Officer Krupke, you’ve done it again.
This boy don’t need a job, he needs a year in the pen.
It ain’t just a question of misunderstood;
Deep down inside him, he’s no good!

Gee, Officer Krupke.

Get ’em Riff

He is the old married woman

He murdered your love he murdered mine.

How do I know what goes on 10 feet above my head? But you better be home in FIFTEEN minutes.

How do you fire this gun Chino? Just by pulling this little trigger? How many bullets are left in the gun Chino enough for you and you and you. How many can I kill and still have one left for me? You all killed him all of you not with bullets and guns but with hate and now I can kill becasue now I have hate.

I am going back with a Cadillac!

I Feel Pretty.

I have not yet learned to joke that way. I think now Inever will.

I love you. Yes.

I’m not one of them. But your not one of us.

If they say blades, I say blades … If they say guns, I say guns! I want the Jets to be number ONE!

Joe: You can call me Joe
Mia: *Laughs* Joey

Maria: All of you, you all killed him, not with bullets and guns but with hate, well i can kill too, because now I have hate.

Maria: I think i will tell Mama and Papa about you and Nardo in the balcony of the movies! Anita: I will rip this dress to shreds! Maria: No! But if you could perhaps manage to lower the neck? Anita: Next year.

Nardo-tonite everything will be settled.0 Anita-first settle your stomach. Nardo-nevermind my stomach. Anita-well I mind you nose and head BROKEN. Girls- BROKEN!? Anita- yes he’s using Maria as an excuse to start World War III. Nardo-It is more than that. Anita- More than what? she was only dancing. Nardo-with an american…. who is really a pollack. Anita- Says the spic. Nardo- you are not soo cute.

No, I’m scared enough for the both of you.

Oh go walk to streets like your sister! I beat you up twice and I’ll do it again!

Oh go weara skirt! I got scabby knees!

Oh No Anita No. It is not true not for me True for you not for me I hear your words and they are smart but in my heart Anita but my heart!!!

One Hand, One Heart.

Puerto hearts devotion….let it sink back in the ocean. Always
the hurricane’s blowing. Always the population growing. And the money owing
and the sunlight streaming and the native’s steaming. I like the
island Manhattan (you know you do)

So much to believe…you’re not making a joke?

So why don’t you leave?
Cause your ma’s hot for me.

Te adoro, Anton.

That stupid boy–he killed your brother! Forget that boy and find another! Stick to your own kind, stick to your own kind!
