Kurt and Mercedes play around at the piano when Rachel comes in and tells them, "Ladies, we have a problem. There is a new student at this school named Sunshine who is a Filipina and is shorter than me, which I didn't think was possible and is very unnerving." Mercedes is wondering where she left her tranquillizer gun. But Rachel tells them that Sunshine has a remarkable voice. "I'm very worried. Not for myself, but for my lesser Glee Clubbers who don't get many solos." So she paid $100 to the same jock meatheads who always slushy them to slushy the three of them in front of Sunshine, so she'll see that it sucks to be in Glee Club and decide not to join. Rachel waits for their grateful praise, but they look at her aghast and Mercedes tells her that she's awful. Kurt notes that he and Mercedes are at the very top of the self-involvement scale, but they'd rather beat Vocal Adrenaline than get more solos, which means they need every good singer they can get. Rachel takes a breath, plasters on the fakest of fake smiles and tells them that they're right: "It's just so like me to be totally blinded by my concern for the two of you." Rachel tells them that she'll go see Sunshine and tell her that she's welcome to audition.
Cut to Rachel approaching Sunshine. She hands Sunshine a slip of paper and tells her it's the address for the auditions tomorrow. Oh, that wasn't fishy at all.
Teachers' lounge. Sue enters and sits at a table. She tells Will (sitting alone at the table behind her) that Beiste is on the way: "Operation Mean Girl is a go." I hope their new plan isn't to send Lindsay Lohan after Beiste. Because that's a little extreme. Then she tells the two other people sitting at her table that they have to leave. Beiste enters, and seeing every other table completely occupied (which was quite lucky for Sue's plan), asks Sue if the other chairs at her table are available. Sue tells her that they are occupied by the ghosts of hideous, lonely faculty members who met with an early demise because they tried to cross her. So Beiste approaches Will's table and asks him if she can sit there. Without nearly the style, panache, or personality of Sue, Will does the same thing. Beiste: "You think it's easy being a female football coach? You think I don't get this everywhere I go? Everyone told me Sue was the school bully and that you were really cool. I see they got that last part wrong, huh?" If they had said he was generally pleasant if kind of gormless they would have been right. But nobody who really knows Will Schuester would say he was "cool." Even this show has its limits when it comes to the suspension of disbelief.
