Glee s06e07 Episode Script

Transitioning

Shot through the heart and you're to blame Darling, you give love a bad name I'm living in a dream.
Besides having an unlimited budget, kids recruited from all over the world for their talent, a nutritionalist, costume designer and strength and conditioning specialist, being the coach of Vocal Adrenaline has a few other perks, like this company car, my own massage therapist, and a paycheck so big, we moved into a higher tax bracket.
An angel's smile is what you sell You promise me heaven then put me through hell Chains of love got a hold on me when passion's a prison you can't break free, oh you're a loaded gun The kids are so committed.
They start practice on their own most days.
I'll admit I do miss the camaraderie of the New Directions! It's every man for himself here.
You give love - a bad name! - a bad name! The alumni support is huge.
Our boosters are incredibly generous.
My wife says this one is the best.
Wow, really this is so unnecessary.
I was always a football guy myself.
But my flaming gay son loves show choir.
- Ah.
- And championships are championships.
So, I'm throwing all my influence behind Vocal Adrenaline.
And we're all counting on another win this year, Mr.
Schuester.
Oh, I think as long as you're happy and feeling good, we support you.
I mean, you need to just keep being honest with yourself.
The way I see it, I'm playing the long game in terms of making real changes there.
I can't expect to go in there and alter their whole way of doing things.
My dream is to combine the resources and support of Vocal Adrenaline with the heart and inspirations of the New Directions! Well, if anybody can do that, you can.
Ah! What do you say we let him out to play, huh? What here? Oh, my God, no.
He might touch something.
Life is good.
What? Oh! Oh, my God! What happened? Your team Vocal Adrenaline.
They decided to go with the tradition of egging the competition.
Aah! S06E07 Transitioning Okay.
So, I've heard from my friends Rachel Berry and Blaine Anderson, the coaches of the New Directions! and the Warblers, that they were egged by my kids the other day on the way to their cars.
Come on, guys! I have to put my foot down! This kind of bullying will not be tolerated! Hey, I think you're being intolerant of our intolerance, Will.
It's Mr.
Schuester.
And don't be such a smart ass, Clint.
This week We're gonna be taking turns performing songs dealing with the theme of "tolerance.
" I will lead by example.
And I've invited a very special guest to join me.
And a Vocal Adrenaline alumni.
When I was in the third grade, I thought that I was gay 'Cause I could draw, my uncle was and I could keep my room straight I told my ma, tears rushing down my face She's like, "will, you loved girls since before pre-k Trippin'," yeah, I guess she had a point, didn't she? Bunch of stereotypes all in my head I remember doing the math like yeah I'm good at little league, a pre-conceived idea Of what it all meant for those that liked The same sex had the characteristics The right wing conservatives think it's a decision And you can be cured with some treatment and religion Man-made rewiring of a predisposition playing God - Yeah, yeah - aw, nah, here we go America the brave still fears what we don't know And God loves all his children is somehow forgotten, but we Paraphrase a book written I don't know and I can't change even if I tried Even if I wanted to hey, my love, my love my love, she keeps me warm Love is patient she keeps me warm love is kind she keeps me warm love is patient she keeps me warm love is kind she keeps me warm - love is patient - not crying on Sundays love is kind - love is patient - love is patient oh, whoa! - Love is kind.
- love is kind.
What the hell was that, Schuester? You can't be serious.
Serious as a hangnail, honey.
Shut up, stop rapping and let us rehearse for sectionals.
We don't care about gay or straight or trans or intersects.
- We care about winning.
- No, wait.
This is genius.
If we can get the New Directions! worked up into thinking we're intolerant of an entire group of people, they'll go into Will Schuester mode.
And dedicate an entire week of practice to a lesson about tolerance.
Hey! This behavior is over.
Yes, you are talented.
No, that does not give the right to behave however you want.
Now, like it or not, I am running this show choir now, and I'm gonna run it how I like.
Well, McKinley, this is it.
It took a long time to get here.
And my heart's racing like a slow pig at a sausage factory.
But I can truly say that today I'm living the life I always wanted.
I took some time off to let my outsides catch up with my insides.
But now I'm ready to take this old jalopy for a spin.
So Say hello to Coach Sheldon Beiste.
Coach! Welcome back! You know, from a distance, I almost mistook you for an aging yet virile James Garner.
- Oh, thanks, Sue.
- Mm-hmm.
- It's-it's good to be back.
- Coach! It is so good to have you back and in true form.
Oh, my gosh! We got so much guy talk to catch up on that we never even got to do before.
Like, uh, about me and Rachel and then Mercedes, I talked to her, we're cool.
You're fine, Sam.
Just take a breath so you don't black out on me.
Hey, Coach, I want you to know that I've taken steps to battle the scourge of cisnormativity - Uh-huh.
- And transmisogyny.
And some other terms I had never heard of until I did a quick Wikipedia search this morning.
Um, thanks, but I just want things to go - right on back to normal.
- Yeah, yeah.
Oh, good 'cause I wro had this list of all these pronouns.
I mean, you just tell me which one and I'll enforce it.
There's he, there's sh-he, there's it, zhim, ze I-I think he and him works fine.
Now, Coach, as you know, I've always been quite vocal about my opposition to bullying in any form.
And I want you to know that I am here for you as a friend, ally and a shoulder to cry on.
Metaphorically, of course.
Because you're a man now and real men don't cry.
I got to say I'm impressed, Sue.
I kind of figured someone would say something.
Or gawk at me funny or Coach, you will be happy to know that McKinley High is now a fully gender-fluid high school.
- Wow.
- All right? Now, if you'll excuse me, out of the corner of my eye I see a fatty who could use a good, healthy fat shaming.
Hmm.
Uh, well, you know, I should probably get going.
Yeah, I got to go meet Rachel and, um High five! Yeah, that's some strength, huh? Morning! What's wrong? Are you still upset about getting egged - and stuff? - No, Sam, something happened.
Something way worse.
Early this morning, I was fast asleep, and I was having the most amazing dream that I was on Broadway and there was all this pudding.
And then I woke up to this pounding! At first I thought it was just a really big woodpecker.
Or maybe a neighbor was installing an in-ground pool.
But then I saw what it was.
My dad sold our house! Wait, but isn't, isn't that a good thing? You said it's been on the market for a while now, and every time they had an offer, the buyer just backed out at the last minute.
Yes! That's because I was sabotaging it! The shower has vintage tile.
Rachel, that's insane.
Sam, it's the only house I've ever known.
It's the house that I grew up in.
And-and I just really, I-I hate the idea that in a couple of days it's gonna be someone else's.
All right, listen.
As somebody who sometimes didn't have any home at all No, no.
Mm-mm! Mm-mm! No way.
I am not gonna let you guilt me into going along with this because you once were homeless! Okay? I'm sorry, but that has nothing to do with this.
I just I'm not ready to say good-bye.
And I will be damned if I let my dads go through with this.
Hey, guys, hey.
Thanks for coming.
Oh, for the love of all that's sacred, what now? Uh, well, I called you here today because of Rachel.
Seriously? I just finished mentoring that girl for, like, a week what could she possibly need now? - Do you want to? - Her dad just sold their house.
She has less than a week to get out.
That house means everything to her.
It's where she grew up.
It's where she saw her dreams become a reality.
Guys, this is a major moment for her.
Okay? She's becoming a new person.
Making one of the biggest transitions of all.
One that we are all gonna have to make soon.
Okay, just so we're clear.
We're still talking about Rachel, right? Or are you announcing your new gender? Oh, my God! No! This is all about Rachel! Look, guys, she's growing up.
We all are.
So, what's the plan, Sam? - You want to see me? - Have a seat, William.
Hey, Sheldon.
How you doing? Wait, what's going on? It's not a big deal.
Sue's just making a big stink over nothing.
America's newest male Sheldon Beiste arrived in our parking lot yesterday to find his car vandalized with a horribly offensive word.
Oh, my God.
That's terrible.
Sheldon, I'm so sorry.
It's all right.
I knew that there was a possibility that something like this was gonna happen.
So when it did, I wasn't all that surprised.
I-I'm sorry.
Just, um, you-you said it happened here, so what does this have to do with me? Newly boobless, would you like to tell him or shall I? They wore Carmel colors, Will.
They were from Vocal Adrenaline.
They were your kids.
Are you serious? No one goes after one of my friends and gets away with it.
Except for me.
I always go after your friends, and I've never not gotten away with it.
I'm sorry.
Okay, you guys, let's get started on this week's lesson.
It is called buckeye bull's-eye, featuring all artists from Ohio! Marilyn Manson and Dean Martin Actually, Rachel, there has been a slight change in plans.
Kurt, you can't just change the lesson like that.
Well, sometimes life throws you a curveball, and you just got to embrace it.
That's why this week's lesson is Transitioning.
Changing.
Charging forward.
Rachel, it's come to our attention that you have some challenges with saying good-bye to your childhood home.
Which is forcing you to say good-bye to your childhood and fully accept adulthood.
Or at least that's according to the very nice lady at the Lima Mental Health Clinic.
So to help Rachel with this new transition, we are throwing her a "farewell to Rachel's house" party, and everyone's invited.
It's going to be Friday night in Rachel's basement.
You guys, this is very unnecessary but very sweet.
Wait, so this lesson isn't - for us? - It's for Rachel? - Yeah, so shut up.
- Fetch me my wheel! Thank you.
Welcome to Wheel of Musical Fortune! Thank you.
Thank you.
Everyone spins, and whoever's name you land on, you have to sing a duet with them at the party.
All except for me.
'Cause I told you I want to sing with Rachel.
- I don't want to chance it.
- Fine.
Whatever.
Can't we just pick names out of a hat? Okay, I'll go first.
Luck be a lady tonight! Roderick.
Which-which one? Uh, me.
I'm-I'm Roderick.
No, this is gonna be great.
You're great.
Okay, my turn! Oh.
Huh.
Well, I thought for sure that wheel was gonna land on Artie's name.
Yeah, what are the odds? Uh, ten to one.
Not that high.
But you're totally cool with singing with me, right? I-I understand if not.
Yeah, no, I really want to.
It's-it's just If you see Dave, just don't bring it up, okay? Oh, come on.
It's just a song.
He can't be jealous from that.
I know, but I think that he thinks that there's still something between us.
Which there obviously isn't.
Obviously.
Anyway, I'll call you.
We'll figure out what we're doing.
We can do something up-tempo.
Or-or slow.
It doesn't matter.
I'm versatile.
Okay.
Cool.
All right.
I'll call you.
Who was it? I just heard.
I want names.
Which one of those Vocal Adrenaline bastards did it? What the fall leaves are you talking about, pumpkin? Your car, the vandalism.
Which one of those rock lobsters was it? - It doesn't matter.
- We're gonna kill those guys, Coach.
No, you're not gonna kill anybody.
You boys sit down.
Sit down! I don't want you guys doing anything about this, you hear me? It's been handled.
It's real sweet that you guys care, but hurting him isn't gonna fix anything.
It'll teach them not to mess with any of us or we'll destroy them.
I've been dealing with ignorant people who couldn't understand me my whole life.
But you know what? I couldn't be happier with myself.
How many people get to say that? And, Spencer, I'm glad to hear you say that you're one of us.
That's all I've ever wanted to hear from you, is that you're more than just a star player but that you're really part of this team.
And, Sam, you did that.
You united us.
You're a hell of a coach and a friend.
And if one good thing can come out of this whole mess, well, then they gave us the best freaking gift in the whole world.
Coach, look, I'm sorry.
I didn't I didn't mean to disappoint you.
I just I can't stand to see my friends get hurt.
I know that, Sam.
And you did not disappoint me.
In fact, I couldn't be prouder.
Boys, get back to practice.
This is completely unacceptable.
I can handle insubordination, but this, this isn't about me.
This is about teaching you to act like human beings.
It's about knowing that your-your common decency and integrity are-are more important than winning show choir competitions.
Which perfectly sums up your teaching style, Schuester.
You think all of us didn't know you were too soft for this job? You have a loser mentality.
You know who didn't give a crap about being kind? Lewis and Clark.
George Patton.
Paul Anka.
I don't want to be decent or liked.
I want to be a champion.
And this is how it's done.
The fact is Vocal Adrenaline is the last of a great dying breed of communities that is willing to risk being called bad guys and accept the hard truth, which is that every person on the planet knows winning is everything.
We will win nationals, - but we'll win it the right way.
- When will you just accept that you don't belong here, that none of us like you, that we make fun of your vests and your pep talks behind your back? - You're a joke.
- Yeah, well, the joke's on you, Clint.
You're off the team.
You can't kick me off the team.
I am the team! Get out.
Now.
Okay.
Everybody warm up.
Come to bed, Will.
Oh.
Maybe just have a shower first because you're touching that wheel that touched the ground.
You would think a stroller that costs as much as a mortgage payment would not break a week after you got it.
Okay.
You're talking in your angry man voice.
I'm sorry.
It's just I'm stuck.
I really don't like my job.
I don't like the people or the environment, and it's not gonna change because they don't think there's anything wrong.
I kicked that kid off the team today, but I know that's not the end of it.
Those boosters are gonna come after me.
Okay, well, look, I don't need any of this stuff.
It's not like we'd have to go on food stamps if you quit and found another job.
I know some teachers who are.
And we've talked about this, Emma.
There are no other jobs.
Not ones where I can coach show choir.
You know what the worst part is? I love all this extra stuff.
I love my fancy car and fancy stroller and fancy football tickets.
Maybe that makes me shallow and immature, but all this extra stuff makes me feel like more of a man.
And I hate myself for loving it so much that I would stay working at a place that stands for everything I stand against.
Okay.
So we'll manage.
You know? You'll find another job.
My pamphlet of the month club is starting to bring in some extra cash.
A year ago, I would have.
You can be principled when you don't have kids to feed and clothe.
Well, I think when you have kids is when it's most important to be principled.
He's gonna be watching you, Will.
Kids see everything.
You can't hide anything from them.
I mean, when you buy him something, he's gonna see your pride and your shame.
He's gonna know when you traded your integrity for comfort and safety.
Look, I'm not saying that you have to quit your job.
I understand the realities of that.
I do.
But I am saying you need to make a peace with whatever choice you do make.
Okay? Yeah.
Snuck a little something extra in there for you, Kurt.
Hello, everyone.

Wow.
The Rachel Berry childhood bedroom.
Is it weird to think that someday this room's gonna be recreated in some Broadway museum? Hopefully with animatronic robots.
You said you wouldn't make fun of it.
Oh, man, is that from Rocky Horror? Do you remember when I had to wear those tight gold shorts? I think everyone remembers that.
Wow.
You can't do it, can you? I mean, almost everything else is boxed up, but you haven't even touched this wall.
All my best memories from high school are on that wall.
My whole childhood I just spent in this room singing and dreaming, all alone with pictures of Barbara Streisand and Patti Lupone and Bernadette Peters.
But then I met you guys and suddenly the wall started to fill up with real friends and real dreams.
I don't know.
Everything's just so clear in high school and I'm supposed to just pack it all up now? We're gonna need a bigger wall.
Mm Star Wars.
It's it's Jaws.
Oh.
Jeez, what were you, raised by monks? Come here.
The wall doesn't go away.
The wall just gets bigger.
And higher and plastered in dreams.
You're going to get that part.
And you're going back to New York.
And you're taking that wall with you.
If I'm real lucky, then I'll always be on it somewhere, wearing incredibly tight, sparkly gold shorts.
Whoa! Yeah.
Thank you.
Good job.
Just when you thought we couldn't get any more warmth and love in a basement, it's time to bring out your two favorite gays, Kurt Hummel and Blaine Anderson.
Who's around when the days feel long who's around when you can't be strong who's around when you're losing your mind hey Who cares that you get home safe Who knows you can't be replaced who thinks that you're one of a kind oh yeah Somebody misses you When you're away They wanna wake up with you every day somebody wants to hear you say Ooh, somebody loves you ooh, somebody loves you Ooh, somebody loves you ooh, somebody loves you Ooh, somebody loves you Why don't you come on over why don't you lay me down lay me down Does the pain feel better when I'm around if I am good to you - won't you be good to me - good to me that's how easy this should be Somebody misses you - when you're away - somebody misses you, baby - they wanna wake up with you every day - they wanna - wake up with you - somebody wants - to hear you say - oh, they want you to say ooh, somebody loves you ooh, somebody loves you Ooh, somebody loves you ooh, somebody loves you Ooh, somebody loves you ooh, somebody loves you.
Are you sure you have to go? Doesn't sound like we're done in there.
I-I wish I could, but Dave and I we have to wake up at 5:00 a.
m.
sharp for the intramural football game in Bowling Green.
Well, anyway, I had a lot of fun singing with you tonight.
- I thought we sounded pretty good.
- I thought we sounded incredible.
We haven't sounded that good since the very first duet that we did.
- Do you remember what it was? - No, I'm blanking.
I'm kidding, of course I do.
It was "Baby, it's cold outside".
The entire time we were singing I just wanted to turn off that damn boom box and confess my undying love for you and give you the world's most passionate kiss.
Oh, yeah? Well, why didn't you? I wasn't sure if you felt the same way.
And you didn't.
Remember that guy you had a crush on? The assistant manager to the Gap? The what was his name? Um, uh, Jonathan, - or, uh, Jebediah? - Jer-Jeremiah.
Jeremiah.
Yeah, whatever happened to him? I have no clue.
Mm.
It's funny how someone could mean so much to you at one point in time and then a few years go by and Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick and think of you Caught up in circles confusion is nothing new flashback warm nights almost left behind suitcases of memories time after Sometimes you picture me I'm walking too far ahead you're calling to me I can't hear what you've said Then you say go slow I fall behind the second hand unwinds If you're lost you can look and you will find me Time after time If you fall I will catch you - I'll be waiting - I will be waiting time after time You said go slow I fall behind the second hand unwinds if you're lost you can look and you will find me time after time if you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting time after time if you're lost you can look and you will find me time after time if you fall I will catch you I will be waiting time after time time after time Time after time time after time.
As I live and breathe.
Unique.
Oh, girl.
How come you didn't call me? I had to find out my trans-gossip from Will Schuester.
You're right.
I should have called.
I just didn't know what to say to people.
You know? It's all been a bit overwhelming.
Being back at McKinley or the surgery? About being myself, you know? Trying to fit in.
You know, I did this because I needed to follow how I felt inside.
And I finally feel so normal inside.
But Nobody's treating me like I am normal.
That's because you're not normal.
You're special.
And not because of some surgery, but because you're brave enough to go out and get something when you want it.
I don't want to always be special, though.
Does that make sense? I just want to be one of the guys.
But there's no one else like me here.
You know, people either fawn over me or they hate me because they don't understand me.
Can I ask you something? - Did it hurt? - Are you joking? Like a bucket of hammers being dumped on my chest.
But the weird thing it felt like they never should have been there in the first place.
Do you have any regrets? Not for a second.
That feeling of relief I have now of finally being who I've always wanted to be it's the best thing that's ever happened to me.
I just I wish sometimes I wasn't going through it all alone.
You're not alone.
Hey, Mr.
Schuester, I'm not sure if you heard, but when Jimbo Wilson found out that you kicked me off the team, he threw a tizzy and told Principal Gunderson to reinstate me.
If you have a problem with that and I hope you do Jimbo says to call him personally.
I don't have a problem with that.
He's right.
And I was wrong.
You are this team.
You represent everything this place stands for, and I have put my personal beliefs ahead of the reality of what Vocal Adrenaline is.
To be honest, I was thinking about quitting.
But then I realized I still may be able to teach you guys a thing or two.
That said, you certainly have found the formula to winning.
Who am I to try to change that? So as long as I'm coaching here, we win the V.
A.
way.
- Yeah! - Yeah! That's what I'm talking about.
And to prove to you guys that I'm serious, I have come up with a prank to end all pranks.
Bring it in.
Tonight, we sneak into McKinley High, and I will show you all that nobody understands psychological warfare better than William Schuester.
Yeah! You know, I told them if they put that clumsy, fatass Craig on defense we'd blow the game and what do they do? They put that clumsy, fatass Craig on defense, right? It's unbelievable.
Okay.
What? Oh, what's what? Whatever it is that you've been staring into space over for days.
I mean, you've said, like, two words.
Sorry.
Something happened that night at Rachel's party, didn't it? I sang a duet with Kurt.
It was Rachel's idea, okay? It was, uh It was a silly glee club thing.
I don't even know why I haven't told you about it.
Why would I be upset that you sang a duet with Kurt? You guys don't stop singing.
That's not it.
Oh, man.
Dave Just tell me one thing.
Did he kiss you, or did you kiss him? I knew it.
Well guess I was lucky enough to get a couple of months in with you, huh? - What does that mean? - It means you still love him.
You never stopped.
Ever since Kurt came back to Lima, there's been this ticking clock hanging over us.
Time's up.
I'm sorry, Dave.
I-I didn't I didn't mean to It's okay.
It's okay.
I know.
Hey No hard feelings, okay? And you know that clumsy, fat-ass Craig? He tried to slip me his number at the game.
Look, there's a whole world of guys out there waiting to be my rebound.
Go.
It's okay.
Go.
Tell Kurt.
Uh, just do me a favor? Don't sing it.
Just say it.
Oh.
Hi, Blaine.
Uh, we were just leaving.
Oh, Walter, this is Blaine.
Ah.
Of course.
The Blaine.
Always nice to put a face to the name.
Ooh.
Neat bowtie.
I'm sorry.
Were you looking for me? No.
Uh, I was just looking for Rachel.
I-I wanted to tell her something.
Oh, hey, Blaine.
Did you want to ask me something? Uh, wh-where's everybody going? Oh, we're going on a double date.
Walter and I have a shared love for musical flops.
Oh, yeah.
And Walter and I had this mutual love for the delicious chicken parm dipping balls they got at Breadstix.
Oh, my gosh, they're so delicious.
Well, next time, maybe you can bring Karofsky, and we'll triple date it.
Oh, hey, did you want to ask me something.
You know what? I forgot.
Okay.
Okay, here's my plan.
We're gonna go backstage where I have left two boxes of k-y jelly tubes.
All right? Everyone grab a tube and squirt out every last drop onto the stage floor.
All right, everyone, huddle up.
We're gonna watch those fools literally fall on their faces.
There's a light in the darkness though the night is black as my skin There's a light burning bright Showing me the way but I know where I've been There's a cry ooh-ooh - In the distance - ooh - It's a voice - ooh That comes from deep within - there's a cry asking why - ooh, ooh, ooh - I pray the answer's up ahead - ooh, ooh, ooh 'Cause I know where I've been - There's a road - ooh - We've been travelin' - ooh - Lost so many - ooh On the way but the riches Oh, but the riches will be plenty The riches will be plenty - yeah - worth the risk - Worth the risk - and the chances - And the chances - we take Take - There's a dream - there's a dream There's a dream in the future There's a struggle - struggle - that we have yet to win we have yet to win - Use that pride - use that pride - In our hearts - in our hearts - Oh, oh, oh - to lift us up until tomorrow - oh, oh, oh - 'cause just to sit still would be a sin I know it, I know it, I know it, I know it Lord knows I know Where I've been Oh, when we win I'll give thanks to my God 'cause I know where I've - been.
- yeah, yeah, yeah.
Yes! I knew you were full of crap.
Your little "kum-bah-yah" lesson here cost us two hours of valuable rehearsal time, and you can bet the booster association is gonna hear about it.
You know, I started teaching glee club because I care about the arts.
And that means a lot more than just practicing 24/7 like militant robots.
It means finding yourself in the music, and sometimes it means taking a week off of sectionals practice to do something to make your friend feel good.
At least that's what it meant when I worked at McKinley.
And I'm not willing to sacrifice that anymore.
So if you guys want to continue to be intolerant trouble-makers, go for it, because I quit.
You can't do that, Will.
Oh, I just did, and it's not because of you.
It's because Unique came to me, and we spent all week gathering this transgender choir, to make you feel welcomed and at home.
Attention Vocal Adrenaline members, I will give you six minutes to leave campus before I unleash my hounds.
Also, I've slashed all the tires on your bus so you'll have to walk home.
Perhaps you can use this march of death opportunity to consider how awful you really are.
So what are you gonna do now? I don't know.
I mean, I guess I have to eventually find a new job, but, honestly, Carmel paid so well that we have enough savings to last a few months, so I can figure things out.
I am honestly so proud of what you guys are doing here.
And if I ever doubted that there needed to be somebody out there to balance out the evil empire of Vocal Adrenaline, I am a true believer now.
Well, there is a job.
It doesn't really pay much.
Actually, it doesn't pay anything at all, but, well, Kurt and I were wondering if-if you had the time, or if you would even consider being the special alumni consultant for the New Directions!? Did you just make up that title right now? Yes, I just made that up right now.
I absolutely did.
But Kurt and I were talking, and we could really use your help.
Coming up with these weekly lessons is a lot harder than we thought.
Okay.
Okay, as in, you'll think about it? No.
Okay, as in, I would be honored to help.
That's great.
But I have, uh, two conditions.
One you guys have to make all of the major decisions.
And two you both have to start calling me Will.
Yes, I can definitely do that.
No.
I don't think I could ever call you "Will.
" That no.
- I - Ah.
I mean, you guys are just passing through this place again, but I'm beginning to realize that this is where I belong.
This choir room is who I am.
And I can't wait to see the look on Sue's face when I tell her.
So, what's the lesson for next week? Well, Kurt wants to do another Britney 3.
0, but, honestly, there's no more songs left in her catalog.
- Tons of songs.
- Well, do the kids have any personal problems? We don't really know.
We don't spend too much time talking to them.
Well, you should.
Get to know them.
Because one day, they may be the best friends you've ever had.
