Dialogue[edit]

(General Posada looks at the mess that María set the animals free)
General Posada: That girl is in so much trouble!
Young María: Uh-oh.
General Posada: (yelling) MA-RI-A!!!
Young María: (to General Posada) I'm sorry, Papa. It's just that I-- (María gasps as she looks at Manolo's broken guitar) Manolo's guitar.
Young Manolo: (gasps)
General Posada: María, this rebellious nonsense ends now! You are going to become a proper lady.
Young María: (confused) Why?
General Posada: BECAUSE I SAID SO! I'm sending you to Spain. The sisters at the convent of the perpetual flame of purity will straighten you out.
All: What?!
Young María: But, Papa!
General Posada: No, it is decided. NOW GO HOME!
(María runs away crying)

Carmelo: He's new
Jorge: He reminds me of me. (laughs) But less handsome.

Manolo: Meet me at the bridge at dawn.
Maria: I can't, Manolo. My father won't...
Manolo: Please, Maria. I beg you.
(Maria agrees, Manolo slides down the streetlamp, Xibalba watches Manolo running for the Proposal Tree.)
Xibalba: If she meets him alone, I will lose the wager. (summons his two-headed snake) Fix this for me, old friend.

Xibalba: So then, if my boy marries the girl, I will finally rule the Land of the Dead.
La Muerte: And if my boy marries the girl, you will... (grabs Xibalba's beard) you will stop interfering with the affairs of man!
Xibalba: What?! I can't do that! C'mon, it's the only fun I ever get!
La Muerte: Then the bet is off.
Xibalba: Very well, my dear. By the ancient rules, (Xibalba and La Muerte shake hands) the wager is set.

Mary Beth: And so, Joaquin learned that to be a true hero...
Jane: You have to be selfless.

Xibalba: You never cease to amaze me, mi amor. Such passion.
La Muerte: Anyone can die. These kids, they will have the courage to live.
Xibalba: I'll wager you are right, my love.
(Xibalba and La Muerte kiss)
Candle Maker: Hey, write your own story.

Carlos: People said I was the greatest bullfighter in our family's history, bit it is you, my son, who'll be the greatest Sanchez ever! They will write songs about you.
Young Manolo: And I will sing them!
Carlos: Wait, what?
Young Manolo: (laughs nervously) I will sing them?
Carlos: (sighs) Son, music is not work fit for a Sanchez bullfighter.
Young Manolo: But I want to be a musician.
Carlos: No, you must focus. Your training begins at once. Your grampa, Luis, taught me when I was about your age.
Young Manolo: Wait, isn't that when that bull put you in a coma?
Carlos: Ah, memories. My only son fighting angry, thousand-pound beasts. The family tradition continues.
Young Manolo: (sarcastically) Yay!

Manolo: I know about the wager. Xibalba cheated!
La Muerte: He did WHAT?!
Manolo: Yeah! With a two-headed snake!
'(La Muerte starts to boil with rage)
Candle Maker: You might wanna cover your ears right now.
La Muerte: XIIIII... BAAAAL... BAAAAAAAA!
Xibalba: (suddenly appears) Yes, my dear? (suddenly shocked when he sees Manolo and the group) Oh.
La Muerte: You misbegotten son of a leprous donkey! YOU CHEATED!! AGAIN!!!
Xibalba: I did no such thing! (La Muerte grabs Xibalba's two-headed snake and turns it back into a staff) Oh, that. It has a mind of its own... or two.
La Muerte: That is unforgivable!
Xibalba: Oh, please! I never sent that snake to Maria, and I never gave that medal to Joaquin! (realizes what he just said)
La Muerte: (suspicious) What...medal?
Xibalba: The..... one I never gave him. Ever at all. Never. Who is this Joaquin?
La Muerte: (grabs Xibalba) You gave Joaquin the Medal of Everlasting Life?!
Xibalba: Yes.
Manolo: "Medal of Everlasting Life?"
La Muerte: Whoever wears the medal cannot die or be injured. [slaps Xibalba]
Carmen: Please, may I? [slaps Xibalba repeatedly] Thank you.
Candle Maker: Yo, can I get a slap in, too?

Mary Beth[edit]

  • And the one truth we know, it held true one more time, that love, true love, the really, really good kind of love... never dies.
