Nostalgia alert! "Dirty Dancing" turned 25 on Tuesday, prompting many to scratch their heads and mutter something about time flying while reminiscing about the timeless love story. And though Patrick Swayze passed away almost three years ago, his performance -- and that of a young Jennifer Grey -- lives on, both on screen and in the minds of the movie's many fans.

Grey and Swayze weren't the only stars of the show. Devotees will remember Jane Brucker's turn as Lisa Houseman, the ever-confident singer/dancer and older sister of Grey's character Baby. Brucker went on to star in a few other projects, appearing on the small screen in "Wiseguy" and "Ellen" and in theaters in the film "Stealing Home." Eventually, however, she decided to go into semi-retirement and focus on raising her two daughters. She still occasionally acts.

As Baby, Jennifer Grey captivated audience with her powerful transformation from an insecure young lady into a bold woman. She looks a bit different now, due primarily to a nose job which she later admitted regretting. Grey, however, did go on to win a season of "Dancing With The Stars" and is lined up for "In Your Eyes," a Joss Whedon project. (Whedon directed Grey's husband, Clark Gregg, in a small art film known as "The Avengers.")
