The “Glee” Cast Looks Back On The Song That Started It All.

Kevin McHale: Our first real experience on that stage was “Don’t Stop Believin’,” and it felt like camp at the time because we were all trying to figure out what the hell this show was. None of us knew what we were doing.

Lea Michele: And we got in trouble.

Chris Colfer: We got in a lot of trouble for goofing off during Matt [Morrison (Mr. Schue)]’s coverage.

Michele: When they were filming Matt, we were messing around so much that [creator] Ryan [Murphy] came up and yelled at us.

Colfer: I wasn’t messing around. I was very serious.

Michele He was back then, but we broke him.

Amber Riley: That was the first time — of many times — we got in trouble with Ryan.

McHale: The best memory I have is of us all sitting on the stage and getting to know each other in between takes. Also, that number was probably one of the simplest we’ve ever done, and it took a day and a half to shoot. It was also re-choreographed at least 12 times.
