The hospital Rocky and Apollo were taken to at the beginning is Pennsylvania Hospital. The nurse who asks Rocky for an autograph is wearing a button which reads "I'm proud to work at the nation's first hospital, celebrating 225 years in 1976." Pennsylvania Hospital was founded in 1751 and is located at 800 Spruce Street in Philadelphia.
His lungs he's gonna punch out.
Apollo: Now who is that? Al Capone?
Paulie: I don't sweat you.
