Edward James Olmos: Abraham Quintanilla
Abraham : We have to be more Mexican than the Mexicans and more American than the Americans, both at the same time! It's exhausting!
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 : 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.
