It’s the last day of school, you guys! Time for yearbooks and proms and meaningless platitudes, and if you’re at Greendale, time for some serious developments in the who’s-in-love-with-whom department. It was great to see John Oliver back as Professor Duncan, but all eyes were on Jeff — the lovable, lovable Jeff. These were the 10 best lines from “Pascal’s Triangle Revisited”:
“It’s called chillaxing! Duh!” — Garrett
“It’s like prom queen! You wear a sash, and there’s a vote, and if you win, they put a crown on your head, and I’m so jealous, Britta, I want to murder you! Aren’t you excited?” — Annie
“Before I respond to that, I’ll have to take an extra-strength vitamin duh.” — Jeff
“It’s called a beer bong. You’re not supposed to inhale, though — I almost died outside.” — Pierce
“Whoa! I can’t believe no one’s taken this cookie!” — Troy
“I will find a loophole…then I’ll kill you.” — Señor Chang
“Spray tan.” — Jeff and Ian, greeting each other
“Holy macaroni with pepper jack!” — Shirley
“I didn’t think more than one person would answer the ad. Yes, dream coming true!” — Dean Pelton
“I say things others won’t. That has value.” — Pierce
Troy and Abed provided their typical couple-style subplot, but the real meat of the episode came from Britta and Professor Slater vying for Jeff’s affection, and then both confessing their love to him at the Trannie Dance. (Oh, Greendale.) Well, that seemed like the meat of the episode until the very end, when Jeff and Annie passionately kissed.
Jeff and Annie have had intense chemistry all season long, but I thought “Debate 109” sort of settled it as non-actionable — Annie’s 18 (maybe 19 at this point?) in the world of the show, and Jeff’s kind of a sleaze, even when he’s on his path toward redemption. Much as I love the energy between Joel McHale and Allison Brie, this isn’t a couple I want to see go the distance.
What about you, PopWatchers? Pick someone for Jeff: Britta? Michelle? Annie? Persons unknown? Where do you think the summer will take our beloved study group? And how would you rate the first season of Community?
