Her first words at winning the Emmy: “Outlandish!”
Who else but Jane Lynch, fabulous actor and polyester track suit-wearing character that she is, thanks her wife at the Emmys?
One more of my favorite clips from Glee, in which Sue Sylvester discusses the “sneaky gays”:

The glee villainess discusses her confusion over Doogie Howser’s sexuality and medical credentials. “Why nowadays, Sneaky Gays are everywhere–at the church, at the mall, picking up their meticulously dressed, fastidious children at day care,” she says. “Why you could be sitting next to a Sneaky Gay right now and not even know it.”
Who’s getting excited for a new season of singing high school kids?

Molly Shannon joins the cast of Glee in a recurring role as McKinley High’s new astronomy teacher, badminton coach, and, most importantly, Sue Sylvester’s wise-cracking nemesis.
I hate to admit that I’m a Gleek. (What would the New Design have been without one Asian kid?) Here’s hoping Shannon is as funny as Kirsten Wiig in yukking it up.
And here’s one of those scenes that has enshrined Glee in the parlance of every kid who’s ever done musical theater (I was half-expecting the New Orleans Saints to break out into this Beyonce number last Sunday). This number never ceases to make me smile:
