Action: If you don't leave us stay out on the streets all night, we're liable to turn into a bunch of juvenile delinquents.
Krupke: Listen, I know yus guys was cookin' up somethin' at the dance tonight. So don't think yus are gonna put nothin' over on me...Now go on, get a move on, all of yus. And don't let me catch none of yus around here when I get back.


Maria: What rumble?
Anita: Oh, well, uh, 'Nardo's Sharks and those boys at the dance.
Maria: They fight each other tonight?
Anita: They don't play patsy.
Maria: Why must they always fight?
Anita: Well, you saw how they dance, like they got to get rid of something quick. That's how they fight.
Maria: To get rid of what?
Anita: Too much feeling, and they do get rid of it. Boy, after a fight, that brother of yours is so healthy.

Maria: You must go and stop it.
Tony: I have stopped it. It's only gonna be a fist fight now between two of 'em...
Maria: Any fight is no good for us.
Tony: Maria, everything is good for us. We got magic.
Maria: Listen and hear me. You must go and stop it.
Tony: It means that much to you?
Maria: Yes.
Tony: All right, I will then.
Maria: I believe you. You do have magic.
Tony: Of course, I've got you.

Maria: Stay with me. Don't leave me...Hold me...Tighter.
Tony: It'll be all right, I know it. We're really together now.
Maria: But it's not us. It's everything around us.
Tony: Then I'll take you away where nothing can get to us - not anyone or anything.

Anita: Bernardo was right. If one of you was lying in the street bleeding, I'd walk by and spit on you.
Action: Go on and go. Don't tell Chino that Tony's hidin' in the cellar.
Anita: Don't you touch me! I got a message for your American buddy. You tell that murderer that Maria's never going to meet him. You tell him that Chino found out about them and shot her. She's dead.
Doc: When do you kids stop? You make this world lousy.
Action: We didn't make it, Doc.
Doc: Get out of here.

It is most important that I have a wonderful time at the dancing tonight...because tonight is the real beginning of my life as a young lady of America.

[singing] I feel pretty, oh so pretty, I feel pretty and witty and gay,
And I pity, any girl who isn't me today.
I feel charming, oh so charming, it's alarming how charming I feel.
And so pretty, that I hardly can believe I'm real.

[singing] Today the minutes seem like hours, the hours go so slowly and still the sky is light.
Oh moon, grow bright and make this endless day endless night.

[praying about Tony killing Bernardo] Make it not be true!...I will do anything. Make me die.

[singing] Oh no Anita, no, Anita, no, it isn't true, not for me
It's true for you, not for me.
I hear your words and in my head I know they're smart
But my heart, Anita, but my heart knows they're wrong.

[singing] Right or wrong, and he needs me too.
I love him, we're one, there's nothing to be done.
Not a thing I can do, but hold him, hold him forever;
Be with him now, tomorrow and all of my life.
When love comes so strong,
There is no right or wrong;
Your love is your life.

How many bullets are left, Chino? Enough for you, and you? All of you. You all killed him! And my brother, and Riff. Not with bullets and guns - with hate. Well, I can kill too because now I have hate! How many can I kill, Chino? How many and still have one bullet left for me?

Te adoro, Anton.

[singing] 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.

[singing] I'll see my love tonight and for us stars will stop where they are.
