Mercedes occasionally returns to McKinley to mentor the younger students as a vocal coach.
She is portrayed by actress and musician, Amber Riley.
In early drafts of the Pilot script, Quinn's name was "Liz Fabray".
Emma sang Afternoon Delight with, Carl, Puck and Rachel and Quinn thinking it was a dessert, not really another meaning for an afternoon romp in the sheets.
Ironically the character Chris Colfer portrays is one of the oldest kids in the Glee Club. Chris, until "Pot' O Gold", was the youngest cast member in Glee, even younger than Lauren Potter, who portrays Becky. Jenna, Darren and Kevin all portray characters who are about a year younger, but they are all older than him.
