The title is clever. Instead of 101, this episode being 1x09.
All right, show of hands, how many of us had the exact same reaction Jeff did when Annie let her hair down and let her milky heaving bosom dangle over Jeff's shoulder?
Personally, I side with the belief that Man is Good, but I loved how the show made me despise that position by having that irritating jerk in the wheelchair defend it. This is why I watch pro wrestling: wheelchair or not, if the guy in it is a jerk you don't like, you can still kick his ass and have the crowd on your side for it. In no other walk of life is that acceptable.
Anyway, I actually hope they don't pursue Jeff and Annie, just because of the age difference. She IS only 18. He's what, twice her age? It's a bit much. That would wrinkle my brain.
Actually, my reaction when she put down her hair was to realize how much younger she looks with her hair up. When she put her hair down, all of a sudden she really looked her age. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, just that I was amazed that something as simple as hair style knocked like 10 years off her appearance.
It makes sense that Annie would be the one to cause Simmons to fall. Jeff does have the heart of gold that he hides, but Annie seems to have the real cutthroat instinct of the group. That whole debate was well done.
I get the feeling that at some point, Abed officially has to break the fourth wall. Not just in the sense that he admits that the whole set up is like a sitcom, but at some point he has to admit that it is a sitcom. I loved how Annie and Jeff kissing became a self-fulfilling prophecy.
I also loved the sly dig at the E! network thrown at Jeff.
ETA: Shippewreck, thanks for the link. (I think...)

It's a dang miracle. Stakes! Stakes so high that it felt like this could've been the "and a movie." Serious lighting. They walked back not only the gas leak year but many of the broader excesses of the increasingly bonkers season 3.
