The Rocky series:

“This is the land of opportunity, right? So, Apollo Creed on January 31st gives a local underdog fighter an opportunity. A snow white underdog and I’m going to put his face on this poster with me. And I’ll tell you why. Because I’m sentimental.”

“Who discovered America? An Italian right? What would be better than to get it on with one of his descendants.”

“Apollo Creed meets the Italian Stallion. It sounds like a damn monster movie.”

(After the first fight with Rocky)

“Stallion! Stallion! You got a gold skull, Stallion. You’re lucky. So lucky. What you did was a miracle, you’re the luckiest man on the face of the earth. I want you to know that Stallion. Nobody goes the distance with me. Get up out of that chair chump. And let’s finish this fight now!”

(Talking about Rocky in Rocky II)

“Man, I won but I didn’t beat him!”

(Talking to Rocky in Rocky III)

“When you beat me I hurt everywhere and I didn’t want to from no one or nobody. Not even my kids. Every fighter knows that hurt and we get sick inside trying to live with it. Don’t back off now, get right with yourself or you’ll be sorry you didn’t.”

(Sparring with Rocky in Rocky III)

“There is no tomorrow! There is no tomorrow!”

“Eye of the Tiger!”

(Rocky IV)

“We’re born with a killer instinct. That you just can’t turn off and on like some radio. We have to be right in the middle of the action. Because we’re warriors. And without some challenge, without some war to fight then the warrior might as well be dead.”
