Omer:
One and two, three and four, five, hey!

Iqbal Riza:
What are you doing?

Omer:
Nothing, nothing, I'm just rehearsing some dance steps.

Iqbal Riza:
Oh...

Omer:
Look Iqbal, I am so sorry...

Iqbal Riza:
Stop!I don't want your pity. Does it look like I need pity?

Omer:
No, no, no you have far too much dignity.

Iqbal Riza:

Omer:

Omer:

Iqbal Riza:

Omer:

Iqbal Riza:

Omer:
Iqbal, why are you helping me? I destroyed your dream.

Iqbal Riza:
Yeah, you did, but that was yesterday. Today I turned a page in a new chapter in my life. I'm not sure being a performer was ever what I was really meant for. I'm more of a behind the scenes player, a puppeteer, a svengali if you will. As of today I'm your manager.
