Daniel LaRusso: Doesn't that bother you?
Mr. Miyagi: Why should it?
Daniel LaRusso: People might believe it's true.
Mr. Miyagi: Daniel-san, lie become truth only if person want to believe it.
Daniel LaRusso: Is that another old Okinawan saying?
Mr. Miyagi: No. New Okinawan saying.
Daniel LaRusso: How new?
Mr. Miyagi: About ten seconds.
(After Daniel wins his first tournament...)
Daniel LaRusso: Hey, Mr. Miyagi, you know, I was thinking.
Mr. Miyagi: About what, Daniel-san?
Daniel LaRusso: That maybe we should have a strategy now, you know?
Mr. Miyagi: For what?
Daniel LaRusso: My future. My whole tournament career.
Mr. Miyagi: Miyagi already have one.
Daniel LaRusso: Really? What is it?
Mr. Miyagi: Early retirement.
Daniel LaRusso: You think I stand a chance at the tournament?
Mr. Miyagi: Not matter what Miyagi think. Miyagi not fighting.
Daniel LaRusso: I just don't know if I know enough karate.
Mr. Miyagi: Feeling correct.
Daniel LaRusso: Oh, you sure know how to make a guy feel confident.
Mr. Miyagi: Daniel-San, you trust quality what you know, not quantity.
Daniel LaRusso: You mean, there were times when you were scared to fight?
Mr. Miyagi: Ah, always scared. Miyagi hate fighting.
Daniel LaRusso: Yeah, but you like karate.
Mr. Miyagi: So?
Daniel LaRusso: So karate's fighting. You train to fight.
Mr. Miyagi: That what you think?
Daniel LaRusso: No.
Mr. Miyagi: Then why train?
Daniel LaRusso: So I won't have to fight.
Mr. Miyagi (laughs): Miyagi have hope for you.
(Some guys are drinking and using Mr. Miyagi's car as a bar table...)
Mr. Miyagi: Uh, excuse, please. Boy cold. Must leave. Kindly remove bottle.
Guy: Kindly do it yourself, Mr. Moto.
(Mr. Miyagi breaks three bottle in half with one move)
Daniel LaRusso: How did you do that? How did you do that?
Mr. Miyagi: Don't know. First time.
Daniel LaRusso: What was that you were doing on those stumps over there?
Mr. Miyagi: Called crane technique.
Daniel LaRusso: Does it work?
Mr. Miyagi: If do right, no can defense.
Daniel LaRusso: Could you teach me?
Mr. Miyagi: Ah, first learn stand, then learn fly.
Daniel LaRusso: Yeah...
Mr. Miyagi: Nature rule, Daniel-San. Not mine.
