TABATHA STUDIES JB ON THE MOVIE SCREENS.
Something's off here.
I don't know.
Miles is nonchalantly polishing his guitar.
Maybe someone's interfering.
Everyone looks over at Trent.
TRENT (TO MILES)
Maybe at night after we've gone home..
Oops? Did I not mention that?
You're kidding me. How long?
Uh..since it became obvious our
stuff was on a one-way train
I don't get it. What's going on?
He's been laying down his own
stuff at night.
You really have to ask?
Is this because nobody liked your
concept album idea? We talked
about this, man. This isn't
a one man show anymore,
we know how to write
Yeah that's worked out.
You arrogant prick. We were one
scene away from finishing the
movie. You seriously couldn't
just hang in there
for one more song?
I gave it a fair shake, believe me.
Please. You've never given anything a fair
shake unless it was your idea.
I thought we weren't going to make this about me?
That's the point. It's not about you.
We're a band in case that somehow
slipped your mind. That movie
couldhave kept the
lights on in here.
You want to compromise everything we
been working towards for years
go for it. Just don't
expect me to help.
That's right. You're the
only real artist, here.
No, Tabatha, I just respect our music too
much to sell it out to some Hollywood
hack for a quick buck. Music first,
no compromise, remember that?
Who's the one who couldn't
hang in there for
one more song?
You made that impossible.
Look man, if you wanna go solo, go
solo but don't sabotage us.
Maybe you should listen to what I
laid down before we start
calling it sabotage.
Then just play it instead of sneaking
around in the dark. Let us decide.
I got a better idea.
MILES NODS TO JB ON THE MONITORS.
Let's let him decide.
This isn't a game.
Life is a game, sweetheart. You wanna
get our hero back to the bubble gum
ending, you better step yours up.
Is that a challenge?
What do you think?
What are the stakes?
How about the winner's songs get
a spot on the new album. Loser's
can settle for B-sides
and bonus tracks.
