Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina): I think we all had role models who led us in the right direction. ... You can't stop, and you can't ever let anybody tell you that you can't do it until it's done.
Dianna Agron (Quinn): In school, my English professor was very encouraging of everything that any kid had to do, and it was so inspiring. Everybody goes and visits him again. And, then, I would say [show creator] Ryan Murphy for this ride. We would all say that. We can't call him Dad because he's not old enough.
Q: What was your favorite episode to shoot?
Amber Riley (Mercedes): It's really hard for us to remember what episode is what because ... we could be doing two or three episodes at one time. But the Madonna episode was really amazing.
Cory Monteith (Finn): Incredible.
Lea Michele (Rachel): And we're going to do an episode—a Lady Gaga episode—coming up too.
