Movie Quote of the Week – 7/17/15

Answer to MWL 7/15/15: Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) – Wall Street

The new law of evolution in corporate America seems to be “survival of the unfittest.” Well in my book you either do it right or you get eliminated. In the last seven deals that I’ve been involved with there were 2.5 million stock holders who have made a pre-tax profit of twelve billion dollars. [Crowd applause] Thank you. I am not a destroyer of companies. I am a liberator of them. 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 its forms: greed for life, for money, for love, 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.  -Gordon Gekko

Thanks for everyone’s submissions and congratulations to the following people for answering correctly:

Carly (Carly Hearts Movies)
Sherise (The Girl That Loved to Review)
Rob (Movierob)
Jackie
Robbin (Robbin’s Realm)

1/2 imaginary point to Cindy (Cindy Brachman), right character but included the wrong movie.
