In this scene from The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), Jordan Belfort is sitting across from Mark Hanna, who is rhythmically hitting his chest with his fist, and snorting cocaine:

Mark Hanna: Tootski?

Jordan: Oh, no. Thank you, though.

What's the meaning of "Tootski" ?

Taken from Urban Dictionary:

Slang for cocaine.

Code word used by Bill Murray in early SNL scenes. Wearing sunglasses and acting shady, he'd offer "tootski", then quickly glance around for any narcs, hold a straw to the bump, and say "Go!".

So, simply put, Mark Hanna is offering the cocaine to Jordan, who gently refuses.

    Drug users often give their habits a childish or humorous-sounding name in order to minimise the negative connotation.

    From what I can tell, it's not really from multiple scenes, but a single skit, "Rock against Yeast" - youtube.com/watch?v=tx9VGQDNMJA . (Or perhaps, this skit started the usage and he's worked it in to others, but I can't find any clips outside this one).

    'Like 'brewski' for a beer. Jocular -ski ending. Jan 8 at 21:11

    From "toot" + "-ski". "Toot" definition from Merriam-Webster: v.t. 2: "to take in (a drug, such as cocaine) by inhalation" (merriam-webster.com/dictionary/toot) "-ski" (meaningless, light-hearted suffix, as used in "brewski").

    @Ergwun nice find, I believe it's worthy of its own answer actually. Jan 9 at 7:35
