    • Tom Bergeron: (to Kenny) I gotta say, I think your sports background was really obvious when you waved off one of your own dance moves.

And we almost drop the girl, but she has pants and sequins. I pick her up- I'm married already, so I'm just escorting her through the woods-

    • Tom: (to the home audience/camera) Kenny's dance choreography was actually written by Leo Tolstoy.
