She has more talent, more conviction than anyone else I know!

Look, the streets is about where you're from. It's not some school talent show. There's no spring floors. There's no spotlights to use what you got and... what makes you think you got it, huh?

Andie

Oooo, he got da key!

Jenny Kido

Chase Collins: So that's it, huh?
Andie: [sighs] I guess so...

Chase Collins: You're an amazing little dancer, you know that right?
Andie: Little?

I remember the first time I saw someone move like they were from another planet, I couldn't keep my eyes away. I was little mom took me to a jam session in the neighborhood, it started off small but word spread and soon some of the best dancers around were showing up to compete in something they eventually called the streets. It became home, I got a front row seat to history. I wanted to glide and spin and fly like they did, but it didn't come easy. My mom would tell me don't give up, just be you, because life's too short to be anybody else. She was right. When I was 16 my mom got sick and in a couple months she was gone. Everything changed, including the streets.

Smiles: Yeah, they wanted me to fix my teeth.
Jenny Kido: I like you teeth!
Smiles: Thanks, I like your accent.
Jenny Kido: What accent?
Smiles: That accent you got... You have an accent.

Yo, why my crib smell like bunions, broccoli and ball sweat?

That's not how we do it. This ain't High School Musical!

The streets are supposed to be about different people coming together... We come as a battle but what are we fighting for? We're all here because we have this thing we do, we dance... Being part of the street used to mean much more than just turf or power... It's about bringing something new to the floor... and it shouldn't matter what we wear, what school or what neighborhood were from because the best part of the streets is not about what you got, it's what you make of what you've got! So if the 410's too scared to defend their title against us, hell, well be doing our thing outside where the streets started!

Andie

Moose: Yeah, we're her crew! We're getting ready to battle at the streets.
Felicia: What street? Sesame Street?
