Tina is wearing this bubble dress, complete with white bob wig, while Kurt's silver lamé number is based on this number from the "Bad Romance" video (except that Kurt's wig is a little more Falco doing "Amadeus" than it is Lady Gaga). Tina is in love with her bubble dress, "because even though I'm painfully shy and obsessed with death, I'm a really effervescent person." And then a couple of meathead jocks shove Kurt and Tina against the lockers and walk away. Except that Kurt is no longer taking crap like that. He calls after them, "Excuse me, were you dropped on your heads?" Oh, but it's really just weird chivalry -- he tells them, "Pick on me, it's fine, but don't throw around a girl." Kurt, honey, you don't deserve abuse from these guys any more than Tina does. Also, the meatheads are jocks we've seen before -- one slushying Finn and Quinn and the other harassing Finn in the locker room. The meatheads have some kind of weird, twisted logic in which Kurt and Tina dressing in an unusual fashion is somehow justification for hitting them. Kurt's not backing down -- he defends his right to express himself. But one of the meatheads tells him, "Well, the next time you want to express yourself and look like a circus freak, don't be shocked when my fist feels like expressing itself against your chin." Don't be sad, Brit-Brit, but I think we've now learned that you are not the dumbest kid in the school. But the threat of violence won't keep Kurt down -- as they walk away, he calls out to them, "Yeah, you don't want to be late for your appointment at Supercuts." One of the meatheads tells "Hummel" (and not "homo," which was what I thought I heard the first time I watched this) to watch his mouth, while the other one tells him, "You know what, Fancy? You don't need an appointment at Supercuts. They love walk-ins."
