* {{Deconstruction}}: Abed pulls a paraphrasing of Ben Affleck's "the best part of my day" speech from ''GoodWillHunting'' on Troy, to try to get him to 'use his gift' and become a plumber. The next day, Abed turns to find that Troy is no longer sitting next to him in class... but not because he's inspired and has dropped out, but because Troy has switched seats because he's offended that his best friend would actually think the prospect of him just leaving without a word would be the best part of his day. Turns out, that would actually be a really horrible and offensive thing to say to a friend, no matter how gifted.

*** The fact that Jeff knows Annie ''really'' well is what leads to him discovering she got Chang fired. Also, Jeff breaking down the door because he thought Annie was in possible danger, and then his decision for the group to take Anthropology. He even teasingly indicates Annie when asking three times like she did previously!

** Prof. Escodera treats the class to a ''real'' Spanish class, as in ''devoid of English dialogue''. The mass crash-and-burn from the whole class is practically an art form.

-->'''Pierce:''' heh, I'm an early riser.
-->'''SP:''' I'll say.

* SureWhyNot: After the Study Group walk out on the exam to stop Chang from killing Annie, Starburns leads the rest of the class in a walk out to ostensibly help save "Hannah" but clearly because ''no-one is even remotely prepared for the exam'' thanks to Chang's failure to teach them anything.
