    • Goof: In the scene where Britta plays Jeff's voice mail for Professor Slater (19:25-19:45), the phone begins the scene as a Samsung Gravity but switches to a Motorola ROKR E1.

  • Quotes

    • Senor Chang: As punishment, because you two obviously don't have any girlfriends, escort me to the Valentines dance wearing elegant ladies pant suits.
      Troy: (laughs) Yeah, right.
      Senor Chang: (laughs back) You'll do it or you fail my class.
      Pierce: You can't do that!
      Senor Chang: (yelling) Have you met me?! (more calmly) I mean it...tonight, you are my bitches.

    • (Jeff's drunk dial voice message)
      Drunk Jeff: So, look--I am really into Michelle, and I don't wanna screw it up. She's a perfect girlfriend, and I want you to be as happy as me, because you're like my favorite friend so...(laughs) I'm sorry. Abed just made a turtle face.

    • Jeff: (about Britta) She has more fights about stuff that doesn't matter than a YouTube comment section.

  • Allusions

    • Pierce: Well, nice fix, Tweedle-Dum and even Tweedler-Dum.

      Pierce makes a less than graceful reference to Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum, two characters from the book Alice In Wonderland which was also made into a movie by Disney and Tim Burton.

    • Britta: Have a seat, Drunky Brewster.

      This is a reference to the 1984 tv series Punky Brewster, starring Soleil Moon Frye.

    • Senor Chang: Looks like the law firm of Seacrest and Slumdog's taking the day off.

      This is an allusion to American Idol host Ryan Seacrest and the 2008 movie Slumdog Millionaire.

    • The Breakfast Club

      The music and dance sequence while Jeff and Abed are drinking is taken straight out of the 1985 John Hughes movie The Breakfast Club.
