After this week's somewhat disappointing episode of Modern Family, it was nice to know Community had an episode lined up to make up for it. Similar to the rest of network television, Community had a Halloween-themed episode in the clever veil of a "Dias de los Muertos" party.
The party was put on by Annie for extra credit for the first time in Glendale history. So what made the episode so fantastic? Was it Jeff pursuing his Statistics professor? Pierce running around in a Beast Master costume on a bad trip? Shirley dressed up as Harry Potter exacting revenge?
As funny as those plot lines were (and you can read all about them in our "Introduction to Statistics" recap), it was actually Abed dressed as Batman in the background that won us over. Abed did a Christian Bale deep voice as he lurked in the shadows until he came in and saved the day and then delivered the best monologue.. ever.
Now for the rest of the characters great Community quotes from the episode:
Shirley: My husband's been gone for six months, I think it's time I start embracing being single
Pierce: Message received | permalink
Jeff: I'm barely a student. I'm older than you, I drive a Lexus, I saw Ghost Busters in the theater, and look, my gums are receding | permalink
Jeff: Are you trying to get formidable on me?
Annie: It worked on pierce
Jeff: Infomercials work in pierce | permalink
Jeff: In the last two months you've doubled the national average for the amount lived per life time
Pierce: Well I do have a young African American friend
Jeff: But more importantly you're dressed like a gladiator in a desk fort you built during a bad trip | permalink
