Cobra Kai (2018) s03e05 Episode Script


1 Behind you! Kumiko! In their eyes No more talk.
You cross bridge, I kill her! Daniel-san.
This not tournament.
This for real.
I know.
Now we fight to death.
Live or die, man? Die.
Let's go, Speed Racer.
I'm gonna work those gimpy legs like a rented mule.
I thought you said 10:00 that you'd be alone.
Sorry, my Mom gets free physical therapy from work.
And this was the only time Brayden was available.
Be done soon if you wanna wait.
Now, if you're feeling any pain, hermano, let me know.
- Still no feeling whatsoever.
- No worries.
Positive thoughts, remember? You're doing great.
At what, letting you lift his legs? Johnny, Brayden is a specialist in this field.
He knows what he's doing.
Slow, deep breaths.
Inhale joy and love.
- You gotta be shitting me? - Johnny can I talk to you for a minute? Miguel wants you to be part of his rehabilitation.
I'm not going to deny him that.
But I'm also not going to deny him access to a medical professional with years of education and experience.
You clearly have an opinion about his methods.
But if you can't keep that opinion to yourself, maybe you should just catch up with Miguel once his therapy session is over? Okay.
I'm sorry.
Let me tell you about your dad.
He was always a scrapper.
But the moment I knew he was the real deal was his first All Valley.
He made the quarters, but he drew a kid named Vidal.
Now Vidal was a third-generation black belt.
Very skilled.
Way beyond Johnny, at the time.
Your old man lost.
But he didn't make it easy.
And I saw that look in his eye that he would never let that happen again.
Cool story.
Try telling it to someone who gives a shit.
You're his son, all right.
Yeah, and look where that got me.
Come on, kid.
You know you don't deserve to be here.
From what I heard, you tried to break up that fight and Diaz attacked you.
Sure, you can keep beating yourself up for what went down.
By the look of your face, there's plenty of people here happy to do that for you.
You're wasting your time, old man.
The last thing I need is another sensei.
Fair enough.
I don't think there's much I could teach you right now anyway.
Except maybe this all that Miyagi-Do mumbo jumbo that might score you points in a tournament.
But now you're in the real world, kid, you might wanna learn to strike first.
- Good hit, man.
- Yeah.
We have to be ready to fight.
What do you think you're doing? Uh Would you believe study group? Go home.
All of you.
Now! So, what part of "no more karate" did you not understand? Seems pretty straightforward.
The part where you and Dad think that you get to decide that for me.
They do pay the bills.
As long as you live under their roof.
What about school? Principal Lopez called me.
You think you can just ignore their rules too? What, the soccer game? That was nothing.
It's not nothing, Sam.
You could've got suspended again.
Thought you were smarter than that.
Very disappointed in you.
Go wait in the car, Anthony.
Look, Sam, I don't know what's going on with you No, you don't.
And if you really think that karate's the problem, then you have not been paying attention.
So, you married, kids? No wife.
No kids.
Oh, you have total freedom.
Master of your domain.
Ever see Seinfeld? More of a Friends guy, I guess.
Okay, I'm gonna get myself another drink.
Would - I will get.
- No, no.
I'll get it.
No! I will get.
Okay, you gotta help me out here.
This is the most awkward conversation of my life.
Why is he even here? - I called him.
- You called him? Did you forget that time we fought to the death? That guy tried to kill me.
And you! That was a long time ago.
Chozen has changed.
People like him don't change, okay? Trust me.
I know all there is to know about grudges.
Believe me.
Then it seems you two have lots to talk about.
I have to go.
What? You can't leave me alone here with this guy! I have errands to run.
Would you give Daniel-san a tour around town? - Mmm.
- Thank you.
- I'll see you later.
- Sure you don't want Yeah.
- Gonna have a drink? - I don't drink.
Great job today, jefe.
You crushed it.
Really? It didn't feel like I did much of anything.
Hey, no negative thoughts.
Just positive energy.
I'll keep that in mind.
What's this? This is a collection of the tastiest babes of 1988.
And you're not gonna get to see 'em unless you grab it.
- Okay.
- Uh, gonna have to try harder than that.
You know I can just find these pictures on my phone, right? It's not the same.
Chicks are hotter on the page.
You won't know unless you get off your butt.
Or you can just keep getting foot rubs from that pansy ass therapist.
Weak! That all you got, Diaz? I thought you were the All Valley champ? Oh yeah Come on, kid.
Come on.
Damn it! - You all right? - Yeah.
All right.
I got you, bud.
Here we go.
All right, gimme a minute, we'll go again.
Think I still have my Vanna White Playboy, that'll get you going.
Don't you get it? You could dangle a new PlayStation in front of me, I still wouldn't be able to stand up.
Now this is the Okinawa I remember.
Guess not all of Tomi Village is a shopping mall, huh? This is where karate was born.
Oh, right.
Miyagi Shimpo sensei.
You know Shimpo sensei? Yeah.
Like all Miyagi ancestors, he was a fisherman.
He loved fishing.
- And loved - Loved sake.
One day, strong wind, strong sun, strong sake.
But no fish.
- Shimpo sensei fall asleep - off the coast of Okinawa.
Woke up off the coast of China.
Ten years later, he came back with a Chinese wife and two kids.
And the secret of Miyagi family karate.
- Your sensei told you this? - Yeah.
Miyagi taught me everything he knew.
So you know everything, huh? Well, I'm not This way.
Where are we going now? Wow.
Wait a minute.
This is a dojo.
This is crane technique.
This is Miyagi-Do? Your sensei's father taught my uncle.
Sato taught me.
Before he died, Sato gave me all Miyagi artifacts.
- This is not for you! - Why not? You just said yourself our senseis had the same sensei.
We're basically karate cousins, right? You are a foreigner.
You can't take our secrets.
Hey, Mr.
Miyagi treated me like a son, not a foreigner.
He wouldn't keep any secrets from me.
Are you sure about that? Well, let us find out.
Yeah? Sam, I'm sorry I haven't been in touch.
I'm just having a hard time.
Hope you don't lose anything important.
Why don't you just leave me alone, man? That ain't ever gonna happen.
You're always gonna be looking over your shoulder.
Break time's up, shitbirds.
Back to your bunks.
You got lucky this time, bitch.
Let's go.
What are you lookin' at? Thank you! Here you go.
Come back soon to Golf 'N Stuff.
Hey, buddy.
- Hey, prize wench.
- What do you guys want? Well, to spend our hard-earned tickets, of course.
Why don't you be a good girl and grab us one of those bobbleheads.
Don't! Stop! Hey! Thanks, Chris.
Tell your mom I miss her.
Yeah and tell her to stop calling me.
You know why they call this a hibachi? They don't.
It's a kettle grill.
Hundred years ago in ancient China, there was a tiny little village of dairy farmers, living fat off their milk and cheese.
When the drought came, they needed to get water from the river.
None of the Chinamen wanted to do their work.
I'm not sure that's the appropriate term you used.
China people, whatever.
The point is, they were laying around in hammocks waiting for rain.
So a wise man gathered up a bunch of twigs and stuffed it under each of the villagers, while they slept.
- You know what he did then? - Lit a fire under them? Exactly.
That's where the expression comes from.
- You know what that wise man's name was? - Hibachi? - Damn straight.
- Yeah.
Except that hibachis are from Japan, not China, where there weren't a lot of dairy farmers, historically, or hammocks.
You think I was gonna fall for that? No, but I knew you'd be too busy calling my bullshit to know what I was really up to.
- Oh, yeah? And what's that? - Lighting a fire under you.
What did you do? What did you do?! - Are you insane? - Depends who you ask.
Come on, Diaz! - Shake a leg.
- I can't! - You can if you want it bad enough.
- It's all I want! Then focus! Tell your brain to tell your legs to get their asses moving! Okay.
- Oh, shit.
- Sensei, it's going up my leg! - I really thought that would work.
- Why didn't it? My foot was on fire.
And I didn't feel a thing.
Why is nothing working? It's fine.
I should probably just clean up before my mom gets home.
See ya.
Are you sure you just don't wanna show me the scrolls? Now let us see how much you really know.
I don't know what you want to God! What the hell? So, your sensei did not teach you everything.
Are you sure that was Miyagi-Do karate? Didn't seem like self-defense to me.
Defense takes on many forms.
The Miyagi ancestors fought Japanese invaders.
The only way to survive was to kill.
So Miyagi instructors came up with special techniques designed to kill their enemies.
Miyagi never told me about any of this.
Maybe he thought you were not ready.
Or not able.
Maybe Mr.
Miyagi was just trying to protect me.
We're not living hundreds of years ago.
No reason anymore to kill.
Sometimes you have no choice but to kill.
What did you do? Live or die, man? I have waited a long time for this.
Chozen no.
Honk! I'm glad you're having fun at my expense.
Oh, you should've seen your face! What What technique was that? My limbs were totally numb.
Secret Miyagi pressure points.
If an enemy insists on war then you take away their ability to wage it.
Yeah? Can you teach me? Well, I'll be damned.
Everything okay? - It's - Something with Miguel? Sometimes, I just have feelings I don't want him to see.
He's gonna get better, you know.
He'll walk again.
I hope so.
For now, I'd just like to see him smile again.
He's 17 years old.
He should be out, carefree, having fun.
Not Yeah.
It's gonna be okay.
I should go back in.
Good night.
Can I borrow Miguel for a few hours? Where are they? They snuck into the old laser tag place next door.
- How many? - Four of 'em.
Five of us.
I like our odds.
Are you sure we should be doing this? We're not on school property.
This is our chance to fight back.
Nice! - Brew time, man.
- Sweet.
Who's for a warm one? Who the hell wants a warm beer? You didn't bring an ice pack? What were you thinking? What the hell? What do you want? Payback.
What's up? - He doesn't want that.
- Man.
Go, go! Get him! Come on! That was for my mom! Get him! Come on! Sam LaRusso Where are you, bitch? Show yourself, LaRusso! Sam! No! Please, stop! Eli, stop! Stop! It's me! Don't do it! No! - Help me! - Do it! - Finish him! - He deserves it.
- Do it, Hawk! - No.
It's fine.
I'll go! I'll go! Hawk, finish him! Damn it! - Pussy.
- Damn! - Nice.
- Good shit, man.
This isn't over, LaRusso! Well, that was definitely a side of Miyagi-Do karate I never knew existed.
But I get why Mr.
Miyagi didn't want me to know it.
Your sensei is a man of great honor.
I can only hope to be like him.
Hey, you only did what your teacher told you to do.
After our fight, I felt great shame.
I I wanted to die.
But my uncle saved me.
He gave me a chance to prove myself.
I spent my life trying to do just that.
But regret is sometimes difficult to overcome.
I understand.
And if it means anything, Chozen, I I forgive you.
It means a great deal.
If only every rivalry could end like this.
What do you mean? Uh, nothing.
It's a different situation.
You know, I'm meeting Kumiko before my flight.
You should come join us.
Thank you, but I have a class to teach.
So, you go down this path and you catch a taxi from there.
Well, I'd say thanks, but you kinda kicked my ass today.
So, I'm just gonna say goodbye.
Daniel-san! What? You keep for your collection.
And I thought this place looked scary from the outside.
Where are we, Sensei? It's a field trip.
- Here.
Take this and follow my lead.
- Okay.
Be still.
Hold on.
Nice try.
- Come back when he's 21.
- Yeah, that's gonna be tough.
He'll be dead by then.
- What? - He should be dead already.
Every day is a gift.
He's got a bucket list.
Getting past that door is number one on it.
All right.
Go ahead.
Hey, good luck, kid.
"The Kids Are Back!" We walk the streets In tattered armies We got the lion in our heart That's Dee Snider, the most badass rocker ever.
Just for some fun But we're all ready if you wanna start How's this part of my physical therapy? It's not.
Just forget about all that and have some fun! Oh, watch out the kids are back Yeah! The kids are back Another karate fight? What the hell were you thinking? Mom Oh, baby.
- Sam, baby, you okay? - They broke Demetri's arm.
I just wanted to show that we couldn't be bullied.
It's all right.
It's gonna be all right.
It's okay.
It's gonna be okay.
I didn't do anything to help.
I couldn't stop them.
Why didn't you talk? I'm no snitch.
Me neither.
- Can I get a copy of that? - Don't worry, I'll tag you.
Tag me? What the hell does that mean? Check your Facebook.
I don't have Facebook anymore, I threw my phone away.
You know it's on your computer too, right? Yeah.
All right, all right.
So, I hear there's a Make-A-Wish kid in the house tonight.
Yeah, right here.
Right here! Yeah! Here he is! There he is.
There he is.
Ladies let's make that kid's wish come true! Hi.
All right.
Now repeat after Dee I wanna rock Rock! - I wanna rock - Rock! - I want to rock - Rock! - I wanna rock - Rock! "Turn it down", you say Yes! Daniel-san.
Where's Chozen? He had to teach a class.
Hopefully he goes a little easier on them than he did on me.
I hope you both learned something from each other.
I think so.
I guess that was your plan, huh? A friend of yours? A friend of ours.
- I'm sorry, I don't, um - Don't worry.
It's been a long time since we met.
I was a child then and it was during a typhoon.
You take Mr.
Sato back.
I'll get the girl! Give me your arm! We're okay.
Hang on.
- Yuna? - You remember? Are you kidding me? How could I forget? Oh, my God! How have you been? And your English is so perfect! I've been good, thank you.
I work in international sales.
Perfect English comes in handy.
Sales? Wow.
That's great.
Same here.
Well, maybe not for much longer, but Who do you work for? Doyona.
What? You work for Doyona? Senior Vice President of Sales for Doyona International.
Like Auntie Yukie said "Put good out into the world and good will come back to you".
Miyagi was right for loving her.
So, Yuna.
Can I buy you a drink? I should hope so, Daniel-san.
I'm about to save your business.
Hello? Is anyone here? We're closed, darling.
But if you've got a youngster you'd like to put on the list for karate lessons, I'd be happy to help you.
Is one of those lessons how to jump a bunch of kids and break one of their arms? 'Cause that's what your students did tonight.
Did they? Must've had it coming.
Like my daughter deserved it when one of your minions attacked her at the high school? Ah! That must make you Mrs.
What's the matter, little Daniel's not man enough to fight his own battles anymore? Hey, Rambo.
Kids are getting hurt.
So call off your band of karate thugs or I'm going to the police.
Got it? You're a feisty one.
But I like that.
I like it I don't give a shit what you like.
You're a sociopath.
And I'm shutting you down if it's the last thing I do.
- Do it again, do it again, do it again! - Okay, okay, okay! Oh, my God! Thank you so much! It was all the kid.
Told you he was a fighter.
Don't get too cocky.
We still gotta get you out of that chair.
- Yes, Sensei.
- All right.
Well, good night.
Now, what the hell is a tag? Awesome.
What's this?
