Delightful Dialogue: The Social Network



Facebook Lawyer: Mr. Zuckerberg, do I have your full attention?

Mark Zuckerberg: No.

Facebook Lawyer: Do you think I deserve it?

Mark Zuckerberg: What?

Facebook Lawyer: Do you think I deserve your full attention?

Mark Zuckerberg: I had to swear an oath before we began this deposition, and I don't want to purjure myself, so I have a legal obligation to say no.

Facebook Lawyer: Okay - no. You don't think I deserve your attention.

Mark Zuckerberg: I think if your clients want to sit on my shoulders and call themselves tall, they have the right to give it a try - but there's no requirement that I enjoy sitting here listening to people lie. You have part of my attention - you have the minimum amount. The rest of my attention is back at the offices of Facebook, where my colleagues and I are doing things that no one in this room, including and especially your clients, are intellectually or creatively capable of doing... Did I adequately answer your condescending question?

~ Peter Holden and Jesse Eisenberg in The Social Network (2010)

This kind of makes Zuckerberg seem like a total douche. Oh wait, because he kind or probably is.
