Three and a half years ago, when I came to Greendale, I met six very important people— Sorry, seven. And meeting these people changed my life. Yeah, I’m sorry. I don’t know what to say. I’m so used to being the guy who can talk his way out of anything, but what do you say when you don’t want a way out? What you’ve all done for me is indescribable. It’s unbelievable. And my love for you is immeasurable. Even when you split it seven ways.
“Happy birthday to “Critical Film Studies,” the most brilliant half-hour of TV to arrive in this century. Community’s finest moment aired two years ago this week, the highlight of the second season. It kicked off the creative surge that led to Community’s third season, which remains the best season any sitcom has ever had. This is also the episode that turned me from a huge fan into one of those insufferable Community douches you pray never sits next to you on a plane. It’s a dangerous thing.” - Rob Sheffield celebrates the second year anniversary of Community’s “Critical Film Studies” - a.k.a. The 21st Century’s Greatest TV Episode

You have become something unstoppable. If crazy people can’t be at Greendale, where are we supposed to go? I prefer to hang out with cool people. People so cool, they care. If we have to choose between turning on each other or pinning it on some specter with unfinished pen-related business, I’m sorry, but my money’s on “ghost” Caring about a person can be scary. Caring about six people can be a horrifying, embarrassing nightmare, at least for me. But if I can’t say it today, when can I say it? I love you guys. So maybe we are caught in an endless cycle of screw-ups and hurt feelings, but I choose to believe it’s just the universe’s way of molding us into some kind of super group. I settled on a truth today that’s always going to be true: I would do anything for my friends. Helping only ourselves is bad and helping each other is good. You just stop thinking about what’s good for you and start thinking about what’s good for someone else. And you can change the whole game with one move.
