The Big Short (Indian Accent)

This scene from the movie The Big Short caught my attention, recently. Listen carefully to Ryan Gosling when he says, "money". I think he says it with an Indian Accent and it's very funny.

On a serious note, the screenplay for this film, starts with a brilliant quote from Leo Tolstoy and this quote is not in the film. However, the film, starts with a quote from Mark Twain that is similar in spirit to the Leo Tolstoy quote. Both the quotes are in a way timeless because, history has a way of repeating itself.

Still, here are the quotes:
"The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him." - Leo Tolstoy
"It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so." - Mark Twain
