This Spoils the Ending
In the Play In the Movie
   This does not happen Danny tries to become a Jock to get Sandy back
   Sandy and Danny reunite with the song All Choked Up The song is replaced with You're the One That I Want (the song is added in the 2007 Revival though)
   Doody sings Those Magic Changes on his guitar The song is given to Johnny Casino and the Gamblers at the dance
   Sandy starts attending Rydell High instead of Immaculata Catholic high school because her father got into an argument with the Mother Superior about Sandy's patent leather shoes (boys could see up her dress). Sandy starts attending Rydell because her family decides to stay in the U.S. instead of going back to Australia.
   When Rizzo sings "There are worse things I could do" it is directed at Sandy. Rizzo sings "There are worse things I could do" in a different context with the last half of the song directed at Kenickie.
