Did You Know?


Throughout this episode, many characters make reference to Rachel's nose being a result of her Jewish heritage, and contrast it with Quinn's perfect nose. However, in their real lives, Dianna Agron (Quinn) actually is Jewish, while Lea Michele (Rachel) is not (she was raised Catholic although her father is jewish) See more »

Rachel Berry: Why did you bring me here? Is there a sale at Claire's?
Noah 'Puck' Puckerman: I brought you here to knock some sense into you. You won't listen to me, you won't listen to Finn...

Rachel Berry: Is she here?
Kurt Hummel: No, this is the mall in Ohio.

It was so god to see the evil blonde one get her due. She's a bully and mean. Her being outed as a former bully victim makes what she did in S1 and two that much worse. Do not feel sorry for her one bit
