episode 19  
It's mostly Rachel this time, and much shorter than normal. I blame Will Schuester.




"Take out a piece of paper and on that paper I want you to
write down your biggest dream. A dream that means so
much you're afraid to admit it even to yourself."




Jesse: Hi.
Rachel: Hi. How was your spring break?
Jesse: Good. It's good to be back. What were you just rehearsing?
Rachel: A guy came to Glee Club to talk to us about dreams. Luckily, I've known mine since I was four: I'm gonna play three parts on Broadway, Evita, Funny Girl and Laurie in Oklahoma. I was just practicing her dream ballet with Curly, it's what I do when I'm feeling a little stressed.
Jesse: That's not a dream. A dream is something that fills up the emptiness inside. The one thing that you know if it came true all the hurt would go away. You singing "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" in front of a sold out crowd isn't a fantasy, it's an inevitability.
Rachel: I thought you'd never come back.
Jesse: And miss all your drama? Never.



Jesse: So what is it? Your dream?
Rachel: I don't know.
Jesse: Well then go inside, find it, and ask it what it's gotta take.
Rachel: Why are you pushing this?
Jesse: Because you're my girlfriend and I wanna know all your secrets. When you lie awake at night, what's missing?
Rachel: My mom.
Jesse: Your mom? You mean like you wanna meet her?
Rachel: I would just like to know who she is. I don't really need to meet her or anything, but maybe just find out her name or something about her. It's silly, it's not like it's going to happen or anything.
Jesse: Why?
Rachel: Well just because my dads never told my anything and I didn't wanna ask them anything 'cause I didn't wanna hurt their feelings.
Jesse: So let's check it out without them knowing. Do you know why I came back to school here? To win another national title and make all your dreams come true. If this is one of them then I'm not gonna stop until it happens.



Rachel: I found her.
Jesse: Your mother? Where?
Rachel: In the library. I've been researching her all morning and as I suspected my intuition has been proven correct. My mother is Broadway legend Patty LuPone.



"I've always had a deep connection to Ms. LuPone, her choice of roles and songs. I decided to do a little math to see if being my mother was even possible. I was born December 18, 1994. Nineteen-ninety-four was a big year for mother, she was a sensation in Pal Joey, but that was in New York. I was born in Ohio you say, well, mother took many breaks from the show to tour with Mandy Patinkin. That April found them at the EJ Thomas Hall in Akron, Ohio for a standing room performance, 9 months before I was born."



Jesse: Are you saying your fathers impregnated Patty LuPone in the Mariott in Akron. Was Mandy Patinkin in on this?
Rachel: All you have to do is look at pictures of her in her performance in Master Class in 1996. Look at the pain in her eyes and the hurt she's feeling from giving up her obviously talented little girl.
Jesse: One question: what was in it for her?
Rachel: Money, a sense of charity for those in need. I guess you're right. Do you wanna hear my research that proves that my mother is Bernadette Peters?
Jesse: Why are you so afraid about finding the truth?
Rachel: I don't know, I guess I just don't want to think that my mother's some teenage trollop like Quinn or worse, some skanky girl who would do anything for money including giving me up.
Jesse: Why does it have to be one of those choices? Maybe she had a really good reason for doing what she did. We need to do a real investigation, like CSI real. Do you have any baby stuff in your house? Something that might give us a clue?
Rachel: My fathers kept every piece of paper related to my life in files and cabinets in our basement. It's sort of a little Rachel Berry museum.
Jesse: Perfect. We'll start there.



Jesse: What took you so long? Your dads will be home soon.
Rachel: There was so much stuff in the basement. It's like a shrine, it's creepy and flattering at the same time. These boxes had the earliest dates on them. My baby teeth.
Jesse: Look.
Rachel: Is that me?
Jesse: Looks like you. I think you're in fifth position.
Rachel: Makes sense. My dad said they used to play Vivaldi into my mother's belly. I'll put that there. My first singing competition, I came in first place.
Jesse: You were 8 months old.
Rachel: I was very musically verbal. Cute little baby shoes.
Jesse: What's this? From mother to daughter.
Rachel: Oh my God she wrote this. She held this in her hand. What are you doing?
Jesse: Playing that tape.
Rachel: No!
Jesse: Why not? She wanted you to hear this.
Rachel: I'm not ready, look, this is all happening too fast. What if she's singing on the tape? What if she's terrible? Or worse, what if she's better than me?
Jesse: I can't believe we're so close to your dream coming true and you're running away from it.
Rachel: No, it's my choice, it's my life and I'm not ready. Jesse I think that you should go.



We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine




"I've got good news: I siphoned off funds from the Cheerios and I took a little shopping spree through the Jazz Hands catalog. You know why? 'Cause the arts matter and I got custom made New Directions jean jackets and some rad tear-away dance wear. Hello. And every piece of sheet music from every Broadway show for the last 50 years. Everything a show choir needs to become champions."



Rachel: Jesse what are you doing here?
Jesse: I said that I was going to make your dreams come true.
Rachel: No! I'm not ready!
Jesse: Yes, you are.
Shelby: Hi baby, it's your mom. I think this pretty much says it all.

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving



And still I dream she'll come to me
That we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather




I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed




Mr. Schue: I have an announcement to make: You've all be reprieved, Bryan Ryan isn't cutting Glee.
Puck: Did he die?
Mr. Schue: No, he didn't die. He's going to be distracted for a couple months while he makes his star turn in Les Mis, he got the lead role.
Quinn: But I thought you got the lead.
Mr. Schue: I resigned, it was the price for keeping the club.



Sweet dreams 'til sun beams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you.
But in your dreams, whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me.

guuurl ily2. motion caps are crazy hard but BRITTANY WAS WEARING JEAN SHORTS so i tried my best to get some good ones.

unf unf unf that gif, i'm waiting to see if [livejournal.com profile] j_in_the_gifs puts up any dancing brittany icons today/tomorrow then i will at last have a britbrit icon. ♥
[identity profile] noxinsox.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 09:56 pm (UTC)

i just.. she kills me. BAWL.
Emma[identity profile] falsealarm715.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 09:59 pm (UTC)
at first i was like "ooohhh brit i like your top" and then i was like "AJSDNIURAFBHDAJKD JEAN SHORTSSSSSSSSS"

i think i've said this before but they need to have brittany wear normal clothes more often. i'm pretty sure this outfit is prolly what HeMo wore on to set and they were like "GURL YOU FIERCE" and let her dance in it.
[identity profile] noxinsox.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 10:14 pm (UTC)
i wish. and i mean look how much better she looks with her hair down :') seriously, she owns hairography.

i must have watched safety dance at least 50 times and just followed her everywhere. she is gonna be so fierce in the dance scenes next week, so glad the tour starts back up again tomorrow to tide me overrr.
Emma[identity profile] falsealarm715.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 10:18 pm (UTC)
that cheerios ponytail bugs the hell out of me, her hair is far too gorgeous to be put up all the time, and i love the cute little braid they put in her hair when it's down too.

she's going to be amazing next week, they better put her in every number lol. i can't wait to see her with that lobster on her head. omg the tour, i'm so excited to see more footage, her little segue with kurt was THE BEST EVER. love her so much. ♥
[identity profile] noxinsox.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 10:23 pm (UTC)
i know. :') i don't think my heart can handle it, seriously.

if we dont get good quzlity gifs of her in jump and dancing with myself, by the end of this tour imma cry.

AND OMG. LOOK WHAT I JUST FOUND IN A NEW INTERVIEW WITH HEATHER. ITS HAPPENING.

Q. The “Glee” cast was spotted hanging out together on Mill Ave, so you guys are obviously close. Are there any offscreen “power couples?”

A. “Power couples” Ha. I think Naya and I are a pretty powerful duo on and off set to be honest. She’s my best friend and I think we both have such an amazing respect for one another. It’s inspiring.
Emma[identity profile] falsealarm715.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 10:28 pm (UTC)
ffffffff go on heather, inspiring respect for each other's bodies, i hear you gurl.
[identity profile] noxinsox.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 10:36 pm (UTC)
so true. and yeah thats right how she includes on and OFF set. brb shipping hard core.

Emma[identity profile] falsealarm715.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 10:38 pm (UTC)
i'd so try and whip an animated one up but i'm not too good at gifs, especially icons. i need to find a new program that'll let me gif from avi files.

rachel and shelby's duet, i definitely teared up, it was beautiful.

Santana was in the episode?

Shame on them for not showing her more. I mean, Matt, Kurt, Tina, Mike, Brittany and Mercedes were all doing the Safety Dance with Artie, why no Santana? She and BritBrit did look pretty in Dream A Little Dream though.
Emma[identity profile] falsealarm715.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 10:02 pm (UTC)
yea santana snuck her way into some scenes. i was looking all over for her in the safety dance scene, i'm kind of mad they didn't put her in there.

she and brit looked great in dream a little dream but i couldn't get any proper caps of them ... at least that's my excuse, i was capping at like 3am yesterday lol.

I loved this line:

" That's not a dream. A dream is something that fills up the emptiness inside. The one thing that you know if it came true all the hurt would go away. You singing "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" in front of a sold out crowd isn't a fantasy, it's an inevitability. "

That was adorable! But I hate how he's lying to her!
Emma: my wife rachel berry[identity profile] falsealarm715.livejournal.com on May 19th, 2010 10:09 pm (UTC)
oh that line was great, made me kind of like jesse a little bit. i really do hate that he's lying to her, but i loved when he told shelby he's actually starting to like her.
