Oh, wait. I take that back, because we're at long last getting a production number, and as it promises to prominently feature Carol Burnett, I'm thinking it's going to kick more nerdy Glee Club ass than Karofsky did in the locker room. We've cut over to the brand-new auditorium set to find Sue cooling her heels onstage with Tinkles and about a dozen kids from McKinley's orchestra. Carol Burnett eventually enters, and she introduces what follows to Sue like so: "I know you always resented my leaving, but I don't think you ever truly appreciated the sacrifices I made to be a famous Nazi hunter! I don't think you ever thought about how hard it was on me, so this is the song I'm going to sing at your wedding." With that, she passes a sheaf of sheet music over to Sue, who glances at the title and rolls her eyes as her mother summons Tinkles to the piano. "I know you know it," Carol Burnett trills, taking her place center stage, "and it's one of my favorites -- hit it!" With that, she launches herself into "Ohio" from Wonderful Town. After the first verse, Sue joins in on harmony, and I couldn't be more delighted that this show resurrected this particular little-known tune, though upon rewatch, the changes they made to the patter at the song's center to give it Glee-specific relevance do seem a little forced. But, you know, let's face it: The changes here are miles above the crap they shoehorned into "Rose's Turn" for Kurt, so I should probably knock it off with the criticism.
And when it's over, after Sue and Doris have shared a lovely harmonized moment of seeming unity in wishing that Doris stay home for a change, Doris stomps all over the mood by sighing, "Well, that wasn't as good as I thought it would be." Heh. She checks her watch, realizes she's running late for a fitting, makes note of the fact that she's wearing white to her daughter's wedding, and skedaddles, singing the last line of the song as she goes. Tinkles shoots Sue A Look.
