Gosh, You've... Really Got Some Nice Toys Here

Schiller:
Come in, sit down.
Gruber:
Care if I talk? I'm kinda nervous.
Schiller:
Would you like some coffee?
Gruber:
Yeah, sure I guess -- that part of the product briefing?
Schiller:
No, just warming you up, that's all.
Gruber:
It's good hot coffee.
Schiller:
We’re starting to do some things differently.
Gruber:
Is this the product briefing now?
Schiller:
Yes. We’re starting to do some things differently. We wanted you here today to talk about OS X. You look down and you see Mountain Lion--
Gruber:
What?
Schiller:
What?
Gruber:
Mountain Lion, what's that?
Schiller:
Know what Lion is?
Gruber:
Of course.
Schiller:
Same thing.
Gruber:
I've never seen Mountain Lion but I understand what you mean.
Schiller:
You reach down and you flip Mountain Lion over on its back.
Gruber:
Did you make up this keynote, Mr. Schiller, or do the marketing and PR people do it for you?
Schiler:
Mountain Lion lays on its back, its operating system baking in the hot developer preview, beating its legs, trying to turn itself into iOS but it can't, not without your help, but you're not helping.
Gruber:
What do you mean I'm not helping?
Schiller:
I mean you're not helping. Why is that John? ... It's just a presentation, John. In answer to your query, the marketing and PR people created it. It's a keynote designed to provoke an emotional response. -- Shall we continue? Describe in single words only the good things that come into your mind about Steve Jobs.
Gruber:
Steve Jobs?
Schiller:
Yeah.
Gruber:
Let me tell you about Steve Jobs.
