Paulie: You’re wrong! Friends owe!
Rocky Balboa: Friends don’t owe! They do because the wanna do.
Paulie: Shut your freakin’ mouth. You been keepin’ me down!
Rocky Balboa: Down? You know, you’re like a crazy brother to me, Paulie, you really are. So I’m gonna tell ya something and I want you to listen because I really mean this. You ain’t down. And you ain’t even a loser. You’re just a jealous, lazy bum.
Paulie: Alright, I’m gonna break your freakin’ mouth up! I’m gonna break your freakin’ mouth up!
[Paulie throws punches at Rocky and Rocky blocks them]
Paulie: [exhausted] Can I have a job?
Rocky Balboa: All you had to do was ask.
