Grease

Trivia: Grease was released in Mexico under the name 'Vaselina'.

Trivia: During the Thunder Road race between Danny and "Crater Face", Annette Charles (Cha-Cha) was in terrible pain from an ectopic pregnancy. This is why she is frequently seen in the film leaning against cars.

Trivia: When Frenchy and Doody arrive at the National Dance Off, Frenchy asks Doody how does she look, to which Doody replies, "Like a beautiful blonde pineapple." Barry Pearl (Doody) ad-libbed this line.

Trivia: Leo's name is never spoken in the movie. It is only mentioned in the end credits.

Trivia: The rest of the cast did not see Olivia Newton-John in her greaser girl outfit until she walked into the scene at the Graduation Carnival. The stunned reactions of the T-Birds are real.

Trivia: Jeff Conaway (Kenicke) and Olivia Newton-John (Sandy) were brother-in-law and sister-in-law in the early 1980s. Conaway was married to Olivia's sister Rona.

Audio problem: During "We Go Together" at the end, John Travolta's mouth is not in sync with the words "we'll always be like one." He appears to start singing "that's the way it should be" before realizing and correcting his mistake.

More quotes from Grease

Answer: It is implied that Danny and Rizzo had a previous romantic relationship of some kind. When Jan says, "Did you guys get a look at Zuk this Morning? Looking pretty good this year, huh, Rizz?" Rizzo replies, "that's ancient history." Later, when Danny says, "you're looking good, Rizz, " her answer, "eat your heart out," also suggests some possible residual feelings on her part. I think that's why Rizzo enjoys tormenting Sandy and Danny by reintroducing them at Rydell at a moment that she knows Danny is going to save face around his friends.

Michael Albert

Answer: Yes.

Answer: Yes... after the reunion of Danny and Sandy and Danny playing cool and blowing her off, Rizzo stands back with a stupid grin on her face like she's proud of herself.

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Plus, at the beginning of the movie it's implied that she and Danny were a fling or at least flirting at some point. Could be she was mad at the ending of it if it wasn't her choice. Later, when he calls her Sloppy Seconds, that seems to really shock her, but I'm less sure it implies anything.
