The clip truth about the band from The Blues Brothers (1980) with John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd
We'll put the band back together, we do a few gigs...
we get some bread. Bang
five thousand bucks!
Well, getting the band back together might not be that easy.
What are you talking about?
They all took straight jobs.
Yeah? So you know where they are.
You said you were keeping in touch with them.
I got a couple of leads, a few phone numbers.
But, I mean, how many of them visited or even wrote you?
They're not the kind of guys who write letters.
You were outside. I was inside.
You were supposed to keep in touch with the band.
I kept asking you if we were gonna play again.
What was I gonna do, take away your only hope?
Take away the very thing that kept you going in there?
I took the liberty of bullshitting you. Okay?
You lied to me.
It wasn't lies. It was just bullshit.
