Billy Kostecki: [Watching Penny and Johnny dance] You'd think they were a couple
Baby: Well aren't they?
Billy Kostecki: Naw, not since we were kids.

I've been thinking about the Domino Effect. Now, if Vietnam falls, does that mean China's next?

Lisa Houseman

Johnny: What's your real name, Baby?
Baby: Frances. For the first woman in the cabinet.
[laughs]
Johnny: Frances. That's a real grown up name.

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.

Johnny

You make me sick. Stay away from me, stay away from sister or I'll have you fired.

Baby

Its not on the one, its not the mambo, it's a feeling, a heartbeat.

Johnny

Penny: Johnny, what are you doing?
Johnny: Don't worry about Max; I'll tell him your grandma died.
Penny: How many times have you told me never to get mixed up with them?
Johnny: [long silence] I know what I'm doing, Penny.
Penny: You listen to me; you've got to stop it, now.

Neil Kellerman: I have to say it. I'm known as the catch of the county.
Baby: I'm sure you are.
Neil Kellerman: Just last week, I stole a girl from Jamie, the lifeguard, and he asked her, right in front of me, "What does he have that I don't?" And she said, "Two hotels."

Lisa Houseman: God, I'm so sick of this rain. Remind me never to take my honeymoon at Niagara Falls.
Marjorie Houseman: So, you go to Acapulco.

Lisa Houseman: Oh, my God. Look at that! Ma, I should have brought my coral shoes. You said I was taking too much!
Marjorie Houseman: Well, sweetheart, you brought ten pairs.
Lisa Houseman: But the coral shoes match that dress!
Jake Houseman: This is not a tragedy. A tragedy is three men trapped in a mine, or police dogs used in Birmingham.
Baby: Monks burning themselves in protest.
Lisa Houseman: Butt out, Baby.

[last lines]
Jake Houseman: I know you weren't the one who got Penny in trouble.
Johnny: Yeah.
Jake Houseman: When I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong.
Jake Houseman: [to Baby] You looked wonderful out there.

Lisa Houseman: I've decided to go all the way with Robbie.
Baby: No, Lisa, not with someone like him.
Lisa Houseman: Do you think if we came back for a ten-year anniversary, it would be free?
Baby: It's just wrong this way. It should be with someone... someone that you sort of love.
Lisa Houseman: Come on. You don't care about me. You wouldn't care if I humped the entire army... as long as we were on the right side Ho chi Minh Trail.
