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.
Sy: 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.
The Social Network Quotes



[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 it's 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 programme 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.
The Social Network QuotesMark 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. Grown ups 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.



[to Mark]
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.



[to Mark]
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.
The Social Network Quotes



[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 kinda 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 incredibaly normal behaviour.
Christy: Are you mocking me?



Christy: Why does you status say 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 bothere to change it?
Eduardo Saverin: I...
Christy: What?
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 evertime 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 businesman. And it certainly was not the act of a friend! Do you know how embarresed 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?

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 Fransisco. 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?"

[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?
The Social Network QuotesSean 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 you 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.
[to Mark]
Eduardo Saverin: Tell me this isn't about me getting into the Phoenix.



Eduardo Saverin: You planted that story about the chicken.
Mark Zuckerberg: I didn't plant the story about the chicken.
Sean Parker: What's he talking about?
Eduardo Saverin: You had me accused of animal cruelty.
Sean Parker: Seriously, what the hell's the chicken?
Eduardo Saverin: And I'll bet what you hated the most is that they identified me as a co-founder of Facebook, which I am! You better lawyer up asshole, cause I'm not coming back for thirty percent, I'm coming back for everything!



[as Eduardo's leaving the Facebook office]
Sean Parker: Hang on. I almost forgot, here's your nineteen thousand dollars. I wouldn't cash it though, I drew it on the account your froze.
[Eduardo quickly goes to punch Sean in the face but Sean flinches back]
Eduardo Saverin: I like standing next to you, Sean. It makes me look so tough.



[after Eduardo's left the building]
Mark Zuckerberg: You were kinda of rough on him.
Sean Parker: That's life in the NFL.
Mark Zuckerberg: You know you didn't have to be that rough on him.
The Social Network Quotes



[Sean's on the phone to Mark after his party was raided by the police]
Sean Parker: Listen, something's happened.
[Mark listens to Sean's end of the conversation]
Mark Zuckerberg: Shit!
Sean Parker: It's all right. It's gonna be all right. I posted bail and I wasn't doing anything. I mean I've got allergies.
Mark Zuckerberg: Interns.
Sean Parker: It was just a party.
Mark Zuckerberg: This is gonna be news, Sean. It's gonna be online any second.



Mark Zuckerberg: I will get it under control. I will call someone and see what the next move is, but this is gonna be news now.
Sean Parker: You don't think Eduardo was involved do you? I mean do you think...
Mark Zuckerberg: No.
Sean Parker: Or Manningham? One of them. Somebody...somebody sent the coke in there because I got in there...you believe me? This is gonna be fine.
[Mark doesn't answer]
Sean Parker: Right?
Mark Zuckerberg: Go home, Sean.
[he closes his phone shut]



[Marlyn walks in the deposition conference room where Mark is sitting alone after]
Marylin Delpy: What happened to Sean?
Mark Zuckerberg: He still owns seven percent of the company.



Mark Zuckerberg: I'm not a bad guy.
Marylin Delpy: I know that. When there's emotional testimony I assume eighty five percent of it is exaggeration.
Mark Zuckerberg: And the other fifteen?
Marylin Delpy: Perjury. Creation myths need a devil.



[referring to his lawyers decision]
Mark Zuckerberg: They're gonna settle?
Marylin Delpy: Oh, yeah. And you're gonna have to pay a little extra.
Mark Zuckerberg: Why?
Marylin Delpy: So that these guys sign a non-disclosure agreement. They say one unflattering word about you in public you own their wife and kids.
Mark Zuckerberg: I invented Facebook.



Marylin Delpy: I've been licensed to practice law for all of twenty months and I could get a jury to believe that you planted the story about Eduardo and the chicken. Watch what else. Why weren't you at Sean's sorority party that night?
Mark Zuckerberg: You think I'm the one that called the police?
Marylin Delpy: Doesn't matter. I asked the question now everybody's thinking about it. You've lost your jury in the first ten minutes.



Mark Zuckerberg: Farm animals?
Marylin Delpy: Yeah.
Mark Zuckerberg: I was drunk and angry and stupid.
Marylin Delpy: And blogging.
Mark Zuckerberg: And blogging.
Marylin Delpy: Pay them. In the scheme of things it's a speeding ticket. That's what Sy will tell you tomorrow.



[last lines]
Mark Zuckerberg: Thanks. I appreciate your help today.
Marylin Delpy: You're not an asshole, Mark. You're just trying so hard to be.
[Marylin leaves. Mark logs onto Facebook and sends a 'request to add as friend' to Erica Albright]
