Alejandro Murrieta: [whispering to his baby son] And so it was. Lighting split the sky, thunder shook the earth, and then all was quiet. The great warrior known as Zorro was gone. The people of the land gave him a hero's funeral, the largest anyone had ever seen. They came from far and wide to say farewell to their brave and noble champion. But don't worry, little Joaquin. Whenever great deeds are remembered, your grandfather will live on. For there must always, always be a Zorro. And some day, when he's needed, we will see him again... on his fearsome steed Tornado, riding like the wind, his sword blazing in the sun... leaping, jumping, swinging through the air... fighting like a lion. Fighting like a tiger. Fighting...

Elena: How can I refuse such a man? Do you know where I might find him?
Alejandro Murrieta: You know Zorro. He could be anywhere.

Alejandro Murrieta: [upon first meeting her] Be careful senorita, there are dangerous men about.
Elena: Well if you see one, be sure to point him out.

Don Diego de la Vega: [to Elena as he lays dying] The world is a very strange place... to have found you at last - only to lose you again.
Elena: You will never lose me, Father.
