MICHAEL LYNNE - President and COO, New Line Cinema

-  A New Universe

You take AOL and everything it's accomplished in the on-line  universe,  and you
take Time Warner and  everything  that it's  accomplished  and you put those two
together and everyone within our place certainly, but I think everyone out there
understands  the  explosive  capability  of those two  incredibly  talented  and
exceptional companies coming together. It is a new universe.

ROGER AMES - Chairman and CEO, Warner Music Group

-  Digital Opportunity

We now have a new  distribution  machine and access to a new group of consumers,
and an ability to reach them in a different way than we ever had before.

This now says you can take your music anywhere, and you can receive it anywhere,
you don't have to carry  around 50 tapes with you, or, you know,  batteries  for
your  Walkman.  It just  makes  music  much  more  ubiquitous,  you  know,  it's
everywhere. What it says is that there's a huge opportunity.  And I think that's
what's going to drive growth is that we'll see one,  the actual  consumption  of
music will  increase,  and two,  you will see people  using music more than they
used to in their lives.

Everyone is just  tremendously  excited that here we've leap  frogged  ourselves
into the future in a way that nobody could have expected.

JOSEPH J. COLLINS - Chairman and CEO, Time Warner Cable

-  The Internet Changes Everything

What's  happening  here in  America is that the  Internet  has come and begun to
change  everything,  and slowly but  surely,  it's going to move from the narrow
band  internet  that  it's been up `til now,  over to the  broad-band  Internet.
Virtually  every  product  and  service  that we have at Time Warner is impacted
profoundly by the Internet,  and,  basically,  AOL is going to be our guide into
all those aspects of the business.
