    • (Manny defeated Sartana, is critically injuried, and is in his father's arms) Manny: (weakly) Father...please...forgive...me White Pantera: Yes! Mijo! Yes, I forgive you! Manny: (suddenly heated to perfect health, much to White Pantera's surprise) Cool, see ya!

    • Rodolfo: Manuel Pablo Gutierrez O'Brien Equihua Rivera! I am very disappointed in you! You need to learn to be responsible! (Sigh, calmer tone) Mijo I always said that you had the heart of a true hero but maybe... maybe I was wrong. El Tigre: No dad. I know nothing can replace Senior Chapi. Grandpapi: (Crying) Why? WHY!?! El Tigre: But let me prove to you I can make this right. I'll pay you back for all this damage. Rodolfo: And how do you expect to do that? El Tigre: I'll... get a job! Two jobs if I have to. Three! Rodolfo: You're doing the right thing my son. El Tigre: I'll make you proud dad. I promise.

    • Frida: What I tell ya? Villainy doesn't pay. El Tigre: What!? You said being a hero was lame. Frida: (Couple seconds of silence) Huh? That does sound like something I'd say.

    • Rodolfo: (After Manny mentions throwing away Sr. Chapi's girlfriend) Manny, don't re-open that wound! Senior Chapi is very sensitive. Manny: Sensitive! He's the got the brains of a flying hammer! He only knows how to say one thing! Sr. Chapi: Viva Pantelones. Manny: And his favorite food is earwax.

    • El Tigre: You know I think I've learned a valuable lesson today. Frida: Um, Manny... El Tigre: Probably something about... Teamwork! Frida: Manny!
