Personality[]

Marty often tries to act sophisticated, worldly and glamorous. She is generally kind, but can be uninterested in conversations unless they are about her or juicy gossip. In "Summer Nights", she doesn't seem to care about what Sandy is saying, along with Rizzo. Marty is very concerned with appearing mature and not seeming juvenile, as indicated by her embarrassment and disapproval when Jan does silly or childish stuff (such as when Jan splits open a sandwich cookie and eats the icing first.) This is probably due to her romantic life; Marty has many pen-pals who she claims sarcastically to be "hopelessly devoted" to. One of them is a marine deployed to Korea. She’s attracted to older gentlemen, and is flattered by the sophisticated and charming Vince Fontaine flirting with her at the Rydell dance. 

Trivia

  • She is named after Marty Johnson, from Bonanza: The Way Station.
