Rocky Balboa

  • [to Adrian] I was wonderin' if, uh, you wouldn't mind marryin' me very much.
  • Do you like having a good time? Then you need-a-good-watch!
  • [chasing a chicken] I feel like a Kentucky Fried idiot.
  • [Adrian asks about Rocky's eyesight] I see fine. I see like a Beagle, or something.
  • Reporter to Rocky in the hospital: "Rocky, do you think you've suffered brain damage?" Rocky:"I don't see any."

Mickey Goldmill

  • You're gonna eat lightnin'; you're gonna crap thunder.
  • Hey Rock. It's three in the morning. I went up to your house there and they told me you was here. It's a 3:00am kid. You know that Adrian, she's a good girl. Me, you know I'm sorry for both of ya. There's nothing I can do about it. Except uh I wanna tell you this once and then uh I ain't gonna say it again. But Rock you got another shot. This is the second shot. At uh I don't know the biggest title in the world, and you're gonna be swappin' punches with, with the most dangerous fighter in the world. And just in case you know your brain ain't workin' so good. All this happens pretty soon and you ain't ready. You know you're no where near in shape. So I say for God's sake. Why don't you stand up and fight this guy HARD? Like you done before that was beautiful! But don't lay down like this! Like uh I don't know like some kind of mongrel or something. Cause he's gonna kick your face in pieces! That's right! This guy doesn't just wanna win you know, he wants to bury ya, he wants to humiliate ya, he wants to prove to the whole world that you was nothin but some kind of freak the first time out. He said you were a one time lucky bum! Well now I don't wanna get mad in a biblical place like this. But I think you're a hell of a lot more than that kid! A hell of a lot! But now wait a minute if you wanna blow this thing if you wanna blow it then damn it I'm gonna blow it with ya. If you wanna stay here I'll stay with ya. I stay with ya. I'll stay and pray. What do I got to lose?
  • What're we waitin' for? (when Adrian recovers and asks Rocky to win the fight against Apollo)

Adrian

  • There's one thing I want you to do for me. Win, win!

Others

  • Duke: He's all wrong for us, baby. I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man kept coming after you. Now we don't need no man like that in our lives.
  • Duke: [to Apollo] You're the Man. You're number one. The Champ, the best of all time. Girls love you - Men, old people love you. Young people love you. You're the best. You're the Man, and he's yours. He's yours, he's yours. This bum shouldn't be in the same ring with you. I want you to show him who you are tonight. Show him who you are tonight. Stick him!

Dialogue

Rocky: Is he serious?

Paulie: How's your face?
Rocky: I don't know...how's it look?
Paulie: I wouldn't want it.

Father Carmine: Rocky Balboa, do you take Adrian Ponino to be your lawfully wedded wife?
Rocky: Yeah. Absolutely. Yes.
Father Carmine: Adrian Ponino, do you take Rocky Balboa to be your lawfully wedded husband?
Adrian: I do.
Rocky: Thanks.
Father Carmine: Then by the powers vested in me by the State of Pennsylvania, I now prononce you man & wife. You may kiss the bride now.
Rocky: I gotta take this off.
[Rocky draws Adrian's veil back; kisses her]
Father Carmine: Go in peace and God bless you.
Rocky: Thanks, Father. You done real good. I'm proud of you. Okay. Things are gonna be great.

Gazo: How's about investing in condominiums? It's safe.
Rocky: Condominiums?
Gazo: Yeah, condominiums.
Rocky: I never use 'em.

Rocky: You know, I never knew you were so light, you know.
Adrian: No?
Rocky: No, if I did I would've carried you everywhere.

Adrian: We really don't need a car.
Rocky: Oh, come on, Adrian. I'm gonna be doing commercials. Now, I can afford this, you know? No problem.
Adrian: Do you know how to drive?
Rocky: Do I know how to drive?
Adrian: Do you know how to drive?
Rocky: I'm one of the greats. Are you kidding? C'mon, I'll drive you. Let me put you inside the car. This will just be like Cinderella and the pumpkin, you know?
Adrian: Do you know how to drive?
Rocky: Do I know how to drive? I drive airplanes and bulldozers. I'll drive you crazy if you give me a chance. You know what I mean?

Employment Manager: Do you have a criminal record?
Rocky: Nothin' worth braggin' about.

Employment Manager: Can I be honest? No one's going to offer you an office job. There's too much competition. Why don't you fight? I read somewhere you're a very good fighter.
Rocky: Yeah, well. Was ya ever punched in the face 500 times a night? It stings after a while, ya know.

Apollo: [reading fan mail] Mary Anne, you listen to this. "You didn't beat nobody and anybody who knows boxing knows the fight was fixed." This one came from London. "You call yourself the champ? You're a fake! The fight was a fake. Go kill yourself!"
Mary Anne Creed: Wouldn't you rather play with the children than read hate mail?
Apollo: "How much did you get to carry that bum for 15 rounds? You are a disgrace to your people."
Mary Anne Creed: Why can't you ignore it?
Apollo: Are you serious?

Apollo: Do you think I beat him the last time?
Duke: You got the decision.
Apollo: Man I won! But I didn't beat him!

Mickey: [after slapping Rocky in the face] Now you didn't even see that comin', did ya? And that's comin' from a broken down punk like me. What... what do ya think the champ would do to ya?
Rocky: Hurt me bad I guess...
Mickey: Na, he'd hurt ya permanent. Permanent!

Mickey: Left handed fighters they're the worst. They try to come in there with that big left. Right's no damn good. They ought to outlaw southpaws!
Rocky: Why didn't you tell me that before?
Mickey: I didn't want to hurt your feelings.

Rocky: [noticing Mickey's hearing aid] What's that in your ear there?
Mickey: What it is, is I hear stupid things better.

Mickey: Why do you have to wear that stinkin' sweatsuit?
Rocky: It brings me luck, you know?
Mickey: Brings you luck. I'll tell you what it brings - it brings FLIES! Now here's what I want you to do - I want you to chase this little chicken.
Rocky: Hey yo, Mick, what do I got to chase a chicken for?
Mickey: First, because I said so. And second, is because chicken-chasing is how we used to train back in the old days. If you can catch this thing, you can catch greased lighting.
Rocky: Well, I'll do it if you say so, but it ain't very mature.
Mickey: Yeah, well NEITHER ARE YOU, very mature!

Rocky: [punching a heavy bag] Three, four.
Mickey: Now remember I want 500 hard ones go!
Rocky: Where was I, seven or eight?

Mickey: [picks up a bucket] Here, why don't you carry this? 'Cause I liked you a lot better when you was carryin' spit.
Rocky: Yeah?
Mickey: Yeah. 'Cause the way you're trainin', you're gonna end up pumping gas in Jersey somewhere!
Rocky: I think I'm gonna go take a shower.
Mickey: It's a good idea. Why don't you go soak your head? Soak it a lot.

Mickey: Who the hell is that?
Rocky: Avon lady.

Paulie: [at a press conference] We're gonna punch his lungs out!
Apollo: Now who's that? Al Capone?

Reporter: Rocky your pay for the fight will be very substantial. What will you do with the money?
Rocky: Well the first thing I gotta do is I gotta pay the rent. And then I made this list on our way over here. I'd like to buy a couple hats, a motorcycle, a couple quarts of perfume for Adrian she likes to smell good. And some muppet toys you know, Ernie, Big Bird. And the frog what's his name? Kermit?
Mickey: Yeah.
Rocky: And I thought maybe a statue for the church and a snow cone machine for you Paulie. You like snow cones right?
Reporter: Rock, you got anything derogatory to say about the champ?
Rocky: Derogatory? Yeah. He's great.

Adrian: There's one thing I want you to do for me.
Rocky: What's that?
Adrian: Win. Win!

Bill Baldwin: This place is certanly packed with Rocky's people. I've never seen so many Italians in my whole life!
Stu Nahan: Hey you said that. I didn't say that.

Rocky: It's Apollo.
Mickey: Who were you expecting?
Rocky Balboa: I was hoping he wouldn't show.

Rocky: [after round 1 of the rematch with Creed] I can't believe it.
Mickey: What?
Rocky: He broke my nose again.

Duke: [after round 1 of rematch with Balboa who is fighting right handed] Alright, did the switching bother ya?
Apollo: Nothin' bothered me man, nothin' bothered me.
Duke: Well then you should of had 'em! Now don't let up on this man. This man is dangerous. This man is DANGEROUS!
Apollo: This man is dangerous... I'm dangerous! I'm dangerous!

Referee: One! Two!
Bill Baldwin: If he gets up, Creed will regain the title! If neither of them gets up, it's a draw and Creed will win the title automatically! The count...

Bill Baldwin: He made it at the last second! Rocky Balboa has shocked the world! He is the new heavyweight champion of the world!
Mickey: TWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK! (He races to Balboa hugging him, and his crew) (a bell clangs eight times)

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen! In a stunning upset, scoring the win by a knockout, the new Heavyweight Champion of the World...
Rocky: You're great.
Ring Announcer: ROCKY BALBOA!
[Cheering grows louder]
Apollo: Good luck.

Rocky: [on the microphone] Excuse me. I can't believe this has happened. I can't. And I just wanna say thanks to Apollo for fighting me. Apollo. I wanna thank Mickey, for training me.
Fan: We love ya, Rock!
Rocky: Yea, I love yous too. I just also wanna thank God. Except for my kid bein' born, this is the greatest night in the history of my life. I just wanna say one thing to my wife who's home: YO, ADRIAN! I DID IT!
Adrian: I love you. I love you.
