One Last Summer Movie

Dirty Dancing
It's still hard to believe Patrick Swayze is gone. He was something of a force of nature.  And you know a movie has become firmly embedded in the shared consciousness when one can say something as non-specific as 'Nobody puts Baby in a corner', and you think of a young woman in a party dress, not a toddler in a timeout.  Have some Dirty Dancing trivia, on me!  OK, on the good folks at Dance Spirit magazine.  But I found it.

Who is Baby, actually Frances, named after?
Frances Perkins, the first woman selected for the Cabinet  Huh.

Where did Johnny learn to dance? 
Arthur Murray School of Dance!!!  Really.

 What does Baby say when she first meets Johnny? 
"I carried a watermelon."  Really??
