John Kreese (to Johnny): I thought there was still hope for you. (starts to choke Johnny) This isn't how I wanted this to end.
(Daniel show up, kicking Kreese and saving Johnny)
Daniel LaRusso: You sent them to my house!? You came after my daughter. You wanted a fight, you son of a b*tch? You got one! (notices Robby on the floor) Robby?
John Kreese: I told you... this was inevitable. You can't keep up this "defense only" sh*t forever.
Daniel LaRusso: Good thing I don't have to.
John Kreese: Time for you and Miyagi to reunite!
(Daniel remembers what Chozen has told him...):
"If an enemy insists on war, then you take away their ability to wage it." - Chozen
(Daniel uses the pressure points to make Kreese's limb to go numb and is ready to finish him...)
Sam LaRusso: Dad! (Sam and Miguel show up)
Daniel LaRusso: You keep your Cobra Kais away from our kids!
John Kreese: It's a free country.
Johnny Lawrence: Not for you. Cobra Kai's gotta go. For good.
John Kreese: Why don't we settle this the old-fashioned way? Tournament. If we lose... I go. If you lose...
Johnny Lawrence: We won't lose.
Ali Mills: This is exactly the problem. You say one thing, you say the opposite. You both think there's only one side to the story.
Johnny Lawrence: I know. There's two.
Ali Mills: No, there's three. There's your side, and your side, and then there is the truth. And the truth is, you guys are more alike that you want to admit. Maybe you recognize parts of yourselves in each other, and maybe you don't always like what you see.
Johnny Lawrence: I guess it's possible some small part of all of this is my fault.
Daniel LaRusso: Yeah. Me too.
Ali Mills: Point Mills! Winner!
Daniel LaRusso: Well, since the match is over and we have a new champ, I guess... it's time for me to go.
Miguel Diaz: My name is Miguel Diaz. I was in the school fight. I was the one kicked off the second floor. You know, uh... I thought I was gonna be paralyzed. I relearned how to stand. I relearned how to walk. And I want the tournament to continue.
Councilperson Roberts: We are very happy for your recovery, young man. But I'm afraid you don't understand...
Sam LaRusso: Yes, he does. We're the ones getting hurt. We're the ones fighting. Our voices should matter the most. And we want a place where we can compete, fairly and safely.
Miguel Diaz: When I first moved here, I was bullied. I realized there's no escaping it. Some kid will always want to steal your lunch money, give you a wedgie, or a swirlie. Instead of burying your heads in the sand, pretending that bullying doesn't exist, or that you could get rid of it, you need to teach kids how to defend themselves.
Sam LaRusso: Physically and mentally. Because sometimes the scars you can't see are the ones that hurt the most.
Miguel Diaz: Karate is about discipline. It's about inner strength. It's about confidence. Lessons you can use for the rest of your life. Look, I don't know where I would be today, or who I would be today, if it wasn't for my sensei. We don't need this tournament to do cool kicks or sell tickets, we need it to show the bullies of the world that we're not afraid. It's called the "All Valley" because it's for everyone, to give everyone the chance to show what they can do, to fight, to become a champion. And we deserve that chance.
(Sam and Miguel come across Demetri and Yasmine kissing...)
Sam LaRusso: Yasmine?
Demetri Conners: Hey. Um... We were just, uh...
Yasmine: Doing study work.
Demetri Conners: Yup.
Sam LaRusso: So you two are...
Yasmine: What? Ew. Ew! No. Like I would ever date this freak. (leaves)
Demetri Conners: Whatever, Cruella. Why don't you go kill a bunch of dalmatians? I am 101% in love!
Sam LaRusso: I can't believe that just happened!
Miguel Diaz: Yeah, I guess, uh... love conquers all.
Sam LaRusso: I guess it does.
Daniel LaRusso: I know it's been a while since our last class. After the fight at the school, I wasn't sure Miyagi-Do should stay open. But things have gotten worse since we shut down. That's why we're back. The only way to stop Cobra Kai is if we all work together. But always remember, the reason we learn karate is...
Johnny Lawrence: To show the world that you're not a bunch of pansy-a$$ nerds! We're gonna show 'em that you're tough! Because eagles don't get sh*t on. They're the ones that do the sh*tting. Just don't forget, being a badass doesn't mean being an a**hole. The goal isn't to hurt other kids. The goal is to...
John Kreese: Win at all costs. Those we thought to be our allies have turned against us. Now our enemies are attacking us from all sides. There is no turning back. Now is the time to show them...
Daniel LaRusso: Forgiveness. Compassion. Mr. Miyagi used to say if you're looking for revenge, you could start by digging two graves. He was right. If you have hate in your heart, then you've already lost. I know it's not easy, but you have to do whatever you can...
Johnny Lawrence: To beat the living crap out of 'em. Don't let 'em push you around. You gotta swoop down like an eagle, grab 'em with your claws, and sink your fangs into 'em. But I don't ever want you to start the fight. I just want you to...
John Kreese: Finish it. For good. Do I make myself clear?
Hawk: The truth is, you bailed on us long before that fight happened. You got soft. And we paid the price.
Johnny Lawrence: You listen up. When you came to my dojo, you were softer than a baby's a$$. I made you what you are, not Kreese. He doesn't give a sh*t about you. About any of you. If you wanna keep whining about the past like a bunch of p*ssies, fine. We can play that game. Wanna stick with Kreese? Go ahead. Don't say I didn't warn you when your life ends up in the sh*tter. Or you could sack up and join my dojo. Havenhurst and Magnolia, tomorrow at 4:00. If you wanna save yourselves, train the right way... you better be there. And don't be late!
(Johnny is looking at rental places to have the new dojo in...)
Johnny Lawrence: You're telling me this place is free?
Johnny Lawrence: Totally free, no strings attached?
Man: Yeah, it's free.
Johnny Lawrence: So I can do karate here? All the way from that trash can all the way to that tree?
Man: You can do whatever you want. It's a public park. Can I get back to my family now?
Daniel LaRusso: Looks like our ducks are finally in a row. The dealership's back on its feet, Kreese is out of our lives. How shall we celebrate?
Amanda LaRusso: I was thinking maybe, like, a banner that says "I told you so."
Daniel LaRusso: Uh-huh. All right. Go ahead. Get it out of your system. Come on...
Amanda LaRusso: I don't know, babe. All I'm saying is if I was around in '84. You may not have as many stories to tell.
Daniel LaRusso: Uh-huh.
Amanda LaRusso: I beat Cobra Kai in, what? One afternoon.
(Johnny is writing a Facebook message to Ali. She asked what he's been up to...)
Johnny Lawrence: "Ali. You're right. It's crazy how things change. For a long time, I didn't have much direction in my life. But then, things got better. I met a kid who needed some help. So I got back into karate, became a sensei. There were ups and downs. I even gave up for a while. But I can't give up anymore. I have a long way to go to be a better man, a better father, a better teacher. But I can make a difference in these kids' lives. It's a tough world out there, and I can help them be ready for it. That's what I've been up to. That's who I am. I'm a sensei." Nah, too long.
(Deletes the message and writes: "Not much, u?")
Tory Nichols: I'm sorry. I know that I should've come to see you. I just didn't know how to help.
Miguel Diaz: So you did nothing.
Tory Nichols: I felt guilty about everything. But we're doing everything we can to get back at Miyagi-Do for what they did to you. As Sensei Kreese says, "If one of us gets hurt, we all get hurt."
Miguel Diaz: Nobody else got hurt, Tory. I'm the one in a wheelchair.
Tory Nichols: Yeah, I just meant...
Miguel Diaz: I know what you meant. I never cared about Miyagi-Do or Kreese, I cared about us.
