You think you're a badass. I'm the original bad-ass. I had my first threesome at seven, and once I beat up a police horse.
—Noah Puckerman, Britney 2.0
Noah "Puck" Puckerman is a major character on Glee. Puck is an alumnus of William McKinley High School as of Goodbye. He is now a former member of both the Glee Club and the Football Team. He is currently enlisted in the Air Force.
As a self-proclaimed "badass," Puck is well known around the school for constantly tossing students into dumpsters and also for initially being a primary culprit for throwing slushies in everyones faces. At first, Puck is very much opposed to the Glee Club, deeming it "gay" and a group for "losers." Shortly after Quinn Fabray joins the club, Puck discovers that she has become pregnant with his baby, and joins the glee club as a way of being closer to her. As Season One progresses, Puck begins to enjoy glee club and find his passion for singing.
Quinn eventually gives birth to their biological daughter in Journey. They named her Beth, and she is adopted by Shelby Corcoran, the coach of Vocal Adrenaline. In Season Two, Puck dates Lauren Zizes. In Season Three, it's revealed that Puck and Lauren broke up, as Puck says, "She was the one that got away, really slowly." In I Am Unicorn, he sees his one-year-old daughter, Beth for the first time since she was adopted. In Season Four, Puck returns to help out and mentor his half-brother, Jake Puckerman. Their relationship continues to grow and flourish, especially when Jake needs help with Marley. Puck dates Kitty Wilde after Sadie Hawkins, but they break up offscreen before Sweet Dreams. In Season Five, at the end of The Quarterback, Puck decides to enlist in the Air Force in order of honor his late friend, Finn. In 100, Puck officially begins a relationship with Quinn. In Season Six, he returns a few times to Lima, specifically helping Rachel and Kurt find new members for the glee club and Santana's and Brittany's (and then, Kurt's and Blaine's) wedding. In Dreams Come True, he comes back to McKinley in 2020 to a re-dedication of the auditorium to his late best friend Finn, also reuniting with everyone, living happily the way he planned.
He was a main character from the beginning until he was demoted to recurring starting from Season Five. He is portrayed by actor and singer-songwriter, Mark Salling.
Puck is first seen in the episode as one of the jocks who threw Kurt Hummel into a dumpster. He is also shown throwing a cherry slushie in the face of Rachel Berry after she has signed up for Glee Club. Puck listens quietly when Will Schuester comes to football practice to try to convince the football team to join knowing that a few popular kids in Glee could be very beneficial. However, Puck reminds Mr. Schuester of Glee's place in the social hierarchy when he tells Mr. Schuester he can sing, but instead passes gas loudly in front of the team, mocking Mr. Schuester. When he sees his best friend Finn Hudson, arguing with Coach Tanaka about having to miss a football practice to go with the Glee Club to scout Vocal Adrenaline, Puck asks him why he needs to miss practice. Knowing what Puck's reaction would be if he tells him he is doing something for Glee, Finn lies and says that his mom needs to have surgery to have her "engorged" prostate removed. Puck looks this up and discover that "chicks don't have prostates." To remind Finn about the damage Glee could do to his rep, Puck and several other football members attack Finn with paintball guns as he returns from the Glee Club field trip. After finding out that Will Schuester is going to resign as Glee club teacher, Finn immediately quits and returns to football. As a welcome back present, the football team traps Artie Abrams in a porta-potty and plans on flipping it, saving Finn the first roll. Puck gets angry, when Finn refuses wanting to know if he is joining "Homo Explosion" and quitting football. Finn, to the annoyance of Puck, tells them that he is staying in both.
Puck is shown to be one of the male members of the Celibacy Club with Finn and Quinn Fabray, even though he doesn't take it seriously, considering he seduces older women and as he put it, he's a "dude, [who has] needs." He spends much of the meeting making lewd jokes and gestures. He's also shown sticking to the football team's daily before school ritual of dumping Kurt in the dumpster, although Finn no longer participates. He watches, along with the rest of the school as Finn and the Glee Club perform Push It at the school assembly, with a look on his face that starts out embarrassed for Finn.
Puck reveals his love of older woman, where he explains that he uses his pool cleaning business to seduce lonely housewives and moms. Despite mocking Glee previously, Puck is willing to join Coach Tanaka and Will Schuester's singing group, Acafellas. He saw how the girls responded to Finn's performance of Push It at the school assembly, and has hopes of getting attractive older women when Acafellas performs for the School Board and PTA.
Quinn reveals to Finn that she is pregnant, claiming that he is the father, despite them never having sex, convincing him he got her pregnant via hot tub. In reality, Quinn is pregnant with Puck's child after he got Quinn drunk on wine coolers one night, also she felt fat that day and the two had a one-night stand. Puck, upon realizing that Quinn is pregnant, makes it clear that he wants to be with her and raise the baby. Quinn feels he is not worthy, insulting him by calling him a "Lima Loser" and saying that she chooses Finn. This causes Puck to become angry and spiteful towards Quinn, although he continues with the hope that Quinn will choose him.
Meanwhile, Puck decides to join the Glee Club after the football team wins their first game of the season, with the help of Kurt, who not only trained the team in dancing to help loosen them up in the field, but also scored the winning kick of the game. Since Quinn had previously joined Glee in order to keep an eye on Finn, this works to Puck's advantage, because he can spend time with her and convince her he's not a Lima Loser.
Quinn begins behaving more emotionally unstable, particularly towards Finn. The rest of the Glee Kids begin to take note of Quinn's behavior. Puck reveals to them that Quinn "has a bun in the oven." Around the same time Puck manages to score with the much older April Rhodes, who was brought into the Glee Club as a ringer, when Rachel Berry temporarily quits.
It is Puck who suggests that Finn go to the nurse's office for help with his exhaustion, which inadvertently leads to the entire Glee Club taking pseudoephedrine. Puck apparently has not attended a math class in two years, revealing to Finn, Kurt, and Artie that he tells the nurse he has a headache everyday and sleeps in the nurse's office when he should be in math class. Taking Puck's advice, Finn goes to the nurse, only to find that the nurse has been replaced with Terri Del Monico. She provides Finn and the boys with pseudoephedrine, making their performance of It's My Life/Confessions Part II for the competition against the girls, spectacular. Puck later watches in fascination with the rest of the guys as the girls due their mash-up of Halo/Walking on Sunshine.
Puck briefly drops his fixation on Quinn and the baby, and instead he starts to focus on Rachel.
After watching Schindler's List with his mother and sister, Puck's mom guilts him with the question of why he can't find a nice Jewish girl. That night, he has a dream of Rachel coming into his window. The realization that they are both hot Jews, leads Puck to attempt his hand at wooing Rachel. Puck and Rachel are placed together in the song mash-up, and during their practice, Puck suggests they make-out. Rachel agrees. When Rachel starts picturing Finn during their make-out session, she tells Puck the reason she won't go any further is that she needs a man brave enough to perform a solo. The next day at school, he buys Rachel a grape slushie because he knows it's her favorite after seeing her lick her lips the last time he threw a slushie at her. He later performs a solo of Sweet Caroline, causing every girl to swoon and earn him glares from Finn and Santana when they realize he is singing to Rachel. Unfortunately, dating Rachel is social suicide for Puck, who is targeted by his friends on the Football team.
However, when Coach Ken Tanaka makes the boys choose between the football team and the glee club, Puck decides to return to choose Glee for Rachel in an effort to prove himself to her. However their relationship does not last long because Rachel is still deluded with her school girl crush and Puck likes Quinn.
Puck figures out that the reason is Finn for Rachel, she, in turn, figures out that Puck has feelings for Quinn and calls him out on it. Puck is then physically frustrated at not being able to admit to Rachel that his feelings are for his baby and not just the cheerleader herself. Puck angrily rejects Rachel's offer of friendship.
Puck overhears Quinn yelling at Finn for not having a job and therefore, not having the money to take care of doctor's bills that she keeps intercepting so her parents don't find out she's having "his" child. While Quinn is making cupcakes for their bake sale, Puck approaches her and gives her money. He only gives her about eighteen dollars, which she tries to dismiss him for since it isn't near enough to pay for the bills; he asks how much Finn has given her, she cannot answer him because Finn hasn't given her anything.
Despite that, Quinn still refuses the money and gives it back, saying she will go to her grave swearing it is Finn's baby, even if it comes out with a mohawk, which Puck says "it would be pretty cool," while running his hand down her arm, gently; showing his softer side. The two proceed to have a playful food fight that leads to them almost kissing. Finn however walks in and interrupts them.
Later, Finn is complaining about Quinn pressuring him while they have a conversation as they make their way down the hall in their wheelchairs. Puck gets fed up with hearing him whine about it, when, as Puck says, Quinn has it much worse. Finn thanks him sarcastically asking, "what happen to bros before hoes?" Puck loses it at this comment and tells Finn he's "a punk who doesn't deserve to have Quinn as his girlfriend," they proceed to fight in the hallway. In order to prove himself to Quinn and make money for his family, since Finn hasn't done anything, Puck puts marijuana (which he got from Sandy Ryerson, using a sob-story) in the cupcakes. This causes the students to have a major case of the munchies and eagerly buy the cupcakes from the Glee Club's bake sale.
Puck steals money from the bake sale to give to Quinn for the baby, while explaining that he's not a screw-up and would be a good father. Although, she is touched by how he is trying to be a good to her and their child she refuses to take the money meant for Artie, but apologizes for calling him a loser earlier, realizing he is "special and romantic." Finn comes up and tells Quinn he's finally found a job. Quinn rides away in Finn's lap and they leave Puck standing there jilted. Afterwards Puck gives the money to Mr.Schue, smiling at Quinn, who appears to be proud of his actions, as he does so.
He gets paired with Mercedes for the Ballad assignment the glee-club is given that episode. He grows more and more disgusted from seeing Finn and Quinn together. When Mercedes then informs him about the glee-club wanting to dedicate a song for Finn and Quinn, he gets frustrated and reveals to Mercedes that he is the father of Quinn's child and not Finn. Mercedes reacts with disbelief at first, but then makes him aware that it doesn't matter since Quinn has already made the decision to raise her child with Finn. He exchanges looks with Quinn during Lean on Me at the end of the episode.
Quinn continues to pretend the father of her unborn baby is Finn. However, Puck, the real dad, is acting quite supportive of the baby, causing Quinn to question whether or not she was being unfair to Puck. Quinn, who originally was thinking of giving up her baby to Terri Del Monico makes the decision to keep the baby.
Terri's sister Kendra Giardi however decides to show Quinn the horrors of motherhood, by having her baby-sit her three sons. Quinn decides to use this as an opportunity to test out Puck as a potential father. Quinn and Puck babysit the rowdy, awful children and they are only quieted when Puck and Quinn perform an acoustic version of Papa Don't Preach. Of course, Kendra and Terri are shocked to find the boys so well behaved, sleeping all at the same time, and that Quinn got them to take baths. Quinn is sufficiently satisfied with Puck, until she discovers that during the entire night Puck was "sexting" (phone sex, using text messages) with Santana while they were babysitting. He admits to the deed saying, "You haven't given it up to me since the night I knocked you up. Baby, I'm a dude, I have needs." Trough his words she changes her plans and decides to give the baby to Terri, claiming it would need a good father.
This episode causes Puck to question his reputation. It's yearbook photo time at McKinley, and while this is good for the Cheerios and the football team, it's a nightmare for Glee. Knowing the Glee Club photo in the Thunderclap is traditionally defaced (often by the football team and Cheerios), Puck and the rest of Glee, with the exception of Rachel, do not want their photo taken. Like the rest of the club, Puck is still embarrassed at being in Glee, and willingly votes for Rachel to represent them in the yearbook. After Rachel gets Glee a gig in a Mattress commercial, the club begins to change their mind about how they're going to be viewed now that they have done a commercial, thinking it'll make them local celebrities. The commercial has disastrous effects, as Mr. Schuester is suspended rather than have Glee be disqualified from Sectionals for appearing in a commercial. Puck recognizes that Mr. Schuester willingly sacrificed himself for the club, and comes to the conclusion that they should not be embarrassed about being in Glee. The entire Glee Club poses proudly for the yearbook photo, although it is still defaced by Karofsky, Azimio and the rest of the football team. Puck's name is incorrectly listed as "Nathan Puckerman" under the photo.
The truth about the pregnancy finally comes to light. Mercedes has revealed the truth about the pregnancy to everyone in Glee with the exception of Finn, Rachel, and Mr. Schuester, despite telling Puck not to say anything. However, Rachel becomes to grow suspicious on her own about whether Puck is the true father, after he rushes to her side when she falls in Glee Club. After several tests to confirm her theory; she confronts Finn with the truth. Upset, Finn attacks Puck and demands the truth from him and Quinn. Without any other option, they admit the truth, causing Finn to cry out that he was not only done with them, but with Glee as well. Puck then goes to a heartbroken Quinn, offering his support as the true and official father. Quinn thanks him, but says no, and that she would rather take care of her pregnancy on her own. The Glee Club, with Ms. Pillsbury as temporary adviser, goes to Sectionals, having been forced to bring Jacob Ben Israel to take Finn's place. Puck, along with the rest of Glee is incredibly angry to find out that their set list has been leaked to the other clubs. Since New Directions is going last, this is a disaster. Puck, Quinn and Rachel begin to formulate a plan to create a new set list with less than an hour to prepare. Finn shows up during their meeting, having been sent by Mr. Schuester with a song to sing, and takes over the meeting. Puck attempts to make peace with Finn, asking if they are cool now and offering his hand, but Finn refuses his attempts, making it clear that he does not forgive Puck or Quinn just yet.
Puck plays a minor role although he is seen often in the choir room. It appears in this episode that he and Quinn have begun a tentative relationship, as he is often seen sitting beside her in the choir-room and goofing around with her during Hell-O. When Finn sings Hello, I Love You, Puck flirts with a cheerleader, from whom Quinn drags him away. He is seen complaining about Quinn's weight as well by saying "I don't dig on fat chicks."
In addition, basketball season has begun, and he is seen on the court with Finn. When Rachel breaks up with Finn, he joins her in singing Gives You Hell, dancing alongside Quinn. He is also seen at the end of the episode performing Hello, Goodbye with the New Directions.
Puck is less than impressed that the club will be performing Madonna songs, although he does admit that she is a "Hall of Fame MILF." Like the rest of the boys (with the exception of Kurt), he fails to understand Madonna's message, and seems less than interested when the girls perform Express Yourself. Mr. Schuester makes the boys of New Directions perform What It Feels Like For a Girl as a message to the boys. Puck gets the message, but still refuses to sing "What It Feels Like for a Girl" in public, fearing that it would look like he was intimidated. Ultimately he comes around, performing Like a Prayer with the rest of the New Directions.
Puck is seen performing Home with the rest of the New Directions and April Rhodes. Puck questions Finn's sexuality after Kurt serenades Finn with A House Is Not a Home. Quinn, having moved out of Finn's house after he found out the truth about the baby, is now living (unhappily) with Puck's family.
Puck is blamed for creating the "Glist," a ranking of the Glee members in order of sexual promiscuity. Rachel, annoyed at being so low on the Glist, asks Puck to help her with her video project of a rendition of the video Run Joey Run. While they work on the video, he tries to convince her to make out with him, but she refuses since she's already dating Jesse St. James. He chooses to confide in Rachel because he knows she'll be honest and he does trust her, asking her if she believes he made the Glist. When she says it looks like something he'd do, he gets upset, explaining that he tries to be good, but then something happens and he can't control himself.
The video is a disaster, since Rachel cast Finn and Jesse in the same role as Puck. While watching the video Puck is at first impressed with himself, to the annoyance of Quinn, until he realizes he was triple cast. Like Finn and Jesse, he is angry at being lied to, and upset that Rachel used him.
Puck loses his popularity when his mohawk is shaved off at the start of the episode. Jacob Ben Israel and the rest of the McKinley dorks take advantage of Puck's fall from popularity to toss him in the dumpster. Realizing that he needs to do something to become cool again, he strikes up a relationship with Mercedes. Puck also serenades Mercedes by singing The Lady Is a Tramp. As soon as he becomes popular again, Mercedes quits the cheerios and therefore ends their "relationship." It's also mentioned by Quinn "He (Puck)'s an idiot and his mother won't let me eat bacon."
Puck is seen throughout the episode. When Bryan Ryan asks the Glee Club about their biggest dreams, Puck is seen having written "Threesome" onto his sheet. He later performs Dream a Little Dream with Artie and the rest of the New Directions.
Puck suggests to Quinn that they name their baby Jack Daniels, Quinn stands up for her unborn daughter saying that it's not a name for a girl. Inspired by the boy's KISS assignment, and realizing what he has done wrong, he becomes serious about naming his daughter as he asks the other males of New Directions to sing the KISS song Beth with him to Quinn. Quinn is moved by his performance and they share intense glances. After the song he then asks Quinn if he can be there at Beth's birth, which she says yes to.
After Jesse with Vocal Adrenaline put the club in a "funk" and TP'd their choir room, he and Finn have revisited their friendship to get revenge on their rival club. The day after the two "friends" are caught on their prank, Shelby Corcoran, director of Vocal Adrenaline, asked them to pay for the tires they slashed. They ended up working in Sheets-N-Things to earn money, while working the two ended up performing Loser along with the rest of the staff of Sheets-N-Things. While at work Puck and Finn tries to find a funk song for their glee assignment. With the help of Terri, they find the song Good Vibrations, they performed the song with Mercedes in the choir room. After the performance Mr. Schue informed them that even though the song was sang by a group with 'Funk' in its name, it's not a Funk song. Later when Rachel revealed that she was egged by Jesse and the VA, Puck is visibly the angriest and immediately asks the guys to "mess up that Jesse kids face." Before they even exited the choir room Mr. Schue stopped the boys and told them he have his own way to get revenge. In order to put their rivals in the same funk they where put, the New Directions performed the funk number Give up the Funk with VA watching them. The number was a success and had the wanted result.Sue Sylvester has been named a judge at Regionals. Puck, like the rest of the club, is upset, knowing that Sue's presence will destroy any hopes New Directions had of placing.

Mr. Schuester manages to rally the club, announcing that they will be performing a Journey medley. Puck is given semi-solos at Regionals, performing a line in Any Way You Want It/Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin' and sharing Don't Stop Believin' with Santana, Finn, and Rachel.

He looks on helplessly, watching Quinn struggle to give birth, as she often yells at him that he sucks when she is in labor. Afterward when Puck and Quinn are looking at the baby Quinn asks if he loves her; he replies yes, especially now. Shelby Corcoran walks up and asks if the baby has a name. Quinn denies the baby has a name, but Puck tells her it's Beth. Back at school, Glee performs To Sir, With Love for Mr. Schuester, with each member telling him how Glee has changed them. Puck shamefully admits that at the beginning of the year, he was throwing kids in dumpsters. Like the rest of the club, Puck seems to be on the verge of tears, knowing that this will be the last time they perform together.

After performing in Empire State of Mind with the rest of the Glee Club, he helps Finn and Artie audition Sam. Puck is fascinated by the size of Sam's mouth, asking him how many tennis balls he can fit in his mouth.

He also sings One of Us with the rest of the Glee club. Finn's foray into spirituality leads Puck to examine his own life. He doesn't like being told how to be spiritual, and resents that people are using "J-Money to cramp everyone else's style." He tells Glee that believes that true spirituality is making the most out of the life you've been given, and says that he thanks God every time he makes out with a new girl. Finn's new spiritual side, combined with Burt's heart attack and its effect on Kurt, spurs Puck into going to Temple with his Nana and he starts to pray for Kurt, seeing how hard life is for him right now while telling Finn that, making him feel guilty about praying for himself while the other glee club members pray for Kurt. Knowing what it is like to have lost a father, he prays for Kurt to be able to keep his father, showing his serious side.
When Puck returns he begins acting like a jerk again and tells people about how he loved juvie. It was assumed that he would be very angry towards the blossoming romance between Sam and Quinn, but he appears to be disinterested. He then strikes up a friendship with Artie for his "community service," and the two sing One Love (People Get Ready) together. But later he tells Artie that he lied and that he hated juvie and it was terrifying because he got beaten up and wasn't as badass as he initially thought.

They lie down together on the bed and he takes her in his arms. Still angry about the previous events with Shelby, Puck confides the details of his affair with Quinn, after an emotional conversation with her about her future.

After their win, Quinn comes and hugs him happily. He is pleased when New Directions win. Puck also performs in We Are Young.
While Finn is discussing with the boys what to give Rachel as a Christmas present, Puck claims that the reason he doesn't have a girlfriend is because it means he doesn't have to go trough the trouble of choosing presents for her. He also has a part in the holiday special later in the episode. Together with Finn he walks into the room, dressed as Han Solo (this is done because Artie had the condition that the special would be a homage to The Star Wars Holiday Special, though they claim it is merely a coincidence). When the attendees explain, that they don't think that, due to climate change, Santa Claus will not come this year, Finn and Puck say that they've heard differently, and matching that, they sing Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. After the show is over, he goes to the homeless shelter together with the other, and together they sing Do They Know It's Christmas?.Warblers reveal that they have "stolen" New Directions idea to perform Michael Jackson's songs at Regionals, he imputes working together with the Warblers to Blaine, since it was him who let their intention slip.

He says that he's happy as a single-person and that he could have as many girls as he wants, whenever he wants. He exhibits that by attending the "Sugar Shack" with several sorority girls.
He can be seen with the New Directions while they are discussing Sebastian's black mailing, while they are performing at Regionals. He's there when the group discusses David Karofsky's suicide attempt, and asks Will why for him being caught cheating during exams is a reason to consider suicide, since Puck gets caught cheating all the time, but doesn't get in much trouble for it. When the New Directions then discuss what they are looking forward to in their life, he says, that although he is embarrassed to admit it, he wants to graduate from high school.
He plays a role in Finn's plans for the future. At first he can be seen discussing with the other senior how they are going to spend senior-ditch day. He remarks how long he has been waiting for it and how excited he is, and declines Kurt and Mercedes' idea. He only agrees with Quinn's idea, which is to go to the six flags amusement park. After the discussion, he pulls Finn aside. He tells Finn that he's planning to take his pool-cleaning business to Los Angeles after graduation, and is planning to make Finn his business partner. When Finn declines, Puck tricks him into coming to a client with him. There he shows him that coming to L.A. with him would be a golden opportunity for him, and that Rachel could become a movie actress while Finn works as a pool cleaner. He later goes to Six Flags park together with the other New Directions members, save Quinn and Artie. Quinn also remarks, how texting and driving at the same time was the second worst mistake she has ever made, aside from sleeping with Puck.
Puck still wants Finn to come to Los Angeles with him. He approaches Finn and wants to get organized with him, but Finn blocks him off and says that he doesn't want to go. Puck then admits that he wants Finn to go with him because he's scared of going alone, for which he gets teased and encouraged by Finn. When Finn confesses that he doesn't know what he wants to become, Puck says that whatever he does as a profession, he owes it to both of them to do it well. He is, like many other members of the New Directions, completely uninterested in the subject of the week and the dancing contest, but since Will Schuester says that everyone has to participate, even him, he dances to Night Fever. Despite this, he performs in Stayin' Alive together with the others wearing a John Travolta suit at the end of the episode.
Puck goes to his gym locker and hands out gift bags for the glee club guys containing shot glasses along with various other gifts. He reveals that he stole them from different houses he cleaned for his swimming business. The reasons for these gifts were due to the fact that he was going to miss them and with the very little time they have left, he wants to make the most of and wants them to make sure of all the memories that they shared. They shared a toast to conclude Pucks announcement.
He can be seen during Rachel's voice-over in the beginning, having a bunch of girls gathered around him. Finn overhears him telling one of the girls that he doesn't care anymore if he graduates or not, since he has his pool cleaning business and won't need it in his future. He is thus approached by Finn the next day, who wants his friends to still graduate, just in case he might need it someday. It has the result that Noah wants to take and pass the geography that he'd need to graduate. Instead of learning for the test, he decides to seduce his teacher instead, though. He approaches her and offers her presents. She sees through this, however, and tells him that he won't be able to buy her. Puck then reveals that he's doing this to get a passing grade in his test. His teacher then tells him that he's going to have to study when he wants to pass, like everyone else. When Puck then claims that he is too stupid for that, she contradicts him and says that he's only too lazy. Puck, however, doesn't want to hear anything about it and performs School's Out, dropping out of school in that process He can next be seen cleaning a pool of a client. The client, a middle-aged woman, offers to have sex with Puck, but he declines, saying that this is his last day. He explains to her, that he isn't graduating because he doesn't need to, and is thus leaving to the West Coast the following day. He then gets approached by his father, who asks Puck for money to pay his rent. Puck gives it to him, because he hopes that he will never have to see his dad again that way. He then returns to school and runs into his friends who are forging a plan to kidnap Puck and bring him back to school. He explains to them that the encounter with his dad made him want to graduate after all, because his father never graduated from High School and Puck fears he will end like that, having to ask Beth for money. In order to graduate, he will have to pass the geography test, so he asks his fellow New Directions Boys to help him study for it. Finn, speaking for all the others, agrees to help him. They can then be seen in a later scene studying for the test at 3 AM in the choir room. The others try to study with Puck, but the latter doesn't show even the smallest effort. Finn then makes another attempt and tells him something about the geography in Spain. He doesn't show interest in that either at first, and when Finn asks him which region gets the most rain, he replies multiple times that he doesn't know it. When Finn digs deeper, he manages to give the right answer, however. The New Directions Boys then burst into a performance and sing The Rain in Spain. Artie then pulls him towards his studies again. During the next day, Puck can be seen taking the exam, however, he's drawing a dinosaur with a guitar instead of answering questions. He only turns towards the questions in the last couple of minutes, and thus only answers a few. It is made clear then that Puck is going to fail the test, but when Finn and the others approach him afterwards, he claims that he thinks he might have passed. He then says "Thank you" to the New Directions Boys, explaining to them that it's difficult to grow up without a father and thus without a positive role model, but that the other became something like substitute dads to him. Rachel's final performance of Cry is intercut by a scene, in which Puck gets his test back. The grade he received is an "F," meaning that he won't be able to graduate.
Puck becomes part of the bunch that holds an anti-prom and spends the evening with Kurt, Blaine, Rachel, and Becky in a hotel room. When Finn comes and his fellow Glee Club members decide to attend the prom after all, Puck stays behind with Becky and plays strip poker with her. Becky tells him how disappointed she is, since she wanted to become Prom Queen, but didn't even get enough votes to be nominated. Puck then has an idea. He cuts two crowns out of cardboard and crowns himself and Becky to "anti prom" -king and -queen, which makes Becky's dream come true. They then visit the prom together and make a plan to spike the punch. Becky approaches Sue, who is guarding the liquid, and distracts her from it, while Puck pours a bottle of alcohol into the bowl. As Quinn stands up during Take My Breath Away, he claps.Tina's furious outburst over being held in the background for over three years. He takes the appearance of Blaine in Tina's Dream and can be seen watching Tina's performance. Later on, after absorbing what Sue said about it being essential that they have a guy perform in a dress to rival Unique Adams, he comes to school in a blue dress, a blonde wig and the stage name "Lola," causing Will to explode over Sue's erratic plans for Nationals. When he stands by his locker later during the day, he is surrounded by Rick Nelson and his hockey toadies, who taunt him about his dress and how "the mighty have fallen." In the end, Rick challenges him to a brawl outside at the dumpster Puck used to throw the nerds into.
In the afternoon, the two finally face off each other at the dumpster with a bunch of students there to watch them. Puck and Rick swipe at each other several times until Rick manages to subdue Puck with his friends and they then throw him into the dumpster before starting up an embarrassing chant of "Loser! Loser!" Puck flies into a rage and jumps out with a switchblade, causing Rick to back off nervously. Coach Beiste intervenes and breaks up the fight before angrily carting off Puck. In the locker room, Puck flies into a rage, in a bitter depression about his parents and his grades, over how he's failed at school and life. Although angry at first, Beiste relents as Puck bursts into tears and they hold each other and cry, Beiste commenting softly over how everyone thinks that, since they are badasses, nothing hurts them, but things do.Afterwards, he sings Mean alone in the auditorium as a song try-out for nationals until Beiste joins him and they finish together. It is then that Coach Beiste reveals that she convinced the geography teacher to allow him to retake the final European Geography Exam. By coming to school in a dress, he proved for the first time that he cared much more about something that wasn't him. The coach promises to help him and, when Puck asks her why she's helping him, she tells him it's because he's helped her in ways he doesn't know of so much. "You are loved, pumpkin," she says, "You're not alone." At the end of the episode, he is seen on the bus riding on his way to Nationals in Chicago with the rest of the New Directions, Will, Beiste and Sue.
Puck starts a fight with Sam because he prefers studying geography for the test he can re-take rather than practicing the choreography for the competition. This makes the entire glee-club fight and it takes the combined effort of Will and Santana to bring peace back to the group. He later goes onto stage as part of New Directions and has a solo in Paradise by the Dashboard Light where he also dances. When it is announced that the New Directions have won Nationals, he can be seen cheering and is still doing so when the club returns to McKinley High. He is at Finn's side when the latter claims money from Rick Nelson. He finally performs and sings a solo in We Are the Champions, which is dedicated to Will.
While the other seniors are preparing for their impending graduation, Puck is studying with Coach Beiste who is aiding him in his studies for his retest in his European Geography class so he can pass his class, and ultimately graduate with the rest. Soon Quinn takes over for Coach Beiste and brings Puck to her house where she tries to teach him what he will need for the test. Puck claims that he is hopeless and that he intends to leave because he doesn't believe that he can pass the test, but Quinn stops him, telling him that she loves him and that she has faith in him. He tells her that he doesn't deserve her affections because he's just a loser, but she disagrees with him, telling him why she loves him, and how much he's accomplished.
The two share a kiss. Puck describes said kiss as "magical" and says that it helped him focus, and gave him the will to study, and so Puck enters his exam confidently and writes his test. Later Puck and the other seniors are waiting to find out if Puck passed his test. Finally his teacher hands him his test and he happily tells the others he passed with a C-. He hugs Quinn, who says "I'm proud of you."

When the song ends, Finn starts a sentence with: oh, you guys - where Puck interrupts saying, "Dude, if you cry, I'll kick your ass." He is seen at Breadstix together with the others and jokes around. Also when Quinn tells about her accomplishments in Yale, he says "You go, girl." Puck is seen later in the episode mentoring Jake as well as standing by Jake when Quinn tells him to "back away" from Marley in order to win Sectionals.

Kitty walks away from her locker into a classroom and Puck follows, trying to argue her out of it. She then says, that she'll keep bugging Jake, unless Puck goes with her.

He says that he's a professional, and she's an amateur, but she sees no difference. Puck forces her to pay for the food due to it being a Sadie Hawkins dance, and she says she'll pick him up.
At the dance, they dance together, and seem to be loosening up to each other.

Revenge? Fear? The merciless infliction of pain? These are my kingdoms.
Noah "Puck" Puckerman is, at first glance, the stereotypical bullying jock. Arrogant, rude, and judgmental, Puck is under the unwavering belief that because he is a good at sports, he is better than everyone else. He is also a bit "gangster," as he abuses many "dweebs" and has even been sent to juvie due to his delinquent behavior. He even states that by second period he's causing trouble, like holding a fire extinguisher in his hand and spraying an unpopular person with it. And because of his supposed superiority, he believes that allows him to mistreat anyone else who he feels is different from him (such as Kurt for being gay and Artie for being handicapped). Puck also has a very easily provoked temper, and will attack friends and enemies at the drop of a hat if pushed.
Puck's arrogant behavior has made it to where he often doesn't consider the consequences of his actions and behavior, and how it might affect others. Puck's arrogance not only relates to school politics, but also in regards to girls. Although crude, Puck is nonetheless handsome, and knows it. As such, he feels any and all women are fair game for his sexual prowess. He's shown himself to be particularly fond of older women MILFs (Mom I'd like to F*ck). In truth however, Puck is willing to have sex with any woman who is available, even his best friend's girl. He also seems to revel in the chase and the conquest, as can be seen with his pursuing of Lauren in Season Two. Because he has a lot of sex, he thinks he is a sex master, as stated in Prom-asaurus.
However, although Puck rarely shows it, he does have several surprising good qualities. He is sensitive about being liked and popular, and finds the idea of being an outsider or bullied unnerving and has been shown to feel guilty for behaving that way towards others so much so that he seems to have stopped his bullying streak since joining the glee club, at least his bullying towards glee members. He knows that his actions are wrong and owns up to that; he doesn't lie about it. Puck also seems to find family very important, as he has a regular family event in which his mother, sister and himself will watch Schindler's List. In addition, Puck is seen trying to be a good father and influence around his daughter, Beth, showing another time how much family means to him. When his mother asks him to date a nice Jewish girl, he does so and asks Rachel out in order to honor his mother's request. Furthermore, when Puck discovers that Quinn is carrying his baby, he does as much as he can to show himself as a good father, although he uses some illegal methods. He shows how much he cares for Quinn when he gets into a physical fight with Finn, after he stated that Finn was often thinking about himself, ignoring how much pain Quinn was in, and even going as far as saying that he doesn't deserve her.
Don't push me Karofsky. You pushed my boy Kurt out of here. Juvie or no, you're already number one on my list to go all Death Star on.
Puck has also proved loyal on occasion, as his friendships with the Glee Club have progressed, such as removing the Glist from Rachel's locker when "someone" (Quinn) put it there and his willingness to get into fights to defend Glee even if it will send him back to Juvie. He is also able to take care of Kendra's children alongside Quinn, something Kendra herself can't do, thus implying that he can be a good parent. Puck also seems to be changing his promiscuous ways, refusing to make out with Rachel because he felt guilty cheating with his best friend's girlfriend a second time. Most notably Puck seems to have genuinely fallen for Lauren Zizes, an overweight girl with a lot of attitude, clearly showing he is able to love someone for who they are despite popularity status or physical appearance and is not afraid to show it.
He has also mentioned buying dip on several occasions and seems to be a very devout Jew.
In Season Two he values his friendship with Finn, feeling bad about sleeping with Quinn, judging by his situation with Rachel. He eventually manages to win back his friendship, and seems to be a much helpful friend later.
As of Season Three, it appears as if Puck's juvenile behavior has lessened, and he appears to be on better terms with Artie or Kurt, and in the First Time, he tries to give Finn advice about him and Rachel. He's also trying to be a good father towards Beth, who has been adopted by Shelby, and persuades Quinn to get back to normal, therefore they can participate in Beth's life. In Props, he experiences an emotional breakdown, crying in tears deeming himself as the school's failure. He then cites how his mother never shows up to any of his performances or games the entire time, and how for the first ten years of his life his father did nothing, but call him "garbage." This shows how insecure Puck has felt and how he may have seen himself.
It appears, that on a few occasions he is shown to not make a certain mistake another time. When Rachel got close to Puck to make Finn jealous, he did not sleep with her, apparently remembering that he already hurt Finn once with Quinn and does not wish to do it again.

- It was Mark Salling's idea to give Puck a Mohawk.
- All of the bullying that Puck had done to Kurt, Rachel, and Artie was done to him: like Rachel, he was slushied in Mash-Up; like Kurt, he was thrown into a dumpster in Laryngitis and Props; and like Artie, he was locked in a portable bathroom in Special Education.
- When Puck visited his daughter, Beth, for the first time since her adoption, he is wearing the same shirt that he wore when he sung Beth.
- In Audition, he claimed to have gotten a vasectomy. However, in I Kissed a Girl, he is worried that he would get Quinn pregnant, despite not being able to conceive children. This is probably just a continuity error.
- Puck has played his guitar in every solo he has sung.
- In Original Song, Puck stated that his favorite song of all time is "What's Going On" by Marvin Gaye.
- From 100 onwards, Puck was never seen wearing another clothes out from his US Air Force Uniform.
- Puck's relationship with Quinn is his longest, as is hers.
- Season Three is the only season where he has a Mohawk for the entire season.
- He appeared in a total of 80 episodes and sang in a total of 57 songs throughout his time in the series.
