Trader Workstation talks

Every trader gets bored during trading day so I decided to spice up my life and created a little app that plays random audio clips from famous movies based on your trading. The app connects to Interactive Brokers TWS and if you open position might say "And don't screw it up, sport" (Wall Street / 1987) or it might say "Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy" (Pulp Fiction). If position is closed with loss it might say "I told you not to go there! I told you not to go there!" (Anger Management / 2003). For profit "Ah, Buddy, Buddy, I hate to tell you this, but you are a genius!" (Wall Street / 1987). Which movie quotes would you play and when?
