Everyone in the second diner scene does this out of frustration or anger Kenickie in particular gets a milkshake in his face courtesy of an angry Rizzoleaving Frenchy on her own and resulting in the "Beauty School Dropout" number. Sandy also has a habit of doing this, as she does it first after she meets Danny again, thinking him a phony for his bad boy persona, at the dance after Cha-Cha starts dancing with Danny, and then at the drive-in after a Yawn and Reach moment from Danny backfires.
Coach Calhoun saying "I'll see you in summer school" was meant to be found a sequel where the gang have to go to summer school but Paramount didn't want to do it and by the time they did get around to making Grease 2most of the original cast were busy. Danny tries a few times to try for sports, including basketball, wrestling and baseball, resulting in fisticuffs when it goes wrong for him.Meet The Breeds: French Bulldog
Coach Calhoun gets around this by having him try out for track, because it involves no physical contact. This time, Danny turns out to be very good at it. Out of all the songs on the film soundtrack, the title track — you know, the one that plays during the Animated Credits Opening — doesn't even try to sound fifties-ish.
It's basically Frankie Valli doing disco. Director Randal Kleiser actually wanted the song removed for this very reason, plus the fact that he felt that the lyrics sounded too cynical for what was ostensibly a happy film, but producer Robert Stigwood overruled him, as the song had been written by Barry Gibb, whose group, the Bee Gees, were signed to Stigwood's record label, RSO Records, which produced both Grease and Saturday Night Fever.
Danny spends a lot of the movie blustering, strutting, scuffling, and generally trying to look tough.

He lands a Pie in the Face on Coach Calhoun and gets promoted to hitter on the baseball team. Eugene himself receives a Pie in the Face from an angry Sonny. To make the script for the live show, the script for the film was expanded with parts of the original stage play that did not make it into the film. This resulted in more dialogue and scenes for the secondary T-Birds and Pink Ladies, among other additions.
Examples not taken from the play include: Marty is the one responsible for convincing the National Band Stand to film their show at Rydell High. She also gets to sing her song.
Much like how the film added in scenes where we see Danny tryout for track, the live show added in scenes where we see Sandy tryout for cheerleading.
Sandy is also given a backstory of having overprotective parents who do not even let her go to school dances, much to her chagrin. As a result, her change into the iconic skintight getup at the end of the show feels more like something she did for herself, not her friends. In contrast to Sandy, Danny mentions that he envies Sandy's parents for caring about her, while his do not.
Eugene is given a passion for rocket science, and a calm demeanor to go with it. His knowledge is used to boost the speed of the T-Birds' car, allowing Danny to win his race against the Scorpions. Patty Simcox is given extra dialogue to establish that she is extremely competitive. Tom Chisum is given a line of dialogue instead of having no dialogue whatsoever. His dialogue happens when he introduces himself to Sandy, something we do not see in the movie.
The TV version also finally states a theme throughout the movie, which is "What's the point of living if you don't take a few chances? Sandy is hit by this again; her last name goes from Dumbrowski in the playto Olsen in the film to Young here.
The T-Birds gained more redeeming qualities in this version, especially Danny. Examples include being more kind and respectful to the Pink Ladies, and finally repaying Eugene for helping them win the race by welcoming him to their gang. Rizzo, in the original play andzips from being a Jerkass to a Jerk with a Heart of Gold like a pinball. In this version, she is more established as the latter, as she is shown to be a bit nicer to Sandy, even talking to her about changing after the climatic race.
She even asks Kenickie to be careful before his race, despite their earlier fight. Although the T-Birds bar Kenickie and Danny were this trope in other adaptations, they seem to have had an extra dose of it in this adaptation.
Doody in particular had his adorkable factor turned up ever since he's started to play guitar.
It's enough to make the girls around the school and the girls of the studio audience swoon. Tom Chisum is seen stacking his and Sandy's lunchtrays, the table condiments, and his burger and fries into a tower after Sandy leaves the table in the fast food joint. Also, his awkward first words with Sandy were borderline cute. The theater-in-the-round setup posits the audience as various kinds of crowds around the characters.
The downside is that they were clearly instructed to not give any kind of reactions outside the musical numbers, which kills a lot of the jokes. You could also tell the difference between extras in the crowd and audience members simply by looking at their clothing; a lot of the studio audience wore modern-day clothing. Thanks to starting at 7 PM, there's quite a bit of it in "Greased Lightning," a song notorious for its filthy lyrics that fly by so fast many people don't catch them on their first listen.

The scene is included as an extra on the 40th anniversary home video release, and Kleiser hopes to make another attempt at colorizing the footage that is effective enough for the footage to be inserted into the film as he originally intended by the time the film's 50th anniversary comes in Grease is now the fourth highest-grossing live action musical.
