Why didn't you come back after you fell off the wave?
[miserably] That wave... [sighs. Flashback is shown where young Z and Tank are competing] That last day, winning had become everything to me. I knew I was gonna beat Tank. But then uh, you know... he starts to surf circles around me. I saw what he was doing, I couldn't do what he was doing. Times had changed, you know, he... I didn't wanna walk back on that beach with all my fans there, you know, "Loser. I'm lookin' at Big Z, the loser, the has-been." So... [camera footage is shown where in a massive wave, Z had let go of his board and it smashed into the rocks] poof! Big Z's dead, and that's how it's gonna stay. Let me play that song. [begins playing his guitar]
[shocked] What about "Never give up?" What about "Find a way?"
[sighs] Yeah, well...
You're giving up, Z! You're giving up!
Yeah! I'm givin' up, that's my way. Givin' up.
I- I thought you were the one guy.
[fed up] You don't like it, find your own way! [walks back to his shack] Leave me out of it! Leave me out of it.
