Violet is there and wants her dance card filled. Get away ho! Suddenly some guy named Marty comes out of nowhere and asks George to dance with his little sister – Mary, queen of soda shops! George looks up and sees Mary and holy crap! It’s Donna Reed! George is smitten. Mary is talking to the only Jew in town but makes eyes at George. He tells Jewboy to stop annoying people.
Time for the Charleston contest! Live it up – next year is going to suuuuuck. Mary and George start to dance and Jewboy decides to get some revenge. He opens the floor of the gym to reveal a pool underneath. This scene always freaked me out because I think about being stuck in that pool with the floor closing over me and I have to call and remind my parents to cremate me because I’m too claustrophobic to be buried. Torch me and toss me!
George and Mary are dancing dangerously close to the edge without realizing it and they think everyone is cheering because they are good. No, it’s because you are BLIND. They end up falling in the pool but continue to dance, so everyone else jumps in. Then Carrie shows up, pig blood fills the pool, the floor closes up and she kills everyone!
No, the evening ends much more geekily. George is dressed in an old football uniform and Mary is in a huge bathrobe that she has decided not to tie but instead hold shut. I guess for easy removal? They are singing “Buffalo Girls” which I believe is now the name of a lesbian indie band, right?
George stoops to pick up a rock to throw at the Old Granville house. Is everything titled “Old”? Mary doesn’t want him to throw a rock at it because she wants to live in it. He says make a wish and throw the rock and when it hits a window he says he’s wished for a whole hatful of wishes, which we all know you are not allowed to do! No using a wish to wish for more wishes!
He tells Mary he wishes to see the world and that he’s getting the hell out of Bedford Falls and never coming back! Mary picks up a rock, makes a wish, and throws the rock right through a window. He asks what she wished for and she says she can’t tell him or it won’t come true. Hope that wish doesn’t float around and land on someone tonight!
