Cut to the principal's office. Figgins, Sue and Will all sit there silently. Sue offers to break the silence -- I'm surprised there was any silence to break, with her in the room. She thinks that was the most disturbing thing she's seen in 20 years of teaching, "including an elementary school production of Hair." Figgins noted that he received a number of angry e-mails from parents who thought their kids were going to be hearing an inspirational message from a Special Olympian. Which... makes me think some joke got left on the cutting room floor. Sue's first thought was that Will's students "should be put into foster care." But she's decided she'd be happy if Will resigned his post and the Glee Club was disbanded. Figgins thinks this is too hasty, since the kids were obviously talented. Since the problem is one of content, he took the liberty of asking his pastor for a list of family-friendly songs. He gives Will the list (it's printed on American flag stationery), and tells him those are the only songs they're allowed to sing. Will: "But, all these songs have either Jesus or balloons in the title." Figgins: "But there are also songs about the circus!" Figgins also thinks the gleeks need new costumes, so he's cutting the Cheerios dry-cleaning budget to pay for it. Sue: "This will not stand!" Figgins: "Oh, Sue, the dry cleaners here are just as good as the ones in Europe."
Sue and Will leave the principal's office to find Rachel waiting outside. Sue gives her the evil eye and storms off. Rachel apologizes to Will, but he's mad at her for lying to him and for making it so that no parents will let their kids join the Glee Club. He hands her the list of pre-approved songs. Rachel: "What's a luft-balloon?" Only the best kind of balloon -- the kind that exterminates all life in a nuclear firestorm. Commercials.
In the teacher's lounge, Emma eats her lunch, polishing each grape one at a time. Ken approaches her and slides two tickets to Tulipalooza across the table. He's inviting her to attend the tulip festival at the Columbus convention center. She thanks him for the thought, but claims she can't go due to her clearly made-up asthma. Ken asks her what she's doing, chasing after a married man. He tells her that he doesn't know much about relationships. "Most of mine are short and flame out once the sex goes." So, about ten seconds after the woman sees you naked? Notwithstanding his lack of relationship knowledge, he knows that Emma shouldn't want to be Will's rebound girl. Ken claims to be a good man who can provide for her, and tells her that she could do a lot worse than him and is unlikely to do much better in Lima. And with that, he hikes up his gym shorts and walks away.
