!!Original films:
* Miyagi is doing his "catch the fly with the chopsticks" bit, and Daniel walks in.
-->'''Daniel''': What are you doing?
-->'''Miyagi''': Man who catch fly with chopsticks, accomplish ''anything!''
-->'''Daniel''': May I try? *almost immediately catches the fly* Look! Mr. Miyagi! I did it!
-->'''Miyagi''': *throws his chopsticks down in disgust* You beginner luck!
* When the monks take up Julie's wish to visit her in Boston. [[HilarityEnsues Miyagi takes them out on the town]].
* [[CrazyAwesome Zen Bowling]].
* "Mercy is for the weak. We do not train to be merciful here. Man face you he is enemy. Enemy deserve no mercy... [[spoiler: HONK!]]"
* This moment in the first film:
-->'''Daniel''': But when am I gonna learn how to punch?
-->'''Miyagi''' (rocking the boat): Learn how punch when learn how keep dry!
-->'''Daniel''': (falls out of boat, yelps)
-->'''Miyagi''' (laughing uproariously) Oh-ho, Daniel-san, you all wet behind ear! (Continues laughing, leaning back and nearly falling out of the boat)
* Julie asks Miyagi "When are you going to teach me to break boards and stuff?" Miyagi answers "[[MartialPacifist Why you want to break boards? What boards ever do to you?]]"
** It doesn't top his earlier quip in Part II. After they arrive in Okinawa and see a poster of Sato chopping a board with his bare hands, Daniel asks Miyagi if he could do that. Miyagi snarks "Don't know. Never been attacked by tree."
** Another case of Miyagi vs inanimate objects from the first film, when some hooligans leave a bunch of beer bottles on Miyagi's truck. They refuse to leave, so Miyagi chops the bottles in half with one swing, terrifying them away. When Daniel asks how he did that, Miyagi replies "Don't know. First time trying."
* Pretty much most of Daniel's reactions to Miyagi's eccentricities.
* The part where Miyagi, Daniel and Ali trick Pat Johnson into letting her be on the sidelines so she could translate Miyagi's instructions.
--> '''Pat:''' Only Teachers and Students on the competition floor sorry.
--> '''Daniel:''' Oh, but he doesn't speak English and I can't understand his instructions without her. She's his translator.
--> '''Miyagi:''' -speaks Japanese giberish-
--> '''Pat:''' What did he say?
--> '''Ali:''' He said you remind him of an uncle of his in Tokyo.
--> '''Pat:''' Well I guess it's alright.
--> '''Miyagi:''' -speaks more Japenese gibberish--
--> '''Pat:''' What's that?
--> '''Ali:''' He says you're very kind.
--> '''Pat:''' Oh, thank you.
--> '''Miyagi:''' Welcome.
--> '''Pat:''' -looks bewildered-

!!2010 film:
* Dre's mom tells him to practice his Chinese, so he turns to a Chinese guy and speaks (very poor) Chinese. The Chinese guy's response was absolute gold.
-->'''Dre''': *Attempts to say "What's your name?" in Chinese, and not doing a very good job.*\\
'''Chinese Guy''': ... Dude, I'm from Detroit.
** It should be noted that this is the part where the title card comes in, signifying that this will be a long and difficult movie for Dre.
* The last time Dre's mom tells him to pick up his jacket, she says it quietly but with such force.
--> '''PICK''' up your jacket!
* When Mr. Han tells Dre's mom that Dre is his only student, she has this sort of "Oooookay..." look.
