I realized I was going for what I like to think as an older version of me from years ago. I think Ken is not happy with where he is in life.

Holly forces Emma to admit she is still attracted to Will, leading to Carl walking out and filing for annulment. When Finn was young, she had a relationship with a lawn-care worker who left her for a younger woman. He commented that in the pilot episode, Carole was "just the slightly pathetic figure we saw pining after the lawn-care guy", however her reaction to Quinn's pregnancy was "a brilliant bit of characterization through small moments", an example of how Glee was "becoming very good at showing how life happens in small exchanges in people's laundry rooms and finished basements".
She is made fun of by students and the glee club members initially for her weight, but when they discover she is Marley's mom they stand up for her. She makes all of Marley's clothes and is particularly fond of Marley's boyfriend Jake Puckerman and the rest of New Directions.
