Step Up is a 2006 American romantic dance film. Set in Baltimore Maryland, the film follows the tale of the disadvantaged Tyler Gage and the privileged modern dancer Nora Clark, who find themselves paired up in a showcase that determines both of their futures. Realizing that they only have one chance, they finally work together.

Nora: Catch me.
Tyler: Now what?
Nora: Okay, um, I get it. You're not gonna use me to get out of cleaning the windows, even if you were capable of dancing.
Tyler Gage: I'm not trying to get out of anything. And I know you saw me the other day.
Nora: Thank you, but, umm, I can find someone else.
Tyler Gage: [Goes to leave] Aight. I was just trying to help.
Nora: Okay, wait.
[He stops and turns around]
Nora: Catch me.
Tyler Gage: [She runs towards him and he catches her, then he lets her fall in his arms] Now what?
Nora: Um... put me down.
[He puts her down]

Nora: You know what this means, right?
Tyler Gage: No, what's it mean?
Nora: You're gonna have to get some tights.
Tyler Gage: Done.
[He kisses her]


Tyler Gage: [about a dance Nora imagines] If you imagined it with dancers you should do it!
Nora: Where am I going to get dancers?
Tyler Gage: You know, you do go to a school just busting with kids in tights!


Mac Carter: [after the girl he was making out with leaves because his little brother interrupts them] I swear to God- you must have all the recessive genes in the family!


Mac Carter: [after Tyler gets in a fight at a party] You feel like because you're a white boy you gotta overcompensate or something?
Tyler Gage: Wow, like wow, you got me figured out, Montel
Mac Carter: Yeah, well you're the one going Jerry Springer all the time
Skinny Carter: Hey, if you're Montel and you're Jerry, then I'm like...
Mac Carter: Jenny Jones
Tyler Gage: No, like Ellen
Mac Carter: Except Ellen gets more chicks than he does!


Miles Darby: [about Tyler and Nora no longer working together] Man I bet you've been moping around too.
Tyler Gage: [looking happy] She's been moping?
Miles Darby: I'm not saying anything
Tyler Gage: [laughing] Come on man! Tell me, have you seen a tear?


Mac Carter: [seeing Tyler teaching a bunch of people the dance he and Nora made up] Man, what is this?
Tyler Gage: It's part of my community service


Skinny Carter: yo lemme do it this time.
[talking about stealing a car]
Mac Carter: Skin, you the look out.
Skinny Carter: But why can't I do it this time?
Tyler Gage: Can you do it?
Skinny Carter: Yeah.
Tyler Gage: Let him do it then.
Mac Carter: You know what? Here you go tough guy.
[hands him a crow bar to break into the car with]
Mac Carter: See that one right there. Go get it.
Tyler Gage: That car's got an alarm on it.
Mac Carter: I know.
Tyler Gage: [the car alarm goes off and the boys run away] Dude, I told you that alarm was gonna go off.
Skinny Carter: Wait a minute. Ya'll set me up?
Tyler Gage: You shoulda saw your face.


[making fun of Skinny, comparing him to a talk show host]
Tyler Gage: You're like Ellen.
Mac Carter: But even she gets more girls than you!


Camille: Guess what she bought for us. Cap'n crunch. Peanut butter Cap'n crunch. I told you she liked us.
Camille: [takes bite of cereal]
Tyler Gage: Let me get a bite of that?
Camille: Okay. One bite, just one bite.
[Tyler takes the bowl and has a huge bite]
Camille: That's the biggest bite I've ever seen! Come on! Give it back!
Tyler Gage: [Tyler takes another bite]
Camille: Get your own! I spit on that spoon!
[Tyler pushes it back]
Camille: Oh yeah, now you give it back.


Director Gordon: And you say that he can dance?
Nora: He's... adequate.
Tyler Gage: Adequate?
Director Gordon: See. That's my concern. He's not taking this seriously.
Tyler Gage: Look, I'm sorry. It's just... ya'll are talking about dancing like it's rocket science or something.
Nora: It's just for a couple of weeks. Until Andrew gets better.
Tyler Gage: Yeah.
Director Gordon: This would be your risk Nora. It's your Senior piece.
Nora: I know.
Director Gordon: Well, don't make me regret my decision.
Nora: [talking to Tyler] 2:30 tomorrow. Bring your tights.
Tyler Gage: Tights? Wait. What?


Director Gordon: See, that's my concern... he's not taking this seriously.
Tyler Gage: Well, I'm sorry... it's just that you guys talk about dancing like it's rocket science or something.


Lucy Avila: [talking about Colin] He's sophisticated,a real man.
Miles Darby: Sophisticated? A real man? Yeah, his butt is gonna be surrounded by sophisticated in jail. How long you had your license? 6 months? 7?
Lucy Avila: I am very mature for my age. Thank you.
Miles Darby: Oh yeah,that's great! That's so perfect for the witness stand!


Lucy Avila: Woo! I love a man in a uniform!


Skinny Carter: [coming back from playing a basketball game] Man, I was droppin' dimes today!
Mac Carter: Man, you tripped over your own shoes!
Tyler Gage: Twice actually, but you rolled outta the second one pretty nice, you played it off pretty cool.


Camille: Are you going to jail?
Tyler Gage: No, I'm not going to jail, but they will have to take me to jail if you don't start knocking. Get outta here.


Miles Darby: I left my G-4 at home.
Tyler Gage: [coughing] It's in his bag.


Skinny Carter: So, can I still come to the party?
Mac Carter: Skinny! Hey come on!
Skinny Carter: Man, he ain't sayin' nothin' bout me. He said y'all couldn't go to the party. He didn't say nothin' bout Skinny. Nothing!
Mac Carter: Will you shut up?


Miles Darby: Look, I can play it alright. I just prefer playin' wit myself.
Tyler Gage: Woa, what?
Lucy Avila: He makes it too easy.
Miles Darby: No, not playin' wit myself. Just listen.


Miles Darby: If you wanna be with someone who doesn't appreciate what a good thing he's got that's 100% your business. I just thought you'd be smart enough to know you deserve better.
