Rocky (1976) Poster


Burt Young: Paulie



  • Adrian : Einstein flunked out of school, twice.

    Paulie : Is that so?

    Adrian : Yeah. Beethoven was deaf. Helen Keller was blind. I think Rocky's got a good chance.

  • 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 : Hey, you don't talk dirty about your sister.

    Paulie : Are you screwing my sister?

    Rocky : You see, that's why I can't connect you with Gazzo. You know that, Paulie. Because you got a big mouth. You know, you just talk too much.

  • [Paulie overhears Rocky and now he's angry and hurt] 

    Paulie : I don't want nothin' from you. I don't want nothin' from you. This ain't no charity case. Get outta my house.

    Adrian : It's not just your house.

    Paulie : [to Rocky]  You ain't no friend no more. Get outta my house, I just says.

    Adrian : Don't talk to him like that.

    Paulie : Both of you get out of my house.

    Rocky : Yo... It's cold outside, Paulie.

    [drops his hat; getting angrier, Paulie grabs his bat] 

    Paulie : I don't want you messin' her, and I don't raise you to go with this scum bum! Yeah? Come on! You wanna hit on me? Come on! I'll break both your arms so they don't work for ya!

    [Paulie smashed a lamp, then a dinner tray; Adrian screams] 

    Paulie : [Screaming]  That's right! I'm not good enough to meet with Gazzo...


    Paulie : - that's what I think of Gazzo! Now you're a big-shot fighter on your way up, you don't even throw a crumb to your friend Paulie! When I go out and get your meat every morning! You forgot that! Then I even give you my sister, too!

    Adrian : Only a pig would say that!

    Paulie : I'm a pig? A pig gives you the best?

    Paulie : [Smashes a coffee set]  You're such a loser! I don't get married because of you! You can't live by yourself! I put you two together! And you - don't you forget it! You owe me! You owe me!

    Adrian : [Freaks out]  WHAT DO I OWE YOU?

    Paulie : [cries]  You're supposed to be good to me.

    Adrian : WHAT DO I OWE YOU, PAULIE? WHAT DO I OWE YOU? I treat you good! I cook for you! I cleaned for you! I pick up your dirty clothes! I take care of ya, Paulie! I don't owe you nothin'! And you made me feel like a loser! I'M NOT A LOSER!

  • Paulie : I want you outta here instamatically.

  • Paulie : [about Adrian]  She's pushing thirty freaking years old, and if she don't wise up, she's gonna die an old maid.

    Rocky : I'm thirty myself!

  • Paulie : You're busted!

    Adrian : What?

    Paulie : You're not a virgin!

    [Adrian sobbing] 

    Paulie : You let him get into your pants! She's busted!

    [Rocky grabs Paulie; screams, then sobs] 

    Paulie : [cries]  I can't haul meat no more.

  • Adrian : Paulie, it's Thanksgiving. I got a turkey in the oven.

    Paulie : Oh... a turkey in the oven.

    [he takes the turkey out] 

    Paulie : You want the bird?

    [he throws it out the door] 

    Paulie : Go in the alley and eat the bird!

    Adrian : [disgusted]  Oh Paulie!

  • [after Rocky finishes pounding on the raw meat] 

    Paulie : You do that to Apollo Creed, they'll put us in jail for murder.

  • Paulie : [in the bathroom of a bar]  I'd like to kill the freaking guy who broke this mirror.

  • Paulie : [Trying to make Rocky laugh]  My sister really likes you!
