    • Kenny Ortega: (to Nico) It was beautifully acted, it was beautifully danced, you're the reason why guys dance, you're the reason why guys like to dance.

    • Lara: We can bring out the krump in me... I hope.

    • Tré: (to Izaac) I'm going to be honest and say, you had the most energy in your little video prologue there that we saw when you saw Benji [Schwimmer], so always dance like you're dancing for Benji, always just picture Benji as your partner, just do what you have to do.

    • (to Lisa & Vincent) Mary Murphy: For me, you're already on [the hot tamale] train; it's not first-class tickets yet, but you're on that train!

    • (after Miles does a pelvic thrust for the judges and audience) Mary Murphy: Everybody's just so friendly here in Canada! I don't think I'm ever leaving!

    • (about Natalli and Francis) Rex Harrington: So Mary, I'd like to put the two of them on a new form of transportation, we're going to call it the Sexy Rexy Rocket to the Stars!

    • (to Allie & Danny) Tre Armstrong: So Allie, I want you to now loosen up a little bit when you're doing more of an urban style dance; you've got to feel the beat, ride the beat. Danny, you felt the beat, you rode it all the way to the sunset, my friend.

    • (to Lara & Miles) Rex Harrington: That was charming, that was beautiful, bravo. I felt like I was watching Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

    Trivia (4)

    • Leah: What better place to start [the audition tour] than Toronto? The audition tour, did not, in fact, start in Toronto; it started in Vancouver. Toronto was the second-last city in the five-city tour. The audition tour city dates were as follows: Saturday, April 4, 2009: Vancouver Tuesday, April 7, 2009: Edmonton Tuesday, April 21, 2009: Saint John Mon., Tues., May 18 & 19, 2009: Toronto Tuesday, May 26, 2009: Montreal

    • Jenna Lynn Higgins said she was from Ajax, ON, but was identified by the on-screen caption as being from Toronto, ON.

    • Leah: Join me next Wednesday at 8 on most CTV stations, but check ctv.ca for times in your area, as your Top 14 continue the battle for the title of Canada's favourite dancer. Leah invited viewers to tune in 'next Wednesday' [September 16, 2009], but the Top 14 performance does not air on Wednesday, it airs next Tuesday, September 15, 2009, and the results show, which does air on Wednesday, airs at 7:30 p.m.

    • Rex chose a Stacey Tookey number from the Top 6 show as one of his favourites; in introducing it, Leah said: Leah: This is the story of a woman gone mad and her lover, who realizes that, although he doesn't want to, he must let go. Here with another Stacey Tookey piece are Tara-Jean and Everett. However, the number was danced by Tara-Jean and Vincent, and Leah corrected this afterward.

    • (to Christian Ancheta, who began his audition by ripping off his pants to reveal a spandex-type unitard) Mary: Yeah, it was a lot of fun. I'm glad that you came here with a plan. I dug the fact that you pulled it off and surprised us with the "Blades of Glory" outfit there... Blades of Glory, (2007), is a movie starring Will Ferrell; it is about male ice dancers. As part of their sport, they wear tight, one-piece outfits.
