I take it to mean he's still thinking "Fuck You". He was told, and mentioned to a couple other people, that this was a make it or break deal for him. He'd never get another shot. But he tried his hardest, actually put himself out there (he wasn't happy just doing stand up, but he was complacent), and he lost. But he knows he can do it, he knows he can be better, so fuck what the rest of the world is saying, he's going to keep on trying, if only for himself.
