In the 1987 movie Wall Street, Carl Fox (played by Martin Sheen) is skeptical of Gordon Gekko's intentions. He says to his son Bud:
There came into Egypt a Pharaoh that did not know.
I was wondering what this actually meant. I've always assumed it's from the Bible, but I couldn't find an exact quote.
So what does Carl Fox mean? Is there a specific property that he expects from Gekko? (Untrustworthy for example, or bosses looking down on the workers, etc.)
