Jim Gordon: Have you seen my girlfriend? Tall, Thin, legs for days?
Eva: Yeah I pitched her overboard.
Maureen Cummings: Erik got injured today. And do you know the first thing I thought when I saw him go down?
Jim Gordon: What?
Maureen Cummings: "I wish that was me." So that made me think, you know, 'cause that's not a normal reaction. How much of what you liked about me was because I was a ballet dancer, and how much because I was me?
Erik Jones: I do ballet because it has nothing to do with the people. Give me tiaras and boys in tights any day.
Maureen Cummings: I've got priorities. I mean, you only get to be a dancer for ten years. Maybe fifteen if you don't get injured. So for the next decade at least.
Jim Gordon: Hey, all I'm asking for is a date.
Cooper: If you're still holding onto all that personal shit.
Jonathan Reeves: I don't have to hold onto anything. I got the girl.
Jody: Cooper, you're an amazing dancer, and you're a great choreographer, but as a boyfriend you kind of suck.
Eva Rodriguez: Truth? In terms of technique, you are behind. But the people here know what they're looking for. And on the day of you audition, they saw it. In you.
Jody Sawyer: Now all they see is the wrong body type.
Erik Jones: That's Sergei, that's Jody, that's Eva, I'm Erik, and you're cute.
Maureen Cummings: Look, you're a smart girl, Jody. If you turn in your application now, you can still get into a good college.
Jody Sawyer: But I don't want to go to college. I want to dance.
Maureen Cummings: Yeah? Well so do a lot of people.
Jody: That class, I mean, how come I can't dance like that in my ABA class?
Cooper: Because ABA has a great big stick up its ass?
Eva Rodriguez: A girl's got a right to know what kind of hound she's saving herself for.
Jody Sawyer: Margot Fonteyn didn't have great feet.
Jonathan Reeves: Well when Margot Fonteyn was on stage, you couldn't tear your eyes away from her. Pft. It can't be taught.
Erik Jones: Where are you going?
Eva: We're going out for a smoke.
Erik Jones: Oh come downstairs. It's Marlboro country.
Jody Sawyer: Mom. Oh, I'm so happy you guys are here.
Mr. Sawyer: We wanted to see what you've been up to this past year. And I've gotta tell you, that was the most fantastic thing I've ever seen.
Mrs. Sawyer: It was great, honey. And just just wonderful.
Jody Sawyer: You wanna know something stupid? I'd actually started to believe I didn't need to hear that anymore.
Charlie: Are you asking me out?
Jody: Well yeah. Are you saying yes?
Charlie: I guess so. Yeah.
Jody Sawyer: Mom I got in. I made it.
Mrs. Sawyer: Wonderful honey.
Jody Sawyer: Can you believe it? I'm going to New York.
Eva: So, you know the story with this Maureen chick?
Sergei: You're living with Maureen? Oh, good luck.
Eva: Big time bitch?
Sergei: Biggest time.
Instructor: Just dance the shit out of there.
Erik Jones: My stage name is Erik O. Jones after Oprah. She is my idol.
Eva Rodriguez: Eva Rodriquez, after no-one.
Erik Jones: Oh, an individual. I like it.
