EXT. THE BEACH - DAY
It's 1965. The beach is littered with surfboards. The girls wear bikinis
that do not expose their navels. The boys wear long surfing shorts.
LIZZIE (16, cute, little high school student) sits on the beach wearing Audrey Hepburn sunglasses.
MIDGE (16, her best friend) approaches and sits down.
Hey, Lizzie. Your glasses are far out!
Thanks, Midge. Your swimsuit is way happening.
OPENING CREDITS THEME SONG
END THEME SONG. BACK TO THE BEACH.
plays over some psychedelic flower patterns.
She's everyone's favorite pal
She's my best friend's gal
I've got a secret or two
Gonna tell him to find someone new
I'll get on my surfboard and hang ten
She'll know I'm the one for her when
Sees my far out style
Stay with me for a while
I want her to be my steady girl
C'mon now Lizzie, give me a whirl
I'll get you a soda after school
Lizzie, over you I'm a fool.
CHIP (18, surfer guy) comes over carrying a surfboard.
Hey, Lizzie. Hey, Midge. Lizzie, are you going to the dance with me?
Wait just a dingy minute!
Why are you being such a wiggy bird?
CUE MUSIC. They dance and are joined by several other teenagers who have appeared.
CHIP is dreamy, Liz. Why'd you give him the cold shoulder?
Don't you know anything, Midge? Boys like mystery.
Far out. Let's cue the music and inexplicably dance here on the beach.
