The Karate Kid Part III (1989)
Terry Silver: Look at this. Ten years ago, nuclear was the preferred waste. You could dump it anywhere! Now everybody's a detective. I'm lucky if I make one deal a YEAR without being indicted!

Terry Silver: Now the real pain begins, Danny-boy.

Terry Silver: I owe you, man.
John Kreese: You don't owe me anything.
Terry Silver: Oh bullshit. I don't owe you anything? What about Vietnam, huh? How many times did you save my ass?
John Kreese: I don't know. I lost count.

Daniel Larusso: Why do I have to do this with this thing?
Terry Silver: Because it's a part of the training. Because I'm teaching techniques that you don't have. Techniques you'll need to win the tournament. What, do you think you can rely on that crane crap?
[does a phoney impression of it]
Daniel Larusso: Well, I did pretty well with it last time.
Terry Silver: Hey, wake up and smell the coffee, Mr. Larusso. Last time you weren't fighting this.
[shows him a picture of Mike Barnes]

Terry Silver: All right, all right, I've heard enough. I've made up my mind. This slope, what's his name - Miyagi - and that punk kid - I'm gonna get them for what they did to you. They made you suffer, so I'm gonna make them suffer... and suffer and suffer and when I think they've suffered enough, then I start with the pain.

Terry Silver: [to Mike Barnes before the match] Remember the game plan. First you win a point, then you lose a point. Keep the score at zero-zero. Pulverize him for the full three minutes. Then in sudden death you get the point, we win. I want him to experience pain. First he suffers.
John Kreese: Then he suffers some more.

Terry Silver: [at the climax of Daniel's training] Visualize: this is not a bunch of sticks and pipes anymore; this is not some pathetic mugger who needs a couple of dollars so he can eat. No! This is a deadly, hungry wrecking machine who wants to detatch your head from the rest of your body and mount it over his fireplace!
[Daniel gashes his fist on the 2X4 with Mike Barnes' picture]
Terry Silver: It's blood. So what? Make believe it's HIS! This guy wants to BREAK you! HUMILIATE you! STOMP YOU INTO THE GROUND! NOW WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
Daniel Larusso: ...NAIL HIM!
Terry Silver: SHOW ME! DO IT!
[Daniel breaks all three 2X4s]
Terry Silver: YES! You nailed him! You're ready!

Terry Silver: [watching Barnes fighting Daniel] I love it when he pounds him!

Terry Silver: [in steam filled bathroom talking to John Kreese on phone] I'm telling you, we will be up and running.
John Kreese: [getting back massaged] What about the winners?
Terry Silver: Those two jerk offs are taking up all my time. But you just relax. For the boy he will compete. I'm telling you too, that he is going to be begging me to be his teacher. And what he's going to learn from me is pain in every part of his body. And fear in every part of his mind. But here's the kicker he's going to thank me for it later. Then I'm going to think he's invincible. But then when he steps out into the ring of the tournament, he's really going to find out what pain's all about.
[smiles a bit more evilly]
Terry Silver: Out in front of a thousand people. Anything else my friend you want me to do to him?
John Kreese: [looks at his hands] Yes. Make his knuckles bleed.
Terry Silver: [shocked/amazed] Hey! Johnny! I like that! I like that, my friend! I'm going to use that!

Margaret: [to Terry Silver whose taking bubble bath and smoking a cigar] And if you do not pay your bills, I will sue you for everything you are worth.
Terry Silver: [whatever type of voice] Yeah. Yeah. Look, I'll have the check out by five.
Margaret: And what about the court on the green?
Terry Silver: Do what I usually do. Bribe them.
Margaret: [astonished shockness] Mr. Silver.

[after Terry Silver met Mike Barnes]
Terry Silver: So what do you think?
Margaret: Oh, he's obnoxious.
Terry Silver: [laughing] Yeah. He's perfect.
[relaxes into bubble bath]

Daniel Larusso: [practicing karate in garden when suddenly the gate busts open]
Mike Barnes: Hey shit head! Why'd you call the cops on me?
Daniel Larusso: Why'd you take the trees?
Mike Barnes: You have no proof.
Daniel Larusso: Did the tooth fairy leave the application?
[the two fight until Barnes has Daniel on the ground]
Mike Barnes: [steps on Daniel's throat] How'd you make it last year? Much less win?
Terry Silver: Let him up!
Mike Barnes: Who are you? His mother?
Terry Silver: Maybe.
[They fight until, Terry Silver has Mike by the hair]
Mike Barnes: [afraid he's going to fall, he leans a hand on Silver for balance]
Terry Silver: Don't touch me. Don't touch me!
Mike Barnes: [shaking lets go]
Terry Silver: Now, if I ever even see you on the same street with this kid I will seriously mess you up. Okay?
Mike Barnes: Ok...
Terry Silver: OKAY?
Mike Barnes: YES!
Terry Silver: [lets him go] Good!
[kicks his butt]
Terry Silver: Now get the hell out of here!
Mike Barnes: [zooms out of garden]
Terry Silver: [helping Daniel up] Who was that guy?
Daniel Larusso: The guy I'm going to be fighting.
Terry Silver: Oh. Well, here I brought your book.
Daniel Larusso: Thanks.
Terry Silver: Now let me give you a little lesson on how to deal with punks like that.

Terry Silver: There you are.
Daniel Larusso: Yeah. I had to do some thinking.
Terry Silver: And?
Daniel Larusso: I decided not to fight in the tournament this year. I figured that's the least of respect I owe you. Just to let you know.
Terry Silver: You owe me alot more than that, Danny-boy.
Daniel Larusso: Oh, I can have the payment for the lessons in a couple of weeks. I just need to get the money.
Terry Silver: No money. You're getting in that ring and fighting the tournament. That will be how you pay for the lessons.
Daniel Larusso: Wait. Mr. Silver, you can't make me do anything I don't want to do.
Terry Silver: [laughs] Danny, Danny. Since the moment I met you, I've been making you do things you don't want to do.
Daniel Larusso: [confused] What do you mean?
Terry Silver: What do I mean?
[calls in office]
Terry Silver: Shall we show him what I mean?
Mike Barnes: [steps out] I'm what he's talking about $hit head.
Terry Silver: We have a little agenda here, Daniel.
[so excited spits out]
Terry Silver: Either you fight one day or you fight for the rest of your life.
[even more hyped up]
Terry Silver: So what's it going to be Danny boy?
Daniel Larusso: It's going to be that I'm not going to fight.
Terry Silver: You don't have to. You can just stand there and let him kick your@$$ for the whole 3 minutes.
Mike Barnes: [attacks Daniel] You're doing this to yourself.

[after Mike Barnes beats Daniel up]
Terry Silver: Do you wanna see some more?
John Kreese: I wanna see a lot more.
Terry Silver: [to Mike] Bring him back.
Terry Silver: [to Kreese] You see his face? See the trail? I think he peed in his pants.

Terry Silver: This is even funner than I anticipated

Terry Silver: You think this is the end of it, old man? I'm gonna open Cobra Kai dojos all over this Valley. Hell, I might even teach for free! From now on, all that anyone will know about is Cobra Kai karate. John Kreese's karate. You won't even be a memory!
Daniel Larusso: Yes, he will. You won't.
[Kreese and Silver are laughing hysterically, as Daniel turns to Miyagi]
Daniel Larusso: NOW... will you train me?
Mr. Kesuke Miyagi: Hai. Now Miyagi train you.

Mike Barnes: Sir, you said if I come down here and beat this LaRusso kid, I can have 25 percent ownership in you new dojos? Well, to perform my best, which I fully intend to do, I'm gonna need 50 percent.
Terry Silver: Whoa... I'm afraid I can't give you any more than 35!
Mike Barnes: I guess I'll be on my way, then... nice meeting everybody.
[turns to leave]
Terry Silver: Hey...
[Mike turns around]
Terry Silver: ... you fight as hard as you negotiate?
Mike Barnes: Harder.
Terry Silver: All right, you got it. 50 percent.
Mike Barnes: And I can get that in writing?
Terry Silver: By noon today.
Mike Barnes: Mr. Silver, you just bought yourself a champion.

Terry Silver: [speaking to Mike Barnes] If you're looking to be a bad boy in L.A., Snake's the boy to be bad with. Right, Snake?
Snake: You know it.

Terry Silver: A man can't stand, he can't fight.

Terry Silver: A man can't breathe, he can't fight.

Terry Silver: A man can't see, he can't fight.

Terry Silver: [Mr. Silver is invited to say a few words before the final match of the All-Valley Tournament] Thank you, John. Thank you very much. I've always lived my life by the rule: "If you get, you give." For the last twenty years I've gotten from karate. I've gotten discipline, health, self-confidence, inner peace, everything that makes me what I am today. And today it's time for me to give back.
[audience cheers approvingly]
Terry Silver: It's my pleasure to announce my partnership with the greatest karate man I have ever known, Sensei John Kreese.
[more cheers]
Terry Silver: Together, we are about to open a chain of Cobra Kai dojos, where young people can come and learn the same values I've learned: honesty, compassion, and fair play. Thank you all for coming, enjoy the final match.
[Mr. Silver leaves to thunderous applause]

[repeated line]
Terry Silver: Perfect!
