Scene 1

Scene 1

  • Our opening credits are set over a montage of people dancing.
  • They all look freshly showered and shampooed. Where's the dirty dancing?
  • After the credits, we're introduced to Baby Houseman, in the backseat of her parents' car in the summer of 1963.
  • They're heading to Kellerman's Mountain Estate for a summer getaway.
  • When they arrive, Baby's sister frets that she didn't bring the right shoes.
  • Her family tries to convince her there are greater problems in the world, like "monks burning themselves in protest."
  • They're interrupted by Newman from Seinfeld introducing the day's activities. Horseshoes, a water class, art class, volleyball, croquet.
  • Baby helps Billy, a member of the staff, get the family's bags from the trunk. He offers her a job. We wish all jobs were this easy to get.
