* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: During their final confrontation, Gekko [[spoiler:Gekko gives Bud a harsh one:one]]:



-->'''Gekko''': ''[still smug]'' You sandbagged me on Bluestar, huh? ''[chuckles again]'' I guess you think you taught the teacher a lesson, that the tail can wag the dog, huh? ''[sighs while crushing his cigarette with his foot]'' Well let me clue you in, pal. The ''ice'' is melting right underneath your feet. ''[Suddenly punches Bud and grabs him by the collar.]'' Did you think you could've gotten this far this fast with anybody else, huh? You think you'd be out there dicking someone like Darien? No. You'd be cold-calling widows and dentists trying to buy 20 shares of some fucking dog-shit stock. I took you in. ''[hits Fox a 2nd time]'' '''A NOBODY!''' ''[hits him again]'' I opened the doors for you. I showed you how the system works. The value of information, how to '''get it!''' Fulham Oil, Brant Resources, Geodynamics. And this is how you fucking ''pay me back,'' '''you cockroach!''' ''[Gekko hits him a 4th time, but the force of the hit knocks Bud into the ground.]'' '''''[[SuddenlyShouting I GAVE YOU DARIEN! I GAVE YOU YOUR MANHOOD, I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING!]]''''' ''[Gekko calms down, then tosses a handkerchief to Bud to clean off the blood on his lip.]'' You could have been one of the great ones, Buddy. I look at you, and I see myself. Why?\\
'''Bud''': ''[gets up]'' I don't know. I guess I realized ''I'm just Bud Fox''. ''[firmly]'' As much as I wanted to be Gordon Gekko, I'll ''always'' be Bud Fox. ''[Bud tosses back the handkerchief and walks away, leaving Gekko to ponder in thought.]''

* SuddenlyShouting[=/=]PrecisionFStrike: Near the climax, Gekko dumps his remaining interest in Bluestar, only to learn on the evening news that the shares have been picked up at a lower price by Sir Lawrence Wildman, who will become the airline's new majority shareholder. Gekko's reaction changes from confusion to extreme rage as he smashes a paperweight in anger when he realizes that this was engineered by Bud Fox. Cue VillainousBreakdown below.

'''Gordon''': ''[sarcastially]'' It's not a question of enough, pal. It's a zero-sum game. Somebody wins, somebody loses. Money itself isn't lost or made, it's simply, uh, transferred from one perception to another, like magic. This painting here, I bought it 10 years ago for $60,000. I could sell it today for 600. The illusion has become more real, and the more real it becomes, the more desperate they want it. Capitalism at its finest.\\

-->'''Gordon''': Last night I was reading Rudy about the story of Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Pot. You know what happened? Stuck his nose once too often, and he got stuck.\\
-->'''Bud''': Maybe you ought to read him Pinocchio. I thought that you were gonna turn Bluestar around, not ''upside-down''. You fucking used me!\\
-->'''Gordon''': Well you're walking around blind without a cane, pal. A fool and his money are lucky to get together in the first place.
-->'''Bud''': But why ''do you'' need to wreck this company?!
-->'''Gordon''': Because '''[[SuddenlyShouting IT'S WRECKABLE, allright?!]]''' I took another look at it and I changed my mind.\\
-->'''Bud''': If these people lose their jobs, they got nowhere to go. My father has worked there for 24 years. I gave him my word!\\
-->'''Gordon''': It's all about bucks, kid, and the rest is conversation. Hey Buddy, you're still going to be president, allright! And when the time comes, you're going to parachute out a rich man. And with the money you're gonna make, your dad's never gonna have to work another day in his life.\\
-->'''Bud''': So tell me, Gordon - when does it all end, huh? How many yachts can you waterski behind? How much is ''ENOUGH''?\\
-->'''Gordon''': ''[sarcastially]'' It's not a question of enough, pal. It's a zero-sum game. Somebody wins, somebody loses. Money itself isn't lost or made, it's simply, uh, transferred from one perception to another, like magic. This painting here, I bought it 10 years ago for $60,000. I could sell it today for 600. The illusion has become more real, and the more real it becomes, the more desperate they want it. Capitalism at its finest.\\
-->'''Bud''': How much is enough, Gordon?\\
-->'''Gordon''': ''[chuckles]'' The richest 1% 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, is stock and real estate speculation. It's bullshit. You got 90% of the American public out there with little or no net worth. I create ''nothing.'' I own. We make the rules, pal. The news, war, peace, famine, upheaval, the price per paper clip. We pick that rabbit out of the hat while everybody sits out there wondering how the hell we did it. Now you're not naive enough to think we're living in a democracy, are you, Buddy? It's the free market, and you're a part of it. ''[smugly]'' Yeah, you've got that killer instinct. ''[chuckles]'' Stick around pal, I've still got a lot to teach you.\\
-->'''Bud''': Obviously.\\
-->'''Gordon''': Aw Buddy, come on, look I was gonna tell you about it, allright? Calm down, allright. We'll go up my apartment tonight, have a little dinner, you bring Darien.\\
-->'''Bud''': No, I can't.., I can't make it tonight.\\
-->'''Gordon''': Hey Buddy, are you ''with me?'' I need to know if you're with me.\\
-->'''Bud''': I'm with you, Gordon.\\
-->'''Gordon''': ''[Gordon pats on his back]'' Natalie, I'll be right there. ''[grabs a phone]''\\
-->'''Natalie''': Yes, Mr. Gekko.
-->'''Ollie''': ''[over the phone]'' Yeah?\\
