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 »


When all of the New Directions girls are lined up to get pills from Terri, there are two girls at the end of the line that are supposed to be Brittany and Santana, but they are not. This becomes increasingly obvious when, at the other end of the line, standing next to Rachel, is the real Santana! (at around 46 mins) The whole line of girls can be seen - seven total, with fake Brittany, fake Santana, Mercedes, Tina, Quinn, Rachel, and real Santana. See more »


Finn Hudson: I'm losing it. I'm tired all the time-I can't keep my eyes open. I know how lucky I am; captain of the football team, glee stud. I know I should be excited about Quinn. She's hot, popular, she's carrying my baby and all, but I can't get Rachel out of my head. She kinda freaks me out in a Swimfan kinda way, but she can really sing and her body is smoking-if you're not into boobs. My body's a mess. I found a hair on my ear the other day and I have to rub biofreeze on my shins a couple times a ...

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...
