NBC's Community has always had an amazing cast, but previously the show focused mostly on leading man, Joel McHale's character. Don't get us wrong, McHale proved with the Soup he could carry a show entirely by himself for thirty minutes no problem.
However, taking advantage of the rest of this amazing cast proves the show can be just as funny and lead to more unique plotlines. This episode, Troy took the lead, as the Dean tried to convince him to join the football team, while Jeff was more of a supporting character.
Also helping move the plot line along was Annie as she fought against Jeff to keep Troy out of football. Meanwhle, Britta and Shirley bonded in the girls' bathroom while the Dean and Pierce attempted to design a new mascot. Find out how successful they all were in our "Football, Feminism and You" recap.
Hilariously enough, Abed, who always breaks the fourth wall and talks about the show, decided he would lay low this episode. That's a shame cause he's normally responsible for the best Community quotes. Here's what the rest of the cast was able to produce:
Dean Pelton: Well look at this group having some of meeting and being so diverse. There is just, boy! There is just one of every kind of you, isn't there?
Pierce: Well, we are missing a pipsqueak, but we don't want one, so beat it!
Britta: Ah, Pierce, that's the dean | permalink
Britta: I'm willing to try some more mainstream feminine stuff.
Jeff: Well, then you should know that nothing says "I'm a woman" like... doing it with me.
Britta: Nothing says "I'm a pig" like you | permalink
Annie: I've been following you, how did you get Troy to play football?
Jeff: I'm not having a conversation with someone that emerged from a bush
Annie: Because I'm right?
Jeff: No, because I'm not in a commercial for a breakfast cereal | permalink
Jeff: I'm sure Troy will sign up for football if and when some accident damages the part of his brain that feels pride
