- You coming too? Yes, I'm not gonna leave her in the hallway. Okay. It's a safe hallway, but anyway. You remember Joanna Hoffman? She's the head of marketing for the Mac. Good to see you.
- Nice to see you. Hello, Lisa. We've met before, and you told me you like the way I talk, and that was my favorite thing anyone's ever said to me. You're from Poland. Yes, I am. Do you know whe

- Actually, do you know what a coincidence is, Lisa?
- You made a new friend and her name was Lisa, too. That would be a coincidence. "Lisa" stands for "local integrated systems architecture." L-I-S-A. It's a coincidence.
- You about done? Yeah. Okay. JOANNA: Come. Let's make that computer say "Hi."
- Go ahead, Lisa. So it was the other way around. I was named after the computer? Nothing was named after anybody. It's a coincidence. Come on.
- I've got Andy here. (DOOR CLOSES)
- We're there? Hey, Chris. CHRISANN: Hey, Andy. How are you doin'? Terrible. STEVE: You guys caught up now? Excuse me for saying hello to my friend who thinks you're a dick. I don't think you'r

- STEVE: Hello, I'm Macintosh. Bring me the head of Andy Hertzfeld. I tried to get it to say, "Hello," but it's shy. Yeah. So that's it? STEVE; That's it.
- I don't get it. I know. What are people going to do with it? Lisa, how old are you now? You know how old she is. How old are you, Lisa? Five.
- Do you know what this is? It's a computer. Can I borrow your hand for a second?
- (C LEARS TH ROAT) Just wanted to say good luck. Thanks. You, too. It's a big morning. Yeah. You should see this crowd out there. This crowd, it's like, um...
- I can't really wait for you to come up with a metaphor, man. Yeah. So, uh, listen, I want to ask you a favor. Yeah? Can you acknowledge the Apple ll team in your remarks? Icannot Just an acknow
- That. What? STEVE: You asked me what people are gonna do with it. They're gonna do that. (KNOCK ON DOOR) One of the engineers. Thank you.
- I'm sorry? It's an abstract. (CHUCKLES) You used MacPaint.
- Push that key and the "S" at the same time.
- Now type your name. (KEYBOARD CLAC KING)
- Do you know which box says "Save"?
- Right. Go ahead and click on it.
- I'll put some money in your account. And buy you a new house, someplace near a decent school. Thank you. Woz wants a minute. And Sculley's asking for you. We're done?
- Could you teach me more things? On the computer? Lisa, wait for me in the hall, please.
- You can put your coat on in the hall. Bye, Lisa. Bye. CHRISANN: Lisa, in the hall. Now. Ijust wanna know, when you say you're gonna put money in my account, how much we're talking about. It
- I'm gonna give you whatever you need.
- Woz wants me to acknowledge the Apple ll team. You must be able to see that she looks like you. I don't want to insult Woz. Ijust think it's backward-looking at exactly the wrong moment. I kno
- God sent his only son on a suicide mission, but we like him anyway because he made trees.
- We're gonna sell a million units in the first 90 days, 20,000 a month after that. (SIGHS) So maybe you could give me a break, Ms. Hoffman?
- Computers aren't supposed to have human flaws. I'm not going to build this one with yours.
- Steve! H9)'- STEVE: Today is about the Macintosh. And the Mac is mine. I give you that. Thank you. I give you that. Just publicly acknowledge the Apple ll team becauseifs the right thing to
- The Mac is Jef Raskin's. Say it for me. Computers aren't... Fuck you. All right. (INDISTINCT CHATTER)
- STEVE: We're there? I need more time. You can't have it. Twenty minutes. It's 8:58. HERTZFELD: We can start late. Hear me. We're a computer company. We can't start late. Then I have another id
- We're not committing fraud. The 512 is gonna ship in under a year. Will you absolve me of your Eastern European disapproval?
- The computer in 2001 said "Hello" all the time, and it still scared the shit out of me. Absolve me.
- Just for this. And just for now. AN NOU NCER: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome founding board member, Mike Markkula.
- All right. Okay. Go make a dent in the universe, Steven. See you in a couple of hours. MARKKU LA: And I'm going to take us through the formal part of the meeting. The legal part, if you will.
- You're the only one who sees the world the same way I do. No one sees the world the same way you do.
- I'm like Julius Caesar, John. I'm surrounded by enemies. No, you're not. The board... Oh, "The board." The board's behind you. Only because you see to it they are. Oh, lthink it's a good boar
- We got 45 seconds. I want to use it to ask you a question.
- Why do people who are adopted feel like they were rejected instead of selected? That came out of nowhere. "Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command. "Your old road is rapidly aging
- I don't feel rejected. You're sure? Very sure. Because it's not like the baby is born and the parents look and say, "Nah, we're not interested in this one." On the other hand, someone did choo
- You find out you were out of the loop when the most crucial events in your life were set in motion.
- I don't understand people who give it up.
- What inspired Hertzfeld to make that bet? He was warning me that being your father figure could be dangerous. Keep your 100 bucks. I'm sticking with the first verse. Good. What the hell does
- MARKKU LA: It's my pleasure to introduce my friend and the CEO ofApple, John Sculley. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDS) (WHISPERS) John? Yeah?
- Lisa made a painting on the Mac.
- So, I think it's cool they're here. They're suing me. (ELEVATOR BELL DINGS) Still. It was nice they came.
- They're not being magnanimous. They want it to look like an amicable divorce. History doesn't remember Joe DiMaggio kindly for dumping Marilyn. MAN: Steve. (JOANNA GROANS) What's your problem?
- One more thing. Sure. No questions from the press after. No? Why? Until I have better answers, no press avail. If somebody asks where I am, you just saw me, and I'll be right back.
- Who do you want first? Bring me the face of Steve Wozniak.
- (EXHALES DEEPLY) Hang on. (BLUES ROCK lvluslc PLAYING ON RADIO) I thought you went to school. Hang on. You were supposed to go to school an hour ago. lthoughtyoulefi. I didn't wake up my mom
- The top, bottom, right, and left are about a millimeter shorter than the front and back. They're not, I measured them. Lisa, I'm kind of an expert in design. And that's a 20-cent ruler. You th
- Is there something you need?
- Why isn't it a perfect cube? You've asked me before. I forget what it is.
- It's an optical anomaly. To the human eye, a perfect cube doesn't look like a cube, so we made it roughly a millimeter shorter than a foot on two sides. What's an anomaly? You've asked me that
- It's an exception. Something that doesn't fit a pattern. (KNOCK ON DOOR) You have to go to school. Come in! (DOOR OPENS) I think you two have met. Hello, old friend. You look well. So do you
- You're very polite. Woz? Yeah. STEVE: Chrisann's at a payphone. Would you find her? JOANNA: Yeah. (DOOR OPENS) STEVE: Good turnout. WOZNIAK: Great turnout. Yeah. "Insanely great." (CHUCKLES
- I appreciate your inviting me to the launch. Ijust want to wipe the slate clean. That's exactly what I want. That's why I came backstage. I want you to know I'll be out there with you. Any cha
- Markkula, Sculley. They ask you to slag me off in the press? I had reason to be angry. Did they? Absolutely not. But they asked you to talk. Apple was under siege, you'd just left the company
- L begg€d YOU- l begg€d YOU- The Apple ll accounted for 70% of the revenue. What did you think was gonna happen? You didn't care enough about the Apple ll or the Lisa. Let's be really clear. I
- I wasn't pressured to do it. What I said to the press was an honest, iftempered, reflection of what lbeheved. Woz. Yeah? What the fuck is on your wrist?
- You wanna know? I literally can't wait. Everyone's gonna be wearing these in 10 years. It's a Nixie Watch, made using Nixie tubes. This is actually 40-year-old technology. Cold-cathode tubes.
- just hit the button. Excuse me, flight attendant, the man next to me would appear to be detonating a bomb. You think this looks like a bomb. Even right now, I'm not 100% sure it isn't. (BUZZI
- You were saying things about the Apple ll, and the way you were treating the team... Woz. You get a free pass for life. I got to get back onstage. We got, like, two minutes of rehearsal time
- Why has Lisa not heard of me? Shit, man, how many fourth-graders have heard of you? You can't write code. You're not an engineer. You're not a designer. You can't put a hammer to a nail. I bu
- So, how come 10 times in a day I read "Steve Jobs is a genius"?
- Tell me something else I don't know.
- Back onstage? We're out of time. They've got to mop the stage and open the house. If it crashes, it crashes, right?
- You'll make a joke. I'll make ajoke. If it crashes, it crashes. It's a good slogan. "NeXT. If it crashes, it crashes." I'm notjust talking about the demo, Steve. If it tanks, we don't swallow
- Start 15 minutes late so Avie can recompile and give us a fighting chance. Jesus Christ! How many times are we gonna have this... We're not starting late ever! Fine! We're not ever starting la
- Lisa's been doing this thing where she asks me about stuff I've already told her. She asks me questions, and I know she already knows the answers. What's that about? JOANNA: Kids do that when
- There'll be more money in your account by the end of business.
- Were you being nice? Oh, yeah.
- (sossnue) JOANNA: Andy's next. Hertzfeld or Cunningham? Hertzfeld. He's playing with Avie Tevanian on the computer backstage. (INDISTINCT CHATTER) WOMAN: Ladies and gentlemen, the house is now
- I can't think of anything I have to do right now. It'll make you feelgood. HERTZFELD: Joanna! Look at this! Oh, Andy, he's only got a couple of minutes. It's Guy Kawasaki writing in Macworld.
- You can read it later. Thanks. She would've gotten in without you donating a building. Still, it's something to talk about in the interview.
- (SIGHS) All right. Good luck. Thanks.
- Give that to me. I'll throw it out for you. I'm gonna hang on to it.
- What? What? You ready for Sculley?
- It's dangerous up here. That's why I make other people do it.
- Who are you hiding from, me or your mom? I'm not hiding. Let's go.
- What were you listening to? I'm listening to two versions of the same song. And then, when I get to the end, I rewind to listen to them again. It's the same song, but the versions are differe
- You have to go to school now. Do you want me to tell you the differences between the two versions? Right now. The first version is the kind of thing that you would call girlish. I didn't mean I
- STEVE: Let's go! Can I make my case for staying? Nope. (CROWD CONTINUES CHEERING)
- She was with me. Come on. Your dad doesn't want us to stay. That's not true. That's not... You have to be in school, is all. I'm committing a crime right now, and I don't wanna get in troubl
- I can't really think of the word. Okay. Well, have a good day at school. "Regretful." What? Like, wishing you could go back and do things different. You're too young to be regretful. Not me.
- (DOOR CLOSES) Six minutes. You want to see Sculley? No.
- SCULLEY: You know all those times I told you, you needed security? Here's why.
- STEVE: I don't know how it is I've gotten older and you haven't. Some deal with the devil I was never offered. So, you know what I've been thinking for the last four years?
- As it turns out, John, I've never known what you were thinking. No newborn baby has control. Do you know what I'm talking about? In '84, before the Mac launch. You said... Yeah. You said that
- SCULLEYI IS it? Hmm? Don't play stupid. You can't pull it off.
- You came here to ask me why people think you fired me? Why do people think I fired you?
- (SIGHS) Can I mention something to you? Sure. I have no earthly idea why you're here.
- The story of why and how you left Apple, which is quickly becoming mythologized, isn't true. I'm gonna take this to the board myself. Don't do that. lam doing that. You can't. VVhy? They bel
- Death threats. I get death threats! My kids are getting taunted. Why do people think I fired you? Joanna's gonna call my name in a second. JOANNA: Steve? That was unrehearsed. STEVE: Yeah, I'

- Now, I bled that night. And I don't bleed. But time's done its thing. And I really haven't thought about it in a while.
- I absolutely understand why you're upset. And I want people to know the truth, too. JOANNA: It's time.
- Got it. You're gonna end me, aren't you? STEVE: You're being ridiculous. I'm gonna sit center court and watch you do it yourself. Then I'm gonna order a nice meal with a '55 Margaux, and sign
- That's what men do. We can't start late.
- I don't think there was any way to detect a chip on my shoulder. Did you know, back at Bandley the Mac team gave an award every year to the person who could stand up to you? JOANNA: I won. Th

- I'm your closest confidante, your best friend. Your thing... What do you call it? Your "work wife." The whole time! The last three years...
- When did you change your mind and start building the Steve Jobs Revenge Machine?
- (EXHALES DEEPLY) STAGE MANAGER: House to half.
- It was an unmanned satellite NASA sent up in the early '70s on a data-gathering mission. The thing is, when they sent it up, they didn't know yet how they were going to get it back. But they fe
- ButApple will. Because Avie Tevanian is going to build them exactly the OS they need. They're going to have to buy me, too. For half a billion dollars in stock, and end-to-end control on every

- It's a word. It means "sleepwalking." STAGE MANAGER: Steve? I'm sorry, we have to clear the house ifwe're going to start on time. We're absolutely starting on time. We're going to start on time.
- Andy, come on back a minute. Which one? STEVE: Hertzfeld. (INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS)
- STEVE: Forbes calls it an industry-altering success. Look here.
- Why haven't we ever slept together? We're not in love. Look.
- STEVE: Sculley. JOANNA: Look what he said. "He has implemented the same simple strategy "that made Apple so successful 15 years ago. "Make hit products and promote them with terrific marketing.
- Do you talkto him? You haven't talked to him since '88? I'd have told you if I did. Doesn't matter. I don't want people thinking they can cross me and then, boom, 15 years later, I'm cool wit
- "The only thing Apple's providing now is leadership in colors." Don't worry about it. What does Bill Gates have against me? I don't know. You're both out of your minds. Listen to me. He droppe

- You brought the company back from life support after going through the misery of laying off 3,000 people and cutting 70% of the product line. So, Steven, it's over.
- Tell me what's wrong with you this morning. What's been wrong with me for 19 years. (BREATHING SHAKILY) I've been a witness, and I tell you I've been complicit. I love you, Steve. You know how
- (SIGHS) It's a little thing. It's a very small thing.
- (SNIFFLES) Fix it. Fix it now, or you can contact me at my newjob, working anywhere I want.
- my grandmother always used to say to me... I don't give a shit, Yentl.
- I'll have someone get Lisa. Thank you. And ifyou see Hertzfeld... (KNOCK ON DOOR) HERTZFELD: It's Andy! Speak of the devil's chief engineer. Go. Come on in.
- You look great today. Thank you. Doesn't she? She looks fantastic. Always does. Get out.
- Well, I think I know why I'm here. Do you? Steve... Did you send the check yet? Yes. So Harvard got a tuition check from Andy Hertzfeld to pay for Lisa? I don't think they look that carefull
- You don't get to deputize yourself as her interim. You don't get to override my decisions. Do you understand? You don't get to act like you're her father. Somebody had to. What the fuck did you
- That really wasn't my business. (CHUCKLES) I'm fascinated by what you think is and isn't your business. Lisa's been going to a therapist, and she likes it.
- And would love for you and Chrisann to go with her. And the reason you know that is because you're the one that recommended the therapist. Well, I know a guy. No, I mean you're the one who rec
- You know what? It was a while ago, and I don't remember how the whole... You told Chrisann that Lisa should see a therapist. Steve, you're stigmatizing. It's a perfectly norm... (SIGHS) It's n
- Chrisann is my friend. What was the reason you gave?
- You mean... What was the reason you gave Chrisann why Lisa should see a therapist? I don't remember. We were talking and I said... It's pretty much what I just said, that it certainly couldn't
- You didn't say that Lisa needed a strong male role model?
- I think it's a miracle she's not robbing banks with the Symbionese Liberation Army.
- There is no reason in the world why she should be nice. But she is.
- So I helped. Because somebody had to.
- I'll wire the money to you this afternoon.
- You threatened me a long time ago. Sorry?
- A long time ago, you threatened rne once. People are attracted to people with talent. People without it find that threatening. (SNAPS FINGERS) Maybe you should see a therapist. Certainly could
- I don't want people to dislike me. I'm indifferent to whether they dislike me.
- Since it doesn't matter, I always have.
- I've always liked you a lot. That's too bad.
- What is remarkable, what's hard to fathom but true is that for a given clock rate, a PowerPC chip is twice as fast as a Pentium ll chip.
- In other words, a 266 megahertz G3 chip is twice as fast as a 266 megahertz Pentium ll.
- a 266 G3 is equal to about 500 megahertz.
- Take a look at BYTE magazine's BYTE Marks, the gold standard for any... (KNOCK ON DOOR)

- Can you go get her for me, please? I just talked to Andy Hertzfeld. I'm just trying to scrub this out of my brain with Drano. But I do want to talk to Lisa. Okay, just stay cool. Okay.
- How are you feeling? I'm feeling good, Joel. How about you? I don't think I could be in your business. It changes too quickly. Well, I'd hang on, 'cause yours is about to start changing pretty

- Excuse me, okay? Yep. One second.

- You made a beautiful board which, by the way, you were willing to give out for free, so don't tell me how you builtApple. If it weren't for me, you'd be the easiest "A" at Homestead High School
- No. WOZNIAK: Steve! Do it. It's right. It's...
- It's right. Sorry, but no. Then let me put it another way. I don't think there's a man who's done more to advance the democratization that comes with personal computing than I have, but you'
- It's done. She's coming back. You came a half-inch from putting this company out of business. Now, who do I see about that?
- I'm letting you keep yourjob. You get a pass.
- You know, when people used to ask me what the difference was between me and Steve Jobs, I would say Steve was the big-picture guy and I liked a solid workbench. When people ask me what the di
- Your products are better than you are, brother. That's the idea, "brother." And knowing that, that's the difference. It's not binary. You can be decent and gifted at the same time.
- JOANNA: He didn't mean it. Yeah, he did.
- He's a temperamental guy. No, he's not.
- It's like, five minutes before every launch, everyone goes to a bar, gets drunk, and tells me what they really think. (CHUCKLES) She's coming to your dressing room.
- JOANNA: I told you to make things all rightwith Lisa. I didn't say you had to settle every blood feud you have. STEVE: The last time blood feuds weren't settled, I lost the cover of Time. Though
- Time would have had to have commissioned it months in advance. You were never in the conversation for Man of the Year. Nobody lost you anything.
- So, what else are you sure about? I don't know how I could've missed that. Reality distortion. No, seriously. Seriously. Don't try to win an argumentwith Lisa. Just say you were wrong. (KNOC
- (INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS) You're a good man, John.
- So, I brought you a present. The Newton. Ifyou don't take it out of the box, you'll be able to sell it. Which is more than I can say. Everything all right there? What? No. (CLEARS THROAT) Yeah
- Look, Wall Street's gonna sit back and wait to see how you do as CEO, so don't let any fluctuation bother you for the first 12 months. Day traders are gonna respond.
- Is this your way of telling me I shouldn't have killed the Newton? The most efficient animal on the planet is the condor. The most inefficient animals on the planet are humans. (CHUCKLES) Well,
- But a human with a bicycle becomes the most efficient animal. And the right computer... A friendly, easy computer that isn't an eyesore, but rather sits on your desk with the beauty of a tensor
- Do you like it? I was given back. And what if, instead of it being in the right hands, it was in everyone's hands? Everyone in the world. SCULLEY: We'd be talking about the most tectonic shift
- Then my parents adopted me. My biological mother had stipulated that whoever took me had to be college-educated, wealthy, and Catholic. Paul and Clara Jobs were none of those things, so my bio
