Po: Look, I know you're mad, but you gotta help me.
Mantis: You're still wearing the shoes.
Po: That's what I'm trying to tell you.
Po: I can't - Master Chao!
Master Chao: Ah, I've been waiting for you. Come in.
Po: Yeah, You know, Now's not really the best time.
Master Chao: Please! I've been waiting my whole life for this. I must see you perform the three needles.
Po: I'm sorry. It wasn't me, I swear. It was the shoes! They're alive! Ah, Ahh. Stay back.
Po: We'll get the shoes off you, Po.
Po: Don't. Sorry.
Master Chao: Panda, remain clam. If I approach slowly, the shoes may not see me...
Po: I think they heard you.
Po: You may be Shoes, But you ain't got no sole! I mean the shoes kind of sole, not - not the other...
Monkey: We get it.
Shifu: Po! Po, are you all right.
Po: Yeah. just... worn out.
Shifu: I'm glad to hear it. Because it's time for training.
Po: Hello? Old Warty pig lady? Anybody?
Po: The Market! It's - It's Deserted. Oh.
Po: Well, I guess if I just... them and go, I - aah.
Po: All right, you watch the needles and tell me if I come close, okay?
Po: [snickers] Okay.
Po: I don't see where - Yow-oh!
Mantis: Good first try, though.
Po: ah, my head! Ow-oh, Ow. ah-oh, oh, oh! uhh! eeh! ow. hoo. Oww. Ooh. Ow. Oh. Ow-ow-ow-ow.
Po: Maybe it really is impossible.
Po: Yeah, you'd need some magic for that.
Po: Magician, that's it! I'll go to the moshu market where they sell all magic stuff.
Mantis: Oh, yeah, That's a good - are you crazy!
Po: They sell black magic stuff, man! It's way too dangerous.
Po: Yes it is much too dangerous, and that is why I'm totally not going to go there, at all.
Po: Morning, everybody
Shifu: Well, Panda, I'm glad you were able to drag yourself out of bed to join us for today's training
Po: Actually, instead of training I thought I'd give that three needles thing a try now
Shifu: The test of the three needles is a metaphor. Perhaps you didn't quite - All right. But first - Here goes! Did you - Wanna see it again?
Po: Come on. Just for grins.
Shifu: All right. But first...
Po: Here goes!
Shifu: Did you...
Shifu: Wanna see it again?
Po: Well, there you go. So, I'm the celestial phoenix now, right? Which means I'm done with training?
Shifu: Did you just...
Po: All righty. The celestial phoenix has a date with some plum dumplings and a nap.
Po: Nope. I'm The celestial phoenix.
Mr. Ping: ah, that's... I don't know what it is.
Po: ahh. Oh, ohh! Waah! Hai, Hai, oh. uh. yuh. Wahaa!
Mr. Ping: Po, stop it!
Mr. Ping: Ah.
Po: Whoa! what was in that bowl?
Po: It's just water, Po. It's not even hot.
Po: Wow, these are some sensitive shoes.
Mr. Ping: Oh, wai - wai - wait, what about my shop?
Po: Uh, looks... nice. Lived in. Bye.
Po: What's going on
Crane: Hello! we're getting ready for master Chao
Po: Master Chao is coming?
Shifu: Po, you passed the test of the three needles. You've become the celestial phoenix. This may be the biggest event in the history of kung Fu.
Monkey: Yeah. Way go, buddy
Tigress: I've had my doubts about you in the past, Po, But you've proven yourself.
Po: Yeah, I, Uh - I guess I have. I guess I have.
Shifu: I'm proud of you panda. Very proud.
Po: I, uh - whoa! cool!
Crane: Let's hear it for Po.
Po: Man, today has been awesome.
Po: Everybody's all telling me how great I am. Master Chao's coming to see me.
Mantis: You mean, he's coming to see your shoes.
Mantis: I mention the Moshu Market, then suddenly you've got these amazing kung Fu skills. Ohh! and, New shoes. Okay, it doesn't take an abacus to do the math on that one.
Po: Come on, that's ridiculous. I don't know how you could suggest such a - please don't tell Shifu!
Mantis: Why not?
Po: He's so proud of me and he'd be so disappointed, and he'd make me start training again.
Mantis: I can't believe you'd lie to Shifu just to get out of training.
Po: I'm not lying. I'm just not telling the truth.
Mantis: Uh-huh. Shifu has to know about these shoe, Po.
Po: Mm. Ah, What the - ah! Yah! Crazy feet. Aw, I'll take the shoes back, Mantis. Just, please, don't rat me out. We're buddies, right?
Mantis: [sighs] fine. I won't tell Shifu. But until I see Those shoes off your feet and you come clean, I'm not sure we are buddies.
Master Chao: Stunning. Simply stunning. You truly are the celestial phoenix.
Master Chao: Ah, yeah, well.
Master Chao: I guess you should start saying your good-byes.
Master Chao: I - what?
Shifu: As the celestial phoenix,You have attained a greater understanding of Kung Fu than any who have gone before you.
Master Chao: And, of course, Now you must travel the land, teaching this higher form of kung Fu, spreading all that you have learned.
Po: Uh, I don't know if I've really learned...
Master Chao: You were my greatest pupil, panda. But now the pupil has become the master. Perhaps one day, I can learn from you.
Po: I-I-ah, It's the shoes. What?
Master Chao: What?
Po: These are magic shoes. I was sick of training, and I thought if I could just do the three needles that'd fix everything. So I got these shoes, But I was wrong, and I'm sorry, and - and...
Po: Well... good workout
Shifu: That was the warm-up.
Po: Whoo-yah! Ow, oh. Ow, oh. oh. Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow. Oh, oh, okay. ah. Oh, ah. Mantis. Ah, oh.
Po: Master Shifu, How much longer I... have to train?
Shifu: We're done for today.
Po: No, no. I mean, how much longer? like, six months, a year
Shifu: You don't train, you will never reach the next level
Po: There's a level higher than the dragon warrior?
Shifu: Yes. The celestial phoenix.
Shifu: It said that the celestial phoenix would be attuned to the universe that they could defeat opponent merely by looking at them.
Po: Awesome! So, how do I get to be the celestial phoenix? How!
Shifu: By training. You must train until you can pass the test of the three needles. You toss three needles into air then kick them with such precision.
Po: That one needles passes through the eye of another
Po: And strikes the third needle so precisely on its point that splits down the middle.
Po: whoa! I'm gonna be able to do that someday?
Shifu: Of course not. It's impossible. There's never been a celestial phoenix, and there never will be. That's the point. no one can ever achieve this ultimate goal. which means your training ends.
Po: Uh, but just to be clear, If I passed that the three needles test, I wouldn't have train anymore, right?
Po: Yes. in theory. But trust me, It's impossible
Po: And... and why are you all... smiling? You knew all along. Did you all know?
Po: Pretty much.
Po: Shifu told us.
Po: Also your shoes kept glowing.
Mantis: Uh, sorry, Po. I had to keep pretending I was the only one who knew so you wouldn't suspect anything.
Po: Why did you go through all of this?
Po: To get you to understand.
Po: Understand what? Oh. That fancy Kung Fu isn't worth anything if I don't work for it. If I don't really learn it, It isn't really part of me.
Shifu: And the one way to learn it...
Po: is to train.
Shifu: Exactly. Now, Why don't you take off those shoes.
Po: Because... I can't.
Shifu: Don't be ridiculous. You just...
