The Karate Kid (1984 version, duh!) was the first movie my parents ever taped off of HBO once they bought their first VCR.  It really was simpler times.  My crazy sister and I would watch this movie over and over and over (and over) again and can pretty much recite the entire movie word-for-word.  Needless to say, our parents are beaming with pride.  So here’s our 16 favorite quotes from The Karate Kid (in no particular order).
