It really don't matter if this guy opens my head, either. 'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance.

                                Fight Announcer: Your fans out there deserve a rematch!
                                Rocky: It ain't gonna be no rematch! Oh, come on! I had enough things in my face tonight! Adrian!
                                Fight Announcer: You heard him, Ladies and...
                                  Gazzo: Good. Now, tomorrow I want you to collect 400 from Del Rio. He's behind in his payment three weeks and I don't like it. When I tell you to break a guy's nose or thumbs as a "late payment notice", you do it!
                                  Rocky: [to Gazzo as he walks back towards the car] Hey, how do you spell "Del Rio"?
                                  Gazzo: [angrly] Open a dictionary, Rock!
                                  Rocky: What's a dictionary?
                                    Gazzo: [upset] How come you didn't break this guy's thumb like I told you?
                                    Rocky: Well, how did you know I didn't...
                                    Gazzo: You don't think I hear things? Did I give you a job this morning or didn't I, huh?
                                    Rocky: Yeah.
                                    Gazzo: So why didn't you break his thumb like I told you? When you don't do what I tell you to do, you make me look bad, Rock.
                                    Rocky: [trying to come up with an excuse] I figured... look, I figured if I break the guy's thumb, he gets laid off, right? Then he can't make...
                                    Gazzo: [cuts Rocky off] Yeah, well don't figure! Let me do the figurin', okay, Rock? From here on in, just let me do the figuring, you know? These guys think we're running some kind of charity or something. That they can get off light. From here on in, do what I tell you to do, because it's bad for my reputation! You understand? You got...
                                    [shoves Rocky]
                                    Gazzo: you got it, Rock?
                                    Rocky: [beat] I got it.
                                      Paulie: [talking about Adrian] You like her?
                                      Rocky: Sure, I like her.
                                      Paulie: What's the attraction?
                                      Rocky: I dunno... she fills gaps.
                                      Paulie: What's 'gaps'?
                                      Rocky: I dunno, she's got gaps, I got gaps, together we fill gaps.
                                      Paulie: Are you ballin' her?
                                      Rocky: Hey!
                                      [punches Paulie in the shoulder]
                                      Rocky: You don't talk dirty about your sister!
                                        Jergens: [reads the results] Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a split decision.
                                        [Jergens continues; indistinct]
                                        Rocky: ADRIAN!
                                        Adrian: Rocky!
                                        Jergens: ...for Creed!
                                          Fight Announcer: [interviews Rocky] It was chaos. Rocky, you went the distance. You went the 15 rounds. How do you feel?
                                          Rocky: All right!
                                          Fight Announcer: What were you thinking about when that buzzer sounded?
                                          Rocky: [yelling] Adrian!
                                            Adrian: Why do you wanna fight?
                                            Rocky: Because I can't sing or dance.
