- Never dies.

- You bet your ass.

- I owe you, man.

- You don't owe me anything.

I don't owe you anything?

What about Vietnam?

How many times did you save my ass?

I don't know. I lost count.

Get the hell out of here.

Have a good trip, Captain.

The White Zone is for the immediate

loading and unloading of passengers only.


Smells like home, huh, Mr. Miyagi?


why mother not here to meet you?

You tell her right flight number?

I told her the right flight.

I just told her the wrong day.

I told her we were coming in tomorrow.

She loves surprises.

Hope so.

We take taxi apartment house.

Then Miyagi go back to work.

106 Los Angeles. Crank it up!

What are you doing in my cab?

- We just came from the airport.

- I thought that was the cab I ordered.

- Mrs. Milo, what's going on?

- What does it seem? Progress.

I got a message for you from your mother.

I told you that bum would sell the place

and you'd be out of a job someday.

You wouldn't listen to me.

- What's the message?

- What message?

- The one from my mother.

- She said call her at your Uncle Louie's.

No worry nothing, Mrs. LaRusso.

Daniel-san room all finished.

Yeah, I take good care of him.

You just look out Uncle Louie.

I might be here for a few months.

A 70-year-old man gets emphysema,

it's no joke, you know.

Are you sure there's no problem

for him to stay with you?

No problem.


Mr. Miyagi, thank you.

Welcome. Bye-bye. Here Daniel-san.

Nice mama.

You sure you don't need me there?

No. You stay with Mr. Miyagi

and start college.

I can't believe it, "Mr. College Man."

When's registration?

It's this Tuesday.

And classes start Thursday.

And when is Kumiko arriving?

She's not.

She got this great job

with a dance company in Tokyo.

I guess she just couldn't say no, so...
