Glee (2009–2015): Season 6, Episode 13 - Dreams Come True - full transcript

In the final episode of Glee, the story comes full circle and concludes with Vice President Sue Sylvester recognizing the accomplishments of Will Schuster and the Glee Club. She applauds him for setting the standard when it comes to understanding the importance of including arts in the ciriculumn and by 2020 several school districts in the country have followed the lead set by WMHS.

Show circle, everybody.

Welcome to Nationals.


I want you guys
to remember something.

Glee Club is not
about competition.

It's about something deeper.

Glee is about
opening yourself up to joy.


It's time.


Can't remember the last time
I was this nervous.

Oh, well, you don't
look nervous at all.

You look great.

Are you ready?


ANNOUNCER: 20, count 'em,
20 of this nation's

best high school show choirs

have poured out their talent
all over this stage.

And now we're down
to the best of the best.

From Greenville, South
Carolina, the Harmony Busters.

(audience cheers, applauds)

From Lima, Ohio,
the New Directions!

(audience cheers, applauds)

And from Portland, Oregon,
the Soprano-gasms.

(audience cheers, applauds)

Only one of these amazing teams
can claim the title

of the best high school
show choir in America.

In third place,

it's the Harmony Busters.

(audience cheers, applauds)

And now, the first place winner

of the 2015 high school show
choir nationals championship is

the New Directions!

? ?

(school bell ringing)

Uh, uh, I-I'm sorry.

Would you mind
saying that again?

I-I'm not sure
I understood you correctly.

The District Board of
Education has decided

to make McKinley
an arts school.

In a very short
time from now,

you and I will
be standing

in the choir room

of the William McKinley
High School

for the Performing Arts.

Wh-Wh-What happened?

To be completely
honest, Will,

you happened.

Over the last decade,

school districts across the
country have been facing

multi-million dollar
budget shortfalls.


And our quick fix was

eliminating arts
programs altogether.

Prioritizing what we
would hope would be

more essential subjects
like math, reading, science.

You know what?

We were wrong.

Scores did not go up.

In fact, in some places,
they got worse.

But you-- you refused
to let that stop you.

And I decided it was time
for me to stick my neck out

and make a pitch to the board.

And to my great surprise,
they agreed with me.

Superintendent Harris, I mean...
this is incredible news.

Please, please,
if-if there's anything

I can do to help,
just-just let me know.

What are you talking about?

I'm gonna have you
run the school.

Uh, I beg your pardon?

I'm making you principal, Will.



Wait, now, remember.

That cookie is
for dessert.

Oh, come on.

That is not an appetizer,
all right?

Now that you're the principal,
you have to set

a good nutritional example
for the other teachers...

I don't know if I can
live up to that standard.

You're just gonna have
to come have lunch with me

every single day.

Oh, my goodness, Will.


We have to do everything
possible to be appropriate

and professional now
that you are management.

(sighs deeply)

I am never
gonna have to worry

about getting funding
for another Glee Club costume

or paint brushes or tap shoes
for a kid who can't afford them.

Our son will be in the day care
that we set up in the gym.

And my beautiful wife

will be right
down the hall,

working tirelessly
to help kids

get into the best arts
colleges in the world.

Oh, my goodness.

I'm so proud
of you, Will.

It has been quite a journey
to get to this place.

And you've made it the whole way
without losing your integrity.

Except for those days
when you were rapping.


Can I be honest with
you about something?

I am scared to death.

Do I have the talent
to actually do the job?

Will, you're the most
talented man in the world.

Or at least in Ohio.

That's more like it.


I'm serious-- you don't have
anything to be scared about.

I'm not saying that
it's gonna be easy,

but I am saying now is
the time for you and I

to relax and have fun...


...and be in
love, right?

Because if we don't like
something now, we can...

you know, we can fix it.

So no more bad guys.

It is just you and me

and the power of
our imaginations.

I love you so much.

I love you.

Now go get
your son, Mr. Shue,

and I will see
you at school.

All right.

You see that, Danny?

Dreams really do come true.



Here he is!

(cheering, whooping)

Wow, um...

I have to say this is
the most exciting first day

of Glee Club
that we have ever had.

No offense to the alumni
who have been here

since the very first-ever
Glee Club meeting.


All right, please,
everyone, have a seat.

(clears throat)

So, Mr. Shue when are you
gonna start auditions?

KURT: Yeah, I think you're
gonna have trouble sticking

to your whole "whoever wants in,
gets in" rule.

Not true, Mr. Hummel.

The New Directions!
will be only one

of the glee clubs
at this school.

I'm bringing back
the Troubletones

and starting an all-boys version
called the Duly Noted.

And we're also gonna have
a junior varsity squad

for those who feel like they
need a little seasoning

before they're ready
for the big time.

So, wait, how are you gonna
teach all those glee clubs

and run a school?

I'm not.

I'm actually not coaching
any of them.

Not even the
New Directions?

Well, uh, I've interviewed a...

a candidate for that particular
job that I really like.

But until then,

I wanted to say farewell
to you all

with a song that I prepared
for this occasion.

My life changed...

because of all the magic
that we created in this room.

And if I've learned one thing,

it's the message in the lyrics
of this song.

This is for you guys.

(plays Crosby, Stills, Nash &
Young's "Teach Your Children")

? You ?

? Who are on the road ?

? Must have a code ?

? That you can live by ?

? And so ?

? Become yourself ?

? Because the past ?

? Is just a good-bye ?

? Teach ?

? Your children well ?

? Their father's hell ?

? Will slowly go by ?

? And feed ?

? Them on your dreams ?

? The one they picks ?

? The one you'll know by ?

? Don't you ever ask them why ?

? If they told you,
you would cry ?

? So just look at them
and sigh... ?

? And know they love you ?

? You ?

? Of tender years ?

? Can't know the fears ?

? That your elders grew by ?

? And so please help ?

? Them with your youth ?

? They seek the truth ?

? Before they can die ?

? Teach ?

? Your parents well ?

? Their children's hell ?

? Will slowly go by ?

? And feed ?

? Them on your dreams ?

? The one they picks ?

? The one you'll know by ?

? Don't you ever ask them why ?

? If they told you,
you would cry ?

? So just look at them
and sigh... ?

? And know they love you. ?

(applause, whooping)

(no voice)

Come on... a little...

Hey, what are
you doing?

Oh, uh, just
a little inventory.

We got to do it
before we sell all this stuff.

I mean, all these balls are
under one PSI, so...

they're basically,
uh, useless

unless we fill them up
to 12.5.

So listen, um,

considering that you're
going to be unemployed

somewhat soon,
I was wondering

if you'd given
any thought to maybe,

I don't know,
moving back to New York.

We have this spare room
for you-- it-it's perfect.

It's really small; it's more of,
like, a closet, really, but...

Uh, yeah.

No, we talked about this before.

I told you that
New York's not my speed.

It's too fast; it's too loud;

there's too many sports teams,

so I get confused on who I'm
supposed to root for.

We just root
for whichever one's winning.

Okay, that's something
Kurt would say.

That's what happens
when you get married.

Kurt and I are
really happy, all right?

That's good.
W-We're having
a very good life together.

We see everybody--
we see Rachel,

we see Artie, Brittany,
Santana, Kitty...

It's a lot of fun,
but I miss my best friend.

Dude, I miss you,
too, man, you know?

But this is
home, okay?

I need to be out in
the wide-open spaces.

I need to be able to just
go out on the weekends

and just shoot
stuff if I want to.

Look, I'm happy.

I am genuinely
happy here, okay?

This is where
I'm meant to be.

I just don't want you
to waste all of your talent.

I'm not-- I'm using all of
my talent in my new job.

All right.

Congratulations to all of you.

You have been selected
as the best of the best.

You are this year's
New Directions!

Now I would like to introduce
you all to your new teacher,

Mr. Sam Evans.

Wait, hold on, no.

Y-You're taking over
the glee club?



I could not be more proud
to pass the baton off to you.

Go get 'em, buddy.

All right, all right, all right.

So look,
I've been thinking a lot

about the first week's lesson.

This week, your assignment is...!


Let's see
where he goes with this.

Country and blues come
from the same roots.

The hardship
of a rural life.

Country uses little
personal stories

about breakups or
broken-down pickups

to express the deeper pains
of poverty and anxiety

that was and still is
such a normal part of life

in the American South.

Now, if we want to be great,

we need to be able
to sing about hurt and loss.

And even if we can't
relate to the specifics,

make them our own.

So who wants to start us off
with a country song?

Let's do "She Thinks
My Tractor's Sexy."

(others enthusiastically agree)



Well, looks like we're all
right where we belong.

I wouldn't have it
any other way.

Okay, wait.

Stop right there.

I just want you guys
to come in and listen,

because I have to get
through this without crying.

Okay, I have officially
been picked up

to be the opening act
for Beyonc?'s new world tour.

all talking excitedly)

Effective immediately.


You know,
ever since I've been back,

I've just been
walking these halls,

trying to remember
how invisible I used to feel.

And the funny thing is--

it's getting really hard
to remember that Mercedes.

Even when I got
the call earlier,

I didn't think, "Oh, this must
be some kind of mistake,"

or, you know,
"They must not mean me."

That's because of you guys.

Having friends like you
really did change me.

You made me know
that good things are possible.

It's not really... it's not
really that common to come by...

and I'll remember you guys
for it.

No, no, no, no,
do not come up here,

because that is not
even the hard part,

and if you come up here now,
I am gonna lose it,

and I am determined to walk out
of here with some class.

So, between

the tour and rehearsals and
me cutting an album right after,

I won't be seeing you guys
for a while.

Maybe even a-a long while.

You know, we'll keep in touch,
but it's not gonna be the same,

and I think that we've all had
enough group hugs

that can last us a lifetime.

So, I wanted to say good-bye
my way-- with a song.

And then, I want to walk
out of here...

like I'm gonna be seeing
everybody in Glee Club tomorrow,

and like it's not
really good-bye.

(Diana Ross & The Supremes'
"Someday We'll Be Together"

? Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh ?
? Someday ?

? Uh-huh ?
? We'll be together ?

? We'll be together,
yeah-ah-ah-ah ?

? You're far away ?

? From me, my love ?

? Ooh, baby ?

? But just as sure,

? As there are stars above ?

my, my sweet thing ?

? I made a big mistake, honey ?

? I-I-I... say,
I-I-I-I said good-bye ?

? Oh, oh, baby, ever ?

? Ever and ever
and ever and ever ?

? Just to kiss your sweet lips ?
? Hold you ever,
ever so tight ?

? Ooh, someday ?

? We'll be together! ?

(song ends)

Mercedes Jones has left
the building.

(Blaine clears his throat)

Oh, hello, Porcelain.

Mrs. Porcelain.

What are you doing, Sue?

Well, I just came in to, uh,

drink in the old office
one last time,

and to drop a hot one
in the middle of Will's desk.

But that seemed
childish, so,

I, uh, just peed everywhere.

Can you have a seat
for-for a second?

We wanted to talk to you.

As you probably
already know,

Blaine and I are leaving
for New York in a few days,

but before we leave,

we wanted to thank you for
getting us back together.

If it hadn't been for you,

we would still be apart,
and we would still be miserable.


thank you.

We really meant it:
thank you.



The first moment
I laid eyes on you,

I truly didn't understand
what I was looking at.

With your hippo broaches

and your knee-length sweaters,

standing there all sassy
with your arms crossed

and your hips
all... cocked out,

and your eyes rolled back
as if to say, "Oh, how droll."

But then, I got to know you.

And even though
you still constantly annoyed me,

I got to watch you go through
what you went through.

The whole
coming-out thing

with your dad, the death threats
from the bully

whom Blaine later dated.

I never knew

I had thoughts and feelings
about those things

until I watched you
go through them.

But you expanded
my mind.

You taught me things
about myself

that I would have never
discovered on my own.

And for that, I thank you.

Thank you.


I still don't really get you.

Um, I guess I just am not
a fan of your thing.

But, hey,

you're doing you...

and that's swell.

Thank you, Sue.

I feel the same way about you.

And now, if you'll excuse me,

there's somebody I need to see.

I was coming to see you!

I was coming
to see you, too!


Coach, I'm sorry that I said

those horrible things
to a horrible adult.

Oh, honey, I'm the
one who's sorry.

I've been treating you
like an unpaid intern,

when I should have been
treating you like a paid intern.

But honey, there's still one
last person I have to see.

All right.
All right, babe.

(piano plays intro to ABBA's
"The Winner Takes It All")

Hey, Sue.
You wanted to see me?

Uh, what's...
what's going on?

? I don't wanna talk ?

? About things
we've gone through ?

? Nothing more to say ?

? No more ace to play ?

? The winner takes it all ?

? The loser's standing small ?

? Beside the victory ?

? That's her destiny ?

? But tell me, does she kiss ?

? Like I used to kiss you? ?

? Does it feel the same ?

? When she calls your name? ?

Butt Chin...

(in harmony):
? The game is on again ?

? A lover or a friend ?

? A big thing or a small ?

? The winner takes it all ?

? I don't wanna talk ?

? If it makes you feel sad ?

? And I understand ?

? You've come to shake my hand ?

? The winner takes it all... ?

(holding note)

? The winner takes it all... ?

? The winner takes it all ?

? The winner
takes it all ?

? The winner takes it all ?

? The loser has to fall ?

? The winner takes ?

? It all! ?

(song ends)

Look, I know why you want...


Snipers stand down.

Pocahontas has landed.

Welcome back, everybody.

President Jeb Bush will win
the crucial battleground state

of Ohio, and reelection
to a second term

as President
of the United States.

With me now, before she heads
down to Times Square

to meet the president and
the crowd of tens of thousands,

the vice president,
Sue Sylvester.

Madam Vice President, thank you
so much for being here.

Well, thank you, Geraldo.

And I just spoke
to the president,

and he was curious
about where I was,

and I told him
that victory rally could wait

until I had a chat
with my old buddy Geraldo.

Now, Madam Vice President,

I have to ask you,

will you be running
for president in 2024?

You bet your sweet ass, Geraldo.

Well, folks, you heard it here
first-- the vice president.

Thank you very much.
Congratulations to you.

We'll be back with more
election night coverage
right after this.

I wanted to make a time capsule
of my time at McKinley.

I know it's stupid, but it'd
give me a reason to come back
every once in a while.

Oh, it's really,
really sweet.

I have programs

from our show choir

and... and oh, my Rocky
Horror Picture Show wig,

and oh, my Gaga
heels, and, uh...

and, oh, my favorite
photo of Finn, and oh,
prom queen crown...

and, oh, our picture from
prom, and the ring you
got me that Christmas.



Wh-Why are you crying and
laughing at the same time?

(laughs): Because you're
the only person I know

that would do
something like this.


You're the only one.

And-and that is why
I love you so much.

I love you, too.

? ?

MAN: Kids, we have
two very special guests here

at the Harvey Milk School
for Career Day

and Celebrity Tuesday

Kurt Hummel and Blaine Anderson
are coming,

because I think
they're just inspirational.

Recently, they performed
the first LGBTQ version

of Who's Afraid of Virginia
Woolf at Lincoln Center.

So please give a warm,

Harvey Milk
Elementary School welcome

to Kurt and Blaine!


We are so excited
to be here.

It is so cool to be
in a place where it's safe

and okay to be who you are.

It kind of reminds
us of our school.

Or at least one
room in our school.

And that was called
the choir room.

Now that's
because we had

an amazing teacher who
accepted us. Well, all of us.

BLAINE: Yeah. So we want to
encourage all of you guys to be

proud of who you are

and to find friends that accept
you and to not only dream,

but to dream big

and surround yourself
with people

who can help
those dreams come true.

(The Monkees'
"Daydream Believer" begins)

? Oh, I could hide
'neath the wings ?

? Of the bluebird as she sings ?

? The six o'clock alarm ?

? Would never ring ?

? But it rings and I rise ?

? Wipe the sleep
out of my eyes ?

? My shaving razor's cold ?

? And it stings ?

? Cheer up, Sleepy Jean ?

? Oh, what can it mean ?

? To a daydream believer ?

? And a homecoming queen ?

? You once thought of me ?

? As a white knight
on his steed ?

? Now you know how happy ?

? I can be ?

? Oh, and our good times
start and end ?

? Without dollar one to spend ?

? But how much, baby ?

? Do we really need ?

? Oh, oh, oh, oh! ?

? Cheer up, Sleepy Jean ?

? Oh, what can it mean ?

? To a daydream believer ?

? And a ?

? Homecoming queen ?

? Yeah! ?

? Cheer up, Sleepy Jean ?

? Oh, what can it mean ?

? To a daydream believer ?

? And a homecoming queen ?

? Yeah! ?


Hands in, everybody.
Hands in, hands in, hands in.


("This Time" begins)

? These walls ?

? And all these picture frames ?

? Every name ?

? They show ?

? These halls ?

? I've walked a thousand times ?

? Heartbreaks and valentines ?

? Friends of mine all know ?

? I look at everything I was ?

? And everything I ever loved ?

? And I can see
how much I've grown ?

? I'm not afraid ?

? Of moving on and letting go ?

? It's just so hard
to say good-bye ?

? To what I know ?

? This time no one's
gonna say good-bye

? I keep you
in this heart of mine ?

? This time that we had ?

? I will hold ?

? Forever... ?

? This old ?

? Familiar place is ?

? Where every face is ?

? Another part of me ?

? I played
a different game then ?

? They called me
a different name then ?

? I think of all
the things I did ?

? And how I wish I knew
what I know now ?

? I see how far I've come ?

? And what I got right ?

? When I was looking
for that spotlight ?

? I was looking for myself ?

? Got over what
I was afraid of ?

? I showed 'em all
that I was made of ?

? More than trophies
on a shelf ?

? For all the battles
that we lost ?

? Or might have won ?

? I never stopped believing ?

? In the words we sung ?

? We sung ?

? This time no one's
gonna say good-bye ?

? I keep you
in this heart of mine ?

? This time that we had ?

? I will hold ?

? Forever ?

? I'm looking out ?

? From the crossroads ?

? I don't know ?

? How far away I will roll ?

? I take a breath ?

? I close my eyes ?

? And your voice will carry me ?

? Home... ?

? I keep you
in this heart of mine ?

? This time I know ?

? It's never over ?

? No matter who or what I am ?

? I'll carry
where we all began ?

? This time that we had ?

? I will hold ?

? This time that we had ?

? I will hold... ?

? Forever ?

? Forever. ?

(siren wailing,
car horns honking)

We have amazing news.

Remember that movie that Artie
wrote for you but you were

too busy on your own world tour
so we gave it to me?

Well, it got into
Sundance Film Festival.

No, Tina, I told you
it got into Slamdance.

Also, big favor, Mercedes.

We want to use your songs
for the soundtrack.

Oh, my agent usually
handles that.

I am kidding. You can have
whatever song you like.

Guys, come on.
We're gonna be late.
Oh, yeah.

BLAINE: Oh, did you
hear about Sam?

He already has a new girlfriend.
Can you believe that?

Come on, I don't want
to miss a moment.

MERCEDES: Well, then, why does
he keep texting me?

Knock, knock.

Come in!

Is it time already?

It's time!
We're all here!

ARTIE: Hi! We're here!
Hey, Rachel!

Oh, no, don't
strain yourself.

Please. I've been sweating
my boobs off

at Tracy Anderson's
for the past nine months.

This baby can have my body now,

but then, after that,
Mama wants it back.

Well, we got you
some, uh, organic juice

from this special
place in Tribeca.

Thank you.
It's supposed to help
the baby's brain grow.

Okay, hold on. So, I've heard
this story from Kurt and Blaine,

but now, I want
to hear your side.

What in the heck made you say
"yes" to being their surrogate?

Obviously, there's a full-circle
story based on how I was raised,

but these guys have just
been so amazing.

And I figured, they've given up
so much of their lives

to make me happy.

The least I could do was
give them nine months of mine.


Oh, I love you guys so much.

You're gonna be
the most amazing dads.

I can't wait for that.
Oh, here's my husband!

Because I'm ready to get started

on a little co-production
of our own.

So romantic.

Come on, we're
gonna be late.

Wish us luck,
you guys.
Bye, your guys.

Break a leg.

You guys, we'll
be praying...

Bye. Have fun.

Fingers crossed.

So, as a former Tony winner,

I feel like I need to
give you some pointers

of what you're gonna say
when you get up there.

I'm not gonna win.
Yes, you are.
You are gonna win.

Really? Okay.

So, when you get up there,

you stand up straight,
you fake humility,

you cry only once when
you talk about your dads,

and you give all the credit

to your incredibly
talented director.

Well, he is pretty amazing
and handsome,

and has the best taste
in women.


Here we are.

You okay?
Whew. Yeah.

Ladies and gentlemen,

presenting the award for
Best Actress in a Musical...

(boys shouting)

...please welcome Broadway's
very own Andrew Rannells.

Bad dog!
(shouts playfully)


Oh, my gosh.

Oh. Here we go.

Maggie Smith in Miss Jean
Brodie's Second Prime.


Willow Smith in Cabaret.

(applause on TV)

Anne Hathaway

(applause and cheering)

And the Tony goes to...

(applause and cheering)

(all gasping)

(applause and cheering)

Oh, my God.


(indistinct chatter,
screaming and whooping)

? ?


(applause and cheering)

(audience cheering, whooping)


Thank you.

Oh, my gosh, I, um... I-I want

to thank my amazing husband
and director, Jessie.

And I want to thank my

two dads for all of those
singing and dancing lessons.

Okay, I want to thank...

Carmen Tibideaux at NYADA

for giving me a second chance
at my degree,

and to all of my friends
at McKinley High.

Um, but I want
to dedicate this award

to the person who's responsible

for getting me
on this stage tonight,

and that is Mr. Will Schuester.

Um, Mr. Shue always taught
to my strengths

and not my weaknesses,

and he cheered the loudest
when I soared.

And he picked me up when I was
in a million pieces.

He taught me the one great thing
that all teachers do,

and there are
so many of them out there.

And that is, being a part
of something special

does not make you special.

Something is special
because you are a part of it.

Mr. Shue, I love you so much.

And to all of the boys
and girls out there,

I just want to say quickly
before I walk off the stage,

that dreams really do come true,
so, thank you.

(applause and cheering)

Ladies and gentlemen, the Vice
President of the United States.

Becky? Becky?!

It's okay, honey.
He's clean.

You know, a great big fat person
once stood on this stage

and told a group of a dozen
or so nerds

in hideous disco outfits

that "glee,"
by its very definition,

is about opening yourself up
to joy.

Now, it's no secret
that for a long time,

I thought
that was a load of hooey.

As far as I can see,
the glee club is nothing more

than a place where a bunch
of cowardly losers

go to sing their troubles away,

and delude themselves
that they live in a world

that cares one iota
about their hopes and dreams,

totally divorced
from the harsh reality

that out in the the real world,

there's not much more
to hope for than disappointment,

heartbreak and failure.

You know what?

I was exactly right.

That's exactly
what Glee Club is.

But I was wrong
about the cowardly part.

What I finally realize,

now that I'm well
into my late thirties--

it takes

a lot of bravery to look
around you, and see the world,

not as it is,
but as it should be.

A world where the quarterback
becomes best friends

with the gay kid,

and the girl with the big nose
ends up on Broadway.

Glee is about imagining
a world like that,

and finding the courage
to open up your heart

and sing about it.

That's what Glee Club is.

And for the longest time,
I thought that was silly.

And now, I think it's just about
the bravest thing

that anyone could do.

I'm honored to be here
to rededicate this theater

the Finn Hudson Auditorium.

it is with your hard work,

in his memory,
that you managed

to accomplish something

McKinley High School
for the Performing Arts

has become
an overwhelming success,

a model for public schools
that showcase the arts,

now being replicated
all across the country.


Congratulations, Will Schuester.

You and your
little Glee Club

have accomplished something
quite remarkable.

And now,
without further ado,

it is my pleasure to introduce

the New Directions!
