Will drives the car. Rachel asks why she has to ride in the back seat. Will claims it's the law that children have to ride in the back. When Rachel points out that the law refers to children under seven, Will claims to just be concerned for her safety. That fills her with visions of him protecting her from harm, so he has to clarify that actually he's not concerned for her safety. Rachel thinks they should take advantage of this time to practice their ballad. And, wouldn't you know, she's got a CD with her of the music she wants to sing. She pops it into the stereo and starts singing "Crush." Will turns it off after a few bars, telling her that he can't listen with the horrible acoustics in the car. He tries to change the subject, asking her how things are going with Puck. She tells him she dumped Puck because he was too immature, just like all high school boys. She has her eyes on someone who can keep up with her intellectually and creatively. Somehow, that's supposed to be the kind of big revelation that merits a commercial break.
Rachel walks down the hallway with a big smile on her face -- a smile that disappears when she finds her path blocked by Suzy Pepper, who warns her, "Stay away from him! You're gonna get hurt... bad!" Rachel denies being frightened of Suzy, and they stalk off in opposite directions. The camera pans over to Mercedes, who's walking down the hallway having a phone conversation with Tina. The subject of the conversation seems to be their respective locations in the school. Also, we learn that Mercedes's biology class hamster is pregnant. She enters the music room, where Puck has been waiting for her so they can practice their ballad. Mercedes hangs up and tells Puck that everyone else has decided that instead of singing ballads to each other, they're all going to get together to sing a ballad to Finn and Quinn to let them know how much they are loved. Puck is not happy with that idea: "It's not fair! Finn gets everything, he gets the sympathy, he gets the girl!" And that's when Puck tells Mercedes that he's the father. Mercedes takes a moment to think and then tells Puck that he'd better just get over it and move on. I don't pretend to understand the logic of teenage girls, but I think her point is that he messed up Quinn's life enough by getting her pregnant, so now he's got to just sit back and let her make whatever decisions she needs to do deal with that, including the decision to make the world think that Finn is the father. See, I told you it didn't make sense.
