Wall Street reputation

11 Jan 2010

I was watching the movie Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 over the weekend, site and was amused by one exchange that I thought perfectly captured the perception those that work on Wall Street.

Mayor of NYC (James Gandolfini): What kind of guy would you expect to take an ass model to Iceland for the weekend?
Deputy Mayor (John Benjamin Hickey): A Wall Street guy.

And John Travolta was a terrible bad guy, decease just not believable. I cringed every time he said “motherf*cker”, because each one sounded like it was the first time he had ever uttered the word and was practicing it in front of a mirror.
