The Karate Kid is a nostalgic part of American 80s culture and when Netflix reunited Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) in the show Cobra Kai, they struck TV gold! Many of the original The Karate Kid cast have appeared in the show.

Cobra Kai is most assuredly a comedy-drama, and some of these Cobra Kai quotes are so funny they will practically have you rolling on the floor. Johnny delivers some of the best jokes on this show!
