The best business card scene: American Psycho
Wall Street, the 80s. Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) sits at a conference table with his fellow stockbrokers. He removes a silver case from his pocket. One of his colleagues leans across, smirking.
"Is that a gram?"
"New card. Whaddya think?"
Bateman slides his card across the table; it's off-white, with the words PATRICK BATEMAN: VICE PRESIDENT centred and embossed in black.
The assembled party gasp in admiration.
Bateman leans back in his chair.
"Picked 'em up from the printers yesterday."
"That's bone. And the lettering is something called Silian Grail."
Another broker interrupts.
"It's very cool, Bateman, but..."
He whips out his card, laying it next to Bateman's on the table. Off-white with the words ROBERT
VAN PATTEN: VICE PRESIDENT centred and embossed in black, it is basically indistinguishable.
"Egg shell, with Roman."
Bateman smiles bitterly.
Now a third broker pulls out his card. It looks exactly like the first two, except it reads TIMOTHY BRICE: VICE PRESIDENT.
"Raised lettering, pale nimbus."
"Impressive", Bateman mutters. "Let's see Paul Allen's card."
The room falls silent as the third broker produces an absent colleague's card.
Bateman speaks in voiceover.
"Look at that subtle colouring. The tasteful thickness."
His face creases in horror.
"Oh my God. It even has a watermark."
