Trivia

When Emma is providing Kurt and Rachel with college counseling, she says, "Kent State has a wonderful musical theater program and a macabre backstory, so if you're having a bad day, or you don't get the lead in the musical, you can say to yourself 'you know what? Things really could be worse.'" Emma is referring to the incident on May 4, 1970, in which members of the Ohio National Guard fired 67 rounds into a crowd of unarmed college student war protesters on the Kent State campus, killing four students and wounding nine others. This incident is now seen by many historians as a turning point in national attitudes about U.S. involvement in Vietnam. See more »

Quotes

Rachel Berry: High school is where you learn, it's survival of the fittest. She's gonna drag the New Directions down and that's not fair for those of us who don't wanna spend our lives rotting in this insignificant town! You said that you'd do anything to get us to Nationals. She is gonna keep us from winning that elusive crown, if anything, she's gonna kill all of our chances!
