At a resort, (female) dancer Penny gets pregnant by waiter Robbie (he is a "college boy"). Now she needs money, which she doesn't have, probably to have an abortion. But Robbie doesn't care about it at all. Frances tries to help Penny and talks to Robbie:
- You can't just leave 'er. I mean...
- I didn't blow a summer hauling toasted bagels just to bail out some little chick who probably bowled every guy in the place.

Dirty Dancing, movie

I haven't found anywhere the meaning of "bowl" as "have sex". Maybe, was it slang in the sixties (when the movie is set)?
