A three-color print and musical sting brings us to the music room again, where Finn, in his civilian clothes, is manipulating tiny mannequins with New Directions members' faces glued to them, planning a dance routine. Blaine enters and Finn asks him how it's going with the plan to recover the trophy. Blaine casually lets it drop that he sang with the Warblers while he was at Dalton, and tells Finn that he felt so welcomed by them and is starting to wonder if he shouldn't be back there. Finn asks him if this is all about Kurt, and Blaine tells him that while he's at McKinley, he can't escape the memory of Kurt. He also acts like he's doing it for the New Directions' benefit, since Finn "needs a team that's gonna gel." Finn: "Yeah, we need a team with lots of gel. And you're, like, the biggest part of that." It is true that if Will and Blaine both left McKinley at the same time, the sale of men's hair product in Lima would plummet. Blaine doesn't care what effect his decision will have on the local beauty supply industry -- he thinks the Warblers are his destiny. Commercials.
Hallway. Marley approaches Kitty and tells her she can't sing a duet with her. Kitty: "Is it because my singing voice is crystal clear and you sort of sound like you have a snot bubble stuck in the back of your throat? I don't think that, that's just what everyone's saying." But Marley's real concern is the costume -- she doesn't want to wear a tight superhero outfit, because Kitty's secret machinations have convinced her that she's fat. Kitty asks her if she's still barfing up her food. She is. Kitty claims that they're a lot alike, which is why Kitty was so mean to her originally. Kitty is suspiciously supportive as she encourages Marley to try on the costume, promising to let her know if she looks bad. Their little chat ends with poor, naive, stupid Marley accepting a hug from Kitty.
Comic-cut over to the boys' locker room, where Sam is wearing a jock strap on his face and doing a very good Bane impression. Did I say Sam? I meant shirtless Sam. Thanks, Show! Ryder and Jake are both there, and Jake hands Ryder a note on which he's written his deepest secret. Ryder mocks him for taking the coward's way to admit his secret, and presses him to man up and tell him his secret face-to-face. So Jake tells him that as a half black, half white, half Jewish kid (who's not so hot at fractions), he never feels like he fits in anywhere. We cut sideways to white kids being racist toward him, and black kids being both racist and anti-Semitic. Jake asks Ryder what his kryptonite is, and Ryder tells him he doesn't want to share. Which naturally pisses Jake off, since he just opened up to his arch-nemesis. So Ryder tells him that he made Jake tell him what the note said because he couldn't read the note. GASP! (And you can't spell 'gasp' without 'PSA').
