Sue, still on a quest for femininity, turned to Unique for help. The result was flat-ironed hair, lipstick, a skirt, and a pink blazer. Sue rocked the evaluation, even after Figgins tried to rig it by pointing out a dangerous gas leak in the choir room. Apparently Sue's dance number with Will wasn't her first "gas-induced fantasy dance sequence," and she had found and fixed the leak the night before.

"What Does the Fox Say?": When I first realized what they were doing, I rolled my eyes. This seemed a little late to the party, and this wasn't a song I was dying to hear another rendition of. However, once Rachel hit that big note, I couldn't hate it as much as I had originally wanted. Rachel's vocals are my weakness, and I'm not ashamed. C
