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 3: “Asian F.” Did you catch them all?
Santana: [about Mercedes] I mean, she can’t do three steps without puking because she ate at Quiznos before she showed up in this joint.
Schue: And an autographed headshot of Vera Wang: “To Emma — Always marry up!”
Mr. Chang: My grandmother in China knew three English phrases: “Coca-Cola,” “Kiss my grits,” and “Harvard University.”
Beiste: I kicked a fire hydrant when I found out Ace of Cakes was canceled — hence, the crutches.
Beiste: Ballet improves your coordination, it boosts your IQ, and it gets half the NFL on Dancing with the Stars. Boo-ya!
Shane: You think Wonder Woman hugs the Cheetah before the Amazonian smack-down?
Shane: You always made me watch Dreamgirls. You say you’re Beyonce, but on the inside you feel like Effie White.
Santana: And yeah, Kurt here looks like Jimmy Fallon’s butch daughter, but a vote for him would only empower yet another frank ‘n beans.
Beiste: Harvard-Yale, 1968; Bush-Gore, 2000; and now...
Artie: “Out Here On My Own,” from the seminal behind-the-scenes musical, Fame.
Kurt: [to Blaine] If anyone else got Tony, including me, the wrath of Sondheim would fall upon William McKinley like a plague of Shubert Alley locusts.
Mercedes: [to Schue, about Rachel] You give that skinny, Garanimals-wearing ass-kisser everything!
Puck: [about the callback] Screw West Side Story — this is Clash of the Titans!
Beiste: It was one of the hardest decisions of my life, and that includes when I had to sell one of my prize donkeys to pay my gas bill. I sold Kim, but I kept Khloe.
Emma: In the grand tradition of the Special Olympics, everybody wins!
