Shall We Dance (2004)
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.
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.
