It's the Spring of 1957 and Bobby goes to pick up his date. He's a pretty
hip guy with his own car. When he goes to the front door, the girl's father
answers and invites him in.
"Carrie's not ready yet, so why don't you have a seat?," he says. "Uh, thank
you, sir." says Bobby. Carrie's father asks Bobby what they're planning to
do. Bobby replies politely that they will probably just go to the soda shop
or a movie.
Carrie's father responds "Why don't you two go out and screw? I hear all
the kids are doing it." Naturally, this comes as a quite a surprise to
Bobby, so he asks Carrie's Dad to repeat it.
"Yeah," says Carrie's father, "Carrie really likes to screw; she'll screw
all night if we let her!" Well, Bobby doesn't quite know what to think, but
his plan for the evening is beginning to look pretty good.
A few minutes later, Carrie comes downstairs in her little poodle skirt and
announces that she's ready to go. Almost breathless with anticipation,
Bobby escorts his date out the front door.
About 20 minutes later, Carrie rushes back into the house, slams the door
behind her, and screams: "Dammit Daddy! IT'S CALLED THE TWIST!"
