Nobody puts Baby in a corner.

Johnny

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

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.

Jake Houseman

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.

Baby

Oh, come on, ladies. God wouldn't have given you maracas if He didn't want you to shake 'em.

Penny

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.

[first lines]
Radio disc jockey: [on radio] Hi, everybody, this is your Cousin Brucie. Whoa! Our summer romances are in full bloom, and everybody, but everybody's in love. But cousins, here's a great song from The Four Seasons.
Baby: [voiceover] 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 came, 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.

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

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.
