Heartwarming: Rocky V

  • When Rocky is knocked down by Tommy, he sees a vision Mickey cheering him on:
    "Get up you son of a bitch...'cause Mickey loves ya!"
    • In the director's cut of the movie, it was actually Mickey's ghost capping off his encouragement with "COME ON, KID! Beat the shit outta him."
  • The alternate ending, where Rocky extends a forgiving hand to Tommy after beating him, and Tommy accepts it.
  • While we're glad Rocky's saga ultimately didn't end on such a down note, the credits roll set to Elton John's "The Measure of a Man" can definitely inspire some Manly Tears.
