Romantic sparks occur between two dance students from different backgrounds at the Maryland School of the Arts.

Andie: The streets are supposed to be about different people coming together... We call this 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!
Moose: [after tasting tofu dog, sings:] Tastes like candy canes - at Christmas.
Andie: 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.
Chase Collins: Andie!... Come 'ere
Andie: You should really wait your turn... ooooh
Chase Collins: Couldn't
Andie: I didn't know you could Salsa?
Chase Collins: There's a lot you don't know about me, Andie
Andie: Which is surprising, considering how much you talk about yourself
Chase Collins: ooooh
Moose: Well, there's a reason they're there and not here.
Moose: You should take a look for yourself. I think you'd be surprised.
Blake Collins: And you are?
Moose: I'm Robert Alexander the third, but you can call me Moose. I dance with their crew.
Blake Collins: You dance?
Moose: Damn right, I dance!
Moose: I can take you to where they are.
Blake Collins: Okay, Goose, let's go.
Moose: Heh, heh. No, no - it's Moose.
Blake Collins: Whatever.
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.
Andie: 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?
Chase Collins: Aren't you late for something, Andie?
[Andie gets angry and turns around and leaves]
Chase Collins: [smiles] Bye Andie West!
[Andie turns around to see him]
Chase Collins: You're an amazing little dancer, you know that right?
Andie: Little?
DJ Sand: That's not how we do it. This ain't High School Musical!
Moose: ...and then I was like, "Damn, your breath stinks, girl!"
[Andie laughs]
Andie: Why would you ever say that to her?
Moose: Cause I thought it would be cool.
Andie: Well, it wasn't!
Moose: Yeah, we're her crew! We're getting ready to battle at the streets.
Felicia: What street? Sesame Street?
Jenny Kido: [to Andie] We don't want you!
Andie: What's your deal? Boy bands making a comeback?
Chase Collins: Yeah, they actually offer a course on it here
Chase Collins: I'm getting straight A's.
Andie: [sarcasm] That wouldn't surprise me.
[Andie is trying to get the dissenting mob's attention at the Dragon dance club]
Voice From Crowd: You are not the valedictorian!
[from trailer]
Chase Collins: She has more talent, more conviction than anyone else I know!
Andie: Ow! Pointing hurts!
Blake Collins: Yeah, it's supposed to.
Chase Collins: So that's it, huh?
Andie: [sighs] I guess so...
Chase Collins: They just hatin' on you cause you dope.
[having just been faced at the Dragon dance club]
Voice From Crowd: You guys are garbage!
Jenny Kido: Oooo, he got da key!
Chase Collins: [to an distressed Andie] Good Morning Sunshine!
Tuck: Yo, why my crib smell like Funyuns, broccoli and ball sweat?
