Jewel: No, that's not what I meant.
Blu: Look, Jewel, I can't spend my life walking around following you wherever you're going.
Jewel: Hey, it's not my fault you can't fly.
Pedro: [to Nico as they watch Blu and Jewel] Awkward!

Rafael: [as he notices Blu and Jewel starting to argue] Okay! Okay! You know what? This is good. Just clear the air. Just be completely honest with each other.
Blu: You want honesty? Fine. Fine, I can be honest. I don't belong here. In fact, I never wanted to come here in the first place. And... and... and you know what? I hate Samba!
Pedro: [Rafael, Nico and Pedro gasp with shock and Nico bursts into tears] Hey! That's a little too far!
Nico: [to Pedro] Make the mean bird take it back!
Blu: Yeah! I said it! Every song sounds exactly the same.
[he mimics the samba music and dance]
Blu: Tico-taco, ya-ya-ya! Tico-taco, ya-ya-ya! Urrgh! I'm tico-taco outta here.
Jewel: Fine! See you around, pet!
[Jewel flies away and Blu walks away]
Rafael: No, no, ,no! Wait, wait, wait! Come back! You belong together! You are Juliet to his Romeo! Sure they both die in the end, but you get my point!

Rafael: Ah, young love! Always so melodramatic. All right, boys. Go after her.

Pedro: [as they watch Nigel take Jewel by force] Hey! Get back here! Ain't nobody mess with a friend of Pedro! I ain't havin' it! It's on!
[he starts punching the air]
Nico: What are you on? Did you see the talons on that guy?
Pedro: Talons? Maybe it's on next time.
[they turn and fly away]
Nico: Ralfieeee!
Pedro: Blu! Help!
Nico: Help!

Nico: [singing] Wasn't really thinking, wasn't looking , wasn't searching for an answer/ In the moonlight/ When I saw your face/ Saw you looking at me, saw you peeking out from under moon beams/ Through the palm trees/ Swaying in the breeze/ I know I'm feeling so much more than ever before/ And so I'm giving more to you than I thought I could do/ Don't know how it happened, don't know why but you don't really need a reason/ When the stars shine/ Just to fall in love/ Made to love each other, made to be together for a life time/ In the sunshine/ Flying in the sky/ I know I'm feeling so much more than ever before And so I'm giving more to you/ Than I thought I could do/ Oh Yeah... / Now I know love is real/ So it's sky high, as the angels try/ Letting you and I/ Fly love

Nico: So, are you here for carnival?
Blu: Oh, actually, I'm just here to meet uh... a girl.
Nico: Aahhh, a girl.
Blu: Yes.
Nico: Little word of advice. You make the first move. Brazilian ladies respond to confidence.
Blu: Oh, right.
Pedro: Yeah! It's all about swagger. You gotta puff out that chest, swing that tail, eyes narrow, like some kind of crazy love hawk!
[he squawks like a hawk]
Nico: But first, we gotta bust you out!
Blu: What?
Pedro: Yeah! I'mma pop that cage open like a soda can!
Blu: No!
[Pedro tries desperately to break the metal bar on the cage Blu's in]
Blu: No, no, that's okay.
[Pedro, exhausted, stops pounding the metal bar]
Nico: You call that poppin'?
Pedro: Wooh! This thing's robust!
Blu: No, no, no, guys, really. I'm fine. The cage is great. Love the cage.
Nico: Oh, well. Suit yourself.
Pedro: Hey, don't forget. Love hawk!
[he squawks and flies away with Nico]

Pedro: Clock late.

Luiz: So you're going to the Amazon? That place is wild!
Blu: I'm sure it's nothing I can't handle. Wait, how wild?
Luiz: Real wild.
Nico: There's snakes that swallow you whole.
Pedro: Mosquitoes that suck out your blood like a Slurpee.
Luiz: Flesh-eating piranhas that eat... flesh.

Nico: [from the trailer] Now... THAT'S A DUET!
