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 “Prom Queen.” Did you catch them all?
Sue (Jane Lynch): As a going-away present, here’s a spray bottle of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.
Figgins (Iqbal Theba): Junior prom is in one week, and my favorite band canceled.
Schue (Matthew Morrison): What band?
Figgins: Air Supply, William!
Sue: And I would appreciate it if you would not reprise any of the following songs. Number 1, “Run Joey Run.”
Sue: Number 2, the ingenious mash-up of “Crazy in Love” and “Hair.”
Lauren (Ashley Fink): I’ve been to Ann Taylor LOFT, Filene’s Basement, and, like, six Forever 21s, and I cannot find a dress that fits.
Santana (Naya Rivera): Prom is like our Oscars.
Brittany (Heather Morris): Why did we decide to include Kurt [Chris Colfer]?
Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz): Because getting a look past him is like getting a thumbs-up from Joan and Melissa Rivers.
Santana: So Kurt, I think you need a full security detail, which the Bullywhips and I would be more than happy to provide you with — you know, like the Hells Angels when The Rolling Stones performed at Altamont Speedway.
Santana: I’ll be like the law-and-order Eva Peron candidate. Grimace and Stretch Marks won’t stand a chance.
Puck (Mark Salling): So, since you don’t have a date to the prom now, I was hoping you could help me out with Operation Punch and Judy.
Karofsky (Max Adler): Sorry — no burning Liberace mannequins. Over.
Burt (Mike O’Malley): I wore a powder blue tux with a ruffled shirt and a big velour bow tie. I looked like Tony Orlando.
Kurt: My ensemble is an homage to the recent royal wedding and the late Alexander McQueen.
Finn (Cory Monteith): Dude, that rocks! It’s like gay Braveheart.
Sam (Chord Overstreet): Seriously, though, Jesse — what do you think of the bolo tie? Pretty cool, right? Saw Springsteen on the cover of Tunnel of Love album wearing it.
Jesse (Jonathan Groff): I couldn’t even get a job as one of the singing waiters at Johnny Rockets.
Jesse: Quinn, you look stunning — the ghost of Grace Kelly.
Puck: Tora! Tora! Tora! It’s go time.
Santana: As soon as we get to New York, I’m bailing to live in a lesbian colony... or Tribeca.
Sue: You are the worst POW ever! John McCain is rolling over in his grave.
Jesse: [to Finn] This isn’t your girlfriend, so beat it, MJ.
Sue: Prom is over for you, Sugar Ray. You, too, Marvelous Marvin.
Kurt: Eat your heart out, Kate Middleton.
Get ready for next week’s all-new “Funeral”!
