Best of the Best (1989)
Dae Han: [during the awards ceremony, slowly hobbling towards Tommy Lee and putting his medal around Tommy Lee's neck] To save a life in defeat is to earn victory and honor within. Your brother too, was a great fighter. I deeply regret your loss, and I offer myself as your brother.
Tommy Lee: [Putting his head down and tearfully crying. Raises his head back up and accepts his apology]
Coach Couzo: [to Wade as she confronts him after seeing Tommy's brother on tape] This has nothing to do with winning; if those boys do their best and fail, I'll still be proud, but if they don't give it their all and I don't give them mine, then it's my failure and my disgrace. In fact, that's exactly what happened to Tommy's brother. You saw that tape? I was the coach of that team, Ms. Wade. And back then, I didn't have the heart to give them rules and drive them to the edge to the point where they hated my guts! Tommy's brother died because I failed; he was not prepared. And I will never let that happen again, EVER!
Alex Grady: Tommy! No! Coach! Coach! He's gonna kill him!
Tommy Lee: I wanna kill that son of a bitch.
Alex Grady: Then kill that son of a bitch.
Tommy Lee: Alex! I'm afraid!
Coach Couzo: My name is Frank Couzo. To you, I am either Coach, or Mr Couzo. Starting tommorow, you are mine for the next three months. That means no women, no alcohol, no drugs. You will eat, sleep and shit competition.
Coach Couzo: You've worked very hard. All of you. You've grown, as athletes and individuals. You've learnt a lot. We've ALL learned a lot. As Miss Wade would say; a teacher also learns from his students. Today, you have the chance to be the greatest martial artists in the world. It's up to you. If you give everything you've got, EVERYTHING, you'll be winners. That I promise you. You can be the best of the best.
Alex Grady: It's late Tommy!
Tommy Lee: Dae Han is training just as hard.
Alex Grady: Yeah, but even Dae Han get sleep.
Tommy Lee: Are you sure about that?
Alex Grady: [after having bad shoulder badly separated] Pop it, Pop it Tommy, POP IT!
Burt: I want him, I want his balls!
Travis Brickley: Yeah, I thought you were missing a pair, asshole!
Tommy Lee: [after the bar fight] I didn't want to fight.
Alex Grady: All I wanted was a beer. Shit happens.
Commentator: [after Dae Hawn has been knocked down by Tommy Lee and Dae Hawn's eye patch fell off exposing his deformed eye] This could be it! This could be it! If he doesn't get up, it's a technical knockout! The American team will win this tournament!
Travis Brickley: Yeah! Drop him like a toilet seat, Tommy!
Alex Grady: [after being kicked off the team] Coach. Coach. Hey Frank! You want me to beg? Okay, I'll beg. This is the only thing I know I am good at! Don't take that away from me!
Coach Couzo: [attempting to convince Tommy that he made the right choice] You won that match, don't ever forget that.
Tommy Lee: [Remains silent, putting his head down after a regrettable defeat]
Sae Jin Kwon: Alexander Grady... Portland, Oregon... I know all about you.
[Removes his medal and places it on Alex]
Alex Grady: Sae Jin Kwon... Seoul, Korea... I know all I ever wanna know about you.
Sonny Grasso: My name's Sonny. Sonny Grasso. My friends call me Sonny. I'm Italian.
Virgil Keller: Virgil Keller. I used to be Italian. Now I'm a Buddhist.
[Sonny is shocked]
Virgil Keller: . Just kidding, I was never Italian.
Sonny Grasso: I knew that.
