Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi and Jim Rash on @atmidnightcc
TWoP: Speaking of Girls, were you excited to watch Donald’s guest spot?
Gillian: Definitely! I couldn’t watch that sex scene though.
Alison: Oh my God! I feel like I knew it was going to happen and was still so shocked!
Gillian: Yeah, it was like “There he is! Oh my! They’re naked and they’re doing it. Okay!” I closed my eyes.
Alison: I didn’t. I rewound it and watched it like, three times. [Laughs]
The Musical Numbers
From the big song-and-dance number that opened Season 3 (featuring such meta-lyrics as “We’re going to have more fun and be less weird/Than the first two years combined”), to the glee club-bashing Christmas episode (with Annie’s Betty Boop routine and Britta belting “Me so Christmas, me so merry!” serving as the highlights) to Jeff and Dean Pelton belting out a killer karaoke performance of Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose,” Community had more consistently entertaining musical numbers this year than Glee or Smash. Hey, if Broadway doesn’t work out, Anjelica Huston could sell the Bombshell rights to Greendale. Shirley would kill it as Marilyn.

Their Friendliest (and Funniest) Exchange
Britta: “Why is there a banana in your DVD cabinet?”
Annie: “Read the banana, Britta.”
Britta: [Reading] “You are a lying junkie.”
Annie: “I’m sure those words hurt. But you wouldn’t be reading them if they weren’t true.”

Yesterday I found an old document from when I was designing the characters and I completely just ripped off Gilligan’s Island, and split up the Howells and made Ginger a Radiohead fan.
- Dan Harmon, blowing our minds.
I also love that, at Troy and Abed’s “fancy” adult party, there was a bowl of olives in the bathroom. I like to think that in one of the timelines, stoned Britta ate them.

"People often ask me about what constitutes a nerd friendly show — like, does it have to have sci-fi elements? But I think it’s just a show that satisfies the secret craving we all have to be obsessed with something and not feel at all stupid about it. Most sci-fi shows give that to people because they’re typically written by people who have the same sort of compulsion for detail and surrendering to a narrative. I’m every bit the nerd that anyone who wrote on Star Trek was and I apply that value for detail to Community. And when we go to a convention like Comic-Con, you just hear a different sound coming out of the collective mouth, because there are people in that audience that love the show like you’d love a girlfriend if we were able to have any. They love it the way you love a partner you actually feel secure with — you can actually say ‘I love you’ without being rejected.”
