Yesterday (III) (2019)
Joel Fry: Rocky
Ellie Appleton : [after Jack sings Yesterday to Ellie and his friends] What the hell was that?
Jack Malik : Yesterday.
Carol : That was one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.
Rocky : Yeah. I mean, it's a bit-bit sloppy, but it's sweet.
Ellie Appleton : When did you write that?
Jack Malik : I didn't write it. Paul McCartney wrote it, The Beatles.
Carol : Who?
Jack Malik : The Beatles.
Carol : The what?
Jack Malik : John, Paul, George and Ringo, The Beatles.
Rocky : Which beetles is this? The insect beetles or the car Beetles?
Jack Malik : The pop group Beatles.
[addressing the Wembley Stadium crowd; referring to the giant screen on the stadium showing Ellie]
Jack Malik : This is Ellie. And when I had no fans, Ellie was my only fan. The only person in the world who believed in me. And that's why, tonight, I asked Ed if I could come on and play, because I want to tell her, and you, what I've done. Darn it, Ellie, I've been untrue. All the songs I've sung tonight were really written and performed by four men called John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. The Beatles. They were the real geniuses. Me, I'm just a sort of go-between to, well, get their astonishing stuff into the world. And, uh, I passed their amazing work off as my own, so I could look like I was amazing too.
[the crowd starts jeering]
Jack Malik : I want you all to know that I'm not going to take any money for this work that isn't mine. So you can have all the songs for free. Rocky, do it.
Rocky : Right. Here goes.
[he upload the songs for free to the internet]
Jack Malik : They're being released, for free, online now. And I'd love to not take any more praise for it. So, um, I'm so sorry.
