In "The Mikado", Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo, and Pitti-Sing are shown performing "Three Little Maids from School". The film then cuts to Tony and Gloria racing to the opera house. During this time Tony has time to drive several blocks, crash the cowboy's truck, survey the scene and commandeer an airport limo.
