What a great fucking episode to move into the Olympic hiatus with, right? Britta drunk dials Jeff. Troy and Pierce wear pretty, pretty, pantsuits. Abed and Jeff get wasted. Senor Chang dances. I fucking love this show! (I WILL fill my quota of “fucks” today.) Maybe I liked this episode so much because we got some obvious movement toward the ultimate Jeff and Britta hookup, so it left me satisfied, even though I was forced to endure Professor Slutty for yet another episode. I hope she gets lost during the Olympics. I LOVE that Britta drunk dialed Jeff (oh, the days) and I love that Jeff was so concerned about Britta that he felt the need to drunk dial her back. So. Cute.
Hands down, the funniest part of the night was Jeff and Abed getting all shit-faced in the name of all things Britta. I am all for getting wasted for a good cause and Jeff’s deeply repressed love for Britta is a mighty fine reason to condone binge drinking in my book. I had to rewatch the scene a few times because there are just so many great pop culture references smashed all up in there! I mean, come on! Abed, Jeff and Pizza Guy were busting out the Breakfast Club dance moves! Breakfast Club DANCE MOVES, people … do you not feel the same level of EPIC that I do about the Breakfast Club references? It doesn’t really get any better than that! And poor, hung over Abed couldn’t remember Molly Ringwald’s name and called her Molly Ringworm – classic. Oh, yeah…holy hot Jeff Winger muscles, did anyone else catch that?
Senor Chang was on fire in this episode with his bullshit radar and now legendary dance moves. Love me some Senor Chang! Wow…I never thought in a million years that I would type that sentence.
And once again Abed was on it in this episode. I loved his overuse of inflection when being sarcastic…which brings me to another point: how do you type inflection? Why is there not a uniform sarcasm font? Someone needs to call the Internet authorities because I think this is an issue that needs to be addressed immediately.
I would also like to take the time out to thank the writers of Community for teaching me yet another useless acronym – BCI or Booty Call Implications. Not that I don’t think it’s funny, it’s just I’m married and unfortunately sober and will probably never get a chance to send or receive a BCI. So, it makes me kind of sad, in a seriously fucked up way.
On another note, sometimes I feel really stupid when watching shows like 30 Rock and Community because I don’t always get all of the references, and then I’m all, duh Nikki, how smart do you need to be to understand the references in a 30 fucking minute NBC sitcom? Am I the only one who feels this way sometimes? Like the MASH episode – yeah I figured out that they were playing on MASH and all, but I was lost beyond that and I felt like a fucking moron. So, I guess I really liked this episode because there were a lot of references that I did understand. Yeah me – I am not a fucking idiot because I grew up in the 90’s and watched The Breakfast Club 627 times! (that sarcasm font would be really fucking handy right now.) What about you – what were your favorite references in this episode?
There were a lot a really great lines in this episode, but this was my favorite of the night:
Abed: You’ve been acting your whole life. It’s time to pass that act up, and find the actor that’s playing you.
Jeff: Oh, they’re gonna love you in California.
What did you guys think? Your favorite lines? Moments? Did you like the Jeff and Britta stuff? And most importantly, how do you think you communicate sarcasm in writing? Comments!
