  • During "I Won't Dance," Ginger Rogers sings to Fred Astaire: "But when you dance you're charming and you're gentle/ Especially when you do the Continental," referring to the dance in their previous film, Gay Divorcee, The (1934). The two then strike a pose from that number while the band plays a riff.
  • Bugle call: see also Gay Divorcee, The (1934), Follow the Fleet (1936).
