Abed and Troy show up as [[JustForFun/InspectorSpacetime the Inspector and the Constable]] and Jeff shows up as one of those [[TheFastAndTheFurious Fast and Furious guys]]. When he goes to leave, however, Britta stops him and reveals the truth.

** Jeff doesn't know which of TheFastAndTheFurious guys he's dressed as because "I don't watch that shallow crap. I just pick a costume girls'll like."

** InUniverse; Shirley seems to think that you can snort marijuana. Also, that NPR is a music station that partying kids would be listening to Death Metal on. Also, Britta seems to think that ''WarAndPeace'' is actually called Warren Piece.

Shot back at Abed when Annie's reaction at his story being a strictly logical defiance of all horror tropes (and absolutely nothing else) is clear disgust and asking Abed whether or not he's actually planning to kill his characters.

Added DiffLines:

* RationalFic: DeconstructedTrope with Abed's story: Defying any and all Tropes that would make a story exciting because of the author's desire to follow rationality instead makes the audience bored and ''even disgusted''. There is a reason why the NecessaryWeasel exists, after all.

** Annie and Shirley's stories appear to have been a little influenced by ''{{Twilight}}'' and ''LeftBehind'' respectively. Britta's story is a version of the popular [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hook "hookman" urban legend]]. Troy's story is reminiscent of ''TheHumanCentipede''.

'''Britta's story''' starts off with Britta and Jeff making out in a car when they are [[http://www.snopes.com/horrors/madmen/hook.asp informed by the radio that an escaped mental patient with a hook thingy for a hand (you know what I mean)]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment has escaped and is on the loose and stuff]]. Jeff gets out the car and the escaped mental patient kills him. Back at the study group, Abed complains that he didn't care for the characters, as they were stupid and didn't act like people actually would. So he tells his version of the story.

* {{Deconstruction}} of GenreSavvy and RationalFiction as the characters in-verse point out how Abed's story is just boring and lack suspense in this regard.

** Abed's story is overly logical and lacks emotional resonance, more concerned with filling plot-holes and avoiding cliches, unrealistic actions and {{Contrived Coincidence}}s than actually telling the story;

* IToldYouSo: In Britta's story, "Britta" feels the need to point this out to "Jeff". While he's being ''stabbed to death by a serial killer''.
