Troy: At the risk of discovering I'm living two parallel lives like that guys in Awake, don't you already have a date to the dance?
Abed: Yep, now I have two, which means I can do the classic two dates in one night sitcom trope. I'll get to wear two outfits, mix up their names, maybe hide under a table.
Troy: What about growth?
Abed: I tried to go in a more grounded direction, but I still ended up in a comically implausible situation.
