Jordan Belfort: You see how I stutter with the words?

Stephen Glass: I get asked this a lot. I don't even know what the term truly means.

Belfort: Five minutes later you're underwater and it feels just fine.

Glass: But there are limitations to what you can do.

Belfort: I don't necessarily mean limits. No matter how much I had, I wanted more.

Glass: That's how I feel. I think that's absent in the movie.

Belfort: It was Tommy Chong. I just didn't know how.

Glass: He never sought me out, and I've never spoken to him. I'm saying in real life.

Belfort: No, no, no, it wasn't even a reality. And it's a scary proposition to think that you might be right, it really is. It happened to me.

Glass: This is still the early stages of a long, long process of apologies. Some I think probably don’t accept my apology.

Belfort: Absolutely not. The jig is up, everybody knows what's going on.

Glass: I don't follow these things.

Belfort: Go out, make money.

Glass: I just can't.
