Steve Jobs (2015) Poster


Kate Winslet: Joanna Hoffman



  • Joanna Hoffman : You don't think you're having a bizarre overreaction to a nineteen-year-old girl allowing her mother to list her own house?

    Steve Jobs : She could 'a tried...

    Joanna Hoffman : She's supposed to stop her mother - that particular mother - from living...

    Steve Jobs : She gave Chrisann her blessing to sell the house and she did it to spite me!

    Joanna Hoffman : I don't care if she put a pipe bomb in the water heater! You're going to fix it now!

    Steve Jobs : She's been acting weird for months. She's turned on me.

    Joanna Hoffman : [knocks papers onto the floor]  Fix it.

    Steve Jobs : What the...

    Joanna Hoffman : [knocks more papers onto the floor]  Fix it, Steve.

    Steve Jobs : Take it easy!

    Joanna Hoffman : [knocks even more papers onto the floor]  Fix it or I quit, how 'bout that? I quit and you never see me again, how 'bout that?

    Steve Jobs : [concerned]  Tell me what's wrong with you this morning.

    Joanna Hoffman : [has tears in her eyes]  What's been wrong with me for nineteen years. I have been a witness, and I tell you I've been complicit. I love you, Steve. You know how much. I love that you don't care how much money a person makes; you care what they make. But what you make isn't supposed to be the best part of you. When you're a father... that's what's supposed to be the best part of you, and it's caused me two decades of agony. Steve... that it is for you... the worst. It's a little thing... it's a very small thing. Fix it. Fix it now or you can contact me at my new job working anywhere I want.

  • Joanna Hoffman : I'm begging you to manage expectations.

    Steve Jobs : Have I ever let you down?

    Joanna Hoffman : Every single goddamn time.

    Steve Jobs : Then I'm due.

  • Steve Jobs : The exit signs have to be off or we're not gonna get a full blackout.

    Andrea Cunningham : We've spoken to the building manager and the fire marshal.

    Steve Jobs : And?

    Andrea Cunningham : They're absolutely no way they're letting us turn the exit signs off.

    Steve Jobs : I'll pay whatever the fine is.

    Andrea Cunningham : The fine is they're gonna come in and tell everyone to leave.

    Steve Jobs : You explained to the fire marshal that we're in here changing the world.

    Andrea Cunningham : Well...

    Steve Jobs : Did you?

    Andrea Cunningham : Yes, but unless we can also change the properties of fire, he doesn't care.

    Joanna Hoffman : Steve...

    Steve Jobs : If a fire causes a stampede to the unmarked exits, it will have been well worth it for those who survive. For those who don't, less so, but still pretty good.

    Andrea Cunningham : Listen...

    Steve Jobs : I need it to go black, real black. Get rid of the exit signs, and don't let me know how you did it.

  • Steve Jobs : What is your problem?

    Joanna Hoffman : I don't know, but I'm sure it can be traced directly back to you.

  • Steve Wozniak : This whole place was built by the Apple II... you were built by the Apple II!

    Steve Jobs : As a matter of fact I was destroyed by the Apple II and its open systems so that hackers and hobbyists could build ham radios or something! And then it nearly destroyed Apple when you spent all your money on it and developed a grand total of no new products.

    Steve Wozniak : The Newton...

    Steve Jobs : The little box of garbage. You guys came up with the Newton, it's like you want people to know that. This is a product launch not a luncheon, and the last thing I want to do is connect the iMac to the...

    Steve Wozniak : the only successful product that this company has ever made. I'm sorry to be blunt, but that happens to be the truth. The Lisa was a failure, the Macintosh was a failure. I don't like talking like this, but I am tired of being Ringo when I know I was John.

    Steve Jobs : Everybody loves Ringo.

    Steve Wozniak : And I am tired of being patronized by you!

    Steve Jobs : You think John became John by winning a raffle, Woz? You think he tricked somebody or hit George Harrison over the head? He was John because he was John.

    Steve Wozniak : He was John 'cause he wrote 'Ticket to Ride', and I wrote the Apple II.

    Andrea Cunningham : [to the people in the auditorium watching this]  Everybody, I want to...

    Steve Jobs : Nobody moves!

    Steve Jobs : [to Woz]  You made a beautiful board, which by the way you were willing to give out for free, so don't tell me how you built Apple. If it weren't for me, you'd be the easiest 'A' at Homestead High School.

    Steve Wozniak : [gesturing around the auditorium]  These people live or die by your praise, so here's your chance: acknowledge that something good happened that you weren't in the room for!

    Steve Jobs : [after a long pause]  No.

    Steve Wozniak : Steve... do it! It's right, it's... it's right.

    Steve Jobs : Sorry, but no.

    Steve Wozniak : 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've never had any respect for me... now why is that?

    Steve Jobs : I'd at least consider the possibility that it's because you've never had any for me.

    Joanna Hoffman : [suddenly walking into the auditorium]  What the hell is going on here?

    Steve Wozniak : [as he walks away]  Nothing. Thank you for your time.

  • Joanna Hoffman : Please, you have to tell me why it's so important for it to say "hello".

    Steve Jobs : Hollywood, they make computers scary things. See how this reminds you of a friendly face? That the disk slot is a goofy grin? It's warm and it's playful and it needs to say "hello"!

    Joanna Hoffman : The computer in 2001 said "hello" all the time and it still scared the shit out of me.

  • Joanna Hoffman : I love that you don't care how much money a person makes, you care what they make. But what you make isn't supposed to be the part of you

  • Steve Jobs : Hey, Steve Wozniak is sitting out there. Give yourselves a treat and ask if he happens to have the correct time.

    Joanna Hoffman : I have the correct time, and we're running out of it.
