Storyline

Principal Figgins expects the glee club to help promote Alcohol Awareness week. Schuester eagerly accepts and chooses it as song selection theme, but Sue maximizes Will's embarrassment after discovering he let coach Beiste drag him along to a country bar with song, dance and alcohol. The kids can't resist the forbidden fruit that is dangling before them, only to be cured by their hangovers. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

When Sue makes her announcement over the P.A., Becky does an intro and outro on a small xylophone. She is stopped by Sue when she hits too many notes; this is reminiscent of the principal's secretary Blanche in Grease (1978), who does the xylophone intros and outros for P.A. announcements, and also gets carried away.

Goofs

When Becky does the outro on the xylophone and Sue stops her, the speaker is already switched off so the students wouldn't even hear it. See more »

the best glee episode ever
23 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

it's unbelievable how much i've gotten into glee, it's just that its a show that seems to go from strength to strength, and this episode proves it.

i thought that this would be the worst episode, but it turns to be the best one yet, funny, dramatic and just 100% on spot and would definitely make you stop drinking. the director both knew what he was doing when he directed the musical moments, and the slightly dramatic moments i.e the resemblance of the king's speech, by making it the queen's speech, (just genius). oh perhaps we should herald the amazing writer.

this was an episode that was just amazing... i don't think i can say it enough.

Chris colfer and lea Michelle as well as glee are going to win the Emmy this year.
