Ahh, one of my favorite lines from Glee, courtesy of Sue Sylvester. Remember this one during “Mash-Up”?
“I’ll need to see the set list for sectionals, after all. I want them on my desk warm from the laminator at 5pm. If it is one minute late, I will go to the animal shelter and get you a kitty cat. I will let you fall in love with that kitty cat. And then on some dark cold night I will steal away into your home and punch you in the face.”
Apparently, that line isn’t what they originally planned to do.
Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that this wasn’t supposed to end with Sue punching Will in the face. Come to think of it, it doesn’t really make much sense, starting with a kitty cat and ending with a black eye — but that’s all because of Jane Lynch’s little edit.
“I only allow them to change the script if they have trouble with animal cruelty,” Murphy said. “Jane Lynch was going to get a cat and give it to someone as a present — but then sneak in and kill the cat. And she was like, ‘I’m not going to say that. I work for PETA. I can’t say kill the cat.’ So I said, ‘OK, you can change it to smash them in the face. The joke then made no sense.”
Well, Mr. Murphy, the joke still made sense, because it highlighted Sue’s irrational anger of Will Schuester. And it gave us one of our favorite Sue zingers ever.
Now, for the other cat in Glee folklore — Brittany’s diary-reading kitty…
