Grease Scene 1

Scene 1

Scene 1

  • "Love is a many-splendored thing."
  • Or so sings a disembodied heavenly chorus while John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John frolic on a beach.
  • The young woman, Sandy, says she'll have to go back to Australia soon.
  • She's sad the best summer of her life is coming to an end.
  • John Travolta, Danny, kisses her like he's about to eat her face off.
  • He promises that it's "only the beginning."
  • And he's right in more ways than one: cue opening credits.
