The Best Scene in: The Social Network

EDUARDO: In late November, I got the email from
Mark telling me to come out for the millionth member party. What else did the email say? It said that we had to have business meeting. That Mark and Sean had played some kind of revenge stunt on Case Equity and that Manningham was so impressed that he was now making an investment offer that was hard to turn down. So, I went to California and I went
straight to the new offices. I didn’t know whether to dress for the
party, or for the business meeting. So I
kind of dressed for both. But it didn’t matter. Why not? Because I wasn’t called out there for
either one. What were you called out there for? An ambush. Mr. Saverin, hey. Over here. At first I thought he was joking, giving
me more contracts to sign. But then I started reading. What is this? Well, ehh… as you know we had some n-new investors that– What is this? Mr. Saverin! Mark! MARK! SEAN: He’s wired in. Sorry? He’s wired in. Is he? Yes. How bout’ now, you still wired in? Call security. You issue 24 million new shares of stock. MARK: You were told that if new investors came along– How much of your shares were diluted? How much were his? What was Mr. Zuckerberg’s ownership share diluted down to? It wasn’t. What was Mr. Moskovitz’s ownership share diluted down to? It wasn’t. What was Sean Parker’s ownership share
diluted down to? It wasn’t. What was Peter Thiel’s ownership share
diluted down to? It wasn’t. What was your ownership share diluted
down to? Point-zero-three percent. (0.3%) You signed the papers. You set me up! You’re gonna blame me because you were the business head of the company and you made a bad business deal with your own company? It’s gonna be like I’m not part of
Facebook! It’s won’t be like you’re not part of
Facebook, you’re not part of Facebook. My name’s on the masthead! You might wanna check again. It’s because I froze the account? You think we were gonna let you parade
around in your ridiculous suits pretending you were running this company? SORRY! My Prada’s at the cleaners! Along with my hoodie and my fuck-you flip-flops, you pretentious douchebag! Security’s here. You’ll be leaving now. I’m not signing those papers. We will GET the signature. Tell me this isn’t about me getting into the Phoenix. Y-You did it, I knew it you did it! You planned that story about the chicken! I didn’t plan the story about the chicken. What’s he talking about? You had me accused of animal cruelty. Seriously, what the hell’s the chicken? And I’ll bet what you hated the most, is
that they identified me as a co-founder of
Facebook. Which I am. You better lawyer up,
asshole. ‘Cause I’m not coming back
for my 30 percent. I’m coming back… For EVERYTHING. Get him outta here. It’s okay, I’m going. Hang on. I almost forgot. Here’s your 19 thousand dollars. I wouldn’t cash it though, I drew it on the account you froze. I like standing next to you, Sean. Makes me look so tough.

  1. Every loud liberal who calls Rs. Nazis, showing their horns. Living like a Hitler. Each week, we see an SJW, blow up in own face. While Trump gains love.

  2. Watched this scene hundreds of times; it’s timeless. Perfectly directed, acted, shot, edited, written, paced… this whole film will be studied for years to come

  3. What you people tend to forget is Mark was only inspired to make a social network because the twins approached him with their idea. The twins only approached him because of face smash blowing up. Face smash blew up with the help of Eduardo's coding.
    If Eduardo brushed Mark off when Mark was playing with face smash and Mark got hung up and scraped the project Facebook wouldn't exist because the twins wouldn't of ever approached him.

    Little minds think of little theories if any at all.

  4. This scene LITERALLY defines the entire millennial generation as it exists today through the character of Mark Zuckerberg.

    Cold. Existentially Uncertain. Rebellious. Genius. Unhindered in the acquisition of Power and Meaning

    Sorry, but Mark forged his success and had to trample others to create his empire. The modern pioneers of technology need not exercise niceties when conquering the world.

  5. But noticed. He pretends like he's gonna swing on JT… security doesn't do shit lol great security bro

  6. Eduardo provided the code, the Winklevoss brothers provided the idea, and Sean provided the expansion. What did Zuckerberg do?

  7. This scene fucking KILLS me. Always did. But it ends well for our poor, poor Eduardo—he got, like, a billion plus at LEAST for all his troubles and heartache. He'll never be a major player like Suckerberg, but he's set forever. Like, FOREVER-EVER.

  8. Hey, wanna hear a hilarious fact? David Fincher didn't win best director at the Blahscars that year. The guy from King's Speech did. Remember King's Speech, you guys?

    . . . guys?? Hello???

  9. I created a facebook its my face which i attach to a book. I am the owner/ investment / share holder of it. Also i am the only one who use it 😀😀😀😀😀fuuuuuu mark 🍻🍻🍻🍻

  10. This scene would’ve been better if they just started sucking eachother off after all that fighting, just a big circle of them 69ing eachother

  11. The tone of the movie almost make it out like some of the main cast are now nobodies. Regular people that had a good idea, but aren't succesful now. Like the Napster dude. Owning 0.1% of Facebook still makes you a multi billionaire with more income than 100 people can spend in a lifetime.

  12. J.T killed it in this scene… I hated him in this scene like I hated him like I hated Sharon Stone in Casino. Great scene

  13. What's funny is that Zuckerberg is really a total piece of shit in real life. A real asshole. This movie isn't a documentary but Mark actually did all that is portrayed here. Mark is a cunt.

  14. Actually Eduardo was the only one who risked the whole capital money not having any clue what the company could be. Anyone could invested in equity after the growth model was visible, but he was the one built it from dust. Till this scene Mark Zuckerberg was no more than a nerd, but after this scene HE IS A REAL BITCH, MERELY PRETENDING HE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT MONEY, which means he is just calculative.

  15. It’s difficult to absolutley comprehend how all of this went down in real life am sure it’s very close to the letter in which case am glad Eduardo got his end of the deal, anyone associated with Facebook now is a billionaire so I guess things kinda all worked out eventually.

  16. Might be the best scene, but it's not the only good scene. I've seen this movie 3-4 times despite of not being a big fan of either Zuckerberg or Facebook. Same can be said about the Steve Jobs movies btw, recommended if you enjoyed this movie.
