Javier Suarez: You know that it's ballroom dancing. It's not what I do.
Javier Suarez, Katey Miller: It's *Latin* ballroom. If we mix what you do with what I do, I really think we'd have something.
Javier Suarez: I still have to teach you everything.
Katey Miller: Not *everything*. I'll have to teach you a few things, too.

Javier Suarez: Why are you so afraid to let me lead you?
Katey Miller: I'm not.

Katey Miller: [Javier walks out of his apartment to see Katey] Okay, I am.
Javier Suarez: You are what?
Katey Miller: Afraid.
[Javier smiles]

Javier Suarez: Afro-Cuban dance, it's the dance of slaves. When they danced, it was their only time to be free. So they could be a bird, or do a Flamenco Step and make fun of their owners. Or just be in the sea instead of being stuck on an island away from home. It's a dance about being exactly who you want to be in that moment.

Javier Suarez: We were having dinner, and there was a knock on the door. Suddenly two policemen were taking my father away. The traitor could've been anyone. Batista has his spies everywhere. That's the thing, you know? My father never hurt anybody. He was just a free thinker. Someone didn't like his thoughts. We had a funeral, but we never found his body. Carlos disappeared for a while, afraid that he would be next. And then this girl shows up with a baby, says it's his, and she cannot afford it, and... Suddenly I'm in charge of my whole family.
Katey Miller: It may not be what you want for yourself, but you *are* making a difference.
Javier Suarez: There's a revolution out there, and what am I doing? Just painting stolen cars and babysitting?
Katey Miller: No, you're keeping your family alive. That's the most important thing you could do.

Javier Suarez: [Watching a film of Katey's parents dancing] Your parents, they're perfect! Do you see how much they want to be in each others' arms? For us to dance together, I mean really dance... That's how it has to be.
[Katey steps forward, gives him a look and they start to dance. Eventually the dance turned sensual]

Katey Miller: [Lying together the morning after they slept together. Javier is silent] What?
Javier Suarez: Nothing.
Katey Miller: Tell me.
Javier Suarez: Carlos. He, he always said that when the revolution came, Castro would kick out all the Yankee companies.
Katey Miller: But you don't really know that.
Javier Suarez: No. I'm just saying that...
Katey Miller: What? That I might have to leave?
Javier Suarez: It could happen.
Katey Miller: But they wouldn't do that. Not if the whole idea is to give people their freedom.
Javier Suarez: *Cuban* people.
Katey Miller: Well, then you'll come with us. I'm sure my Dad can work it out.
Javier Suarez: And my family?
Katey Miller: We'll send for them, just like we were always gonna do.
Javier Suarez: Katey, I wanted to leave because of Batista. But now...
Katey Miller: But you don't know what life would be like here. I mean, what if it doesn't get better?
Javier Suarez: My father died for this. I have to believe it will. I can make a difference here. You showed me that. This is my country. It's my home.

Katey Miller: Javier?
Javier Suarez: Yeah?
Katey Miller: If we don't win the finals...
Javier Suarez: We will.
Katey Miller: But *if* we don't... I'm not gonna go to college in six months.
Javier Suarez: You don't know how you're gonna feel in six months.
Katey Miller: Yes, I do.
Javier Suarez: No, you don't. I don't want you to give up your dreams for me.
Katey Miller: But I have new dreams now.
[They kiss]

Javier Suarez: [about Batista leaving] I can't believe it's real.
Katey Miller: Don't you wanna be out there celebrating?
Javier Suarez: No, I wanna be right here with you.

Javier Suarez: I can fit another couple between us.
Katey Miller: It's not gonna be a crowded club. You've gotta sweep across the dance floor.
Javier Suarez: Okay. Okay, I can sweep.
[Mockingly starts leading Katey in huge circles]
Katey Miller: What are you doing? Your steps are too big!
Javier Suarez: Nah, nah. I'm sweeping!

Javier Suarez: [Katey takes off her wrap and goes to walk away. He pulls her back] Que bonita!
Katey Miller: Gracias.

Katey Miller: Don't forget to look at the judges.
Javier Suarez: Don't worry about the others, hmm? Remember, you are the Queen of La Rosa Negra.
