Cultural References

  • The owner of the Spotlight Diner is called Gunther. It may or it may not be a reference to Friends, where Gunther was one of Central Perk's employee, where Rachel Greene (Rachel Berry's namesake) worked for over 2 years.
  • The phrase "The end justifies the means" quoted by Sue during her voice-over was not said originally by Jesus, like she stated, but by Niccolò Machiavelli in "The Prince". Actually, Christianity defends the opposite.
  • Kitty calls Tina as 'memoirs of a lame geisha', which is a reference to a novel, Memoirs of a Geisha, written by Arthur Golden, and lately adapted to a movie.
  • During the boy's conversation in the choir room, Sam mentions Red Dawn. Red Dawn is a movie released in 2012 directed by Dan Bradley and starred Chris Hemsworth.
