(last lines) Mae Braddock: He won!


Jimmy Johnston: (to Gould) They ought to put your mouth in a circus.


Jim Braddock: Joe, did you come all this way just to talk about the weather? Joe Gould: Hey, maybe I was in the neighborhood! Maybe I wanted some fresh air! Jim Braddock: Joe, this is New Jersey. Joe Gould: Good point.


Mae Braddock: Every time you get hit, feels like I'm getting' hit too.


Reporter: Bob Johnson, Boston Globe. Two days ago, we ran a story about you giving your relief money back. Can you tell our readers why?

And I just thought I should return it.


(first lines)
Joe Gould: Attaboy! Keep him busy!


Jimmy Johnston: Right here. Editorial says this fight is good as murder, and everybody associated with it should be hauled into court and prosecuted afterwords. They say the paper's gettin' all sorts of letters from people saying you're their inspiration - like you saved their lives or somethin'. If you ask me, it's a lotta crap... but if I'm gonna promote this fight, I'm not gettin' hung out to dry if somethin' happens to you.
Joe Gould: (sarcastically) Ah, you're all heart.
Jimmy Johnston: My heart's for my family, Joe, my brains and my balls are for business and this is business. You got me?
Joe Gould: Gotcha.
