The robotic in query is SICO, created by Worldwide Robotics Inc. Within the movie, Rocky presents the robotic to his brother-in-law Paulie. Paulie resents the present, however later within the movie appears to heat to its presence, notably after giving the robotic an overhaul and a brand new (and feminine) voice.
So whereas Stallone’s dismissal of the robotic might maybe be interpreted as just a few dry humor on the director, author, and star’s half, Stallone took it a step additional in answering one other query.
“Wow! Cool! Does it broaden on the connection between Paulie and his robotic?” (Presumably this remark was meant as a joke, due to an emoji on the finish of it…and presumably they didn’t see the reply to the earlier robot-centric remark).
However Stallone’s response ought to ship chills down the spines of robotic lovers in all places.
“The robotic goes to the junkyard. No extra robotic.”
