At prom Finn also said that she had everything when people like Rachel had nothing and tried to force her out of her wheelchair. Because, despite being paralyzed, she had regained some ability to stand.

At this point in the 5th season, I'm actually surprised at how much I miss Quinn. Glee has morphed into such an obnoxious bro-fest that the absence of characters who will casually (or not so casually) quote Gloria Steinem has become very glaring. I thought Quinn was batshit crazy most of the time, but she showed some promising glimpses at times and I really enjoyed what little we saw of her in season 4. I actually think her scenes with Santana in I Do were by far the highlight of a sucky season. I hope we see Quinn again before the series is over, preferably being fabulous in NY with Rachel and Santana
I miss Quinn too. And yeah, she was crazy in a make no sense kind of way and it may not be the popular option but I don't believe her crazy was ever consistent. I know some people believe it made sense for the character but I disagree. I just feel like the writers had no idea what to do with her and were just writing to write.
She was pretty fabulous in season 4. I like to think parts of season 2 and 3 never happened, because in season 4 I was reminded me of how awesome I believed she was at the end of season 1 and what I thought she could be in season 2. The start of season 2 always bothered me, for some reason, having Quinn go back to the Cherrios, I don't know why. I just had thought at the end of season 1, she realized being a Cherrio wasn't worth it. All the hell she had to go though, I remember the scene where Mercedes had fainted and they were in the nurse office and Quinn helped her by saying she realized she needed to take care of another life, it made her take of hers better, I just didn't quite understand why she would go back to that.
And now I just typed that whole thought process and given too much thought to it when the show writers just wanted Quinn back in that cherrio uniform without giving it a seconds thought.
I do like Quinn. But I also feel like the poor character is roadkill for the sexist behavior given to the females on this show. I know all the females suffer with this but I feel like Quinn got it pretty harshly(now that seems to be Tina's role, when shes allowed to speak or do anything), but I feel like Quinn has always been the model for go to crazy women behavior.

But, unlike current Tina, I always thought that Quinn's crazy made a certain amount of sense. Driven by part trauma, part bitterness, part the hypocrisy of her upbringing, and part Sue's ungodly influence. In seasons 1 and 2, she needed a full-time psychologist and social worker, but McKinley wasn't equipped for that and her own status-conscious family would never consider hiring one. As a teenager, she had her parents in one ear and Sue in the other, providing conflicting examples of the "ideal" womanhood. Quinn's crazy, but it's an understandable type of craziness, and I could always get her thoughts and motives.
