Glee s06e13 Episode Script

Dreams Come True

__ Show circle, everybody.
Welcome to Nationals.
I want you guys to remember something.
Glee Club is not about competition.
It's about something deeper.
Glee is about opening yourself up to joy.
Whoa! It's time.
Can't remember the last time I was this nervous.
Oh, well, you don't look nervous at all.
You look great.
Are you ready? Yeah.
20, count 'em, 20 of this nation's best high school show choirs have poured out their talent all over this stage.
And now we're down to the best of the best.
From Greenville, South Carolina, the Harmony Busters.
From Lima, Ohio, the New Directions! And from Portland, Oregon, the Soprano-gasms.
Only one of these amazing teams can claim the title of the best high school show choir in America.
In third place, it's the Harmony Busters.
And now, the first place winner of the 2015 high school show choir nationals championship is the New Directions! Uh, uh, I-I'm sorry.
Would you mind saying that again? I-I'm not sure I understood you correctly.
The District Board of Education has decided to make McKinley an arts school.
In a very short time from now, you and I will be standing in the choir room of the William McKinley High School for the Performing Arts.
Wh-Wh-What happened? To be completely honest, Will, you happened.
Over the last decade, school districts across the country have been facing multi-million dollar budget shortfalls.
Yeah.
And our quick fix was eliminating arts programs altogether.
Prioritizing what we would hope would be more essential subjects like math, reading, science.
You know what? We were wrong.
Scores did not go up.
In fact, in some places, they got worse.
But you you refused to let that stop you.
And I decided it was time for me to stick my neck out and make a pitch to the board.
And to my great surprise, they agreed with me.
Superintendent Harris, I mean this is incredible news.
Please, please, if-if there's anything I can do to help, just-just let me know.
What are you talking about? I'm gonna have you run the school.
Uh, I beg your pardon? I'm making you principal, Will.
Congratulations.
Okay.
Wait, now, remember.
What? That cookie is for dessert.
Oh, come on.
Okay? That is not an appetizer, all right? Now that you're the principal, you have to set a good nutritional example for the other teachers I don't know if I can live up to that standard.
You're just gonna have to come have lunch with me every single day.
Oh, my goodness, Will.
Will! We have to do everything possible to be appropriate and professional now that you are management.
I am never gonna have to worry about getting funding for another Glee Club costume or paint brushes or tap shoes for a kid who can't afford them.
Our son will be in the day care that we set up in the gym.
And my beautiful wife will be right down the hall, working tirelessly to help kids get into the best arts colleges in the world.
Oh, my goodness.
I'm so proud of you, Will.
It has been quite a journey to get to this place.
And you've made it the whole way without losing your integrity.
Except for those days when you were rapping.
Can I be honest with you about something? I am scared to death.
Do I have the talent to actually do the job? Will, you're the most talented man in the world.
Or at least in Ohio.
That's more like it.
Right.
I'm serious you don't have anything to be scared about.
I'm not saying that it's gonna be easy, but I am saying now is the time for you and I to relax and have fun Yeah.
and be in love, right? Because if we don't like something now, we can you know, we can fix it.
So no more bad guys.
It is just you and me and the power of our imaginations.
I love you so much.
I love you.
Now go get your son, Mr.
Shue, and I will see you at school.
All right.
You see that, Danny? Dreams really do come true.
Yeah.
Here he is! Wow, um I have to say this is the most exciting first day of Glee Club that we have ever had.
No offense to the alumni who have been here since the very first-ever Glee Club meeting.
All right, please, everyone, have a seat.
So, Mr.
Shue when are you gonna start auditions? Yeah, I think you're gonna have trouble sticking to your whole "whoever wants in, gets in" rule.
Not true, Mr.
Hummel.
The New Directions! will be only one of the glee clubs at this school.
I'm bringing back the Troubletones and starting an all-boys version called the Duly Noted.
And we're also gonna have a junior varsity squad for those who feel like they need a little seasoning before they're ready for the big time.
So, wait, how are you gonna teach all those glee clubs and run a school? I'm not.
I'm actually not coaching any of them.
Not even the New Directions? Well, uh, I've interviewed a a candidate for that particular job that I really like.
But until then, I wanted to say farewell to you all with a song that I prepared for this occasion.
My life changed because of all the magic that we created in this room.
And if I've learned one thing, it's the message in the lyrics of this song.
This is for you guys.
You Who are on the road Must have a code That you can live by And so Become yourself Because the past Is just a good-bye Teach Your children well Their father's hell Will slowly go by And feed Them on your dreams The one they picks The one you'll know by Don't you ever ask them why If they told you, you would cry So just look at them and sigh And know they love you You Of tender years Can't know the fears That your elders grew by And so please help Them with your youth They seek the truth Before they can die Teach Your parents well Their children's hell Will slowly go by And feed Them on your dreams The one they picks The one you'll know by Don't you ever ask them why If they told you, you would cry So just look at them and sigh And know they love you.
Come on a little Hey, what are you doing? Oh, uh, just a little inventory.
We got to do it before we sell all this stuff.
I mean, all these balls are under one PSI, so they're basically, uh, useless unless we fill them up to 12.
5.
So listen, um, considering that you're going to be unemployed somewhat soon, I was wondering you'd given any thought to maybe, I don't know, moving back to New York.
We have this spare room for you it-it's perfect.
It's really small; it's more of, like, a closet, really, but Uh, yeah.
No, we talked about this before.
I told you that New York's not my speed.
It's too fast; it's too loud; there's too many sports teams, so I get confused on who I'm supposed to root for.
We just root for whichever one's winning.
Okay, that's something Kurt would say.
That's what happens when you get married.
Kurt and I are really happy, all right? That's good.
W-We're having a very good life together.
We see everybody We see Rachel, we see Artie, Brittany, Santana, Kitty It's a lot of fun, but I miss my best friend.
Dude, I miss you, too, man, you know? But this is home, okay? I need to be out in the wide-open spaces.
I need to be able to just go out on the weekends and just shoot stuff if I want to.
Look, I'm happy.
I am genuinely happy here, okay? This is where I'm meant to be.
I just don't want you to waste all of your talent.
I'm not I'm using all of my talent in my new job.
All right.
Congratulations to all of you.
You have been selected as the best of the best.
You are this year's New Directions! Now I would like to introduce you all to your new teacher, Mr.
Sam Evans.
Wait, hold on, no.
Y-You're taking over the glee club? Jealous? Yeah.
I could not be more proud to pass the baton off to you.
Go get 'em, buddy.
All right, all right, all right.
So look, I've been thinking a lot about the first week's lesson.
This week, your assignment is country! Uh-oh.
Let's see where he goes with this.
Country and blues come from the same roots.
The hardship of a rural life.
Country uses little personal stories about breakups or broken-down pickups to express the deeper pains of poverty and anxiety that was in still, uh, such a normal part of life in the American South.
Now, if we want to be great, we need to be able to sing about hurt and loss.
And even if we can't relate to the specifics, make them our own.
So who wants to start us off with a country song? Let's do "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy.
" Yeah.
Okay.
Well, looks like we're all right where we belong.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
Okay, wait.
Stop right there.
I just want you guys to come in and listen, because I have to get through this without crying.
Okay, I have officially been picked up to be the opening act for Beyoncé's new world tour.
Effective immediately.
- Yay! - I know.
You know, ever since I've been back, I've just been walking these halls, trying to remember how invisible I used to feel.
And the funny thing is It's getting really hard to remember that Mercedes.
Even when I got the call earlier, I didn't think, "Oh, this must be some kind of mistake," or, you know, "They must not mean me.
" That's because of you guys.
Having friends like you really did change me.
You made me know that good things are possible.
It's not really it's not really that common to come by and I'll remember you guys for it.
No, no, no, no, do not come up here, because that is not even the hard part, and if you come up here now, I am gonna lose it, and I am determined to walk out of here with some class.
So, between the tour and rehearsals and me cutting an album right after, I won't be seeing you guys for a while.
Maybe even a-a long while.
You know, we'll keep in touch, but it's not gonna be the same, and I think that we've all had enough group hugs that can last us a lifetime.
So, I wanted to say good-bye my way with a song.
And then, I want to walk out of here like I'm gonna be seeing everybody in Glee Club tomorrow, and like it's not really good-bye.
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh Someday Uh-huh We'll be together We'll be together, yeah-ah-ah-ah You're far away From me, my love Ooh, baby But just as sure, my, my baby As there are stars above I wanna say, I wanna say, I wanna say Someday we'll be together Someday We're gonna be together, be together, baby Someday We'll be together We'll be together, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh A long time ago, my, my sweet thing I made a big mistake, honey I-I-I say, I-I-I-I said good-bye Oh, oh, baby, ever Ever Ever and ever and ever and ever Ever since that day now, now, now All I All I wanna do All I wanna do All I wanna do Oh, is cry, cry, cry Hey, hey I long for you Oh-oh-oh, baby Every, every night Ooh, just to kiss your sweet, sweet lips, baby Just to kiss your sweet lips Hold you ever, ever so tight I wanna say, ooh I wanna say Someday Oh! We'll be together Yeah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah Ooh, someday Someday We'll be together Yeah, we'll be together, yes, we will Ooh, someday Someday We'll be together I, I-I-I-I-I, I know Ooh, someday Someday We'll be together! Mercedes Jones has left the building.
Oh, hello, Porcelain.
Mrs.
Porcelain.
What are you doing, Sue? Well, I just came in to, uh, drink in the old office one last time, and to drop a hot one in the middle of Will's desk.
But that seemed childish, so, I, uh, just peed everywhere.
Can you have a seat for-for a second? We wanted to talk to you.
As you probably already know, Blaine and I are leaving for New York in a few days, but before we leave, we wanted to thank you for getting us back together.
If it hadn't been for you, we would still be apart, and we would still be miserable.
So thank you.
We really meant it: thank you.
Porcelain The first moment I laid eyes on you, I truly didn't understand what I was looking at.
With your hippo broaches and your knee-length sweaters, standing there all sassy with your arms crossed and your hips all cocked out, and your eyes rolled back as if to say, "Oh, how droll.
" But then, I got to know you.
And even though you still constantly annoyed me, I got to watch you go through what you went through.
The whole coming-out thing with your dad, the death threats from the bully whom Blaine later dated.
I never knew I had thoughts and feelings about those things until I watched you go through them.
But you expanded my mind.
You taught me things about myself that I would have never discovered on my own.
And for that, I thank you.
Thank you.
Blaine I still don't really get you.
Um, I guess I just am not a fan of your thing.
But, hey, you're doing you and that's swell.
Thank you, Sue.
I feel the same way about you.
And now, if you'll excuse me, there's somebody I need to see.
I was coming to see you! I was coming to see you, too! Oh! Coach, I'm sorry that I said those horrible things to a horrible adult.
Oh, honey, I'm the one who's sorry.
I've been treating you like an unpaid intern, when I should have been treating you like a paid intern.
But honey, there's still one last person I have to see.
- All right.
- All right, babe.
Hey, Sue.
You wanted to see me? Uh, what's what's going on? I don't wanna talk About things we've gone through Nothing more to say No more ace to play The winner takes it all The loser's standing small Beside the victory That's her destiny But tell me, does she kiss Like I used to kiss you? Does it feel the same When she calls your name? Butt Chin The game is on again A lover or a friend A big thing or a small The winner takes it all I don't wanna talk If it makes you feel sad And I understand You've come to shake my hand The winner takes it all The winner takes it all The winner takes it all The winner takes it all The winner takes it all The loser has to fall The winner takes It all! Look, I know why you want Brad! __ Snipers stand down.
Pocahontas has landed.
Welcome back, everybody.
President Jeb Bush will win the crucial battleground state of Ohio, and reelection to a second term as President of the United States.
With me now, before she heads down to Times Square to meet the president and the crowd of tens of thousands, the vice president, Sue Sylvester.
Madam Vice President, thank you so much for being here.
Well, thank you, Geraldo.
And I just spoke to the president, and he was curious about where I was, and I told him that victory rally could wait until I had a chat with my old buddy Geraldo.
Now, Madam Vice President, I have to ask you, will you be running for president in 2024? You bet your sweet ass, Geraldo.
Well, folks, you heard it here first the vice president.
Thank you very much.
Congratulations to you.
We'll be back with more election night coverage right after this.
I wanted to make a time capsule of my time at McKinley.
I know it's stupid, but it'd give me a reason to come back every once in a while.
Oh, it's really, really sweet.
I have programs from our show choir competitions, and and oh, my Rocky Horror Picture Show wig, and oh, my Gaga heels, and, uh and, oh, my favorite photo of Finn, and oh, prom queen crown and, oh, our picture from prom, and the ring you got me that Christmas.
Wh Wh-Why are you crying and laughing at the same time? Because you're the only person I know that would do something like this.
You're the only one.
And-and that is why I love you so much.
I love you, too.
Kids, we have two very special guests here at the Harvey Milk School for Career Day and Celebrity Tuesday Singalong.
Kurt Hummel and Blaine Anderson are coming, because I think they're just inspirational.
Recently, they performed the first LGBTQ version of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf at Lincoln Center.
So please give a warm, Harvey Milk Elementary School welcome to Kurt and Blaine! Hello.
We are so excited to be here.
It is so cool to be in a place where it's safe and okay to be who you are.
It kind of reminds us of our school.
Mm-hmm.
Or at least one room in our school.
And that was called the choir room.
Now that's because we had an amazing teacher who accepted us.
Well, all of us.
Yeah.
So we want to encourage all of you guys to be proud of who you are and to find friends that accept you and to not only dream, but to dream big and surround yourself with people who can help those dreams come true.

Mercedes! We have amazing news.
Remember that movie that Artie wrote for you but you were too busy on your own world tour so we gave it to me? Well, it got into Sundance Film Festival.
No, Tina, I told you it got into Slamdance.
Also, big favor, Mercedes.
We want to use your songs for the soundtrack.
Oh, my agent usually handles that.
I am kidding.
You can have whatever song you like.
- Guys, come on.
We're gonna be late.
- Oh, yeah.
Oh, did you hear about Sam? He already has a new girlfriend.
Can you believe that? Come on, I don't want to miss a moment.
Well, then, why does he keep texting me? Knock, knock.
Come in! Is it time already? It's time! We're all here! - Hi! We're here! - Hey, Rachel! Oh, no, don't strain yourself.
Please.
I've been sweating my boobs off at Tracy Anderson's for the past nine months.
This baby can have my body now, but then, after that, Mama wants it back.
Well, we got you some, uh, organic juice from this special place in Tribeca.
Thank you.
It's supposed to help the baby's brain grow.
Okay, hold on.
So, I've heard this story from Kurt and Blaine, but now, I want to hear your side.
What in the heck made you say "yes" to being their surrogate? Obviously, there's a full-circle story based on how I was raised, but these guys have just been so amazing.
And I figured, they've given up so much of their lives to make me happy.
The least I could do was give them nine months of mine.
Hi.
Hi.
Oh, I love you guys so much.
You're gonna be the most amazing dads.
I can't wait for that.
Oh, here's my husband! Because I'm ready to get started on a little co-production of our own.
So romantic.
Come on, we're gonna be late.
Okay.
Wish us luck, you guys.
Bye, your guys.
Break a leg.
Bye.
You guys, we'll be praying Bye.
Bye.
Have fun.
Fingers crossed.
So, as a former Tony winner, I feel like I need to give you some pointers of what you're gonna say when you get up there.
I'm not gonna win.
Yes, you are.
You are gonna win.
Really? Okay.
So, when you get up there, you stand up straight, you fake humility, you cry only once when you talk about your dads, and you give all the credit to your incredibly talented director.
Well, he is pretty amazing and handsome, and has the best taste in women.
Here we are.
- You okay? - Whew.
Yeah.
Ladies and gentlemen, presenting the award for Best Actress in a Musical please welcome Broadway's very own Andrew Rannells.
Bad dog! Hey.
- Oh.
- Oh, my gosh.
The nominees for - Oh.
Here we go - Best Actress in a Musical are: Maggie Smith in Miss Jean Brodie's Second Prime.
Willow Smith in Cabaret.
Anne Hathaway in her one-woman show, Anne! exclamation point.
And Rachel Berry in Jane Austen Sings.
And the Tony goes to Rachel Berry in Jane Austen Sings.
Oh, my God.
Thank you.
Oh, my gosh, I, um I-I want to thank my amazing husband and director, Jessie.
And I want to thank my two dads for all of those singing and dancing lessons.
Okay, I want to thank Carmen Tibideaux at NYADA for giving me a second chance at my degree, and to all of my friends at McKinley High.
Um, but I want to dedicate this award to the person who's responsible for getting me on this stage tonight, and that is Mr.
Will Schuester.
Um, Mr.
Shue always taught to my strengths and not my weaknesses, and he cheered the loudest when I soared.
And he picked me up when I was in a million pieces.
He taught me the one great thing that all teachers do, and there are so many of them out there.
And that is, being a part of something special does not make you special.
Something is special because you are a part of it.
Mr.
Shue, I love you so much.
And to all of the boys and girls out there, I just want to say quickly before I walk off the stage, that dreams really do come true, so, thank you.
__ Ladies and gentlemen, the Vice President of the United States.
Fantastic.
Becky? Becky?! It's okay, honey.
He's clean.
You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that "glee," by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy.
Now, it's no secret that for a long time, I thought that was a load of hooey.
As far as I can see, the glee club is nothing more than a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away, and delude themselves that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that out in the the real world, there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak and failure.
You know what? I was exactly right.
But I was wrong about the cowardly part.
What I finally realize, now that I'm well into my late thirties It takes a lot of bravery to look around you, and see the world, not as it is, but as it should be.
A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway.
Glee is about imagining a world like that, and finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it.
That's what Glee Club is.
And for the longest time, I thought that was silly.
And now, I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.
I'm honored to be here to rededicate this theater the Finn Hudson Auditorium.
William, it is with your hard work, in his memory, that you managed to accomplish something unimaginable.
McKinley High School for the Performing Arts has become an overwhelming success, a model for public schools that showcase the arts, now being replicated all across the country.
Congratulations, Will Schuester.
You and your little Glee Club have accomplished something quite remarkable.
And now, without further ado, it is my pleasure to introduce the New Directions! Bah, bah, bah, bah Hope you take that jump Bah, bah You don't fear the fall Bah, bah Bah, bah, bah, bah Hope when the water rises Bah, bah You built a wall Bah, bah Bah, bah, bah, bah Hope when crowd screams out Bah, bah, bah They're screaming your name Bah, bah, bah Bah, bah Hope if everybody runs You choose to stay Bah, bah, bah, bah I hope that you fall in love Bah-bah, bah-bah And it hurts so bad Bah, bah Yeah-ah-ah Bah Oh Bah, bah The only way you can know, you give it all you have Hey, yeah Bah-bah, bah-bah And I hope that you don't suffer Bah-bah, bah-bah But take the pain Bah-bah, bah-bah, bah-bah Bah-bah, bah-bah, bah Hope when the moment comes You'll say I, I, I I did it all I, I, I I did it all I owned every second that this world could give I saw so many places, the things that I did With every broken bone I swear I lived Oh Yeah Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Hey-ey-ey With every broken bone I lived I, I, I I did it all I, I, I I did it all I did it all, yeah I owned every second that this world could give This world could give I saw so many places, the things that I did Yeah, with every broken bone I swear I lived Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Oh, yeah-ah-ah-ah-ah Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh I swear I lived Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Mm, mm-mm Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Mm, mm-mm Mm, mm-mm Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh!
