Before I share my review I wanted to include 10 memorable quotes from Dirty Dancing:
In honor of the 30th anniversary of Dirty Dancing, here are 10 great quotes from the classic.
“Oh, come on, ladies. God wouldn’t have given you maracas if He didn’t want you to shake ’em.” -Penny
“You just put your pickle on everybody’s plate, college boy, and leave the hard stuff to me.” -Johnny
“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.” -Johnny
“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” -Johnny
“We’re supposed to do the show in two days, you won’t show me the lifts, I’m not sure of the turns, I’m doing all this to save your ass, what I really want to do is drop you on it!” -Baby
“No, the-the way he saved her. I-I mean, I-I could never do anything like that. That was somethin’. I mean, the reason people treat me like I’m nothin’ is because I’m nothin’.” -Johnny
“Now, you’ll hurt me if you don’t trust me, all right?” -Johnny
“Sorry for the interruption, folks, but I always do the last dance of the season. This year somebody told me not to. So I’m gonna do my kind of dancin’ with a great partner, who’s not only a terrific dancer, but 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. Miss Frances Houseman.” -Johnny
and my most favorite:
“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
Disclosure: I received a copy of the above movie in order to facilitate my review, all opinions are my own.
This movie is just as great as I remember. I think in the last 30 years I may have watched it once or possibly not, I honestly can’t remember. BUT what I do remember is the feelings it made me felt the first time around.
I love the story of Baby coming to family camp for the summer and starting out seemingly innocent but the young Patrick Swayze catching her eye. Whew, he caught my eye. I forgot how handsome he was when I was 18.
Jennifer Grey’s performance was one that made it believable that you could go to family camp as an older teen and leave feeling more grown up than when you came. For some reason, I felt emotional a lot during the movie. Possibly just because I forgot how wonderful the music was in the movie or looking back 30 years ago and remembering just wanting to have your own Johnny. Watching “Baby” learn to dance and the determination she had with her good natured personality makes this movie as one I will continue to enjoy for years to come.

Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. From empty nesters to living with our oldest and 2 grandchildren while our house is rebuilt after a house fire in 10/2018 my life is something new each day.
