Directed by John G. Avildsen. Written by Robert Mark Kamen.

Daniel LaRusso

  • You know, this is the '80s, Mr. Miyagi; you can't be so damn passive!

Terry Silver

  • Look at this. Ten years ago, nuclear was the preferred waste. You could dump it anywhere! Now everybody's a detective. I'm lucky if I make one deal a year without being indicted!
  • Now the real pain begins, Danny-boy.
  • What's his name, Miyagi, and that punk kid...I'm gonna get them for what they did to you. They made you suffer, so I'm gonna make them suffer... and suffer and suffer, and when I think they've suffered enough, then I start with the pain!
  • [watching Barnes fighting Daniel] I love it when he pounds him!
  • A man can't stand, he can't fight.
  • A man can't breathe, he can't fight.
  • A man can't see, he can't fight.
  • Well well, look who's here; The big war hero!


  • [entering the Bonsai Shop] Room for one more down there?

Mike Barnes

  • [appears in front of Daniel as Terry Silver reveals his true nature] I'm what he's talking about, shithead.
  • [in Semi-Final fight, winning 2-0] You're next LaRusso! I own your ass!
  • Remember on the phone, when you said if I come down here and beat LaRusso in the All-Valley Tournament, that you'd give me 25 percent ownership of your new dojos? Well, I've been giving it some thought. To perform my best, which is what I want to do, I'm afraid I'm gonna need 50 percent.

Mr. Nariyoshi Miyagi

  • If karate used defend honor, defend life, karate mean something. If karate used defend plastic metal trophy, karate no mean nothing.
  • [Miyagi stares wistfully at a picture of him and Daniel together] Hope confusion end soon, Daniel-san. Miyagi heart empty without you.
  • [Miyagi tells Daniel something before Sudden Death Overtime] You stay focused. Daniel-san, your best Karate is still inside Time let out!


Terry Silver: I owe you, man.
John Kreese: You don't owe me anything.
Terry Silver: Oh, bullshit! I don't owe you anything? What about Vietnam, huh? How many times did you save my ass?
John Kreese: I don't know. I lost count.

California. Daniel is talking on the phone to his mother who has returned to New Jersey
Daniel Larusso: Hey Mom, how are you back in New Jersey?
Lucille Larusso: I am here with your Uncle Louie in Parsipanny. I may have to spend the whole summer with him. Oh, but my son will be starting college!
Daniel Larusso: Yeah I know Mom. Here I will put Mr. Miyagi on.
Lucille Larusso: Thanks. talking to Mr. Miyagi Thanks so much. Are you sure you are okay with watching after Daniel? [Uncle Louie rings a bell] Oh no, I have to go.
Mr. Miyagi: That is fine by me. You just help Uncle Louie. Nice mama! Good mama.

Terry Silver: What, you think you can rely on that crane crap?
Daniel Larusso: Did pretty well with it last time.
Terry Silver: Hey, wake up and smell the coffee, Mr. LaRusso! Last time you weren't fighting this.
[Shows Daniel a picture of Mike Barnes]

Terry Silver: [to Mike Barnes before the match] Remember the game plan. First you win a point, then you lose a point. Keep the score 0-0, pulverize him for the full 3 minutes, then in sudden death you get the point, we win. I want him to experience pain. First he suffers.
John Kreese: Then he suffers some more.

Terry Silver: [at the climax of Daniel's training] Visualize: this is not a bunch of sticks and pipes anymore; this is a living, breathing wrecking machine who wants to detatch your head from the rest of your body!
[Daniel gashes his fist on the 2X4 with Mike Barnes' picture]
Terry Silver: It's blood. So what? Make believe it's his! This guy wants to break you! Humiliate you! STOMP YOU INTO THE GROUND! NOW WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?!
Daniel Larusso: ...NAIL HIM!
Terry Silver: THEN DO IT!
[Daniel breaks all three 2X4s]
Terry Silver: YES! You nailed him! You're ready!

[Terry Silver is on the phone with Kreese]
Terry Silver: What did I tell you, my man? The minute you step off that plane, you're the biggest dojo operator in the valley!
John Kresse: What do you mean? What are you talking about?
Terry Silver: I bought 20 locations today, signed, sealed, 100%. You are back, my man; bigger and badder than ever!
John Kreese: You're a sweetheart, that's great. But what about those two jerks?
Terry Silver: "Those two jerks" are taking up 100% of my time from now on. So have patience, my friend. I'm just getting everything rolling. When I'm finished with that kid, he'll be begging me to be his teacher! And you know what he's going to learn from me?! Pain in every part of his body, and fear in every part of his mind! [laughs] And here's the kicker: he's going to thank me for it!
John Kreese: What about the old man?
Terry Silver: Him I hurt through the kid. Johnny, by the time that little twerp steps into the ring to defend his title, I'm going to have him thinking he's invincible. And then he's gong to find out what pain and fear really mean... [smiles a bit more evilly] ...right in front of a thousand people!
John Kreese: How do you know he'll compete?
Terry Silver: He'll compete. Don't worry about it; you just have fun. Go give Mamona and her girlfriend a squeeze for me.
John Kreese: [smiling] How do you know about Mamona?
Terry Silver: I know! [laughs] Anything else?
John Kreese: [looks at his hands] Yeah. Make his knuckles bleed.
Terry Silver: [shocked/amazed] Hey! Hey, I like that! Oh, I like that, Johnny! I'm going to use it!! [laughs maniacally]

[Mike and the Silver brothers enter the bonsai shop.]
Daniel Larusso: Hey, hey! Come on, guys. This isn't funny anymore, alright? Come on, turn on the lights.
Snake Silver: Hey, Danny, I hope you got some good news for my friend here.
Mike Barnes: I hope so too, Daniel.
Daniel Larusso: I told you, alright? I can't help you out. Forget about it, all right? Hey, where are you going?
Mike Barnes: You mean you haven't signed the application yet?
Daniel Larusso: I'm not signing the application. I'm not gonna compete! Please, take your friends and get outta here.
Mike Barnes: [calls across the room] Hey, Dennis! He didn't sign it yet.
Dennis Silver: [shakes his head, making tsking sounds. Then he karate-chops some shoji windows]
Daniel Larusso: Hey! Hey, come on; guys, this getting out of hand now. Don't you get it? I'm not signing the application!
Mike Barnes: Sure you are. You are if you know what's good for you.
Daniel Larusso: No! I'm not gonna be there, alright? You're wasting your time; so take off, alright? [He and Dennis get into a shoving match]
Dennis: You take off!
Mike Barnes: Come on, Dennis, take him out!
Snake: Pull his eye out! Yeah, Dennis, wreck him! [Daniel takes out Dennis with a couple of well-placed blows, while Jessica trips Snake to the floor. Then Mike drops Jessica with a kick to the ribs. Then Daniel angrily attacks Mike, who fends him off with ease and then counterattacks...knocking Daniel hard to the floor]
Mike Barnes: Come on, punk! Let's see what you've got! (Daniel tries to kick Mike) Nice kick...not bad...getting better...good but still not good enough! (pushes/kicks him) COME ON! GET UP! Why are you being so stubborn? [Daniel punches him feebly, Mike says “Don’t do that.” and Daniel is tossed into more furniture, which is broken as a result] I'm running out of patience, LaRusso! Now, let's get on with it. SIGN THE APPLICATION! [Jessica says “Mike, STOP IT!” and goes “Just get outta here!”, Mr. Miyagi shows up, Mike says “Save it to the tournament!”, “NAIL HIM!” and “COME ON, OLD MAN!” and Mr. Miyagi ejects all three troublemakers, who speed off in their red Ferrari] I'll be back, LaRusso! I'm gonna get you, man! You're finished, you hear me? Finished!
Snake : Yeah! You can't watch him forever, Buddha-head!

[Terry Silver is taking a bath while his secretary reads messages to him]
Terry Silver: [takes a phone call] What? Don't bullshit me. What do you mean, you can't dump it in Borneo? Who in Borneo knows what chloride sludge is? Just do it. Do it! Call me when it's dumped. [hangs up] Where were we, Margaret?
Margaret: "And in conclusion, I reject your final offer. If you proceed, I will sue your collective asses accordingly."
Terry Silver: "Best to Lorna and the kids. Sincerely, Blah-blah-blah." [takes a phone call] Yeah? Oh, good. Bring him in. [hangs up] What else?
Margaret: Uh, the grand jury? What do you intend to do about them?
Terry Silver: Bribe them, as usual.
Margaret: [aghast] Mr. Silver!
Terry Silver: Lighten up, Margaret. Who's the D.A. on the case?
Margaret: Mr. Cole.
Terry Silver: Oh good! Uh, let's invite Willie to dinner Tuesday night and let's make sure we have his favorite. What is it? Uh, poached salmon?

[after meeting Mike Barnes]
Terry Silver: So what do you think?
Margaret: Oh, he's obnoxious.
Terry Silver: [laughing] Yeah. He's perfect!
[relaxes in bubble bath]

[Cobras are leaving Daniel/Jessica stranded on ropes]
Daniel Larusso: Hey!
Snake: Yes, sweetheart?
Daniel Larusso: Pull us up, man!
Mike Barnes: The stakes just went up. Give us the tree.
Jessica Andrews: No, Daniel, don't!
Daniel Larusso: [does anyway] All right, but just be careful.
Dennis: [laughing evilly] What are you going to do with it?
Snake: SHUT UP!
[Daniel and Jessica scream.]
Snake: Down there!
Daniel Larusso: NO!
Jessica Andrews: NO!
Daniel Larusso: Please don't.
Mike Barnes: [disgusted] Alright, alright, Enough. Gimme it! [takes it] Okay. Now you want it, right?
Daniel Larusso: Yes!
Jessica Andrews: Yes!
Mike Barnes: Okay, Daniel.
[breaks the trunk of the tree]
Mike Barnes: Make a wish.
[goes off laughing very hard with Dennis and Snake]

Daniel Larusso: [tentatively] Mr. Miyagi?
[holds up injured tree]
[Mr. Miyagi drops broom in sad shock but calmly takes the tree and starts fixing it]
Daniel Larusso: [worried, sad] Will it be okay?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Depend. If root's strong, tree survive.

[Daniel is practicing a kata in Miyagi's backyard when Mike Barnes walks in]
Daniel Larusso: Hey! Get out of here, man, I signed it (some application?), alright?!
Mike Barnes: What'd you call the cops for?
Daniel Larusso: What'd you steal the trees for?
Mike Barnes: No proof.
Daniel Larusso: Oh, who left the application/applications, the tooth fairy, huh?!
[the two fight until Barnes has Daniel on the ground]
Mike Barnes: [steps on Daniel's throat] There's nothing you've got that I can't counter/count her (Jessica), your karate's a joke. [Terry Silver enters]
Terry Silver: Let him up, punk!
Mike Barnes: Who are you? His mother?
Terry Silver: Maybe.
[They "fight". Terry eventually "subdues" Barnes and grabs him by the hair.]
Mike Barnes: [afraid he's going to fall, he leans a hand on Silver for balance]
Terry Silver: Get your hand off. Get the hand off me.
Mike Barnes: [shaking lets go]
Terry Silver: I ever even see you on the same street as this kid I will seriously mess you up. You understand?
Mike Barnes: Okay...
Terry Silver: YOU UNDERSTAND?!
Mike Barnes: YES!
Terry Silver: [lets him go] Alright. [literally kicks Barnes out...on his butt] Now get the hell out of here!
Mike Barnes: [zooms out of garden]
Terry Silver: [helping Daniel up] Who is that guy?
Daniel Larusso: That's the lunatic that wants my title. I was hoping you would have killed him. [lame chuckle]
Terry Silver: [honourably and wisely] No, no. That's not what karate's about. It's for defence.
Daniel Larusso: [feeling suitably ashamed] Yeah, yeah, I know, you're right.

Terry Silver: There you are.
Daniel LaRusso: Yeah. I had to do some thinking.
Terry Silver: And?
Daniel LaRusso: I've decided not to defend my title after all. You've been a great trainer, but...Well, when I hit that guy in the club, that's just not my style. I wanted to let you know all of this in person, because I figure that's the least of I owe you.
Terry Silver: You owe me a lot more than that, Danny-boy.
Daniel LaRusso: Oh, I can pay for the lessons; just give me a couple of weeks, and I'll raise the money.
Terry Silver: No, no; this isn't about money. You are gonna defend. If I have to maim somebody for life to see it through, you're getting in that ring.
Daniel LaRusso: Excuse me, Mr. Silver - You can't make me do something I don't want to do.
Terry Silver: [laughs] Danny, Danny...from the moment you met me, I've been making you do things you didn't want to do.
Daniel LaRusso: [confused] What are you talking about?
Terry Silver: [calls in office] Let's show him what I'm talking about!
Mike Barnes: [steps out] I'm what he's talking about, shithead!
Terry Silver: We have an agenda here, Daniel; it's really very simple...
Daniel LaRusso: [backpedaling] You guys are crazy!
Terry Silver: ...Either you fight for your life on one day, or you fight every day for the rest of your life! [even more hyped up] So what's it going to be, Danny-boy!?
Daniel LaRusso: It's not gonna be anything, because I'm not going to be there! So just forget about it! [starts to exit but is blocked by John Kreese.]
Terry Silver: Let's show Mr. Kreese how he's going to get his business back!
Daniel LaRusso: Hey I'm not gonna fight! You can't make me fight!
Terry Silver: You don't have to! You can just stand there and let him kick your ass! [Daniel tries to fight Barnes, but Barnes gets the upper hand] Do the Crane, Danny-Boy!
Mike Barnes: [attacks Daniel] You're doing this to yourself, man! [He punches Daniel in the gut repeatedly, before shoving Daniel towards the door. Daniel hastily runs off, all while Silver and Kreese laugh uproariously]
Terry Silver: Do you wanna see some more?
John Kreese: I wanna see a lot more!
Terry Silver: [to Mike] Bring him back. [Barnes runs out after Daniel, Silver turns to Kreese] You see his face? See the trail? I think he peed in his pants! [They laugh maniacally until they're cut short by a Miyagi tosses Barnes through the dojo doors] Well well well, look who's here. The big war hero! [to Barnes] What are you waiting for?
[Barnes tries to attack Miyagi. Miyagi tosses him aside and he hits his head on the wall, falling to the floor unconscious. Kreese and Silver turn to one another]
John Kreese and Terry Silver: [bow to one another] Party time. [Silver prepares to fight Kreese. Kreese gestures for Silver to wait his turn]
John Kreese: We're old friends.
[Kreese launches an attack on Miyagi. Miyagi makes short work of him, quickly neutralizes him by striking several pressure points on his body, and tosses him aside on his stomach. An excited Silver makes mock battle cries as he assumes a fighting position. Daniel makes his way back into the dojo]
Terry Silver Come on, little man. Let's see how good you really are.
[Miyagi manages to block every one of Silver's attacks and eventually finishes him by knocking him backwards into a mirror panel, which shatters, while several buckets of paint fall on Silver, dousing him. As Silver lays there, Miyagi does a mocking impression of his battle cries]
Terry Silver: You think this is the end of it, old man? I'm gonna open Cobra Kai dojos all over this valley! HELL, I MIGHT EVEN TEACH FOR FREE! FROM NOW ON, WHEN PEOPLE SAY KARATE AROUND HERE, ALL THEY'LL MEAN IS COBRA KAI KARATE! JOHN KREESE'S KARATE! YOU WON'T EVEN BE A MEMORY!
Daniel LaRusso: Yes he [Miyagi] will! You won't! [Kreese and Silver just laugh maniacally; Daniel turns to Miyagi] Now will you train me?
Mr. Miyagi: Hai.

[the Cobras are pulling Daniel/Jessica but stop about 95% of the way up so they can get the application]
Daniel Larusso: Hey! Pull us up!
Snake: First give us the application.
Daniel Larusso: No! I'll give it to you when we get up there.
Mike Barnes: Oh yeah!? [lets Jessica fall for 1/2 second. She's fallen 5 feet]
Daniel Larusso: All right! All right!
[gives it to Snake]
Daniel Larusso: Here.
Mike Barnes: Check it out.
Snake: [does] It's cool.
Mike Barnes: [points at Daniel, lecturing] Hey, don't even think about backing out, man, cause then I'll really be pissed. And this, this will all seem like a happy memory compared to what I do to you [looks at Jessica] and what we all do to her.

Daniel Larusso: I know you don't believe in fighting, but tournament karate isn't exactly fighting.
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Not exactly ping-pong, either.

Terry Silver: You think this is the end of it, old man? I'm gonna open Cobra Kai dojos all over this Valley! HELL, I MIGHT EVEN TEACH FOR FREE! From now on, all that anyone will know about is Cobra Kai karate! John Kreese's karate! You won't even be a memory!
Daniel Larusso: Yes, he will! You won't!
[Kreese and Silver are laughing hysterically, as Daniel turns to Miyagi]
Daniel Larusso: NOW... will you train me?
Mr. Miyagi: Hai. Now Miyagi train you.

Mr. Miyagi: Daniel-san...Daniel-san!
Daniel Larusso: Mr. Miyagi, it's over! It's over; forget about it!
Mr. Miyagi: No...No!
Daniel Larusso: I'm afraid! Let's get out of here; I wanna go home!
Mr. Miyagi: Cannot, cannot! Must not! Must fight! Must win! If do not, that future karate, whole valley!!
Daniel Larusso: Yeah, well, I don't give a shit about that crap; I'm afraid! I'm afraid of this guy, all right? Let him have the goddamn title!!
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Oy...OY! You stay focused. Daniel-san, you best karate still inside you! Now time let out!

Terry Silver: Whoa...50%? Well, I don't know if I can afford more than 33%.
Mike Barnes: I understand. I guess I'd better get going, then...Nice meeting you, everybody.
[turns to leave]
Terry Silver: Hey...
[Mike turns around]
Terry Silver: ...Do you fight as hard as you negotiate?
Mike Barnes: Harder.
Terry Silver: You got your 50%.
Mike Barnes: And I get that in writing?
Terry Silver: By noon today.
Mike Barnes: Mr. Silver, you just bought yourself a champion.
Terry Silver: I'll remember that; make sure you do.

Mr. Miyagi: Inside you same place you karate come from.
Daniel Larusso: My karate comes from you.
Mr. Miyagi: Ah. Only root karate come from Miyagi. Just like bonsai choose own way grow because root strong you choose own way do karate same reason.
Daniel Larusso: I do it your way.
Mr. Miyagi: Hai. One day you do own way.

Terry Silver: [speaking to Mike Barnes] If you're looking to be a bad boy in L.A., Snake's the boy to be bad with. Right, Snake?
Snake: You know it.
