Quotes

Sue Sylvester: [to Will and Bryan] I came over here to congratulate you on your new role. Local director Herb Duncan does the dry clean for the cheerios, and he let slip that you just landed the lead role in Les Mis!
[Will looks overwhelmed, and Bryan lets go of his smile]
Sue Sylvester: Congratulations. I'm ecstatic! And the good news just keep coming, because you got a part too, Bryan. The exciting role of Townsperson. You got a line too. Right back here in the second act, you get to say... 'Hooray!' Congratulations to both...

"Dream On" is another fine episode of "Glee"
14 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

For this "Glee" episode, the showcase is on Artie and Tina concerning Artie's impossible dreams, Jesse helping Rachel finding her mother, and Will encountering an old friend named Bryan Ryan (Neil Patrick Harris). I'll stop there and just say what another entertaining episode this was what with Kevin McHale giving his wheelchair-bound character a wonderful dream of being able to stand on two feet and doing "The Safety Dance" at a mall with others, seeing Matthew Morrison and Harris dueting on both "Piano Man" and "Dream On" and Lea Michele and guest star Idina Menzel on "I Dreamed a Dream". Tina and Artie make a fine romantic team here and seeing Rachel having mixed emotions about her new discovery is another fine dramatic moment for Ms. Michele. Kudos to director Joss Whedon which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who's seen his "Buffy" musical episode-"Once More with Feeling". Can't wait to see the next episode of "Glee"...
