Daniel misunderstands and excuses her for being a rich snob and behaving badly with him for not being rich with a fancy car. The statement infuriates Ali, who thought Daniel of being a different person who ended up just being the same as others. She explained how he is wrong about the social class discomfort. And Daniel realizes Ali’s denial of Johny’s kiss. Daniel, on realizing his mistake, apologizes, and Ali agrees to support him the next at the tournament against Johny. Ali is asked to stand next to the ring as she is Mr. Miyagi’s translator. And since neither of them was familiar with competitive karate, Ali became the knight in the shining armor for Daniel and explained the strategy to Daniel at the last moment. Daniel, however, reaches the end and defeats Johny, and Ali scurries Daniel to herald his victory.

But the things didn’t work out well for them, and they broke up after six months. When Daniel enters Mr. Miyagi’s home, all dressed in a tuxedo with a badly broken car, Mr. Miyagi asked what’s the situation as he was curious to know the reason behind his broken car.

Daniel finally accepts the break up and that Ali has fallen in love with some football player from UCLA. Sad Daniel didn’t want her to tell the truth, which hurt him a lot and made him furious.
