    "Did you know that sugar is like baby meth? That's what my homeopath said."

    "Well maybe your gay friend should mind his own business."

    "You know what Annie? Pew, pew pew pew! No wait. Pew, pew pew pew, oh wait..."

    "You too Brute?"

    "If loving worms is stupid, I don't want to be smart."

    Loved Todd's final speech to the group.

    I haven't really liked how they've been using Chang since he stopped teaching Spanish. I always thought it would be better if they just had him teach other classes. I am starting to like the security guard role though. It was cool to see an episode where he had more airtime, but they should limit those to a few per season. He reminded me of a dumber version of Ace Ventura, if that's possible.

    And Magnitude is growing on me. :)

    I have loved Magnitude from the start and he makes me burst out loud laughing every time he says "Pop pop!"

    I wasn't crazy about this episode. Nor last week's.

    I laughed quite a bit, although it was pretty dark (which I've heard the show is going to be for awhile).

    Does Ken Jeong have video of the Community creative team doing nasty things with donkeys? The Chang character blows now that he isn't the Spanish teacher but they keep forcing his subplots into these episodes.

    I really didn't like this episode. At least in the Model UN Ep, which was weak but watchable, the group was their usual somewhat whiny, but ultimately lovable selves. In this one they were just jerks.

    The Chang scenes were unbearable. I love Community, and won't FF thru it, but this was as close as I've ever come. Just. Not. Funny.

    The rest of the episode was good. The way they all play & riff off each makes this one of the best sitcoms on TV (IMHO).

    Really, I would have said the Chang parts were the best part of the episode. Some of his voice overs were hilarious and it was a great parody of the old style detective films.

    Put me in the Chang Haters group. In small doses, in the proper role, he's fine but too much Chang really hurts the show.

    Another "Meh" episode.

    Chang has become a useless character that needs to be dropped.

    I lost interest in this ep pretty early on.

    Hoping next ep is a lot better.
