"A glittering sign from Thomas Cook's travel agency–'The World is Yours' – parodies a similar one from Gatsby: 'God knows what you've been doing' [...] Scarface harbours the doubts concerning the American Dream that are typical of the 'Depression-era audience." --The Mafia: A Cultural History (2015), Roberto M. Dainotto

"The World is Yours" is a dictum featured in the two Scarface films. In the 1932 version it is a neon sign in a Thomas Cook billboard. In the 1983 version it is featured as a message on a blimp as "THE WORLD IS YOURS...PAN AMERICAN" and later in the film Tony Montana has a globe with that phrase on it in the entrance hall of his mansion.
