"Oh, come on, ladies. God wouldn't have given you maracas if He didn't want you to shake 'em."
"Go back to your playpen, Baby."
"Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame."
"No, I mean the way he saved her. I mean, I... I could never do anything like that. That was somethin'. The reason people treat me like I'm nothin' is 'cause I'm nothin'."
"Nobody puts Baby in a corner."
"Now, you'll hurt me if you don't trust me, all right?"
"Just put your pickle on everybody's plate college boy and leave the hard stuff to me."
"I'm gonna do my kind of dancin' with a great partner, who's not only a terrific dancer; somebody who's taught me that there are people willing to stand up for other people no matter what it costs them; somebody who's taught me about the kind of person I wanna be."
"Yeah, it takes a real saint to ask Daddy."
"Don't put your heel down, don't put your heel down!"
"It's not on the one, it's not the mambo, it's a feeling a heartbeat."
"You don't understand the way it is, I mean for somebody like me. Last month I'm eating Jujubes to keep alive, and this month women are stuffing diamonds in my pocket, I'm bouncing on shit and quick as that I could be down there again."
"That was the summer of 1963, when everybody called me Baby, and it didn't occur to me to mind. That was before President Kennedy was shot, before the Beatles, when I couldn't wait to join the Peace Corps, and I thought I'd never find a guy as great as my dad. That was the summer we went to Kellerman's."
"Me? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you."
"I carried a watermelon."
"So they FIRED you, because of me!"
"Oh, yes, as a matter of fact it is. We're supposed to do the show in two days, you won't show me the lift, I'm not sure of the turns. I'm doing all this to save your ass when what I really want to do is drop you on it."
"I won't tell your mother about this, right now I'm going to bed. And take that stuff off your face before your mother sees you."
"I've been thinking about the Domino Effect. Now, if Vietnam falls, does that mean China's next?"
"You know if it wasn't for this man I would be standing here dead."
"I think she gets it from me."
My god it's Cleopatra. I feel like such an asp."
"I finally found a girl exactly like my mother. Acts like, dresses like her. So I brought her home. My father doesn't like her!"
