Jeff Winger: You're really doing this? Look, as someone who faked being a lawyer for seven years, I appreciate your commitment to the bit, but just admit you were wrong.
Britta Perry: So you can say I Britta'd it?
Jeff Winger: Yes, of course. That goes without saying. But come on, it was a small mistake. Call this off before it becomes a full-scale "Brittastrophe." I coined that.

Community Herstory of Dance
4 April 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Finally a good episode of the show for me making it the most enjoyable of the season so far as it say a good use of Britta my favourite character on the show. It was both sweet and funny to see her in defeat but also get what she wanted with the help of Pierce who has been used very well lately. Abed also finding a girl he connects with was a growth for the character and the show that they would make socially awkward Abed appealing to a women. Good one liners throughout with Jeff and Dean also being used for some funny moments while other characters were wasted. Also a nice appearance by Sophie B. Hawkins.

EPISODE GRADE: B (MVP: Gillian Jacobs)
