Fill in the Blank Friday

The movie I could watch over and over again is _______.


I should change that sentence to say, the movie I HAVE WATCHED over and over again is
Dirty Dancing! I can't even begin to tell you how many times I have seen it, but it's got to be closing in on (if not over by now) 100. My favorite line in the movie may be unexpected, but if you're a true fan, you'll know it:

"I carried a watermelon."

It's quite possibly the funniest line of the entire thing.

Never mind the fact that I love Patrick Swayze (may he rest in peace) so much, and have since then, and probably long before then, as well. And that Johnny Castle is every girl's dream man. Hot, bad boy, really a good boy, the guy you meet on your summer vacation and
learn from. Did I mention how hot he is? I did? Oh, good. I thought you missed it.

Ah, Johnny. To have met a man like you when vacationing in the Catskills with my family. Although I would have been wayyyyy too young at the time, and it wouldn't have been as wonderful as it was for Baby. And you would have gone to jail, and, uh, well, let's just leave all of this in my dream world, shall we?
