Trivia

Music Theatre International (MTI), the group that licenses theatre organizations to perform musicals like West Side Story, strictly forbids changes of any kind to the original book, music or story. The company's website page for West Side Story specifically notes, under the "Show Billing" tab, that the cast and crew are not allowed to add the male Sharks to "America" or switch the places of the songs "Cool" or "Gee, Officer Krupke". The company notes that the license is not giving permission to perform the movie version in any way. The performance that the school in the show presents would be considered a violation of contract in real life. See more »

Goofs

Artie says at the beginning of the episode that the musical is just days away. However, in the next scene, Rachel and Blaine have their scripts. Shouldn't they be way off book right now? See more »

Quotes

Tina Cohen-Chang: Losing my virginity was a great experience for me. Because I was with someone I love. It happened in summer. Mike and I had talked about it for a while, because we knew that the first time was gonna be something we wanna remember forever. And when that moment came, we just knew. It was right, it wasn't rushed... It was amazing. He's my first love, and I'll always look back at that moment as absolutely perfect. No regrets.
