  • Stating the Simple Solution: Dylan says if he is named the worst dancer, Portia & Spencer shall force him to eta a platter of feline fur Balls, something dangerous to him cause of his allergies. D. J. just tells him not to let Portia's peer pressure force him to do some thing like that.

  • Taking the Bullet: In a way. Dolly deliberately dances badly, meaning she has to eat the platter of fur balls, so Dylan won't have to.
  • You Were Trying Too Hard: Dylan's dancing, to avoid being the worst dancer, is this.
