This is, actually, suddenly, auditions make me so nervous,
I'm even pretending, I'm even pretending.
[Voiceover] You're totally pretending to (mumbles)
And I'm sure I'll do it better than Marlon Brando ever did
[Voiceover] You would do it much better than Marlon Brando
Yeah, no biggie.
It wasn't him, Charlie, it was you. You remember that
night in the garden you came down to my dressing room and
you said, Kid this ain't your night, we're going to go for
the price on Wilson? Do you remember that?
This ain't your night? My night?
I could have taken Wilson apart!
So what happens? She gets the title shot outdoors
in the ballpark and what do I get? I get a one way ticket
to Belucaville. He was my brother, Charlie, you should have
looked out for me a little bit. You should have taken care
of me just a little bit so I wouldn't have to take them
dives for the shut in money! No, because you don't
understand, I could have had class, I could have been a
contender, I could have been somebody instead of a bum,
which is what I am, let's face it.
Yeah it was you, Charlie.
How does Marlon Brando, he's like, (mocking)
It wasn't him, Charlie, It was you, remember that night,
kid, this ain't your night!
