    I am not emotionally involved in the show at all, but am deeply involved in many of the issues that the show discusses.

    When Finn took Kurt's hand and they danced together in joy and celebration I could only say to myself that "this is how it's supposed to be". When we feel inspired to dance with someone we should dance without looking over our shoulder to see who might be judging us for expressing genuine feelings in a manner that someone else finds uncomfortable.

    And when Kurt walked over and he and his Dad danced I lost it- men should be allowed to love their fathers and sons and brothers and friends and demonstrate that love however they see fit.
    Dancing and celebrating life and being publicly and physically joyous and loving is in short supply in many circles- specifically fathers and sons and brothers.
    Seeing it displayed like this simply felt good and made me feel hopeful.

    Did not know that. Glad that there were no bats involved here.

    He was 2nd string in "Yes, Dear" for 122 episodes. I had no idea it was on for that long.

    That's an emotional issue for you?

    Well, to each their own. I did enjoy the scene but I didnt think "Oh gosh, I can finally dance with my dad!" Neither he nor I have ever wanted to dance with each other. Talk about our cars, yes. Work on computers, yes. Joke about women, yes. Dance? No.

    You see, it isn't that most men don't have ways of expressing affection for each other. Its that we'd rather do it in ways that don't involve rhythmic touching.

    But if my dad had a gay son I suppose it would be nice if he could dance with him without scorn from the guests?

    I won't be in tears when I see a woman changing my oil. [I have seen it.]

    I was impressed with Sue as the principal in the episode. Except for the Kurt name calling she was quite competent and stood up for him. Sure, typical evil Sue is fun, but I do like her good side. ;)

    She was feeling kinder gentler this episode because she made the connection that Mom/bully begat Sue/bully.
    She'll be back to her old self in no time.

    Watching that video again, I was struck by the thought of how funny it would have been if, after those two first ushers threw the programs in the air and danced down the aisle, the rest of the bridal party just walked in traditionally, completely punking the first two guys and making them look like idiots. :D

    I wouldn't call him 2nd string there. It was a story of 2 families, and all four adult actors had fairly equal air time. He does have more dimension as Kurt's dad

    I mostly remember Mike O'Malley growing up watching GUTS on Nickelodeon. He was the host of that game show.

    I'm just catching up on some backlogged shows, and just watched this one.

    I can't believe how much my opinion of this episode veers from everyone else's here. I HATED this episode. The whole thing with Kurt at the wedding was so over the top and out of place that I was laughing. The Glee kids turning a wedding, which should be about the bride and groom into a celebration of Kurt was incredibly annoying. The creator of the show haver written one of the more annoying and self-centered characters on TV (Kurt), and are now seemingly wanting us to canonize him.

    I thought this was by far the worst episode of the whole series.

    I thought the wedding tribute to Kurt was over the top too, but this is Glee - over the top is what it does. I did enjoy the processional song (and yes, it was almost too reminiscent of the JK Wedding Dance) quite a bit however, and I also liked Sue's rare moments of empathy as principal with Kurt.

    The Sue wedding was ridiculous - I pretty much FF'd every scene with her and Carol Burnett after the opening scene between them.

    Nobody mentions Carole Burnett's face? My goodness, I was mesmorized by how strange it looked. Like some sort of shapeshifter took over Carole Burnett's identity and couldn't quite control the face. Remember Arnold's "Mask" on his first trip to Mars in Total Recall?

    My first thought on seeing Carol Burnett was wondering if she had had a stroke.
    The relationship between Curt and his dad is probably one of the best I have ever seen on TV.
