Cobra Kai (2018) s03e01 Episode Script


This is it, folks.
The moment we've all been waiting for.
Returning to defend his title, from Cobra Kai Karate, Miguel Diaz! Get ready It's karate time! [REFEREE.]
Face each other, bow.
Face me, bow.
It was two weeks ago today at West Valley High, where what can only be described as an all-out karate riot caught students and faculty off-guard, sending shock waves through the Valley.
We got enough to worry about these days.
Now we got karate gangs in the school? I heard there was a karate attack at the mall a couple months back.
I thought karate died out in the '80s.
Earlier today, students organized a peaceful gathering of prayer and song.
right to love We don't have to punch Hey, let's go get some brunch and be friends Tonight, West Valley High is holding a community meeting to answer questions and help settle fears.
He's still here.
It's been four hours.
He's starting to creep out the customers.
All right.
Tell him it's time to go.
I gave him the bill two drinks ago.
Now he's refusing to pay.
Said he didn't order Coors Light, he ordered Coors Banquet.
All right.
I'll handle this.
Sir? It's time to settle your tab and move on.
Light beer is for pussies.
- Do I need to call the cops? - I don't know, do you? [MARIA ON TV.]
Police are still looking for Robby Keene, who ran away after kicking fellow student Miguel Diaz off a second floor balcony, landing right here on this staircase.
Keene has since been expelled.
Diaz, meanwhile, remains in a coma at West Valley General.
Doctors say his prognosis Hey! I was watching that.
I'm sorry.
I didn't realize it was your TV, homie.
Change it back! It's the bottom of the ninth.
You want to see the news, check your phone.
I don't have a phone! I threw it away.
Look at this guy.
last time you shower, cabrón? You smell like a piece of dog shit took a dump.
- Change it back.
- Bro.
You're at a bar.
People wanna watch the game, they don't give a shit about no weather reports or some coma kid.
And it's gone! - That's what I'm talking about! - Yeah, man! [IN SPANISH.]
Let's go, buddy.
Oops! That's my bad.
What a loser.
Let's go.
Are you nuts? Think I'd leave my car here? This is my princess.
Okay, what do you wanna do? You wanna go home or hit up Jelly's? - Let's go see what the talent's like.
- What does it matter? You'll still end up whacking it alone in the shower.
you think you're doing, man? Kicking your ass.
Oh, shit! [JOHNNY GROANS.]
What the hell? [IN SPANISH.]
Call the police.
You're dead, amigo.
I'm not leaving here without an explanation.
I can't believe they had the gall to suspend Sam for two weeks! I'm gonna tell the school board how incompetent they are.
Heads will roll.
At least they expelled the girl who started the whole thing.
Expelled? That bitch should be in Shawshank.
- Calm down.
- "Calm down"? Everyone is against us! In case you haven't noticed, the dealership is a ghost town.
It's not that bad.
Yes, it is.
Daniel, our name is poison.
Turns out "Kicking the competition" isn't a cute tagline when your karate student literally kicks the competition over a railing.
Look I'm sorry.
It's just I'm a little on edge right now, okay? No.
I'm sorry.
I got us into this.
And I promise, I'm gonna find a way to get us out.
Okay? Come on.
People, please take your seats.
Thank you all for coming.
Everyone at the school board cares about the safety of our students.
- Where the hell were the teachers? - Yeah! your frustration.
But the NEA guidelines are quite clear.
That no teacher can get between two students fighting.
[MAN 1.]
What about that neckbeard teacher who attacked all the kids?! Mr.
Stingray never worked here.
Last we heard Last we heard he's on probation and not allowed within 500 feet of any child.
How do we know this isn't gonna happen again? We have a new initiative called "Hugs Not Hits".
It's like DARE except it actually works.
So, your solution is to hug kids? Actually, they would hug each other.
What Counselor Blatt is trying to say is no more karate.
Zero tolerance from here on out.
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.
[MAN 2.]
Bullshit! I heard you were the real bully! [PRINCIPAL.]
Parents, please Can we please We are all trying to move on and handle this with the most appropriate response.
I'm sorry.
Tell me how it's appropriate that our daughter got suspended while some dimestore Freddy Krueger nearly tore her face off.
She was tramping around with that other girl's boyfriend! - Okay, no, no, no.
That's - Excuse me? Who said that? Our daughter wasn't responsible for any of this.
Don't get all high and mighty, LaRusso.
You're the one who taught these kids that Miyagi crap.
It was your student who hurt Diaz.
You reap what you sow.
Okay, no.
Come on.
We gotta stay composed.
Everyone, please.
Take a seat, please.
All right.
Settle down, please, everybody.
Hey, blondie.
That look infected? [GAGS.]
- Morning, Lou.
- Here.
What do we got here? Drug addict, drug addict Holy shit! Applebee's guy? What is it with you and shitty chain restaurants? You know, happy hour's supposed to be happy.
Wait a minute.
Your son's the one that kicked that kid off the balcony.
Guess the garbage doesn't fall far from the truck.
Robby's nothing like me.
- He's a good kid.
- He's a fugitive.
Yeah? Then why are you sitting 'round here talkin'? Shouldn't you be out there looking for him? Robby made a mistake.
Shouldn't mean his life's over.
Tell that to the kid he killed.
Killed? What do you mean killed? Something happen to Miguel? I ain't a doctor.
But after two weeks in a coma, the coma usually wins.
- [YELLS.]
- [BERT.]
Hey, guys.
- There's the man.
- How's it going? - This is the year.
Day one, round two.
Let's get it, boys.
Ooh! Freshman babes, eleven o'clock.
Hey, ladies.
I know freshman year can be kind of scary.
If anybody gives you any trouble, just come to me.
I'm the guy Who wets the bed and got kicked into that trophy case? Yeah, we know.
Oh shit! Hey, Demetri.
Someone knows who I am.
A human female! You famous now, 'Met.
Got something to say? Yeah.
Check out my new Lit book.
There's a lot of hard-hitting shit in here, you know what I mean.
Well, this security isn't enough to protect your scrawny ass.
I don't need security.
Everything all right here? Oh, we're all buddies here.
- Isn't that right, fellas? - Yeah.
Don't you all have somewhere to be? Yes, Counselor Blatt.
'Sup, front wedgie? - [CHRIS LAUGHS.]
What happened to this place? I go to Paris for one summer and the losers are running the school? I'd be a little nicer.
Half the kids in school know karate now.
Does that make Aisha queen bitch? You didn't hear? After the fight, her parents moved her to a private school.
They even put their house up for sale.
At least there's some good news.
Maybe for you.
I feel bad for Sam.
Her and Aisha were friends since they were little.
- There she is! - [SCOFFS.]
Robby, what did you do? - [GASPS.]
- Oh.
Easy there, Captain Marvel.
Same team, remember? I have to go.
Please, I really need to find him.
His name is Robby Keene.
That's K-E-E-N-E.
Or possibly a John Doe.
All right.
Thank you.
- Well, that was useless.
- Nothing at the hospitals? No.
And the homeless shelters were a dead end too, so Hey, boss, Mrs.
I got something on my computer you gotta see.
And don't worry, it's not porno this time.
All right, Louie.
We'll be there in a second.
I can't believe we hired him again.
Listen, you know, I'm not his biggest fan, but he was the first one at our door when Sam got hurt.
However bad he screwed up, he does care about this family.
Oh, by the way, I bought bagels.
You two better haul ass or you'll be stuck with the shitty cranberry ones.
I didn't even ask for them.
I mean, who eats those? See, at first I thought it was just a blip on the screen, but no.
It's as clear as day.
- What am I looking at here? - It's the trade-in lot.
I made a spreadsheet.
Those numbers, they don't match up.
Are you sure this is right? [LOUIE.]
It's the one thing I know, it's inventory.
I worked at Fat Sal's on a summer, inventory's everything there.
I mean it's not like cars here, but you know, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, Russian dressing Those little jalapenos Okay, I get the gist, all right.
So, you're saying we're missing a car? - We're actually missing a - [HITS KEY.]
'93 Dodge Caravan.
Looks like it's been gone a couple weeks.
Would Robby steal a car? He did have the gate codes.
But why would he steal that shitbox? Because he knows we wouldn't notice.
- Oh my God.
We gotta call the police.
- No, no, not yet.
What're you talking about? We have GPS devices in all the cars.
They can use it to track him.
The lawyer said if the cops find him when he's on the run, they're gonna throw the book at him.
He's a dropout with a juvenile record.
But if we could find him first, get him to turn himself in, we can make a better case.
We could still help him.
All right, find the VIN number, text me the GPS.
You know, not for nothin'.
If it was me, I'd have taken a Ferrari.
Don't miss your court date, or I'll hunt you like a dog in the street, bruh.
We'll see about that, bruh! [YELLS.]
It's mama.
I love you so much, my baby.
Please come back to us.
We're right here.
I hope you can hear me, mijo.
He can.
Just remind him you're here.
Talk about things he loves.
Hey, Miguel.
I think the Dodgers are gonna make the playoffs.
Even though I guess they'll screw it up as usual.
I love you.
That's a point.
On one Can I help you? - Yeah, I'm here to see Miguel Diaz.
- He's in the ICU.
Are you family? No, but, uh Only family, doctors and patients in the ICU.
Can't you make an exception? Those are the rules.
Can't you, you know break the rules? Come on, be a bad girl.
Only family, doctors and patients in the ICU.
You're no fun.
Come on, Robby.
- Check those tires for me.
- Hey.
Did you find him? - [DANIEL.]
I found the GPS, but no van.
He must've remembered we track all the trade-ins.
Now I'm back to square one.
Is there anywhere nearby that he could've gone? There is one place.
I'm Dr.
L Nguyen.
I just need to get past that door.
Hey, doc.
I got this You're not a doctor.
I think I need to see a doctor.
Sam? Dad? What are you doing here? What are you doing here? Is Robby with you? No.
Have you heard from him? No.
I was just out looking for him.
I Wait, why aren't you in school? I thought I was ready.
But then everybody was staring at me.
I just had to get out of there.
So I came here.
Well, In-N-Out, and then here.
I get it.
Believe me, I've been in enough fights to know.
It's different when you're a girl.
I mean, even if you win, you're not cool or tough.
They think you're crazy.
And then I think about what Miguel and Robby are going through, and I just I feel so guilty.
It's not your fault.
All this started before you were even born.
If not for me and Johnny, there wouldn't have been a fight in the first place.
This is my fault.
I thought we were the good guys.
We are.
At least we try to be.
That's what's most important.
But there's one thing I do know for sure, and that's that you can't run away from your problems.
And I can't run away from mine.
Come here.
We might need to keep him overnight.
Lab found blood in his urine.
Oh, that? No biggie.
I got in a fight last night.
Just a little, uh, jam in the lemonade.
Usually goes away in two, three days.
But this sucker's been bothering me a little bit.
A little Bengay should take care of that, right? Uh, wait here.
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 I know you got it in you to pull through.
You just gotta keep fighting.
Never give up.
You can do this.
- I know you can.
- Excuse me? Only family is allowed in here.
Yeah, I was just leaving.
Johnny? What the hell? We're closed.
The dojo's going through some renovations.
What do you think? Where's Johnny? He's not here right now.
But he'll be back.
You know, it's a shame what happened at the school.
Such a tragedy.
But I don't really blame Robby.
'Cause you know what they say there's no such thing as a bad student.
It must really hurt to see the Miyagi name dragged through the mud.
Wish I could see the look on the little bastard's face.
That little bastard kicked your ass.
More than once.
You're lucky he taught me true karate.
That's why I'm not gonna fight you.
Oh, but you will.
It's inevitable.
But this time, Johnny and I will finish it.
Once and for all.
You're not gonna do anything.
Not while I'm around.
You know where to find me.
Good to go.
Thank you.
You wanna say something, say it to my face! [GIRL GASPS.]
That's what I thought.
Hey, don't you ever answer your Oh God, what happened to you? I bumped my head.
What do you want? I went to your dojo, and saw your old sensei.
What the hell happened? I thought you said he was gone.
Look, I don't wanna get into it right now.
All right? I got a headache.
I need some sleep.
I got a lead on Robby.
I've been trying to find him on my own.
But I thought maybe you'd like to help.
Look, I don't wanna be here any more than you.
But I know we both want Robby to be safe.
He's out there somewhere.
He doesn't have anyone to help him.
The whole reason these kids got into trouble was because of us.
No mercy! [GRUNTS.]
We can't let them suffer because of our issues.
Code blue.
Respiration's spiking.
The only way to end this is by working together.
So? What do you say? [YELLS.]
Winner! [GASPS.]
