Dr. Jacobs: Marlin?
Chris Varick: [Another broker turns on the speaker phone ] Right, his my father, so my associate tells me you're interested in one of our stocks?
Dr. Jacobs: Yes, MSC sounds like it might be interesting
Chris Varick: Might be? "Might be" doesn't sell stock at the rate MSC is going for, we're talking a very high volume here
Dr. Jacobs: Well, I still have to run it by my people
Chris Varick: That's great doc if you want to miss another opportunity and watch your colleagues get rich doing clinical trials that don't buy a share and hang up the phone
Dr. Jacobs: Hold on I didn't say that I just want to talk about this more
Chris Varick: Honestly doc I don't have the time this stock is blowing up right now the whole firm is going nuts, hold on let me open the door to my office
[signals everyone to yell and make noise]
Chris Varick: See that doc? That's my trading floor now I have a million calls to make to a million doctors who are in the no, I can't walk you through this I'm sorry
[waiting and expecting a response]
Dr. Jacobs: Ok, let's do this
Chris Varick: Since you're a new account I can't go any higher than two thousand shares I'm sorry
Dr. Jacobs: Two thousand shares? Are you nuts? That's way beyond what I was thinking, Jesus! I'm curious why can't you sell me any more than that?
Chris Varick: We'd like to establish a relationship with our clients on something small before we get to the more serious trades, let me show you couple percentage points then we can talk about doing future business
Dr. Jacobs: That sounds good, give me the two thousand shares
Chris Varick: Done, I promise we'll swing for fences on the next one, let me put my secretary on and she'll take down your info, do you want that confirmation sent to your office or your mansion? It was a pleasure doing business

Seth Davis: [referring to the amount of stock he sold to Dr. Jacobs ] Why'd you put a max on his buy?
Greg Weinstein: [to Greg] You didn't tell him how it works?
Greg Weinstein: His trainee he doesn't need to know initial sell limits
Greg Weinstein: [to Seth] Make sure he shows you the ropes his too busy calling his bookie, fucking Hebrews always looking out for themselves and not the trainees, the reason I capped him is in case if his a piker, so we're go ahead and front the money for this sale and if he doesn't send the check I'm the one holding the bag follow me?
Seth Davis: Right
Chris Varick: Last month a kid a Jim's team wrote a million dollar ticket the stock was down three and a half points by settlement the kid took a quarter of a million dollar hit, do you know how much that hurts? Besides the first sale is what's appetite, if his a whale, which looks like he is
Seth Davis: Right
Chris Varick: So put him a daily measureable rip
Seth Davis: What's a "rip"?
Chris Varick: A "rip",is a commission that's why we work here we make huge rips, a two dollar rip which is unheard of anywhere on Wall Street, which means we're walking away with two dollars of every share we sell, its real money and opportunity
Seth Davis: How does Michael afford that?
Chris Varick: Couldn't tell you
Seth Davis: Ok
Chris Varick: If his doing it, his making money from it, and the point is service your client right and he'll be back for more show him a three percentage return and he'll trust you to watch his kids for the weekend

Chris Varick: [Waiting outside Greg's house in Chris's Range Rover] Fucking guy's probably got more rooms than his ever been in
Seth Davis: I was wondering, do you ever wonder how we make the rips we do? That we make rips that pay out more than any other major firm?
Chris Varick: You're kidding me right? That's the wrong question to be asking, the only thing you should be worried about tonight is how you're going to get laid
Seth Davis: I'm serious, FCC regulations state that maximum rip allowed is five percent allowed and we're making four times that
Chris Varick: You just passed your Series Seven and now you're an inspector? Aren't you happy with the way things are going?
Seth Davis: Yeah I am, I'm just curious, you're not curious?
Chris Varick: Not at all, I like being a millionaire, you will too
