Scene Description


Baby Houseman
Can I come in?

Johnny Castle
I got a -- I guess it's not a great room. You probably got a great room.

Baby Houseman
No. It's a great room! No, leave it on. I'm sorry about the way my father treated you.

Johnny Castle
No. Your father was great. He was great. The way he took care of Penny.

Baby Houseman
Yes, but I mean the way he was with you. It's really me it has to do with. Johnny, I came here because my father ....

Johnny Castle
No. The way he saved her -- I could never do anything like that. That was something. The reason people treat me like I'm nothing is because I’m nothing.

Baby Houseman
That's not true! You, you're everything!

Johnny Castle
You don't understand the way it is for somebody like me. Last month I'm eating Jujubes to keep alive. This month, women are stuffing diamonds in my pockets. I'm balancing on shit and, quick as that, I can be down there again.

Baby Houseman
No, it's not the way it is! It doesn't have to be that way!

Johnny Castle
I've never known anybody like you. You look at the world, and you think you can make the world better. Somebody's lost, you find them. Somebody's bleeding ....

Baby Houseman
I go get my daddy. That's really brave, like you said.

Johnny Castle
That took a lot of guts to go to him! You are not scared of anything.

Baby Houseman
Me? I'm scared of everything! I'm scared of what I saw. I'm scared of what I did, of who I am. But most of all, I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling for the rest of my life... the way I feel when I'm with you! Dance with me.

Johnny Castle
What, here?

Baby Houseman

Song Lyrics

These Arms of Mine

These arms of mine,
They are lonely,
Lonely and feeling blue.

These arms of mine,
They are yearning,
Yearning from wanting you.

And if you would let them hold you,
Oh, how grateful I will be.

These arms of mine,
They are burning,
Burning from wanting you.

These arms of mine,
They are wanting,
Wanting to hold you.

Come on, come on, Baby,
Just be my little woman.
Just be my lover.


Cry to Me

When your baby leaves you all alone
And nobody calls you on the phone,
Don't you feel like crying?

Well, here I am, my honey.
Come on, Baby, cry to me.

When you're all alone in your lonely room
And there's nothing but the smell of her perfume
Don't you feel like crying?

Nothing could be sadder than a glass of wine alone.
Loneliness loneliness, it's just a waste of your time.

But you don't ever you don't ever have to walk alone.
Come take my hand, Baby, won't you walk with me?
