Bon Voyage Troy, Here Are Your Best Community Moments

Thursday night is going to suck, because that's when we say goodbye to Butt Soup, the Disco Spider, and Butts Carlton. That's when Troy Barnes, Community's innocent and ignorant fountain of dim-wittery, appears in his what is likely his last episode of the NBC comedy (at least as a series regular). We've known about Donald Glover's departure for some time, since July actually, but now that it's thiiiiis close to actually happening, the sting of his exit is renewed.

To commemorate and celebrate both Donald's and Troy's contributions to one of our favorite comedies, we've compiled this collection of several of his best moments. Share your own favorites in the comments!


Ed. Note: We kept these mostly Troy-centric, as our servers don't have enough space to hold all of the great Troy-Abed scenes.


That's Racist!



This exchange between Troy and Britta:

Britta (looking at a Scantron test sheet): "Alright. Who did a butt?"

Troy: "They're boobs. And I don't know."


The Forrest Whitaker Eye:


This exchange between Troy and Pierce:

Pierce: "He thinks all dogs are boys and all cats are girls."

Troy: "There's no way to disprove that, have you ever seen a cat penis?"


All of "Introduction to Mixology," but especially this part:


Ditching Greendale's Air Conditioning Repair School and requiring it to start acting like a real school because it was weird: 


This sad realization: 

"I was gonna be the first person in my family who graduated from community college. Everyone else graduated from normal college. Now they're really going to give me a hard time."


When Troy met Levar Burton:


This other exchange between Troy and Britta:

Britta: "Thanks, but I think I'll find something more grown up to do."

Troy: "Fine. Enjoy eating fiber and watching The Mentalist."


The Spanish Rap:



This exchange between Troy and Annie:

Troy [rides into the study room in an ATV] "Good news, I spent all my money."

Annie: "Troy! You can't bring that in here!"

Troy: "Yes I can, it's all-terrain, dummy."


Troy in the chloroform scene:


This exchange between Troy and Jeff:

Jeff: "Any other meaningless conspiracy theories?"

Troy: "Yes. Did you know Go-Gurt is just yogurt?"


Market price:


This observation about Britta:

"You're the AT&T of people."


Magnitude's death scene:


Notches:


And finally, in a bit of eerie foreshadowing, it seems Troy may have known his destiny all along:

"A black person on a sailboat? I gotta see this. I'm in."

—Troy Barnes, Season 1's "Beginner Pottery"


Be safe out there, Troy Barnes. We'll miss you. And best of luck to you, Donald Glover, you extremely talented genius.

Two of my steadfast favorites are from the episode with the "That's racist!" exchange (which is probably my favorite moment of the series still):

Annie: Troy, I've been waiting for an hour!

Troy: It's all right, I'm worth it. Hip, hop, body don't stop, Riverside got the broom, don't need a mop. Put your team in a box, put a ribbon on top, we're not John Kerry 'cause we don't flip flop. Say ohhh...

Annie: Troy. Why are you doing our politically conservative high school's shamefully outdated fight rap?


And:

Troy: Oh bing, bong, sing along. Your team's Al Gore 'cause your views are wrong.

Also:
"I don't get history. If I wanted to know what happened in Europe a long time ago, I'd watch Game of Thrones."
"May your dreams be spooky monster scary and not grandma died scary."
"I attack him with my... additional notes."
And when he looked up "haha" in Italian, and it was "HA-HA!"

Troy: What's with the lava lamp?
Pierce: It's not a lava lamp. That's my mother.
Troy: OH SNAP! ... Wait, what?

I don't even know how he does it but Donald's delivery is so perfect all the time that he makes simple exchanges like this brilliant. I'm going to miss him so much :((

Set phasers to love me! When he's screaming in the room about "you can't disappoint a picture" is my all time favorite scene

Troy is by so far my favorite character, his loss is tragic to me. If no one else in the show had any jokes it would still be the funniest show on TV.

You reminded me of another classic:
"Oh, and for the record, there was an episode of Happy Days where a guy LITERALLY jumped over a shark! And it was the BEST one!"

Troy's behavior before and after he found out that Annie had broken Abed's Batman DVD.


If the person who uploaded this had made the video a bit longer, we would also have seen one of Annie's best moments.

One of my favorite, less quoted moments is when Troy tries to find out if Shirley and Andre slept together at Halloween. Glover's delivery is hilarious:
"Dead leaves, pumpkins everywhere...nature's Viagra, right? And then when all the pumpkins just start to rot, and the children have removed their outfits...because....they've already gotten their candy...?"

Also,
Britta: ...to meet different people.
Troy: STOP SAYING I'M DIFFERENT!

Saying goodbye - "Shirley, never change. Or do, if you want, I'm not your boss."

"We'll try not to embarrass you at your community college library wedding."

When Pierce is in the hospital, he wants to bequeath parting gifts and say his final words to everyone. "Final words? You're gonna kill us?!"

Another classic that gets buried underneath the more popular ones - the performance of Fiddlah Please with "It's Hard to Be Jewish in Russia!"

Great list! But!

"I didn't get inception. I DIDN'T GET INCEPTION. HOOOOHWHOAAAA. THERE'S SO MANY LAYERS."

That's my favorite.

This makes me incredibly sad. I can't wait for the episode...but it's gonna be a doozy. I hope Glover returns to the series for random appearances if we get another season.

I've always love Troy's relationship with Abed, but the first moment that it became something truly beautiful was when Troy first came through for Abed in a time of need:


His character really will be missed. On top of losing what is probably my favorite comedy duo of all time, Troy has grown be one of my two favorite characters on the show (I'm not sure if I'd put Troy or Abed as #1, I love them both so much).

Plus, of course there's Troy's hilarious reaction to the mouse, which this video cut off...

Absolutely loved that part. He had a major fear of rats and it was so funny seeing him jump up on the table and scream like a girl after the cage dropped and it first escaped.

I find it difficult to pick my favorite Troy moment because anytime he was on screen I knew it would be my favorite moment of the episode. He was my favorite character by a long shot and I'm so strongly going to miss his lines and presence.

Troy: Ooh, I can hear those fingers calling my name.
Girl in the back: Troy!
Troy: “Troy!”
Girl in the back: Troy, did you get my text message?
Troy: “Did you get my text message?”
Jeff: Um, I think it’s…
[Jeff points to girl in the back]
Troy: I’ve got to stop hanging out with her. She sounds like a chicken finger.
