ok listen to me because i will only say this once.























EDUARDO:
MARK doesn’t look up from his computer--
Mark?
EDUARDO: (CONT’D)
Mark.
MARK still doesn’t look up--
SEAN:
He’s wired in.
EDUARDO: (pause)
I’m sorry?
SEAN:
He’s wired in.
EDUARDO:
Is he?
SEAN:
Yes.
EDUARDO picks up MARK’s laptop over his head and smashes it down on the desk, breaking it into pieces.
EDUARDO:
How ‘bout now, are you still wired in?
SEAN:
(to the girl at the desk he’s
leaning against) Call security.
Everyone in the office is frozen, silent and watching.
EDUARDO:
You issued over 24-million new shares of
stock.
MARK:
You were told that if new investors came
along--
EDUARDO:
How much were your shares diluted? How
much were his?!
CUT TO:
INT. FIRST DEPOSITION ROOM - EVENING
GRETCHEN:

EDUARDO:
It wasn’t.
GRETCHEN:

diluted down to?
EDUARDO:
It wasn’t.
GRETCHEN:

GRETCHEN:

EDUARDO:

GRETCHEN:
What was your ownership share diluted
down to?
EDUARDO: (pause)
Point-zero-three percent.
CUT TO:
INT. NEW FACEBOOK OFFICES - NIGHT
MARK:
You signed the papers.
EDUARDO:
You set me up.
MARK:
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:
It’s gonna be like I’m not part of
Facebook.
SEAN:
It’s won’t be like you’re not part of
Facebook, you’re not part of Facebook.
EDUARDO:
My name’s on the masthead.
SEAN:
You might wanna check again.
EDUARDO is momentarily frozen...
EDUARDO:
This is because I froze the account?
SEAN:
You think we were gonna let you parade
around in your ridiculous suits pretending you were running this company?
EDUARDO:
Sorry, my Prada’s at the cleaners along
with my hoodie and my fuck-you flip-flops you pretentious douchebag.
SEAN:
Security’s here. You’ll be leaving now.
Two SECURITY GUARDS have come in--
EDUARDO:
I’m not signing those papers.
SEAN:
We’ll get the signature.
EDUARDO: (turning to MARK)
Tell me this isn’t about me getting into the Phoenix!
(pause)
EDUARDO: (CONT’D)
You did it. I always knew you did it. You
planted the story about the chicken.
SEAN: (pause)
What is he talking about?
EDUARDO:
You had me accused--
SEAN:
Seriously, what the hell’s the chicken?
EDUARDO:
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 comin’ back for my 30 percent, I’m comin’ back for everything!
