* Variant in the ''Series/{{Community}}'' fanfic aptly titled "The Bet." Jeff and Britta get into an argument on whether men or women are better at going without sex, so they make a bet to see which of them can go the longest. Note that they're not dating each other; they're just betting on sex in general. After weeks of both of them getting more and more irritable, Britta decides enough is enough and cheats: She takes Annie out for a shopping trip, buys her some sultry clothes, and throws her in Jeff's direction at a dance, trusting in their years of {{UST}} to win her the bet. Except that when Britta sees them leaving together, she gets overconfident and starts drinking, and wakes up in the morning in some guy's bed.
-->'''Jeff:''' Let's just call this a draw.
