Barney and Jerry go out and get wild together. Jerry is on the dance floor with his tie wrapped around his head. Barney asks him if he's sure he wants to be out there dancing like that. Jerry's response to Barney is, "Sorry small town preacher from the Mid-West, is there a law against dancing?", a reference to the film 'Footloose'.
tells the story of Ren McCormack, an upbeat Chicago teen who moves to a small town, where, thanks to the town's uptight reverend, dancing and rock music has been banned.
