Finn walks into a study hall and sits down across a table from Ryder (after tricking the teacher in charge into leaving by telling him he has a call in the teachers' lounge). He's there to recruit Ryder... for the show! Not for a completely inappropriate and no doubt illegal tryst. It's not quite lurking in the locker room, but this scene is nearly as creepy. Ryder is hard at work because his grades suck and he needs to get a B average or his parents will make him quit football. Finn tells what must be a total lie and claims that his grades sucked until he joined the glee club, and then he started getting better grades and graduated with a B+ average. (Just so we're clear, the obvious lie is not that his grades sucked, but that he graduated with a B+ average. He prayed to a grilled cheese sandwich and once copied off of Brittany's homework.) Since Will framed and blackmailed Finn to get him to join the glee club, I guess lying to recruit a hot young guy is just a McKinley tradition. Ryder doesn't seem convinced that singing is the answer to his woes. But he might just change his mind after he gets another C- on an assignment and/or test that a teacher hands back to him in his next class.
Auditorium stage. Artie and Finn enter the stage, which is currently the home to three different juke boxes. Artie tells him that a director's primary job is making choices, like choosing the right juke box to use for the show. Of course, the one Finn chooses (which is the same as the one from Happy Days) is the wrong one. But Artie is sure he'll get it eventually. And then Artie leaves and Ryder enters. He's decided he's willing to try anything to improve his grades, but he's dead set against singing. Finn tell him he used to feel the same way until he actually tried singing and then he found out it felt awesome, "like a really good poop." Don't ever change, Finn Hudson. Anyway, he thinks the same thing would work for Ryder, so he plugs in one of the machines and sets it to play Foreigner's ">, "Jukebox Hero." So that juke box just happened to have a single of the karaoke instrumental of this song? Finn starts the singing and then Ryder joins in. This is the gayest seduction I've seen outside of porn. Ryder imagines himself singing with a band before an adoring rock concert crowd and he really enjoys it. After they finish, he asks Finn if she should audition and Finn tell him he just did. Commercials.
