Marie: Do you have a reservation?
Paulie: Do I look like a freakin' Indian?

It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

You cast a big shadow.

Rocky Balboa: Come on Paulie, we're about to serve the special.
Paulie: Italian food made by Mexicans ain't that special.

Yo, how you doin'?

Rocky Balboa: Hey yo, champ. Aren't you a little scared?
Mason 'The Line' Dixon: I don't get scared.
Rocky Balboa: You know I think you try harder when your scared... That's when it's worked best for me.

[visiting his old house] ... I remember when she was standing there all nervous and shy with that small smile... And all I wanted her to do was trust me... And she did... She did...

Rocky Balboa: You know your kid sorta resembles ya. He's got that thick Irish hair, you know.
Marie: ...Yeah it's the other one.
Rocky Balboa: ...Yeah?
Marie: His father was from Jamaica.

Maybe you're looking out for your interests just a little bit more. I mean you shouldn't be asking people to come down here and pay the freight on something they paid, it still ain't good enough, I mean you think that's right? I mean maybe you're doing your job but why you gotta stop me from doing mine? Cause if you're willing to go through all the battling you got to go through to get where you want to get, who's got the right to stop you? I mean maybe some of you guys got something you never finished, something you really want to do, something you never said to someone, something... and you're told no, even after you paid your dues? Who's got the right to tell you that, who? Nobody! It's your right to listen to your gut, it ain't nobody's right to say no after you earned the right to be where you want to be and do what you want to do!... You know, the older I get the more things I gotta leave behind, that's life. The only thing I'm asking you guys to leave on the table... is what's right.

Rocky Balboa: Rights, like in that official piece of paper they wrote down the street there?
Boxing Commissioner: That's the Bill of Rights.
Rocky Balboa: Yeah, yeah. Bill of Rights. Don't it say something about going after what makes you happy?
Boxing Commissioner: No, that's the pursuit of happiness. But what's your point
Rocky Balboa: My point is I'm pursuing something and nobody looks too happy about it.

Rocky Balboa: Yo, don't I got some rights?
Boxing Commissioner: What rights do you think you're referring to?

We did it...
