Will comes into the office and he wants to introduce him to Bryan Ryan. Bryan tells the principal that they have met and Will thinks about how he ruined his life. He thinks to himself that he got every girl Will liked and even got all of the best solos. They flash a scene where they are singing a song and Bryan does a magic trick turning a flame into a bouquet of flowers and gives it to the girl he was singing with. Bryan asks him if the cat has his talent and everyone laughs. Will snaps out of it and Bryan is now officially a part of the school board. He tells him that he is doing an audit of the school's budget and they may need to cut some art programs. The principal tells him that it is a formality and Bryan tells him that it is more than that because they will probably cut the Glee club. Will asks him why since glee club was his life. Bryan tells him that it was his life and he got bigger than he ever thought he would and begins to brag about all of the great things he did. He tells him that he even got a gig on a cruise ship and that dried up. When that dried up--nine years later he ended up on a urine soaked mattress in the crack district of Lima. That is when he woke up and he was introduced to Jesus--Honduran social worker. He tells him that thanks to him he got cleaned up, met the love of his life, and now own a used Hummer dealership. Will makes a face and Bryan tells him not to because global warming is a theory. He tells him that four nights a week he runs a show choir conversion group. It flashes to a group where a woman introduces herself as Brenda and she tells them she hasn't sung a show tune in over 40 days. She tells them that she started huffing glue. The next guy says that whenever something bad happens one should put on a show. He tells them that putting on a show about one's father's prostate cancer can hurt even more and Bryan says that Show Choir kills. ..
