    • Sue: (to Quinn and Santana) Let met get this straight. The Glee Club got rid of Dakota Stanley. Mr. Schuester is back. And they're busy on a new number, more confident than ever. That is what we call a total disaster, ladies. I'm going to ask you to smell your armpits. (they do as they are requested to) That's the smell of failure. And it's sticking up my office.

    • Will: I hope it's cool me unloading on you like this. I don't want there to be any awkwardness.
      Emma: Oh, no. No, none at all. I mean, you know, especially since we're, um, we're both in relationships now. It's both of us.
      Will: Right.

      Will: Exactly, yeah.

      Sue: You know the way you use your mental illness to help these kids is really inspiring. And I'm shocked you're not married.

    • Sandy: He's here! He's here! Josh Groban is here. Front row, big brown eyes, cute as a buttermilk biscuit. I barfed.

      Ken: Wanna know what I'm feeling? I went over to the YMCA. I only have one pair of long pants, and...

    • Will's Mother: Wow, when did you learn to cook, Terri?
      Terri: It's just hamburger casserole. Watch out for bones.

    • Josh Groban: Now you might be thinking why would a pop star like me come over here and talk to you? Well, let me tell you something, throngs of screaming teenagers don't do it for Josh Groban. No. Josh Groban loves a blousy alcoholic.
      Will's Mother: (belches) You have to forgive me, man, I'm a little bit drunk and I'm afraid I'm not making good choices right now.

    • Will: Sandy, we voted. When you're in the group it's creepy.

    • Will: Sandy, I thought you weren't allowed on campus.
      Sandy: No William, I'm not allowed within fifty feet of children. Besides Henri and I go way back - I got him a job before we even had a shop class. I told Figgins that 'you are going to have a school full of nancies unless you get some hot wood in those teenagers hands'.

    • Howard: Who is Josh Groban?
      Sandy: Who is Josh Groban?! Kill yourself! He is an angel sent from heaven to deliver platinum records unto us. And if he were here right now, I would club you to death with his Critic's Choice Award.
