Scene From Ryan Coogler's Creed (2015)
Outside Rocky Balboa's restaurant, before an open van.
I told you before, I just don't want to do it, kid.
That's cool, but maybe you could just give me some drills.
Yeah, things I could do on my own.
You don't stop, do you. You're like a woodpecker. My God. (After a beat.)
All right, I got a few. But that's it, okay?
Rocky Balboa: (Sits down to write on a bond paper.)
Five rounds of jumping rope... Three rounds on each of the bags... When you get to the heavy bag, just don't keep throwing your hands because you can hurt them. It's also about using your legs, all right? And then five rounds of ... shadow...
There's a "W." Boxing.
And that's it. (After a beat.)
Rocky Balboa: (Hands Creed the paper.)
There you go.
That's perfect. (Takes a photo of the paper with his phone.)
Good luck with that.
All right, got it. Hold that real quick. (Hands Rocky both paper and phone. Gets the bag of food purchases from Rocky's van and hands it to the waiting assistant while Rocky looks on. He takes back the phone but not the paper from Rocky.)
All right, man. (He starts walking away.)
Wait, you don't want this?
Adonis Creed: (Holds up the phone as he walks.)
I got it right here.
What if you lose that thing or it breaks?
It's already up in the cloud.
Rocky Balboa: (Looks up, bewildered.)
What cloud? What cloud?
