* OutOfOrder: Shirley recognizing Britta's marajuana lighter and Pierce revealing he had sex with Eartha Kitt both refer to events in alternative timelines of the next episode to air "[[Recap/CommunityS3E04RemedialChaosTheory Remedial Chaos Theory]]". This introduces a little FridgeLogic when you remember that the events that allowed both of these things to happen never happened in the 'real' timeline of the previous episode, but both can be easily explained as having happened differently at some point between episodes anyway. Or, if you prefer more of a MindScrew, the WordOfGod-debunked [[EpilepticTrees but still popular]] theory that what we think is the 'real' timeline isn't the ''real'' timeline...
** To be fair, everyone knows or has assumed by now that Britta smokes marijuana, so Shirley could have just been making an assumption. Similarly, given Pierce's eagerness to latch on to any flimsy excuse to bring up his Eartha Kitt story, it's not hard to imagine that he just told everyone at a different opportunity.
