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 “Blame It on the Alcohol.” Did you catch them all?
Figgins: Just listen to any hit by pop sensation “Key-dollar sign-ha.”
Will: You mean Ke$ha?
Sue: Oh, Will, here’s the book by Bill W. outlining the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Rachel: They are on the Rosie O’Donnell cruise.
Puck: So, uh, party this Saturday? I’ll bring the beer ball.
Rachel: And I know that we have some unresolved feelings, but like my two new role models Carole King and Gerry Goffin, I think it’s important that we just put them aside and just stay focused on our mission, which is just to write an amazing song to win Regionals with.
Rachel (singing “My Headband”): Wrapped right around my melon, you’re a product like Magellan...
Rachel: How am I supposed to write a song like Joni Mitchell or Carole King? They’ve lived.
Artie: Tell ‘em yourself. I ain’t no Pony Express.
Kurt: So this is your dads’ Oscar room.
Rachel: We haven’t even played Celebrity!
Rachel: How am I supposed to write “Both Sides, Now” if I can’t even throw a party?
Lauren (to Puck): Who told you that hairstyle was cool — Geronimo?
Santana: Those trouty Aerosmith lips belong to me.
Santana: It’s not a Big Red commercial.
Burt: What the hell is a shirred egg?
Santana: I caught a whiff of hairspray and went full Linda Blair in the girls’ bathroom.
Puck: Every commercial during NASCAR is for beer.
Rachel: We saw Love Story at the Revival Theatre — we even dressed up as the characters.
Rachel: Our lips spent the evening mouthing Ali MacGraw’s dialogue.
Kurt: Look — I don’t doubt that you and Blaine would have a jolly good time shopping at Burberry and arguing who would make the better Rum Tum Tugger.
Will: Wow — your cologne is just really strong then.
Figgins: It’s Drakkar Noir!
Sue: Then what’s with the Corey Hart imitation?
Burt: You know, I sat through that whole Brokeback Mountain — from what I gather, something went down in the tent.
Figgins: Unfortunately, Kitty Dukakis could not be here because of disinterest.
Rachel: There’s some brandy and vermouth and port wine and scotch in here, and also a little bit of Kool-Aid and some crumbled up Oreos.
Figgins: And now performing the hit single “Tik and Also Tok” by rapper “Key-dollar sign-ha,” the New Directions.
Santana (to Will): How about you crack a Four Loko, Count Boozy Von Drunk-a-Ton?
