The scene is towards the end of movie and in it, Eduardo angrily confronts Mark after learning that his was the only stake whose percentage decreased, and his name was removed from the masthead.
After yelling at Mark and reminding him that he was a cofounder of Facebook, Eduardo said in a lower voice: “You better lawyer up, a–hole. Because I’m not coming back for 30%. I’m coming back for everything.”
While reading Thirst Tweets in a Buzzfeed Zoom interview, Andrew opened up about the delivery of the line.
“The cool thing about that movie, my love for Jesse Eisenberg and the relationship we created for that film meant that I wanted that line to hurt him more than if I shouted it,” Andrew shared. “I wanted it to be lodged in his f***ng soul.”
He also joked that if he found himself in a situation where work wasn’t coming at him, he’d consider saying that line in people’s ears for money, as one of the tweets suggested.
“If I can’t make money in other ways, I will charge people for me to whisper in their ear, ‘You better lawyer up, a–hole,’” Andrew shared. “It’s kind of a good side gig.”
