Riff: Now, protocality calls for a war council
between us and the Sharks to set the whole thing
up.So I will personally give the bad news to
Bernardo.Against the Sharks we need every man we
got we need a lieutenant for the war council.
Action: That's me.
Riff: That's Tony.
Action: Who needs Tony?

Riff: He'll be at the dance at the gym.

Better go underground better run better hide.
We're drawin' the line so keep your noses hidden!
We're hangin' a sign says "visitors forbidden" and
we ain't kiddin'! Here come the Jets, Yeah! An'
