Is there a trope about each member of a team playing a role in the stability of the team and without even one person, everything will go straight to hell for the team?
I don't know, but if you ask this question in Lost and Found then you might get answers.
Shouldn't we be less spoilery about the episode in the episode description?
I was think the same thing. It doesn't make much sense to conceal information when it was revealed at the top of the page.
Is this really a bottle episode? It takes place in one location, sure, but there are multiple different areas of the apartment and when I think bottle episode, I think "budget episode so they can spend money on more important ones" and this episode clearly wasn't a cheap episode.
It's a Bottle Episode simply because it stays in one place the entire time (besides the tag at the end). The cost really doesn't have anything to do with it, though I do agree that the apartment set didn't seem cheap.
Troy's and Abed's apartment will very likely show up in later episodes. We know from scoops that Annie will be staying there during the sixth or seventh episode. The fact that this is the first time we've seen a set that will likely be used later on doesn't stop the episode from being a bottle episode.
