Quotes

Will Schuester: Hey, baby. Which one of these ties goes better with my shirt?
Terri Schuester: You're blocking the TV, Will.
Will Schuester: Oh, come on. I need your help. School pictures are coming up.
Terri Schuester: Oh. Well, in that case, um... wear the red one for the teacher photo and the green one for the glee club. It'll pop more when the cool kids deface it.
Will Schuester: Yeah. I, uh... I wanted to talk to you about that. So, Figgins stopped putting the Glee Club photo in the yearbook because it always gets vandalized, and I just feel so bad for the kids. I mean,...

Lift up your shirt...

Glee is reaching it's climax, and each new step is an exhilarating one. While this episode was severely shorter than the rest, it packed just as much of an emotional punch as any of its predecessors. With "Mattress", expect less music, more Rachel and Finn drama, and several scenes of sheer pain from Will. Although the absence substantial music is saddening and unusual, the focus of this episode was conflict, and boy does it deliver. This is, by far, the most emotionally involving episode of the season. I would not use the word "gleeful" to describe these past few episodes as the show has taken on a more dark tone with a few crumbs of happiness; mainly because of the music. It's sad to see this amazing show take a 4-month break, but I'm sure next weeks episode will tide us gleeks over until then. Prepare to have your mind blown wide open!
