Not only did I watch the movie almost weekly, I would rewind the last dance scene at least once to watch it again.
I convinced my class to use the theme "I've Had the Time of My Life" for our senior prom.
My friends and I learned entire dances from the movie, and one even had her date at a dance do the lift from the movie. (Note: That lift causes underwear exposure.)
So, Patrick Swayze is close to my heart. And, how can you not love him for his performances in Ghost, Saturday Night Life and To Wong Foo? He played a drag queen in a movie! And he can dance! (And, since he just died, I'll even admit that I enjoy Road House.)
So, in his memory, I present to you one of the greatest movie clips of all time. It won't embed, so you'll have to watch the Dirty Dancing clip on YouTube.
Thanks Patrick! We'll miss you!
