Last night’s new episode of Community featured drunk dials galore, which threatened to upset the balance between Jeff and Britta. After Jeff calls out Britta for her initial, obnoxious late night message he claims that it had BCI (booty call implications) written all over it. [We may have the hottest new TV acronym since Jersey Shore. ("GTL Baby, GTL") ] Jeff is confused when Britta begins to act strange and embarrassed around him. Ahbed points out that Jeff now has the upperhand in their relationship. They decide that Jeff needs to create an even more embarrassing drunk dial.
Jeff and Ahbed end up getting black-out drunk during a montage scene where we see them drinking far more alcohol than any two people could ever consume and a funny Breakfast Club dance reinactment. When they arrive to their study group session hung-over the next day Jeff finds out he made the drunk dial to Britta, but didn’t remember anything. Everything seemed to be back to normal.
When Jeff arrives to the Valentine’s dance to meet up with his girlfriend Professor Slater, she informs him that he drunk dialed her as well, but hung up when he realized it wasn’t Britta. He’s in the doghouse when Britta shows up dressed to the nines. She claims he asked her to the dance, which turns out to be a joke, but clearly her commitment proves the underlying feelings. She plays a sweet part of the message he left her regarding his feelings for Professor Slater thereby fixing his night.
In the B-plot of the episode, Troy and Pierce send themselves Valentines to make it look like they had girlfriends. When Professor Chang finds out the truth he humiliates the two further setting off a string of events that leads to Pierce and Troy having to wear women’s pant suits to the dance.
This was a very entertaining episode, which as the show has continued to prove uses unconventional ways of keeping the sexual tension alive. We won’t see them back until the week after the Olympics so we’ll have to wait to see what’s next for Greendale’s Evilest Coolest study group.
