Dirty Dancing (1987)
Jake Houseman: I won't tell your mother about this. Right now, I'm going to bed. And take that stuff off your face before your mother sees you.

Jake Houseman: Max, our Baby's gonna change the world.
Max: [to Lisa] And what are you gonna do, missy?
Baby: Oh, Lisa's going to decorate it.
Robbie Gould: She already does.

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.

[last lines]
Jake Houseman: I know you weren't the one who got Penny in trouble.
Johnny: Yeah.
Jake Houseman: When I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong.
[to Baby]
Jake Houseman: You looked wonderful out there.

Jake Houseman: Don't you tell me what to see! I see someone in front of me who got his partner in trouble and sent her off to some butcher, while he moved on to an innocent young girl like my daughter!
[silence]
Johnny: [angry] Yeah, I guess that's what you *would* see.

Jake Houseman: [Jake gives Robbie a letter of recommendation for medical school] Good luck in medical school, son.
Robbie Gould: I wanted to thank you for your help with the Penny situation. I guess we've all gotten into messes.
Jake Houseman: What?
Robbie Gould: I thought Baby told you. Look, I'm not sure. Penny said so, but you know with girls like that. They're liable to pin it... on any guy around.
[Jake snatches the letter back from Robbie]

Marjorie Houseman: It's his first real vacation in six years, Max. Take it easy.
Max: Three weeks here, it'll feel like a year.

Max: I want you girls to know if it were not for this man, I'd be standing here dead.

Max: [to the Houseman Family] This Danish is pure protein.

Max: [During the song about Kellerman's, just before it's interrupted by Johnny Castle] You and me, Tito. We've seen it all, eh? Bubbah and Zeda serving the first pasteurized milk to the boarders. Through the war years, when we didn't have any meat. Through the Depression, when we didn't have anything. Lots of changes, though, Max. It's not the changes so much this time. It's that it all seems to be ending. You think kids want to come with their parents and take fox-trot lessons? Trips to Europe, that's what the kids want. Twenty-two countries in three days. It feels like it's all slipping away.
