Cobra Kai (2018) s03e09 Episode Script

Feel The Night

1 Bah humbug no, that's too strong I'm home! Oh! You would not believe the mob at the Century City Mall.
I have never seen Nordstrom's so packed.
But I got all my shopping done, and I managed to snag the last two iPads for the kids.
I know, I know, you don't want me spoiling them, but what can I say? They're my grandchildren.
Oh, honey.
It's so good to have you home for the holidays.
Oh, it's good to be back, Mom.
I mean, don't get me wrong, Colorado is beautiful, but you can't beat this weather.
Well, I don't know.
I love the snow.
Yeah, well, I lost that battle a long time ago.
But at least I can hope to see Miss Colorado at the Christmas party tomorrow night? Yes, of course.
I can't wait.
So, are you planning to get together with any of the old gang while you're back? You don't have to worry about me, I have some plans.
Mmm Last night was Yeah, it was.
So, where do we go from here? I don't know.
I don't have much in the fridge.
I could fry up some I meant with us.
You're my son's teacher.
I'm not sure how this works.
Me neither.
I don't wanna screw things up with Miguel.
I don't want that either.
Then again, you're pretty hot.
- So are you.
- Thanks.
So what do we do? I don't know.
It's been a while since I've been in this situation.
What's the matter, Sensei? Can't let your guard down? Or too scared? I have to get to work.
I'm working late tonight, covering for a friend.
But maybe we can talk more when I get home? - Definitely.
- Okay.
"Hey, Johnny.
Sorry it took me so long to write back.
Things have been crazy over here.
I love the new pictures.
"I'm actually in town for the holidays".
"Want to get lunch?" So, this is the guy that founded Miyagi-Do? That's Mr.
- He taught my dad everything he knows.
- Oh.
Like how Sensei Lawrence learned everything from Kreese.
Miyagi was nothing like Kreese.
Miyagi taught karate the right way, focusing on defense.
Yeah, but sometimes the best defense is more offense.
This is the problem.
Our styles are so far apart.
Your sensei will never see eye to eye with my dad.
I think it's the other way round.
What's this? An Okinawan hand drum.
What does it do? I'll show you.
Try to hit me.
I'm not gonna try to hit you.
What? Scared you're gonna get beat by a girl? All right.
Here it comes.
Not bad! But I got some secret moves of my own.
- Oh, really? Do you? - Yeah.
Here, put your arms out.
And then, just See? Impossible to defend.
Whoa, whoa, whoa! - Dad! - Sorry.
Uh Is that my drum in your pocket? Uh He rises.
Sorry you had to sleep on the floor.
Slept in rougher places.
If you want some coffee, it's not great, but it's hot.
Thanks for letting me crash here.
It was just for the night.
You stay as long as you like.
Come here.
Maybe you'll learn something.
This is called the Cobra Strike.
It consists of two moves, the lunge and the bite.
What the hell are you doing here? Hold on there.
Keene is our guest.
He's not one of us.
With the All Valley back on, we need as much strength as we can get.
We don't need him.
He put Miguel in the hospital.
He's the enemy.
You know, when I was overseas, it was hard to tell who was the enemy.
A defenseless local one minute would pull a knife on your throat the next.
But you know what I learned? What's that? The enemy of your enemy is your friend.
Quitting already? Never joined in the first place.
I don't belong here.
Oh, so you're running away? That worked out well for you last time.
I'm not running away.
I hated you for what happened to Miguel, you know.
I hated Sam LaRusso.
I hated everyone.
I hated myself the most.
I didn't have the luxury of running away.
Sensei Kreese taught me that if you take all that hate and you channel it it makes you stronger.
And it feels good.
Listen, a bunch of us are getting together after class.
You should come.
Or you can run away again.
- What would you like? - I'll have the vegan mung dahl bowl, with spiced carrots, turmeric cauliflower, coconut yogurt.
- Excellent choice.
- "Vegan mung dahl bowl" Vegan mung dahl bowl.
Vegan vegan Hi, Johnny.
- Ali.
- Hey.
- Awkward hug out of the way.
- All right.
This is so weird.
You look amazing.
Oh, thank you.
So do you.
God, when was the last time we saw each other? - I think it was senior year.
- Senior year.
Must've been after the, um - Point.
Winner! - All right, Daniel! You're the best! Yeah, after that.
Hi there.
Are you two ready to order? - Um, uh You go first.
- Uh, sure.
I'll I'll have the vegan mung dahl bowl, with spiced carrots, turmeric cauliflower, and coconut yogurt.
And for you, ma'am? Um, I don't know what a mung dahl bowl is, so, um, I, uh How's the cheeseburger? - That's my favorite.
- Great.
I'll get that with fries.
You know what? - Make that two.
- All right, you got it.
Well, there he is.
Look, I'm sorry, Dad.
I should have told you that I invited Miguel over.
New rule, if you're gonna bring boys over to the dojo, leave the door open.
Come on, Dad.
It's not 1984.
Look you're growing up.
You're a young woman now.
Okay? I get it.
I just feel like in this past year, there's been Kyler, Miguel, Robby, now back to Miguel.
Seems like you've more drama in your life than you need.
And just imagine if Robby knew Miguel was back in the picture.
Oh, no.
Sam, really? He came by last night when I was here with Miguel.
And he saw you two No! God, Dad! What? I saw it! I know it's been a lot.
Can you please try to remember that I'm still your daughter? And that you can trust me.
It's not you I don't trust, Sam.
Miguel's changed.
He's a good person.
He's not Cobra Kai's number one bully.
He's not even in Cobra Kai anymore.
Maybe you're right.
Okay, we've got one shot at this.
Quick, in and out, we'll be good.
- You know what you gotta do? - Hell yeah.
- Let's go.
- All right, sweet.
Someone took their sweet ass time.
- You invited him? - I did.
What you got a problem with that? Here you go, Keene.
I'm good.
What, you can't handle a sip of beer? Nah, I just don't need to drink to pretend to be cool.
Yeah, that's funny.
All right.
Let's get going.
Don't worry.
It's not gonna violate your probation.
You got outta juvie, not Sing Sing.
You resorting to peer pressure? Yeah, it's kinda my thing.
The zoo? Why do we have to sneak in? You'll see.
Come on.
This way.
Oh, my God, that's right.
We were stuck on that Ferris wheel For hours! I can't believe you remember.
Oh my God, it was so windy.
I seriously thought I was gonna die.
Oh come on, you know, I wouldn't have let anything bad happen to you.
Oh, sure, yeah.
I couldn't tell, you were laughing so hard.
I just couldn't believe our first date was going so badly.
Well, our second date went much better.
Yeah, it did.
Yeah, it did.
Man, those were good times.
Well, it seems like things are really good for you now.
I, uh I saw on Facebook the the pictures of you and your students.
I cannot believe that you are a sensei.
Yeah, well, life after high school's been pretty good.
I'm so happy for you.
Actually, that's bullshit.
The truth is, I partied through most of my 20s.
All of 'em, actually.
And then my 30s.
Well Next thing I knew, this girl I was dating got pregnant.
I didn't know the first thing about being a dad.
I was unprepared.
And, uh, eventually, I screwed everything up.
I've ruined every meaningful relationship I've ever had, actually.
Starting with you.
Well, if it makes you feel any better, I've messed up a lot of things in my life.
Come on, you have everything.
Amazing career, beautiful family - You did everything by the book.
- Yeah, exactly.
Ali, the good doctor.
Ali, the good mom.
Ali, the good wife.
Well, ex-wife.
Greg and I are separated.
I don't know what to say.
- I'm sorry.
- Um The good news is, it's nobody's fault.
- Greg is actually a great guy.
- He's an idiot.
I love, after all these years, you can still make me laugh.
Look, Ali.
I want to apologize.
- Johnny Lawrence, apologize? - Yeah.
Look, I screwed up back in the day.
I took you for granted.
And you didn't deserve that.
I ruined our relationship, our friendship.
And worst of all, your radio.
You did mess up my radio, didn't you? You ran over it with your motorcycle.
No, I didn't run it over.
Dutch ran it over.
I just threw it.
Well, I'm sure I'm partly to blame.
I can't even remember why we were so mad at each other.
I do remember punching you in the face though.
That was fun.
- Yeah, I had that coming.
- Yes, you did.
You had a mean right hook.
Seriously, though I'm sorry.
I have an idea.
Wanna do something really fun? What do you have in mind? - She's a beaut, huh? - Oh.
Uh I don't usually see cars like this where I live.
That's what I thought too.
When Mr.
Miyagi gave me this car, I was the envy of all Reseda.
I didn't know you're from Reseda.
When I first moved out here, my mom and I didn't have two pennies to rub together.
Things were different back then.
I was jealous of all the country club kids like Johnny.
Sensei was a rich kid? Yeah, he lived up in the hills.
You didn't know that? I'm sure he must've told you all about our time back in high school? He did.
Sensei Lawrence told me about how you beat him with an illegal kick.
Hey, hey, hey, the rules state anything above the waist is legal.
Besides, you used that same kick in last year's tournament, right? What else did Johnny tell you? Welcome to the Ventura Zoo.
Join us for our behind the scenes tour for a fun and informative view on how we care for Right, there's two cameras over there.
The guard goes on break once every hour.
- We have less than five minutes.
- Okay.
Five minutes to do what? We're getting a little gift for Sensei.
You got the snake pole? Oh, shit! Snake pole, right.
I orchestrated this entire plan and you didn't bring the one thing you're in charge of? I forgot, okay? I've got a lot on my mind right now.
If I don't pass trig this semester, my dad's gonna shit in my mouth.
Just reach in and grab the snake! Are you insane? I'm not gonna stick my hand in there! - Hey.
Who's in there? - Shit! Po-po, let's go.
We gotta go.
- What the hell, dumbass? - Dude, at least I brought beer.
We failed the mission 'cause of you! Who said we failed? - No way! - Nice! You got it? Unreal.
- Let's see it.
- You serious? Hell yeah! Hey, you the man, dog! - Hey.
- Hey! He's a natural cobra, man! Hey, good shit, dog! Yeah, we got it, dude! Damn! He said I sucker-punched him? Did he not mention the fact that he knocked me down first? You were moving in on his girl.
They hadn't talked in weeks.
I had no idea Johnny even existed when I got to that beach.
All that I knew was that he broke her radio.
She was upset.
- Huh.
- I was being chivalrous.
But what about Halloween? The water hose? What? The water These guys were beating the crap out of me every other The water hose was the least of it, believe me.
And it was just sitting there.
It was so teed up.
Trust me, if you were in my shoes, you'd have done the exact same thing.
Johnny clearly overreacted to that.
I think Sensei was just upset because Ali was his first love.
Well, she was mine too.
There was just something about her.
I thought she was the one.
I guess Johnny felt the same way.
And that's what started all this.
Oh, wow, I didn't realize what time it was, I gotta get going.
Well, it was good talking with you, Miguel.
From one All Valley champ to another.
Thanks, Mr.
Hey, Sam.
Listen, I gotta meet up with Mom, okay? Do me a favor? Just put the cover back on the car.
And keep the sparring to a minimum, understood? Yes, sir.
All right.
He shook my hand.
I think that's a good thing.
If only we can get him to sit down with your sensei and talk the way he did with you.
- It'd solve a lot of our problems.
- I don't see that happening.
What is it? I have an idea.
Yeah! - Nothing but net, huh? - What net? There's no net! Oh, yeah! - Were you scared? - Yeah, actually.
- All right let's take a selfie.
- All right.
A selfie.
- Okay.
- All right.
- Ready? - Yeah.
Get close.
Oh, man.
I look like such a dork.
Oh, there we have a good one.
- Finally.
- All right.
It's not bad.
This place makes me feel like I'm 17 again.
It makes me forget we have 17-year-olds of our own.
I wanna know more about Robby.
Oh, I don't know.
Tell me.
Come on, tell me.
- You wanna know? - Yeah, I do.
Well, he's complicated.
He's complicated.
He's smart.
- Too smart for his own good.
- Mmm.
He's a heartbreaker.
Like his dad? - All right.
You got two, right? - I do.
I do.
- Tell me about 'em.
- Lucas is my oldest.
He is a very talented soccer player-slash-writer.
A very dry sense of humor.
And Ava, she was on her way to becoming a ballet dancer, and then, out of nowhere, just stops, starts playing the drums and then joins a punk band.
So, I guess you could say she's my rebel.
Oh, yeah, just like her mom.
More like her mom now.
Like her mom then too.
Yeah, I miss them.
Why, are they not here? Uh, no, Greg has them this week.
It's actually my first Christmas alone.
And my parents are so annoying.
Would it surprise you to learn that Mr.
and Mrs.
Mills do not approve of my situation? Not at all.
Yeah, I think they're more upset about the divorce than I am.
Hey, silver lining, you get to ditch "Schwarber".
That's true.
That's true.
I forgot how cold it can get in the Valley.
- Yeah.
- Mmm.
- I should get it.
It might be the kids.
- Yeah.
Get it.
- Oh, shit! I completely forgot.
- What? - What? What is it? - Ah! I promised my mom I would go to this stupid party.
I really have to go.
I'd much rather stay here with you.
It's all right.
Don't worry about it.
I get it.
Do you wanna come? Save me from the boredom.
You sure? Hell yeah, I'm sure.
Do you have a suit? Well done.
I'm impressed.
You showed fearlessness, leadership.
And those are the qualities you need to be a champion.
Good job.
You're what Cobra Kai has been looking for.
Do you see what you can accomplish when you work together? Alliances are important.
For us and our enemy.
Because you better believe that they are making alliances too.
- What alliances? - Oh, you didn't hear? Uh, Diaz and that LaRusso girl, yeah, they're working together.
Yeah, they helped save the All Valley.
They gave quite a speech.
They make a pretty good team.
Well, it's getting late.
Well, this Christmas party's turning out to be ho-ho-horrible.
Yeah, Sam.
I thought you said your parents were gonna be out for the night.
- So why aren't we throwing a rager? - Yeah.
There's a keg on the way.
It's just gonna be a few more minutes.
Can we at least put on a Christmas special? I'd even watch that creepy one with the little elf dentist.
Yeah, I'm that bored.
It's here.
What? Oh, dude.
- What the - No way! Oh, hell no! You gotta be kidding me.
What the hell are you doing here? This isn't a keg party.
I bought this hat for nothing? Wait.
You Parent Trapped us? Why? Look, I know we haven't always gotten along, but Cobra Kai is the bigger threat now.
To all of us.
We think we'd stand a better chance against 'em if we joined forces.
Two dojos are stronger than one.
- This is ridiculous.
- I know, right? Look, I know we've all done shitty things to each other.
Yeah, like breaking Demetri's arm.
- You guys started that.
- After you almost got me fired! God, I hate your stupid face so much.
If you died, I wouldn't even attend your funeral.
- This isn't gonna work.
- It has to.
We have one last chance to make things right.
Alone, we're nothing.
But if we work together, we have a shot.
If we can't get over the past, the fighting will never end.
We have to confront our enemies.
Take a right, check it out.
Forget it, man.
It's ancient history.
Hey, Johnny! This rivalry has to stop.
One way or another.
