About the Script:
"The First Time" was heralded as one of the most groundbreaking episodes of television for its respectful and compassionate portrayal of two teen couples' journey to physical intimacy, one of which happened to be gay. The couples' firsts were also a first for prime time, network television, showing that no matter if it's between a girl and a boy or a boy and a boy, love is just as complicated, real and beautiful.
The script contains deleted scenes and songs and is autographed by members of the cast of Glee, including: Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Chord Overstreet, and Jenna Ushkowitz.
