Hello, Don. Elizabeth Holmes.

And when Larry Ellison came to you,

with his vision for how Oracle
could organize data

you said, "How much do you need?"

I want you to meet Larry Ellison.

LARRY ELLISON: If you want
this, you gotta fight.

That's what it takes to run
a billion-dollar company.

Is that what you really want?

- Yes.
- What are you willing to do to get it?

We faked the demo.

Don't tell anyone else.

ELIZABETH: Our series B round closed

at $ million.

What were you doing in India, Mr. Bal...

It's Balwani.

And I've actually got somewhere to be.

- Oh, where?
- I'm buying an iPhone.

A what?

It's new.

And why do you need
another phone, Mr. Balwani?

What is the phone for?

Is this funny to you?

No, sir.

What's your occupation?

I started a company
and then I sold it so...

I'm going to ask you again,
what is your occupation?

I don't have one.

You... designed the iPhone.

- Yeah.
- I'm... I'm so starstruck right now.

Oh, I can't take all the credit.

And Steve wouldn't let me.

But I did make it prettier to look at.

See, that's the thing
Steve really understood.

You can have all the right tech
on the inside,

but without the right look...

- None of it matters.
- Exactly.

That's my weakness.

I, I never think about
what things look like.

I can see that.

Oh no, you don't...

You don't like what I'm wearing?

You should just dress more like a CEO.

I... when I was with Mark Zuckerberg

at the photoshoot for Inc,

he was wearing soccer
sandals, flip-flops.

Yes, but you are a woman.

If you wear soccer sandals to work,

everyone would think that
you're having a mental breakdown.

Yeah, I just don't want to waste my time
picking out what I'm going to wear.

- It's not a waste of time.
- For you. You're a designer.

Listen, how you present yourself
to the world

is your identity.

It's, it's your armor.

You're a good person.
I'm rooting for you.


it's just really exciting to me
that you're a young female CEO

instead of a cocky little boy
in a sweatshirt.


Yeah... What do I have to do
to convince you to,

to work here?

Avie Tevanian joined our board,
and he's a big fan of you.

I love Avie.

He said that you'd lose , shares

of Apple stock if you left.

It's my retirement.

- I got a wife. I got kids.
- Yeah.

But the outsiders have
to stick together.

That's how we change the world.

Seriously, though,
your company has momentum now,

and when the board
starts smelling money,

they're going to get tough on you.

Watch your back.

Why the f*ck do you want a car
that doesn't make any noise?

It's a Prius, Sunny.
It's what everybody is driving.

Why do you even need a new car?

I like driving you.


[SCOFFS] Not even real leather.

I like it.

You know, I'm looking into this computer
science grad program at Stanford.

I'm thinking about
going back to school again.

What do you think?

Do you think my board respects me?

Sure. Just keep making them money.

Could they fire me? From my own company?

Of course, they can.

You took money from VCs. They own you.


Hey, you have any questions?


The demo cars don't lock.

My name's Bruce. If you have
any questions, let me know.

Uh, I have to get this.
It's Larry Ellison.


Hey, Sunny.

We should... go out.

Like, on a date or something.


Is she taking a call in there?

It's private.

NOEL: I know you're
not much of a reader,

but Elizabeth was just profiled
in Inc Magazine's

" Under " with Mark Zuckerberg.

- Oh.
- Who made Facebook.

LORRAINE: Is that the thing where
single people put their pictures up?

My stepson is on that.

Hey, not a big deal,
but has Elizabeth received

any emails from Richard lately?

No. Why would Richard
be emailing Elizabeth?

Well, this is kind of silly, actually,

but I think he was hurt

that she didn't contact him
for advice on her company,

you know, since his company
also invents biomedical devices,

and it made him a little angry.


He was mad she didn't
call him for advice?

Well... yeah.

He's been researching what she's doing.

I think he might be trying to have
a little fun with her company.

A little fun with her company? What?

He applied for a patent.

I don't really understand it,
but I think he wants her to buy him off,

you know, just for fun.

So your husband
has been secretly researching

my daughter's company
so he can make money off her?

My -year-old daughter!

Well, you don't have
to make it sound so bad.

Mrs. Holmes.


Mrs. Holmes!

Mrs. Holmes.




NOEL: Richard.

Hello, Noel. You look like
you need a glass of water.

What did you do to Elizabeth?

LORRAINE: Richard.


Oh god.

You're trying to mess
with Elizabeth's company?

Richard. Everybody, be nice.

RICHARD: There's nothing for you
to worry about, Noel.

He's just having fun.

I'm a businessman.

I think she's got a great idea.
I want to be a part of it.

So I looked into what
she's going to need,

and I invented a mechanism

that will alert doctors

when their patients have
an abnormal blood test.

If she ever wants to put a blood
testing device in someone's home,

she'll have to license my invention.

Buy you off.

- Your words, not mine.
- You're sick.

If she had called and asked my advice,

I would have told her,
things like this can happen.

You know what, can I get anyone coffee?

You're a tiny man!

Oh, stop being such a nice little WASP

and tell me to f*ck off, Noel.

f*ck off!

No, you f*ck off.

f*ck you. f*ck you. f*ck you!


- You said that to him?

Your mom used the F-word.

I said it a couple of times.

Thank you. I, I haven't heard
about any patent applications.

He's, he's bluffing.

I'm never speaking to Lorraine again.

They both can f*ck off.

We can't test this on people.


DON: They're all waitin' for you.



Hi. Hi, guys.

Thanks for coming.



[SOFTLY] It's great that, uh,
we got the full board here.


... new location, new space.

Speak up. We can't hear you!


So we have some... [MACHINE WHIRRING]

We have... [HAMMERING]

[LOUDLY] We have some
exciting new developments.

Including Ana Arriola
who has been with us for a few months,

and Ana and Avie Tevanian
know each other from Apple.

That's right. We stole her from Apple.

Has there been any progress
on the prototype?

Because I know an engineer who can
come in and really ramp things up.

His name is Brendan Morris.

Thank you, but we are full steam ahead.

What do you think they're talking about?

He's worried about
the Novartis contract, Avie.

Says it hasn't come through.

Well, tell him that, that we have plenty
of pharmaceutical interest.

Well, I haven't seen
any of the contracts.

I mean, nobody's talking
about it except Avie,

but he'll bring it up.

I don't know how long
he'll listen to me,

but what do you want me to do?

I need friends on the board.

Of course, I'm there for you.

You know, I-I've been thinking, um...

when we get into
this new office space,

we should...

You should come on as, as a consultant.

I'm already a consultant.

Right, but it will be more formal.

Like, you would have
your own office and a salary.

Oh. Uh, that sounds perfect.




uh, I was wondering,

is, um, is there any
news about Novartis?

Uh, unfortunately, we just got word
that it's not going to work out.


Really? Uh, what happened?

I thought you said the contracts
were in the final stages.

It's, it's complicated.

Um, but I'd like to,
I'd like to really focus right now

on, on the new space.

Yeah, um, I'm just...

The projections build in the revenue
from the Novartis deal.

Should, should we even be looking
at this space

if we don't have that revenue anymore?

Well, uh, we're finalizing
contracts with Pfizer.

- You are?
- Yeah.

Uh, I read the information you sent out,

and you haven't had
a successful validation study

with actual patients yet.

Well, that's a formality.

Validating that the machine works
is a formality.

DON: Elizabeth?

Look, um, I'm here to help you.

That's why you have a board. To help.

My father was an entrepreneur.

I understand there are ups and downs.

Yeah, we have plenty
of pharmaceutical interest,

including Pfizer, so...

Yes, but are you going through
with the Pfizer trial?

Because Ana told me...

You talked to Ana?

Well, she says
she hasn't seen the device yet.

She hasn't even gotten
dimensions for it.

If you want to know,
you just, you can ask me.

I am asking you. That is what I'm doing.

We are going through with the trial.

You're going forward
with the Pfizer trial?

Yes, we are. We are ready.

Uh, you know,
if you, if you'll excuse me,

I have to, I have to go talk to Don.

Wait, uh, wait, your, um...



We need to find out which employees
are talking to each other.

How should I...

How do you want me to do that?

Oh, I don't know.

Friend them on Facebook
and then find out

who's friends with each other.

Friend every employee in the company
on Facebook to spy on them?

That's what I said. Okay?


I searched for Richard Fuisz.

The IT guys found this.

They said it was randomly sent
to info@theranos.com,

the general email.

So apparently, he just patented an alert

for a home blood-testing device,

and they think
you might have to buy him out.

It's just a trial.
That's... everybody does trials.


You're minutes late.

I just found out that Richard Fuisz,

my neighbor growing up,

is trying to get me to buy
a patent off of him.

Avie Tevanian was asking
about our cash flow at the site,

so I had to show him that we were moving

on the pharmaceutical contracts.

So I had to say yes to Pfizer, and...

- I don't, I don't want this.
- It's okay. You can leave it.

Can you get off your
phone, we're eating.

I can't, I can't do this.
I have to get back to the office

- Then I'll come with you. I'll help.
- No.


Just no?

I, I don't want them to think
that I need my boyfriend's help.

No one knows I'm your boyfriend.

No one knows who I am.

I can't do one thing wrong.

I can't give them one
reason to doubt me,

or I will lose my company.

They will take it away, okay.

I'll-I'll see you at home.

Excuse me.

Excuse me!

This has truffle oil in it.

Oh, um, there's no
truffle oil in this...

You think I don't know
what truffle oil smells like, don't you?

- No, no, I...
- That table over there has truffle oil.

And that table and that table?

I can smell f*cking truffle oil

Your secrets are safe with me.

So how are you?

I know it can be hard
being without your phone.

Are you from around here?
Do you go to, like, school nearby?

St... uh, Stanford.

Oh, awesome.

I'm kind of in between schools
at the moment,

so I thought I'd work as a Genius

until I could figure out
what I want to do.

What was your dream as a child?

As a child?

No, I don't think
I had any dreams as a child.

That sounds nice.

What does?

Not knowing what you want
to do with your life.

It's not nice, it's scary.

Why are you scared?

You can do anything,
anything that you want.

Thank you.

Because it,
it doesn't really matter, right?

Nothing you do will matter
because you don't really care.

I mean, you, you, you have no ambition.

You don't want to do anything important.

You're just a person.


Now it should, um...

Oh no.

No, no.

I don't know what happened,
but, um, all of your information is...

I mean, it-it's just, it's gone.

I'm so sorry, I...

I-I did everything right.

I mean, I followed all of the steps.

I, I was just too quick to, um...

I'm so sorry.

Elizabeth, we're ready for you.

Ah, Elizabeth.

You are here because we collectively

have lost confidence in your ability

to continue on as CEO of this company.

You have misrepresented
the revenue stream.

You have been unable to manage
research and development.

You have continuously,
time after time, missed deadline

resulting in the withdrawal
of our contracts

from pharmaceutical companies,

including, we just found out, Pfizer.

Pfizer stated it can
no longer go forward

based upon the results
of its validation study in Nashville.

Your design team has resigned.

And last but not least, this,

this man, Richard Fuisz,

has filed a competing patent.

[CHUCKLES] This is a mess.

I mean, you have to understand
where we're coming from here.

You need adult supervision.

We've decided that Tom here

should step in as acting CEO

until we can find somebody else.

Of course, yeah, I...

I understand.

I just...

I did everything right.

I... I followed all the steps.

I did it too quick.

And I'm sorry.

I got ahead of myself,
and all your concerns are valid.

You're right. I am in over my head.

I'm just a girl

who had a dream to change the world.

I just didn't realize

how hard it was going to be.

I need help.

You're absolutely right.
I need adult supervision.


And that's...

that's why I reached
out to an old friend

to come on board and help me.

He offered to bring in $ million

and come on as COO,

but only if I'm still
the CEO, obviously.

But that's up to you.


Can you forgive me?

He had an idea that I'd love
to get your advice on.

He thinks that

we should forget
pharmaceutical companies

and try to target retail.

Create our own retail space...
like an Apple Store.

I don't know.

What do you think?


I'm in here.

It's not working between us.

I know that.

You could stay here for a while
until you find your own place.

- I'll move out.
- No. No.

Oh, come on, I can't let you move out.


Come work with me.

Do you want that?

I need a $ million investment.

So the board will keep you as CEO.

You already told them you had it.

ELIZABETH: I wanna be a billionaire.

It's not about the money.

You have to have a purpose.

What are you afraid of?

ELIZABETH: I can't do one thing wrong.

I can't give them
one reason to doubt me.

I'm going to be on
the cutting edge of healthcare.

It's going to change the world.

MAN: Everything' s changing.

These kids don't get bogged down about
the way things have always been done.

They want to change things now!

ELIZABETH: We launch in hours.

We did it!

I don't believe a word she says.

MAN : There's something going on.

Why are they not
actively seeking FDA approval?

Her whole image is fake.

- You don't understand the business.
- And you don't understand the science!

ELIZABETH: This isn't just my company.

This is who I am.

There's only one thing you need
to know about Elizabeth. She's a fraud.

I know you want to believe
everything she's saying is real.

The way Theranos is operating,
someone is gonna get k*lled.

You're going to lose everything.


No, I'm, I'm fine. Everything's fine.
