Puck and the Football Team trap Artie in a porta-potty, planning to flip it over. Finn points out that this could be dangerous, but Puck counters that Artie is already in a wheelchair anyway. Puck offers Finn the chance to tip the porta-potty over, but Finn instead frees Artie, to which Puck responds: "Why are you helping out this loser?"
Having now joined the Glee Club, Puck helps carry Artie on his wheelchair when they are storming out of the auditorium.
Puck wants to help Artie, but he cares more about his family so he tries to steal money from the cupcake fund for Quinn and their baby. Quinn reminds him that Artie is someone they both consider a friend, though. Puck then gives all the money to the Glee club in order to help Artie, like it was originally intended.One Love (People Get Ready) to raise Artie's popularity and gain some money to help pay Puck's parole. Artie tells Puck he is still in love with Brittany, so Puck arranges for them to go on a double date with him and Santana. At the restaurant Puck decides to dine 'n' dash, but Artie doesn't want to and pays, this makes Puck angry with Artie. When Puck gets told helping Artie doesn't count as community service, Artie offers to help Puck picking up trash by the highway, during which Artie would tutor him on geometry so that he can pass the class. Puck apologies for what he said at the restaurant and Artie thanks Puck for making him feel cool.
At the very beginning of the final scene of the episode, before Mr. Schue walks into the classroom to announce what his plans are for Sectionals, Artie is playfully punching Puck's open hands in some sort of game.
Puck plays the guitar during the song Isn't She Lovely, which Artie sings to cope with his breakup from Brittany. Later, he gives him some advice on how he can win her back. Puck also wants Artie's help to spike Sue's punch bowl, which Artie declines at first. However, after Brittany rejects his prom proposal, he tells Puck that he'll help. Later, the two perform Friday at the prom with Sam. The prank to spike the punch bowl ultimately backfires as Sue catches Artie in the act, resulting in him miss most of his junior prom. Sue tries to interrogate him to tell her who put him up to the job, but Artie refuses to rat out Puck, even though it costs him most of his prom.
As Artie is wheeling himself down the halls he raises his hand to give Puck a high-five, but Puck gives him an unamused look and leaves him hanging.
At the end, when everyone thanks Artie for being a great director and gives him flowers, there is a nice close-up shot of Puck smiling at him and clapping for him.
To help Puck graduate, Artie with the rest of the New Direction boys (minus Kurt) help Puck study for his Geography exam staying up the whole night to tutor him.
When Puck announces that he is going to attend the anti-prom instead of the actual one, Artie asks him what became of his plan to spike the punch bowl at prom with alcohol, reminding Puck how he almost lost his teeth for it the year before.
During You Get What You Give, Artie shakes his head and smiles at Puck's solo line and dancing.
When Rachel explains how Glee Club is about different people coming together in order to have fun at making music, she uses Puck and Artie as an example.
In Artie's dream, he can walk and therefore results in no Glee Club. In the halls, Artie notices Puck, along with Finn, Sam, Jake, Ryder, and Mike, harassing and bullying Kurt against the lockers and mocking his sexuality. Artie then steps in, wondering why they are acting like such jerks since they have sung Lady Gaga. Immediately Puck turns his attention to Artie and also pushes him into the walls and threatens to break his legs if he ever says that again to anyone. Artie then recruits all the members of New Directions into the choir room and tries to get them to remember the good times and the love they have for singing by performing Feliz Navidad. During the performance, Puck looks unamused and questions what he is trying to do.
It is also insinuated that without Artie and the club, Puck never got the help academically for his classes, and therefore failed and didn't get to graduate on time, and hence why Puck was still at McKinley.
They do not interact in the episode, but when Finn suggests doing a bake sale to raise money for Regionals, Artie reminds Finn that the fundraising back in "Wheels" had only successful because Puck had spiked the cupcakes with marijuana.
Artie watches as Puck performs No Surrender with the rest of New Directions. After the performance Santana confronts Puck about Finn's letterman jacket, Puck denies it but Artie still accused him of stealing it.
