  • TRIVIA (5)

  • QUOTES (21)

    • Maya: (about Miguel) Mi hermano. Sometimes I don't know what he would ever do without me. Ha! Que haria sin mi.

    • Miguel: Gracias, Maya. It was nice of you to try. Even if we do end up on some sports bloopers video.

    • Elena: You simply do not run onto a baseball field in the middle of a game.
      Maya: But Abuelita, I sort of wanted to help those poor hot people who had to wear the moose costume.
      Elena: Maya!
      Miguel: And I was trying to stop her before she embarrassed the whole family.
      Elena: Eso no se hace. It doesn't matter what the reason is. You cannot run onto the baseball field like that. It's not safe.
      Guard: With all due respect, you also ran onto the baseball field in the middle of a ball game.
      Elena: I am their abuela. Their grandmother. I was trying to stop them before they embarrassed the whole family.
      Maya: I know I shouldn't have done it, Abuelita. It's just sometimes my heart tells me what to do, and my brain just takes a siesta.

    • Miguel: (about the commotion) I just want everyone to know I had nothing to do with this.

    • Maya: (while chasing Orlando) Vamos! He's getting away!
      Miguel: Maya, he's not a criminal!

    • Elena: (sees baseball dropping) It's coming right at us! Uso el guante?
      Man: Yes! The glove, Elena! The glove! The glove!

    • Miguel: Maya, I saw you singing out on the baseball field.
      Tito: Te gusto? (begins singing again) Oh, say...(gets mouth covered)

    • Maya: (about group of people) Who are they?
      Chrissy: Our fans. It looks like they want our autographs.
      Maya, Tito, & Chrissy: (realize trouble) Run!

    • Tito: Otra vez! We sing again! (begins) Oh, say...
      Chrissy: (blocks mike) No, Tito, no.

    • Man: (about Maya, Tito, and Chrissy in disguise) These are the worst singers I've heard since that troop of mimes did the anthem!
      Elena: Ay, es verdad! My grandchildren and their friends sing better!

    • Chrissy: (observes own, Maya, and Tito's disguises) Oh. We look like cat people.
      Maya: Andale, Chrissy. Fashion designers charge top dollar for this stuff.

    • Man: You ever try on a real baseball glove?
      Elena: (accepts ball and glove) Un guante de beisbol. It's heavy, no?
      Man: You see, here's what you do: Pound the glove with your fist like you're making a spot for the ball to land. (demonstrates)
      (Elena pounds lightly)
      Man: Come on, do it like you mean it! (gets knocked over backward) Whoa!
      Elena: Like that?

    • Tito: My ice cream!
      Maya: No, no, no! It's time for Plan B!
      Chrissy: What's Plan B?
      Maya: "Be" quiet and let me think.

    • Chrissy: The locker room? Maya, they'll never let us in here.
      Maya: "Never" is not in my vocabulary, Chrissy. Never say "never".
      Chrissy: Okay. They will not let us in here...ever!

    • Maya: Wow, what a view! (panting) You can see the ocean!
      Chrissy: What ocean? We don't even live near the ocean!

    • Maya: Chrissy. Hi. Me. You gotta help me get Orlando Flores' autograph. Don't worry. I have a plan.
      Chrissy: Uh oh! I smell trouble!

    • Maya: Ay, Miguel! Eso es!
      Miguel: When you say "eso es" like that, I get a hollow cramping pain in my stomach right under my ribs! Right here!

    • Maya: (about Miguel's card) Ooh! That is one pricey piece of cardboard.

    • Maya: I have a lot of dreams. Not nighttime dreams like, you know, when you're trapped in a sinking canoe with your gym teacher and a monkey? I mean daytime dreams. Like this one.
      (Scene changes to performance theater)
      Maya: For my next number...
      Woman: (runs onstage) Dr. Santos! Dr. Santos!
      Maya: Please! I'm performing!
      Woman: You are the only one who can do the life-saving brain surgery on the mayor!
      Maya: My professional obligations leave me no choice! Hold my mike, please. (gives microphone to woman and leaves)
      (Scene changes back)

    • Maya: Imagine! Who would act so crazy just to get an autograph?

    • Woman: Get out there and sell! And don't come back until you've sold every hot dog, soda, and ice cream sandwich in those things.
      Maya: Yes, ma'am. Of course, ma'am.
      Woman: Ugh. Teenagers, I tell ya. By the way, you boys? You need to start shaving.
