An obvious post, perhaps, but "putting on panties one leg at a time" is
Denise's derivative of "putting on pants one leg at a time," which is a
phrase which (in my recent hearing) implies a sort of Joe Average, ordinary
guy; it might be used to demystify a male authority, as in "Even the Surgeon
General puts on his pants one leg at a time." I thought this was the best
line of the show, even though taken literally both comments are rather vapid.
I mean, unless you are sitting on the bed and put in both feet at once,
one leg at a time seems like the only way to put your pant(ies) on anyway!
TP-freak kudos to the producers for making Denise so wry and sensible.
