The story of Steve Jobs' ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.

[last lines]
Steve Jobs: Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things - they push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Steve Jobs: [narrating] When you grow up, you tend to get told the world is the way that it is, and your life is just to live your life inside the world and try not to bash into the walls too much. But that's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact. And that is that everything around you that you call life, was made up by people that are no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use. To shake off this erroneous notion that life is just there, and you're just gonna live in it, versus embrace it. Change it, improve it. Make your mark upon it. And once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.
Steve Jobs: Get your shit and get out! You're done.
Gil Amelio: What? Are you gonna fire me?
Steve Jobs: No! I ALREADY FIRED YOU!... Why are you still here?
Bill Atkinson: Steve, he, he was our best programmer in the division.
Steve Jobs: He's the best programmer that doesn't care about our vision.
Arthur Rock: [about John Sculley] What the hell makes you think you cn get him? Why would he ever leave Pepsi?
Steve Jobs: Nobody remembers the world best soda salesman.
Ed Woolard: If you want to get back what you lost, now is the time.
Steve Jobs: I never lost anything. It was stolen from me.
Gareth Chang: [having dismissed the old Apple executives] What are we going to do now?
Steve Jobs: We're gonna put a dent in the universe.
John Sculley: You can make a great product. But you have to convince people that what you're selling is greater. We're not selling computers. We're selling what they can do with a computer. A tool for the mind. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is limitless.
Steve Wozniak: I just wanted to be one of the guys. And of all the guys I knew, you were the coolest. You were smart, quick-witted. This was my chance to do what I loved. And to do it for fun. That's all I ever wanted. I thought that's what you wanted to. Something's happening to you, Steve.
[begins walking away]
Steve Jobs: I'm growing up, Woz.
Steve Wozniak: No. No you're not.
Steve Wozniak: How about "Enterprise Computers"?
Steve Jobs: No! No Star Trek names, or I swear, I will drive this car right off a cliff.
Steve Jobs: So this is the Macintosh team.
Bill Atkinson: Um hmm.
[startled]
Bill Atkinson: Jesus!
Steve Jobs: No, it's just Steve.
Steve Wozniak: Nobody wants to buy a computer. Nobody!
Steve Jobs: How can somebody know what they want if they've never even seen it?
Steve Wozniak: Huh?
Steve Jobs: We're going to Homebrew...
Jonathan Ive: Steve, we're glad you're back.
Steve Jobs: I'm not back.
Steve Jobs: [as he leaves] Yet...
Steve Jobs: Welcome to Apple Computer.
Rod Holt: Okay, show me this revolutionary piece o' shit.
Steve Wozniak: We can't afford to pay three people right now.
Steve Jobs: We can't afford to pay *ourselves* unless we deliver. And don't worry about Chris, he's just a kid. So he just wants to help.
Steve Wozniak: You're just a kid.
Steve Jobs: [to Macintosh team] I don't ever want to hear you tell me you can't make it faster.
Steve Jobs: [pointing the chips on the Apple I board] It's got to be straight, and those more symmetric.
Paul Terrell: All right, Steve. I'll try to sell. But if I don't, I'm not making another order.
Steve Jobs: Okay, that's fine... But I think you might be really interested in our second model.
Paul Terrell: What's the second model?
Steve Wozniak: What are you talking about?
Steve Jobs: [in an undertone] All-in-one.
Steve Jobs: I need you to re-design.
Rod Holt: Re-design what?
Steve Jobs: Power supply, from scratch. It can't have a fan, can't overheat and needs to fit size in the box. This size.
Steve Jobs: We're gonna kill every other project. Everything. This company will not make shit anymore.
Steve Jobs: I am really excited we have something really special to share with you today. In total, through iMac and PowerBook lines, we've sold over 3 million units this year.
[applause]
Steve Jobs: Okay, that's it.
[huge laughter from the audience]
Steve Jobs: But, ah, maybe there's one more thing.
Arthur Rock: John, you're roughly quiet.
John Sculley: Yeah, I'm sorry. I guess I'm just lost for words.
Steve Jobs: Head of Marketing, Pepsi genius's lost for words. It's him, not Mac!
Steve Jobs: [after trying Macintosh] It's great.
[some of his team laugh]
Steve Jobs: No, it's not... It's insanely great.
[applause]
Steve Jobs: [to Bill Gates on the phone] Let me make this perfectly clear, Bill, so that when I'm finished you can still see through those thick pretentious glasses you psychopathic unimaginative criminal! You stole... my software!
Steve Jobs: Andy Hertzfeld, are you good?
Arthur Rock: Macintosh is not even a toy. It's a joke. IBM's now moved on to mini-DECs, and so should we.
