How do I love Dirty Dancing? Let me count the ways.

-Amazing music
-When Doc Houseman is wrong, he says he's wrong
-How ridiculous Lisa is throughout
-Newman as the Kellerman's announcer
-When Johnny breaks the window in his car and Baby says YOU'RE WIIIILLLLD

-When Baby gets told to go back to her playpen
-The two old ladies throwing off their fur stoles and dancing together at the end
-When Johnny tells Robbie the creep he's not worth a punch

-The dance scene in Johnny's room
-It made references to melons something that didn't involve boobs
-When Baby mocks how Johnny was as a teacher in the Sylvia/Mickey scene
-How I can feel my hatred for Dr. Houseman burn in me with the fire of a thousand suns when Baby is making her impassioned speech and he is staring stubbornly at the lake like a curmudgeonly hypocritical douche
-Johnny's hands in pockets pose and when he does this

-At Kellerman's the friendships last long as the mountain stands
-How Robbie refers to it as The Penny Situation
-Max's lisp

-How cute those thieving Schumachers are
-How you can't tell Jennifer Grey hated The Swayze before filming
-How Baby's mom finally gets some ass about her and tells her husband to sit down when Johnny is making his I always do the last dance speech

-The lift
-I love it as much today as the first time I saw it many moons ago

I've obviously spent a lot of time watching this movie. It's my favorite! Much to MFD's chagrin, I watch it every time it's on TV even though I own it.

What's your favorite Dirty Dancing moment? When it's not on doesn't count.

Check out the giveaway pinned to the top of my facebook page - a random winner who (of course likes the page but also) comments and lets me know what they want to see more of on the blog will win a Naked Basics Palette. Because we can't all be fancy dancer eye shadow users, am I right? Winner will be chosen tomorrow morning at 10, so gets to steppin'.

  1. you forgot when johnny kicked douchebag robbie's ass, when that old whore saw baby leaving johnny's cabin, when baby stumbles upon the staff house and everyone is getting down and dirty.

    i had no idea that jennifer grey and patrick swayze didn't get along on set so naturally i had to google it and read all the things.

  4. I guess this should be my real confession: I have never seen Dirty Dancing. It had always been on my to do list, but never have crossed it off. So with this little post you have going on, I have decided it's time! I'm gonna go find it somewhere and watch it.

    Also, I'm new around here and I just want to say I love you comment "Tell me what you thing, leave a comment!..." thing, it totally calls to my inner That 70's Show addiction! (:

  5. This movie may have been the first adult movie I ever watched!

    I love it when Johnny says nobody puts Baby in a corner, I love the way Mrs. Houseman tries to dirty dance at the end, and when Baby is trying on wigs and Johnny comes to talk to Penny.

  6. Favorite. Did you know the Mountain Lake Lodge (where DD was filmed) still does DD weekends a couple times a year? It's low-key and probably lame but I totally want to go... http://www.mtnlakelodge.com/mountain-activities/event-calendar/Dirty-Dancing-Weekend/(offset)/1?event_keyword=&check_in=01%2F08%2F2014&check_out=01%2F31%2F2015&search-by=Dates+and+Keywords&sort_by=date&from_calender=1&totalcount=3&offsets=2

  7. All.Of.It.

    "Me? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, of what I did, of who I am. But most of all, I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling again in my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you."

    Damn.

  8. Oh, I forgot, when Baby tells off Johnny while they're rehearsing. "We're supposed to do this show in two days. I'm not sure of turns, you won't show me lifts. I'm doing all of this to SAVE YOUR ASS. What I really want to do is drop you on it!"

  9. I confess I've seen this movie only once. CRAZY!

  10. I so love this movie! I love the Penny and Johnny dancing scene and then when he first tried to dance with Baby. Seriously no rhythm at all!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I didn't know she hated him! I love trivia like that! Did you watch the show Jennifer Gray was on in the 90s where she played a version of herself and mocked her nose job? I have no idea what it was called but I remember that.

    Also, love that Baby's mom is Emily Gilmore and the characters are the same person, pretty much.

  12. I LOVE Dirty Dancing!!! My favorite part of the movie is the last dance at the end. I love how he comes in and says Nobody puts baby in the corner. Then the dance is just amazing. I was always jealous of her beautiful pink dress. I loved the way she flirted with it up on state before she jumped down for the lift. I also loved all of Penny's shoes.

  13. "Go back to your playpen, Baby." (and the fact that she married 80's big-haired star Richard Marx, and is still married to him, makes it all the better!)

  14. The WHOLE damn thing!! Every time I hear a song from that movie I literally long to watch it.

  15. LOVE this movie. Thanks for the giveaway! I've been wanting that palette for awhile!

  16. Oh God I love this movie! Steph wrote about Empire Records yesterday, and I said it was one of the top 5 best movie soundtracks. Dirty Dancing is another top 5. I wore out the tape! Both tapes actually, because there were 2!

    Dance with me?
    What, here?
    Here.

    BEST SCENE EVER

  17. "How cute those thieving Schumachers are." Yes!

    I'm so glad that Dr. H gets his shit together in the end because otherwise I may have held a grudge against Lennie Briscoe and that would have been sad.

    I love watching Penny dance. She's gorgeous and damn, those legs!

    I have a draft post about how people used to tell me I looked like Jennifer Grey.

  18. Love this! What chick doesn't want to do that last dance and the whole lift!

  19. I still watch that movie all the time. It is seriously on the top 5 list. I was so sad when Johnny, I mean Patrick Swayze, died. Cable was playing "Ghost" a lot over the holidays, and I started crying bc he died. SOmething about the holidays makes me so emotional...haha

  21. When her sister, Lisa is rehearsing her stupid hula dance. It makes me cringe and laugh at the same time.

  22. I just love how awesomely hot Patrick Swayze is throughout the movie. Every time I watch the movie, I fall in love with him all over again.

    1. Swayze is freaking awesome in this, isn't he Gladys?

  23. Wait Jennifer Grey hated Patrick Swayze? I'm intrigued.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I liked the whole sequence where Johnny was teaching her to dance, and they are outside on the bridge and stuff. I love dancing, and that was a part that I always think of when I think about the movie. Did you see the video of the couple who did THE Dance for their first wedding dance? They nailed it! It was awesome!

  25. I didn't know The Schnozz hated The Swayze!

  26. I love the first time you see Johnny and Penny really dance. So good! And also when Crazy Lisa gives Baby makeup tips.

  27. Is it wrong that whenever my child is running around sans shirt in just her black leggings it makes me think of Johnny in Dirty Dancing in his tight black pants with his shirt off? Because it does. And when I tell my husband our daughter looks like Patrick Swayze in those moments he clearly thinks I'm crazy.

  28. Oh this makes me really want to watch this movie! I also did not know that Baby and Johnny hated each other. I will have to do some Googling.

    I remember watching it as a kid and thinking the scene in the cabin where they finally do it was so scandalous.

    ReplyDelete
  29. ahhh so much good stuff! I watched this movie so much as a kid (which I realize is highly inappropriate now that I'm an adult ha). I haven't seen it in awhile and now need to watch it again soon!

  30. I love this movie!! I need to watch it again. Thanks for linkin up! :)

  31. this is hilarious, I love it. My favorite moment is the lift, which Tara and I attempt when we're drunk. Never works out. Except this one time we got a super buff guy to lift her, but even then she flopped around like a fish. Movies are not real life.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You named all the moments! I hated Lisa growing up, but when I watch it as an adult she makes me so happy. Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  33. One of my all time favorite movies ever!!! I watch it over and over and over again, which for me with movies is very rare. I love the You're wild scene as well. Them practicing the jump in the water. Walking the long. I used to pretend I could learn how to dance by watching the movie.

  34. The music hands down wins best soundtrack EVER. We actually have a video of Johnny Cakes humping Pete's arm to "Hungry Eyes."

  36. when i was in high school we had a foreign exchange student living with us. she loved patrick swayze - we literally watched that movie every single day after school for ... well months and months. I watch it every time it's on - own it - haven't watched it in forever. i think i need to remedy that.

    1. I so rarely watch my DVD of it Kirsten, I watch it like once a week on TV. I'm going to break it out soon!

  37. I love everything about this movie :-) Love when Baby is learning the dancing and once she gets more confident, she's practicing solo (on the bridge). And I love the end when it all came together.

    @Kathy - yep, both Swayze and Grey hated one another. He was actually really annoyed during the part where he was stroking her arm and she kept laughing.

  38. I can't tell you how much I LOVE this post! My sister and I have watched Dirty Dancing about 10000000000000000000 times (give or take). :-)
