- The title of this episode is a reference to the part of lyrics from the jazz standard song "I Won't Dance" by Jerome Kern.
- After a 2-week break since the last episode, this episode was aired together with Can't Dance, Don't Ask Me on the same night.
- Throughout the episode, Kelly is depicted as having no interest in dance. In reality, Christina Applegate has an extensive background in dance. She was also an original member of the female dance ensemble, The Pussycat Dolls and served as a guest judge for the FOX dance competition show, So You Think You Can Dance.
- Kelly dances to the song "Fever". Katey Sagal later covered the song for the 2017 TV remake of Dirty Dancing, in which she played the role of Vivian.
- The song that plays on a record when Steve tries to teach Kelly is "Anything Goes" by Cole Porter from the 1934 musical of the same name.
- The song that plays when Kelly dances is "Fever" by Little Willie John, made famous when covered by Peggy Lee.
- Bundy Living Room/Kitchen
- High School Auditorium
- When Kelly and Bruno are dancing, a close up shot of Bud is shown, watching them dance before one of the Ganaywick sisters grabs him from behind and starts to kiss him as he reels back in horror. Yet when the camera pans around the stage as they continue to dance, Bud can be clearly seen standing behind the curtain by himself, watching the performance while scratching the record, which should have affected the song if it actually was playing music at that point.
