Johnny Lawrence: Since you joined Cobra Kai, I have been hard on you. I've called you names, I've humiliated you - some of you, I've hit. And for that, I don't apologize. Cobra Kai is about strength. If you can't be strong on the inside, you can't be strong on the outside. And right now - you're all weak. And I know that because I was you. I used to have no friends, I used to be the weird kid. Well, maybe not that weird, I still hooked up with babes 'n all but the point is - I wasn't always the badass sensei that I am today. Just like a cobra, I had to shed my loser skin to find my true power. And you guys will too.
[Eli enters sporting a new mohawk. No one recognizes him]
Johnny Lawrence: Welcome to Cobra Kai.
Miguel: Eli... what happened?
Eli: I'm flippin' the script.
Johnny Lawrence: Wait, are you the kid with the lip? Nice cut, bro! You see that? It doesn't matter if you're a loser, or a nerd, or a freak. All that matters is that You... Become... Badass! "Hawk" - fall in.
[Eli/Hawk kicks off his shoes and falls in at the front of the class next to Aisha and Miguel. The other Cobra Kais stare in awe]
Johnny Lawrence: Fear does not exist in this dojo, does it?
Eli: No, Sensei.
Johnny Lawrence: Pain does not exist in this dojo, does it?
Aisha Robinson: No, Sensei.
Johnny Lawrence: Defeat does not exist in this dojo, does it?
Miguel: No, Sensei.
Johnny Lawrence: Class! Are you ready to learn the 'Way of the Fist'?
