What's in it for moi?... (29.31)

Cocky quant kid: I've heard about Taylor Mason. Love to see if you live up to the hype, but I've got options. So, let me put this in your language: What's in it for moi?

Wags: You Patrick Bateman/Bud Fox hybrid wannabe.

He was doing Spader in Wall Street. But I don't care about his insulting tone. I only care about his ability to think clearly and rationally under pressure.

Wags: You're not thinking of hiring him?

Cocky quant kid: She's no fool.

Taylor: No. But, sadly, though you may have a genius-level I.Q., you have no control over your emotional state. That's why you're lashing out in here, defensive, allowing your rage at yourself to manifest in boorish, childish behavior. He couldn't figure out the box, so he did that to it. Then he let the rest of his bullshit cloud his thinking. He has no idea why he had to resort to brute force, so he doesn't get to work here.

Wags: Take your feet off the table and get the fuck out of our office.
