* ArtisticLicenseStatistics: Duncan's FreakOut at the end of his experiment isn't really called for if one considers that a single statistical outlier, even one as extreme as Abed, doesn't invalidate the results of the experiment (putting aside the problems mentioned in NoControlGroup). In fact, in a sufficiently large sample, one would ''expect'' such outliers to occur. the FreakOut likely happened because watching Duncan [[HoistByHisOwnPetard fall victim to his own principle]] was both [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]] and [[LaserGuidedKarma satisfying.]]

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Annie is left looking very shaken and guilty after Troy's breakdown and Abed's confrontation with her following the experiment.

Of course, neither the professor leading the experiment nor the institution in this case are exactly exemplars of scientific research...
