This is, actually, suddenly, auditions make me so nervous,
00:04
I'm even pretending, I'm even pretending.
00:06
[Voiceover] You're totally pretending to [mumbles]
00:08
[laughing]
00:09
And I'm sure I'll do it better than Marlon Brando ever did
00:10
[Voiceover] You would do it much better than Marlon Brando
00:12
Yeah, no biggie.
00:18
It wasn't him, Charlie, it was you. You remember that
00:23
night in the garden you came down to my dressing room and
00:25
you said, "Kid this ain't your night, we're going to go for
00:28
the price on Wilson?" Do you remember that?
00:31
"This ain't your night?" My night?
00:36
I could have taken Wilson apart!
00:37
So what happens? She gets the title shot outdoors
00:41
in the ballpark and what do I get? I get a one way ticket
00:44
to Belucaville. He was my brother, Charlie, you should have
00:48
looked out for me a little bit. You should have taken care
00:52
of me just a little bit so I wouldn't have to take them
00:55
dives for the shut in money! No, because you don't
00:59
understand, I could have had class, I could have been a
01:02
contender, I could have been somebody instead of a bum,
01:07
which is what I am, let's face it.
01:11
Yeah it was you, Charlie.
01:17
[Voiceover] Fantastic.
01:17
How does Marlon Brando, he's like, [mocking]
01:20
"It wasn't him, Charlie, It was you, remember that night,
01:23
kid, this ain't your night!"
