Will asks what happened to Ken Tanaka. Instead of admitting that his dramatic possibilities had been exhausted once his romance with Emma was well and truly over, Figgins just tells Will that he had a nervous breakdown. Figgins tells them that if the football team starts drawing in alumni donations, he'll be able to restore money to Glee Club and the Cheerios. And since Ms. Beiste has just won five consecutive All-Missouri Conference titles, she stands a good chance of turning our Lima losers around. Sue gets into Beiste's face, starts by telling her that a female football coach, like a male nurse, is a sin against nature, and then tells her that nobody comes into Sue's house and steals from her. And that's when Beiste gets, um, beastly. She refers to herself in the third-person as "the Panther," and tells Sue to back on up out of her grill. Beiste: "You're all coffee and no omelet." Sue, with a twitch in one eye: "That doesn't make any sense." Will, in his offensively non-offensive way, asks the Panther to sympathize with them, since their budgets are being cut. He agrees with her that it's ridiculous that the Cheerios have a bigger budget than the football team they're supposed to be cheering for, but thinks she should show some pity for his tiny little band of misfit toys. But the Panther has no sympathy for losers, telling him that a losing club that wants more money "is a steer with six teats and no oink." And then she oinks in Sue's face. I think I just fell in love.
Glee Club. Will starts to read some of the negative comments from Jewfro's blog [dailyjewfro.com?], but the kids stop him. They don't care if everyone hates them, because they're now a family. But Will points out that since Matt Rutherford left, they need to recruit at least one new member to be able to compete. Wait, Matt who? Oh, he means Butt Munch! Come on, show, you can't just start making up new names for characters like that. But sure enough, now that I look I see that we're missing one black face. Will tells the kids, "We have to go from a small rebel force to a giant wall of sound." Rachel agrees, reminding them that she was the only one to see Vocal Adrenaline perform at Regionals (since everyone else went to the hospital for the fastest delivery in history), and that New Directions is going to need more voices to beat them. Finn stands up next to Rachel, telling everyone, "Yeah, I'm with Rachel on this one." Brittany: "Gross." Hee. Will tells the kids that they need to show the school how cool New Directions can be with a song that was actually written and/or recorded sometime in the last five years.
