    • Miguel: Mam? Imelda?
    • [puts her hands on her hips; suspiciously to the rest of the Rivera family]
    • Mam? Imelda: WHAT is going on?
    • [Mam? Imelda has just taken H?ctor's protrait from De La Cruz and is about to give Miguel her blessing to send him back home]

    • [questioningly]
    • Miguel: ... to forget about music?
    • [Mam? Imelda looks at H?ctor and smiles]
    • Mam? Imelda: ...And never forget how much your family cares for you.
    • Mam? Imelda: Mijo, I was so worried.
    • Miguel: He tried to go home to you and Coco. But de la Cruz murdered him!
    • [sorrowfully]
    • H?ctor: It's true, Imelda.
    • Miguel: And so what if it's true? You leave me alone with a child to raise, and I'm just supposed to forgive you?
    • H?ctor: Imelda, I...
    • [Suddenly shudders and collapses to his knees, Imelda gasps]
    • H?ctor: I'm running out of time. It's Coco.
    • Mam? Imelda: She's forgetting you.
    • Miguel: You don't have to forgive him. But you shouldn't forget him.
    • Mam? Imelda: I wanted to forget you. I wanted Coco to forget you, too, but...
    • H?ctor: This is my fault, not yours. I'm sorry, Imelda.
    • [Hugs Miguel, then looks to H?ctor resentfully]
    • Mam? Imelda: Miguel, if we help you get his photo, you will return home? No more music?
    • Miguel: Family comes first.
    • Mam? Imelda: I... I can't forgive you. But I will help you. So how do we get to de la Cruz?
    • Miguel: I... might know a way.
    • Mam? Imelda: And you, how many times must I turn you away?
    • H?ctor: Imelda...
    • Mam? Imelda: I want nothing to do with you! Not in life, not in death! I spent decades protecting my family from *your* mistakes. He spends five minutes with you, and I have to fish him out of a sinkhole!
    • Miguel: I wasn't in there because of H?ctor. He was in there because of me. He was just trying to get me home! I didn't want to listen, but he was right! Nothing is more important than family. I'm ready to accept your blessing. And your conditions. But first, I need to find de la Cruz. To get H?ctor's photo!
    • Mam? Imelda: What?
    • Miguel: So, he can see Coco again. H?ctor should be on our ofrenda. He's part of our family.

    • [as he is taken away by security]
    • Miguel: WHAT? BUT I'M YOUR FAMILY!
    • Ernesto de la Cruz: And H?ctor was my best friend. Success 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: No, NO!
    • 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 H?ctor, 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.
    • [Ernesto looks at H?ctor's photo, and then puts it in his pocket]
    • Miguel: Papa Ernesto, my blessing?
    • [Ernesto looks at Miguel's marigold petal, and then crushes it into powder]

    • [Ernesto takes Miguel at the edge of the stadium]

    • Miguel: YOU'RE A COWARD!
    • 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!
    • [the audience gasps]
    • Guy in audience: Murdered?
    • [grabs Miguel by the shirt collar]
    • Ernesto de la Cruz: I am the one who is willing to do what it takes to seize my moment, whatever it takes.
    • [Throws Miguel off the stadium]
    • [shudders and collapses to the floor]
    • H?ctor: Leave the boy alone.

    • [the other family members turn the camera towards Ernesto and sets it to show through the big screens in front of the audience]
    • Ernesto de la Cruz: HE'S A THREAT!
    • [the audience gasps]

    • Miguel: This isn't a dream, then - you're all really out there.
    • T?a Victoria: You thought we weren't?
    • Miguel: Well, I don't know - I thought it might have been one of those made-up things adults tell kids! Like vitamins.
    • T?a Victoria: Miguel, vitamins are a real thing!
    • Miguel: Well, now I'm thinking maybe they could be.
    • Miguel: Are those... Alebrijes?
    • T?o Oscar: Real Alebrijes. Spirit creatures.
    • T?a Rosita: They guide souls on their journey.
    • T?o Felipe: Watch your step - they make 'caquitas' everywhere.
    • [explaining her new performance piece to Miguel]
    • Frida Kahlo: Darkness - and from the darkness... a giant papaya! Dancers emerge from the papaya, and the dancers are all me! And they go to drink from the milk of their mother, who is a cactus, but, who is also me! And her milk is not milk, but tears!
    • [pause]
    • Frida Kahlo: Is it too obvious?
    • [unsure]
    • Miguel: I think it's... just the right amount of obvious.
    • [singing for Chicharr?n]
    • H?ctor: Well everyone knows Juanita / Her eyes each a different color / Her teeth stick out / and her chin goes in / and her...
    • [he hesitates]
    • H?ctor: ... knuckles, they drag on the floor.
    • Chicharr?n: Those aren't the words!
    • H?ctor: There are children present.
    • [singing]
    • H?ctor: Her hair is like a briar / She stands in a bow-legged stance / And if I weren't so ugly / She'd possibly give me a chance.
    • [chuckles]
    • Chicharr?n: Brings back memories. Gracias.
    • [exhales deeply as he vanishes]
    • [after watching Chicharr?n disappear]
    • Miguel: Wait... what happened?
    • [sadly]
    • H?ctor: He's been forgotten. When there's no one left in the living world who remembers you, you disappear from this world. We call it the Final Death.
    • Miguel: Where did he go?
    • H?ctor: No one knows.
    • Miguel: But I've met him! I could remember him when I go back.
    • H?ctor: No. It doesn't work like that, chamaco. Our memories, they have to be passed down by those who knew us in life - in the stories they tell about us. But there's no one left alive to pass down Cheech's stories.
    • [shrugs]
    • H?ctor: Hey, it happens to everyone eventually.
    • [to Mam? Coco, pointing at each of his cheeks]

    • Mam? Imelda: What?
    • Pap? Julio: We ran into a, a...
    • [the family parts to reveal Miguel]
    • [Gasp]
    • Mam? Imelda: Miguel?
    • [Gives a hesitant wave]
    • Miguel: Mam? Imelda.
    • Mam? Imelda: What is going on?
    • [Office door opens]
    • Clerk: You the Rivera family?
    • [States matter-of-factly]
    • Clerk: Well, you're cursed.
    • Departures Agent: Sorry, se?ora it says here no one put up your photo.
    • Mam? Imelda: My family always, ALWAYS puts my photo on the ofrenda
    • [pulls off her shoe and begins beating the computer]

    • [Approaches with fear]

    • [Miguel runs away]
    • [Miguel is being chased by Mama Imelda]
    • Mam? Imelda: But when we had Coco, and things changed. I wanted to put down roots. He wanted to play for the world. We each made a sacrifice, Miguel. Now, I want you to decide which side to choose.
    • [resentfully]
    • Miguel: To choose? A family doesn't force me to choose. You are my family, and families are suppose to support me, no matter what decision I chose. But you will NEVER understand...
    • [Miguel runs away, leaving Mama Imelda looking shocked and hurt]
    • Mam? Imelda: Miguel! I am trying to save your life!
    • Miguel: No, you're not! You are ruining my life!
    • Mam? Imelda: I am your family!
    • Miguel: But you will never understand what I want! You'll never will!
    • [Miguel turns to leave, but then he stops when he hears Mama Imelda singing a verse of "La Lorona"]
