(Johnny sneeks up to hospital to visit Miguel...)
Johnny Lawrence (to Miguel): Hey, buddy. Sorry I haven't been here. Your mom hasn't wanted me around. Can't blame her. I thought I was helping you. You were learning so fast, getting so strong. But I failed you. I'm so sorry. I don't know if you can hear me, kid. But you got it in you to pull through. You just gotta keep fighting. Never give up. You can do this. I know you can.
Member of school board: What Counselor Blatt is trying to say is no more karate. Zero tolerance from now on.
Daniel LaRusso: Wait. You don't need to turn this into some kind of karate Footloose! Karate is not the problem! When I went to school here, I was bullied, and karate saved me.
Parent: Bullsh*t! I heard you were the bully!
Hawk (to Johnny): Miguel's in the hospital because of you. He showed mercy to Robby Keene because of you. If he dies, that's on you.
John Kreese: I did warn you about this. I told you not to show weakness.
Johnny Lawrence: Get out.
John Kreese: This is my dojo. Oh, I forgot to tell you, when you were out of town, I had a little talk with the landlord. It turns out he doesn't like you much. But you know the problem with those handshake deals, there are no guarantees.
Johnny Lawrence: You can't do this.
John Kreese: Of course I can. I founded Cobra Kai. It belongs to me. It always has, and it always will. I will never let my students lose. Even if they have to learn the hard way. One day you will thank me for this, Johnny.
Johnny Lawrence: This was a mistake. You want Cobra Kai... It's yours.
(Johnny finds a voice message from Miguel on his phone...) Miguel Diaz: Hey, Sensei, it's Miguel, I knocked on your door this morning, but I guess you already left. I'm having some girl trouble and, well, you're better at this sort of thing than me. I'll come by the dojo after school. My mom is working tonight, so maybe we could grab a burger at that place you like? I'll talk to you later.
Johnny Lawrence: To be a great fighter, you gotta learn to adapt. This creed on the wall... Follow it to the letter, it'll make you strong. It'll make you formidable. It'll also make you an a**hole. 'Cause that's just black paint on a white wall. But life's not black and white. More often than not, it's gray. And it's in those gray areas where Johnny Lawrence's Cobra Kai sometimes shows mercy. Doesn't mean you can't be badass. It's still a requirement. But you have to learn to think, not just with your gut, or your fists, but to really use this.
Robby Keene: Hey, Mr. LaRusso, it's like 100 degrees out. Can we take it easy today?
Daniel LaRusso: Are you kidding? This heatwave is a gift. Today, you are going to experience Shochu-Geiko.
Chris: Like the car insurance?
Daniel LaRusso: Shochu-Geiko is a Japanese exercise where you train during the hottest days of the year. It's about pushing yourself to your limit. The fight isn't always going to come when it's 75 degrees and breezy.
Daniel LaRusso (to Cobra Kai): Let me tell you something about your sensei. He might teach you how to fight, but he doesn't know a thing about what it takes to truly win at life. If you want to help yourselves before it's too late, the doors of Miyagi-Do? Wide open.
Johnny Lawrence: You come in here and poach my students?
Daniel LaRusso: And what are you gonna do about it? You know I'm not gonna strike first.
Johnny Lawrence: I'm gonna be a bigger man.
Daniel LaRusso: Yeah. We'll see about that.
Demetri Conners: My whole life I've been, let's just say, less than popular. But at least I had a few friends. And then Cobra Kai comes to town, and next thing I know, my friends are taking karate and becoming alpha jerks. I'm literally being threatened by my best friend. I just wanted to show I could fight back.
Daniel LaRusso: Look, I understand what you're going through. I do. But Miyagi-Do isn't about showing off. It's about...
Demetri Conners: Self-defense. I know. Problem is, my self is too weak.
Demetri Conners: Hey, Mr. L, before we begin...
Daniel LaRusso: What's...
Demetri Conners: It's a note from my mom excusing me from any extensive arm and leg movements. So, uh, if there's an alternative lesson I could do... Maybe a workbook.
Daniel LaRusso: Show me "sand the floor."
Demetri Conners: You want me to sand it again? It's pretty smooth.
Daniel LaRusso: No, no, not actually... The movement. Show me the movement. Remember? You ready?
Demetri Conners: You kicked me!
Daniel LaRusso: Why didn't you block, Demetri? You know this. This is the muscle memory.
Demetri Conners: In case you haven't noticed, I don't have muscles.
