JOANNA:

He needs to talk to you.

ANDREA CUNNINGHAM, the 26-year-old publicist, calls back-

ANDREA:

Yeah.

STEVE:

(to ANDREA)

The exit signs have to be off or

we’re not gonna get a full

blackout.

ANDREA:

We’ve spoken to the building

manager and the fire marshal.

STEVE:

And?

ANDREA:

There’s absolutely no way they’re

letting us turn the exit signs off.

STEVE:

I’ll pay whatever the fine is.

ANDREA:

The fine is they’re gonna come in

and tell everyone to leave.

STEVE:

You explained to the fire marshal

that we’re in here changing the

world?

ANDREA:

I did, but unless we can also

change the properties of fire he

doesn’t care.

JOANNA:

Steve-

STEVE:

If a fire causes a stampede to the

unmarked exits it will have been

well worth it for those who

survive. For those who don’t, less

so but still pretty good.

ANDREA:

Listen-

STEVE:

(still to ANDREA)

I need it to go to black, real

black, get rid of the exit signs

and don’t let me know how you did

it.

(to ANDY)

Fix the voice demo.

STEVE leaves the stage, followed by JOANNA and heads-

2 INT. BACKSTAGE - CONTINUOUS 2

JOANNA:

You need special tools to open the

Mac?

STEVE:

You knew it was a closed system.

JOANNA:

I didn’t know literally, Jesus.

JOANNA opens a door marked “STEVE JOBS” and gives STEVE a

push into-

3 INT. STEVE’S DRESSING ROOM - CONTINUOUS 3

The room’s been set aside as a place for Steve to chill, be

alone and prepare during rehearsals and before the big

presentation.

There’s a Mac (the original Mac) on a small table.

There’s also a large, unopened carton that was recently

delivered.
