And then it's the game. Our guys are doing horribly. At one point, an opposing player calls out to Finn, "Hey, QB, your mama's so fat the back of her neck looks like a package of hot dogs. Get me some ketchup!" Before you know it, it's the third quarter and the visitors are up, 6-0. Kurt sees his father arrive in the bleachers and starts waving to him, very excited to be able to back up the earlier lie that he's the kicker. Kurt does these great chorus line high kicks as he's warming up. Our boys continue to suck, although they hold the other team to six points. Soon, it's the fourth quarter with about ten seconds remaining. Finn calls a play, and the team lines up. Things slow down, and as the clock counts down to one second left, Finn seems to have a little vision quest picturing the faces of everyone who wants him to win and be his best (including Kurt, Will, Quinn, and Coach Ken). He calls a time out, and pulls Puck over to him to tell him that they have to try the dance. Puck is convinced that they'll be jokes. Finn: "We're already jokes. I don't want to be a Lima loser the rest of my life." The trash-talking visitor calls out Puck: "Yo, left tackle -- your mama's so fat her cereal bowl comes with its own lifeguard. Like Baywatch!" Puck, evil as he can be, has the best response: "Hey, ankle-grabber, I had sex with your mother. No, seriously, I cleaned your pool, and then I had sex with her in your bed. Nice Star Wars sheets." And then he tells Finn that he thinks they should go for it. So Finn calls the team into a huddle and tells them the play will be "ring on it, on three." They line up, and before he calls "hike," he signals to the AV crew, who start playing "Single Ladies" over the PA. And the team starts to dance. There's a great shot of Quinn just laughing with some girlish joy. Honorable mention must go to players 34 and 22, who are clearly the divas of the group -- they work it hard. The other team is confused, and at one point the QB has to stop a visiting player from joining in on the dancing. And they finish the dance at the line and Finn calls "hike." And then he makes a long pass to Puck, who scores the TD for six points. Yay! Of course, Will and Emma grab each other in celebration before they realize how stupid they're being and each quickly look away. But now it's time for the attempt for the extra point. Ken approaches Kurt and tells him, "You're up kid. You make this, and we win. You make this, and you die a legend." But not anytime soon, I hope. Kurt: "Can I pee first?" Nope -- he has to go straight to the field. As he gets into position, his father mutters to himself, "Gah, he's so little." And it's full of incredible tenderness. Kurt signals for his music, and after the ball is hiked, he dances up to it and makes his kick for the game-winning point. The crowd goes wild, and the team carries Kurt off the field on their shoulders. Finn gets a congratulatory kiss from Quinn, and Puck looks sad. Commercials.
