Whether Glee's Sue Sylvester is berating Will Schuester's hair or using her cutthroat one-liners to describe the glee kids, Jane Lynch strikes the perfect balance between villain and sarcastic genius. And we just can't get enough.
Before Glee returns Tuesday (9:28/8:28c, Fox) check out our list of the eight best unfiltered lines Sue has uttered to date:
8. Episode 6: "Vitamin D"
[Writing in her journal]
"Every time I try to destroy that clutch of scab-eating mouth breathers, it only comes back stronger. Like some sexually ambiguous horror-movie villain."
7. Episode 2: "Showmance"
[Proposing that Will get rid of the glee club]
"Let's break it down. You want to be creative; you want to be in the spotlight. Face it: You want to be me. So here's the deal. You do with your depressive little group of kids what I did with my wealthy elderly mother: Euthanize it."
6. Episode 13: "Sectionals"
[Fighting with Will about the leaked set list for sectionals]
"I'm reasonably confident you will be adding revenge to the long list of things you're no good at, right next to being married, running a high school glee club, and finding a hair style that doesn't make you look like a lesbian. Love ya like a sister."
5. Episode 9: "Wheels"
[Trying to train new cheerleader Becky]
"You think this is hard? Try auditioning for Baywatch and being told that they're going in another direction. That was hard."
4. Episode 12: "Mattress"
[Chastising Will about the glee kids' mattress commercial]
"You wouldn't know if your glee club was using your office to breed rabbits for pets or for food. You know why? You're too busy chasing tail and loading your hair with enormous amounts of product. I mean today it just looks like you put lard in it."
3. Episode 12: "Mattress"
[During her "Sue's Corner" segment on the local news]
"All I want is just one day a year where I'm not visually assaulted by uglies and fatties. Seriously, Ohio, these retinas need a day off."
2. Episode 2: "Showmance"
[Following the glee club's provocative performance of Salt-n-Pepa's "Push It"]
"That was the most offensive thing I've seen in 20 years of teaching. And that includes an elementary school production of Hair."
1. Episode 2: "Showmance"
[Telling Will's wife, Terri, that Will's interested in Emma]
"Your husband is hiding his kielbasa in a Hickory Farms gift basket that doesn't belong to you. ... I think you should both pack up and move out of the district — unless you want to lose your man to a mentally ill, ginger pygmy with eyes like a bushbaby."
