Rodolpho embarrasses Eddie because all he does on the waterfront is sing, and that the workers have taken to calling him "Canary."

He alludes to the fact that Rodolpho is like a "chorus girl."

I have to change this answer, on page 49, Eddie says that Rodolpho should work in a dress store or as a cook.
