You wanna hear something crazy? Last night I… I dreamed we were walking along and we met your father. He said, “Come on”, and he put his arm around me. Just like he did with Robbie.[to Baby]
You don’t understand the way it is, I mean for somebody like me. Last month, I’m eating Jujubes to keep alive, this month women are stuffing diamonds in my pockets.[to Baby]
Sorry about the disruption, folks, but I always do the last dance of the season. This year somebody told me not to. So I’m gonna do my kind of dancin’ with a great partner, who’s not only a terrific dancer. Somebody who’s taught me that there are people willing to stand up for other people no matter what it costs them. Somebody who’s taught me about the kind of person I wanna be. Miss Frances Houseman.
Look, you’ve gotta understand what it’s like, Baby. You come from the streets and suddenly you’re up here, and these women are throwing themselves at you, and they smell so good, and they really take care of themselves, I mean I never knew women could be like that, you know? And they’re so rich, they’re so god**** rich, you think they must know about everything. And they’re slipping their room keys in my hands, two and three times day, different women. So here I think I’m scoring big, right? And for a while you think, hey, they wouldn’t be doing this if they didn’t care about me, right?[to Baby]
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.[to Baby]
