* BaitAndSwitchAccusation: Britta exclaims "Busted!" when bumping into Jeff and he shrugs thinking she has seen through his scheme but then it turns out she was referring to herself being caught smoking a cigarette.



* FeedbackRule: Can be heard in the opening scene when the Dean starts his speech.



* GoYeHeroesGoAndDie: The Dean's attempt at a RousingSpeech to welcome and inspire the new students turns into one of these when he discovers he's lost the middle of his speech -- which, unfortunately, was the bit with all the rousing, welcoming and inspiring stuff in it. What he has is basically just calling them losers.

-->'''The Dean''': You've heard it's a loser college for remedial teens, 20-something dropouts, middle-aged divorcees, and old people keeping their minds active as they circle the drain of eternity. [[CouldSayItBut That's what you heard. However,]] ... [[{{Subverted}} I wish you luck!]]... Okay, you know... Oh-oh. Okay, [[DoubleSubverted there's more to this speech.]] There's actually a middle card that is missing.



* InstantlyProvenWrong: When Duncan exclaims that Jeff has insulted the integrity of the entire institution, he is confronted with the sight of a "waster" under his window.



-->'''Jeff:''' I'm sorry, I was raised on TV, and I was conditioned to believe that every black woman over fifty is a cosmic mentor.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: As anyone who has ever attended college can tell you, exams are often created on the fly by professors, based on the material that has been covered in the class thus far. This means that Jeff's plan to extort the answers to all of his future tests out of Duncan had a gaping hole in it: Even if Duncan had held up his end of the bargain, there was no guarantee that the answers Jeff received would be any good when it was time for actual exams.

** Jeff's own confident assertion to Duncan that right or wrong doesn't matter comes back to bite him when Duncan later points out that, by Jeff's own logic, he's under no obligation to give Jeff the test answers just because Jeff got him out of a jam once.

-->'''Jeff:''' We're the only species on Earth that observes [[DiscoveryChannel Shark Week]]. ''Sharks'' don't even observe Shark Week; but we do. For the same reason, I can pick up this pencil, tell you its name is Steve, and then go like this; ''[snaps it in half; Abed gasps in horror]'' and part of you ''dies'', just a little bit on the inside. Because people can connect with ''anything''. We can sympathize with a pencil, we can forgive a shark, and [[Film/GoodWillHunting we can give Ben Affleck an Academy Award for Screenwriting]].\\

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Troy is deeply impressed by Jeff's insight about his motives for either wearing his jacket because other people like or to spite them for disliking it ("either way, it's for them; ''that's'' what's weak."). The series would in later episodes make something of a subplot about Troy being insecure over measuring himself up against Jeff as a person and as a man.

** Britta tells Jeff that she values honesty above all else, yet freely admits that she lied to him to get him to clean up his mess, foreshadowing that she's not the OnlySaneMan she initially appears to be.
