Kung Fu Panda (2008)
Mr. Ping: We are noodle folk. Broth runs through our veins.

Mr. Ping: The secret ingredient is... nothing!
Po: Huh?
Mr. Ping: You heard me. Nothing! There is no secret ingredient.
Po: Wait, wait... it's just plain old noodle soup? You don't add some kind of special sauce or something?
Mr. Ping: Don't have to. To make something special you just have to believe it's special.
[Po looks at the scroll again, and sees his reflection in it]
Po: There is no secret ingredient...

Mr. Ping: Noodles? You were really dreaming about noodles?
Po: Yeah. What else would I be dreaming about?
[hands a customer a bowl of soup with a throwing star in it]
Po: Oh, careful, that soup is... sharp.
Mr. Ping: Oh, happy day! My son finally having the noodle dream! This is a sign, Po!
Po: Uh, a sign of what?
Mr. Ping: You are almost ready to be entrusted with the secret ingredient of my secret ingredient soup. And then you will fulfill your destiny and take over the restaurant just as I took it over from my father, who took it over from his father, who won it from a friend in a game of mahjong!

Po: But dad, didn't you ever, I don't know, want to do something else? Something besides noodles?
Mr. Ping: Actually, when I was young and crazy, I thought about running away and learning how to make tofu.
Po: So why didn't you?
Mr. Ping: Oh, because it was a stupid dream! Can you imagine *me* making tofu?
[laughs airily]
Mr. Ping: No! We all have our place in this world. Mine is here, and yours is...
Po: I know. Here.
Mr. Ping: [throws Po bowls of soup to catch] No, it's at tables two, five, seven and twelve. Service with a smile!

Po: [dazed] What are you pointing at? Oh! Okay. Sorry, I just wanted to see who the Dragon Warrior was.
Oogway: How interesting.
Tigress: Master, are you pointing at... me?
Oogway: Him.
Po: Who?
[Moves around, Oogway's finger follows him]
Oogway: You.
Po: What?
Oogway: [Raising Po's arm with his stick] The universe has brought us the Dragon Warrior!
Po: What?
Tigress, Crane, Monkey, Mantis, Viper: What?
Shifu: WHAT?
Mr. Ping: WHAT?

Mr. Ping: That's my boy! That beautiful kung-fu warrior is my son!
Po: Thanks, Dad.


Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)
[from trailer]
Li: [wheezing] I am your father... Why're there so many stairs?
Mr. Ping: Why is he breathing like that? It's creepy!

Mr. Ping: Your son got angry at you. Welcome to parenthood.

Mr. Ping: Sometimes we do the wrong things for the good reasons

Po: [Mr. Ping has stowed away in Po's travel bag] Dad?
Li: [thinks Po is talking to him] Yes?
Po: [sternly] Dad...
[opens the bag to find Mr. Ping inside]
Mr. Ping: Yes?
Po: What are you doing here?
Mr. Ping: What am I doing? Getting a backache! Did you have to step on every rock?
Po: No, I mean why are you here ?
Mr. Ping: What was I supposed to do, huh? What if the pandas don't have food you like? You're never gonna be able to save the world on an empty stomach. I consider my presence mission critical.
Li: Oh yes, about that. We can't share the location of the village with others. So...
Mr. Ping: Oh, you think I can't keep a secret, huh? I raised Po for twenty years before I finally told him he was adopted.
Li: Seriously?
Po: Yeah.
Li: OK, I guess it would be cruel to make you fly back.
Po: [amazed] You can fly?
Mr. Ping: I'm a bird, Po.

Mr. Ping: It doesn't mean less for me... it means more for Po.


Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011)
Mr. Ping: So, how did it go? Did you save China?
Po: Yep.
Mr. Ping: Well, I knew you would! That's why I had these signs made! "My son saved China - you too can save! Buy one dumpling, get one free!"

Mr. Ping: Thank you, thank you for coming to Dragon Warrior Noodles and Tofu!

Po: Dad, there's something you should know. While I was gone, I found the village where I was born. I found out how I ended up in that radish basket.
Mr. Ping: You did?
Po: I know who I am.
Mr. Ping: [nervously] You do?
Po: ...I'm your son.
Mr. Ping: Oh...
Po: [picks him up and hugs him] I love you, Dad.
Mr. Ping: I love you too, son.

Mr. Ping: Oh, Po, your story may not have such a happy beginning, but look how it turned out. You got me, you got kung fu, and you got noodles!

Tigress: Don't worry Mr. Ping. He'll be back before you can say "noodles".
Mr. Ping: [stands there worried, while the the five and Po go to save China] "noodles"

Po: Sorry, excuse me, coming through. Dad! I'll protect you from that... pen?
Mr. Ping: I need you to autograph your stuff.

Po: Dad, they're handmade scale replicas with kung fu action! I made them the day I fell in love with kung fu! I have to find them!
Mr. Ping: Po, it was an accident!
Po: [Po starts searching the village frantically] Where are they?
Oogway: Accident... or destiny? Little does Po know that it was just such an *accident* that brought the Furious Five together all those years ago. This is the story of how the Five came to be.

Mr. Ping: So, how did you do?
Po: Oh, I've made a mess.

Mr. Ping: An emperor.
Po: [gasps] Can I?

Po: I just... I don't know what I want to do.
Mr. Ping: Hm, I know what you can do: take out the trash.

Young Po: This is terrible.
Mr. Ping: Yes, they're leaving before breakfast.
Young Po: No, Dad, if I hadn't poisoned Shifu with my food, then none of this would have ha... ppened.
Mr. Ping: Po? You cooked that meal for Shifu? So Shifu ate noodles from Ping's Noodle Hut?
