Based on the book "The Accidental Billionaires."

Best Line:

Marylin Delpy: “You're not an asshole, Mark. You're just trying so hard to be.”

Marylin Delpy: You must really hate the Winklevosses.

Mark Zuckerberg: I don't hate anybody. The "Winklevii" aren't suing me for intellectual property theft. They're suing me because for the first time in their lives, things didn't go exactly the way they were supposed to for them.

Honorable Mention:

Mark: “People want to go online and check out their friends, so why not build a website that offers that? Eduardo, I'm not talking about a dating site, I'm talking about taking the entire social experience of college and putting it online.”

Erica: “You write your snide bullshit from a darkroom because that's what the angry do nowadays.”

Funniest Line:

Erica Albright: I think we should just be friends.

Mark Zuckerberg: I don't want friends.

Erica Albright: I was just being polite, I have no intention of being friends with you.”
