  • Abie Quintanilla : What's Dad gonna say?

    Selena Quintanilla : [imitating Abraham]  I don't believe this, son! What were you thinking?

    [scene switches] 

    Abraham Quintanilla : I don't believe this, son! What were you thinking of? Who's that laughing? Is that Selena? Listen, where are you?

  • Abraham Quintanilla : You were out there wearing a bra!

    Selena Quintanilla : It's not a bra!

    Abraham Quintanilla : It's a bra with little sprinkly things on it!

  • Selena Quintanilla : I may not be street wise and all that, but at least I'm not that dumb!

  • Selena Quintanilla : I've been thinking about the crossover tour a lot. I've even had dreams about it. It's just this whole different world for us, you know? We've been working for this ever since we were kids. I guess I'm a little scared...


    Selena Quintanilla : Are they gonna love me, Mama?

    Marcela Quintanilla : Yes, Mija, they're gonna love you.

  • Selena Quintanilla : You know I was just thinking, I've never seen you dance. Do you dance?

    Chris Perez : Dance? Oh yea, I dance. Yea I put on my white shoes and black jacket and dance like John Travolta.

    Selena Quintanilla : Yea, well, we can dance this. Come on. Let me see you dance.

    Chris Perez : I was just kidding.

  • [Chris eats pizza with Hot sauce] 

    Selena Quintanilla : Now you have to try some of mine.

    Chris Perez : I don't eat pepperoni, too hot.

  • Abraham : No female has ever made it and now you're number one. You cracked the Tejano market wide open. You walked into Mexico and they don't even accept Mexican-Americans and they love you, and now?

    Selena Quintanilla : And now... gringos. Disney World!

    Abraham : You remember?

    Selena Quintanilla : Uh-huh.

    Abraham : And all the barriers that have stopped people before... and you went through them like they didn't exist. Maybe for you they don't exist. I love you, and I'm very proud of you.

  • Selena Quintanilla : [their elopement has been heard on the radio and Chris tries to turn to the Corpus Christi entrance]  Don't go to Corpus, go the other way!

    Chris Perez : Where are we gonna go, Alaska?

    Selena Quintanilla : Anywhere but Corpus!

  • Selena Quintanilla : [on Chris]  I love him. And he loves me too.

    Abraham Quintanilla : Of course he does! You're young, you're beautiful and you're rich!

  • Selena Quintanilla : Hey dad, what was so important you had to drag me over here?

    Abraham : Aye, Selena we have a problem. And I don't know where to start. It's Yolanda.

    Selena Quintanilla : What?

    Abraham : We started to get complaints from fans who had sent money to the fan club and had received nothing. Not a picture, nada. Then I found out she had a problem with her previous employer.

    Selena Quintanilla : Well what kind of problem? Because you know Yolanda. She wouldn't do that.

    Abraham : Money problems. We didn't find out about it because they had settled it out of court. But I went to the records at some of the fan clubs to find these cheques. They're very suspicious to me.

    [Selena looks at the cheques] 

    Abraham : And what's worse, is that a lot of the records are missing. Selena, I'm worried. She's been handling a lot of business in the boutiques.

    Selena Quintanilla : [unnerved]  I know.
