...Idiot Rachel and Frankenteen get summoned to The Maharishi's office for a chat. "Take a seat," The Maharishi instructs once they've arrived, "as I only have a few moments before I must chastise the cafeteria cooks for selling our frozen vegetables on the black market." "As co-captains of the nationally-victorious New Directions singing group," The Maharishi continues while Frankenteen and Idiot Rachel fidget and squirm on his sofa, "please accept these official William McKinley High School bumper stickers and miniature pompoms." Frankenteen is inordinately stoked by this generous gift, but wait! That's not all! "Although I don't condone youngsters getting married," The Maharishi notes, "and while I wish everyone waited until they were at least twenty-nine years old with solid employment and a full 401k retirement plan, here's a little something for your impending wedding celebration." The Maharishi draws a white envelope from his jacket pocket and hands it over to Idiot Rachel, who opens it to find a crisp new five-dollar bill inside. Heh. And before they go, The Maharishi has one small favor to ask of them: The high school is hosting some sort of super-secret special event the following evening. Could the nationally-victorious New Directions singing group grace said event with a tune or two? Frankenteen and Idiot Rachel of course immediately agree, but we have to wait until after this episode's final commercial break to find out what that super-secret special event involves, even though somebody said something about The Teacher Of The Year Award about a dozen scenes ago.
Teachers' Lounge After Dark. Will and the adorably-attired Emma make final sartorial preparations to attend that super-secret special event the following evening, and they make schmoopy noises at each other until Sue materializes in the lounge doorway, sporting a battered-looking top hat. "Award ceremony's about to start!" she calls out, so Will and Emma follow her out into the hallowed halls of dear McKinley High, where they politely listen as Sue regales them like so: "Lots of competition for Teacher Of The Year, but my source -- and when I say 'my source,' I mean Becky Jackson, hiding in a dummy filing cabinet that I put in Figgins's office -- my source said, 'Sue Sylvester, make room in your trophy case for yet another accolade.'" "Let us review why," Sue continues, as Will and Emma smile indulgently at her. "I led your tragic band of misfits to a victory at Nationals," Sue notes, "I defeated my Nubian nemesis, and of course The Cheerios welcomed me back with open arms, and I did all of this without losing a single day of work and in spite of the fact that I've been pregnant now for an indeterminate number of months!" Will spouts some platitudes in Sue's general direction by way of reply, and with that, Sue graciously gestures for the two of them to precede her into The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion.
