Rachel mentions a remake of the movie, Beaches, in a voiceover, saying it wouldn't be complete without the "Bette Midler character". While this wasn't known at the time, a Beaches remake did go on to be produced five years after the airing of this episode, and the character originally portrayed by Bette Midler, CeCe, was played by Idina Menzel, who plays Rachel's biological mom on Glee.

In the "Goodbye" episode, and several others over the first three seasons, Finn holds a picture of and looks at his father in a uniform which clearly has "U.S. MARINES" sewn on it, yet Finn and his mother repeatedly speak about his father as a Soldier in the U.S. Army. While Finn's father may have been a Marine before joining the Army, the writers should have had an actor in an Army uniform for the pictures, not a Marine uniform. See more
