While on the beach in Florida our heros, on seeing a large crowd, are told by a very beautiful blonde that they are just watching the sun set. She then appears throughout the Florida montages, "Sweet Freedom" playing in the background, most notably on the scooter ride and boat scenes. She also appeared in the Micahel Jackson video "Black or White" doing the torso morphs. Her name is Meg Register, at least it was when we attended school together in Falls Church, Virginia. She was a natural platinum blonde and had always said she would be in a movie!
