'Community' recap: Drunk with chicken power

Posted on

Community-Poultry

Image Credit: Harper Smith/NBCIf this recap were last night’s episode of Community, words would be chicken fingers. And since I’m making the words, I’d be making the decisions. I’d be like Abed. Make sense? If you didn’t watch last night, probably not. But play along.

A shortage in the cafeteria’s coveted chicken fingers forced the gang to rethink their approach to obtaining the fried wonders. Rather than racing to the dining hall when the clock struck lunch, they found a better approach: infiltration. But before they could plant Abed on the inside, they get current fry cook Star-Burns (who is playing favorites when it comes to chicken distribution) fired.

Abed’s highly entertaining Goodfellas-esque voice-over told the story of the group abusing its newfound power, trading fingers for favors. Pierce got an entourage, Troy got a monkey (named Annie’s Boobs), Shirley got the attention of her dreadlocked mancake, Annie got a free fancy backpack, and Britta got British hairdresser. I don’t have to tell you that the house came crashing down.

Now, I don’t have fried chicken parts, but I have 10 funny lines/exchanges from last night. So let’s sit on a table across from each other a la Sixteen Candles and eat up:

Troy: I think I’m failing psychopharmacology.

Britta: Why are you taking that?

Troy: I thought it was a class about crazy farm animals.

“If God were edible – not that I’m Catholic – but if it was cool to eat God, he’d be a chicken finger.” — Troy

“I gotta stop hanging out with her. She sounds like a chicken finger.” — Troy

“His dreadlocks remind me of the Predator, which is weird because you’re doing the actual hunting, and you seem invisible to him.” — Abed

Jeff: Why do you have a monkey?

Troy: It’s an animal that looks like a dude. Why don’t I have 10 of them?

“Please rename that thing, and this time not with a contest on Twitter.” — Annie, to Troy re: Annie’s Boobs (…the monkey)

“…For your information, I don’t have an ego. My Facebook photo is a landscape.” — Jeff

“Can we make this quick? I have to give a banana to Annie’s Boobs.” — Troy

“I caught him stuffing my man full of chicken, and Tyler Perry has a whole series of movies about why that’s wrong.” — Shirley

“He released Annie’s Boobs. Annie’s Boobs could be anywhere.” — Troy

Now, tell me what your favorite lines/moments were from last night, PopWatchers! If you do, you’re streets ahead. If not, well, you’re streets behind.
