FADE IN:

INT- PHILADELPHIA, ROCKY's home.

We see Rocky sitting on a chair in his room, he is watching a video of one of his old fights.

(Some one knocks on the door)

Rocky:

Come in.

(The person enters...It's Rocky Jr. his son.)

Rocky:

Hey! Have a seat.

Rocky Jr.

Hi, pap.

(He walks over to the chair in front of his father)

Rocky:

So...How you doing these days?

Rocky Jr. :

Good...Good...

I need to talk to you 'bout something important.

(Rocky reaches for the remote control, that is located on a small table next to him, and shuts the tv off.)

Rocky:

What is it, son?

Rocky Jr. Pauses for a couple of seconds.

Rocky Jr. :

Dad, I...

Rocky:

What...

(He reaches over to Rocky Jr.)

Rocky:

Tell me...never be afraid, especially of your own dad.

Rocky Jr. :

Well...

(He stops talking and looks around the room)

Rocky Jr. :

I'll tell you later.

(He gets up and makes his way outside the room, Rocky reaches for his arm and pushes him back into the room)

Rocky:

Your not leaving until you tell me.

(Rocky Jr. walked back to the chair.)

Rocky Jr. :

K, pap...I'll tell you.

Rocky:

Good..now go on.

Rocky Jr. :

Well...I want to be a fighter dad.

(Rocky looks at his son in disbelief)

Rocky:

Fighter? You mean boxing?

Rocky Jr.

(Hesitating):

Yes..I do, I want to be a boxer, just like yo-

Rocky:

Forget about it.

Rocky Jr. :

Dad, why? You did it, many people did it, why not me?

Rocky:

Don't...don't ever talk to me about that again.

(Rocky Jr. looks at his dad in sadness and unhappiness)

Rocky Jr. :

Fine...I'll do it anyway.

(Rocky stares at Rocky Jr. in disgust)

Rocky

(angrily):

ANYWAY!...Do it ANYWAY! I'M YOUR DAD, YOU DO WHAT I TELL YOU!!

Rocky Jr. :

But why, I want to...I have already started pract-

(Rocky Jr. bit his lip, knowing he should not have said that)

Rocky

(Calming down):

You've started practicing eh?

(Rocky Jr. nodded)

Rocky:

For how long?

(He pointed out two fingers)

Rocky:

Two? Two weeks or months...or years?

Rocky Jr. :

Two days.

(Rocky grinned)

Rocky:

What made you interested in boxing.

Rocky Jr. :

I saw some of your video's last week, and saw some cool fights on television.

Rocky:

My videos?

(He grins again)

Rocky:

I kicked serious butt.

Rocky Jr.

(Laughing):

Yes, I saw.

I want to be you like you.

Rocky:

Then be like me.

(Rocky Jr. looked happily at Rocky)

Rocky Jr. :

Thanks pap, I have already got a membership at a gym.

And will soon be a champion just as you where.

Rocky:

Just remember...

(Beat)

Before you become a champion...you have to be a contender.
