STEVE (CONT'D)

There are more people who can tell

you about the ad than can tell you

who won the game.

JOANNA:

I understand, but the ad said the

Mac was gonna save the world, it

didn’t say it was gonna say hello.

ANDREA:

We’re gonna open the house in five.

STEVE:

ANDY:

STEVE:

ANDY:

In fairness, not many of them were

issued the tools.

STEVE:

What about you?

ANDY shrugs-

ANDY:

I left them at the office, it was

3 A.M and--

JOANNA:

Oh Jesus Christ--cut “hello.”

STEVE:

No.

JOANNA:

What’s the first rule of a launch?

STEVE:

It’s not gonna crash.

ANDY:

STEVE:
