* CanonDiscontinuity: This seems to be the case with the season 5 episode, "Previously Aired Christmas." The premise behind the entire episode is that it's an episode that was made last year only to be rejected and replaced with the canonical season 4 Christmas episode "Glee, Actually."

April Kepner appears in that season, who is played by Sarah Drew, who [[RetroactiveRecognition plays Suzy Pepper]]. In season 14, Matthew Morrison (Will Schuester) will have also joined the ''Grey's Anatomy'' cast.

* AdaptationDisplacement: An in-universe example. The lines Finn and Rachel run are from the film version of {{Cabaret}}, suggesting they are putting on an adaptation of that rather than the original stageplay. The songs from the film often do find their way into stage productions of the play in real life, however.

** Just who starred in ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' in the Glee universe? Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth, obviously. Likewise, Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff presumably still starred in ''Theatre/SpringAwakening''. There are just a couple people in Lima, Ohio who sort of look like them.
** In "Grilled Cheesus," Burt mentions that Kurt has a copy of Grey's Anatomy season 6. April Kepner appears in this season, who looks suspiciously like Suzy Pepper.
** Early on in the series, Emma says that there are people out there who get famous without any talent - like John Stamos. I suppose her new boyfriend Carl just happens to look exactly like him.
** Will had a storyline when he considered trying to make it on Broadway. Guess it must have been his doppelganger who originated Link Larkin in Hairspray, which must exist in universe, because the kids sang "You Can't Stop the Beat."
** Within the first couple of episodes, there's a scene where Finn shows Quinn his name for their baby (Drizzle) and says he got inspiration from Gwyneth Paltrow's baby name, Apple. Fast forward one whole season, and a teacher named [[Creator/GwynethPaltrow Holly Holliday]] shows up. No one even acknowledges the eerie resemblance.
** In episode 3.03, Kurt laments the fact that he is not the "leading male" type, with a comment that no-one is looking to cast him opposite Kate Hudson. 20 episodes later, Kate Hudson shows up as Rachel's new dance teacher, Cassandra July. And once again, no-one ever mentions the resemblance.
** In a Sue's Corner web episode, Sue does a piece on 'sneaky gays', in which she laments gays no longer being obvious. Among the sneaky gays are Neil Patrick Harris, who later plays Bryan Ryan, and Adam Lambert, who later plays Elliott Gilbert, AKA Starchild. Naturally, no mentions whatsoever are made on how much they resemble certain celebrities.

* ContinuityNod: In "Hold on to Sixteen," when Harmony is singing "Buenos Aires" from ''{{Evita}}'', Rachel tells Kurt, "This it torture, ''I'' should be singing that song!" - a nod to "Dream On," in which she tells Jesse that starring in ''Evita'' is one of her dreams.
