Frances "Baby" Houseman: Johnny, I came here because my father--
Johnny Castle: No, I mean the way he saved her. I mean, I... I could never do anything like that. That was somethin'. The reason people treat me like I'm nothin' is cause I'm nothin'.
Frances "Baby" Houseman: That's not true! You, you're everything!
Johnny Castle: You don't understand the way it is, I mean for somebody like me. Last month, I'm eating Jujubes to keep alive, and this month, women are stuffing diamonds in my pocket, I'm balacing on shit as quick as that, [clicks his fingers] I could be down there again.
Frances "Baby" Houseman: No, it's not the way it is! It doesn't have to be that way.
Johnny Castle: I've never known anyone like you before. You think you can make the world better. Somebody's lost, you find them. Somebody's bleeding--
Frances "Baby" Houseman: Yeah, I go get my daddy. That was really brave, like you said.
Johnny Castle: That took a lot of guts to go to him! You are not scared of anything.
France "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. And most of all, I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life... the way I feel when I'm with you!
