It’s the end of the semester, and the study group decides to attend the transfer dance after being informed that Britta was nominated for transfer queen. At the dance tensions begin to rise. Annie tells the study-group that she has decided to follow her boyfriend, Vaughn, to the East Coast for the summer, but privately confides in Jeff she doesn’t plan on returning to Greendale. Troy is being kicked out of his house and in increasingly unsubtle fashion hints he wants to be Abed’s roommate, a situation Abed appears uninterested in. Chang and Duncan's continued grudge explodes into a full Ballroom Blitz. Jeff’s two love interests Britta and Slater compete over his affection and both publicly confess their love for him. The episode ends in a Big Damn Kiss that has been building for most of the season.


The Community episode "Pascal's Triangle Revisited" provides examples of:

 Slater: Britta! You look great! Such a stunning improvement.

Britta: Wow, you look gorgeous. It must've taken all day.

 Duncan: You might want to go easy on the punch; I put in a little hot person. Hot people.

 Jeff: What’s wrong with you?

Troy: I’m sick. I don’t know why. [takes another bite of cookie]

Jeff: Have you considered the sixty-inch-diameter cookie you’re eating?

Troy: How can something that’s delicious make me sick?

  • Harsher in Hindsight: Shirley's first keg stand, once we learn she developed a drinking problem after her divorce.
  • Ironic Echo: Señor Chang, who is now a student, asks Duncan if he can get help to cheat his way through school, mirroring Jeff's actions in the first episode. Naturally, he is rebuffed.
    • What Could Have Been: In the commentary, it's mentioned that they considered having a runner where Chang experienced Jeff's entire character arc from the season in miniature within that episode.
  • Jumped the Shark: Discussed.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Britta takes therapy with Professor Duncan. She automatically lies down on the couch for the session, which Duncan notes is how one would act "in a Woody Allen movie" and is unnecessary.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Annie is willing to transfer to another school to be with her boyfriend Vaughn, who used to go out with Britta. Jeff is stuck with choosing between Britta and Slater after both publicly profess their love for him. In the end, Jeff and Annie kiss.
  • May-December Romance: Jeff and Annie.
  • Running Gag: The Dean's dalmatian-furry fetish is followed from its very beginning ("I hope this doesn't awaken something in me"), to its escalation (dalmatian mugs, posters, and rugs), to its inevitable conclusion in "Pascal's Triangle Revisited".
  • Season Finale: the first of hopefully many more to come.
  • Serious Business: Vaughn just got a spot on the number one community college hacky sack team.
  • Ship-to-Ship Combat: In universe example between Team Britta and Team Slater. And Team Bring Conan Back.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Speak of the Devil: Saying "Nothing could ruin this." summons the Dean.

 Jeff: He's like an evil genie!

 Dean: Please don't be mad. I didn't think more than one person would answer the ad.

Drags the first Dalmatian toward the second

Dean: Yes! Dream coming true!

    • Jeff wishes he could be two people so one could be with Britta and the other with Slater, then they could get together for some weird foursome.
  • Unfortunate Name: The Tranny Dance (that is, Transfer Dance), where they crown the Tranny Queen.
  • What Could Have Been: It's mentioned a few times in the commentary tracks throughout the season that they wanted to get Bruce Hornsby in as a cameo and have him attack Pierce for ripping him off with the school song. They even mention a potential Pre-Ass-Kicking One-Liner: "I'm Bruce Hornsby, and this [raises fist] is the Range."
  • What Now? Ending: No Mortal danger Cliff Hanger here, but the question of how the study group can possibly stay together after Jeff runs away from Britta's confession and kisses Annie minutes later.
