Puck, Kurt, Mercedes, Quinn, Brittany, Rachel, Finn, Puck, Puck, Puck. The cast was firing on all cylinders last night for a pretty full episode where almost everyone got a storyline (sorry Tina and Artie! hopefully next time!) Also, the writers must’ve been reading my mind, because they cleared up a very minor plot hole that over time had started to drive me crazy.
Favorite Moments and Quotes from “Laryngitis”:
*Best Song of the Night: Jesse’s Girl, The Lady is A Tramp, The Boy is Mine
…ok so I’m indecisive this week! Gimme a break, so was Glee. Seriously — who had the main storyline last night, exactly? Exactly.
Jesse’s Girl: SO great, and blatantly obvious that Finn chose this as his song. If people didn’t know he was going after Rachel, they sure do now. It was incredibly adorable that he went to the doctor with her (it’s the one supportive thing he has down to a tee in his relationships – doctor’s visits) and that he’d like her even if she does become a “vocal cripple” (hahaha) Did I miss the memo though? I could’ve sworn that last week Jesse St. James was pretty clearly breaking up with Rachel. Guess I was just reading too much into it. Luckily he is back from spring break (aka plotting with Vocal Adrenaline??) next week to help sort this mess out.
The Lady is A Tramp: Puck is the most consistently surprising character on this show. So many layers of jerkiness and awesomeness! I was surprised by how well he did the 50s/swing thing (which I love), and loved that he chose a Sammy Davis Jr song to woo Mercedes because “He’s my inspiration, he was a black Jew you know.”
The Boy Is Mine: OMG. Seriously OMG this song made me so nostalgic about middle school it wasn’t even funny. Brandy and Monica! They were SO cool. This was also just a great rendition — Santana and Mercedes killed it. Plus, every time they have a duel cell phone scene in the hallway I have intense Clueless flashbacks. I loved that there were more Mercedes/Quinn friendship scenes (more on this in a sec though) and that Quinn could see a Santana jealous rage coming Mercedes’ way and FAST. “I’m not worried about your heart- Oh I’m ok with [you dating Puck] but even Puck wont be able to call off Santana.”
* More notable Puck moments:
“I’m human garbage. I should just lie here till the truck comes and crushes me to death.” (after losing his mohawk mojo and getting thrown in the dumpster by the nerds)
“You just said like 10 offensive things.” Mercedes to Puck after his attempts to woo her fail. Bahaha.
I heard right, and Puck actually called himself a “sex shark” right?! Amazing.
I want to know more about his Super Mario Brother theories.
* Quinn. First off — when is she getting her own storyline again? I feel like it’s been ages, and I’d like at least a few scenes before she has the baby at the end of the season. Second — THANK YOU GLEE WRITERS for finally letting us know where Quinn has been living since she and Finn broke up. I was getting worried for her. Third — when did Quinn and Puck break up? I know he’s a horndog but I’m pretty sure they haven’t mentioned this before (same with Rachel and Jesse St. James’ relationship status). One step forward, one step back, writers.
*Kurt, oh Kurt. I feel bad for him and his struggles with a relationship with his dad now that Finn is around to do boy stuff with. BUT, that is no excuse to turn into a lumberjack Kurt! Everyone can see that’s not who you are. And then there’s Sue, throwing around advice like “So you like show tunes? It doesn’t mean you’re gay – it means you’re awful” and now Kurt is making out with Brittany?! …That was pretty hilarious. There’s nothing like a Kurt and his dad scene if you feel like crying though. Sheesh.
Awesome Kurt Soundbite “Because there is never an excuse for stirrup pants!” So true.
*Meanwhile, Finn was pulling out all the stops to try and win Rachel over while Jesse St. James was away and she was possibly at risk of never being able to sing again. Not only was it adorable, and things got really emotional when they went to visit his paralyzed friend Sean. Plus, this storyline led to the —
Best Line Of the Night: I’m like Tinkerbell, Finn! I need applause to live!
*Finally, The Best Brittany Quips:
Who is that guy? (about Puck-sans-Mohawk)
There are so many lyrics. (why she wasn’t singing in warm ups)
So you’re pretty much the only guy I haven’t made out with because I assumed you were capital G gay, but now that you’re not, a perfect record is important to me so let me know if you wanna tap this.
Kissing my armpits is a really big turn on for me.
Now I know what it’s like to date a baby!
Next week is going to be great, if for nothing else other than NPH! NPH! NPHHHHHHHHH! Can’t wait.
