Glee - Grilled Cheesus

After watching Glee Season 2 Episode 3- Grilled Cheesus, it made me think to go on a diet and take some ephedrine diet pills.

Though the 3rd episode of Glee focuses on religion and what God means to the members of the glee club, there is also a small scene where Kurt's father had a heart attack. That triggers me to go on a diet. I want to get fit not only to look good but also to be healthy.

Anyway, here's the plot of Glee Season 2 Episode 3- Grilled Cheesus

When glee club co-captain Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith) believes he has found the face of Jesus in a grilled cheese sandwich, he asks for three prayers to be granted: for the school football team win to a game, for his girlfriend Rachel (Lea Michele) to let him touch her breasts, and for him to be reinstated as quarterback. When his first prayer comes true, he asks the glee club to join him in honouring Jesus through song.

Club member Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) is devastated when his father Burt (Mike O'Malley) suffers a heart attack. His best friend Mercedes (Amber Riley) sings Whitney Houston's "I Look to You" to him, hoping he will find strength in faith, however Kurt reveals he is an atheist. Cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch), also an atheist, takes umbrage at the glee club singing religious songs and has Kurt make a formal complaint. When confronted by guidance counsellor Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays), Sue admits that as a child, she prayed that God would cure her sister Jean (Robin Trocki), who has Down syndrome. Her prayers went unanswered, leading her to turn against religion.

Mercedes, Rachel and Quinn (Dianna Agron) pray for Burt, with Rachel singing "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" from Yentl at his bedside. Kurt is resistant, and at glee club rehearsal sings The Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand", stating that his faith takes the form of love for his father. He accepts an invitation from Mercedes to attend her church, where the choir sing "Bridge over Troubled Water" and Mercedes asks the congregation to pray for Burt.

Finn's remaining prayers also come true, however his reinstatement as quarterback occurs when his replacement Sam Evans (Chord Overstreet) is injured during a game, dislocating his shoulder. Finn feels responsible and confesses his guilt to Emma, who tells him it is unlikely God is communicating with him through a grilled cheese sandwich. A despondent Finn doubts his new-found faith, singing R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion".

At Burt's bedside, Kurt tells his still unconscious father that while he is an atheist, he feels he should have accepted his friends' prayers. As Kurt cries, Burt begins to regain consciousness and is able to squeeze his son's hand. Meanwhile, Sue visits Jean in her residential home and discusses God with her sister. Jean asks Sue if she may pray for her, and Sue accepts. Later, the glee club come together to sing Joan Osborne's "One of Us". Sue watches the performance, but tells Will she will not report him for allowing a religious song. At home, Finn, instead of continuing to use the sandwich as his altar, eats the remainder with resolve.
