Things in Grease you only notice as an adult
Danny seems to not want to let Sandy go, but Sandy is due to return to Australia. She is upset, thinking that this is the end of their romance and that they will never see each other again.
Danny tries to comfort her by telling her that "it's not the end, it's just the beginning". However, Sandy's family has a change of plans and does not return to Australia, but Danny is unaware of this.
Through "Summer Nights" Sandy and Danny describe their vacation, and it is made clear that Danny is exaggerating; at the time, however, neither is aware of the other's presence at the school.

The Pink Ladies decide to reunite Danny and Sandy, but Danny wants to protect his cool image, and his behavior towards Sandy causes her to storm off in tears. Danny stares after her for a moment, but then quickly turns back into a cool guy and goes off with his friends.
Frenchy attempts to cheer Sandy up by inviting her to a sleepover at her house with the rest of the gang; Sandy comes along, but Rizzo soon gets fed up with Sandy's goody-two-shoes behavior: Sandy chokes on a cigarette, cannot stand the taste of wine, and is horrified at the idea of having her ears pierced. Frenchy insists and takes her into the bathroom, but Sandy vomits at the first sight of blood. Frenchy announces to Jan Jamie Donnelly and Marty Dinah Manoff that she is dropping out of Rydell and going to beauty school, which she calls a very strategic career move.
Rizzo leaves the sleepover and she and Kenickie Jeff Conaway flirt, then Kenickie invites her into the car, and dumps the other T-Birds. Danny leaves of his own accord while Rizzo and Kenickie drive off together and the other T-Birds go for pizza. Marty, the flirtatious member of The Pink Ladies, decides to write to one of her numerous pen pals, while Sandy goes outside, and decides that in spite of everything, she still loves Danny, singing "Hopelessly Devoted to You", a poignant love song that was added for the movie and was a big hit as a single.
The scene shifts to Rizzo and Kenickie making out passionately in the back seat of his new car.
They plan to take things a step further, but Kenickie's condom breaks. Rizzo, however, is unable to resist Kenickie, and they decide to have sex anyway. While at work repairing the car, the T-Birds fantasize about what it will look like when it has had a paint job, singing "Greased Lightning".
Newton-John, who is native to England and lived most of her life in Australia, was unable to perform with a convincing American accent, and thus her character was rewritten to be Australian. Lorenzo Lamas was a last-minute replacement for Steven Fordwho developed stage fright shortly before filming and backed out. His role contained no spoken dialogue and required Lamas to dye his hair blond to avoid looking like most of the other T-Birds although Conaway and Ward were also blonds.
Coincidentally, Frankie Avalon and Randal Kleiser had both appeared in 's Fireballthe latter as an extra. Filming locations[ edit ] The car race in the film took place at the Los Angeles River. The exterior Rydell scenes, including the basketball, baseball and track segments, were shot at Venice High School in Venice, Californiawhile the Rydell interiors, including the high school dance, were filmed at Huntington Park High School.
The sleepover was shot at a private house in East Hollywood. The drive-in movie scenes were shot at the Burbank Pickwick Drive-In it was closed and torn down in and a shopping center took its place.
The reference was placed into the movie to give some authenticity to the time period in which it's set, because Funicello would've been a cultural reference point at the time, particularly for lusty young men.
Rizzo is so against the idea of "Summer Nights" she's not part of the choreography It's the first big banger of the movie, but there's one character who refuses to get caught up in the awesomeness of "Summer Nights" aside from maybe Sonny, who is mad at Danny for bragging about his prowess with the ladies.
From the outset, Rizzo is not interested in taking part in the conversations surrounding Sandy's summer romance. She tells her there's no such thing as a special guy, and tries to put her off even telling the story.
When the song kicks off, she sits stiffly at the opposite end of the table from everybody else, refusing to sway along with the others while Sandy trills about Danny.
Then, she lays down on the bench, sunning herself, during her one line "cause he sounds like a drag". And finally, Rizzo purposely pushes Sandy and Patti over into a trashcan, ruining their poise and disrupting the song entirely.
The idea of integrating the choreography with Rizzo's refusal to join in is a brilliant, hilarious choice that's totally fitting for her character. The song may be one of the most popular and beloved songs to come from Grease, but it's also majorly problematic, particularly nowadays with everything we know about rape culture, issues of consent, etc. One of the standout lyrics sees Kenickie asking Danny "did she put up a fight?
The whole thing is engineered to show off how much Danny is lying about the dirtier elements of the summer fling, while Sandy coos about how romantic it all was, meaning the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. But lines like "Did you get very far?Grease (1978) Cast │Then & Now
How much say did Sandy have in these seaside activities anyway?! Rizzo is the most sympathetic character The older you get, the more you realize that Rizzo is actually the most sympathetic character in the whole movie.
Grease: ‘Danny & Sandy were DEAD for the whole movie after drowning at the beach’
Frenchie is sweet and kind but she also drops out of high school in her final year when she could probably just wait, Marty doesn't get enough of an arc, and Sandy, as the song goes, is a bit of a sap. Rizzo is the most layered and nuanced female character, brilliantly played by a raw and committed Stockard Channing. She's the only one of the girls who gets a proper arc, who makes mistakes and then learns from them, has plenty of funny moments like when she makes fun of Marty's glasses because "you can still see your face"and she gets the best song too.
Just how good Channing is in this role was made evident during Grease Live when a brilliant, but still lacking, Vanessa Hudgens struggled to bring the same level of emotional struggle and authenticity to the role.
Kenickie pulls out a knife to fight the Scorpions, Doody pulls out a water gun YouTube The T-Birds' long-running turf war with rival gang The Scorpions is hinted at throughout the movie, from the "75 cents for the whole car" comment to their leader taking Rizzo and Marty to the dance. A final showdown sees their sworn enemies beaten and disgraced at Thunder Road thanks to a tricky body of water.
Before that, though, there's a moment at the pep rally that demands a closer look. On the surface, it isn't too much of an incident. The Scorpions cruise by and the T-Birds wonder aloud if they want to "rumble. Kenickie, smelling a fight in the air, whips out his trusty knife. Doody, in direct contrast to this, pulls out a little yellow water gun. It's the same gun that's brandished throughout the flick but its appearance here is noteworthy because, well, what did Doody think he was going to do with that?
The lyrics to "Greased Lightning" are really dirty In a movie filled with plentiful, blatant innuendos, "Greased Lightning" might actually boast the most in a single four-minute period. Don't forget, right before it all kicks off, Sonny quips "the chick is gonna have to put out before she even gets in.
He pulls down a roll of the stuff, rubs it on his crotch, and then runs around the car with it.

The implications are clear. On another note, why is Danny singing this big number about someone else's car? Rizzo comes out of the bathroom eating an ice cream cone YouTube The Frosty Palace is the scene for many of Grease's biggest moments. Whether it's Frenchie listening while her "guardian angel" sings dreamily to her about going back to high school, Rizzo throwing a shake at Kenickie, or the entire staff crowding around to watch the kids on TV at the dance, it's the place to be.
When Danny is first confronted with Sandy and her new beau, he deals with the situation, er, pretty poorly by strolling right up to her at the jukebox and proving how much he doesn't care by fake-laughing at accusations of jealousy. Before all that, however, Rizzo winds Danny up for staring longingly at Sandy by asking if someone is "snaking" him.
Blink and you'll miss it, but right beforehand, she strolls out of the bathroom with an ice cream cone in hand all the while licking it.
