*** They did "Dammit Janet" and "Sweet Transvetite" (albeit "Sweet Transvetite had some alterations), the former being built upon swearing and the second one full of pretty straightforward references to sex (at a level very appropriate for RHPS but not for a high school production, probably). Either their school is wildly inconsistent with the standards for swearing appropriate in their songs, or the SHOW is wildly inconsistent. Not that any high school would have let them do RHPS in the first place.

** This whole thing kind of brings up the question in the first place: Why Ohio? If you're writing for a show (even if you want to avoid setting it in California or Florida or something), you could easily pick a state/area that isn't quite as intense about its climate, that you could replicate much more easily while still getting to do all the things you want. Hell, you could set it just slightly further south and get away from all the raininess/snow and (more so than in Ohio) the winter wardrobes.

*** Which is even worse. If they're really in Ohioan winter, the weather really SHOULD be constantly changing. While it'll never get higher than 65 (usually), nearly every winter there's the whirlwind of days that are ~60s followed immediately by days in the 20s with no warning, including dusting of snow when it seems kind of out of place (because it's actually at the temp for that at night sometimes even when it isn't during the day), and they should all be wearing winter clothes to some degree or another, even on those 65 degree days. (Because, as all Ohioans know, there is no warning and you are purely at the whim of the weather's mood swings.) Oh, and while we're here, it should be raining way more. Just in general.

* It's my personal belief that the New Directions are holding the band members prisoner in that room, only granting them food if they agree to play for them.

*** Actively trying not to overshadow everyone else is completely against Rachel Berry's character.

** Not necessarily. If a school can justify reading the works of Chaucer uncensored, there's no reason why a school vocal group can't sing a song in its original form. High school productions of ''{{Grease}}'' include the mentions of smoking cigarettes and pregnancy plotline, and well as retaining the explicit lyrics that most of the audience will be familiar with from the film rather than the {{Bowdlerised}} version for elementary school. It's not as though the glee club are singing something like Music/NineInchNails' "Closer" uncensored.

** My guess, sloppy writing/ TheyJustDidntCare. This show has a bad habit of focusing more on setting up dramatic moments without thinking about rather or not they make sense or actually fit into the story.

** Likely as a parody of cartoons and tv shows where the same happens. Like in {{Daria}}, where the quarterback and cheerleaders where their uniforms even when shopping on the weekend.

** As of Season 6, the band (or at least the floppy-haired bass player) is STILL at McKinley. Why are they taking so long to graduate? And I don't mean the Glee kids, because that's at least hand-waved in-universe. I mean the backup players who don't speak.
