  • In Gimbels, there are lots of dresses that fit me.
  • [singing] I feel pretty, oh so pretty, I feel pretty and witty and bright,
    And I pity, any girl who isn't me tonight.
    I feel charming, oh so charming, it's alarming how charming I feel.
    And so pretty, that I hardly can believe I'm real.


  • It's like I'm always just about to fall off the edge of the world's tallest building. I stopped falling the second I saw you.
  • [singing] Maria... I just met a girl named Maria, and suddenly that name
    Will never be the same to me.
    Maria - I just kissed a girl named Maria
    And suddenly I found how wonderful a sound can be
    Maria - say it loud and there's music playing
    Say it soft and it's almost like praying.


  • Tonight is about family.
  • [about Tony] He's a polack, that's what he is - a big, dumb polack!


  • [to Maria] Get your shoes on. I want to dance!
  • [to the band leader] Oye, Javi! Ponle fuego, ¡vamos!
  • [to Tony after he and Maria are caught together] Do you want to start World War III?
  • [after being assaulted by the Jets] You think I want to stay here? In this city full of ugly little animals like you? No gracias. Yo no soy Americana. Yo soy Puertorriqueña! [to Valentina] Tell Tony... you tell that murderer... Maria ain't coming. Chino, he found out about them. Tony and Maria. He shot her. Maria is dead. You tell him that.


  • [singing] There's a place for us, Somewhere a place for us
    Peace and quiet and open air wait for us, Somewhere.
    There's a time for us, Some day a time for us
    Time together with time to spare, time to look, time to care, Someday.
    Somewhere we'll find a new way of living.
    We'll find a way of forgiving, Somewhere.

Lieutenant Schrank

  • What's a gang without its terrain, its turf? You're a month or two away from finding out, one step ahead of the wrecking ball. And in this uncertain world, the only thing you can count on is me.


Tony: You don't need me helping you screw up your life.
Riff: You know how I get. I will start running my mouth. You got command. You are West Side legendary! And, Tony. Tony, the Jets. I gave them my word you'd show.

Valentina: Tony, I don't tell you who to hang out with, but-
Tony: [in an exaggerated Puerto Rican accent] -Bu' dose boysss are yuvenile delinquen'! Dey'rrrrrre no goo' for jou and jou better wash ou'!
Valentina: [in an exaggerated New York accent] Hey, you make funna da way I tawk one more time, blondie!

Maria: The boys think I'm a kid.
Anita: You are a kid, kiddo.

Maria: You're tall.
Tony: Yeah, and... you're not.
Maria: You're not Puerto Rican.
Tony: [amused] You're just figuring that out?
Maria: From down here I wasn't sure.
Tony: Is it okay? That I'm not?
Maria: I don't know. Creo que sí, pero...como yo nunca - Since I never seen you before. This is my first time dancing in New York City, so you tell me. Is it OK?
Tony: Not much I can do about it, but— [Maria suddenly tries to kiss Tony. Startled, he pulls back.] Sorry, you just caught me by surprise is all. I'm a by-the-book type, so...
Maria: By the book?
Tony: Try me again?
[They kiss]
Luz: [offscreen] ¡María! ¡María! ¿Qué haces? ¡Sal de ahí ahora mismo!

Maria: [singing] Tonight, tonight, it all began tonight, I saw you and the world went away.
Tonight, tonight, there's only you tonight, what you are, what you do, what you say.
Tony: Today, all day I had the feeling a miracle would happen, I know now I was right.
For here you are and what was just a world is a star tonight.

[Tony begins to climb down the balcony.]
Maria: Wait, wait! [Tony climbs back up.] I forgot why I called you.
Tony: I'll wait 'til you remember.
Maria: Tony is Antonio?
Tony: Anton.
Maria: Te adoro, Anton.
Tony: Te adoro, Maria.
Tony and Maria: [singing] Good night, good night,
Sleep well and when you dream.
Dream of me

Anita: [singing] Puerto Rico, you lovely island,
Island of tropical breezes.
Always the pineapples growing,
Always the coffee blossoms blowing.
Woman #1: And the money owing.
Woman #2: And the babies crying.
Woman #3: And the people trying.
Anita: I like the island Manhattan.
Rosalina: I know you do!
Anita: Smoke on your pipe and put that in!
Girls: [singing] I like to be in America,
OK by me in America,
Everything free in America!
Bernardo: [singing] For a small fee in America.
Anita: [singing] Buying on credit is so nice.
Bernardo: [singing] One look at us and they charge twice.

Bernardo: You keep away from him, as long as you're in my house.
Maria: I'm a grown-up now, Bernardo. I'm gonna think for myself.

Tony: [learning to speak Spanish with Valentina] I'm happy to see you again.
Valentina: Me alegra verte de nuevo.
[Tony takes the pencil and writes it down]
Tony: Me... alegra... verte... de nuevo.
Valentina: So, who are you so happy to see again?
Tony: Last one: "You look beautiful."
Valentina: ¿De veras?
Tony: De...veras.
Valentina: ¿Una puertorriqueña?
[Tony grins, shrugs. She looks very concerned]
Tony: I wanna do like Doc, find me a Puerto Rican gal!

Tony: [singing] Make of our hands one hand, Make of our hearts one heart
Make of our vows one last vow, Only death will part us now.
Maria: Make of our lives one life, Day after day one life
Tony and Maria: Now it begins, now we start
One hand, one heart, even death won't part us now.

Chino: And Riff, he got stabbed, and...
Maria: Tony. Chino!
Chino: Tony killed Bernardo.
Maria: Chino! Liar!

Anita: He will never be safe here.
Maria: Sí, lo sé.
Anita: And no one will ever forgive him.
Maria: Will you?
Anita: You can't ever ask me that.
Maria: Will you forgive me?
Anita: Te quiero, mi niña. For he will have to go away, and you will have to go with him.

Maria: [singing to Tony after Chino shoots him] Only you, you’re the only thing I’ll see forever. In my eyes, in my words, and in everything I do. Nothing else but you ever. [Tony dies. As she lays him down on the ground gently; reaches her hand in front of Chino] Give it to me.
[Maria takes the gun after Chino refused]
Maria: [examining the gun] How do you fire it? Just... pull this?! [Points the gun at Chino] How many bullets are left? Enough for you? [Points at Ice] And you? [Points at Diesel and the other Jets] All of you? I can kill now because I hate now. [Points at the Sharks] I hate now. [She points at Chino again] How many can I kill, Chino? How many? And still have one bullet left for me? [Instead surrenders and goes back to Tony's body; kisses Tony] Te adoro, Anton. [the Jets go to their fallen as Ice tries to help Maria but Maria shrugs him off] No, don't touch him!
Braulio: [comforting Maria] Maria, ya es tiempo. Vente con nosotros.
