He’s been dabbling in the market, and he doesn’t use a broker!
He hasn’t checked his stocks in months!

[CUT to MacGruber sipping from a frozen drink and pointing it toward the camera, against footage of flames.]

Singers: MACGRUBER-RRR!!!!!

[CUT to an abandoned oil refinery. SUPERIMPOSE caption, “Abandoned Oil Refinery.” CUT to a sign marked “Oil Refinery Control Room” as sirens wail.]

Kyle: [struggling with locked door] MacGruber! This refinery door is pressure-bolted shut!

Vicky: That’s not our only problem, Macgruber — from the looks of that nitrogen bomb, this we’ve only got twenty seconds!

Kyle: What do we do, MacGruber!

MacGruber: Okay, don’t worry, gang — this one’s a piece of cake! In fact, I even have time to check my stocks online! It’s so easy! [ he opens a laptop computer ] I just log into the web site…

Vicky: [ looking at her watch ] FIFTEEN seconds, MacGruber!

MacGruber: [ ignoring her ] Put in my password… “MacGruber” — do not tell anyone, you guys, I’m serious!

Kyle: MacGruber! What about the bomb?!

MacGruber: Okay, I’ll tell you what’s gonna be “da bomb”, Kyle — is when I use my tremendous stock earnings to take you out to a juicy steak dinner. Oooh-wee!


MacGruber: Okay, it’s loading…

Kyle: MacGruber! Hurry!

MacGruber: Loading…

Vicky: FIVE seconds, MacGruber!
