Season Three

Dance with Somebody

Chandler greets Kurt and compliments his taste in both fashion and music.

Kurt and Chandler

He talks about his audition for NYU and also Kurt's NYADA call-back, and Kurt gives him his phone number. Kurt doesn't realize that Chandler likes him as more than just as a friend.

During the episode, Chandler exchanges dozens of flirty messages with Kurt. Blaine reads through his texts, and is heartbroken when he finds them. He confronts Kurt and they argue. Kurt states that he did not consider this cheating, but only harmless fun, but Blaine remains hurt and angry. Blaine and Kurt go to couples counseling and resolve their issues. This ends with Kurt telling Chandler to stop texting him. 


Chandler is only mentioned once more, in the fantasy sequence when Puck and Finn trade places with Blaine and Kurt. Puck as Blaine mentions his jealousy over Chandler and Kurt having texted, and Finn as Kurt reassures him that it meant nothing.


  • He selected Rainbow High from Evita for his NYU audition, but the sheet music was not available at "Between the Sheets," so it is unknown if he used that number to audition.
  • He shouts when he gets overwhelmed and very excited.
