Goofs

Sue and Will's date was to be on Wednesday, and cheerleading Nationals is on Saturday. Kurt says that after the failed date, Sue was absent for a few days, but this timeline would only give her two days at most to be absent. See more »

Quotes

Will Schuester: [defending Puck and Finn] It's a harmless prank.
Sue Sylvester: That's what they said about a young man in Chicago in 1871, who thought he'd play a harmless prank on a dairy cow of one Mrs. O'Leary. He successfully ignited its flatulence and the city burned, William. That young terrorist went on to become the first gay president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln.

"Funk" seemed to be a summation of what this "Glee" episode was in (though it was still pretty enjoyable)
17 October 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Whoa, this episode of "Glee" seemed to be all over the place in trying to be a comedy, musical, and drama without really settling in any one of them consistently. I mean, what's with Will suddenly turning on Sue with his come-ons and then rejecting her which gets Sue to becoming severely depressed? Or Jesse doing the same to Rachel, over and over again? Or Quinn singing James Brown's "It's a Man's, Man's, Man's, World" with other supposedly pregnant teens? It seemed the producers were in a hurry to wrap several loose ends before the next episode's first season finale. Still, as always, there were several entertaining musical numbers to keep one watching. And there was another touching Mercedes/Quinn moment. And despite my hesitations about what I cited above, this was another highly enjoyable "Glee" ep. So with that said, I can hardly wait to see how it all ends up for the season...
