Date of Scene

Monday, August 26, 1963


Scene Description


Johnny Castle
Now, the most important thing to remember in lifts is balance. Whoa! Whoa!

Baby Houseman
I got it now. So where'd you learn to be a dancer?

Johnny Castle
Well, this guy came into this luncheonette one day, and we were all sitting around doing nothing. And he said that Arthur Murray was giving a test for instructors. So, if you passed, they teach you all the different kinds of dances, show you how to break them down, teach them.

Baby Houseman

Johnny Castle
No. Good. Don't look down. Look here. Good. And... Now, bend your knees and go up. Go, go. Good try. Now, you'll hurt me if you don't trust me, all right? Now, go, go. Go. Good. Now, I'm gonna go up. You know, the best place to practice lifts is in the water. Just bend your knees. And... go. Good. Good. Good. Now hold the position. Hold it. Good. Don't break! Don't break! Let's do it again. All right. One, two, three.

Baby Houseman
Oh, sorry.

Johnny Castle
Good. Keep ... No, don't. It's not too bad. One more time. Okay. Over my head. Go.
