The movie "The Little Mermaid" holds special meaning for Zetas.

I thought the movie was filmed entirely in Boston?

The movie was filmed in and around MIT and Harvard, plus (I think) Bunker Hill Community College. I don't recall any fraternity references, but then I only saw it once.

Oh, I seem to recall an episode of "Friends" where Rachel mentions that she was a Kappa when she sees a group of women wearing her sorority letters (can't recall if it was actually Kappa Kappa Gamma, though).

Actually I think it was a fictional sorority (sort of)... Kappa Kappa Delta.

I remember seeing it and going "heyyyy, I wonder which one they're making fun of!"

About Rachel from "Friends"...I recall her talking about a sorority and I do believe the first two letters were Kappa Kappa, but I am almost positive that they did not use Kappa Kappa Gamma. I wish I could remember the third letter that was on the girls shirt that snubbed her, but I am drawing a blank!

I thought so.

There have been several movies filmed in and around UofT though.

To my knowledge there is no AOII in a book or a movie. Now there is that C.Ricci film, Pumpkin, where they are called AOPi's, but their letters are Alpha Omega Pi. That holds no special meaning to Alpha Omicron Pi's.

This is random but there is a restaurant in New Orleans who uses dinnerwear with sheafs of wheat on them.....

Legally Blond, the book, had the name Delta Gamma as El's sorority. The house in the movie was a DG house as well.

Chi Phi is mentioned in American Pie 2...well, it was, but then it got edited out.

You can catch it in the "Outtakes" section of the DVDs though.

Fannie Flagg has written a couple other books, and they're equally good. "Standing in the Rainbow" is very good mind candy!

[/hijack]

In Florence King's books, she always mentions that she was in a sorority, but deactivated. Does anyone know which sorority?

the character of "carol holywell" in the willie morris novel "the last of the southern girls" is based on a real-life "miss ole miss" chi omega.

if you're interested in southern fiction, morris had a wonderful way of capturing a moment. check out this article about how the author quietly observed a group of phi mu's on bid day. </end book nerd>

I too think it was Kappa Kappa Delta. Rachel saw them in the hallway and said hello and they ignored her. Also, when Winona Rider was on, weren't they supposedly sorority sisters? I remember her asking Phoebe if she had ever joined a sorority and Phoebe made up some weird name. Anyone else remember this?

From http://www.friends-tv.org/zz604.html

Rachel: Oh, hey, look! There's some Kappa Kappa Deltas! I was a Kappa! Hey sisters!

[no response]

Rachel:Wow, we really are bitches.
