After undoing Sue's travel sabotage, the Glee Club arrives in New York. They still have to write original songs, but use inspiration as excuse to wander around first. Broadway is Kurt and Rachel's dream, so they wonder trough Manhattan. Will is found out tasting a solo part, but decides to stick to teaching. Although Fin dropped his girl-friend for her, Rachel decides to give her 'career' priority. That leads to him kissing her on stage, possibly the reason they don't make the final ten. Written by

The music playing over the first scene, in which Rachel stands in Times Square thrilled to be in New York City, is from George Gershwin's 1924 composition "Rhapsody in Blue." Although Gershwin wrote a great deal of classic Broadway music, this piece is more often performed by symphony orchestras; its association with New York City and Broadway instead comes from its use in the opening montage of New York scenes in Woody Allen's movie Manhattan
(1979). See more
