They're not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, health care. They're like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world. I don't think they shouldn't be — I just think excuse them so they can go back on Tinder or"

1. "His window was down, and we pulled up and I said, 'Hey man, just a heads-up, something's burning from your exhaust. Your exhaust smells horrible, just wanted to let you know.' He looked over at me and said, 'I'm going to kill everybody in your (expletive) vehicle.' It was so random, so bizarre, I was like, 'What?' And he said the exact same thing again ... It was a fight or flight situation and, unfortunately, we had to take flight at about 110 miles per hour. It was very scary ... He's been swerving all over the road. We're exceeding the speed limit, but it's because he's literally trying to do whatever it takes to hit us ... I am not trying to soil this guy's reputation or his legacy. I know this community thinks very fondly of him. I am just being honest, and I'm trying to get this off my chest. He tried to kill us. He told us he was going to try and kill us. I've never gotten a look from somebody like that, I just don't understand it. That's a face that's been in my head the last few days"
2. "As we got closer, the white SUV took like a bat out of hell and passed us. He passed us going very fast. We were like 'Holy crap, what was that?' It was startling how fast he was going. He was going very, very fast. He was stopped, and he just floored it"

Gasparino’s ‘rent-a-cop’ once made heroic bank bust

Tells Imus about trip: "This is Fox country ... they ask about you, they ask about Cavuto ... It's not something I wanted to do; it was something that I was asked to do ... took me 2 days to get there ... transfer from a fleabag hotel to, uh, less of a fleabag hotel ... I'm told by one of my producers- I'm there with Charlie Gould and Elka Worner, whose uh, you know, one of the producers- 2 of the producers here at Fox, that we should go to this party because it's open to the press ... I didn't get a lot of sleep, I'd like to go home and relax ... So I walk in, duh duh duh duh duh, hands in my pockets ... not bothering anybody ... out of nowhere, the goon squad descends upon us ... Brian Coughlan, he's a New York City cop ... Now Charlie Gould is not exactly the biggest guy in the world if you ever see him; you know, he gets manhandled ... if you put your f-ing hands on me, there's gonna be a problem, and I will walk out of this party. I will not be thrown out. This lasted about 4 minutes ... The next morning we get up to do our thing ... actually had a good sleep, the air-conditioner, condition (sic) worked. ... When he started pointing his finger in her face, I lost it"
Imus: "Did he put his hands on you?"
Charlie: No, but it got close, because what I said to him, you know, you know- I caught him, I caught him being, being a bully to a woman. And when I caught him, he lost it"
Imus: "What was he saying to her?"
Charlie: "Between the curses and the finger-pointing, something along the lines that she should've known that the event we went to was, was, was off-limits to the press. Now here's the backdrop to that, that event, every year, was on-limits to the press. We didn't know"
Not drinking: "Anybody that knows me, if I'm tipsy, I'm actually nice"
Suggests rationale: "He may have gotten amped up by then, he may have had no sleep ... this guy Coughlan accused Elka of havin' a few. Elka doesn't drink"
Suggests conspiracy: "I know a lot of cops. And this guy and I probably have 5 or 6 at least mutual acquaintances, maybe mutual friends ... often these Wall Street guys will sit there and tell them, when we give you the signal, we want you to, like, grab that guy and throw him out"
Smokescreen: "What I wanna know, if Mr. Coughlan stubs his toe, you know people, as he's throwing Charlie Gould out of that party, and needs to take off 3 days from the New York City Police Department, do we have to pay for his sick leave?"
Imus: "Well he wasn't in Sun Valley Idaho working for the New York City Police Department, was he?"
Charlie: "No no. But he's on the job. Remember he's still working here"
Flop: Imus not interested in hearing Zuckerberg/Christie story
Says 3 times he loves/likes NYPD cops: "I love New York City cops ... I've been sticking up for cops forever, particularly in this onslaught from Bill de Blasio. So I'm not a cop-hater. ... I love the cops. I have friends, I defend 'em ... I like cops. I'm a big supporter of the New York City Police Department ..."

"You start thinking about Chuck and when all of the wonderful things that come to mind, you realize he's in heaven and spending eternity in peace. That's very refreshing. I’m proud to have played for him. It was a great honor. My relationship wasn’t good, as you well know, but he made me understand my job responsibilities, because I had to grow up. ... I learned how to be mentally tough with him, and for that I can never say thank you enough, because that got me through divorces, Super Bowls, and those times when I had bad moments in big games. He made me mentally strong, which I wasn't. And he instilled in me a great work ethic. I had a good work ethic, but preparation was paramount with him, so we spent a lot of time going through preparations for the games. He was an amazing guy. ... You try to get better and better, and then when it's all said and done he says, 'Thank you. You were a great quarterback.' And you say, 'Wow!' He was different than anybody I had ever been around and played for. He was smart, really smart"

In this case, I mean, in addition to the fact that this tape in essence was broadcast to the world and so quickly became available to us, in the past these were issues that did not directly impact the NBA. And we're not the government. He was investigated by the Department of Housing, the Department of Justice. There were individual lawsuits with him that settled out. So I was at the League during that time, and when we monitored those events, at least it felt at that time that we were doing the appropriate thing. It's a fair point that in hindsight possibly we should have done more. Certainly if I had to do it again, maybe we would have done more but our eyes are open going forward"

And the only (thing) that I can think of is that I buy Brooklyn Burger from you. And I'll repackage it. And I'll get it back on its feet."
Howard Mora: "We're willing to do whatever it takes. But uh, with your guidance now, I think that um, that, things will work out, mu- much much better"

Mark of celebration: Hoffman leads rousing cheers at CNBC

"There's been a lot of highlights ...

So far I haven't been contacted by anyone to, to be in the movie, but with Ben in there-"
Evans: "Would you do it though Matt? Because look you have to say it would make a certain amount of sense for this cause, if you did it ONLY for this cause, it would actually make a certain amount of sense ..."
Damon: "Well, all right, uh, uh, I'm open to being in any good movie as always; it might be a bit of a stretch ..."

‘Ukrainian situation’ at NYSE during Wright’s off-kilter interview

Launching CNBC: "Enormous challenge ... brutal effort ... very, very difficult thing"
Bill Griffeth: "We forget Bob, that back then, no e-mail, no Internet, no cell phones, I mean, the, the information flow was a lot different than it is now. So, for people who wanted up-to-date information about the stock market or whatever market they were trading, I mean, FNN was it for the '80s, but CNBC did a much better job of providing that information when it went on the air 25 years ago, right?"
Bob Wright: "Well, it was also remarkable how much the trades were actually generally daily newspapers. They covered the networks like it was, every day was a presidential election. Every little thing was covered, every argument, every default, every- every issue was covered. So, you couldn't get out of the-, uh, of print."
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "Well, what do you think is the next 25 years for CNBC. What does it hold?"
Wright: "I hear a lot of sirens. Is this- is this kind of Ukrainian situation you're in?"
Caruso-Cabrera: "No, you know what it speaks to, it speaks to the fact that the floor is so empty now they get bored and there's a guy whooping over here like crazy, I don't know why."
Griffeth: "Well it's the day before a 3-day weekend and they usually do something like that. So, It brings in a holiday mood."
Wright: "They don't-"
Griffeth: "Don't take it personally Bob."
Wright: "They don't have Russian flags. They don't have Russian flags, do they?"
Griffeth: "Yeah, no, no, everything's fine here."
Unanswered MCC question: "Why didn't we have the peacock way at the beginning?"
Wright: "The peacock was like 'The War of the Worlds' with the affiliates. Uh, We had knock-down, drag-out battles, uh, 6 months ahead of time about using the peacock. It was uh, very- you have no idea how difficult this was"
Caruso-Cabrera: "Glad it finally happened."

Neil Young calls CNBC’s Kelly Evans ‘Michelle’

Kelly: "And Neil when you're choosing, what I think a lot of people are trying to understand is, is this just a way of presenting music files differently, or if you become part of this whole ecosystem that you're pushing for, does each artist have to record it specifically, have it be distributed one way and then played on your device in order to capture that full experience?"
Neil: "That's a good question, Michelle. Uh, uh, the, the uh, artists get to do exactly what they want to do. There is no format with Pono. It's completely different. It's not a CD or an MP3. It plays back exactly what the artist gave you. ... Whatever the artist created in the studio is exactly what you hear"
Interruptions: Every Evans question afterward cuts off a Young answer
Neil: "Kelly, I'm sorry I called you Michelle, that was my mistake"
Kelly: "Oh no, hey, that's a compliment, come on"

"We were standing in line at the boarding gate, just with everybody else and the pilot and co-pilot walked past us and came back and asked us if we would like to sit with them in the cockpit during the flight so obviously we said ‘Yes!' ... Throughout the whole flight they were talking to us, they were actually smoking through the flight which I don’t think they’re allowed to be doing. They were taking photos with us in the cockpit while they were flying. I was just completely shocked ... possibly a little bit sleazy. They asked us if we could arrange our trip to stay in Kuala Lumpur for a few nights ... they could take us out. ... I'm really not saying that I think co-pilot was in the wrong on this flight at all"

Cohen case: All feds have got, or start of something big?

Brad Bondi: "I think the fact that the SEC has gone first indicates that there is a, a less of a likelihood now that there'll be criminal charges against Steven Cohen. Usually, if there are criminal charges, the prosecution goes first with those charges. So the fact that the SEC's moving now should be a sigh of relief for him"
New York Times: "Though a legal deadline to file some insider trading charges is approaching, authorities are planning to navigate around that requirement by filing a broader criminal conspiracy case against SAC" ... "The meeting was separate from the agency’s typical weekly gathering to discuss enforcement cases, a measure that allowed the agency to keep a tight lid on the case." ... "'Please keep this to yourself as obviously not well known,' Mr. Horvath wrote. ... Three hours after the earnings release, Mr. Cohen e-mailed Mr. Steinberg: 'Nice job on Dell.'"
Bethany McLean: "There's something strange here ... I have been hearing whispers of something against the firm coming, coming, coming, criminally"
Ron Insana: "From the time that I was there and as you know it was only 5½ months, uh, both Peter Nussbaum, the general counsel, and, and Steve Kessler, the head of compliance had, had schooled me quite a bit in, in the strictures of, of compliance activity at SAC"
Bethany McLean: "When SAC makes a big deal about how strong their compliance is, when you look at the specifics of some of the e-mails surrounding these, these charges it does make you wonder, and what some people have, have alleged, that it is compliance in name rather than in, rather than in actuality. When you, when you look at some of the e-mails that were sent, you say, 'Well, why on earth didn't this raise red flags at SAC's Compliance Department if its Compliance Department is so good?' And the only answer I've gotten was that it was 2008 and that was a different time than, than today. But that's not really a satisfying answer"
Bloomberg: "'They face a very high burden of proof if they’re going to get some sort of conviction' of Cohen"
AP: "Coffee said it is significant that the SEC did not charge Cohen with insider trading. That suggests none of his subordinates 'flipped' and told investigators that they provided Cohen with information, he said. ... The actions could signal a new direction and strategy under SEC Chairman Mary Jo White, who assumed office in April"
WSJ: "His decision to keep buying trophy properties, even as his former employees and firm were facing charges, privately irked government officials"
Gasparino: "Mary Jo White making her mark: SEC didnt offer Cohen chance to settle ala Corzine, i am told"
Gasparino on CNBC: "also hate to tout brand-x but go back and look at preet's explanations about possible RICO charges against a hypothetical firm"
Andrew Ross Sorkin: "But the SEC case, I understand most lawyers who have seen it so far think it's actually a very, very strong case"
David Faber: "I think if the SEC is successful in this, with these civil charges ... it doesn't have the power to stop him from managing his own money ... Again, if the SEC is even successful in, um, in getting the conviction on the civil charges, much of SAC would still be intact potentially"
Ed Butowsky: "I'm not pulling any money out ... Since the mid-1990s, he has returned about 4,000% back to his investors. The, the trades that are in question right now, where he failed to supervise, represent $275 million. Now, that's a big number, but put it in the context, it's less than .005% of the gains that he has, uh, returned back to investors since the mid-1990s. So I have never thought about moving money out. Matter of fact, I've often thought about how can I get more money back to this wonderful investor"
Scott Wapner vs. Ed Butowsky: "You seem to be making the argument ... I don't know, money trumps morality. You don't care if he did anything wrong, his returns have been astronomical over the years"
Butowsky to Wapner: "Those are words that I didn't say, and I resent the way you're putting it"
Anthony Scaramucci: "I think at the end of the day, Steve is gonna have to make a decision which way to go ... this case is gonna go on for a while ... If we're on a witch hunt to nail somebody, and then we, we spend 10 years and we back 'em into a corner of failure to supervise, it doesn't seem like you have a guns-blazing case there, and I respect Steve for not settling"

Jerry Bowyer: Larry Kudlow demanded market optimism

"Over time it became gradually more and more clear to me that my job was not to fight for certain principles, but to fight for Larry’s personal agenda. Although the show adopted The Kudlow Creed, 'I believe that free-market capitalism is the best path to prosperity,' that dogma was being supplanted by another more foundational creed: economic and market optimism. My job was to come on the air and make the bull case. ... More recently his columns have been praising the zero interest rate and 'unlimited easing' policies of the U.S. and Japanese central banks. This is free market capitalism? ... The constant pressure for optimism, producers calling and saying 'Larry's looking for the optimism case.' Larry putting formerly optimistic guests 'in the penalty box' for not providing it. Larry dropping good thinkers with good minds when they turned pessimistic. And even worse, those who stayed around, bending their minds and their principles to always find good news so they could continue in his good graces and get the publicity they needed"

Died: Edmund S. Morgan, 96, reinvented Colonial-era study

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera:
‘Paul Tudor Jones said out loud what we all know to be anecdotally true,’ Karen Finerman is ‘exception that proves the rule’

Karen Finerman: "Well my first response was I just could not believe he said it. And so I, I wanted to make sure that I had it right, and I went and I looked at the video, and of course you just showed it, so yes, he said it, and, uh, I, I, I know, I know that he's apologized, that he didn't mean to offend anyone, and I believe he was saying it, he was- an attempt to be very candid, I can't believe also that he didn't think that will- would never get out, but it's sort of- I mean on so many levels, it makes me wonder, 1, what if you don't nurse, do you not then have that- are you, do you keep your judgment then if you don't nurse. That's sort of something that popped into my head"
Amanda Drury: "And also, is he also saying that global macro traders that are guys are not great dads because they're always off 24/7 on the phone trading stuff"
Karen Finerman: "Right, I just- I don't really accept that premise either. If you are a mother, I really sort of do wonder, how long this would knock you off your game for. And, it, I don't know, on so many levels, I know so many women, far more successful than I, who have done an extraordinary job of raising kids, and also, uh, you know, trading, trading their books"
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "I think Paul Tudor Jones said out loud what we all know to be anecdotally true. That women, it's not that they don't have the ability, it's just, if they have a child, priorities tend to change. It takes up a lot of time. A child is a huge, huge commitment. And so-"
Amanda Drury: "And not necessarily a bad thing"
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "It's not necessarily a bad thing, he's not saying that, that they can't do it, it's just, it gets a lot tougher. Priorities often change. And I think Karen, you are awesome, but you are the exception I think that proves the rule. Let's face it: How many other women are on 'Fast Money.' I mean when you look at the breakdown of people- when you look at the breakdown of people who are on CNBC. It's a guys-and-ties network. I mean let's not kid anybody!"
Karen Finerman: "Yes I hear you-"
Brian Sullivan ridiculously removes tie: "Here we go, no more guys in ties"
Karen Finerman: "Let me just add 1 thing"
Brian Sullivan: "I don't wanna get accused of dodging the conversation. All right, I know hedge fund managers that have what they call the large-house indicator. Right. What they say is, if they have an investment manager, or a fellow hedge fund manager, whatever, that starts to build a new mansion, they will often times use that- or CEO of a company, they'll use that as a negative and either get out of it or trim, because building a home is a year-long process, takes a lot of energy, you're not focused on what you're doing. So I don't think just has to be about gender. If you've got any big undertaking you take on, that reduces your focus. I'm not defending what he said-"
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "Except this happens to be about having babies for women, which is just a huge thing in, in most women's life"
Brian Sullivan: "If I was a hedge fund manager and a CEO of a company bought a 200-foot yacht, I would sell the shares of that company probably short that next day"
Karen Finerman: "I mean also there's the private plane indicator, you get the private plane, you're not hungry anymore, then you don't care. I, I don't really buy that, I think it also makes the case that women don't have the judgment to know, after they've had a baby, whether or not they are still interested in being in the game. Now that may be his experience, and I believe him when he says that's what he's found to be true, and he gave a couple examples of a, you know, two women from Maryland the '70s, he probably has more recent examples than that, but is he just open to the possibility, the possibility, that maybe it's not true, that there will never be just as many women investors as men, never, period, end of story. Isn't it possible?"
Amanda Drury: "And the other thing is Karen, and you've touched on this, I mean, we would've said in the past, it would've been decades, maybe not even so long ago, we would've said that we can't have a good female doctor, she can't possibly be on call because she's got to be at home feeding her child at night. Right?"
Karen Finerman: "And now look. Now look, there are just as many women, or maybe it's about the same number of women graduating from medical school as men and you're right, years and years ago, that was thought as an impossibility"

Clarification: "My off-the-cuff remarks at the University of Virginia were with regard to global macro traders, who are on-call 24/7 and of whom there are likely only a few thousand successful practitioners in the world today. Macro trading requires a high degree of skill, focus and repetition.
