dad to ask him to buy an ad in the program to help save West Side Story, and Burt blows up. He ends up in Figgins

Burt says he’s going to raise money to keep her from being elected, at which

asks if Santana has any wishes, and she says she does. She wants to join the
new glee club, because she’s sick of always being back-up for Rachel; she wants
