Do you play an instrument?
Yeah, I can sorta play a couple of chords on this organ I have at home. Hey, I'll tell you what, why don't you come to my house and teach me a new song?
Go to your house, huh? I suppose that's so you can show me your organ, right?
Why do you think I'm conning you? I tell you I really do have this big organ!

This is one of the funniest Stallone comedies there is, if nothing else for the fact that Stallone is so bad at it! Imagine an NYC cab driver turned country & western singer?
