Zachary: Y’know, this one was funnier than I remembered. When I saw the wee preview yesterday, I thought, oh no, the one where Jeff plays pool naked. Unfunny and uncomfortable. Well, at least there’ll be a few screen caps for the lasses. But it was a good one!
Logan: dude, i think you need to step back and let me take over.
Logan: cuz it’s also about—well, just let me tell it and you’ll see at the end.
SO…the theme of this show was the difference between being cool and being cool with who you are. Jeff didn’t want to do his billiards class wearing the regulation shorts and T-shirt (cuz he didn’t think he would look cool in them), so he quit the class (we’ll get back to him, maybe).
meanwhile, the rest of the group decided to “Can’t Buy Me Love/Love Don’t Cost a Thing” Abed to help him get a girl. they tried to remake him, and even had him “practice” on Annie.
does this REMIND YOU GUYS OF ANYONE? like, maybe Zach on #tweetlikeabadboy day?
Zachary: Was I that bad?
Logan: you were worse than—i mean, better than—i mean…Abed was also a vampire, briefly:

Zachary: I don’t see how that’s relevant.
Logan: ok, shut up, I’m getting to the good part. after it didn’t work out with “Jenny” because she was already dating White Abed (long story)…
…the rest of the study group was bummed. but Abed wasn’t:
Abed: Everybody wants me to be happy. Everybody wants to help me. But usually when they find out they can’t, they get frustrated and stop talking to me. Or they trick me into buying them ice cream and then shove me in a clothes dryer…
…The truth is, lots of girls like me, because face it, I’m adorable.
Abed: And my aloofness unconsciously reminds them of their fathers…
…That’s why I was willing to change for you guys. Because when you really know who you are and what you like about yourself, changing for other people isn’t such a big deal.
Jeff: Abed, you’re a god.
Zachary: May I speak now?
Logan: no. see, this is the first time since we started 67 Days of Community that I really saw you in Abed. or Abed in you, whichever.
Logan: and that’s why Tweet Like a Bad Boy day didn’t freak you out the way it did me. cuz when you changed the way you acted, you didn’t really change who you were.
Zachary: Of course not. Why would it?
Logan: cuz of the way people reacted.
Zachary: Well, it wasn’t me, so I didn’t take it personally for good or bad. And it’s not true that it didn’t freak me out. It did, a wee bit, that anyone would find some of the more stalkerish tweets swoon-worthy.
Logan: do you think you’ll ever #tweetlikeabadboy again?
Zachary: Sure, if it makes you happy.
Logan: i’m not sure if it did.
Zachary: Then I won’t. What I will do instead for now is post these two pics of Jeff playing pool mostly naked:
