West Side Story (1961) Poster

Natalie Wood: Maria



  • Maria : All of you! You all killed him! And my brother, and Riff. Not with bullets, or guns, with hate. Well now I can kill, too, because now I have hate!

  • Tony : You're not thinking I'm someone else?

    Maria : I know you are not.

    Tony : Or that we've met before?

    Maria : I know we have not.

    Tony : I felt, I knew something never before was going to happen, had to happen. But this is so much more.

    Maria : My hands are cold.

    [he takes them in his] 

    Maria : Yours too.

    [he moves them to his face] 

    Maria : So warm.

    [she moves his to hers] 

    Tony : So beautiful.

    Maria : Beautiful.

    Tony : It's so much to believe. You're not making a joke?

    Maria : I have not yet learned how to joke that way. I think now I never will.

  • Maria : My brother is a silly watchdog!

    Bernardo : Ah, my sister is a precious jewel!

    Anita : What am I, cut glass?

  • Tony : I- I didn't believe hard enough.

    Maria : Loving is enough.

    Tony : Not here. They won't let us be.

    Maria : Then we'll run away.

    Tony : Yeah, we can.

    Maria : Yes.

    Tony : We will...

    Maria : [singing]  Hold my hand and we are halfway there, hold my hand and I'll take you there. Somehow! Someday! Some...

  • [last lines] 

    Maria : Te adoro, Antone.

  • Maria : [after discovering that Bernardo is killed]  Make it not true, please make it not true!

  • Maria : [singing]  I feel pretty, oh so pretty! I feel pretty, and witty, and gay!

  • Maria : If Chino hurts him, if he touches him, I swear to you I'll...

    Anita : You'll do what Tony did to Bernardo?

    Maria : I love Tony.

    Anita : I know. I loved Benardo.

  • Lieutenant Schrank : At the gym last night, your brother got into a heavy argument because you danced with the wrong boy.

    Maria : Yes

    Lieutenant Schrank : Who was that boy?

    Maria : Another from my country.

    Lieutenant Schrank : And his name?

    Maria : Jose.
