Robby Keene: I'm sorry I lied to you, Mr. LaRusso. I just wanted to get back at him.
Daniel LaRusso: I know. But you're never gonna find balance that way. You can't let that bad blood change who you are. I'm not saying you need to like the guy. I know I never will, but... he--he is your father. And believe me, you're lucky to have one. You just got to try to remember, he's--he's not a monster. He's just a guy with a lot of demons. Mr. Miyagi always told me there's no such thing as a bad student, only a bad teacher. And your dad had the worst teacher there ever was. It sent him down a wrong path. But you don't have to go down that path. Do you understand? You don't have to ever become... him. Trust me. You let go of all that anger, and I guarantee you, no matter what happens tonight, you go home feeling great.
(Daniel and Robby are training in the forest...)
Daniel LaRusso: How'd you do on the tree?
Robby Keene: I did all the moves without falling.
Daniel LaRusso: Good. Now that you've mastered that, you're ready for the next challenge.
Robby Keene: What's that?
Daniel LaRusso: Finding the car. This place is like a maze.
(Daniel has taken Robby to train in the forest...)
Daniel LaRusso: You let me know when you can do all the kicks without falling.
Robby Keene: Where are you going?
Daniel LaRusso (with a phone in his hands): The Devils are playing the Islanders on the East Coast. I'm gonna move to a spot with better service.
Robby Keene: What happened to no distractions?
Daniel LaRusso: Hockey doesn't count!
Amanda LaRusso: Ah. Sam said no, huh?
Daniel LaRusso: Yeah, I don't get it. Man, she used to love karate.
Amanda LaRusso: Well, she's not your mini-me anymore. Can't dress her up and teach her tricks.
Daniel LaRusso: Yeah, but what about you?
Amanda LaRusso: Oh, I already know all your tricks.
Daniel LaRusso: Ha.
Amanda LaRusso: And let's try to remember what happened ten years ago when you and I hit the mat for a little karate. (looks at Anthony) Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.
Daniel LaRusso: I just want to ask you, do you know how to sweep?
Mr. Miyagi: Of course.
Daniel LaRusso: Would you mind showing me how? I'm not asking you to train me. I don't want you to train me. Just this one thing. Just this one thing. I'd be so appreciative. All you have to give me is one thing. That's it. Please, please, please you gotta do it. Be a pal.
Mr. Miyagi: You wait here. I be right back.
Daniel LaRusso: Where you going?
Mr. Miyagi: Just wait here.
(Mr. Miyagi returns with a broom...)
Mr. Miyagi: Daniel-san, you hold like this. First, left sweep...
Mr. Miyagi: Inside you. Same place your karate come from.
Daniel LaRusso: But my karate comes from you.
Mr. Miyagi: Only root karate come from Miyagi. Just like bonsai choose own way grow because the root is strong. You choose own way. Do karate same reason.
Daniel LaRusso: Yeah, but I do it your way.
Mr. Miyagi: Hai. One day, you do own way.
