Dirty Dancing (1987) Poster


Jane Brucker: Lisa Houseman



  • Lisa Houseman : Oh, my God. Look at that! Ma, I should have brought those 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.

  • Lisa Houseman : Where is my beige iridescent lipstick?

  • Johnny : [talking about Neil]  That little wimp. He wouldn't know a new idea if it hit him in the Pachenga. He wanted some new ideas? I could've *told* him some new ideas!

    Baby : Well, why did you let him talk to you that way?

    Johnny : What do you mean, and fight the bossman?

    Baby : Yeah, tell him your ideas! He's a person like everyone else. I'm sure he'll think they're great.

    Johnny : Look, I know these people, Baby. They're all rich and they're mean. They won't listen to me.

    Baby : Well, then why not fight harder? *Make* them listen?

    Johnny : Because, I need this goddamn job lined up for next summer!

    [chuckles scornfully] 

    Johnny : My dad calls me today, he says - with good news - you know, he says, "Uncle Paul can finally get you in the union."

    Baby : Oh, what-what union?

    Johnny : The House Painters and Plasterers, local number 179, at your service.

    [Baby's father, sister, and Robbie come out of the house next to the trail; Baby pulls Johnny down so they won't see them together] 

    Lisa Houseman : I've been thinking a lot about the Domino Theory. Now, when Vietnam falls, is China next?

    [the trio passes] 

    Baby : I don't think they saw us.

    Johnny : [getting up]  Fight harder, huh? I don't see you fighting so hard, Baby. I don't see you running up to daddy telling him I'm your guy.

    Baby : I will. With my father, it's complicated. I *will* tell him, I...

    Johnny : I don't believe you, Baby! I don't think that you ever had any intention of telling him. Ever.

    [stalks off] 

  • Lisa Houseman : I've decided to go all the way with Robbie.

    Baby : Oh, Lisa, no. Not with someone like him.

    Lisa Houseman : Do you think if we came back here for a our tenth anniversary, it would be free?

    Baby : It-it's just wrong this way. It should be with someone - it should be with someone that you sort of love.

    Lisa Houseman : Oh, come on. You don't care about me. You wouldn't care if I humped the entire army... as long as they were on the right side of the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

  • Lisa Houseman : God, I am so sick of this rain. Remind me not to take my honeymoon at Niagara Falls.

    Marjorie Houseman : So, you go to Acapulco, it'll be fine.

  • Neil Kellerman : So is everyone gonna be in the show?

    Jake Houseman : No we're leaving tomorrow so we can miss the weekend traffic.

    Marjorie Houseman : But Jake we're payed up til Sunday.

    Lisa Houseman : Daddy I'm not gonna miss the show. I was suppose to sing in it.

    Jake Houseman : I said we're leaving tomorrow.

    Marjorie Houseman : Why would you wanna leave so early?

    Jake Houseman : It was just a thought. We can stay if you want. So Lisa what we're you planning on singing?

    Lisa Houseman : I'm not sure. What do you think I should sing Daddy?
