Kung Fu Panda (2008)
James Hong: Mr. Ping
Mr. Ping : The secret ingredient is... nothing!
Po : Huh?
Mr. Ping : You heard me. Nothing! There is no secret ingredient.
Po : Wait, wait... it's just plain old noodle soup? You don't add some kind of special sauce or something?
Mr. Ping : Don't have to. To make something special you just have to believe it's special.
[Po looks at the scroll again, and sees his reflection in it]
Po : There is no secret ingredient...
Po : [dazed] What are you pointing at? Oh! Okay. Sorry, I just wanted to see who the Dragon Warrior was.
Oogway : How interesting.
Tigress : Master, are you pointing at... me?
Oogway : Him.
Po : Who?
[Moves around, Oogway's finger follows him]
Oogway : You.
Po : What?
Oogway : [Raising Po's arm with his stick] The universe has brought us the Dragon Warrior!
Po : What?
Shifu : WHAT?
Mr. Ping : WHAT?
Mr. Ping : Noodles? You were really dreaming about noodles?
Po : Yeah. What else would I be dreaming about?
[hands a customer a bowl of soup with a throwing star in it]
Po : Oh, careful, that soup is... sharp.
Mr. Ping : Oh, happy day! My son finally having the noodle dream! This is a sign, Po!
Po : Uh, a sign of what?
Mr. Ping : You are almost ready to be entrusted with the secret ingredient of my secret ingredient soup. And then you will fulfill your destiny and take over the restaurant just as I took it over from my father, who took it over from his father, who won it from a friend in a game of mahjong!
Mr. Ping : We are noodle folk. Broth runs through our veins.
Po : But dad, didn't you ever, I don't know, want to do something else? Something besides noodles?
Mr. Ping : Actually, when I was young and crazy, I thought about running away and learning how to make tofu.
Po : So why didn't you?
Mr. Ping : Oh, because it was a stupid dream! Can you imagine *me* making tofu?
Mr. Ping : No! We all have our place in this world. Mine is here, and yours is...
Po : I know. Here.
Mr. Ping : [throws Po bowls of soup to catch] No, it's at tables two, five, seven and twelve. Service with a smile!
