Quotes

Kata: Pocho's the leader of Ninth Street, he thinks he's the baddest cholo in L.A county. He always tries to act all hard. Some girls think this makes him more of a man but I know Pocho's real story.

Pocho: I heard what you done tonight. You're getting a big reputation. You and Kata. Maybe one day you'll be as big as me.

Kata: Maybe we already are.

Kikicho: [after telling Kata he won't get her pregnant] You always told me you were running from that kind of life. You wanted something better.

Kata: I changed my mind. I'll be different than my mother I'll be better, I promise.

Kikicho: I'm getting out Kata. I'm going to be one of those gang-prevention guys that talk in schools. Homies don't listen to anyone but homies, so maybe they'll listen to me. Maggie's doing it with me.

Kata: Maggie? You and her?

[gets off his lap]

Kata: And I came here like some fool chavala asking you to get me pregnant. How did this happen?

Kikicho: We started talking, the day you left me at the field.

Kata: [after a pause] Maggie's good.

Kata: [to Pocho] It's low what you're gonna do to her.

Kata: You knew Raul wasn't the guy that capped Ana.

Pocho: I knew. But Ana, she never let me touch her and then she goes off with some other guy, from another neighbourhood! I wanted to kill him when I found out.

Kata: Then you should have shot him yourself you shouldn't have used me.

Pocho: I know. But if I did it, everyone would know that he had been with Ana and I was jealous. If you did, people would think he killed her. I wanted the secret to die with him.

Kata: Every night, I see more descansos by my house. My neighbourhood's a war zone. We fight over everything, even crumbling cement streets that don't even belong to us. The mothers make a human wall between the neighbourhoods, trying to stop the killings. My mother wasn't one of them.
