Sam watches as Brittany pets Lord Tubbington and tells him that she loves him. Brittany gets concerned because Lord Tubbington doesn't say "I love you" back to her. Sam suggests that she should sing his favorite song, and that maybe that way he'll understand, but Brittany says that she stopped singing to him after she found out that he joined the KKKK (Klu Klux Klan for Kats). Sam then suggests bringing him to Glee Club and have the whole group sing to him, that way Lord Tubbington will see how much she loves him and the Glee Club won't think that Brittany is choosing a cat over them (the way he says this implies that his feeling are still hurt and is actually talking about himself).

After a little while he gets back up and tells Mr. Shue and Beiste that he has to go because she's all alone and he forces his way towards the door. Bieste and Mr. Shue once again tell him no and that it's dangerous. He says that he doesn't care and the two teachers have to physically stop him while he continues to fight them and grows more upset, leading Mr. Shue to cover his mouth with his hand as Sam gets extremely upset and starts to cry very loudly. They once again force him to sit down, and Artie comforts him.

A few days later when school is back in session, Sam and Brittany meet in the hallway. She calls him "baby", kisses him on the cheek, and asks him if he's feeling a bit more normal. He confesses that he was really scared because he was stuck in the choir room and she was outside by herself. He tells her that he couldn't stop thinking about her. They lean forward so that their foreheads are touching as they continue talking. Brittany tells him that he was all she thought about too. Sam admits that he's been acting like jerk about Lord Tubbington lately, but he says that it's because he's not that nice to him. Brittany tells him that she deleted Lord Tubbington's email account so that he would stop sending Sam harrassing messages. Sam assures her that if Lord Tubbington is important to Brittany, then he's important to him too.

Blaine brings up the fact that earlier in the year Sam proposed to Brittany and although it didn't end up being a real ceremony, they got married. Sam says that they did it because they thought the world was ending and when they realized that it wasn’t he regretted it.
When Brittany returns from her trip from visiting the MIT campus, she has a nasty, “diva” attitude. She demands all of the solos in Glee club, and she begins to insult the other Glee Club members. Sam intervenes saying that he loves her, but she's being really rude. Brittany then breaks up with him via text message and claims that even though she is "fascinated by his lips", she really misses her sweet lady kisses and she is not even sorry and she walks out of the room.
Sam is concerned about Brittany so he calls Santana and explains to her that Brittany broke up with him, quit the cheerios, is refusing to perform at Regionals, and that ever since she got back from MIT she has been acting strange. When Santana tries to brush it off, Sam says that he knows Santana doesn't like him, but he's worried about Brittany because something is clearly wrong and he is asking for her help. It is later shown that Santana listened to Sam and went to Ohio in order to talk to Brittany.
At Regionals, Sam is seen watching their competion perform when Brittany suddenly appears and walks up to him, meaning his call to Santana worked. They smile and hug each other.
Before they go on stage to perform, Brittany reveals to the Glee Club that she got offered an early admission to MIT, but that they want her to attend immediately. She explains that she accepted it because she's not sure if she'll ever get another opportunity like this. She tells them that this was the reason behind her bad attitude and meltdown. Brittany begins to cry and goes around the room and thanks the members for everything they've done for her. Throughout her speech Sam looks emotional and like he is holding back tears. She then walks up to Sam and tells him that he’s the cute boy from the wrong side of the tracks that does funny impressions and who she fake marries. She begins to cry harder and hugs him and tells him that she loves him so much and that she’s going to really miss him. As they continue to hug, Sam also begins to cry and tells her that he loves her and will miss her too.
