Geek Of The Week: Baby From Dirty Dancing

"I carried a watermelon," could be the geekiest sentence every uttered.
It was the summer of 1963 and yes indeed, she did have the time of her life. In the all time favorite movie, Dirty Dancing, Jennifer Grey plays Frances "Baby" Houseman who spends her summer vacation with her family at the Kellerman resort. Baby was portrayed as geeky and awkward, being the daughter of a doctor who dreamed of being in the Peace Corps. But after meeting cool guy Johnny Castle, played by Patrick Swayze, she breaks free from the chains and becomes a dancing queen.
