Why can't I just send a PDF to the Agent and ask him to print it himself?
Because you'll look like an amateur who's already a pain in the butt by asking for favors - you're basically asking him to pay for the cost of the printing & binding and the time it takes either him or his assistant to do it. Remember, at this stage in the game, you're chasing him, so show a little initiative and professionalism.

Also keep in mind that no one likes reading a script whilst sitting at a computer. Not the best environment for a relaxing evaluation. Ideally, you want that high-powered agent, manager or producer firmly planted poolside with a drink in one hand and your screenplay in the other. Sending a hardcopy will make you look like a pro and not a wannabe.
