- Tom: [imitating Charles Boyer] Ah, I love you. When I'm with you, I am what you call, uh, a hep cat. I am hip to the jive. I'm in the groove, darling.
- Toots: Now you're REALLY sendin' me, Jackson.
- Tom: Ah, you set my soul on fire. It is not just a little, uh, spark. It is a flame; a big roaring flame. Ah, I can feel it now. It is burning... burning... burning... hey. [to the audience] Something is burning around here!
- [Tom then realizes what is burning and leaps about screaming. He sees his burned foot]
