Heedlessly disregarding the word "correctly":

You don't really have to put <script></script> within the html 
<head></head>. Lots of people stick it inside the <body>, or even 
sometimes [horrors!] in between the </head> and <body>, and it still 
seems to run javascript.

You didn't hear this from me. We never had this conversation.
