You Must Believe
Shifu: I... I... have... it's... it's very bad news.
Oogway: Aah, Shifu. There's just news. There's no good or bad.
Shifu: Master, your vision... your vision was right. Tai Lung has broken out of prison! He's on his way!
Oogway: That is bad news... if you do not believe that the Dragon Warrior can stop him.
Shifu: The panda? Master, that panda is not the Dragon Warrior. He wasn't even meant to be here. It was an accident.
Oogway: There are no accidents.
Shifu: [Sighs] Yes, I know. You said that already... twice.
Oogway: Well, that was no accident either.
Shifu: ... Thrice.
Oogway: My friend, the panda will never fulfill his destiny, nor you yours, until you let go of the illusion of control.
Oogway: Yes. Look at this tree, Shifu. I cannot make it blossom when it suits me, nor make it bear fruit before it's time.
Shifu: But there are things we can control. [Kicks the tree causing several peaches to fall] I can control when the fruit will fall. [One hits him on the head. Oogway chuckles] And I can control... [Tosses the peach in the air and chops it in half] ...where to plant the seed. [Punches a hole in the ground and catches the seed] That is no illusion, Master. [Throws the seed into the hole]
Oogway: Ah, yes. But no matter what you do, that seed will grow to be a peach tree. You may wish for an apple or an orange, but you will get a peach.
Shifu: But a peach cannot defeat Tai Lung!
Oogway: Maybe it can. [Covers the seed in dirt] If you are willing to guide it, to nurture it. To believe in it.
Shifu: But how? How? I need your help, master.
Oogway: No. You just need to believe. Promise me, Shifu. Promise me you will believe.
Shifu: I... I will try.
Oogway: Good. [Sees petals floating around him] My time has come. You must continue your journey without me. [Hands Shifu his staff]
Shifu: What... What are you...? [Oogway backs into the swirling petals] Master, you can't leave me!
Oogway: [Starts to vanish] You must believe.
Make Up New Words
(Po tries to take a vow of silence, when he realises he can't keep it up then...)
Po: They're right! I can't do this... I'm a blabber-mouth, a chatter-box, a yack-idy, whack-idy, a fluger-meister!
Mantis: A fluger-what????
Po: I don't know!!! See!!! I talk so much I have to make up new words!
A Level Zero
[Po sees the Furious Five up close for the first time, watching him with curious expressions]
Po: Whoa, the Furious Five! You're so much bigger than your action figures! Except for you, Mantis. You're about the same.
[Mantis gives Po a glare as one of his antennae twitches.]
Shifu: Go ahead, Panda. Show us what you can do.
Po: [uneasily] Uh, are they gonna watch, or should I just wait until they get back to work or somethin'?
Shifu: Hit it.
Po: [stalling] Yeah, well, I just ate, so I'm still digesting, so my Kung Fu may not be as good as... later on...
Shifu: Just hit it.
Po: Uh, okay. [looks over at the training dummy] What'cha got? You got nothing, cause I got it right here. You pickin' on my friends? [quickly shuffles his feet] Get ready to feel the thunder, I'm comin' at you with the crazy feet. What'cha gonna do about crazy feet? Come on. I'm a blur, I'm a blur. You've never seen bear style, you've only seen praying mantis. Or monkey-style.
[He starts chattering like a monkey; Monkey raises his eyebrows]
Po: Or snickety-snake--
Shifu: [annoyed] Would you hit it?!
Po: [stops]All right.(annoyed)
[He gives the dummy a little tap with his fist, making it lean back.]
Shifu: Why don't you try again? A little harder?
[Po punches the dummy, sending it hurtling backwards.]
Po: Ha! How's tha--?
[The dummy swings back, knocking his tooth out and sending him flying into the training hall's obstacle course. The Five start forward, but Shifu holds up his hand to stop them.]
Po: (accidentally does a split on the moving ropes) Oh, that hurts!
[A spiked pendulum swings towards him and hits him square in the face, knocking him into Crane's tilting bowl, hitting his head several times]
Shifu: [very amused] This'll be easier than I thought.
[Po spills out of the tilting bowl, and wanders to the moving arm guard section]
Po: Feeling a little nauseous.
[He pushes one arm, starting a chain reaction that causes him to get hit repeatedly in the face, belly, legs, arms...]
Po: Ow! Oh, those are hard...!
[...then in the scrotum.]
Po: Ooh-hoo-hoo! [drops to knees, rises and covers crotch] My tenders!
[In pain, he rests one hand on a moving arm, starting the whole chain reaction over again, and smacking him into the fire floor area.]
[Cut back to Shifu and the Furious Five who wince and look away as we hear fire burning and Po screaming. He slumps over next to Shifu, burnt and charred.]
Po: How did I do?
Shifu: There is now a Level Zero.
[He snuffs out a flame on top of Po's head.]
(Trying to get to his room without waking anyone, Po tiptoes through the hallway, only to trip and walk into Crane's room)
Po: Hi, you're, uh, you're up.
Crane: Am now.
Po: I was just--some day, huh? That Kung Fu stuff is hard work, right? Ur biceps sore?
Crane: (looks at his arms awkwardly) Uh, I've had a long and rather disappointing day. So, yeah. I should probably get to sleep now.
Po: Yeah, yeah, yeah, of course.
Crane: OK, thanks.
Po: It's just-- Man, I'm such a big fan! You guys were totally amazing at the Battle of the Weeping River. Outnumbered a thousand and one, but you didn't stop. And you just--
[He tries Kung Fu, only to accidentally kick a hole in the wall, leading to Monkey's room; Po peaks into the hole to see Monkey, who is now glaring at him]
Po: Oh, sorry about that.
Crane: Uh, look, you don't belong here.
Po: (sighs in disappointment) I know. I know. You're right. I don't have--I just--my whole life, I've dreamed of--
Crane: No, no, no. I meant you don't belong here. I mean, in this room. This is my room. (softly taps his bed with his foot) Property of Crane.
Po: Okay. Right, right. So, yeah, you wanna get to sleep and I'm keeping you up. We get big things tomorrow. All right. You are awesome. Last thing I wanna say. Bye-bye.
[He leaves, but remains outside the door, making Crane sigh in annoyance]
Po: (peeks his head in) What was that?
Crane: I didn't say anything.
Po: Okay. All right. Good night. Sleep well.
[Po closes the door and Crane puts his foot on his head]
Po: That seemed a bit awkward.
[Po tries to get to his room despite the creaking noise; Tigress opens her doors angrily]
Po: Master Tigress! I didn't mean to wake you, just, uh--
Tigress: You do not belong here.
Po: Yeah, yeah, of course, this is your room.
Tigress: I mean you don't belong in the Jade Palace. You're a disgrace to Kung Fu, and if you have any respect for who we are and what we do, you will be gone by morning.
[She slams her doors closed. Po, clearly hurt by her words, gropes for a response.]
Po: [weakly] Big fan...
