In any event, Finn attempts to reassure her that everything will work out somehow, but Quinn's already gathered up her belongings to flounce out to the hallway. The camera would follow her all the way, I'm sure, were it not for the fact that it now gets all tangled up in J-Fro's crowning glory, so we must wave bye-bye to the shrill shrew of an ex-cheerleader and linger with J-Fro and Sue Sylvester as the intrepid McKinley High blogger shoves his wee tiny tape recorder into Sue's face with the following: "My blog has lit up with comments suggesting you don't have a shot at Nationals since you lost Quinn Fabray." "The Cheerios are stronger than ever," Sue insists immediately before predicting that this joint-crushing jump rope routine will trounce anything the competition has to offer. The run-through happens to end at this very moment, and Sue blares, "MEDIOCRE. HIT THE SHOWERS!" through a bullhorn she casually passes to her squad's bullhorn wrangler -- hee! -- before exiting the gymnasium with J-Fro in tow, as the latter has a few more questions. You see, he's heard through the grapevine that Quinn wanted to remain on The Cheerios, but that Sue Sylvester forced her to resign. "Well, Jacob," Sue begins by way of explanation, "this is Ohio, and in order to win, my Cheerios need to appeal to that panel of judges. So, if I have a pregnant girl doing a handspring into a double layout, the judges aren't going to be admiring her impeccable form, they're going to be wondering if the centrifugal force is going to make the baby's head start crowning." Point to Sue Sylvester. She then announces their entire conversation has been off the record, and she confiscates J-Fro's wee tiny tape recorder. Heh.
As Sue strides off camera, leaving J-Fro and his mangled ego lying prostrate in her magnificent wake, Will enters onto the scene, already in mid-argument with Principal Figgins. Seems Will wants the school to pay for the "handicapable" bus Glee Club needs to chauffeur Artie and his wheelchair to Sectionals, but as said bus rents at a rate of $600 a week, and as Principal Figgins has already had to "stop providing the baseball team with protective cups" due to budgetary constraints, Artie will have to find his own way to the competition. When Will protests that The Cheerios get flown for free to their various meets around the country, Figgins reminds him that "Sue Sylvester has boosters that write fat checks." Therefore, none of her travel expenses come out of the general school fund. Will launches himself into this little Remember The Good Ol' Days speech about how the bus ride to the event was one of the most worthwhile parts of his McKinley High Glee Club experience, what with the camaraderie and the supporting each other and other such bullshit, and were Orangina around at this point, I'm sure she'd add that the threeways in the back seat weren't too shabby a bonus, either, but Principal Figgins will not be swayed by a stream of starry-eyed, nostalgic drivel, and ends the interview thusly: "If you want that bus, you're gonna have to find a way to pay for it yourself!" And with three of this plot-tastically packed episode's six or so primary conundrums so efficiently established, we head into the black-and-white title card.
