Tony Manero knows the old days are over - But nobody's gonna tell him he can't feel that good again. Taglines


Laura: Oh, don't take it personally.
Tony Manero: I've got to, there's no one else in the room!

Tony Manero: Did you hear the way she talked? All intelligent like.
Jackie: Tony, an accent doesn't make you intelligent, if it did, you'd be Einstein.

Doorman: Are you expected?
Tony Manero: To do what?

Joy: Hello, I'm Joy...
Tony Manero: ...And I'm happiness.

Tony Manero: Last time I came over, I almost got brain damaged. You guys party too hard, you ought to be a tag team.

Jackie: You know a woman's career as a dancer is as half as long as a man's? So that means I have as half as many chances of making it, right?

Laura: Who do you think you're dealing with? Some little groupie who jumps when you call, is this who you think I am? We met, we made it, what do you think it was, true love? And you say I used you but what about you using me? Everybody uses everybody, don't they?

Tony Manero: Don't worry. She's in good hands.
Carl: And what are you, Allstate, pal?
Tony Manero: Yeah, you want disability?

Jessie: You wanna dance? You follow my rules! This is not a democracy! You know, you're not the greatest dancer ever to hit Broadway.

Tony Manero: Everybody uses everbody, don't they?
Jessie: Go to hell, Manero!

Mrs. Manero: I don't believe it and don't get fresh with me. This, this attitude you're talking about, that's what got you out of this damn neighborhood.

Tony Manero: You know what I wanna do?
