Wall Street Movie Quotes (1987)

Michael Douglas (Gordon Gekko): Lunch is for wimps.

Martin Sheen (Carl Fox): Stop going for the easy buck and start producing something with your life. Create, instead of living off the buying and selling of others.

Michael Douglas (Gekko): The richest one percent 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, stock and real estate speculation. It's bullshit. You got ninety percent of the American public out there with little or no net worth. I create nothing. I own.

Charlie Sheen (Bud Fox): How much is enough?
Michael Douglas (Gekko): 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 transferred from one perception to another.

Michael Douglas (Gekko): The point is ladies and gentlemen that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of it's forms - greed for life, for money, knowledge - has marked the upward surge of mankind and greed - you mark my words - will not only save Teldar Paper but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you.

Wall Street Trivia
Michael Douglas won the Best Actor Academy Award for his role as Gordon Gekko.

Did you know?
That although Douglas won an Oscar for his performance, he was not first choice. Both Richard Gere and Warren Beatty were preferred.

Tom Cruise wanted the role of Bud Fox but Oliver Stone had committed Charlie Sheen. So he gave Cruise a consolation prize - "Born on the Fourth of July."

When Harry Met Sally Movie Quotes (1989)

Billy Crystal (Harry Burns): You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Meg Ryan (Sally Albright): Why not?
Billy Crystal (Harry): What I'm saying is - and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form - is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.
Meg Ryan (Sally): That's not true. I have a number of men friends and there is no sex involved.
Billy Crystal (Harry): No you don't.
Meg Ryan (Sally): : Yes I do.
Billy Crystal (Harry): No you don't.
Meg Ryan (Sally): Yes I do.
Billy Crystal (Harry): You only think you do.
Meg Ryan (Sally): You say I'm having sex with these men without my knowledge?
Billy Crystal (Harry):: No, what I'm saying is they all WANT to have sex with you.
Meg Ryan (Sally): They do not!
Billy Crystal (Harry): Do too.
Meg Ryan (Sally): They do not.
Billy Crystal (Harry): Do too.
Meg Ryan (Sally): How do you know?
Billy Crystal (Harry):Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.
Meg Ryan (Sally): So, you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?
Billy Crystal (Harry): No. You pretty much want to nail 'em too.
Meg Ryan (Sally): What if THEY don't want to have sex with YOU?
Billy Crystal (Harry): Doesn't matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.
Meg Ryan (Sally): Well, I guess we're not going to be friends then.
Billy Crystal (Harry): I guess not.
Meg Ryan (Sally): That's too bad. You were the only person I knew in New York.

Billy Crystal (Harry): Had my dream again where I'm making love, and the Olympic judges are watching. I'd nailed the compulsories, so this is it, the finals. I got a 9.8 from the Canadians, a perfect 10 from the Americans, and my mother, disguised as an East German judge, gave me a 5.6. Must have been the dismount.

Billy Crystal (Harry):There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance.
Meg Ryan (Sally): Which one am I?
Billy Crystal (Harry): You're the worst kind. You're high maintenance but you think you're low maintenance.

Meg Ryan (Sally): Most women at one time or another have faked it.
Billy Crystal (Harry): Well, they haven't faked it with me.
Meg Ryan (Sally): How do you know?
Billy Crystal (Harry): Because I know.
Meg Ryan (Sally): Oh. Right. Thats right. I forgot. You're a man.
Billy Crystal (Harry): What was that supposed to mean?
Meg Ryan (Sally): Nothing. Its just that all men are sure it never happened to them and all women at one time or other have done it, so you do the math.

When Harry Met Sally Trivia
Did you know?
That while there are actors recounting them, the married people's stories are real.

It was Meg Ryan's idea to do the orgasm scene.

The lady who says, "I'll have whatever she's having" after the orgasm scene, is Rob Reiner's mother.
