  • She tells the younger gals that she was a dancer back in her day.
  • It's the day of the dance show, and Penny helps Baby get dressed for the big event.
  • Penny tells Baby that she thought Robbie loved her.
  • And she's scared to have the abortion.
  • Baby comforts Penny and tells her she'll be fine.
  • Penny asks Lisa, who's flirting with Robbie, to cover for her and tell mommy and daddy that she has a headache.
  • Considering Baby did the same for her, that's fair, right?
  • Baby skips Bingo Night at Kellerman's for the big dance with Johnny: "Mambo Magic."
  • The lights come up, and Baby looks terrified.
  • Her stage fright gets the best of her at first, but she soon warms up and heats up the dance floor.
  • She makes a few missteps, but regains her groove.
  • When it's time for the lift, Baby chickens out and bungles it.
  • But together, she and Johnny get back in the groove, and the audience applauds their finale.
  • As the dance ends, Baby sees Mrs. Schumacher enter the auditorium. She's worried that she'll be recognized.
