Quotes

Po: My fist hungers for justice! [his stomach belches] Po: That was... my fist. [from trailer] Po: Kung-fu staring contest! GO! [stares at the viewer for 16 seconds] Po: You guys look amazing, by the way... Shifu: This could be the end of Kung Fu. Po: But I just got Kung Fu ! Shifu: And now, you must SAVE it ! Po: [stares up a long passage] Ah. My old enemy... stairs! Shen: The only reason you are still alive is that I find your stupidity mildly amusing. Po: Well thank you, but I find your evilness extremely annoying! Shen: Who do you think you are, Panda? Po: Who do you think I am, Peacock? [both laugh for an extended time, each taking turns] Po: Why are we laughing? Soothsayer: Your story may not have such a happy beginning, but that doesn't make you who you are. it is the rest of your story, who you choose to be... So, who are you, Panda? Shen: How did you find peace? I took away your parents, everything, I scarred you for life... Po: See that's the thing, Shen, scars heal. Shen: No they don't. Wounds heal. Po: Oh, yeah... what do scars do? They fade, I guess... Shen: I don't care what scars do...! Po: You should, Shen. You got to let go of the stuff from past - because it just doesn't matter! The only thing that matters is what you choose to be now. Shen: Alright. Then I choose THIS! [Shen attacks Po and they fight until Shen accidentally cuts the ropes holding up his downed weapon causing it to fall and crush him] Shen: How many times do I have to kill the same stinking panda? Tigress: I hope this turns out better than your plan to cook rice in your stomach by eating it raw and then drinking boiling water... Po: This is nothing like that plan. Tigress: How so? Po: Because this one is gonna work. Po: Shen knows what happened to my parents! [pause] Po: Look, I'm going. I've gotta know. The hardcore can't understand. [Tigress lunges at Po] Viper: Tigress, no! Viper: [hugs Po] The hardcore DO understand... but I can't watch my friend be killed. [pulls away] Tigress: [to the Five] Let's go. Crane: Does that mean you can't stand to see me killed? Tigress: Stop being a wimp. Mr. Ping: My son saved China - you, too, can save! Buy one dumpling, get one free! Mantis: I didn't have any problems with my dad. Maybe it's 'cause Mom ate his head before I was born... Shen: My parents hated me. Do you understand? They wronged me. And... I will make it right! Soothsayer: They loved you! They loved you so much that having to send you away killed them! [Shen stands still in silence for some time] Shen: The dead exist in the past. And I must tend to the future. Monkey: We cannot give up hope. Po would want us to remain strong, hardcore. Right, Tigress? Crane: So this is stealth mode? Po: I mean, let's face it, not one of my stronger modes. Mantis: Fear the bug! Po: How can kung fu stop something that stops kung fu? Monkey: [On seeing a poor person being mistreated by a wolf over cooking rice] Po, do something. Po: How am I suppose to help her cook rice without getting caught?... Wait, I have a better idea! Mantis: You know, guys, I never expected to die like this. I thought I'd meet a nice girl, settle down, and then she'd eat my head. Po: [from trailer] Shen! A panda stands between you and your- [cut to Shen, who can barely hear Po say "destiny"] Shen: WHAT? [cut back to Po] Po: Prepare yourself for a hot- [cut again to Shen, who can still barely hear anything] Shen: What? Soothsayer: Stop fighting. Let it flow. Shen: Call in the wolves. All of them! I want them ready to move. The year of the peacock begins now! Wolf Boss: Right now? Cause it's the middle of the year... so you'd only get like a half of the year of the peacock. Shen: One panda exists. That does not make you right. Soothsayer: You're right. Being right GIVES me right. Shen: Then I will kill him, and make you wrong. Wolf Boss: [Po gets distracted by his Shen's symbol on Wolf Boss's right shoulder plate and gets hit by Wolf Boss's hammer, knocking him into the bunny villagers] Chew on that, tubby! Po: They must be close. I can feel a Kung Fu chill riding up my spine. Viper: Sorry, Po. It's just me. Shen: Are you willing to die to find the truth? Po: You bet I am!... Although, I'd prefer not to. Po: I threw up on the third flight of stairs, so you might want to clean that up. You guys got an evil janitor around here or something? Po: Okay, Step One: Free the Five. Viper: What's Step Two? Po: Honestly, I didn't think I was gonna make it this far! Monkey: At the first sign of trouble, I'll give you a signal. Ka-Ka! Kee-Kee! Po: You mean like Crane does? Monkey: Yeah. Crane: Excuse me? When have I ever make that noise? Mr. Ping: Thank you, thank you for coming to Dragonporium Noodles and Tofu. In the first movie, Mr. Ping tells Po he once dreamed of starting a tofu restaurant, but since their family is "Noodle Folk," he never did. Apparently inspired by his son, Mr. Ping's restaurant now sells both noodles AND tofu. Also, the restaurant's name is the obvious reference to his son, the Dragon Warrior. Po: [determined] I am Po... and I'm gonna need a hat. Tigress: [Watches Po beat up the ship's mast] The mast is not a worthy opponent [flips through the air and lands beside Po with her hand extended toward him] I am ready. Po: You! You're mine! Wolf Boss: I'll tell you what's gonna be yours. My fist in your plush cuddly, super soft face! [suddenly Monkey and Crane jump on the two wolf soldiers] Wolf Boss: Uh-oh! [he runs away] Po: Get him! Wolf Boss: [as they're fighting] Is that all you got? Cause it feels like I'm fighting a big old floppy cloud! Po: Well this cloud is about bring a thunder! Wolf Boss: [to Po as they are surrounded by wolf soldiers] Guess nobody told you, you mess with the wolf, you get the fangs! Wolf Boss: [he hits Po in the stomach] I've hit you twice. What are you gonna do now? Po: [he looks undefeated at Wolf Boss but then suddenly shouts] We surrender! Po: I'm not freaking out, I'm freaking in. Shen: Greetings, panda. We meet at... Po: [cuts in] Hey, how're you doin'? Shen: [shocked] Hey. [last lines, as a panda from far away senses something] Panda Dad: My son is alive. [the panda looks down on other pandas living in a valley] Shen: Tell me what you see in my... Soothsayer: Fortune? Shen: The future. I was going to say "future." Soothsayer: I see... I see... pain! [plucks some of Shen's feathers off him] Shen: OW! Soothsayer: Anger! [tears off a piece of his robe] Shen: How dare you! That is the finest silk in the province! Soothsayer: And denial! Shen: This is not fortune-telling, you're just saying what's happening right... Soothsayer: Now? Shen: ...Now. Soothsayer: The most important time, is now. Soothsayer: A peacock rises... to be defeated by a warrior in black and white. Nothing has changed. Shen: [enraged, then laughs] That is impossible, and you know it. Soothsayer: It is NOT impossible, and HE knows it. Shen: Who? Wolf Boss: [enters] Lord Shen, I saw a panda! Shen: A panda? [jumps on the wolf] [the Soothsayer chews on Shen's robe] Shen: Will you stop that? Soothsayer: [foretelling] If you continue on your present course, you will find yourself... at the bottom of the stairs. [Shen sees he has reached the bottom of the stairs]

Trivia

- The character Shen was originally created as a devious mayor for _Kung Fu Panda (2008)_ (qv), but was written out before production.

- According to the director 'Jennifer Yuh' (qv), Shen proved to be a great challenge to animate, so much that the complexity of the character was like that of doing six characters all at once.

- Late in the movie Master Croc leaps onto the boat and lands in a wide split position. This is a characteristic move of 'Jean-Claude Van Damme' (qv), who voices him.

- As of September 2011, this is the biggest box office success for a film with a female director ('Jennifer Yuh' (qv)).

- According to The Hollywood Reporter, screenwriter 'Charlie Kaufman' (qv) did an uncredited polish on the script. Previously, he had noted in an interview that he saw _Kung Fu Panda (2008)_ (qv) with his daughter, and was impressed by the film.

- At the end of the movie, when Po is telling Mr. Ping that he found his "real" dad, there is a sign on the wall behind Mr. Ping. It has chopsticks and a yellow slash on a red background--and looks like a "generic" McDonald's Happy Meal box. (The lower chopstick gives the illusion of the characteristic fold.) McDonald's
