The scene where Rachel reprimands Finn for deciding to quit Glee because his friends tease him originally ended with her slapping him. In her audition, Lea Michele reached across the table without any hesitation and slapped one of the casting directors, who was reading Finn for her. When the other casting directors erupted with laughter, Michele sternly told them "This isn't comedy - that was my sad face! Now, I'm going to do it again and you're all going to cry."

The night before shooting the pilot, Quinn had still not been cast. Dianna Agron auditioned and sang in the office next to Robert J. Ulrich the night before filming began.

Sandy Ryerson says he got medical marijuana to treat his nervous breakdown. Ohio does not have medical marijuana yet. Michigan does, but bringing it across state lines would be a felony.

When we hear the narration by Rachel in the beginning of the episode, she states that she tries to post on MySpace everyday to keep her talent alive and growing. However, when the Cheerios are watching Rachel's cover of "On My Own", in the box that says "Similar Videos", it states that there are no other videos from Rachel.

What are the differences between the TV-Version and the Director's Cut?
The Director's Cut's duration is (including outro and longer black screens) about 55 minutes, which is 12 minutes longer than the original. The Director's Cut is also more recommendable for people who are new to the series. At the beginning one is a bit more confused, but some logical errors are being corrected and some small scenes allow the characters to develop further, especially the relationship quadrangle Will, Emma, Terri and Ken. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
