Bobby Walker: You should see casual-Friday...
Close to the end of the movie, on top of the construction scaffolding, Bobby is telling Jack that he has received a job offer. Jack asks Bobby about the salary and when hearing the answer he states that the world is a messed up place. While saying this, he takes one step up the ladder and slams a nail into the wood using his nail gun. In the very next cut, the last part of the scene -- where Jack takes one step up the ladder and uses the nail gun -- is shown once again.
Midway through the credits, financial reports from various news sources can be heard for a minute.
