Grease

During a 1950's summer, good girl Sandy and greaser Danny fall in love until Sandy has to return home to Australia at the end of summer. By a twist of fate, Sandy moves back to the US and unknowingly attends the same high school as Danny. When her new friends introduce her to him again, he acts cool for his friends and makes her angry. The whole movie goes back and forth between him getting her back, and then losing her again, all leading up to when Danny, and his gang the T-birds, consisting of Sonny, Putzie, and his best friend, Kenickie, race Kenickie's car against Leo who is from a rival gang, whoever wins gets the loser's car. Can Danny win both the race and Sandy's heart?

Question: Can anybody explain why the T-Birds didn't see each other all summer? Even if Kenickie had a job, wouldn't he still be around after work?

Answer: Well, Danny was out of town, at the beach. It's quite possible that the rest of T-Birds didn't live close enough to each other to see each other during the summer. Also, they may have all had jobs, or been travelling with their families. It's also possible that they DID see each other, although maybe not as "T-Birds". When they saw each other on the first day of school, though, they were Seniors, and they were ready and excited to be T-Bird seniors.

Another possible reason is that not all of them were allowed to see friends during the summer. I had a couple of classmates whose parents were strict about them focusing on schoolwork and/or getting a job. No phone calls or visiting friends on the weekends or during summer: "You can see your friends at school."

Do you really think any of the T-Birds had strict parents?

In regards to not living close enough to each other, it is worth mentioning that having access to a vehicle was much less common compared to nowadays.
