Gordon Gekko: Stop telling lies about me and I'll stop telling the truth about you.
Gordon Gekko: Payback. Except I'm not in that business anymore - because the one thing I learned in jail is that money is not the prime asset in life. Time is.
Gordon Gekko: Hey, hey, stay positive, pal.
Gordon Gekko: Most people, they lose, they whine and quit.
Gordon Gekko: But you got to be there for the turns.
Gordon Gekko: Everybody's got good luck, everybody's got bad luck.
Gordon Gekko: Don't run when you lose. Don't whine when it hurts.
Gordon Gekko: It's like the first grade, Jerry.
Gordon Gekko: Nobody likes a crybaby.
Gordon Gekko: Someone reminded me I once said "Greed is good". Now it seems it's legal. Because everyone is drinking the same Kool Aid.
Bud Fox: So, does Blue Horseshoe still love Anacott Steel?

Jacob Moore: How's your day goin'?
Lewis Zabel: I told you- good day I'm okay, bad day I'm okay. Stop bugging me on my feelings. They're irrelevant.
Gordon Gekko: It's not about the money. It's about the game between people.
Gordon Gekko: I tell you,the government's worse than a wife.

Gordon Gekko: Now they're working on getting the other half.
Gordon Gekko: They took my life - and when I got out - who's waiting for me? Nobody!
Gordon Gekko: You know what they say, "Parents are the bone on which children sharpen their teeth."
Gordon Gekko: I don't wanna sound like a rooster taking credit for the dawn, but turning $100 million into $1.1 billion in this market, takes some brains, right?
Gordon Gekko: My guys are good.
Gordon Gekko: And it's no wonder our new fund is over-subscribed.
Gordon Gekko: But for you, I'm gonna initiate a third fund.
Gordon Gekko: Because, frankly, Julie, I couldn't be more excited about this. To finally be in business with you and your firm.
Julie Steinhardt: And us with you, Gekko.
Gordon Gekko: Yeah.
Jacob Moore: If it weren't for people who took risks, where would we be in this world?
Prison Guard: [First line; Gekko is being released from prison and his belongings are being returned to him] A silk handkerchief. A tie. A watch. A ring. A gold money clip, without money... and a mobile phone.
