Fox’s hit show “Glee” has many unique characters to love for many reasons. Some love Sue and her bitterness toward everyone, some like Kurt in all his diva attitude, straight laced controlling Rachel, Finn and his goofy demeanor or Santana and her eat them up and spit them out ways. In many episodes the dim-witted cheerleader Brittany is a mere backdrop, but next time you watch an episode be sure to pay closer attention to her. She has some of the funniest one-liners in the series. Here are five of the funniest, most clueless things she has said this season on “Glee.”
Season 2: Episode 1 – “Audition”
The first episode of the new season starts with the students returning to school after summer vacation. The members of the Glee club is being interviewed to what they did over the summer. When they ask Brittany what she did her answer is, “People thought I went on vacation but I spent the summer lost in the sewers.” Everyone just looks at her in disbelief, this is classic Brittany she is so clueless.
Season 2: Episode 2 – “Britney/Brittany
In both seasons of “Glee” this is one of the best episodes. It features Brittany, who does not get enough screen time but the singing and dancing homage to the singer Britney Spears is brilliantly executed. You cannot miss the first few minutes of this episode their teacher Mr. Schue asks them who Christopher Cross is. Immediately Brittany answers, “He discovered America.” Granted some younger viewers might also be clueless who he is, but for older viewers this joke hits home.
Season 2: Episode 3 – “Grilled Cheesus”
This episode had quite a few great one-liners from Brittany. One of the best was Finn announces to the class he wants to pay tribute to Jesus this week in song. All the kids immediately start arguing and debating whether they should or not. The camera pans over to Brittany and she deadpans; “Whenever I pray I fall asleep.” Only six words in her line but her delivery made is hilarious.
Season 2: Episode 4 – “Duets”
We get a laugh right at the start of this episode thanks to the series writers and Brittany. Again Mr. Shue starts class by asking them a musical question. When he asks the class what is a duet? Her answer, “A blanket.” What makes this answer so funny is she answers so seriously, she truly believes she is right.
Season 2: Episode 5 – “The Rocky Horror Glee Show”
In the most recent episode of season two, a Halloween theme episode the glee club did a tribute to the musical “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” All the students are gathered in the class Kurt turns and asks Brittany what she is going to be for Halloween. She tells him, ” A Peanut Allergy.” After hearing her crazy answer you are still finding if funny later because you are trying to envision how one could actually make a peanut allergy Halloween costume.
The start of season two has brought us so many classic, funny one-liners from Brittany you cannot miss one minute of any episode. Set your DVR to record “Glee”, Tuesday nights 8 ET, then you can view anytime. If you missed any of season one I recommend purchasing the box set, there is plenty of Brittany hilarity to watch and enjoy.
