(after Rachel walked out of rehearsals because she didn't get the solo)
Artie: The more times she storms out of rehearsal, the less impact it has.
Sue: I'm tired of hearing people say, I'm riddled with this disease, or I was in that tsunami. Shake it up a little! There's really no difference between a stadium full of cheering fans and a crowd screaming abuse at you. They're both just making a lot of noise.
Puck: Well call the Vatican! We got ourselves another immaculate conception!
Finn: I got this at the school library. Did you know you could just borrow books from there. All of them... except the encyclopedias.
Rachel: Just admit it. You don't like me very much.
Will: That's not true. I am your biggest--and sometimes your only--fan.
Will: This was you. You have always been out to get me.
Sue: Well if I was out to get you, I'd have you pickling in a mason jar on my shelf by now.
Sue: Boy the only thing missing from this place is a couple dozen bodies limed and rotting in shallow graves under the floorboards.
Sandy: (refers to dolls) I've been collecting since 1961.
Sue: Well isn't this just lovely and normal.
Coach Tanaka: Can you do that with a game on the line, and ten gorillas bearing down on you wanting nothing more than to taste your sweet virgin blood?
Kurt: Sounds like fun. Can I have my music?
Coach Tanaka: If you can kick like that, you can wear a tutu for all I care.
Coach Tanaka: The next player that can get a football between those uprights will get his job.
Kurt: Hi. I'm Kurt Hummel, and I'll be auditioning for the role of kicker.
Coach Tanaka: Six games and our kicker is zero for twelve in field goal attempts. As most of you statistically minded people know, that sucks!
Finn: Put your helmet on.
Kurt: It'll mess up my hair.
Rachel: Natalie Wood was a Jew you know. I've had a very deep personal connection to this role since the age of one.
Kendra: Dishonesty is food to a marriage! It will die without it!
Kendra: I'm just making it sound worse than it is to make him feel guilty, and then you have him by the balls for the rest of his life.
Kendra: Your wife is going to be pushing a watermelon out of her boyhowdy in five months. She doesn't need nice, she needs dolomite!
Will: I can be tough.
Kendra: Of course you can sweetie.
Kendra: Giving birth is not like how it is in the movies. It is bloody and beastual, and you get poop all over your cowboy boots.
Kurt's Father: What are you wearing?
Kurt: It's a unitard. Guys wear them to workout nowadays.. do sports. They wick sweat from the body.
Kurt: Yeah, all the guys in football wear them. Very jock chic.
Sue: I'd love to stay and chat, but I've got a satellite interview. That's lingo again.. for an interview via satellite.
Sue:(Explaining that people should be motivated to better themselves) I'll often yell at homeless people 'Hey, how's that homelessness working out for you? Give not being homeless a try'.
Coach Tenaka:(Talking about the football team) We gave up our pride when we lost to that school for the deaf.
Coach Tenaka: You're up, kid. You make this and we win. You make this and you die a legend.
Kurt: Can I pee first?
Puck:(To a member of the opposing football team) Hey, ankle-grabber, I had sex with your mother. No seriously...I cleaned your pool and then I had sex with her in your bed. Nice Star Wars sheets.
Kurt: I'm gay.
Kurt's Dad: I know. I've known since you were three. All you wanted for your birthday was a sensible pair of heels.
Kurt: Night time skin care is a big part of my post-game ritual.
Sue: We're giving everyone a chance to think they're a star. We're providing opportunities, we're opening doors, find your voice...stomp that yard...all that crap.
Terri (To Quinn): Are you taking pre-natal vitamins? You need to, or your baby will be ugly.
Quinn:(To Puck) I had sex with you because I got drunk on wine coolers and felt fat that day.
Sandy: I'm living in a cocoon of horror. Yesterday I ate nine cans of aerosol whip cream.
Sue:(Discussing caning): And to the naysayers who say you can't strike children on their bare buttocks with a raw bamboo stick I say YES WE CANE.
Terri: If I tell you something, do you promise not to tell anyone?
Kendra: Oh my God. Is the baby black?
Kurt: My body is like a rum chocolate soufflé...if I don't warm it up right, it doesn't rise.
Kurt: Finn, I needed to ask you something...
Finn: Thanks, but I already have a date to the prom. But I'm flattered, I know how important dances are to teen gays.
Kurt: I'm not gay.

So many teens believed the hot tub myth that Quinn told Finn about how she supposedly got pregnant by him that after the episode aired there was a note posted on Glee's Facebook page called "As a Follow-up to Last Week's Episode "Preggers" ...you can not get pregnant from a hot tub." Not only does it clear up that pregnancy myth but many more.
Rachel says she feels a special connection with Natalie Wood in the role of Maria in West Side Story, but all of Wood's singing for the film was dubbed over by Marni Nixon, a talented songstress who also dubbed for Debra Kerr in The King and I and Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady. Nixon's name never appeared in the credits of any of these films. Also, Natalie Wood is not Jewish as alluded to by Rachel. This is a very common mistake people have made, because of several roles Ms. Wood played. She was actually a member of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Sue: Yes, you cane.
This is a reference to "Yes, you can", the catchphrase Barack Obama used during the presidential campaign in 2008. The goal was to imply that Obama wanted to bring back hope and that everything would be possible in a new America.
The background music for Figgins' ad comes from the Bollywood song "Didi Tera Deewar Deewana" ('Sister, your brother-in-law's crazy') from the 1994 blockbuster hit Hum Aapke Hain Kaun...! (Who Am I To You?)
In this episode Terri admits to her sister that there is a secret regarding her baby and she assumes that she means the baby is part African American.
