Rocky drops his coat on the floor. He puts on a pair of

glasses. He crosses to a small turtle bowl... He lifts the

creatures.

ROCKY:

...Look who's home.

Rocky starts to boil a pan of water on his hot plate, then

places an old 45 RPM record on a battered phonograph. The

record is a tune, "ALL IN THE GAME."

... As the CRACKLING MUSIC BEGINS, Rocky picks up his

hairbrush. Using it like a microphone, he mimes to the

record. He assumes the posture of a famous singer crooning

to thousands of adoring fans... He then switches into a

bullish fighting stance and throws several punches.

The water boils. Rocky soaks his badly-swollen hands.

EXT. SUNRISE OF PHILADELPHIA SKYLINE - DAWN

We SEE the jagged skyline, highlighted by the towering

figure of William Penn that rises above the dawn haze as it

sits majestically above City Hall...

EXT. DOCKS - EARLY MORNING

Rocky is walking along the waterfront... He has a bandaid

over one eye. He looks at the rugged stevedores going about

their business... He stuffs his hands in his cheap wool

jacket and approaches a ship being unloaded.

Rocky passes two thick Mafia types leaning against a parked

car. These men look like blood drinkers.

MAFIA #1

Yo, Rock -- How's your Boss?

ROCKY:

Real good.

MAFIA #2

Fightin' again?

ROCKY:

Yeah, here an' there.

MAFIA #1

Mebbe we make sum money

togather soon... Give ya boss

my best.

Rocky shrugs and moves away... He nears a heavy man working

the crane. The heavy man looks frightened... He stops the

crane and hurries into the ship's hole. Rocky dashes up the

gangplank.
