- What did you expect?

- He's avoiding the issue, man.

- You can't ask him that.

He should run for president, or something.

I'm just gonna of throw these at you.

You know, like they do at the zoo.


It's for you.

- Hello

- Milo? This is Gary Winston.

I've heard great things about

your work, I'm...

hoping you and your friend Teddy

can come up here.

Hey, Larry, you still got

my Union Jack CD?

No, I gave it back.

Ok, I don't know who this is but

your timing really blows

'cause I just saw him in a live chat.

Right, well, a pair of airline tickets

are on there way to you,

I'd love to show you

some of the things we're doing here.

Who was it?

Gary Winston.

Ha, that would be funny.

I just spoke to Gary Winston?

I can't believe you're not going

to take that ticket!

Give it to me!

You don't want to work there, Brian.

They squeeze everybody out of business.

They get bigger and fatter...

That's why I want to work there.

You sure he didn't ask for my number?

Milo, we can't go up there.

They don't even know

the meaning of open source.

You know this,

we've talked about this.

They just want to own everything!

- They clone stuff, reverse engineer it...

- I know

Everybody is stuck with their

inferior proprietary version.

They're being investigated by

the justice department for Christ's sake.

Tell him, Larry.

I think that he should go up there and

check it out if he is curious.

You do?

Sure, I mean... it's your life.

I need another beer.

So, you couldn't convince

your friend Teddy to come?

No, he is pretty tight with his folks.

Yeah? We can move them up here

same goes for yours.

My parents are dead.

I'm sorry man.

So how far is the campus?

We're not going to campus.

All I can say is

it's unfortunate.

We offered a lot of money.
