* {{Hypocrite}}: The girls don't come out of this episode particularly well. After making snide comments about Jeff and Troy's competitiveness during basketball, their subplot explores ''their'' competitiveness towards other women. While they start off trying to take down a group of bullies a peg or two, their exploitation of Abed leads them to become DrunkWithPower and become bullies themselves. And while they callously exploit Abed's ability to spot the flaws of others with laser-sharp precision, they're insulted and horrified when he starts doing it to ''them''.

* HypocriticalHumor: The episode opens with Annie, Britta and Shirley making some veiled snide comments about Troy and Jeff as they play basketball disguised as a conversation about male competitiveness as expressed through sports, in which Britta argues that it's an attempt to destroy their 'sensitivity' towards others. Their portion of the plot deals with ''female'' competitiveness as expressed through exploiting anxieties, which leads them to lose their sensitivity towards others by becoming bullies.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: Abed (who has incidentally been viewing the world through a very ''Terminator''-esque RoboCam all episode) gives Megan his "destruct codes".
