Finn Hudson: It all started a week ago. I was super hungry, and my mom was gone, so I busted out the George Foreman. It wasn't making the cool grill marks it used to after I tried to use it to dry my shoes, but when it comes to grilled cheese, I'm not that fancy. And when I pulled the sandwich out, I saw the face of God... Literally. I had made a Grilled Cheesus.

"Grilled Cheesus" is a very dramatically compelling, but still occasionally humorous, episode of "Glee"
22 October 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is a very special episode of "Glee" (and I mean that in the most complimentary manner) that touches greatly at the heartstrings but also provides some gentle, if sharp, humor. First, Finn makes a grilled cheese sandwich which-when it burned at a certain place-made an image that looked just like the son of God. So he makes three wishes which all come true, perhaps too much so since his third one was to replace the new guy as the quarterback which he loved being previously. The other story concerns Kurt's dad who-after expressing disappointment at his son's wanting to skip a family dinner to see a singalong version of The Sound of Music-gets an attack and goes into a coma. That upsets Kurt greatly and it doesn't help when everyone tries to pray since Kurt doesn't believe in God...This particular episode hits all the right buttons without missing a beat and the songs are well chosen from Puck's version of "Only the Good Die Young" to Rachel's "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" to Finn's "Losing My Religion" to Mercedes' "Bridge Over Troubled Water" to Tina's "One of Us" and, especially, to Kurt's very touching version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" which he dedicates to his father. It's also nice to see Sue dial it down a bit in expressing her own doubts about her faith because of her older sister's condition. One of the most dramatically compelling eps of "Glee" yet. Kudos to everyone involved.
