    I need to focus on dreams I can make come true. |”| —Artie Abrams, Arthur James Artie Abrams is a major character on [Glee](/wiki/Glee_(TV_series)). He is an alumnus of [William McKinley High School](/wiki/William_McKinley_High_School), where he actively participated in the schools Glee Club, [New Directions](/wiki/New_Directions), until his graduation. He is currently a student at the Brooklyn Film Academy in New York. He was one of the original five. It is revealed in [Wheels](/wiki/Wheels) that he had got in a car accident with his mother when he was eight-years-old, which resulted in him being in a wheelchair. Although he is paraplegic, Artie refuses to let that get in the way of his ambitions, such as in [Britney/Brittany](/wiki/Britney/Brittany), when he decided to join the [football team](/wiki/Football_Team). In [Dream On](/wiki/Dream_On_(Episode)), it is revealed that Artie dreams of being a dancer, despite being paraplegic, and hopes to find a cure for his disability. At the beginning of [Season Five](/wiki/Season_Five), Artie started a relationship with [Kitty](/wiki/Kitty_Wilde) but they broke up some time after he moved to New York. He graduated in [New Directions](/wiki/New_Directions_(Episode)), along with [Blaine](/wiki/Blaine_Anderson), [Tina](/wiki/Tina_Cohen-Chang), [Sam](/wiki/Sam_Evans), [Brittany](/wiki/Brittany_Pierce), [Becky](/wiki/Becky_Jackson), and the rest of the seniors.

    He returns to McKinley to help [Kurt and](/wiki/Kurt_Hummel) [Blaine](/wiki/Blaine_Anderson) find new members for the Glee Club and he also becomes [Brittany](/wiki/Brittany_Pierce)s and [Santana](/wiki/Santana_Lopez)s wedding planner. In [2009](/wiki/2009), it is revealed that he originally auditioned for the Glee Club because of a bet he had made with [Tina](/wiki/Tina_Cohen-Chang)s goth friends. In [Dreams Come True](/wiki/Dreams_Come_True), five years after New Directions win at the 2015 Nationals, he rekindles his relationship with [Tina](/wiki/Tina_Cohen-Chang). He becomes a film director and is present during the re-dedication of the Auditorium, performing [I Lived](/wiki/I_Lived) with the former members of the glee club. He was portrayed by American actor and singer [Kevin McHale.](/wiki/Kevin_McHale) Biography Arties friend, [Tina](/wiki/Tina_Cohen-Chang), helps him sign up for [New Directions](/wiki/New_Directions), due to him not being able to reach the sign-up sheet. For unknown reasons, they did not show Arties audition (later revealed to be [Pony](/wiki/Pony_(Song)) in [2009](/wiki/2009)). Artie is given the solo in [Sit Down, Youre Rockin the Boat](/wiki/Sit_Down,_You%27re_Rockin%27_the_Boat) with [Mercedes](/wiki/Mercedes_Jones), [Rachel](/wiki/Rachel_Berry), [Kurt](/wiki/Kurt_Hummel), and Tina, which makes Rachel furious.

    During the number, Artie is unable to dance or move that much due to his wheelchair. When Rachel tells [Will](/wiki/Will_Schuester) that Artie having the solo is ridiculous, Artie suggests Will is using irony to enhance the performance and Rachel states there is nothing ironic about show choir. Rachel almost rolls Artie off the stage in Youre the One That I Want, in which he performs background vocals. Artie appears sad when Will announces he is resigning. Later the football team (including [Puck](/wiki/Noah_Puckerman)) stuffs Artie in a Port-A-Potty stall, and plans to flip it. Artie is terrified and pleads mercy, but is eventually rescued by [Finn](/wiki/Finn_Hudson), who rolls him back to the [auditorium](/wiki/The_April_Rhodes_Civic_Pavilion). This annoys the football team. Artie performs background vocals (and guitar) in [Dont Stop Believin](/wiki/Don%27t_Stop_Believin%27). ( [Pilot](/wiki/Pilot)) Artie is seen with Mercedes, Tina, and Mr. Schue practicing runs. He performs background vocals in Le Freak, a disco song he and the rest of the Glee Club hate. He suggests modern music to Will, who rejects his idea. Artie performs background vocals in [Gold Digger](/wiki/Gold_Digger) and is present in a Will-less Glee Club rehearsal in which the club plans to appeal to the schools interest into sex appeal.

    He performs background vocals and has a solo in [Push It](/wiki/Push_It) to an enthused audience. ( [Showmance](/wiki/Showmance)) Artie is present at a Glee rehearsal, in which Rachel tells Will his choreography is lame. He is also seen at rehearsal without Will. Artie and Tina clean cars at the Glee Club car wash fundraiser. [Dakota Stanley](/wiki/Dakota_Stanley) kicks Artie out of the club due to his disability, which led to Tina leaving with him as well. Rachel stops them before they leave and she fires Dakota. ( [Acafellas](/wiki/Acafellas_(Episode))) Artie is seen in a Glee Club rehearsal, in which Tina is given a solo. He is seen at another rehearsal at the end of the episode. ( [Preggers](/wiki/Preggers)) Artie is seen practicing with the Glee Club for Invitationals. Artie and the rest of New Directions are skeptical when [April Rhodes](/wiki/April_Rhodes) joins the club. Artie is seen warming up with the Glee Club just before Invitationals, and he performs background vocals in [Last Name](/wiki/Last_Name) and [Somebody to Love](/wiki/Somebody_to_Love_(Queen)). ( [The Rhodes Not Taken](/wiki/The_Rhodes_Not_Taken)) Artie finds out which schools will also be at Sectionals. On discovering that the schools are barely any competition he puts his hand up for a high five from Brittany, who is standing next to him, only to see she had turned around, he puts his hand down sadly.

    Will tells the club that they will compete in a glee-off between the girls and boys, in which each team must perform a mash-up. According to Artie, the boys planned to beat the girls. The boys decide to perform a mash-up of [Its My Life and Confessions](/wiki/It%27s_My_Life/Confessions_Part_II). They perform their mash-up under the influence of Finns decongestant and Artie performs a short solo and background vocals. Artie watches the girls [mash-up](/wiki/Halo/Walking_on_Sunshine). Will is later furious with Artie and the rest of the Glee Club when he finds out about the performance enhancers [Terri](/wiki/Terri_Del_Monico) provided. ( [Vitamin D](/wiki/Vitamin_D)) [Sue](/wiki/Sue_Sylvester) steps in as co-head of the Glee Club. She tries to make Mr. Schuester look insensitive to minorities by taking Artie and other minority students into her elite Glee Club. Artie performs background vocals in [Hate on Me](/wiki/Hate_on_Me) and [Ride wit Me](/wiki/Ride_wit_Me). Artie storms out of the auditorium with the rest of the Glee Club after Sue and Will argue, and performs background vocals in [Keep Holding On](/wiki/Keep_Holding_On). ( [Throwdown](/wiki/Throwdown)) Artie, Tina, and Mercedes avoid [Dave Karofsky](/wiki/David_Karofsky) in fear of being hit by a slushie.

    [Will](/wiki/Will_Schuester) suggests a mash-up with [Bust a Move](/wiki/Bust_a_Move) to the Glee Club, and Artie performs background vocals (and bass) in the song when Will begins singing it. Artie is present at [Puck](/wiki/Noah_Puckerman)s performance of [Sweet Caroline](/wiki/Sweet_Caroline) and throws a slushie at Will with the rest of [New Directions](/wiki/New_Directions). ( [Mash-Up](/wiki/Mash-Up)) When the group makes plans for [Sectionals](/wiki/Sectionals_(Competition)), Will discovers that the school wont give him a bus capable for Arties wheelchair. When he informs the group that they need to raise money, the other students are unconcerned, saying that Artie can just ride with his dad. This visibly hurts Arties feelings. He later sings [Dancing with Myself](/wiki/Dancing_with_Myself). Disappointed at the New Directions behavior, Will forces the kids to raise the money with a bake sale, and to ride in wheelchairs for a week to see how difficult it is for Artie to spend his whole life in a wheelchair. Artie tells [Tina](/wiki/Tina_Cohen-Chang) that he was in a car crash when he was eight years old. While his mother who was driving the car was fine, Artie was left paralyzed from the waist down (although he still is capable of using his penis as he tells Tina).

    Artie falls for Tina because he feels connected to her because they both have disabilities (Arties paraplegia and Tina’s stutter). They finally have a date together which ends in wheelchair drag races down the hall. After losing to Artie, Tina kisses him. Afterward, Tina confides in Artie her stutter is fake, something she created to not have to do an oral report in grade school. Artie is hurt by the lie and claiming that the connection he thought they have is a lie, breaks off the relationship, much to Tinas disappointment. He performs solos and background vocals in [Proud Mary](/wiki/Proud_Mary), a special wheelchair number in Arties honor. ( [Wheels](/wiki/Wheels)) [Endless Love](/wiki/Endless_Love). Artie sings a solo and background vocals in [Lean on Me](/wiki/Lean_on_Me), a ballad dedicated to Quinn and Finn about Quinns pregnancy. ( [Ballad](/wiki/Ballad)) Artie is present at a glee rehearsal. Artie is given a wig and the Glee Club learns hairography. He performs solos and background vocals in [Hair/Crazy in Love](/wiki/Hair/Crazy_in_Love), [Imagine](/wiki/Imagine), and [True Colors](/wiki/True_Colors). ( [Hairography](/wiki/Hairography)) Kurt tells the Glee Club that having a glee yearbook photo would be embarrassing.

    Artie votes for Rachel as team captain, and refuses when Rachel asks him to be her co-captain. The club is cast in a [Mattress Land](/wiki/Mattress_Land) commercial, in which they perform [Jump](/wiki/Jump). We see Artie out of his wheelchair for the first time during the performance. They are all sad when Will is disqualified. Artie is seen getting ready for the Glee Club yearbook photo, and taking the photo with the club. The picture is later defaced and vandalized by Dave Karofsky. Artie receives a solo in [Smile](/wiki/Smile_(Charlie_Chaplin)). ( [Mattress](/wiki/Mattress)) Artie goes on party line with Mercedes, Tina, Kurt, Brittany, and [Santana](/wiki/Santana_Lopez) after Rachel notices that both Finn and Puck help Quinn get up when she slipped and begins to theorize that Finn might not actually be the father of Quinns baby. The others already knew this was true, but had not told Rachel for fear of her telling Finn. As such they discuss their chances at Sectionals, and their worry that Rachel may tell Finn that Quinns not having his baby. Artie is seen at a Glee Club rehearsal where the club discusses their set list. [Emma Pillsbury](/wiki/Emma_Pillsbury) is appointed as the new Glee Club head and Mercedes performs [And I Am Telling You Im Not Going](/wiki/And_I_Am_Telling_You_I%27m_Not_Going).

    Artie is seen watching Finn punch Puck, and later being loaded onto the special sectionals bus. The club is concerned when the Glee Club has the last performance slot. They watch [Jane Addams Academy](/wiki/Jane_Addams_Academy) and [Haverbrook](/wiki/Haverbrook_School_for_the_Deaf) copy their set list and are shocked and worried. Artie rams himself into a wall repeatedly in frustration and worry when the New Directions meet in the greenroom. Finn returns and the club figures out what to perform. Artie performs background vocals in [You Cant Always Get What You Want](/wiki/You_Can%27t_Always_Get_What_You_Want), and is shown listening in on the judges during their verdict. Despite the behind-the-scenes c onflict, McKinley High wins sectionals. They later perform [My Life Would Suck Without You](/wiki/My_Life_Would_Suck_Without_You) for Will, in which Artie performs background vocals. ( [Sectionals](/wiki/Sectionals_(Episode))) Arties response to answering the phone is Who dis be? and he performs background vocals during [Gives You Hell](/wiki/Gives_You_Hell) and [Hello, Goodbye](/wiki/Hello,_Goodbye). ( [Hell-O](/wiki/Hell-O)) Artie is very disrespectful towards Tina, but forgives her for lying about her stutter and says the only way they can be together is if she changes her gothic appearance.

    This angers Tina who later angrily confronts him which surprises him. Later he apologizes to Tina who gets emotional thinking he hates her, but they kiss and make up. He performs a solo and background vocals in [What It Feels Like For A Girl](/wiki/What_It_Feels_Like_For_A_Girl) and background vocals in [Like a Prayer](/wiki/Like_a_Prayer). ( [The Power of Madonna](/wiki/The_Power_of_Madonna)) Artie performs background vocals in [Home](/wiki/Home_(Stephanie_Mills)) and joins in while Mercedes sings [Beautiful](/wiki/Beautiful). ( [Home](/wiki/Home_(Episode))) Artie, along with Kurt, Tina, Mercedes, and Brittany, is angry about not being on the glist (except Brittany who was angry because she was fourth) so they decide to cause havoc in the library by performing [U Cant Touch This](/wiki/U_Can%27t_Touch_This) in which he performs lead vocals. They still dont get put on the glist after the performance. Artie then tells Kurt to admit it was them that put [Coach Sue](/wiki/Sue_Sylvester)’s rendition of [Physical](/wiki/Physical) on the internet. He is only one who doesnt dance in [Ice Ice Baby](/wiki/Ice_Ice_Baby) because of his disability. ( [Bad Reputation](/wiki/Bad_Reputation)) Artie is seen though the episode in the background.

    He also sings background vocals in [One](/wiki/One_(U2)). ( [Laryngitis](/wiki/Laryngitis)) Arties, crumples it, and throws it in the garbage as an example that their dreams will never happen. [Bryan Ryan](/wiki/Bryan_Ryan) asks the Glee Club to write down their biggest dreams on a sheet of paper. He takes [Tina](/wiki/Tina_Cohen-Chang)admits that she looked at his paper and read that his biggest dream is to become a dancer. Tina really wants to help Artie fulfill his dream and wants to perform a dance number for an assignment. They practice a soft shoe number with taps on Arties wheels. Artie tries to stand after 8 years in a wheelchair and after a few steps, falls. Embarrassed, Artie blames Tina for encouraging him. Later, Tina apologizes. She said she has done research to cure Arties condition. She tells not to give up hope. While at the mall, Tina leaves to buy a snack. Artie imagines himself dancing in flash mob singing [Safety Dance](/wiki/Safety_Dance). Artie asks Emma to help him cope during the processes for him to walk. Emma looks at the research papers and tells him that he wont be able to walk for a really long time. Emma can see how disappointed Artie is at the news. Later, Artie tells Tina that he is okay with the fact that he wont be able to walk again and that hell work on a dream that he can actually make come true.

    Tina ends up dancing with [Mike Chang](/wiki/Mike_Chang). During the dance Artie sings [Dream a Little Dream](/wiki/Dream_a_Little_Dream). ( [Dream On](/wiki/Dream_On_(Episode))) Rachel comes into the music room with news that [Vocal Adrenaline](/wiki/Vocal_Adrenaline) is doing Lady Gaga. Along with Kurt, and female members of [New Directions](/wiki/New_Directions), Artie is worried. When Will announces that they will be doing Gaga too, Artie seems happy, but when Finn confronts Schue about the guys doing KISS, Arties on board. Artie is seen watching the girls perform [Bad Romance](/wiki/Bad_Romance) and, later, he sings [Shout It out Loud](/wiki/Shout_It_out_Loud). He later sings [Beth](/wiki/Beth_(Song)) when Puck suggests a name for his and Quinns daughter. He also defends Kurt from the [football players](/wiki/Football_Team). ( [Theatricality](/wiki/Theatricality)) Artie is down after [Jesses](/wiki/Jesse_St._James) return to Vocal Adrenaline. He is also seen watching [Vocal Adrenaline](/wiki/Vocal_Adrenaline) sing [Another One Bites the Dust](/wiki/Another_One_Bites_the_Dust), and sings background vocals in [Give up the Funk](/wiki/Give_up_the_Funk). ( [Funk](/wiki/Funk)) [To Sir, With Love](/wiki/To_Sir,_With_Love), everyone including Artie reveals what they before Will and the Glee Club.

    Artie said that a year ago he never even kissed a girl. When Will tells the club that [Principal Figgins](/wiki/Principal_Figgins)is letting the Glee Club run for one more year, Artie is seen cheering. He watches Will and Pucks performance of [Over The Rainbow](/wiki/Over_The_Rainbow). He also holds hands with Tina and looks at her lovingly. ( [Journey](/wiki/Journey)) Tina breaks up with him because she fell in love with Mike Chang and because he hasnt been an attentive boyfriend. Artie is desperate, and asks Finn to help him to get on the football team, in hopes that Tina will like him again if hed be more like Mike. Finn is unsure at first, but he finds Arties idea of him being like a human battering ram great and agrees to help him. However, upon seeing Artie, [Coach Beiste](/wiki/Shannon_Beiste) accuses Finn of trying to make her seem like a monster when she has to reject a disabled student and kicks him out of the team. He is also seen sadly watching Tina and Mike dance, and rapping in [Billionaire](/wiki/Billionaire). ( [Audition](/wiki/Audition)) Artie agrees with Kurt on the idea of doing Britney Spears that week. When Emmas boyfriend, [Dr. Carl Howell](/wiki/Carl_Howell), comes to teach the kids proper dental hygiene, Artie learns he doesnt take care of his teeth.

    He states that he could possibly take care of them better if he could see himself in the mirror. At his check-up, he has an anesthesia-induced Britney dream of Britney Spears herself telling Tina that shes stupid for dumping Artie for Mike. She begs him to come back, but Artie says hes stronger without her. Following this, Artie performs [Stronger](/wiki/Stronger) with [the football team](/wiki/Football_Team). After the visit, we see Artie is more confident. Later, Beiste allows Artie to join the football team, fulfilling his dream. ( [Britney/Brittany](/wiki/Britney/Brittany)) Artie scores a touchdown at their schools football game after Finn wishes that they would win the football game for Artie. Artie is seen watching Mercedes performance of [I Look to You](/wiki/I_Look_to_You), Finns version of [Losing My Religion](/wiki/Losing_My_Religion), and Puck singing [Only the Good Die Young](/wiki/Only_the_Good_Die_Young). He also sings background vocals in [One of Us](/wiki/One_of_Us). Also he is seen a few times rolling his eyes at Finns revelation and he looks sympathetic towards Kurt. ( [Grilled Cheesus](/wiki/Grilled_Cheesus)) Artie is still trying to get over Tina. Brittany admits having feelings for him, and they start going out.

    Tina says that she wants to sing a duet with Artie because Mike refuses to, but Artie tells her that he is going out with Brittany. When Artie is at Brittanys house, Artie tells Brittany that he cant continue the relationship as he is not over Tina. Brittany has sex with him in hopes that it helps him get over Tina, thus losing his virginity. When he finds that the sex meant almost nothing to Brittany, according to [Santana](/wiki/Santana_Lopez), he becomes upset. He tells her that he feels that she was using him for his voice to gain an edge in the competition. Brittany is astounded by what Artie said and tries to save the relationship by saying that she specifically wanted to go to [Breadstix](/wiki/Breadstix) with Artie and re-enact the scene from The Lady and the Tramp and she has been practicing nudging meatballs with her nose. He then says that since he lost the use of his legs, no one was sure if he would be able to have sex. When they found he could, he felt it was like a miracle and Brittanys nonchalant attitude towards it ruined that feeling for him. Brittany apologizes saying she had no idea how much it meant to him, but he ended the relationship anyway and pulls them both out of the duets competition.

    We see Brittany really liked Artie because she is seen sadly watching as he passes by in hallway with Finn. She is also seen alone at Breadstix moving a meatball with her nose. Even though he didnt compete in the duets competition, Artie still voted for himself to go to Breadstix. ( [Duets](/wiki/Duets)) Will told [the kids](/wiki/New_Directions) that will perform a play of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Artie played Dr. Scott and a Transylvanian. Artie is also present at Dr. Howells audition of [Whatever Happened to Saturday Night?](/wiki/Whatever_Happened_to_Saturday_Night%3F). Artie also sings background vocals and gets two solos in [The Time Warp](/wiki/The_Time_Warp). Artie and Brittany seem fine after their break-up because they showed no sign of anger towards the other. ( [The Rocky Horror Glee Show](/wiki/The_Rocky_Horror_Glee_Show)) Artie is being scolded by Coach Beiste to wear a cup on the field which leads to Sam finding his mailman. Puck tells Artie that he is his community service. Puck helps Artie to become cooler, first, by telling him to sing for profit. They sing [One Love (People Get Ready)](/wiki/One_Love_(People_Get_Ready)) together. Later, Puck teaches him how to get Brittany back by acting mean to her.

    The boys double date with Santana and Brittany. While at Breadstix, Artie pretends that the waitress is into him, even though she is way older than him. While at dinner, Brittany hits on him. After the meal, Puck and the girls plan to ditch the bill. Artie does not follow through, and pays anyway. Puck becomes angry because he taught Artie his secrets and he still doesnt do it. After Puck has a fit in Principal Figgins office, Artie comforts him and says that since Puck taught him some new tricks and that he will tutor him in geometry. The two have solos in [Stop! In the Name of Love/Free Your Mind](/wiki/Stop!_In_the_Name_of_Love/Free_Your_Mind). ( [Never Been Kissed](/wiki/Never_Been_Kissed)) Artie enjoys [Holly Holliday](/wiki/Holly_Holliday)s care-free, modern teachings, but helps the [others](/wiki/New_Directions) in getting Mr. Schues job back. While Will hallucinates, we see Artie as a child, still sitting in the wheelchair. He is present at [Rachel](/wiki/Rachel_Berry)s and Holly performance of [Nowadays/Hot Honey Rag](/wiki/Nowadays/Hot_Honey_Rag). He sings background vocals and has solos in [Forget You](/wiki/Forget_You) and [Singing in the Rain/Umbrella](/wiki/Singing_in_the_Rain/Umbrella).

    ( [The Substitute](/wiki/The_Substitute)) While at Rachels Girlfriends of Football Players Intervention meeting, Brittany tells Tina that she is indeed dating Artie. Artie and Mike stand up to Karofsky in a two-man intervention. Karofsky loses it, causing Artie to flip over and Mike helping him. Artie is present at Burt and Caroles wedding. He has a solo in [Marry You](/wiki/Marry_You). He dances with Brittany during [Just the Way You Are](/wiki/Just_the_Way_You_Are). He is seen being upset when Kurt decides to leave McKinley for Dalton. ( [Furt](/wiki/Furt)) Artie and Tina believe that Brittany and Mike are cheating on them with each other. When Brittany believes shell fail at sectionals, Artie gives her a magic comb to help, even though it was just an old comb he found before meeting her. When Artie tells Brittany that she is guilty of adultery (a puzzling use of the word later revealed to be a setup for a blonde joke) runs off. Rachel, Artie, and Tina refuse to go on because of their relationship problems. Later, Brittany tells Artie that she thought he meant a-dolt-ery, meaning she is stupid for losing the comb. They forgive and kiss. ( [Special Education](/wiki/Special_Education)) Artie and New Directions try to reinforce [Brittany](/wiki/Brittany_Pierce)s belief in Santa Claus.

    Her wish to Santa is that Artie can walk. Artie freaks out because Brittany will be sad if Artie cant walk on Christmas morning. The two are seen happily singing in [The Most Wonderful Day of the Year](/wiki/The_Most_Wonderful_Day_of_the_Year). Later in the episode, Brittany becomes depressed when, the night before, Santa told her that Artie will not walk this Christmas and she needs to have patience. When Artie takes Brittany home because she isnt feeling well, they find a gift. When Tina and the gang comes back from caroling, they find Artie walking. This is accomplished after he received an expensive piece of technology, the ReWalk, from an anonymous Santa. Brittanys Christmas wish—and Arties dream—came true. However it has now been revealed that the ReWalk broke shortly after. ( [A Very Glee Christmas](/wiki/A_Very_Glee_Christmas)) Artie was present during the football game and witnessed the fight between Finn and Karofsky. Later, the entire football (minus the ones in Glee Club) cornered him with red and orange slushies. Artie isnt supportive of Mr. Schue and [Coach Beiste](/wiki/Shannon_Beiste)s decision to let the football team be in Glee club. He watches Puck and Rachel sing [Need You Now](/wiki/Need_You_Now).

    He practices Zombie 101 with New Directions and the football team and sings background vocals in [Shes Not There](/wiki/She%27s_Not_There). Later, when most of the hockey team shows up with slushies, he cowers behind Finn, but gets slushied anyway.

    While Artie was spiking the punch, he is caught by Sue. After Sue interrogates him, and threatens to pull out his molars, saying: No, Im just going to attempt to give you a simple cleaning, Artie admits that all he wants to do is to dance with Brittany once and that he didnt actually spike the punch with alcohol, but with lemonade.

He muses over how much power it gives him, even over stuff he knows nothing about. We see Rachel trying to find the right dress for Maria and Artie being difficult. Later Artie rolls up to Coach Beiste, who is welding a part of the set for the musical.

    Artie jumps right to the point and asks why Coach Beiste was so uncomfortable while he was confronting Blaine and Rachel. She admits to being a virgin, even though she has her sights set on [Cooter Menkins](/wiki/Cooter_Menkins). She says that it doesnt matter if she has interest in anyone, as she believes they could never like her back. Next time we see Artie, he is seeking out Cooter. They go to the set of West Side Story and Artie demands to know whether he likes Coach Beiste - he says that he does, and that he had asked her out, but she refused every time. Artie tells him to ask her out again, but this time, be obvious. We next see him at the opening night of West Side Story, Artie rolls by and talks to them briefly, but quickly leaves as his own nerves kick in. He tells Miss Pillsbury that he doesnt know what hes doing and he did everything in the play wrong. It is just then that the cast confronts him - he is scared, but they actually thank him - they say the entire show is thanks to his hard work and that they couldnt have done it without them.

He is next seen in Sues office with Kurt and Blaine as she asks them to help volunteer at a homeless shelter on Friday night. The boys are confused about why she wants to help homeless people, having said she doesnt believe in them and called them urban campers. She reveals to them that she doesnt want to spend Christmas by herself as it is the first Christmas after her sister died, wanting to keep occupied. Kurt tells her that they are happy to help, and she then kicks them out of her office. Artie is later asked to direct the Glee Clubs Christmas Special, he is talking with the Manager, him stating how proud he is to have a disabled boy directing the special, accidentally comparing him to Tiny Tim to which Artie replies with saying he will ignore that in the spirit of Christmas. He tells the manager that he has two demands, the first one coming from a dream with Chewbacca saying its not Christmas without him, linking to a Star Wars special in 1978, and the entire show is going to be in black and white linking it to Judy Garland Holiday Special.

    He agrees to as long as he can produce it without going over $800. In the April Rhodes Civic Pavilion, Rachel begins to sing [River](/wiki/River) in what seems to be an audition to be in Arties holiday special. When she finishes Artie calls her over and tells her that it was too depressing and didnt relate to his vision of the holiday special which is full of cheerful songs, with Rory dressing as Itchy the Elf and reciting a happier version of Frosty the Snowman. Sam finds this not true to what else makes Christmas special which is remembering whats really important and tells him he doesnt want any part in it and asks Rory to come with him as he leaves to which Rory replies, I should memorize my part, Sam. Blaine and Rachel perform [Extraordinary Merry Christmas](/wiki/Extraordinary_Merry_Christmas_(Song)), wanting to impress Artie so she gets a big part in the show. He is seen enjoying the performance, and agrees to put it in the show. Arties Christmas Spectacular goes extremely well. The holiday spectacular begins in Star Wars style, showing each and every one of the members of the club, excluding Sam and Quinn. Blaine sits at a window watching as the snow comes down and he and Kurt begin to sing [Let It Snow](/wiki/Let_It_Snow).

    When they finish they notice guests and welcome them into their home and begin to act cheesy. Rachel and Mercedes then enter with gifts. Mercedes gives Kurt a necklace which he was bidding for during the show. Rachel gives Blaine a bow tie with Christmas trees and candy cane striped pants. They then begin to sing [My Favorite Things](/wiki/My_Favorite_Things). After Blaine points out that if the snow continues that Santa Claus wont be able to deliver their presents. They hear jingle bells and they open the door to reveal Puck and Finn in Star Wars outfits, making sure that they arent purposefully dressed as Star Wars characters. They begin to sing [Santa Claus Is Coming To Town](/wiki/Santa_Claus_Is_Coming_To_Town). When they finish the doorbell rings and Brittany, with Tina, Mike, Santana and other Cheerios, sings [Christmas Wrapping](/wiki/Christmas_Wrapping). They hear another bell when Brittany finishes, [Rory](/wiki/Rory_Flanagan) enters dressed as Itchy and tells then that instead of reading Frosty he reads verses from the Bible, reminding the club what Christmas really is. Artie later comes in to the homeless shelter and performs [Do They Know Its Christmas?](/wiki/Do_They_Know_It%27s_Christmas%3F) with the rest of the New Directions.

    ( [Extraordinary Merry Christmas](/wiki/Extraordinary_Merry_Christmas_(Episode))) Artie is eager to prepare a number for the assignment Will gave to the Glee Club (help him come up with a proposal number for Emma). He asks Sugar if shed like to work with him, but she declines, so Artie prepares the number by himself. He suggests a song, [Moves Like Jagger/Jumpin Jack Flash](/wiki/Moves_Like_Jagger/Jumpin%27_Jack_Flash), for the proposal, but Will thinks that moving so much and thus getting sweaty during that song would turn Emma off, and so he decides against it. He later demands from Will to make a decision on which song he wants to sing instead. When the Glee Club finally settles on [We Found Love](/wiki/We_Found_Love) for the proposal, he is involved in the number. Whilst the fellow Glee Club boys jump into the pool from the pool edge, Artie rolls into it including his wheelchair. He then gets lifted onto an inflatable chair where he spends the rest of the performance. Meanwhile he gets asked out on a date by [Becky Jackson](/wiki/Becky_Jackson), who feels connected to him since they are both handicapped. Artie thus takes her to the [The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion](/wiki/The_April_Rhodes_Civic_Pavilion) to watch him how he performs [Moves Like Jagger/Jumpin Jack Flash](/wiki/Moves_Like_Jagger/Jumpin%27_Jack_Flash).

    He says that he doesnt want to go out with her after that, because he had only promised her one date and considers taking her to watch his performance that one date, but Becky manages to persuade him to go eat with her at Breadstix. On one of the following days he gets confronted by his fellow Glee-Club, who say that they arent okay with him dating Becky since she is Sues protégé. Artie thus accuses them of not being accepting and defends the girl, stating that he likes her, that he had a nice time with her, and that he admires her for having a positive view of life despite being born with a disability. Becky hunts Artie down the following day and asks him to come to her house the following Friday, since she wants to take their relationship to the next base. She adds, that, as a foretaste, she sent him certain stuff. After the girl leaves him, he checks his mobile phone, only to find obnoxious stuff on it. Disenchanted by this, Artie goes to see Sue Sylvester for advice. The cheerleading coach tells him, that if he doesnt want to be with Becky anymore, he should tell her the truth, since the girl wont be able to move on unless he does so. Following that piece of advice, Artie talks to Becky and tells her that he doesnt want to be with her and can only imagine being friends with her at the most, hence leaving Becky very sad.

    ( [Yes/No](/wiki/Yes/No)) Artie is revealed to be an avid Michael Jackson fan. He recounts how he spoke his first words while watching Michael Jackson do the moonwalk and swears his admiration to the king of pop again the following day in the choir room. When [New Directions](/wiki/New_Directions) have a [Diva-Off](/wiki/Diva-Off) against the [Warblers](/wiki/Warblers), he sings lead vocals to [Bad](/wiki/Bad). [Sebastian Smythe](/wiki/Sebastian_Smythe)pours a slushie into Blaines vision. He explains that he is having these outbursts because he is sick of them being treated in such a fashion. He wants to take revenge on [Sebastian](/wiki/Sebastian_Smythe)so badly, he even considers using violence. He doesnt even let himself be calmed down by Will, who tries to convince his pupils that violence is not a solution. This is followed by a dream-sequence in which Artie wants to know from his mates who shares his opinion. Mike stands up for that matter, and so does Artie out of his wheelchair. Together they perform [Scream](/wiki/Scream). He is later revealed to have worked together with Santana. While the latter had visited the [Dalton Academy](/wiki/Dalton_Academy)to confront [Sebastian](/wiki/Sebastian_Smythe), Artie had a recorder prepared in her bra, which enabled them to tape the confession which Sebastian made about preparing the slushie that hit Blaine with rock-salt.

    He hopes to get Sebastian expelled from his school that way, though this doesnt happen, because [New Directions](/wiki/New_Directions)agree on beating him fair. He does however confront [Sebastian](/wiki/Sebastian_Smythe) with the others later. They explain to the [Warblers](/wiki/Warblers), that they arent going to do Michael Jackson songs for [Regionals](/wiki/Regionals_(Competition)). When [Sebastian](/wiki/Sebastian_Smythe) laughs at them, he explains that there is more to doing Michael Jackson than just singing his songs and that he cant do it. In an attempt to show how it really works, he sings [Black or White](/wiki/Black_or_White). ( [Michael](/wiki/Michael)) Artie can be seen performing as a torero in the beginning during class. He next thing is present when Sue asks the [New Directions Boys](/wiki/New_Directions_Boys) whod like to father her child, though she immediately counts Artie out because hes in a wheelchair. Thereupon he angrily explains that he wasnt born with the handicap. He later engages in the choreography to [Bamboleo/Hero](/wiki/Bamboleo/Hero). ( [The Spanish Teacher](/wiki/The_Spanish_Teacher)) Arties crush on Sugar is further explored. As soon as she announces that she is having a party at Breadstix where she only wants people to attend with a date, he immediately plans to make Sugar his date.

    When Rory announces that he has the same purpose, Artie tries to make him back off, declaring that he wants the girl for himself and Rory shows a four-leafed clover. Over the next couple of days he makes several attempts to make Sugar his date. First thing, he presents her with a candy heart, but Rory outmatches that gift with a bag full of candy hearts. At his second attempt, he outbids Rory, who had a heart pillow saying BE MINE by making heart-shaped confetti rain on top of the girl when she opens her locker. At last he tries to win her by presenting her with a toy-puppy, but Rory does better once more when he gives her a real puppy. Since things look rather bad for him now, he tries to win Sugar over with a song, and performs [Let Me Love You](/wiki/Let_Me_Love_You) with the [New Directions Boys](/wiki/New_Directions_Boys) backup for her. Impressed by the song, Sugar shows him his affection by hopping on his lap and asking him to roll her to class, indicating that for now she wants Artie to be her date. Artie, however, loses to Rory in the end, when the latter manages to gain her pity by singing [Home](/wiki/Home_(Michael_Bubl%C3%A9)) and whining in front of the entire Glee Club, leaving Artie without [Sugar](/wiki/Sugar_Motta) or a date.

    He can be seen staring heartbroken at Sugar and Rory during the Sugar Shack. ( [Heart](/wiki/Heart)) Artie can be seen with the New Directions while they are discussing Sebastians blackmailing, whilst they are performing at [Regionals](/wiki/Regionals_(Competition)) and waiting for the wedding ceremony at the end. Hes there when the group discusses David Karofskys suicide attempt. When [Will](/wiki/Will_Schuester) asks the New Directions what they are looking forward to in their lives, he says, that its his dream to see his children take their first steps. ( [On My Way](/wiki/On_My_Way)) Artie helps Quinn come to terms with her new situation, which is being stuck in a wheelchair. When Finn and Rachel reunite with Quinn for the first time after her accident, Artie is by her side and seems to have become friends with her. After talking to them, Quinn prompts him to roll to the choir room with her, where they perform [Im Still Standing](/wiki/I%27m_Still_Standing). After the song, Quinn remarks how her dance moves in a wheelchair arent as smooth as Arties yet whereupon he encourages her that they will be at some stage. Later on, he practices using the wheelchair ramp with her. Quinn thinks at first that she is unable to drive up the slope, but with Arties encouragement, she does manage it.

    Afterwards, he invites Quinn to spend senior ditch day with him instead of the other seniors, saying that going to an amusement park when youre sitting in a wheelchair can be frustrating, which Quinn accepts. She even prefers doing things with Artie, although Finn wouldnt have minded taking her along with him and the others. So together they go to a skate park, which is, as Artie explains, the place where wheelchair bound kids spend senior-ditch day. Together they perform [Up Up Up](/wiki/Up_Up_Up) at the rink, while they drive around making stunts. When Artie remarks that Quinn has spent time with people in the same situation as she is in, Quinn denies it saying that she is only temporarily paralyzed. Thereupon Artie tells her that she should stop denying that she might be debilitated for the rest of her life, causing an argument. Quinn announces that she isnt him, that she isnt changing her plans for the future, and that shes going to walk again one day. She leaves Arties last question (And what if you dont? When are you going to stop resenting that this isnt really happening to you?) unanswered. ( [Big Brother](/wiki/Big_Brother)) Artie participates in the dancing competition, whose winner is rewarded with a suit similar to that John Travolta wore in Saturday Night Fever.

    When the sex tape of Santana and Brittany appears on the internet, Artie says to Santanas face how much he enjoyed watching it. ( [Saturday Night Glee-ver](/wiki/Saturday_Night_Glee-ver)) Artie seems to be profoundly enjoying the performances of [I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)](/wiki/I_Wanna_Dance_with_Somebody_(Who_Loves_Me)) and [So Emotional](/wiki/So_Emotional). Towards the end of the show, he is seen first with Mercedes performing [My Love Is Your Love](/wiki/My_Love_Is_Your_Love) and is later joined with the rest of the New Directions. ( [Dance with Somebody](/wiki/Dance_with_Somebody)) Artie is part of the group that wants to try and bring back Puck to McKinley to help him pass his test and graduate. When Finn explains his plan to [the others](/wiki/New_Directions_Boys), Arties role was meant to be The bait. He was meant to roll into a pool with his wheelchair to distract Puck, but since the latter walked through the door that very second, it never happened. Artie then agrees to help Puck study for the test he needs to pass in order to graduate. He can be seen later on studying with the others in the middle of the night, and tells them not to give up because they still have 9 hours to study.

    He bursts into the performance of [The Rain in Spain](/wiki/The_Rain_in_Spain) together with his friends and pulls their attention back to the subject material after the song is over. He is also there to confront Puck after he takes his test and is one person to receive thanks from him. ( [Choke](/wiki/Choke)) Artie attends the prom, but doesnt play a major part in it. His only time in the spotlight is when he performs [What Makes You Beautiful](/wiki/What_Makes_You_Beautiful) with Sam, Rory, Mike, and Joe. He gets lifted out of his wheelchair by Sam when the group receives applause from the attendees. He presumably hangs out with Rory and Joe throughout the prom since he can be seen dancing and taking a picture with them. When Puck announces that he is going to attend Rachels anti-prom, he wonders what happened to his plan to spike the punch with alcohol, for which he almost lost his teeth the year before. ( [Prom-asaurus](/wiki/Prom-asaurus)) Artie insults Tina as Rachel in the persona of Santana, sarcastically hoping that she doesnt choke on her solo rehearsal like she did on her NYADA audition. He enjoys Tina-as-Rachels [Because You Loved Me](/wiki/Because_You_Loved_Me) and kissed Mercedes-as-Brittany when Tina-as-Rachel performed that song.

    After Tina is pulled from the fountain, everything is back to normal. He is shown enjoying Rachel and Tinas [Flashdance... What a Feeling](/wiki/Flashdance..._What_a_Feeling) on the bus, sung before they set off, ready to take on Nationals.

He is present when the seniors perform [You Get What You Give](/wiki/You_Get_What_You_Give)to the juniors, sophomores, and freshmen, and Rachel, Mercedes, and Quinn share major interaction with him thereby. When it is the non-seniors turn and they sing [In My Life](/wiki/In_My_Life), he announces that the song is a thank you to Finn because he sacrificed and plead himself for them so much.

    Artie is present with the other underclassmen at graduation cheering on his friends that graduated. He also is at the station in the final scene when the New Directions bid farewell from Rachel. ( [Goodbye](/wiki/Goodbye)) Artie is seen being interviewed by [Jacob](/wiki/Jacob_Ben_Israel)in the beginning of the episode, and it reveals that Artie had been seen sitting with the [Cheerios](/wiki/Cheerios)at lunch, most likely meaning that he was a part of the popular crowd. When interviewed again with the rest of New Directions, he also responds I am when Jacob asked who was the new [Rachel Berry](/wiki/Rachel_Berry). Artie was chosen to pick who would be the new Rachel, and watches as [Tina](/wiki/Tina_Cohen-Chang), [Blaine](/wiki/Blaine_Anderson), [Unique](/wiki/Unique_Adams), and [Brittany](/wiki/Brittany_Pierce)perform for the spot through [Call Me Maybe](/wiki/Call_Me_Maybe). He is present at the auditions for Glee Club, sitting next to [Will](/wiki/Will_Schuester) as the auditions go on. Later, when he enters the [choir room](/wiki/The_Choir_Room), Tina attempts to bribe him for the spot as the new Rachel, but in the end, Blaine is selected by Artie. Artie sang [Chasing Pavements](/wiki/Chasing_Pavements) with [New Directions](/wiki/New_Directions) at the end of the episode.

    ( [The New Rachel](/wiki/The_New_Rachel)) When Mr. Shue announces that it is Britney 2.0 week, he has Blaine and Artie perform the mash-up [Boys/Boyfriend](/wiki/Boys/Boyfriend).
