The two main storylines on tonight's episode didn't fully come together, but the seeds were planted for an eventual Jeff/Britta romance.
First, though, we learn that Jeff has been secretly sleeping with hot professor Michelle Slater. But is it just sex? After word gets out about their relationship, they must officially register it with the (hilarious) dean.
As you might expect, Jeff has a problem with putting a label on their sex and their sleepover, as he tells Michelle he has problems with commitment. She mentions how original this is and eventually convinces Jeff to officially date by... being pretty awesome!
While Britta has denied any feelings for Jeff for weeks (despite Shirley's constant, funny questions about him), she gets jealous when she sees him with another woman, actually acting mature and responsible.
But Britta has other problems to focus on, as well. She invites the group to her dance recital and is made fun of for participating at all in tap dance. She only told everyone about it because Troy takes a dance class, too, but he lies about his participation after seeing everyone's mocking of Britta.
However, the T bone comes through when Britta needs him most: freaking out on stage (after seeing Jeff holding hands with Michelle), Britta freezes up. But Troy tears off his clothing and comes to her rescue, leotard and all.
This wasn't the funniest episode of the season, but it does set the stage for Britta and Jeff to eventually date. Are you for that pairing?
