Yeah. But this is it, mate.

This is it.

- Ooh! I'd better get going.

- Thank you, Maestro.

You all ready?

All right, fantastic.

Written and conducted

by Thomas Mcalpine.

Most you folks know the Mcalpines

from Harmony Station,

especially Coach George Mcalpine,

who has led our footy team

to three championships!

In fact, I think I see

Coach Mcalpine here.

George, how's the AZ's looking?

Are we looking forward

to another trophy this year?

It's just...

it's just kind of slowly

going downhill.

Well, that, um,

concludes our presentation

here at Willyama High School.

Thank you very, very much

for coming.

It's obviously not ready yet.

Your performance

was a little bit rough.

But look on the bright side...

this composition

is one of your best.

And you've got three weeks

to make it perfect.

Yeah, that's not enough time.

Especially with these musicians.

I mean, they can't play

to save their lives.

It's like everything I ever wanted

is right there in front of me,

and I can't reach out and get it.

Look, you've got three weeks.

Why don't you go to your father,

see if you can go to a larger town

and get better, more experienced,


- My father?

- Yeah, your father.

No, my father would never...

Holy dooley!

I'm late for the game!

Thanks, Maestro!




Come late, you don't play.

- Next time.

- Next time.

It's time.

How did you sneak up on me

in a wheelchair?

Stealth mode.

I turn off the engine

and use my hands, old-school style.

But it's time.

Oh, mate. Come on, look.

Quote what's there, word for word,

or it doesn't count.

It's good.

Mate, I'm asking her out,

I'm not casting a spell on her.

Yeah, you're casting a spell...

you're casting a spell of love.

Go on. You lost the race,
