I won't work anymore. It's either him or me.
Peppy Miller: What I mean is, it's him AND me! Or it's neither of us!
Peppy Miller: Hey, I'm blackmailing you! Get it?
Early on when Peppy dances through her quickie audition she places her purse on the ground immediately to her right. In the next cut, with the surrounding ground space in full view, the purse is nowhere to be seen. Then, dance done, the purse reappears.
The opening credits are styled after the style of opening used in the 1920s and 1930s, complete with technical credits shown the way they would have been then.
