It's a play on the old line "I still put my pants on one leg at a time" which
translates as "Well gosh, I'm just a regular guy". It is generally said in a
display of humility by a man in response to something like "Gee Bill, that was
incredible the way you rushed into that burning building to rescue that family
of ten." In this case, Dennis/Denise is using it to say "Even though I wear
women's clothes, I'm manly enough to appreciate the obvious virtues of a babe
like Audrey."
