They later jokingly hold hands during Puck's solo Sweet Caroline. At the end of the song, they can be seen tickling each other's hands in an affectionate manner. When Mike chooses Glee club over football, Brittany runs over to give him an enthusiastic hug and is even heard saying 'I love you' to him.
