over their wedding arrangements, and Finn gets his knickers in a twist because he thinks the thing that Rachel is really compromising on is him, and not the crappy folding chairs; but Rachel, it must be said, has really matured in the relationship department, and calmly tells him he’s just projecting his own securities on to her. (Of course, when I say she’s matured, that’s still within the confines of thinking marriage at 18 is a good idea…)
Finn feels super-confident about his prospects of being accepted to The Actor’s Studio, one of the most selective drama programs in the country, despite his super-late application, and flashes back to his audition with none other than James Lipton himself (what was James Lipton doing on Ohio?

I’m not saying he’s a bad guy—but he ain’t my messiah just ‘cuz he’s the
