The title of the episode "The Quarterback" was given for Finn's position on the football team.
All of the profits from the episode were donated to charities that were special to Corey Monteith.
Most of the scenes from this episode were the first take. The cast being unable to hold it together for longer than one.
Rachel: I had it all planned out. I was going to make it big on Broadway and maybe make a Woody Allen movie. And then when we were ready, I would just, come back and he'd be teaching here and I'd walk through those doors and I would just say 'I'm home' and then we would live happily ever after.
Kurt [to Santana]: If there's one thing I've learned from Finn dying it's that shame is a wasted emotion. I'm sure Finn had secrets too, but who cares now? Do you really think that one day on your deathbed you're really going to think 'oh good, no one knew I was kind?'
Sanatana: Okay, I know that Finn had his doubts about God, but I am convinced that Squishyteets is up in Heaven right now, plopped down next to his new best friend Fat Elvis, helping themselves to a picnic of baby back ribs smothered in butterscotch pudding and tater tot grease. So, this is for you, Hudson.

Burt talks about keeping the lamp from when Kurt had redecorated Finn's room. He refers to how he had screamed at Finn for calling the lamp "faggy." This was from season one in the episode "Theatricality."
