--> '''Kid''': 'Hey, you're not Drugs!
--> '''Chang''': [[LargeHam Oh, but I aaaaaaam! Disappointed? Did you expect me to stay the same forever? 'Cause that's not what Drugs does, baby! I'm gonna deep fry your dog and eat yo momma's face, and I'm gonna wear your little brother's skin like pajamas! I control your lives, and there is nothing you can do.]]

The study group is helping Annie put on a play to educate about drugs. Pierce has some ideas on how to 'improve' the performance, and follows Annie home to discuss these changes. After assisting Annie with a financial problem, he uses this leverage to get his changes to the play. When Pierce's scene stealing antics threaten to ruin the message, only Chang is able to right this wrong.

!The ''Series/{{Community}}'' episode "Celebrity Pharmacology 212" provides examples of:

* AbusiveParents: Pierce's father was a bastard.
* ActorAllusion: This episode [[BlatantLies has nothing to do with Chevy Chase's troubles with drugs]].
* BrokenAesop: InUniverse. Annie's anti-drug abuse play for middle schooler backfires thanks to Pierce's interference. The intermission ends up with a room full of middle-schoolers chanting for drugs.
* CallBack: Annie's bad neighborhood makes one last appearance. She lives over Dildopolis.
* TheCastShowoff: Pierce, in universe, derailing Annie's show.
* CeilingBanger: In the tag with Annie banging on her floor when she's kept awake by PA sales announcements at the dildo store beneath her apartment.
* ChekhovsGun: Those baseballs won't be making a reappearance.
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Chang's description of what "Drugs" will do to you. His [[ThrowItIn ad libs]] scared the child actors.
-->'''Chang! Drugs''': I'm gonna deep fry your dog and eat your mama's face! ''(makes crunching noises)'' Then I'm gonna wear your little brother's [[GenuineHumanHide skin]] like '''pajamas'''!
* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: InUniverse. The study group put on an anti-drug show for a group of elementary school children, but the kids love Pierce's performance as "Drugs" so much it backfires. The situation is ultimately remedied by forcing Pierce to leave and replacing him with Chang.
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: InUniverse. Pierce teaches kids to love drugs. Everyone is appalled.
-->'''Little Girl:''' I love you, Drugs!
* FreudianExcuse: Shown in a childhood film. Pierce's inappropriateness, overzealous creativity, and pathological need to be accepted at all costs are all possibly due to frustrations getting attention from his father.
* FriendsRentControl: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. Annie only has enough money to afford a one-room apartment in a [[RunningGag terrible neighborhood]] over a dildo store.
* FriendToAllChildren: The kids all love Pierce's antics...[[RootingToTheEmpire too bad he's playing Drugs.]]
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: As the Dean audibly muses over how Jeff 'looks sexy even in a coffin', the girl sitting next to him slowly turns her head to stare at him.
* GenreSavvy: Abed, as per usual. He knew from the very beginning that Jeff PlayingCyrano for Britta wasn't going to end well.
-->'''Abed''': How could you think that was a good idea?
-->'''Jeff''': I've got a better question. How could it not be a ''great'' idea?
-->'''Jeff''': Abed, we screwed up. You know that text we sent? It was to Britta's nephew. He sent her an emotipenis! What are we gonna do?
-->'''Abed''': ''[stares silently at Jeff]''
-->'''Jeff''': Fine! Screw you, Abed, I can fix this.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
-->'''Abed:''' Do you think bees ever eat their own honey?\\
'''Troy:''' I'm sure they've at least tasted it.
** "[[UnusualEuphemism Front]] [[CompensatingForSomething Stinger]]"
* IncestSubtext
* InadvertentEntranceCue / IncomingHam: Parodied:
-->'''Shirley:''' That's a suicide mission!\\
'''Chang:''' Did someone say ''crazy '''PERSOOOOOON'''''?!\\
'''Everyone:''' No.\\
'''Chang:''' Well, ''I'' heard it.
* InsultBackfire: {{Lampshaded}}.
-->'''Annie:''' You don't count, Britta, you don't respond to anything appropriately.\\
'''Britta:''' ''Thank'' you!
* InterchangeableAsianCultures: Chang apparently suffers from this.
-->'''Chang:''' Is it because I'm Korean?\\
'''Shirley:''' You're Chinese.\\
'''Chang:''' Like there's a difference.
** Also LampshadeHanging. Chang is being played by Ken Jeong, who's Korean-American.
* LoveLetterLunacy: Well, more like Sexting Psychosis, but still.
* ManipulativeBastard: Pierce dials it up this time.
* MistakenMessage
* PlayingCyrano: Jeff tries to do this for Britta. [[HilarityEnsues It does not go well.]]
* RealitySubtext: There's an unfortunate parallel between Pierce's complaints that he's being underutilized and {{Creator/Chevy Chase}}'s own [[CreatorBacklash infamous]] problems with the show. One cannot imagine that having an episode making this obvious comparison helped the situation.
* ReplacementScrappy / TheOtherDarrin: An {{Invoked}} In-universe example. Pierce's character Drugs from the school play becomes the most [[DracoInLeatherPants popular character]], leaving a room-full of middle-schoolers shouting for "Drugs." The gang re-casts Drugs as Chang, so the audience will hate the character.
* ShoutOut: Abed apparently thought smoking weed just made people [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo paint vans and solve mysteries]].
* ThatCameOutWrong:
--> '''Pierce:''' Don't expect me to visit you at night with a generous spirit again!
--> ''[cue looks of disgust from the rest of the group]''
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The episode started off as an attempt to mirror Chevy Chase's tenure on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''. The bee costumes are an allusion to the fistfight between Chase and Bill Murray when the former was a guest host in the second season, which was allegedly broken up by a bee-costumed John Belushi.
