Who Is Ethel Merman? Namedrops and Pop Culture References From Glee’s “Funeral”

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 “Funeral.” Did you catch them all?

Finn (Cory Monteith): We killed it last year at Regionals with “Faithfully.”

Sue (Jane Lynch): Your nickname is Panda Express.

Sue: Because if I was being honest with you, Eddie Munster and Herman Munster, I don’t know how to deal with this.

Jesse (Jonathan Groff): Do you know what happens in Vocal Adrenaline when someone dies during a number? They use them as a prop, like Weekend at Bernie’s.

Sue: They volunteered, and I only agreed on the condition that Frankenteen and Lady Trousers help me clean out Jean’s room at the nursing home.

Santana (Naya Rivera): My name is Santana Lopez, and I will be singing Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black.”

Kurt (Chris Colfer): I’m Kurt Hummel, and I’ll be singing “Some People” from Gypsy.

Jesse: Then you must know that that song was done to great fanfare by such Broadway legends as Merman, Lupone, Bernadette.

Rachel (Lea Michele): Hi, my name is Rachel Berry, and I’ll be singing the most difficult song I’ve ever sung.
Schue (Matt Morrison): Great — what song?
Rachel: Barbra’s closing number to my favorite movie, Funny Girl.

Kurt: You told us that Willy Wonka was Jean’s favorite movie.
