背景介绍:女主人公卡梅伦创办的“穆特尼”公司是一家技术领先的在线网络游戏平台,后鉴于用户的交流需求,发展了互动社区。随着用户数的不断增长,交换及购买商品的需求不断凸现,由于彼时电子商务还处于萌芽阶段,用户基数不大、而且赢利模式并不明朗,做电子商务的IT公司基本上都是赔本赚吆喝。“穆特尼”通过黛安的资金注入加上博斯的巧妙周旋,以非常低廉的价格收购了当时专注于“在线物品交换”、且拥有较大知名度的“跳蚤市场”,开始在电子商务领域崭露头角、并受到了资本市场的高度关注。

黛安与唐娜一拍即合,打算趁风生水起,尽快将穆特尼融资上市,卡梅伦则希望不断发展社区、通过创新提高用户活跃度、将平台打造完美后再进行IPO,在会议召开之前,两人就因意见不合而产生了较大的摩擦,在股东会议召开之前时逢卡梅伦婚礼晚宴,唐娜丈夫高登出于好意,向卡梅伦摊牌唐娜决意进军IPO,而他自己尽管并不太赞成唐娜的提议,但出于夫妻关系,只能附和,希望卡梅伦找其颇为敬重的博斯商谈,能够妥善处理此事,不曾想卡梅伦义愤填膺,尽管找了博斯,博斯也建议她要顾全大局,凡事有商有量。卡梅伦提议招开股东会议,与唐娜针锋相对,于是便有了上面的精彩对白。
