"Nobody puts Baby in a corner."

"Dirty Dancing" - the 1987 film that included the classic line - is back in theaters this week, just in time for Valentine's Day.

The movie, which starred Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, will be shown in a select number of North Texas theaters on Wednesday. Some locations have showings at both 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Swayze, a native Texan, earned a Golden Globe nomination for his role as Johnny in "Dirty Dancing." Producers say his line about putting Grey's character, Baby, in a corner was a throwaway, and that Swayze was reluctant to say it in the movie.  

This September will mark the tenth anniversary of Swayze's death from pancreatic cancer at age 57.
