OMG! It rained a lot here at the beginning of the week and I was hard pressed to get out and walk because it was windy, cold, and pouring so I was hitting the mall at night to walk laps. The downside was that by the time I got home from work, I had to miss Glee to get my exercise in.

I JUST watched this week's episode and cried through nearly the entire episode! It was incredible... I too loved seeing that softer side of Sue and Burt really is such a great Dad that I hope he pulls through this. Finn's Grilled Cheesus provided just enough humour to keep me from being a complete mess.

Can't wait for next week's episode!

I loved Emma hearing Finn's "confession!"

Yes, I totally lost it with Kurt's song and the flashback. But I think the most powerful moment for me was when Sue's sister said, "Who said I needed to be fixed?" I have a disabled child myself -- it was a gut-punch for me.

I was doing so well... trying to hold it in... and then when Kurt started singing "I Want to Hold Your Hand," and they showed flashbacks of Little Kurt and Burt, I lost it. My face was soaked by the end of the show-- even Finn with his loss of Grilled Cheesus hit a spot for me and my family.

No, I didn't cry (amazingly enough), but it was definitely a heart-touching episode. I am still haunted by Kurt's face, his entire demeanor, his "I Want To Hold Your Hand"--his pain was palpable..and he was so isolated with it.

They needed the comic relief of Finn prayingn to Grilled Cheesus, or else we'd all need mopping up.

I felt so sad that people who call themselvles Christians bring such a bad name to God when they act in unloving ways. That to me was the heart of Kurt's refusal to believe in God, because those who called themselves God's children made life for him and other gay people so miserable. I wanted to scream at the TV (so he could hear me) that behavior wasn't of God, but man misunderstanding God.

And I loved seeing the softer side of Sue. She is so tender when she's with her sister. And when her sister (who is a fabulous actress as well) asked "Do you want me to pray for you?", I did almost lose it.

I'm glad I DVR'ed that episode. I'll rewatch it for sure.

I bawled for so many reasons the whole way through it. Sue and her sister, Kirk and his song, just the whole way they handled it. Beautifully done. Amazingly just, still floored cant speak kinda beautiful.

I love Kirks dad, I have said that like a zillion times, and when he went down I screamed and just started bawling. That character, is just such a beautiful character of a Father, and acceptance.

To have them deal with such a tough subject, and do it so well. Just knocked my socks off. Making my Mom watch it later with me, the show isn't her taste, but I think this episode she -needs- to see. It's one of those that will talk to you, no matter where you are, or what your 'beliefs' are. In just how precious the time we have, is.

They did a phenomenal job matching them. Kurt is probably my favorite of the kids. I just wanted to hug him so badly.

It was amazing. I want to download Kurt's I wanna hold your hand RIGHT NOW! And yes the youg Kurt was pretty amazing- I wonder if it is a relative. I think this may be in my top three favourite episodes ever.

I started tearing up, but then my dh came in talking and ruined the moment. I DVRd the show so maybe I'll watch it again.

Did anyone else flat-out sob their way through this episode?
