Episode Six: PopularEdit

“Ugh, it so depressing” Vanessa sighed exasperated as she walked down the halls with the Femme Fatales

“What is?” Louise raised her eyebrow

“How disgustingly uncool half the student body is…” Vanessa sighed

“I know right!” Sarah squealed

“Hush you.” Vanessa snarled “I still haven’t forgiven you for the Amber incident”

“And I’m still not apologising.” Sarah rolled her eyes

“Ugh! Stop trying so hard to be me Sarah!” Vanessa screamed

“HA! You wish you were half as popular as I am” Sarah laughed

“Heeeerrreee we go” Catalina sighed

“Hush up Rug Muncher” Vanessa snarled “You’re jealous too!”

“No I’m not, people don’t actually like you… Or fear you” Catalina smirked until Vanessa slapped her

“UGH! Why are you all so obsessed with me?” Vanessa screamed

“Looks like she’s finally snapped” Derek whispered to Valerie

“Let’s go check it out” Valerie said leading the way

“Face it Vanessa, you’re not Queen Bee material” Sarah shrugged

“What and you are?” Vanessa laughed “Who’s that girl, who’s trying desperately to be me? Oh yeah! YOU!”

“What the hell is going on here?” Valerie asked approaching the group

“Umm, does this include your busted ass?” Vanessa snarled “No. So get lost Puke Breath”

“Excuse you” Valerie said stunned “This includes me seen as I am the REAL queen bee here”

“Ha dream on honey” Catalina smirked “Since you joined Loser Squad, you and Franken-teen here are King and Queen of Lame” Derek went into hysterics

“Really? You really think so? I have news for you sweetie, I’m still the most feared and loved guy at this school, so take a long walk of a high cliff”

“You know what, let’s settle this the old fashioned way” Valerie snarled “A sing off”

“Pop, pop! Pop, pop!” Sarah sang glaring at the other four

“I hate to say it but they play this damn song in every club” Vanessa sang “But it's me so I'll show love. But it's me so show me love”

“When I walk into the room people stop and stare. It's like nobody else is there” Derek sang “You know it's me not you. Who said anything about you?”

“Boys and girls pretend to know me, they try so hard” Catalina, Derek, Sarah, Valerie and Vanessa all sang “And I get what I want, my name is my credit card. Don't try to hate me because I am so popular. Pop, pop, popular! Pop, pop, popular!”

“Most guys I dated got intimidated. So now I date up. If you know what it means so they shut up. If you know what it means so just shut up” Catalina sang strutting down the halls, grabbing Riley pushing her against a locker and kissing her

“'Cause I don't wanna give half away. On the date we don't make up. If you know what I mean when we wake up” Valerie sang “If you know what I mean when we break up”

“Boys and girls pretend to know me, they try so hard” Catalina, Derek, Sarah, Valerie and Vanessa all sang “And I get what I want, my name is my credit card. Don't try to hate me because I am so popular. Pop, pop, popular!”

“You always wanna be around me. So you know what it's like” Sarah sang as she danced through the hallways “When the world is at your feet. And you're VIP tonight”

“You've either you got it or you don't” Vanessa sang as he pushed Sarah over “And I'm sorry you won't. Get there by using me. Just go and do your own thing”

“Pop, pop, pop! Mm pop. Pop, pop, pop! Mm pop.” Valerie sang

“Boys and girls pretend to know me, they try so hard. And I get what I want, my name is my credit card” The group all sang as they strutted down the halls and out into the courtyard “Don't try to hate me because I am so popular. Pop, pop, popular! Boys and girls pretend to know me, they try so hard. And I get what I want, my name is my credit card. Don't try to hate me because I am so popular. Pop, pop, popular! Pop, pop, popular! Pop, pop, popular! Pop, pop, popular!”

“Pop, pop, popular!” Catalina and Derek sang

“Okay ladies and gentlemen, we have an announcement” Derek smiled as he and Valerie walked into glee club

“YOU’RE DATING HER NOW!” Angie screamed tears rushing down her face

“Wow, she’s melodramatic…” Talia rolled her eyes

“No, we’re not dating you bobblehead” Valerie rolled her eyes “It’s come to our attention how… Um…”

“Loserific” Derek smiled

“No… Well… Yeah… But there are nicer ways to say that this team is… Well… Uncool”

“Okay we get it we’re losers” Brock snarled

“No, YOU are losers” Kendra rolled her eyes “Myself, Libretta, Rohan, Derek, Jasmine and Valerie are cool, hell even JASON’S cool compared to some of you!”

“Thanks…?” Jason looked confused

“So we are gonna be giving cool lessons” Valerie smiled

“You’re going to be doing what Miss Kostas?” Angel asked fuming as she and Sugar entered the auditorium

“Umm… Giving cool lessons…” Valerie said shame faced

“No you’re not. Not on my watch!” Sugar snapped “How dare you Miss Kostas? New Directions is about acceptance and being who you are, not labels”

“Well, I hate to agree with the pampered princess over here.” Libretta sighed “She’s completely right. The group of us have been labelled losers. And a lot of us are labelled worse”

“Like what?” Angel raised an eyebrow

“Fat” Angie sighed

“Crazy” Alyssa looked down ashamed

“Tranny” Dmitri rolled his eyes

“Fag” Drew sighed

“Rug Muncher” Riley said

“Self Centred” Valerie looked down

“But the school has a no toler-” Sugar started

“No” Libretta said quickly “You SAY we have a no tolerance bullying policy. But look at what happened with Dmitri, Vanessa Anderson mercilessly teased him and she was never even punished for it. It’s hard out here for a teen”

_____________________________________________________________________________________

“I just can’t believe it’s THAT bad” Sugar sighed stirring her coffee

“Believe it honey” Kurt sighed “Even though Mr Schue put the policy in place many teachers just ignore the bullying rather than stop it”

“And then there’s teachers who encourage it” JP rolled his eyes

“Not naming names of course” Angel rolled her eyes before fake coughing “Sue”

“Well, that’s all about to change” A voice said from behind them, the four whirled around to see none other than “Mini Sue” Quinn Fabray

“Quinn!” Sugar exclaimed “It’s lovely to see you”

“You as well Sugar” Quinn smiled hugging Sugar

“Hold up Fabray, what do you think you’re doing? This is the teacher’s lounge only teachers are allowed in here” Kurt narrowed his gaze at her

“Take it up with Mr Schue, he’s the one who hired me. You’re looking at McKinley’s new drama teacher” Quinn grinned

“That’s great Quinn!” Angel smiled

“Oh my gosh! Unique Adams!” Quinn looked at the young woman in shock “I barely recognised you”

“Haha, thank you” Angel smiled “Also my name’s Angel now, I got the operation” 

“Congratulations” Quinn nodded

“Anyway” Kurt rolled his eyes “It’s not “great” my husband was going for that job” 

“Oh so you FINALLY got hitched to Blaine Chunderson” Quinn giggled

“OH SWEET GOD NO!” Kurt laughed “Blaine was a pathetic child, he cheated on me while I was just settling into living in New York, and THEN had the audacity to blame me for it happening”

“Ouch” Quinn sighed

“Yeah whatever if it weren’t for him doing that I probably would’ve ended up with his selfish ass. But luckily I found Adam whilst in New York and now we’re hitched”

“Hold on” JP said “You said that’s all about to change when Angel said Sue… What do you mean by that?”

“Oh, Sue’s retiring and I’m taking over as cheer coach” Quinn smiled

“Really! That’s great!” Sugar smiled

“That means The Femme Fatales will be disbanding” Angel grinned

“Best news ever!” Sugar squealed

“Not exactly” Quinn smiled “I’m coaching them too”

“That means you’ll be coaching three clubs… The Femmes, The Cheerios and the drama club” Angel raised an eyebrow

“Nope” Quinn grinned “I have a helper” She turned round to face the door and yelled “ADAM!” In waltzed Adam Crawford

“Honey!” Kurt grinned throwing his arms around Adam’s neck “Wait, helper? You’re her assistant?” Kurt raised an eyebrow

“Not exactly” Adam smiled “I’m a drama teacher too, William found enough money in the drama department’s budget to have two teachers, he decided on one male and one female and in turn picked myself and Miss Fabray, and because she’s going to be incredibly busy with The Cheerios and the glee club, I’m running the drama club and she’s gonna help from time to time, especially with the play we’re gonna put on soon”

“Excuse me? Play? What you talking bout Adam?” Kurt asked furiously

“Well we decided that to announce our arrival we’re gonna do a school play, we’re still deciding on which one, I want to do August: Osage County” Quinn smiled

“And I want to do The Crucible” Adam grinned

“Now you know I’d support anything you do honey” Kurt said

“Aw, thanks babe” Adam grinned

“But nobody wants to see a play about Salem and everyone’s already seen Meryl do Osage so… No”

“Wait, I know, what’s going on.” Quinn said slyly “You’re worried we’re gonna steal actors from your Hairspray and we’ll be better”

“No. I’m offended you’d choose to do a play when I’m already organising the school musical”

“Speaking of which” Sugar said trying to change the subject desperately “When is the cast list gonna be up? Some of the kids are warring already”

“It should be up sometime this week” Kurt smiled

“Awesome.” Sugar smiled

“Now back t-” Quinn started before the bell cut her off

“Saved by the bell” Angel whispered to Sugar and JP who giggled as the three of them left

_____________________________________________________________________________________

“Excuse me”

“Can I help you?” Alyssa asked rising her head from her math work and seeing Vanessa Anderson standing there

“No, but I think I can help you” Vanessa smiled taking a seat “I know that people say you’re weird and ugly but you wanna know what I can see?”

“Sure…” Alyssa rolled her eyes

“Behind the multicoloured hair, sweatpants and glasses is a beautiful, amazing young lady” Vanessa grinned “And I want to give you a makeover to show you how sexy and gorgeous you can be”

“Why do I feel that I’ll regret this?” Alyssa sighed as she put her books in her bag

“So Lyssa, now that we're friends, I've decided to make you my new project!” Vanessa squealed as she grabbed Alyssa’s hand and led her into the halls

“You really don't have to do that…” Alyssa sighed

“I know, that's what makes me so nice!” Vanessa giggled “Whenever I see someone less fortunate than I. And let's face it, who isn't less fortunate than I?  My tender heart tends to start to bleed. And when someone needs a makeover. I simply have to take over! I know, I know exactly what they need!” She sang smiling at Alyssa as she took her into the backstage part of the auditorium “And even in your case. Though it's the toughest case I've yet to face. Don't worry, I'm determined to succeed! Follow my lead. And yes indeed, you will be… Popular!  You're gonna be popular! I'll teach you the proper poise. When you talk to boys. Little ways to flirt and flounce. Ooh! I'll show you what shoes to wear! How to fix your hair! Everything that really counts to be… Popular! I'll help you be popular! You'll hang with the right cohorts. You'll be good at sports. Know the slang you've got to know.  So let's start. 'Cause you've got an awfully long way to go!” Vanessa sang as she sat Alyssa down and started cutting and curling her hair “Don't be offended by my frank analysis. Think of it as personality dialysis. Now that I've chosen to become a pal, a sister and advisor. There's nobody wiser! Not when it comes to… Popular! I know about popular. And with an assist from me. To be who you'll be. Instead of dreary who you were… Well, are. There's nothing that can stop you. From becoming popu-ler… lar…” Vanessa giggled as she started to do Alyssa’s makeup “La la, la la! We're gonna make you pop-u-lar! When I see depressing creatures. With unprepossessing features. I remind them on their own behalf. To - think – of. Celebrated heads of state.” Alyssa smiled as she looked at her reflection, Vanessa then proceeded to pull a rack of dresses from the costume room “Or specially great communicators! Did they have brains or knowledge? Don't make me laugh! They were popular! Please! It's all about popular.” She sang as she rifled through the dresses and found a black vintage 50’s dress and gave it to Alyssa to change into “It's not about aptitude. It's the way you're viewed. So it's very shrewd to be. Very very popular like ME!” Vanessa finished singing and Alyssa stepped out of the dressing room “Why, Miss Alyssa, look at you. You’re beautiful!”

“I, I have to go…” Alyssa said running off

“You're welcome…” Vanessa called after her “And though you protest. Your disinterest. I know clandestinely. You're gonna grin and bear it! Your new found popularity! Aah! La la, la la! You'll be popular! Just not quite as popular as ME!” Vanessa finished “And it’s gonna destroy those Directions once and for all” Vanessa began to cackle

“Okay ladies and gentlemen” Sugar smiled as the after school glee club meeting began “Time to get down to business, we want you to think of something you’re labelled or something that people use against you”

“Then we are gonna use this printing machine and make shirts with your label on them” Angel grinned

“And that’s gonna make us feel better?” Derek raised an eyebrow

“That’s not the full plan” Sugar smiled “You will perform TLC’s hit song Unpretty with the shirts with your label”

“Then at the end of the week you’ll perform another song with different shirts” Angel said “Power word shirts”

““Power word shirts”?” Angie repeated sceptically

“Yeah, we got the idea from an America’s Next Top Model episode” Sugar grinned

“Why doesn’t THAT surprise me?” Brock sighed

“So the idea of the power word is to take your label and make it into something positive” Angel smiled “Like Drew, he said his label was “fag” so his power word could be something like “Free” or “Brave””

“So like I’m called fat my word could be “Voluptuous”?” Angie asked

“Indeed it could” Angel grinned

“This actually sounds like an okay plan” Valerie smiled

“Okay let’s get these shirts started” Sugar smiled

“Sorry I’m late” Alyssa sighed as she scurried in

“Wow who’s the hottie?” Brock said in shock

“It’s me Alyssa” She rolled her eyes

“Oh, I didn’t recognise you without the glasses” Brock said “You look awesome”

“What’s with the new look Alyssa?” Sugar raised an eyebrow 

“Vanessa did this”

“Vanessa Anderson” Angel raised her eyebrow

“Yeah… She decided that she’d help me be more… Popular”

“Well I think you look amazing” Valerie grinned

“But you don’t look like yourself” Sugar sighed

“Maybe this is me. The me I’ve hidden for far too long” Alyssa snapped before storming out

“And so the war begins” Drew sighed under his breath

“Well, if it isn’t Miss Alyssa Roberts” Caleb smirked as he sat down next to her in the courtyard “Aren’t you looking mighty fine”

“Save it Creeper” Alyssa snarled

“Well that’s rude…”

“So is hitting on everything female with a pulse”

“So I guess you’re new to this whole popular thing”

“What are you on about?” Alyssa raised her eyebrow

“I overheard Vanessa performing Wicked and saw her giving you the makeover of your life”

“Oh…”

“Look, this is the best thing for you. People are gonna look at you and instead of seeing the Rainbow Haired Glasses Wearing Math Freak, they’re gonna see a beautiful young woman”

“Why are you telling me this?”

“Because Vanessa made you over to split the New Directions down the middle. The popular kids versus the not so popular, destroying you from the inside”

“And so you’re doing this because…?”

“I’d rather destroy the New Directions fairly rather than cheating.”

“Whatever” Alyssa rolled her eyes

“You should really get back and make your shirt” Caleb grinned

“How’d you know about the shirts?” Alyssa raised her eyebrow

“That’s not important” Caleb smiled raising “Can I suggest your “Power Word” Alyssa?”

“Sure” Alyssa shrugged

“Individual” Caleb smiled before walking away from her

‘Individual? Ha!’ Alyssa narrated ‘I’m about as individual as this dress… Wait… That’s right! I AM as individual as this dress, vintage, one of a kind! UGH! I could just kiss that creep… But I think I best head back to glee club’

_____________________________________________________________________________________

“Okay everyone are you ready?” Sugar smiled

“Wait!” A voice came

“Welcome back Miss Roberts” Angel smiled

“Can I just quickly make me shirt and join in?” Alyssa asked

“Of course!” Sugar grinned

“There’s always room for you here” Angel smiled, Alyssa grinned as she grabbed one of the shirts and printed “Rainbow Freak” onto it, she pulled it on and ran backstage to join the others.

“Okay then” Sugar smiled let’s start, the music started up and Aspen and Valerie walked out wearing their shirts Aspen’s printed with the word “Morbid” and Valerie’s printed with “Self-Obsessed”

“I wish could tie you up in my shoes. Make you feel unpretty too” Valerie sang

“I was told I was beautiful. But what does that mean to you” Aspen sang as Libretta and Kendra walked out with their shirts “Snob” and “Rich Bitch” respectively

“Look into the mirror who's inside there. The one with the long hair” Libretta sang

“Same old me again today. Yeah” Kendra sang as Riley and Talia walked out with their shirts “Queer” and “Emo”

“My outsides look cool. My insides are blue” Riley sang

“Everytime I think I'm through. It's because of you” Talia sang as Daniel and Alyssa walked out in their shirts, his stating “Anger Issues”

“I've tried different ways. But it's all the same” Daniel sang

“At the end of the day. I have myself to blame. I'm just trippin'” Alyssa sang as the other New Directions joined the group

“You can buy your hair if it won't grow. You can fix your nose if he says so. You can buy all the make up. That M.A.C. can make.” The New Directions sang “But if you can't look inside you. Find out who am I too. Be in the position to make me feel. So damn unpretty. Yeah, I'll make you feel unpretty too”

“Never insecure until I met you. Now I'm bein' stupid” Dmitri sang his shirt stating “Lady Boy”

“I used to be so cute to me. Just a little bit skinny” Angie sang wearing her shirt that said “Fat”

“Why do I look to all these things, to keep you happy?” Jason sang with his shirt stating “Foreigner”

“Maybe get rid of you. And then I'll get back to me hey” Melissa sang with her “Wannabe” shirt

“My outsides look cool. My insides are blue” McKenzie sang wearing her “Hummel’s Kid” shirt

“Everytime I think I'm through. It's because of you” Derek sang wearing a shirt saying “Dumb Jock”

“I've tried different ways. But it's all the same” Brock sang wearing a “Daddy Issues” shirt

“At the end of the day. I have myself to blame. Keep on trippin'” Jasmine sang wearing a shirt saying “The Old One”

“You can buy your hair if it won't grow. You can fix your nose if he says so. You can buy all the make up. That M.A.C. can make. But if you can't look inside you. Find out who am I too” The group all sang “Be in the position to make me feel. So damn unpretty. You can buy your hair if it won't grow. You can fix your nose if he says so. You can buy all the make up. That M.A.C. can make. But if you can't look inside you. Find out who am I too. Be in the position to make me feel. So damn unpretty. I'll make you feel unpretty too. I'll make you feel unpretty”

“Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh. Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh” Jake and Jessica sang wearing “Nerd” and “Background Singer” shirts

“Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh. Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh” Drew and Rohan sang wearing shirts stating “The Other Kaede” and “Loud Mouth”

“You can buy your hair if it won't grow. You can fix your nose if he says so. You can buy all the make up. That M.A.C. can make” The New Directions sang “But if you can't look inside you. Find out who am I too. Be in the position to make me feel. So damn unpretty. You can buy your hair if it won't grow. You can buy all the make up. That M.A.C. can make. But if you can't look inside you. Be in the position to make me feel. So damn unpretty” The group finished

“That was wonderful guys” Sugar smiled wiping a tear from her eye

“I agree I love how vulnerable you’re being with each other right now” Angel smiled “I’m so proud of all of you!”

_____________________________________________________________________________________

“I think this whole “Love yourself for who you are” assignment is bogus” Kendra sighed as she, Jessica, Libretta, Jasmine and Valerie sat in the courtyard waiting for the other girls to join them for a shopping trip for Sectional dresses

“You would Rich Bitch” Libretta smirked

“Look all I’m saying is we’re the hottest top bitches in the New Directions we can’t help but love ourselves cause the crowds already love us” Kendra smirked as she rose to her feet

“Why do I feel she’s got a song coming on?” Jasmine sighed

“Because she does” Valerie sighed pointing at Kendra who was fiddling round with her speaker purse

“La, la. La, la, la. La, la. La, la, la. La, la. La, la, la. La, la. Hey hey hey Where my ladies at? Where my ladies at?” Kendra sang “Where my, where my, where my ladies at?”

“Hands up now. Push it up now” Kendra and Libretta sang

“Where my ladies at? Where my ladies at?” Jasmine, Jessica, Kendra, Libretta and Valerie sang “Where my, where my, where my ladies at? Hands up now. Push it up now. I know what boys like. I know what guys want. I know what boys like. I got what boys like. I know what boys like. I know what guys want. I know what boys like. But I know what I want”

“I know what boys like” Kendra sang as she started to strut around the courtyard “They like to mess around. I laugh and tease them. They wanna know what I'm about. I know what boys like. I tell them so what?”

“So what?” Libretta said

“It doesn't matter. You're gonna have to be smart”

“Oh, oh, oh. It ain't that hard to see. I know you're feelin' me. Baby, I really want cha” Jasmine sang “Oh, oh, oh. Don't take it personal. Been down that road before. Had to switch it up cause”

“I know what boys like” The five sang “I know what guys want”

“Boys like”

“I know what guys want. I know what boys like. But I know what I want”

“La la la la. What they li-like, li-like, li-like”

“I know what boys like. Cute smiles and heels high” Valerie sang as she danced over to Jason “Attempt the "hello". While I say "bye bye". I know they want me. They try to fake it. But they just end up. Intimidated”

“Oh, oh, oh. It ain't that hard to see” Jessica sang “I know you're feelin' me. I really want cha Oh, oh, oh”

“Oh yeah” Libretta sang

“Unconditionally,”

“Yeah I might let you”

“If you're on my level”

“I might let you”

“And baby, if I think you're special”

“I might let you”

“Hey hey hey!” The four sang “Where my ladies at? Where my ladies at? Where my, where my, where my ladies at? Say, that's what they want want. That's what they want want. Where my ladies at? Where my ladies at? Where my, where my, where my ladies at? Say, that's what they want want. That's what they want want”

“Now everytime I come up in the spot. I'm with my ladies” Libretta sang

“Yeah” The other four sang

“A peace out to the fellas and reverse it for the haters. Slickety slick, bam boom pow. Look at how hot my ladies are now. We ain't messing with you fools. We ain't playin' with you clowns”

“Now this blonde babe's the one to thank. Help us rise to the top of the social ranks” Jessica sang putting her arm around Sarah’s shoulder

“The lost little Femme changed us for the better. Now she's part of the Direction family forever.” Valerie sang “So, back, back, back it on up. Back it, back it, back, back it on up. Back, back, back it on up. Now I realize that”

“But I know what I want” The girls finished and the student body clapped vigorously

“I’m fairly sure that was borderline pornography” Dmitri sighed

“That was effing hot, that is what that was” Derek smirked

“Whatever” Dmitri rolled his eyes

_____________________________________________________________________________________

“Hey, it’s Bruce right?” Derek smiled as he, Daniel, Rohan, Jason and Jake approached Brock in the courtyard

“It’s Brock” He spat

“Look Brock we’ve noticed you’ve been having trouble with the ladies and wanna give you a hand” Derek smirked

“Why do I have a terrible feeling about this?” Brock sighed as Jason and Daniel walked him towards the auditorium. Meanwhile at Sweet Dream Designs Boutique the girls crowded around McKenzie

“We hear you’re into Brock” Libretta smirked

“Well… Sorta he’s cute and funny, but I’d never pull a guy like him” McKenzie shrugged before turning back to look through the black dresses

“When you meet a girl you like. You should take my advice” Daniel, Jake, Jason and Rohan sang as the guys entered the auditorium

“Girls like boys like me…” Derek sang “Take the lead, she likes it when you’re in control”

“Let em’ breathe, chill out and go with the flow” Brock sang practically defending himself

“Make all the plans” Jason sang

“Don’t be impolite” Brock sang 

“I know what girls, know what girls, yeah I know what girls like” Brock and Derek sang

“A quick glance, bat your eyes and look away” Libretta sang

“Take a chance, why not ask him on a date?” McKenzie sang “Pick up the check.”

“No! Bake him a pie!” Melissa sang “I know what boys, know what boys, yeah I know what boys like”

“I know what girls like, you know what I mean?” Rohan sang

“I know what boys like, boys like girls like me” Libretta and the girls sang

“Like me!” Derek smirked

“Like me!” Kendra sang fanning herself

“Like me!” Brock smiled worried

“Like me!” Libretta giggled throwing a dress at McKenzie then shoving her into the dressing room

“Hang with the boys” Jake sang

“Don’t let her know how much you care” Rohan sang

“Look in her eyes, and tell her even if you’re scared” Brock sang

“You got it wrong!” Derek scoffed

“No! I got it right!” Brock sang

“I know what girls, know what girls, yeah I know what girls like” Brock and Derek sang

“Stretched pants” Angie sang pulling a pair of Spanx out of her handbag

“Cute sweater and sweet perfume” Valerie rolled her eyes

“Don’t dress for him, it’s better when you dress for you!” McKenzie sighed

“I keep it loose” Alyssa sang

“My outfit is tight!” Kendra sang running her hand down her body

“I know what boys like, know what boys, yeah I know what boys like” Alyssa and Angie sang

“I know what girls like, you know what I mean?” Jake and Rohan sang shoving Brock into a wheeled chair

“I know what boys like, boys like girls like me” The girls sang as they danced around the boutique

“I know what girls like, girls like boys like me!” The boys sang as Derek pulled clothes off of hangers for Brock

“All the girls, they think I’m groovy!” Derek smirked

“There’s only one girl that’s on my list” Brock sang wistfully as he changed shirts

“I know what girls like, girls like boys like me!” The boys all sang

“I know what boys like, boys like girls like me” The girls all sang as they crowded around McKenzie

“I know what girls like, girls like boys like me!” 

“I know what boys like, boys like girls like me”

“I know what girls like, girls like boys like me!” 

“I know what boys like, boys like girls like me”

“I know what girls like, girls like boys like me!”

“Like me!” Brock sang exiting the changing room dressed as douche-like as possible

“Like me!” Riley sang

“Like me!” Daniel sang

“Like me!” Angie sang

“Like me!” Jake sang

“Like me!” McKenzie smiled confidently “Wow, I look amazing!” She squealed

“Indeed you do” Libretta smiled

“But there’s no way I can afford this” McKenzie sighed looking at the $150 price tag

“Of course you can” Libretta smiled whipping out a Gold American Express card

“I can’t let you get me this!” McKenzie protested

“Oh but you must Kenzie!” Libretta cooed “It looks amazing on you, plus at $150 it’s practically a bargain bin dress” McKenzie said nothing just giving Libretta a look of doubt “Think nothing of it my dear, just think of it as a gift from your fairy godmother” Libretta grinned

“Only if you’re sure” McKenzie sighed

“Wonderful!” Libretta squealed “Now hurry and get changed we have many more dresses to try for Sectionals” McKenzie grinned twirling on her heel and running back into the changing room

“What are you up to Libby?” Kendra whispered

“All in due time Ken, all in due time”

“Okay all I wanna know is… Where are the New Directions?” Drew whispered to Dmitri 

“I know right!” Talia said as she and Riley joined the two on stage away from the rest of the group

“All the girls are dressed like Libretta…” Drew rolled his eyes

“Yeah, she had a slumber party after Sectional Shopping, myself and Talia were excluded cause of that glorious L word” Riley rolled her eyes

“Lasagne?” Drew raised an eyebrow

“Lesbian, you twerp!” Talia said hitting his shoulder

“Okay is it just me, or do the guys look like they took the wardrobe from an 80’s rock band and just mashed it up with the douchebaggery of Justin Bieber?” Dmitri sighed

“It’s not just you” The other three sighed in unison

“Hey guys” Valerie smiled as she joined the group

“Hey Libre- I mean Val” Talia grinned

“What was that T?” Valerie raised an eyebrow

“You look like you stole Libretta’s clothes” Riley rolled her eyes

“Really?” Valerie said taken aback

“Yeah, you do” Dmitri said “All of you look stupid, none of you look like who you really are underneath it all!”

“Are you calling me stupid Frog?” Libretta snarled

“No, you’re all acting stupid though” Drew sighed “You’re all so caught up in “OMG do you think Derek will like my dress?””

“Or, “If I wear my pants low enough do you think Aspen will like me?”” Talia rolled her eyes

“And we’re sick of it and we’re standing up against it” Riley said “Stupid girls and stupid boys”

“That makes me think of a song” Talia smirked “Hey band dweebs! HIT IT!”

“Aha, aha” Riley smirked as the song started “Stupid girl, stupid boys, stupid girls”

“Maybe if I act like that, that girl will call me back” The four sang “Porno Paparazzi girl, I don't wanna be a stupid girl”

“Go to Fred Segal, you'll find them there. Laughing loud so all the little people stare” Drew sang “Looking for a daddy to pay for the champagne”

“Drop a name” All four sang

“What happened to the dreams of a girl president? She's dancing in the video next to 50 Cent.” Talia sang disgusted “They travel in packs of two or three. With their itsy bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees”

“Where, oh where, have the smart people gone? Oh where, oh where could they be?” Dmitri sang

“Maybe if I act like that, that girl will call me back. Porno Paparazzi boy, I don't wanna be a stupid boy” Drew and Dmitri sang

“Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back. Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl” Riley and Talia sang

“Break it down now” Drew said

“Disease's growing, it's epidemic. I'm scared that there ain't a cure” Dmitri sang, the group in front of the four looked down. McKenzie made her way over to the stage kicking off her heels and removing jewellery “The world believes it and I'm going crazy. I cannot take any more”

“I'm so glad that I'll never fit in. That will never be me.” Talia sang as Valerie, Brock and Jason followed McKenzie’s lead “Outcasts and girls with ambition. That's what I wanna see”

“Disasters all around” McKenzie sang glaring at the rest of the New Directions “World despaired. Your only concern “Will it mess up my hair?”

“Maybe if I act like that, that girl will call me back. Porno Paparazzi boy, I don't wanna be a stupid boy” Brock, Drew, Dmitri and Jason sang

“Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back. Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl” McKenzie, Riley, Talia and Valerie sang

“Do ya think? Do ya think? Do ya think?” Jason rapped “I like this, like this, like this”

“Pretty will you love me girl, silly I'm so lucky girl. Pull my hair and suck it girl, stupid girl!” The four girls sang “Pretty would you love me girl, silly I'm so lucky girl. Pull my hair and suck it girl, stupid girl!”

“Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back. Push up my bra like that, stupid girl!” Valerie sang the rest of the group looked at one another and sighed heavily as they made their way over to the stage

“Maybe if I act like that, that girl will call me back. Porno Paparazzi boy, I don't wanna be a stupid boy” the whole group sang “Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back. Push up my bra like that, I don't wanna be a stupid girl”

“Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back. Push up my bra like that,” Riley sang

“Stupid girl. Stupid boy. Stupid girl” Brock sang the group all pulled in together for a hug when they all heard the sound of applause, they turned to find Angel, Sugar, Quinn, Kurt, Adam and JP all walking down the aisle towards them

“That was amazing guys” Quinn smiled applauding still

“Thank ma’am” Melissa smiled

“Now that’s what New Directions is all about” Kurt grinned “Miss Motta, Miss Adams. I never should’ve doubted you” He applauded the two women

“That was nothing!” Derek said “That was us, if you wanna see what they’ve done for us, take a seat and we’ll show you” The adults all did as instructed and sat along the front row as the New Directions ran off to get changed. About ten minutes passed and the New Directions returned to the stage wearing “Power Shirts” they just made with the help of one another they placed the stools they were carrying down in a line and looked at the adults

“At the start of this week I was ashamed of being a part of this group” Derek sighed wearing a shirt that was printed with the word “Fearless”

“Myself and Derek here offered to give “Cool lessons” so we wouldn’t be a laughing stock anymore” Valerie hung her head in shame looking at her shirt stating “Selfless”

“But throughout this week, we’ve learnt that getting caught up in labels and popularity can do much more harm than good” Libretta sighed, her shirt saying “Generous” 

“We went through three extreme makeovers” McKenzie sighed her shirt stating “Proud”

“And during which we lost who we were as a group” Brock said his shirt printed “Strong”

“But now we remember the task Miss Motta and Miss Adams gave us at the beginning of this week” Jessica smiled, her shirt stating the words “Beauty Queen”

“They said to take the word that we were labelled with and print it on a shirt” Kendra smiled with her “Sassy” shirt

“We did, then we performed a song called Unpretty, which talks about how at the end of the day if we still listen to the words that make us feel unpretty, we’re the one’s who are tripping” Jason smiled his word “Sweet” blazoned across his chest

“They also gave us the task of taking that word and finding one we could make our “Power Word”” Melissa grinned at her shirt saying “Diva Talent”

“A word that came from the label, in my case, Queer” Riley said “And make it into a positive, like mine and how it says Free” 

“But in the end we decided that we would pick our power words as a group, words that we describe each other as” Dmitri smiled, his word being “Brave”

“And now we’re gonna perform one last song, that really sums things up for us” Alyssa grinned at her shirt “Individual” as the music started up

“I stare at my reflection in the mirror: "Why am I doing this to myself?" Losing my mind on a tiny error. I nearly left the real me on the shelf. No, no, no, no, no…” Dmitri sang almost in tears

“Do you have to make me feel like, there's nothing left of me?” Talia sang her shirt stating “Creative”

“Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars! Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing. It's okay not to be okay. Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart.” New Directions all sang “Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising. Just be true to who you are!”

“Go on and try to tear me down.” Angie and Jasmine sang with their “Bootylicious” and “Role Model” shirts “I will be rising from the ground. Like a skyscraper. Like a skyscraper”

“Brushing my hair—do I look perfect? I forgot what to do to fit the mould, yeah!” Aspen sang wearing her “Opinionated” shirt

“Would it make you feel better, to watch me while I bleed?” Drew sang wearing his “Unique” shirt

“The more I try the less it's working, yeah. 'Cause everything inside me screams. No, no, no, no, no…” Rohan sang wearing his “Independent” shirt

“You can take everything I have. You can break everything I am.” Libretta and Kendra sang “Like I'm made of glass. Like I'm made of paper”

“It's okay not to be okay.” New Directions sang “Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart. But tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising. There's nothing wrong with who you are!”

“Yes, no, egos, fake shows, like whoa! Just go and leave me alone!” Jake sang wearing his “Indefinable” shirt

“Go run, run, run. I'm gonna stay right here. Watch you disappear” McKenzie sang

“Go run, run, run. Yeah, it's a long way down. But I am closer to the clouds up here” Brock sang

“Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars! Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing. It's okay not to be okay. Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart.” New Directions all sang “Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising. Just be true to who you are!”

“I will be rising from the ground. Like a skyscraper. Like a skyscraper” Alyssa sang smiling again at her shirt more than anything. The adults rose and gave the kids a standing ovation

“That was amazing!” Sugar smiled at the group

“We have another surprise” Derek smiled as he and Valerie walked off stage, they returned with two shirts

“We made these for you” Valerie smiled as she and Derek walked over to Angel and Sugar, Derek handed Angel a shirt printed with the words “Natural Woman” and Valerie gave Sugar a shirt with the word “Superstar” on it

“I think one last song is in order” Quinn grinned “Do y’all know Eliza Doolittle?” 

“You want us to sing My Fair Lady?” Libretta asked confused

“No! The British indie singer” Quinn laughed

“I do!” Talia smiled “I love indie music”

“Awesome, Mr Ryan, Mr Crawford-Hummel, Mr Crawford. Would you like to accompany me to make our own shirts?” Quinn smirked

“Why I’d be honoured” Kurt smiled, the four walked off and returned a few minutes later with their own shirts, Quinn: “Queen Bee”, Kurt: “Not The Boy Next Door”, Adam: “Strong” and JP “Sweet as Bubblegum”

“I get tired and upset.” Quinn sang as she walked over and hugged Sugar “And I'm trying to care a little less. When I Google I only get depressed. I was taught to dodge those issues. I was told”

“Don't worry, there's no doubt. There's always something to cry about.” Jake sang “When you're stuck in an angry crowd. They don't think what they say. Before they open their mouth”

“You gotta. Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag. And bury them beneath the sea.” The whole group sang

“I don't care what the people may say. What the people may say about me” Kurt sang

“Pack up your troubles, get your old kit bag. Don't worry about the cavalries”

“I don't care what the whisperers say. 'Cause they whisper too loud for me” Sugar sang

“Hot topic. Maybe I should drop it. It's a touchy subject.” Jessica “And I like to tiptoe 'round. The ship going down”

“We got no penny, no pound. So if your business is running out” Angel sang “It's not my business to talk about. They don't think what to say. Before they open their mouth”

“You gotta. Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag. And bury them beneath the sea” The group sang

“I don't care what the people may say. What the people may say about me” JP sang

“Pack up your troubles, get your old kit bag. Don't worry about the cavalries.”

“I don't care what the whisperers say. 'Cause they whisper too loud for me” Adam sang

“It's just to test your ability. Let's count from one to infinity” Talia sang “Don't rock the boat, gotta let it be. Gotta let it go, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh” The singing continued in voice-over as a montage of each New Direction member and each of the adults one by one got a photo taken in their shirts

“Tweet, tweet. Tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet” Quinn and Sugar sang “Tweet, tweet, tweet. Tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet.”

“Tweet, tweet, tweet. Tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet” Aspen and Valerie sang “Tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet”

“Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag. And bury them beneath the sea” The group sang 

“I don't care what the people may say. What the people may say about me” Kendra sang

“Pack up your troubles, get your old kit bag. Don't worry about the cavalries”

“I don't care what the whisperers say. 'Cause they whisper too loud for me” Brock sang

“Yeah, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. Yeah, eh, eh, eh. Yeah, eh, eh, eh” Quinn finished the song in  voice over as Sugar hung a poster of all the photos in her and Angel’s office
