[First Lines, Grand Master Oogway meditates in the Spirit Realm...]
Oogway: Inner peace... inner peace... [a peach blossom petal lands on his nose] Itchy nose... [gently blows the petal away, but it flies back onto his nose; he sneezes, and it flies off] Finally. Inner peace... [sensing a blade coming at him] Now what? [catches the blade with eyes still he opens them, he sees a second blade coming. Using the first, he deflects both back to their owner...] Kai, old friend!
Kai: [catches the returning blades] Master Oogway.
Oogway: [bewildered] Our battle ended 500 years ago!
Kai: Well, now I'm ready for a rematch.
Oogway: Took you long enough! [laughs]
[Angered, Kai charges at Oogway, cutting through the floating rocks between them; Oogway manages to dodge]
Oogway: You've grown stronger. [draws a symbol with his chi energy and launches it at Kai, who is unharmed]
Kai: 500 years in the Spirit Realm, you pick up a thing or two. [indicates his collection of jade pendants] I have taken the chi of every Master here!
Oogway: [gasps, horrified] No...!
Kai: Yes! And soon, I will have your power, too!
Oogway: When will you realize the more you take, the less you have? [Anchoring himself with his chainblades, Kai smashes two floating rocks together on top of Oogway, whose chi shield dissipates; the chains wrap around Oogway, and he begins to petrify into jade]
Kai: With your chi, I will finally be able to return to the mortal world. [pulls the chains holding up his green swords] And this time... you won't be there to stop me.
Oogway: [warmly] Ahh... it was never my destiny to stop you. I have set another on that path. [Oogway petrifies completely, and his chi is absborbed by Kai; all that remains of Oogway is a small jade pendant]
Kai: Then I will find him... and take his chi, too...
Po: Who are you?
Li Shan [muffling]: Li Shan.
Po: What?
Li: [swallows] I'm Li Shan. I'm looking for my son. [everybody gasps]
Po: You lost your son?
Li: Yes. Many years ago.
Po: I lost my father.
Li: I'm very sorry.
Po: Thank you. [pause]
Li: Well, good luck to you.
Po: You too. I hope you find your son.
Li: And I hope you find your father. [they both walk off, everyone facepalms]
Kai: You must be the Dragon Warrior.
Po: And you must be Kai - Beast of Vengeance, Maker of Widows.
Kai: Yes! Finally! Thank you! Almost makes me want to spare your life.
Po: Oh, you want to spare me? How about you spare me the chit-chat, alright? Let's do this.
Kai: I'm going to take your chi, then the chi of every panda in the–
Po: Augh! Chit-chat.
Kai: In the–
Po: Chitty-chitty-chat-chat, chat-chat-chat!
Kai: In the–
Po: Chit-chat!
[When Po is warned by Tigress that Kai is coming to the Panda Village, he walks up to his father]
Po: You need to teach me the secret chi technique now!
Li: No, no. I'm afraid you need more time. [to the pandas] Everyone, go get your things!
Po: I don't have more time! I need to learn it now!
Li: Sorry, you're not ready. [to the pandas] Pack everything!
Po: I am ready!
Li: Not quite.
Po: [follows him on the bridge] What are you talking about? I've done everything you've asked. I've mastered napping, sleeping in, hammocks, hot tubs. I am totally at one with my panda parts! Why can't you show me now!?
Li: Because I don't know it!
Po: [becomes shocked at what he said] You... what?
Li: I don't know it, okay? No one does! Maybe we used to, but... but not anymore.
Po: You lied?
Li: No, I... Yes.
Po: Why?
Li: To save your life! I find out some blade-swinging maniac was coming for you. What am I supposed to do, just let that happen?!
Po: Yes! I'm the Dragon Warrior, facing maniacs! That's my job, but because of you, I left the valley unprotected. I left my friends unprotected, and now they're all... They're all... (They're all gone...!)
Li: And you would have been, too! I lost you once, I am not going to lose you again. I can't. [tries to take Po to his hut, but he pulls away from him]
Po: You just did. [storms off]
Tigress: This isn't going to work.
Po: It has to.
Tigress: You're not thinking straight.
Po: I am!
Tigress: [kicks his feet] You're not.
Po: I am.
Tigress: No.
Po: Yes, I am.
Tigress: No, I've seen Kai. I see what he can do.
Po: But he hasn't seen what I can do. [Po does the Wuxi Finger Hold again, just like in the first film]
Tigress: [confused] The Wuxi Finger Hold?
Po: (What?) It's my best move. I just have to get to Kai, grab his finger, and then, skadoosh, back to the spirit realm.
Tigress: [squeezes his hand] He has an army of jade warriors. Everything they see, he sees. So, there's no sneaking up on him. [pushes him down] He'll never get close enough.
Po: It's gonna work. [gets up, but Tigress puts him down and puts her feet on him]
Tigress: He can only be stopped by a master of chi.
Kai: Who are you?
Po: I've been asking the same question - am I the son of a panda, the son of a goose, a student, a teacher? Turns out... I'm all of them. [creates a Dragon avatar with his chi] I am the Dragon Warrior. Get it?! See the giant dragon!? [laughs] Get ready to feel the thunder! Whoa! This is awesome!
[from trailer]
Po: Master Shifu? Good time, bad time?
Shifu: Time is an illusion, there is only the now.
Po: So now is a... good time?
Shifu: Oh!
[with Oogway's chi, Kai departs the Spirit Realm, and appears in a field; 2 farmers, a rabbit and a goose, cower in fear at him]
Kai: What is this place?
Rabbit: [uneasily] Uh... my brother's farm?
Kai: Ah. If I stepped on you, would you die? [both cower; the goose, terrified, lays a pile of eggs]
Rabbit: Y-yes...
Kai: The Mortal Realm. [to the jade pendant of Oogway around his neck] You hear that, Oogway? I'm back! KAI HAS RETURNED!
Rabbit and Goose: ... Who?
Kai: Kai. General Kai, supreme Warlord of all China!
Goose: I don't know.
Kai: The Jade Slayer. Master of Pain. You may know me as "the Beast of Vengeance". [still no reaction] Uh... Maker of Widows?
Goose: Huh?
Kai: [exasperated] Okay, I used to work with Oogway--
Rabbit and Goose: Oh, Master Oogway!
Goose: He was a great warrior!
Rabbit: We've heard of Master Oogway, he's a--
Kai: [cutting them off] Okay, okay, enough, SILENCE!!!
[Outside an abandoned ship, after Masters Bear and Croc have run in to confront Kai]
Mantis: You gotta get in there.
Crane: But Master Shifu said–
Mantis: You seriously afraid? Even Master Chicken is going in there, and he's a chicken! [Master Chicken clucks, pulls out his wing blades and runs inside the abandoned ship]
Shifu: If you only do what you can do, you'll never be more than you are now.
Po: I like who I am!
Shifu: You don't even know who you are!
[from trailer]
Li: [wheezing] I am your father. Why are there so many stairs?
Mr. Ping: Why is he breathing like that? It's creepy!
Shifu: You must take the next step on your journey, from warrior to teacher.
Po: But I'm no good at it!
Shifu: You're terrible at it!
[At the Jade Palace, an arrow with a scroll flies towards the courtyard, but is caught in midair by Monkey; a number of other arrows surround Shifu as he reads another scroll]
Monkey: It's from the Eastern Province! [hands Shifu the arrow]
Shifu: Master Lizard, Master Ox, Master Eagle... all of them. [snaps the arrow in half] In every village from the sea to here, every Master in China... has vanished.
Monkey: Maybe they are all at a party?
Viper: Monkey!
Monkey: I didn't get invited either.
Shifu: Kai has taken their chi. We are all that stand between him, and the knowledge Oogway left in our care. [to Tigress] The villagers, evacuated?
Tigress: Done, Master.
Shifu: Crane, Mantis?
Tigress: Still nothing.
Viper: [gasps] Wait, it's them! [Crane and Mantis fly in...but on closer look, they're both jade zombies]
Shifu: [horrified] No! [the jade Crane and Mantis land in front of Shifu and the others - as a large figure emerges in the mist, blades whirling in his hands] Kai!
Kai: [looks at the giant statue of Master Oogway] Nice. Very tacky.
Shifu: How dare you set foot on these grounds?!
Kai: [sneering] Look at you pathetic fools. Groveling at the feet of Oogway the Magnificent.
Tigress: You are not fit to speak his name!
Kai: I am not fit, little kitten? [Tigress growls and tries to lunge at Kai but Shifu holds her back] I fought by his side. I loved him like a brother... and he betrayed me. {calmly} Now, I will destroy... [shouting] ...everthing he has created!
[As Kai destroys statues outside the Jade Palace]
Shifu: I will not let you destroy Oogway's memory!
Monkey: Mantis! It is me, your bestie!
Po: There's no way I can stop him!
Li: Unless you had an army of your own.
Po: You don't even know kung fu!
Li: Then you will teach us.
[Po prepares to use the Wuxi Finger Hold to send Kai back to the Spirit Realm]
Po: Sorry, buddy. Gotta send you back to the spirit realm. Skadoosh! [flexes his pinkie, nothing happens] OK... That didn't work, let me try one more time. Skadoosh! Skadoosh, skadoosh...! What the...?
Kai: Hold on, wait! It's working! No, no! [Retches, then laughs] No, it's not. Did Oogway teach you that little trick? Too bad. It only works on mortals, and I... am a spirit warrior.
[final confrontation in the Spirit Realm]
Kai: [last words before his death] It took me five hundred years to take Oogway's chi. I will have yours if it takes me five hundred more!
Po: [makes "chit-chat" gestures; his dragon avatar mimics the movement] Chitty-chitty-chat-chat, chit-chat! [Furious, Kai charges at Po, who begins to charge his chi energy] You want my chi so bad? Then take it! [channels his chi into Kai]
Kai: [his last words] Yes! The power... is mine! [the jade pendants, the chi he has collected from the Masters, begin to break away from him] Wait... no! No, it's too much! That's too much! NO!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH! [Kai begins to glow, overloaded with power, as the pendant of Oogway floats away from him] Nooooo!!! [In a flash of light, Kai is destroyed; back in the panda village, the jade pendant of Master Bear emerges from the spirit realm and shatters, releasing him]
Master Bear: [in combat stance] Who, huh, where'd he go? [Masters Chicken and Croc are returned as well, followed by Shifu, Crane, Monkey, Mantis, and Viper]
Viper: We're back!
Monkey: Besties!
Mantis: I'm still green, it didn't work! Oh, wait, that's my normal green.
Lei Lei [grabs Mantis, makes him do "kissy face" with Po's Tigress action figure] Greenie baby!
Mantis: No! Not a baby! Antenna of Fear! Antenna of Fear...
Li Shan: What about Po?
Tigress: Have you seen Po?
Viper: No... he's not here.
Mr. Ping: [worried] Po, Po? Why isn't he back?
[In the Spirit Realm, after destroying Kai, Po floats away; the jade pendant containing Oogway's chi shatters, restoring him]
Oogway: Dragon Warrior.
Po: Oogway?! Whoa! [floats right into the water, and then back up] I can't believe it! [Oogway laughs] Whoa... you are extra shiny.
Oogway: As are you.
Po: I know, right? It's like the best cape ever. When I run with it, then it looks really cool.
Oogway: It suits you. You've grown.
Po: Yeah, gotta lay off the Panda Buffet.
Oogway: Grown up. [chuckles] As I hoped you would when I sent the message to your father.
Po: It was you? You sent the universe mail?! Whoa!
Oogway: Yes. Because the universe needed you.
Po: Me? W-why me?
Oogway: You finally became the panda you were always meant to be.
Po: But... how'd you know I could?
Oogway: On the first day we met. I saw the future of kung fu... [flashback to the first movie, Oogway choosing him as the Dragon Warrior] ...And the past. [flashback to Oogway learning chi from the ancient pandas] I saw the panda who could unite them both. That is why I chose you, Po, both sides of the yin and yang... and my true successor.
[Last lines, Po returns to the mortal world]
Po: Dad. Dad. Dads!
Li/Mr. Ping: Son!
[Li Shan and Mr. Ping runs to Po, And hugs him]
Mr. Ping: Don't you go disappearing in petals ever again.
Li Shan: We thought we lost you.
Po: No, you saved me. you all did. [Po looks at everybody, Big Fun laughs] Now, come on over here!
[Everyone runs to Po]
Big Fun: Hugs!
[Tigress, Monkey, Crane, Viper, Mantis, And Everybody hugs Po]
Po: Master Shifu!
Shifu: The student has truly become the teach-- [sees Po's staff] Wait, where did you get that?
Po: Oh, this? Oogway gave it to me in the Spirit Realm.
Shifu: [sighs] Of course he did...
Po: I think I've mastered chi.
Shifu: [sighs again, facepalms] Of course you did... [looks at him hopefully] Can you teach me?
