Abe Lefkowitz, the doorman at The Ritz, asks Gaetano Proclo, "You ever been in a place like this?" Proclo replies, "Oh, sure. We have a Jack LaLanne's in Cleveland." Jack LaLanne (1914-2011) was a bodybuilder who founded the American physical fitness movement. He opened America's first health & fitness club in Oakland, CA, in 1936, and had fitness clubs throughout the USA. (The joke is that Proclo thinks he's checking in to a health club, when in fact it's a gay bathhouse.)
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women.
Googie tells Gaetano before the show that her second number is "Shine On, Harvest Moon". On stage her second number is "Begin the Beguine".
