Shattered Glass script
Synopsis: Young hotshot journalist Stephen Glass (Hayden Christensen) puts on a good show for his adoring editor, Michael Kelly (Hank Azaria), but admits deep insecurities to his fellow writer, Caitlin Avey (Chloë Sevigny). When Glass begins turning in outrageous stories, his popularity skyrockets, but rival journalist Charles Lane (Peter Sarsgaard) becomes suspicious as to their factual accuracy, and eventually discovers that Glass has been fabricating many of his sources.

I mean, The New York Times

Magazine!

Will you guys

help me with it, please?

- Of course.

- Of course.

Thank you.

Call for you on three, sweetie...

someone from Policy Review.

When did you start talking

to Policy Review?

I'm not. It's probably nothing.

Send it to my voicemail, okay?

- Oh, and sweetie...?

- Mm-hmm?

Caitlin just told me that she needs

gifts for... two showers next week?

You think you might have

something for her?

I'll get my box.

I couldn't resist.

- So, do you want to do this now, or...

Yeah, in a second.

I have to return a quick phone call.

I got you some gum.

Oh...!

If I were to throw a party,

where all we did was play "Monopoly,"

- would you guys come?

- Could I be the little shoe?

Of course.

The lawyers have asked us

to tone down the cover on Serbia.

They have?

- It might invite charges of libel.

I know a little bit of libel law,

it's only relevant if the person in

question has been out of the public eye.

Well, yes.

So there is Serbia, hidden,

unknown to the world

at large, until...

it appeared on the cover
