Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Terri Schuester (credit only)


Schuester volunteers to program Glee club songs which help with sex education, hearing many of his kids are dangerously ignorant. Free-spirited substitute sex-education teacher Holly Holliday therefore comes help him select and arrange appropriate repertoire. That proves tricky, as does the kids' own input, also on account of their personal (romantic) agendas. The Celibacy Club welcomes unlikely recruits. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?

Santana Lopez: Hi.
Brittany Pierce: Hey.
Santana Lopez: Can we talk?
Brittany Pierce: But we never do that.
Santana Lopez: Yea I know, but I wanted to thank you for performing that song with me in glee club. Because it's made me do a lot of thinking. And what I realized is why I'm such a bitch all the time. I'm a bitch because I'm angry. I'm angry because I have all of these feelings, feelings for you, that I'm afraid of dealing with because I'm afraid of dealing with the consequences. And Brittany, I can't go to an Indigo Girls concert. I just can't.

She's Back!
12 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If my blood ever gets analyzed in a hospital lab, they'll find undeniable Gwyneth Paltrow fanboy-ism rotted in my system. She won an Emmy for her three-episode run on Glee as substitute teacher, Holly Holiday. Prejudgment of her honor, that she was awarded because she's a huge movie star "downgrading" herself in a TV-turn, are sadly mistaken.

After watching all-three episodes The Substitute, Sexy, and A Night of Neglect, I was overcome with a state of "glee". It was a delightful two hours spent with a charismatic guest starring actress. Having a biased love for Paltrow, I expected to just feel the arms-length-fanboy-love for her work, I never expected to be knocked off me feet with her hilarious turn. I really loved her.

The character is a lot of fun, you can tell she's having fun bringing her to life, and we're having fun watching her; Holly Holiday is a jumbled ball of fun. Paltrow excels at portraying Holly's energy, spunk, quirky-charm, and hilarious persona, match that with her awesome pipes, it feels like she can't go wrong. Outshining show regular moguls, Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch, Paltrow defines a lovable character

Paltrow gets to flaunt her hidden singing abilities with the trendy, upbeat tunes as well as humanizing Holly's dramatic songs. Forget You was better than the actual recording. Do You Wanna Touch feels like it was written for Paltrow to sing and dance to. Landslide and Turning Tables are emotionally strong and are sang perfectly. Her Singin' in the Rain/Umbrella and Kiss songs are show-stopping too, showing off her dance talents.

Having great chemistry with Morrison and all the teenage cast, Paltrow proved to everyone she has the ability to deliver one of her most superb works in just a few scenes. She may even top Christina Applegate 's hysterical two appearances on Friends for my favorite comedy guest actress of all-time.
