Glee s03e08 Episode Script

Hold On to Sixteen

I thought you weren't allowed here.
I'm permitted on school grounds as long as I'm getting my work.
Oh, I wanted to tell you I'm available for vocal coaching if you need any help.
We need to bring our "A" game if we have any chance of beating the Trouble Tones.
Oh, we're not gonna have any trouble with them.
Not as soon as I have Shelby Corcoran fired.
She's sleeping with Puck.
Look, that's a really, really dangerous rumor to make up, okay? You're gonna ruin her entire reputation.
That's the plan.
And it's not a lie.
I heard it from Puck.
First of all, Puck is 18, so what he and Shelby are doing, even though it's just wrong and so gross, it's not illegal.
So all you're doing is you're just, you're getting her fired, which is gonna take away her income to provide food and clothes and put a roof over her child's tiny little blonde head.
Sounds like an unfit mother.
And I'll be waiting in the wings when they take Beth away from her.
Beth loves her mom.
Shelby is her real mom.
Look, you've done a lot of really bad things, Quinn, but if you tell people about this Puck-and-Shelby thing, you'll be ruining this little girl's life, and then you'll have really hit rock bottom.
Sectionals is in our auditorium for the first time since 1963, Too much talking, not enough looking for songs for Sectionals.
We need to do something upbeat.
Mr.
Shue, maybe we need to concentrate on our performer problem before we set a set list.
I mean, at least the Cheerios! can dance.
We need star power.
We need Sam Evans.
Sam transferred.
His whole family moved.
We don't even know where he is.
He's in Kentucky.
It's just across the border from Cincinnati.
It's about a four hours from here.
Even homeless people have Facebook.
Rachel and I might as well get used to a life of barista work and summer stock.
There's no way we're getting into NYADA now.
If we don't win at Sectionals, I pretty much have nothing to live for.
New Directions! is a mess, and we're gonna lose, Kurt, and I can't do a thing about it.
Every time I open my mouth, Finn gives me these looks like, "What does he think he's doing?" I know what I'm doing.
Hey, guys! It's so crazy.
I'm sitting over there checking out this guy and all of a sudden I'm, like, "Wait a second I know that hair.
" What's up, buddy? Haven't seen you online.
Hi, Kurt.
We've been really busy with Glee Club.
Practicing for Sectionals together.
Mmm, congrats on the Warbler win at your sectionals.
We're up this week.
Yeah.
Well, hey, if there's one guy that can whip New Directions into a legitimate threat, it's Blaine Anderson, right? Right.
I need another coffee.
I don't like you.
Fun.
I don't like you either.
I don't like the way you talk to my boyfriend, I don't like your smirky little meerkat face, I don't like your obnoxious CW hair.
I'm onto you.
Let's get a few things straight.
Blaine's too good for you.
New Directions! is a joke.
And one of us has a hard luck case of the gay-face, and it ain't me.
Odds are by the end of the school year, I'll have Blaine and a nationals trophy, and you'll have khakis and a Lima Bean apron and that gay face.
You smell like Craig's List.
What are you guys talking about? Duh, the next time we're all going out drinking, killer! Uh-oh.
Well, I gotta run.
But you take care of that Warbler, Kurt.
Wait.
This can't be the right place.
Sam works in a bar? Well, there just aren't a lot of theaters in Northern Kentucky, so theatre groups just have to perform in whatever space they can find.
There's a lot of ladies here-- like, older ladies.
Finn, it's no secret that dinner theater appeals to elderly women.
Good afternoon, ladies! Are you ready to meet the men of Stallionz? Then please welcome to the stage-- Cobra! I didn't know Backdraft was a musical.
Someone get the door, 'cause here comes Mr.
Package.
Oh, God, no.
And ladies, let's give a warm welcome to White Chocolate! That's not an image I can ever get out of my mind.
Give me a dollar.
What? Just give me a dollar.
Rach-Rachel I tried getting a real job.
DQ was great and I got two free Blizzards a day, but it paid just over minimum wage.
Thanks.
You know how much I made this afternoon? $61 in 15 minutes.
Am I ashamed I work here? Yeah, I'm ashamed.
My dad got a job working construction to pay the rent, but when my brother needs a new pair of shoes or the TV busts, these abs pay for it.
Your parents don't know that you work here? No, they just think the DQ pays really well.
I'm good at this.
You're good at it because you have that a boy-next-door innocence that makes you approachable, okay? You're good at it for all the reasons that you shouldn't be doing it.
Come back to McKinley, Sam.
We need you for Sectionals.
Tell me you don't want it.
Dude, you're young, you got so much potential.
Working re is, like, throwing your life away.
Okay, I want it but my dad will never let me.
Don't know till you ask.
Here we go.
Dad, Mom, what I'm trying to say is I want to go back to Ohio with them.
They need me to compete at Sectionals this weekend.
And he could stay at one of our houses, so it wouldn't be like he was homeless.
Not that there isn't a quiet dignity in that or anything.
You think you two could go in the other room, make yourselves busy, please? Yeah, totally-- I'm really good at looking busy.
Son we've had a really tough year, but now we've back on our feet.
You had to become a man much sooner than other kids your age.
I'm-I'm proud of what we've all done.
It's just that I miss being a teenager.
Hey-hey-hey-hey Mom, please don't Look, if you cry, I won't go.
I'm just crying because it just makes me so sad to think of not seeing your face every day.
Though I don't understand why the Dairy Queen makes you put that glitter all over it.
This gonna make you happy? You have no idea.
Come on.
Are we sure yet which band members are joining us? Well, it looks like "Floppy Hair Bass Dude," "Chapped Lips McGee," and "Johnny Tromboner.
" God, we're screwed.
No, we're not.
I know for a fact that we're winning.
Hey, great news, everybody.
Sectionals is going to be a challenge, but we have a-- Mr.
Shue, we all appreciate your endless supply of affirmations, but all the sparkling cider in the world can't deny the fact that the Titanic has hit the iceberg and now we're on a sinking ship.
Not if I can help it.
Hey.
Hi! Come here! I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Finn and Rachel.
I sort of lost my way, but true friends help you find your way back.
Let's hear it for Sam Evans! All right, enough of the sentimental stuff.
It's time y'all get a little country back in this joint! Oh! Cheers! Two, one, two, three.
(Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup" begins) Now a red Solo cup is the best receptacle for barbecues Tailgates, fairs and festivals And you, sir, do not have a pair of testicles If you prefer drinking from glass Hey, a red Solo cup is cheap and disposable And in 14 years, they are decomposable And unlike my home, they are not foreclosable Freddie Mac can kiss my ass! Ooh!

God, no! You're my Friend? You're my friend.
Thank you for being my friend, red Solo cup.
Aw Red Solo cup, I fill you up Let's have a party Have a party Let's have a party Let's have a party I love you, red Solo cup Red Solo I fill you up Let's have a party Let's have a party Let's have a party, yeah-eah! Solo cup Do-do Solo cup Oh, do-do Solo cup Doo-dee-da-ba Hmm-hmm-mm.
Corn dogs! I just heard the news that Trouty Mouth is back in town.
I've been keeping a notebook, just in case this day ever came.
"Welcome back, Lisa Rinna.
"I've missed you so much since your family packed their bags, "loaded them in your mouth, and skipped town.
"I can't tell you how many times I've wanted "to enjoy a crisp pickle, but couldn't find anyone "to suck the lid off the jar.
"I assume you've been working as a baby-polisher, "where young mothers place their infants' heads in your mouth to "get back that newborn shine.
"So glad you're back.
"I haven't seen a smile that big "since a Claymation Abominable Snowman got "his teeth pulled by that little gay elf dentist.
Love, Santana.
" I missed you, too, Santana.
Oh, my God.
Hey, Sam, wait up.
I'm sure you've heard that Mercedes has a new boyfriend.
He's got a full scholarship to Ohio State.
Nice to see you, too, Quinn.
No, no, it's a good thing.
See, I'm free, you're free.
And I'm sure that you've noticed that I'm supermodel thin now that my thyroid is under control.
What do you want, Quinn? Look, last year I didn't appreciate you.
But we're perfect together.
Quinn I'm gonna get Beth back.
And-And you'd be perfect to help raise her.
You're so good with kids.
What is so funny? Quinn, you've got what I call "rich white girl problems.
" It's a tough world out there, I know.
I've been through it.
You only get one senior year.
Enjoy it.
You know that song "Jack and Diane" by John Mellencamp? Please don't sing.
My favorite lyric is this one: "Hold on to 16 as long as you can.
" with the applications? Deadlines are this week.
Tina, I already applied to Stanford.
Pre-med.
But you don't want to be a doctor, you want to be a dancer.
Not if it means ripping my family apart.
My dad hasn't said one word to me or my mom since West Side Story.
I'll dance in my free time.
Everyone's happy.
Except for you.
Mike, your dad needs to understand that dancing is your passion, not some extracurricular.
I miss him, Tina.
I know.
But you have one life, Mike.
One chance to get it right.
Don't be a coward.
Don't call me that.
You won't make it as a dancer if you're not 100% committed.
So maybe your dad's right.
Maybe you should be a doctor.
Or maybe he's right, and we shouldn't be together.
six, seven, eight.
Bum-bum-bum.
Step and hit.
Come on! To the beat! What does it even matter, anyway? It's not like we have a chance of winning.
Not without the girls.
Sir, girls smell better than ham and when they're dancing and bouncing around, you can't help but watch them.
Well, that's it then.
We'll take what's most appealing about us as a group, and we'll use it to our advantage.
Yeah, how about, you know, something like, um something like that? Cute! I like the spin, I like the spin.
Try it again.
Yeah.
God, okay, stop, stop.
Look, Blaine, this is totally boy band.
What we need to sell here is sex.
What the hell is that? That's a, it's a body roll.
It's not a body roll.
That is sex.
Man's not wrong.
I got light tingles where it's only 50/50 for tingling.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Sam, that's awesome.
That's exactly what we need.
No, that's not, that's not what we need.
We don't have to resort to that.
It's cheap.
You know, it's selling out.
I came back here to win.
When you're desperate, sometimes you got to, you know, use your assets and do what you got to do to get back that advantage.
This is the advantage.
Of course that's what you think; you have to think that in order to sleep at night.
What the hell does that mean? It means that I'm not for sale.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Hey.
Forget it.
Is that Sam's face? Yep.
Yours, too.
Don't act so surprised.
After getting bullied so much, I took up boxing.
I also started the Dalton branch of Fight Club, which I obviously can't talk about! What is your problem with me, anyway?! Ever since I got here, you've given me nothing but crap.
Honestly, dude, I was kind of jealous.
I felt threatened.
Your talent kind of freaked me out, made me question whether or not I was good enough.
Look, Blaine, I'm sorry.
Uh, I've been acting like a jackass to you.
With Rachel gone, you're the most talented, well-rounded member of this team.
And now more than ever, we need to be on the same page.
United.
Tell me what you need me to do.
We have an opportunity.
An opportunity to be remembered at this school for the rest of our lives for doing the impossible.
But it all starts right here, with you and me.
I just want to be able to look across that stage at you and know that we did everything we could.
No regrets.
Let's get back to work.
All right.
What are you doing? Holding your hand.
Don't.
Sam, look, I I heard about your boyfriend.
Then you heard he's built like a bulldozer.
We had a summer fling.
It was more than that.
I'll always have a special place in my heart for you, but I've moved on.
And you need to do the same.
I don't care how big or bad your boyfriend is.
I'm gonna fight to get you back.
What's this? A bootleg of West Side Story.
Starring your son.
You missed the performance, but I thought you should see how truly incredible Mike was in it.
Go.
Take that with you.
Are you sure? 'Cause if you saw it, then maybe you'd realize that Mike's throwing everything he loves away just to please you.
And if you don't make it right, he's going to spend the rest of his life doing something he hates, dying inside.
Tina sit.
Please.
You want to be a performer, too? And your parents support this? They love me.
They love you, but they're not honest with you.
And you children, you think you know everything, but this path you've chosen, Tina, the one you want Mike to choose, too, there'll be such heartache.
So few opportunities for you.
I know.
I've heard the jokes.
I better hope they do a musical of The Joy Luck Club or Memoirs of a Geisha.
I don't care.
Performing is what I need to do-- same as your son.
And it may be hard, but it's what we were born to do.
You know, you're always talking about honor, Mr.
Chang.
Help your son honor his gift.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la Okay, guys, you're going to want to sing from your diaphragm as much as you can.
And if you forget the words, just keep your lips moving.
Hopefully, nobody will notice.
Let's take a few moments to gather our thoughts.
Trouble Tones are on in five.
Good luck out there.
What? Why would you try and talk to my dad? You're making things worse.
He almost didn't let me come today.
I'm really disappointed in you, Tina.
Well, that makes two of us, 'cause I'm really disappointed in you.
Hello, Will.
Looking good, ladies! We just came to say, may the best glee club win.
Yes, and just in case that glee club is us, I have convinced Miss Corcoran to consider a contingency plan.
Yes, in the event of a New Directions! loss, Trouble Tones has voted to allow any of you to join us at Regionals.
You're welcome.
Excuse me? That's incredibly rude, Santana.
We're being nice.
It would be rude if I followed you around and every time you took a step, I played a note on a tuba.
Thank you for the offer, Miss Corcoran, but right now, we're gonna concentrate on winning this thing.
And we will be winning, Shelby.
We've got it in the bag.
Puck here is going to come through for us.
He's such a shining star, in every conceivable way.
Don't you think? Good luck, everybody.
See you on the ice.
Sad? Devastated.
And now, the judges for this year's Show Choir Sectional Come on.
here at McKinley High.
Department of Motor Vehicles Employee of the Month, Brandy Englebert! From the 11th District Court of Appeals, the Honorable Judge Dorothy Saunders! And Western Ohio's Birthday Clown of the Year three years running-- Tickles! And now, let's welcome our first performers.
All the way from Defiance, Ohio, the Unitards! What's new, Buenos Aires? Oh, my God, it's the Gerber baby.
I'm new, I want to say I'm just a little stuck on you You'll be on me, too Oh, my God, she's good.
Oh, this is torture.
I should be singing that song.
Stand back You ought to know what you're gonna get in me Just a little touch of star quality Fill me up with your heat, with your noise With your dirt, overdo me Let me dance to your beat, make it loud, let it hurt Run it through me All I want is a whole lot of excess Tell the singer this is where I'm playing And if ever I go too far It's because of the things you are Beautiful town I love you You're a tramp, you're a treat You will shine to the death, you are shoddy But you're flesh, you are meat You shall have every breath in my body Put me down for a lifetime of success Give me credit, I'll find ways of paying Stand back, Buenos Aires Because you ought to know what you're gonna get in me Just a little touch of, just a little touch of Just a little touch of star quality.
Wow.
I didn't count on that one.
Where are you going? Aren't you supposed to be in the auditorium? I saw you leave the auditorium.
I know what you're gonna go do.
You're gonna go tell Figgins about Shelby and Puck.
I'm an adult.
I can do whatever I want.
If you want to be a destructive force in the universe, that's your business, okay, but can you just please at least wait until after the Trouble Tones perform? Why? Because we don't want to wreck all the hard work that our friends in that group put into their performance.
So we win.
No, not like that.
Look, just if you're going to go through with this, you owe it to Shelby to tell her first.
It's the adult thing to do.
I got a taste of what it's like to do the wrong thing.
Okay? And it feels awful.
Does she have a temperature? Okay, forget it.
I'll be home in an hour.
Looks like I'm going to be missing my own victory party.
Puck told me about you two.
I'm going to tell Figgins and get you fired.
I'm ending it.
Not that there's that much "it" to end.
You shouldn't have come here with her.
I would have been fine.
What you did was wrong.
What you're doing with Puck is wrong.
You're so young pretty Don't talk down to me.
It goes away, you know.
Not the pretty-- you'll always be pretty-- but the young.
It happens really slow, and you don't even notice it, and then, one day everything just feels different.
I can't wait to feel different.
Don't wish away your life.
You're exactly where you're supposed to be.
I think I thought that being with an 18-year-old would make me feel 18 again, but mostly, it just made me feel even older.
All right.
I'm going to enjoy my last few hours of being a teacher.
I recommend that you enjoy being up on that stage.
Ladies and gentlemen, from McKinley High, competing for the first time ever, the Trouble Tones! I am sorry, Quinn.
(Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" begins) At first I was afraid, I was petrified Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side But then I spent so many nights Thinking how you did me wrong And I grew strong And I learned how to get along And so you're back From outer space, I just walked in To find you here with that sad look upon your face I should have changed the stupid lock I should have made you leave your key If I'd have known for just one second You'd be back to bother me Oh, now, go Walk out the door Just turn around now 'Cause you're not welcome anymore We got this.
Yeah, we do.
You think I'd crumble You think I'd lay down and die I'm a survivor What? I'm not gonna give up What? I'm not gonna stop What? I'm gonna work harder What? I'm a survivor, I'm gonna make it What? What? I will survive, keep on survivin' What? What? Thought I couldn't breathe without you, I'm inhaling You thought I couldn't see without you, perfect vision You thought I couldn't last without you, but I'm lastin' You thought that I would die without you, but I'm livin' That I would fail without you, but I'm on top Thought it would be over by now, but it won't stop Thought that I would self-destruct But I'm still here Even in my years to come I'm still gonna be here I'm a survivor, I'm not gonna give up What? What? I'm not gonna stop, I'm gonna work harder What? What? I'm a survivor, I'm gonna make it What? What? I will survive, keep on survivin' What? What? Oh, no, not I, I will survive Oh, as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive I've got all my life to live And I've got all my love to give And I'll survive, I will survive, hey, hey I'm a survivor, I'm not gonna give up What? What? I'm not gonna stop, I'm gonna work harder What? What? I'm a survivor, I'm gonna make it What? What? I will survive, keep on survivin' What? What? I will survive.

Get over here! Gave it our all.
Yeah, we did.
Top dogs! Yes! This is what I was missing! I just I can't believe it.
I can't believe he actually came.
He stood and Michael.
May I speak with you? Both of you? Dancing is your talent, your dream.
That's what you tried to tell me.
That's what you tried to tell me.
And that's what I saw tonight.
This is your path, son, so you must follow it, and make us proud.
And your mother and I, we will help you follow it however we can.
Apply to dance schools-- the best ones.
Dad Dad, I I missed the deadlines, I think.
No, you didn't.
I sent in your applications, just in case.
I kind of had to forge your signature, though.
I love you so much.
As an award-winning clown, I'd like to say that it's nice, for once, to be working with kids that are just sick with talent.
Third place-- The Unitards! Harmony Hi.
I just wanted to tell you that I thought you were really amazing.
And just think, I'm only a sophomore and I'm already this good.
Next year's going to be a bloodbath.
In second place we have the Trouble Tones! In first place is New Directions! Well, my suspension is officially over.
It'll still be on my transcript, though.
I'm just hoping that the admissions department at NYADA sees it as a sign of my artistic, rebellious, attitude.
Good luck with that.
Are you going to go tell Figgins about Shelby? 'Cause I just I still think that it's a really terrible idea.
I came here to talk to you, actually.
To tell you I'm not going to tell.
Why? Because I love Beth, and I don't want to ruin her life.
I wanted to thank you actually.
For what? For keeping me from doing something stupid.
Something I would have regretted my entire life.
We're kind of friends, huh? Kind of.
What do you think about Yale? Oh, no, I have my sights set on NYADA.
No, for me.
I'm not the singer that you and Kurt are, but Yale has an amazing drama program.
And I really do like to perform.
Yeah.
Certainly would nail all the parts where the girl has to cry.
No, I think it's a great idea.
I mean, especially since you won't have me to compete with.
You're a lot better than you know.
Well, I'll see you at Glee Club.
Where are you going? I have a couple people I need to talk to.
Okay, well, I don't know if you need help with your Yale application Not with the Yale application, but, um, there is something you could do for me.
We were better.
I don't know, I think it could have gone either way.
It was that damn Trouty Mouth.
Even I felt a little something in my lady loins when he did that magic sex dance.
All right, ladies, girl talk.
No.
Uh-uh.
Don't you dare try and give us a pep talk.
Or ask us to come back to New Directions-- not interested.
Wait, is it even possible? Do you think they would really take us back? Of course they would take us back.
But I'm telling you, I'm not going.
Do you know what growing up is about? Losing things.
In six months, we'll all be gone, scattered.
We'll keep in touch.
Yeah, but it won't be the same.
When we see each other, it'll be a special occasion.
It'll be different.
I don't want to grow up yet.
I'm not ready to lose you girls.
What are we supposed to do? Come back to Glee Club and sing background for Blaine and Berry until we graduate? I'm not doing that again.
We know what it feels like to be out front now.
What if Mr.
Shue agreed to let the Trouble Tones sing at least one number per competition? Well, even if Mr.
Shue did agree to that, Rachel never would.
What if I told you that they both already did? I'm listening.
Look, I know I went a little crazy.
But I'm here now.
I'm 17-- I have the rest of my life in front of me.
I love Glee Club.
I love you girls.
And when we're 27, or 87, I want us to be able to look back on these next couple months and talk about how it was the best times of our lives.
Can't do that if we're not all together.
We're doing a big number in the auditorium to celebrate our victory and to prepare for Regionals.
We could use a couple more girl voices.
Let me know if you hear about anybody who might want to join.
Give me a second I need to get my story straight My friends are in the bathroom Getting higher than the Empire State My lover he's waiting for me just across the bar My seat's been taken by some sunglasses Asking 'bout a scar and I know I gave it to you months ago I know you're trying to forget But between the drinks and subtle things The holes in my apologies You know I'm trying hard to take it back So if by the time the bar closes And you feel like falling down I'll carry you home Tonight We are young So let's set the world on fire We can burn brighter than the sun Whoa Tonight We are young We are young So let's set the world on fire Fire We can burn brighter than the sun Carry me home tonight Just carry me home tonight The angels never arrived But I can hear the choir So someone come and carry me home Tonight We are young So let's set the world on fire We can burn brighter than the sun We are young La-la-la-la-la-la-la We are young We are young We are young So let's set the world on fire We can burn brighter than the sun So if by the time the bar closes And you feel like falling down I'll carry you home tonight.
