Kung Fu Panda (2008) Poster


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?

    Tigress , Crane , Monkey , Mantis , Viper : What?

    Shifu : WHAT?

    Mr. Ping : WHAT?

  • Mr. Ping : That's my boy! That beautiful kung-fu warrior is my son!

    Po : Thanks, Dad.

  • 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?

    [laughs airily] 

    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!
