Hudson basement. Mrs. Hudson is taking clothes out of the dryer. She hears Finn coming down the basement stairs, and starts to lecture him about not turning his t-shirts right-side-out. But she stops when she sees that Quinn is there. Finn tells her that Quinn's parents threw her out, and asks if she can stay for a few days. Mrs. H is a super-cool denim-vest-wearing mom, so she tells Quinn that she can stay with them as long as she wants.
Rachel is freshening her makeup in the girls' room when Suzy Pepper emerges from a stall and tells her, "Hey, Barbra Streisand. We need to have a little talk." Rachel accuses Pepper of stalking her and calls her the school crazy. Suzy Pepper: "I was crazy. Crazy in love." Rachel says that anything Suzy does will just make her and Mr. Schue's love grow stronger. Suzy Pepper: "Let me tell you a few things I learned from two years of intensive psychotherapy and an esophagus transplant. Lesson number one: You and Schue, it won't work." Rachel: "What do you mean?" S.P.: "We're not so different, you and me. We're both mildly attractive and extremely grating. Love is hard for us. We look for boys we know we can never have. Mr. Schue is a perfect target for our self-esteem issues. He can never reciprocate our feelings, which only reinforces the conviction that we're not worthy of being loved. Trust me, I'm a cautionary tale. You need to get some self-respect, Rachel. Get that mildly attractive groove back." I was wrong. Suzy Pepper is a lot more sane than Wendy Pepper will ever be.

Will enters the music room to find Rachel holding a pot of flowers. She tells him that the ballad she's selected has an important message she wants him to hear. He cuts her off and tells her that her behavior has been totally inappropriate. She tells him she already knows. The flowers are an apology, and the song she was going to sing was "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" (The flowers have a card in them -- "Sorry I've been acting crazy!") Rachel sits down and starts crying. Will tells her that he knows things aren't always easy for her, and that there are things about herself that she might like to change. "But you should know that there's some boy out there who's going to like you for everything you are. Including those parts of you that even you don't like. Those are gonna be the things he likes the most." Rachel is reassured by this. Mr. Schue decides they should bag rehearsal, since Rachel doesn't really need any help with her ballads.
