** Lima has 10 high schools in it, not counting [=McKinley=] , which isn't real. It was flown in from [[Series/FreaksAndGeeks a suburb of Detroit]], and before that it was in whatever the hell town TheWonderYears takes place in. And after those two it was near NYC, and [[FinalDestination some students were killed in a rollercoaster crash during Graduation Carnival]].

* The show is turning into HighSchoolMusical with slightly better writing. I first got into Glee because it was High School Musical except portrayed realistically, with much better music and writing. Maybe this is just a one-off thing, but Britanny's performance just seemed a little too contrived. I'm willing to write off the unrealisticness of the band and the Piano Man, but that excessively complicated choreography was just too much. I get that it's supposed to be portrayed as a music video, like Mercedes' first audition was, but when you get a huge group performing like that it loses its artistic merit.

*** Emma and Bieste, two adults portrayed as having problems that are shown by them not having lost it yet. They're also [[AManIsNotAVirgin women]].

** I always figured that since we hear in the beginning of the episode that Sebastian's father is a state's attorney, it would be harder to get him charged since his father could lean on the police/judges to get his son off the charges, so ND may have factored that into their calculations. [[RuleOfDrama Or]] [[TheyJustDidntCare something.]] But definitely factoring Daddy Smythe's influence in.

** Considering they sang I Kissed a Girl in an episode about a lesbian coming to terms with her sexuality, [[TheyJustDidntCare it rather seems like they aren't even thinking about their song selections in and out of universe.]]

*** Why was Mike siding with Rachel over his own girlfriend? Because Rachel is the {{DesignatedHero}}ine. Or at least, that's the reason in the writer's room.

Added DiffLines:

** Could Finn have predicted that his comments would be used in a nationally-televised smear campaign? No. Could he have predicted that, in that crowded hallway, there was a possibility that the wrong person might overhear and use that information somehow? Yes, and he should have.

** He was playing a {{Retraux}} flirty-but-sexless "Hi, this is my HeterosexualLifePartner, welcome to our amazing home!" amalgam of different variety special hosts (and narrators). Practically everything he ''did'' was [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar subversively breaking character]], including the diamond necklace subplot. Artie's movie was supposed to fill an entire evening of airtime (the Yule Log video is two to four hours long, I expect a typical Christmas Eve live special to run for at least one hour, if not two), and the part of the show that we saw was only about ten or fifteen minutes long, and Kurt made a comment that the oven wasn't even started yet (in-story) but they had a turkey by the end of it, so there was probably either some DeusExMachina or [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief enough time to make people think they cooked a turkey]]. Also, Rory ''did'' [[ACharlieBrownChristmas go majorly off-script]].
