* SoundtrackDissonance: The song "Roxanne" by ThePolice (which plays on an iPod speaker in six of the seven timelines) becomes this in Timeline 5 during the chaos that erupts with Pierce being shot and the apartment catching on fire.

[[GenreSavvy Just as Abed predicted]], the die roll causes the episode to split into six different stories depending on who went down to get the pizza.

* ExpendableAlternateUniverse: Things ''really'' go downhill for the poor "darkest timeline" study group.



-->'''Jeff:''' "Britta, you put one wash-away blue streak in your hair and I lost an '''arm'''."\\
'''Britta:''' "Exactly! Life got '''dark'''!"

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the canon storyline, when everyone is calling Jeff out on his manipulation for not getting the pizza in the other storylines, according to the closed captions, someone in the group called him an "asshole".

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: A downplayed example. Annie removes the brick propping open the apartment door because she reasons that it might allow undesirables to enter the building. Abed points out that it was also what was allowing their guests to enter the building without someone constantly going up and down to the door to let them in. Furthermore, the fact that the brick isn't there to let the pizza man come up kicks off the dice roll that creates the seven different timelines.

** Also downplayed: Jeff colludes with the other members of the group to secretly refuse to eat the food that Shirley bakes in order to get her to confront her excessive baking. In the timeline where this is revealed, Shirley storms out angrily. In another timeline, Shirley reveals that the only reason she bakes so much is that she fears that the other members exclude her and baking is her way of feeling included. Jeff's plan unwittingly validated Shirley's insecurities.

** The effects of whoever leaves to get the pizza are implied to represent what would happen if that person left the group for good. Or is it meant to represent what would happen if that person became TheLeader? ([[DirtyOldMan Pierce's]] timeline has the most ShipTease, [[TheSpock Abed's]] timeline has everyone getting over-emotional and arguing with each other, [[TheDitz Troy's]] timeline ends in disaster, etc.) And of course, [[TheHero Jeff's]] timeline is the one with the HappyEnding.

** Many theorize that different timelines are meant to be the main one. WordOfGod says no, [[TrollingCreator he's not]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards that evil.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: We never find out if the alternate timelines truly exist or if they're just part of Abed's imagination. [[spoiler: [[Recap/CommunityS3E22IntroductionToFinality later]] [[Recap/CommunityS4E13AdvancedIntroductionToFinality episodes]] with the Evil Study Group leave it ambiguous as well, although the latter suggests it's ''Jeff'' imagining them instead of Abed.]]
