I ain't no talkin' building, Rocky!


Martin: You got everything money can buy, except what it can't. Its pride. Pride is what got your ass out here, and losing is what brought ya back. But people like you, they need to be tested. They need a challenge.
Mason 'The Line' Dixon: But you know that ain't never gonna happen. There ain't anybody out there, Martin.
Martin: There's always somebody out there. Always. And when that time comes and you find something standing in front of you, something that ain't running and ain't backing up and is hitting on you and you're too damn tired to breathe. You find that situation on you. That's good, 'cause that's baptism under fire! Oh, you get through that and you find the only kind of respect that matters in this world, self-respect.

[repeated line] Yo, how you doin'?

[visiting his old house as he thinks about Adrian] 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...

I'll leave it on the steps... Steps.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, 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! Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that! I'm always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You're my son, you're my blood. You're the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain't gonna have a life.

I stopped thinking the way other people think a long time ago, you gotta think like you think.

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 what you wanna be and do what you wanna do.

I think every guy should at one time try to name an animal or something.

I feel like a kangaroo... all this stuff in my pocket.

You know, a lot of people come to Las Vegas to lose. I didn't.

Hey don't hit me, I'm brittle.

What's so crazy about standing toe-to-toe with someone saying "I am"?

You know, I could have done nothing without you. Yo Adrian, we did it... we did it.

What an ugly dog!
