The Social Network script
Synopsis: In 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer genius Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) begins work on a new concept that eventually turns into the global social network known as Facebook.

Based on the book "The Accidental Billionaires."

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.
