'Glee': The 15 best Brittanyisms of the year

Glee2 This year was filled with a lot of TV drama. On “Glee” alone, there was a heart attack, breakups, bullying and a Christmas miracle. It was also the year of Brittany. No, not the one who graces tabloids and TMZ between albums, but Brittany S. Pierce (Heather Morris), the hilariously daffy cheerleader who makes us laugh week after week on “Glee.” Morris became a series regular in Season 2, but she stole the spotlight as soon as the show returned in April from its Season 1 hiatus. Below are 15 of Brittany's best gems about dolphins, mice, cats -– we're noticing an animal trend -– misogynists and more from 2010:

1. “Did you know that dolphins are just gay sharks?” -- Season 1, Episode 14, "Hell-O"

2. Santana: “Look, I'm pretty sure you have to do what we say, and this food was not satisfactory.” Brittany: “There was a mouse in mine.”
-- Season 1, Episode 14, "Hell-O"

3. “When I pulled my hamstring, I went to a misogynist.” --Season 1, Episode 15, "The Power of Madonna"

4. “I'm pretty sure my cat's been reading my diary.” --Season 1, Episode 16, "Home"

5. "There are so many lyrics." -- Season 1, Episode 18, "Laryngitis"

6. "Kissing my armpit is a really big turn-on for me." -- Season 1, Episode 18, "Laryngitis"

7. “People thought I went on vacation, but actually I spent the summer lost in the sewers.” --Season 2, Episode 1, “Audition”

8. "I don't brush my teeth. I rinse my mouth with soda after I eat. I was pretty sure Dr Pepper was a dentist." --Season 2, Episode 2, “Britney/Brittany”

9. (About Jacob Ben Israel's Jew-fro) "It looks like a Jewish cloud.” -- Season 2, Episode 2, “Britney/Brittany”

10. “Is God an evil dwarf?” -- Season 2, Episode 3, “Grilled Cheesus”

11. Artie: "I don't get it. I don't even think you've made eye contact with me before."
Brittany: “For a while, I thought you were a robot."
--Season 2, Episode 4, “Duets”

12. Tina: “I’m confused. Are you and Artie officially dating now?”
Brittany: “Deal with it. [Softly] When you guys fooled around, did he ever just lie there?”
--Season 2, Episode 8, “Furt”

13. “Just like I know that the cricket that reads to me at night is totally stealing my jewelry.” --Season 2, Episode 9, “Special Education”

14. “Can I be honest? I don’t understand the difference between an elf and a slave.” -- Season 2, Episode 10, "A Very Glee Christmas"

15. Coach Beiste: “Later on, that girl was glad Santa didn’t give her what she wanted. She put being husky to good use.”
Brittany: “Was her name Ricki Lake?”
--Season 2, Episode 10, "A Very Glee Christmas"

I'm not sure if this one was from this year but.....

"Her sweaters make her look home-schooled." --talking about Rachel.

"Heart attacks are from loving too much."

And from the Christmas episode "Last year I left my stocking up over Christmas vacation and an entire family of mice started living in it. Their Christmas gift to each other was rabies."

Brittany is my all-time favorite!!

'This year i'm going as a peanut allergy'

'Now I know what Miley feels like'

Mr. Schue: ''Who can tell me who Christopher Cross is?''
Brittany: ''He discovered America.''

Mr. Schue: ''Who can tell me what a ballad is?''
Brittany: ''A male duck.''

It was when she described her Halloween costume. "I'm going as a peanut allergy," she said.

7. “People thought I went on vacation, but actually I spent the summer lost in the sewers.” --Season 2, Episode 1, “Audition”

I was pretty shore she said Azores and not sewers... :S
