Come on, Spider!
When Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) is knocked down during the fight, and on the verge of defeat, you can audibly hear Rocky's manager and trainer, Mickey (Burgess Meredith's voice on an ADR dub) yelling to Rocky, "Stay down!" as he does not want to see Rocky take a further beating. However, you can see Rocky's corner man, Mike (Jimmy Gambina), mouthing "Get up!"
Butkus the dog is credited as "Butkus Stallone".
