Trivia

Sue says to Principal Figgins and Will, "and as soon as I figure out the difference between slander and libel, I'm filing a lawsuit". This is an obvious reference to a "Goof" posted under Glee: Sectionals (2009). See more »

Quotes

Artie Abrams: Um, excuse me. Why is she here?
Brittany Pierce: I've been here since first period. I had a cold, and I took all my antibiotics at the same time, and now I can't remember how to leave. But I also don't know why I've only made fourth on the Glist. I've made out with, like, everyone in this school. Girls, boys, Mr. Kidney the janitor.

Let's get physical
4 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The worst episode yet with poor writing and no apparent direction. Isn't this supposed to be a comedy with funny lines? I didn't laugh once in the first half hour. No director in the credits is no surprise.

What's amazing to me is that Sue can tell Will last week that she is blackmailing the principal, but this week, Will sits still for an ultimatum from that same principal about a Glee list probably created by Sue which puts the Glee Club at risk?!? What the heck?

Olivia Newton-John is willing to cameo on this episode. I wonder if she saw the script. Her lines are not funny at all, but Sue's responses to her provided the only smiles I got from this.

I did enjoy the music this week. Performances by some of the lesser characters like Puck were well done. The remade video of "Let's get physical" with Sue and Olivia with auto-tune in over-drive was the weakest, but because I've always been a big fan of Olivia, I gave this turkey a 2 instead of the 1 it deserves.
