Voila! Finally, the AntiTrust
script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Ryan Phillipe movie. This script is a transcript that was painstakingly
transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of AntiTrust. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally
tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to
drop me a line. You won't
hurt my feelings. Honest.
is living organism
Multiplying constantly surrounded by predators
There's no rule for idle time or second guessing,
New discovery was made hourly.
New ideas are ready to be devored and redefined.
This business is binary
you are a one or a zero,
alive or dead
There is no second place.
It has been suggersted by the media and congress..
that you're violating antitrust laws, and treathening competition
Mr. Winston, Can you reasonably deny that you have a monopoly in this area ?
Well, the only monopoly...
we have at N.U.R.V, is monopoly on excellence.
It is still a free market.
But a free market encourages competition You prevent it
You don't need to remind you the essence of competition is always been quite simple,
Any kid working in a garage anywhere in the world with a good idea can put us out of business
Let's try a communication scheme if you have a good driver..
Teddy, I think I have found our bottle neck
You did it ! Yee-Haw!!
God! That feels good
Three months from today, N.U.R.V will launch Synapes
transforming the way humans communicate,
the entire world will be able to send or receive
any message in audio, video and text or any medium
any medium, any medium, ...
SYNAPSE will fullly unite the global village.
You set yourself real ticking clock here, Gary
All of your competitor are desperate to get to the market place with this technology before you.
It has even been suggested that you won't hit this very ambitious launch date
We're going to hit that date, you can bet on it
How can you be sure?
We'll do whatever it takes to get there
Pace yourself, Brian
It can go here
Milo, what do you think of this?
I know I promise my mom we're gonna make this garage famous
but I really don't think we're gonna be here that long
'Cause Iíve got us 3 appointment with the venture capitalists
Oh, that is fantastic
I can stop taking calls from those corporate recruitment, losers
I'll do the talking, Brian
Guys, what are these?
Don't you know the worse you look, the smarter they think you are
They are going to think you're a genious, Brian
I just have Milo and Ted, and the wallets flew open,
They were dying to give me their money.
You guys are the greatest duo, since Hewlet and Packer
Lenon and McCartney
Ben and Jerry
Ha Ha Ha
I'm Lennon Okay Teddy
Does that make me Yoko?
Look Alice, You got to make him do the start up with Teddy and me
Larry, if he wants to go and take a few interviews check out his options as his friend
I think you should support him in that
What to know the best way to manipulate somebody
As graduating students of the Standford University, Science department,
you have a magnificent foundation in theory
what you need is a creating innovative...
A monopolist Exactly
the guy knows how to get peoples attention
Shut up, shut up, shut up
trying to listen !
who will fill your questions?
Thanks for taking the time to check us out
I look forward to seeing some of you up here at the NURV campus, in the near future
I got a question for him, Alright?
Why not make SYNAPSE open source?
Don't you have enough money?
Here is an interesting question
What kind of beverage do you offer your programmer?
Oh come on
He is avoiding the issues, man??
He should run for president or something
I'm just going to throw these at you, you know, like the do at the zoo
It's for you
Hello Milo, this is Gary Winston,
I've heard great things about your work,
I'm hoping you and your friend Teddy can come up here.
Hey, Larry, you still have got my Union Jack CD
No, I gave it back..
Ok, I don't know who this is but your timing really blows
'cause I just saw him in a live chat
Right, well, a pair of airline tickets are on there way to you,
I would love to show you some of the things we are doing here
Who was it ?
Ha, that would be funny
I just spoke to Garry Winston?
I can't believe you are not going to take that ticket
Give it to me!
You don't want to work there, Brian
They squeeze everybody out of business, they get bigger and fatter
That's why I want to work there
You sure he didn't ask for my number?
Milo, we can't go up there
They don't even know the meaning of open source
You know this, we have talked about this
They just want to own everything
They clone stuff, they reverse engineering it
I, I know. / Everybody is stuck with their inferior proprietary version
They are being investigated by the justice department for christ sake
Tell him, Harry
I think that he should go up there and check it out if he is curious
Sure, I mean it's your life
I need another beer
So, you couldn't convince your friend Teddy to come home
No, he is pretty tight with his folks
You know we can move them up here same goes for yours
My parents are dead
I'm sorry man
So how far is the campus?
We're not going to campus.
All I can say is that is unfortunate,
we offered a lot of money. A substantial a mount of money, Gary
Can we buy into their stock? Or is that a justice department problem too?
There is no stock, Randy l mean there's no company
Garry Winston's office May I help you?
Thanks for holding Yes, he is in a conference right now. Can I take a message?
The cold, hard facts are that anything is possible.
Anything, anything you're just not thinking creatively.
- This is difficult one but we're going to prevail - Alright, alright
Garry Winston's office
Let me check that for you
I'm sorry, I don't see anything here
Hi.. It is not everyday we have genious in the house
- Want a soda pop or something? - No, thanks
Come on in
The house knows the paintings I like, knows my favorite music,
some for anybody else that's in the system
There's a little sensor that defects who's in the room
Doesn't Bill Gates have something like that?
Bill who? ha, ha. ah, no, no. his is primitive.
So I understand you are thinking of doing a start up
My friends and I have been planning on doing a media delivery system for a long time
It would be open source, we offer it free to everybody, just charge for tech support.
It's a cut-throat business we're in Milo
It's just a matter of time before someone borrows your technology,improves it and makes a billion dollars on it.
What would you do with a billion dollars Milo?
Mmm I don't know
I'll tell you what you could do
You could take that money and put it back into technology, education and the arts
You can transform culture
I found the opera company, symphony orchestras, museums, theatres, steels..
I have donated thousands of computers to schools through out the country
The question really is,
How many of the people you share discoveries with will be outulistic?
and how many will make fortunes of your generosity?
Come on in here
Check this out.
- This is the SYNAPSE satellite. - You bet.
I have 240 of these up there
12 different obital patterns, 20 satellites,
mother satellite of each ring
passes over us every night at 10 o'clock
to allow for station keeping, re-programming, etc.
They in turn pass the data along to the sister satellites in their realm
That's the coolest I ever seen.
I'm total wrapped up in this
It's like Iíve got my mission control right here on my PC
Activation codes, IP address, flight pass..
- It's the best train set ever, hum? - You bet
We've loaded a back door to receive SYNAPSE transmissions
and all of our OS software for the past 6 years,
We've developed compression schemes and file formats that achieve conductivity, but..
We have a problem
You know what that problem is?
Ah, your adaptors can't overcome the band width limitation of wireless hand helds
Data takes too long to download so your image get so..
Image, ah, goes fuzzy
- Fussy, yeah, - Ha ha
Can you get this done in time to meet your date?
With you, I can
So I understand your friend Teddy is kind of attached to his parents.
It's very commendable
Ah, the truth is he's ah..
Milo, I know, he thinks
we're cloned too many programs
an forced people to buy our inferior versions and blah, blah, blah..
add infinite item and nauseousm
I've heard it all before.
I even understand it,
it's the nature of competitive business.
When you're on top
people attack the quality of your product.
It comes with the territory
It's when the attacks personal that Gary Winston is satan web sites,
digitizing my wife's face on pornstar bodies
I don't like that
You're one of maybe twenty programmers in the world
with the mastery it going to take to finish this thing
We would love for you to join us
The future holds limitless possibilities, Milo
You decide what the future holds for you.
Let me know
You know I look at you and see something I haven't seen in 20 years
- What? - I see me!
- Alice - Umm,
So When is Brian coming for the T.V?
I don't know
I'm going to leave you two alone, O.K?
Why are you doing this?
Teddy, come on
He can't hit his date without you, can he?
Remember that lecture Ginnings gave? about open source
He said human knowledge belongs to the world
Like Shakespeare or Asprin
Teddy, I know you are disappointed,
I just feel like this is the right thing to do for now,
They were interested in you too, Gary even mentioned you
Yeah, well.. I'm not interested in them
I get what's important to you
This is important to me.
And I know your are going to get your venture capital
We did, We had to settle for 850,
because we lost you
So, it will be enough.
It'll be enough because they got you
We're both going to do something great
I just thought we were going to do it together
Milo, this is Mr. Barton from the...
Department of Justice
- Sorry about the glass - No problem
How are you, Milo. I am here as a friend
I understand you signed up with Garry Winston
You know Milo, we're at a great disadvantage with NURV
I mean our experts are not as smart as theirs
The truth is we could do with a real smart guy on our team to help pick our fights
Ha, Iím going to take a real shot in the dark here, O.K?
I can offer you $42,000 a year and a Buick
if you will change your mind and join us.
I'm hoping you have a feeling that is the right thing to do
Well, Iím sure what you're doing is important, Mr. Barton
I just fell like this is a... kind of my time to make my mark
Well, like I said, it is a shot in the dark
No, no, no, please, please, keep it.
If you see something up there that rubs you the wrong way
Do the right thing
What are they building?
Oh, That's a... Building number 21
it's way behind schedule. It's still off limits.
It's a digital broadcast base.
Taking forever to get the fiber optics linked in there
This is the day care center
Gary has put a lot of money in there.
And the people with kids are not hot shot geeks or anything. They just payroll clerk or whatever
That's cool I know, that's really cool
The card encoded.
It tells who came through the door and when
If you see a tailgater that someone coming on your swipe, report him
If you see someone wandering around without ID, it is your duty to challenge him
I don't give a shit if you are a stock option billionaire
If you don't challenge, l'll have your butt
He seemed a little tense
Oh, shront, yeah, yeah
He gets his chain pulled a lot by the geeks around here
because he is non-tech Because he is a ex-cop or whatever
Whoa..a, Lisa actually looked at you
- When ? - She has a heavy graphics background
She's programming scalable user interfaces for the SYNAPSE modules
She's a smart girl
Every geek has a thing for Lisa, but
she won't let anyone get near her
I have a girl friend
you got like, you got like a girl friend A 3 deminisional girl friend
That's really rare around here
So, welcome to the egg
Ah.., everyone listen up

Come on let me introduce you to the rest of the team
Hey, Stinky Oh, Hi, Gary,
how's it going?
Hi Gary, how's it going
Dessy and Stinky are working on compression
Josh and Vancat are writing protocall handlers
This is Milo
- Milo is working on the all important adaptor - Alright, Milo
When I announce the launch date for SYNAPSE
it wasn't arbitrary,
but it wasn't based on our progress either, as you know
If we do not have a workable version of SYNAPSE by then, it's over folks
And this is the glip of little headline you will be seeing through out the world
- Not going to happen, is it? - No
- Is it? - No
Not going.. to happen
There are no constraints, no boundaries
challenge me, .
You have a choice.
You can be forgotten, or you can be remembered
as one of the noble few who made it
Now's the time, to go way beyond your potential
Now's the time to dig down deep folks.
Now' the time to show why you are the elite
The chosen few.
The rare lights that give this company
Now's the time to shine
Corporate condo's are almost as romantic as they sound
She brought me here.
Well, I think it's.
What do you think?
Did I tell you he has never been anyone's counselor before?
I'm sorry, the house is great
It's great and so are you / Yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah
- Really? - Really.
- Come on, I love you - You do?
Show me the bedroom
most of us who write software achieve our greatest work before 8:30
As I grow older I know how important..
Are you going to keep working?
Oh, hi, Gary
In the middle of something?
- No. - Check this out.
Who did this? A Josh or a vangetta or what..
Somebody, yeah. Think you can use it?
- Yeah, - the compression is awesome Well good
Struction is perfect
Oh, god, oh
So much fun, love doing this
the governor of Missouri has called upon the president to declare a state of emergency.
In local news,
a tragic car accident took the life of fortlands area computer software entrepreneur, William Sud..
Sud was found to have both protact and alchol in his car
- Milo - Hi
You're pretty famous around here / Yeah,
but getting a bit of a teachers pet rep.
I wouldn't worry about it
I mean you have to figure that most people around here were their teachers pets
- Were you? - We moved around a lot
- Barely knew my teachers - Me too, I..
- What were you?.. An army brat or something? - Yes, something like that
What do you got there?
I wanted to show you the interface systems... for SYNAPSE
I'm Lisa by the way Yeah, I know
Hi, you have reached the office of Skullbox
Teddy and Larry are out right now,
Let a message and we will call you back when you are out and leave you one
Hey Teddy, it's Milo
Uh, Just calling because it has been a while and
uh, guess Iím kinda hoping you're not still pissed at me
- Hi - Hi

Oh yeah, yeah, me too, me too, yeah
Still, work is not the only thing to talk about is it?
Oh, of course not
So, what's you been up too?
It's good to hear from you
Even though you are the enemy now
Can you hold please, thank you
Thank you so much for holding,
How may I help you? Let me just check that for you
The Department of Justice says that if we acquire netmail they will view it as anti-competitive
Well, why didn't you tell me this before we decided forego R&D..
Well, at the time, they indicated that it wouldn't be a problem
They have a bureaucratic mind set Gary they..
I count on you to solve problems, whatever it takes
show me some creativity
Gary, we're talking about the law
It's not like making software,
There are limits
Stop thinking like a lawyer for a second
and show me some kind of creativity
He'll have to get back to you
Gary Winston's office
You can go on in, Milo
Gary Winstons office. Yes, he is in a conference right now,
May I take a message?
- You wanted to see me? - Yeah,
Take a look
This is amazing. Who's doing all this?
What does that mean?
- What does that mean, huh? - Nothing, I, I...
that wasn't meant for you
Justice Department is driving me nuts
They make everything strategic I do, look sorted
Every good chess player knows his opponents moves before he makes them
Everyone in business trys to get ahead
I get there first, Iím a bad guy
What are we doing here?
Are we making chemical weapons?
Are we strip mining? No!
Why are they after me?
The software business is binary
you're a one or a zero, alive or dead
- It scares, don't you think? - Definitely
Here, lt's your copy
I don't want to speak too soon,
but I think I cracked it, Larry
I really think I cracked it
Are you going to tell me what's bothering you are not?
- Ok - Ok.
Gary gave me a new compression scheme today
I said " Who's doing all this ",
cause I was impressed l wanted to know where.
I was coming from Right ? / Um-hum
He just lost it, like... he, he shouted at me,
he had like this look in his eyes, like..
How horrible! Yeah
Well, Where did it come from? I don't know
That's what Iíve been asking myself
I asked around. Nodbody knows anything about it, Uh.
You know, So does he have some genious stored away somewhere?
And if does, Why not let him write SYNAPSE?
- I not saying if makes any sense... - Hey! Honey
Sesame Seeds. Jesus.
Excuse me... Could you take that away, thank you
- So stupid - Hey!
He is a genious. Don't forget Yeah
If anybody other than you could write this thing as quickly as your're saying
Wouldn't be maybe be him? Yes, yes, you are right,
The guy a genious, SYNAPSE is all he caves about
and Iím being over sensitive for a change
You know what?
Sometimes it helps to get out of here. Just for an hour or so.
Just dropped off my resume, Nearly got in the door.
You're living up here now?
I'm system administrator at the load public access station,
Where any whack Job with 100 bucks gets his own show.
God does it suck.
Can you help me?
Put it the word I'll see what I can do.Yeah
- Well, Iím parked illegally - Ok.
They pushed up all the schedules on the SYNAPSE's applications
How fast you go?
There is no second place.
Plus everytime. I get jammed up. Gary comes up with something.
Did uh... Gary give you a new design or something? / Yeah
I must have offended him, 'cause he's a...
He yelled at me.
People don't ever just, like, hand you stuff
Mabye once. I reconfigured it anyways.
precious moments that you want to hold
that you want to share,
at home, at school, at work.
You'll keep on touch with the one's you love through SYNAPSE
Share live voices, music, pictures or video, data or text,
whit anyone, anywhere, instantly...
SYNAPSE links every communications devices on the planet.
Because every moment's matters.
- Hehehe. I think I have a problem. - I think you do
- Hi, honey - Hi
I didn't expect..ah..
Uh.. Lisa this is my... this is Alice..
Lisa is doing the users interface for SYNAPSE. / Oh
Milo tells me you are a really great artist
Oh. yeah..? well. He's always exaggerates.
Well um, I got a lot to do... It was nice to meet you.
How are you? I'm so surprised
- Are you Ok? Is everything alright? - Yeah yeah.
No. I've al whatís wanted to come out, and you know. ..see what this place is like.
- It's really good to see you. - Yeah.
What did the girl say?
There maybe a little less trust after you snapped at him
- It hasn't effected his work though. - Nothing does.
It's pretty amazing.
Teddy's been killed.
They've done this before.
Just never killed anybody until now.
It's their writing on the wall, MO
They hate literature was scattered everywhere
It's like they were asking to be caught.
And they've been arrested twice for beating up asians.
How they weren't in jail?
People told us to be careful in this neighbourhood.
I guess he didn't take them too seriously.
Yeah. well. that's our problem.
We don't take anything seriously. do we?
It's not on the hard drive.
Hey, I didn't know you guys were working with fiber optics.
We're just a bounch of crazy assholes.
And he was on the verge of something. He was right there.
He was going to show us the next day.
He told me I should get the VC to line up appointment with a bunch of companies.
He said a, the answer is not in the box. it's in the band.
You know I called him last week to uh... 'cause... / I know.
He was happy you did.
Be strong, Larry
- May I join you? - Yeah
Heard a bout what happened.
- I'm very sorry. - Thanks
Had you talked to him... much, lately?
Things weren't that great between us and we couldn't talk about work
Because it was off limits.
Did you have something you wanted to show me?
- Look. we can save it for another day. - No, it's okay. I..
it will help take my mind off things.
- Yeah. yeah - Okay.
Well, I haven't been alde to sleep all week.
Thinkings about the push mechanism in handler. And then it just came to me.
It's in the wrong place.
- The wrong place. - Yeah
the answer is not on the box. It's on the band.
It's on the hand. It's on the hand.
Hey, you sure you are alright?
I think I ate something, I gotta go.
Teddy was on something very specific,
Now he is dead There's got to be a connection, Alice..
- I can fell it - So what are you saying?
You think they had something to do with Teddy's death
I don't know what I am saying,
All I know is all these ideas keep flying in.
He saids any kid working in his garage could put out of business,
It's almost like they know what ever kid is doing.
They're hacking into people's computers.
I guess they can get into some people's machine, but, not ..not Teddys.
He always had the most paranoid firewalls to protect his data.
They'd have to been like watching him physically
Watching him physically.
I think it is part of a camera
Number 21 isn't just a broadcast studio.
It's a surveillance post or something. That's why they have those disks on the roof.
Milo, think about that you're saying,
You honestly think that he would murder somebody?
I don't know, I gotta get in there
There's over 20 building ove there, and they all filled with computers
No, no, no. this is the only one with disks on the roof
The studios a front.
That's why they keep postponing the opening.
Ok, now you're scaring me.
Do you wanna just go?
'Cause we can go, you wanna just... Ieave
Go where, go where Alice? You can't get away from people like this
People like this. This is Gary you are talking about
You don't think I know that?
They're under investagation by the Justice Department
I mean, you said yourself that there are guys showing up all the time.
Then how could they possibly hope to hide a surveillance force,
How could they hope in hiding anything, You can't get in there anyways,
They have swipe cards. they have cameras, l mean it's like Fort knox for christ sakes
I'm implicated, Iím implicated Alice No, you're not / Yes, I am.
- No, you're not - No
Yes, Who's been using this code, huh?
Teddy's code. Whoever code this is. I have,
How do you think that makes me feel? This is my best friend,
You need to calm down, now
- I can't just walk away from this - Yeah, but you just can't walk in either.
- You're right - Yeah
Uh.. the construction is finished by 6 or 7,
The parking lot is cleared by 2 or 3 in the morning.
Even the earliest geeks don't get is till 5.
Honey, what are you talking about?
What, what are you saying right now?
Listen to me, I thinking about
how I gotta get in there and find out what the hell is going on.
What is true and what is ture,
Did you ever really notie, Because you're sounding like a mad man.
I won't pretend like everything is okay, Alice
That's how I got into this mess
I, that how
Alice listen, listen,
I'm not, I don't mean to / Don't / Iím not mad at you, Listen to me,
I think I can figure out a way to get in there.
But I can't do it on my own. So I need you to help me.
What do I do ?
So you believe me?
Just tell me what to do.
Whoa, whoa , whoa, Whoa, Sir. You got to use your own. Where's your ID?
I caught him tailgating. Building 20.
These cards are your own responsibility
There was an explosion in the closet in buiding 12 / What?
Hey, you can't wander around without ID, Just park your ass in that chair
Well, what can I tell ya ? It's pretty basic operations
You got your time clock, Fuse goes in here you just hook it in the switch over here
So, what do we have here Bob?
Some glorified cherry bomb, Some geeks idea of fun.
I've been saying we need a camera in this hall
To protect what? the mops?
an somebody pulling your chain again Bob.
Unless it's a diversion, Milo Hoffman is in my office he was.
- He was tailgating - Bob. Milo is not just another geek
He is very important to Gary, So lets not go there, allright?
Okay, We'll see you later
Is everything okay, Bob?
- Hey - Hi. Gary
- Working kinda late. huh? - Yeah , uh..
- Can I take a look ? - Yeah
- Oh, thatíd nice. That's excellent. - Thanks.
You seem kinda jumpy, Milo.
No. I'm just a.... I'm a little surprised to see you. Out here, now.
Well, I like to sneak in late at night sometimes to see who the obsessive ones are
Don't work too late .
I got my eye on you
How is it going? Big night
Switched from tea to coffee.
Brought new meaning to my week.
Well. now he knows. Nothing on there.
- Maybe he'll get back to work now. - Yeah. copy that.
- Speaking of which. - Okay. I'm on my way back.
- Did you download code San Jose. - Oh shit.
I'll do it.
- Shame we can't just walk in the front door. - Yeah, wouldn't Bob love that.
Yes, I need a thorough background cheek.
Yes, I need a thorough background cheek. I want to know every organisation
He's been involved with church groups
- How is it, Mr. Barton? - Yes
Excuse me, uh..
Do you remember me?
Meelo, isn't it?
- Milo - Milo
I really need to talk to you sir, like..
Right, uh.. Give me a few seconds with messy here
You can go into my office
You can go into my office l won't be late but a moment
- Milo - Hey! uh.. Yeah!

- No problem, have a seat - Iím O.K
- You look a little upset
- You look a little upset - I am sir, I am
What's the problem, son
my friend, my best friend Teddy
He was killed in Silicon Valley and I..I thought
maybe there is someway l could help find the suspect
- You mean Teddy Chan - Yes, sir
Well, I guess you didn't see the 11 oíclock news last night
San Jose police picked up a suspect and they're holding them without bail
That's um..I hope I'll sleep better tonight
Well um, Iím a little disappointed I thought that you decided to join our side.
No sir, no, Iím a real happy there at NURV. but um.. thank you.
Thank Thank you for your time.
So he didn't mention that he was going to the Justice Department? / No
You're not losing your hold on him, are you, Rebecca?
Don't forget your part of the deal.
You got a very good thing going here.
Phill, he'll tell me when he gets back.
Well, that will be the test. Won't it?
It's l0 oíclock, Iíve been so worried about you
What did you see in there?
- Nothing - Nothing?
- Nothing - Nothing?
It's exactly what they said it is
An unfinished broadcast studio
You know, I think Iíve been putting my own guilt on Gray
Yeah. If Iíve done the start up, Maybe Teddy would still be alive.
Or maybe you would be dead too.
Anyway, I figure instead of evolving all these paranoid delusions
and scaring you. I should do something useful with my grief
So I went to see that guy Barton at the DOJ Do you remember him?
I wanted to see if I could help him find Teddy's killers
and it turns out that they got the guys last night so..
I have been so worried about you
You were right to let him break into 21
He felt pretty foolish afterwards
He said it was all to do with his own guilt you know.
Not being there. No doing the start up
I mean his best friend was just killed.
You're convinced he is completely focused on SYNAPSE again.
- He's not acting? - No
he is pretty honest with his feelings
I don't think he knows how to act. Alright?
Good. That's all for now.
Lisa, I had to tell someone.
They know everything about everybody.
There're stealing code from all over the place.
And sometimes, if someone gets ahead of them, like Teddy
- It's all undetectable. - What?
The crimes are hand tailored. These guys are in the information business.
It's a chinese guy, frame a local racist.
And plus, Iím sure Gary has maximum deniability.
He tells his people,
surprise me, solve the problem, defy me
They turn around and tell the next person the same things.
That sounds crazy why would he put himself on the line like that?
the guys invested billions on getting there first.
He will do anything to get his date He has to....
Lisa, they killed my best friends
I living with someone they're paid to sleep with me
We have to do something Like what, What could we possibly do
I don't know yet. But we are one step ahead of them
They don't know Iíve been in the Daycare center, Just 21.
They let me do that
That's all they know though
I'm sorry, Milo
Alright? I'm sorry
Lisa, I know why you won't let anyone near you.
I know what he did to you
If you leave now, you could be in danger
They would use my step father
They could frame him if they had too, yeah.
What about the FBl?
I went to the DOJ, but they got a guy on the payroll over there. Maybe others.
Who knows who there're paying?
Well, who can we trust?
I mean how do you let go of a secret without telling the wrong person?
I don't know
We tell everybody at once
See, that way there is no secret left to protect.
If everybody knows, they can't touch us.
What about 60 minutes?
CBS news's partnered with NURV information system
in a cable news network due to launch Fall of June,2001
AOL-Time warner has a 40% stake in Gary's setup device and it also takes out CNN..
Disney Join NURV's adventure ABC is out
Look, any of these places could a more or all of them
- Wait - What?
How close are you to finishing SYNAPSE?
He's got all the satellites up.
There's dishes on top of 21. He's building this mega network just for SYNAPSE.
We can connect to everybody on every device simultaneously.
That's what SYNAPSE is
That's what we'll use ...
So what's in the Daycare Center is a top of raw material that's all over the place
What I need you to do is design some kind of a graphic format
so people could following what there're seeing
- Shit - What?
I would have to get into Gary's house to get the satellite address.
He's running the whole thing from his work phone.
You mean break in?
I don't know, I don't know...
And what if the dishes on top of 21 aren't hot yet
the place isn't even finished.
I'll go up
You're not afraid?
testing.. UPLlK ACTlVE..

Consumers don't care where new ideas come from Just so long they're offered a competitive price,
Software business environment.
There're a one or a zero, alive or dead
You're a one or a zero. Alive or dead, or dead
We do have a monopoly, we do have a monopoly here a NURV
Those who don't innovate are doomed
to die doomed to die.
to die. to die. doomed to die.
There is no second place
SYNAPSE will fully unite the global village
New ideas're ready to be devoured,devoured, re-defined
This business is binary,
either a one or a zero, a zero, a zero,
alive or dead, alive or dead, alive or dead, alive, dead, alive.
Surrounded by predators. Those who don't innovate
Those who don't innovate
are doomed to die There is no second place
Consumers don't care where new ideas come from
Consumers don't care where new ideas come from Just so long as they are offered a competitive price
World with a good idea can put us out of business
Alive or dead
We do have a monopoly here at NURV.
There's no second place, one or a zero, alive or dead
Are you insane? What do you think you're doing?
I'm letting people know what you've been doing
Phil, where is this signal coming from?
I'm working on it, I am working on it.
A good chess player always knows his oppenents moves before he makes them.
Isn't that right Gray? / You think you know all my moves? You arrogant little bastard
You think they're are going to come after me?
Now that SYNAPSE is here
This is the technology that'll fuel business for the next 30 years
You think they are going to allow foreign competitors an opening like that?
Undermined the entire economy
Over what? A cyber prank?
Then you don't have anything to worry about. Do you?
The Lawyers at the gate Gary. They say the Feds are on their way.
It's coming from NURV. Building 21
Call security, get someone over there now.
Break down the door, if yo have too
But get me that disk. Get it here
How did this happen Phil? I dion't know
She said Milo had SYNAPSE, he left the campus and..
You lied, for him... You're playing with fire
If you think for second I won't send you back where you came from.
Hey Gary I want you to see this
Are you still proud of me?
You guys know where you need to be.. Go, go, go!!
Rany, Danny come on lets get out of here Come on, Lest's go, let's go .
Rebecca, Rebecca come on, let's go.

then be associate with yours
This was mine, Milo
You tell that to the people you stole it from, Tell it to Teddy
Come on, it's only a matter of time before someone owns the information
You can't stop it, you slowed it down
I slowed you down Gary. That's what matter to me
This isn't a game.
In the real world, when you kill people, they die. For real!
And in the real world, you're Fucked!
Are you coming?
Let them go
Tomorrow, he is the most famous geek in the world
Gary, we need information Iíve been betraid
Randy and Phil are missing?
Something going on! Take this down
Come to my attention,
Certain rouge elements of my company have been involed in illegal activities
in an attempt to discredit me and risk control of my company.
I'm most shocked and upset by this betrail.
I will do everything in my power to co-operate with the authorities to bring these criminals to Justice.
News that the FBl agent have arrested NURV CEO Gray Winston,
TV's, cellphones and PC's were interrupted world wide last night
by a huge broadcast initiated by programmer Milo Hoffmann.
Police have also arrested these other members of Winstons team at a Portland airfield as they attempted to board a private jet.
Justice officials reacted swiftly..
Man, Clinton testimony didn't get this many hits
This is, this is awesome
I mean there is 400 requests a second, Brain.
We did this l surprised this isn't blowing the server
Wow, Whoa get over her
Come here, Come here
Over 18 million people have downloaded the source code for SYNAPSE from the skullbox website.

Hi there, Just a couple questions Milo Hoffmann going to testify
Do you know where he is now?
How many hits have you guy's registered?
What's your relationship to milo Hoffmann?
Good luck Okay
It wasn't our false
Do you consider this an ultraman victory for open source

It means we've given SYNAPSE back to the people it was stolen from.
Human knowledge belongs to the world
