Jordan Belfort[edit]

  • [voiceover] I'm a former member of the middle class raised by two accountants in a tiny apartment in Bayside, Queens. The year I turned 26, as the head of my own brokerage firm, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week.
  • On a daily basis, I consume enough drugs to sedate Manhattan, Long Island, and Queens for a month.
  • I take Quaaludes 10 to 15 times a day for my "back pain," Adderall to stay focused, Xanax to take the edge off, pot to mellow me out, cocaine to wake me back up again, and morphine, well, because it's awesome.
  • Her pussy was like heroin to me. And it wasn't just about the sex either. Naomi and I got along. I mean, we had similar interests and shit.
  • An IPO is an initial public offering. It's a first time a stock is offered for sale to the general population. Now as the firm taking the company public, we set the initial sales price, then sold those shares right back to our friends. The i- Look, I-I know you're not following what I'm saying anyway, right? That's-that's okay. That doesn't matter. The real question is this: was all this legal? Absolutely fucking not. But we were making more money than we knew what do with.
  • Let me tell you something. There's no nobility in poverty. I've been a rich man, and I've been a poor man. And I choose rich every fucking time.
  • This right here is the land of opportunity. This is America. This is my home! The show goes on! [quoting from Norma Rae] They're gonna need to send in the National Guard to take me out, 'cause I ain't going nowhere!
  • FYI boys, Danielle has promised to use this $10,000 for breast implants. She's already got C-cups, but now she wants FUCKIN' DOUBLE D'S!
  • [voiceover] Donnie and I were going out on our own. And the first thing we needed was brokers. Guys with sales experience. So I recruited some of my hometown boys: Sea Otter, who sold meat and weed; Chester, who sold tires and weed; and Robbie, who sold anything he could get his hands on, mostly weed.
  • [about his affair with Naomi] I felt horrible. Three days later, I filed for a divorce and moved Naomi into the apartment.
  • Look, I knew these guys weren't like Harvard MBAs. Robbie Feinberg, the Pinhead, took five years to finish high school. Alden Kupferberg, the Sea Otter, didn't even graduate. Chester Ming, the depraved China man, thought jujitsu was in Israel. Smartest of the bunch was Nicky Koskoff. He actually went to law school. I called him Rugrat because of his piece of shit hairpiece. Still, give them to me young, hungry, and stupid, and in no time, I'll make 'em rich.
  • [voiceover] I'm not ashamed to admit it. When we arrived to prison, I was absolutely terrified. But I needn't have been. See for a brief fleeting moment, I'd forgotten I was rich and I lived in a place where everything was for sale. Wouldn't you like to learn how to sell it?
  • [last lines] Sell me this pen.
  • So you listen to me and you listen well. Are you behind on you credit card bills? Good, pick up the phone and start dialing! Is your landlord ready to evict you? Good! Pick up the phone and start dialing! Does your girlfriend think you're fucking worthless loser? Good! Pick up the phone and start dialing! I want you to deal with your problems by becoming rich!
  • The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.

Donnie Azoff[edit]

  • [peeing on his subpoena] Fuck you, U.S.A. Fuck you, U.S.A. Fuck you! Fuck you!
  • [to Max] A rich one!
  • [Shouting at an employee for cleaning a fish bowl] On new issue day?! On cocksucking motherfucking new issue day?! This is what you do!

Patrick Denham[edit]

  • Let me give you some legal advice: Shut the fuck up!


Jordan: [to the waiter] Oh, I'm good with water for now.
Mark Hanna: It's his first day on Wall Street. Give him time.

Mark Hanna: You gotta stay relaxed. Do you jerk off?
Jordan: Do I jerk off? Yeah.
Mark Hanna: How many times a week?
Jordan: Like um... three, three or four times maybe.
Mark Hanna: All right, pump those numbers up, those are rookie numbers in this racket. I myself, I jerk off at least... twice a day.
Jordan: Wow.

Mark Hanna: The name of the game, moving the money from the client's pocket to your pocket.
Jordan: But if you can make your clients money at the same time it's advantageous to everyone, correct?
Mark Hanna: No.

Donnie: How much money you make?
Jordan: $70,000 last month.
Donnie: Get the fuck outta here!
Jordan: Well technically, $72,000 last month.
Donnie: You show me a pay stub for $72,000, I quit my job right now and work for you.
[later, on the phone]
Donnie: Hey Paulie, what's up? No, everything's fine. Hey listen, I quit!

Jordan: I heard some stupid shit. I... I didn't even want to bring it up. It's just... stupid.
Donnie: Shit with me?
Jordan: You know, just... people say shit. I don't even know. I don't even listen to it half the time.
Donnie: What do they say?
Jordan: Shit about you and your cousin or something like that. I don't even listen to it. It doesn't even...
Donnie: No... it's not like that. It's not like that.
Jordan: You know what I mean? Like you married your cousin or some stupid shit, you know?
Donnie: Yeah, my wife... yeah, my wife is my cousin or whatever. But it's not like what you think or whatever, you know...
Jordan: Is she like a... first cousin, or is she...
Donnie: Yeah, no. She... you know, her... her father is the... is the brother of my mom.
Jordan: Mhm.
Donnie: It's not like... Look. We grew up together, and she grew up hot, you know. She fuckin' grew up hot and all of my friends were trying to fuck her, you know, and I wasn't... I'm not gonna let someone, you know, one of these assholes fuck my cousin. So I, you know, used the cousin thing as like... like an in with her. I'm not gonna let someone else fuck my cousin, you know? If anyone is gonna fuck my cousin it's gonna be me, out of... out of respect, you know?

Jordan: [voiceover] I fucked her brains out... for eleven seconds.
Naomi: Did you just cum?
Jordan: Oh yeah. I just came. Did you? Did you cum?
Naomi: No.
Jordan: No? Okay. I'm still hard. Just give me a second.
Naomi: Sure.

Jordan: [holding his child] Does Daddy get a kiss from both of his little girls?
Naomi: Oh, no. No, Daddy doesn't even get to touch Mommy for a very, very... very long time.
Jordan: Daddy's really sorry about what he said in the other room; he didn't mean any of it!
Naomi: Daddy shouldn't waste his time. And from now on... it's gonna be nothing but short, short skirts around the house. And you know something else, Daddy? Mommy is just so sick and tired of wearing panties. [spreads her legs to show him]
Jordan: Yeah?
Naomi: Yeah. [pushes him away with her legs] But no touching.
Jordan: Oh, gosh.

Donnie: I got a couple of mil' comin' in like a week. And when it gets in, I'll give you a call and you come pick it up.
Brad: You'll give me a call?
Donnie: When it gets here, I'll give you a call and you'll come pick it up.
Chantalle: Well, we don't work for you, man!
Donnie: Sweetheart, you have my money taped to your tits. Technically, you do work for me.

Donnie: I check my messages every day when I come home from work... my answering machine... zero! I got a blinking light because I don't have shit from you. I got my wife... I got my wife checking the messages every 45 minutes calling the office saying. "Has Brad apologized yet? Is there an apology message on the machine?" I don't have jack-shit. You know what? That's not how you treat people.
Brad: You gotta be a fucking pal... You know what, I'm gonna give you a fucking pass, just give me the case.
Donnie: You're gonna give me a pass?
Brad: Look, it's a figure of fucking speech, just give me the fucking...
Donnie: Oh my God, the emperor of Fucksville came down from Fucksville to give me a pass! Hey, what are the citizens of Fucksville doing today when their emperor's gone? Is it, is it mayhem? Are people looting and raping? What are all the little fuckheads doing while you're here?

Jordan: You guys hungry? Want something to eat? We got some, uh, pasta, shrimp, lobster. I got whiskey, any kind of booze you want.
Denham: You know what? The Bureau doesn't allow us to drink while we're at sea.
Jordan: Duh!

Denham: You know, Jordan, I'll tell you something. Most of the Wall Street jackasses that I bust... They're to the manor born. Their fathers are douchebags, just like their fathers before them. But you, you, Jordan, you got this way all on your own.
Jordan: Did I?
Denham: Good for you, little man.
Jordan: Little man? [laughing] Me, the little man?
Denham: Let me tell you something else. This is one of the nicest boats I'd ever been on. I gotta tell ya.
Jordan: I bet it is.
Denham: Hey, you wanna know what I was just thinking too? The hero I'm going to be back at the office when the Bureau seizes this boat, because I'm getting fuckety, fuck, fuck, Jordan. Look at this face! It's beautiful! And you got the beautiful girls there. It's wonderful!
Jordan: [laughing] All right, get the fuck off my boat.

Jordan: You want a beer, pal?
Donnie: What are you drinkin'?
Jordan: I got this non-alcoholic shit...
Donnie: What's that?
Jordan: It's like a non-alcoholic beer. It's got no... no alcohol.
Donnie: It's a beer?
Jordan: Yeah, with no alcohol.
Donnie: But, you drink enough and... you drink a lot and it'll get you fucked up?
Jordan: No, there's no alcohol. That's the fuckin' point.
Donnie: I'm not a scientist; I don't know what the fuck you're talking about. I can get you beer if you want fuckin' beer.
Jordan: I know, but I don't drink, remember? I don't drink anymore?
Donnie: What, you wanna go inside and blow some lines of baking powder, baking soda? Can't imagine ever not enjoying getting fucked up. I love it.
Jordan: Yeah...
Donnie: How's being sober?
Jordan: It fuckin' sucks.
Donnie: Boring, right?
Jordan: So boring. I'm gonna kill myself.

[Naomi finds Jordan snorting cocaine]
Naomi: Look at yourself, Jordan. Sick! You're a sick man!
Jordan: [shouts] Fuck you! I told you you're not taking my fucking kids! You fucking...
Naomi: You think I would let my kids near you?! Look at yourself! You know what my lawyer said? My lawyer said that you're going to prison for 20 years, Jordan. Twenty fucking years! You're never gonna see the kids again!
Jordan: You don't think I'm gonna see my kids?!
Naomi: No! I'm not fucking letting you near my kids!
[Jordan walks to his daughter's bedroom.]
Naomi: [trying to stop Jordan] Don't you fucking touch her!
[Jordan punches Naomi in the stomach]
Jordan: Don't you fucking touch me!
