* GoLookAtTheDistraction: Jeff's quote in this episode is used on the trope page.
--> '''Jeff''': Oh look, is that a reason to leave?



* INeedToGoIronMyDog:

* INeedToGoIronMyDog:INeedToGoIronMyDog: This line by Jeff combining this trope with LookBehindYou:


* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: After Lukka spoils the mood, a standard "[[SadTrombone Wa Wa Aa Aa]]". plays. Lukka's jazz musician neighbor is a real mood killer.

* PlayingWith/JumpingTheShark: Lampshaded. Abed has made sweatshirts commemorating the [[Recap/CommunityS1E23ModernWarfare paintball adventure]]. "It's all downhill from here" is printed on the back.

Added DiffLines:

* WholePlotReference: The Britta/Tror/Abed storyline is essentially a recreation of the story of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf"

Added DiffLines:

* BlackComedy: Lukka's reminiscing over his past war crimes is at least partially PlayedForLaughs, despite the fact that both the audience and the characters are rightfully expected to be horrified by them.


Added DiffLines:

* ConflictBall: Both Troy and Abed have a death grip on it this episode. To wit, they flatly refuse to believe Britta's claims that Lukka is a ''genocidal war criminal'' simply because she's "ruined" some friends they've had in the past by dating them.

Added DiffLines:

* CaughtOnTape: Abed has a video camera installed in his room which catches Britta stealing the DVD.

Added DiffLines:

* YouNoTakeCandle: Lukka talks like this at times.
-->"You have DVD blu-ray disc."

* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe: Chang gets himself a pipe in an attempt to look mature.



* HeyWait: When Britta is about to leave Abed's room, Lukka shouts after her "Wait a minute" but then it turns out he wasn't talking to her but spotted the blu-ray disc of ''Kick Puncher 3 - The Final Kickening'' on a shelf next to the door.



* OutOfFocus: Annie and Pierce.



* StrippingSnag: Chang's attempt to fix the pool table results in a girl getting her skirt ripped by a protruding nail.



* TakeThat:
-->'''Jeff''': Hey, who am I to stand in the way of someone trying to put their life together? What am I, daytime television?



* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Lukka applies his real world knowledge to show how it can be done. Though honestly any game that awards points for killing unarmed villagers is just asking for this to happen.
** It looks and sounds like a standard run & gun game, but apparently it contains sophisticated infrastructure systems to allow strategies like cutting off the enemy forces' supplies at the root by terrorizing the countryside. It seems the game is designed with cruelty potential on the genocidal level in mind...
* WasJustLeaving: When Abed wants Britta out of his room he announces "Britta was just leaving."

* {{Jerkass}}: Whether she ruins their male friends or not, Troy and Abed are pretty dickish to Britta this episode. They do acknowledge at the end that they've been a bit hard on her and resolve to treat her better, however.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Lukka is [[{{Series/Dollhouse}} Victor]]! With the Lubov imprint, no less.

Added DiffLines:

* ManipulativeBitch: Shirley is clearly not shy about using her pregnancy to guilt people into doing what she wants, frequently with the refrain "You're not gonna make a pregnant woman [do X]!". Taken to the nth degree in her argument with Jeff, in which she ''makes him storm off instead of her'':
-->'''Jeff:''' Let me guess: Iím not going to make a pregnant woman storm off?

* UltraSuperDeathGoreFestChainsawer3000: Abed, Troy, and Lukka are playing what seems to be an outright genocide simulator. It's likened to Lukka's [[spoiler:experience committing real genocide in the Balkans.]]
