Héctor: [sings] Remember me, though I have to say goodbye / Remember me, don't let it make you cry / For even if I'm far away, I hold you in my heart / I sing a secret song to you, each night we are apart / Remember me, though I have to travel far / Remember me, each time you hear a sad guitar / Know that I'm with you, the only way that I can be / Until you're in my arms again, remember me...

[from trailer]

Clerk: [sneezes] I am terribly allergic.

Miguel: But Dante doesn't have any hair.

Clerk: And I don't have a nose, and yet, here we are.

Ernesto de la Cruz: [from trailer] I have to sing. It's not just *in* me... It *is* Me.

[Mama Imelda has just taken Héctor's protrait from De La Cruz and is about to give Miguel her blessing to send him back home]

Mamá Imelda: Miguel, I give you my blessing, to go home and...

Miguel: [questioningly] ... to forget about music?

[Mama Imelda looks at Héctor and smiles]

Mamá Imelda: ...And never forget how much your family cares for you.

Miguel: [to Mama Imelda; about Hector] He was trying to take me home.

Mamá Imelda: He left us!

Miguel: Yes, but he was going to come back to you, but Ernesto De La Cruz poisoned him!

[the Rivera family gasps]

Héctor: [mournfully] It is true.

[Hector suddenly shudders; meaning he is being forgotten]

Miguel: Hector!

Héctor: Please... you must help me! It's Coco!

Mamá Imelda: [realizing what's happening; shocked] She's forgetting you!

Miguel: [to the Rivera family] Look, what I'm trying to say is... is that although you may never forgive him, you should NEVER forget him!

Héctor: [sadly] I never meant to leave you, Imelda. I always meant to come back, but I never got to. I'm sorry.

Mamá Imelda: [contritely] I have tried *many times* to forget you...

Mamá Imelda: [to Héctor; after Miguel reveals that Héctor didn't abandoned her, but was killed while trying to come back to her and that Ernesto took Héctor's portrait] I will never forgive you...

[suddenly smiles]

Mamá Imelda: But I will help you.

Ernesto de la Cruz: [to Mamá Imelda] Don't I know you?

MamÃf¡ Imelda: [Smacks Ernesto with her shoe] That's for murdering the love of my life!

Ernesto de la Cruz: [Confused] Who the...?

Héctor: She's talking about me!


Héctor: I am the love of your life?

MamÃf¡ Imelda: I don't know, I am still angry at you!

[from trailer]

Héctor: What are you doing?

Miguel: I'm walking like a skeleton.

Héctor: No, skeletons don't walk like that.

Miguel: That's how *you* walk.

Héctor: No, I don't.

Abuelita: No music!

Mamá Imelda: [seeing Miguel in the Land of the Dead; surprised] Miguel?

Miguel: Mama Imelda?

Mamá Imelda: [puts her hands on her hips; suspiciously to the rest of the Rivera family] WHAT is going on?

Miguel: I thought I was related to a murderer! You're a total upgrade!

[Héctor gives Miguel an annoyed look]

[Repeated line]

Abuelita: [to any musicans; shouts] No Music!

Ernesto de la Cruz: [after Hector is taking away by security for attacking Ernesto after learning the truth about his death] I apologize, where were we?

Miguel: You were going to give me your blessing.

Ernesto de la Cruz: Yes, uh, si. Miguel, my reputation it is, ah, very important to me. I would hate to have you think...

Miguel: That you murdered Hector, for his songs?

Ernesto de la Cruz: Ha ha. You don't think that, do you?

Miguel: I... no! Everyone knows you're, the... the good guy. Papa Ernesto, my blessing?

Ernesto de la Cruz: [Ernesto looks at Miguel's marigold petal, and then crushes it into powder] Security, take care of Miguel. He'll be... extending his stay.

Miguel: [as he is taken away by security] WHAT? BUT I'M YOUR FAMILY!

Ernesto de la Cruz: And Hector was my best friend. Sucess doesn't come for free, Miguel. You have to be willing to, do whatever it takes to... seize your moment. I know you understand.

Miguel: [Miguel is dragged away] No, NO!

Héctor: [Ernesto takes Miguel at the edge of the stadium] Ernesto, STOP! Leave the boy alone.

Ernesto de la Cruz: I've worked too hard, Hector. Too hard to let him destroy everything.

Héctor: He's a living child, Ernesto.

Ernesto de la Cruz: HE'S A THREAT! You think I'd let him go back to the land of the living WITH YOUR PHOTO? TO KEEP YOUR MEMORY ALIVE? No.


Ernesto de la Cruz: I am Ernesto de la Cruz, the greatest musician of all time!

Miguel: Hector's the REAL musician, you're just the guy who murdered him and stole his songs!

Ernesto de la Cruz: [grabs Miguel by the shirt collar] I am the one who is willing to do what it takes to seize my moment, whatever it takes.

[Throws Miguel of the stadium]
