Almost finished. ( grunting ) Mira quién llegó. Hey, guys. Mmm, it smells good in here. – Hice pollo en pipian.
– Ay, gracias, mamá. I’m sorry I’m late again. Things are crazy
at the hospital. It’s okay,
you’re short-staffed. But we saved you some food. So, did you decide
what you’re going as for the Halloween dance? Well,
I was thinking Deadpool, but the costume’s
a little pricey. Well, how much is it? Oh, it doesn’t
have to be Deadpool. You want a Deadpool costume? We’ll make you
a Deadpool costume. ( laughs ) – Oh, Miggy.
– Mm-hmm? What happened to your hand? Um… ( rock music ) What? ♪ ♪ Ah, shit. ♪ ♪ Hey, you don’t happen
to have any friends who wanna learn
karate, do you? Oh, what am I saying?
You don’t have any friends. Sorry. Hey, Sensei, when am I gonna
learn to do some kicking? I was watching
this YouTube video of this guy breaking boards
and it looked badass. Yeah, no shit.
Kicking is badass. But you’re not ready. Besides, if I don’t get
more students in here, I’m not gonna be able
to teach you anything. You’ve thought about
advertising, right? Yeah, duh.
‘Course. Okay, I gotta run
into the office. Apparently your cousin Louie
didn’t show up again. – So we’re short-staffed.
– Okay. I know that your mother said
that he cleaned up his act, but it’s just not working out. Yesterday I caught him
sticking his bare hands in the popcorn machine.
It’s disgusting. Mm-hmm. You know, Louie opened an underground
casino in the break room. Yeah. Wait, what? Sam’s gonna be fine. We met Kyler. Outside of wasting
a few bucks worth of tuna, he seemed harmless. Yeah, I’ve known plenty
of guys that seemed harmless that were real pieces of crap
behind the scenes. Come on, you’re really gonna
trust that Cobra guy over your own daughter? Louie: I say you show
this punk who’s boss. The next time he’s around,
you corner him, and you whisper in his ear, “If you get her pregnant, “you’re the one that’s
getting the abortion.” What the hell
are you even talking about? “Jungle Fever.”
The movie. John Turturro says that to,
uh–what’s his name? The black guy
with the tax problems, kills all the vampires.
Blade! I appreciate
the parental advice, Louie, but I don’t think
threatening a teenager is the go-to move here, okay? Exactly, you’re gonna drive
Sam right into this guy’s arms. Trust me, I date girls
with daddy issues. They’re the worst. – And the best.
– Louie: Okay, then. Maybe you should
keep an eye on him. – What do you mean, like spy?
– Yeah. Everything you need to know
is in this thing right here. All you need to do
is get her pass code. No, Daniel,
don’t listen to him. This is how porn stars
are created. We’re already in the Valley,
she only has to drive five minutes
to audition for Vixen Video. – Vixen Video, where is that?
– It’s on Magnolia. Guys, it’s my daughter here. I’m just gonna talk to Sam,
let her live her life. That’s the best I can do. ( school bell rings ) Blatt: Cyberbullying
is no laughing matter. Sending a cruel message
to someone online can be just as hurtful
as saying it to their face. I’m not gonna name names,
but the other day a mother called me up
because her son was crying after some kids online made fun
of his facial deformity. – The kid right there!
– The kid with the weird lip. But today, our goal here
is to make this school a safe space
for all students. You know, if you’re sick
of getting bullied, my karate dojo’s looking
for recruits. Yeah, right,
you hear that, Eli? A little karate training
and you’re gonna kick some major ass. I’m serious, Demetri,
all right? My sensei’s the real deal,
and I’m sure I could get you both discounts. As enticing as that sounds, I think we’d rather spend
our afternoons playing Crucible Control
than getting hit in the face. Blatt: Oh, and one last thing. While we’re all looking forward
to the Halloween dance, let’s make sure our costumes
are culturally sensitive. For example,
instead of “sexy nurse,” maybe try “gender-neutral
hospital employee.” – ( laughter )
– Instead of a geisha… Hey, I got a great idea
for our costumes this year. – Um…
– I was thinking… I go as sodium,
and you go as chloride. And when people ask
what we are, we do this. What is that, some dumb
inside joke you guys have? I mean,
it’s not really “inside.” Sodium chloride is table salt. Yeah, I was kidding. We actually decided to go
as Laker girls. Oh. But maybe we can order another. They’re one-size-fits-all, which suddenly seems
like false advertising. – ( snorts )
– Mm. I just need you
to bring attention to the dojo. All right? I want everybody
to see this sign. Do you want me to flash
my bits? That’ll cost you extra. No, that’s the opposite
of what I want. Nobody wants to see your bits. Just take the sign,
hold it up in the air, and spin it around, all right? Do that all day,
and you’ll get your money. Well, I want meth
and a burrito. You can spend it
on whatever you want. That’s how money works. Just do your job,
spin it around. I’ll be back later,
you got it? – Got it.

to be here at 5:00, right? Yeah, but today’s
training’s cancelled. What? Why? ‘Cause I said so. Wait, Sensei, there’s something
that I wanna show you. Look, I’m really not
in the mood. Miguel: But I think
you’ll like it. It’s a Cobra Kai webpage,
right? I made it in study hall.
Click on the snake. Miguel: Okay,
this is the sign-in page. Now, I was thinking,
maybe we can make an app where you track your progress, get a social media
campaign going, get it out
to the whole school. The possibilities are endless. – ( rock music ringtone )
– Oh. That was my mom.
I’ll call her back later. – Hey, was that just–
– Ratt? – Awesome, right?
– Yeah. I went online
and looked up Guns N’ Roses and ended up going on this
whole ’80s rock rabbit hole. That shit is dope. All right, meet me at the high school
at midnight. – Don’t be late.

how to kick ass? First you gotta learn
how to kick. ( upbeat electronic music ) I mean, I feel bad for Aisha,
but at the same time, I don’t wanna dress up
as a molecular compound. No, I totally get it. But hey, just because you guys
aren’t wearing the same costume doesn’t mean you can’t hang out
at the dance together. Mm, speaking of the dance,
I got an email from the school. They’re looking for chaperones. – They seem pretty desperate.
– Yeah, no kidding. Who wants to spend their
Friday night in a sweaty gym? Well, you’re off the hook,
I said I’d do it. ( fork clangs ) Look, come on. Counselor Blatt and I
go way back. I couldn’t leave her hangin’. – Mom.
– ( exhales heavily ) Come on, Daniel. Would you want
one of your parents at your high school dance? My mom drove me on dates, okay? Yeah? And how’d that go? – This is so not fair.
– You won’t even notice me. – I’ll be a ghost.
– Ghosts are lame. Yeah, I’m not talking
about a costume, it’s just an expression. Just promise me
you won’t embarrass me. I promise. Miguel: Sensei, what are we
doing here at midnight? Are you sure
we’re supposed to be here? Yeah, don’t worry,
my buddy’s the night janitor. Okay. All right,
let me see your hands. Here you go. Hey.
( stammers ) What’re you doing? When you’re in a fight,
