Music room. Kurt, still in flannel, vest, and cap, and a kind of Midwestern redneck drawl, offers to sing first. He does a fine job with "Pink Houses," but it's just kind of scary ... wait, is he chewing? Oh, Kurt. Once again the reactions are great. Everyone is kind of nonplussed. Except Rachel, who's leaning over to her neighbors to ask what the fuck is going on. And Brit-Brit, who is smiling and nodding along, as always. Applause is weak, and Kurt notices that Will doesn't seem very happy. He asks if anything is wrong, and Will tells him that the song didn't seem to capture Kurt's true voice. Kurt refuses to be pigeonholed: "I'm not a box. There are more than four sides to me." Kurt, a box has six sides. If you had four sides, you would be a tetrahedron. And you really should stop borrowing Brittany's geometry notes. Will tells Kurt not to try to change who he is just because he thinks it will make his life easier. Everyone takes a break, and Brittany grabs Kurt on his way out the door. "So, you're pretty much the only guy in this school that I haven't made out with, because I thought you were capital-G gay, but now that you're not, having a perfect record would mean a lot to me. So, let me know if you want to tap this."
Finn is at his locker when he sees Rachel walking down the hallway. She's wearing her pajamas and a huge cardigan, her hair is a total mess, and she's eating a bowl of cereal. Again, where are her parents? If she's sick, why is she at school and not home resting? Did they go on spring break with Jesse? Because there's no way I believe two gay guys would let their daughter leave the house looking the way Rachel does. Rachel complains that it's been three days and her voice isn't better, which means she'll have to have surgery, which will ruin her life. Finn tells her stop feeling so sorry for herself. Rachel: "Why don't you get it. I am my voice. I am like Tinkerbell, Finn. I need applause to live." And then Finn tells her he has someone he wants her to meet. Commercials.
