The Puerto Rican Connection/Script
Show: Manny Escuela combines a powerful urban masculinity with a lighter side.
Jay: Powerful... Lighter side!
Show: Here, shortly after cleaning up five blocks, he touches a group of women in the art of competitive street dancing.
Jay: Teaches a group of women...
Manny: Yo man! You made me look gay, man. I warned you, bro.
Jay: What? No? You don't look gay. You look a little metrosexual or something.
Jay: It's good, it's good.
Manny: Man, who the hell ever heard of a metrosexual ex-gangster, man?
Manny: I'm a lord, man, not a lady. This show was gonna make me famous!
Jay: You are gonna be famous...
Manny: I got the film genius here making me look like a transsexual, or something, on TV. And now some punks been talkin' all kinds of shit too.
Niko: What punks?
Manny: Man, bitches I used to roll with. Guys caught up in the game. Punks in too deep, man. Yo I tried, man, I tried to be a good guy. I said, I'm reformed, man. But I'm pure ghetto, man. And this show's garbage.
Jay: Oh come on.
Manny: We don't have the killer shot, man.
Jay: What? Jeez.
Manny: We need to go bust somebody, man.
Niko: Do what you want, as long as it doesn't involve me.
Manny: Hey, yo, we're brethren right? Give it up, man. A'ight, man. Yo listen, can you shut these punks up for me please?
Niko: Where are they?
Manny: They're gonna be comin' in on the El Train, man. From Algonquin to Dukes, man. Hey I owe you, man. I owe you big time.
Manny: You see that, man? You see that, man? Yo, that is streets right there, man. Not none of this shit. Got me dancing in skirts with people in the neighborhood, man. What the fuck is that, man?
(If Niko loses the train)
Niko: Where is the goddamn train?
Niko: How am I meant to catch this fucking train?
Niko: I'm losing the fucking train?
Niko: Fucking Manny, making me chase stupid train.
Niko: Shit, I'm losing it.
(The targets exit the subway station and get in a car)
Gangster: Damn, son. I hate taking the train. When we going get us a Patriot or something? Ride in style.
Gangster: When we make us some money, mamahuevo.
(Niko follows the targets to a nearby Burger Shot where they spot him)
Gangster: That boy be giving us the eyeball.
