SYFY WIRE Michelle Pfeiffer

Chosen One of the Day: Motorcycle heaven in Grease 2

By Courtney Enlow

If you've never seen Grease 2, literally what are you doing with your life? What is wrong with you? Are you some kind of monster? Just kidding, there's no such person out there.

We've all seen Grease 2 and in fact have it memorized in its entirety for it is far and away the superior Grease film and therefore the following description will not in any way sound strange to you: At one point in the film, Rex Manning possibly dies going over a cliff Thelma and Louise-style, and Michelle Pfeiffer goes into a fugue state mid-talent show and sings to him in motorcycle heaven where he is an angel even though he's not actually dead. He tells her only she can keep their love alive and she must never forget him, even though she does not know his name or that he's secretly the hot British nerd she shares ketchup with, and that he is also — again, and I cannot overstate this — not dead.

Honestly, it's only one of the top five weirdest things about this movie.

The wildest thing about this scene — and the whole thing is utterly bananapants bonkers buckwild — is that Pfeiffer's Stephanie Zinone (feminist icon and hero, I won't hear otherwise) is, in fact, dressed as a Christmas tree while all this is happening. She stops singing her Christmas tree song, starts singing an ode to her presumed dead (extreme Janet voice: not dead) boyfriend she's met twice, a song that is a duet with the imaginary dead/not-dead-at-all boyfriend who is also presumably still the pianist for said talent show, and then she wins the talent show.

This talent show, mind you, has taken the entire school year to put together and her friend Sharon has poured blood, sweat, and tears into this INSANE number and then Stephanie disappears into her mind palace and steals the whole thing. AMAZING. 

Keep your Danny Zukos. In this house, we worship Stephanie Zinone, goddess of Motorcycle Heaven.
