** Speaking of that episode, as we see in the fourth season finale, [[spoiler:Chang was still in power in the Darkest Timeline]], one year after season 3. Now, with the possible changes of [[spoiler:that timeline]], It could mean [[spoiler: Chang had Dean Pelton KILLED and replaced by the "Dopple-Deaner" with the group disbanded and none the wiser. Apparantly he also didn't feel the need to burn the records room down and might be even DangerouslyGenreSavvy to boot]].

** It wouldn't be out of character for Abed to have trained himself to be able to sit comfortably for absurd lengths of time, just in case he'll need that particular skill someday.

** There's a much simpler explanation: Abed is established as being face blind, so of course he wouldn't recognize the resemblance.

* In Modern Espionage, they all use Batman code names. Britta is Clooney, who is often considered the worst Batman.

* In "[[Recap/CommunityS6E01Ladders Ladders]]", Abed wrote a speech for the Dean to read as a way to inform the viewers about what happened to the remaining members of the study group since the end of the season 5. The problem is that Abed wrote the speech ''before'' he learned that Shirley had left, and yet the speech didn't mention her at all.

** Since the speech was delivered ''after'' Shirley had left, presumably the material pertaining to her was simply removed.

** After Abed discovers that Series/CougarTown has been pushed back to mid-season, Britta finds the British sitcom it was based on to fill the void, Cougarton Abbey. The title appears to be a {{Portmanteau}} of Series/CougarTown and DowntonAbbey. One episode of CougarTown had the cul-de-sac crew play a game where they'd combine the names of two movies in such a manner.

** Aside from a subplot where Troy and Abed are trying to watch ''{{Blade}}'' without interruption, there's not actually much to do with vampires in this episode... until you remember that the classic vampire subtext is of a mysterious man who has a powerful and all-consuming allure to women (usually metaphorically standing in for sex) despite being bad news for them, and who will, if they are allowed to sate their desires with him, ultimately lead them to ruin -- i.e. Blade. And Jeff spends the entire episode trying to figure out where this allure is somehow coming from. Hence '''origins''' of a '''vampire's''' (Blade's) '''mythology''' (sex appeal).

** Troy seems notably disinterested and reluctant to help Britta with her problems throughout the episode and would rather watch ''{{Blade}}'', which makes him seem a bit callous and uncaring. Except, it's clearly established that Troy at the very least has a bit of a crush on Britta, Britta's problems in the episode centre around an old boyfriend who she finds irresistible despite herself, and there are few things worse than having to put up with someone you're romantically interested in continually going on about someone else...

*** I don't want to upset the OP (s/he does make a good point about Duncan's morals) but although both events use the same term ("cheating"), getting answers to exam papers and Duncan's father committing adultery are fairly different forms of deception. My interpretation on Duncan's outburst about his dad is that it parallels to Abed's loss of his mother (for Christmas at least). We see that while Abed copes without his mother by wanting to spend time with friends and hoping to find a new perspective on Christmas, Duncan suppresses his anguish by undermining the Christmas spirit and criticism.
