  • The real CMoA is that Eli needs him to buy the holdout's land, and he says, "First, I want you to say 'I am a false prophet, and God is a superstition.'" And a moment later, when he does. And then it turns out he already drained the oil from the land, in other words, "drinking his milkshake".

  • The scene where he sees his business rivals in the restaurant qualifies. This is after he's proved them wrong, and his pipeline is making millions. They try to ignore him, but he proceeds to psychotically, publicly humiliate them.
