FROM THE BLACK WE HEAR--

THE SOCIAL NETWORK

 

Written by

 

Aaron Sorkin

 

May 28, 2009

 

 

 

Did you know there are more people with

genius IQ's living in China than there

are people of any kind living in the

United States?

 

That can't be true.

 

it is true.

 

What would account for that?

 

Well first of all, a lot of people live

in China. But here's my question:

 

 

 

MARK ZUCKERBERG is a sweet looking 19 year old whose lack of

any physically intimidating attributes masks a very

complicated and dangerous anger. He has trouble making eye

contact- and sometimes it's hard to tell if he's talking to you

or to himself.

 

ERICA, also 19, is Mark's date. She has a girl-next-door face

that makes her easy to fall for. At this point in the

conversation she already knows that she'd rather not be there

and her politeness is about to be tested.

 

The scene is stark and simple.

 

How do you distinguish yourself in a

population of people who all got 1600 on

their SAT's?

 

I didn't know they take SAT's in China.

 



I wasn't talking about China anymore, I

was talking about here.

 

You got 1600?

 

You can sing in an a Capella group.

 

 

Does that mean that you actually got

nothing wrong?

 

Or you row crew or you invent a 25 dollar

 

Or you get into a final club.

 

Or you get into a final club, exactly.

 

I like guys who row crew.

 

 

(BEAT)

Well I can't do that. And yes, it means I

got nothing wrong on the test.

 

Have you ever tried?

 

I'm trying now.

 

To row crew?

 

To get into a final club. To row crew?

No. Are you, like--whatever--crazy?

 

Sometimes, Mark-seriously-YOU say two

things at once and I'm not sure which one

we're talking about.

 

But you've seen guys who row crew, right?

 

No.

 

Okay, well.. they're bigger than me.

They're world class athletes. And a

second ago you said you like guys who row

crew so I assumed you'd met one.

 

I guess I meant I liked the idea of it.

The way a girl likes cowboys.

 

 

The Phoenix is good.

 

This is a new topic?

 

It's the same topic.

 

We're still talking about the finals

clubs?

 

Would you rather talk about something

else?

 

It's just that since the beginning of

the conversation about finals clubs I

think I may have had a birthday.

 

We can change the subject.

 

(can't get over it)

There are more people in China with genius

IQ's than the entire population of--

 

It's about exclusivity.

 

T'RICA

.....what is?

 

The final clubs. And that's how you

distinguish yourself. The Phoenix is the

most diverse. The Fly Club, Roosevelt

punched the Porc.

 

Which one?

 

The Porcellian, the Porc, it's the best

of the best.

 

I actually meant which Roosevelt.

 

Theodore.

 

 

Okay, well, which is the easiest one to

get into?

 

MARK takes a cigarette from a pack, lights it, takes a drag

and blows the smoke out before he says...

 

Hm.

 

What?

 

why would you ask me that?

 

I was just asking.

 

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.

 

He made $300,000 in a summer?

 

He likes meteorology.

 

You said it was oil futures.

 

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,

 

 

(BEAT)

I've lost my place again.

 

You asked me which one was the easiest to

get into because you think that's where I

have the best chance.

 

The one that's easiest to get into would

be the one where anybody had the best

chance.

 

 

I just think you asked--the placement of

where you asked the question--

 

I was honestly just asking. Okay? I was

asking just to ask. Mark, I'm not

speaking in code.

 

Erica--

 

You're obsessed with the finals clubs.

You have finals clubs OCD and you need to

see someone about this who'll prescribe

some sort of medication. You don't care

if side effects may include blindness,

okay, just do it.

 

Final clubs. Not finals clubs and there's

a difference between being obsessed and

being motivated.

 

Yes there is.

 

Well you do--that was cryptic--so you do

speak in code.

 

I didn't mean to be cryptic.

 

I'm saving I need to do something

substantial in order to get the attention

of the clubs.

 

Why?

 

Because they're exclusive.

 

(BEAT)

And fun and they lead to a better life.

 

You think Teddy Roosevelt got elected

president because he was a member of the

Phoenix Club?

 

He was a member of the Porcellian and yes

I do.

 

 

Maybe he sang in an a Capella group.

 

I want to be straight forward and tell

you that I think you should be a lot more

supportive. If I get in I'll be taking

you to the parties and you'll be meeting

people that you wouldn't normally get to

meet.

 

 

(SMILES)

You would do that for me?

 

You're my girlfriend.

 

okay, well I want to be straight forward

and tell you that I'm not anymore.

 

 

(BEAT)

What do you mean?

 

I'm not your girlfriend anymore,

 

Is this a joke?

 

No, I'm sorry, it's not.

 

You're breaking up with me?

 

You're going to introduce me to people I

wouldn't normally get to meet? What the

fuck is that supposed to mean?

 

Take it easy.

 

What was it supposed to mean?

 

It was--Erica, the reason we're able to

sit here and drink is that you used to

sleep with the door guy.

 

 

(PAUSE)

I want to really try not to lose it now.

 

(MORE)

 

 

ERICA (CONT'D)

The door guy's name is Bobby. I haven't

slept with the door guy, the door guy's a

friend of mine. He's a perfectly good

class of people and what part of Long

Island are you from--England?

 

I'm from Westchester.

 

I'm going back to my dorm.

 

Wait, wait, thisi reel?

 

Yes.

 

I apologize, okay? Siddown.

 

I'm going back to my dorm, I have to

study.

 

 

 

Yeah.

 

I'm sorry and I mean it..

 

I appreciate that but--

 

Come on.

 

---I have to study.

 

You don't have to study. Let's just talk.

 

I can't..

 

Why?

 

Because it's exhausting. Going out with

you is like dating a stairmaster.

 

 

All I meant is that you go to B.U. and so

you're not likely to--I wasn't making a

comment on your parents--I was saying you

go to B.U.

 

I have to go study.

 

You don't have to study.

 

How do you know I don't have to study?!

 

Because you go to B.U.!

ERICA stares at him...

 

MARK (CONT'D)

 

(BEAT)

Do you want to get some food?

 

I'm sorry you're not sufficiently

impressed with my education.

 

And I'm sorry T don't have a rowboat.

 

I think we should just be friends.

 

I don't need friends.

 

I was being polite, I had no intention

being friends with you.

 

You're really leaving.

ERICA takes MARK's hand and looks at him tenderly..

 

 

(CLOSE)

Listen, You're going to be successful and

rich. But you're going to go through life

thinking that girls don't like you

because you're a tech geek. And I want

you to know, from the bottom of my heart,

that that won't be true. It'll be because

you're an asshole.

 

And with that stinger, ERICA walks off and we stay on MARK as

the pulsing intro to Paul Young's "Love of the Common People"

 

CRASHES IN----

 

ERICA (CONT'D)

(calling over her shoulder)

And you're never getting into a final

club.

Along with the MUSIC, we slowly push in on MARK. A fuse has

just been lit.
