Glee Deleted Scene: Mike Chang Gets a Surprise Graduation Gift

Get More: Glee, Video

Ryan Murphy may taketh away when Glee episodes run long and selected scenes wind up on the editing room floor. But he also giveth — especially now that he’s on Twitter – as evidenced by his releasing yet another deleted scene this week to the show’s core fan base.

The latest gift to help Gleeks get through the summertime doldrums? A clip of Mike Chang getting a graduation gift from his parents. As Mr. Murphy himself Tweeted, “One of the many heart-breaking losses when an episode is 15 minutes long. #criminallyneglectedcouples”

I won’t quibble with the fact that FGAAPCPA isn’t the catchiest acronym, or ask why the Changs didn’t save this tender moment for home, rather than the halls of McKinley High. Let’s just press play and enjoy a little extra time with Mike and Tina, shall we? And when you’re done, hit the comments with your thoughts on the scene.

  • Another great deleted scene! Well, I think we just need to make Glee 90 minutes instead of 60 minuters. :)

  • Awesome scene, too bad it was cut because I really like Mike and Tina. Sad thing is that seeing as they are such side characters their scenes are least important and easiest to cut, making them even more obsolete.

  • surprised the RM even cares for the Tike side of the fandom as small as we are. they were so sweet. it would have added closure with them more if they had kept this.

  • this should have been in a episode. probably had to be cut to make room for Blaine walking down the hall or something

    • Exactly my thoughts, or more specifically, no Asian dad would act like this.

  • I can understand why they cut this. Kind of cheesy and not especially realistic. But it does make reference to the one thing we know about Mike Chang: He dances!

  • If you had to choose between the scene of Finn taking Rachel to the train station, canceling there wedding, and announcing he was going into the Army to find out what really happened with his dad… How could you possibly make the choice? However, that said, This was truly an inspirational moment that parents and kids of any race could have taken something from.
