The lead into the bowling song is everyone in the bowling alley yelling "shoot the ball!". Has that ever been said while bowling before or since?
It already feels a little weird that the T-Birds are also on the football team. But based on the fact that they are pushing Sid Caesar around on the tackling sled they are either offensive or defensive linemen. I don't think Rydell won a single game that year.
When Michael is playing the piano for the talent show rehearsals it is the laziest fake playing I have ever seen in a movie. He literally just keeps his hands above the same keys the entire time and lifts his hands up and down. And speaking of him being the piano player. Was it not an issue that he disappeared right before the talent show?
When Stephanie goes into her fugue state during the talent show she imagines she is singing a duet with the Mystery Rider. When she is done the crowd goes wild. But what were they seeing exactly? Presumably just her half of the song.

I don't know if they are so much post-virginity, as the focus of youth activity has shifted from the secret to the public. When I was younger, everything interesting that one wished to do was essentially secret. You had to keep the really good stuff from Mom and Dad. We didn't need terms like "Netflix and chill" because broadcasting our sexcapades was something that never would have occurred to us. I literally thought Netflix and chill meant watching Netflix and relaxing, until it was recently explained to me by a younger person. These days, nothing is worth doing unless it is photographed and made public. "Pics or it didn't happen!" While I can't say for certain how this is related to the shifting attitude towards virginity because I'm not swimming in the shark pool of teenage-hood anymore, I would be VERY surprised if there was no connection whatsoever.

Just one omission: No Christopher McDonald movie should be discussed with out at least a mention of him. He played Goose McKenzie, one of the T-birds in this one. He went only to play memorable villains in such films as Happy Gilmore, Fatal Instinct, Dutch, and Dirty Work.
Again great episode, guys.

Yeah, but that's not really the same thing as being trans.
edit: I stand by this one.

I think being a little dangerous about a guest is OK if it's wrapped in a joke. Especially on a board for a show where they joke about Matthew Broderick's soul being gone and his life force being sapped by his wife. I can't say any more about the subject without just outright insulting a previous guest, so I won't.
