  • In the Glee novel, Glee: Summer Break, Rachel has a similar incident like Tina has in the show as Rachel falls, hits her head and knocks herself out, thus having a fantasy/dream/hallucination where the Glee kids act totally different.
  • A distorted and minor-key variation of Time for Some Girl Talk is played during parts of the dream.
  • In New Directions, Tina has another dream/fantasy after being hit by Sam with (presumably) the Glee Club's 2nd Place Nationals trophy called C.H.U.M.S.
    • However, Tina's fantasy in New Directions was based on the TV show "Friends".
