Music room. Someone is on his hands and knees... scrubbing the floor? Oh, it's Puck. And he's buttering the floor in anticipation of the substitute, as he informs Finn. [Butter on the floor. Seriously? What about psychological abuse? What about dipping her pigtails in an inkwell? What year is this? - Gustave] Finn thinks they should focus on getting ready for Sectionals instead of pranking the sub, but the other kids disagree -- Artie tells him that everyone plans to swap names. Rachel walks in and slips on the butter. And then Holly Holliday walks in, strides up to the butter patch, and effortlessly glides across it. They're impressed. And then they laugh when Kurt walks in behind her and falls on his ass. Ms. Holliday introduces herself and asks for the kids' names. Puck introduces himself as Finn, Santana introduces herself as Rachel ("his loud, loud girlfriend"), and Brit-Brit introduces herself as Mike Chang. To which Mike gives a vigorous nod of the head. Holly knows they are lying, because she "recently watched a video of you guys performing at Regionals. Where you came in last." She thinks it might have had something to with the age of their music. Finn defends the Journey songs they sang as classics, and she agrees -- but she still thinks they "sounded like somebody else's favorite songs."
Holly tells the kids she wants to have fun with them: "What do you say we have class outside today?" Mercedes points out that it's raining. Holly: "Well then, let's take a field trip to Taco Bell. Should we toke up some medical grade marijuana? I wish." [Not that she actually whips out a joint or takes them to Taco Bell, but she's mentioned it, goddamn it and that makes her "the cool teacher!" - Gustave] She's won over all of the kids except for Rachel, who points out that they have to write a set list for Sectionals instead of getting high. Holly agrees, and then asks them what songs they want to do. Their stunned silence tells them nobody's ever asked them that before. Except for every week, when Will lets them pick out whatever songs they want to sing as part of his moronic "lessons." [Oh yeah, she's dealing with such a repressed community of teens here. Like the Von Trapps... but without the overbearing father and the discipline. - Gustave]
Puck flashes back to when he asked Will if they could perform that hot new song, "Forget You." And either Puck is feverish himself or he's lying to Ms. Holliday, because you know there's no way in hell Puck didn't use the song's original title, "Fuck You." Still in the flashback, Will says no, and then tells the kids, "Come on, guys, there's got to be a Journey song we haven't done yet."
