Mr. Kesuke Miyagi
Sato


Chosen: Broken ice, or a broken neck!


[repeating Kreese's words] Mercy is for the weak. We do not train to be merciful here. A man who face you he is enemy. Enemy deserve no mercy.

Daniel LaRusso: Hey Mr. Miyagi, you know I've been thinking.
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: About what, Daniel-san?
Daniel LaRusso: That we should come with some kind of strategy.
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: For what?
Daniel LaRusso: My future, my whole tournament career.
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Miyagi already have one.
Daniel LaRusso: Really? What is it?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Early retirement.
Daniel LaRusso: You could have killed him.
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Ai.
Daniel LaRusso: Well, why didn't you?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Because Daniel-san, for person with no forgiveness in heart, living worse punishment than death.
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Ah, Daniel-san! Must've been some senior prom. What happened?
Daniel LaRusso: You mean, what didn't happen. First I let Ali borrow this car, and she redesigns my fender. And I don't know what she's done to my engine, but that ain't running right either. You know what else she's done? She tells me she's fallen in love with some football player from UCLA. Why couldn't she just lie to me or something?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Things could be worse.
Daniel LaRusso: Don't worry, they are. Last night, my mom tells me she got transferred by her company to their new branch... in Fresno! I can't believe I gotta spend my entire vacation in Fresno.
[Miyagi is examining the car, reaching under its hood]
Daniel LaRusso: You're not gonna be able to fix that.
[No sooner than the words out of Daniel's mouth than Miyagi twists something around; now the engine runs perfectly]
Daniel LaRusso: How'd you do that? What'd you do?

Daniel LaRusso: Don't those lies bother you?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: No.
Daniel LaRusso: Why not? People might think that they are true.
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Lies only become true if person choose to believe.
Daniel LaRusso: Is that an old Okinawa saying?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: No. New Okinawa saying.
Daniel LaRusso: How new?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Let's see... [pauses, pretends to think] About ten seconds.

Daniel LaRusso: Oh no, not again. Hey, I'm looking for any trouble.
Chosen: There maybe trouble looking for you.

You know... When my father died, I spent a lot of time thinking maybe I wasn't such a great son. It seemed to me like I could have listened to him a little more, spent some more time with him... I felt so guilty, you know, like he did everthing for me, and I didn't do anything for him. Then one day it occurred to me... that I did the greatest thing of all for him just before he died: I was there with him, and I held his hand, and I said goodbye.

Aha... here are the two rules of Miyagi-Ryu Karate. Rule number one: "Karate for defense only." Rule number two: "First learn rule number one."

Daniel-san, never put passion before principle. Even if win, you lose.

Out of respect for my teacher, I give you three days to mourn. When finish, I come back. You prepare to join him.

Miyagi, I wait long time for this. No tricks tonight, or tomorrow, everthing gone. Their homes. Their church. Everything gone.

Daniel LaRusso: Hey, what are you building out there?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Guest room.
Daniel LaRusso: Are you expecting company?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Nah, refugee.
Daniel LaRusso: Refugee? Oh yeah, that's great. From where?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Fresno.

Daniel LaRusso: If you and Sato fought, would your father be the referee?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: No referee.
Daniel LaRusso: Then how do you know who wins?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: The one who's dead, doesn't.

Daniel LaRusso: You think you could break a log like that?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Don't know. Never been attacked by a tree.

Sato: So coward, you return...
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: To settle affairs with father.
Sato: And with me.
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Sato, I no fight you.
Sato: Then you die as you have lived; a coward. You see your father, then you see me.

Daniel LaRusso: I don't get something. If Sato hates you so much, why does he give you time to mourn?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Because, Daniel-san, my father was his teacher. Deep in heart, Sato still know right from wrong.
Daniel LaRusso: Then why does he still want to kill you?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: [shrugging] ...Because sometimes, what heart know, head forget.
