[as the school bell rings, the five Glee Club members quietly enter the library of William McKinley High School (wearing 80s balloon pants and carrying a boombox) as Mercedes looks around at all of the students in the library]
MERCEDES: Looks like we got a full house, y'all ...
[Kurt peeks through the shelves at the elderly female librarian handing a student a book]
ARTIE: I'm kind of getting cold feet here.
[Brittany looks down at his wheelchair]
BRITTANY: Can you even feel your feet?
[the librarian looks over in their direction and shushes them]
ANCIENT LIBRARIAN: Shh!
[Kurt huddles everyone together]
KURT: [whispers] Team, listen up ... If we pull this off, we will be legends at this school. We'll rocket up the Glist, we will be top-five, easy!
[he turns to Artie, who is holding the boombox]
KURT: [whispers] Artie, pump up the jam. It's about to go down ...
[Brittany and Tina climb a nearby table (as the librarian shoots them an accusing look), then Artie turns on the music and they perform MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" ... once their performance is over, the librarian gets up out of her chair with an angry look on her face and approaches them]
ARTIE: [whispers] Here it comes ...
[she stops, and then talks to them in a sweet voice]
ANCIENT LIBRARIAN: That was very cute! I'm gonna talk to my pastor, and see if I can't get you kids to perform that for our Sunday service!
[she shuffles away, as the Glee Club members (who were expecting to go down as infamous outlaws) look at each other with shock and confusion]
Bad Reputation (#1.17)
Mr. Schuester starts an investigation when a salacious list about members of the glee club circulates the halls of McKinley High. Meanwhile, Sue is mortified when a video of her performing the Olivia Newton-John classic "Physical" surfaces.
Kevin McHale ... Artie Abrams
Amber Riley ... Mercedes Jones
Jenna Ushkowitz ... Tina Cohen-Chang
Heather Morris ... Brittany Pierce
Jean Sincere ... Ancient Librarian
"Bad Reputation" is the seventeenth episode of Glee, which aired May 4, 2010.
A list gets out ranking the glee club on their social status and hotness (the "Glist"). Brittany is ranked fourth which she can't understand why since she's made out with everyone at school. She teams up with Mercedes, Artie, Tina and Kurt (as they didn't even make it on the Glist) and hatch a plan to get them higher on the list. They perform a rendition of "U Can't Touch This" in the school library to cause a disruption in the hopes of earning a bad reputation. Their plan backfires, however, as the librarian says she loved their rendition of the song and asks them to perform at her church's Sunday service.
