Trivia

In a meta reference, Abed explains that this episode is the third part of a trilogy that divulges group secrets, which started with Annie losing her pen and capping off what he says is the "Golden Age." The other two episodes of the trilogy are Community: Cooperative Calligraphy (2010) (season 2) and Community: Cooperative Polygraphy (2014) (season 5). Abed purposely neglects to mention Community: Intro to Felt Surrogacy (2013) (Season 4), where the group again confronted their secrets, possibly due to creator Dan Harmon's absence that season after being fired. Harmon was rehired in season 5 after Joel McHale lobbied on his behalf. See more »

Quotes

Officer Cackowski: It's a unique case, because it's hard to decide what laws are being broken. Unless you count the lunch lady's sex life.
[Everyone but Britta laughs loudly]
Officer Cackowski: Thanks, thanks a lot. Anyway, our city does have a cyber-crime division, but it's well, it's pretty new. Any leads? Officer Warburton.
Officer Cackowski: I want McDonald's.
Officer Cackowski: Wants. McDonald's. Some of you probably can't see from where you're sitting. It's literally a child in an adult sized police uniform. It's cute, but it doesn't help our situation.

Enjoyable overly politicized episode.
21 February 2020 | by marco-47826See all my reviews

For once. And it made me like Britta, when she stopped being a stupid follower and took a real stand. And refused double standards. No matter how awful this comedian's « jokes » were, THIS is also freedom of speech. The part with the emails leaking was fun too, and filled with juicy revelations. Plus Paget Brewster showed the comedic timing I knew of her from Friends and Grandfathered. And the season premiere. Really enjoying this finale season.
