“Grease” is the word once again, as Wednesday was the 40th anniversary of the hit movie’s New York City premiere. To mark the milestone, star John Travolta taught Radio City Music Hall tenant Jimmy Fallon that iconic “You’re the One That I Want” dance from the movie’s grand finale scene.
It was actually Travolta who first introduced the steps to the 1978 film’s choreographer.
“Like in ‘Pulp Fiction,’ I grew up with all these kind of novelty dances,” Travolta said to Fallon. “In ‘Grease,’ they needed a step for that ‘You’re the One That I Want’ at the end. So I said, ‘Well, we used to do the Four Corners — why don’t we do that?'”
The “Tonight Show” host wasn’t about to waste this moment: Fallon asked Travolta if he could teach him the moves. The game guest agreed, making everyone’s night at 30 Rock.

How well did they nail this one? Tell us about it in the comments section, studs.
Travolta’s “Gotti” opens in theaters on Friday.
The “Broken Arrow” baddie plays John Gotti Sr. in the movie about the Gambino crime family boss and his son John Gotti Jr. (played by Spencer Rocco Lofranco). Travolta’s real-life wife Kelly Preston plays John Sr.’s wife Victoria.
Kevin Connolly of “Entourage” fame directs “Gotti.”

Jon Snow’s case is really just the tip of the undoing-on-screen-demises iceberg
Dead is dead is dead. Unless you're on TV. Whether it was planned out carefully over several seasons by writers or thrown in without a solid explanation, small-screen deaths don't always stick. It's not uncommon for a TV character to be resurrected after you were sure, so sure, that they were gone for good. Seriously, the trope has been done to death at this point. Click through TheWrap's gallery to see the best examples. And, it really should go without saying, but spoiler alert.
