Lyrics to Abed and Troy's rap: Where is the library? My name is T-Bone the disco spider. Disco, doll, the library is in big mustache, dog, lard. Lard, mustache, huge, little head is ice cream, beer is good. Good day, I like cold potatoes, the goat's mustache is Cameron Diaz.

Episode Quotes
Annie: You can hang the Checata Panecos' piñata.
Britta: You guys realize he was beaten to death, right?
Shirley: That's where we got the idea from.
Annie: Poignant.

Jeff: This is a fine enough way to spend an evening devoid of hope, but the woman I kind of like is out there in the moonlight caring about something stupid. And this is my chance to show her that I care enough to act like I care about it too.

Annie: You're like Jodie Foster or Susan Sarandon. You'd rather keep it real than be likable.

Britta: Look, Jeff, you're harmless enough to me because a life full of ups and downs has given me douche-ray vision.

Britta: I think I was a little too harsh on you. I'm not perfect.
Jeff: I am. I'd be happy to show you the ropes

Shirley: Pierce has always been on my watch list.
Troy: That dude is crazy. He told me girls have two pee holes.
