Shall We Dance (2004) Poster

Richard Gere: John Clark



  • John Clark : The one thing I am proudest of in my whole life, is that you're happy with me. If I couldn't, if I couldn't tell you that I was unhappy sometimes, is because I didn't want to risk hurting the one person I treasure most. I'm so sorry.

  • Paulina : What made you wanna dance?

    John Clark : You. Looking out that window, right there. You could see it from the train. Every night, I'd come home from work & I'd look for you, your face... you looked on the outside the way I was feeling on the inside.

    Paulina : I was watching you, too. From the window, I saw you practicing on the platform.

    John Clark : No? Uhh.

    Paulina : That night I said all those thing to you, I didn't think I'd ever see you again. But you kept coming back.

    John Clark : I didn't want to. I figured if I hadn't, you would have been right about everything you accused me of. Then, I started dancing and found I really liked it. It made me happy!

    Paulina : Yes, it shows.

  • Bobbie : So why did you all start dancing?

    Vern : I'm getting married in September. My bride said she'd like to see me lose a few pounds, thought the dancing might be good exercise. I told her it wouldn't work.

    John Clark : I think you're gonna win that bet.

    Chic : I'm here for the ladies, you know what they say about guys that can dance...

    Bobbie : Yeah, that they're great in bed.

    Chic : Right.

    Bobbie : Where do you hear this crap?

    Chic : Everywhere, everywhere the guys that can dance get the pick of the litter.

    Bobbie : I'm here for the big dance competition. All I need is a partner.

    [to John] 

    Bobbie : so that leaves you.

    John Clark : What?

    Bobbie : You're the only one that hasn't said why you're dancing.

    John Clark : I'm dancing for exercise like Vern.

    Bobbie : Bull.

    John Clark : Because I'm lousy in bed like Chic. There I said it.

  • Bobbie : ...and stop looking at my ass.

    John Clark : I'll try.

  • Paulina : You... are the frame.

    John Clark : I'm the frame.

    Paulina : She is the picture...

    John Clark : She is the picture...

    Paulina : your frame. - Everything that you do is to show her off.

    Bobbie : You got that?.

    John Clark : I didn't hear that.
