Episode description from the DVD:

When handicapped access becomes a problem for wheelchair bound Artie, the group rallies around him, leading to their most unusual musical number yet. Meanwhile, Puck gets closer to Quinn, which doesn't sit well with boyfriend, Finn.

I miss sweet supportive Finn. They have really ruined his character more than anyone else on the show.

Jewfro is so gross. I just have to say it. I love Sue's whole comment to him about Quinn.

Will really is a sad man. He is really trying to recapture his high school glory days. He is always trying to make his memories be the memories that the kids. "Disco won us sectionals, so we're doing sections." "The bus ride was the best part when I was in glee, we need the handicapped bus so Artie can go." "We earned money for our silk cumberbands by having a bake sale, so we're having a bake sale to get the handicapped bus."

You know, I have to say that I'm amazed that Kevin does so well at not moving his legs in the wheelchair. When I hear music, I can't help but tap my feet. He did a nice job on "Dancing With Myself."

I love Kurt's confidence when he says he wants to try out for the "Defying Gravity" solo. And he stays pouty the rest of the scene.

That pasta dish that Rachel took in the face when she was in the wheelchair looked really nasty. Much worse than a slushie to the face.

Awww. This is one of my favorite Kurt/Burt scenes. Burt still has his edge, but he is ready to stand up for his kid.

Rachel is so full of herself. She always thinks she's the best at everyone. I cracks me up that Kurt has his legs crossed even in the wheelchair. And ugh his outfit when he addresses the Glee club is very Blaineish. Shorter pants and no socks with his shoes. Ryan definitely has an ankle fetish.

The school is so bad. One handicapped ramp? Refusual to get the handicapped bus? Artie should sue the school and Figgy.

The cheerios audtions were pretty funny. I didn't realizeit was Kurt at first because he looks so different in the tryouts for cheerios. It's funny that Kurt and Mercedes tried out, and wound up getting in later.

The Finn and Puch argument is pretty bad when you know that Puck is really the daddy. It's easy to feel bad for Finn because he had such a good heart at that point.

I miss Artie and Tina as a couple. They were cute together.

Burt definitely gave Kurt some mixed messages in the talk about the anonymous caller and the high F. He says no one pushes the Hummels around but he doesn't want Kurt to get hurt.

Rewatching the episodes, I really see the subtle facial expressions that Cory makes. He's not nearly as good as Chris is at it, but he des a great job.

You know, Will says he doesn't want to take a cupcake from a paying customer. Maybe he should have been supportive since he was forcing them to have the bake sail and bought one himself. Hell, he should have bought five.

I love the way they split the lines on Defying Gravity. I love that they gave Kurt some great lines that he could direct at Will and Rachel. I love the Kurt only version of this song. I listen to it all the time.

It was great that Artie wanted to give the money to get another ramp in the school rather than the handicapped bus.

I love how sweet Sue is with her sister. It really humanized Sue, and showed that she is a good person deep down.

Another great Kurt/Burt scene. And this is our first glimpse that Kurt wants out of Lima. This scene shows a lot about Kurt's values. This one scene defines Kurt more than any other scene in the entire show. Someone need to make RIB rewatch it so they know exactly who Kurt is.

Proud Mary was a fun number, but I hate that they had Artie singing so low in the beginning. He just doesn't sound good at all. It cracks me up when Finn grabbed the back of Brit's chair. I would love to see some bloopers from when they were filming that number. I bet there are some fun ones.

Since when has Kurt told EVERYONE that he's gay. Despite what the VO says I was under the impression he had directly told only to Mercedes and to his dad.

Kurts realisation that Will won't even consider him to sing Defying Gravity is just heart breaking. I hate Will, he sees nothing what his students really want. For instance I really don't think he ever listens to Mercedes either. He gets an idea to his head and sticks to it. This time it's Artie and the bus with a wheelchair ramp and nothing else.

Arties song is really good and poingnant and he's for first time showing his funny bone at the class room scene.

I've been fortunate enough that I have not needed a wheel chair, but I have tried riding one and that is hard work, just simple going ahead straight on a flat surface was so hard. That's why everyone should try it at least once.

Pucks and Quinns food fight was so awkward.

First time we see the Big Papa Bear Burt showing his true colours and defending his son. ”Full of ennui.” that is definately Kurt's slogan in Glee. I like the fact that Burt is not afraid to say things out loud although his horror that he might one day have to listen to relationship troubles was funny.

Kurt is quite mean in his statement that he is more popular than Rachel, perhaps true though.

I have somewhat a problem with Quinn's role in this whole pregnancy debacle: she's played out as such a feeble woman and dependent on a pea brain like Finn. It's almost like these stories you hear about teenagers that deny the fact that they are pregnant until the day they get taken to the hospital to give birth. It's like her brain has been shut down for this stupid storyline.

Cheerios tryouts were fun. I think at least the guy doing the spilt would definately have a chance physically at being a Cheerio. I wonder how many times Chris released that patong to the wrong direction?

Hummel men together give me all the emotions at the same time. Burt trying but being afraid and Kurt doing excatly the same thing for all the different reasons. I found the first scene in the garage very intense only pointed out by the tightly cropped shots of just facial expressions. I read months ago that Mike O'Malleys performance in some other things he has done were not so revered but I find that hard to believe since he is such a good Burt Hummel.

I find it irritating that violence and drugs are such ignored element in this episode. Finn and Puck having a fist fight in the middle of the hall way and Puck knowing all about weed and how to use it. It's one of the things Glee has not yet addressed: drug use.

Defying Gravity is a dual song for me: I really do not like it but can't help listening to it because it's such a meaningful song. I would really like to remember what I thought about Kurt botcing the note when I first saw it. Did I get that it was a deliberate failure or not?

What I do remember is the Sues sister storyline was a shocker but a pleasant suprise. I first thought she might go and see her mother/father but then it was her sister...it gave her that little bit humanity in order to actually keep her mean and appauling without it becoming too much.

Because of the recent spoilers from comic-con makes the second Hummel scene so painfull and teary to watch. Kurt really wants to get out of Lima and I hate how the writers have destroyed an intelligent and determinated character in these past ten-twenty episodes. In Wheels Kurt was so aware of himself and his self worth but now he's always someones accessorie or enhancer. I want some of our old Kurt back damn it!
