Al Czervik - "Everybody's buying? Then Sell, sell, sell."

I've seen Caddyshack probably 50 times, and it when it is on TV, I always get sucked back in to watching it.  Aside from the Bill Murray "Cinderella Story Scene" my next favorite scene is where Rodney is on the course talking to his broker.  When his broker is telling him that everyone is buying, he tells him to sell, sell, sell!  That particular scene has always resonated with me.
