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 CUNNINGHAM, a 26-year-old publicist for Apple, calls

from the back-

ANDREA:

We’re gonna open the house in five.

STEVE:

(calling back to ANDREA)

Don’t open the house.

(to the house)

We’re taking a quick break.

ANDY:

Part of the problem is-

STEVE:

--what?

ANDY:

We can recompile but if it’s a

hardware problem we can’t get into

the back.

JOANNA:

Why not?

ANDY:

(to STEVE)

You want to tell her or should I?

STEVE:

(to ANDY)

Don’t start with me, man.

JOANNA:

Why can’t he get into the machine?

ANDY:

(to JOANNA)

JOANNA:

ANDY:

He didn’t want users to be able to

open it, you need special tools.

JOANNA:

(to STEVE)

Is this for real?

STEVE:

There are a hundred engineers

walking around here, none of them

have the tools?

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:

It just did.

STEVE:

(calling out to the house)

Andy!

ANDY:

STEVE:

why would I (be calling out into--)
