(The graduating seniors are all coming to school 2 weeks before they graduate. For some odd reason, they happen to float down the halls, each giving a voiceover
(voiceover): Ah, senior year. It's coming to an end. It feels like just yesterday that I was thrown into a tempat sampah atau being slushied oleh a football jock--who shall remain anonymous. I feel like people are looking up to me rather than making me feel worthless. Now I can behave like the best me I can. Santana
(voiceover): I really don't understand all of this at all. I'm literally the hottest piece of action at this school, and I can be as talented as Other Asian and Pippy Longstocking put together. So why am I going to the universitas of Louiseville? How come I'm not in New York atau Los Angeles? I was born to be a star. Mercedes
(voiceover): I don't wanna do this dumb sh*t. Mike
(voiceover): I'm so glad I got into Chicago. I want to thank-- Finn
(voiceover): Wow, to think I was clueless about what to do when this point in high school hit. I'm the bintang quarterback of the school, living with my gay brother/friend, and...well, about to marry a Broadway dwarf. Nice. (Over to the side). Furt's gonna be ruined
(voiceover): Okay...where do I start...? Oh yeah. Well, this school tahun was especially rough for me. I had a baby sophomore year. I cheated on a couple of guys. I lost prom queen twice. I cut most of my hair off. I went through a skank phase and smoked for the first time. I got overly obsessive with getting Beth back. I wanted good, rough sex with Puck to get another baby. And after all of that and turning to God for prayer, I end up in a wheelchair. Ugh...damn, that's a lot. Puck
(voiceover): Kinda hard to believe people would be easy on me like this. I mean, I skipped class so many times--more than the amount of girls I made out with, in fact. Now I'm ready to pass this difficult test and get out of Lima for good. Rachel
(voiceover): I've been waiting for this moment since I first saw Barbra Streisand for the first time. There's a lot of joy--and pressure--when it comes to me moving to New York with Kurt and Finn, and leaving all of my friends behind. It's gonna be tough. But I have something to look up to now. I can go to the city of my dreams, accomplish my goal of being a Broadway singer, and live with my fiance for the rest of my life. I mean, how much happier can I be? I have it all now. I won prom queen unexpectedly, I'm with Finn--I basically lived my high school tahun perfectly-- Santana
(voiceover, annoyed): Are anda done yet? Quinn
(voiceover): You're taking up too much time. Mike
(voiceover): I didn't get a chance to finish-- Rachel
(voiceover): Will all of anda calm down and let me speak?! God...
(Cory Monteith gets out of character as Finn Hudson, and calls to Lea Michele on set
(voiceover): Actually, Lea, Ian says it's time to membungkus, bungkus it up. Lea

(nodding): Yeah...this is really tough. Kurt
: Easy for anda to say. You're not the one waiting on the letter of a lifetime. Blaine
: But I am the one who's worried about being alone selanjutnya year. Kurt
: Have anda listened to me at all this time? Blaine
: Not really. I kinda had some ear problems. They're fixed now, but...I don't know what to think, really. Kurt
: I told you--15 times in person, 12 times in text, and 14 times in email--I'm never saying goodbye to you. Blaine
: You'll still remember me, right? Kurt
: Of course I will. Blaine
: So are we still on for that tanggal after graduation? Kurt
: Oh...I was invited to an after party at Quinn's place, actually.
(to the side): He ain't gonna remember me
(Santana and her mother, Maribel Lopez invited Brittany to go to Breadstix and have a meal all together for the first time

(embarrassed): Mom. Maribel
: Sorry, Santana. I'm just happy anda found someone, especially Brittany, to be in your life. Santana
: Thank anda so much. But there's a problem, though. I don't want to go to Kentucky. I want to go to New York. Maribel
: Whatever anda put your mind to, I'm okay with it. Just as long as anda make it to college. Santana
: Thank you. Maribel
): And where are anda applying? Brittany
: Purdue. Maribel
: The university? Oh, that's great. Brittany
: No, the chicken factory.
: Um...sweetheart, that's not... Brittany
: I know. All of the other colleges won't take me because my grades are low. Santana
: Why are anda just now telling me this? Brittany
: It's not all bad. At least I get to repeat senior year. Santana
(hesitant): Well...looks like I have to stay here then. Maribel
: Why? Santana
: My girlfriend needs me, mom. I can't let her fall like this. I need to help her. Brittany
: You'd do that for me? Santana
: Yes. Brittany
: But you're not flunking, though. So how are anda going to apply back into McKinley?
: Looks like someone needs to fix anda a little more.
