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 Season 3, Episode 5: “The First Time.” Did you catch them all?
Artie: It doesn’t matter if he’s in prison like Gandhi or trapped inside a woman’s body like Chaz Bono or stuck in a wheelchair like me — when a man finds his calling, all is right in his world.
Blaine: Roxy Music makes me want to build a time machine just so I can go back to the ‘70s and give Bryan Ferry a high-five.
Kurt: Number 87: Become CEO of Logo.
Kurt: Number 63: Lay a rose at the birthplace of Noel Coward.
Kurt: And Number 5, alright, this one’s really embarrassing, I wrote this before I met you: “Have relations on a dewy meadow of lilac with Taylor Lautner before he gets fat.”
Cooter: Last week, I told her I had a gift certificate for Applebee’s — she told me fancy restaurants make her nervous.
Finn: I’ve got pound cake — it’s Sara Lee.
Finn: Last time we talked about this, you said you wanted to wait until you won a Tony.
Rachel: Any major award — Emmy, Golden Globe. A People’s Choice award would have gotten you to third base.
Finn: I’ve been saving up for a hotel for us — some place nice, like a Marriott or something.
Kurt: Look, there’s Cher and Tina Turner and... is that Lucy or Reba?
Blaine: That is Ginger from Gilligan’s Island.
Kurt: Because you look like Yogi?
Blaine: Listen, I know you wanted to do it in a field of lilacs with Sting playing in the background and all that, but who cares where we are?
