Show Notes Transcript

Grease is the word, and it's also the latest installment on the Soda Pop Culture Club. After the unexpected popularity of their Grease 2 episode, Mike and Anthony thought it only right to revisit the original, which became an absolute phenomenon. Mike and Anthony talk about the film, the fan theories (did Sandy drown and was this all a dream?), and the fact that Danny Zuko is pretty much a turd that can't stop screwing stuff up, but still gets the girl in the end and a flying car. There's a lot to unpack in this episode, so split an Eskimo pie with someone you know while taking this one in.

Michael:

All right. So now do you want to tell them what this what we're doing here? I mean, they'll obviously they'll see the title, but do you want to present it to them? Sure.

Anthony:

We did the second one. And it's one of our most popular fucking episodes for some reason. So figured we might as well go back and do the original. Y'all know it. Y'all love it. The Greatest Love Story Ever Told 1978 Greece, it's the word. It is more than a word. It's also a movie.

Michael:

And you know, something you put on your ball bearings? Yeah, I'm talking about. Alright, so do you want to? Do you want to tell them what this movie is about if they've been hiding under that rock?

Anthony:

Yeah, for those of you that don't know, which would be weird if you didn't grease. The 1978 musical. We've got king of the T birds. Danny Zuko has the greatest summer ever. With his new love Sandy, but she's going back to Australia. It's so sad. And he looks so epic on the beach together frolicking. Lo and behold, Sandy doesn't go back to Australia somehow manages to change plans and enroll in high school in a couple days at the end of summer, and attend ryedale we're now Danny is faced with being the cool leader of the T birds. Or the lovesick puppy. He was on the beach. And he's a little bit of both and kind of whacked out. And there's a lot of music in it.

Michael:

Yeah, that's pretty much it. That's it. That's that's pretty much that's the plot man. Is it? It's a it's an interesting it is an interesting movie that way. A lovesick puppy i think that's that's about it. Yeah, I didn't think you'd go that direction. But I guess

Anthony:

this is Rachel and Ross before Rachel and Ross.

Michael:

So you're saying the friends is just a rip off of this?

Anthony:

Yeah, kinda. No, no,

Michael:

it's, it's a rip off now. And that's what makes it not so great. Because

Anthony:

it shifts things. There's a little bit a little bit of a correlation there. I think.

Michael:

Yeah, I get Yeah, you know, I'm just talking I'm friends. Because anytime I have a chance to I'll do it. So you want to get into guessing some things and yeah, we can do that. Okay, here. I'll hit the thing. And this time, I think I'll hit it right.

Unknown:

Hey, hey, hey, so just this hit it with and I don't want to cheating. not cheating.

Michael:

What do you think they spent to make this money masterpiece.

Anthony:

I really have no fucking clue. It's 1978 It's a musical. The effects in it aren't very special. So I'll come on. I'm gonna say hot dog, motherfucker, I am just gonna throw out. 2 million.

Michael:

Oh, you're light. You're actually a little light, it's 6 million. Okay, it's 6 million. But you know this, it's harder because we've done so many 80s and 90s, the 70s a whole different game because they made movies on shoestring budgets, you know, made more of them. So it's kind of hard. You don't know which one's gonna be that phenomenon. Like this was right. Thank you hope you just didn't know. Like, they would have been happy if this movie made 50 million. Yeah. But that's not the budget. That's not what they made on the grow. So I hope you don't get that. So it's way way more than that. So it's like, okay, would have been happy on that budget to make that. So that's why I'm saying back then they can make them on less of a budget and know they're still gonna make money. So what do you think knowing that it didn't make just 50 million? What do you think they made in the box office?

Anthony:

Well, now that you gave me a floor, I know it's more than 50 million. I'm going to say. So I'll just say 92.

Michael:

All right. So your way light. Okay. Um, but let me check something because I want to check something out. I didn't do the conversion on this.

Anthony:

Way to go.

Michael:

Well, I'm not good at it. I'm not good. Doesn't face inflation. Thanks. So anyways, the it gross back then. Basically $366 million. Shit. So I was trying to get the conversion on that, but I'm horrible at it. I thought maybe the YouTube would just hit it with hit me with it. But it's not that good for me. So 366 million. How many zeros is that? 123456. From 1978. Right? How much do you think it is? How much do you think it is? Like in adjusted dollars?

Anthony:

I don't know. Don't make me do that.

Unknown:

1.5 billion 1.5. But this is a billion dollar movie, baby. This is a billion dollar movie. That's fucking ridiculous. Yeah, that is just ridiculous. I mean, man, a minute. A billion. That's what the be buddy? A bee bee? bee with the billion. Okay, so um, now you know the budget. What do you think the critics thought of this movie?

Anthony:

Well, I mean, it was, it's a phenomenon for sure. With the ratings, I don't know I'm saying the movie itself. But something tells me the critics didn't probably like it as much. I have no idea. But I'm gonna guess. I'm going to guess somewhere in the 60s. I'm going to say 67

Michael:

your little like they were at 75%. But like you said, not a not like some of the other movies like not like stand by me. Right, right. I always looked at like, I always look at that one as the point like that movie. So good. Everybody loved it. So but then what do you think the audience thought knowing what the critic

Anthony:

audience I mean, for it's a billion dollar movie with inflation. Let's say 87. Fuck you. Fuck. Fuck all. That is exact number. Yeah. Cheater. We've already had this discussion. I swore on my penis on the other episode that I am not cheating or looking this up.

Michael:

means I get your penis because you've had to cheat. Oh, yeah.

Anthony:

I am not gonna make your dreams come true. But when's when's the first time you saw this?

Michael:

For me? Yeah, back then. Um, I didn't see it in the theater. I saw it at home probably on on TV. Whenever it made. Its a television debut of some sort. Yeah. We always had HBO so I don't know what year we started getting HBO.

Anthony:

This one for me is an interesting movie. Yeah. The first time I saw it was in the theater in my mom's belly.

Michael:

Oh, so you were you were incubating. You were in your vacation period?

Anthony:

Yes, I was. They want to see it while my mom was knocked up with me.

Michael:

So yeah, I probably saw it on HBO. As soon as I hit HBO because I know my sisters like the sister like it, you know, and we had cable as soon as it came here to small town, Ohio. And I have had Had it ever since we had it before even MTV was launched I remember the day MTV launch so it probably was a 79 I was probably five or something like that. So yeah, long time ago. I'm an old guy. You are You are I was not in your mother's belly for that matter, so I'm gonna give you some reviews. I have john r McEwen. Okay, now these reviews are more modern because obviously we don't have the ones in the past to find anymore as much online but so this guy john r McEwen from film quits online. He says grapes reps, but grapes. Greece wraps up with a sentimental message extracted from Sandy saga. If you want to make friends take up smoking and dress like a hooker. Now that family values so that's that was a positive one. I thought it was funny, though. So uh, Brian McKay of evil critic calm and I think the name of the website kind of gives up that he does bad reviews,

Anthony:

you would think so?

Michael:

I don't like that as much. But I like what he says. I didn't know that in the 1950s high schools were populated by 30 year olds who constantly broke into nails on a backboard musical numbers. I have a feeling he had a take on that where he didn't like it. That's that's what I'm thinking here. You're

Anthony:

feeling man? Jesus.

Michael:

He put them out there, man. So yeah, that's what that's what those guys thought. This is a legendary. For us. least for me. I think this like, they like defined musical tastes for a lot of people. And if you liked it or not, it kind of tells you how a person is whether they like Greece or not. Someone doesn't like Greece, I feel as a character flaw.

Anthony:

Yeah, I'd feel they're probably working for a foreign government.

Michael:

Yeah, doing something like that. Probably Australia, right? Because they don't like it because they lost Sandy. So um, so do you want to read the first section? Or do you want me to?

Anthony:

I will. Oh, go ahead, man. I saw this since I saw it before you did? Technically.

Michael:

Through the belly button. Go ahead. Yeah,

Anthony:

yeah, it's weird way to watch a movie. Alright, the summer of 1958. local boy Danny Zuko and vacationing Sandy Olson. Not one of the Olsen twins meet at the beach and fall in love. When summer comes to an end. Sadly, Sandy is going back to Australia. And frets they may never see each other again. But Danny tells her it's only the beginning. We find out it actually is later on at the start of Danny's senior year at ryedale High School with the worst football team in fucking America. He resumes his role as the leader of the taper gang consisting of his best friend Kentucky plus duty sunny and putty the pink ladies a click of greaser girls also arrive consisting of leader Rizzo, Frenchie, Marty and Jan and we are introduced to everybody.

Michael:

Yeah, we are whichever I like. I like to read the opening the before the Greece. Cartoon you know, Greece. Yeah, we're that's a pretty cool cartoon. It is. Um, but I like the beginning. I don't know if you know what the movie From Here to Eternity. It had Frank Sinatra and some others in it. But they had that famous beach scene that you see sometimes where the waves are crashing up around them laying on the beach in the 1950s black and white movie. That's typically where you see that from? And this kind of had that vibe. Yeah, I had that pretty much like harken back to even before its time, but 20 years. Yeah, two different type of movies. So it was kind of cool. In my opinion. It's I thought so. Maybe you didn't I don't know. How do you like vibes? You like vibes? By biology? Yes. Okay. Okay. But what I don't like is that he's with her and they're like, obviously in love. And he's not being cool. Danny. Right. Like, he's not being a jerk, Danny. But she seems a prude.

Anthony:

He's being sappy bitch, boy, Danny.

Michael:

And she's still a prude. And it's like, Don't spoil it. And I'm like, Don't spoil it by what being passionate and in the moment, like, you're in that moment. You're, there's no, there's no prudence about it. It's, it's like that's, that's when you feel that moment. I guess she may be a little more calculating and what she does. She has no emotions towards him that way, it seems. But she tells me it's not very passionate.

Anthony:

She's being a virgin dude.

Michael:

What's that? I don't even look at life that way. Like, I mean, are you an emotional virgin, he just is rather

Anthony:

a virgin is what you used to be for a very, very, very, very long time.

Michael:

Whatever, whatever. But they they know I'm just saying that but she hasn't moved She's a teenager. She's not like a very young girl. She's probably she's What? 28? In the movie, really? So

Anthony:

basically, you're saying because she didn't give it up on the beach? What the hell is wrong with her?

Michael:

Well, I would say, I would say, you know, I'm saying that if she if she ever wanted an opportunity to have him the way she loves him, and and in a moment where it makes sense, and everything feels right, and the emotions are right, that would have been the time to do it.

Anthony:

Okay, what I'm saying is, you are a prime example of how too much porn can distort your sense of reality.

Michael:

And porn is not that loving and not that caring how that situation went down. That I mean, none of them are repairman. None of them. Were there to fix the cable, the washer or dryer. This is not that. This is Bert is a passionate moment and embrace and I, you know, I'm just saying she was a little prudish, in my opinion,

Anthony:

prudish, it's being brought up the right way. What's the right way, the right way is the complete opposite of one of the Fast and Furious girls while walking around that you love so much. But that wasn't where the horse was. tops.

Michael:

I don't know, I just think it was just them. I think that was the time where they could have had that moment. And it would have been fine. It would have been fine for you.

Anthony:

You want some copulation? I get it.

Michael:

I didn't need to see it. I just needed her to be a little more like, you know, now and here's the thing. I just want throw this out. I just wanna throw this out there. Let's say he on that beach. They do get it on, right. When they get back to school. And you know, and then they run into each other, which we're going to learn in the next section. I bet it's less important to him at that point, because he's already been there done that. And we wouldn't have to worry about this whole saga. Of course, that is the movie and I love the movies.

Anthony:

I would think you would make a very good rendition of Greece if you rewrote it. It would end in two minutes once Danny two minutes. Yeah, two minutes. Change the title from grease to lube.

Michael:

You know what it's called? in Mexico. American countries faster, leaner. Faster. Yeah. Okay. Change it to that, I guess. So, um, I guess move on. Okay. I love the cartoon, though. Do you like the cartoon? Do I do it? And that's one of the few big songs I can tolerate. So, there you go. I'm not a big big fan. One song.

Anthony:

I absolutely am not. But apparently john travolta is because it's got to be an office shit.

Michael:

Well, he was a Saturday Night Fever. It's like, Yeah, I know. You're in that you kind of have to be.

Anthony:

Um, do you think Saturday Night Fever? It's kind of like it's it's like it's almost like showgirls was a spin off of that. Agreed the angry dancing. Yeah, just without the nudity. Well, nudity. Yeah, john travolta mainly seeing him all greased up. Pat green.

Michael:

stayed alive had him more topless and with the red bandana and

Anthony:

oh, wait staying alive. Was that the one with the sweaty dancing that okay. Whichever one of them. And I'm the one who doesn't remember anything about the same goddamn movie. That's why

Michael:

I get it. I get it. No, no, I get to say the live was not as good. Not as popular. I'm not a big fan of the big that's all I'm saying. So you know, I'm so glad they don't make a lot of music.

Anthony:

I'm not a fan either.

Michael:

It's not because I don't want to be dead not making music. That's not cool, but I just want to hear the music.

Unknown:

I just don't. I started to choke the started the whole world laughing that's the one of their songs. I'm still not laughing.

Michael:

So here's my question to you. Why did we think the T birds were cool? And the pink ladies because I think they were self absorbed into their own personalities. And they really weren't that cool in the school.

Anthony:

They are the rig HMAS of say, Bob bell. What's rig? The rig? mmas You don't? Nevermind, I can't. I can't. I can't have a discussion with you. When Zack is trying to get into the rig mmas. And they have no jackets. Their fucking rig modes. They got the cool jacket, the jacket make them cool. You ain't cool unless you have T shirts jacket. Yeah. You ain't slutty unless you have pink ladies jacket.

Michael:

I guess so. I don't think they were as cool as we thought. I mean, I love that. I love you. Obviously, I love this movie, but, but I just think that when you look back, you're like, well, there's a lot of people who didn't like them to like, you know, look down on them and stuff.

Anthony:

This is the funny thing though. They're supposed to be the cool group or whatever. Yeah. The majority of them are fucking dorks and shit. Like the majority of them should be hanging out with Eugene. Yeah. So that's kind of what they were like duty. Yeah, since like, we're here like, john travolta is more like Anthony Michael Hall, King of the dipshits.

Michael:

Yeah, true. I mean, well, when you look at the second one, because we've already done that when it's the same and and they were even. But here's the thing with the second one, remember how the guy was doing Michael's doing their homework form? So they were even dumb. So this one, they're not as dumb. But they are like, cool. They're cool to themselves. That's I'm saying they're cool to them. So they're experts in our own world. That's my thought.

Anthony:

We don't we don't know that they're not dumb. School wise.

Michael:

We don't but we but but we're not told. So I can't I'm not gonna assume they are. Just like, I'm not gonna assume they're smart either. But we know that we don't know. And so my point is, in the second one, we learned that those guys are dumb. These guys will seem that way. That's why I'm saying they'll seem like they're there. Because he letters he obviously has to keep good grades to stay on track. And this one, so that's, that is true. So let's let's move on when we do the second one.

Anthony:

Yes, please.

Michael:

All right. After Sandy's parents decide not to return to Australia, probably because of some strange international incident. She enrolls at right out and befriends Frenchie who is planning to drop out of school to become a beautician. Unaware of each other's presence at rihel. Danny and Sandy recount the events of their brief romance to the respective groups without saying the others name singing summer nights. Sandy's version is more of the romance of the relationship while Danny's version is more of the embellishment on sexual exploits. Right? So there we go.

Anthony:

This, this whole song is that he said she said song.

Michael:

He said, she said, Yeah, there's a lot going on in this this. In this section,

Anthony:

especially with the song, pretty sure Sandy's version is the correct one.

Michael:

I would say. I would say yes, it's closer to the correct one. But I would say everything he's selling them is everything he tried. Like, you know, like you sell him. Yeah, I did this, but he did he try, but he didn't do it. Like, you know what I mean?

Anthony:

So it's everything he wanted to happen. He's just

Michael:

sending out it. She's lying to because she's not saying how often the guy she was with didn't sing about he wanted to do this, but I never did it.

Anthony:

Yeah, I don't think that happened. He was a gentleman the whole time until the very end the summer and he was like you wanted he was trying to get naked in the sand with Sandy, but didn't happen.

Michael:

And I think you know, I'll go back to that. I think the reason she didn't do is because she didn't get sand in her crack. That's awesome.

Anthony:

Cuz you know what? Yeah, I guess that's no bueno. no bueno. No. no bueno. sand in the crevasse is not good. I would imagine. I don't even like probably like coming home from the beach with sand on my feet.

Michael:

I know. I know. You saw you saw when I went to the beach with you recently, where I went over that thing at least washed my feet off, you know? Yeah. I had to do it. I can't imagine

Anthony:

getting sand in any areas like that.

Michael:

It's Yeah, you're a clean freak. I could totally see you.

Anthony:

I'm just talking about man. That's got to be like, painful, too.

Michael:

Yeah, yeah. So I'm saying that she she had good reasons if even if they were even if they weren't prude reasons. So there you go. Maybe she wasn't approved. I'll give you that. Maybe she just was afraid of sand problems. Alright, so I'm pretty cool. This school actually at the time is 1958 pretty progressive. I think having a female principal. What do you think?

Anthony:

Yeah. I agree.

Michael:

I'm yeah, that that that you wouldn't expect. Also, you talked earlier about Sandy's parents. Don't you think we needed more backstory on it? Do you think we needed it? Why? Like I want to know, I want to know what's the what is a change of plan that keeps you from flying halfway around the world to your real home?

Anthony:

Just to change plans? Well, what I want to know is how do you get enrolled in school that fucking quick? Because apparently was the very end of summer, how'd you get home? Because then she shows up, it's my first day you have to fill out these forms. So is she just like enrolling right now? Like, Hey, I'm gonna come to school here. What the hell? It's it's a process Now.

Michael:

Now. out is back then. It was not a proper

Anthony:

role. You got to go to the doctor get a physical they need your medical records. All that shit.

Michael:

Now they'll take you and put you in a class. I remember. man that's, that's when I went to Indiana. halfway through the year, it was like that, just boom in. It was crazy. And then they later on. Got all that other stuff. So yeah, it happens. It does. It just happens. All right, but now now it's like you gotta like You said you gotta go put a application in here and do this, which is funny. If your address is in the area, they have to let you go. I don't know what else they do anymore. It's like crazy. I remember we moved back I had to take a bunch of paperwork to thing and do the thing. So yeah, it's changed. It's changed. Now. When they're in the hallway, and the principal sees sunny out and classes are started, why does she only yell at him and ignore all the other guys are standing right beside him? Because he's the one mouthing off. I

Anthony:

think I'd take her crap. Taking crap from nobody.

Michael:

You think that's it? Just like I said, just because you Why? Well, if you just sat there and said nothing, she'd have been like, oh, who cares?

Anthony:

Nope, she's singling him out cuz he was talking shit.

Michael:

True. True. Man. Right. I'm gonna tell you right now. Am I? I don't know what I'm typing on some of these notes. Did you see that? My next one about Edison. I don't even know what my note says. But back then Edison was like the the go to nerd. He was like he was wargames and some other movies. Just as he was in Midnight Madness, which is

Anthony:

midnight mass and war games. Those are two of the big ones.

Michael:

Yeah. Do you like Midnight Madness?

Anthony:

Love it. We've had this discussion.

Michael:

We have Okay. Well, yeah. And that's where? That's right. We did because that's how we got into the the conversation about the guy who's who's in this movie. One of the dancers is a director that's direct is a pretty famous movies. And he was he was in Midnight Madness on the blue team with the with the guy with the van Andy Tennant was he was he was one of the guys with him. And he was also in this movie as a backup dancer. And if you know we did the movie Sweet Home Alabama, directed that, but he also did some other things. But I say hitch. fool's gold. What else did I say? was on there? bounty hunter. Yeah, so fools rush in. You'd like that one? Probably because it's a friend's person. Yeah. Was friends people that you like

Anthony:

Matthew Perry friends, Matthew Perry.

Michael:

And what's her name is pretty hot. Some of that is I've watched that. But there's a lot of people who don't like that movie. Now. They feel that it has some racist tropes in it. So I need to go back and watch it and see if I watch it and go Oh, yeah. You know, like, yeah, back then we didn't see some of those things. Because we were blind to some of our injustices.

Anthony:

Yes.

Michael:

Oh, do they do just do they do Homeroom Announcements anymore in schools? I don't even know.

Anthony:

I haven't been like, yeah, you know, I do. Because when I pick up my son from kindergarten that you can hear the announcements from the outside. So they can't do them at pickups. I'm assuming they do them in the morning. Yes.

Michael:

Okay. So yeah, so yeah, so during that that's what he talks about the TV, they're going to be on TV.

Anthony:

American fans things he

Michael:

wants him to be like, wholesome and clean cut. And she knows that that's just not not what's gonna happen. This is her school. This is right. Well, this is some private zones. Yep. She knows she knows who Danny Zuko is cool.

Anthony:

is like in the other district. Yeah, they did. Now this is this school is more lean on me than Bayside.

Michael:

Yeah, yeah. Um, I want to right before summer loving a, Frenchie. I just wanna say Frenchie new had to know that Sandy wouldn't fit in with the pink lace because right before summer lemons starts, you know, Patty Simcox comes up and talks to Sandy and says, Hey, why don't you come try out for the cheerleaders and everything. And she's going to do that. And that's not a Pink Lady thing, right? So at this point, Frenchy is just not being a very good friend to me, knowing that these are not her people. These just aren't. It'd be better if she kept her as a friend, but not with this group.

Anthony:

She's trying to introduce her to people. She's brand new friend. She's being a good friend. You say so? Yes, I think Mitch,

Michael:

well, she always seems to be

Anthony:

so yeah, you can't I mean, that's, that's not on Frenchy Frenchy is trying to integrate her. Yeah. Rizzoli, a jealous bitch.

Michael:

Yes, she is. And one of the things I'll talk about here in a moment, but but right before now, on the other end of the spectrum, right before john travolta starts singing Patsy is looking at girls dresses. That's, that's just yeah, I mean, I don't even know what to say. Even though it's, I mean, I get it. dude's did do that. But yeah, I don't think they put that in a movie now. Like they let him get away with it. Well, now people do anymore. Well, yeah, I mean, where else would you do that in cameras and

Anthony:

Are they really? Oh, people do that? Yeah. You don't ever hear about that people getting busted for that?

Michael:

I mean, but what are they doing? How are they putting a hidden camera somewhere in Walmart? That seems hard.

Anthony:

I don't know if they're discreetly holding it down. But I think people will try like they have, like something on their shoe or something. But yes,

Michael:

I don't want to give anybody any ideas, but you know that you can buy a magnetic camera that's really small. And you can control it with your phone through Wi Fi. Because your it can connect to the Wi Fi on your phone, you can be two or three aisles over control that camera, dude,

Anthony:

I mean, let's not give ideas, just saying what I mean by other bad criminals. I mean, another fucking episode, we have to put a disclaimer on the beginning of

Michael:

Yeah, here's the thing. I obviously I'm not doing those things, because I have smart people who know how to get things done. Don't have time for bullshit. And that's what that is. Now, time for illegal activities. We'll just put you in prison. If you can't, then I wouldn't be able to do this podcast and how fun would that be? But I think you'd be happy. But so now. But that brings us to probably I don't know, it's just the most famous number. Other than the last song, I got chills, you know? Right. Is this the famous most famous one? I think it is. Somebody used to know everywhere.

Anthony:

Yeah, it is because they used to play it at the fucking bar.

Michael:

Well, and it hits our generation, right? Yeah, our generation knows Greece seems like everybody somewhere about around our age anywhere. 40 and up, all grew up on this. And so like, you play these songs, we know them and we'll sing them. That's just how it is. It's it's a great tune. But there are some issues in 2021 with it right? Some of the dance moves are kind of weird and the hip thrusting Danny should never do the funky chicken because that's what he does. And that would you when he's walking down the Tell me more. Tell me more. He does the fucking funky chicken. Did she put up a fight? You know? That those words? Yeah. Did she put up a fight? Oh, you mean? Did she say no. Clearly, and you said Well, I gotta fight through this. Yeah.

Anthony:

Wow, they did that song he changed it to Did she give you consent? Did she give you consent? Fuck Yeah, man.

Michael:

Fuck yeah. Here's my thing. Rizzo laying down on the bench and then kicking Patty into Sandy was a bit violent. Did you notice that? I never really noticed that before. Yeah, I did. Yeah, um, and like you said, I have on here my notes. He says basically that they fucked. And he describes a loving a loving story. But it all had a glorious ending. You know? I liked it. I could. I could. I can sing that song. But I'm not gonna do it right now. Because I know you'll be annoyed. I'll be hanging out. Or we could do it as a duet. I could sing some love and have me a blast. And then you're seeing the other Sam happen so fast. You know you're supposed to continue. Not gonna hit a girl. Crazy for me. Come on. You know it.

Anthony:

Thank you everyone for listening to today's episode.

Unknown:

Man. Oh, boy. All right. It's good be okay. Come on, man. Good, Fun. Fun.

Anthony:

Let's continue. Okay, go ahead says read the next thing. Go ahead. Okay, so, after the song, Sandy finally mentions Danny's name to them. So Rizzo decides to arrange a surprise reunion for them at the football game or at the pep rally. But Danny maintains his bad boy attitude in front of his friends. When he finally sees Sandy. She storms off in tears. Frenchie invites the girls to a jammy jam party with Sandy falls ill from the sight of blood and after little champagne, and trying to smoke and while Sandy is out of the room, Rizzo starts to make fun of her saying Look at me. I'm Sandra D. Sandy goes outside starts to think of Danny and doing her own hopelessly devoted to you. T burns come to French's house. So Danny can apologize to Sandy. But he leaves after they taught him about her. Rizzo departs with Kentucky to go make some boomboom in the backseat without a condom because it broke while he tried to open it because he had it since the seventh grade they're disturbed by Leo leader of the T birds rival game the scorpions with the worst fucking acne you've ever seen. And his girlfriend Chacha

Michael:

Oh man. Yeah. And I just want to say when when Rizzo hears that the girl the guy she's describing is Danny it to her it's like red meat. It's like Oh, I can't wait to fuck you over like you know that's that's what she got. Oh ever face. Just be This yeah contrivance it's like crazy. Yeah. It's it's like come on man. But this is where this is where Frenchie is not a good friend and you have to believe me. Sandy shaker said, You, she could have gone to Sandy after all the other big ladies walked off and said, Hey, we actually know Danny and the person you're describing is not him. To the person. We know she could have said that. Oh, and and so we just want to warn you that he may where you saw him. He may not be that way here. She could have been a great friend and told her that but she didn't see is not a good friend. That's I'm saying she's a ship friend. She is with her on purpose.

Anthony:

She is under Reserve's control. She do. She does what she's told. That's why

Michael:

I disagree. You know, hey, what's that from? Don't do anything till I say what's it for African descent? You know, do you say Oh, Pulp Fiction? When when the wolf is like, Don't you think it's uh, you say? So you say shit. She's the wolf. That's she's the wall but but I don't think so. I think Frenchie is just sadistic because she's, she brings her with friends that obviously she doesn't align with with the way she is as a person. Then when she hears this, she's like, she could have told her this and then later on with the ear piercing thing. She didn't want that she still does it. I'm just saying Frenchy is kind of statistic that's all said she had every opportunity to notice and be cool unless she's that clueless as to what's going on around her.

Anthony:

So you're saying all I can think so you're saying Frenchy is just kind of a friend but not really. So she's kind of just a friend. She said where you're saying

Michael:

the friends more like, probably more like a frenemy, that she just thought was

Anthony:

an enemy. friend. She

Michael:

just Frenchie, kind of Frenchie. Yes, I guess if you want shippon I Can you maybe that's why they gave

Anthony:

her that name. Maybe that really was a ship on

Michael:

a wedding. It was it was a ship pun. And it's from the original screen from the original. Because this was originally a musical play on Broadway. Yes. So yeah. So that's where that name comes from originally. But

Anthony:

no, it comes from being able to French inhale.

Michael:

Oh, well. Yeah, I'm talking about like, yeah, I'm saying that. A writer on the original play made it but yes, she explains how I got my name Frenchie. Right. Alright, so fucking All right. All right. Fuck you. But you, but she's a bad friend. That's you. You agree that she's a bad friend, right?

Anthony:

No, I don't. But I'm just gonna let you talk about your stupid.

Michael:

What you're telling me? If so, like, if I knew something about someone you know, that would make you think differently about them, and could warn you emotionally for how you might have to receive them. If I don't tell you that, but I'm close to you. What would you think that's an ass move of me not to tell you that.

Anthony:

Here's the deal. Sometimes you got to let people figure things out on their own. It's part of growing up.

Michael:

The guy cut the guy we have there's a guy code and you know it. I have to tell you.

Anthony:

Well, there's not a girl code apparently,

Michael:

obviously. But there's a guy code I would tell you, because I have to, you know, just I just have to. Okay, just have to,

Anthony:

well, if we ever get in that situation. Okay. We'll see.

Michael:

All right, so we're getting I want to get to this pep rally because there's a few things going on this pep rally one. There's some violent imagery of a player hanging from a noose burning an effigy. I don't know if that would happen. At a pep rally, I don't even know. And then you know, the guy the coach ripping and slaughtering and all that shit. Like, the, I guess our pep rallies now, they just wouldn't do that because they wouldn't want to put violent imagery in their heads. I'm just Is that what you think?

Anthony:

Oh, I guess it's I think it's it's more locker room talk now. That's more of the motivational speech in the locker room? Not to the whole school.

Michael:

Yeah, I don't I don't see them going. We're gonna Berta we're gonna, you know, I know. Our I would say that even the pep rallies I went to in the early 90s. And, and whatnot, were a little more colorful than they would be now. Like, you know, the UN how, you know, they would say we're gonna kill those guys, you know, and they don't really mean that. But you know, you say that, right? So that's why I think just now just how we kick love it. I just don't see this ever happening again.

Anthony:

Heads often stop on their dicks.

Michael:

If someone burned up another team's player in effigy or with a noose around his neck. It would, it would be viral, and they would probably be in a bad way. So what I do know now, but you're right. This is the Worst fucking team ever. Yes. I mean, why they're so bad they have a seven seasons slump and that's why I have the question. Why does anybody go to their pep rallies? If they're this fucking bat?

Anthony:

It's something to do. Really? That's your answer. Something to do.

Michael:

Yeah, I was thinking you know? Yeah, I think maybe it's just I said maybe it's just a cool cuz you know, those people obviously aren't in the sports for the most part. The only one who ends up actually doing anything with sports is Danny. Yes. But he's the coolest one of them all. So you know,

Unknown:

and he even but yeah, they don't. He didn't know the rules. It doesn't mean he sucks. It just means just know the rules. While

Michael:

I was thinking I have it on here, maybe they keep losing because they have bonfires on their field and parked cars and crowds on it, you know, could be thought

Anthony:

does tear up maybe?

Michael:

Yeah, so when so finally, we get to Danny, Sandy reunion. And like I said, Frenchy could have been a good friend, but she's not. She's more like I have it on here. A Trojan horse cheese, you know, acting like a good friend, but then gonna fuck her world up. And we do get Danny's genuine reaction initially, right? Yeah. Then he switches into Oh, hey.

Anthony:

Rock and Roll and whatnot.

Michael:

Oh, and after that, and I have it in here. He gave Rizzo a look. That was like it was gonna burn her. Like Kiwi. If he had lasers in his eyes, she'd have been dead. And, and here's why. And here's another reason Frenchy so fucked up. Because right after that he will reserve the look in Frenchie consoles her for something she could have helped her avoid.

Anthony:

You got to get over this.

Michael:

Damn, I'm just saying Frenchie. I didn't realize how much she fucked her over in this. She did. She did. Don't Don't be mad at me. I love this movie. I'm telling you. I love this movie. I just I never realized that. How bad she of a friend she was until this. So okay, I never thought of it. I always looked at it at face value. Maybe the way you do. I didn't look deeper to the relationship ago. Wow. That's fucked up. What adds? fucked up. So

Anthony:

you don't know. Hey, maybe friend. She didn't know how Danny would react. Maybe she just maybe she thought he was a good? I don't know, man. Maybe friends. She doesn't know Danny as well as you think she does?

Michael:

Is she the one who says the only man a girl can depend on is her daddy. Yes, she is. Okay. And this exact phrase is why I asked everyone I sleep with Who's your daddy? Okay, let's go.

Anthony:

Wow. Sorry. That's bad. I know. I think you when you say every one. Meaning one. You mean to one? Yeah. Yeah, you're right. Change everyone to one ever. There we go.

Michael:

Whatever. And I'm not with the math. So there you go. Ah, yeah. And then and then you know, the console or take her on a pajama party. Right? The the exact thing she needs is to spend the night with the exact people who fucked her over by doing that to her, instead of warning her. Yeah, that's, that's what I want. I want to spend the night with people who didn't tell me what to expect after I told them my summer, and then say, hey, that's not the guy. We know. They could have said it. Any one of them could have said no, that's that's exactly why I who I don't want to spend my night with. So I'm gonna say all right, get over it.

Anthony:

Let's move on.

Michael:

So, you know, at the party, there's a lot of peer pressure. Yeah, big time. You know, they net Now. Now. I don't think it's smoking cigarettes. I think now it would be like smoking pot. Maybe doing vaping Yeah, but, but they're definitely doing a little bit of that

Anthony:

cigarettes. dessert wine.

Michael:

dessert wine and, and writing letters to G eyes that Marty wants to see. Yeah. So don't forget it. And that Yeah, cuz you gotta smell nice. And that's when we get the great one of the great songs. Look at me. I'm Sandra D. lousy with virginity. Yeah, I did look up one thing in there. That's a good song. I enjoy it. It's not bad. It's kind of a diss on Saturday. You know making fun of her for being the way she is. Yeah, but I looked it up you know when they say a few names. I was like who is that Troy Donahue? Never heard of them. Even back then. He was a sex symbol. From the 50s and 60s, ended up like hooked on cocaine and alcohol and it really had a tragic ending to his career. Just thought I end up being penniless.

Anthony:

He's not the only one. That's got a.

Michael:

It's got to suck, though that you're so famous. You're in a song that's in a movie that made 1.5 billion. And you had a tragic ending. It just I think he tried to make a comeback at some

Anthony:

movie. You were just mentioned in the movie.

Michael:

Yeah, but you were so famous that you know, that was something that they would mention. That to me is important.

Anthony:

Okay, so maybe that gives that gives a little extra that line then. Thank you, Troy. Donahue. I know what you want to do. Yeah, lots of bad. Bad shit.

Michael:

Now, when the T bird show up, that's interesting. What's up Kentucky? You know, just that whole whole arrangement? I mean, Danny was kind of a dick when he but did again. I think he was that way because I have original dream sloppy seconds aren't my style, that type of thing. Yeah, I mean, he can't be that kind of guy

Anthony:

does make you wonder how many Eskimo brothers there are at ryedale that Reza was responsible for?

Michael:

Well, that right there shows you that those guys are Eskimo brothers. Because I think he's because they've worked together before based on what we heard. Right? Yeah, they were an item. And that's why Rizzo is kind of being mean to him. Because

Anthony:

brooding little bit. Yeah. So yeah, so

Michael:

let me see. I have one here that, you know, the thing with sandry is that she's in love with the other Danny. Yeah. You know, not the Danny that's there. And, and I think that's the theme of this movie. That's kind of weird that she's always having to she's gonna have to end up changing to be someone that he loves. I just find that weird. Yeah. So no,

Anthony:

I don't I mean, now, it's not a good message, is it?

Michael:

No, it's not. So. I love this movie. Just white people. I love this movie. No matter how much I pull out the kids that are bad. There is a but there's nothing sexy about Rizzo and Kentucky parking. At the at the lookout. There's just nothing. Not that, you know. I mean, like, I'd have to say that. I don't think there's any given.

Anthony:

I don't think there's ever anything truly, quote unquote sexy about high school sex in a car. No.

Michael:

No, there's not. You know? What, what's another movie that famously does that

Anthony:

Titanic? They're not high school. But it doesn't it doesn't look like that. True. It doesn't work. Like it doesn't. That's all.

Michael:

I was gonna say. Say anything was anything to Yes. Yeah, I think that one's a little more in my mind than Titanic cuz I open like dynamic

Anthony:

sex in a car doesn't look like that doesn't work like that.

Michael:

No, it doesn't. It's I've seen Pornhub that's not

Anthony:

somebody who's gonna pull something or cramp? More than one.

Michael:

Oh, no cars back then we're a lot bigger in the back. Not now the cars are smaller. You know, they could they've made it more efficient.

Anthony:

Yeah, you're better off you feel like you're better off getting out and doing it. On the car. We're up against it.

Michael:

Yeah, yeah, there you go. I like the RZA says, call me by my first name, Betty. I know. That's crazy. I never thought I never remembered that there was actually Betty, Betty nugs. Here's my thing. Um, so when they're in there, and he has, he says, oh, I've got my 25 cent insurance policy. And he says he's had since the seventh grade. Yeah. He obviously has never been laid, though. Or he has been ragging it the whole time.

Anthony:

Yes. I'm going to assume never. That was his first time. I'm gonna guess.

Michael:

Do you think that was that was? Yes. Okay, cuz I'm like thinking man, as cool as these guys are. They have to be like, he's like, 30

Anthony:

they're not cool. You don't remember. So did you have your experience as a kid? Getting condoms from the condom machine?

Michael:

I never did it that way. I always just wondering I went and bought a jet pack or something.

Anthony:

Well see, this is like when I was like, and obviously we weren't using them. But it was just like cool to get one because we found out that there was a cotton machine and the gas station near where I lived. We were like sneaking into get them. Right. Because we're scared. We're gonna get caught. Yeah, going into the gas station and try to get condoms out of the vending machine. Yeah, that's what we would do. We're like all is cool and get it and then I remember the vending machine. It was one of those had like condoms. But then like a couple other weird things in it. I can't remember if like, Death Row pictures or something. You should have got that? I think I did once.

Michael:

Well, you need to find that we did that when you put that on the thing. Yeah. on the blog or blog.

Anthony:

Yeah, I remember that back in the day.

Michael:

Yeah, there you go. I do remember the machines where you go in and they would have a few different options. I never really looked. Yeah, you had to have to, because you had

Anthony:

to have one person be the lookout. But why would it be it's not illegal for you to buy a condom. It wasn't mature. You know, this is like, I mean, I'm talking like, seventh grade or something. Literally seventh grade. I think. Just like, yeah, you just feel like you're gonna get in trouble or something.

Unknown:

Because your kid trying to get counted. I understand. Cuz you like something that you shouldn't be getting. But here's what I'll tell you.

Anthony:

Lord knows I didn't need you.

Michael:

I'll give you 75 cents for the whole car, including. That's so mean. That's so mean. But you know, it just shows how mean that guy was and why they get that rivalry kicking up later. So, is it my turn or is it your I think it's your turn or it's mine? Yeah,

Anthony:

it's my turn. Alright, so next. This point kenickie unveils a used car, greased lightning, which he plans to restore for a drag race with the scorpions and the teebird Singh greased lightning. Sandy begins dating Tom a jock and Danny turns to coach Calhoun to get into sports to impress her, eventually becoming a runner, long distance running cross country running. You reunite with Sandy and they attempt to go on a date with their friends crash it. And can Nikki and Rizzo argue and split up Rizzo throws a milkshake on space. Left alone after this. Frenchie is visited by a guardian angel who advises her to return to write Dell, after a mishap in beauty class leaves her with candy pink hair, beauty school dropout, which Funny enough, that's how a lot of people wear their hair now, and it's cool.

Michael:

Yeah, that's a Yeah. What is old is new again. That's what I always say with these types of trends. What was old is new again. Yeah, it's I don't know why but the pink hair is not bad. People would wear that Now. Now. She would be like, you pass. You know how to make hair that people want to pay for. There you go. Ah, I would have to say before we get into that, though, greased lightning. Yeah. Um, that that song? I did not realize back then was the dirtiest song ever heard in my life?

Anthony:

I know you didn't because all you hear is the chorus. Yeah, pay attention that shit.

Michael:

Yeah, dual overhead lifters and dual bear quads. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Dual injection cut offs for speed song. Yeah. I didn't hear that. I won't be bragging. It's a real pissy wagon. I didn't hear give a shit and getting lots of tips. For some reason. I did not hear that. Until I was in high school. The chicks? I couldn't hear those words. The chicks will cream. Yeah, grease like, I mean that I did not hear that I just did. It was a blind spot for me until then. pretty dirty word. But you gotta think when we were younger, we didn't have Google or things to look at ways to look things up. So maybe it was easier to not know it and then learn it when it was time. Right? Yeah. So and now though, if you were a kid, and you got that song, you look it up and find out Oh, what's chip creaming me. Let's, uh, a braggin pussy wagon. What's that? You know, that's let's say now. It would be a different world. Somebody turn off the Google.

Anthony:

I actually I do believe as a kid seeing this. I think I used to think he said the chicks will scream.

Michael:

Yeah, I think that's probably what I thought too. That's how I heard it. But. And I don't know if maybe when I was a kid when I heard pussy wagon. I thought cat you know, cap.

Anthony:

That wagon you polecats in?

Michael:

I don't know. But shouldn't it? I don't know. I don't think I just don't even think I heard that. Yeah, I don't think so. You know? I just don't even think I heard that. Right. But I will say this during that song. john travolta must like to shake his ass. He does. He shakes it all the time. He saw that he just shaking that ass dancing machine. Yeah, yeah, he's a dancer machine may just fucking does it. And like I said, he does some gestures that are priceless. You know, he does the watch. I'll tell you. That's a fact. I found the saran wrap. That you know, I'm talking about Yeah. That he was carrying around the thing. Let me see. The Clean wrap that Danny waves around and throws around the car and the number. It was a symbol for prophylactics that men in the 1950s used to use They would wrap themselves in saran wrap or cellphone before cellophane before sex. This was an effective prophylactic. It wasn't. john travolta was told not to do anything sexual with the cellophane and the number by director Ronald Kaiser and the producers. They wanted the symbolism to be subtle with that saran wrap to avoid an R rating. But Travolta disobeyed this and rub it on his crotch rub on his crotch with the clean wrap in the number anyway. And this made it into the final cut of the movie. So there you go. Oh, for the shit. They

Anthony:

were saying in the song. What's the big deal? Yeah, I

Michael:

know. That's maybe because I thought it would be imagery is different than words. There must be a way the rating system works with imagery that we're not aware of. So yeah, maybe

Anthony:

reviewing it didn't know what the hell the saran wrap anyways.

Michael:

Yeah, well, that's the thing. I never knew until I read that fact today that that's what that was. However, I knew that they did that back in the 50s. I did not know that was in here. Because of that. I only knew about it from the movie, booty call. Do you know what do you want to know when I learned about cellophane and saran wrap? Interesting story. I was in the army briefly before a medical discharge. And when we went into basic training the guy the first day we're in class, he says, Hey, when you get off base here, if you ever get off base, there are girls who will target you with sexual diseases because you're in the military. So you gotta be you know, on your game, always just prophylactics if you don't have one, you saran wrap? test what he said? And I'm like, What the fuck? And we know it isn't useful. But he's using it as a as a disease deterrent not as a thing. So maybe it does work for that. I don't know. But you know, pregnancy. I mean, swimmers probably can get through there as I'm thinking.

Anthony:

Probably.

Michael:

So you didn't know that. But that was back in 93. So maybe they've now gone the that kind of guy. I would trust school thinking is gone.

Anthony:

I would trust aluminum foil better, I think hurt someone. You know.

Michael:

I like to I like this. I like the feel of cold aluminum against it. Oh,

Anthony:

good for your pleasure. Oh, yeah, it would be rigid once you get the crinkle once you wrap it and get the crinkles in it. Yep, sometimes. Yeah.

Michael:

All these I love all these tough dudes though. dancing around the car. Yeah. Which is ultimately the ugliest car. You can see my opinion. Yeah, it's not I was not a good looking car. It looked like on wheels when you were a kid. It's greased lightning. But that was the fantasy car. Right? Like, that wasn't what we really got later on. We saw the real car. So but the fan that was the fantasy? fantasy car just wasn't that cool. I thought it was cool, though. We, you know not fucking cool at all.

Anthony:

Wait, cuz then. Isn't that what he's driving at the end?

Michael:

I don't know if that is what he's driving. It looked like it. I don't remember specifically. I just know that it had a clear hood and they were flying. So there you go.

Anthony:

That was that car. Okay. And if the car

Michael:

seat and that's obviously we'll get to that. But that's obviously a fantasy ending. So that fantasy card could be in that fantasy. So there we go.

Anthony:

I think that really happened. Okay. Are you smoking the weed? No. I've done to a fucking Fast and Furious movies with you where I believe it. That's not believable.

Michael:

He does not Catcher in a mid air collision and land on a car. I promise.

Anthony:

No, he doesn't. Fucking drives into the air. Who are you talking about? Are we talking about Dom? Are we talking about john travolta? Dom? Okay. I can't even keep the shit straight anymore.

Michael:

So let's Okay, let's move on. So the fantasy cards I believe we get that but but do you want to hang out at the frosty palace?

Anthony:

Hell yeah. It's like the max. It's like the coffee shop and friends. Central perk. It's one of those Hangouts. That's iconic.

Michael:

Yeah, yeah. It's where you know, my wife. My wife pointed out we've watched it with her recently for this. She pointed out she didn't she never noticed that Obama was playing in the background.

Anthony:

Oh, really?

Michael:

Yeah. I never noticed that either. I never thought about it. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I like how his friends tell him that chicks are only good for one thing. And it's why and once a day for 15 minutes or something like that. It says, What do you like to do with them for

Anthony:

the other 23 hours and 45 minutes?

Michael:

Yeah, so once that's done today, so obviously 15 minutes. So I'm like, I'm like thinking these are supposed to be high school as you recharge pretty fast. I think he could at least give a couple more 15 minute performances. Well, they're

Anthony:

high. They're high schoolers. It didn't take him. 15 minutes. No. Five minutes. I'm ready. I think you're over exaggerating a little bit. Yeah, yeah, I think they were. Well, maybe maybe they met 15 minutes three times five minutes each in a day. How about that?

Michael:

That's a at that point. So reasonable. Okay, I get it. breakfast lunch

Anthony:

dinner. Either way, though, for Who said that? Was it? duty? said that duty. Yeah. That's a fucking quick math by him.

Michael:

Yeah, well, like we said, these guys I told you they're not as dumb as the ones in the second one. They're not as dumb because they can also work on their cars to make their cars where those other guys have motorcycles a little easier to work on than a car. I'm just saying. It's different, different. Of course their Nemesis is the same, but whatever. Sandy is a gold digger because she needs money for the jukebox. She, you know, she's a gold digger. That just proved it to me that she is

Anthony:

really, you know, she's just this. Yeah, yeah. He's the guy taking her on a date. He suppose pay for the jukebox? That's not a fucking gold digger.

Michael:

On what she can't afford a fucking song. Jeez,

Anthony:

not saying she can't but don't shut up. Danny made of money. Come on, man. It's not Danny. Oh, that's right. No, she's on her date.

Michael:

But yes, she's with Lorenzo Lamas. That's right. So yeah, that fucker. So yeah, but yeah, but she's still a gold digger. She's Oh my god. Wow. Shut up saying. Now here's my question. Patty's is Patty Simcox into Danny. Does she like bad boys? Because she comes up to Danny and yeah, she's

Anthony:

probably in the dance to be interested in. Well, she's. He's the most popular guy in school.

Michael:

I don't know that. He is.

Anthony:

I do. He is.

Michael:

He might be but his the rest of his group isn't. That's the thing. Yeah, he said that. Okay. Um, Sandy asked Sam, what have you ever done? And I think that made him that is what made him go. Oh, I don't do shit. I'm actually quite worthless. Do you think so? Well, he's

Anthony:

there to change. What do you mean, when he talks to the coach? Well, that's why I'm here. You know, to change. No, I mean, your clothes.

Michael:

Oh, yeah. Okay. Oh, well, well, you know, I thought you meant like, in the movie, like, he's the guy who's supposed to change in the fucking movie, Mike. Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah. But now he just sits around looking cool all the time. At least you got him to look for a sport. Because, you know, really? He doesn't do anything and makes me wonder what the rest of them do with all their time. Is it just working on that fucking car? That and hanging out at the malt shop? Yeah. So when he goes and looks for a sport, do you like all of his sports mishaps? Like all the shit that he does?

Anthony:

Yes. That's some good stuff right there.

Michael:

I my one of my favorites. I mean, he does. He punches the basketball player which is obviously over the line, but, but I really like it when he does the wrestling thing where like, kind of walks around cool. And then just all of a sudden just get down there. Like Yeah, it's like awkward.

Anthony:

Know, he punches the wrestler. Remember? That's who he punches.

Michael:

Well, he does that too. he punches the basketball player. He he does the thing too. But

Anthony:

basketball sir. He does. I love the basketball where he just starts taking the ball. I'm holding this up and everybody.

Michael:

Yeah, so let's say he does that in the wrestler. He uses two hands and like fucking has to cuz that guy's a beast. There's no way he should been wrestling that guy. That guy's like eight times as a weight class. It seems. You look at that guy. He's like, he's like, he's like the rock facing you. That's

Anthony:

fair. Pretty much.

Michael:

I mean, you have no fighting chance. You're kind of a puss Oh, fuck you. Baseball. All right, next

Anthony:

time I see you we're playing basketball and I'm playing Danny's way

Michael:

No I'll play I'll play horse or something but but but baseball he he pulls his hat way too far down that's my that's that always bothered me when I saw that scene. Like how the fuck he's supposed to hit when he has to look down his nose to try to look cool below is that

Anthony:

that's all he cares about. Cool. That's why he's got a fucking Coleman his shorts playing basketball.

Michael:

Cool, man. But I like finally we get the right fit though. Right? Like he says you know what? We're gonna run and that's perfect for him because there's no contact you just put on some shoes and some shorts. And you go put that back down. back down. I wish we could have seen him in action. You know like, and not just the action that we do get where he falls right yeah. And she comes over. But But act I'd like to see him action. See at a meet and see how that looked. You know that have been interesting.

Anthony:

That's been good he lettered in it.

Michael:

Well, yeah, I mean, or they were member This is a shitty school in sports so yeah. doesn't mean you're good. You could have just been competing.

Anthony:

It's a participation letter in track.

Michael:

Yeah, all of their letters, I'm sure on their varsity football team our participation letters, by like, how he's showing off though. That's how he falls. And then she comes over and he gets this little date again. You know, that's guys you know, and then when they go out, Danny just can't get rid of those idiots. The morons, the his friends. I mean, I guess they know what the thing is. He did tell her I don't want to go here. You know, because you don't want to be bothered and she insisted, right? Cuz she was gonna hate that

Anthony:

be a gold digger for jukebox money. Yeah, apparently.

Michael:

Yep. Because she's a fucking gold digger. Anyways, so read on all them show, you know, when they show Rizzo has the hickeys and connected goes to when you care enough to send the very best. Yes, I got a fact about that.

Anthony:

It's like a Hallmark card.

Michael:

That's right. Give me a moment. I got I got a fact about that. up in here. Where's the okay. The hickeys on rizos neck. In the diner scene were authentic. given to Stockard Channing by Jeff Conway, who played Kentucky. Okay, so there you go.

Anthony:

Now just a word authentic. Were they making out? Or was this just prepping? For the same

Michael:

thing? It was very method very method and preppy. But do you? Um, do you think it was kind of low key like bigoted of Reza when she said the kangaroo bop remarks?

Anthony:

Yeah, maybe?

Michael:

Like, like, cuz that's kind of like, that'd be like, you know, I don't know, if she were using like, if it were if they were Asian? Would she use a different slur? Yeah, I could see her doing that using a different type of slur cuz she just a bit. I mean, there's a lot of people who love this character growing up who identify with it. But if they really look deep into her, she's very mean. Very mean, very. And I feel bad. I mean, I don't want to take someone's memory and shit on it. But, man, that that's a rough character to go by. I mean, you can like the good parts of her or the parts that you see are struggles that maybe you identify with. But you got to understand there's more often than just the, you know, the outsider or the person who's seen differently and you know, I get that I get why some people identify with her but, but there you got to separate that from some of the remarks that she says because she's not great.

Anthony:

No, not very nice. I agree. But again, you from me, you fucking hate Frenchie, so whatever. Well, and you know why? Yeah.

Michael:

But to you for me, Pinky Lee. Pinky Lee refers to a comedian, like actor. Clown guy. So just I let you know the clown guy. And like he did. He did. He would like be on like, late night talk shows and stuff. That's what he did. So yeah, just because there's you know, sometimes you hear these remarks, and he's this movie and you're like, Who are they? That's why I looked up Troy Donahue and stuff. Yeah. Because I thought oh, yeah, that's interesting. So sorry, I thought maybe like that. Thanks. And here's my thing. With you, you're welcome. Did you want to know all that stuff? No. But okay. Fucking so how close to closing was this place? Yeah. A moment later. Everyone's fucking gone. Oh, gosh. And then then we get what I think is most regrettable scene in the movie.

Anthony:

Hold on before we get to that, here's the other thing. I know. I know. It's just because for the movie sake, you know, they just do it. But it's like if you're closing that fucking quick. How does Danny and Sandy even get to order their burgers kitchen should be closing down. And then everybody fucking bolted out leaves all this food on the table. didn't even get eat all of it. Nobody got their Eskimo pie. What the hell

Michael:

no. And wasted their money on the jukebox off.

Anthony:

Wait a second to by the way. Everybody's making Frenchie. pony up money. So don't tell me that. Sandy is a gold digger. Fucking t birds are gold diggers. They're making you pay for shit because she's got a fucking job. Now you of course you don't agree because you're stupid. She's got a job. Now they're making her pay for shit. That's gold digging.

Michael:

Then he had his own money in that scenario, though.

Anthony:

Yeah, but I'm not talking about DNA. I'm saying the other t birds. So I don't get my allowance to

Michael:

T birds are mooches

Anthony:

that's so why is it? Why is it? She's a gold digger but they're mooches What the hell?

Michael:

They're mooches because they're not because they're not they don't have any romantic prospects with Frenchy

Anthony:

bloody hell. She didn't have any with Tom either.

Michael:

He had romantic whatever. Well, well, Santa He has more romantic prospects with the people he was there with

Anthony:

no being a gold digger. Gold Digger is not about romantic prospects though. That's why it's gold gazing

Michael:

at all using that as a tool to get the money is and that's what I'm saying. Fuck off, man. It's mooching. Let's talk.

Anthony:

Let's talk about your big regret here,

Michael:

though. Yeah, the beauty school dropout song I take that was not great. I'm not a fan of I know Frankie Valli my we watched. We watched the Jersey Boys Broadway show on a cruise that we went on. And it was great and my daughter fell in love with Frankie Valli and the four seasons and listens to them and this is him Frankie Valli in this movie. But this song is not great. The only part of it is the last line, or are you you're become a hooker or something. I like that line. pretty well. Now, it could have been better,

Anthony:

unless you do you know, no customer would go down unless she was a hooker.

Michael:

Yeah, unless she was a hooker. This could have been epic, though. Because someone was offered the part that is 10 times more famous. And that was Elvis Presley. He was offered the role and turn it down. Can you believe that? Yes. Um, yeah. So yeah, it was. It was amazing. And here's the thing. There's another fact in this that I'll go over since we're talking about Elvis, he was offered the role of teenagers will be turned down. So another Elvis connection in this was Look at me. I'm saying Audrey. It had had a reference to actually Salma Nao, instead of Alice, you know, when she says Elvis, Elvis gets your power away from me, you know? Yeah. But he was murdered in 1976. So the reference was changed to Elvis for the film. Elvis died on August 16 1977, the same day, that scene was filmed. So here's a thing to think about. Had he accepted a role in this movie? Maybe he would have been on set and not died?

Anthony:

Or maybe he would have died on that. What about that? Then Greece is a haunted?

Michael:

No Did it then instead of 1.5 billion? It does 3 billion. You know this? If he had done this movie, and it came out posthumously. Holy shit. Holy shit. Yeah. Are you ready for the next thing? I'm sure I'm right. I'm reading this right. Yeah.

Anthony:

I don't fucking know. Yeah, you are cuz I said so. Okay, well, you gotta remember man. I did. You're not just here to listen to me talk. Okay. Right now. Because I have to read this. Nobody is here to listen to you talk.

Michael:

All right, the school dance arrives broadcast live on television and hosted by Fitz Fontaine, who flirts with an underage Marty Rizzo and can Nikki attempt to spite one another by bringing Leo that gang leader and cha cha as their first date. Danny and Sandy go together and dance well during the chaotic hand jive contest, while the song born to hand jive is blaring just before it in sunny pool. Sandy off the dance floor and cha cha cuts it to win. Cut in to win with Danny causing Sandy leave the event? Broken hearted Womp womp Yeah, so So yeah, there's a whole dance sequence. It's pretty cool. The whole Marty thing with Vince Fontaine.

Anthony:

Yeah, that's creepy. It's creepy as hell.

Michael:

Yeah, it definitely is creepy. Um, you know, back then I didn't see it that way. Once again, because we're young, and were underage. So we don't see when an underage person is being exploited. Now that we're older, that perspective has changed.

Anthony:

No, I disagree. I remember thinking that was creepy. But I was only like, five when I saw it. I saw it before I was born. What are you talking about? It's creepy then.

Michael:

Ah. Yeah. I guess maybe I could have I but I didn't. I just didn't see it that way. And

Anthony:

I was a fetus washing it through my mom's belly button. And I thought it was creepy.

Michael:

Here's what I'm gonna say. Maybe I didn't think it's creepy. Because when I looked at those people, I didn't see 18 year olds. I saw 30 year olds like they were cast like 20, mid 20s and 30 year old. In my brain as a five year old. I probably that's why I'm seeing it as Okay, you know? I can Oh, yeah, that's good. I do love the name of the band. You know the name. You do know the name. I wrote it down here. You're gonna fucking cheat the name of the band. Okay, I

Anthony:

won't see what's the name of the band. I'm asking you. Do you know the name of the band? Yeah.

Michael:

I haven't written down in notes and you're looking at those same fucking notes. So it really doesn't help for me to ask. It's Johnny casino and the gamblers. I love when these movies have those cool names for bands. Yeah. You know, they just do have those cool names. Really cool name for those bands. Yeah, I love that. I love it. I think

Anthony:

cool Johnny Casino in the gamblers. Why is that so cool? It just is like fucking skin. Whoa. Yeah, but it's like, it's like

Michael:

a small t cover band. I mean, it's really got a good name for it. Like, you know, Johnny Casino in the gamblers. Alright, Michael. Yeah, the fishermen. I don't know.

Anthony:

Captain gage in the shrimp shack shooters.

Michael:

Fuck Yeah, we got a fictitious band names. That's it, man. That's it. That's number one right there. Um, what was number one on that? We did that list. Yeah. What was number one? Fuck me. Now that we'll have to go. But if you want to watch that, I think I still have that up. If you go to our skip line media. YouTube, there is a video of us talking about the greatest fictitious band names of all time. And I forget what it was number one now. Yeah, you don't remember. So it makes me feel vindicated that I am not an idiot. And you are not. You are not an idiot. We're just people who forget. All right. I just want to say that when they were dancing, and there was the stag line, women like standing around. Yeah, I thought they were so good looking chicks in there. If back then I would have been like, you know, I've been shopping in that line. Wow. You know, I mean, dude, I've been going out of it. I got my grocery bag out and said, Hey, he wants to get in. Holy fuck. I'm gonna ask them to dance nicely. Because I can dance. I don't know about you. Can you dance?

Anthony:

I'm not. I'm not even adding anything to this. Just move on. Can you dance? I just asked you Can you dance? Oh, no, I can't dance. But I'm talking about your shopping for girls in line want to get my bag? I'm still on that. Well,

Michael:

I was just I was I was making a metaphor to like, you know, when you're walking down an aisle and like they would be that'd be an aisle where they're standing. If I had to paint the metaphor out for you just don't stop

Anthony:

making metaphors, because they're very disturbing.

Michael:

Right? Okay. Not as disturbing as a 40 year old cha-cha posing as a school student. There's, there's no way that that's believable in my world. No, that's just, that's, that's wrong.

Anthony:

You got a flunk a lot of times to be that old in school.

Michael:

I just can't believe they let them in. Like, like, like, that's, they even look older than the girls who are playing high schoolers. Twice. It's like, yeah, I mean, you know that someone that's older when you can see the certain lines on their face. They don't get until you're much older, because that baby fat goes away. So she had that. That's that was what was really bad about it. I was about now um, but Danny Zuko knows cha cha. I think he should have right when she asked Who is that he should have just been honest with her and said, Hey, we may have dated or something just because I don't think she would have care personally.

Anthony:

Well, she did. She did care. They had at the drive. And she's like, well, I still think you went together. We'd not go together. We just went together. Which I still know. Here's the thing.

Michael:

Here's the thing. I don't think it would have been a problem. Because if he told her right then and there, she would have had that answer. Instead of having lingering in her head. Well, did they or didn't they? He answers it right there. Right. And it's in the bud. Yeah, they did move on. You know, that, to me, is what I'm trying to say. is like, I think the reason she was that way later is because he wasn't honest, and then ends up winning the dance thing with their own accident. Which, you know, he could have just stopped but you know, I mean, okay.

Anthony:

Yeah, I'm just saying, here's what happened. Okay. Everything Travolta sang about during summer love. That happened with cha cha, I'm sure.

Michael:

Summer loving was a summer before with Chacha. So you're saying Okay, got it. Or the summer before this one. Oh, yeah. The week before we met Sandy. Yeah, that summer

Anthony:

Daddy. Daddy was summer loving cha cha was fall fucking

Unknown:

fall fucking class. I saw some leaves and got me some mass. But it's funny. I can't believe you. Don't laugh at

Anthony:

I laugh so funny. I laugh on the inside is and cry.

Michael:

It's okay, so Okay, so we got some a few days we got some gay panic going on this one all couples have to be boy girl you know like they can't. And I get it was 78 when this came out and yeah, that's the way it was then couldn't have boy boy girl girl v that they and she's and she's in days he's in days too bad Eugene. We didn't hear too bad Eugene. So yeah, that's why I say they had the they had a little bit of that panic but you know, other than that the only the only other creepy thing was the events vontae just kept they kept that whole creepy relationship going with or Marty, him and Marty so. And the thing about Marty and I don't have it on my facts later, but it is a fact. The reason she was never seen dancing holidays because that actress could not dance at all. Yeah, that's what she was always off the side with him doing that stuff that was kind of contrived, for that reason. works that way. So I will say what's the dancing stars? They're pretty good together, him and him and Olivia Newton john. I mean, they look good as a partnership. I mean, it all looked fun. To me. It looked like a fun dance to do the hands. I've never done it. The hand jive though. doesn't include like leg movements. It's all literally hands. So they had to choreograph some leg movements in there.

Anthony:

See, I could do the hand drive. I just can't dance

Michael:

kit you could do the hands up. I want to see that when you come

Anthony:

here. Oh, no, I'm not gonna show you my hand drive. That's personal phone to hand job eBay. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Oh, yeah.

Michael:

Okay, um, kenickie Oh, there's a few things there. Bermuda flips off Vince Fontaine. I mean, obviously he's bow mudo with the best case of acne. I'm about the worst. At some point you got to be admired the amount of acne he has. Oh my god.

Anthony:

That's borderline Freddy Krueger without the makeup. He

Unknown:

gets it when do they call him crater faces that in Greece too. Or this one?

Anthony:

And that one? The whole place is a no parking zone. crater face.

Michael:

Yeah, okay. I try remember. Yeah. So yeah, I mean, he they obviously know it and they tell him but it makes you wonder how he still gets chick like Chacha

Anthony:

and they call him that in the parking lot right before he raw dogs Rizzo.

Michael:

Oh, yeah. Now Kentucky pulling up Patty Kim Simcock skirt. That's a little bit of a sexual assault on national TV. Right?

Anthony:

A little bit. Yeah. Yeah. It's way worse than going up to a line of girls with a shopping bag.

Michael:

A metaphorical shopping bag. Who do I want to shop for? Like, like, Okay, so here's the thing, I'm just gonna say that. So let's say you walk into a place and you're saying, Oh, come on here. Like, I want to pick up a girl. Do you not look at all the girls and go? Who would I like to approach? No, do you just go, you know, I'm gonna wait for them to come to me because I have no personality or our ability to talk to people. Right?

Anthony:

Here's the thing. There you go. You know what? Anytime I would ever have tried to do that. You know what happens? It's called, you go to the bar and drink until you're able to talk to somebody and by then you don't fucking care.

Michael:

See, I don't drink. And I have personality. So Oh, so my shopping bag. My shopping bag is full at the end of the day, yours is empty? Well, no, it's like you might have puked in yours. So that's why I'm saying it's my metaphorical shopping bag. That's all. I'm looking around. I'm saying Oh, I like that. I'm going to talk to that person. And then I find out they're wonderful. And I make a human emotional connection and find out that my shallow way of finding them just led to the deeper meaning within them. So um, let's move on. Who didn't go who didn't want to do those six shooters with Sandy you know, do that dance and dance along and doing your little six shooters? Yeah, I just want to do that so bad. I never. I'll think I wonder if I can get my wife to do that with me. I'm gonna ask her. She'll do six shooters. I want to watch the picture of it.

Anthony:

I want to watch that scene. But yeah, mute it and play wild. Will Smith Wild Wild West overtop

Michael:

Oh. Oh my gosh, we're gonna do that movie someday. Danny, I would say what Danny would chop chop cut in. Danny should have just quit. I think that would have been the standard thing to do. He just said you know what? I can't finish this with her because he should he should know Better than to continue on. I know it's national TV, but

Anthony:

yeah, national TV. I mean, you're you're right there. There's the finish line now.

Michael:

But it can't Yeah, I don't that's not pumping out. It's the holding. It's being true to the person you were there with.

Anthony:

Oh, he didn't do that.

Michael:

That's what he did. That's what saying he didn't

Anthony:

have any character flaw. Danny is a constant fuckup in this movie.

Michael:

Now, after they do when and they do the thing, and then we get the mooning, I don't think I would have done that. ever move the camera? Back then I just don't. I don't feel like that would be my thing. And how does the FBI know how to look at assets and ascertain who's it belongs to?

Anthony:

I think that was a crock of shit. She was just trying to get them to turn themselves in.

Michael:

She was shaking the tree to see If anything falls out. Alright, shaking the tree. Shake, shaking the assets and see if he falls out of the tree. Yeah. All right. So you can read the next one, right? Okay.

Anthony:

All right. So again, Danny fucked up yet again. tries to make it up to Sandy by taking her to a drive in theater, giving her his ring to wear. But Sandy leaves in anger after he tries to borderline rape her. He sings Sandy stranded at the drive and branded a fool. Meanwhile, Rizzo fear she is pregnant after missing a period and confides in Marty and that lasts about four seconds. Marty tell Sonny spreads the rumor we get the telephone game all the way back to Kentucky, the apparent father. So he thinks though Rizzo denies a Tim, somebody else's mistake. So result starts to be left out by other girls. And she realizes that she isn't as tough as she seems singing there are worse things I could do. Yes, now, is that? Yeah, I gotta ask. There were things that I could do then go with a boy or two. She talked about like double stuffing? Oh, I don't know.

Michael:

However, there there is a fan theory on that. Since you asked me about that real quick. There is a fan theory. I think I think it's a there is a prevailing fan theory that though there are worse things I could do is about getting an abortion. So that is a fan theory. All right. So I don't know. I don't know. I think that's pretty loose. Yeah. I don't think but I could see where the only way I believe it as a theory and is if the writer said hey, you know what, that is actually what I meant. But you since you can't say it, I made it. I changed all the words around so you know, it meant like worse things like be sexually promiscuous, you know, stuff like that. Because that's what I got out of I thought were things I could do is like, have sex with two at a time or something like you said, there's much worse things right than just having having an innocent sexual hookup that turns into having a kid. You know, I get that.

Anthony:

Except for I like, except for the guy that got the other side. He says, Yeah, true. Hey, my kid, that's true. My kid, I want their finger cuffs. That was in the back, man.

Michael:

That just every time I can that every time I think finger cuffs, you know what I'm thinking of chasing me? Yes. Yes, that's right. And so yeah, um, I think if I just, you know, with Sandy getting back to her, I think I'd be a little cold to Danny. You know, like I said he should have quit right away, didn't do it. And another thing that's ridiculous to me is that he wants to he's decided he wants to give her his reign. Why would he have been stupid enough to keep it on his finger? To You know, cuz, you know, it's hard to get off. Like, like, if he thought he's gonna do that. Why would you had it ready to just hand it to her? It just seems like he just,

Anthony:

I think, yeah, I think it was in the moment. It was after? Because Yeah, it was because they were just having the discussion about cha cha. And what really happened if he actually did stuff with her cha cha. And then so he's like, now I gotta do something else to show Sandy how I feel and fix this because I keep fucking everything up. So that's why I decided givers ring

Michael:

Okay, okay, so you think it was spur of the moment just to try and keep a relationship better okay. Yeah, now um so after that he does the we get to see the Rizzo Kentucky thing. And I have it on here and you love this movie? I think just like I do. Yes. Did Johnny dangerously steal this grapevine? rumor telephone game gag. Oh, To get from this, I don't know,

Anthony:

you know? Because no, I love that movie. Yeah, but this one stays pretty consistent. This telephone game gag in here.

Michael:

Oh, yeah, that one they say a bunch of different things. Some of the some of the sudden. Yeah,

Anthony:

resumes got plenty of it. That's all you get it yet.

Michael:

It still changes. It's just not the same. It's just it just is the same thing. Just different words. Yeah. That's pretty cool. Oh, yeah. And I don't know why she would play it off as someone else's. It's like, I don't understand why she would do that. Because I mean, is this whole movie about being cool. It's all about being cool with. I don't know why you would do that. I mean, because he seemed to be genuinely engaged in my opinion.

Anthony:

Oh, no, you know, what did he say to her?

Michael:

I don't remember the exact words.

Anthony:

I don't run away from my mistakes. So at that point, I don't think she wants to know.

Michael:

Yeah, he doesn't run away from his mistakes. And I understand his wording wasn't great. Right. What he's trying to say is I'm hear that in a poor way. So semantics is your problem. Say? Do you mean that you're here for me? Or are you saying that we're a mistake? That's what you ask your next question. He says it's a mistake. Then you go. Oh, so you meant it's a mistake. Fuck, you. Know, I mean, I'm here for you. You know, Oh, okay. There's

Anthony:

two things. Number one, is I think the way he said it, she's like, I don't really want to fucking tell you now. Number two, would you want Kentucky to be the father of your fucking child? Um, okay, there you go.

Unknown:

I don't know I don't know he's not a bad guys. Not too bad in the movie is saying you're stuck with him. Then

Michael:

he Hickey from Kentucky's like, give it to everyone.

Anthony:

You want that to be the father figure in your child's life? Yeah. Yeah, do you do I know.

Michael:

My daughter watched that movie a long time ago. So there you go.

Anthony:

Well, I know cuz you are the You are the connecting your child. Next. I am not a Kentucky. Alright, let's go. Come on.

Michael:

You want it to be a Kentucky so. So the heat. But now when we get to the sort of the driving scene, I think this is what i think you know, Danny shows a little lack of respect. Like you said, he basically tries to Raipur. It's It feels like a groper in any way. without, you know, he doesn't like

Anthony:

his biggest fuckup How does he get a happy ending at the end of the movie? He's the biggest fucking fuckup ever.

Michael:

I don't know. And she calls this chorus sin wagon. Now, the sin way.

Anthony:

How did she? Yes. Okay. I just like when she slams the door.

Michael:

You see, and she says I'm like somebody your sin wagon. So? Yeah, I think it's funny. You call us you call a sin wagon. But yeah, I think that that's funny that, that here's what we get. He sexually assaulted her and then gets to sing a song about how she heard him really bad. After she said no to his sexual assault.

Unknown:

Yes. Oh my gosh. And that's where we get this. Go ahead.

Anthony:

I have just that's just fucked up.

Michael:

It is. It just is. So to say he gets to be he's trying to be victimized by being told no. When he just shouldn't have done it, he should have asked anyways, or at least gotten some sort of sent sign that was okay. He didn't even he didn't even like warm up didn't just put her arm his arm around her and then maybe even try to kiss her or anything. You know what I mean? Like he didn't even like try to make an advance that's more appropriate to see I could go further

Anthony:

understand that, like, you know, he got the sign when she said now I know you respect me. That was his cue that okay, we can fuck now cuz I respect you. Time to find what that means. In the sand wagon.

Michael:

So, so yeah, so hurt a real bad but the funny part is, is you know, the at the end on that scene, the when the song ends, it ends on the hot dog. Yes. You know, into the little jokes. Yes. john travolta was livid that the director shot it this way and said he wasn't gonna do the rest of the movie if they did that. Obviously the director one and he got his hot dog shot. I think he he had a specific note on it. He said, geez, I'm awful with this.

Anthony:

I know.

Michael:

Because I know. Oh, he says but the hot dog I was fantastic. I didn't want to shoot the close up because I love the hot dog. That was a battle, but i want

Anthony:

i thought was great too. I mean, it's good. Was that like a metaphor to? Um, I don't know, it didn't say the hot dog going into the bun, Danny? Because he would try to put the hot dog in the bun.

Michael:

You're right, maybe maybe it is maybe does that? I don't know. That's an interesting take. I didn't think of that. Because that way,

Anthony:

we'll think about this way. He's dragged the drive in because he was trying to force the hot dog in the barn and not do what was on screen and wait till the button opens up and says put the hot dog in

Michael:

your fright. It's a metaphor. He should have been. It's a metaphor. It should have presented that situation. He said I have a hot dog. Do you want to open your bond? Alright, so that's where we ended up the driving. So now we get to the school and they actually finished the car. Yeah, the greased lightning. Murdock. I find it funny that the teacher

Anthony:

Yeah, Murdoch.

Michael:

Yeah. And I but I find it funny that Murdoch knows that they stole most of the parts and condones the race that they're doing. Now that wouldn't happen fast and furious. I mean, you get kicked out of the country to Tokyo. If you get caught racing you know how that works. Sorry, man. Yeah, bringing up your favorite movie as much as so was it on the way when they win a Kentucky and Danny hug? Was that gay panic again? Or were they just trying to look cool?

Anthony:

They're just didn't want to people see him hug cuz that's not a cool thing to do. That's all Yeah. Okay. Wow. That's so cool. To hug another guy. That's machoism and hug you. I know you would. I won't let you bro. I won't let you because you would want to do it for the wrong reasons.

Michael:

I'm gonna I'm gonna pull up Danny and just make it happen. Hey, hey.

Anthony:

Ron is quote. Yeah, my button is closed. Your button is closed. I'm going I'm telling you right now. My button is close.

Michael:

Ah, so um, so then we get to Rizzo song. Now, here's the thing. If you listen to the words and stuff, you hear some things. There's a lot of people who believe that Rizzo is their spirit animal. Like they really identify with the character, but she hasn't a song. Like one of the worst things you could do is not put out. Like I could just be a tease. She says at the beginning of the song. It's really weird like those. It's really strange. That that's part of the things that could be the worst thing she does. I just find that strange. I don't know. What do you think?

Anthony:

Well, she's saying I could just wait around for something that'll never happen.

Michael:

Yeah, I guess but that's right. Right. Yeah. All right. But I just find some of the things she says to be a little bit like it's like it's like throwing her life away. You know, having sex and or not having sex. It's just either way it sounds like it's it's a problem for her. Like, I don't do too many guys not do any what's the right amount that's about it's like

Anthony:

it's one or the other? There's no middle ground here.

Michael:

Yeah. Or Or here's my middle ground as always do what you want to do. If it makes you happy as long as you do it safely and responsibly. Now,

Anthony:

you should get out. I shit I think it's one or the other. It's a closed bond or one bond for all the hotdogs.

Michael:

One button for all hot dogs. Now she's all taught all tough, but she's pretty soft inside. She should just be more open. That's all I think. I just think she should have been more open.

Anthony:

I think she has been open. I think that's the problem. She's been a little bondsmen open a little too often open. She's got she got keep that shit buried down because you don't become the king of the pink ladies by expressing your shit. gonna be hard.

Michael:

You gotta bury those feelings. You got to bury them all straight up from recently. We just talked about this just straight down. For you it is

Anthony:

your own trip.

Michael:

No movie extra. Bury that shit. No. We didn't do that sex drive. Yeah, we didn't. Yeah, yeah. Bury that shit. Deep down deep down. Yeah, they're both it's funny. There's very, very similar things going on here. A trip and sex drive. Both good though. All right, so are we ready? Is this my turn or your turn? It is my okay. Okay, on race day. on race day with the greased light and can Nikki suffers a concussion when hit by his own car door. So Danny takes the wheel. He and Leo race until he spins out and leaves humiliated making Danny the victor Sandy watches from afar concluding she still loves Danny and decides to change her attitude and look to impress him she asked Frenchie for help to achieve this and things look at me I'm Sandra Dee and a reprise so just as just a little quick scene This is one of those you know the classic I have my notes are horrible and I'm you know me misspellings I found that my notes Oh, I

Anthony:

can't imagine Holy shit. Yeah.

Michael:

What do I did? That's the white knight no white knights classic white knight versus Black Knight collars. I have their advice I just had night versus night. Okay, I couldn't read so it's like the classic one cars why one cars black you know the black guys the bad guy but no, not the black guy the black car is the although back in the day, they were not very good with that so but the black car was the bad guys car the white cards are good guys car. The kid typical trope now what's dumb those the concussion? Don't you think that's a dumbest way to suffer one?

Anthony:

What picking up a penny?

Michael:

Yeah, like the girl holds it out. Like it's gonna make her sick, you know, with their little fingers and then drops it and then he gets down there and dumb ass opens the door and knocks him out.

Anthony:

Yeah, that happens when she was doing the dirty penny on the ground.

Michael:

See a penny pick it up all day long. Good luck. I mean, I get it. But I don't. I'm not a superstitious person. I've been like, fuck that penny. But we wouldn't get Danny driving. Which because of this. Have you ever seen the movie The Dallas Steve? No. See in the Dallas? Steve. It has a Donald low. You know who he is? I don't He's an actor. Well, he has a dow of Steve McQueen is what it's called. And he says one of the things you must do to pick up a girl as be excellent in their presence. So had he not had to been able to drive he would not have been able to be excellent in front of Sandy at Thunder Road and win the race, which helps her make her decision to get back with him. Think of that? It was and if you've watched that movie, it's the Dow Steve. Watch it. It's great.

Anthony:

You think that that's that? That's where he won a race. So that makes her like him again. He tried to rape her at the driving.

Michael:

He was excellent and her presence and she doesn't see us right back then she sees it as him just being a little handsy because sexual assault was a little more tolerated back. See, to see it that way. You know how it is? That's how it was back then. I guess you know, you grabbed a girl's ticket and she smacked your hand said no, you don't do that. When in reality, you just did something bad. But back then that wasn't the bad the bad thing would be if you did it one more time. After this smacks your hair. Bad. They'll just say that was the tolerance of sexual assault that you had back in the day. And it would be trivialized as just boys being boys rather than assholes being assholes. Right, right. On this race, I don't think either car would have finished Did you see how that car look when it whenever that jump?

Anthony:

Yeah, but it did. It was bad. But you can't say that. As we're doing all these fucking Fast and Furious movies. You can't watch that. And not bring that up during any of those films and say, Oh, they could have never finished at Thunder Road.

Michael:

I did it too fast, too furious when they jumped that bridge. I did say that was fucking ridiculous when they landed. Like in road trip, it would have been more like the road trip landing then the Fast and Furious landing. Road Trip the car just falls apart. You know, the wheels fall off the car that is realistic. And that's kind of what you see when Danny goes over that you see the hood popping up? You see the wheels do crazy shit. And then the other guy loses just by getting into a little bit of water. Yeah, just a little bit of water, you know? Man, but but his spikes on his car. Those are pretty cool. Those are pretty cool. I always like that reminiscent of James Bond. But you know what they really were, you know what it really was harkening back to they actually were and Ben Hur, they have the chariot scene. Yes. Where they have those on the sides and the in the spikes ruin. Go through the chariot. But don't ruin the wheels. And in both cases, the guy in the you know, the right person wanted both cases, just to let you know, that's what it was actually meant to emulate. Was the been her scene. So they did a good job. Yeah, I will say and that's why I was saying I have a note here. It's a good thing. Danny had his own car there. Because there's no way he's driving Greased Lightning home.

Anthony:

Yeah, they're gonna have to tow that.

Michael:

And they have to get fucking Damascus car too.

Anthony:

I know. And that's the thing. You're racing. You're racing for pink slips and you're destroying each other's cars. So what's the fucking good of it?

Michael:

Well, the good news is the Greased Lightning didn't do the spikes to his car. So there's that. You know, here's the thing. I think I like just want to go into this. Sandy at that point says she wants Frenchie to help her but I think she should just stay the way she is. And know her worth as a human being and how she is great the way she is. She doesn't have to change. No, Danny does shouldn't have to change either. Yeah, they should just be a part is the real? No, the real Danny is the person that was at the beach, Danny, the cool guy is put on and we know this. He should just be who he really is. And wear a leather jacket.

Anthony:

I think I've always said the real Danny is a fuckup constantly.

Michael:

He is a constant fuckup I will say that. All right. So you ready to get to this last section? Because this is the longest podcast we've ever done. No, shut up. Okay. But the last section

Anthony:

All right, we're at the end. Finally, almost. So last day of school principal gretta McGee and her assistant Blanche Saab about the departing class, Rizzo discover she is not knocked up and reunites with Kentucky so hopefully they can try that shit again. Danny has lettered in track, but he's shocked when Sandy arrives dressed as a slutty female and a bunch of leather smoking and shit. they confess their mutual love and reconcile while singing. You're the one that I want, who the class celebrates their graduation at the fair on school grounds, performing we go together Sandy and Danny de part in a revamped reef lightning which takes flight once he hits a bump as Greece is playing and of movie.

Michael:

So revamped Greece, ladies, I don't think it's the car we saw earlier. I think it is or close to the action. But once again, their football team probably sucked because they're doing one more thing on that field holding a carnival. Just throw it out there. Yeah. And this scene by the way, that one that I want that see the all these Carnival scenes were shot in one afternoon, because they shot at a carnival that happen to be traveling through town. So that lets you know. Awesome. That's kind of cool. Yeah, and then they bully Eugene again. Of course. You

Anthony:

know, cuz he can throw when they can't always fun.

Michael:

Yeah, that's the funny thing. They bully him but for things they can't do. It's like, yeah, you're fucking moron. And, and I want to say, there is no more joyous sound in the world and fight is hearing a man react to the fact that his girlfriend is not pregnant. Whoo. all excited, man. He's like, I don't understand. You know, whatever. He didn't wasn't that excited. He didn't sound that great. excited when they had sex.

Anthony:

Yeah, that's funny. We didn't see the whole thing. So maybe at the end, he was all like, Who knows?

Michael:

I am. I like that. I will say is Danny look good in that letterman jacket. You know, they were all wondering where he got it. But you know, he looked like he looked like he was the guy.

Anthony:

He belonged. Oh, yep. Yeah, born to wear that.

Michael:

So not too long after they get into the where he sees Sandy. And off to say back then. Everything that came out like movies and stuff told me that Sandy was the type of girl that I needed that I wanted. Like, that's what they were telling me as a young person. This is the type of girl you need. want all the time? I don't know about you. Yeah, it's the leather bound, but that's what I felt like. It's the leather. Yeah. Oh, there's like, Mike, you need this. Mike. This is the kind of girl everybody wants. I mean, yeah, I mean, that's what I was told all the time. It's crazy. And, and when that song started, you know, it's funny how quickly, his letterman jacket came off. Did you notice that? Yeah, we saw those hot pants and they started singing that song. Bounce that jacket. Just all of a sudden, he didn't. He didn't have to be more like her in order to to do that. She had to be more like him. But he didn't have to be more like her. I find that interesting.

Anthony:

Yeah, it's okay. What about you? Well, I think it was just really hot out and that's what I was getting warm.

Michael:

Yeah, yeah, I just think I think the whole situation was a little misogynistic on how the man is a male's point of view. So I'm trying to be having to be catering to the male all of that. But after you get past all that the duets wonderful. Yeah, I think it's a great song. I love the song. I mean, I always sing I got chills are multiplying. I mean, I can't stop saying that sometimes.

Anthony:

I know. My Fanny. I was singing after my second COVID show.

Michael:

I got chills. Cuz a COVID. There you go. Now, I think the funhouse when they're in there, and the dancing and and you know, I think that director made great use of how the things turn and how things move back and forth. I thought it was a really, yeah. well executed.

Anthony:

It was especially for like you said that they had that Carnival coming through. Yes. Yeah. Good job with it.

Michael:

Yeah, that's I mean, yeah. Although they did say later on. They did film some close ups outside of the carnival, so they may have done some of those close ups. But everything from you know, farther out was all at the carnival. Yeah, so not sure. I don't know what that means. I'd have to know more. But But yeah, I just think they made the great use of using those rides. Even They rented it and put it on a set somewhere and use the inside of it I think it still is excellent. How they did that and I love the the final song. I love a lot of things I like it when he goes walk BAM a Luma pop Bam Boom you're supposed to finish I did. You just barely although I left you hanging once when you said something like that to me more than one I do remember that. He did something I'm like, and you're like okay but I just wanna let you know i at one time did the song we go together and show choir

Anthony:

Good for you.

Michael:

Yeah, I did. You don't even want to know about that. Whatever man. No. All the we go together like Rama Lama Lama Ganga dang it all together for a river like Shoo bop Chihuahua to hippity boom, boom. Che che See, I know the song. I know. I can dance. I say I can dance to

Anthony:

a lot of fucking losers did that song in show choir? in the eighth grade? Not just y'all Fuck you,

Michael:

man. I was I was exceptional show choir. I don't even want to hear that shit. Quit saying that out loud. I'm a loser was saying what

Anthony:

out loud? You're so good show choir. You don't want people know that shit. Yeah, keep that shit buried deep down.

Michael:

Yeah, you do. You gotta keep it buried down a little bit. Um, I would I would say but i'm most good at it. And I was great show choir is really good singer. So I don't problem with that. Now. I love the backup dancers. Like I said, there is that backup dancer in there. That did the thing. So I thought it was interesting when they all joined in. And you see a lot more people than just the principal cast because it would look really weird. Yeah, just a few dancing. But here's the thing. At the end, it seems normal and then they get in the car. And it starts to fly. Yep. And we start hearing the Chipmunks in the song. What the fuck is that?

Anthony:

I mean, was that? I don't understand. That's a director's decision.

Michael:

I don't understand. Yeah. Like, I was like, what I I always forgot that the Chipmunks were there. I was like, man, they really they went for it didn't take. Yes, they did. They did go very, very well. And that was okay. That was okay. And that's pretty much it. I mean, they transition the song Greece, and I think it was a great transition. And but we don't get any post credits that are great. I mean, they do have some pictures, but I don't think there's anything significant. Yeah, but, but it was a great, that was great. That's in and seeing. I think that's the most bizarre any movie you'd ever see. Is the car flying and the Chipmunks singing we go together to you.

Anthony:

It's very weird.

Michael:

I don't that I would say. I say you could probably play cocaine or something like that. Because back then there's a lot of coke use going on in the industry. So maybe they just thought it would be cool. Well, that's why there's a lot of there's a lot of careers that could have been better if it weren't for cocaine. I guess Richard Dreyfus had an issue and he did a lot of good movies, but he could have done more if he had his cocaine habit under control.

Anthony:

All right, let's wrap this shit up.

Michael:

you're wanting to wrap it up, but we got some

Anthony:

fucking Hannover nobody's gonna listen. I'm ready. Six Pack. Alright, my first one is we didn't talk about this Blanche during the pep rally when he's giving that horrific motivational speech. Yes. That run she's like so into that. She's like, she's visualizing people dying. And I love that from her.

Michael:

is awesome. All right shot. Got it. Here I go. I love the front Here to Eternity opening. Like I said, I love that loved all the visuals. I've already told you why. So I'll just go on to the next let him go to his next one. Because it sounds like he's ready to move on. Yes.

Anthony:

I've heard too much about you today. Um, can Nikki's lighter. Oh, yeah. That thing's a flame thrower. That's a torch. You'll cut.

Michael:

You'll get your eyebrows with Daffy lighted cigarette? Yeah. Grease in his hair. That thing is flaming. Oh, that's dangerous. Yeah, that's a director. All right. Remember there was this is really isn't as long as it is you thinking as members of time when we were just chilling the beginning? You better do

Anthony:

some editing.

Michael:

All right. Summer loving, of course. I love that too. It's a great one. And there's not much more to say. Just Summer Love and have me a blast, baby. You know, word up. There. You ready for your next? Are you ready for your next one?

Anthony:

I'm the last one. Thunder Road. You'd like to race race? Yeah, that was like when your kid watching that. That's like awesome.

Michael:

It was I would say that was pretty epic. It was. It was probably the one of the better. When I was five. I probably identified with that part of the movie. Yeah, anything.

Anthony:

That's what I'm thinking. That's, that's what I said.

Michael:

Yeah. All right. I'm gonna throw just a couple out of eight here. Cuz I got more than three. How's that sound?

Anthony:

Of course you do.

Michael:

We go together, I sing it. So that's why it's on this list. I did a show choir performance to some dancing, some singing. And I enjoyed it. The second thing john travolta is dancing. I think he was I love it, seeing him do a funky chicken. And you know, doing some pelvic saran wrap work. That's always fun. But the most overall, I think I like Newton John's total performance in this movie overall as a high point, lady, she was very consistent and very good the whole time. That's, that's where I met with her. So she is Sandy. Yes, she is. She is she is Sandy. She's Sandra Dee. And I believe it's so believable. So are you ready for generic? Oh, yes. All right. Let me hit the thing. Oh,

Anthony:

longest episode ever and he still cannot work the fucking buttons the right way. Okay, um, my one generic. It's always like, I just always thought was weird. That Sandy puts that greasy ass ring on her finger. He had to rub it through greasy hair like seven times to be able to get it off. So that thing's got to be coated. It's just putting on like, no big deal.

Michael:

Cuz you're a clean freak.

Anthony:

It's gonna feel gross. Yeah, all that grease and shit in your on your finger. That just whatever. Yeah, just say Yeah. Is it is that I mean, I got I could obviously go into all the rapey stuff and the things that are wrong throughout this movie with certain areas, but oh, I'm going with the greasy ring.

Michael:

Okay, Okay, here we go. I got something for you. And I'm gonna get it right this time. Hold on. There we go. The sub there's, I'm gonna give you two here real quick. So because the first one just kind of throw away some gay panic. I think there is some in here. And then also the plot where the nice girl has to turn into a dirty hooker to gain a guy's approval. That probably is the the generic part of this movie. Yeah. That's kind of what they're telling us. Oh, you want to know I want to get with a guy. Look slutty. Hi. Um, that to me is a little bit of a downer. Of course. Now I'm gonna go through some facts because I did take some time to get some the name of T birds had original name. You know what the original name was? And the Broadway show the dipshits burger palace boys. Okay. Originally, the producers wanted to make Greece an animated movie. So but they settled on live action. instead. The majority of the cast hadn't been in a high school in quite a while john travolta was 23 living in john 28. And Stockard Channing was 33. That's crazy. So that just tells you how old they were. Uh, Henry Winkler was considered for the part of Danny but he turned it down because he didn't want to be typecast after starring and happy days. Yeah, I didn't make sense. Yeah, I did tell you that to change that so that it do that. Okay. Gerald son, Gerald Ford. You know, the president at the time your son Stephen was initially cast as Sandy's jock boyfriend, Tom. But even though the part had no lines, he decided he was too nervous the role went to Lorenzo Lamas instead. So we'll never seen the Renzo Lamas there. That isn't that crazy would have been a shame. The song Greece lightning was supposed to be sung by Kentucky. But john travolta convinced within convince he said he wouldn't do the movie unless he was the one who sang that song. And that's how he got there you go. There you go. Although, who wants to see Jeff Conway, like not me know what everyone? Well, at the time I don't know john travolta. I guess john bolton was just in a bigger movie. So yeah, make sense. Jeff Conway who plays Kentucky was taller than john travolta so in order to make it feel like john travolta was taller, he slouched when he was filmed

Anthony:

with him. Oh, geez. Another fucking Tom Cruise.

Michael:

Yeah. have most of the dancers had Nick had character names, but we didn't see them. Their names like sauce tricks, cc wapo. And Bubba. Yes, I just thought that was interesting. Sandy's pants were actually belonged to her. They were 25 years old, and she had to be sewn into them when her zipper broke. Okay,

Anthony:

I was gonna guess he had to be sewn into him anyways, because those are some tight leather pants.

Michael:

The producers had hoped for a product placement deal with Coke, but it fell through. But it fell through. There are several shots of Coca Cola products and signs and the scenes taking place in the frosty palace. They have been blurred out or digitally removed,

Anthony:

man. What a shame at

Michael:

I know like they didn't they didn't get that coke money. And Coke is not in like the most celebrated movie musical of all time. So there you go. After the sex sex after the success of the first movie, it's the top grossing musical in the us today. This movie was supposed to have three sequels. However Greece two bombed at the box office, those plans were cancelled in 2002, dd con Olivia Newton john and john travolta were all pushing to have a grease three produce, which would focus on the original Cast and characters many years later, and another decade, like the 70s, or the 90s, but this movie never got beyond the planning stages. We got cheated as, as we got cheated, that I agree. Let's see. Okay, there's another fan theory that I want to tell you about in the decades following this movies released. that tell you about the book. I'll tell you no, I didn't tell you this. Okay, and following this movie is really a theory circulate that Sandy actually drowned at the beach. And the rest of this movie is a near death hallucination. There is claimed the famous flyaway and is Sandy's ascent to

Anthony:

heaven. That is quite a stretch.

Michael:

It's an interesting fan theory, though. I would say that. Yeah. But you know what? You could say that and, and would make just as much sense, right? We don't see as a drowning scene. Yeah. Um,

Anthony:

so is Danny in the cache is Danny the guy that found a dead body or what?

Michael:

Think that they were on the beach

Anthony:

or swimming and Is he the one that drowned her because she wouldn't put out like you wanted her to at the beginning of the movie. Oh, shit, it

Michael:

got darker. Whoa, whoa, shit. got darker. And chick she's having a hallucination in a world where he's nice to her

Anthony:

that would that would explain the the attempted date rape scene at the drive in

Michael:

in the hallucination. Yeah, there we go. Yeah, because that is a hallucination, remember? Okay, so while shooting, the cast of Bad News Bears challenged the cast to a softball game and john travolta pitched so that's pretty epic. Who wants to say no, it doesn't say. So. Kentucky's car Greased Lightning is a 1948 Ford Deluxe convertible, the scorpions cars in 1949 mercury custom. briefly seen is the pink ladies 1948 Studebaker commander regal with suicide doors. The car Danny takes the driving the sin wagon is a 1949 dodge wayfare. The 1948 48 Ford Deluxe is the same model given to bumper to bumper Daniel Russo for his birthday in The Karate Kid. There's okay. And we got that's it. That's all I have. All right. Perfect. So are you ready to rate this mother flipper? Let's rate it. All right, here you go. You go. Oh,

Anthony:

I'll go. Okay. All right. So Greece is iconic. Everybody knows that. You know, you grew up on it. I've seen it so many times. For the musical aspect of it. Love it. So it's way up there. At the same time, knowing how much shit was in this movie and how screwed up it was with how men treated women and Danny Zuko again. One of the biggest fuck ups throughout the movie keeps fucking up. Still gets the girl in the end. Not sure about that. So because of how much is wrong with this movie? I have to knock it down. It's it's something I grew up with. It's part of my childhood. So that's high for me. But there's so much fucked up stuff in this movie that that's just like, what the hell even though I know was back in the day, things were different. But because of that, I am giving it 17 cans. And Mike anytime you're ready, go ahead. You're muted. In case you don't know. out half 17 What do you hate this movie? No, I don't hate it. But it's too fucked up. Hey, man,

Michael:

when you come over, I want you to dress like a slutty version of yourself to appease me. Would you do that? I don't have leather pants. Alright, okay, so here is this movie. Like he said, it's a pillar of my childhood, I would have to say people my age. This is probably one of the number one movies that they ask you. Have you seen this? And if you say no, it's like, oh my gosh, what's wrong with you? Right? Like, it's like someone's saying they haven't seen Star Wars. You know, it's like, what Greece is Star Wars. And when you look at the math, it makes sense. It was a $1.5 billion movie and today's money. You know that and that's what Star Wars does. 1.5 to $2 billion. So it's that big, but he's right problems everywhere. date rape. Let's see what else uh, you know, I don't know, just just bad friends like shitty friends like Frenchie, like, all that stuff. But here's the thing. I have such great movies. I love singing the songs. It's how I am. I've sang the songs. That's because it's So I, so I'm going to give this a higher score than you. Okay. I'm going to give this 121 cans. I think it's over 20 can movie, it is an addition.

Anthony:

That's just. But that's how I am with it. It's just like, knowing, you know, seeing it. When you're not a kid, it's just way different.

Michael:

I agree. And that's 19 can't average for so it's below 20 for an average. Would you say that this movie is better or worse than Titanic?

Anthony:

What do you mean better or worse? I'm not comparing them.

Michael:

If I compare them, I think this is a better movie than Titanic. I'm guessing you think it's a worse movie than Titanic? I don't know. Just my thoughts. You brought up Titanic during this movie. So I'm just

Anthony:

Well, here's the thing. The thing about Titanic. Titanic is too goddamn long. Unlike this podcast, podcast, Titanic links at this point this episode. Um, yeah, take proportions. I put Titanic over Greece.

Michael:

I figured what? Okay, so I think our scores are probably flipped. But we haven't done that movie yet. So we'll see. All right. But hey, tell them some things that you want to tell them
