I'm pretty sure that this line is still in scene 1. Charles is telling Oliver that he has been matched up to wrestle Oliver's brother Orlando. Now this wasn't like WWF; Charles wasn't going to slap Orlando over the head with a metal chair. Charles does say that he will put a major hurting on him though. Oliver says that he has been trying to dissuade Orlando on fighting but his brother is pretty damn stubborn overly ambitious and jealous of other people’s good qualities. That's where "envious emulator" comes in. Orlando is envious of people that are better than him and wants to or be like them or show himself to be better.
