Who Are The Pips? Namedrops and Pop Culture References From Glee Season 2, Episode 16: “Original Song”

Namedrops abound on Glee. More often than not, a famous person's name is used as an insult to take someone down a peg or two — and that's something we totally support! To help you keep it all straight, we've compiled a list of the names and pop culture references deemed important enough to be dropped by Glee characters in “Original Song.” Did you catch them all?

Blaine (Darren Criss): How did you manage to find a Burberry-esque canary cage cover?

Kurt (Chris Colfer): I feel like we’re Blaine and The Pips.

Kurt: Now I know today we need to practice doo-wopping behind Blaine while he sings every solo in the medley of P!nk songs, but I’d like to sing a song for Pavarotti today.

Sue (Jane Lynch): Now I met the drummer for My Chemical Romance at a drum circle, Daytona Beach, spring break, 1996 — we had a brief affair. And when I heard of your song choice for Regionals, well, I was compelled to notify the band about your long-running legal battle with PETA.

Sue: Well, well — if it isn’t Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Fake-Boobs.

Puck (Mark Salling): I know that when I sang “Fat Bottomed Girls” it might have hurt her feelings a little bit, but I think this makes up for it.

Blaine:Candles” by Hey Monday.
Kurt: I’m impressed — you’re usually so Top 40.

Blaine: Watching you do “Blackbird” this week, that was a moment for me about you.

Mercedes (Amber Riley): [Singing “Hell to the No”] Tell me I should eat my Wheaties — you know what? Hell to the no.

Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison): Just think about it — what’s your favorite song of all time?
Brittany (Heather Morris): “My Headband.”
Santana (Naya Rivera): Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughtta Know.”
Puck:What’s Going On” — Marvin Gaye.

Quinn (Dianna Agron): It’s like Groundhog Day with you, Rachel — how many times do you have to make the same mistake to realize it’s not gonna work out?

Sue: The drummer I slept with was that guy from Jimmy Eat World.

Announcer: Recent Tea Party candidate and home-schooler Tammy Jean Albertson.

Tammy Jean Albertson (Kathy Griffin): I Twittered that Obama is a terrorist.

Blaine: We do nursing-home shows all the time, and do you know how many Gaps there are in Ohio? Tons.
