Quotes

Frances "Gidget" Lawrence: How can you win? You thump your way up to the top of the biggest mountain and ipso cripso, there's a bigger one laughing in your face. But still, I think I agree with Plato. Life is a gas.

The Not-So-Great Kahuna
5 July 2017 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

The kids on the beach are spellbound by the surfing of The Great Kahuna (Martin Milner, "Adam-12", "Route 66"). His old flame Buff (Julie Parrish, "Good Morning, World") comes after him, and he has Gidget (Sally Field) to pose as his lover. Buff leaves after an argument and Kahuna tells Gidget they are now maluna koalakekua- "connected forever in the design of the gods". Gidget falls in love with him, constantly daydreaming. Gidget's suspecting father (Don Porter) comes down to the beach and talks with Kahuna. She tells her father that she adores Kahuana and wants to live the free and easy, cool lifestyle with him. Kahuna arrives at the house in a suit and says his real name is Cassius Cobb. His ideas have changed to wanting to settle down in an idyllic suburban family life, throwing Gidget for a loop. Now it's her turn.
