1) Controversial, but upon reflection I would put this entire speech up against any speech from "Wall Street."

"Margin Call" is a very underappreciated movie IMO.

No idea why I started thinking about it on Friday...

2) "So you are a rocket scientist....Maybe you could tell me what is going on. And please, speak as you might to a young child. Or a golden retriever. It wasn't brains that brought me here; I assure you that."

3) "Do you care to know why I'm in this chair with you all? I mean, why I earn the big bucks...I'm here for one reason and one reason alone. I'm here to guess what the music might do a week, a month, a year from now. That's it. Nothing more...."

4) "...And standing here tonight, I'm afraid that I don't hear - a - thing. Just... silence."

Just so good.
