Steve Jobs (2015)
Jeff Daniels: John Sculley
Steve Jobs : What if the computer was a beautiful object? Something you wanted to look at and have in your home. And what if instead of it being in the right hands, it was in everyone's hands?
John Sculley : We'd be talking about the most tectonic shift in the status quo since...
Steve Jobs : ...ever.
John Sculley : Why do people like you who were adopted feel like they were rejected instead of selected?
John Sculley : I can't put it more simply than this: We need to put our resources into updating the Apple II.
Steve Jobs : By taking resources from the Mac.
John Sculley : It's failing. That's a fact.
Steve Jobs : It's overpriced.
John Sculley : There is no evidence...
Steve Jobs : I'm the evidence! I'm the world's leading expert on the Mac, John! What's your resume?
John Sculley : You're issuing contradictory instructions, you're insubordinate, you make people miserable, our top engineers are fleeing to Sun, Dell, HP, Wall Street doesn't know who's driving the bus, we've lost hundreds of millions in value and I'm the CEO of Apple, Steve, that's my resume!
Steve Jobs : But before that, you sold carbonated sugar water right? I sat in a fucking garage with Wozniak and invented the future, because artists lead and hacks ask for a show of hands.
John Sculley : Alright, well... this guy's outta control. I'm perfectly willing to hand in my resignation tonight. But if you want me to stay, you can't have Steve. Settle him out. He can keep a share of stock so he gets our newsletter. I'd like the secretary to call for a vote.
Steve Jobs : I fucking dare you.
