* BrickJoke: Combined with FunnyBackgroundEvent and ShoutOut. As Annie complains that there's nothing on Britta's playlist but Spooky Party, the ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'' soundtrack, and {{NPR}} podcasts, a student dressed as Beetlejuice walks by the window. This is the third time someone has said "Beetlejuice" in the course of the entire ''series.''

** 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. ** Britta seems to think that ''WarAndPeace'' is actually called Warren Piece.

Britta is throwing a Halloween pre-party party before the study group goes to the actual party. Abed and Troy show up as [[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.

The episode where they take the test has Britta telling Troy "Take it again!" very poorly looped in to prevent this interpretation; confirmed by none of the highly-visible tests being boob-patterned
One hour later, Britta has redone all the tests...and all of them except one reveal that the test taker is mentally disturbed. The group decides not to know which one is the sane one so they can all think it is them and leave for the party. Afterwards, it's revealed the sane test belonged [[spoiler: to Abed]].

** The group refers to this as [[PersonAsVerb "Britta."]] It doesn't help that [[spoiler: she graded the tests upside down, failed to notice even after double checking, and set the whole episode's plot in motion because of the misunderstanding.]]

** Troy and Abed reveal that they were already in their Inspector Spacetime and Constable Reggie costumes when Britta called to invite them to her Halloween Party. Chances are, they were dressed this way because they were playing in the Dreamatorium, which will be revealed in two episodes and which they spend a lot of time over the season [[InsistentTerminology rendering imaginated dreamscapes]]. ** Annie's story involves her trying to change Jeff for the better (with the [[ShipTease subtext]] of him becoming a more suitable romantic partner for her), only for it all to go south when he reverts to his old ways. In "Virtual Systems Analysis" later in the season, she ends up admitting to herself and Abed that she keeps trying to push Jeff into fitting various roles he's possibly not suited for because she's "in love with the idea of being loved" and afraid of being lonely.

** When Britta runs the test sheets again, apparently only ''one'' member of the group ''isn't'' violently insane, and it's [[spoiler:Abed]]. ** [[spoiler:Jeff might be sane, as he randomly filled out the test. But then again, considering the rest of the season as a whole is largely devoted to how screwed up he is, it's unlikely.]] ** Assuming this was the same personality test they filled out a few episodes earlier, [[spoiler:Troy might also be sane, since he drew boobs rather than answer questions.]] * PaperThinDisguise: Of a sort; Britta is trying to secretly psychoanalyse her friends to determine which one of them may be a psychopath, but almost everything she says on the subject sounds like she's quoting it verbatim from a psychology textbook chapter on how to secretly analyse your friends. Probably the only reason they don't suspect what's up is that she tends to over-analyse them anyway. * PersonAsVerb:

** When it's revealed that all but one member of the study group is, according to their psych profiles, completely insane, they collectively decide it's better that they can keep ahold of the comforting delusion that ''any one of them may be sane'' rather than knowing who is or isn't. [[spoiler: Turns out it's Abed.]] ** To be fair, it's possible that [[spoiler: Jeff is also sane - he states that he filled in his evaluation randomly, so the results of it are presumably inaccurate. The rest of the series as a whole, however, would seem to suggest that even with this taken into account he's still probably not as sane as he would like to think...]] ** Given that [[spoiler: Troy drew boobs (allegedly), it's entirely possible he's sane]].
