call the shots.|
|01:02:03||Mr Gekko has no official knowledge
of what stocks you're buying. All right?|
|01:02:08||Just sign it at the end, twice.|
|01:02:11||I never knew how poor I was
until I started making money.|
|01:02:15||Your transactions will be
monitored by StockWatch.|
|01:02:18||If any trouble does arise,
you are on your own out there.|
|01:02:22||The trail stops with you, understand?|
|01:02:24||Spread the buy orders over
different accounts, you won't get burnt.|
|01:02:28||I have friends that won't
mind making easy money.|
|01:02:31||- Rudy Gazoodi! How's my cutie?! Viens ici!|
|01:02:37||We need more votes for the
showdown, but don't wanna go public...|
|01:02:38||We need more votes for the
showdown, but don't wanna go public...|
|01:02:41||- Bonjour, Monsieur Buddy.
- Bonjour, Monsieur Buddy.|
|01:02:44||Oh! He speaks French already.|
|01:02:48||Kid had the highest score in his IQ test.|
|01:02:51||It is so difficult to get into
a good nursery school now.|
|01:02:57||They even go to your home
to make sure you're acceptable.|
|01:03:00||That's it for you with the grown-ups.|
|01:03:03||- Nicole, would you take him for a nap now?
- Viens, mon petit.|
|01:03:06||Give him a bath and put that
cute little black suit on him.|
|01:03:10||This is a contact at one of our offshore banks.|
|01:03:14||On settlement day you'll open
an account for Mr Gekko...|
|01:03:17||...under the name Geneva Roth Holding Corp.|
|01:03:20||Then you'll wire-transfer the money
to this account in the Cayman Islands.|
|01:03:25||You're gonna make a lot of money, pal.|
|01:03:28||The stakes are going up. No mistakes.|
|01:03:33||Piece of cake, Gordon.|
|01:03:50||If I could have anything...|
|01:03:52||...this would almost do.|
|01:03:59||How'd your conference go with Gordon?|
|01:04:01||It went fine. We reached an agreement,
and decided to split up the world between us.|
|01:04:08||You have modest wants.
I like that in a man.|
|01:04:12||- What do you want?
- Let's see.|
|01:04:15||A Turner. A perfect canary diamond.|
|01:04:22||The best of everything.|
|01:04:23||Well, why stop at that?|
|01:04:43||My client wants to buy a large block
of Teldar. He needs to spread it around.|
|01:04:47||I'll park some money in your account.
If it hits, you get a big cut.|
|01:04:51||I'm telling you, this is the easiest
money you've ever made.|
|01:04:55||All right, Bud.|
|01:04:57||Let's do it.|
|01:05:00||We go way back, Harry.|
|01:05:02||You know, I-I-I've put a lot of money
into this firm over the years.|
|01:05:07||- I brought in a lot of business.
- You've taken enough out, too.|
|01:05:10||- You should have something put aside.
- With the divorces I haven't had a chance.|
|01:05:16||- The bridges are burned.
- When you fire me I'm finished. On the street.|
|01:05:20||- How do you think I feel about this?
- How do you think I feel?|
|01:05:23||I've got responsibilities. I've got two kids...|
|01:05:26||What's going on?|
|01:05:29||Lynch is giving him the boot.
Not pulling his quota.|
|01:05:34||We're all one trade away from humility.|
|01:05:36||New report on GM and a conference call
in defence stock in my office, 7 am tomorrow.|
|01:05:41||No RSVP required. Just be there.|
|01:05:45||Now, on a more inspiring note,
the new office record...|
|01:05:49||...for a single month's gross commission
from the wealthy individual accounts...|
|01:05:54||...goes to Bud Fox.
Shows cold calling does work, fellas.|
|01:05:58||Way to go, Bud. Superjob. Come on up here.|
|01:06:01||Bud, congrats. You just made my life
twice as hard around here.|
|01:06:10||You're on a roll, kid. Enjoy it
while it lasts, cos it never does.|
|01:06:16||Just kicking ass and taking names, Lou.|
|01:06:33||Come along with me, Bud.|
|01:06:41||This is yours now, Bud.|
|01:06:43||Credenza. Tree. Windows.|
|01:06:45||And, significantly more attractive,
your private secretary Janet.|
|01:06:50||- Nice to meet you, Mr Fox.
- Hello, Janet.|
|01:06:54||Well, I don't really know what to say.
Thank you, Mr Lynch.|
|01:06:58||No, I thank you, Bud.|
|01:06:59||The minute I laid my eyes on you
I knew that you had what it takes.|
|01:07:04||Now you can focus on the big-ticket retail.|
|01:07:07||Oh, this is very nice. This is very nice.|
|01:07:11||So what is it? Mr Cocksucker now?|
|01:07:16||Everybody hates the Upper East Side.
They wanna live on the West Side.|
|01:07:20||But when it's resale time
the East Side moves all the time.|
|01:07:24||What have you got on the West Side?
Sean and Madonna?! Trust me.|
|01:07:28||Massage, sauna, Jacuzzi... tanning salon.|
|01:07:34||Best schools in the city.|
|01:07:37||A cute young boy like you gotta think
of a future lady friend in your life...|
|01:07:42||...when you've finished wolfing around.|
|01:07:45||Course, I'm taken.|
|01:07:47||Oak strip floors.|
|01:07:49||My husband can get you a 10% mortgage.|
|01:07:51||I would do it myself, except
I'm into four other deals right now.|
|01:07:56||So, I got a four o'clock and a five. One's an
all-cash type. Monique something or other.|
|01:08:02||Look, maybe you'd like to see something
cheaper that I got on First Avenue?|
|01:08:07||Honey, the meter's running. Anybody home?|
|01:08:12||All right. Offer 950.|
|01:08:18||I got something over on Sutton Place.|
|01:08:20||It's a million and a half,
but now we're talking duplex.|
|01:08:26||This is it. This is home.|
|01:08:58||That's enough gold over there.|
|01:09:25||I'm having House & Garden come up next
week to photograph it before it gets lived in.|
|01:09:31||Do you mind?|
|01:09:34||Hey! Jerry! Come at me. Whaddaya got?|
|01:09:37||No, no. 371/2.|
|01:09:39||Convert the bonds and check the price
in Tokyo at eight o'clock your time. Right.|
|01:10:07||I'm spilling everything.|
|01:10:40||Isn't it perfect?|
|01:10:43||It's too perfect.|
|01:10:46||Let's not even eat.|
|01:10:48||Let's just watch it... think about it.|
|01:11:38||Who am I?|
|01:11:50||Bud, come to bed.|
|01:11:57||One million six. Seven.|
|01:11:59||On my left now.
Against you, 1,800,000.|
|01:12:04||1,900,000. New bidder this side.
$2m here now.|
|01:12:08||Not yours. At $2,100,000. $2,100,000.|
|01:12:12||Fair warning, then.
Selling for $2,100,000. All done.|
|01:12:15||For you, sir. $2,100,000.|
|01:12:18||Whaddaya say we get a suite at the Carlyle?|
Celebrate just like old times?|
|01:12:25||Come on, Gordon. Those days are over.|
|01:12:28||Well, you can't blame me for trying.|
|01:12:31||You're as beautiful as
that painting I just bought.|
|01:12:35||Sunshine, what's wrong?
I think you got a bad case of puppy love.|
|01:12:40||I think I'm falling for Bud.|
|01:12:43||Don't fall too far. He hasn't been
around the block yet. You have.|
|01:12:48||- Told him about us?
- No! Are you crazy?|
|01:12:52||- I don't want him to ever know, understand?
- Mum is the word.|
|01:12:59||You and I are the same, Darien.|
|01:13:01||We are smart enough not to buy
into the oldest myth running-love.|
|01:13:06||Fiction created by people to keep
them from jumping out of windows.|
|01:13:11||You know, sometimes I miss you, Gordon.
You're really twisted.|
|01:13:18||For chrissake, Jack, it's easy!|
|01:13:20||On settlement day you endorse a cheque
to Blue Horseshoe Trading Company.|
|01:13:25||Then I'll send you your cut.|
|01:13:28||What? No, that's the bottom line.
Nobody gets hurt.|
|01:13:32||What the fuck is wrong with you?|
|01:13:34||It's so bad, even the liars are complaining.
But not you. You're making big money.|
|01:13:39||- What's the bottom line?
- Hey, look!|
|01:13:41||I am sick and tired of playing
wet nurse to you!|
|01:13:45||- Will you do your own homework, Marv!
- What an asshole, man!|
|01:13:51||That's a shame.|
|01:13:56||Yeah, Frank. Work 500,000 shares Teldar
with a limit of 26. New account.|
|01:14:01||Don't fuck it up.|
|01:14:05||- How's Teldar doing?
- Back again?|
|01:14:07||- I've got a real appetite.
- Bring it five to a half. 2,000 up.|
|01:14:11||- I gotta buy stock. What's offered at a half?
- What are we looking at?|
|01:14:15||- Make me an offer on 80.
- 80,000 at a half.|
|01:14:18||I'll take it.|
|01:14:45||Your company, ladies and gentlemen,
is under siege from Gordon Gekko.|
|01:14:49||Teldar Paper is now leveraged to the hilt,
like some piss-poor South American country!|
|01:14:55||I strongly recommend you to see through
Mr Gekko's shameless intention here...|
|01:15:01||...to strip this company,
and severely penalise the stockholders.|
|01:15:05||I strongly recommend you
to reject his tender...|
|01:15:09||...by voting for management's
restructuring of the stock.|
|01:15:23||Well, I appreciate the opportunity
you're giving me, Mr Cromwell...|
|01:15:27||...as the single largest shareholder
in Teldar Paper, to speak.|
|01:15:33||We are not here to indulge in fantasy,
but in political and economic reality.|
has become a second-rate power.|
|01:15:47||Its trade deficit and its fiscal deficit
are at nightmare proportions.|
|01:15:54||In the days of the free market, when
our country was a top industrial power...|
|01:15:59||...there was accountability to the stockholder.|
|01:16:02||The Carnegies, the Mellons, the men
that built this great empire, made sure of it...|
|01:16:08||...because it was their money at stake.|
has no stake in the company!|
|01:16:16||All together, these men sitting up here
own less than 3% of the company.|
|01:16:22||And where does Mr Cromwell
put his $1,000,000 salary?|
|01:16:26||Not in Teldar stock. He owns less than 1%.|
|01:16:29||You own the company.
That's right, you, the stockholder.|
|01:16:34||And you are all being royally
screwed over by these bureaucrats...|
|01:16:38||...with their steak lunches, their fishing trips,
their corporate jets and golden parachutes.|
|01:16:44||This is an outrage! You're out of line, Gekko!|
|01:16:47||Teldar Paper, Mr Cromwell,
has 33 different vice presidents...|
|01:16:53||...each earning over $200,000 a year.|
|01:16:59||Now, I have spent the last two months
analysing what all these guys do.|
|01:17:05||- And I still can't figure it out.|
|01:17:08||One thing I do know is that
our paper company lost $110m last year.|
|01:17:14||And I'll bet half of that was spent in all the
paperwork between all these vice presidents!|
|01:17:21||The new law of evolution
in corporate America...|
|01:17:25||...seems to be... survival of the unfittest.|
|01:17:30||Well, in my book you either do it right,
or you get eliminated.|
|01:17:37||In the last seven deals that I have been
involved with there were 2.5m stockholders...|
|01:17:42||...who have made a pre-tax profit
of $12 billion.|
|01:17:51||I am not a destroyer of companies.|
|01:17:55||I am a liberator of them!|
|01:18:00||The point is, ladies and gentlemen,
that greed, for lack of a better word...|
|01:18:08||Greed is right. Greed works.|
|01:18:12||Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures
the essence of the evolutionary spirit.|
|01:18:19||Greed, in all of its forms-greed for life,
for money, for love, knowledge -|
|01:18:26||...has marked the upward surge of mankind.|
|01:18:29||And greed, you mark my words,
will not only save Teldar Paper...|
|01:18:36||...but that other malfunctioning
corporation called the USA.|
|01:18:40||Thank you very much.|
|01:18:58||Buy me 20 June eurodollar CDs...|
|01:19:00||...20 March gold and sell 10 September
Deutschmarks. Right. Talk at ya, babe.|
|01:19:07||Ah, Buddy, Buddy, I hate to tell you this,
but you are a genius!|
|01:19:13||Darien! Lightning has struck.|
|01:19:15||The light bulb has been invented.
|01:19:19||Edison, da Vinci, Einstein.
They're all watching me.|
|01:19:22||Ever hear of the 60-hour work week?|
|01:19:24||You've gotta go to work soon. I'm getting
psychotic from a lack of REM sleep.|
|01:19:28||I'm not gonna broker the rest of my life.|
|01:19:31||I am gonna be a giant, an entrepreneur
in the Italian 16th-century sense of the word.|
|01:19:36||A mover, a shaker.
I'm shooting for the stars, Darien.|
|01:19:40||You're coming along for the ride.|
|01:19:45||Bluestar is an unpolished gem, Gordon.|
|01:19:48||A half-assed management being decimated
by a price war they cannot win.|
|01:19:53||But the gates at La Guardia alone
can bail us out.|
|01:19:56||If it's worth a dime, it's worth 10 bucks
a share. They're ripe to fall!|
|01:20:00||Mixed emotions, Buddy.|
|01:20:02||Like Larry Wildman going off
a cliff... in my new Maserati!|
|01:20:09||Guys like me have had their asses hung
in a sling with the airlines!|
|01:20:12||- Fuel could go up. Unions are killers.
- Yeah, but aren't you forgetting one thing?|
|01:20:17||Capital reserves. This company has
75 million cash in an overfunded pension.|
|01:20:23||That buys us a lot of credibility.|
|01:20:25||And the beauty is, you already
own close to 2% of this sucker.|
|01:20:28||The insurance people are balking on the
logging trucks. What do you want to do?|
|01:20:33||Tell those assholes
we'll self-insure if they don't write it.|
|01:20:37||I can't believe we can fire half
the management and nothing changes!|
|01:20:44||Gordon, what I want,
and I've never asked you for anything...|
|01:20:49||...is to be your copilot on this one.|
|01:20:52||I wanna take this airline, turn it around and
make it work. It's gonna make us a fortune.|
|01:21:00||I got a stockbroker who wants an airline. It'll
take two years to turn Teldar Paper around.|
|01:21:06||What do I need a dink airline for? I'm up
to my ass in more nuts than a fruitcake!|
|01:21:10||I've worked at Bluestar. I know my way
around. I have friends there, inside.|
|01:21:15||What do you mean?|
|01:21:17||The three unions.
It's 43% of Bluestar's operating budget.|
|01:21:22||The hourly cost of a flight crew is 850
an hour. That's the real hidden value, GG.|
|01:21:27||If you can negotiate that out,
get a crew down to 350, 400 an hour...|
|01:21:32||...this airline'll be the hottest thing
since Texas Air.|
|01:21:35||- What makes you think you can?
- I can talk to these people. They trust me.|
|01:21:40||My father can be a big help in getting cuts.|
|01:21:49||All right. Susan, get Buckingham
on the phone. Tell him to look into it.|
|01:21:54||So the falcon's heard the falconer, huh?|
|01:22:12||- Hi, Dad.
- Sorry I'm late.|
|01:22:14||That's OK. Overdressed as usual.|
|01:22:18||Come on in. Everybody's here.
I couldn't start the show without you.|
|01:22:24||Well, I'll be a lousy Republican!|
|01:22:27||I decorate for Democrats, too.
Lots of them. I'm Darien Taylor.|
|01:22:31||- Bud's told me all about you.
- Don't believe a word.|
|01:22:34||I never beat him or locked him in a closet.|
|01:22:36||- I forgot about the closet.
- He turned out OK.|
|01:22:39||Bud's a born liar, otherwise he's a good kid.|
|01:22:42||I hope you come here more often,
under less formal circumstances.|
|01:22:48||- Dad, you know Duncan Wilmore.
- Sure. How are ya?|
Toni Carpenter, flight attendants'.|
|01:22:55||I'd like you to meet Mr Gekko.|
|01:22:57||Mr Fox, pleasure to meet you.|
|01:22:59||His attorney, Mr Salt.|
|01:23:01||I'd be proud to have a son like Buddy.
Got a hell of a career in front of him.|
|01:23:05||I'm glad you think so. I thought this was
informal. What's your attorney doing here?|
|01:23:10||Harold, you don't mind walking
around the block, do you?|
|01:23:13||- Of course.
- I'll take that.|
|01:23:25||That's OK, Gordon. Bud does it all the time.|
|01:23:29||Look, I got no illusions about
winning a popularity contest with any of you.|
|01:23:35||I got roasted the other night.|
|01:23:37||A friend asked "Why are we honouring this
man? Did we run out of human beings?"|
|01:23:44||It's not always the most popular guy
who gets the job done.|
|01:23:51||You've got losses of $20-30 million,
dividends cut to zero...|
|01:23:55||...and you're being squeezed
to death by the majors.|
|01:23:58||The management may not be the worst scum,
but they put you on this kamikaze course...|
|01:24:04||...and pretty soon everybody
is gonna be scrambling for parachutes.|
|01:24:08||Only there's not enough to go around.|
|01:24:11||Management has them. You don't.|
|01:24:16||If they throw Bluestar to Chapter 11,
which I think they will...|
|01:24:19||...they'll use the bankruptcy laws to break
your unions, and throw you off the property.|
|01:24:25||Oh, come on! With all due respect, what's
to prevent you from doing the same thing?|
|01:24:30||Cos I got a way around all this...|
|01:24:33||...where we can all make money
and make the airline profitable.|
|01:24:38||So what do you say we cut to the chase?|
|01:24:42||I'm asking for a modest 20% across-the-board
wage cut, and seven more hours a month.|
|01:24:50||What kind of time frame?|
|01:24:52||A year. If we're still losing money,
the reduction stands.|
|01:24:55||If we're in the black, I'll return part of the
givebacks, pay goes back to current levels...|
|01:25:00||...and we initiate an employee
profit-sharing programme with stock.|
|01:25:06||- You'll own part of the airline.
- Will you put it in writing?|
|01:25:10||I'll have a letter of agreement
drafted up in two days.|
|01:25:14||What's your marketing strategy?
How will you return us to profitability?|
|01:25:18||Why don't I give Buddy an opportunity
to answer that? Buddy?|
|01:25:21||Thank you, Gordon.|
|01:25:24||First, I want you all to know
that my door will always be open...|
|01:25:27||...because I know from my dad
it's you guys that keep Bluestar flying.|
|01:25:32||What I've come up with here
is a basic three-point plan.|
|01:25:36||One: we modernise. Our computer
software is dogshit. We update it.|
|01:25:40||We squeeze every dollar
out of each mile flown.|
|01:25:43||Don't sell a seat to a guy for 79 bucks
when he's willing to pay 379.|
|01:25:47||Effective inventory management
will increase our load factor by 5-20%.|
|01:25:53||That translates to approximately
$50-200 million in revenues.|
|01:25:58||The point being,
we can beat the majors at a price war.|
|01:26:01||Two: advertising. More, and aggressive.
We attack the majors.|
|01:26:06||Three: expansion. We expand our hubs
to Atlanta, North Carolina and St Louis.|
|01:26:10||And we reorganise all
of our feeder schedules.|
|01:26:13||We gotta think big, guys.
We're going after the majors.|
|01:26:19||Well, cards on the table, guys.
What do you say?|
|01:26:23||Well, if you mean what you say,
I think we're probably in the ballpark.|
|01:26:27||- I guess I can take it to my people.
|01:26:31||You've sketched broad strokes.
I'd like to see the fine print.|
|01:26:34||But I like what I hear so far.|
|01:26:42||I guess if a man lives long enough he gets
to see everything, and I do mean everything.|
|01:26:47||What else you got
in your bag of tricks, Mr Gekko?|
|01:26:52||Frankly, Carl, I can't see giving much more,
but, if you have any suggestions, I'll listen.|
|01:26:59||"There came into Egypt
a Pharaoh who did not know."|
|01:27:02||- I beg your pardon. Is that a proverb?
- No, a prophecy.|
|01:27:06||The rich have been doing it
to the poor since time began.|
|01:27:09||The only difference is
the Egyptians didn't allow unions.|
|01:27:13||I know what this guy's all about-greed.|
|01:27:16||He don't care about Bluestar or the unions.
He's in for the buck. He don't take prisoners.|
|01:27:21||Wait a minute, Dad.|
|01:27:22||Sure. What's worth doing
is worth doing for money.|
|01:27:26||It's a bad bargain if nobody gains.
And if we do this deal, everybody gains.|
|01:27:32||Course, my son worked as a baggage handler
and freight loader for three summers.|
|01:27:36||With those qualifications,
he can run an airline!|
|01:27:40||Fine. Stay with the present management...|
|01:27:43||...dedicated to running you and
your airline into the ground.|
|01:27:46||That "scum" built the company up with one
plane and made something out of nothing.|
|01:27:52||If that's a scum, I'll take it over a rat any day.
You know where I stand. Good night, all.|
|01:28:09||Congratulations, Dad! You did a great job
embarrassing me, not to mention yourself!|
|01:28:15||Save the "workers unite" speech.
I heard it too much growing up!|
|01:28:19||- Oh, yeah?
- You'll get axed. No two ways about it.|
|01:28:22||You and the whole shitty airline
are going down the tubes!|
|01:28:26||And if it isn't Gekko,
it's gonna be some other killer!|
|01:28:34||He's using you, kid. He's got your prick
in his pocket, but you're too blind to see it.|
|01:28:40||No. I see a jealous old machinist...|
|01:28:42||...who can't stand the fact that his son's
more successful than he is!|
|01:28:46||What you see is a guy who never measured
a man's success by the size of his wallet!|
|01:28:52||That's because you never had the guts to go
out into the world and stake your own claim!|
|01:29:06||Boy, if that's the way you feel,
I must've done a really lousy job as a father.|
|01:29:16||As far as being axed, I'm still around...|
|01:29:18||...and I have a responsibility
to the union membership I represent.|
|01:29:22||Your responsibility is to present the facts,
not opinions, to your men.|
|01:29:26||You'll destroy their lives.
Let them decide for themselves.|
|01:29:30||My men will want to know what's
going on, and I won't lie to them!|
|01:29:34||Oh, yeah, your men! Your fuckin' men!|
|01:29:37||All my life your men have
been able to count on you!|
|01:29:40||Why have you never been there for me?!|
|01:29:44||What if you're wrong?|
|01:29:46||What if one day the sun didn't rise in the
east, and for once your compass was off?|
|01:29:52||Would you be willing to wreck
your men's future? My future?|
|01:29:55||Dad, think for a change. Be practical.
I'm asking you. I'm fuckin' begging you!|
|01:30:02||I don't go to sleep with no whore
and I don't wake up with no whore.|
|01:30:06||That's how I live with myself.
I don't know how you do it.|
|01:30:10||I hope I'm wrong about this guy...
but I'll let the men decide for themselves.|
|01:30:15||That much I promise you.|
|01:30:43||You should look at this, Chief.
A guy at Jackson Steinem...|
|01:30:47||...buying large chunks of Teldar Paper
for an offshore account.|
|01:30:57||So, what's the problema?|
|01:30:59||- Do you know what the fuck the problem is?
|01:31:03||- You don't know?
- I don't know.|
|01:31:06||I get a strange call from the SEC.
They asked to see my records.|
|01:31:10||- This is heavy, Bud.
- Hey, hey, hey, relax! Relax, Roger.|
|01:31:15||You're 82M in the account numbers
and I'm the invisible man.|
|01:31:18||Well, that's good for you, Bud.|
|01:31:20||They're always looking for red flags.
Gekko's always getting checked by 'em.|
|01:31:25||They never come up with anything, Rog.|
|01:31:29||Hey... we're invulnerable on this one.|
|01:31:34||I just wanna slow down, Bud.|
|01:31:38||No more lunches, no calls, all right?
We suspend our business, all right?|
|01:31:43||Whatever you want, Rog. It's cool.|
|01:31:47||Excuse me. Hey, Rog, can you come
back in? Bring the cost report.|
|01:31:50||We're starting again.|
|01:31:54||Gekko's asked us into the Bluestar deal.
We're reviewing timetables.|
|01:31:58||- You wanna come?
- He didn't tell me about that.|
|01:32:02||You're only the president of the company.
What the hell do you know anyway, right?|
|01:32:18||Guys, new chief of Bluestar - Bud Fox.|
- Hello, Bud.|
|01:32:23||Guys, what's the problem? It's time to kill.|
|01:32:27||Gekko's got 12% of the stock and climbing.
Plus he's got the unions in his back pocket.|
|01:32:32||Everybody knows the stock's in play.
By next week the street will own Bluestar.|
|01:32:36||Is the bank financing in place?|
|01:32:39||Or are we gonna sit around and have
more of these ridiculous meetings?|
|01:32:43||Our firm committed weeks ago 25%
of the total long-term debt structure.|
|01:32:49||Unless you guys sign
this piece of paper right now...|
|01:32:52||...l'm gonna pull and go to
another bank for the 75.|
|01:32:57||Look, we've got 30 banks ready to participate
in a four-year revolving credit line.|
|01:33:03||We must have your assurance you will pay
back most of the loan in the first 12 months.|
|01:33:10||The only way we can see this happening
is liquidating the hangars and the planes.|
|01:33:16||Can you people guarantee
the liquidation of Bluestar?|
|01:33:20||Guarantee? No sweat!|
|01:33:22||We got the Bleezburgs lined up
to build condos where the hangars are.|
|01:33:26||We lay the airplanes off to the Mexicans,
who are dumb enough to buy 'em!|
|01:33:30||And I got the Texas boys drooling
at my kneecaps for the routes and slots.|
|01:33:34||What's your problem? It's done!|
|01:33:37||Here's the price tags
on the 737s, gates, hangars, routes.|
|01:33:41||We got it nailed right down
to the typewriters.|
|01:33:44||The beauty of this deal
is the overfunded pension.|
|01:33:47||Gekko makes $75m there.|
|01:33:51||50 million buys him the minimum
annuities for 6,000 employees...|
|01:33:56||...and he walks away with the rest.
I figure he'll make... He'll clear $60-70m.|
|01:34:03||Not bad for a month's work.|
|01:34:07||Your boy really did his homework, Fox.|
|01:34:09||And you'll have the shortest executive
career since that Pope that got poisoned.|
|01:34:15||Now he'll really start believing
he's Gekko the Great.|
|01:34:20||- He'd like to change that appointment.
- Hold this.|
|01:34:24||Bud, you can't go in! He's in a meeting!|
|01:34:26||Alex has come up with
an ingenious way for us to...|
|01:34:31||I didn't know we had a meeting today, sport.|
|01:34:34||I didn't, either.
I think we should talk, Gordon.|
|01:34:38||- Would you excuse us for a second?
- Won't you come this way, gentlemen?|
|01:34:43||Thank you, Alex.|
|01:34:48||What do you want?|
|01:34:49||I just found out about
the garage sale at Bluestar.|
|01:34:56||Last night I was reading Rudy
Winnie-the-Pooh and the Honey Pot.|
|01:35:00||You know what happened? He stuck his nose
in the pot once too often, and he got stuck.|
|01:35:07||Maybe you oughta read him Pinocchio.|
|01:35:09||I thought you were gonna turn
Bluestar around, not upside down!|
|01:35:14||- You fuckin' used me!
- You're walking around blind without a cane.|
|01:35:18||A fool and his money are lucky to even meet.|
|01:35:21||- Why do you need to wreck this company?
- Because it's wreckable, all right?!|
|01:35:26||I took another look. I changed my mind.|
|01:35:29||If they lose their jobs,
they got nowhere to go!|
|01:35:32||My father has worked there for 24 years!
I gave him my word!|
|01:35:36||It's all about bucks, kid.|
|01:35:39||The rest is conversation.|
|01:35:41||Buddy, you'll still be president.|
|01:35:44||When the time comes,
you'll parachute out a rich man.|
|01:35:47||With the money you'll make,
your dad's never got to work again.|
|01:35:52||So tell me, Gordon,
when does it all end, huh?|
|01:35:56||How many yachts can you water-ski behind?
How much is enough?|
|01:35:59||It's not a question of enough, pal.
It's a zero-sum game.|
|01:36:03||Somebody wins, somebody loses.|
|01:36:06||Money itself isn't lost or made,
it's simply transferred...|
|01:36:10||...from one perception to another, like magic.|
|01:36:14||This painting here.
I bought it ten years ago for $60,000.|
|01:36:18||I could sell it today for six hundred.
The illusion has become real.|
|01:36:23||And the more real it becomes,
the more desperate they want it.|
|01:36:28||Capitalism at its finest.|
|01:36:31||How much is enough, Gordon?|
|01:36:36||The richest 1% of this country owns half
our country's wealth. Five trillion dollars.|
|01:36:43||One third comes from hard work,
two thirds from inheritance...|
|01:36:47||...interest on interest accumulating
to widows and idiot sons...|
|01:36:50||...and what I do:
stock and real-estate speculation.|
|01:36:56||You got 90% of the American public
with little or no net worth.|
|01:37:01||I create nothing.|
|01:37:07||We make the rules, pal.|
|01:37:09||The news, war, peace, famine, upheaval,
the price of a paperclip.|
|01:37:14||We pick that rabbit out of the hat while
everybody wonders how the hell we did it.|
|01:37:20||You're not naive enough to think we're
living in a democracy, are you, Buddy?|
|01:37:24||It's the free market, and you're part of it.|
|01:37:29||Yeah. You got that killer instinct.|
|01:37:34||Stick around, pal.
I still got a lot to teach you.|
|01:37:39||Oh, Buddy, come on.
I was gonna tell you about it.|
|01:37:43||Calm down, all right?
We'll have dinner tonight. Bring Darien.|
|01:37:46||No, I can't make it tonight.|
|01:37:50||Are you with me?|
|01:37:54||I need to know if you're with me.|
|01:37:58||I'm with you, Gordon.|
|01:38:04||- Natalie, I'll be right there.
- Yes, Mr Gekko.|
- Yeah, Ollie.|
|01:38:18||Tell them I want ziplocked mouths
on the Bluestar deal...|
|01:38:21||...or I'll come down there
and rip out their fuckin' throats.|
|01:39:12||What's going on?|
|01:39:19||I've been played like a grand piano
by the master, Gekko the Great.|
|01:39:25||Today was the big crash...|
|01:39:28||...the liquidation sale.|
|01:39:31||He's gonna carve Bluestar
into little pieces and sell it all off.|
|01:39:41||I was afraid something
like this could happen.|
|01:39:44||I handed it to him on a silver platter.
I told my father...|
|01:39:47||Bud! Bud, it's not your fault.|
|01:39:51||And it's not your decision.|
|01:39:53||I'm not gonna let it happen.|
|01:39:56||Don't cross Gordon. He'll crush you.|
|01:40:00||If Gordon doesn't buy Bluestar, someone else
will. Who's to say they won't do the same?|
|01:40:07||At least I won't be pulling the trigger.|
|01:40:11||Why are you doing this?
You've worked hard to get where you are.|
|01:40:17||We're so close.
You don't wanna throw it all away.|
|01:40:21||Look, I can stay with the firm,
and you're doing fine.|
|01:40:25||We can survive without Gordon Gekko.|
|01:40:35||I'm not looking to just survive.|
|01:40:38||I've been doing that all my life.|
|01:40:41||Cut this self-pity crap, Bud!|
|01:40:44||What the hell's that supposed to mean?|
|01:40:49||It means if you make an enemy of Gordon
Gekko, I can't be there to stand by you.|
|01:40:56||Oh, yeah? Do you really mean that?|
|01:41:00||What did he promise you?
To take you public?|
|01:41:05||Without his money and seal of approval
I'm not such a hot investment any more.|
|01:41:10||- You're just the best money can buy, Darien.
- You're not exactly pure, Bud.|
|01:41:16||You went after Gekko and me with
the same vengeance. Look in the mirror.|
|01:41:20||I'm looking, and I sure don't like what I see.|
|01:41:25||Fair enough. But it's not that simple, Bud.|
|01:41:30||When I was down and had nothing,
it was Gordon who helped me.|
|01:41:34||He got me all my clients-you among them -
and he can take them away from me like that.|
|01:41:41||You may find out that when
you've had money and lost it...|
|01:41:44||...it's worse than never having had it at all.
- Oh, yeah?|
|01:41:48||That is bullshit!|
|01:41:55||You step out that door
and I am changing the locks!|
|01:42:02||You may not believe this, Bud,
but I really do care for you.|
|01:42:08||We would've made a good team.|
|01:42:14||Get the fuck outta here!|
|01:42:31||The market is dead right now.
Even the rich are bitching.|
|01:42:35||The only thing moving is the termites
and cockroaches, and my commission...|
|01:42:39||Look, save the rap, all right?
Just sell the fucker, fast!|
|01:42:51||There he is.
Where you been the last two days?|
|01:42:54||- Janet, get my father on the phone and...
- Your mom's been calling. Your father's...|
|01:42:59||- What happened?
- He had a heart attack, but he's OK.|
|01:43:02||- He's at St John's.
- Oh, Christ!|
|01:43:12||Mom? How is he?|
|01:43:15||He was complaining
about chest pains at work.|
|01:43:17||The next thing I know he's collapsed.
You gotta talk to him.|
|01:43:21||Don't worry, he's a tough old nut.
He's got another 20 years.|
|01:43:25||- He's gonna be fine, Buddy.
- Is he conscious?|
|01:43:48||You're looking younger every day.|
|01:43:52||Didn't I tell you never
to lift a 747 by yourself?|
|01:44:00||You even got me smoking now.|
|01:44:05||It's your second heart attack, Dad.|
|01:44:09||You're pushing your luck.
I hope you know that.|
|01:44:14||I guess I never told you...|
|01:44:16||...but I love you, Dad.|
|01:44:22||I love you so much!|
|01:44:27||I'm sorry... about the things I said.|
|01:44:33||You're the only honest man I know.|
|01:44:40||I got a plan, Dad. I can save the airline.|
|01:44:42||I know you got no reason to believe me,
but you have to trust me, OK?|
|01:44:48||I need to speak to the union members.|
|01:44:52||Can I speak for you?|
|01:44:56||Your words, not mine.|
|01:45:11||I gotta go.|
|01:45:14||I'm proud of you.|
|01:45:26||The stock's at 191/4, and it's going up.|
|01:45:29||Gekko figures, by breaking up Bluestar,
it's 30 bucks a share.|
|01:45:32||He'll buy up to 24 and still
think he's making money.|
|01:45:36||How do you know it'll go up?|
|01:45:38||You don't wanna know, Duncan.
Let's just say I have some friends.|
|01:45:43||OK. What happens now?|
|01:45:46||When it hits 23, you go
to Gekko and lower the boom.|
|01:45:49||When he learns he has no union
concessions, he'll jump ship.|
|01:45:53||Yeah, but who'll buy then, and what's
to prevent some other shark devouring us?|
|01:46:01||We have an appointment to see Mr Wildman.|
|01:46:04||Sir Lawrence, or can I call you Larry?|
|01:46:08||What would you say to owning Bluestar
Airlines, with union concessions...|
|01:46:12||...at $18 a share...|
|01:46:14||...and, in the process, hanging
Gordon Gekko out in the wind to twist?|
|01:46:19||I might be very interested. Why you, mate?|
|01:46:23||What's a bloke like you
doing mixed up with Gekko?|
|01:46:27||Let's just say that me and Mr Gekko
have a serious conflict of interest.|
|01:46:33||But we all wanna see this airline work.|
|01:46:36||These figures show that it can.|
|01:46:40||You're prepared to take
these large salary cuts?|
|01:46:44||We are, but we want a contract
agreement that's ironclad.|
|01:46:48||So if you buy it, you can't break it up.|
|01:46:54||I'm still listening.|
|01:47:02||Oh, hi. Say, why don't you
get the hell out of my office?|
|01:47:06||I know I've been a schmuck lately.
I want to apologise.|
|01:47:10||You've been a real schmuck lately.
So go thou and sin no more.|
|01:47:14||I wanna make it up to you.|
|01:47:18||Bluestar. Put all your clients in it.|
|01:47:29||We are back in business on Bluestar.|
|01:47:36||Bluestar, Mr Mannheim.
Put all your clients in it. It's gonna move.|
|01:47:41||I don't know where you get
your information, son, but I don't like it.|
|01:47:46||The main thing about money, Bud...
it makes you do things you don't wanna do.|
|01:47:55||Marty, a favour. 200,000 shares Bluestar at
191/2. Can you position it in an equity fund?|
|01:48:01||- The Chronicle is on seven.
- Hold, Marty.|
|01:48:05||Listen, Blue Horseshoe
loves Bluestar Airlines. Got it?|
|01:48:10||- Got it.
- Right. Marty, you still there?|
|01:48:13||Bluestar's in play. Let's check it out.|
|01:48:25||- 191/4, 3/8. 5,000.
- 3/8 at 10,000.|
|01:48:31||I do love it so.|
|01:48:35||Gordon, I see it at 215/8.
I don't know what to make of it.|
|01:48:38||The word is out, pal!
Your union buddies are talking.|
|01:48:43||You get me in at a 45-degree angle.
All the way in.|
|01:48:46||You slash and burn, you buy everything
in sight up to 22, then call me.|
|01:48:52||When I get hold of whoever leaked this, I'll
tear his eyes out and suck his fuckin' skull!|
|01:49:07||- Stock's going to Pluto.
- Start unloading.|
|01:49:09||- What? Sell?
- Dump it! Now! Dump it all!|
|01:49:12||- Where's Lou?
- Right over there.|
|01:49:15||Ken? Marvin. Jackson Steinem.|
|01:49:18||Dump this baby. Take the money and run.
We're getting out.|
|01:49:22||It's gotta be a big hitter.|
|01:49:24||There's some people from Bluestar
demanding to see you.|
|01:49:27||- What the hell do they want?
- I'd be happy to tell you.|
|01:49:31||We know what you're up to, Gekko,
and you can go straight to hell!|
|01:49:36||No way you're gonna break up our airline.|
|01:49:38||- If that's my plan, it's the first I've heard of it.
- Would you put that in writing?|
|01:49:43||We have an agreement,
which I expect you to honour.|
|01:49:47||- Then you better have a pilot's licence.
- Don't worry, the engines won't fall out.|
|01:49:52||But those reservations can get screwed up
if we don't pay attention.|
|01:49:56||Baggage for St Petersburg
could wind up in Pittsburgh.|
|01:49:59||Look, somebody else
wants to buy your airline.|
|01:50:02||You wanna be gobbled up
by Attila the Hun, you be my guest!|
|01:50:07||We'll take our chances.|
|01:50:09||Nice to see you, Gekko!|
|01:50:16||Fox says Bluestar just hit 23.
What do you want him to do?|
|01:50:22||Sell it all.|
|01:50:25||- What the hell. So we only make 10 million.
- Sell it. Yes, all of it.|
|01:50:31||10,000 at 7/8!|
|01:50:33||At 7/8, sold!|
|01:50:36||Frank, Frank, Frank, Frank, for chrissake!|
|01:50:40||Bob, we're in big trouble on BST.
You gotta get out now.|
|01:50:45||Another 30,000. Out!|
|01:50:46||Gekko's selling. There's not many takers.
The stock is plummeting.|
|01:50:50||I guess I'll have to carry him
a few rounds before he drops.|
|01:50:56||Don't make a big deal of it. Buy it lightly
on the way down. When it hits 18, buy it all.|
|01:51:03||Piece of cake, Larry.|
|01:51:09||8,000 at 18.|
|01:51:13||What is offered at 18?|
|01:51:16||300,000... 300,000 at 18!|
|01:51:19||18 for 500,000!|
|01:51:24||- I'll sell you 50!
- I'll take it!|
|01:51:34||- There's gotta be a way outta this.
- Sure. Why don't you dial 911?|
|01:51:37||Fox is on four.|
|01:51:40||Where the hell are you? I am losing millions.
You sure as hell better get me out of this...|
|01:51:46||...or the only job you'll have
on this street is sweeping it!|
|01:51:51||You once told me, don't get emotional
about stock, Gordon. Don't.|
|01:51:55||The bid is 161/2 and going down.
As your broker, I advise you to take it.|
|01:52:00||Yeah? Well, you take it! Right in the ass,
you fuckin' scumbag cocksucker!|
|01:52:06||It's two minutes to close, Gordon.
What do you wanna do? Decide.|
|01:52:23||The big Wall Street story today
was Bluestar Airlines.|
|01:52:28||Fuelled by takeover rumours, the stock
soared to an all-time high of 241/8.|
|01:52:33||When rumours later surfaced
that the takeover was unfounded...|
|01:52:37||...buyers ran for cover and the stock
plummeted to 161/2 before closing at 17.|
|01:52:44||Then, amidst all the scuttlebutt,
another rumble shook the street.|
|01:52:48||Raider Sir Lawrence Wildman has stepped in
and bought a substantial block of Bluestar...|
|01:52:54||...and will announce a deal tomorrow
that includes the support of the unions.|
|01:52:59||We talked with a leading
stock market analyst...|
|01:53:02||...in order to understand the ramifications...|
|01:53:05||Son of a bitch!|
|01:53:18||Smile, Carolyn. There's justice in the world.|
|01:53:35||Good morning, folks.|
|01:53:50||Did somebody die?|
|01:54:02||Morning, Chuckie. Morning, Lou.|
|01:54:07||Bud, I like you.|
|01:54:10||Just remember something.|
|01:54:18||Man looks in the abyss.|
|01:54:21||There's nothing staring back at him.|
|01:54:23||At that moment, man finds his character.|
|01:54:27||And that is what keeps him out of the abyss.|
|01:54:32||I think I understand.|
|01:54:45||Janet, get my father, will you?|
|01:54:51||He just came in. I'll call you back.|
|01:54:58||I guess you're not here to open an IRA.|
|01:55:01||Henry Patterson, Postal Inspection Service.
Mr Ebenhopper, US Attorney's office.|
|01:55:07||Evan Morrissey, Securities and
Exchange Enforcement office.|
|01:55:10||You're under arrest for conspiracy
to commit securities fraud...|
|01:55:14||...and for violating
the Insider Traders Sanction Act.|
|01:55:17||The minute I laid eyes on you,
I knew you were no good.|
|01:55:21||You have the right to remain silent
and refuse to answer questions.|
|01:55:25||Anything you do say
may be used against you.|
|01:55:27||You have the right to consult an attorney...|
|01:55:30||...and to have an attorney present
during any questioning.|
|01:56:02||So long, Carolyn.|
|01:56:20||Sandbagged me on Bluestar, huh?|
|01:56:24||I guess you think you taught the teacher
a lesson, that the tail can wag the dog, huh?|
|01:56:33||Well, let me clue you in, pal.|
|01:56:35||The ice is melting right underneath your feet.|
|01:56:42||You think you could have gotten this far
this fast with anybody else?|
|01:56:46||And dickin' someone like Darien?|
|01:56:48||No. You'd be cold-calling widows and
dentists to buy fuckin' dogshit stock!|
|01:56:54||I took you in!|
|01:56:59||I opened doors for you.|
|01:57:01||I showed you how the system works,
the value of information, how to get it!|
|01:57:06||Fulham Oil, Brant Resources, Geodynamics!|
|01:57:09||And this is how you fuckin'
pay me back, you cockroach!|
|01:57:14||I gave you Darien!|
|01:57:17||I gave you your manhood!
I gave you everything!|
|01:57:33||You coulda been one of
the great ones, Buddy.|
|01:57:37||I look at you... and I see myself.|
|01:57:46||I don't know.|
|01:57:49||I guess I realised that...|
|01:57:52||...I'm just Bud Fox.|
|01:57:56||As much as I wanted to be Gordon Gekko...|
|01:58:00||...I'll always be Bud Fox.|
|01:58:48||I showed you how the system works,
the value of information, how to get it!|
|01:58:53||Fulham Oil, Brant Resources...|
|01:58:58||You did the right thing, Bud.|
|01:59:08||You told the truth
and gave the money back.|
|01:59:11||All things considered in this
cockamamie world, you're shooting par.|
|01:59:15||You helped save the airline,
and they'll remember you for it.|
|01:59:18||That's right. Think about the job
at Bluestar that Wildman offered you.|
|01:59:23||Dad, I'm going to jail and you know it.|
|01:59:25||Yeah, well... maybe that's the price, son.|
|01:59:29||It's gonna be hard on you...|
|01:59:31||...but maybe in a kind of screwed-up way it's
the best thing that coulda happened to you.|
|01:59:36||Stop going for the easy buck
and produce something with your life.|
|01:59:40||Create, instead of living off
the buying and selling of others.|
|01:59:50||We'll park the car and catch up with you.|
