A Brooklyn teenager feels his only chance to succeed is as the king of the disco floor. His carefree youth and weekend dancing help him to forget the reality of his bleak life.

Connie: So, are you as good in bed as you are on that dance floor?
Tony Manero: You know, Connie, if you're as good in bed as you are on the dance floor, then you're one lousy fuck.
Connie: Then how come they always send me flowers the next morning?
Tony Manero: I dunno. Maybe they thought you was dead.
Tony Manero: Would ya just watch the hair. Ya know, I work on my hair a long time and you hit it. He hits my hair.
Fusco: You can save a little, build a future.
Tony Manero: Oh fuck the future!
Fusco: No, Tony! You can't fuck the future. The future fucks you! It catches up with you and it fucks you if you ain't planned for it?
Tony Manero: Look, tonight is the future, and I am planning for it! There's this shirt I gotta buy, a beautiful shirt.
Bobby C.: I have a friend. He's a very good friend, and he got a girl pregnant. And I wanted to know: if you had to make a choice between getting an abortion and having to get married, what would you do?
Stephanie: Well, who would I have to marry?
Bobby C.: You'd have to marry me.
Stephanie: I think I'd get an abortion.
Tony Manero: Al Pacino! Attica! Attica! Attica!
Tony Manero: You know, you and I got the same last initial.
Stephanie: [sarcastically] Wow. Does that mean when we get married I won't have to change the monogram on my luggage?
Doreen: [to Tony] Can I wipe your forehead?
Bobby C.: My girlfriend, she loves the taste of communion wafers.
Tony Manero: There's ways of killing yourself without killing yourself.
Tony Manero: If you put your dick in a spic, does it get bigger than a nigger?
Double J.: [as he watches Bobby C. fall] "God gave His only son."
Stephanie: You know all about the bridge, don't you?
Tony Manero: I know everything about that bridge.
Tony Manero: Know what else? There's a guy buried in the cement
Stephanie: Really?
Tony Manero: Know how it happened? While they were working on it, pouring the cement, he slipped off on the upper part of the bridge and, you know, fell in... Dumb fuck.
Flo: [to Tony as he walks in the house] Where you been?
[he doesn't answer]
Frank Sr: Your mother wants to know where you been. Where you been?
Flo: Your father's askin' ya! Where you been?
Stephanie: Nice move. Did you make that up?
Tony Manero: Yeah, well I saw it on TV first, then I made it up.
Tony Manero: You make it with some of these chicks, they think you gotta dance with them.
Girl in Disco: [Tony Manero makes his way onto the dance floor at 2001 Odyssey, dancing with two girls] Kiss me.
[Tony ignores her request]
Girl in Disco: KISS ME!
[Tony kisses her]
Girl in Disco: Ohh, I just kissed Al Pacino!
Tony Manero: Are you a nice girl or are you a cunt?
Annette: Can't I be both?
Tony Manero: No. It's a decision a girl's gotta make early in life, if she's gonna be a nice girl or a cunt.
Frank Sr: [commenting on Tony's four dollar raise in salary] Four dollars? You know what four dollars buys today? It don't ever buy three dollars!
Tony Manero: I don't see no one givin' you a raise down at unemployment.
Frank Sr: Four dollars? Shit!
Tony Manero: I knew you'd piss on it. Go on, just piss on it, alright? A raise says like you're good, you know? You know how many times someone told me I was good in my life? Two! Twice! Two fuckin' times! This raise today, and dancing at the disco!
[Gets up and walks out of the room]
Tony Manero: You sure as fuck never did! Asshole!
Double J.: [to a girl he just got done having sex with] What did you say your name was?
Frank Manero Jr.: Tony, the only way you're gonna survive is to do what you think is right, not what they keep trying to jam you into. You let 'em do that and you're gonna end up in nothing but misery!
Tony Manero: She can dance, you know that? She's got the wrong partner of course, but she can dance.
Joey: So then why don't you ask her?
Tony Manero: Fuck you.
Joey: Which position?
Tony Manero: Why are you such a cocktease?
Stephanie: Don't you call me no goddamned cocktease!
Tony Manero: I gotta have an afternoon off, and I'm takin' it.
Fusco: If you do, you're fired.
Tony Manero: I'm DOIN' it!
Fusco: Then you're FIRED!
Tony Manero: Then fuck you, asshole!
Fusco: ...And the horse you rode in on.
Stephanie: I'm sick of guys who ain't got their shit together!
Tony Manero: Well, all ya need is a salad bowl, and a potato masher,
[he mimics stirring in a bowl]
Tony Manero: and you got your shit together!
Joey: Hey Tony, Double J's been in the car twenty-five minutes with some chick!
Tony Manero: So?
Joey: So, I can't get the selfish prick out!
Tony Manero: [to Annette] These guys can't do nothin' without me.
Tony Manero: You know what Gus, I feel like breaking your broken legs!
Annette: Ain't ya gonna ask me to sit down?
Tony Manero: No, 'cause you would do it.
Annette: Bet you'd ask me to lay down.
Tony Manero: No, you would not do it.
Joey: You had coffee with Joe Namath?
Stephanie: Yeah! He asked me what it was like to be 21, and I told him I didn't know, 'cause I was just twenty.
Joey: Then what?
Stephanie: That's all.
Tony Manero: [with his mouth full] Ain't that enough?
Joey: Hey, don't you never chew, Tony? Don't you never chew?
Tony Manero: [annoyed] Hey, when my mother dies, I'll give you the job, all right?
Tony Manero: Hey, you know you assholes almost broke my pussy finger.
Gus: Oh yeah, you wouldn't know which one it was.
Tony Manero: [walks into clothing store after seeing silk shirt in window] You do lay-away?
Haberdashery Salesman: As long as it doesn't turn into a ten-year mortgage.
Tony Manero: [hands salesman some cash and prepares to leave] I want that shirt in the window.
Haberdashery Salesman: Wait, let me get you a receipt.
Tony Manero: [still walking out] I trust you.
Haberdashery Salesman: No... DON'T trust me!
