When Sandy transfers to Danny's school, she falls in with the Pink Ladies, a group of fast-talking bad girls led by Rizzo (Stockard Channing), a chain-smoking, promiscuous loudmouth.With the Pink Ladies' help, Sandy transforms into a skintight leather-clad bad girl and ends up with Danny, thus reinforcing the message that and dream of being Sandy, of being blonde and peppy and poodle-skirted and lusted after by track stars and bad boys alike.After her parents decide to move from Australia, Sandy enrolls at Rydell and is befriended by Frenchy, who considers dropping out of school to become a beautician.Unaware of each other's presence at Rydell, Danny and Sandy tell their respective groups the accounts of events during the pair's brief romance, without initially mentioning the other's name.But upon rewatching as an adult, it's painfully obvious that the real hero of "I'm gonna get my kicks while I'm still young enough to get 'em," she declares before she sexily shimmies down a drainpipe, with "kicks" in this instance being a clear stand-in for "Kenickie's D."But the contrast goes beyond merely pitting the slut against the virgin.
