And now cut to Quinn's bedroom, where she's helping Puck study. He's completely lacking in confidence and certain he'll fail. He tries to ditch, but she tells him that she loves him, 'cause he was her first. She cares about him, and they're connected for life. She reminds him that when he got into her pants, he was full of confidence. He needs to find that again and he'll pass the test. And since one thing this show has taught us is that female sexuality is a gift that women give to men (rather than, you know, something for themselves to enjoy), she kisses him to give him his confidence back.
And her kiss is magic, as Puck's voiceover tells us while he's swaggering into the classroom to take the retest.
Sue's office. Sue is polishing a giant trophy while rubbing it into Black Sue's skin that she, White Sue, retains sole control of the Cheerios. Who apparently won another national championship since the last episode. After they finish insulting each other, Black Sue admits defeat. But she also suggests that the two of them work together to get rid of Figgins, since they both think it's a crime that such an idiot runs the school. White Sue and Black Sue working together for evil? I knew integration wasn't always a good thing.
And then Quinn arrives. She's there to return her Cheerios uniform. Shouldn't she have done that when she quit the team last year? Oh, this is all just an excuse for an emotional scene in which Sue tells Quinn that she admires her for being slightly less evil than Sue. Sure, that all makes sense. Commercials.
Puck, Finn, Mike Chang, Kurt, Santana and Rachel pace outside the office of Puck's geography teacher. Quinn arrives to ask what's going on. Wasn't she the one who helped him study? Shouldn't she have known when he was taking the test? In any case, they're all assembled to wait for the geography teacher to grade the test. And then she does, and gives it to Puck, who is thrilled to see that he passed. Which means he can graduate!
In the weirdest graduation ceremony ever. Puck sings Bruce Springsteen's "Glory Days," while Figgins calls out the names of New Directions seniors in random, non-alphabetical order. And the graduates then walk out from the wings and join all their classmates on the stage. Also, there are apparently fewer than 100 graduates. Maybe this is the special graduation ceremony for kids who have overcome great adversity and/or have tearjerking stories? And all the normal kids went through a more sane and traditional graduation ceremony? Sure, that'll do. (And I just realized that the strange woman standing next to Quinn's mother is Puck's mom. Way to reach back into the first season casting file, show! But Rachel's dads aren't there. Because it's not like they have Jeff Goldblum money for more than one episode.)
