Enter the Dragon script
Synopsis: Bruce Lee plays a martial-arts expert determined to help capture the narcotics dealer whose gang was responsible for the death of his sister. Lee enters a kung fu competition in an attempt to fight his way to the dealer's headquarters with the help of some friends.

Braithwaite:
Hello Mr. Lee. My name's Braithwaite.

Lee:
Hello, Mr. Braithwaite.

Braithwaite:
I've come to speak with you about a matter of great importance..

Lee:
Have some tea?

Braithwaite:
Yes indeed.....uh, this is very pleasant.

Mr. Lee, I've come to speak with you about a tournament of martial arts. A tournament to which you've already received an invitation. Specifically the tournament organized by Mr. Han.

Lee:
Han's tournament.

Braithwaite:
I know, I know, I know. But we'd very much like you to attend that particular tournament Mr. Lee.

Lee:
We? Mr. Braithwaite. It's Lao's time.

Braithwaite:
Yes of course.

Lee:
Kick me. Kick me.

What was that? An exhibition? We need emotional content. Try again.

I said emotional content, NOT ANGER! Now try again, with meaning.

That's it. How did it feel to you?

Kid:
Let me think.

Lee:
Don't think. Feel. It is like a finger pointing away to the moon. Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory. Do you understand?

Never take your eyes off your opponent. Even when you bow. That's it.

 

Main Titles

Mr. Braithwaite introduces the problem to Mr. Lee

Braithwaite:
There, that's Han. That's the only film we have on him. We know that he was a member of your temple. A Shaolin monk. Now a renegade. That's O'Hara behind him. Personal bodyguard. Tough, ruthless, as you might expect being Han's bodyguard. We got our hands on a demonstration film of O'Hara, all real bricks and boards. There's nothing phony about any of it. This was before he picked up a facial scar somewhere.

This is where you'll be going. An island fortress really. After the war, the nationality of the island was uncertain. And some time after that, Han bought it.

Lee:
What do you know about Han?

Braithwaite:
He lives like a king on that island. Totally self-sufficient. All of his efforts, seemingly, are directed toward supporting what he calls his school of martial arts. Han's only contact with the outside world is this tournament which he holds every three years.

This was stewardess, Mary King, found floating in the harbor. Nothing unusual about a body in the harbor. But this girl was last seen at a party aboard Han's private junk.. They reported her lost at sea before the body was found. We believe he selects attractive girls, and methodically builds their dependence on drugs, then sells them to an elite clientele around the world

Lee:
 What did the autopsy reveal as the cause of death?

Braithwaite:
She did not drown.

Lee:
She ODed?

Braithwaite:
Uh .....uh, yes, cause of death was uh, heroin overdose.

Lee:
I gather you still don't have enough to bust up his operation.

Braithwaite:
We know everything, we can prove nothing.

We want you to go in there as our agent. Get us our evidence.

Lee:
And come out in one piece to give it to you.

Braithwaite:
We'll give you anything you need. Electronic equipment, weapons, anything. Drink?

Lee:
No thanks.

Guns! Now why doesn't somebody pull a 45 and bang, settle it?

Braithwaite:
No. No guns. Look at this map here. As you know, the possession of a weapon is a serious offense here. Han's island rests partly within our territorial waters. If we were given the slightest reason to believe that he has any kind of arsenal, we'd move in on him. Besides, Han would never allow guns on the island anyway. He had a bad experience with them once and he's fearful of assassination. Can't really blame him. Any bloody fool can pull a trigger.
