MALE GUARD 1:
One silk handkerchief.

One necktie.

One watch.

One ring.

One gold money clip with no money in it.

And one mobile phone.

MALE GUARD 2:
Fifty cents a day,

minus what you spent inside,

and a train ticket to the Big Apple.

Good luck, Gekko, and don't come back.

JAKE:
You want to know

what the mother of all bubbles was?

It came out of nowhere. By chance.

MALE GUARD 3:
How many you got, Mac?

MALE GUARD 4:
Five.

They called it the Cambrian Explosion.

It happened around 530 million years ago.

MALE GUARD 3:
Open the gate!

And over the next 70, 80 million years,

the rate of evolution accelerated so fast

that we came along.

The human race.

They still can't explain how that happened,

except that it happened.

MAN:
Here he is!

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

(HIP-HOP MUSIC PLAYING)

Daddy!

(WHISTLES)

Some people say it was by chance,

others, design.

But who really knows?

(HOMEPLAYING)

The dimming of the light

makes the picture clearer

It's just an old photograph

There's nothing to hide

When the world was just beginning

I memorized a face so it's not forgotten

I hear the wind whistlin'

Come back anytime

And we'll mix our lives together

Heaven knows

What keeps mankind alive

Connecting

To places we have known

I'm looking for a home

Where the wheels are turning

Home

Why I keep returning

Home

With our bodies touching

Home

And the cameras watching

Home

Will infect whatever you do

We're home

Comes to life from out of the blue

- (JAKE GROANS)

- Stop sleeping.

You mean "wake up."

"Wake up" is positive.

"Stop sleeping" is a negative.

Either way,

it's not my favorite part of the day.

It's the best part of the day.

I feel bad for anybody who feels that way.

It means their day can't get any better.

(WINNIE EX CLAIMS)

You go to bed too late.

You don't sleep enough.

What's going on with you today?

WINNIE:
Did I tell you, or did you forget?

I'm going to Washington for the week.

Yeah. New site, right?

WINNIE:
We're launching in 10 days,

so the whole site's down

starting tomorrow.

What are all those angry liberals

going to do without their daily fix, baby?

You're just as liberal as they are,

Mr. Green Energy.

No, no, no.

The only green is money, honey.

You're so Wall Street, it makes me sick.

- Baby, come here.

- No. What did I ever see in you?

- Come here.

- No.

MARIA ON TV:
My next guest,

Gordon Gekko,

was one of the biggest names

on Wall Street in the '80s

before he went to prison

for insider trading and securities fraud.

He's out with a new book,

and it is a shocker, believe me.

It is called Is Greed Good?

The man himself is here with us.

Gordon, good to have you on the program.

GORDON:
Thank you, Maria.

It's nice to be out.

- Turn it off.

- One sec.

And I must tell you,

your show is a big, big hit in the can.

(STAMMERS) Oh. You watched it in prison?

Your show?

Me and a whole lot of others.

MARIA:
You wrote the book in prison?

GORDON:
I did. I outlined my drafts...

(REMOTE CLATTERING)

I'm taking a shower.

(LIFE IS LONG PLAYING)

Everybody says that the living is easy

I can barely see

'Cause my head's in the way

Tigers walk behind me

They are to remind me that

I'm lost, but I'm not afraid

Soul to soul

A kiss and a sigh

Sawed in half...

See you next week.

Good luck in Washington.

People on the outside

I remember sweet times

This old rose is always in bloom

(CELL PHONE RINGING)

- Hello?

- DR. MASTERS:
Jacob.

Dr. Masters.

Good morning, sir.

Don't you get any sleep?

Jacob, it happened.

As close as we've come to burn yet.

JAKE:
Really? How many lasers?
