Movie Quote Quiz

Penny: Oh, come on, ladies. God wouldn't have given you maracas if He didn't want you to shake 'em.

Johnny: You just put your pickle on everybody's plate, college boy, and leave the hard stuff to me.

Baby: 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.

Johnny: Nobody puts Baby in a corner.

Johnny: I'll never be sorry.
Baby: Neither will I.

Johnny: Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame.

Audio problem: In the scene where Penny and Johnny are teaching Baby their dance routine you see Penny putting on a record, if you look closely you can see that Penny moves the arm to put the record on then right away you see her taking the arm away even though the music has started. Even if it's a directorial device for us to hear different music than they do, it's still a mistake because she's not actually put the record on, meaning they've not got any music playing.
