Sanji“Hey, big guy! Rather than this moss-head swordsman... take my life instead!”

Zoro and Sanji didn't really like each other at the beginning. They fought and quarreled a lot, were annoyed by just each others personalities. But with time they grew closer and although they still don't agree in many things, they care about each other, even if they wouldn't say that out loud.

East Blue Saga

Baratie Arc

This is the arc, where Zoro and Sanji meet for the first time, though they don't share a longer conversation yet.

Sanji, back then, was an assistant chef in the Baratie, an ocean-going restaurant. Luffy, Zoro, Nami and Usopp needed to stay there for a while, because of an accidental, extensive damage Luffy caused to the resturant's ship.

After some time there, Zoro and Sanji share their first, short conversation. Zoro states that his goal is Grand Line too from now on, since he just learned that Hawk Eyes - the strongest swordsman in the world - is there too (and Zoro aspires to become the strongest swordsman in the world himself). Sanji comments it saying that Luffy and his crew are a bunch of morons, which probably are the ones dying first. Zoro says that he's right, but he didn't have to say the part about 'morons'. He says that from the time he decided to become the strongest swordsman in the world his life and death doesn't really matter to him and that he himself is the only person who can call him a moron. Then their conversation ends.

Soon afterwards the Baratie is attacked by Don Krieg's crew, which was also chased by Hawk Eyes - the same person Zoro wanted to find and take him on. After Zoro is beaten by Hawk Eyes and lands in the sea, Sanji recalls his and Zoro's previous conversation. Sanji calls Zoro a 'shitty idiot' in his thoughts, claiming that 'he totally lost his mind and he could just give up his dreams, he didn't have to die for them'.
