In the movie The Dark Knight Rises there exists an utterly splendid exchange between a New York Stock Exchange trader and the arch-villain Bane. It occurs moments after Bane and his heavily-armed followers have taken over the main floor of the exchange. Bane surveys the crowd of traders and spots one trader in particular towards whom he walks. As he walks up to the young man he (the young trader) with futile defiance proclaims:
"This is a stock exchange. There's no money you can steal."
