Patrick Swayze delivered some of the most famous lines in modern movies. Here are a few of the best.

From Dirty Dancing as Johnny Castle:

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”

"Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame."

"Fight harder, huh? I don't see you fighting so hard, Baby. I don't see you running up to daddy telling him I'm your guy."

"You just put your pickle on everybody's plate, college boy, and leave the hard stuff to me."

"No, no. Look, you've gotta understand what it's like, Baby. You come from the streets and suddenly you're up here, and these women, they are throwing themselves at ya, and they smell so good, and they really take care of themselves. I mean, I never knew women could be like that, you know?"

"No, the-the way he saved her. I-I mean, I-I could never do anything like that. That was somethin'. I mean, the reason people treat me like I'm nothin' is because I'm nothin'."

From Point Break as Bodhi:

"Yeah, I know man. Ain't it wild? That's what makes it so interesting. You can do what you want, and make up your own rules. Why be a servant to the law, when you can be its master?"

"If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love."

"Look at it! It's a once in a lifetime opportunity, man! Let me go out there and let me get one wave, just one wave before you take me in. I mean, come on man, where I am I gonna go? Cliffs on both sides! I'm not gonna paddle my way to New Zealand! Come on, compadre. Come on!"

From Roadhouse as Dalton:

"All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never underestimate your opponent. Expect the unexpected. Two, take it outside. Never start anything inside the bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice."

"People who really want to have a good time won't come to a slaughterhouse. And we've got entirely too many troublemakers here. Too many 40-year-old adolescents, felons, power drinkers and trustees of modern chemistry."

From Ghost as Sam Wheat:

"It's amazing, Molly. The love inside, you take it with you. See ya."
