TIM TEBOW's LEFT ARM - ::R2-D2 like beeping::
TIM TEBOW - There's nothing wrong, Left Arm. I'm just setting a new course.
TT-LA - Bloop?
TIM TEBOW - We're not going to party or relax with the others this offseason.
TT-LA - Bleep?!?!?!?
TIM TEBOW - We're going to the Dove Valley System.
Unlike Luke Skywalker, TIM doesn't have to look hard to find his Guru, John ELWAYODA.
ELWAYODA is looking away from TIM.
ELWAYODA - I cannot teach him. The boy has no patience in the pocket.
SPIRIT OF YOUNG ELWAY - He will learn patience.
ELWAYODA - Hmmm. Much passion in him.
SPIRIT OF YOUNG ELWAY - Was I any different?
ELWAYODA - Hah! He is not ready.
TIM TEBOW - Elwayoda! I'm ready! I... I can be a Quarterback.
Young Elway, tell him I'm ready!
ELWAYODA - Ready are you? What know you of ready?
For 16 years did I play Quarterback professionally.
My own counsel I will keep on who is to be trained.
A Quarterback must have the deepest commitment,
the most serious mind.
This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he
looked away...to lower his shoulder, to escape the pocket.
Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was
Running! Heh. Contact! Heh. A Quarterback craves not
(turning to Tim)
You are reckless!
SPIRIT OF YOUNG ELWAY - So was I, if you'll remember.
ELWAYODA - He is too old. Yes, too old to begin the training.
TIM TEBOW - But I've learned so much!
ELWAYODA turns his piercing gaze on Tim, as though the Quarterback Master's
eyes could somehow determine how much the boy had learned. After a long moment,
the great Quarterback turns toward where he alone sees the SPIRIT OF YOUNG ELWAY.
ELWAYODA - (sighs) Will he finish what he begins?
TIM TEBOW - I won't fail you. I'm not afriad.
ELWAYODA turns slowly toward him.
ELWAYODA - Oh, you will be. You will be.
