Sue and Will are having a pretty hardcore argument in the auditorium. It seems they have been coming to blows since they had to talk to the principal about how their progress is going with their joint effort to run Glee. As usual, Will is being the nice guy and trying to use his charm to get over on the principal and unfortunately Sue is being manipulative and making them go against one another. Her intention is to make them both quit. Sue even thinks that she is handling it with elegance and grace with her wacky thought process...

Episode Quotes
Sue: Sometimes people ask me, "Sue, how come you're so sensitive to minorities?" Well, I'll tell you why: because I know firsthand how hard it is to struggle as a minority in America today. I'm 1/16th Comanche Indian. In fact, I like minorities so much, I'm thinking of moving to California to become one.

Sue: I don't trust a man with curly hair. I can't help but picture little birds laying sulfurous eggs in there, and it disgusts me.

Sue: Santana! Wheels! Gay kid! Asian! Other Asian! Aretha! And Shaft! (to Will) See, Will? I don't want to participate in any group that ignores the needs of minority students.
