Kung Fu Panda (2008) Poster


Randall Duk Kim: Oogway



  • Po : Maybe I should just quit and go back to making noodles.

    Oogway : Quit, don't quit... Noodles, don't noodles... You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.

  • Oogway : My friend, the panda will never fulfill his destiny, nor you yours, until you let go of the illusion of control.

    Shifu : Illusion?

    Oogway : Yes.

    [points at peach tree] 

    Oogway : Look at this tree, Shifu. I cannot make it blossom when it suits me, nor make it bear fruit before its time.

    Shifu : But there are things we *can* control.

    [kicks the tree so that peaches fall] 

    Shifu : I can control when the fruit will fall!

    [he slices a peach and throws the pit to the ground] 

    Shifu : I can control where to plant the seed! That is no illusion, Master!

    Oogway : Ah, yes. But no matter what you do, that seed will grow to be a peach tree. You may wish for an apple or an orange, but you will get a peach.

    Shifu : But a peach cannot defeat Tai Lung!

    Oogway : [folding dirt over the peach pit]  Maybe it *can*, if you are willing to guide it, to nurture it. To believe in it.

    Shifu : But how? How? I need your help, master!

    Oogway : No, you just need to believe. Promise me, Shifu. Promise me you will believe.

    Shifu : I... I will try.

  • Oogway : One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.

  • Oogway : There are no accidents.

    Shifu : [sighs]  Yes, I know. You said that already. Twice.

    Oogway : Well, that was no accident either.

    Shifu : Thrice.

  • Oogway : My time has come.

    [hands his staff to Shifu] 

    Shifu : What? What are you...?

    Oogway : You must now continue your journey without me.

    Shifu : No! WAIT! Master! You can't leave me!

    Oogway : You must believe...

    Shifu : MASTER!

    [in a haze of peach blossoms, Oogway ascends to the heavens] 

  • Oogway : There are no accidents.

  • Oogway : [walking towards Po]  Ah! I see that you have found the Sacred Peach Tree of Heavenly Wisdom!

    Po : [Po turns around with a lot of peaches stuffed in his mouth]  Is that what this is? I'm so sorry! I just thought it was a regular peach tree!

    Oogway : I understand. You eat when you are upset.

    Po : Upset? I'm not upset. Why, what makes you think I'm upset?

    Oogway : So why *are* you upset?

    Po : [sighs]  I probably sucked more today than anybody in the history of kung fu. In the history of China. In the history of sucking!

  • Shifu : But who? Who is worthy to be trusted with the secret to limitless power? To become the Dragon Warrior?

    Oogway : I don't know.

  • 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?

  • Shifu : Master! I have... it's very bad news!

    Oogway : Ah, Shifu. There is just news. There is no good or bad.

    Shifu : Master, your vision. Your vision was right! Tai-Lung has broken out of prison! He's on his way!


    Oogway : That IS bad news.

  • Oogway : Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, but Today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.
