Inquiring Minds Want To Know. . .
At the beginning of “Dirty Dancing,” Baby sets us into the story-frame with a voice-over as we watch the family car driving up the turnpike there in Maine. She says:
That was the summer of 1963 – when everybody called me Baby, and it didn’t occur to me to mind. That was before President Kennedy was shot, before the Beatles came, when I couldn’t wait to join the Peace Corps, and I thought I’d never find a guy as great as my dad. That was the summer we went to Kellerman’s.
So my question is — what do Frances and Johnny do, now that they’ve defied just about everyone? Does Johnny join the housepainters union? Does Frances go on to Mount Holyoke? More important — does she join the Peace Corps?
What logically proceeds from the ending of “Dirty Dancing?” and! — bonus question — what’s the happy ending?
Oh. Today’s blog title is “The Time of My Life,” Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes. Here’s your link.
