Apollo: Ain't gonna be no rematch. Ain't gonna be no rematch.
Rocky: Don't want one.
Reporter: Why did you agree to fight a man who has virtually no chance of winning?
Apollo: Look, if history proves one thing, American history proves that everybody's got a chance to win. Didn't you guys ever hear of Valley Forge or Bunker Hill?
Apollo: What do you think about Billy Snow?
Apollo: How 'bout Big Chuck Smith? Yeah.
Duke: Nah. He's too old and dull. Hey, Bobby Judd. He's a good boy.
Apollo: No, I don't feel any heat from that name.
Jergens: Joe Zach's a good prospect. Exactly what are you looking for, Apollo?
Apollo: This is what I'm looking for. 'The Italian Stallion.'
Jergens: Rocky Balboa? Never heard of him.
Apollo: Look, it's the name, man. 'The Italian Stallion.' The media'll eat it up. Now who discovered America? An Italian, right? What would be better than to get it on with one of his descendants?
Duke: He's a southpaw. I don't want you messing around with southpaws. They do everything backwards.
Apollo: Southpaw, nothin'. I'll drop him in three. "Apollo Creed Meets the Italian Stallion." Sounds like a damn monster movie.
