Glee (2009–2015): Season 4, Episode 4 - The Break-Up - full transcript

In New York City, Rachel and Kurt are caught off guard by unexpected visitors. Meanwhile, Santana and Brittany adjust to their long-distance relationship.

(bell ringing)

Too late. I saw them.

Saw what? Your free lunch tickets.

Sucks being poor.

Before the recession, my
mom was a real estate agent.

Solid middle class.

Now she's the only black waitress

working at the Lima Country Club,

taking orders from a bunch of

rich old white guys who barely tip.

And it kills me, she's
working extra shifts

to pay for my dance lessons.

Wait... you dance?

Let's just keep that between us.

Oh... young love.

BLAINE: Do you remember when
you first started dating Santana

and I started dating Kurt,

back before everyone was
so busy and so... far away.

Things were so much simpler.

We had so much more hope and innocence.

Every day was just like Valentine's Day.

We're still young.

Shouldn't we still be
experiencing those things?

(bell ringing)


Somebody slept late.

It's lunchtime.

Do you want a Croque Madame?

We didn't go to bed till late.

Thank God for earplugs.

I love you both but I don't
want to hear any of that.

We didn't do anything.

He didn't even talk to me,
we just, like, laid there.

I'm gonna take this down to the park

and watch drug deals go down.

It's good to see you again, Finn.

You, too, little brother.

Um, so, are you hungry?

Can I make you some eggs?

Yeah. Thanks.

Wow, this place is awesome.

I can't do this, Finn.

I don't understand. I
don't know what's going on.

Why are you here and why
aren't you in your uniform?

Because I'm not in the Army.

Well, I was, for 16 days...

(Drill Sergeant yelling)

FINN: It wasn't that bad.

I really felt like I was someplace.

I could make a difference,

and I'm pretty used
to getting yelled at,

so I was doing okay.

Then, one day, I was cleaning Rachel...

they make you give your rifle a name...


Right through my thigh.

Thank God it didn't hit any bone.

I got a semi-honorable discharge.

So I've been backpacking through Georgia

for the past couple months.

I'm sorry I didn't call you, but...

but I was just so embarrassed.

I mean, I left with

so much certainty and confidence.

I was gonna redeem my
dad and make you proud.

I couldn't face you
seeing me as a Lima loser.

Enough of this... enough lumping around.

All right, so what?

The Army didn't work out.

Plans change.

You're here now, with me, in...

in the greatest city in the whole world

and what a better place for you and I

to find you a new dream.

Like what? Before the Army,

you applied to Pace to be an actor.

You know, that was obviously
not the right school but...

I don't know, maybe NYADA is.

I mean, why don't you come with me

to all of my classes this week,

and if you love it,
then you can move in here

and we'll spend the whole
year just finding a way

for you to get in.

You serious?

I love it here, but something
has always been missing.

I let you go once and I'm
not gonna let it happen again.

I mean, I'm not jealous, I
just think that it's insane

that all Porcelain had to do

is take photos of
every ridiculous outfit

he's ever paired with a Cossack hat,

and a see-through raincoat

and then show up at an interview

where he is lauded as a visionary

because his jodhpurs happened
to match his riding crop.

Well, you know, you could
follow your dream, too.

Your mom gave you that money and said

you could go to New
York, too, iyou wanted.

I like being in college.

My schedule is crazy but I love being

a cheerleader and I like the idea that

I'm never more than a
few hours away from you.

Can't you do laundry at school?

Mm-mm. My first week
there, I heard a rumor

that all the water in Louisville

is just purified runoff from
the Kentucky Derby stables.

Nasty. But...

mo importantly, I promised myself that

I would only do laundry
at home, that way,

no matter how busy I
got, I would be forced

to come home every few weeks,

and then I'd get to see you.

Are you okay?

Yeah, sorry.

I was up late last night,

reading Desecration:
Antichrist Takes the Throne.

It's the ninth book in
the Left Behind series

of the apocalyptic Christian
novels about the end times

and the rise of the Antichrist,
who name is Nicolae Carpathia,

or Barack Obama,
depending on who you ask.

Brit, those Left Behind
books are really intense.

What teacher is making you read those?

And don't tell me
that Mr. Schue is doing

Christian music week.

It's not a class, it's
an after-school club

that Sam and Joe and Kitty
and Dottie Kazatori are in.

And you should come tomorrow.

Who's Dottie Kazatori?

She's Tina's assistant.

Everyone graduated and things got weird.

(school bell ringing, phone buzzing)

Hey, stranger.

(phone ringing) Hey. Uh...

Crap! Can you hold on one second?

Isabelle Wright's office.
How can I help you?

Um, it's me, Kurt.

(phone ringing) Oh,
my God, I'm so sorry.

Uh, look, ve taken
over Isabelle's phones

for the week, and they
just won't stop ringing.

It's... it's okay.

If you want to call me back
later, we can talk then. I can't.

Isabelle says we have to get the column

on the Web site by midnight tonight.

(phone ringing, Kurt groans)

Look, I know this is frustrating.

It's frustrating for me, too,

and I don't want to miss our phone dates

but, you know, this-this
could be a career for me.

I get that; I-I do.

I really get it.

It's just...

I... really miss you.

A lot, okay?

I miss talking to you
and I miss hugging you

and I miss messing around with you...

Me, too.

But you're coming in two weeks, right?

I know, but... what am I
supposed to do until then,

just hold my breath?

(phone ringing)

Shoot. Joan Didion's calling.

She always has the best gossip.

Um, all right, I will
call you or text you

on a break, okay? Okay.

Okay. I love you.

(bell ringing)

FINN: Look at her, she's amazing.

Even when she's not all dolled up.

I've never seen her so alive.

She's found the place where she belongs,

where she thrives.

I just wish I could find a place for me

because I definitely don't belong here.

I'd never get into
NYADA, and what the hell

am I gonna do in New York,

run a hot dog cart outside
of Madison Square Garden?

No way.

I used to be the man of her dreams,

but now we're not
even in the same world.

(Rachel squeals happily)

Dude, I'm not wearing a suit
for a night out on the town.

I didn't even bring a suit.

Then you can't wear Dad jeans

and a rugby shirt to Callbacks.

What's Callbacks?

This amazing bar

that all the NYADA students go to,

and Friday nights are the best

because everybody gets up and sings,

and it's where we're going tonight,

and it's gonna be great.

So I have to dress up
to go to a karaoke bar?

Come on, Finn, we'll let you
sing "Don't Stop Believin',"

or something equally uplifting.

I don't... I don't know.

I'm so out of practice, I
haven't even sang in the shower

since Nationals.

(knocking on door)




KURT: This is amazing!

But I wasn't expecting you

for another two weeks.

I know, I just couldn't wait any longer.

I miss you too much.

Oh, I miss you, too. So good to see you.

Wait! I can't believe you're here.

I missed you so much. Hi.

Hi. Oh, Finn!

What are you doing here?

I'm... not really sure
at the moment, but...

It's fantastic...
we're all together here.

Just like the good old days.

(playing a mellow tune)

You okay?

You seem a little...

I'm-I'm great.

It was just a... it was a rough flight.

I had a middle seat because

I booked the ticket so last-minute.

Well, I, for one, am glad you did.

It's our first night out in New York.

We'll never forget this.

Uh, Coke and, uh...

Oh, amaretto sour, please... virgin.

It's good. Hey, Finn, Rachel.

Brody, hi.

Hey, Brody, good to see you again, man.

Yeah, you too, you too.

So, how's the, uh,
visit been going so far?

Amazing. I took him to school

to get the full NYADA
experience together.

Cool. Well, in that case, I
hope you're singing tonight.

You haven't really been to NYADA

until you've sung at Callbacks.

This is what I've been
trying to tell him,

and I really, really want him to sing.

"Give Your Heart a
Break" with me, but...

But I'm not a student, so...

Well, you're with Rachel,
which makes you honorary.

And I'm buddies with
Pascal, the piano player.

And the song works
better as a duet, so...

Well, why don't you
guys sing it together?

It's a NYADA tradition,
right? And you guys

are both NYADA students.



All right, let's do it.

I love you.

Wish me luck.

I'm so nervous. It's my
Off-Off Broadway debut.

BRODY: It's all good. I got your back.

(cheering and applause)

Oh, my God, you guys.

It's so amazing up there.

You have to do your
Sweeney Todd mega-medley.

And risk a Page Six
spread? I don't think so.

Not happening. I want to sing something.

Yeah, just, uh, ask Pascal.


How was I? Was I good?

Yeah. Yeah!

Um, hi, everyone.

I, um... I want to sing a song

that's very special to me.

This is a song that I sang

the first time I ever
met the love of my life.

(cheering and applause)

So, you and your friend
sounded great together.

Oh, I wish you would have

gotten up there and sang with me.

Yeah, I just... I don't fit in here.

This place is just too big.

It moves too fast.

People are too talented.

No. I felt that way
when I first moved here.

Even in Ohio, I knew
you were meant for this.

I'm just not.

So, that was... moving.

I guess I'm kind of
wondering why that was.

Well, you know, I, uh...
I really missed you.

I miss you, too.

And I'm really glad that you're here.

But you've been so
emotional and weirdly sad.

Please stop pretending
that there's nothing wrong.

I was with someone.

So, are you sure you and that
Brody guy are just friends?

Look, I told you, everything's...
Just, ple-please...

don't lie to me.

I couldn't get in touch with you, okay?

I-I... you weren't answering my calls

or my text messages.

I didn't know where you were

or even if you were okay.
So you were with him.

I kissed him, but that's it.

Okay, and only just because you told me

that you wanted me to
be free. I can't believe

I even said that. I'm so stupid.

It was Sebastian, wasn't it?

No, it... it wasn't Sebastian,

but it doesn't...

It didn't mean anything.

It was just a hook-up,
okay? Who was it?

It doesn't matter who it was with, Kurt.

What matters is that I was by myself.

I needed you.

I needed you around,
and you weren't there.

And I was lonely, and I'm...

I'm really sorry.

You don't think that I've been lonely?

You don't think that
I've had temptations?

But I didn't act on it
because I knew what it meant.

It meant something
horrible and awful and...

I'm so sorry, Kurt. I really am.

KURT: You can't just run away.

Dude, you totally spooked me.

I thought I was the only one awake.

Been waiting for somebody to come out.

I was hoping it'd be Blaine.

You guys okay?

I kind of feel like I'm going to die.

Guess I don't have to ask you

what you're doing, apparently.

I'll talk to her later about it.

I... I just got to get away for a bit.

Six months ago, did you ever think

that things would be like this?

Sometimes, I miss high school, you know?

Come on, give me a hug before I go.

Do you want me to say
anything to Rachel?


(school bell ringing)

Hi, Boobless. It is my duty
as a soldier of the Lord

to invite you to McKinley's
newest and most important club,

the Left Behind Club. Kitty
thinks the end of times is coming.

It's a fact that the Book of
Revelations predicted Twitter.

It's one of the seven
signs of the apocalypse,

along with porn, unexplainable
weather anomalies,

Martian rovers, Barney Frank,
the Middle East, and MSNBC.

The Left Behind Club accepts everyone,

even losers and lezzies, so
your whole Glee Club's invited.

Well, you're welcome to join us
as long as you're not a Muslim.

It's like Kirk Cameron
said, it's never too late...

until it's too late.

Okay, everybody, listen up.

Y'all are sinners, and you
better get right with God

toot sweet, because Jesus
just logged onto Orbitz

and booked himself a
plane ticket back to Earth.

See, he's got an awesome dad named God

who's throwing him a bitchin'
party called Armageddon,

where he's gonna get
to kick off his sandals

dance a little bit, judge
the crap out of everybody.

SANTANA: Hi. I have a question.

What the hell are you talking
about? Um, the Rapture.

When the end times come,
the true believers in Christ

will be lifted up, body
and soul, into heaven,

leaving everyone else to duke it out.

What about those of us

who are still on the
fence about all of this?

I don't know what there is to
be on the fence about, Dottie.

Sorry I made you come to this.

That's okay. You're half-Jewish, right?

Mm-hmm. Does that mean you'll
float up to heaven at half speed?

I just heard there's an
elderly Japanese woman

who fell down in the bathroom.

She doesn't speak English,

and she needs your
help. I'll be right back.

Santana, come on, we should help
her. SANTANA: No, wait, Brit...

I'm pretty sure I know
what's going on here.

Okay, everybody, let's go.

Move it, move it, move it!

What's everybody doing?

JAKE: Fake Rapture. It was Kitty's idea.

I can't find any Japanese ladies.

Hello? Where did everyone go?

Oh, my God.

We've been left behind.
We've been left behind.

We've been left behind!

That's what it feels like to
be left behind, Dottie Kazatori.

JAKE: Kitty! This has
gone way too far, okay?

(Dottie whimpering, mumbling)
Dottie seems... pretty damaged.

(Dottie keening)

MARLEY: I think I'm gonna go, now.

No! Wait. Please don't go.

I just really don't
like that Kitty girl.

And... I can't believe you do.

Brittany, can-can we please go home?

I don't think this club is good for you.

I'm not leaving.

Being left behind sucks.
It's just a stupid prank.

You don't get it. You
me behind, and it hurt.


That's exactly what it felt like.

(school bell ringing)

Oh, my God.


Hey, buddy. Hi.

You look great. Oh,
it's good to see you.

Wait, I don't...

Hold on, I don't get it.

What happened... what
happened to the Army?

It... didn't work out.


Well, um...

when'd you get in?

Have you spoken with Rachel? She...

She's been worried sick about you.

It's so good to see you, Mr. Shue.

Can I talk to you about something?

Yeah, of course.

(stifled sob)

(school bell ringing)

(school bell ringing)


Um, by the time I got up,

you were already gone.

I didn't get a chance to say good-bye.

Why'd you do that to him?

I don't know.

I just...

There's no excuse. He won't talk to me.

I don't even know if we're broken up.

Finn! Dude, what's up?

I'm just passing through,

visiting my mom and Burt,

and Mr. Shue said I
could come by if I wanted.

Finn Hudson in the house, yo!

Do you know who that is?

Oh! SAM: Listen up! For all of you guys

who don't know, this is
Finn Hudson right here.

I thought you joined
the Army! I-I did, but...

WILL: But things don't always work
out the way you planned them to.

And I said to Finn

the same thing I say everyone
who comes through this club:

We're a family, and
you're always welcome here.

Even if you just need to take a
break and think things through.

In any case, we have a lot to do today.

First order of business:

Deciding what the fall
musical's going to be.

(cheers) All right!

So I'm passing out a list

of possibilities. Peter Pan?

Fiorello? What the heck?

Unique wants to do Hedwig.

Uh, Tina wants to do Pacific Overtures,

Miss Saigon, and Flower Drum Song.

The challenge is picking something

that plays to our collective strengths,

and that won't set off a firestorm

in the community like Rocky Horror did.

You should do Grease.


I know it 'cause the song

I auditioned for Glee Club
was from Grease, remember?

Yeah. Guys like it.

Girls like it.

People like my mom like
it. It's about high school,

and growing up, and...

being true to yourself.

Plus, the songs rock.

The wisdom of Solomon...

All right.

Grease is the word.

Yes! (cheering)

Finn's back!

What's that? Open it.


I'm officially on the blue ribbon panel

to improve arts education.

Oh, my goodness!

Oh, my goodness, Mr.
Schuester goes to Washington.

Oh, congratulations! Thank you.

Thank you. (giggling)

And what would you say
about Miss Pillsbury

also going to Washington?

, my gosh, I'd love to.

For like a long weekend, or something.

That would be wonderful.

No, like... like for a few months.

I want you to be there with me.

(laughs nervously)

What about my job?

That's what a tenure's for.

Your job will be waiting
when you get back.

This is not that I'm
afraid of losing my job.

This is that I like my job.

Look, this isn't a
permanent thing, Emma.

It's like an extended
vacation. A sabbatical.

Teachers take them all the time.

I don't want a sabbatical.

But I-I thought you
were supportive of this.

I am, because I know how
much this means to you,

but this is for you.

I didn't know you just expected me

to drop my entire life.

Emma, I love you.

You're my fiancée.

All I'm saying is, I
don't want to be alone

and not be with you.

And I don't want to sit alone
in some hotel room somewhere

doing nothing, while you're
off fulfilling your dreams.

You know, I don't think
what I'm asking is so crazy.

I thought you'd be excited.

So you thought I'd
just pop the champagne,

follow you around like an
obedient little puppy dog?

Is that really all
you think of me, Will?

No, of course not, Emma.

Oh, come on, we still
need to talk about this.

We just did.

You just don't like what I have to say.

(distant phone ringing)

Well, someone's either
seriously crushing on you,

or seriously trying to
make up for something.

The latter.

Ouch. He cute?

The cutest.

Oh, that sucks. I'm sorry.

Hey, you need to go binge-shopping?

Isabelle's summoning us
to the conference room.

I can cover for you.

I'm okay.

I'll be okay.

(school bell ringing)

You wanted to see me?

Sophomore year I used
to sit in this back row,

and secretly watch you.

I counted the number of
times you'd smile at me,

and I'd die on days that you didn't.

I miss this place so much.

It's where we fell in love.

Where I could say things with music,

when words just weren't enough.

And I need to tell you something

that I don't know how to say.

Sad songs make me really sad,

and I don't want to be sad.

I haven't been a good girlfriend to you.

I can't come home on the weekends and

pretend that things
are the way they were,

because they aren't.

And I don't want to be like

all of those other
long-distance relationships,

that, you know, hang in there
for a few months, and then...

break up when someone eventually
cheats or things get weird.

I would never cheat on you.

I know.

I know, and I would never
cheat on you, either,

but... if we're being completely honest,

I had, well, I guess

the best way to describe it would be...

an energy exchange?

SANTANA: I was cramming for this
really boring sociology class,

and I looked up, and this
girl was staring at me.

She smiled a little too long,

which means she was either crazy,

or a lesbian.

And judging by the stack of
Virginia Woolf she was reading,

she was into me. So I smiled back.

I had an attraction.

And you,

you may have had one
or you might have one,

and that happens.

Let's just do the
mature thing here, okay?

This is not an official breakup,

but let's just be honest that

long-distance relationships are
almost impossible to maintain.

Because both people are rarely

getting what they need,

especially at our age.

(sniffles) This sounds a
lot like a breakup to me.

You know this isn't working.

You know I will always
love you the most.

I love you, too.

(school bell ringing)

I'm sorry about the Left Behind club.

That's Kitty's thing, not mine.

I just don't get it.

I don't get why someone like
you is with someone like Kitty.

What do you mean, someone like
me? You act like you don't care

what anyone thinks, but you
obviously are just as desperate

to fit in as everyone
else if you'll date her.

You don't know how it feels
to really be on the outside.

The blacks kids think I'm too white;
The white kids think I'm too black.

Kitty's funny and hot,
and yeah, a little crazy,

but you know what, she likes me

and when I'm next to her,

no one makes fun of me

for once.

What's happening here?

You coveting my man, itty-bitty?

Kitty, come on, ease up.

I heard they're opening up
a new Ronald McDonald House

in Lima just for you
and your finger-licking,

Gilbert-Grape-looking mama. Hey!

That's enough.

I'm sorry, or what?

Or I'm breaking up with you.

You do not want to
break up with me, okay?

I am like a bad Carrie
Underwood song once I get going.

Yeah, well, I'll take my chances.

We're done.

You did this.

Well, you're both gonna regret this turn

of events because I will
tell you one more thing.

Obama's gonna lose.


Thank you.

You didn't have to do that.

Actually, I think I did.

Hey, do you want to go
through sheet music for Grease?

I was thinking of auditioning

for Sandy, and I think

you'd be really great... Actually,

I have to go.

But I'll see you later

in Glee Club, okay?


(school bell ringing)

(footsteps approaching)

This is where you proposed to me.

When you did, you reminded me it
was where we had our first date.

It's also where we first met.

Do you remember that?

Yeah, glee rehearsal.

You, uh, you really freaked me out.

This place is kind
of like our Jerusalem.

All roads seem

to just lead us back here.

I went to your house

and to the tire shop.

I should have known you
would've just been here though.

I know it sounds kind of weird,

but I just felt like singing up here.

Seems to have helped me
figure out stuff before, so...

Yeah, I would have just,
you know, come here first,

if you would have picked up your phone

or answered my text messages.

Instead I had to get on a
plane and drive around town,

looking for you, like an idiot.

I'm sorry. I just needed time to think.

You had four months.

I hated you for what you did
to me at that train station.

I was trying to help you. I hated you.

But then when I got to New
York, I thought how much

you love me

and how hard that
must have been for you.

And I thought,


this is what a man looks like.

This is how a man loves.

But you...

not telling me where
you were for four months

and sneaking out before sunrise,

in the middle of the night,
without saying good-bye,

that is not being a man, Finn.

I'm trying to give you your freedom!

I don't need you to give me my freedom!

I am a grown woman.

I don't need you to hide from me,

to keep me from doing
what is right for me.

Like that Brody guy?

I didn't do Brody, okay?

And don't you think that I would
have rather have been with you?

Well, didn't you say he was on Broadway?

Right? And he's got, like,
three-percent body fat.

Who am I?

I barely even graduated high school,

and my life has absolutely

no direction.

Don't you get it?

No matter how rich

or famous or successful I become,

when it comes to you,


I'm always gonna be that moon-eyed girl

who freaked you out at
our first glee rehearsal.

You were the first boy

who made me feel loved

and sexy

and visible.

You are my first love.


I want, more than anything,

for you to be my last.

But I can't do this anymore.

At least, not now.

We're done.


What am I gonna do with my life?

I don't have my girl,
I don't have a job,

I don't have a place in this world.

You have you.

And that's better than
anyone else on the planet,

as far as I'm concerned.
