    What dating was like in 1957

    It's the summer of 1957 and Harold goes to pick up
    his date, Peggy Sue. Harold's a pretty hip guy with
    his own car and a duck tail hairdo.

    When he goes to the front door, Peggy Sue's mother
    answers and invites him in. "Peggy Sue's not ready
    yet, so why don't you have a seat?"

    Peggy Sue's mother asks Harold what they're planning
    to do. Harold replies politely that they will probably
    just go to the malt shop or to a drive-in movie.

    Peggy Sue's mother responds, "Why don’t you kids go
    out and screw? I hear all the kids are doing it."

    Naturally this comes as quite a surprise to Harold and
    he says, Whaaaat?"

    "Yes," says Peggy Sue’s mother, "We know Peggy Sue
    really likes to screw; why, she'd screw all night if
    we let her!"

    Harold's eyes light up and he smiles from ear to ear.
    Immediately, he has revised the plans for the evening

    A few minutes later, Peggy Sue comes downstairs in
    her little poodle skirt with her saddle shoes, and
    announces that she's ready to go.

    Almost with breathless anticipation, Harold escorts
    his date out the front door while Mom is saying,
    "Have a good evening kids," with a small wink for

    About 20 minutes later, a thoroughly disheveled Peggy
    Sue rushes back into the house, slams the door behind
    her and screams at her mother:

    "Dammit, Mom! It's the Twist! It's called The Twist!"
