El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera is an American animated television series created by Jorge R. Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua for Nickelodeon.



Sole of a Hero / Night of the Living Guacamole (1.01)

[First lines of the series; Rodolfo returns home and finds Manny and Frida lounging around in the living room]
Rodolfo: Manny, I'm home. How are you kids doing?
Manny & Frida: Bored.
Frida: There's nothing fun to do.
Rodolfo: Fun is what you make of it. For instance, today I battled giant squid creatures trying to steal the Jeweled Mule of Maya. Fun! The leader escaped with the mule, but I will find him. This I swear!
Frida: I thought you quit superheroing.
Rodolfo: Technically, I'm retired. But as long as there is evil, and I am young and vital enough to oppose it, I will.
Manny: You're super macho.

Frida: You were right. Watching you dad sleep is less boring than TV. Hey, he forgot to take his boots off. [walks up to take the Bronze Boots of Truth off his feet]
Manny: [stops her; sputtering] He never takes off the Bronze Boots of Truth. He gets all his White Pantera abilities from them.
Frida: [walks up close] Oh, yeah? And those abilities would be?
Manny: [illustrating] He can run, jump and fight, with super macho speed and strength. And anyone the boots those touch is forced to tell the truth.
Frida: [touches the boots and speaks in a hypnotic-like state] Once, after eating ribs, I wiped my hands on a dog. [takes her finger away as she breaks out of the hypnosis] Cool! Dude, we gotta take these babies out for a spin!
Manny: We can't steal my dad's boots!
Frida: Not steal, borrow. We'll put them back before he wakes up.
Manny: Hmm… I will inherit them someday, so I should know how to use them, but...
Frida: [popping over] You are a good son.

Rodolfo: [as Manny shimmies up against the wall] Manny, what are you up to?
Manny: Oh, nothing. Helping the poor. [dashes away to his room]
Rodolfo: Ah, the poor. Very good.
Manny: [sitting under his bed sheets and turns on a flashlight as he looks through a magazine] Oh, man, this so good!
Rodolfo: [bursting in] MANNY! I just spoke to the poor, and you have not been helping them.

Frida: [whispering to Manny while they stand in front of the Guacamole de los Angeles] Tattoo Maker.
Manny: Frida, I can't go home without guacamole. The giant floating tattoo dad head won't let me!
Old Woman: Perhaps I can be of assistance. I just happened to have something that might help you. [steps out of the shadows] Guacamole de los Anglos!
Manny: [unsure] I don't know. Mysterious old lady... emerging from the shadows.
Frida: Seems kind of sketchy.
Old Woman: It's free.
Manny & Frida: Sold.

Dr. Chipotle Jr.: [after tricking Manny and Frida into buying the "free" guacamole while disguised as an old woman] THE FILTHY SWINE! I remember when El Tigre and White Pantera captured my father. [flashback to that night] He was minding his own business using his jalapeño monster to rob the Miracle City Bank. And they took him! For no reason! That very night, I swore an oath of vengeance. [savagely] I... Don't... Like... YOU!!! [back to present] Now, at last, THEY WILL PAY!!!!
Supermarket Employee: Weren't you just dressed up like an old lady?

Frida: He saved us all from the evil guacamole!
Rodolfo: Thank you, Man- wait, what evil guacamole?
Frida: Duh. The free stuff we got from that creepy old lady so Manny could use your money to buy the tattoo maker. [realized what she said; disappointed] Dang!
Rodolfo: Manuel Pablo Gutierrez O'Brian Equihua Rivera, what is going on here?!
Frida: We can explain everything. See, there were these aliens, and then they grabbed my face…
El Tigre/Manny: [sighs with guilt] No, Frida, it's time to tell the truth. [45 minutes later…] And worst of all, I made you guys miss the big game.
Rodolfo: So, you stole money from me and you lied. But, you also risked your life to save us and then told the truth. [thinks for a second] Let's see, what would be an appropriate punishment?

Enter the Cuervo / Fistful of Collars (1.02)

Manny: [as Frida and Zoe Aves both glare and grimace at each other] What? You still mad at her?
Frida: [turns to Manny] Duh! Remember the finger-paint thing? [Flashback to Kindergarten where she is carrying some paint before Zoe purposely trips her, causing her to fly across the room, screaming; two paint cans tip her goggles and one entirely covers her in green paint; cries, scaring the other kids away] And the "kick-me" thing? [Another flashback to where she dodges Zoe and she slaps a piece of paper reading, "Kick me", behind her back as she walks into the Karate room, unnoticed, and a riot is heard from the other side; Final flashback shows her tapping on her locker and a bear pops out and attacks her] And the savage bear attack thing?!
[Pan over to Zoe leaning up against a bear cage from the Miracle City Zoo, chuckling deviously; back to the present]
Manny: Ah, you gotta let that stuff go, Frida.
Frida: Also, she once told everyone at school you had a perm.
Manny: [gasps in shock, then viciously enraged] SHE MUST PAY! [on the last word with a fiery background]

Zoe: How dare she not invite me to that party I would not be caught dead at! [zoom in on her face; enviously] Vendetta! Frida Suárez, I will have my revenge! [sees Manny taking his backpack out of his locker and leaves] And I'll use your best friend to get it. For I, Zoe Aves, am secretly… [transforms into her supervillain identity] Black Cuervo! [then notices a goat right next to her and points out her wrist laser cannon at it] This must remain our secret, goat.

El Tigre/Manny: [as Black Cuervo runs past him and Mrs. Chichita] Hey! Nobody crashes grandmommies in my town, you fiendish… [Black Cuervo stops and stares at him with a glare as the camera zooms in on her face] Girl?

El Tigre/Manny: [whispering from outside Frida's house] Frida!
Frida: [wakes up and gets up from her bed to the window; whispering] Where have you been?!
El Tigre/Manny: I'm only six hours late.
Frida: You're two days and six hours late! The party is tomorrow. Now go home! [turns off the lights and goes back to sleep]
El Tigre/Manny: Frida? Frida? [shouting] FRIDA!
Emiliano: El Tigre! My daughter may NOT receive visitors after 8 P.M.!

Manny: Uh, Frida? I brought you the piñata.
Frida: You did? Oh, Manny, I I knew… [shocked to see Manny's poorly made piñata] This is my awesome birthday piñata?
Manny: Ye…abe?
[The piñata rips open and falls to the ground, revealing what was inside]
Frida: Pretzels and a dirty sock?!
Manny: It still needs some fine-tuning.
Frida: Where have you been the last two days?! What kind of piñata is this?! WHAT'S THE SQUARE ROOT OF NINE?!
Manny: [confused] Square root?
Frida: I need help with my math homework, which you would know if you were any kind of friend!
Manny: If you were any kind of friend, you'd know… [takes off his eye patch and throws it on the ground, angrily] I STINK AT MATH!
Frida: You just plain STINK!
[The students react in surprise while they all surround them]
Student: You gonna take that, Manny?
Manny: Hey, if you're such a great friend, why'd I make you such a lousy piñata?
Frida: Well, since you're no kind of friend, you… you're… UNINVITED to my party! [gasps as she covers her mouth]
[Manny and all the other students gasp in shock]

El Tigre/Manny: [seeing Frida wearing the belt buckle he made for her] You're wearing the belt buckle?
Frida: My best friend made it for me.

El Tigre/Manny: No one can help you now, chica!
Black Cuervo: Think again, hero! [opens a slot on her wrist brace with a red button inside and pushes it; sound effect of a bird's cry echoes, Lady Gobbler and Voltura fly into sight, landing on both sides of her; They grab both her hands and fly off; vowing] Party while you can, El Tigre! I shall have my revenge on you! [threateningly] VENDETTA!

Manny: [searching through the garbage can] Oooh! A broken yo-yo! Buffalo jerky! [gasps] And two doorknobs.
Frida: Behold! Perfectly good roller skates made from household garbage.
Manny: It's like my dad says, [imitating Rodolfo] "You don't need money to have fun."
Frida: I even made a safety gear.
Manny: Now all we need is another pair of skates.
Frida: Pssh. We don't need anything!
Manny: This is gonna be awesome if we survive.
[Zoom out, revealing the two on top of a hill through the window of a plane]
Pilot: And on the right of the plane, you can see Manny and Frida about to do something stupid.

[After Manny and Frida earned enough money to buy LuxeBlades by returning every pet in Miracle City back to their owners]
Manny: So, all that work really paid off.
Frida: Your dad was totally wrong. You do need money to have fun. LuxeBlades, reverse somersault!
Manny: LuxeBlades, give a beat, low rider style.

Manny: [playing a video game system while riding the Luxe Scooter] This video game is so realistic!
Frida: Yeah, they totally got my goggles right.
Manny: Luxe Scooters! Could anything be better?
Announcer: Something is better. Changing course to nearest "Luxeteria." [Manny and Frida's Luxe Scooters change courses to the nearest Luxe shop and inside is an even newer product] Behold, the LuxePod.
Manny & Frida: [amazed] Ooh!
Announcer: The LuxePod. A self-contained leisure, relaxation, and entertainment environment.
Manny: It has video games from the future!
Frida: It has a built-in toilet!

Manny: Where are we gonna get the money? We've found, stolen, and returned every pet in Miracle City.
Frida: There's got to be a way to get it, 'cause we've gotta get Luxepods! [looks at the missing poster of Taco as the winds unfolds it, revealing the price from $100 to $100,000] Santa Claus!
Manny: Okay, that's enough money. We are going to Calavera! [changes into El Tigre]
[Next morning, the two best friends arrive at Calavera]
Hot Dog Vendor: You like a hot dog, señor?
El Tigre/Manny: The only dog I'm looking for is a taco.
[The Calavera banditos gasps when they hear him say the word]
Calavera Bandito: We're all looking for a taco, compadre. And I think we're hungrier than you.

Manny: I think we did the right thing. Like my dad says, [imitating Rodolfo] "You don't need money to have fun."
Frida: And check it out, I still have these. [takes out the household garbage-made roller skates she kept]
Manny: This is gonna be awesome if we survive!
[Zoom out to reveal them at the very top of Calavera; the two friends skate down the mountain and crash into a cactus field as they reach bottom, before a picture is taken of them popping out and covered in cactus thorns while laughing]

Fool's Goal / El Tigre El Jefe (1.03)

Matadors: [chanting] Matadors! Matadors! Matadors! [they get beaten up by another team off-screen and return back to their side of the field, all battered and bruised; chanting weakly] Matadors, Matadors, Matadors.
Rodolfo: Referee! That team is not of middle school age!
Manny: Dad, how can we win the championship for Miracle City if we're the only team in the league that doesn't cheat?
Rodolfo: [kneels down] Now, Manny, wouldn't you rather lose with honor than win with dishonor?
Manny: Oh, well...what was the question again?
Grandpapi: [sighs] What has become of my Matadors? When I played, we beat every team in the league.
General Chapuza: [laughs] Not every team.
Grandpapi: Aye! [coldly] General Chapuza, you old nemesis, you.
General Chapuza: Your Miracle City Matadors have never beaten my Calavera Zombies. And this year will be no different. Especially with me coaching a team led by my grandson, Che.
Che: Grandfather, when may I torment and destroy the Matadors?
General Chapuza: [patting his grandson's head] Soon, my grandson, soon. [he and his grandson leave, both laughing evilly]
Grandpapi: This year, the Matadors will defeat the zombies! THIS I SWEAR!

Manny: So, let me get this straight. If you cheat, you win. If you don't cheat, people throw rocks at you?
Rodolfo: Rocks of honor.

Grandpapi: Back in my day, Miracle City won every trophy imaginable. Except for the League Championship.
Frida: And we're not gonna win it this year with no-cheaty-petey coaching us.
Grandpapi: Then I will not have my revenge on General Chapuza. Oh, well. Nothing we can do about it, sí?

Manny: I couldn't do it. As much as I wanted that trophy, honor was more important.
Rodolfo: Yes, mijo. And someday, people will respect you from this decision. But for now… [dashes away] RUN!!!

Manny: Sancho Panza! Free toilet paper! [laughs deviously; later covers the City Hall in toilet paper as El Tigre] Ah, it's a thing of beauty.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: NO! It is a thing of ugly! Clean… now!

[At Leone Middle School…]
Manny: I am here to help. I am here to help.
Frida: Dude, that's starting to creep me out.
Mrs. Lupita: Aaron, you haven't done your homework in weeks. [sternly] This is it! Turn in your assignment tomorrow, or you will be… EXPELLED!
Aaron: No more school? Wow, thanks.
Mrs. Lupita: [serious] Young man, you need help.

Mrs. Lupita: Class, not only did Aaron do his homework, [chuckles] he got a perfect score on today's pop quiz! [places a gold star on Aaron's forehead]
Aaron: This one's for you, Manny! Thanks for helping.
[The class cheers for Manny]
Frida: You did a good thing, dude. [gives Manny a thumbs up]

El Tigre/Manny: [to a blonde haired boy as he's about to have a sloppy joe] You are wearing new white shirt and are about to eat a sloppy joe. To keep your shirt clean, from now on you will eat only crackers. Flavorless, dry crackers! [then to a punk haired boy, who's struggling to open a jar of hair dye] Lack of muscle tone is unhealthy. Do 10,000 push-ups... A day! [the boy starts doing push-ups; to a brown boy, playing with a yo-yo] Stop wasting time with that yo-yo and do something constructive, like... [tosses him a banjo] Learn to play the banjo! Play better! [to a blonde girl while hanging upside down] And you. High heels are bad for your arches. TAKE 'EM OFF! [the girl quickly takes off her high heels; to everyone in the school] El Tigre is here! To… HELP! [echoes]

Frida: Manny, you can't force people to change. But you're not doing it to me, so who cares, right? All right, let's get going.
El Tigre/Manny: Going?
Frida: Yeah, me and the Atomic Sombreros are doing a lunch concert, remember?
El Tigre/Manny: This band thing is going nowhere, Frida. You need to give it up and learn something practical, like how to tap dance!
Frada: [gasps in shock] Give up my band?! Wait, now you are doing it to me!
El Tigre/Manny: [shaking irately] I said… LEARN TO TAP DANCE! [smiles and leaves]
Sergio: Somebody should really do something about that guy, huh?
Frida: Yeah. Somebody should. [later in a closet, she assembles all the students for a meeting] People, I want Help-zilla out, and the old Manny back. And Sergio here has an idea how we can do it.
Sergio: [stepping in] I believe I know someone who can help. Someone who can… show El Tigre the error of his ways.
Frida: Like a counselor, right?
Sergio: [laughs] Yes. A counselor. [starts laughing maniacally] Uh, I, uh, I just remembered a joke.
El Tigre/Manny: [impressed by his statue] Man, I look good.
Boy: You look like a BULLY!
El Tigre/Manny: [turns around and sees Frida and all the other students madly facing him] Frida? What is this?
Frida: Manny, there's someone I want you to talk to. Where's Sergio's friend?
Señor Siniestro: [drops down in front] Here!
Frida: Ooh, this may have been a mistake.
Señor Siniestro: It's over, pardner! No more bullying these fine people!
El Tigre/Manny: "Bullying them?" I was helping them.

Frida: Pst.
Manny: You would say that.
Frida: I swear I didn't mean for this to happen, Manny. You've gotta help us.
Manny: I was helping. How could you do this to me? Don't you know you can't force people to change?
Frida: Yeah, I know that. Do you?
Manny: Of course, I- [realizes] Oh… This, this is all my fault.
Frida: Yep.
Manny: I need my belt.

Zebra Donkey / Adios Amigos (1.04)

Manny: [anxious to win] Oh, I've gotta win! Taking care of Zebra Donkey is my destiny! We have so much in common. It's like, we're the same guy.
Frida: That's beautiful, dude. But I hope you sold a lot of raffle tickets.
Manny: I sold a few.
Principal Tonino: And now, our Zebra Donkey winner is... [rips open the envelope as Manny crosses his fingers, hopefully] Manny Rivera!
[Manny screams in excitement and runs around outside the school, whooping as he's been declared the winner, and runs back inside]
Manny: WOW! I just wanna say, I'm gonna give Zebra Donkey the best Zebra Donkey week of his Zebra Donkey life! He'll remember it as long as he lives!

[Rivera house; Manny and Frida stand in front of Zebra Donkey's grave after he dies of being poisoned by bananas]
Manny: [places a flower on Zebra Donkey's grave; breaking down, tearfully] It is as if, I have lost a brother. A striped, long-eared brother. And it's all my fault!
Frida: Um, Manny? The Zebra Donkey fiesta spectacular is tomorrow.
Manny: [shouting angrily] THIS IS NO TIME TO TALK ABOUT PARTIES! [calms down] I'm sorry, I just need some time to grieve.

[Back at the Rivera house, Manny and Frida stand in front of Zebra Donkey's grave after "stealing" Sartana's mystic guitar, which might be able to bring him back to life]
Frida: [holding Sartana's guitar; unsure] You sure about this?
Manny: [kneels down on Zebra Donkey's grave; desperately] I gotta get Zebra Donkey back! He's my best… [realizes] my second best friend.
Frida: Nice say, dude.

Sartana: Thieves!
Frida: [to Manny, annoyingly through gritted teeth] Never say, "What could go wrong?"
Sartana: [summons her skeleton bandit army after getting back her mystic guitar] Steal from me and give me a bad makeover?! You will PAY!

Frida: Manny, you've gotta smash Sartana's guitar. It'll make her crumble to dust, and her banditos!
El Tigre/Manny: And Zebra Donkey!
Frida: Oh, yeah.
El Tigre/Manny: I can't lose him again! I just can't! There has to be another way!
Frida: Hypnosis. Time machine. Pixie dust.

El Tigre/Manny: Zebra Donkey sacrificed himself…
Frida: To save us all.

Manny: You ready for this?
Frida: I was born ready.

El Tigre/Frida: I'm sorry, Frida, but the only way you'll be safe is if, we don't hang out ever again.
Frida: Manny.
El Tigre/Manny: No. My mind is made up. Good-bye.
Emiliano: Oh, don't worry, mija. We will find you a new best friend... A better one.

Rodolfo: When your mother and I got married, I had less time with the Titan. Then we had you, and the decision was clear. My family was more important to me than my partnership with the Titan. So we went our separate ways.
Manny: What happened to him?
Rodolfo: He couldn't make it as a solo superhero. Eventually, he left town, and turned to a life of crime. And he blamed you for his misfortunes. Manny, I promise you, we will find this villain before he strikes again! Won't we, Father?
Grandpapi: I know just where to look.
Rodolfo: Excelente. Fear not, mijo. The Titan will not harm you.
Grandpapi: Unless he does. Bye.
Manny: At least Frida is safe. [sadly beginning to miss her] Oh… Frida.

Manny: Why would the Titan take Frida? Think, Manny. He's short, he has metal arms, he's living in the past… [gasps] Living in the past! That's it! [takes out a postcard] He's taken her to the Pantera Pit. Oh, no, it's a secret hideout! I'll never be able to find it. All is lost! All is... [finds the address on the back of the postcard] Oh, the address is on the back of the picture.

Titanium Titan: At last, I have the upper hand on Manny Rivera, who ruined my life!
Frida: Hey, poophead! Here's my impression of you!

El Tigre/Manny: Frida, this proves it's not safe to be around me. I may have saved you this time, but...
Frida: Saved me? I saved you.
El Tigre/Manny: But…
Frida: But nothing. I gotta stick around to make sure you don't get hurt.
El Tigre/Manny: Hmm... Makes sense to me. So you wanna go to the carnival?
Frida: You read my mind.

The Mother of All Tigres / Old Money (1.05)

Rodolfo: Now, Manny, we have work to do. The divine angel who is your mother is coming to visit! And we must… clean up this mess, at once!
El Oso: Why, man?
Manny: Oh, you gotta hear this story! [Flashback begins with his parents walking through the park with him as a baby in a baby carriage; narrating] When my folks first got married, Mom used to think Dad being White Pantera was cool. Then, one day…
Flashback Rodolfo: [changes into his White Pantera identity and runs over to stop El Mal Verde] Halt, fiend! So says, White- [gets smashed repeatedly by El Mal Verde's metal club; El Mal Verde laughs and walks away; holds up a thumbs up, beaten and battered as Maria runs over to him while carrying Baby Manny]
Manny: [narrating] It was the first time she saw my dad get hurt, and she totally lost it.
[Maria starts hyperventilating; Fade to giant monster creatures attacking the city, and Manny as a toddler]
Rodolfo: [narrating] Maria didn't want me to be a superhero anymore. She couldn't stand to see me in danger. But I could not ignore the crisp, clean refreshing call of crime fighting! It was in my blood! [Maria watches him getting beaten up by the giant creatures, starts sweating and hyperventilating, then pulls her hair, and screams] In the end, she could not stand it anymore. [next scene shows him tearing up with sadness as Maria packs up her bags] She had to… [sobs] leave me!
Maria: [gives Manny a kiss on the forehead and stands outside the front door as Rodolfo looks on, heartbroken] I'm sorry, but I married the man, not the mask.
[The door closes in front of her and Granpapi enters a split second later]
Grandpapi: [narrating] I moved in to make sure Rodolfo and Manny would be okay. Also because I crashed my evil headquarters of evil. Maria's career as a mariachi singer took off after that. She traveled the world, performing for adoring fans everywhere, even Luxembourg! Manny goes to visit her every month.
[Manny is seen getting his El Tigre belt and turns into El Tigre for the first time]
Manny: [narrating] I got my El Tigre belt after Mom went on tour. [flashback ends] And I, uh…haven't had a chance to tell her about it yet.
Frida: Dude, she is gonna freak when she finds out!
Manny: I know. So that's why we gotta clean. If my mom sees all this wreckage, she'll know we've been doing superhero stuff, and she'll freak out.
El Oso: [agitated] I just asked why you gotta hide stuff! You don't gotta tell me your whole story, man!
Rodolfo: Hurry! Maria will be here tomorrow! And I will once again behold a sweet goddess without whom my life has become a pit of misery. And who I never think about anymore.
Grandpapi: Didn't I tell you? Maria called to say she's coming early. She should be here in about, eh… no minutes.
[The doorbell rings and Rodolfo freezes in fear]
Frida: Move it, people! We've got evidence to hide!
[Manny, Frida, and Grandpapi rush around the house, cleaning up the mess and covering El Oso with a blanket, disguising him as a chair]
Manny: Uh, Dad?
Grandpapi: He's frozen in fear of seeing his one and only true love, who he never thinks about anymore.

Maria: [sighs] Rodolfo, you'll never change.
Rodolfo: Well, how can I stop fighting in justice when Miracle City is such a spicy cesspool of crime and villainy?
Maria: I've been thinking about that. This is such an unsafe place to raise a child. And Manny really needs his mother's guidance.

Manny: What am I gonna do? This is my home! I don't wanna leave! And I really don't want Mom to freak out about me being El Tigre!
Grandpapi: Then, we must convince Maria that Miracle City is a safe place to raise a child.
Frida: That could be tricky.

Manny: Oh, it's El Oso. [smiles in relief; then alarmed] IT'S EL OSO!
El Oso: [grabs and picks up Manny by the shirt collar; threateningly] Give me back the black platinum diamond pearl!
Maria: [groans annoyingly; fiercely] You are not stepping up on my son, you sorry, stinking DOGMAN!
Manny: [surprised] Whoa!
Frida: I want to read the book she got that from!

[Leone Middle School; Manny and Frida are in Vice Principal Chakal's office, covered in green goop]
Vice Principal Chakal: Do you have any idea how many detentions you have?
Manny: Uh, 10?
Vice Principal Chakal: [leaning forward; savagely] 136! Since there aren't enough days left in the year to serve all these, you must either work them off by doing community service, or… SPEND TWO MONTHS IN OUR SUMMER DETENTION CAMP IN THE NONAGUA DESERT!
Frida: [frightfully] Community service doesn't sound so bad.
Vice Principal Chakal: Oh, it won't be so bad. It will be… SO BAD! Your options are… clean up after frog dissections, shovel cafeteria gristle, de-clog toilets, or… Leave school early to volunteer at an old folk's home!
Manny and Frida: [sobbing] NO!
Manny: I'm sorry. Did you say leave school early?

[After Manny and Frida load Sartana's loot into El Tarantula's loot cart and blast a hole open with Mano Negra's Glove of Doom, they soon realize they're not even moving before they escape]
El Tigre/Manny: Uh, why aren't we moving?
[They turn around and see Sartana holding her grip onto the attached jet pack on the cart]
Sartana: Fools! [cackles] No one steals from Sartana of the Dead!
[Manny and Frida scream in terror and Sartana strums her mystic guitar, opening the cell doors for her skeleton banditos to attack]

Frida: I love those guys.
El Tigre/Manny: [unlocking the cell lock] They lied to us so we'd rob Sartana for them.
Frida: [in the same happy tone as before] I hate those guys.

Sartana: You're like a pathetic piñata! Let's see if you're full of candy!

The Late Manny Rivera / Party Monsters (1.06)

Manny: We can explain!
Frida: There was a fire!
Manny: At the arcade!
Frida: So we rescued-
Manny: A sick pony.
Frida: Fell down a well!
Manny: Tornado!
Frida: On the ledge!

[Manny and Frida are sent to Vice Principal Chakal's office for an amount of tardiness with both their parents]
Emiliano: It must be the boy's fault! [points to Manny]
Rodolfo: Clearly, it is Frida's fault. She is a trouble making, goggle-wearer! [points to Frida]
[As the parents argue over who's to blame, Manny and Frida get up from their seats and start to walk away]
Manny: Well, it looks like you guys…
Parents: SIT DOWN!
[Manny and Frida quickly sit back in their seats]
Vice Principal Chakal: [settling everyone down] Please, please. This is not about blame. It's about… [bangs his fist on his desk with a flaming background] REVENGE! [Manny, Frida, and their parents all look at him, confused; clears throat] Rules. It's about rules. If they are late again, even once, they will be… EXPELLED FROM SCHOOL!!!

Rodolfo: Manuel Pablo Gutierrez O'Brian Equihua Rivera, if you get expelled, we are going to send you to a charm school.
Maria: In Switzerland.
[Manny opens his mouth to scream, but is confused to see his grandpapi doing it]
Grandpapi: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! No grandson of mine is going to a charm school! Or to Switzerland! It is.... unnatural.
Rodolfo: Nonsense! It will be good for Manny. They will teach him punctuality, etiquette, and how to knit cute little tea cozies.
Manny and Grandpapi: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maria: I'm sorry, mijo, but you have to take responsibility for your actions. Make us proud.
[Little later, Manny walks into his room, sulking, and closes the door behind him before leaning against it]
Frida: [kicks the door down, which lands on Manny; frantically] If I get expelled, my parents are gonna send me to military school! Can you think of anything worse?!
Manny: Charm school.
Frida: This is serious, dude. If we get sent to different schools, we'll never see each other again. We cannot be late tomorrow.
Manny: Right. We got work to do.

Emiliano: [catches her daughter as she makes it to school on time; gladly] Frida, I knew you could do it.
Rodolfo & Maria: [concerned] Where's Manny?
[Chakal chuckles evilly, believing Manny is going to be expelled if he shows up late]
El Tigre/Manny: [facing Siniestro] Looks like I'm gonna learn to knit tea cozies.

Maria: [happily as Manny makes it to school, just in time] Manny, we are so proud of you!
El Tigre/Manny: Hooray.
Vice Principal Chakal: I was finally going to be rid of him!
Sergio: I was finally going to be rid of him!
Vice Principal Chakal: [enraged with a flaming background] YOU'RE LATE! 500 DETENTIONS!
[Sergio reacts with horror and dismay]
Frida: Everything worked out great, Manny. There's just one problem.
El Tigre/Manny: My shattered spine?
Frida: We gotta keep getting here on time every day for the rest of the year.
[Manny passes out]

Manny: Banned from the video arcade?!
Frida: We were just cooling the place off for him. Is that gratitude?
Manny: Aw, man. It's like a million degrees out and we got nothing to do now. Except, well, you know.
Frida: Watch pigeons explode from the heat? [A pigeon explodes off-screen] Yeah, I just hope I don't get a beak stuck in my hair this time.

El Tigre/Manny: Thought you could use a trim.

Frida: Too bad we got here late and they only had one costume left for you.
Manny: [wearing a princess kitten costume; dismayed] Princess Fluff-a-puff, master of the flying kittens.
Frida: Come on, you look adorable.
Manny: Never speak of this again.

The Mustache Kid / Puma Licito (1.07)

[Manny and Frida are in line at the movies to get tickets to see…]
Manny: "Chainsaw Ninjas VS. The Mutant Bloodworm!"
Frida: WHOO! This is gonna be the best movie ever!
Giorgio: [as Manny places a ladder at the ticket booth and climbs up] Sorry, no children.
Manny: Ah, but I am no mere child. I am… [spins his belt buckle and changes into…] EL TIGRE!
Giorgio: Yes? And I am… [spins his name tag] The Assistant Manager! [pushes Manny off aside] Next!
El Tigre/Manny: [offended] Oh, yeah? Well, who wants to see a lousy movie, anyway?

Manny: You sure about this?
Frida: Yeah. Mucho-grow plant food. The bottle says it'll make anything grow.

Frida: Well, you do look older. [Manny glares savagely at her; shrugs nervously] Gehhh…
Manny: I would give anything for a mustache! ANYTHING!!!

Manny: All right, Dr. Habanero!
Dr. Chipotle Jr.: [agitated] CHĪ-PÔT-LE!!
Manny: I'm gonna get my belt back.

Dr. Chipotle Jr.: You haven't seen the last of me, El Tigre! [laughs and jumps into a pipe chute]
El Tigre/Manny: Dang! Dr. Paprika got away!
Dr. Chipotle Jr.: [calling out] CHIPOTLE!!!
Frida: Nope. That's the escape hatch. He just jumped into the incinerator chute.
Dr. Chipotle Jr.: [burned and battered] I detest you people.

[After Raul detaches himself from Manny's face and flies off while Manny and Frida wave goodbye to him…]
Manny: You know, Frida, I really learned… [screams painfully] YOOOOW!!!! [falls on his back and passes out]
Frida: [satisfied] Well said, dude. Well said.

Manny: Dad! Why'd you lock us in my room with a pizza?! [notices his mother] Hey, Mom! [dashes over to her and they hug]
Rodolfo: Manny! [chuckles awkwardly] I'm so glad you're here. And Frida, too. Oh, good.

[Rodolfo and Maria speak to each other alone in Rodolfo's room]
Rodolfo: Maria, I am convinced that Manny is being led astray by his grandpapi's criminal misdeeds.
Maria: [holds up a book of "Kids Manny's Age"] Kids Manny's Age are susceptible to their grandparent's influence. It's a fact.
Rodolfo: We need to discuss the possibility of… Grandpapi moving out of the house.
Manny: [hearing his parents' discussion through the walls] No! He can't leave! Grandpapi isn't a bad influence on me.
Frida: How'd you learn to eavesdrop like this?
Manny: Grandpapi taught me.

Rodolfo: [takes a sip of coffee] Papi.
Grandpapi: [takes sip of coffee] Rodolfo.
Rodolfo: [takes sip of coffee] Papi.
Grandpapi: [takes sip of coffee] Rodolfo.

Grandpapi: How could a newspaper bring such lies?! I will make them pay DEARLY! [rips apart the newspaper in half]

Grandpapi: The policia love me? What have I done? WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!

Miracle City Worker / Dia de los Malos (The Day of Evil) (1.08)

Maria: Manny, I have a surprise for you.
Manny: You mean we didn't come to the Miracle City Mint just to watch the criminals drool?

[Manny and Maria have lunch together at Burritos Explosivos]
Manny: Thanks, Mom. Burritos Explosivos is my favorite!
Maria: [sees a bull's head on the wall] Oh, mijo, look. Remember when you were younger and that bull used to freak you out?
Manny: Mom, I was a little kid, then.
[An explosion blows the bull's head from the wall and into Manny's lap, causing him to scream terrifyingly]

El Tigre/Manny: Mom, may I be excused from the table to take El Oso to jail?
El Oso: Aw, man, I almost got rid of the prison lice. And I'm gonna bust out again, anyways.
El Tigre/Manny: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Maria: Manny, wait, he's right.
El Tigre/Manny and Customers: He is?
El Oso: I am?
Maria: Yes. Since I've been back, you fought El Oso 17 times. He doesn't need jail, he needs to change.
El Tigre/Manny: Villains can't change, Mom.

Manny: I can't believe it. They turned down every chance to steal, pillage, and punch me in the face. Maybe they really do want to change.
Frida: Yeah. Hey, how about I heat some churros. That'll cheer you up.
Manny: No, Frida. I wanna watch my mother change people for the good.

Maria: [sees the fighting and drops the cake] What's… going on?
El Tigre/Manny: Why don't you tell her, Dr. Betrayal?
Dr. Chipotle Sr.: Uh… We were just, um… We were…
El Oso: We were about to pull off the heist of the century, man. The Miracle City Mint.
Maria: But, you said you wanted to change.
Dr. Chipotle Sr.: We lied. Dr. Chipotle Sr. advises you to DEAL with it.

Frida: The churros. [cries] The churros! TAKE ME INSTEAD!

Dr. Chipotle Sr.: Dr. Chipotle Sr. is going to be sick. [Frida stuffs a churro in his mouth to shut him up, causing him to have an allergic reaction]

Hero-Meter Operator: [after Manny steps through the machine, causing it to explode while it was unable to determine if he's a hero or villain] I don't know what you are, but hero is definitely not the word for it! Now please leave before you CAUSE A SCENE!
Iron Piñata: The Hero-Meter is never wrong.
Flama Dama: You should have spent less time grooming yourself and more time grooming your successor.
[All the heroes laugh]
El Tigre/Manny: Uh, well, who cares what those stupid heroes think?
White Pantera/Rodolfo: I... don't care at all. And if they won't let you in, I'm not going.
El Tigre/Manny: No, Dad, you should go get your award. Don't miss it because of me.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: I couldn't possibly.
El Tigre/Manny: I want you to. Someone has to show those laughing hyenas that Rivera men don't back down. Right?

Manny: Oh, I hate this. There's gotta be some way I can make it up to him.
Newscaster: Breaking News: We interrupt the Celebration of Heroes to take you to the Celebration of Heroes. Sartana of the Dead is attacking the convention center.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Forget it, Sartana. You'll never get in!
Sartana: I don't have to. Because you'll never get out! [cackles as she strums her mystic guitar, creating an unbreakable force field around the convention center, trapping all the heroes]
Grandpapi: They all stuck in there? Is time for the list! [takes out his list of robberies] "Places I hasn't robbed yet. Numero #1, the place that only sells light bulbs." Have fun, children!
Frida: Super-heroes, cops, fire fighters. Every hero in the city is out of commission!
Manny: No. There's still... [spins his belt and changes into…] El Tigre!
Frida: Uh, I hate to puke in your piñata, but didn't that Hero-meter thing-y say you're not a hero?
El Tigre/Manny: Time to prove it wrong.

El Tigre/Manny: [after taking down five criminals] That's five down.
[Zoom out of Miracle City still being under attacked by an increased number of bad guys]
Frida: Two million to go.

Sartana: Soon, Quetzalcoatl's Stone will be mine! Combined with my mystic guitar… I WILL RULE THE WORLD! [enters the Hall of Gems and climbs up the steps of her banditos] At last, I will have the power I need to… [gasps as she finds the stone being replaced by a rubber duck]
El Tigre/Manny: This what you're looking for? [spinning the stone with the tip of his finger]
Sartana: Impudent boy, that stone is mine! Banditos, END THEM!

El Tigre/Manny: Sartana, I challenge you to a game. If you win, I'll give you the stone. If I win, I get your guitar.
Sartana: Oh, I love this game! Set 'em up.
El Tigre/Manny: The stone, where will she land? [hides the stone in one of the cups and shuffles them] So, is it somewhere there? Is it somewhere where? [pan up to reveal that he has hidden the stone in his nose]
Sartana: [points to the second cup in the middle] Ah-ha. There!
El Tigre/Manny: [lifts up the cup, revealing the stone is not there, to Sartana's shock] Oh, too bad.
Iron Piñata: [surprised] Incredible! Where could it have gone?
[Frida facepalms in annoyance]
Sartana: Fool! Did you really think I would give you my mystic guitar? Listen well to the music of your DOOM! [strums her "mystic guitar," which is soon revealed that Frida switched it with a broomstick]
Frida: You gotta keep an eye on your stuff when there's no cops around.

[After Manny defeated Sartana and the force field around the convention center is broken and freeing all the heroes…]
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Manny, what you did was amazing! Not the way I would have done it, but still amazing. You have proven yourself a true hero. [tears up happily] My hero.
Flama Dama: That was great, kid. We never doubted you for a second. [winks]
Iron Piñata: Like I said, that Hero-Meter is never right.

Yellow Pantera / Rising Son (1.09)

El Tigre/Manny: [hangs the three bullies up on the chandelier for calling his father a coward; venomously] It's not nice to spit lies about my father!
Bully: It's no lie. We heard the man at the bodega say White Pantera once ran away from a fight with... El Mal Verde.
El Tigre/Manny: My father is no coward! LIAR!
Maria: [off-screen] Manuel Pablo Gutierrez O'Brian Equihua Rivera!
Students: Librarian! [they all escape from the hallway]
Maria: Put down those unsanitary boys and come here, right now. [gestures to Frida as she's about to walk away; firmly] You too, Frida.
Bully: [as Manny grumpily puts him and his friends down on the floor; smugly] You lucky your mom showed up.
[Manny glares fiercely at them, causing them to scream frightfully and make a run for it, and crash into the lockers]

Manny: Those jerks insulted the Rivera family name! They made up some crazy story about Dad running away from a guy called, El Mal Verde.
Maria: [gasps in horrified shock] El Mal Verde.
Frida: Who is this guy? He sounds like bad salsa.
Maria: El Mal Verde is the biggest, meanest, most vicious bandito of all time! Every 10 years, he comes down from the peak of Mount Tortura and attacks Miracle City. Once, some superheroes went to stop him, but they… [starts to hyperventilate] Then your father, he went up, too, and…
Manny: And? AND?!
Maria: [gasping and panting] And…you should talk to him about it.

Manny: I understand that my father… is a coward!
Rodolfo: [incredibly infuriated with a fiery background over to have heard that] COWARD?! [Manny, Grandpapi, Señor Chapi, and Little Mule all gasp in shock] If that is what you think of me… [calmly] then, there is nothing left to say.

Frida: Do you have a book about guitars?
Maria: Yes.
Frida: Do you have a book about exploding things?
Maria: Yes.
Frida: Do you have a book about churros?
Maria: Yes.
Frida: Ah-ha! But do you have a book about eating churros while playing an exploding guitar?
Maria: Hmm, yes. [holds out a book entitled: "Eating Churros While Playing an Exploding Guitar, Vol. 1"]
Frida: [in tears of happiness] This is the greatest place ever!
[Just then, Manny kicks the library doors opened and enters, in a bad mood]
Maria: Oh. You spoke to your father?
Manny: Huh, you mean the coward?!
Maria: [having to hear that; sharped] Manny!
Frida: Harsh.
Manny: It's true! He ran from a fight! He tarnished our family name, Mom!

El Tigre/Manny: There's only one way I can save the Rivera name from disgrace. [walks towards the window] I must defeat El Mal Verde myself!
Maria: You will do no such thing!
Frida: That dude is way dangerous!
El Tigre/Manny: It's been 10 years. So El Mal Verde's due to attack Miracle City again. And if the coward that is my father won't stop him, it's up to me. [opens the window and heads over to Mount Tortura]
Maria: Manny, come back!
Frida: Want me to stay behind and protect your mom, okay.

El Tigre/Manny: [panting while climbing up to the top of the mountain's peak] Why'd they have to put the mountain's peak all the way at the top? [reaches the top and enters] I'll show this guy with the Riveras are really made of!
El Mal Verde: [off-screen] I hope it's chocolate. [zoom out to reveal Manny standing on top of his eyes] Hi. [Manny screams and dashes out of the mountain's peak and runs down; sniffs] You have the stench of the only hero who ever got away from me. What was his name? White Panties? I didn't get to him, but you'll do fine.

El Tigre/Manny: Capitán Águila's Helmet of Power. Loba Roja's heat ray. Dude needs to floss.

White Pantera/Rodolfo: [voice-over] I would do anything for my family! Any…[grunts]. Any…[grunts]. Any…[grunts].
El Tigre/Manny: [remorsefully as he now knows the truth] Dad didn't run away 'cause he was scared to fight. He ran away 'cause he was scared of leaving me and Mom alone! Papa! [sticks out of Mal Verde's mouth, calling out to his father] I'm sorry! I know you're no coward. You can beat him! I believe in you, Dad!

El Tigre/Manny: Dad, I'm sorry I doubted you. You're no coward. You ran away for us.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: I had to make sure I was around to raise a heroic son like you, no?
Maria: And you did a good job.
El Tigre/Manny: You're super macho, Dad.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Thank you, mijo. But we beat that bandito together.

White Pantera/Rodolfo: By the way, the samurai is bringing his son, who will be staying with us for a while, in your room. [gestures to Manny]
El Tigre/Manny: [shocked and offended] What?! I have to share my room?!
White Pantera/Rodolfo: [laughs] Of course not. You'll be bunking with Señor Chapi.

Manny: [losing it; irritated] I CAN'T STAND IT ANYMORE! We're gonna be stuck with Toshiro forever! There's no way he could beat a supervillain, never, forget it, not a chance!
Frida: Can't we buy him a practice one, like a training nemesis?
Manny: Buy one, that's it! We'll just find a bad guy we can pay to take a dive.
Frida: Here is my life savings. Anything to get rid of the mighty politey!

Curse of the Ablino Burrito / La Tigresa (1.10)

Rodolfo: [to Manny] Grandpapi told you not to touch that cane. You will come home immediately after school, and clean up Señor Chapi's cage.
[Manny shudders in disgust]

White Pantera/Rodolfo: The little donkey boy is trying to stop the giant robot? [Manny and Frida both nod yes] Then he's our only hope. Go, little donkey boy. GO!
El Tigre/Manny: Davi, you can maybe do it!
Frida: All right, Davi! Hit… anything!

Sartana: [after Frida throws a potato at her in the face] A potato? That's the best you can do?
Frida: Um…yes?

Frida: [spins the belt buckle and turns into…] LA TIGRESA!

Manny: [snatches the magazine out of Frida's hands] La Tigresa? Claws, a tail, and a belt? She's totally copying my whole…me! [angrily rips up the magazine into pieces] What kind of low-down, bottom feeder steals a guy's GUY?!

Sartana: [attaching Manny's El Tigre belt to her mystic guitar as a guitar strap] I've been needing a new guitar strap for a long time now. [to Frida] So, this must be the 10th time I've captured you this month.
Frida: [sighs remorsefully] I'll just take my usual cell. Hey, who messed up my cards?

Manny: [wakes up, noticing Frida is gone] Frida? [hops off from the sofa and his pants fall down from his waist, seeing his El Tigre belt is missing and gasps] My belt! Wha…?! [compares the newspaper of Frida in her bear incident and the magazine of La Tigresa on the cover; shocked in realization that…] Frida's La Tigresa! Man, the blue hair totally should've tipped me off.

Manny: [whispering] Can't believe you stole my belt.
Frida: Manny! How'd you know where I'd be?
Manny: Are you kidding?! You spend more time here than Sartana does.
Frida: [upset] I'm sorry I took your belt, Manny. I wanted to feel powerful, just for once.
Manny: Then how come you took it for twice?
Frida: Why are you whispering anyway?
Manny: So Sartana doesn't hear… [yelps as Sartana catches him and holds him up]
Frida: MANNY!
Sartana: Ah, the one true Tigre. You will make a fine skeleton bandito. Once I strip off all your bothersome flesh! [sharpens her razor-sharped claws as Frida frees herself from her cell] Now you know how it feels to be powerless, eh?

Frida: Sartana, never underestimate the power of… me throwing a potato!

The Ballad of Frida Suarez / Fool Speed Ahead (1.11)

Manny: Want to go to the arcade?
Frida: Five minutes, tops. [transit to the Mayan Arcade] Well, time to go home and write that masterpiece. [notices the nighttime sky] Why is the sky so dark?
Manny: We were in there for five hours.

Frida: [looks down seeing Manny wearing a pair of Zebra Donkey underwear around his waist] Dude, awesome…underpants.
Manny: [firmly] Listen to me. No one must ever know of this, NO ONE!

Frida: Feel the sting of Sartana's strings. [singing] ♪ She tossed El Tigre like a salad / Sartana of the Dead! / Listen to my Sartana ballad / Listen to me shred! / She smashed him, and flashed him, and blasted his hair! / She flipped him, and stripped him to his underwear! / ZEBRA DONKEY UNDERWEAR! / Sartana crushed El Tigre like a worm! ♪

Frida: My dreams are finally coming true! Except for the one where my mom is a giant snail, only she's really a post office.
Manny: Yeah, that's really, uh, good. Hey, do you think maybe people are getting sick of hearing that same song?
Frida: [gasps in shock] What are you trying to do, jinx me?! We're going on "Caliente o Basura" today, the whole city will be watching!

Manny: Tough audience, huh?
Frida: [viciously enraged] You JINXED ME!
Manny: What?! You totally trashed me and I still had your back!
Frida: Hey, I put your name in an awesome hit song! And what do you do? You jinx me with your jinxy-winxy-backstabbing JINX!
Manny: Uh-huh. Call me when you remember how to be a friend again. [leaves]

C.C. Puede: We're live from the prison graveyard for the Atomic Sombreros, "Back from La Muerte" show! Sartana may be evil incarnate, but she has put together kickin' concert!
Manny: [sitting on the sofa; grumpily] My worst nightmare is on TV. [now outraged] And it pre-empted wrestling!

Sartana: Miracle City, give me all your platinum, or this audience will learn to appreciate "underground" music.
Manny: This is just what Frida and her Tigre-hating fans deserve.

Frida: Manny, I'm sorry.
El Tigre/Manny: For being a selfish jerk who cared more about being a rock star than she did about her best friend?!
Frida: Well, yeah. And for this. [kicks the "I" off, letting Manny fall while he screams]

El Tigre/Manny: Frida's goggles! NOOOOOOOOO! [Frida lands on top of him] You're okay. And I'm not.
Frida: Yeah, I… [gasps] My goggles! NOOOOOOOOO! Haven't I paid enough for my rock star jerkiness?!
El Tigre/Manny: Uh, no.

El Tigre/Manny: Let's get to what we came for.
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: Yes! It's time… To sign up for the Supervillain Grand Prix!
Voltura: Puma Loco, this illegal street race is for villains only!
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: Aren't you saying I am NO VILLAIN, VOLTURA?!
Lady Gobbler: Not you, the boy! He more like a hero than a villain, lately.
El Tigre/Manny: Me? Ha! Would a hero do this? [gives Dr. Chipotle Sr a wet willy]
Señor Sinestro: A wet willy?!
Dr. Chipotle Sr.: Dr. Chipotle Sr. still feels that El Tigre should be DISQUALIFIED!

Grandpapi: Leave Miracle City? I was going to say we wash their cars for a month.
Manny: I don't know what happened, I just got caught up in the moment and… we really gotta win this race!

Grandpapi: No time for donkey potty!
Frida: Not that. [points to the white sewer gator up ahead] THAT!

Frida: [after the Rivera-mobile is destroyed when they reach the finish line] Goodnight, sweet prince, and flights of-- Hey, a quarter!

Miracle City Undercover / Bride of Puma Loco (1.12)

Manny: Battle stations, Suárez. It's time for… Fudgement Day!
Frida: T-minus 3, 2, 1, FUDGE!

Manny: [as he and Frida meet their mustache friend, Raul again] Raul, the world's greatest mustache! I haven't seen you since our big adventure. [smiles dreamily as he remembers the events from "The Mustache Kid" which Raul was first created]

Frida: Hi, Dad. What do you think of Manny's new look?
[Manny turns around with Raul, disguised as his eyebrows before Emiliano rips him off from his face]
Manny: Hey, you can't… [painfully] YOW!!!
Emiliano: You're coming with us, hairball!
Manny: Let him go!
Emiliano: This mustache committed a major felony. Last night, some fiend stole the jewel-encrusted mace belonging to Municipal President Rodriguez. We found this. [holds up some mustache wax] Mustache wax, Raul's brand, and he was fleeing the scene. This mustache is going to jail for a long time!
Manny: He'd never do something like that!
Frida: We would, but not Raul.

Manny: I'll prove Raul is innocent. He and I will go undercover in the Mustache Mafia and find the mace.
Frida: You're doing what now?
Manny: I can handle those mop pinheads. What's the worse that could happen?

Manny: [as Frida removes her mime mask] Frida? [gasps in a state of shock] YOU'RE A CLOSET MIME!

El Tigre/Manny: [hold an injured Raul; tearfully] Oh, what have I done? This is all my… [Raul reveals he was faking his injury and is okay; gasps in surprise, then smiles] You truly are the world's greatest mustache.

El Tigre/Manny: Hey, before you go, I think I figured a less painful way for you to get off my face. [Raul springs from Manny's face and flies away] For once, would you… [painfully] YOOOOOOOOOWW! [falls on his back and passes out]
Frida: [laughs] That never stops being funny.

Manny: Why do we have to get all gussied up for dinner?
Maria: Grandpapi has something important to tell us.
Rodolfo: [elated] Perhaps he's finally getting me that pony he promised me for my 10th birthday!
[Flashback to his 10th birthday]
10-year-old Rodolfo: A pony? [rips open his birthday present, revealing a cactus, gets poked by its thorns while jumping on it, and screams in pain]
[Flashback ends as everyone looks at him, all unamused]
Rodolfo: I did say perhaps.

[Sartana arrives at the Rivera house, blasting the door down with her mystic guitar]
Frida: [alarmed in horror] Sartana of the Dead!
Rodolfo: [fiercely] You dare intrude upon my father's special day?! [rips into his White Pantera ego and Manny changes into El Tigre]
Grandpapi: You're making a mistake!
El Tigre/Manny: Don't worry, we'll get rid of this filthy garbage before your fiancée gets here. [he and his father both charge at Sartana together]
Grandpapi: [gets in the way, defending her] NO! [Manny and Rodolfo crash into him] You no understand. This filthy garbage, she is my fiancée! [he and Sartana hold hands]
Sartana: [romantically] Pumey, the love of my afterlife.
El Tigre/Manny: [shocked] It's like a horrible dream.
Frida: Or a really romantic nightmare.

El Tigre/Manny: ARE YOU ALL NUTS?! This is Sartana of the Dead, our most dangerous enemy! We have to stop this!
Maria: It is Grandpapi's decision. We must respect it, no matter how unsafe, demented, and revolting it is.
Grandpapi: Thank you.
Sartana: Manny, I hope that one day you will call me, Grandmami.
El Tigre/Manny: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…!!! [continues screaming as time goes by and stops] Whoa, how long have I been screaming?
Frida: Eh, a couple hours. We tried to stop you for while, but everyone got tired and went to bed.
El Tigre/Manny: Sartana's up to something. This is all a plan to destroy Grandpapi. We will drive a wedge between them and stop the wedding. This I swear!

Manny: Oh, why won't anyone listen to me? We have to stop this wedding! I tried everything.

Monsterzuma: WHERE IS JEWEL?!
Maria: [to Manny, sternly] Manny, did you do something?
Manny: I stole Monsterzuma's jewel so he'd wake up and track it down and destroy the wedding. Hey, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Eye Caramba / Clash of the Titan (1.13)

Lady Gobbler: I here to play the darts!
El Tigre/Manny: Yeah? What kind of loot you got?
Lady Gobbler: [takes her glass eye off her face and sets it down on the table] This! I bet my glass eye against… your El Tigre belt.
El Tigre/Manny: My belt? Psh. For that? [starts to walk away] Forget it.
Lady Gobbler: You Riveras are chicken!
Manny: [having to have heard that; angrily takes off his belt and places it down on the table] My belt against your eye! One dart!
Frida: But, Manny, you stink without your Tigre powers.
Manny: Family honor will guide my aim. [throws the dart at a photo of Dr. Psyclopsis, missing the target; shaking his fist] CURSE YOU, FAMILY HONOR!

Lady Gobbler: With hidden camera in glass eye, we know where is Pantera all the time. Now we make REVENGE!
Voltura: He is such a twit. No wonder I broke up with him back when we were teenagers.
Lady Gobbler: Um…he break up with you?

White Pantera/Rodolfo: Flock of Fury, prepare to be plucked!
Lady Gobbler: TIME FOR THE FIGHTINGS! The way you treat me all those years ago was UNFORGIVABLE! [throws an egg bomb at Puma Loco]
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: [slices the bomb in half, exploding it] Sorry. [fires his missiles at Lady Gobbler]
Lady Gobbler: Oh, Puma. If you live through the fight, you call me, okay?
Voltura: "Prepare to be plucked." Pathetic. No wonder I broke up with you.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Uh, I broke up with you.

Rodolfo: We'll demolish evil doers with relentless force!
Manny: [Changes into El Tigre] Yeah!
Rodolfo: While discussing your grades, plans for college and your most private feelings!

Frida: [seeing a Rodolfo shrine in a secret room] Aww, look at that. The Titan has a White Pantera shrine. [gasps in horror when she sees pictures of Manny marked out in red ink] He has an El Tigre anti-shrine! [gasps again] And a book on Giant Squid Training! [gasps again] And a remote control for that giant robot set to attack! [gasps again in shock while holding a photo frame of herself with the word "Lame" pointing at her] And he thinks I'm lame! Clearly he has lost his mind!

White Pantera/Rodolfo: Manny, my son. Are you ok?
El Tigre/Manny: Eh, I think I bit my tongue.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: [gasps] NO!!!! [points to the Titan; fiercely] You have done this thing! Your mind is still twisted by jealousy and evil!
Titanium Titan: I just wanted things to be like the old days, Rodolfo. Please, don't make me do this.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Do what?

White Pantera/Rodolfo: Now, to stop the Titan!
El Tigre/Manny: Mira! [points to the Titanium Titan riding on a giant squid]
Titanium Titan: [laughing evilly] I'll be back! I'll be back! [a whale emerges from the ocean and eats him] It may take a while.

White Pantera/Rodolfo: What am I going to do with that boy?

The Grave Escape (1.14)

Frida: Dude, you rule the arcade. You're like a genius… except for your brain.
Manny: I owe it all to thumb push-ups.
Rodolfo: Manny, I thought you were in your room sick! What's going on here?!
Manny: It's not what it looks like.
Grandpapi: It looked like you forget you sneaked out, you no bother to sneaky back in.
Manny: Oh, then it is what it looks like.

Manny: The Day of the Dead was cool when I was little, but now it's just goofy. I don't wanna hurt their feelings, but… Sprits? Land of the Dand? Give me a break. [his stomach growls] What is it about skipping dinner that always makes me hungry?
Frida: You got me. Good thing there's tons of delicious food right here.
Manny: Frida, we can't eat my dad's sacred offerings that… [gasps] Is that real imitation crab? Mmm… Just a nibble.

Sartana: [screams in frustration] The gypsy lady I stole the string from guaranteed it would work! [savagely bashes her mystic guitar on the ground, causing the graveyard to crack open and rumble] Oh, like that… Right.

Grandpapi: ¡Mi corazón! CLEAR!

Sartana: Say hello to my little friends.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Sartana of the Dead? Attacking on the Day of the Dead?! Actually, that makes sense.

Frida: [holding onto Manny, screaming] Lucky for us we're already in a coffin. [resumes screaming]

El Tigre/Manny: Ay, karate! Frida, these are my ancestors. The first Rivera supervillain, Dark Leopard. The first hero, Golden Leon. The Mighty Cheetar, scourge of the Seven Seas. And my great-grandpapi, Justice Jaguar.

Justice Jaguar: There is one who has the power to reach the living world, if we can get him to use it: El Tigre.
[Dark Leopard and Mighty Cheetar gasp]
Frida: [confused] Wait, who the whats?
El Tigre/Manny: The original El Tigre. The first Rivera hero or villain. He never decided which.
Frida: Hey, just like you!
Golden Leone: The indecision ravaged his mind. He is now naught but a babbling fool.
Frida: Hey, just like you!
[Manny frowns]
Justice Jaguar: Riveras, time to visit El Tigre.

El Tigre/Manny: Mighty El Tigre, we need your help. Can you get us to Miracle City?
Original El Tigre: Why should I? [looks up above at the Land of the Living, seeing Rodolfo and Grandpapi in trouble]
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: Ai-yee! That was my favorite kidney!
El Tigre/Manny: Do it for them… White Pantera and Puma Loco. Good or bad, they always respected your memory.

Sartana: Your time is up, Riveras! Any last words?
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: Two. Breath… mint.

Sartana: [gasps in shock when she sees the deceased Rivera men all back from the dead] All the Riveras back from the dead?! DESTROY THEM, MY BEAST!

El Tigre/Manny: We've got one chance. We must use our ultimate weapon… the Rivera Super Macho Blitz!
[The Riveras gasp in shock over hearing this]
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: But, Manny, no one has ever survived the blitz!
Justice Jaguar: I know I didn't.
El Tigre/Manny: I gotta take a chance. If I don't, Sartana will destroy Miracle City! The Rivera bloodline will end! Rivera men, assemble! [the Rivera men all assemble; to Original El Tigre] You with me?
Original El Tigre: We are Riveras. Good or evil, we will go down fighting…
Riveras: [victoriously] Together!

Original El Tigre: You can do it, El Tigre! I believe in you! You are a RIVERA!!!
El Tigre/Manny: Ancient Tiger Spirit, I SUMMON YOU! [turns into a tiger spirit]
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: [surprised; to Rodolfo] Where'd he learn that?

El Tigre/Manny: [after the deceased Rivera men return to the Land of the Dead] They'll live forever now, because we'll never forget them.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: That's right, mijo. No one will.

Burrito's Little Helper / Crouching Tigre Hidden Dragon (1.15)

El Tigre/Manny: [losing his temper as everyone laughs at him while ripping up the Macho Moose costume] That is absolutely positively IT!!! I CAN'T STAND IT, ANYMORE! [furiously points to Davi] YOU ARE THE WORST SUPERHERO OF ALL TIME! You don't deserve a sidekick!
[Everyone gasps in shock at Manny's insult to Davi]
Frida: Dude!

The Cactus Kid / A Mother's Glove (1.16)

El Tigre/Manny: What are you so mad about?! You're the one who started all this!
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: I start it?! You the one don't want to do evil no more.
El Tigre/Manny: So, you replaced me with some geeky wannabe supervillain kid?!
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: Bah, I just using him. That goofy ball never going to be a real villain.

Cactus Kid: Sufferin' saguaros!' Now that is cactus power! [creates an army of cactus monsters; cackles evilly] So, Riveras. Who's a real supervillain now?
Manny and Grandpapi: You.

[Manny and Frida are resting and relaxing on a blanket in the Miracle City swamp]
Manny: People just don't know how to siesta anymore. [yawns]
Frida: We must keep the ancient art of napping alive, like sleep ninjas.

Frida: Dude, big locked box!
Manny: [reading the labels on the locked chest box] "Warning." "Danger." "Do not open."
Frida: Wow, it's like an us trap. Wait, maybe your dad planted it here.
Manny: Yeah, to test us.
Frida: I fail.
Manny: Me too. [Frida grabs a rat and tries to pick the lock with its nose; clears throat] Allow me. [changes into El Tigre, slices the lock, and opens it the chest box]
[Inside the box is a mystical powered silver glove]
Both: Whoa…
Manny: Whose glove is this?

Maria: [holding the struggling glove] No! I swore I will never put you on again!
Manny: Mom, what's going on?
Maria: There's something you don't know about me. Something shocking.
Manny: Ah, nothing shocks me.
Maria: I was once… a superhero.
Manny: [babbling in shock] Guh-bluh huzzle floygin?! [his brain shatters into pieces from inside his head]
Maria: I was in college. [Flashback to her college years; voice-over] I went to this party, and someone brought some mystical objects of power, and I… tried one on. Things were crazy back then. But, it was a different time. [puts the glove on and turns into her superhero identity] I was known as: Plata Peligrosa. At first, it was fun. Saving people, thwarting evil. But then… Then… [starts panting and hyperventilating as the flashback ends]
Frida: Here we go. [takes out a paper bag, takes a bite of a sandwich and gives the paper bag to Maria]
Manny: Mom, this is great! We can do stuff together, use our powers for good… or evil. Whatever, I'm easy.
Maria: [blows the paper bag too hard, popping the bottom] No, Manny. Never! I gave up my powers because I couldn't handle the danger. Now, lock that glove back up and let us never speak of it again!

Manny: Not only will we get to see Mom kick bad guy booty, but maybe she won't freak out so much when I use my powers.
Frida: [giggles] You said, "booty-butt."
Manny: This is a chance of a lifetime. Plata Peligrosa will fight again!

El Tigre/Manny: This is nuts! I thought you quit superheroing because you couldn't handle the danger!
Plata Peligrosa/Maria: I couldn't handle how much I loved the danger. I was afraid it would become an obsession, but now I know that I am PERFECTLY IN CONTROL! [cackles]
El Oso: For a hero, she gots a good evil laugh, man.
El Tigre/Manny: Mom, this has to stop!
Plata Peligrosa/Maria: You've been spending too much time with that evil Grandpapi of yours. Your father would never back down from a fight with villains!
El Tigre/Manny: He also wouldn't have busted them out of jail.
Plata Peligrosa/Manny: You're… you're right, mijo. I've got it all wrong.

El Tigre/Manny: Stop hitting my mom… Mom!
Plata Peligrosa/Maria: Only a villain would help a villain like me! I will make you PAY!
Frida: [spits out popcorn, having to have heard that] She's doing what now?!
El Tigre/Manny: No, Mom, you don't mean it! That's the glove talking!
Plata Peligrosa/Maria: Manny, RUN!

The Good, The Bad, and The Tigre (1.17)

Sartana: Tomorrow, I will hold a tournament beneath the Miracle City volcano. The winner will receive my mystic guitar! My skeleton bandito army. And a three-month subscription to "Villains Quarterly!"
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: Yes, yes, yes, magnifico! [laughs while hyperventilates] What? Is good magazine.

Manny: Can you believe them?
Frida: No. And what century did movies cost a quarter?!

Sartana: [giving out her attention to all the villains] Villains, you will all compete in a series of events designed by me. If you lose even once, you will be eliminated… [The villains all gasp in shock] From the tournament. [The villains all sigh in relief] Ah. The last competitors are here.

Sartana: Anyone who is here can compete. [strums her mystic guitar, closing the entrances] Because no one leaves the volcano until the tournament is over. NO ONE!!!
El Mal Verde: You will hold us prisoner?
El Oso: I didn't pack a lunch.
El Tarantula: No! I have to return these DVDs by 10:00 or I get charged for another day!
Sartana: The competition begins NOW! The last one left in the circle will continue on in the tournament.

El Tigre/Manny: You know what they say, the bigger they are…
Frida: The more likely they'll cause internal bleeding! I know! What?

Sartana: El Tigre wins! Uh, go figure. And to ensure that no one leaves, all losers will be shackled!
El Mal Verde: Nobody shackles Mal Verde!

El Tigre/Manny: ENOUGH! You think I'm just some kid you can boss around? [to his father] I'm not your side… [to his Grandpapi] and I'm not on your side. I'm on my side. And if you don't wanna get hurt… [viciously] stay out of my way.

Sartana: The final event! Whoever wins, inherits my empire! You must knock your opponents off the platforms. I call this challenge… Knock Your Opponents off the Platforms!

El Tigre/Manny: I warned you to stay out of my way… And you're like one foot off the ground.
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: Yes, well, you're still very mean.
Django: [claps slowly] See? He has chosen power over family. I told you he was a true villain.
El Tigre/Manny: [confused] Django? What?
Sartana: He is indeed worthy. El Tigre, join us. With you and Django by my side, we will rule the world!
El Tigre/Manny: Huh? You said you were retiring!
Sartana: Yes, but I… FIBBED! [cackles wickedly]
Comrade Chaos: A fib?!
El Oso: It can't be!
El Tarantula: Never trust a villain.
Sartana: Your plan worked perfectly, Django.
El Tigre/Manny: Your plan?
Django: Yes. I devised this tournament as a way to get all of grandmother's evil competition in one place and DESTROY THEM!
Frida: That is one complicated evil plan.
Comrade Chaos: He truly is an artist.
El Oso: I would applaud if he weren't destroying me.
El Tarantula: Wait, so that's real lava?

El Tigre/Manny: Django, I really appreciate this.
Django: The offer to join us?
El Tigre/Manny: No. You're sticking out your hand like an idiot.

El Tigre/Manny: [chuckles nervously as Sartana stands in front of him] Hey there. Sorry about Django, huh?
Sartana: Don't worry. He's a fast healer. [strums her mystic guitar, resurrecting her grandson]
Django: [emerging from the lava with lava hands; savagely] El Tigre, you will PAY!
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: Get ready for play catch, lava bone boy!
El Tigre/Manny: No, this is my fight.
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: But Manny...
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Papi, Manny was right. He's not a child anymore. We must let him fight his own battles.

Frida: Manny, red hot lava! Getting close, but no pressure!

Sartana: [to Django after accidentally blasting lava at her] Just wait till your mother hears about this.

Bad Ending

Narrator: Thus, did El Tigre choose… Evil. With Tigre and Django's help, Sartana was at last able to conquer the world, plucking it like a ripe and succulent fruit… only bigger. Earth's teaming masses were powerless to resist their onslaught. Those who resisted were crushed beneath the iron boot of the Tyrannical Boot of Iron. Before long, El Tigre and Django decided it was finally time for Sartana to retire. [a rocket encases Sartana and blasts off into the sky] And El Tigre decided it was time for Django to retire as well. [another rocket encases Django after Manny shakes his hand, bidding him farewell, and blasts off to the moon as Manny catches his mystic guitar] And so, El Tigre became the unquestioned ruler of all human kind. His first order of business was to his loved ones from the Miracle City volcano.
[Manny rushes to the volcano, where his father, grandpapi, and Frida are all shackled]
Frida: [after Manny frees her] Dude, took you long enough.
El Tigre/Manny: Well, I've been conquering the world, enslaving humankind. You know how it is.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: But of course, as your elders, Papi and I will take control of the world, once you unshackle us.
Grandpapi: Yes, we take your power and hold it for you until you get older, eh?
[After a short pause…]
El Tigre/Manny: Gosh, I have left a flan within the oven. We'll be back in five or ten minutes or months.
Frida: Ciao!
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Well, you can't rush flan.

Narrator: But of course, El Tigre and Frida soon grew tired of these childish games. If by "soon" you mean, "in 60 years."
[60 years later…]
Frida: Dude, the last 60 years have been awesome! But I feel like we forgot something.
El Tigre/Manny: Dad and Grandpapi! We must run like the wind!

A Fistful of Nickels / Animales! (1.18)

Rodolfo: [scolding Manny] Manuel Pablo Gutierrez O'Brian Equihua Rivera! I am VERY disappointed in you. You have to learn to be responsible.

Sartana: How DARE you steal from me, you little maggot!
Frida: He was stupid enough.

White Pantera/Rodolfo: Sartana, face the power of… The Riveras! And Frida.

Sartana: [cackling] Fools! Death always wins in the end!

White Pantera/Rodolfo: Dropped in the belly of the beast.
El Tigre/Manny: There's only one way to escape this monster and destroy Sartana. Our ultimate weapon: the Caliente Catapult of Carnage!
[Frida gasps upon hearing this]
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: No…it's too dangerous!
White Pantera/Rodolfo: I won't risk…my only son!
El Tigre/Manny: Dad… I know I messed up. I sent Señor Chapi to bird heaven, and I wrecked the house… twice. But please, let me show you I can be a hero. I will make you proud.

White Pantera/Rodolfo: [sighs] What am I going to do with that boy?
Grandpapi: Don't worry, someday Manny will be a truly great villain.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Hero, he'll be a hero!
Frida: So, what now?
El Tigre/Manny: Oh, uh, maybe, uhh… Hide Sartana's loot and tell my dad it disappeared?
Frida: Dude, you are an artist.

Rodolfo: That charity auction was a zookeeper.

Tigre + Cuervo Forever / The Thing That Ate Frida's Brain (1.19)

Frida: Dude, why so mopey? You're acting like they just outlawed churros. [gasps] They didn't, did they?
Manny: [upset] My dad is super mad at me. I totally been messing up with him lately.
Frida: Do tell. [grabs and pulls him by the collar; shouting] I SAID TELL!
Manny: Okay, okay! Like, yesterday, me and Dad were doing a little crime-fighting.
[Flashback to yesterday at Miguel's Jewels; Dr. Chipotle Sr. emerges from the vault with a handful of gold and jewels, and sees White Pantera standing in front of him]
Dr. Chipotle Sr.: You do not have a chance. Dr Chipotle Sr's son is sneaking up behind you.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: That's where you're wrong. Because my son has taken care of him. Right, Manny? Manny?
El Tigre/Manny: [playing a video game] I'm on it, Dad! High Score!
White Pantera/Rodolfo: [annoyed] Ah, I see. [gets blasted by Dr. Chipotle Jr.]
[Back to the present]
Manny: And later, me and Dad caught El Oso robbing a factory… an underpants factory.
[Cut to another flashback at the Miracle City Underpants Factory]
White Pantera/Rodolfo: [kicks the doors open] El Oso, drop those drawers! [Manny bursts out in a fit of hysterical laughter; confused] What? What's so funny? [El Oso peers up from behind him and gives him an atomic wedgie]
[Fade back to the present]
Manny: You try to keep a straight face in a room full of pink thongs.
Frida: Dude, preaching to the choir.
Manny: How am I gonna make it up to him?
Frida: You could clean your room. [Manny annoyingly looks at her] Sorry, talking crazy.

El Tigre/Manny: Just heading out to check with my "anonymous source." Who might have information that could help you prevent crimes.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: [agitated] Manny… I can't even LOOK at you right now. Seriously, it pulls my hair.

Voltura: Make yourself at home, El Tigre.
Lady Gobbler: Yes. It's so nice to have you here.
Black Cuervo: Wow. They totally hate you. Don't eat anything.

[Rivera House; Manny talks to Frida about Black Cuervo saying he's the best friend she's ever had by standing up for her]
El Tigre/Manny: She said I'm the best friend she's ever had!
Frida: Meanwhile, you're totally stabbing her in the back and stuff. [laughs] But…
El Tigre/Manny: Yeah?
Frida: That's nothing compared to how upset your dad's gonna be when he finds out what you've done.
El Tigre/Manny: [gulps nervously; guilty] You're right, Frida. I've gotta tell 'em both the truth.

Black Cuervo: I thought you liked me, but you were just USING ME!
El Tigre/Manny: [whispering a little quicker] Cuervo, you're totally right. I'm sorry I treated you so lousy, but I'm going to make it up to you.
Black Cuervo: [scoffs] How?
El Tigre/Manny: This fight. I'm going to let you win.
Black Cuervo: [enraged in shock] LET ME WIN?!
Frida: Ooh, bad call.

Lunch Lady: [serving Frida refried brains during lunchtime] Refried brains. You are in for a treat, young lady.

Manny: I'll yank that puppy off you with a little… [changes into El Tigre] Tigre power!
Frida: Zombie not bad, Manny. Frida like zombie.
El Tigre/Manny: You may feel a pinch.

General Chapuza: So, zombies cannot dance, eh? Now, El Tigre. We will show you the error of your ways.

Frida: Is good, Manny. Being zombie very, very good.

Stinking Badges / Mech Daddy (1.20)

El Tigre/Manny: Check out what's at the museum… The Golden Mustache of the Pharaohs. The Mustache Mafia are totally gonna… [notices Frida looking really sad and upset] Hey, what's wrong?
Frida: Nothing. It's just… lying to my dad like this…
El Tigre/Manny: Oh, you feeling a little guilty?
Frida: No, of course not. Guilty, me? [laughs] I laugh. Guilt slides off me like water off a duck's back. A filthy, stinking, no-good duck who lies to her dad!

Anita & Nikita: See, papa? We told you. Frida lied!

El Tigre/Manny: Wait a minute!
Emiliano: You stay out of this, Rivera! She lied to me.
El Tigre/Manny: Yeah, she lied… but only 'cause she wanted to be a good cadet so you'd like her more.
Emiliano: What?! How could I like her more?! I love my Frida. She is… my Frida.

El Tigre/Manny: Adios, Giant Robot Sanchez! [gives Robot Sanchez a mighty punch]
Giant Robot Sanchez: BO-BO-BEEP.

Robio: Daddy cut the cheese.

El Tigre/Manny: It's weird. I kinda understand why my dad acts all... daddish.
Frida: Understand: yes. Like: no. [sees that they're flying towards back to Miracle City] Hey, look, the Miracle City volcano!
[They crash into the volcano as the screen cuts to white and then to black]
El Tigre/Manny: [wounded] Oh, good...

The Return of Plata Peligrosa / Chupacabros! (1.21)

Manny: [annoyed] Dad, you said we were gonna protect the city today, not plant daisies.
Rodolfo: Icelandic poppies!

El Tigre/Manny: Mom, are you okay? [points to the glove] Get your hand off my mom!
Maria: Manny, it's not what you think.
White Panter/Rodolfo: Maria, you said the glove was destroyed in the jaws of the Robasura.
Maria: I thought it was. [Flashback to Manny's last battle with the glove; voice-over] But a few days later, it showed up on my doorstep, hurt and scared. I just couldn't turn it away. As I nursed it back to health, I realized the glove was good inside. Tests in my home lab showed that if I wore the glove for only one hour at a time, I could control the danger mania. Even a few seconds more, and I become… unstable. So, the glove and I made a deal. [Flashback ends] I will use my Plata Peligrosa powers to help those in need, but when my watch alarm sounds, it must get off my hand. Right, "Glovey?"
El Tigre/Manny: That's great, Mom.
Frida: You have a home lab?
Maria: Now, I can help my boys out in a crisis.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: [gazing dreamily at her] You called me handsome.
Maria: Rodolfo, don't listen to what I say when I'm wearing the glove. I'm not myself. [Rodolfo puckers up his lips to kiss her; puts her hand on his mouth] You and I always be just friends.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Of course. I understand completely. [Maria walks off] She called me handsome!
[Later at the Rivera House; Manny and Frida hang out in Manny's room]
Frida: Wow, your mom and dad, a crime-fighting team. Maybe they'll get back together. [imitates kissing while rubbing Señor Chapi's head] Oh, Rodolfo, you're so handsome.
Señor Chapi: [touched while blushing] Ah, viva pantalones.
Manny: Cut it out, Frida. We both know my parents are better off apart.
Frida: Yeah, but does your dad know?
Manny: Sure he does. Probably. Down deep. Anyway, as long as he keeps his mind off beautifying the city.

Rodolfo: Maria, we have been seeing a lot of each other lately, and… No, that's not right. [clears throat] Mi vida, I, that is, um… I need to ask you, will you have coffee with me?
[Manny gasps in shock and Frida grabs and pulls him by the mouth, throws him in the LuxePod and closes the lid, and he screams]
Frida: Manny, it's just coffee.
Manny: You know what happens after a man and woman have coffee?
Frida: [gasps] Danish?
Manny: No! They have a real date!

Manny: Dad! Oh, man. He's gonna get his heart broken. [determined] We got to make him see that she's not herself when she's wearing that glove.
Frida: Right, 'cause that isn't obvious.
Manny: So we'll make it even more obvious. This I swear!

El Tigre/Manny: [giving Frida the alarm watch] Hide this.
Frida: But without the alarm, your mom's gonna go all danger-crazy.
El Tigre/Manny: Exactly.
[Frida hides the alarm watch in her goggles]

[The alarm watch suddenly goes off in Frida's goggles]
White Pantera/Rodolfo: What's that noise?
El Tigre/Manny: Wind.
Frida: Elephants.
El Tigre/Manny: Airplane.
Frida: Thingy-thing.
White Pantera/Rodolfo: [looks up at Maria and gasps] Maria!

White Pantera/Rodolfo: I have never seen so much grotesque grotesquely. That's not like Maria. It's not love!
Plata Peligrosa/Maria: [grabs Rodolfo by the collar] You and I belong together, White Pantera! Come on. Spend your life with me, crushing evil, and laughing in danger, and never taking this glove off! [laughs wickedly insane]

White Pantera/Rodolfo: You know what's funny? If not for this inexplicable string of crimes and disasters, I would have been beautifying the city with Manny and Frida instead of… giving them lots of money?
[Money pops out from Frida's goggles]
Frida: How you doing?

Manny: NOOOOOOO!!!!!! [runs back to Chui and hugs him; sobbing] He's my Chui! He's…my…Chui! [sobs] We can't leave him and go home!
Frida: I know it's hard, dude, but you got to let him go.
Manny: No, we really can't leave him and go home. I have no idea where we are.

Love and War / Wrong and Dance (1.22)

[Sergio and Diego realize they both have crushes on Frida and angrily get into each other's faces]
Sergio: You after my girl!
Diego: No, you are after mine!
Sergio: You might as well give up now! Frida will melt at my charm, and the cool accent. I'm suavé.
Diego: No, my brains will melt her. From math to science, my knowledge is encyclopedic.

Frida: Stupid geography test. I like my answer for "What's the capital of France?"
Manny: Yeah, Frenchy town rocks.

Sergio: What's he say?
Diego: I don't know. But it's obvious that Frida…likes Manny.
Both: [enraged with a background of fire] I MUST CRUSH HIM!!!
Diego: I will dispose of Manny and make it look like an accident.
Sergio: And once he's gone, I will make Frida mine. I will sweep her feet off…
Diego: No, I will.
Sergio: No, me.
Diego: Me!
Sergio: Me!
Diego: Me, me, ME!
Sergio: Me, me, ME!

Frida: Stop! If you guys want Manny, you gotta deal with me first!
[Sergio and Diego both gasp in shock]
Sergio: They are so close. [cries in heartbroken] Frida can never be mine.
Diego: [also heartbroken] Or mine. And if we can't have her…

El Tigre/Manny: This is my chance to show those girls how macho I am for real! [Makes a girly face and claps] Yay!
Frida: Yeah…he's gonna need a macho coach.

Oso Solo Mio / Silver Wolf (1.23)

El Tigre/Manny: [showing up at the Miracle City junkyard; annoyed] Frida! Missed you at the concert tonight.
Frida: Oh, was that tonight?
El Tigre/Manny: Guess you couldn't make it 'cause you were too busy STABBING ME IN THE BACK!
Frida: I didn't stab you anywhere.
El Tigre/Manny: How could you?! You haven't seen me all week!
Frida: Sure, I have.
El Tigre/Manny: Oh yeah? What did I bring to school for lunch yesterday?
Frida: FOOD!
El Tigre/Manny: Lucky guess.
Frida: You're just mad because for once, I'm not your sidekick.
El Tigre/Manny: [angrily gets in her face] Yeah. You're his sidekick!
Frida: Nuh-uh, I'm like, his, "front-kick!"
Silver Wolf: Get out of her face.
El Tigre/Manny: Make me, tin puppy!
Silver Wolf: Make me make you.
El Tigre/Manny: Make me make you make me!

Silver Wolf: Here… [hands Frida his whip] Finish him.
Frida: [incredulous] What?
Silver Wolf: It's time for you to choose, Frida… El Tigre or me?
Frida: [nonchalantly] El Tigre. [takes off her biker helmet]
Silver Wolf: Yes, though it may be agonizing you must decide between… what?
Frida: El Tigre, duh, no brainer.
Silver Wolf: You can't DO that!
Frida: Can, did.
Silver Wolf: You were supposed to forget about him! [in a grown man's voice as his body becomes full silver] This is not going according to my secret plan!
El Tigre/Manny: [shocked] I know that voice! Silver Wolf is…
Titanium Titan: [revealing himself in the form of Silver Wolf] The Titanium Titan!

The Cuervo Project / The Golden Eagle Twins (1.24)

[The Science Teacher drags Zoe Aves over to Manny and Frida, pairing her up with them to create their science fair project]
Frida: [outraged] Zoe Aves?! [angrily squirts her soda up Manny's nose]
Manny: [pushes the side of his nose, making the soda squirt out of his eye sockets] Cool.
Frida: She's my arch-nemesis! I can't work with her!
Science Teacher: Can, will.
[Frida snarls angrily]
Zoe: [to Manny; sweetly] Hello, Manny. [glaring at Frida] Hello, Frida.
[Frida angrily snarls again]
Manny: Come on, Frida. Zoe isn't that bad.
Frida: No? What about the time she sawed through the legs of my stool chair?
Manny: When was that?
Frida: Now. [falls on the ground, revealing Zoe already did it as she snickers]
Manny: Uh, maybe she's changed since then?
Frida: [vengefully] I will make Zoe Aves suffer! I will humiliate her! I WILL HAVE REVENGE!!! And by "I", I mean, "we."
Manny: Sure, what are friends for?

Frida: [annoyingly suspicious] Are you talking to your wrist?
Zoe: No… yes. Uh, I have to go, uh, somewhere, for… a reason. [zips away]
Frida: She's hiding something.
Manny: Why? There's nothing wrong with talking to your wrist.

Black Cuervo: All right, yes! I am Zoe Aves. You have learned the truth. But maybe sharing my secret will bring us closer. Maybe you will join me, and maybe I will give you... a jet pack. All you have to do is keep my secret.
El Tigre/Manny: [romantically] Oh, a jet pack. We can be together at last, mi amor.

Science Teacher: There you are, Aves. Is your project ready to be judged?
Manny: She is ready to be judged. I have an announcement. Zoe Aves is secretly Black Cuervo!

Black Cuervo: [grabs Zoe's hand and flies into midair above the school] Zoe Aves is nothing to me. Watch as I drop her into her OWN volcano!
Frida: Dude, I don't like her either, but that is harsh.
[Black Cuervo let goes of Zoe's hand, making her fall into her volcano project as she screams]

Rodolfo: Manny, I must speak to you, now. [drags him into his room] I arrange for you to meet the Golden Eagle Twins, you drop a stolen churro truck on them?
El Tigre/Manny: What truck? And it's not my fault.
Rodolfo: [sighs] No, mijo, it isn't. It's my fault. I have been a poor role model. [sniffs sadly] I have failed you. [starts sobbing]
El Tigre/Manny: No, Dad, you're the best. But if it'll make you better, I'll hang out with the twins.
Rodolfo: I can always count on you, mijo. Now let's go share the good news.

Imaginary Rodolfo Head: I can always count on you, mijo! [winks]
El Tigre/Manny: Curse you, floating head of guilt. [pops the head and flies away] Time to take a stand, Frida. [faces the twins] Golden Eagle Twins, you are going down!

Frida: [screaming as she and Manny dangle from the Golden Eagle Twins' blimp while floating in midair above Miracle City] Hey, I can see my house from here. [resumes screaming]

Carla: [joining her twin brother in performing the Eagle Move] You can't beat us, El Tigre. When we join… our powers increase a thousand fold!
Carlito: And nothing can separate us! Noth--
Frida: Hey, Eagle dork! I got two words for you! Bl-imp.
Carlito: [screaming in agony] ZEPPELIN!!!

Manny: The whole city still loves the twins, and I get blamed for everything. You believe me, right, Dad?
Rodolfo: Yes, mijo, and I am very proud of you.
Manny: You are?
Rodolfo: Of course. You sacrificed yourself for the good of of others. It doesn't get much more heroic than that.
Manny: Thanks, Dad. [looks at the police officers, revealing that they're in the prison infirmary] Um, could you tell that to these guys?

Dia de los Padres (Day of the Father) / Mustache Love (1.25)

Manny: Only one sack of glitter left!
[Manny and Dr. Chipotle Jr. grab the glitter sack at the same time and fight over it]
Dr. Chipotle Jr.: SWINE! Get your hands off my glitter!
Manny: It's mine!
Dr. Chipotle Jr.: Mine!
Manny: Mine!
Dr. Chipotle Jr.: Mine!
Manny: MINE!
[They rip the sack off on opposite sides, causing glitter to sprinkle everywhere]
Dr. Chipotle Jr.: YOU WILL PAY FOR… [sighs depressingly] What's the point? May last hope for Father's Day is gone. And my father is already in a rotten mood. Because he keeps getting defeated by YOUR FATHER!
Manny: Yeah, my dad's in a lousy mood, too.
Dr. Chipotle Jr.: [romantically to Frida] Why, Miss Suárez. I must say you are looking lovely today.
Manny: Oh, now I won't even have a lame present for my dad.

[Rivera house; Grandpapi opens his Father's Day present from Rodolfo]
Grandpapi: Me favorite cologne, old and spicy! [puts on the cologne] Thank you, son.
Rodolfo: [wearing a gas mask] Happy Father's Day, Papi.

Dr. Chipotle Sr-Sr.: [gesturing to El Tigre and his grandson] Do I blast the furry one or the one that looks like me?
Dr. Chipotle Sr.: [points to El Tigre] The furry one!

Sofia: [disgusted] Eww. Without a mustache, you're repulsive.
Frida: Three, two, one. [Manny and Sofia both scream painfully and pass out] I love a wedding. [sniffles happily]

Back to Escuela / No Boots, No Belt, No Brero (1.26)

Grandpapi: The Golden Grasshopper of Guadalupe. The Bronze Bee of Baja. The Dryer-lint Dragonfly of Durango. All I need to complete collection is… The cursed Silver Scorpion of Sonora. And the best part is… the scorpion is on display at Manny's school tomorrow!

Grandpapi: Manny, what's wrong?
Manny: I got busted at school... again.
Frida: Turns out, teachers don't like it when you put plastic wrap over the faculty toilet bowls.

Manny: [upset and heartbroken] Grandpapi? You… You lied to me? You didn't come to school to help me. You were after the scorpion all along.

Grandpapi: Curse is on YOU, Señor Poker!

[As the Riveras fall from the sky…]
Manny: NO BELT!
Rodolfo: NO BOOTS!
Grandpapi: NO BRERO!

Manny: El Ti-Tera.
Rodolfo: White Loco.
Grandpapi: Puma Tigre. Ooh, I have a tail.

[Last and final lines of the series; the Riveras stand victoriously on top of a mountain of every villain in Miracle City that's been defeated while everyone cheers]
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Very good.
Puma Loco/Grandpapi: Well rockin'!
El Tigre/Manny: Now that was family fun!
White Pantera/Rodolfo: Yes, mijo.
Frida: [lands in Manny's hands] Kiss me, you fool! [kisses Manny in the lips]
El Tigre/Manny: Familia forever!
