* I know Louis' goes off the rails once he no longer has luxury. But why doesn't he just ''search'' for another job. He's a graduate of '''Harvard''', and he's still pretty young. He could easily go to a library, type up a resume, land an interview. He has excellent social skills.

*** The other traders would have spent far less initially than the Dukes, and then Winthorpe and Valentine's plan involved buying contracts at huge profits from the other traders except the Dukes' agent. While the Dukes were ruined by this, the other traders would have made losses, but not ruinous ones.

*** The costume seemed like a desperate improvisation. That '[[AssholeVictim poor chap]]' had the protagonists isolated at gunpoint and was saying "[[PreMortemOneLiner Your interference ends here]]." Then the gorilla knocked him out, so to prevent him from coming after them they bound him up in the gorilla costume. Locking him in the cage may have been to further keep him from coming after them, they weren't inclined to be generous as he'd been about to kill them and/or RuleOfFunny.

*** The costume seemed like a desperate improvisation. That '[[AssholeVictim poor chap]]' had the protagonists isolated at gunpoint and so he was going to kill four innocent people just so his bosses could stay at the top of the corporate ladder, according to his saying "[[PreMortemOneLiner Your interference ends here]]." Then the gorilla knocked him out, so to prevent him from coming after them they bound him up in the gorilla costume. Locking him in the cage may have been to further keep him from coming after them, they weren't inclined to be generous as he'd been about to kill them and/or RuleOfFunny.

** The company's assets, including the payroll, were probably auctioned off rather than liquidated.

** The company's assets, including the payroll, were probably auctioned off rather than liquidated.liquidated, so the only way other people would be harmed is if whoever brought the company from the Dukes caused it.

* Randolph and Mortimer Duke have portraits of then-President UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan and former president UsefulNotes/RichardNixon on their desks, respectively. Each represents the brothers' personalities. Neither one particularly cares about the lower class, but Randolph has an appearance of kindliness towards the poor (Reagan), whereas Mortimer is more upfront about his disdain (Nixon).
