    • Jeff: Pierce mistook me for the Dean today.
      Abed: How did that make you feel?
      Jeff: I've become a stranger to myself. I'm bald now. I've always been bald. I really dreamt of having hair, and now the bald man is awake.

    • Dean Pelton: (about the bald cap) I don't like it. It's hokey. It's fake. Take it off.
      Jeff: ...No!
      Dean Pelton: I beg your pardon...actor?
      Jeff: I have worn this stupid thing for 12 days. I have made bald friends!!

    • Britta: I'm in Psych 101 and even I don't know what's happening.

    • (When Britta and Troy aren't hugging "correctly") Dean: Okay, if you get this wrong one more time, I'm segregating the school!

    • Annie: The Dean had his seventh epiphany today, which has given me an epiphany of my own: the Dean is a genius. He has to be! If he isn't, I've given almost two weeks of my life to an idiot. That is unacceptable, therefore the Dean is a genius and I will die protecting his vision!
      Abed: Are you by any chance familiar with Stockholm Syndrome?
      Annie: Is it something that the Dean created? Because if not, I don't care.
