A reworked scene from 2000′s American Psycho:

Patrick Bateman: New card. What do you think? Picked them up from the printer’s yesterday.

Sergey Brin: Good coloring.

Bateman: That’s Bone. And the lettering is something called Silian Rail.

Brin: It’s very cool, Bateman, but that’s nothing. Look at this.

Bateman: That is really nice.

Brin: Eggshell with Romalian type. What do you think?

Bateman: Nice.

Larry Page: Jesus. That is really super. How’da nitwit like you get so tasteful?

Bateman: I can’t believe that Larry prefers Sergey Brin‘s card to mine.

Page: But wait. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Raised lettering, pale nimbus … white.

Bateman: Impressive. Very nice. Let’s see Eric Schmidt‘s card.

[card thrown on table]

Bateman: Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh, my God. It even has a watermark … Wait a minute. Is “chairman” mispelled? Jesus.
