Greenspan: You want answers?
mishedlo: I think I'm entitled to them.
Greenspan: You want answers?
mishedlo: I want the truth!
Greenspan: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has markets. And those markets have to be guarded by men with dollars. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Patron? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Refco and you curse the Treasury. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Refco's death, while tragic, probably saved money. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves money...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me in those markets. You need me in those markets.
We use words like honor, code, loyalty...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use 'em as a punchline.
I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very liquidity I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a dollar bill and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!
mishedlo: Did you order the coupon pass?
Greenspan: (quietly) I did the job you sent me to do.
mishedlo: Did you order the coupon pass?
Greenspan: You're goddamn right I did!!
