Billy (to Willy)
I’m going to be a folk singer.
I’m going to quit in the holidays.
Willy
If you were really keen on it, you’d do it now.
You don’t want to be sitting here as an old man, knowing you could have got out.
I’ve known guys like that and it destroys their whole life.
They just tell themselves that they could have done better.
They didn’t take the chance.
You’ve got the chance.
Go and do it.

Billy then says, “So I did it”
