Sue says, "I'm not an American citizen. I was born in the Panama Canal zone. But I managed to get a passport. And run for office twice." This is a reference to Arizona Senator John McCain, who was born in the Panama Canal Zone and who ran for the presidency of the United States in 2000 and 2008. See more »


Terri says that the Pseudoephedrine products are "simple over the counter" items that you can get in the store with no problem. Actually, the US regulates the sale of pseudoephedrine products, limiting a person to how much they can by in the store. Most stores scan the license in store and it would prevent Terri from getting as many boxes as she did, unless she bought some herself as well. See more »


Sue Sylvester: [Writing in her journal] Dear Journal. Feeling listless again today. It began at dawn, when I tried to make a smoothie out of beef bones, breaking my juicer.

Vitamin D was a very enjoyable episode of "Glee"
10 October 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Will-in order to keep their spirits up-challenges the boys and the girls to separately by group gender do their own mash-ups-putting two songs together-with the best getting their choice of songs for sectionals. Terri gets a job at the school as the new nurse since the previous one had an accident, actually, Sue-in a manipulative move-tripped the elderly nurse-and made the suggestion to Terri since Sue knew about Will and Emma's closeness at lunchtime. Sue also suggests Coach Ken propose to Emma. Finn has been tired lately so nurse Terri gives some over-the-counter pills which makes him and the other boys very energetic during their number of "It's My Life" and "Confessions". After Kurt reveals to the girls what happened, they also take Terri's pills-well, except pregnant Quinn who gets something lighter-as they get a bit hyper during "Walking on Sunshine" and "Halo". When the principal finds out, he fires Sue and makes Will take on a new co-director, Sue herself! Also, Emma, with some conditions, accepts Ken's proposal...Both the comedy and music were very entertaining here and while I still find Terri very annoying, she also had some moments. Nice to see Rachel extend an olive branch to Finn knowing what an outsider she'll become. Too bad not all the characters are fully developed. Since Fox has extended this series for a full season, maybe they will be after the initial thirteen eps...
