Page 1 2 TRIVIA
[Mark sitting alone in a conference room working on his laptop]
Marylin Delpy: What are you doing?
Mark Zuckerberg: Checking in to see how it’s going in Bosnia.
Marylin Delpy: Bosnia? They don’t have roads but they have Facebook.
[Mark doesn’t reply but continues typing on his laptop]
Marylin Delpy: You must really hate the Winklesvosses?
Mark Zuckerberg: I don’t hate anybody. The Winklevi aren’t suing me for intellectual property theft. They’re suing me because for the first time in their lives things didn’t work out the way it was supposed to for them.
[after finding out that Mark is expanding his website to Yale and Columbia]
Divya Narendra: I wanna hire a lawyer to file for injunctive relief and get this site taken down now!
Cameron Winklevoss: Look…
Divya Narendra: Every minute this site is up HarvardConnection becomes less valuable. I want an injunction, I want damages, I want punitive relief and I want him dead.
Cameron Winklevoss: Yeah, I want those things too.
Divya Narendra: Then why aren’t we doing anything about it? Because we’re gentlemen of Harvard?!
Cameron Winklevoss: No, because you’re not thinking how it’s gonna look.
Divya Narendra: How’s it gonna look?
Cameron Winklevoss: Like my brother and I are in skeleton costumes chasing the Karate Kid around the high school gym.
Cameron Winklevoss: There’s no such thing as Harvard Law.
Tyler Winklevoss: Wait…yeah, there is.
[Tyler goes to the bookshelf and gets a book out]
Tyler Winklevoss: Harvard Student Handbook. Every freshman is issued one of these and somewhere in this book it says…
Cameron Winklevoss: …you can’t steal from another student. This is what we needed.
Sean Parker: I don’t go to school.
Amelia Ritter: You’re kidding?
Sean Parker: No.
Amelia Ritter: Well, where did you go to school?
Sean Parker: William Taft Elementary, for a little while.
Amelia Ritter: Seriously? You’re not like fifteen years old or anything are you?
Sean Parker: No. Wait, you’re not like fifteen are you?
Amelia Ritter: No. So what do you do?
Sean Parker: I’m an entrepreneur.
Amelia Ritter: You’re unemployed.
Sean Parker: I wouldn’t say that.
Amelia Ritter: What would say?
Sean Parker: That I’m an entrepreneur.
Amelia Ritter: Well then, what was your latest entrepreneur?
Sean Parker: Well, I founded an internet company that let folks download and share music for free.
Amelia Ritter: Kind of like Napster?
Sean Parker: Exactly like Napster.
Amelia Ritter: What do you mean?
Sean Parker: I founded Napster.
Amelia Ritter: Sean Parker founded Napster.
Sean Parker: Nice to meet you.
Amelia Ritter: I just slept with Sean Parker?
Sean Parker: You just slept ‘on’ Sean Parker.
Amelia Ritter: You’re a zillionaire.
Sean Parker: Not technically.
Amelia Ritter: What are you?
Sean Parker: Broke. There’s not a lot of money in free music. Even less when you’re being sued by everyone who’s ever been to the Grammys.
Sean Parker: I went to check my email and there’s a website open on your computer.
Amelia Ritter: Yeah. After you passed out last night I went on TheFacebook for a little bit.
Sean Parker: What’s that?
Amelia Ritter: TheFacebook? Stanford’s had it for like two weeks now. It’s really awesome, except it’s freakishly addictive. Seriously, I’m on the thing like five times a day.
[goes back to the shower]
Sean Parker: Mind if I send myself and email?
Amelia Ritter: Yeah. Is everything okay?
Sean Parker: [to himself] Everything’s great. I just need to find…you, Mark Zuckerberg.
[waiting to see the President of Harvard]
Cameron Winklevoss: Never been in this building before.
Larry Summers’ Secretary: This building is a hundred years older than the country it’s in. So do be careful.
Tyler Winklevoss: We’re sitting in chairs!
[meeting with the President of Harvard, Larry Summers]
Larry Summers: You’re here because? Either of you can answer.
Cameron Winklevoss: Oh, I’m sorry sir. I thought you were reading the letter.
Larry Summers: I’ve read the letter.
Cameron Winklevoss: Well we came up with an idea for a website called HarvardConnection and we’ve since changed the name to ConnectU and Mark Zuckerberg stole that idea…
Larry Summers: I understand and I’m asking what you want me to do about it?
Cameron Winklevoss: Well sir, in the Harvard Student Handbook, which is distributed to each freshman, under the heading “Standards of Conduct in the Harvard Community” it says; “The college expects all students will be honest and forthcoming in their dealings with members in this community. Student are required to respect public and private ownership. And instances of theft, misappropriation or…
Larry Summers: Anne?
Anne: Yes, sir.
Larry Summers: [sarcastically] Punch me in the face.
Larry Summers: Have you tried dealing with the other student directly?
Cameron Winklevoss: Mr. Zuckerberg hasn’t been responding to any of our emails or phone calls for the last two weeks. He doesn’t answer when we knock on his door at Kirkland and the closest I’ve come to dealing with him face to face is when I saw him on the quad and chased him through Harvard Square.
Larry Summers: You chased him?
Cameron Winklevoss: I…I…I saw him and I know he saw me. I went after him and then he disappeared.
Larry Summers: I don’t see this as a University issue.
Tyler Winklevoss: Of course it’s a University issue. There’s a code of ethics and an honor code and he violated both.
Larry Summers: You enter into a code of ethics with the University, not with each other.
Tyler Winklevoss: I’m sorry President Summers, but what you just said makes no sense to me all.
Larry Summers: [sarcastically] I’m devastated by that.
Tyler Winklevoss: This idea is potentially worth millions of dollars.
Larry Summers: Millions?
Cameron Winklevoss: Yes.
Larry Summers: You must just be letting your imaginations run away with you.
Tyler Winklevoss: Sir I honestly don’t think you’re in any position to make that call.
Larry Summers: I was the U.S. Treasury Secretary. I’m in some position to make that call.
Tyler Winklevoss: Well…letting our imaginations run away with us is exactly what we were told to do in your freshman address.
Larry Summers: Everyone at Harvard is inventing something. Harvard undergraduates believe that inventing a job is better than finding a job. So I suggest again that the two of you come up with a new project.
Cameron Winklevoss: I-I…I’m sorry sir, but that’s not the point.
Larry Summers: Please, arrive at the point.
Cameron Winklevoss: You don’t have to be an intellectual property expert to understand the difference between right and wrong.
Larry Summers: And you’re saying that I don’t?
Cameron Winklevoss: Of course I’m not saying that, sir.
Tyler Winklevoss: I’m saying that.
Larry Summers: Let me tell you something, Mr. Winklevoss, Mr. Winklevoss, since you’re on the subject of right and wrong. This action, this meeting, the two of you being here is wrong! It’s not worthy of Harvard, it’s not what Harvard saw in you. You don’t get special treatment.
Cameron Winklevoss: We never asked for…
Tyler Winklevoss: Wait…just start another project?
Larry Summers: If you have a…
Tyler Winklevoss: Like we’re making a diorama for the science fair?
Larry Summers: If you have a problem with that Mr. Winklevoss…
Cameron Winklevoss: We never asked for special treatment.
Larry Summers: The courts are always at your disposal. Is there anything else I can do for you?
Tyler Winklevoss: [quietly] Well, you could take the Harvard Student Handbook and shove it…
Cameron Winklevoss: Ty!
[as Cameron and Tyler leave Summers office, Tyler closes the door a little too hard and the door knob comes off in hand]
Tyler Winklevoss: Woops! Broke a three hundred and fifty year old door knob.
[drops it on the secretary’s desk]
[at the deposition with Eduardo and his lawyer]
Gretchen: At this point your thousand dollars was the only money that had been put into the company.
Eduardo Saverin: Yes.
Gretchen: How did you feel the meetings went?
Eduardo Saverin: They went terribly.
Eduardo Saverin: Mark was asleep.
Mark Zuckerberg: I was not asleep.
Eduardo Saverin: Can I rephrase my answer?
Eduardo Saverin: I wish he’d been asleep.
[during a meeting with an ad executive, Mark is making strange noises with his mouth]
Ad Executive: Excuse me for one second. What sound is he making? Is that like a tisk?
Mark Zuckerberg: It wasn’t a tisk. It was…
[makes the noise again with this mouth]
Mark Zuckerberg: …like a glottal stop. Almost a gag reflex.
Ad Executive: Guys, what is this?
[waiting to have a meeting with Sean Parker at a restaurant]
Eduardo Saverin: He’s twenty-five minutes late!
Mark Zuckerberg: He invented Napster when he was nineteen. He can be late.
Eduardo Saverin: He’s not a god.
Mark Zuckerberg: What is he?
Eduardo Saverin: He’s twenty-five minutes late.
Christy: I think Wardo’s jealous.
[back at the deposition]
Eduardo Saverin: I honestly wasn’t jealous. I was nervous.
Eduardo Saverin: Well, I didn’t know him at all. But I had done a search and I’d asked around and he struck me as kind of a…a wild card.
[back at the restaurant]
Eduardo Saverin: He crashed out of two pretty big internet companies in spectacular fashion. He’s had a reputation with drugs.
Mark Zuckerberg: He also founded the companies.
Eduardo Saverin: We don’t need him.
[at the deposition meeting referring to when they met Sean Parker]
Eduardo Saverin: From that point on it was a Sean-a-thon.
Sean Parker: I didn’t want to spend my twenty’s as a professional defender. Who knew the music industry doesn’t have a sense of humor. We tried to sell the company to pay the thirty five million they said we owed in royalties but I guess to them that was a little like selling a stolen car to pay for the stolen gas. So we said screw it, declare bankruptcy.
[referring back to what Sean Parker told them about his business ventures]
Eduardo Saverin: And then he went onto his second business venture, which was an online rolodex that he got thrown out of by case equity.
Sean Parker: And I wanted to do it nice this time. I put on a tie and I shined my shoes, but nobody wants to take orders from a kid. So let me tell you what happens to a twenty year old at the top of a hot dot com.
[referring to his impression of Sean Parker]
Eduardo Saverin: I…I’m not a psychiatrist but…
Sy: [sarcastically] Well, I’m glad we’ve got that on the record.
Gretchen: Okay, you’re not a psychiatrist but what?
Eduardo Saverin: A psychiatrist would say that he was paranoid.
[telling Eduardo, Mark and Christy about what happened to him after his business successes]
Sean Parker: They’ll hire private detectives who will follow you day and night. You’re a target for high priced escorts. I can’t prove it but I know they tapped my phones. Whatever it is that’s gonna trip you up you’ve done already. Private behavior is irrelevant at a time gone by and if somehow, some way you’ve managed to live your life like the Dalai Lama they’ll make shit up because they don’t want you, they want your ideas. And they want you to say ‘thank you’ while you, excuse me, wipe your chin and walk away.
[at the deposition referring to their first meeting with Sean Parker]
Eduardo Saverin: And he told story after story about life in Silicon Valley, and parties at Stanford, and down in LA and friends with kallimionnaires. But mostly about how Mark had to, he had to come to California. And then he got around to TheFacebook.
Eduardo Saverin: Hey, you know what? Settle and argument for us. I say it’s time to start making money from TheFacebook, but Mark doesn’t want to advertise. Who’s right?
Sean Parker: Um…neither of you yet. TheFacebook is cool that’s what it’s got going for it.
Mark Zuckerberg: Yeah.
Eduardo Saverin: You don’t want to ruin it with ads because ads aren’t cool.
Mark Zuckerberg: Exactly.
Sean Parker: You don’t even know what the thing is yet.
Mark Zuckerberg: I said that exactly.
Sean Parker: How big it can get, how far it can go. This is no time to take your chips down. A million dollars isn’t cool. You know what’s cool?
Eduardo Saverin: [sarcastically] You?
[scene goes back to the deposition room]
Eduardo Saverin: A billion dollars. That shut everybody up.
Sean Parker: I don’t have a dog in this fight. I’m just a fan who came to say hi.
Eduardo Saverin: He owned Mark after that dinner. He picked up the check, he told Mark they’d talk again soon and he was gone. But not before he made his biggest contribution to the company.
[just about he’s to leave the restaurant]
Sean Parker: Drop the ‘the’. Just Facebook. It’s cleaner.
Eduardo Saverin: That’s gotta be some kind of land speed record for talking.
Mark Zuckerberg: You want to end the party at eleven.
Eduardo Saverin: I’m trying to pay for the party.
Mark Zuckerberg: There won’t be a party unless it’s cool. What do you think?
Eduardo Saverin: Yeah, sure. Let’s drop the ‘the’.
[during the deposition]
Sy: Mr. Saverin, have you ever done anything that might be considered legitimate grounds for termination?
Eduardo Saverin: No.
Sy: You never did anything to embarrass the company or even seriously jeopardize it?
Eduardo Saverin: No.
Eduardo Saverin: No.
Sy: You were accused of animal cruelty.
Eduardo Saverin: Wait.
Sy: You weren’t?
Eduardo Saverin: Thi…this is not happening.
Eduardo Saverin: I’d gotten into the Phoenix. I’d been accepted and as part of my initiation I had to, for one week, carry with me at all times and take care of a chicken.
Eduardo Saverin: I did not torture the chicken. I don’t torture chickens. Are you crazy?
Sy: No and settle down please. I have here an article from The Crimson…
Eduardo Saverin: I was having dinner in Kirkland Dining Hall with Mark and I had the chicken with me because I had to have the chicken with me at all times. This was college.
Eduardo Saverin: And the dining hall was serving chicken for dinner so I…and I had to feed my chicken. So I…what…I took little pieces of chicken and I gave it to the chicken. Someone must have seen me because the next thing I knew I was being accused of forced cannibalism. I didn’t know you couldn’t do that. I dealt with a various animal rights groups, I dealt with the Associate Dean of the college. This was all resolved.
Gretchen: Mr. Zuckerberg was cheating on his final exam?
Eduardo Saverin: I’d rather not answer that Gretchen.
Gretchen: Why not?
Eduardo Saverin: Because I’m not suing him for cheating on his final exam. That’s not what friends do.
Gretchen: Well you just told us he was cheating.
Eduardo Saverin: Oops.
[he turns to look at Mark across the table]
Eduardo Saverin: You told your lawyers I was torturing animals?
Sy: No, he didn’t tell us about it at all. Our litigators are capable of finding a Crimson article. In fact when we raised the subject with him he defended you.
Mark Zuckerberg: [sarcastically] Oops.
[in Mark’s dorm room]
Eduardo Saverin: When did you decide to go to California for the summer?
Mark Zuckerberg: You mean when did I actually decide?
Eduardo Saverin: Was it somewhere in the middle of the Sean Parker Variety Hour?
Mark Zuckerberg: He was right. California’s the place we’ve gotta be.
Mark Zuckerberg: What is your problem with Sean?
Eduardo Saverin: He doesn’t bring anything to the table. He doesn’t have money. Dustin’s a better a better programmer.
Mark Zuckerberg: He’s got connections to VC’s.
Eduardo Saverin: We don’t need VC’s, we need advertisers. And I have connections to VC’s.
[referring to Sean Parker]
Eduardo Saverin: You don’t think that it was strange that he was followed by private detectives?
Mark Zuckerberg: Who came up with nothing.
Eduardo Saverin: Enough to get him out of the company. The drugs, the girls…
Mark Zuckerberg: We don’t know that any of that’s true.
[Mark’s is testing the candidates interviewing for his intern job]
Eduardo Saverin: What’s going on?
Mark Zuckerberg: They have ten minutes to get root access to a Python webserver, expose it’s SSL encryption and then intercept all traffic over its secure port.
Eduardo Saverin: They’re hacking.
Mark Zuckerberg: Yes, all behind a Pix Firewall Emulator. But here’s the beauty.
Eduardo Saverin: You know I didn’t understand anything you just said, right?
Mark Zuckerberg: I do know that.
Eduardo Saverin: So, what’s the beauty?
Mark Zuckerberg: Every tenth line of code written, they have to drink a shot. And hacking supposed to be stealth, so every time the server detects an intrusion, the candidate responsible has to drink a shot. I also have a program running that has a pop-up window appear simultaneously on all five computers. The last candidate to hit the window has to drink a shot. Plus every three minutes they all have to drink a shot.
Eduardo Saverin: Hey, can I ask what part of the interns job will they need to be able to do drunk?
Mark Zuckerberg: You’re right. A more relevant test might be seeing if they can keep a chicken alive for a week.
[he pauses for a moment]
Mark Zuckerberg: That was mean.
[during the deposition]
Gretchen: Eighteen thousand dollars?
Eduardo Saverin: Yes.
Gretchen: In addition to the one thousand dollars you’d already put up.
Eduardo Saverin: Yes.
Gretchen: A total of nineteen thousand dollars now.
Eduardo Saverin: Yes
Mark Zuckerberg: Hang on.
[he starts writing on his notepad]
Mark Zuckerberg: I’m just checking your math on that. Yes, I got the same thing.
Gretchen: After expressing misgivings about Mr. Zuckerberg taking the company and moving it to California for the summer, why did you put eighteen thousand dollars in an account for his use?
Eduardo Saverin: I figured we were partners. I wanted to be a team player, I figured Mark, Dustin and the new interns could work on the site while I was generating advertiser interest in New York. But mostly I figured, how much could possibly go wrong in three months?
Sean Parker: You came to California.
Mark Zuckerberg: Yeah.
Sean Parker: You made the right choice.
Mark Zuckerberg: Your…your date looks so familiar to me.
Sean Parker: She looks familiar to a lot of people.
Mark Zuckerberg: What do you mean?
Sean Parker: A Stanford MBA named Roy Raymond, wants to buy his wife some lingerie but he’s too embarrassed to shop for it at a department store. Comes up with an idea for a high end place that doesn’t make you feel like a pervert. He gets a forty thousand dollar bank loan, borrows another forty thousand from his in-laws, opens a store and calls it Victoria’s Secret. Makes a half million dollars his first year. He starts a catalogue, opens three mores stores and after five years he sells the company to Leslie Wexner and The Limited for four million dollars. Happy ending, right? Except four years later the company’s worth five hundred million dollars and Roy Raymond jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge. Poor guy just wanted to buy his wife a pair of thigh highs.
Mark Zuckerberg: Was that a parable?
Sean Parker: My date’s a Victoria’s Secret model. That’s why she looks familiar to you.
Sean Parker: You know why I started Napster?
[Mark shakes his head]
Sean Parker: The girl I loved in high school was with the co-captain of varsity lacrosse team and I wanted to take her from him. So I decided to come up with the next big thing.
Mark Zuckerberg: I didn’t know that.
Sean Parker: Napster wasn’t a failure. I changed the music industry for better and for always. It may not have been good business but it pissed a lot of people off. And isn’t that what your Facemash was about? They’re scared of me pal and they’re gonna be scared of you. What the VC’s wanted to say “Good idea, kid. Grownups will take it from here”. But not this time. This is our time. This time you’re gonna…you’re gonna hand ’em a business card that says “I’m CEO Bitch”. That’s what I want for you.
Sean Parker: This is a once in a generation holy shit idea and the water under the Golden Gate is freezing cold. Look at my face and tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about.
[after meeting Price Albert during the party held for rowing crew competitors]
Tyler Winklevoss: So you flew all the way out here to see that?
Divya Narendra: Wouldn’t have missed it brother. How’s the royalty?
Cameron Winklevoss: Uh, I just wanted him to tell me a couple more times how close the race was. Just brutal, brutally, brutally excruciating! Jesus…
Divya Narendra: Cam, the guy’s a prince of a country the size of Nantucket. Relax, it’s fine.
[after finding out that Facebook has expanded to UK Universities]
Tyler Winklevoss: I don’t mind that we lost to the Dutch today by less than a second. That was a good race, and that was a fair race and they’ll see us again. What I mind and what you should mind is showing up on Monday for a race that was run on Sunday. We tried talking to him ourselves, we tried writing a letter, we tried the Ad Board and we tried talking to the President of the University. Now I am asking you for the last time let’s take the considerable resources at our disposal and sue him in a federal court.
Divya Narendra: Come on!
Cameron Winklevoss: I need a real drink.
[he starts to walk out the room but stops and turns]
Cameron Winklevoss: Screw it! Let’s gut the frigging nerd!
Sean Parker: You think you know me, right?
Eduardo Saverin: I’ve read enough.
Sean Parker: You know how much I’ve read about?
[Eduardo shakes his head]
Sean Parker: Nothing.
[after Eduardo has turned up in California to find Sean has moved in with Mark and working on Facebook]
Mark Zuckerberg: So how is Christy?
Eduardo Saverin: Christy’s crazy.
Mark Zuckerberg: Is that fun?
Eduardo Saverin: Nope. She’s actually psychotic. She’s insanely jealous, she is irrational and I’m…I’m frightened of her.
Mark Zuckerberg: Still, it’s nice you have a girlfriend.
[referring to Sean]
Eduardo Saverin: I do not want that guy representing himself as part of this company.
Mark Zuckerberg: You’ve gotta move here, Wardo, this is where it’s all happening.
Mark Zuckerberg: I’m afraid if you don’t come out here you’re gonna get left behind. I want…I…I want, I need you out here. Please don’t tell him I said that.
Eduardo Saverin: What did you just say?
Mark Zuckerberg: He’s moving faster than any of us ever imagined it would. It’s moving fast.
Eduardo Saverin: What did you mean get left behind?
[whilst waiting to meet Peter Theil]
Sean Parker: You know this is where they filmed Towering Inferno.
Mark Zuckerberg: That’s comforting.
[Christy shows up in Eduard’s apartment after he’s returned from California]
Christy: And when were you gonna call me?
Eduardo Saverin: Chris, it was kind of rough trip and I was tired…
Christy: And or answer one of my forty seven texts? Did you know I sent forty seven texts?
Eduardo Saverin: I did and I thought that was incredibly normal behavior.
Christy: Are you mocking me?
Christy: Why does you status say “single” on your Facebook page?
Eduardo Saverin: What?
Christy: Why does your relationship status say “single” on you Facebook page?
Eduardo Saverin: I was single when I set up the page.
Christy: And you just never bothered to change it?
Eduardo Saverin: I…
Eduardo Saverin: I don’t know how.
Christy: Do I look stupid to you?
Eduardo Saverin: No. Calm down.
Christy: You’re asking me to believe that the CFO of Facebook doesn’t know how to change his relationship status on Facebook?
Christy: No. You didn’t change it so you could screw those Silicon Valley sluts every time you go out to see Mark.
Eduardo Saverin: That isn’t even remotely true. And I can promise you that the Silicon Valley sluts don’t care what anyone’s relationship status is on Facebook.
[Eduardo’s cell phone rings and Christy grabs it]
Christy: It’s Mark.
[she throws the phone to Eduardo]
Eduardo Saverin: Okay, this is gonna be tricky. Uh…open your present. It’s a silk scarf.
Christy: Have you ever seen me wear a scarf?
Eduardo Saverin: This’ll be your first.
[on the phone]
Mark Zuckerberg: You froze the account.
Eduardo Saverin: I had to get your attention, Mark.
Mark Zuckerberg: Do you realize that you jeopardized the entire company? Do you realize that your actions could have permanently destroyed everything I’ve been working on?
Eduardo Saverin: We have been working on.
Mark Zuckerberg: Without money the site can’t function. Okay, let me tell you the difference between Facebook and everybody else; we don’t crash, ever! If the servers are down for even a day our entire reputation is irreversibly destroyed.
[whilst on the phone to Mark, Eduardo sees Christy set the scarf he’s given her on fire]
Mark Zuckerberg: Did you like being nobody? Did you like being a joke? Do you wanna go back to that?
Eduardo Saverin: Hang on! Hang on! Hang on! Hang on!
[he put his phone down and puts Mark on speaker while he tries to put the fire out]
Mark Zuckerberg: That was the act of a child, not a businessman. And it certainly was not the act of a friend! Do you know how embarrassed I was for me to try to cash a check today? I’m not going back to that life.
[after he’s put the fire put the fire]
Eduardo Saverin: Look, I’m sorry! I was angry and maybe it was childish, but I had to get your attention.
Mark Zuckerberg: Wardo, I said I got some good news.
Eduardo Saverin: What is it?
Mark Zuckerberg: Peter Theil just made an angel investment of half a million dollars.
Eduardo Saverin: What?
Mark Zuckerberg: Half million dollars. And he’s setting us up in an office. They wanna re-incorporate the company, they wanna meet you. They need your signature on some documents so you got to get your ass on the first flight back to San Francisco. I need my CFO.
[at the Facebook office, Eduardo is meeting with the lawyers]
Eduardo Saverin: So how many shares of stock will I own?
Facebook Lawyer 1: Uh…one million three hundred and twenty eight thousand and three hundred and thirty four.
Eduardo Saverin: Jesus Christ!
Facebook Lawyer 1: That represents a thirty four point four percent ownership share. Why the increase from the original thirty percent?
Eduardo Saverin: Because you may need to dilute it to award shares to new investors.
Facebook Lawyer 2: You should know that Marks has already taken his percentage from sixty down to fifty one.
Eduardo Saverin: Well, Mark doesn’t care about money and he needs to be protected.
Facebook Lawyer 1: Uh…Dustin Moskowitz owns six point eighty one percent, Sean Parker six point forty seven percent.
Eduardo Saverin: I can live with that.
Facebook Lawyer 1: And Peter Theil seven percent. Would you like to use my pen?
[at the deposition the court reporter repeats the question that was put to Eduardo]
Court Reporter: Counsel: “And when you signed these documents were you aware that you were signing your own death certificate?”
Eduardo Saverin: No. It was insanely stupid of me not to have my own lawyers look over all the…in…in all honesty I thought they were my lawyers.
[he turns his chair and looks over to Mark]
Eduardo Saverin: I was your only friend. You got one friend.
[he turns his back to Mark again]
Eduardo Saverin: My father won’t even look at me.
[at the Facebook office]
Mark Zuckerberg: But you gotta come back. Somewhere around the end of November, early December. Peter wants to throw us an amazing party when we hit a million members, it’s gonna be out of control. You gotta come back for it.
Eduardo Saverin: A million members.
Mark Zuckerberg: Yeah.
Eduardo Saverin: Remember the algorithm on the window at Kirkland?
Mark Zuckerberg: Yeah.
Eduardo Saverin: Yeah, I’ll be here.
[Sean drives Marks to a big office building. Mark is dressed in his pajamas]
Mark Zuckerberg: You sure about this?
Sean Parker: You’re twenty minute late. You’re gonna walk in there and say you overslept and didn’t have time to get dressed. They’re gonna pitch you. Case Equity is going to pitch you. They’re gonna beg you to take their money. You’re gonna nod, you’re gonna nod, you’re gonna nod and then you’re gonna say; “Which one of you is Roth?” No not Roth, Manningham. “Which one of you is Mitchell Manningham?” And he’ll say; “I am”. And you say; “Sean Parker says ‘Fuck you’. Walk out.
Mark Zuckerberg: Okay.
[back at the deposition]
Eduardo Saverin: In late November I got the email from Mark, telling me to come out for the millionth member party.
Gretchen: What else did the email say?
Eduardo Saverin: It said that we had to have a business meeting. That Mark and Sean had played some kind of revenge stunt on Case Equity and that Manningham was so impressed that he was now making an investment offer that was hard to turn down. So I went to California, and I went straight to the new offices. I didn’t know whether to dress for the party or for the business meeting so I kind of dressed for both. But it didn’t matter.
Gretchen: Why not?
Eduardo Saverin: Because I wasn’t called out there for either one.
Gretchen: What were you called out there for?
Eduardo Saverin: An ambush.
[referring back to his meeting with the Facebook lawyer]
Eduardo Saverin: At first I thought he was joking, giving me more contracts to sign. But then I started reading.
[at the Facebook office after Eduardo has read the papers the lawyer had given him]
Eduardo Saverin: [angrily] You issued twenty four million new shares of stock.
Mark Zuckerberg: You were told that if new investors came along…
Eduardo Saverin: How much of your shares were diluted? How much were his?
[pointing to Sean]
Gretchen: What was Mr. Zuckerberg’s ownership share diluted down to?
Eduardo Saverin: It wasn’t.
Gretchen: What was Mr. Moskowitz’s ownership share diluted down to?
Eduardo Saverin: It wasn’t.
Gretchen: What was Sean Parker’s ownership share diluted down to?
Eduardo Saverin: It wasn’t.
Gretchen: What was Peter Theil’s ownership share diluted down to?
Eduardo Saverin: It wasn’t.
Gretchen: And what was your ownership share diluted down to?
Eduardo Saverin: Point zero three percent.
[at the Facebook office after Eduardo’s confronted Mark about his diluted shares]
Mark Zuckerberg: You signed the papers.
Eduardo Saverin: You set me up!
Mark Zuckerberg: You’re gonna blame me because you were the business head of the company and you made a bad business deal with your own company?
Eduardo Saverin: It’s gonna be like I’m not part of Facebook!
Sean Parker: It won’t be like you’re not a part of Facebook, you’re not a part of Facebook.
Eduardo Saverin: My name’s on the masthead.
Sean Parker: You think we were gonna let you parade around in your ridiculous suits pretending you were running this company?
Eduardo Saverin: [shouting] Sorry! My Prada’s at the cleaners along with my hoodie and my fuck-you-flip-flops you pretentious douchebag!
Eduardo Saverin: I’m not signing those papers.
Sean Parker: We will get the signature.
Eduardo Saverin: Tell me this isn’t about me getting into the Phoenix.
Eduardo Saverin: You planted that story about the chicken.
