Bradley Samuel McKenzie, more commonly known as Goose, is a character in the movie Grease 2. He's a member of the 1961 era T-Birds, and his girlfriend is Rhonda Ritter.

He's the T-Bird's second-in-command. A couple inches taller than Johnny Nogerelli, fairly well built, lanky, and a totally mischievous wise-ass. However, he had a habit of parroting Johnny's every word or command, so he was a follower, but a pretty cool one. He wore more conventional `cool' clothes; Blue jeans, a gray shirt, and a black cloth and leather jacket with gray lining, with the T-Birds emblem / logo stitched on the back. And he has lived up to his nickname - In Ms.Yvette Mason's class, he `Goosed' the tush of Olivia Jones.

It could be assumed that, as being a senior in September 1961, that he was a freshman during the 1958-1959 Grease semesters.

He and Johnny were generally less receptive of Michael Carrington, a `nerd' in comparison to the cool crowd. In the Bowl-A-Rama, after Stephanie Zinone's unexpected lip-slam (kiss) on Michael, when Michael politely asked of it was too late to joint the game, Goose snapped "You want somethin'?!" in a less-than-friendly tone.

However - after Steph reamed Michael (Cool Rider (Song)) - Louis DiMucci enlisted Michael's help with his homework, paying him, setting him on the course to becoming who would later be known as Lone Rider. Goose soon enlisted Michael's help with his classwork, meeting with Michael under the south end of the west bleachers. He paid Michael off for one essay, then asked Michael if he could handle a couple history assignments as well, including his "William The Conqueror" essay.

As for the T-Birds' participation of the June Moon Talent Show, Goose's reasons for performing were simple - he wanted the 10 Roy Orbison albums offered in the 100 LP record grand prize.

Later, when Lone Rider was twice seen with Steph, Goose was as ornery as Johnny.

Davey: That's the dude who popped Balmudo!!

Goose: And look who he's `Poppin' now!

The night of the Talent Show, they saw Lone Rider with Steph again, and Goose exclaimed angrilly, "JOHNNY?! IT'S THAT GUY!!"

After the T-Birds won the Boy's division of the talent show, he was disappointed to know that the half of the 100 LPs they received were the classical artists (like Ti-ckok-ski and Choppin' and the Greatest Hits of Bee-Thoven).

Although Johnny's loyal follower, after Lone Rider wiped out the Cycle Lords - again - and revealed himself as Michael, first Davey Jaworski then Louis came to Michael's defense, and Goose stepped up, "You know, Lou's got a point about Davey's point, Johnny...", accepting that Michael was T-Bird material. He is portrayed by Christopher MacDonald.

Note: The William Rotsler Grease 2 novelization has Goose portrayed as - in the film - parroting his superior, but Rotsler makes Goose come off as macabre and nasty at the climax of the Dead Man's Curve - joking about going down the trench to view the (Lone Rider)'s remains.

    Connection:

In the Disney movie `Lemonade Mouth', Christopher MacDonald played Mr. Brenigan, the hard-nosed Principal of the main cast's high school, Mesa High. At the end, he realized the kids were good musicians and backed off of his dislike of their music. He showed interest in Ms. Reznik, and confessed to her that he was once a rebellious teen. Perhaps a Grease 2 reference.

    Of possible futures (apocryphal information - made up):

Goose couldn't successfully strike up a deal with Rhonda to part with her Roy Orbisons (she owed him for the "You beak will still be turnin' down" remark on the first day of their senior year). So Goose took to listening to the classical records - really listening.

The music opened up parts of his mind that he never had before.

With his newfound intelligence and wisdom, he breezed through college - he still had a sense of humor, though, you can't erase that. Years down the line, his and Rhonda's sons and daughters were raised under their tutelage, as well as coolness pointers from Johnny and Paulette, and Michael, and his wife Steph, and their kids. They later attended Rydell, then select colleges.

The McKenzie-Ritter line continued well into the 24th century, when Goose's great-great-great-great-grandson Max McKenzie fathered Steph McKenzie, who married into the Castillo family, and had a son, Richard Castillo, who was a spitting image of Grease 2's Bradley Samuel "Goose" McKenzie. Richard Castillo served on the ill-fated USS Enterprise NCC-1701-C, when it was lost at Narendra III, defending a Klingon outpost from the Romulans.
