** In "Mash-Off" Cory Monteith didn't know Naya Rivera (Santana) was going to slap him, Director Eric Stoltz mouthed it to Naya in the very last scene. Made better by the fact that the slap was in fact real.

** Rachel auditions for Glee by singing the song "On My Own" from ''Literature/LesMiserables'' (the musical). Creator/LeaMichele, the actress who plays Rachel, made her Broadway debut as Young Cosette in the Broadway cast of the same musical and more recently played Eponine in the Hollywood Bowl concert. For those not in the know, grown Eponine sings "On My Own". Young Cosette/Young Eponine (nonspeaking) rotate nights in most productions, so she would have played both roles.
