I typed these quotes up from memory because they're my favorite so DO NOT STEAL THEM FOR YOUR SITE. GO GET YOUR OWN AND LEAVE MY STUFF ALONE.
Marcela: "You go girl."
Abraham: "We're starting a band."
Marcela: "Who's starting a band?"
Abraham: "You, me, the kids. Rock and roll, heh heh."
Selena: "We wanna play stuff that's cool. Stuff that's happening."
Abraham: "Show me what's happening."
(kids play loud and Selena headbangs)
Abraham: "That's too cool for me, play 'Blue Moon'."
Selena: "Dad what's this all about?"
Abraham: "This is about learning how to sing in spanish."
Selena: "Dad I don't wanna sing in spanish, I don't even like music in spanish. I like Donna Summer. That's what I like."
Abraham: "I'm an American, you're an America. I like doo-wop, you like Donna Summer. But you're also Mexican, deep down inside and that's a wonderful thing. You can't be anything if you don't know who you are."
Selena: "So what you're saying is I have to learn how to sing this stuff."
Abraham: "Mmmhmmm, remember clock don't mark the hours because I'm going nuts."
AB: "They weren't dancing because we don't have good material."

Selena: "I'm looking up at the moon and I'm dreaming."
Selena: "Well let's just say you wouldn't imagine what my dreams are like, I mean when I was on that stage...come on Suzie how did you feel?"
Suzette: "I've never seen so many people smile before. It was so cool."
Selena: "It was. It's like...when I'm on stage...I can be anything I wanna be."
Abraham: "If we try hard and we really want it, we can do it. You guys are gonna be huge. You're gonna record records and you're gonna play everywhere. You're even gonna play Disney World."
Selena: "Disney World? You really think we'll make it there?"
Abraham: "I know we will."
Abraham: "Do the washing machine!"
Abraham: Juan Luis this is not what we discussed.
Juan Luis: Lo siento hermano, pero that's the way it is.
AB: "When are we getting a real road crew? Thats what I wanna know"
Selena: "I think dad is perfectly happy with the road crew he has and I do mean you"
AB: "Yeah cause it's free."
AB: "So much for MY bustier."

I dont feel like that anymore. I love you."
Selena: "I dont care what you say. It doesn't matter. I love him and he loves me too.

Chris: "That's okay I can make my own way."
Selena: "You can not do this Dad."
Abraham: "Now you listen to me. You all listen. If you follow that man, I will disband the group. There will be no more Selena Y Los Dinos, do you understand me? It's over."
Selena: "I can't even go into a burger joint with you, without worrying about somebody seeing us and it getting back to Dad."
Selena: "How bout that?"
Some guy: "Yeah right Selena, you're full of it."
Another guy: "Yeah you wouldn't do that Sel, no way."

Abraham: "You remember?"
Selena: "Uh huh."
Abraham: "For centuries people have been trying to break those barriers and you went through them like the didn't exist. Maybe for you they don't exist. I love you, and I'm very proud of you."
