'Glee' Salutes 'Fat Bottomed Girls,' St. Valentine With 'Silly Love Songs'
Last night's (Feb. 8) Valentines Day episode of "Glee" had the McKinley High couples making up, making out and singing "silly love songs" to one another.
Finn sets up a kissing booth in an attempt to steal another smooch from Quinn, and tension mounts between Kurt and his mega-crush Blaine. This lovey-dovey episode proved that a good love song stands the test of time, as evidenced by Tina's emotional performance of Frank Sinatra's "My Funny Valentine."
Puck, the Casanova of McKinley, has his eye on Lauren. He tries to woo her with a rousing rendition of Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls." Alhough the song is fun and Puck's bedroom eyes give us butterflies, the song's lyrics just make Lauren "feel like crap."

Mike Chang and Artie get their groove on, serenading Tina and Brittany with a silky smooth version of Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)." Meanwhile, Blaine convinces The Warblers to perform at the Gap to impress a boy he likes. Kurt goes along on the "Gap Attack," trying half-heartedly to hide his feelings for Blaine. The Warblers perform "When I Get You Alone" so well, we're not sure we'll ever be able to listen to the Robin Thicke version again.

Sneaky Santana grows suspicious of Quinn and Finn, and she visits Finn's mono to test her theory by giving him mono. When Finn and Quinn secretly kiss in the auditorium, the sickness spreads, and they both wind up in the nurse's office, where Rachel comes to visit Finn. Finn tells Rachel kissing Quinn made him see fireworks, and it inspires Rachel to sing a love song… to herself. Rachel's version of Katy Perry's "Firework" sounds pretty much just like Katy Perry's version of "Firework." We're not saying it wasn't great, we're just saying there wasn't much of that signature Glee twist on this one.

The end of the episode finds the New Directions (minus the mono-ridden Finn and Quinn) at Breadsticks, where Kurt has gathered The Warblers to perform at the "first-ever Lonely Hearts Club Dinner." The Warblers perform Paul McCartney's "Silly Love Songs," and not only do they sound great (we really love The Warblers), but the song brings a sugary sweet end to a super-saccharine episode.

We're left with so many questions! What's happening in Mr. Schuester's love life? What was that look between Sam and Santana about? Are Blaine and Kurt going to get together after all? Is it next Tuesday yet?
