From Abuelita To Ruby, These Quotes From ‘On My Block’ Are The Realest Quotes On TV Right Now

Netflix

The fandom has reached a consensus: Season 2 of Netflix’s On My Block was somehow even better than the first. Yes, it’s a corny take on the real life struggles that the Latino and Black community face in east Los Angeles, but Latinos need corny TV shows, too. This season shows traumatized young men actually express their vulnerability and hold each other up. It shows a young black woman literally walk out of a room that’s trying to impress upon her “how a girl should look and act like.” It shows the Latino community taking turns to house a homeless teenager trying to escape gang violence, and how even ICE makes safety more difficult to come by.

On My Block gives us all these very real issues and more–alongside imaginary gnomes, an abuelita smoking a blunt with her nieto and too many real laughs. Here’s the best of Season 2:

When Ruby was going to give Olivia a Spanish-English dictionary:

The whole first episode, we were crying over Ruby’s unopened gift to Olivia for her quince only to find out it was a dictionary.

Ruby: “What’s wrong with trying to improve someone’s skillset?”

When abuelita’s solution to Ruby’s grief was marijuana (pronounced “meri-juan-ah”):

Abuelita was trying to make all these jokes about how “at least Ruby has his own room, now” and it wasn’t landing. This solution super landed.

And then Ruby started theorizing about Latina’s immortal skin:

CREDIT: Netflix

Ruby: Do you ever miss your little adobe hut?
Abuelita: Que?
Ruby: “You know, your little adobe hut back in Mexico. You think all that mud has something to do with why your skin still looks so soft?”

Abuelita had the most abuelita moment to date:

Raise your hand if your mami, tía or abuela has not told you about that time they were almost abducted by a UFO.

When Jamal and Cesar were trying to convince Abuelita to launder their money for the adrenaline rush:

I want to meet the writer that’s responsible for this content. Mil gracias.

Say his name out loud:

It never gets old. 😂 This is the payback Jamal gets for stealing an overly personified gnome.

When Jasmin’s response to Ruby asking her to the school dance competition was this:

CREDIT: Netflix

This season, not only was Jasmin’s comic relief next level, but we also got to know her better. She became a nuanced character and we can’t wait for more of this.

When Jasmin is making jokes about her father being nonfunctional:

CREDIT: Netflix

Ruby went over to her house to apologize for being a pendejo and Jasmin was busy putting sunblock on her completely non-functioning father. He went to Afghanistan and never really came back. When she asked Ruby to put sunblock on him, she even made this joke. ⬆️ How are you so amazing, Jasmin?

“Why do I have to pledge allegiance to something that comes out of a fake country in Italy?”

CREDIT: Netflix

Oh sh*****t. Writers of On My Block gave us this moment when Ruby told his mother he wasn’t going to church so he could help out Jamal. Relatable moment.

Mom’s response: “If you can’t hang with Jesus, you can’t hang with Jamal.”

When Mario knocked up tone-deaf white girl Amber:

CREDIT: Netflix

“I’m so sorry for your recent loss. As a beneficiary of white privilege, these kinds of tragedies are, like, foreign to me. So on behalf of my people, I am sorry for keeping your people down…I’m about to be the mother of a whitina.”

When Ruby accidentally revealed this three-prong life plan to his friends:

  • Cesar’s sloppy seconds
  • Get SWOLE
  • Court older women (Juniors and above)

Then, there are all these gender aware moments, courtesy of sweet Ruby:

CREDIT: Netflix

We don’t deserve this show. Or we really do deserve this show? Either way, there will be an uprising if Netflix cancels it.

Like when Ruby corrected Jamal on his misuse of female pronouns:

CREDIT: Netflix

I’m learning so much. Preach, Ruby–way to combat machísmo the best way we know how.

When Ruby wasn’t having it with his mom’s idea for a gender-reveal cake.

CREDIT: Netflix

At first, Mario came in to protest because he wanted the gender of the baby to be a surprise. Thankfully, Ruby had some thoughts on the “bigger issue.”

“We need to wait for the baby to tell us how he, she, or they identify.”

CREDIT: Netflix

👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Standing ovation for the writers of this show. We’re beside ourselves.

“Pero beige? Beige is not our friend. Beige brings out the yellow in our skin.”

CREDIT: Netflix

Mario and Ruby’s mom is, at this point, livid: “I no longer identify as the party planner.”

When Jasmin came in to ask the gang if they wanted any ‘refreshments’ only to smack her nalga and slam the door on the way out:

CREDIT: Netflix

Jasmin ended up teaming up with Ruby to put on a bomb baby shower. They even paid extras to be there because Amber “has no friends or family.”

When Jasmin had questions about Amber’s pregnancy:

CREDIT: Netflix

“You’re a gringa so it’s like soy, almond, or some good sh*t like that.” I’m screaming.

When Jasmin delivered Amber’s baby:

CREDIT: Netflix

And then when Amber asked her if she was pooping and Jasmine replied in English, “No, honey, you’re good.”

In Spanish: “Tengo mucho caca! Someone get me a bedpan!”

And basically all of Jamal’s super intense paranoia:

Someone, meme this por favor. We’re all still triggered from the cancellation of One Day at a Time, so please share this article, tweet about what this show means to you, and have your own watch parties. Let’s keep this Latino representation alive!

These Selena Quintanilla Quotes Are Perfect For Your #MotivationMonday

There’s nobody else in history like Selena, and that’s because she made history. She broke past gender norms and essentially took her rightful throne as Queen of Tejano music, an otherwise male-dominated genre. The only records she was ever competing against were her own. Her last live televised concert broke all records (which was her own record the year before) with a sold-out Houston Astrodome 24 years ago this February.

While her life was violently ended much too soon, she had accomplished lifetimes of achievement by the time of her death at just 23 years old. Why? Her positive mental thinking and gratitude. Keep Selena’s spirit alive and rise up, mija. These quotes are going to get you going.

“I feel very proud to be Mexican.”

She told Los Gruperos, “I feel very proud to be Mexican. I didn’t have the opportunity to learn Spanish when I was a girl, but … it’s never too late to get in touch with your roots.” Who knew?

“Tejano music was hard for us because I was a girl.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

Her most iconic quote of all time is probably via Orale Primo:

“Tejano music was hard for us because I was a girl. My dad had a lot of problems while trying to set up shows for us or presentations because there are a lot of men who don’t think that women can get the attention of the public. But … wrong!”

“We got laughed at…”

In a 1994 interview, Selena confessed that “we got laughed at. My father was told that we would never make it. It’s gradual, a growing process. It’s not like it came overnight.”

“When you get hard work you get success, and we put a lot of years into it.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

In an interview with KZTV, Selena emphasized the importance of perseverance. Even when people laugh at you.

“If you have a dream, don’t let anybody take it away.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

Selena only became so successful because she didn’t take people’s doubt seriously. She just went for it.

“All I need to do is try and do the best that I can do.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

Y ya. That’s all we can do, and the rest, we can let go.

“Anybody can be a role model, anybody can.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

In an interview given before her Grammy winning live performance in Corpus Christi 1993, Selena only had warm gratitude to share with her fans.

“I want to be remembered not only as an entertainer, but as a person who cared a lot.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

“…and I gave the best that I could and I tried to be the best role model that I possibly could.” 😭 😭 😭

“I’m very real, very sincere and honest, and that’s how I’ll always be.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

Be true to yourself, mija, no matter whether life throws fame, poverty or fortune your way. These are the sacred words of Selena.

“The reason I’m really appreciative of everything that’s going on around me is because of the fact that I never expected it, and I want to keep that attitude.

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

In an interview with MTV, Selena shared how she holds onto gratitude. Turns out it’s an attitude of gratitude.

“Music is not a very stable business. You know it comes and it goes, and so does money. But your education stays with you for the rest of your life.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

Stay in school, kids! Selena wouldn’t have gotten where she was without her education, and curiosity to get rooted in her culture.

“You shouldn’t care for somebody just because of the materialistic things that they have, and I’m a firm believer in that.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

Like La Reina says, money comes and goes. You want someone that you’ll want in every season of life.

“What I don’t like are arrogant people. We’re all equal. I don’t like it when a person assumes to be better.”

CREDIT: @saIeIsoIs / Twitter

We bet Selena got a lot of that in every world she found herself in. She was criticized by Latin media for not speaking Spanish fluently, and misunderstood by the Anglo world she lived in.

“Always believe that the impossible is always possible.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

Say that three times fast. Now say it in Spanish. K, now Selena is within you.

“We never thought we’d get this far, but we’re here.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

The band used to be stoked about getting a four hour gig that paid $100. They made it, fam.

“We went through a hard time, and we had to turn to music as a means to putting food on the table.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

“We went through a hard time, and we had to turn to music as a means to putting food on the table. And we’ve been doing it ever since. No regrets either.”

“You have to take what you could get when you’re getting started.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

If you expect to do something perfect the first time, then where do you go from there? Nobody starts out with everything, except for the Drumpfs.

“I don’t feel pressure because I’m not trying to portray something that I’m not.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

“… I’m just being myself. All these things that we’re doing and any jobs that we take, it’s because it’s what we believe in.”

“A lot of people may think it’s difficult to work with family, it’s not.”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

“If you have the same love, the same interests, and the same respect for each other, things work out great.” You get to work with you fam? Right on!

“You wish for things to happen when you’re not doing as well…”

CREDIT: @VivirasSelena / Twitter

“… and when it comes around, it’s like you wanna slow down. But you have to stop and think [about] where you came from, you appreciate it even more. It’s better to be working than not working at all.”

Hear that? So when you’re feeling bummed about being at work on a Monday, be grateful to be at work on a Monday instead.
