Glee Round Table: "Blame It on the Alcohol"

at . Comments

It's been awhile, but welcome to the latest edition of the Glee Round Table. A trio of staff members is here to break down "Blame It on the Alcohol," tackling the episode's best quotes, performances and more.

Won't you join editor-in-chief Matt Richenthal, senior critic Steve Marsi and fellow panel member Eric Hochberger for the following analysis?


What was your favorite quote from the episode?
Matt: A surprise winner this week from Principal Figgins for his introduction to the group's assembly performance: "And now, performing the hit song Tik and also Tok, by rapper Ke and dollar sign ha, New Directions."

Steve: I loved drunk Rachel and can't decide between her telling Blaine that his face "tastes awesome" and her referring to him as "Blaine Warbler." We have a tie!

Eric: Gotta give it to Will for getting seriously racy in his drunk dialing: " I rode a bull and was thinking of you?!?" Didn't know the guy had it in him.

What was your favorite song from the episode?
Matt: "Tik Tok," no doubt. It had the great intro from Figgins, as mentioned above, following by the important life lesson: never drink a Bloody Mary two days after getting wasted on the morning of a big performance.

Steve: Agreed, Matt. Heather Morris is my favorite lead singer because she can just dance so well as she sings.

Eric: Coach Beiste on stage? One of the few country singles ever covered? Easy: "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer."

Was Kurt out of line in his reaction to Blaine and Rachel?
Matt: I don't think so. Even if you want to argue that he was being unfair to Blaine, haven't we all reacted in a similar manner when a role model lets us down? Even if it's a bit irrational? Blaine wasn't just billed by the show as someone out and proud; he sold himself that same way to Kurt. Made perfect sense to me that Kurt would be taken aback by Blaine's reaction to one drunken kiss.

Steve: No. It's not even as complicated as any discourse on bisexuality: Kurt likes Blaine. Kurt wants to date Blaine. Kurt will get upset by Blaine wanting to smooch any lips that don't belong to him.

Eric: Not nearly as out of line as he was in his conversation with his dad. What does he want from Burt?!? The guy is as understanding as one can be and didn't even issue a double standard about sleeping over here. He said the same rules apply to Kurt and Finn.

Rachel wrote a song about her headband. About which items should other characters pen a single?
Matt: Mercedes and her attitude. It's diva-tastic!

Steve: Will and his hair products. How do the curls stay in place so well?

Eric: Sue and her tracksuits. There's enough material there for a box set.

The best part of the entire episode? THIS SCENE: Finn: You're not drinking?
Kurt: No, I'm still trying to impress Blaine. -----shows Blaine drunk off his ass flailing wildly---------- Kurt:.......Apparently, he doesn't have the same concern......


"don't you want me" Rachael and Blaine killed it!!!


Changed my mind.
The best song was DEFINITELY My Headband :D


Agree with Jose. The best line was "It tastes like Pink!! It tastes like PINK!!!"
That line cracks me up every time I watch the episode :D


"Everyone drink responsibly." - Brittany S. Pierce AFTER she throws up on Rachel . Heather Morris made this episode for me , she was just awesome . Point . Blank . Period . But the autotune was whack though . Heather has an amazing voice and I know "Ke dollar sign ha" had autotune on her voice but on Heather's it just sounded the same . Almost like Heather was lipsynching , but I don't think she was . Besides that the dancing and performance itself was amazing . As well as her stripping at Rachel's party . :D


Loved this episode!
But the highlight for me was Darren/Lea's duet. It was something I didn't even know I was looking forward to and it was awesome:)


I agree with Matt for the best quote. That was so good :)


Yay round table is back!!! Now what happened to the 90210 round table? I must ask tv fanatic to BRING IT BACK!!


loved the "It tastes like pink" lines from rachel! Was pissed at Finn for his rudeness to her though but SOOOO glad she finally got a tad of a backbone about the comment he made about her being touchy feely...there is a way to be nice about someone being touchy like that instead of just being an ass and just calling her out...I loved that she got up and got a little seemed like they were getting back to being at least friends at the beginning and then he ends up being mean... I totally believe Kurt was mother and i discussed this...if I hadn't been straight and my mother knew it even though she was straight to help me understand sex (since sex doesn't necessarily mean male/female) she would have researched the mechanics (because when parents give the sex talk to kids they use technical terms or comfortable terms to describe stuff) and explained how everything went....ALSO Rachel...she has 2 gay dads....being that she doesn't have the equipment that they do...yes it would be awkward being they most likely hadn't done what they were explaining to her but they would know what the mechanics are for her preference of sex...i don't blame kurt at all in all honesty burt wasn't unreasonable in him asking kurt to clear it with him...most parents would be adverse to their child having a significant other (potential or actual) spend the night Burt was acting like a parent...


such a great ep
