Rory makes his first appearance in Pot O' Gold. He is an Irish foreign exchange student with an accent, who has been living with Brittany (whom he appears to have a crush on) who believes he is a leprechaun. Rory is shown to be incredibly naive about America, expecting it to be like an idealized country; instead, he is constantly pushed around and insulted by the jocks at McKinley for everything from his accent to his clothes. Rory's first song on the show is a dream-sequence rendition of the classic Kermit the Frog song Bein' Green. Throughout the episode, Rory, in the hope of finally losing his virginity, pretends to be a real leprechaun and "grant" Brittany's wishes as she has promised him that after she gets three wishes fulfilled, she will let him into her "Pot of gold". Rory admires Finn, whom he recognizes from an online video of him kissing Rachel at last year's Nationals. Rory soon manages to awkwardly befriend Finn. Afraid that he will steal Brittany, Santana intimidates Rory into convincing Brittany to follow Santana in defecting from New Directions into rival glee club The Troubletones, which leads to a confrontation in the halls between Finn and Brittany which disillusions Brittany. After being saved by Finn from the bullies, Rory follows him and joins New Directions, singing Take Care Of Yourself. His performance is generally well-received, Rachel even describing it as "magical", although when Rory displays that he can also achieve an impressive falsetto, Kurt is visibly disturbed and possibly jealous as this was previously a skill he held over the other kids.

In The First Time, Rory is seen playing Indio in West Side Story; his accent made him quite distinctive - Coach Beiste, one of the directors, remarked that she had to work hard with him.

In Mash Off, he was walking in the halls with Finn and they see Santana. Rory tried to help Finn get back at Santana for trashtalking him, but Santana only said "that is the lamest thing I didn't understand a word of" and Brittany agreed. Finn let Rory have a solo in I Can't Go For That/You Make My Dreams to prepare him for Sectionals although Rory felt he wasn't ready for that "honor". Along with the rest of New Directions and The Troubletones, he took part in the dodgeball game. He was eventually ganged up on by Santana and the Troubletones, and they threw dodgeballs at him causing his nose to bleed, but he was saved by Kurt. Later, Rory stood up for Finn when Santana called him names.

In I Kissed a Girl, he makes brief appearances during the New Directions' girl's performance of I Kissed a Girl and also during Santana's Constant Craving. He is seen shocked when Rachel announced she stuffed the ballot box in Kurt's favor and is banned from competing in Sectionals.

In Hold on to Sixteen, he seems to enjoy Sam's Red Solo Cup performance with the rest of New Directions' members. Then, he practices choreography with the New Directions for Sectionals. When Puck says they need more girls in order to win, he agrees and make a brief comment about the situation which leads to Sam's idea of using the boys' "sex appeal" in their choreography. He then goes on to actually perform with the New Directions at Sectionals and makes a few appearances as a back-up dancer.

In subsequent seasons, the main cast has expanded to fourteen and fifteen members. The series was created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan, the last of whom first conceived of Glee as a film.

Sociological Reflections on High School: a Media Analysis of Glee

...Sociological Reflections on High School: a media analysis of Glee The following is a paper I wrote for a sociology class and I have been thinking alot about group dynamics and fitting in and the difference a close knit group of friends can make in one person's life...more on that topic to come. The minority to be analyzed is the subordinate group in the high school environment. More specifically: how can membership in a subordinate group perceived as “bottom of the rung”, enhance the cohesiveness of that socially subordinate group in the adolescent environment, and how does the subgroup attempt to overcome the negative perception imposed on them? The hypothesis being that members of a social group with specific goals, perceived as subordinate and influenced by the social superiority of their peers will bond as a result of common social maltreatment as well as common goals. The results of this study can provide an understanding of the realistic ability for high school aged children to develop healthy relationships despite their subordinate status within their social environment and whether this idea is accurately represented in the media. Literature Review             In addressing the concrete definition and study of cohesion, Moody and White explain the ongoing issue of cohesion this way:                                     “Although questions about social cohesion lie at the core                                     of our discipline, definitions are often vague...

While some Nguni pushed further South to form the Xhosa nation, we are interested in a small clan headed by a chief called  that settled in the Umfolozi River area. Malandela's wife was called Nozinja and they had two sons, Quabe, then Zulu (heaven).

Sociolgy Critical Analysis it organized and perpetuated the power structure in the world of Glee relating to whiteness (Carol & Henry , 2010). The dominant ideology of race more specifically white race, became embedded in everyday cultural practices. Dubrofsky’s article focuses too heavily on the downplay of racism between characters and racist tropes and neglects the exposure and affects of whiteness viewers will unintentionally observe. The idea of assimilation and integration is illustrated in various ways where whiteness is used as a platform to gain acceptance, produce opportunities and establish success. Throughout the first two seasons of Glee Mercedes’ role was a typical stereotypical Black person being “…undisciplined, unrefined, primitive, exotic, inappropriately sexual, emotional and unstable” (Banjo & Fraley, 2014). Furthermore the notion of attaining recognition and success is only exemplified once Mercedes has whitened herself via her appearance, behavior and disposing her urban inflictions. When Mercedes auditions for her play post “whitening” the judges are impressed “…with talk of how she is finally showing she has what it takes to be a star” (Dubrofsky, 2013). Dubrofsky’s article is deprived of collective wholeness in ignoring other characters in the show and their racial experiences and challenges in regards to white privilege. The article can be improved by including other characters that exist within Glee of other racial backgrounds such as Tina Cohen-Chang. These......

Literary Analysis of 'Dreams' by Fleetwood Mac

...Meghan Tedder 4/01/2012 College Writing II Literary Analysis [Broken] Dreams The album Rumours by Fleetwood Mac is considered to be one of the best albums of all time by critics (Rumours). This album was the peak of the band’s success but also represented the end of several relationships within the group. During the time the album was made, drummer Mick Fleetwood was going through a divorce, band members John and Christine McVie were separated, and Stevie Nick’s eight year relationship with Lindsey Buckingham had ended. Through the tension, the band was able to produce a mix of emotionally charged songs. Within the album, “Dreams” received the best feedback. The song talks about how a guy that wants his freedom by being single, but also the inevitability of loneliness he will feel once he realizes what he’s lost. When analyzing the lyrics the complexity of emotions is apparent and familiar to many audiences. The first verse, “Now here you go again. You say you want your freedom. Well who am I to keep you down?” sets the stage for the breakup (Fleetwood Mac). The use of the word again shows the frustration Stevie felt when Buckingham was not trying to meet her needs and instead wanted the freedom to do things for himself. The wording, “keep you down” applies to the idea that Stevie felt she did not have the right to control his independence. With a more accepting tone Stevie sings, “It’s only right that you should play the way you feel it” but continues...

Women’s Roles in Society

...Unit 1: Lesson 5: Names and Faces — Chopin and Freeman Stepping Beyond Society’s Limits “Women’s Roles in Society” 1. How would you describe the tone of each story? - “Story of an Hour”: The tone begins with hints of sadness and very quickly ascends into glee with Louis Mallard’s realization of her freedom from a husband she doesn’t loveland a marriage she wasn’t happy in. Then, irony strikes as she discovers that her husband is actually not dead and she not at all free. The tone suddenly shifts from gleeful back to depressing with the Mallard’s realization that she still has to live a life under her husband and then dies of a heart attack. - “Revolt of Mother”: The tone was both scandalous and shocking. 2. What rhetorical strategies were used to assist the writer in achieving this tone? Explain. - “Story of an Hour”: To assist in achieving the tones of sadness and glee, the author used Imagery and Personification: - Imagery: describing her view out the window, her emotions, the idea coming to her, all added to the effect of how upset she was and how drastically her emotions changed once the idea of freedom hit her. - Personification: The author gave this idea of freedom a humanistic quality, like it was a person coming up to her to change her mind—this made the affect and importance of the idea on Louis more obvious. - “Revolt of Mother”: Freeman’s narrative technique assisted her in achieving the scandalous and shocking tones because she was......

...because there were so many flowers packed together that they seemed to be neverending. The speaker guesses that there were ten thousand daffodils, which were "Tossing their heads in sprightly dance": Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. In the third stanza the speaker compares the waves of the lake to the waves of daffodils and decides that even though the lake is "sparkling," the daffodils win because they have more "glee." He then comments that he, like any other poet, could not help but be happy "in such a jocund company." He looked at the scene for a long time, but while he was there he was unable to understand what he had gained from the experience: The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed--and gazed--but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought In the fourth and final stanza the poet describes what he gained from the experience. Afterwards, when he was lonely or feeling "pensive," he could remember the daffodils, seeing them with his "inward eye," and be content: For...
