Quotes

#Quote
1[About accidentally breaking his nose while writing a scene] If it were a Martin Scorsese film, they would've said, "Let's do it again but this time less blood."
2[on the process of creating the dense opening scene of The Social Network (2010)] David Fincher and Scott Rudin are very, very good at what they do. I believe that Scott Rudin is the best producer of plays and movies alive. I think he gives a lot of the dead producers a run for their money. But he is a demanding person, an exacting person. He may not speak to you the way you'd like to be spoken to. He's a tough, tough man. So is David. David is a truly phenomenal artist, with no affect, no pretention at all, but with a great eye, and uncompromising. At the beginning of the process of making a movie, the first battle you're going to have is over the budget, right? The director is going to sit down with, it's called a line producer, and they're going to figure out as close as they can what the budget of the movie is going to be, by going through scene by scene, I'm going to need 100 extras here, I'm going to need a helicopter there, I need this kind of camera for this, this I don't - you know, I want to shoot on the exact location. I don't want to shoot in Pasadena, pretending it's this place, that kind of thing. And they'll come up with a budget for the movie, and the studio is doing the exact same thing with their in-house line producer. Those two numbers are going to be far apart, and there is a negotiation to find your way in the middle, unless you're David Fincher, OK, who comes in and says $41 million. And the studio will say $30 million, and he'll say, no, $41 million, and the studio is, like, $35 million. And he said listen, you think I'm negotiating with you. I'm telling you, the price of this movie is $41 million. That's what it costs to make this movie. I don't want to make the $40.5 million version of the movie. Now, some people might think you're being a jerk. Find your way, figure out a way to make the movie you want to make for what's somewhere in the middle. I don't think that David is being a jerk. I absolutely loved working with him. An average screenplay is about 120 pages long. My screenplays have higher page counts because there's more dialogue and less action and just, by the rules of screenplay format, dialogue takes up more room on the page and less time on the screen than action, which takes up more room on the page - I'm sorry, which takes up less room on the page and more time on the screen. So the average screenplay is about 120 pages. A Few Good Men (1992) was about 140 pages. "The Social Network" was 178 pages, and the studio said, OK, the first thing you've got to do is figure out a way to cut 30 pages from this. And David said, I don't think so. I think this is a two hour movie, and he came over to my house with his iPhone set on stopwatch mode, and he said, "I want you to read the entire script out loud for me, at the pace you heard it in your head when you were writing it, and I'm going to write down the timing of each scene." So that opening scene that you've been very complimentary about, with Jesse Eisenberg and Rooney Mara. If I read it and it was seven minutes and 22 seconds, then in rehearsal, and David demanded part of what was baked into the budget was rehearsal time, and part of what wasn't baked into the budget, I remember David saying to them, "Well, I can cut $125,000 out of your budget right away, because we're not doing any test screenings." That's the kind of thing. And I just thought David, Scott, these are the bullies I want to be with. You know, they're great when they're on your team. And anyway, in rehearsal, Jesse and Rooney would rehearse the scene, David would say great, and he would give them a couple of notes, and always end with, "But this scene is seven minutes and 22 seconds long, and you're doing it at seven minutes and 40 seconds. So I don't care how, but you're going to have to talk faster somewhere, because I promise you, this scene plays best at seven minutes and 22 seconds." [2016]
3[on his rationale for The West Wing (1999)] I was a bit tickled by the fact that we don't have a king in this country. We have a person with a temp job. My favorite moments on 'The West Wing' were never in the Situation Room or abroad. They were always when I could make the President human. You do that by making him somebody's husband, somebody's father, somebody's son. It was fundamentally a workplace drama about a man and his children. I wanted him to become one of us. In our history, in popular culture, we portray our leaders as either Machiavellian or idiots. I didn't want to do either. They're not backstabbing or power-grabbing. We have to know if they woke up this morning wanting to be there, wanting to work for us. Once we know that, we're going to forgive the mistakes that they make. I wanted them to lose as much as they can. So I got to create my own White House.
4[on A Few Good Men (1992)] A lot of what I was concentrating on in the screenplay adaptation was simply doing a rewrite - writing it better. But it was also my first time learning that a camera wasn't just a device to record performances, that it has a vocabulary. The audience may not know how to speak that vocabulary, but it understands it fluently. If you do a slow push-in on a glass of water, it becomes a meaningful glass of water, and you can cut that speech you love from the play about how meaningful the glass of water is. I've never written anything that I don't wish I could get another chance at. "A Few Good Men" has been my white whale for 25 years. Just a few years ago, I did a new draft for a West End production. I'm older and more experienced now, and I could write it better. I'd politely ignore the voices that are asking: How are you going to open it up? There's no rule of cinema that says claustrophobia is bad. Ask Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) or 12 Angry Men (1957).
5[to his daughter in a Father's Day letter] The nurse taught me how to swaddle you. My first try didn't go so well.You had a look on your face that said, 'Oh my God, my father's a moron'.
6[on his college mentor, the late Arthur Storch] Arthur's reputation as a director, and as a disciple of Lee Strasberg, was a big reason why a lot of us went to S.U. [Syracuse U.] As a freshman you didn't speak to him, and it was unlikely he'd know your name. But he'd generally zero in on two seniors who he felt were worth his time, and I was one of those seniors. 'You have the capacity to be so much better than you are,' he started saying to me in September of my senior year. He was still saying it in May. On the last day of classes he said it again, and I said, 'How?' and he answered, 'Dare to fail.' I've been coming through on his admonition ever since.
7I am truly at my happiest, not when I am writing an aria for an actor or making a grand political or social point. I am at my happiest when I've figured out a fun way for somebody to slip on a banana peel. That's really what I want to do.
8[on how audiences are watching TV in 2012] Audiences are watching at a time other than when the network puts it on. Unlike with a movie or a play, I don't get to experience the audience watching the show. On Sunday night, it feels like I'm the only one watching it. It's hard to imagine anyone else is too.
9My big fear when I quit drugs was that I wouldn't be able to write anymore. Because if you're a writer, and you're on a roll - and I was on a roll when I was high - you don't want to change anything about the way you work.
10[speaking about the importance of making good decisions at his 2012 commencement address at Syracuse University] I've made some bad decisions. I lost a decade of my life to cocaine addiction. You know how I got addicted to cocaine? I tried it. The problem with drugs is that they work--right up until the moment they decimate your life. Try cocaine, and you'll become addicted to it. Become addicted to cocaine, and you will either be dead, or you will wish you were dead, but it will only be one of the other. My big fear was that I wasn't going to be able to write without it. There was no way I was going to be able to write without it. Last month I celebrated my eleven-year anniversary of not using coke. In that eleven years, I've written three television series, three movies, a Broadway play, won the Academy Award, and taught my daughter all the lyrics to "Pirates of Penzance." I have good friends.
11I became a writer, because I wanted to be Donald Hollinger, because he got a girl like Ann Marie.
12I think socializing on the Internet is to socializing what reality TV is to reality.
13[on creating Mark Zuckerberg's persona for The Social Network (2010)] I identify with him. I've felt like I've had my nose pressed up against the glass of some cool party I have't been invited to. I've felt the world has reflected back to me that I'm a loser.
14I am all for everyone having a voice, I just don't think everyone has earned the microphone. And that's what the Internet has done.
15When I am setting out to do something, I don't consider the state of the culture. I can't possibly conceive of what the most people are going to like. Honest to God, I write something that I like, that I think my friends would like and that I think my father would like, and I keep my fingers crossed that enough other people are going to like it that I can earn a living.
16When things that are very mean-spirited and voyeuristic go on TV, I think it's [like] bad crack in the schoolyard.
17[speaking about freebased cocaine] I had found a drug I absolutely love and that gave me a real break from a certain nervous tension that I kind of carry with me moment to moment.
18I love writing but hate starting. The page is awfully white and it says, "You may have fooled some of the people some of the time but those days are over, giftless. I'm not your agent and I'm not your mommy, I'm a white piece of paper, you wanna dance with me?" and I really, really don't. I'll go peaceable-like.
