Trivia

In the beginning of this episode, Emma talks to Will about rekindling old flames. She mentions an incident where she rekindled with her old high school flame, Andy, and three months later, Versace was dead. Emma is referring to Andrew Cunanan, the spree killer whose penultimate kill was the famed Gianni Versace. Darren Criss, who would later join the cast in Season 2 as Blaine Anderson, plays Cunanan in American Crime Story: The Assassination Of Gianni Versace. (2018) See more »

Goofs

While having a conversation with Emma about bringing April Rhodes back, Will states to Emma that "she was only three credits shy of graduation," and he later references that she only needed the Spanish class to graduate. Unlike the college and university level, most high schools do not issue more than one credit for each class. See more »

Quotes

Rachel Berry: Why didn't you tell me Quinn was pregnant?
Finn Hudson: Who told you?
Rachel Berry: Everybody knows but me. I'm the only fool who went out with you and let you kiss me, thinking you actually had feelings for me.
Finn Hudson: But I... I do. Look, yeah, I haven't been totally honest with you, but that's different than lying. Well, maybe it's not that much different, but... but look, I need to get a music scholarship, so I can go to college, so I can get a good job so I can take care of my kid, and I can't do that if you don't come back...
