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 Rachel and Kurt are waiting for Blaine so Rachel can kiss him, she says, "I may get a new boyfriend who can keep up with me vocally and in the future give me vaguely Eurasian-looking children". Darren Criss, who plays Blaine, is half-Filipino. See more »

Goofs

When Will drunk dials Sue, he says "hey sexy lady" after he says "I know it's late and I know you're taken, I've had a couple drinks". When Sue is playing the voice message over the PA system, however, it starts with the "hey sexy lady" but then cuts straight to "there is something I really, really wanna say to you". It skips much of what he says the first time he drunk dials. See more »

Quotes

Blaine Anderson: [after being kissed by Rachel] Huh... Yep. I'm gay. 100 % gay. Thank you so much for clearing that up for me, Rachel!

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.
