  • Quotes

    • Sue: It's kinda like nursing a POW back to health so he's at his strongest when you torture him.

    • Sue: My nose is still filled with the acrid stench of teen vomit.

    • Santana: (talks about Rachel's party on the phone) It sounds awful. Is anybody going?
      Brittany: Let me find out.(calls Artie) Did you hear?
      Artie: Yes. Mercedes just told me.
      Mercedes: Tell them I'll go if they go.
      Artie: Tell them yourself. I ain't no pony express.
      Mercedes: (turns on the phone) You're going, right?
      Santana: Only if there's liquor. Because a Rachel Berry party is not something I can do sober.
      Brittany: But it's Alcohol Awareness Week.
      Santana: Precisely. And I am aware of how much fun alcohol is. Let's ask Puckerman. (calls Puck)
      Puck: You're go for Puck.
      Santana: Noah, it's Santittany and Artcedes. Can your friend score us some wine coolers?
      Puck: No, but his I.D. can.
      Mercedes: Well, if we're all in, it's settled. The Rachel Berry House Party Train Wreck Extravaganza is officially a go.

    • Finn: Hold... Hold on. Uh... Is this song about your headband?
      Rachel: Yes. It's called, "My Headband."
      Finn: Right.
      Rachel: They say you should write about what you know.
      Finn: Well, uh... It's really... interesting, but it's... not... emotional. Or, like, good.
      Rachel: It sucks.
      Finn: Yeah.

    • When Sue gives her speech on the intercom, Becky plays a little xylophone. This is very similar to a scene in >Grease where Principle McGee speaks over the intercom and the secretary plays the xylophone.
