Main Characters in this Episode
Santana Lopez: The only straight I am is straight-up bitch.
Emma Pillsbury: Being a ginger has plagued me my entire life. People say that I smell like copper, can get sunburned indoors at night, and according to recent legend I have no soul.
Santana Lopez: [to Karofsky] Why don't you just settle down and let Auntie Tana here tell you a little story. It's about you. You're what we call a "late in life" gay. You're going to stay in the closet, get married, get drunk to have relations with your wife, have a couple kids, maybe become a state senator or a deacon, and then get caught in the men's room tapping your foot with some paige. And you know what? I accept that about you.
- Goof (continuity error): When Blaine sings the song Somewhere Only We Know to his boyfriend Kurt, at about 1:25 into the video you can see Brittany step down the step twice as the Warblers give their good-byes to Kurt.
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Lauren is talking to Quinn about Quinn's past she doesn't know what Quinn's old nickname was, and Quinn tells her. However on the poster it already has her old nickname on it when Lauren doesn't even know it.
- Throughout this episode, many characters make reference to Rachel's nose being a result of her Jewish heritage, and contrast it with Quinn's perfect nose. However, in their real lives, Dianna Agron (Quinn) actually is Jewish, while Lea Michele (Rachel) is not (she was raised Catholic).
