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?
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.
