Jerry (Kelly's character) ended up helping her choose Louis De Muier (sp?) Night of Love.

Burt dances on tables while the bartender verbally tries to make him go away throughout the number that is similar to how Gene Kelly continually bothers Oscar Levant's character who is composing a song on the piano as he is dancing and singing in Oscar's room throughout.
The ending, in which an alternate version of the film is carried out through various mediums of set and dance, is most likely a reference to 'Gene Kelly's famous twenty minute finale in which the same event occurs.
