Jake Gittes: How much are you worth?
Vladimir Putin: I have no idea. How much do you want?
Jake Gittes: I just wanna know what you’re worth. More than 150 billion?
Vladimir Putin: Oh my, yes!
Jake Gittes: Closer to $200 billion?
Vladimir Putin: Quite possible. I really don’t have an exact figure.
Jake Gittes: Why are you doing it? How much better can you eat? What could you buy that you can’t already afford?
Vladimir Putin: The future, Mr. Gittes! The future!
Jake Gittes: You need $200 billion to wrangle the future with? Some would consider a billion dollars to be an enormous fortune.
Vladimir Putin: It’s not the amount, Mr. Gittes. It’s the fact that it’s there for the taking and no one can stop me.
