CHRISTY When did you get back? EDUARDO I got back this afternoon. CHRISTY And when were you going to call me? EDUARDO Chris, it was kind of a rough trip and I was tired and-- CHRISTY Or answer one of my 47 texts? Did you know I sent 47 texts? EDUARDO I did, and I thought that was incredibly normal behavior. CHRISTY Are you mocking me? EDUARDO I brought you a present. CHRISTY Why does your status say “single” on your Facebook page? EDUARDO (beat) What? 138.
CHRISTY Why does your relationship status say “single” on your Facebook page? EDUARDO I was single when I set up the page. CHRISTY And you just never bothered to change it? EDUARDO (beat) I-- CHRISTY What?! EDUARDO I don’t know how. CHRISTY Do I look stupid to you? EDUARDO No. Calm down. CHRISTY You’re asking me to believe that the CFO of Facebook doesn’t know how to change his relationship status on Facebook? EDUARDO It’s a little embarrassing so you should take it as a sign of trust that I would tell you that. CHRISTY Go to hell. EDUARDO (calming) Take it easy. CHRISTY No, you didn’t change it so you could screw Silicon Valley sluts every time you go out to see Mark. EDUARDO That is not even remotely true and I can promise you that the Silicon Valley sluts don’t care what anyone’s relationship status is on Facebook. Please, open your present. EDUARDO’s cell phone RINGS-- 139.
CHRISTY Oh, your phone does work. EDUARDO reaches for his cell but CHRISTY grabs it first to check the ID. CHRISTY (CONT’D) It’s Mark. CHRISTY tosses the still ringing phone back to him-- EDUARDO Okay, this is gonna be tricky. Here, open your present. It’s a silk scarf. CHRISTY Have you ever seen me wear a scarf? EDUARDO This’ll be your first. EDUARDO’s gotten the gift box out of his half un-packed suitcase, tossed it to CHRISTY and finally answered the phone. EDUARDO (CONT’D) (into phone) Yeah. INTERCUT WITH: INT. PALO ALTO HOUSE - SAME TIME MARK (into his cell phone) You froze our account? In the background there’s a small celebration going on with SEAN, DUSTIN, the INTERNS and of course some GIRLS. Champagne is being sprayed from shaken bottles and the girls are dancing to triumphant music. EDUARDO I did. MARK You froze the account. EDUARDO I had to get your attention, Mark. MARK Do you realize that you jeopardized the entire company? Do you realize that your actions could have permanently destroyed everything I’ve been working on? 140.
EDUARDO We’ve been working on. MARK Without money, the site can’t function. Let me tell you the difference between Facebook and everybody else: WE DON’T CRASH EVER! What EDUARDO can’t see behind his back is that CHRISTY has taken the gift box and lit it on fire with a cigarette lighter. MARK (CONT’D) If the servers are down for even a day, our entire reputation is irreversibly destroyed. Users are fickle. Friendster has proven that fact.
