SCENE 3 Telly tells Oscar all about the song at his newsstand and tries to initiate a performance of it. Oscar insists that Telly sing the whole song, both of their parts, so he can understand it better and fully judge whether or not he wants to participate. Telly goes through the whole song, but Oscar doesn't want to sing any of it.
