And they're so rich, they're so goddamn rich, you think they must know about everything. And they're slipping their room keys in my hands, two and three times day, different women. So here I think I'm scoring big and for a while you think, hey, they wouldn't be doing this if they didn't care about me, right?
Frances "Baby" Houseman: That's alright, I understand. You were just using them, that's all. [looks depressed]
Johnny Castle: No, no, that's not it. That's the thing, see, Baby, it wasn't like that, they were using me.

Frances "Baby" Houseman: You make me sick. Stay away from me, stay away from sister or I'll have you fired. [pours the jug of water on Robbie's crotch]
