- Maya: [about the chupacabra] It flew in the window and tried to grab Paco! But he fought back! Right, Pacquito?
- Paco: [squawk] Si! Uh...Paco fight back!
- Maya: He even got a piece of its wing! [shows paper cut-out and squeals as audience gasps] Now don't panic. The creature is probably going to fly back to Puerto Rico. But if I were you, I'd go home right now! Just in case!!
- Chrissy: [about the chupacabra] Is it here in the store?
- Maya: Uh, Maggie...uh, Chrissy, wait!
- Andy: [enters] Where'd it park its spaceship?
- Maya: Ooh. Spaceship?
- Andy: Yeah! Didn't you know? Chupacabras come from another solar system?
- Tito: Chupacabras?
- Andy: Well, everyone's talking about it all over the neighborhood!
- Chrissy: 5:00 at the community center, right?
- Tito: But Freddy and Cesar are expecting a big monster with big wings and big eyes and big teeth!
- Andy: A real live chupacabra?! That means a real UFO may be in our neighborhood! I'm posting this in the chat book right now!
- Maya: [narrating] Getting scared can be fun, like when you're watching an old monster movie. But sometimes, even fun scares can turn out to be...well, a little too scary.

- Maya: It's a funny thing about making a commitment. Even though sometimes you don't want to follow through. Once you do, you're glad you did.
