                                                          May 28, 2009
                         

                         

          FROM THE BLACK WE HEAR--

                         MARK (V.O.)
          Did you know there are more people with
          genius IQ's living in China than there
          are people of any kind living in the
          United States?

                         ERICA (V.O. )
          That can't be true.

                         MARK (V.O.)
          it is true.

                         ERICA (V.O.)
          What would account for that?

                         MARK (V.0.)
          Well first of all, a lot of people live
          in China. But here's my question:

                         FADE IN

          INT. CAMPUS BAR - NIGHT

          MARK ZUCKERBERG is a sweet looking 19 year old whose lack of
          any physically intimidating attributes masks a very
          complicated and dangerous anger. He has trouble making eye
          contact- and sometimes it's hard to tell if he's talking to you
          or to himself.

          ERICA, also 19, is Mark's date. She has a girl-next-door face
          that makes her easy to fall for. At this point in the
          conversation she already knows that she'd rather not be there
          and her politeness is about to be tested.

          The scene is stark and simple.

                         MARK
          How do you distinguish yourself in a
          population of people who all got 1600 on
          their SAT's?

                         ERICA
          I didn't know they take SAT's in China.

                         MARK
          I wasn't talking about China anymore, I
          was talking about here.

                         ERICA
          You got 1600?

                         MARK
          You can sing in an a Capella group.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          2.

                         BRICA
          Does that mean that you actually got
          nothing wrong?

                         MARK
          Or you row crew or you invent a 25 dollar
          PC.

                         ERICA
          Or you get into a final club.

                         MARK
          Or you get into a final club, exactly.

                         ERICA
          I like guys who row crew.

                         MARK

                         (BEAT)
          Well I can't do that. And yes, it means I
          got nothing wrong on the test.

                         ERICA
          Have you ever tried?

                         MARK
          I'm trying now.

                         ERICA
          To row crew?

                         MARK
          To get into a final club. To row crew?
          No. Are you, like--whatever--crazy?

                         ERICA
          Sometimes, Mark-seriously-YOU say two
          things at once and I'm not sure which one
          we're talking about.

                         MARK
          But you've seen guys who row crew, right?

                         ERICA
          No.

                         MARK
          Okay, well.. they're bigger than me.
          They're world class athletes. And a
          second ago you said you like guys who row
          crew so I assumed you'd met one.

                         ERICA
          I guess I meant I liked the idea of it.
          The way a girl likes cowboys.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          3.

                         MARK
          The Phoenix is good.

                         ERICA
          This is a new topic?

                         MARK
          It's the same topic.

                         ERICA
          We're still talking about the finals
          clubs?

                         MARK
          Would you rather talk about something
          else?

                         ERICA
          It's just that since the beginning of
          the conversation about finals clubs I
          think I may have had a birthday.

                         MARK
          We can change the subject.

          ERICA.
          (can't get over it)
          There are more people in China with genius
          IQ's than the entire population of--

                         MARK
          It's about exclusivity.

                         T'RICA
          .....what is?

                         MARK
          The final clubs. And that's how you
          distinguish yourself. The Phoenix is the
          most diverse. The Fly Club, Roosevelt
          punched the Porc.

                         ERICA
          Which one?

                         MARK
          The Porcellian, the Porc, it's the best
          of the best.

                         ERICA
          I actually meant which Roosevelt.

                         MARK
          Theodore.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          4.

                         ERICA
          Okay, well, which is the easiest one to
          get into?

          MARK takes a cigarette from a pack, lights it, takes a drag
          and blows the smoke out before he says...

                         MARK
          Hm.

                         ERICA
          What?

                         MARK
          why would you ask me that?

                         ERICA
          I was just asking.

                         MARK
          They're all hard to get into. My friend
          Eduardo made $300,000 betting on oil
          futures last summer and he won't get in.
          Money or the ability to make it doesn't
          impress anybody around here. Everybody
          can do that.

                         ERICA
          He made $300,000 in a summer?

                         MARK
          He likes meteorology.

                         ERICA
          You said it was oil futures.

                         MARK
          If you can predict the weather you can
          predict the price of heating oil. You
          asked me that because you think the final
          club that's easiest to get into is the
          one where I'll have the best chance,

                         ERICA

                         (BEAT)
          I've lost my place again.

                         MARK
          You asked me which one was the easiest to
          get into because you think that's where I
          have the best chance.

                         ERICA
          The one that's easiest to get into would
          be the one where anybody had the best
          chance.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          S.

                         MARK
          I just think you asked--the placement of
          where you asked the question--

                         ERICA
          I was honestly just asking. Okay? I was
          asking just to ask. Mark, I'm not
          speaking in code.

                         MARK
          Erica--

                         ERICA
          You're obsessed with the finals clubs.
          You have finals clubs OCD and you need to
          see someone about this who'll prescribe
          some sort of medication. You don't care
          if side effects may include blindness,
          okay, just do it.

                         MARK
          Final clubs. Not finals clubs and there's
          a difference between being obsessed and
          being motivated.

                         ERICA
          Yes there is.

                         MARK
          Well you do--that was cryptic--so you do
          speak in code.

                         ERICA
          I didn't mean to be cryptic.

                         MARK
          I'm saving I need to do something
          substantial in order to get the attention
          of the clubs.

                         ERICA
          Why?

                         MARK
          Because they're exclusive.

                         (BEAT)
          And fun and they lead to a better life.

                         ERICA
          You think Teddy Roosevelt got elected
          president because he was a member of the
          Phoenix Club?

                         MARK
          He was a member of the Porcellian and yes
          I do.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          6.

                         ERICA
          Maybe he sang in an a Capella group.

                         MARK
          I want to be straight forward and tell
          you that I think you should be a lot more
          supportive. If I get in I'll be taking
          you to the parties and you'll be meeting
          people that you wouldn't normally get to
          meet.

                         ERICA

                         (SMILES)
          You would do that for me?

                         MARK
          You're my girlfriend.

                         ERICA
          okay, well I want to be straight forward
          and tell you that I'm not anymore.

                         MARK

                         (BEAT)
          What do you mean?

                         ERICA
          I'm not your girlfriend anymore,

                         MARK
          Is this a joke?

                         ERICA
          No, I'm sorry, it's not.

                         MARK
          You're breaking up with me?

                         ERICA
          You're going to introduce me to people I
          wouldn't normally get to meet? What the
          fuck is that supposed to mean?

                         MARK
          Take it easy.

                         ERICA
          What was it supposed to mean?

                         MARK
          It was--Erica, the reason we're able to
          sit here and drink is that you used to
          sleep with the door guy.

                         ERICA

                         (PAUSE)
          I want to really try not to lose it now.

                         ERICA (CONT'D)
          The door guy's name is Bobby. I haven't
          slept with the door guy, the door guy's a
          friend of mine. He's a perfectly good
          class of people and what part of Long
          Island are you from--England?

          You don't have to study. Let's just talk.

          Why?

                         ERICA
          Because it's exhausting. Going out with
          you is like dating a stairmaster.

          that that won't be true. It'll be because

          preparations under way for the hottest party on campus
          tonight.
          We start on a good looking STUDENT fixing his tie in the
          bathroom mirror. He walks out of the bathroom and into the
          main area where he's immediately tossed a bottle of champagne
          by a similarly dressed STUDENT. We see that there are a
          couple of dozen other guys around. Our guy takes the champagne
          bottle and sticks it on the bar, which is being stocked by two
          sexy FEMALE uniformed BARTENDERS.
          Our guy walks past P. DJ's table where the DJ is setting up his
          incredibly high-end equipment.
          Our guy trots down a set of mahogany and red-carpet stairs,
          opens a heavy door and looks out to the sidewalk.

          year it's on. I'm not gonna do the farm
          animals but I like the idea of comparing
          two people together. It gives the whole
          thing a very Turing feel since people's
          ratings of the pictures will be more
          implicit than, say, choosing a number to
          represent each person's hotness like they
          do on hotornot.com. The first thing we're
          going to need is a lot of pictures.
          Unfortunately, Harvard doesn't keep a
          public centralized facebook so I'm going

          They had open water after a hundred
          meters. I don't think we're gonna catch
          'em today.
           And we PULL BACK TO REVEAL that there's a fourth boat which is
          already five boat, ngths ahead of the other three.

                         3-1
          The fourth boat is being crewed by CAMERON and TYLER
          WINKLEVOSS----identical twins who stepped out of an ad for
          Abercrombie and Fitch.
          They know that the others aren't in their class and even
          though they're highly competitive athletes, they don't like
          showing anyone up, least of all their teammates.

                         CAMERON
          Is there anyway to make this a fair
          fight?

                         TYLER
          We could jump out and swim.

                         CAMERON
          I think we'd have to jump out and drown.

                         TYLER
          I'm not willing to do that.

                         CAMERON
          What are we at three-quarter power? Let's
          drop down to a half.

                         TYLER
          Or you could row forward and I could row
          backward.

                         CAMERON
          I'd kick your ass.

                         TYLER
          We're genetically identical, so biology
          and mathematics says we'd stay in one
          place not allowing for the current or the
          wind.

                         CAMERON
          Just row the boat.

          Everyone knows and loves them in this 200 year old dining hall
          and they wave and shout to a few people and whisper to a
          couple of very pretty girls before taking a seat next to DIVYA
          NARENDRA, a nice looking Indian student whose face is in a
          copy of the Crimson.

          MARX is in his Operating Systems class. This is considered the
          hardest class at Harvard and MARK is one of the 50 students
          with their laptops open as the professor takes them through an
          impossibly difficult lesson,

                         PROFESSOR
          So let's look at a sample problem:
          Suppose we're given a computer with a 16-
          bit virtual address and a page size of
          256 bytes.
          A GIRL scribbles something on a piece of paper. Then hands it
          to the student next to her and nods that it should be passed
          over to MARK. While that's happening--

                         PROFESSOR (CONT'D)
          The system uses one-level page tables,
          which start at address 0x0400. Maybe you
          want to have DMA. on your 16-bit system,
          who knows? The first few pages are
          reserved for hardware flags, etc.
          MARK opens the note., It reads "Asshole".
          He looks over and sees a couple of GIRLS looking at him with
          contempt.

                         PROFESSOR (CONT'D)
          Assume page table entries have eight
          status bits.
          MARK closes his laptop, gets up and starts to head out of the
          hall.

                         PROFESSOR (CONT'D)
          The eight status bits would be--

          At any time in the three weeks prior to
          Mark telling you his idea, did he mention

          Yes. He said they'd asked him to work on
          their site but that he'd looked at what
          they had and decided it wasn't worth his

          Yes. He resented--Mark resented that they-
          --that your clients, probably thought he
          would jump at the chance to rehabilitate
          his image after the Facemash thing but
          Mark didn't want to rehabilitate
          anything. With Facemash he'd beaten the
          Harvard computers, he'd beaten the Ad
          Board and he made the girls mad. Facemash
          did what he wanted it to do.
          MARK kind of nods a little to himself. It should be noted that
          these depositions have an extra element of dish ort as
          everything is being said within a few feet of the peop" being

          that it's a frigid, snowy February day in Cambridge but MARK'::
          in his hoodie and cargo shorts nonetheless. It looks like he
          hasn't slept in days.. On his monitor we can see that he's
          working on the profile page for theFacebook.
          DUSTIN MOSKOWITZ steps up to him quietly,

          makes his way with speed and intent up a flight of stairs.
          Then another.
          And then another until he gets to his floor. He sprints down
          his hall toward his dorm room and barely notices EDUARDO
          leaning against the door.

          The CAMERA surveys the screen as MARK slips through some
          functions to show EDUARDO and we see things that are now

          What'd you write?.
          MARK goes back to the profile page. There's a new area to be

          THE CROCODILLOS, Harvard's oldest male a Capella group, are
          singing at the front of the pub in their usual uniform of
          white tie and tails.
          Incongruously, but with surprisingly nice results, the group
          is covering a song from The Backstreet-Boys--"I Want it That
          Way"--and the pub full of students is loving it.
          We find a table in the back where DIVYA is sitting with some
          of his friends who are having a nice time. DIVYA's got his
          laptop open.

                         MALE FRIEND
          When did the Crocodillos start covering

          Good point, 'cause Cole Porter and Irving

          DIVYA shuts his laptop, grabs it off the table and starts to
          bolt out of the pub. His foot gets caught on a chair leg and
          he falls hard face-first to the floor.

                         DIVYA (CONT'D)

          They're focused and charging away in perfect sync when the

          I had no idea whether they came from
          money or not.

          Tate Winklevoss founded the firm and its
          assets are in the hundreds of millions.

          Hey.

                         (TO MARK)
          So it's safe to say you were aware that
          my clients had money?

                         MARK
          Yes.

                         GAGE
          Let.me tell you why I'm asking. I'm
          wondering why, if you needed a thousand
          dollars to start up your project, you
          didn't ask my clients for it. They'd
          demonstrated to you an interest in this
          kind of thing so--

                         MARY
          From that you're deducing that I didn't
          go to them because I didn't want them to
          know what I was working on? I went to my
          best friend for the money because he's
          who I wanted to be partners with because
          of our similar vision and his superior
          business skills. Eduardo was president of
          the Harvard Investors Association and he
          was my best friend.

          The lamps in Harvard Yard light the snow falling.

                         SPEAKER (VO)
          The seminal event for me was when he was
          in Harvard Square and picked up a copy of
          Popular Electronics Magazine that ha the
          MITS Altair Kit on the cover.

          INT. AUDITORIUM -- SAME TIME

          There's a lower-level and a balcony and both are full.
          MARK and EDUARDO are sitting in the second to last row of the
          balcony.
          We'll hear the SPEAKER but we'll only get to see him in a
          slightly blurry image as our attention is on MARK and EDUARDO.

                         SPEAKER
          And it was a clear day, And I was up in
          my Radcliffe dorm. And he brought that up
          there and said, "Look, it's going to
          happen without us. We've got to do it
          now." And so I said..."Okay."
          He gets an appreciative LAUGH from the STUDENTS.

                         SPEAKER (CONT'D)
          Now the starting•of this industry was
          very humble indeed. The kit computer on
          the cover-of that magazine--
          We HEAR a little muffled giggling coming from the row behind
          MARK and EDUARDO, MARK is too into the speech to notice but
          the giggling registers as a slight annoyance on EDUARDO's
          face.

                         SPEAKER (CONT'D)
          --had an 8080 processor in it, and you
          had to assemble it yourself and it came
          with 256K of memory.
          EDUARDO hears the giggling again and turns around.
          In the row behind them and a few seats over are two beautiful
          Asian students.--ALICE and JENNY. They're a little overly made-
          up for a lecture. JENNY, the one sitting closest to EDUARDO,
          is wearing a short skirt with a white shirt: open one button
          too far down the front and we can see a hint of the red bra
          she's wearing underneath.

          She leans forward and whispers to EDUARDO--

                         EDUARDO

          You know Mark?

                         JENNY
          Didn't he make theFacebook?
          EDUARDO smiles a little ...this has just never happened--

                         EDUARDO
          Yeah. Both of us. It's mine and his. It's
          our--we're--yes.

                         JENNY

                         (STILL WHISPERING)
          Way cool. I'm Jenny. This is Alice.
          EDUARDO can't help noticing--just because it's in his line of
          sight--that down the row from the girls, someone else is
          pointing at them and whispering to a friend.
          Then back to the girls--

                         EDUARDO

                         (WHISPERING)
          Very nice to meet you.

                         JENNY

                         (WHISPERING)
          Facebook me when you get home. Maybe we
          can all go out for a drink later.

                         EDUARDO

                         (WHISPERING)
          Certainly. I'll certainly--absolutely I
          will do that.
          EDUARDO turns back to the speaker, who MARK hasn't taken his
          eyes off of--

                         EDUARDO
          She said "Facebook me" and we can all
          have a drink later. Which is stunningly
          great for two reasons. One, she said

          No, it says I could face legal action.

                         EDUARDO
          It's from a lawyer, Mark. They must feel

          the club.
          And then one of the wooden stall doors flies open and EDUARDO
          is shoved in, followed by JENNY, who did the shoving. She's
          all over him as she presses him back against the divider.
          EDUARDO's hands are sliding under JENNY'S white shirt and

          and unbuckles his belt.

          thump against the divider. JENNY's got his fly unzipped.
          EDUARDO looks down at the space between the stalls. He sees a
          pair of Adidas flip-flops.
          Then the sound of moaning, Before EDUARDO has time to say

                         SEAN
          Technically?

                         AMY
          Yeah.

                         SEAN
          Broke. There's not a lot of money in free
          music. Even less when you're being sued
          by everyone who's ever been invited to
          the Grammys.

                         AMY
          I think you're cool.

                         SEAN
          He too.

                         AMY
          I have to hop in the shower and get ready
          for class. There's juice or anything else
          you can find. Help yourself.

                         SEAN
          You mind if I check my e-mail?

                         

                         

                         

                         

          88,

                         AMY
          Go ahead.
          AMY heads into the bathroom but leaves the door a little ajar..
          SEAN steps over to AMY's pink laptop and hits a key to wake it
          out of sleep mode.
          The shower starts running in the bathroom.
          The laptop springs to life and is open to something SEAN's
          never seen before--a Facebook page.;
          He sees AMY's picture and a short profile: Her major at
          Stanford, courses she's taking, books she likes, clubs she's a.
          member of...

                         SEAN

                         (CALLING)
          Amy?
          She can't hear him in the shower.
          SEAN explores around a little more. He knows his way around a
          computer. He sees her "friends". Friend after friend after
          friend.

          SEAN (CONY' D )
          (almost a whisper)
          Jesus.
          He gets up and goes to the bathroom door--

                         SEAN (CONT'D)
          Amy?

                         AMY

                         (CALLING BACK)

                         YEAH:

                         SEAN
          Can'you come out here?

                         AMY
          Just a second.

                         SEAN
          There's a fire, Amy.

          AMY.
          What?!
          AMY grabs a towel and jumps out of the shower--

                         AMY (CONT'D)
          Where?:

                         

                         

                         

                         

          89.

                         SEAN
          Okay, there isn't a fire, but I need to
          ask you something.

                         AMY
          Are you kidding?!

                         SEAN
          No.

                         AMY
          I could have been killed!

                         SEAN
          I3ow?

                         AMY

                         (BEAT)
          What do you need to ask me?

                         SEAN
          I went to check my e-mail and there's a
          website open on your computer.

                         AMY
          Yeah. After you went unconscious last
          night I went on theFacebook for a while.

                         SEAN
          What's that?

                         AMY
          'iheFacebook? It. started at Harvard and
          standford's had it for about two weeks
          and it's awesome except it's addictive.
          Seriously, I'm on the thing five times a
          day, all my friends are.

                         SEAN
          You mind if I grab a piece of paper and a
          pen?

                         AMY
          What's wrong?

                         SEAN
          Absolutely nothing. It's beautiful.

                         AMY
          What are you talking about?

                         SEAN
          I need to find...
           says „A
          SEAN scrolls down to the bottom of the page where it
          Mark Zuckerberg Production"

                         CUT TO:

          INT. LARRY SUMMERS' OUTER OFFICE - DAY

          CAMERON and TYLER, in dark suits, are waiting to see the
          president of Harvard,
          The President's office is in one of the two oldest university
          buildings in the country, and the SECRETARY sitting at the
          desk i ven older. You get the sense that she thinks Harvard
          would be d -better place if it weren't for all, these students.
          She looks at them and the boys give her a polite smile and a
          small nod before she goes back to her work.

                         CAMERON
          (just making small talk)
          I've never been in this building.

                         SECRETARY
          (without really looking up)
          This building is a hundred years older
          than the country.it's in.

                         CAMERON

                         (THAT'S INTERESTING)
          Hm.

                         SECRETARY
          So do be careful.

                         TYLER
          We're just siting in the chairs.

                         SECRETARY

                         (INTO PHONE)
          Yes_.

                         (INTO PHONE)
          Very good.
          She hangs up the phone.

                         SECRETARY (CONT'D)
          You can go in now.
          She points to a door and CAMERON and TYLER get up, quickly
          straighten themselves, and walk into

          INT. SUMMERS' OFFICE - CONTINUOUS

          LARRY SUMMERS, a large man, is on the phone at his desk in his
          well-appointed office. A fire crackles in the sitting area and
          a 40-ish African-American woman, ANNE, in a pants suit is
          nearby going over some papers.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          91.
          SUMMERS waves the boys in--

                         SUMMERS

                         (INTO PHONE)
          That's just their own stupidity, I should
          have been there.

                         (INTO PHONE)
          Darkness is the absence of light and
          stupidity in that instance was the
          absence of me.
          SUMMERS motions for them to sit and they do. They take in some
          of the photographs around the room---SUMMERS with BILL CtINTON,
          etc.

                         -SUMMERS (CONT'D)

                         (INTO PHONE)
          Catherine, I have students in my office
          now.

                         (INTO PHONE)
          Students.

                         (INTO PHONE)
          Under. grads.

                         (INTO PHONE)
          I don't know, from the looks of it I
          think they want to sell me sets of
          identical Brooks Brothers suits. We'll
          speak later.
          SUMMERS hangs up the phone--

                         SUMMERS (CONT'D)
          Good morning.

                         CAMERON
          Good morning, s_ir. I'm Cameron Winklevoss
          and this is my brother, Tyler.
          CAMERON is extending his hand but instead of taking it,
          SUMMERS reaches to the top of a pile of papers and pulls a ten-
          page letter off the top.

                         SUMMERS
          Why are you here?
          There's silence while SUMMERS appears to read over the
          letter...

                         SUMMERS (CONT'D)
          That wasn't rhetorical.

                         CAMERON
          I'm sorry, I thought you were reading the
          letter.

                         SUMMERS
          I've read the letter.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          92.

                         CAMERON
          Well I think it's pretty self-
          explanatory. We had an idea for a website
          called HarvardConnection--we've since
          changed the name to ConnectU--and Mark
          Zuckerberg stole that idea and--

                         SUMMERS
          What do you want me to do about it?
          CAMERON points to a row of Harvard Student Handbooks on the
          bookshelf behind SUMMERS.

                         CAMERON V
          Well sir, in The Harvard Student
          Handbook, which is distributed to each
          freshman--under the heading "Standards of
          Conduct in the Harvard Community" and the
          sub-heading, "Honesty"--

                         SUMMERS
          Oh dear God.

                         CAMERON
          --it says, "The College expects that all
          students will be honest and forthcoming
          in their dealings with members of this
          community. All students are required to
          respect private and public ownership.
          Instances of theft, misappropriation or
          unauthorized use of or damage to property

                         OR MATERIALS--

                         SUMMERS
          Excuse me, Anne?

                         ANNE
          Yes sir.,

                         SUMMERS
          Punch me in the face.
          (beat--then to CAMERON)
          Go ahead-.

                         CAMERON

                         (BEAT)
          --will result in disciplinary action,
          including the requirement to withdraw
          from the College." That's what is says in
          the handbook.

                         SUMMERS
          When did you memorize that?

                         TYLER
          (a little frustrated with this

                         BULLSHIT)

                         (MORE)

                         

                         

                         

                         

          93.

          TYLER (CONY ' D )
          Sir, it's against University rules to
          steal. from another student, plain and
          simple.

                         SUMMERS
          You've spoken to your R,A.?

                         CAMERON
          Yes sir, and the R.A. made a
          recommendation to the Ad Board but the Ad
          Board won't hear us.

                         SUMMERS
          Have you tried dealing with Mr.
          Zuck.e.rberg directly?

                         CAMERON
          Mr. Zuckerberg hasn't responded to any of
          our e-mails or phone calls for. the last'
          two weeks. He doesn't answer when we
          knock on his door at Kirkland and the
          closest we've come to talking face to
          face is when I saw him on. the quad and
          chased him through Harvard Square.

                         SUMMERS
          You chased him?

                         CAMERON

                         (BEAT)
          I saw him and I know he saw me and I
          started after him and he disappeared

                         SUMMERS
          You know he could have you arrested for
          harassment and attempted assault.

                         TYLER

                         (QUIETLY)
          This isn't happening.

                         SUMMERS
          I don't see this as a University issue.

                         TYLER
          Of course it's a University issue.
          There's a code of ethics and an honor
          code and he violated them both.

                         SUMMERS
          You entered into a code of ethics with
          the university, not with each other.

                         TYLER

                         (BEAT)
          I'm sorry President Summers, what you
          just said makes no sense to me at all.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          94,

                         SUMMERS
          I'm devastated by that.

                         CAMERON
          What my brother means is that if Mark
          Zuckerberg walked into our dorm room and
          stole our computer it would be a
          university issue, right?

                         SUMMERS
          I really don't know. This office doesn't
          handle petty larceny and the only reason
          I agreed to see you--Anne; by did I
          agree to see them?

                         ANNE
          Colleagues of their father.

                         SUMMERS
          So you see?

                         TYLER
          This isn't a petty larceny.

                         CAMERON

                         (CALMING)

                         TY--

                         TYLER
          This idea is potentially worth millions
          of dollars.

                         SUMMERS
          Millions of dollars?

                         CAMERON
          Yes.

                         SUMMERS
          You might be letting your imagination run
          away with you.

                         TYLER
          With all due respect I don't think you're
          in any position to make that call.

                         SUMMERS
          I was U.S. Treasury Secretary, I'm in
          some position to make that call.

                         TYLER
          Letting our imaginations run away with us
          is exactly what we were told to do in
          your freshmen address.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          95.

                         SUMMERS
          Well. I would try letting your-
          imaginations run away with you on a new
          project.

                         TYLER
          You would.

          Everyone at Harvard is inventing
          something or starting a new business in
          their dorm room- Harvard undergraduates
          believe that inventing a job is better
          than getting one so can I suggest again
          that the two of you come up with a new
          new project?

                         CAMERON
          I'm sorry, but that-'s not the point, sir.

                         SUMMERS
          What's the point?

                         CAMERON
          You don't have to be an intellectual
          property expert to understand-the,
          difference between right and wrong.

                         SUMMERS
          And you're saying that I don't?

                         CAMERON
          Of course I'm not saying that.

                         TYLER
          I'm saying that.
          SUMMERS looks at TYLER and then smiles...

                         TYLER (CONT'D)
          Just start another project? Like we're
          making a diorama for the science fair?

                         SUMMERS
          Yes. And if you have a goddam problem
          with that, Mr. Winklevoss, the courts are
          always at your disposal. Athletes don't
          get special treatment at this school.

          Do they get fairness?

          Excuse me, sir, but in your analogy, is
          daddy our father or you?

                         SUMMERS
          Both. Is there anything else I can do for
          you?

          What was the purpose of the trip?

                         EDUARDO
          As CFO, I'd set up some meetings with
          potential advertisers.

          dollar account I'd set up a few months
          earlier.

                         GRETCHEN

          Why?

          Mark was asleep.

          I wasn't asleep.

          Okay. For instance, we wanted Baylor in

          forth behind the five "interviewees" who are intensely typing
          at their keyboards.
          EDUARDO slowly makes his way through the crowd to MARK. He can
          see that on the computer screens are a whole lot of numbers
          and letters that neither he nor we can understand.
          He stands next to MARK and watches this for a moment. Every
          once in a while, one of the contestants will throw back their
          shot of Jack Daniels which will instantly get re-filled by a
          PRETTY ASIAN GIRL. Throughout all this the CHEERING CONTINUES.

          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

          Can I ask--what part of the interns' jobs
          will they need to be able to do drunk?

          MARK is standing on the roof of this small, campus-area house
          as LOUD MUSIC plays. A zi�'line is tied from the chimney and
          runs down over a small swimming pool where it's attached to a
          telephone pole on the other side.
          MARK grabs onto the handle that's connected to the zip line
          and flies out over the pool, jumping in with a splash and
          cheers from DUSTIN and the INTERNS who are waiting their turns
          on the roof.
          DUSTIN pulls the handle back up with_a rope that's been
          rigged, grabs the handle, takes off and jumps into the pool-to
          similar cheers.
          The handle gets pulled back on a rope, an INTERN grabs it,

                         JUMPS--
          --and the brick chimney comes crashing down.
          The INTERN drops into patio furniture as bricks from the
          chimney come cascading down.

          INT. PALO ALTO HOUSE - CONTINUOUS

          The place is computer geek paradise. Computers are everywhere,
          along with some of the empty boxes they came in. Pizza boxes,
          Chinese food containers, empty beer bottles and white boards
          filled with indecipherable code fill the room. There are a
          couple of large mattresses on the floor and a large map of the
          U.S. with pins and tags showing the schools where they've
          already put Facebook and different pins showing the schools
          they're going for.
          As MARK walks to the door, he walks past ANDREW, who's sitting
          at a computer, writing code and completely oblivious to

          This is my girlfriend, Sharon. She lives
          across the street and I was helping her
          move out when we saw the chimney--

                         MARK

          coming and so it smashes into the fireplace.

                         SHARON
          Oh God. I'm so sorry.
          And a brick comes down the chimney and crashes on top of the
          broken glass from the beer bottle.

                         DUSTIN
          You know, ironically, we're paying an
          extra 50 bucks a month 'cause it has a
          working fireplace.

          This house is great. The team is great.
          It's exactly what it should be.

          MARK comes out of the kitchen--

                         MARK
          He's wired in.

                         SEAN

          EXT. RUBY SKYE - NIGHT

          An ultra-hip San Prancisco nightclub where a line of well-
          dressed young people stretches from the clipboard holding
          BOUNCER down the block. The BOUNCER motions to three SEXY
          GIRLS who are let in through the velvet rope. If this reminds
          us of the scene at the final club party at the beginning of
          this story than that's fine.
          The three SEXY GIRLS take us into

          INT. RUBY SKYE - CONTINUOUS

          It's a hundred-year old theater that's been converted into a
          21st Century hot spot for Silicon Valley's rock stars. The
          lower level is a giant dance floor packed"with sweating 20-
          somethings bouncing to pounding house music. There are raised
          blocks where scantily dressed professional. dancers perform non-
          stop. A huge lighting grid hangs from the ceiling shooting
          colored lights and lasers everywhere. Also hanging from the
          ceiling are two trapeze bars with two performers swinging and
          contorting.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          120,
          A WAITRESS holding a tray of colored drinks high over her head
          takes us through the crowd to a spiral staircase that's being
          guarded by two more BOUNCERS with clipboards. The staircase
          leads up to the 2nd level which is all VIP tables that look
          out over the dance floor. Each VIP area has a couple of
          couches and a table covered in bottles of vodka, tequila, rum,
          mixers, ice, glasses and a private waitress who's happy to
          bend over and pour a drink for you,
          And that's where we catch up with MARK and SEAN. Sitting next
          to SEAN is a BEAUTIFUL WOMAN and there's another standing
          behind him and leaning against the couch.
          MARK and SEAN have to speak the music.

                         MARK
          I still can't believe I rented a house
          across the street from you.

                         SEAN
          That's not my house. It was Sharon's. I
          was crashing there for a little. bit while
          I'm taking care of some things. But she's
          done for the summer so she's back at her
          parents' place and I'm homeless.

          was great, but the whole time--almost the
          .whole time we were together., like five
          months--she was giving blow. jobs to the
          co-captain of the lacrosse team. And I
          found out and I was willing to forgive
          her but she told me she loved him. So I
          had this dream that I would make a
          billion dollar company.. Not a million
          dollar company--any hack can do that---a
          billion dollar company. And I would have
          business cards printed up that said, "I'm

          company is here. And what confuses me is
          that in New York, Eduardo introduced
          himself as the business head of Facebook.
          I've been at the front of two of the
          biggest things in the history of the

          EXT. THE THAMES -- DAY

          we're looking at a stone bridge crossing a perfectly straight
          stretch of water against the backdrop of the medieval town of
          Henley, England--founded in 1179.
          And after a moment of placid quiet--

                         ---BOOSHI
          Two razor thin skulls explode out from under the bridge for
          the final, agonizing hundred-meter stretch of the ancient and
          prestigious Henley Royal Regatta.
          The two boats are neck and neck coming out of the bridge. The
          port-side boat is being crewed by the two Dutch members of the
          Ilollandia Roeiclub. The starboard boat is being crewed by a
          pair of identical twins wearing tank tops bearing the "H" of
          Harvard.
          We HEAR the ROAR come up from the CROWD in the viewing
          section. The crowd is dressed as if for opening day at Ascot
          -- the women in flowing dresses and wide-brimmed hats, the men i n
          blazers and brightly colored floral ties.
          But the young men in the boats can barely hear the crowd. Just
          their own breathing as they pull against the longest natural.
          straight stretch of water in the world--a mile and a half
          torture test against the best competition they've ever faced.
          And they're neck and neck. CAMERON and TYLER can't shake the
          Dutch.
          The CROWD is going crazy in their own English way as none of
          them can remember ever seeing two boats this close this late.
          Mixed in with the British crowd is a small contingent waving
          the flag of Holland and a slightly larger contingent of
          Americans.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          124.
          We'll notice a stoic man in a VIP viewing section and latex
          we'll be introduced to him as Cameron and Tyler's father, Next
          to him is their mother, who can barely watch.
          Back on the boats it's just the breathing as the skulls slice
          through the water like jet-powered knives. 50 meters now and
          there's still no daylight between them.
          We see a small trickle of blood from CAMERON's left hand begin
          to stream down his arm.
          25 meters and the Dutch and American fans are going crazy--
          even the British aristocracy can't help but get caught ups
          the closest race in the history of the competition. The 'ATH_PT'�
          is silently willing his boys one more fraction of boat speed--
          the MOTHER has her hands over her mouth in praying position.
          The blood that's covering CAMERON's left arm is being diluted
          by the sweat that's pouring down from his triceps as they dig,
          and pull, and pull, and pull, and---

          POP!
          --the finish gun is fired into the air, the oars come out of
          the water and the bodies of the crewmen slump over.
          CAMERON turns his head to the cheering crowd to see the Dutch
          group holding a giant flag and.jumping up and down. The
          Americans bring their giant flag down and fold it up.
          The two DUTCH CREW. MEMBERS pump their fists in the air and hug
          as the two boats skim along to a gentle stop.
          The MOTHER drops her head-and looks down. The FATHER refuses
          to look away.
          From CAMERON and TYLER, just the'breathing.,

          stand in the Steward's Enclosure, a sprawling and glamorous
          tented area for the exclusive use of members and their guests.
          After a moment, a man in a double breasted navy blazer steps
          out with his retinue in tow. The man is PRINCE ALBERT of
          Monaco. He receives a healthy clapping of golf applause as he
          approaches the stand.

          Brilliant race. Never seen a race that
          close. Less than one second, the steward

          My grandfather, Jack Kelly, was one of
          the premiere rowers of his day. I've been
          coming to Henley for 30 years. Never seen
          a race that close. Have you? Have you
          seen a race that close?
          CAMERON is thinking about starting a war with Monaco right now
          so he lets his brother do the talking.

                         (BEAT)
          No, Your Highness. Mile and a half races
          are more commonly won by a boat length or
          two.

                         PRINCE ALBERT
          Yes, that's absolutely right. Less than a

          say, I suppose it just came down to who
          wanted it more.

          MR. WINKLEVOSS has made his way over...

          Boys.

                         TYLER

                         DIVYA
          How are-you, Mr. Winklevoss.

          MR. WINKLEVOSS
          That was a tough beat. A tough beat.

                         CAMERON
          I'm sorry, dad. You and mom flew all the
          way over.

          MR. WINKLEVOSS
          Listen to me good, you two. Don't you
          ever apologize to me for losing a race
          like that. Don't you ever apologize to
          anyone for losing a race like that.
          Another man comes along, MR. KENWRIGHT.

          Oh. Mr. Kenwright. Dad, this is Mr.
          Kenwright, part of our host family this
          week.

                         KENWRIGHT
          Pleasure to meet you.

          MR. WINKLEVOSS
          Good to meet you.

                         KENWRIGHT
          I just had the most extraordinary phone
          chat with my daughter. She told me that
          she and her friends are all talking about
          the race, which ended just, a half-hour
          ago, via their computers. A new website
          called Facebook. Do you have this in
          America?

          Your daughter doesn't go to school in the

          U.S.?

                         KENWRIGHT
          No no. Cambridge. Majoring in French
          Literature, though I wasn't aware there
          was such a thing.

                         TYLER

                         (PAUSE)
          They have Facebook at Cambridge?

          And Oxford, St. Andrews, Warwick and the
          London School of Economics best as I can
          tell. because that's where her friends
          are.

          MR. WINKLEVOSS
          I'm going to find your mother.

                         KENWRIGIT
          Good race, boys. Live to fight another
          day.

                         TYLER
          Thank you.
          The men leave and CAMERON, TYLER and DIVYA are alone. CAMERON
          looks at them for a moment, then turns back to watching the

                         RACE FILM--

          Turn it off.

                         (PAUSE)
          Turn it off, Cam. Look at me.
          CAMERON turns to his brother...

                         TYLER (CONT'D)
          I don't mind that we got beat by the
          Dutch by less than a second. That was a
          fair race, that was a good race and they
          had the better boat today and they'll see
          us again. What I mind is that we got beat
          by Mark Zuckerberg...by less than a
          second.

                         (BEAT)
          We tried the Ad Board, we tried the
          president of the University and we tried
          talking to him ourselves. Now I'm asking
          you. For the one-hundreth time. Let's
          take the considerable-resources at our
          disposal and sue him in a federal. court.
          CAMERON looks at his brother...then turns back to the
          computer. He watches the Dutch boat pull ahead at the last
          moment. TYLER and DIVYA are just about to give up when CAMERON
          swings back and says--

                         CAMERON
          Let's fucking gut that little nerd.

                         DIVYA

          Finally!

          INT. PALO ALTO HOUSE - NIGHT

          There's a thunderstorm going on outside and rain is beating
          hard against the windows, DUSTIN, ANDREW-and the INTERNS are
          hard at work writing code. Green Day is pumping from the
          speakers.
          SEAN is pacing the house on his cell phone while two YOUNG
          WOMEN--dressed to go out for a party--are at the moment each
          on a free computer playing each other in a game of Counter-
          Strike. Basically they're shooting at each other and missing
          and laughing their heads off,
          it wouldn't appear as if the house has been cleaned since the
          last time we saw it and in fact there are signs of more
          wreckage as well as futons, pillows and blankets on the floor.

                         SEAN

                         (INTO PHONE)
          But check it out, I saw him today.

          Are you guys using Wallhacks or Aimbots?

                         GIRL #1
          we don't know, we're just shooting at
          each other.
          The DOORBELL RINGS but no one pays attention--

                         SEAN
          Use Barr cks.

                         GIRL #1
          Like we know what that is.
          Now there's a KNOCKING at the door and we

          EXT_ PALO ALTO HOUSE - NIGHT
          Ra:i.n is soaking down on EDUARDO as he stands at the front door
          with a suitcase in his hand. A taxi is turning around in the
          driveway and heading off. EDUARDO knocks on the front door
          again as we

          CUT BACK TO.

          INT. PALO ALTO HOUSE - NIGHT


                         SEAN

                         (INTO PHONE)
          I saw him getting into his car and he saw
          me too, I know he did.

                         (BEAT)
          A Porsche Carrera 911 Turbo. Hang on.
          SEAN leans over one of the girls, casually hits a few keys and
          easily kills several of the other girl's soldiers.

                         GIRL #1
          Yes!

                         GIRL #2
          Hey!

                         GIRL #1
          Bong hit.

                         DUSTIN
          Anybody hear that banging?
          While the following is going on, here's what's happening: The
          girls have gone over to a 12-foot bong that starts at the
          floor and goes to the landing at the top of the stairs.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          130,
          it gets lit at the bottom and smoked at the top so the girl
          who just got her soldiers hit trots up the stairs.

                         SEAN

                         (TO DUSTIN)
          You don't hear anything, you're supposed
          to be writing code.

                         DUSTIN
          Dude, somebody's at the door.
          SEAN goes back to the cell phone conversation as he heads to

                         THE DOOR--

                         SEAN

                         (INTO PHONE)
          The guy hires a P.T, to follow me around.
          Who does that in real life? Michael
          Moritz and I are gonna meet in a dark
          alley, I'll take Sequoia Capital down
          with him.
          SEAN opens the door and the soaking wet EDUARDO is standing
          there...

                         EDUARDO
          What the hell.

                         SEAN

                         (INTO PHONE)
          I'll call you back

                         (TO EDUARDO)
          What's up?

                         EDUARDO

                         (LONG PAUSE)
          What's up?

                         (BEAT)
          Mark was supposed to get me at the
          airport two hours ago, I've been calling
          his cell.

                         SEAN
          He was on a 36 hour coding tear so he
          took a nap for a couple of hours.
          EDUARDO walks into the house and surveys the wreckage--

                         EDUARDO
          What in hell happened here?

                         SEAN
          Not happened--happening. The next big
          thing.

                         DUSTIN
          Wardo!

                         

                         

                         

                         

          131.

                         EDUARDO
          Hey man.

                         SEAN

                         (TO DUSTIN)
          Back to work.
          The girl at the bottom of the stairs has filled the bowl and
          lights a lighter--

          GIRT, #1
          You ready?

                         GIRL #2
          Go.
          EDUARDO watches as the girl at the top of the stairs takes a
          12-foot hit from the tower-bong.

                         EDUARDO
          Flow old are they, Sean?

                         SEAN
          It's not polite to ask,

                         EDUARDO
          How old are they?

                         SEAN
          You think you know me, don't you.

                         EDUARDO
          I've read enough.

                         SEAN
          You know how much I've read about you?
          Nothing.
          MARK comes down the stairs--

                         MARK
          Wardo.

                         EDUARDO
          I waited an hour for you at the airport.

                         MARK
          What time is it?

                         EDUARDO
          It's midnight. Or 3AM in New York where I
          just came from.

                         MARK
          You've gotta see some of the new stuff
          we've got. Dustin, show him the wall. I'm
          just calling it the wall.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          132.

                         SEAN
          Forget the wall, tell him about the
          meeting I've got set up with Peter Thiel.

                         (TO EDUARDO)
          You know Peter Thiel?

                         EDUARDO
          No.

                         SEAN
          Why would you? He just runs a two-billion
          dollar hedge fund called Clarium Capital
          and was the money behind PayPal.

                         EDUARDO

                         (TO MARK)
          Why's he setting up meetings?

                         MARK
          Thiel may want to make an angel,
          investment.

                         EDUARDO
          I don't care if he's an actual angel,
          why's he setting up business meetings?

                         MARK
          You've had a long flight.

                         EDUARDO
          No, I've had a long wait on the tarmac at
          JFK, theft a long wait at the passenger
          loading and unloading zone at SFO and in
          between there was a long flight. I run
          the business end of this company, he's a
          house guest living rent-free on a
          generous grant from the Eduardo Saverin
          Foundation.'

                         SEAN
          How's the business end going? I see you
          got some big ticket ad buys lined up.

                         EDUARDO

                         LOOK--

          small step away from bagging Snookies
          Cookies, I can feel it.

          Mark.. .Jesus, I quit the internship.
          We've talked about this on the phone,
          were you even--I quit on my first day.

          I do remember you saying that.

                         EDUARDO
          Yeah, it was a pretty big deal.

          That can be fun.

                         EDUARDO
          No I mean she's actually psychotic. She's
          insanely jealous and she's irrational and
          she's violent.

                         MARK

          Four documents, These two are common
          stock purchase agreements allowing you to
          buy stock in the newly re-incorporated
          Facebook instead of the old stock which
          is now worthless, The third is the
          exchange agreement, that's for exchanging
          your old shares for new shares and this
          is the voter holding agreement.

          That's a 34.4% ownership share. Why the
          rise from the original 30%?

                         EDUARDO
          Because you may need to dilute it to
          award shares to new investors.

                         EDUARDO
          You did it. I always knew you did it. You
          planted the story about the chicken.

                         SEAN

                         (PAUSE)
          What the fuck is he talking about?
          I didn't.

                         EDUARDO
          You had me accused of animal cruelty.

                         SEAN
          Seriously, what the fuck is up with the
          chicken?

                         EDUARDO
          And I'll bet you just hated that they
          identified me as a co-founder of Facebook-
          -which I am! You better lawyer-up,
          asshole, 'cause I'm not comin' for my 30
          percent, I'm comin' after everythin g

                         SEAN

                         (TO SECURITY)
          Get him outa here.

                         EDUARDO
          I'm going.

                         SEAN
          Hang on.
          SEAN hands EDUARDO a•folded check.

                         SEAN (CONT'D)
          There's your $19,000. 1 wouldn't cash it,
          though, I drew it on the account you
          froze.
          EDUARDO looks. at SEAN. . .then suddenly and quickly cocks his
          fist back to punch him in the face. SEAN flinches as EDUARDO
          holds his punch and lets out a small laugh.

                         EDUARDO
          I like standing next to you, Sean. It
          makes me look tough in comparison.
          EDUARDO exits with the security escort.
          There's a long silence in the room...

                         

                         

                         

                         

          151.

                         SEAN
          That's it. That's our show for tonight. I
          want to see everybody here get geared up
          for a party. We're gonna walk down to the
          club like it's the Macy's Thanksgiving
          Parade. Mackey, put it up on the screen,
          we've gotta be almost there.
          A young employee hits a remote and a few keys on his computer
          and a huge flat-screen displays a Facebook page with a read-
          out of the number of members.

          999,982
          There's scattered applause and excitement as everyone watches.
          SEAN takes MARK aside.

                         SEAN (CONT'D)
          You alright?

                         MARK
          Yeah.

                         (BEAT)
          You were kinda rough on him.

                         SEAN
          That's life in the NFL.

                         MARK
          No. You didn't have to be that rough on
          him.

                         SEAN
          Listen, I'm putting together a party-.-

                         MARK
          Sean? You didn't have to be that rough on
          him.

                         SEAN
          I get it. I'll send flowers. I'm putting
          -together a party after the party at Gamma
          Phi Beta. Ashleigh over there's a sister
          and she says her friends are all down..

                         MARK
          Ashleigh?

                         SEAN
          Yeah.

                         MARK
          That's great. I've been, you know, I've
          been talking to her a little. I don't
          know, I think she likes me.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          152,

                         SEAN
          Oh dude.

                         MARK
          What?

                         SEAN
          Yeah.
          An intern, ASHLEIGH, comes along With a small package--

                         ASHLEIGH
          Excuse me, Mark?

          SEAN.
          We were just talkin' about you,Ash.
          We're on for tonight?

                         ASHLEIGH
          Yeah.

                         (TO MARK)
          This came in for you.

                         MARK
          You can put it on my desk.
          ASHLEIGH puts the small package on Mark's desk.

                         SEAN
          She's 19, I can't he.lp it, But I'll tell
          you what--after tonight.she's yours. in
          fact, I'm. gonna get' you in with all sorts

                         MARK
          (blandly to SEAN)
          You'd do that for me?
          MACKEY hits the "refresh" key and the big screen shows--

          1,000,002
          CHEERS erupts throughout the place. SEAN grabs MARK and hugs
          him but MARK doesn't quite hug back--he's still hearing what
          SEAN just said.

          EXT. SORORITY HOUSE - NIGHT

          We can hear the thumping music coming 'from the party inside
          and college kids have spilled out onto the front lawn of this
          pristine, four-columned house.

          INT. SORORITY HOUSE - NIGHT

          It's dark but we can make out people dancing. The place is
          packed.

                         UT TO

          INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT

          We hear the thumping music from the party. SEAN's in there
          with a couple of guys, ASHLEIGH and another GIRL. SEAN's got
          his cell phone out and will snap a picture every once in a
          while.

                         GIRL
          I can't find a mirror.

                         GUY
          Do it on anything. You can use a CD.

                         ASHLEIGH
          Do it off this.
          ASHLEIGH's sat on the bed and unbuttoned her top so that she's
          in just a bra. She's offering her chest as a surface off of
          which to snort cocaine.

                         GIRL
          Alright!
          The GIRL taps out some coke from a vial onto ASHLEIGH's chest
          and starts passing around a rolled up 20-dollar bill for
          everyone to have a turn and she herself will unbutton her
          shirt too for the same purpose. All this while SEAN is
          talking,

                         SEAN
          The next transformative development? A
          picture sharing application. A place
          where you view pictures that coincide
          with your social life. It is the
          true... digitalization of real life. You
          don't just go to a party anymore, you go
          to a party with your digital camera and
          your friends relive the party on
          Facebook. And tagging. The idea that you
          could tag anyone you wanted in those
          pictures so that people could find
          themselves. Then a digital log of every
          change in a person's life, broadcast to
          all their friends instantaneously.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          154,

                         ASHLEIGH
          Would this be easier without the bra?

                         GUY
          It's worth finding out.
          The girls start happily slipping off their bras--

          .SEAN
          I've spent hours--

                         ASHLEIGH
          Why has the music stopped?

                         SEAN
          I've spent hours watching what people do
          when they log on.

                         ASHLEIGH
          Seriously, why has the music stopped?
          ASHLEIGH has a point. The music stopped in the addle of
          SEAN's speech and the sound outside from the party just
          doesn't sound like a party anymore.

                         SEAN
          flow they always checked their friends'
          status updates, checked to see which of
          their friends had changed their profiles,
          changed their photos and mostly...We
          lived on farms, then we lived in cities
          and now we're gonna live on the internet.

                         - ASHLEIGH
          Sean. Stop. Something's going on
          downstairs,
          SEAN stops talking-he senses it too now.
          SEAN walks out of the room to the--

          INT, STAIRCASE LANDING - CONTINUOUS
          And out the window he sees a fleet of police cars with their
          lights flashing parked in front of the house. Then before he
          can react, the front door flies open--
          POLICE with flashlights walk in--the beams of light streaking
          across the darkened party floor and the faces..
          We HEAR muffled murmurs from the cops of "party's over" and
          "step to the side" and "nobody's leaving just yet", etc.
          SEAN bolts back into--

                         

                         

                         

                         

          155.

          INT. BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS

          --leaving the door open.

                         SEAN
          It's the cops.
          And they all spring into action. The girls are putting their
          bras back on, SEAN is wiping down a night table with the palm
          of his hand to get the coke dust off.

                         SEAN (CONT'D)

                         POLICEMAN
          What's goin' on?
          They turn to see TWO POLICEMEN standing in the doorway, their
          flashlights scanning the room and hitting SEAN's eyes.

                         SEAN

                         (BEAT)
          We're sorry, was the music too loud?
          We've got kind of a celebration going.

                         POLICEMAN
          Ladies, I need you to put your shirts on.

                         SEAN
          I can have them turn the music down.
          One of the policemen casually takes SEAN's hand and sees that
          his palm looks like he just used it to erase a blackboard. The
          cop uses his finger to taste what it is.

                         SEAN (CONT'D)
          Yeah, that isn't mine.

                         POLICEMAN
          Okay, could you all stay where you are.
          And the handcuffs start to come out and we've got a room of
          terrified children.

          GIRL,
          Wait, can we just talk for a second?
          We start to move in on SEAM...

                         POLICEMAN

                         (TO SEAN)
          You got anything in your pockets I need
          to know about?

                         SEAN
          No sir.

                         - POLICEMAN
          Don't be stupid now,

                         SEAN
          I don It.

                         POLICEMAN
          (out of SEAN's shirt pocket)
          What's this?

                         SEAN
          It's an Epipen,

                         POLICEMAN
          And this?

                         SEAN
          That's my inhaler.

                         POLICEMAN #2
          Ladies, how old are you?

                         GIRL
          I'm 20.

                          ASHLEIGH

          SEAN closes. his eyes at hearing this news as we HEAR the sound
          of the-cuffs lock around his wrists and we

          SEAN, freezing with no coat on, is sitting on the bottom of

          is standing in back of him.

          Listen, something's happened.
          We see MARK listening on his end but can't hear SEAN's end of
          the conversation.

          Shit.

          I'll get it under control. I'll call our
          guys and see what the next move is. But
          this is gonna be news now.

                         SEAN
          You think it was Moritz? 'Cause I do. And
          I'm gonna meet that guy in a dark alley
          one night. Or Eduardo? Did Eduardo have
          me followed?

                         MARK
          (cool as ice)
          Go home, Sean. I'll call our people.
          MARK clicks the phone shut. He sits there a moment.
          He looks at the small package. that Ashleigh dropped on his
          desk earlier. He opens up the brown paper wrapping and there's
          a box.
          He opens the box--a thousand brand new business cards. He
          takes one of the business cards out and looks at it.
          I'm CEO ...Bitoh
          And over this we HEAR a woman's voice...

          MARYLIN (V.0.)
          Mark?

                         CUT TO:

          INT. FIRST DEPOSITION ROOM - NIGHT

          MARK is sitting alone.-in the conference room. The only one
          left is MARYL?N,whose vo�.ce we just. heard. The lightp of the
          San Francisco skyline fill the huge picture windows.

                         MARYLIN
          Mark?
          MARK looks up at her...

                         MARYLIN (CONT'D)
          Everyone's gone,
          MARK doesn't say anything...

                         MARYLIN (CONT'D)
          We're done for the day,

                         MARK

                         (PAUSE)
          Who would you rather he?

                         

                         

                         

                         

          159.

                         MARYLIN
          I'm sorry?

                         MARK
          My lawyer or their lawyer?

                         MARYLIN

                         (SMILES)
          Something tells me over the long run
          there's more money in being your lawyer.
          What happened to Sean?

                         MAIM
          He cashed out most of his stock. Hey
          listen, all you had all day was that
          salad. You want to get something to eat?

                         MARYLIN
          I can't.

                         MARK
          I'm not a bad guy.

                         MARYLIN
          I know that. I like you.

                         MARK
          What happens now?

                         MARYLIN
          Sy and the rest of them are at the Palm
          having a steak. Then they'll come back, up
          to the office and start working on a
          settlement agreement to present to you.

                         MARK
          They're gonna want to settle?

                         MARYLIN
          Oh yeah. And you're gonna have to pay
          some bonus money too.

                         MARK
          Why?

                         MARYLIN
          'Cause you're gonna need these guys to
          sign a non-disclosure agreement and
          you're gonna need to be indemnified. They
          say one unflattering word about you in
          public and you own their house, wife and
          kids.

                         MARK
          I invented Facebook.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          160.

                         MARYLIN
          I'm talking about what a jury'll see.
          .That's what I do, that's what I'm doing
          here. I'm trying to specialize in voir
          dire--jury selection. Clothes, hair,
          wedding ring, speaking style, likability--

                         MARK
          Likability?

                         MARYLIN
          I've been licensed to practice law for
          all of-20 months and I could get a jury
          to believe you planted the story about
          Eduardo. You know how? Just by asking the
          question. Watch. Why weren't you at the
          sorority party that night?

                         MARK
          You think I'm the one who called the
          police?

                         MARYLIN -
          Doesn't matter, I asked the question and
          now everybody's thinking about it. You
          lost the jury in the first 10 minutes.

                         MARK

                         (PAUSE)
          Farm animals?

          .MARYLIN
          Yeah,

                         MARK
          I was drunk and angry and stupid.

                         MARYLIN
          And blogging.

                         (PAUSE)
          Pay the fine. Get your parking validated.
          Get out of it. That's what Sy and the
          guys'll tell you in the morning.

                         MARK
          Would anyone mind it I stayed and used
          the computer for a minute?

                         MARYLIN
          No. There's a night guy downstairs. Stay
          as long as you want.

                         MARK
          Thanks. I appreciate your help today,

                         MARYLIN
          You're not an asshole, Mark. You just
          want to be.

                         

                         

                         

                         

          161.
          MARYI,IN, who's been putting on her coat, takes her briefcase
          and exits.

          MARK sits down at the computer. He logs on to Facebook.
          He -types a name in the-search box: "Erica Albright".
          Erica's name and picture come up, along with Boston
          University, '07. Mark smiles. She's on Facebook.

          He moves the mouse back and forth between two boxes: "Send a
          Message." and "Add as a Friend".

          He clicks on "Add as a Friend".

          A box comes up that reads: "Your request to add Erica Albright
          as a friend has been sent."

          Then MARK clicks to his homepage and waits for the response.
          And waits...

                         TITLE:

          has been restored to the Facebook masthead as a founder.
          MARK is settling into his chair. He'll wait all night if he
          has to.
