Meanwhile, Troy has taken to messing with Abed, which backfires when Abed decides to respond in kind -- however, while Abed's own understanding of sarcasm-based humor is [[DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm comparatively weak]], another more disturbing, alien picture of him begins to be painted.

'''Abed:''' You were lying?\\
'''Troy:''' Yeah, as a joke. You've never had somebody mess with you before?\\
'''Abed:''' Yes, just kidding, no. Like that? ...This isn't a table. ''(Laughs)'' ...That's funny.

* StylisticSuck: Double subverted; for the most part Abed's efforts to persuade Troy he's an alien are quite convincing and credible, and he even goes to the trouble of renting green screen to produce some reasonably convincing 'alien communicator' effects. Then this trope fully kicks in when Garrett appears in a less-than-convincing alien suit badly acting the same way Abed was, unaware that Troy already knows the score.

Troy in fact cites the obvious effort that Abed is putting into his production as a reason why it's utterly insane and creeping him out. Then this trope fully kicks in when Garrett appears in a less-than-convincing alien suit badly acting the same way Abed was, unaware that Troy already knows the score.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The school song Pierce finally creates is a thinly-veiled (as in "veil, what veil?") knockoff of Bruce Hornsby and the Range's "The Way It Is." Jeff and Abed [[LampshadeHanging hang a lampshade all over this]].
