Continuity mistake: In the last dance scene, Patrick Swayze jumps down from the stage and starts dancing. He goes down on his knees and when he lifts one knee, it is extremely dusty, however when he stands up his knees are completely clean. (01:33:00)
Dirty Dancing (1987)
Directed by: Emile Ardolino
Starring: Patrick Swayze, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes, Jennifer Grey
Penny: Oh, come on, ladies. God wouldn't have given you maracas if He didn't want you to shake 'em.
Trivia: In the famous scene where Johnny and Baby crawl towards each other on the floor, Swayze and Grey were messing around while warming up to do the real scene, but the director liked it so much he kept it in the film.
Question: When Johnny takes Baby up to do the final dance, Baby's dad is obviously pretty angry about it and tries to stop him. However, after the dance all is forgiven? All just from the magic of their beautiful dancing?
Answer: While he probably was still angry with Johnny for sleeping with Baby, he can see how hard she must have worked to dance so well. Anger is often hard to release. Being a loving father, he is proud of Baby "in the moment" and was more disappointed with her than mad. He likely also grudgingly admires Johnny for having the courage to stand up for her.
