Goofs

In the library scene where Brita meets Subway, he has circled a paragraph from George Orwell's 1984. He then goes on to quote a different passage from 1984, which is clearly meant to be the one he has circled. See more »

Quotes

Abed Nadir: You can't connect the blanket fort to the pillow fort and still call it a pillow fort. Even if you could, I'd rather see my work destroyed than compromise it.
Dean Pelton: Great, Abed will destroy his pillow fort, and Troy will expand his blanket fort into the space. Everyone wins. Except Abed, but you know, not everyone can win.

Blatant corporate shilling for "Big Sandwich" aside...
17 February 2019 | by soundphurySee all my reviews

An episode that rails against the inhumanity of corporations taking over people's lives... while probably making a few bucks in corporate advertising dollars at the same time... how "meta" is that? Very, if "meta" is now a euphemism for "hypocritical".

Shirley/Pierce/Britta/'Subway' storyline: A

Jeff/'Kim' storyline: B-

Abed/Troy 'pillow/blanket-fort' storyline: B

Overall episode grade: 86%
