Dave: (into dictating machine) And now, I'd like to sing a song I first introduced in The Little Show in 1903.

The Little Show was a 1929 play, the first of 11 plays to feature the songwriting team of Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz. The two songs Cha Cha sings in this episode, "You and the Night and the Music" and "Dancing in the Dark," were both written by Dietz and Schwartz.
