Grease is the word!

Danny Zuko

  • Uh, I'm not very hungry; just gimme a double Polar Burger wit' everything and a cherry soda wit' chocolate ice cream.
  • Why, this car could be System-matic, Hyyyyydro-matic, Ultra-matic. Why, its Greased Lightning!
  • [singing] I got chills
    They're multiplyin'
    And I'm losing control
    Cause the power you're supplying.
    It's electrifyin'!

Betty Rizzo

  • [singing] Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee,
    Lousy with virginity.
    Won't go to bed 'til I'm legally wed.
    I can't, I'm Sandra Dee.
  • [singing] Elvis! Elvis!
    Let me be.
    Keep that pelvis far from me!
  • [singing] I don't steal and I don't lie.
    But I can feel and I can cry;
    A fact I bet you never knew.
    But to cry in front of you,
    That's the worst thing I could do.
  • [singing] I don't drink...or swear...I don't rat my hair...
  • [singing] [Panda falls on Betty] Keep your filthy paws off my silky drawers.
    Would you pull that crap with Annette?

Frenchy

  • Sandy, Sandy! Beauty is pain.
  • [to Sandy] Men are rats, listen to me, they're fleas on rats, worse than that, they're amoebas on fleas on rats. I mean, they're too low for even the dogs to bite. The only man a girl can depend on is a daddy.

Principal McGee

  • If you can't be in athletics, at least be an athletic supporter.
  • We have pictures of you so-called mooners. And just because the pictures aren't of your faces doesn't mean we can't identify you. At this very moment those pictures are on their way to Washington where the FBI has experts in this type of identification. If you turn yourselves in now, you may escape a Federal charge.
  • Attention seniors. Before the merriment of commencement commences, I hope that your years with us here at Rydell have prepared you for the challenges you face. Who knows? Among you there may be a future Eleanor Roosevelt or a Rosemary Clooney, and among you young men, there may be a Joe DiMaggio, a President Eisenhower, or a Vice-President Nixon. But you will always the glorious memories of Rydell High. Rydell forever. Bon voyage.

Others

  • Sonny: When a guy picks a chick over his buddies, something's gotta be wrong. Come on, guys let's go for some pizza.
  • Vince Fontaine: You Jims and Sals are my best pals, and to look your best for the big contest, just be yourself and have a ball, that's what it's all about after all! Just remember, it doesn't matter if you win or lose, it's what you do with your dancin' shoes.
  • Leo, Scorpions member: The rules are... there ain't no rules!

Sonny: I was just going for a walk.
Principal McGee: You were just dawdling weren't you?
Sonny: Yes, ma'am
Principal McGee: That is no way to start a new semester, Mr. LaTierri!
Sonny: [mumbles]
Principal McGee: Perhaps a session of banging erasers after school would put you on the right track.
Sonny: Yes, ma'am [laughs nervously]
Principal McGee: Well? Are you just going to stand there all day?
Sonny: No, ma'am. I mean, yes, ma'am, I mean...

Rizzo: You pig!
Kenickie: Oh, I love it when you talk dirty!

Jan: You mean you're dropping out?
Frenchy: I don't look at it as dropping out! I look at it as a very strategic career move.

Frenchy: I wish I had a guardian angel to tell me what to do. You know, like Debbie Reynolds had in Tammy. What do you think?

Sandy: Danny, get off me!
Danny: Come on, Sandy, what's the matter with you? I thought I meant something to you!
Sandy: Meant something to you?! You think I'm going to stay here with you in this? This sin wagon? You can take this piece of tin!
[throws his class ring at him and runs away]
Danny: Sandy, you just can't walk out of a drive-in!
Sandy: Well, just watch me!

Coach Calhoun: [Danny is trying out for wrestling and smoking a cigarette] All right, let's trying cutting it to two packs a day. Now, you have to change.
Danny: Well, yeah. That's why I'm here, ya know? To change.
Coach Calhoun: No, I mean your clothes.
Danny: Oh.

Coach Calhoun: [after Danny has failed at wrestling, basketball, and baseball, getting in fights each time] Well, you know, there are a lot of other sports that don't require any physical contact.
Danny: Oh, yeah? Like what?
Coach Calhoun: Like, uh... track!
Danny: What do you mean, like running?
