Cobra Kai (2018) s04e08 Episode Script

Party Time

That's hot.
Morning, Greg.
No! It isn't.
You know why? Because some freeloader was blaring shitty Metallica all night.
Yeah, that was actually Exodus’s Bonded by Blood, but it's not your fault you don't know the genre.
You do know your sister doesn't want you crashing here, right? She only took pity on you because you are an unemployed man baby on probation.
I'm actually off probation now.
I'm showered and groomed.
I have somewhere important to be today.
Oh, well, that's good.
Good for you.
That means you can take your perfect circle of a body and roll your sloppy ass out of our neighborhood.
Step it back a smidge.
You drive a Miata.
Think you're the King of Egypt? I don't know about cars, but I know that's not top of the line.
This is coming from a man who has a squirrel obstacle course in his backyard.
Do you have any friends, Raymond? I believe it was Emerson who said that "a friend is the hope of the heart.
" Yeah.
Well, it was Hughes who said, "Get your goddamn Frisbees off my roof or I'm calling the police.
" Hughes because it's your last name? Clever.
Listen, those are Aerobies, Greg.
They're not Frisbees.
Different disc.
I-I don't have time to talk about that 'cause my dojo needs me.
So… - Got to go.
- That's right.
I forgot, Raymond.
You like to hang with a bunch of kids and play kung fu all day.
It is pathetic.
It's not kung fu.
It's Cobra Kai.
And it's not Raymond anymore.
My name is S Stingray.
Yeah, I know.
And as much as you try to clean your life up, you still stink, Ray.
Stink-Ray! That is so much more appropriate! Stink-Ray! Tread carefully, Greg.
You mess with a Cobra, you get the fangs.
Time for class.
Listen, John.
I just want you to know I haven't forgotten what you did for me.
I wouldn't be here if not for you.
And I'll do anything to prove my loyalty.
Let's go to work, Sensei.
Guys, the limo is coming at six.
So don't be late or else we're leaving.
'Cause my date and I, we on a mission.
Oh my God.
I bet she doesn't even exist.
- Hey.
- Hey.
You're, uh… You're gonna go? To prom? Yeah, right.
Let the rich kids have their stupid party.
- Can you picture me in a ballroom dress? - All right, class.
Fall in.
Today's lesson is about balance.
Not the way Miyagi-Do teaches it.
You're going to learn how to get inside the heads of your opponents and throw them off balance.
Pair up.
Ais! You know, you should go.
Crashing you-know-who's big night would be a way to get your opponents off balance.
- Not as much as if you showed up.
- I’m not a student.
They won't let me in.
Maybe they would.
If you went with me.
Did you just ask me to prom? Strictly a tactical move.
Well, it’s such short notice.
We’d have to get a ride.
Still need a tux.
I think it's a great idea.
And if you're going, you're going in style.
Wassup! Remember that from the old Bud commercials? I guess you guys were too young for… Probably weren't even born.
Eddie, what's going on, man? Hey, good to see you.
Dieter, how's your mom doing? Wish she'd call.
You could've had a really cool stepdad.
Sensei! Sir, I am reporting for duty and I require no thanks.
Thanks for what? Oh, uh, you know, just defending the dojo and I-I served my time, Sensei sir.
Look, we're trying to train for a tournament.
Let's carry on, everyone.
The All Valley tourney.
I'm well aware.
Say, listen, I got a couple of good ideas.
Just basic strategy.
Don't be ridiculous.
You were never part of this team.
You're a buffoon.
A joker, an embarrassment.
You have no value here.
Wow, what? But, Sensei, I'm, um, one of the guys, you know.
You will never be Cobra Kai.
You get that? Oh, wait, wait, w-wait, I got you.
Th-This is, um… This is a test, right? Yeah, this is a test.
Get the hell out of here.
Challenge accepted.
Why are you cutting the mozzarella? You're gonna dry it out.
- You're losing the juice! - I'm making bruschetta.
Let the juice out so the bread don't get soggy.
- Let me get in there.
- I’ll bite your fat fingers off! - But you disrespect - Louie’s sister's more Louie than Louie.
I get nervous having family over while we’re dealing with the Anthony crisis.
I know.
Bullying is the last thing I ever thought we'd be dealing with.
Yeah, well, two more weeks in his room with no screen time and he’ll get the message.
If he doesn't, maybe we take him to a professional.
Whatever happens, can we keep your mom out of this? - I'm finally on stable ground with her.
- Okay.
These are dinner napkins.
I'm gonna swap 'em out for something a little more appropriate.
Whatever you like, Lucille.
My house is your house.
Hey, come on in.
- Make yourselves at home.
- Amanda.
- Oh, hi.
- Hi.
It's good to see you.
Oh, you look very dashing.
Okay, here she comes.
Wow, you, uh, look so amazing.
So do you.
I guess, um… Can't believe we finally get a night to ourselves.
No karate, no rivalries.
Just, uh, you and me.
Picture time.
Let's go.
Diazes, get together.
You look so handsome.
He looks more and more like his father.
So, uh, how you been, man? - H-How's your weekend going? - I'm fine.
You know, I don't hang out with those biker guys anymore.
So… Uh, Johnny.
Come on.
Let's get the LaRussos together.
Anthony! - Uh, no, he doesn't need to come down.
- Oh.
Thought I was supposed to stay in my room? Who told you to stay in your room? He's grounded? What happened? Ma, we'll talk about it later, okay? Okay.
All right.
Everybody now.
One big happy family.
Let's go.
- Find your spot.
- Even Louie can get in the picture.
One, two, three.
Well, looks like it's just us tonight.
What should we do? Uh, is that a trick question? I meant for dinner.
Not a trick.
Uh, ooh, maybe I'll make un hornado de chancho.
Who's that? Shannon, this is… Carmen.
His girlfriend.
I'm… Robby's mom.
Can we talk? It's nice to meet you.
- What's going on? - Don't you have a phone? Yeah, inside.
All right, look, this rich guy, Silver, he came by my apartment today and he gave Robby a car to take to prom, saying that him and his date were gonna go first class all the way.
- Robby's going to prom? - That's not the point.
He gave me this.
Said he wanted to make sure Robby was taken care of.
Said he'd find me a new place to live.
Even offered me a job.
Doing what? I didn't ask.
But if there's one kind of person I know, it's a rich guy who wants something.
Son of a bitch.
I tried to talk to Robby, but this guy, he has his hooks in him.
Since this is Cobra Kai or whatever, you need to handle this.
Don't worry.
I will.
Woo! Dude, this sucks.
Prom without a date is like Halloween with no candy.
There's no point.
I mean, at least we're not the only ones in for a boring night.
I heard Logan Wang's after-party got canceled.
His brother got in some middle school fight.
That supposed to make us feel better? That everyone else's night is ruined? Yeah.
It’s literally the definition of "misery loves company.
" Demetri.
Oh, my Jessica Rabbit! W-What are you doing here? I just flew in.
- W-What about your dad's wedding? - Oh, I'll get back in time.
You're more important.
I even flew economy plus, which is total shit.
The seats don't even lie flat.
You really do like me, huh? Oh, you have no idea.
Come on, let's go dance.
Yes, my queen.
I-I gotta, you know.
Woo! Let's go! - Hi.
- Hi! I can't believe you're here! High heels? No, no.
It's the flying tornado kick Johnny had me practicing.
Don't understand how I'm gonna use it.
I thought we said no karate talk? Right, right.
Tonight is just about us.
Oh my God.
I said no, all right? I'm telling you, cuz, she's really good.
She's in her second year of grad school for child psychology.
- Who is? - Uh, Cousin Vanessa.
-She wants to help out with Anthony.
Oh, no offense, but if we were gonna get a pro, we could do better than Marisa Tomei Junior.
I am offended.
I'm gonna make you eat those words.
- Hey, Ness! Nessa! Come here! - Louie.
Hey, sis, tell them what you told me about Ant.
I mean I can't say for sure what his deal is.
- That's fine.
- That's too bad.
My educated guess would be environmentally-induced Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, possibly related to a screen dependency, or full-blown IGD.
I’d want to look at the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.
It’s an evolving science.
Uh, okay.
Uh, well… Have at him.
He's… upstairs.
Second door on the left.
Oh, that's not how this works.
I don't wanna talk to him.
I wanna talk to you.
You think changing the lock's gonna stop me? Come out, you sons of bitches! Hello? Mr.
Breaking and entering, are we? I don't know what your deal is, but you keep your cars and your cash away from my son.
Prom is a special night.
Did you even know he was going? Look, as long as Robby's with me, I'm gonna take care of him.
Oh, and I gotta say, Shannon? She is a special lady, and deserves so much better.
Listen to me, you ancient piece of shit.
Whatever you and Kreese are up to, I’ll kick both asses to the nursing home.
I would love to see you try.
Corner of Magnolia and Lankershim.
You know it well.
Hey, what are you up to? They're watching us.
Let's put on a show then.
What? Um, sorry.
So it's fair to say you didn't consider the ramifications of giving him his own electronics.
Would you say that because of your demanding work schedules, and now the dojo, that Anthony may have learned key life lessons from the Internet rather than from you? Um, I wouldn't go that far.
I wouldn't… I mean… Um, no, I'm… Well, listen, I'm sure he's picked up some things we didn't realize, but… no.
And when he picked up these "things," as you call them, were you able to correct the behavior? Uh, look, we discipline when it's appropriate.
I mean, too much even.
- Hm.
- But not too, too much.
Just… - Like a… - Hm.
Okay, I’m sorry, how many stones do you plan on throwing from your glass house? I'm curious if you've ever taken care of anything bigger than a goldfish.
What are you writing? See, this reaction is at the root of the problem.
Excuse You're acting out.
No, no, we're just working through this.
We're not acting out.
I can prove it with a simple test.
Now, why do you think you love your daughter more than your son? Wha… - Wha… - Mm-hm.
What? Give me that pad! You failed.
It's been a long time since this place has been a dojo.
They're putting it up for sale.
I think it was a candle shop.
This place was always good to us.
And it will be again.
After we win the All Valley.
Going back to our roots.
Right here.
When it was just you and me.
And I've got my agent looking for other locations for when we expand.
- Expand? - That's right.
I'm making our dream a reality.
We're just one tournament victory away.
Well, Terry, I can tell you, as far as surprises go, this is a good one.
This is not your only surprise.
Tournament's coming up in a week.
I'm with Eagle Fang Karate.
You may have heard of it.
It's pretty badass.
Hey, Bert.
- I'll be right back.
- Mm-hm.
Bert! - What are you doing here? - Sorry, you scared me.
I need your help, man.
I'm trying to rejoin Cobra Kai.
I'm not in Cobra Kai anymore.
What? I gotta get back.
The slow dance is when I make my move.
Wait, I heard that you guys lost your after-party pad.
Is that true? Yeah.
So? So Stingray's got a move for ya.
My place.
Come to 7010 Halbert.
Tell everybody, okay? - You're a good dancer.
- Thank you.
My, uh… My mom was a dancer.
That wasn't an option for me.
I had to teach myself.
You're still pretty good.
You'd win a karate competition before a dance one.
I hope so.
I mean, all these Encino kids have their whole lives cut out for them.
I'll never have that.
But if I could just win this one time, I could look at that trophy and know I was best at something.
That's stupid.
No, it's not.
I mean, I get it.
Are they still watching? I don't care.
Me neither.
- Sam.
- What? You brought me to the old dojo? Come on out.
That’s what you get for betraying your sensei.
You got him to come here? I had to prove my loyalty.
You wanted to get back at him, right? Well, here’s your chance.
What about focusing on the tournament? I am focused.
The only way that loser has a shot at winning the tournament is with the Diaz kid, right? How’s that kid’s confidence gonna be when he sees his sensei beaten to a pulp? It’ll totally throw him off balance.
Just like your lesson.
Unlike him, I actually heed your lessons, Captain.
-Hi-yah! Woo-hoo! You see this? Looks like LaRusso taught him some defense.
Okay, pretty boy.
Let's go.
Let's see what you learned.
Guess you didn't learn much, huh? You wanna see some more? Let him go.
We agreed to settle this at the tournament.
And that's where we're gonna do it.
What happened to "no mercy"? You know, I thought you knew better than to question me.
I thought this is what you wanted.
Party time! - Ready for a refill? - Yeah.
Come on.
I guess Moon's not coming.
I'm sorry.
Did you say something? Come on, let's check out the rest of the house.
-I'll race ya! No more hard stuff for me.
I learned my lesson.
- I'm just gonna grab a beer.
- Okay.
Grab me one too.
I'll find snacks.
Whoa! The day the music died.
What's going on? Guys, turn it back on.
There are families on this street trying to get some sleep.
If y'all don't go home right now, you are gonna get arrested for underage drinking.
Okay, relax.
Hey, guys! Hey, hey! You don't have to leave! It's fine.
He's my neighbor.
What are you doing here? You weren't invited.
You should leave right now.
Okay, no one listen to this speed bump of a human.
This is a loser, everyone.
That's why he's partying with you, because he has no friends his own age.
I warned you, but you just had to push it and make it personal.
I did, Stink-Ray.
And you know what I'm doing right now? I'm gonna start pushing these buttons and I am gonna call the cops.
Ow! It's not Stink-Ray.
Also, this is really gonna sting.
So's this.
Oh! Did you see that? Party on.
Stingray, Stingray, Stingray, Stingray, Stingray! Stingray, Stingray, Stingray, Stingray, Stingray, Stingray, Stingray! Hey.
Look, I know this suspension and the no screens thing sucks.
But not as much as it sucks to be bullied.
So I hope you understand why these consequences are necessary.
We're trying to help you to grow into the person we know you are, Anthony.
I know it's been crazy around here this last little while and that part, that's on me.
This tournament stuff made me lose focus on the things that are most important.
Actually, I'm, uh… I'm looking forward to the tournament.
You know, I hope you guys win.
Okay? Screw Cobra Kai.
Well, on that we can agree.
What is that? We said no more screens.
Are you hearing anything we’re saying to you? Give me that, Anthony.
It’s not even an iPad.
It barely has games.
This doesn’t count! - Dad, are you insane? Do you know - Quiet! You're gonna learn to listen to us and do as you're told, and if you don't, you'd better strap yourself in for a rough ride because I am done playing games with you.
Do you understand me? Yes.
You better.
Seems like you’re always behind me in line.
First Miguel, now Robby.
I have a half-eaten cupcake if you want some.
You know, I’d kick your ass, but I promised your mom that I wouldn’t.
Stay the hell away from my family.
I don't take orders from tiny, little bitches.
-Sam, stop! What are you doing? What Johnny said! Not taking her shit anymore! - No! - Get off of me! - No! - Let me go! - Get off her! - Stop! -You think I broke your heart? You broke mine too! Oh! You think my dad cares about you? He’s trying to feel better for screwing up with me! Oh, we're jumping in the pool? This is the greatest night of my life! Cannonball! Wow, you managed to stay dry.
Can you help me out? What was that? Tonight was supposed to be for you and me.
You ruined it! What? What? Why are you taking her side? Same reason you've been staring at her? Let's not talk about the moment you had with Robby, huh? I wanna go home.
Me too.
Sensei, you got a second to talk? I've been having a real rough night.
You around? -Oh shit.
Not again.
Sensei! Oh, come inside, come inside.
- What happened? Why'd you drink so much? - Old man can kick.
I don't know what that means.
Let's get you up.
Come on.
-Put your legs up.
There you go.
Hey, hey, hey! No, no, no! - Oh, I'm sorry.
- You're fine.
I was already wet.
- Me too.
- Okay.
From pee.
Look, um, you're good here.
I'm going to bed.
We can talk in the morning.
Wait, wait, listen, listen.
I want… I wanna be a father to you.
I really do.
I try to protect you.
I try to be there for you.
I just suck at it.
I really suck at it.
But I want to so bad.
You're doing just fine.
I love you.
I love you too, Robby.
That hook kick was awesome.
Did you throw that blind? I could throw that in my sleep.
But I think the highlight of my night was still your dance moves.
It's a good thing we practiced that twirl, it came in handy.
I can’t believe Sensei Silver let us borrow this car.
Yeah, I know.
Gotta return it tomorrow, though, so… Same with this.
Nice! -Hopefully, it's all dry by then.
I guess we should get our money's worth.
- Hey, see Sam yet? - No, she’s still conked out in her room.
Anthony? What are you doing? I was just, uh, taking out the trash.
You're just taking out the trash? Without anybody asking? For the first time in your whole life? Listen, I, uh… I screwed up, okay? I did some dumb things to that kid and it went way too far.
Okay? And… And I really do feel bad about it.
I heard what you said, Dad, and, you know, maybe I could help out, you know, in the dealership or hang out in the dojo again, if-if that’s cool? Yeah, well, that's, um… That would be cool.
Well, I don't know what kind of Miyagi magic you pulled, but it worked.
Questioning you? Questioning you? No mercy.
I proved my loyalty.
Oh! Hey, hey, hey! Mr.
Vice Sensei.
How goes it? Ooh, is that a Technogym? I think Dwayne Johnson has one of those in his bathroom.
Hey! What do you think you're doing? Sensei Kreese was clear.
Get the hell out.
I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I think he's incorrect.
You ask any of the students here, uh, what they think of Stingray, and th-they want me on the team, sir.
So you wanna be Cobra Kai? Yes, Sensei.
I've already proven myself to my peers, but now I'm gonna prove myself to you, sir.
How bad do you want it? I want it more than anything else in the world, sir.
It's literally all I want.
It's all I think about.
I-I'll do anything, please.
You wanna be Cobra Kai? Ooh.
So you wanna be Cobra Kai, huh? You wanna be Cobra Kai? -You wanna be Cobra Kai? You wanna be Cobra Kai?
