Bit 16 - Agreement for Substitute Dancer

Date of Scene

Saturday, August 24, 1963


Scene Description


Baby Houseman
(Giving money to Penny)
Here's the money.

Penny Johnson
You mean, Robbie ...

Baby Houseman
No. You were right about him?

Penny Johnson
Then where'd you get it?

Baby Houseman
You said you needed it.

Penny Johnson
Is this kid for real?

Johnny Castle
Yeah it takes a real saint to ask Daddy.

Penny Johnson
Thanks, Baby, but I can't use it.

Johnny Castle
What? What's the matter with you? You should take the money.

Billy Kostecki
(Addressing Baby)
I can only get her an appointment for Thursday.

They do their act at the Sheldrake on Thursday night. If they cancel, they lose this season's salary and next year's gig.

Baby Houseman
What's the Sheldrake?

Billy Kostecki
It's another hotel where they do their mambo act.

Baby Houseman
Can't someone else fill in?

Johnny Castle
No, Miss Fix-It. Somebody else can't fill in. Maria has to work all day. She can't learn the routines. And Janet has to fill in for Penny. Everybody works here.

What, do you wanna do it? Take time out from Simon Says?

Billy Kostecki
It's not a bad idea.

Johnny Castle
It was a joke, Billy.

Penny Johnson
She can move.

Johnny Castle
No, it's the dumbest idea I ever heard of.

Baby Houseman
I can't even do the merengue.

Johnny Castle

Penny Johnson
Johnny, you're a strong partner. You can lead anybody.

Johnny Castle
But you heard her. She can't even do the merengue. She can’t do it. She cannot do it.

Song Lyrics

The song "Stay" by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs.
Stay, just a little bit longer.
Please, please, please, please, please,
Tell me you're going to.

Now, your daddy don't mind,
And your mommy don't mind,
If we have another dance,
Just one more,
One more time.

Oh, won't you stay
Just a little bit longer?
Please let me hear
You say that you will.

Won't you press your sweet lips
To mine?
Won't you say you love me
All of the time?

Come on, come on,
Come on and stay!
