  • Decent

    I thought this episode was okay. Not hilarious or insightful or anything, but it did have some good plot points and a touch of humor. The characters continued in their conflicts and in the end the football players were allowed to participate in Glee and their athletic team. Not the best episode but definitely not the worst.
  • I love this is funny and the music and dancing is fantastic. Love the Beyonce put a ring on it episode....cracked me up!!

    I love this show....all of the characters are perfectly cast. One of my favorite episodes is the Beyonce video Put a ring on it. Watching so guys do that dance was sooooooo funny. But when he told his father he was gay and his dad told him he already knew was gay and he loved him anyway it made me cry. There is just a little bit of everything on this show. Drama, love, sex, dancing, sports. If you have not watched it yet please do so soon. You will be hooked and loving it. I am not sure if they actually do the singing themselves but it is great either way.moreless
  • Hilarious...I love Emma and Sure. Actually I love everyone on this show.

    This show is completely hilarious. The whole thing with Sure falling in love and turning nice for a bit was genius. She is probably my favourite character on the show, comedy gold. Emma is also a brilliant character and I loved her and Will's dance here. I don't think it was actually her singing but it was still a great scene. When will she dump Ken and get with Will? Soon hopefully.

    I liked how Puck was featured a bit more here. Loved how he sing 'Sweet Carline' to Rachel to prove that he was brave enough. I never expected those two to ever get was a bit out of the blue but enjoyable. It was great how they both spoke about liking Quinn and Finn. That's interesting. I wonder when it will surface that Puck is the real father?

    Episode highlight: Gotta be Kurt 'taking one for the team' by throwing that slushy over himself. As usual the songs, the humour and the characters made this really entertaining. Can't wait till it returns in a week or two...moreless
  • Amazing episode & loved the song choice for the character Puck

    I loved this episode. Its the first time I've actually seen the character Puck get a solo & it was amazing to watch! I just couldn't stop smiling when he was singing the words "Sweet Caroline" towards the end of the song when his voice went deep. I loved the fact that they actually put Puck & Rachel together. Ever since I watched the first episode I've been pulling for them. They make such an interesting couple, he's the school bad-boy and she's the annoying but at the same time sweet good-girl. They make a great couple. I hope in future episodes they have more scenes together.moreless
  • Very good episode

    I thought this episode was really good really funny i thought their should of been more of the kids singing and less of mr shou (please no dancing next episode), but the sub plots were great i loved lynch in the swingers i thought it was cute. Um not a sub plot but i loved rachel and noah together i know that in the show rachel supposed to be in love with fin blah blah, but i thought her and puk had the best chemistry especially that scene where she was washing his head, excited for next week can't wait. Bring back noah and rachel.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Will: I wanted to talk to you about your wedding mash-up. I've been working really hard on it and... I just can't get those two songs to go together.
      Emma: Yeah, that's because they don't. We both know that. They're both good songs, though.
      Will: Great ones.

    • Sue: I hear people say "that's not how I define marriage." Well to them I say "love knows no bounds." Why can't people marry dogs? I'm certainly not advocating intimacy with your pets, I for one think intimacy has no place in a marriage. Walked in on my parents once and it was like seeing two walruses wrestling. So woof, I'm pro-15-Ohio. And that's how Sue... C's it.

    • Sue: Schuester!
      Will: Yeah.
      Sue: I'll need to see that set list for sectionals after all. I want it on my desk warm from the laminator at 5pm and if it is one minute late I will go to the animal shelter and get you a kitty cat I will let you fall in love with that kitty cat and then on some dark cold night I will steal away into your home and punch you in the face.

    • Puck: God, what's the matter with me? I'm a stud and I can't even hold onto a chick like you. No offense. (pause) Why don't girls like me?
      Rachel: Because you're kind of a jerk. No offense.

    • Kurt: You've been getting so much pressure from the gorillas on the football team. I guess they didn't appreciate me resigning from the team and choosing Glee.
      Finn: Probably would have went over better if you didn't announce it in the showers.

    • Rachel: I can't give myself to someone who isn't...brave enough to sing a solo. If you don't have the guts to do that then-then-then how are you going be bold enough to deal with the ups and downs of loving an admittedly high-maintenance girl like me.
      Puck: Are you questioning my bad-assedness? Have you seen my guns?

    • Puck: When I woke up I knew it was more than a dream, it was a message from God. Rachel was a hot Jew and the good Lord wanted me to get into her pants.

    • Quinn: (to Emma) I can't believe we're saying this, but we need some advice on how to be cool.
      Finn: Yeah, you must have picked up some ideas about what cool people do from watching them over the years.

    • Ken: As you know, even though she refuses to wear the ring and won't tell anyone including her mother about the engagement: Emma and I are in fact getting married.
      Emma: Yes, and Ken has convinced me that we need to at least be in the same room when the marriage is certified.
      Ken: What can I say, I'm a traditionalist.
