  • [singing] 

    Bernardo : I'd like to go back to San Juan.

    Anita : I know a boat you can get on!

  • Maria : My brother is a silly watchdog!

    Bernardo : Ah, my sister is a precious jewel!

    Anita : What am I, cut glass?

  • 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.
