[Maika] Dirty Dancing. Well, yeah.
The sex scene and the song that we were just singing.
If you guys don't mind helping me out.
Can you guys sing with me?
How does it start?
♫ I'm having the time of my life
♫ And I owe it all to you
♫ Oh, I...
Something like that. Anyways, you know they're dancing.
And it's getting sexy, and he does the move.
So, that's kind of what gets me going.
Obviously, I've tried to do the move.
Did it go as smoothly?
I'm like, so should we try?
And they're like, okay.
Well, usually, like, I run and then I stop cause I'm scared
that I won't be caught, and then I'll fall.
I did it before, and then I saw it in Crazy, Stupid, Love,
and I was like, okay, Ryan Gosling is, his abs,
and his arms. He could pick me up, but other,
I don't know, other guys probably can't.
