SCENE 3, cont'd
Back in Bob's apartment, he is giving Biff and Sully a piano lesson. Biff wants Bob to listen to him play first. He pounds out the notes to London Bridge. He starts off adequately but then goes off key halfway through. All the same, he tells Bob that the piano lesson is for his partner rather than for him, saying that Sully sometimes fools around while playing. Sully proves him wrong, however, by playing a beautiful, full Chopinesque piece. Biff seems oblivious to his obvious gift, though, and asks Bob if he could teach Sully to play like him. Bob says it would be impossible. "There it is, Sul," says Biff. "Some people got talent, some people don't." "You can say that again," Bob says softly to the camera.
