Erik Jones: Where are you going?
Eva: We're going out for a smoke
Erik Jones: Come downstairs, it's Marlboro country!
Kathleen: You are in big trouble.
Cooper: She's in my ballet.
Kathleen: Oh please... she's a heartbeat away from tattooing your name on her ass.
Eva Rodriguez: What, did you go to a special bitch academy or something?
Eva Rodriguez: I screwed up any chance I had back in September. But I started dancing long before this stupid workshop, and I'm gonna keep on dancing long after it. So tomorrow is one more day I get to dance.
Erik Jones: My stage name is Erik O. Jones after Oprah. She's my idol.
Eva Rodriguez: Eva Rodriquez, after no one.
Erik Jones: Oh, an individual.
Maureen Cummings: Erik got injured today. And do you know the first thing I thought when I saw him go down?
Jim Gordon: What?
Maureen Cummings: "I wish that was me." So that made me think, you know, 'cause that's not a normal reaction. How much of what you liked about me was because I was a ballet dancer, and how much because I was me?
[In pas de deux class]
Sergei: I am your slave.
Eva Rodriguez: I'd believe it more if you weren't staring at your fucking reflection when you said it.
Instructor: If someone wants to hear profanity, Miss Rodriguez, they can take a subway. They don't need to spend sixty dollars on a ballet ticket.
Instructor: Though she has a point.
Eva: What a prick.
Jody: But he was really nice about it.
Eva: Being nice when you say something pricky is even prickier.
Jody: Cooper, you're an amazing dancer, and you're a great choreographer, but as a boyfriend... you kinda suck.
Maureen Cummings: I've got priorities. I mean, you only get to be a dancer for ten years - maybe fifteen if you don't get injured. So for the next decade at least...
Jim Gordon: Hey, all I'm asking for is a date...
Jim Gordon: Have you seen my girlfriend? Tall, Thin, legs for days?
Eva: Yeah I pitched her overboard.
Eva Rodriguez: A girl's got a right to know what kind of hound she's saving herself for.
Eva Rodriguez: Truth? In terms of technique, you are behind. But the people here know what they're looking for. And on the day of you audition, they saw it. In you.
Jody Sawyer: Now all they see is the wrong body type.
Eva: So, you know the story with this Maureen chick?
Sergei: You're living with Maureen? Oh, good luck.
Eva: Big time bitch?
Sergei: Biggest time.
Eva Rodriguez: [Sergei drops Maureen] Careful with that one. You break it, you bought it!
Jody Sawyer: She's so good.
Eva: Yeah, just ask her.
Charlie: Are you asking me out?
Jody: Well... yeah. Are you saying yes?
Charlie: I guess so... yeah.
Charlie: Whatever you feel, just dance it.
Mrs. Cummings: You don't just throw away your dream.
Maureen Cummings: It's your dream... and it means more to you than it ever did to me.
Erik Jones: That's Sergei, that's Jody, that's Eva, I'm Erik, and you're cute...
