Glee s04e04 Episode Script

4ARC04 - The Break-Up

Too late.
I saw them.
Saw what? Your free lunch tickets.
Sucks being poor.
Before the recession, my mom was a real estate agent.
Solid middle class.
Now she's the only black waitress working at the Lima Country Club, taking orders from a bunch of rich old white guys who barely tip.
And it kills me, she's working extra shifts to pay for my dance lessons.
Wait you dance? Let's just keep that between us.
Oh young love.
Do you remember when you first started dating Santana and I started dating Kurt, back before everyone was so busy and so far away.
Things were so much simpler.
We had so much more hope and innocence.
Every day was just like Valentine's Day.
We're still young.
Shouldn't we still be experiencing those things? Hey.
Somebody slept late.
It's lunchtime.
Do you want a Croque Madame? We didn't go to bed till late.
Thank God for earplugs.
I love you both but I don't want to hear any of that.
We didn't do anything.
He didn't even talk to me, we just, like, laid there.
I'm gonna take this down to the park and watch drug deals go down.
It's good to see you again, Finn.
You, too, little brother.
Um, so, are you hungry? Can I make you some eggs? Yeah.
Wow, this place is awesome.
It's not the ideal neighborhood, but at least we can sort of see Manhattan.
I can't do this, Finn.
I don't understand.
I don't know what's going on.
Why are you here and why aren't you in your uniform? Because I'm not in the Army.
Well, I was, for 16 days It wasn't that bad.
I really felt like I was someplace.
I could make a difference, and I'm pretty used to getting yelled at, so I was doing okay.
Then, one day, I was cleaning Rachel they make you give your rifle a name Right through my thigh.
Thank God it didn't hit any bone.
I got a semi-honorable discharge.
So I've been backpacking through Georgia for the past couple months.
I'm sorry I didn't call you, but but I was just so embarrassed.
I mean, I left with so much certainty and confidence.
I was gonna redeem my dad and make you proud.
I couldn't face you seeing me as a Lima loser.
Enough of this enough lumping around.
All right, so what? The Army didn't work out.
Plans change.
You're here now, with me, in in the greatest city in the whole world and what a better place for you and I to find you a new dream.
Like what? Before the Army, you applied to Pace to be an actor.
You know, that was obviously not the right school but I don't know, maybe NYADA is.
I mean, why don't you come with me to all of my classes this week, and if you love it, then you can move in here and we'll spend the whole year just finding a way for you to get in.
You serious? I love it here, but something has always been missing.
I let you go once and I'm not gonna let it happen again.
I mean, I'm not jealous, I just think that it's insane that all Porcelain had to do to get an internship with Vogue.
com is take photos of every ridiculous outfit he's ever paired with a Cossack hat, and a see-through raincoat and then show up at an interview where he is lauded as a visionary because his jodhpurs happened to match his riding crop.
Well, you know, you could follow your dream, too.
Your mom gave you that money and said you could go to New York, too, iyou wanted.
I like being in college.
My schedule is crazy but I love being a cheerleader and I like the idea that I'm never more than a few hours away from you.
Can't you do laundry at school? Mm-mm.
My first week there, I heard a rumor that all the water in Louisville is just purified runoff from the Kentucky Derby stables.
But mo importantly, I promised myself that I would only do laundry at home, that way, no matter how busy I got, I would be forced to come home every few weeks, and then I'd get to see you.
Are you okay? Yeah, sorry.
I was up late last night, Antichrist Takes the Throne.
It's the ninth book in the Left Behind series of the apocalyptic Christian novels about the end times and the rise of the Antichrist, who name is Nicolae Carpathia, or Barack Obama, depending on who you ask.
Brit, those Left Behind books are really intense.
What teacher is making you read those? And don't tell me that Mr.
Schue is doing Christian music week.
It's not a class, it's an after-school club that Sam and Joe and Kitty and Dottie Kazatori are in.
And you should come tomorrow.
Who's Dottie Kazatori? She's Tina's assistant.
Everyone graduated and things got weird.
Hey, stranger.
Uh Crap! Can you hold on one second? Isabelle Wright's office.
How can I help you? Um, it's me, Kurt.
Oh, my God, I'm so sorry.
Uh, look, ve taken over Isabelle's phones for the week, and they just won't stop ringing.
It's it's okay.
If you want to call me back later, we can talk then.
I can't.
Isabelle says we have to get the column on the Web site by midnight tonight.
Look, I know this is frustrating.
It's frustrating for me, too, and I don't want to miss our phone dates but, you know, this-this could be a career for me.
I get that; I-I do.
I really get it.
It's just I really miss you.
A lot, okay? I miss talking to you and I miss hugging you and I miss messing around with you Me, too.
But you're coming in two weeks, right? I know, but what am I supposed to do until then, just hold my breath? Shoot.
Joan Didion's calling.
She always has the best gossip.
Um, all right, I will call you or text you on a break, okay? Okay.
I love you.
Look at her, she's amazing.
Even when she's not all dolled up.
I've never seen her so alive.
She's found the place where she belongs, where she thrives.
I just wish I could find a place for me because I definitely don't belong here.
I'd never get into NYADA, and what the hell am I gonna do in New York, run a hot dog cart outside of Madison Square Garden? No way.
I used to be the man of her dreams, but now we're not even in the same world.
I know what you're doing I see it all too clear I only taste the saline When I kiss away your tears You really had me going Wishing on a star But the black holes that surround you Are heavier by far I believed in your confusion You were so completely torn It must have been that yesterday Was the day that I was born There's not much to examine There's nothing left to hide You really can't be serious If you have to ask me why I say goodbye 'Cause I am barely breathing And I can't find the air I don't know who I'm kidding Imagining you care And I could stand here waiting A fool foanother day I don't suppose it's worth the price It's worth the price, the price that I would pay I rise above Or sink below Every time You come and go Please don't Come and go Oh! 'Cause I am barely breathing And I can't find the air I don't know who I'm kidding Imagining you care And I could stand here waiting A fool for another day I don't suppose it's worth the price It's worth the price, the price that I would pay But I'm thinking it over anyway I'm thinking it over anyway Yeah, yeah, yeah Ooh, oh I know what you're doing I see it all too clear.
Dude, I'm not wearing a suit for a night out on the town.
I didn't even bring a suit.
Then you can't wear Dad jeans and a rugby shirt to Callbacks.
What's Callbacks? This amazing bar that all the NYADA students go to, and Friday nights are the best because everybody gets up and sings, and it's where we're going tonight, and it's gonna be great.
So I have to dress up to go to a karaoke bar? Come on, Finn, we'll let you sing "Don't Stop Believin'," or something equally uplifting.
I don't I don't know.
I'm so out of practice, I haven't even sang in the shower since Nationals.
Surprise! Blaine! Hi.
This is amazing! But I wasn't expecting you for another two weeks.
I know, I just couldn't wait any longer.
I miss you too much.
Oh, I miss you, too.
So good to see you.
Wait! I can't believe you're here.
I missed you so much.
Oh, Finn! What are you doing here? I'm not really sure at the moment, but It's fantastic we're all together here.
Just like the good old days.
You okay? You seem a little I'm-I'm great.
It was just a it was a rough flight.
I had a middle seat because I booked the ticket so last-minute.
Well, I, for one, am glad you did.
It's our first night out in New York.
We'll never forget this.
Uh, Coke and, uh Oh, amaretto sour, please virgin.
It's good.
Hey, Finn, Rachel.
Brody, hi.
Hey, Brody, good to see you again, man.
Yeah, you too, you too.
So, how's the, uh, visit been going so far? Amazing.
I took him to school to get the full NYADA experience together.
Well, in that case, I hope you're singing tonight.
You haven't really been to NYADA until you've sung at Callbacks.
This is what I've been trying to tell him, and I really, really want him to sing.
"Give Your Heart a Break" with me, but But I'm not a student, so Well, you're with Rachel, which makes you honorary.
And I'm buddies with Pascal, the piano player.
And the song works better as a duet, so Well, why don't you guys sing it together? It's a NYADA tradition, right? And you guys are both NYADA students.
All right, let's do it.
I love you.
Wish me luck.
I'm so nervous.
It's my Off-Off Broadway debut.
It's all good.
I got your back.
The day I first met you You told me you'd never fall in love But now that I get you I know fear is what it really was Now here we are So close yet so far Haven't I passed the test? When will you realize That, baby, I'm not like the rest? Don't wanna break your heart, wanna give your heart a break I know you're scared it's wrong Like you might make a mistake There's just one life to live And there's no time to wait, to waste So let me give your heart a break Give your heart a break Let me give your heart a break Your heart a break Oh, yeah, yeah On Sunday You went home alone There were tears in your eyes I called your cell phone My love, but you did not reply The world is ours If we want it, we can take it If you just take my hand There's no turning back now No turning back Baby, try to understand Don't wanna break your heart Wanna give your heart a break I know you're scared it's wrong Like you might make a mistake Don't wanna break your heart Maybe I can ease the ache, the ache So let me give your heart a break Give your heart a break Your heart a break Your heart a break There's just so much you can take Give your heart a break, let me give your heart a break Your heart a break Oh, yeah, yeah.
Oh, my God, you guys.
It's so amazing up there.
You have to do your Sweeney Todd mega-medley.
And risk a Page Six spread? I don't think so.
com intern sings without warming up.
" Not happening.
I want to sing something.
Yeah, just, uh, ask Pascal.
How was I? Was I good? Yeah.
Yeah! Um, hi, everyone.
I, um I want to sing a song that's very special to me.
This is a song that I sang the first time I ever met the love of my life.
Um, so, Kurt, this is for you.
Before you met me I was all right But things were kind of heavy You brought me to life Now every February You'll be my Valentine Valentine Let's go all the way tonight No regrets Just love We can dance until we die You and I Will be young forever You make me Feel like I'm living a teenage dream The way you turn me on I can't sleep Let's run away and don't ever look back Don't ever look back My heart stops when you look at me Just one touch Now, baby, I believe This is real So take a chance And don't ever look back Don't ever look I'm-a get your heart racing In my skintight jeans Be your teenage dream tonight Let you put your hands on me In my skintight jeans Be your teenage dream tonight You make me Feel like a teenage dream The way you turn me on I can't sleep, let's run away And don't ever look back, don't ever look back My heart stops when you look at me Just one touch Now, baby, I believe This is real So take a chance And don't ever look back, no And I'm-a get your heart racing In my skintight jeans Be your teenage dream tonight I'll let you put your hands on me In my skintight jeans Be your teenage dream Tonight.
So, you and your friend sounded great together.
Oh, I wish you would have gotten up there and sang with me.
Yeah, I just I don't fit in here.
This place is just too big.
It moves too fast.
People are too talented.
I felt that way when I first moved here.
Even in Ohio, I knew you were meant for this.
I'm just not.
So, that was moving.
I guess I'm kind of wondering why that was.
Well, you know, I, uh I really missed you.
I miss you, too.
And I'm really glad that you're here.
But you've been so emotional and weirdly sad.
Please stop pretending that there's nothing wrong.
I was with someone.
So, are you sure you and that Brody guy are just friends? Look, I told you, everything's Just, ple-please don't lie to me.
I couldn't get in touch with you, okay? I-I you weren't answering my calls or my text messages.
I didn't know where you were or even if you were okay.
So you were with him.
I kissed him, but that's it.
Okay, and only just because you told me that you wanted me to be free.
I can't believe I even said that.
I'm so stupid.
It was Sebastian, wasn't it? No, it it wasn't Sebastian, but it doesn't It didn't mean anything.
It was just a hook-up, okay? Who was it? It doesn't matter who it was with, Kurt.
What matters is that I was by myself.
I needed you.
I needed you around, and you weren't there.
And I was lonely, and I'm I'm really sorry.
You don't think that I've been lonely? You don't think that I've had temptations? But I didn't act on it because I knew what it meant.
It meant something horrible and awful and I'm so sorry, Kurt.
I really am.
You and me We used to be together Every day together Always I really feel That I'm losing my best friend I can't believe this could be the end It looks as though You're letting go And if it's real Well, I don't want to know Don't speak, I know just what you're saying So please stop explaining Don't tell me 'cause it hurts Don't speak, I know what you're thinking I don't need your reasons Don't tell me 'cause it hurts Our memories Well, they can be inviting But some are altogether mighty Frightening As we die Both you and I With my head in my hands I sit and cry Don't speak, I know just what you're saying So please stop explaining Don't tell me 'cause it hurts No, no Don't speak, I know what you're thinking And I don't need your reasons Don't tell me 'cause it hurts Hush, darling La la la la Hush, darling La la la la Don't tell me 'cause it hurts Don't tell me 'Cause it hurts.
You can't just run away.
Dude, you totally spooked me.
I thought I was the only one awake.
Been waiting for somebody to come out.
I was hoping it'd be Blaine.
You guys okay? I kind of feel like I'm going to die.
Guess I don't have to ask you what you're doing, apparently.
I'll talk to her later about it.
I I just got to get away for a bit.
Six months ago, did you ever think that things would be like this? Sometimes, I miss high school, you know? Come on, give me a hug before I go.
Do you want me to say anything to Rachel? No.
Hi, Boobless.
It is my duty as a soldier of the Lord to invite you to McKinley's newest and most important club, the Left Behind Club.
Kitty thinks the end of times is coming.
It's a fact that the Book of Revelations predicted Twitter.
It's one of the seven signs of the apocalypse, along with porn, unexplainable weather anomalies, Martian rovers, Barney Frank, the Middle East, and MSNBC.
The Left Behind Club accepts everyone, even losers and lezzies, so your whole Glee Club's invited.
Well, you're welcome to join us as long as you're not a Muslim.
It's like Kirk Cameron said, it's never too late until it's too late.
Okay, everybody, listen up.
Y'all are sinners, and you better get right with God toot sweet, because Jesus just logged onto Orbitz and booked himself a plane ticket back to Earth.
See, he's got an awesome dad named God who's throwing him a bitchin' party called Armageddon, where he's gonna get to kick off his sandals dance a little bit, judge the crap out of everybody.
I have a question.
What the hell are you talking about? Um, the Rapture.
When the end times come, the true believers in Christ will be lifted up, body and soul, into heaven, leaving everyone else to duke it out.
What about those of us who are still on the fence about all of this? I don't know what there is to be on the fence about, Dottie.
Sorry I made you come to this.
That's okay.
You're half-Jewish, right? Mm-hmm.
Does that mean you'll float up to heaven at half speed? I just heard there's an elderly Japanese woman who fell down in the bathroom.
She doesn't speak English, and she needs your help.
I'll be right back.
- Santana, come on, we should help her.
- No, wait, Brit I'm pretty sure I know what's going on here.
Okay, everybody, let's go.
Move it, move it, move it! What's everybody doing? Fake Rapture.
It was Kitty's idea.
I can't find any Japanese ladies.
Hello? Where did everyone go? Oh, my God.
We've been left behind.
We've been left behind.
We've been left behind! That's what it feels like to be left behind, Dottie Kazatori.
Kitty! This has gone way too far, okay? Dottie seems pretty damaged.
I think I'm gonna go, now.
No! Wait.
Please don't go.
I just really don't like that Kitty girl.
And I can't believe you do.
Brittany, can-can we please go home? I don't think this club is good for you.
I'm not leaving.
Being left behind sucks.
It's just a stupid prank.
You don't get it.
You me behind, and it hurt.
That's exactly what it felt like.
Oh, my God.
Hey, buddy.
You look great.
Oh, it's good to see you.
Wait, I don't Hold on, I don't get it.
What happened what happened to the Army? It didn't work out.
Well, um when'd you get in? Have you spoken with Rachel? She She's been worried sick about you.
It's so good to see you, Mr.
Can I talk to you about something? Yeah, of course.
Um, by the time I got up, you were already gone.
I didn't get a chance to say good-bye.
Why'd you do that to him? I don't know.
I just There's no excuse.
He won't talk to me.
I don't even know if we're broken up.
Finn! Dude, what's up? I'm just passing through, visiting my mom and Burt, and Mr.
Shue said I could come by if I wanted.
Finn Hudson in the house, yo! Do you know who that is? Listen up! For all of you guys who don't know, this is Finn Hudson right here.
I thought you joined the Army! I-I did, but But things don't always work out the way you planned them to.
And I said to Finn the same thing I say everyone who comes through this club: We're a family, and you're always welcome here.
Even if you just need to take a break and think things through.
In any case, we have a lot to do today.
First order of business: Deciding what the fall musical's going to be.
All right! So I'm passing out a list of possibilities.
Peter Pan? Fiorello? What the heck? Unique wants to do Hedwig.
Uh, Tina wants to do Pacific Overtures, Miss Saigon, and Flower Drum Song.
The challenge is picking something that plays to our collective strengths, and that won't set off a firestorm in the community like Rocky Horror did.
You should do Grease.
Grease? I know it 'cause the song I auditioned for Glee Club was from Grease, remember? Yeah.
Guys like it.
Girls like it.
People like my mom like it.
It's about high school, and growing up, and being true to yourself.
Plus, the songs rock.
The wisdom of Solomon All right.
Grease is the word.
Yes! Finn's back! What's that? Open it.
I'm officially on the blue ribbon panel to improve arts education.
Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness, Mr.
Schuester goes to Washington.
Oh, congratulations! Thank you.
Thank you.
And what would you say about Miss Pillsbury also going to Washington? , my gosh, I'd love to.
For like a long weekend, or something.
That would be wonderful.
No, like like for a few months.
I want you to be there with me.
What about my job? That's what a tenure's for.
Your job will be waiting when you get back.
This is not that I'm afraid of losing my job.
This is that I like my job.
Look, this isn't a permanent thing, Emma.
It's like an extended vacation.
A sabbatical.
Teachers take them all the time.
I don't want a sabbatical.
But I-I thought you were supportive of this.
I am, because I know how much this means to you, but this is for you.
I didn't know you just expected me to drop my entire life.
Emma, I love you.
You're my fiancée.
All I'm saying is, I don't want to be alone and not be with you.
And I don't want to sit alone in some hotel room somewhere doing nothing, while you're off fulfilling your dreams.
You know, I don't think what I'm asking is so crazy.
I thought you'd be excited.
So you thought I'd just pop the champagne, follow you around like an obedient little puppy dog? Is that really all you think of me, Will? No, of course not, Emma.
Oh, come on, we still need to talk about this.
We just did.
You just don't like what I have to say.
Well, someone's either seriously crushing on you, or seriously trying to make up for something.
The latter.
He cute? The cutest.
Oh, that sucks.
I'm sorry.
Hey, you need to go binge-shopping? Isabelle's summoning us to the conference room.
I can cover for you.
I'm okay.
I'll be okay.
You wanted to see me? Sophomore year I used to sit in this back row, and secretly watch you.
I counted the number of times you'd smile at me, and I'd die on days that you didn't.
I miss this place so much.
It's where we fell in love.
Where I could say things with music, when words just weren't enough.
And I need to tell you something that I don't know how to say.
You were in college Working part-time waiting tables Left a small town, never looked back I was a flight risk With a fear of falling Wondering why we bother with love If it never lasts I say can you believe it? As we're lying on the couch The moment I could see it Yes, yes, I can see it now Do you remember We were sitting there by the water You put your arm around me For the first time You made a rebel of a careless man's Careful daughter You are the best thing That's ever been mine And I remember that fight, When everything was slipping Right out of our hands I ran out crying And you followed me out into the street Then you took me by surprise You said I'll never leave you alone You said I remember how it felt Sitting by the water She is the best thing That's ever been mine Ooh, whoa You made a rebel of A careless man's careful daughter You are the best thing That's ever been mine Do you believe it? We're gonna make it now And I can see it I can see it now.
Sad songs make me really sad, and I don't want to be sad.
I haven't been a good girlfriend to you.
I can't come home on the weekends and pretend that things are the way they were, because they aren't.
And I don't want to be like all of those other long-distance relationships, that, you know, hang in there for a few months, and then break up when someone eventually cheats or things get weird.
I would never cheat on you.
I know.
I know, and I would never cheat on you, either, but if we're being completely honest, I had, well, I guess the best way to describe it would be an energy exchange? I was cramming for this really boring sociology class, and I looked up, and this girl was staring at me.
She smiled a little too long, which means she was either crazy, or a lesbian.
And judging by the stack of Virginia Woolf she was reading, she was into me.
So I smiled back.
I had an attraction.
And you, you may have had one or you might have one, and that happens.
Let's just do the mature thing here, okay? This is not an official breakup, but let's just be honest that long-distance relationships are almost impossible to maintain.
Because both people are rarely getting what they need, especially at our age.
This sounds a lot like a breakup to me.
You know this isn't working.
You know I will always love you the most.
I love you, too.
I'm sorry about the Left Behind club.
That's Kitty's thing, not mine.
I just don't get it.
I don't get why someone like you is with someone like Kitty.
What do you mean, someone like me? You act like you don't care what anyone thinks, but you obviously are just as desperate to fit in as everyone else if you'll date her.
You don't know how it feels to really be on the outside.
The blacks kids think I'm too white; The white kids think I'm too black.
Kitty's funny and hot, and yeah, a little crazy, but you know what, she likes me and when I'm next to her, no one makes fun of me for once.
What's happening here? You coveting my man, itty-bitty? Kitty, come on, ease up.
I heard they're opening up a new Ronald McDonald House in Lima just for you and your finger-licking, lard-loving, Gilbert-Grape-looking mama.
Hey! That's enough.
I'm sorry, or what? Or I'm breaking up with you.
You do not want to break up with me, okay? I am like a bad Carrie Underwood song once I get going.
Yeah, well, I'll take my chances.
We're done.
You did this.
Well, you're both gonna regret this turn of events because I will tell you one more thing.
Obama's gonna lose.
Thank you.
You didn't have to do that.
Actually, I think I did.
Hey, do you want to go through sheet music for Grease? I was thinking of auditioning for Sandy, and I think you'd be really great Actually, I have to go.
But I'll see you later in Glee Club, okay? Okay.
This is where you proposed to me.
When you did, you reminded me it was where we had our first date.
It's also where we first met.
Do you remember that? Yeah, glee rehearsal.
You, uh, you really freaked me out.
This place is kind of like our Jerusalem.
All roads seem to just lead us back here.
I went to your house and to the tire shop.
I should have known you would've just been here though.
I know it sounds kind of weird, but I just felt like singing up here.
Seems to have helped me figure out stuff before, so Yeah, I would have just, you know, come here first, if you would have picked up your phone or answered my text messages.
Instead I had to get on a plane and drive around town, looking for you, like an idiot.
I'm sorry.
I just needed time to think.
You had four months.
I hated you for what you did to me at that train station.
I was trying to help you.
I hated you.
But then when I got to New York, I thought how much you love me and how hard that must have been for you.
And I thought, this this is what a man looks like.
This is how a man loves.
But you not telling me where you were for four months and sneaking out before sunrise, in the middle of the night, without saying good-bye, that is not being a man, Finn.
I'm trying to give you your freedom! I don't need you to give me my freedom! I am a grown woman.
I don't need you to hide from me, to keep me from doing what is right for me.
Like that Brody guy? I didn't do Brody, okay? And don't you think that I would have rather have been with you? Well, didn't you say he was on Broadway? Right? And he's got, like, three-percent body fat.
Who am I? I barely even graduated high school, and my life has absolutely no direction.
Don't you get it? No matter how rich or famous or successful I become, when it comes to you, I'm I'm always gonna be that moon-eyed girl who freaked you out at our first glee rehearsal.
You were the first boy who made me feel loved and sexy and visible.
You are my first love.
And I want, more than anything, for you to be my last.
But I can't do this anymore.
At least, not now.
We're done.
What am I gonna do with my life? I don't have my girl, I don't have a job, I don't have a place in this world.
