Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Community is an Ensemble Cast Sitcom, created by Dan Harmon. It first aired on NBC from 2009-2014, then was promptly Uncancelled and streamed a sixth and final season on Yahoo! Screen in 2015.Joel McHale stars as Jeff Winger, an Amoral Attorney who got caught playing fast and loose with the truth... this time in regards to his college degree. In an attempt to get a legitimate(ish) degree without doing any work, he's enrolled in the local community college. He quickly attempts to get in good with Britta (Gillian Jacobs), a girl from his Spanish 101 class, by pretending to be a "board-certified Spanish tutor" who can help her study. Things go awry, however, when she invites their mutual acquaintance, the socially challenged Abed (Danny Pudi), to their fake study group. Abed, in turn, invites some of their other classmates — ex-high school football star Troy (Donald Glover), compulsive overachiever Annie (Alison Brie), single mother Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown), and not-quite-as-smart-or-with-it-as-he-thinks moist-towelette magnate Pierce (Chevy Chase) — leading to the organization of the cast's Ragtag Bunch of Misfits.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Each season features the study group taking a class together with some sort of underlying theme. In the first season, it was Spanish and was built around the study group members learning to communicate with each other; in the second season, it was Anthropology, which highlighted the group growing into a tight-knit "tribe"; and in the third season, it was Biology, feeding into the group struggling with their capacity to evolve. The fourth season was History, with the group coming to terms with their pasts but also realizing how much they've grown. The fifth season revolves around the characters returning to the school after some time having failed to make much of their lives outside the school, and decide to form the "Save Greendale" committee in order to both improve the school overall and to find meaning in their lives. The sixth season had a "moving on" theme, acceptance both of where you are and of change and the realization that it's okay for things to end.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The show's humor is driven by the character interaction, supplemented by rampant lampshade hangings. As a side effect of this, the trope examples will be very quote-driven.Dan Harmon - whose work ethic and perfectionism had made for constant battles with the network, the production studio, and star Chevy Chase (who infamously left a hate-filled tirade on his voicemail) - ultimately got fired off his own show at the end of the third season, replaced by producers Moses Port and David Guarascio (known for Just Shoot Me! and Happy Endings). After the fourth season, the show was renewed and Harmon hired back as showrunner for season five. Chevy Chase had left at the end of season four, leaving the show bringing in Jonathan Banks guest-starring as an unofficial replacement, and Donald Glover departed after five episodes for personal reasons. NBC officially canceled the show after season five, but was picked up by Yahoo Screen! for a sixth season. Yvette Nicole Brown left to focus on taking care of her ailing father (ultimately guest-starring in the season's premiere and finale) Keith David and Paget Brewster were added to the cast for the sixth season as new main characters, but only billed as supporting players in the show's credits.For the longest time, fans held out hope for "six seasons and a movie." In spite of the low television ratings, notoriously Troubled Production, firing-then-rehiring of its creator, departure of three cast members and raising the profile of several actors/resurrecting careers, the show got to end on its own terms on June 2, 2015, though the people involved are still pushing for a chance to do the long-awaited film.The writers of the show are aware of this very wiki, (Dan Harmon has been quoted on Twitter as having used to be on TVTropes "Religiously,") and often use it for research.The show also has its own Community Tumblr. Vote here for the best episode.

Stereotype Flip: Señor Chang the Spanish teacher goes on at great length about this. He does embrace the Asian love of gambling displayed in the pool episode when he takes bets from the surrounding crowd, though. In "Basic Genealogy," it is revealed that Señor Chang's brother is a Rabbi. This is lampshaded by Dean Pelton (though he also mistakenly assumes that the Changs are Japanese).

invokedCreator Breakdown: Parodied when Vaughn breaks up with Britta, he cowrites a song called "Getting Rid of Britta" that consists of the refrain "She's a GDB" sung multiple times. In Documentary Filmmaking Redux Dean Pelton completely breaks down trying to film a commercial for Greendale, and warps the entire school around, canceling all classes. Abed decided to document the whole thing because he predicted this would happen. The whole episode is a parody of Hearts of Darkness, which gets lampshaded repeatedly.

Creator Cameo: The season 1 finale has Dean Pelton mention a nominee for Queen of the Transfer Dance called Danielle Harmon. Dan Harmon can be seen on the far right of the "old-timey" photograph at the end of "Introduction to Bondage and Beta Male Sexuality," just before the camera zooms in on the left side. Harmon's face is used in the season 3 illustration of English Memorial, the Portuguese sailor who was looking for a fountain that cures syphilis. Harmon performs the legal disclaimer at the end of the Season 6 finale.

The first season deals more heavily with Jeff's transition from lawyer to student, and the group is fairly unfamiliar with each other. By the second season, Jeff is comfortably a student and the group members are true companions, plus or minus Pierce.

He has a second one in "Biology 101" after all the characters in "Cougarton Abbey" kill themselves after only six episodes. He recovers when Britta shows him Inspector Spacetime. Troy has one in "Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking" when he meets LeVar Burton in person instead of just getting an autographed picture.

Debut Queue: The first season has a variation: A conscious effort was made in the first seven episodes to focus on each character of the study group in turn for an episode. In the order they aired: Jeff is introduced in the the first episode of which he is the focus. In the following episodes, he... ...partners with Pierce on a class project. ...helps Abed enter a film class. ...bonds with Shirley over gossip. ...defends Britta on a cheating charge. ...reintroduces Troy to his football past. ...and helps Annie with her Halloween party. Season six introduces two new characters to the study group. The first episode introduces Frankie, while the second episode is the introduction and first appearance of Elroy

Chaos Architecture: In the pilot, the study room is not on the ground floor, but it is for the rest of the series. It is revealed in Digital Exploration of Interior Design that every Greendale student has a locker. Lockers haven't been seen in the series at all up until this moment. In Laws of Robotics and Party Rights, Greendale how suddenly has a parking garage, while up until this point everyone has been parking outdoors (as seen in every episode up until and including the season premiere Ladders).

Abed mentions that talking about people like they're in a TV show is his gimmick and that they "leaned pretty hard on that last week." He then says that he "can lay low for an episode." Abed is not featured in the episode after that, except when he avoids talking to the study group and Britta explains, "he's just laying low."

Celebrity Resemblance
 Community / int_1af2b763
comment
Celebrity Resemblance: As noted by both Abed and Jeff, Britta looks like Elisabeth Shue. Troy notes that the Dean looks like Moby. The Fake Dean says he is sick of being a Moby impersonator. The actor who played the Fake Dean played a character on How I Met Your Mother who was also mistaken for Moby. An unseen biracial character is alternately described as a black Michael Chiklis and a white George Foreman. In the same exchange Jeff calls Abed "brown Jamie Lee Curtis." In "Contemporary Impressionists", the study group are all hired to work as celebrity impersonators — Troy and Britta are both Michael Jackson (young MJ and old MJ, respectively), Annie is Judy Garland, Shirley is Oprah Winfrey (in an earlier episode she was compared unfavorably with Ms. Winfrey), Jeff is Ryan Seacrest (Joel McHale's real-life "arch-nemesis"), Abed is (brown) Jamie Lee Curtis, and Pierce is Fat Marlon Brando, although he insists that he looks more like Burt Reynolds. Lampshaded, The person who notes these resemblances is a French Stewart impersonator played by...French Stewart. Shirley can like sound like Miss Piggy, especially when she's trying to sound sweet, lampshaded at the Halloween party when her costume was mistaken for Miss Piggy.

Mr. Fanservice: Jeff. Particularly in that episode when he played pool. Troy's Dracula costume (shirtless with a toilet seat cover as a collar and toilet paper cuffs) during season 2's Halloween episode "Epidemiology." Donald Glover running around cracking wise and fighting zombies without a shirt is nothing to complain about. All the guys, except Pierce, stripping down to their underwear in "Cooperative Calligraphy." Especially, and surprisingly, Abed.

Reality Ensues: Not often but now and then, the show gets its laughs showcasing just how nuts these events are in real life. Jeff manages to get the school's show choir shut down because in real life, a small school show choir could never afford the rights to so many major songs. During the Law and Order episode Troy and Abed catch Starburns and start interrogating him. He gets up and walks out when he remembers they're not actually cops. Chang was able to get a restraining order against Professor Duncan after the man used 'his' restraining order against Chang in order to deliberately harass the man and follow him around.

The Friends Who Never Hang
 Community / int_1ed73929
comment
The Friends Who Never Hang: Shirley and Troy didn't have a B-Plot together until the fourth season. Yvette-Nicole Brown (Shirley's actress) noted this in the DVD commentary for a season three episode where Troy gave a heartfelt goodbye to Shirley, although the two never spent time together on-screen. They also rarely spoke to one another directly even when the group was all together around the study room. This could be read as an attempt to avert any potential Unfortunate Implications of having the only two African-American members of the group hang out all the time, except that it's gone a bit far the other way. Shirley and Jeff intentionally invoke this because it was established in their first episode together that they were really toxic to one another. This is brought to light again in season 2 where the two almost conspired to get Chang imprisoned for the rest of his life. The third season episode "Foosball and Nocturnal Vigilantism" had a Jeff and Shirley pairing that seemed to resolve their issues and later in the season the two spend an episode together without resulting in them becoming horrible people. Also Abed and Pierce haven't spent too much time together, but this seems to be at least partially intentional on Abed's end because, as Abed puts it, he doesn't find Pierce all that compelling as a character. In Season 1's Social Psychology, Abed lampshades the lack of plotlines between him and Annie using Phoebe and Chandler as an example. Although this is somewhat of a parody of the trope seeing as this episode was only the fourth in the entire series. Indeed in the later episodes and seasons Abed probably has the closest relationship with Annie outside of Troy.

Chekhov's Gun: True to form, Community pulls this off with an actual gun in "Remedial Chaos Theory." Troy discovers Annie's gun in the very first timeline we see. Later on, in another timeline, where no one knows about the gun, it accidentally goes off. The stray bullet leads to Pierce's (somewhat) untimely death, which, in conjunction with Jeff's loss of an arm, makes this undeniably the Darkest Timeline.

Aborted Arc
 Community / int_23698fa8
comment
Aborted Arc: Chang's Sanity Slippage at the beginning of season two was supposed to feed into a subplot where Chang would be haunted by the twin sister he ate in utero. The idea was quietly dropped, though it was briefly referenced in "The First Chang Dynasty." In "Beginning Pottery", Rich is revealed to have severe mommy issues. He's seen a few times in season two, but his Freudian Excuse is never brought up again. The show Abed makes based off his adventures with the study group is never brought up again after Season 1.

Only Sane Man
 Community / int_24321e44
comment
Only Sane Man: Britta came off this way early in Season 1, but Characterization Marches On. Jeff likes to think he is this. However, according to the Britta's psych evaluations in Season 3, Abed is the only one of the group who isn't psychologically insane. On the commentary track for that episode, Dan Harmon suggests not reading too much into this, because part of his point was that there is only so much about a person's mental stability you can gather from any multiple-choice test. Whenever he shows up, Shirley's husband Andre comes across as a rather sensible and decent fellow who has plentiful reserves of common sense, in contrast to many of the main characters. Professor Kane acts as this in season three. "I have so many conversations that have no sense." Head Greendale security guard Muniz is the only one to point out that Chang is mentally disturbed, and that enabling him dangerous and unfunny. They should've listened to him.

The Complainer Is Always Wrong
 Community / int_2711e392
comment
The Complainer Is Always Wrong: In "Advanced Documentary Filmmaking," Jeff is convinced that Chang is faking his Changnesia. Then it turns out that Chang genuinely doesn't remember his ex-wife, and now Jeff knows how Chang used to feel all the time - hated and ostracized. Naturally, it was subverted by the end of the episode - Chang really is faking, and is taking orders from someone unknown.

Unexpectedly Dark Episode
 Community / int_286141a2
comment
Unexpectedly Dark Episode: "Basic Intergluteal Numismatics." The episode has a decidedly darker tone than your usual episode and shortly after it begins, someone sticks a quarter in Garrett's butt crack. The rest of the episode focuses on finding the "Ass Crack Bandit" in a way similar to hunting a serial killer. Subverted in that despite the dark atmosphere, the hunt for the perpetrator is still relatively silly compared to an actual serial killer search. Double Subverted when their final pursuit of the Ass Crack Bandit is interrupted by Shirley telling Jeff and Annie that Pierce has died.

Lampshade Hanging
 Community / int_2a090d00
comment
Lampshade Hanging: Everywhere. In Cooperative Calligraphy, Jeff explicitly says: Examples of tropes not yet covered by this website, but employed and then lampshaded by the show: It is revealed to the audience that Troy is in a dance class when he suddenly and dramatically tears off clothes to reveal tights underneath. Later, when encouraged of the positives if he were to reveal his dancing secret to the group, he notes "I have been spending a lot on tear-away clothing." In the first season finale, Britta is taking therapy with Professor Duncan. She has automatically lain down on the couch for the session, which Duncan notes is how one would act "in a Woody Allen movie" and is unnecessary. Jeff will sometimes yell at Abed for using meta-humor, which is itself meta-humor. In "Applied Anthropology and Culinary Arts", a couple of background characters mention how everything at Greendale seems to revolve around the study group.

Money Dumb: Brita is in huge debt during the second season, which is lampshaded when she meets Troy's childhood hero. She tries to convince him to stay to spend time with Troy by paying him all she has in her bank account, less than 300 dollars. He refuses, saying that she is a nice girl, but is very stupid with her money, which she happily agrees with.

Create Your Own Villain: The Study Group's treatment of Chang during season two can be seen as the reasons behind his descent into madness and outright villainy during season three. As lampshaded several times throughout the season, Pierce becoming more and more antagonistic to the Study Group over the course of season two was in large part prompted by the Study Group's poor treatment of him, which was in turn prompted by Pierce's jerkassery in the first place.

Out with a Bang: Sort of. After Pierce's death his lawyer came with a series of gifts to each of the members of the study group, some were given something a little more specific to the individual (an iPod for Britta, a bottle of scotch for Jeff) but everyone got a frozen vial of Pierce's sperm to do whatever they wanted to with. At the end the group asks how Pierce actually died, and his lawyer said it was dehydration from filling up all those vials.

Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: While hypnotising Britta, Pierce tries to coerce her into a hot tub party with himself and her "friend... with lower self-esteem and slightly larger breasts," presumably Annie. In "Early 21st Century Romanticism," Britta kisses Paige (very awkwardly) and is very nearly kissed by Annie. Buddy feels this way about Britta and Annie, daydreaming of them wrestling in whipped cream while wearing cheerleader uniforms over a missing bra. Britta and Annie accidentally put this to good use when raising money for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, as they end up raising most of their money by oil wrestling.

Annie moved from being a driven young woman to an "Awwwwww" machine. Her crush on Jeff also moved from merely being a smaller aspect of her character to one of the more notable parts of Annie's identity. Season 5 dials her back to her original characterization whilst also having her undergo Character Development to become a more assertive and confident adult. Her Ship Tease with Jeff is also minimized quite a bit.

Crack Pairing: In-Universe. "Romantic Expressionism" parodies this with a long sequence of Ship Tease suggestive glances between all of the characters. In order, it goes: Pierce / Shirley / Jeff / Britta / Abed / Britta / Annie / Britta (gasp!) / Annie (gasp!) / Troy / Shirley / Troy / Annie / Pierce / Annie / Jeff / Annie / Jeff / Abed. "Epidemiology" gave us Shirley/Chang. It's canon. Or, affects canon at least. "Paradigms of Human Memory" brings us a romantic montage set to "Gravity" between Pierce and Abed. "Geography Of Global Conflict." Britta and Chang.

Blatant Lies: One example occurs in the episode "The Politics Of Human Sexuality" after Troy 'wins' his race with Abed: In a later episode, a therapist attempts to convince the gang that their entire time at Greendale College was a shared delusion. This would be a lot more believable to take in if there wasn't a large amount of easily-available evidence to the contrary, such as pictures on a phone, families who they see every day, and Annie wearing a Greendale backpack during this whole conversation. Needless to say, the therapist turned out to be a fraud. His next attempt to fool them, claiming that Greendale was purgatory and he was the Devil, was even less successful. Mostly.

Final Season Casting: While the first four seasons featured the entire Study Group, the show saw Pierce, Troy, and Shirley leave respectively before, during, and after season 5. The show made up for it by integrating into the group first Buzz Hickey and the returning Ian Duncan in season 5, then Frankie Dart and Elroy Patashnik in season 6, along with giving more focus to Ben Chang and Dean Pelton.

Love Dodecahedron
 Community / int_4523420b
comment
Love Dodecahedron: Just about every possible pairing has been explored with the cast, and throw in the supporting cast it gets complicated. Jeff started the study group to be closer to Britta, who at one point dated Vaughn, then went out with his (former) statistics teacher who he broke up with in "Basic Genealogy." Annie had an intense study session with Jeff when he joined Debate Club, but still had a serious crush on Troy, until she decided to pursue her relationship with Vaughn. Troy apologized for leading Annie on when he announced he had a date with Randy, quickly explaining that Randy can be a girl's name, too, but (due to some interference by Britta and Jeff) became attracted to Annie, who rejects him for Vaughn. Britta claims she doesn't have feelings for Jeff, but choked onstage when she saw him with an "official" girlfriend, Professor Slater, and Troy had to snap her out of it by "being a friend AND a man." A few episodes later, Jeff and Britta hooked up in the middle of an intense paintball game. In the finale of S1, Slater and Britta both declare their love for Jeff, but he leaves and kisses Annie. Annie and Jeff continue to have big-time UST in S2 and a bit in S3 as well. Meanwhile, Jeff and Britta had been hooking up on the down-low throughout S2, which is brought to an end when everyone else finds out. Annie and Abed kiss in the S2 finale, but only because Abed is in character as Han Solo, and once the paintball game is done he drops character and doesn't reference it again, though Annie is still a bit flustered by the experience. The two of them have a couple of nice Ship Tease moments in S3 as well. Meanwhile, Troy and Britta have more and more bonding moments throughout S3, especially in "Origins of Vampire Mythology", which sets Troy up as the sweet, earnest, good guy Britta's never really had in her life. The amount of lingering hugs and longing looks and other such moments between the two of them, especially in the S3 finale, means that they're the closest thing to an actual couple currently in the group. As of Season 4, Britta and Troy are an official couple until they amicably break up in "Basic Human Anatomy."

Shirtless Scene: Mike's gang in the climactic scene of "Comparative Religion": Jeff had a shirtless scene and then just simply didn't stop. Pretty soon it ended with him (gratuitously) lifting his leg up onto a pool table while lining up a shot... completely nude.

In-Universe. "Romantic Expressionism" parodies this with a long sequence of Ship Tease suggestive glances between all of the characters. In order, it goes: Pierce / Shirley / Jeff / Britta / Abed / Britta / Annie / Britta (gasp!) / Annie (gasp!) / Troy / Shirley / Troy / Annie / Pierce / Annie / Jeff / Annie / Jeff / Abed.

Bourgeois Bohemian: Britta's parents were hippies in the 1960s and too free-spirited to raise their daughter correctly, but they've settled down into normal, upper-middle-class people. It's a twist when we find out that Britta is rebelling against them because they were too permissive rather than too authoritarian.

Bait the Dog

Bait the Dog: A very weird inversion. Before the fandom met Andre all they heard about him was nothing but bad things from Shirley. So when he turned out to be Mr. Perfect it jarred so much with the fandoms preconceptions of who he was. As a result many in the community fandom absolutely hate Andre, because they can't see Mr. Perfect as the man who Shirley described. Andre would eventually reveal his imperfect side, but remain a sympathetic character.

Characterization Marches On
 Community / int_479f9ad0
comment
Britta came off this way early in Season 1, but Characterization Marches On. Jeff likes to think he is this. However, according to the Britta's psych evaluations in Season 3, Abed is the only one of the group who isn't psychologically insane. On the commentary track for that episode, Dan Harmon suggests not reading too much into this, because part of his point was that there is only so much about a person's mental stability you can gather from any multiple-choice test.

Leaning on the Fourth Wall
 Community / int_4a3e547f
comment
Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Abed mentions that talking about people like they're in a TV show is his gimmick and that they "leaned pretty hard on that last week." He then says that he "can lay low for an episode." Abed is not featured in the episode after that, except when he avoids talking to the study group and Britta explains, "he's just laying low." In the first episode of the second season, Jeff tells Abed that self-referential humor is "so last season." From the second episode of Season 3: "Abed, I told you, you can't just mumble stuff. Nobody's cutting away!"

Friendless Background
 Community / int_4a57732a
comment
Friendless Background: Most of the study group: In "Pillows and Blankets", Troy sends a vicious text message to Abed saying that "we all know I was your first friend." Pierce had been attending Greendale for over ten years, but it would seem that the study group are the first meaningful connection he's made. Jeff's line of career makes it pretty obvious that he never had anyone he trusted or cared about in his firm. Chang, for obvious reasons: he's pretty much insane. Despite his efforts, though, he never makes it into the study group. Britta tearfully remarks at one point that she's never really had any female friends ("Women have always hated me!") and there are hints that most of the people she hung out with pre-study group couldn't wait to be rid of her. Annie was the bullied awkward nerdy girl at school.

Always in Class One: The study group passes all three criteria. The seven main characters all took the same Spanish class, and never added anybody else that they met at Greendale to the study group afterward (well, except for that one time). Invoked Trope after they got to know each other, however, as they all purposefully scheduled at least one class together each following year (instead of happening to randomly get matched with each other). Criteria number 2 was lampshaded in Applied Anthropology and Culinary Arts by Vicki: You can bet that they're Weirdness Magnets, too.

Unfortunate Implications
 Community / int_4bc5e1e8
comment
Shirley and Troy didn't have a B-Plot together until the fourth season. Yvette-Nicole Brown (Shirley's actress) noted this in the DVD commentary for a season three episode where Troy gave a heartfelt goodbye to Shirley, although the two never spent time together on-screen. They also rarely spoke to one another directly even when the group was all together around the study room. This could be read as an attempt to avert any potential Unfortunate Implications of having the only two African-American members of the group hang out all the time, except that it's gone a bit far the other way.

Downer Ending: Parodied and played straight in "Basic Intergluteal Numismatics." The episode is a sorta funny episode trying to discover the identity of the Ass Crack Bandit. Then we find out Pierce is dead. The episode concludes on the characters deciding the Ass Crack Bandit isn't as important as Pierce. The end card says that Greendale is lying about the identity of the Ass Crack Bandit, they let Star Burns take the fall in exchange for paying for his weed, and the real guy is still free. It ranges on Sudden Downer Ending on top of a Downer Ending.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Community / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: Early episodes feature more outdoor sequences, with the main courtyard used almost as much as the study room. The first two episodes of the show include pop songs on the soundtrack. Early episodes could be self-referential, mostly due to Abed as the Meta Guy, but there was no big Genre Shift involved in any given episode. The Affectionate Parody or High Concept episodes started near the end of the season with "Contemporary American Poultry" and Mafia movies like Goodfellas, and cemented two episodes later with the Die Hard-esque "Modern Warfare." By season three the majority of the episodes were a parody of a specific genre. The first season deals more heavily with Jeff's transition from lawyer to student, and the group is fairly unfamiliar with each other. By the second season, Jeff is comfortably a student and the group members are true companions, plus or minus Pierce. Early episodes present Annie as a dowdy nerd while Britta is the most desirable woman in the group, and Jeff's primary motivation in the pilot is to hook up with Britta. Before long, the roles had been reversed, with Britta becoming the Butt-Monkey of the group (including jokes about her mannequin-like appearance), while Annie becomes more and more of a Ms. Fanservice with a longstanding Will They or Won't They? with Jeff.

Age-Gap Romance: Subverted with Jeff and Annie. There are some feelings and series-long Ship Tease between Annie (in her late teens at the beginning of the series) and Jeff (a thirty-something guy). They occasionally act on their feelings and kiss or act like they are a couple on a date, but they always realize that them dating would be too weird and rather creepy, and the full relationship does not happen. Evil Annie & Evil Jeff are together in the Darkest Timeline. When Evil Annie asks if he has a problem with the age difference, Evil Jeff says he wishes she was younger. Late season 3 and season 4 also had 31-year-old Britta date 23-year-old Troy.

Motive Decay: The original reason the study group was formed was so Jeff could seduce Britta. This premise stopped being mentioned about half way through the first season, and towards the end of the third even the study group was temporarily dropped as an excuse to keep the group together. This does not go without a lampshade for long.

Book-Ends: The first and last episodes of Anthropology class under Duncan are, fittingly, about death and birth, respectively. Chang begins and ends season 3 hiding in the air vents but with the latter, he's in City College. The Tag of the season 3 finale, marking Dan Harmon's departure from the show, ends with the same music that was used in the Cold Open of the pilot. Season 4 begins and ends with episodes focused on change and what happens when the Study Group start their lives after Greendale. Both episodes also heavily feature elements of All Just a Dream, with Jeff and Abed flipping roles - It's Abed's fears at the start of the season, resolved by Jeff giving a Rousing Speech in Abed's mind; and the other way round in the finale. The first and last lines of the season are also variants of the "Troy and Abed in the Morning!" Mad Libs Catchphrase Running Gag. Jeff and Britta are the two founding members of the original study group in the series' pilot. In the closing scene of the last season's final episode, the only two remaining members from that group are Britta and Jeff.

Troy immediately complains that the trope-naming episode of Happy Days was the best one.

In the episode Aerodynamics of Gender, Jeff and Troy find serenity and perspective, while the girls are consumed by hateful activities and dominant behavior.

Meaningful Background Event
 Community / int_5b565147
comment
Meaningful Background Event: In the Bottle Episode, the reveal that it was the monkey who stole the pen seemingly came out of nowhere. Early in the episode, during the shot where Troy says he wants to lick the puppy Dean Pelton is holding, in the background a tiny monkey hand is seen taking the pen off the table. It is very easy to miss. In "The Psychology of Letting Go," the background events tell the story of Abed helping a pregnant woman, getting in an argument with the father, and eventually delivering the baby. In "Introduction to Teaching", the bulletin board in the cafeteria falls from the wall during a riot. Replacing it becomes the focal point of a later episode, "Analysis of Cork-Based Networking." In season one's Christmas episode, "Comparative Religion", Shirley struggles to accept that the other members of the group don't share her faith (and especially has difficulty with Annie's Judaism). At the end of season two's episode, "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas", when Professor Duncan and Dean Pelton are in the foreground doing shots, Shirley can be seen in the background doubling back after the rest of the group has left to grab a menorah, so that Annie's faith can be represented at the gathering in the next scene.

The Smurfette Principle: "As the only female member of the Greendale Gooffaws, I have played many memorable comedic characters on stage. My favorites include the roles of "Girlfriend," "Mom" and "Nurse 2" in the Greendale Goofaws' "A Tale of Too Witty" musical revue."

You Kill It, You Bought It: Pierce's dad dies of a heart attack (after being yelled at by Jeff). Having written in his will that whoever kills him will inherit his ridiculous looking ivory toupee, it goes to Jeff, who really doesn't want it. The ivory headpiece is later worn by Troy in his and Abed's apartment, indicating Jeff gave it to them instead.

Completely Missing the Point: The core of Pierce's character. In "The Politics of Human Sexuality", the Dean discovers free condoms handed out by the school are faulty. Fearing pregnancies and the spread of STDs amongst students, he instructs Abed to make an announcement about the condoms over the speaker system. Abed then instructs everyone "if you're going to have sex tonight, don't use condoms." In "The Psychology of Letting Go", Duncan points out that Jeff's recent desire to belittle and undermine Pierce's faith in his cult is linked to Jeff's discovery that he has high cholesterol. Jeff accepts this, but instead of the expected 'so lighten up about it and let Pierce continue regardless' message, Jeff instead decides that this increased self-awareness means he can really go to town on pulling the rug from under Pierce.

In the Bottle Episode, the reveal that it was the monkey who stole the pen seemingly came out of nowhere. Early in the episode, during the shot where Troy says he wants to lick the puppy Dean Pelton is holding, in the background a tiny monkey hand is seen taking the pen off the table. It is very easy to miss.

Serious Business: To the point of a Running Gag; it seems that there is nothing on Earth that either the study group or the wider Greendale community as a whole cannot take and find some way to completely blow out of proportion. Such as: Chicken fingers are so important that the gang starts a mini-Mafia to control them. Paintball, as shown in "Modern Warfare", "A Fistful of Paintballs", "For a Few Paintballs More", and "Modern Espionage." Losing a pen leads to the Study Group literally tearing the study room apart to find it. In ''Early 21st Century Romanticism" the group are just as — if not more — outraged by Jeff's dislike of the Barenaked Ladies than his reluctance to join them in an intervention for Pierce. The rivalry with City College - up to and including a 'space race.' Love of the game of pool is treated this way in "Physical Education." The Air Conditioner Repair Annex is basically a cult, complete with their own by-laws and traditions. Picking lab partners, instead of being a quick and painless task, took the Study Group an entire day to get done. And even then, they didn't actually do it. Foosball. The decision whether to make a blanket fort or a pillow fort turns into a campus-wide pillow-fought civil war in "Digital Exploration of Interior Design" and "Pillows and Blankets." Abed and Troy's 'Dreamatorium' - they would rather sleep in a tent within their apartment than use the room as a bedroom. Someone pushing a yam off a table in "Basic Lupine Urology." "Alternate History of the German Invasion" reveals that the group treat anyone else using Study Room F as an invasion of their home, whilst the Study Group hogging the room leads to the rest of the student body protesting against them. Someone else using Magnitude's "Pop pop!" catchphrase leads to him having a nervous breakdown and crisis of identity. The Ass Crack Bandit, who runs around Greendale dropping quarters down people's ass cracks when they're bent over, is treated like a police force would a serial killer. This is gradually subverted towards the end, however; when the study group learn of the death of Pierce, they immediately recognise the Bandit as ultimately trivial in comparison to the death of their friend.

Fanservice: Jeff completely bare-assed naked at the pool table. Dayum. Granted, it was combined with total Fan Disservice, but it was easy to bypass that for Jeff's abs. "Cooperative Calligraphy" has everyone strip down to their underwear. No matter which gender you're attracted to, you will be pleased. Though, notably, the guys are less clothed than the girls. Parodied in "Investigative Journalism" and "The Psychology of Letting Go" with Annie and Britta's wrestling while covered in soap suds (wearing cheerleader outfits) and while covered in oil, respectively. Parodied with Annie singing a "baby talk" song in a Sexy Santa Dress in "Regional Holiday Music", which also doubles as a dig against the creepy notion of women being sexier when projecting an infantile persona.

Affectionate Gesture to the Head: Moments of tension between Annie and Jeff end with him awkwardly patting her on the head. Discussed. Jeff and Annie's relationship is characterized by him being an older brother to her, except that the increasing sexual tension is making that awkward and they can't keep it up, meaning their relationship has to evolve. The discussion ends with "We can't keep doing this, kiddo," with a gentle chuck of the chin.

Christmas Episode: "Comparative Religion" (Season 1), "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" (Season 2), "Regional Holiday Music" (Season 3), "Intro to Knots" (Season 4). Lampshaded several times in "Comparative Religion", when Shirley's efforts to force everyone to participate in her Christmas party as if they'll completely ruin Christmas Day for her if they don't do exactly what she wants often elicit the response that it's only "December 10th." She later picks up on this; when one of the bullies begs for mercy from Shirley, saying, "Please, it's Christmas!" she responds, "It's December 10th!" and attacks him. Also "Miracle on Jeff's Street", an animated promo trailer for season 5.

The "I Love You" Stigma
 Community / int_6f6ab063
comment
The "I Love You" Stigma: The show blends this with Grand Romantic Gesture. Both Britta and Slater admit that they are interested in Jeff and end up openly competing for his attention, turning it more into a game of chicken with how far the other will go. Britta decides to get the attention of the entire end-of-semester dance and make a big public announcement that she loves Jeff, and then Slater does the same. Jeff is actually put off by how badly this situation has turned and retreats from both of them. Later, Jeff learns that the school thinks of him as the bad guy in the situation and he tries getting back at Britta by making a similar big declaration of love, expecting her to turn him down. THAT ends up backfiring as Britta responds in kind and they spend the afternoon as a couple doing a weird mix of Sickeningly Sweethearts and Slap-Slap-Kiss (literally, their kisses almost look like headbutts), and the whole thing implodes on itself.

Camp Gay: THE. DEAN. Even though his character is supposed to be pansexual, everything about Dean Pelton, from catchphrases to being there for light entertainment, to showy effeminate costumes and banter is this trope in spades. An interesting evolution/variation from earlier iterations of the trope in that he's allowed to have a sexuality and does indeed hit on Jeff mercilessly. The difference now is society isn't so obsessed with Gay Panic that such attempts aren't even remotely threatening and therefore allowed for the character.

Big Bad Ensemble: Aside from Dean Spreck, several seasons had other major antagonists. In Season 2, Pierce fulfills the role of Big Bad in the final third of the season, until the paintball finale where Dean Spreck’s agenda is revealed. Pierce betrays Spreck, earning a place back in the study group. In Season 3, Chang trying to take over Greendale, Evil Abed trying to cross over from the Darkest Timeline and corrupt the Prime Timeline until it matches, and Vice-Dean Laybourne trying to bully Troy into joining the Air Conditioner Repair School. And of course, Dean Spreck is shown to still be plotting against Greendale in the season finale. Subverted in Season 4, when the rest of the Evil Study Group invades the prime timeline but it’s revealed to be All Just a Dream. In Season 5, it’s Subway, the sandwich restaurant chain. Despite the destruction of their on-campus outlet at the end of season 3, the company finds out Greendale is prime real estate and plan to convert the entire campus into a “sandwich institute”.

A Documentary Episode done by Abed, especially given that he is involved with the film club. The second season had a psuedo-Mockumentary in the style of The Office as the group try to help Pierce while he is in the hospital. The third season Abed does a documentary on the Dean trying to make a school commercial, quickly going out of control like the production of Apocalypse Now and IT'S famous documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse. There was also a Ken Burns-esque episode exploring the civil war Abed and Troy started over "blanket forts vs. pillow forts." The fourth season Abed does a documentary exploring "Chang-nesia," while the sixth has him do a wedding video.

The Cast Showoff: Several members of the cast demonstrate musical talent over the course of the show, including Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Donald Glover, and Chevy Chase. The season 3 Christmas special offers an opportunity to show off when the study group fills in for the glee club—but special mention has to made of Donald Glover, who had released his first full-length album by the time the episode aired, and whose section of the rap performed by Troy and Abed in that episode sounds much more like his own music than the simpler raps performed earlier in the show's run.

Internal Deconstruction
 Community / int_74911014
comment
Internal Deconstruction: In "Studies in Modern Movement," the show points out that Troy and Abed are the funniest guys to be around... In small doses. Living with them while they act out a usual side plot from an episode is very not fun. The third season has also done a bit of a deconstruction of Jeff and Abed respectively; Jeff's role as Standardized Leader is being examined and his snide, aloof snarkiness has been shown to be concealing a rather messed-up person underneath, while Abed's Ambiguous Disorder has been put under a spotlight to reveal him to be not just a cool, in-control Meta Guy but an inconsiderate, damaged and controlling person to be around sometimes. Greendale itself faced massive deconstruction in the season five premiere, where the school faced major criticism for ruining the group's lives. Basically, it is a look at what happens when a school acts ridiculous instead of ensuring that people actually learn. Season six goes even further and deconstructs the series as a whole. For the first five seasons, the theme has always been that Greendale is a sort of dysfunctional haven where broken people can go to heal themselves through The Power of Friendship. Season six has a running theme that the danger with such a haven can easily turn into a way of avoiding reality instead of preparing for it and that sooner or later, you need to learn to stand on your own two feet.

Political Correctness Gone Mad
 Community / int_770c9008

Political Correctness Gone Mad The Greendale mascot was carefully designed so as not to resemble any specific race or culture; it ended up being called "The Greendale Human Being" and looking like a blind and mute alien. The religiously neutral Santa. Pretty much everything involving the Dean is an example of this. Case in point: "Alternative History of the German Invasion" has the Dean slamming on the obnoxious German trio for celebrating Oktoberfest (along with everyone else), because it's their own tradition and therefore a national stereotype.

Real Life Writes the Plot
 Community / int_786bf97f
comment
Real Life Writes the Plot: Professor Duncan disappears after Season 2 due to John Oliver's work on The Daily Show (filmed on the opposite side of the country in New York). He returns in Season 5, only to leave again afterwards when Oliver began hosting Last Week Tonight in 2014. Pierce being killed off early in Season 5 was to account for Chevy Chase's severance agreement stating he couldn't step foot on the set of Community ever again. Troy left because Donald Glover wanted to focus on his music career. Shirley left in Season Six so Yvette could take care of her ailing father. In "Ladders", this is the reason for the Greendale cafeteria rooftop's collapse under the weight of tons of frisbees, and subsequent reparation using load-bearing pillars. The show's set had moved for season 6, and the new soundstage had giant load-bearing pillars that were necessary to hold the ceiling up. The rooftop's collapse was written as an excuse to explain the presence of the pillars in the cafeteria.

Amusing Injuries
 Community / int_78c895c8
comment
Inevitable in a series which insists on playing out typical comedy scenarios - but with genuine consequences and character development. For example, the story arc where Pierce gets injured in a wacky accident on a trampoline... which leads to his being forced to wear full casts on both legs for a good portion of the season, and become addicted to painkillers which nearly claim both his friendships and his life.

Chewbacca Defense / Courtroom Antic: Jeff's go-to strategy as a lawyer. He particularly seems to like invoking 9/11. Subverted in at least one instance: when he uses it in "Debate", Greendale loses, 50-8 (and the 8 were to Annie).

Pop-Cultural Osmosis Failure
 Community / int_7a2d9301
comment
Pop-Cultural Osmosis Failure: Occasionally pops up due to the age gaps within the study group (from Pierce to Jeff and Shirley to Annie and Troy) and to a lesser extent due to the race differences: A conversation about the UST between Jeff and Britta: When attempting to convince Abed to change his personality in order to help him talk to a girl: One of the 'Study Break' webisodes has the gang decide to play a game while on a study break. Troy, Annie and Abed decide to play 'The Floor Is Lava', Pierce and Shirley break out the cards to play Pinocle, and Jeff and Britta find themselves trapped between the two poles. Lampshaded when Jeff dryly taunts Britta by pointing out that "the generation gap is splitting our group — and you're right in the middle of it." Shirley repeatedly makes a point of reminding everyone that she and Jeff are about the same age—she just seems to be further removed in age because of her more old-fashioned, conservative views and the fact that she is a parent while Jeff is not.

Real Men Wear Pink: Troy during dance class in "Interpretive Dance." Also, Troy and Pierce in "Communication Studies." They wear vibrant blue and pink (respectively) pantsuits, as punishment for the fallout of Shirley and Annie's prank on Señor Chang. In "Home Economics", Abed describes Jeff as being just like Goldie Hawn in overboard - he's wealthy, assertive, arrogant, and gets manicures all the time.

All Love Is Unrequited
 Community / int_7a82c3d2
comment
All Love Is Unrequited: The first few episodes seemed to offer a fairly predictable version of this, with alpha-couple Jeff/Britta and beta-couple Annie/Troy. But it eventually averted this, in that after a while the characters decided to move on to other people instead of fawning over someone seemingly uninterested. There is still occasional Ship Tease between these pairings, but it's not a primary focus (and there's just as, if not more, Ship Tease between other pairings, such as Jeff/Annie and Britta/Troy). By season 3, Jeff/Britta and Troy/Annie ship tease has all but disappeared, with Jeff/Annie becoming the primary source of Ship Tease while Troy gets a fair amount of it with both Abed and Britta. Annie and Abed also have their moments.

Later Installment Weirdness
 Community / int_7b21ef92
comment
Later Installment Weirdness: The two final seasons have it in spades: The original study group progressively dwindles from seven members to four (notably, the geek duo of Troy and Abed is broken up with only Abed remaining). The group also becomes the "Save Greendale Committee", and contains both students and faculty members. Prominent villain Ben Chang undergoes a Heel–Face Turn, save for one last relapse, and becomes an official member of the group. The final season has a format change (longer and slower-paced episodes and ending credits being shown after tags, and not during them, just like in the pilot) , and the show's wackiness is toned down.

Vague Age
 Community / int_7f080f98
comment
Vague Age: Of all the main characters, Abed is the only one whose age is completely unknown. Danny Pudi is 33, but his youthful appearance and Abed's social awkwardness and Manchild behavior make it difficult to tell how old he is supposed to be. Most fans assume he is somewhere in his early 20s, like Annie and Troy, but this has never been confirmed. Additionally, his development and childhood appear to have been heavily influenced by 80s and early-90s pop culture, suggesting he may be at least a few years older than Troy and Annie (born in 1989 and 1990, respectively). However, in one of the internet shorts, Abed participates in the "Floor is Lava" game with Troy and Annie, and he is usually grouped in with them when jokes or comments about the younger members of the group are made. In an early pilot script, Abed was said to be in his "mid-20s," at the same time when Annie and Troy were 18 and 19, although all the characters were substantially different in that early draft.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: In "Custody Law and Eastern European Diplomacy", Andre talks Shirley and Jeff out of getting Chang put in jail for 20 to life for human trafficking. This comes back to haunt not just the study group, but all of Greendale in season 3 when Chang becomes the Big Bad. Also, Jeff and Shirley mocking Vaughn behind his back led to him attacking Britta in song after he dumped her over their actions.

School Forced Us Together: The main characters come together to form a study group in order to get through Spanish. Due to their differing personalities, it's unlikely they would have become friends otherwise. For instance, while Annie and Troy went to the same high school, the two were in separate social groups (Annie being more focused on studying and Troy being a jock).

Dysfunction Junction
 Community / int_820ac3c5
comment
Season six goes even further and deconstructs the series as a whole. For the first five seasons, the theme has always been that Greendale is a sort of dysfunctional haven where broken people can go to heal themselves through The Power of Friendship. Season six has a running theme that the danger with such a haven can easily turn into a way of avoiding reality instead of preparing for it and that sooner or later, you need to learn to stand on your own two feet.

Motor Mouth
 Community / int_82518cf7
comment
Abed is much more of a Motor Mouth in the pilot, and his mannerisms are more nervous and less robotic — smiling, laughing, and gesturing fairly naturally, such as when he's gratified after Jeff gets his references to The Breakfast Club and Dirty Dancing. While Jeff (obviously not a doctor) says he has Asperger's, the ambiguity of Abed's Ambiguous Disorder is amped up to Running Gag levels in later episodes. His pop culture gimmick is also less explicit, though it does still seem to be his go-to resource for communicating with others. Meanwhile, Abed's trouble with recognizing and reading faces is only established in Season 2 — he compares Britta to Elizabeth Shue in Pilot, it doesn't seem to interfere with his impersonating Don Draper in Physical Education, and he almost falls for Annie's Disney face in English as a Second Language.

Convenient Replacement Character: Usually, when one study group/committee member leaves, their spot at the table does not remain empty for long. By the time Season 5 premieres, Pierce is banned from the campus (and later dies) . Buzz Hickey takes his place two episodes later. Mid-Season 5, Troy leaves. Existing character Ben Chang takes his place and role as resident ditz. Season 6 sees the departure of Buzz, Shirley, and Ian Duncan. The former two are replaced in the first two episodes by newcomers Frankie Dart and Elroy Patashnik, and Dean Pelton now participates in the committee's meetings and sits at Duncan's place.

In Season 1, Chang starts out as a mix between an Apathetic Teacher and a Sadist Teacher, a tyrannical, eccentric, but ultimately competent Bunny-Ears Lawyer, but also with hints at more of a normal outside life than most of the study group. The end of the season reveals he was faking his Spanish credentials the whole time, Season 2 makes his ongoing Sanity Slippage a Running Gag, and by Season 3, he's been Flanderized into a full-blown lunatic.

What Happened to the Mouse?: Professor Slater vanished into the ether after season one. Although in the episode "Intro to Political Science", it is noted by Troy and Abed's Campaign Followup that Prof. Slater is missing. Word of God is that Harmon was simply tired of the character. Professor Duncan became a case of this after Season 2 (it was even lampshaded in Season 4). He returned in Season 5, having spent the last two years caring for his ailing mother. Does Troy still play football for Greendale? Lampshaded by Abed in "Lawnmower Maintenance And Postnatal Care", when he focuses on the minor detail of what happened to the child's tricycle that Britta stole earlier in the episode:

Black-and-Gray Morality: On the one hand, we have: Pierce (Depending on the Writer and how uncharitable you're feeling towards him), a racist, sexist sociopathic bully dedicated to making everyone's lives a living hell Chang, a murderous psychopath Cornelius Hawthorne, an even worse version of his son Dean Spreck, an underhanded, vicious cheat. Starburns, a sleazy drug-dealer. And Allan, an Amoral Attorney with no limits as to what he'll do to win. On the other hand, we have: A selfish, dishonest jerk (Jeff) Self-righteous, judgmental hypocrites (Britta, Annie, Shirley) Social outcasts still getting used to the world outside their TV (Troy and Abed) A lonely, socially-maladjusted old man who just wants to make friends but, thanks to his neglectful upbringing, has no idea how to go about doing so without rubbing people the wrong way (Pierce again, Depending on the Writer and the Alternative Character Interpretation) An incompetent and deeply insecure administrator who, despite his eccentric and frequently inappropriate behaviour, just wants to be liked and respected by those around him (Dean Pelton)

Everyone Is Christian at Christmas
 Community / int_89975510

Everyone Is Christian at Christmas: Notably averted in "Comparative Religion." Fed up with the Dean's pushing an inclusive, nondenominational holiday, Shirley organizes an overtly religious Christmas party - then is surprised to find she's the only Christian in the group. Annie is Jewish, Abed is Muslim, Britta is an atheist, Jeff is agnostic (called "lazy man's atheist"), Pierce is in a New Age cult calling itself Buddhist, and Troy is a Jehovah's Witness (technically Christian but doesn't observe Christmas). Carried over in the third season's "Regional Holiday Music" where Troy is slated to spend the day with his family that pointedly doesn't observe Christmas. Shirley plans to gift her "persuadable Jewish friends" with a surprise visit from her pastor, but Annie plans to observe her people's custom of spending the day at the movies with her 'bubbie'.

Deconstruction: Both "Documentary" episodes deconstruct documentaries (and 'Mockumentaries' based on the documentary format), suggesting that for all that documentary makers try to remain objective and present the 'real' events as they occur without interference, the very act of filming random events and building a narrative around them is inherently artificial, and that remaining objective and watching people and events deteriorate around you might do more harm than good. Jeff's relationship with Britta in season one could be deconstructed in terms of the Official Couple/Belligerent Sexual Tension trope. Instead of truly falling in love, they spent most of the time snarking at each other and competing with each other, to the point where everyone was complaining about in "Modern Warfare." Speaking of which, they finally slept with each other, only to go back to snarky arguments and competition. In the finale, Britta's war with Jeff's ex led to her blurting out that she loved him (the season two premiere revealed that she did not mean it), only for Jeff to leave... and kiss Annie. In short, relationships that are based mainly around snide arguments are likely to be at the very least a bit messed up.

Ultimate Job Security
 Community / int_8c55e307
comment
Ultimate Job Security: All the teachers never get fired, despite how sadistic, lazy, or incompetent they can get. Lampshaded in at least one episode; after complaining to the dean, Annie mentions that they've been trying to fire one teacher for three years, but no one else wants the job. Subverted with Professor Bauer in "Anthropology 101." She initially suffers no consequences for shooting a dart at Star-Burns and knocking him into a brief state of paralysis, but strangling Jeff to the point where he ends up in the Student Health Center is enough to get her put on paid administrative leave.

Parody Episode
 Community / int_8e3f39b3
comment
Parody Episode: A focal point of the show's humor, starting with the second half of the first season, various episodes devote themselves to being parodies of various genres: "The Science of Illusion": Annie and Shirley try to be a crime drama-esque buddy cop team, with each one trying to be the loose cannon bad cop. "Contemporary American Poultry": After noticing that the study group's illicit cornering of the cafeteria's chicken fingers is "like a mafia movie", the rest of the plot comes to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. "The Art of Discourse": Abed goes down a list to fulfill every college movie trope he can with Troy. "Modern Warfare": Practically every war-themed work under the sun except, well, Modern Warfare. "Basic Rocket Science": The gang gets trapped in a space simulator with Abed as Mission Control parodying space movies like Apollo 13, SpaceCamp, and The Right Stuff. "Epidemiology": shows a viral epidemic at the campus Halloween party that parodies zombie movies, including shot-for-shot recreations of scenes from I Am Legend and Shaun of the Dead. "Advanced Dungeons and Dragons" to Dungeons and Dragons specifically, and the fantasy genre in general. "Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking" and "Documentary Filmmaking Redux" spoofs documentaries and mockumentaries — specifically, shows like The Office. "Critical Film Studies" looks like it's going to involve a spoof of Pulp Fiction. It actually ends up spoofing My Dinner With Andre. "Paradigms of Human Memory" is a parody of Clip Shows, but uses new scenes rather than actual clips from previous episodes. The result is that rather than a pleasant stroll down memory lane, the audience gets wall-to-wall Noodle Incidents. It's also a parody of the Jeff/Annie shipping community and fanvids in general, and specifically, this Jeff/Annie video. "A Fistful Of Paint Balls" parodies The Western, specifically the style of 'Spaghetti Westerns' made popular by directors like Sergio Leone. The second part, "For A Few Paintballs More" actually notes that it is ditching the Western theme for more war-themed movies, including Star Wars. Ironically, the title is a riff on the western For a Few Dollars More. "Competitive Ecology." Chang tries to see his security guard job in Film Noir style. An ongoing season 3 subplot involves Troy and Abed becoming fans of Inspector Spacetime, a charmingly even lower-budget spoof of Doctor Who. "Documentary Filmmaking: Redux" pokes fun at both Apocalypse Now and Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse. "Pillows and Blankets" is a direct parody of Ken Burns documentaries. "Virtual Systems Analysis" paused being an Inspector Spacetime episode to parody Grey's Anatomy. "Basic Lupine Urology" parodies Law & Order. "Digital Estate Planning" parodies 8-Bit Videogames in general "The First Chang Dynasty" parodies Ocean's 11 and heist movies in general. "Intro To Felt Surrogacy" spoofs The Muppet Show. "Basic Intergluteal Numismatics" parodies dark serial killer movies and TV shows, particularly those made by David Fincher (such as Se7en and Zodiac). "Geothermal Escapism" riffs on epic post-apocalypse movies — particularly those which show society degenerating into The Apunkalypse, such as Waterworld and the Mad Max movies. "App Development And Condiments" is reminiscent of pre-Star Wars cheap dystopian Sci Fi films like Logan's Run or THX1138. "Grifting 101" is a parody of The Sting, which the group even watches when they're planning their grift.

Troy and Pierce pulling the hot air balloon's cord before the guide gets in and when they're dangerously high in the air is what got the study group lost in the woods in "Intro to Felt Surrogacy."

Loony Friends Improve Your Personality
 Community / int_9525c766
comment
The episode "Studies in Modern Movement" deconstructs the Loony Friends part of the Loony Friends Improve Your Personality trope. After the strait-laced Annie agrees to move in with the eccentric Troy and Abed, she tries to go along with their zany antics and off-the-wall kookiness, but gradually gets more and more frustrated with their eccentricity and the selfishness, obliviousness, and annoying behaviour it leads to. The point is clearly made that while the Loony Friends may seem cool, wacky and fun in short doses and from a distance (such as the twenty-odd minutes you spend watching them on television), if you had to spend any meaningful amount of time up-close and personal with them they'd quickly become insufferably selfish and annoying if they weren't willing to tone things down a bit.

Cutaway Gag: The show used a number of them from time to time, increasing through the third season before backing off. The Tag (typically with Troy and Abed) tended to be an interchangeable joke that could be paired with any episode. An episode in the third season based itself around them, where flashbacks feature Jeff giving a "Winger Speech" over out-of-context adventures that we hadn't seen in previous episodes.

Foreshadowing: After the revelation that Abed can see the show's Plot Twists coming, he demonstrates Jeff's character trait of actually being bothered by things he pretends not to by showing a clip where he gets distraught that Pierce is at the top of the class. At the end of the episode, it is revealed that Pierce is actually a genius. In "Advanced Criminal Law", Pierce writes a song about life at Greendale which mentions "taking air conditioner repair", a major plot thread of Season 3. In "Football, Feminism, and You", Troy tells Jeff that he should accept what he's good at and maybe take a pottery class. In "Introduction to Statistics", when he notices Pierce taking his medication, Abed tells him a story about his grandpa hallucinating from taking the wrong pills. Cue Pierce taking what appears to be the most powerful ecstasy known to man. In "Intro To Political Science", Troy asks Abed "Do you just constantly have your own little side adventures?" to which Abed bluntly replies "Yep", prompting a saddened "Yeah, me too", in a high-pitched voice. Troy feeling inferior to Abed becomes an important point exploited by the vice dean in the third season, during the build-up to the blanketfort vs. pillowfort war. Additionally, one of Annie's campaign promises is that "the assailant known only as the 'Ass Crack Bandit' will be brought to justice." The search for the bandit becomes the subject of "Basic Intergluteal Numismatics" years later, in season 5. In "Aerodynamics of Gender," Abed's Robocop sequences foreshadowed the events of the next several episodes, including the blanket forts, Troy's birthday and the Christmas special. One of his mental notes says "Sell Group on Paintball Sequel." A few episodes later in "Intro To Political Science", the news blurbs mention the dean denying another paintball match and suggesting a "Western-themed end-of-the-year picnic." The two-part finale of the season? A Western-themed paintball adventure. On the opposite side of the screen from the notes during the Robocop sequences are the dates of Britta's, Annie's, and Shirley's menstrual cycles, foreshadowing the events of the very next episode. In "Epidemiology" Troy becomes the hero and saves the day by lowering the temperature of the air conditioning to get everyone to collectively snap out of their zombie state which foreshadows his affinity for fixing air conditioning units. In "Cooperative Calligraphy", Britta comments that Jeff usually wears different boxers - only Abed catches her use of "usually." He is later the first to figure out that they've been having secret sex in "Paradigms of Human Memory."

Grumpy Old Man
 Community / int_a1154544
comment
Pierce started out as a misanthropic, bigoted, but generally kind of harmless and Grumpy Old Man, even with occasional hints of a well-buried heart of gold. By Season 2 he's evolved into an overtly evil Manipulative Bastard who plays elaborate, cruel mind games with his only friends, gleefully abuses a suicidal classmate, and shows very little regard for anything except himself and his status in the group. Season 3 dialed him back towards his Season 1 persona, before Season 4 flanderized his Racist Grandpa side resulting in him becoming an extreme racist. The extent of the racism caused Chevy Chase to blow up on the set and quit the show. Season 5 settles on his season 1 and 3 treatment, as a misguided Jerk with a Heart of Gold.

Mood Whiplash: Inevitable in a series which insists on playing out typical comedy scenarios - but with genuine consequences and character development. For example, the story arc where Pierce gets injured in a wacky accident on a trampoline... which leads to his being forced to wear full casts on both legs for a good portion of the season, and become addicted to painkillers which nearly claim both his friendships and his life. Referenced by name in "Repilot."

Pottery Barn Poor
 Community / int_a4c5065
comment
Pottery Barn Poor: A source of contention for fans is the fact that the sources of income for almost all the characters are unclear. This ends in the fifth season, when the group is all hired by Greendale. Jeff deals with his lack of income and savings in several early first-season episodes and he's briefly homeless, but this is dropped in later episodes, and he always seems to have funds for whatever he needs. During this time, he's shown to live in a nice apartment by himself. Between season four and five, Jeff opens a private law practice and goes bankrupt. Britta is repeatedly established as being poor. Of the younger characters, she is the only one ever seen with a job—in "Critical Film Studies", she works at a diner, but gets fired at the end of the episode. Britta is also known to live in an apartment. Season six establishes that Britta mooches off of her friends, and her wealthy family have been secretly financing her without her knowledge. Troy lives with his father in the first season, but gets kicked out and goes to live with Pierce. In the third season, he and Abed live together in an apartment, but their source of income is never revealed. Abed is the only one who lives on-campus in the first two seasons, and then lives together with Troy in an apartment in season 3. He actually gets into debt with a celebrity impersonator company, revealing he has no source of income. Abed seems to have depended entirely on his parents until arriving at Greendale, and it's possible that his father still pays for his bills. Annie's financial status is actually the focus of an episode, "Celebrity Pharmacology." A recurring claim throughout season 2 and early season 3 is that she lives in an apartment in a "bad neighborhood." She tells Pierce that she pays her bills with money she saved from every birthday and special occasion (such as the "period fairy") she's had, which, although unrealistic, is at least more than can be said for the others. However, she runs so low on money that she is forced to take a bribe from Pierce. At the end of the episode she says she plans to get a job, but this has never been elaborated on. Some fans jokingly think she works at Dildopolis, the sex toy store below her apartment. In season 3, she begins living in Troy and Abed's apartment. Shirley, as a single mother, presumably received child support and alimony from Andre. They later reconnect and get back together. Later, she begins attempting to start her business, and Andre implies that he is the breadwinner of the family. Pierce is rich and the heir to his father's fortune, although he chooses to give it up to his half-brother Gilbert Lawson. He presumably has a large fortune for himself. Chang in Season Two. It's doubtful the school was paying him to show up to classes, given how grievous his resume-falsifying was, and he flat-out tells Jeff that his wife kicked him out in "Early 21st Century Romanticism," depriving him of whatever income she had. Chang squats inside Greendale for an undefined amount of time.

Doctor Whomage: The Show Within a Show Inspector Spacetime is basically just a bizarro universe copy of Doctor Who. Apparently within the Community universe, Doctor Who does still exist, but only as the less-popular ripoff of Inspector Spacetime.

Casanova Wannabe
 Community / int_a806691d
comment
Pierce in the first few episodes dressed in a slightly suave style, appearing to be a sort of Casanova Wannabe, and showed very few of his Innocent Bigot traits. It didn't take long for him to grow into the Pierce we know today of course, with the Racist Grandpa traits growing quickly and his would-be Casanova tendencies cropping up only occasionally.

Separated by a Common Language: Duncan peppers his speech with British-exclusive slang. Sometimes it's incorrectly used. It's eventually revealed that Duncan actually spent most of his life in America. Duncan refers to leaving his wallet "in the back of my lorry." While "lorry" does refer to a truck in Britain, it's specifically used for 18-wheelers, not pick-up trucks as Duncan implies. "Let's blow this pop stand and head out back for a spot of slap and tickle. That's sex, in case the lingo hasn't made it across the pond."

Adults Are Useless
 Community / int_a939d96a
comment
Adults Are Useless/Apathetic Teacher: A large number of the teachers, and to a lesser extent the dean, are shown to be questionably effective at their jobs. Señor Chang bullies his students, Professor Duncan throws a tantrum and blames a student when his experiment doesn't go like he wanted, and at least one chemistry teacher spends a large portion of a class answering a trivial phone call inside the classroom. Even Jeff, when given a job teaching law, spends his time on his phone, giving his students documentary box-sets to watch, instead.

Rousing Speech: This has become something of a Jeff Winger trademark. It's lampshaded in "Paradigms of Human Memory", where we see a whole montage of Jeff's rousing speeches during events from episodes that never were. Apparently this is something that happens to the study group whenever they do anything.

Held Gaze: Between Jeff and Annie, frequently, as part of their UST. In the intro episode for Rachel, Abed's love interest. She notes that these usually happen (appropriately) before The Big Damn Kiss. In the series finale, Jeff and Abed hug as part of their final goodbye, and then share a lengthy, meaningful look. Jeff subsequently gives Abed a second, deeper hug, which Abed reciprocates.

Catch Phrase: Played relatively straight with Abed's "Cool... coolcoolcool.," Parodied with Magnitude's "POP POP!"

(which Britta sometimes joins in on). Leonard's repeated use of the Bronx Cheer. Shirley also has "That's nice!"

Moral Myopia: Jeff points this out to Duncan in the pilot episode. Jeff is being more than a little hypocritical here, given that he's on several occasions a near-perfect example of Moral Myopia. Granted, he is gradually getting better, but even so. One particularly notable example: In the Pilot, having spent the entire episode manipulating, lying and cheating the other members of the study group to get what he wants, he's outraged when Britta reveals she's also been lying to him to try and expose him and when Duncan reveals he hasn't given Jeff the test answers he's been demanding throughout the episode.

Take That!
 Community / int_b53077b3
comment
Take That!: Repeatedly. "If I wanted to learn something, I wouldn't have come to community college." Combined with Take That Me: "Basic Genealogy": During Jeff's breakdown to Pierce after he sees Michelle dancing with someone else after she dumped him: "Modern Warfare" issues another one to Glee when the Glee club's paintball unit is told to sing something original for once. "The Art of Discourse": Abed explains how the absence of Pierce has left the status of group Butt-Monkey up for grabs: "Anthropology 101": It's suggested that Troy's "Old White Man Says" Twitter feed could be made into a TV show... then is immediately written off as a stupid idea. A hint to one of CBS' competing shows, perhaps?note And one that seems to have been heeded, moreover; the CBS sitcom got the boot after its first season concluded. "Anthropology 101": "Since you've clearly failed to grasp the central insipid metaphor of those Twilight books you devour, let me explain it to you: Men are monsters who crave young flesh!" "Epidemiology": Jeff throws another Take That! at William Shatner by mocking Pierce's Captain Kirk costume: "Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design": At CBS again In "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas", the first season of Lost symbolizes a lack of payoff. Doubles as a Shout-Out in a way. "Early 21st Century Romanticism" has Jeff railing against Barenaked Ladies. In "Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking" Abed takes aim at mockumentary shows like The Office and Modern Family: "It's much easier to tell a complex story when you can just cut to the characters explaining things." In "Critical Film Studies", Jeff lists "watching Cougar Town" as one of Abed's eccentricities that makes it seem like he's determined to make people not like him. In "Biology 101" when Abed learns Cougarton Abbey is only 6 episodes, Britta states how British television actually gives closure to its shows. "Regional Holiday Music" is basically a thirty-minute long Take That! aimed at Glee. Jim Belushi is a favourite punching bag on the show: Abed gives a rather subtle one in "Intro to Political Science" to the The Last Airbender.

Double Standard: If a guy in the show wants casual sex, he's shamed for it when a relationship gets serious. This happened with Jeff and Troy in two different seasons, with Britta in all cases of irony. in contrast, when a woman wants casual sex, she's not judged for it unless said relationship messes with friendship dynamics. Britta regularly hits on Abed and Troy's gaming buddies, and the duo is more annoyed about how Britta reveals uncomfortable truths about said men.

Precision F-Strike: In the episode where the group is visiting Pierce in the hospital, and he is using it as an opportunity to screw with them, he tells Jeff that he located Jeff's real dad. Jeff knows that Pierce is almost certainly messing with him, so after saying that he will go see him, he turns and says: "Oh, I should probably tell you; if you're lying to me, if my father isn't coming, if a car pulls up, and anyone other than my father steps out, say, an actor, you in a wig, if you try to pull any Ferris Bueller, Parent Trap, Three's Company, F/X, F/X 2: The Deadly Art of Illusion bullshit, I will beat you. And there will be nothing madcap or wacky about it." When the show was moved online to Yahoo! for the sixth season, it kept to the same network TV rule of not swearing as it did when it actually was on network TV... until the season finale, when Dean Pelton asks Abed, unbleeped, "Isn't the shape of your brain kinda fucked up?". Britta also says “this is fucking war”.

Abed's No Social Skills were emphasized with his Asperger syndrome played up in the early episodes, and also not yet seems to grasp the concept of friendship. After several years of being in a tight-knit clique of friends, however, he's become slightly more sociable and is now merely the oddball of the group.

Show Within a Show: Super-meta Abed writes and directs a campus TV show called The Community College Chronicles, with characters based on his study group. Abed's so well-versed in that he can use the show to predict what's going to happen to the study group next, down to Shirley being chased through the library by a werewolf - also making this a Type 4 example. In the season 3 premiere, two fictional television shows are mentioned - Cougarton Abbey, a portmanteu of Cougartown and Downton Abbey, and the fan-favorite Inspector Spacetime, an affectionate Doctor Who parody (although Cougartown and Doctor Who both exist in Community's universe—it's just that the former is a Transatlantic Equivalent and the latter is a more popular rip-off). Hilariously played with in the season 4 premiere, where Abed is told to go to a happy place in his mind. Cue an alternate multi-cam style version of the show (complete with laugh track and fake banner ads) playing on "Abed TV," followed by a cartoon version inside that one, where everyone's a baby. As Leonard so aptly puts it, it's "show-ception!"

Chuck Cunningham Syndrome
 Community / int_c33ba0a8
comment
Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Professor Slater after season 1, Duncan after season 2. Lampshaded with Slater in the season 2 episode "Political Science": Duncan finally returned in season 5, explaining he was taking care of his sick mother. His sudden disappearance after season 2 was lampshaded in "Intro To Felt Surrogacy": Aside from a blink-and-you-miss-it reference to his whereabouts in a season 6 episode, and a mention of his name in the series finale, Buzz Hickey's departure from the Save Greendale Committee is not addressed at all, he just disappears after the season 5 finale.

Couch Gag: Coupled with The Tag. Most episodes end with Abed and Troy doing/saying something funny, often on the couch in the library (making it a literal Couch Gag). Couch Gag Vanity Plate: "A Dan Harmon/Russo Bros. (word or phrase that changes every episode)" The design of the plate changes as well. "Troy and Abed in the MOOORNING!" "Troy and Abed in STOP MOOOTION!" "Evil Troy and Evil AAAAABED!" "Troy and Abed sewn toGEEEEETHER!" "Troy and Abed being normal." "Troy and Abed shooting LAAAAAAAAAVA!"

The Present Day
 Community / int_c6ab426d
comment
The Present Day: A rare example of a show that literally takes place as much in the present day as possible; it is implied episodes are taking place on the very same timeline as they're airing. On two occasions, characters have referenced the events of the previous week's episode as having happened last week. The first season's Christmas episode aired on December 10, 2009 and takes place on December 10, 2009; more subtly, "Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design" featured a Latvian Independence Parade, and aired on November 18 — Latvian Independence Day. The time when the season takes place (mid-fall through spring, usually with a break in the winter) corresponds with the time that most colleges are in session, even to the point that the mid-season break is the break between fall and winter semesters and the customary re-run period over spring break is the break between winter and spring semesters. So doing the episodes in a real-time weekly structure works.' This is also why "Paradigms of Human Memory" is so effective—compared to what we see in the episodes, there's tons of stuff we don't get to see, including entire episodes revolving around a ghost town, a haunted house, a shark hunt and a St. Patrick's Day rafting trip. Even when the cameras aren't on, the characters are still doing things. Similar to the Latvian Independence Day example, the upcoming pillow vs. blanket fight episode is airing on National Pillow Fight Day. Averted so far in season 4, which was delayed till February 2013 and yet its first episode still takes place on the first day of school in the fall.

Hilariously played with in the season 4 premiere, where Abed is told to go to a happy place in his mind. Cue an alternate multi-cam style version of the show (complete with laugh track and fake banner ads) playing on "Abed TV," followed by a cartoon version inside that one, where everyone's a baby. As Leonard so aptly puts it, it's "show-ception!"

The third season has also done a bit of a deconstruction of Jeff and Abed respectively; Jeff's role as Standardized Leader is being examined and his snide, aloof snarkiness has been shown to be concealing a rather messed-up person underneath, while Abed's Ambiguous Disorder has been put under a spotlight to reveal him to be not just a cool, in-control Meta Guy but an inconsiderate, damaged and controlling person to be around sometimes.

Paintball Episode
 Community / int_ca198bc3
comment
Paintball Episode: Happens Once a Season. The first season's "Modern Warfare" had an emphasis on Heroic Bloodshed type action. Season two had a two part finale, the first "A Fistful of Paintballs" leaned towards Spaghetti Western while the second was full on Star Wars "For a Few Paintballs More." Season three relegated the paintball elements to just a Flashback while season four had an Imagine Spot in an otherwise unrelated episode, while season five didn't feature one at all. Season six saw it return as a spy thriller "Modern Espionage."

My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels
 Community / int_ce9f550c
comment
In the pilot, this is combined with My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels when Jeff is trying to sell Britta on the idea that he's a Spanish tutor. When challenged to say precisely that in Spanish, he gives a supremely confident delivery that the audience (thanks to subtitles) can see is nowhere close. It is, however, in itself coherent Spanish ("I sleep late Spanish. One more hour. Don't scratch my car."), implying that Jeff knows some limited Spanish (but only what he would need to say to interact with hotel maids and valets) and is pulling a minor Batman Gambit on her, knowing full well that she won't understand it. He even includes the word 'Spanish' in Spanish in the middle because that's the one thing she'll be listening for.

Lonely Bachelor Pad: Overlapping with Feng Schwing, Jeff's apartment is a classic rich man's tasteful bachelor pad, to the point that it looks like it came straight out of a magazine. That means it's rather dull and boring, with almost everything colored some shade of gray. When he hosts a party, Annie comes over early to "help decorate," and within five minutes has filled with place with colorful pillows, curtains, and overall made it look like the well-loved home of a married couple.

Cerebus Syndrome

Cerebus Syndrome: Pierce's increasing villainy and peeks at other characters' issues made the second season significantly more serious than the first, and the third is building up to be even heavier. After "Community S 3 E 17 Basic Lupine Urology", there follows several more serious episodes. While Season 4 had a much lighter tone, Season 5 may have been the darkest season of them all. It starts with Greendale in danger of being sued, and everyone being worse off than before. And the next few episodes have Pierce's death, Troy's departure, and the Ass Crack Bandit episode.

Mundane Made Awesome: Jeff and Pierce's multi-costumed, multi-propped Spanish presentation, which gets horrified looks from the students and F/F- grades. "Debate 109" gives this treatment to debating club. "Somewhere Out There"/Shirley's Public Speaking Speech/Chang's Irish Dancing Montage. The entire episode "Modern Warfare" does this for paintball. "A Fistful Of Paintballs" and "A Few Paintballs More" follow its footsteps. The sailing course from "Basic Pottery" which is treated like a high seas adventure. The entirety of "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" is done in stop-motion, since it's from Abed's perspective. Abed and Troy rapping while inside their blanket fort bedroom in "Regional Holiday Music" get the music video treatment. "Virtual System Analysis" turns Abed and Annie playing and confronting some personal demons in the Dreamatorium into an Inception-esque Mind Screw. "Pillows And Blankets" does to pillow fights what "Modern Warfare" did to paintball.

Walking Shirtless Scene: About every other episode has Jeff remove his shirt, if not he is often in revealing outfits in some way.

Fake Guest Star
 Community / int_d72edeb0
comment
Fake Guest Star: Outside of the original Study Group, the only other people who were eventually added to the opening credits as the show progressed were Ken Jeong and Jim Rash. As a result, several cases of this resulted. Jim Rash was actually one of these himself before his Promotion to Opening Titles in Season 3. He is listed as a guest star in the first two seasons despite appearing in almost every episode and often driving the plot. He even had the first lines of dialogue in the Pilot. Jonathan Banks and John Oliver are listed as guest stars in Season 5, making them the only members of the Save Greendale Committee to have this happen. This comes in spite of them both being featured on the promotional poster for the season with the rest of main cast◊. Additionally, Jonathan Banks appears in all but two episodes of the season. Paget Brewster and Keith David are only credited as guest stars in season 6, though they appear in most of the episodes (in Brewster's case, all 13 episodes of the season; David appeared in all but the premiere).

Artistic License: For a community college, having alcohol on campus is a big no-no—even if everyone is the right age, regulations and by-laws prevent campus-sponsored activities from including it. This is especially important in S1E11; a lack of alcohol and the subsequent sexy activities would have made the last few moments much less urgent and funny. Played for Laughs in season 3, where we finds out Greendale students have lockers.

Parodied with Annie singing a "baby talk" song in a Sexy Santa Dress in "Regional Holiday Music", which also doubles as a dig against the creepy notion of women being sexier when projecting an infantile persona.

Hilarious Outtakes: The DVD Extras for every season include what are often lengthy behind the scenes bloopers. Recurring themes include Alison Brie's terrible freestyle rapping, constant Black Comedy Rape bits involving Brie, Donald Glover & Joel McHale in particular, Ken Jeong ruining takes because he can't stop laughing, everyone making fun of Chevy Chase and Don Glover imitating other members of the cast & crew to make Yvette Nicole Brown laugh.

Whole Plot Reference
 Community / int_e303d198
comment
Whole Plot Reference: The full-episode affectionate parodies: "Contemporary American Poultry" is Goodfellas, including the narration and even using "Layla" when showing Abed's control measures. Troy's subplot in "English As A Second Language" is Good Will Hunting with faucets. So really, just in reverse. Word of God, this was intended as a Take That!. This is made clear by the fact that rather than going along with the movie parody, Troy resists it. When Abed uses the same line as Ben Affleck - "the best part of my day is when I think you're not going to be there", Troy rightfully takes offence at it. "Basic Rocket Science" is Apollo 13 and SpaceCamp. "Critical Film Studies" is My Dinner with Andre. "Regional Holiday Music" is a Take That! parody of Glee. "Basic Human Anatomy" is Freaky Friday.

Third-Option Love Interest
 Community / int_e30a4813
comment
Britta claims she doesn't have feelings for Jeff, but choked onstage when she saw him with an "official" girlfriend, Professor Slater, and Troy had to snap her out of it by "being a friend AND a man." A few episodes later, Jeff and Britta hooked up in the middle of an intense paintball game. In the finale of S1, Slater and Britta both declare their love for Jeff, but he leaves and kisses Annie. Annie and Jeff continue to have big-time UST in S2 and a bit in S3 as well.

Flanderization
 Community / int_e5e6640b
comment
Flanderization: To the extent that "Repilot" addressed it on screen. Britta's Soapbox Sadie aspect was increased to the point of being a Straw Character, where she'll actively contradict herself within the same conversation just to be Anti-something; at the same time, Britta moved from being The Straight Man to a more sympathetic character, before eventually regressing into the Study Group's resident airhead. Abed was originally portrayed where his massive knowledge of movies and tv shows was how he interacted with and understood the world, filtering the events of the episode through a pop culture reference. A number of times he would learn that the situation is either not as applicable as he thinks it is or that he missed the original point of what he was referencing. In later seasons he is pathologically dependent on movies and tv shows in order to function at all, and his Meta Guy status almost reaches Medium Awareness of Community the actual show. Pierce started out as a misanthropic, bigoted, but generally kind of harmless and Grumpy Old Man, even with occasional hints of a well-buried heart of gold. By Season 2 he's evolved into an overtly evil Manipulative Bastard who plays elaborate, cruel mind games with his only friends, gleefully abuses a suicidal classmate, and shows very little regard for anything except himself and his status in the group. Season 3 dialed him back towards his Season 1 persona, before Season 4 flanderized his Racist Grandpa side resulting in him becoming an extreme racist. The extent of the racism caused Chevy Chase to blow up on the set and quit the show. Season 5 settles on his season 1 and 3 treatment, as a misguided Jerk with a Heart of Gold. Dean Pelton begins the show as a fairly incompetent administrator with an inferiority complex about Greendale. His campiness and sexual eccentricity, first hinted at in episode four when he makes a Freudian slip about "going both ways," gets quickly ratcheted up to him being a pansexual freak who is obsessed with outrageous costumes and stalks Jeff shamelessly. His habit of dropping "dean" into every conversation also starts in episode four and quickly becomes one of his major running gags. Shirley and her Christianity. Every season she becomes more and more of a hypocritical Christian fundamentalist. Her high-pitched, lilting sing-song voice also becomes much more pronounced after a while. Annie moved from being a driven young woman to an "Awwwwww" machine. Her crush on Jeff also moved from merely being a smaller aspect of her character to one of the more notable parts of Annie's identity. Season 5 dials her back to her original characterization whilst also having her undergo Character Development to become a more assertive and confident adult. Her Ship Tease with Jeff is also minimized quite a bit. Chang becomes crazier with each passing season, to the point that Season 5 opens with Chang himself outright admitting to it and moving back towards his Season 1 persona. Troy and Abed go from being merely being best friends, to so codependent on one another that Abed literally can't function without Troy. Individually, Troy becomes dumber and more immature, whilst Abed goes from being a reasonably functioning adult to suffering a mental breakdown over his favorite TV show being delayed to mid-season. Season 3 also has him moving from being a pop-culture encyclopedia to being almost entirely hung up on Inspector Spacetime, the in-universe Doctor Who. The Season 5 premiere addresses this, with Jeff pointing out how Britta went from being a socially-conscious anarchist to the show's Butt-Monkey, how Troy had his entire identity consumed by his relationship with Abed, and so on.

They also keep close surveillance all over Greendale, and their members reportedly had deadly air conditioning repair competitions (where the loser gets roasted to death in a sealed chamber). To a lesser extent, the Greendale Janitors and Custodians (note that it's not the same thing) turn out to have a hilariously convoluted hierarchy, and they use the most mundane of tasks (like installing a bulletin board) as bargaining chips to ask for bribes and favors.

Biting-the-Hand Humor: During the season 3 hiatus, the 3-part cartoon, "Abed's Master Key" took a shot at NBC's failure to consider online viewers, which had been determined during the second season comprised the majority of the show's demographic. The cast has a lot of fun with NBC's claims to air season 4 on October 19th. When the show was about to make its debut on Comedy Central after entering Syndication, they took the opportunity to take a shot at NBC's lack of promotion for the show. Season three opens with Jeff dreaming about having a normal, less random year is a direct reference to what NBC wanted the show to be like...and is totally lambasted with the fact that the dream takes the form of an over-the-top musical number.

All Just a Dream
 Community / int_ea85d6ea
comment
Season 4 begins and ends with episodes focused on change and what happens when the Study Group start their lives after Greendale. Both episodes also heavily feature elements of All Just a Dream, with Jeff and Abed flipping roles - It's Abed's fears at the start of the season, resolved by Jeff giving a Rousing Speech in Abed's mind; and the other way round in the finale. The first and last lines of the season are also variants of the "Troy and Abed in the Morning!" Mad Libs Catchphrase Running Gag.

Deconstructed Character Archetype
 Community / int_ec9a5f50
comment
Deconstructed Character Archetype: Pierce is pretty much a walking deconstruction of the "wacky old person" character. His attempts at humor end up being offensive, his insensitivity makes him seem like a jerkass, any slapstick involving him ends in injury due to his old age, and while his memory loss is usually Played for Laughs, at one point the study group takes advantage of it so they can cover up forgetting his birthdaynote a later episode revealed it didn't work. The episode "Studies in Modern Movement" deconstructs the Loony Friends part of the Loony Friends Improve Your Personality trope. After the strait-laced Annie agrees to move in with the eccentric Troy and Abed, she tries to go along with their zany antics and off-the-wall kookiness, but gradually gets more and more frustrated with their eccentricity and the selfishness, obliviousness, and annoying behaviour it leads to. The point is clearly made that while the Loony Friends may seem cool, wacky and fun in short doses and from a distance (such as the twenty-odd minutes you spend watching them on television), if you had to spend any meaningful amount of time up-close and personal with them they'd quickly become insufferably selfish and annoying if they weren't willing to tone things down a bit. Episodes like "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" and "Virtual Systems Analysis" do this to the Meta Guy with Abed, showing that rather than being a charming, in-control, Deadpan Snarker, they really act like an inconsiderate and manipulative person to be around, not to mention detached to the point of delusion.

The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: For a study group, they don't do that much studying onscreen - which makes sense, since that would most likely be boring and slow. Typical of this show, they lampshade this from time to time, as whenever they are reminded that they have to study, they are reluctant to do so.

Running Gag
 Community / int_f9f2c33
comment
Running Gag: Shirley's (never-seen) friend Gary, whom nobody likes. The Dean's Dalmatian-furry fetish is followed from its very beginning ("I hope this doesn't awaken something in me"), to its escalation (Dalmatian mugs, posters, and rugs), to its inevitable conclusion in "Pascal's Triangle Revisited." Troy and his propensity for "butt-stuff." People like to comment on the size of Jeff's forehead. By the end of season 2 he starts getting insecure about it. Shirley having been a mean alcoholic before turning her life around. The first season commentaries also continuously allude to (the non-drinking) Yvette Nicole Brown being an alcoholic. As well as Britta's "skankiness" (although Gillian Jacobs is the first one to use the term). Season 2 involved a lot of diorama-making, including a diorama of them making a diorama. Season 2 also involved no one knowing what Anthropology is actually supposed to be about. Including the Professor teaching the class. The Dean walking in and seeing Jeff in a compromising position, and then proceeding to check him out. Every time the Dean leaves the study room, he touches Jeff. Chang's inability to recognize backhanded compliments. Pierce getting mistaken for dead. Michael Haggins' song "Daybreak" finding its way into the show in various ways, starting in Season 3. Various characters hum it, and it shows up on the school radio and as elevator music. Annie swooning over Abed's impersonations. Halloween costumes: Jeff is always 'accidentally handsome' (handsome cowboy, David Beckham), Annie is obliviously sexy (lycra skeleton costume, Little Red Riding Hood), Britta makes an effort to wear an unsexy costume (squirrel, dinosaur), Pierce dresses as sex symbol from his youth (Beastmaster, Captain Kirk), Shirley's costume is always "unintentionally ambiguous" (Harry Potter [mistaken for Urkel]), Glinda The Good Witch (mistaken for Miss Piggy) and Abed's costumes reference his favorite films (Batman, Alien). Magnitude not saying anything except his catchphrase, "Pop pop!" which causes everyone to rejoice. Characters will make a suggestion to their group by pointing to individuals and asking the same brief question. ("Intervention? Intervention? Intervention?") This spreads to people who are not in the study group. The group (but mostly Annie and Shirley) saying "Awww!" in unison, and the Collective Groans to Britta's self-righteous statements. Troy saying: "Pretend like you're asleep!" The study group's habit of saying something aggressive, then rhyming it with a famous person's name. "TROY AND ABED IN THE MOOOOOORNING!" and the numerous variants. Various people (even a priest) telling Britta "You're the worst!", and accusing her and others of "britta-ing" when they mess something up or do something annoying. One character interrupting another by blurting out "let him/her finish!" when they mistakenly expect him or her to be cut off mid-sentence by the rest of the group. Annie being reminded that she lives in a terrible neighborhood. Annie and Troy don't understand some pop culture references because they're too young. After they ask who Sam and Diane are, Shirley snaps, "We get it! You're young!" The Dean and Chang replacing words with "Dean" or "Chang." Leonard making a snarky remark to someone (usually Jeff), and that person responding "Shut up, Leonard! I know\heard about [embarrassing fact about Leonard]!" Leonard usually isn't affected. Using Jim Belushi as a synonym for lousy and stupid. Behind the scenes running jokes: Alison Brie's rapping and predilection for handjob jokes. In the second outtakes reel the others start impersonating her doing the latter. Joel McHale repeatedly humping things, ranging from a dead homeless man to Alison Brie. In the season 3 commentaries, Joel McHale always introduces himself as somebody else, usually as Alison Brie.

Informed Poverty
 Community / int_fa9b0b5c
comment
Informed Poverty: The college itself. Despite their atrocious reputation and numerous alleged problems, their campus is large and well-maintained, and they have lots of money to use on various plot-relevant events (including redoing 5,000 posters, a paintball match, and a large statue, just to name a few). The show makes infrequent references to the fact that some characters have trouble making rent due to most of them being unemployed students. Jeff has difficulties maintaining his apartment in season 1. Troy needs to stay at Pierce's house for a season. Annie lives in a bad area and moves in with Troy and Abed in season 3. In spite of that, however, the gang always seems to have plenty of money to spend on their hijinks.

Romantic False Lead
 Community / int_faa71569

For a short time, Troy and Annie, before Troy started going out with Randy (it can be a girl's name too) and Annie generated some UST with Jeff. Annie clearly still carries a torch, though, based on the loud gasp when Britta says that she and Troy have something to announce.

Fun with Foreign Languages
 Community / int_fad7b727
comment
Fun with Foreign Languages: In the pilot, this is combined with My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels when Jeff is trying to sell Britta on the idea that he's a Spanish tutor. When challenged to say precisely that in Spanish, he gives a supremely confident delivery that the audience (thanks to subtitles) can see is nowhere close. It is, however, in itself coherent Spanish ("I sleep late Spanish. One more hour. Don't scratch my car."), implying that Jeff knows some limited Spanish (but only what he would need to say to interact with hotel maids and valets) and is pulling a minor Batman Gambit on her, knowing full well that she won't understand it. He even includes the word 'Spanish' in Spanish in the middle because that's the one thing she'll be listening for. Subverted when the gang walk out on their Spanish final to go and rescue Annie, and as they're leaving each of them talk to the replacement teacher and each other in perfect Spanish. Pierce, however, brings it back to form. Also Abed talking with his father in Arabicnote Albeit using literary language in an unnatural accent and with Pavel in Polish.

The Power of Friendship
 Community / int_faece9aa

The Power of Friendship: The Community universe seems to be fueled by this. The Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits work together to bring home a space simulator, make a bullied kid feel better with Dungeons & Dragons, help Pierce get his rightful inheritance in a video game, and save the school with an elaborate heist.

Good Adultery, Bad Adultery
 Community / int_faf4a043
comment
Good Adultery, Bad Adultery: Shirley's husband Andre plays with this trope; the negative consequences of his adultery and leaving Shirley prior to the first season are not glossed over, but when we finally meet him and they get back together in the second season he comes across as a decent person who made a mistake, genuinely regrets it and is making a sincere effort to turn his life around and fix things with Shirley. It's also suggested in "Custody Law and Eastern European Diplomacy" that while Andre's actions were the catalyst for the breakdown of their marriage, Shirley herself was not entirely without fault either.

 Community / int_fb9e25e9

Deconstructed in "Comparative Religion"; normally Shirley is a benevolent Team Mom, but in this episode her ability and tendency to use this role to be smothering, passive-aggressive and emotionally manipulate her friends through guilt trips is noted and called out, and it's pointed out that since she's not actually their mom she has no right to act in such a fashion.

Special Edition Title
 Community / int_fc8bc8e
comment
Special Edition Title: The Halloween episodes replace the normal cootie catcher drawings bearing the cast members' names with different, monster-themed ones. "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" has Abed, in his stop-motion animated form, singing the title theme with different lyrics. "Advanced Dungeons and Dragons" has fantasy-themed pictures, to a medieval rendition of the theme. "A Fistful of Paintballs" replaces the usual title theme with an animated sequence mimicking the opening credits of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The season two finale, "For A Few Paintballs More" replaces the main theme with a parody of the Star Wars opening crawl. "Basic Lupine Urology" features titles similar to those of Law & Order, right down to an instrumental version of "At Least It Was Here" In the Style of... Mike Post. "Digital Estate Planning" has the study group's portraits being rendered into 8-bit avatars in preparation for the video game they're about to play, complete with the title theme in instrumental 8-bit. "History 101" has Abed singing a rewritten version of the theme as part of his imagined "Abed TV" sitcom. "Basic Intergluteal Numismatics" has a montage over the evidence and news reports of the Ass-Crack Bandit as an Homage to the opening credits of Hannibal.

Society-on-Edge Episode
 Community / int_fca239bc
comment
Society-on-Edge Episode: This is a recurring situation. Greendale Community College is a sucky school and the students tend to get more volatile and over-the-top as finals approach. The major breakdowns occur once a year in-universe; which corresponds to one per season. In the past this has twice resulted in paintball competitions totally wrecking the school. In season three, the school loses most of its funding so things get even worse. An attempt to achieve a world record for the biggest blanket/pillow fort results in a civil war and a short time later the wake for a deceased student turns into a riot.

Will They or Won't They?: Jeff and Britta in Season 1. Abed invokes both this and Unresolved Sexual Tension in the same sentence, by name. In season 2, Annie references herself and Jeff with this trope. By season 3, Troy and Britta did this too. As of season 4, They Do.

Brick Joke

comment
Brick Joke: Abed has a whole subplot entirely in the background in "The Psychology of Letting Go" - he refers back to this in "Applied Anthropology" when Shirley goes into labor, to widespread confusion among the rest of the study group. This running gag of Beetlejuice. In "Curriculum Unavailable" the police officer tells the group they shouldn't keep their door open with a brick (as Annie said in "Remedial Chaos Theory") but rather than being for security reasons, it's because the brick is actually valuable.

Once a Season
 Community / int_ff9e9dde
comment
Once a Season: A Paintball Episode, after the wild success of the first season episode "Modern Warfare" the second season ended with a two parter. Recognizing diminishing returns, the third and fourth seasons relegated it to minor references and the fifth season didn't feature any paintball playing. The sixth season saw it return with a spy thriller approach. A Documentary Episode done by Abed, especially given that he is involved with the film club. The second season had a psuedo-Mockumentary in the style of The Office as the group try to help Pierce while he is in the hospital. The third season Abed does a documentary on the Dean trying to make a school commercial, quickly going out of control like the production of Apocalypse Now and IT'S famous documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse. There was also a Ken Burns-esque episode exploring the civil war Abed and Troy started over "blanket forts vs. pillow forts." The fourth season Abed does a documentary exploring "Chang-nesia," while the sixth has him do a wedding video.
