Basic Lupine Urology - S3-E17

Question: When Troy and Abed are showing the yam to a lady she tells them that their yam was about to bloom, and that it was stepped on. I don't understand how she couldn't tell that it had been boiled? If she can tell that it was about to bloom, it doesn't make sense that she couldn't see that it had been in hot water. Of course, she wouldn't be at Greendale (I assume she is at Greendale but I could be wrong) if she was that good at something.

Answer: It was part of the plot that when the boiled yam was dropped it looked like it was stepped on (which it never was). So there was no way to tell the difference between the flesh being soft because it was boiled or because it was stepped on (in the show that is, I don't know if one could tell the difference in real life). Plus, the rest of the yam wasn't boiled, so there was no evidence the yam was sitting in boiling water.

Answer: The implication is that Jeff will still be teaching at Greendale after Annie and Abed leave. As for who became vice dean? It's never shown, since it's not really important to the series.

Laws of Robotics & Party Rights - S6-E5

Question: Something I don't get... If Willy the prisoner is not really a killer, as revealed in the climax, then why did he try to literally kill Jeff earlier? It goes against the whole joke of the episode - that Willy is actually a fairly harmless fraud who never actually killed anyone despite his claims. He was just sort-of a loser who built a mystique around the fact he was (wrongfully) convicted of murder. The fact that he did try to kill Jeff therefore just doesn't quite add up in my head.

Answer: His attempt to "kill" Jeff was to roll at him as an iPad on a stick. He knew it wouldn't work, but it played to the story that he was a killer as he knew Jeff would tell people about it, or attempt to retaliate for it.

Interpretive Dance - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: You can see the play director telling a pianist with grey hair to "play something modern." About twenty seconds later when Britta throws her tea hat off towards the pianist, however, it's an entirely different piano player now, that has brown/black hair. (00:17:10)

Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps - S3-E5

Trivia: This episode features a pay-off for a joke that was established in the first two seasons. In season one, the character Professor Slater mentions the name "Beetlejuice" while trying to recall Britta's name. In season two, Britta refers to Jeff's underwear as "stripey Beetlejuice numbers" during a conversation. And in this episode, Annie says that Britta has the "Beetlejuice" soundtrack on her computer. As Annie says the name, the character Beetlejuice is visible briefly walking by a window in the background, his name having been said three times. (In the film "Beetlejuice", he is summoned once his name is spoken three times).
