Never start something you can’t finish. It’s an age-old adage we all learned as children, usually while staring at the pizza-sized cookie we swore we could finish.

The results of Troy’s dalliance with Vice Dean Robert Laybourne (John Goodman) and his Sith-like temptation to join the Dark Side – of skilled labor jobs in the air conditioning repair business – comes to a head when Laybourne returns with body issues and a ponytail braid with only one goal: turning Troy against Abed.
It’s a bit of an issue when the duo sets out to build a pillow fort and the dean conveniently reveals his mission to break the Guinness Record for largest blanket fort. When Troy refuses to back down, the spark from Celebrity Impersonator crisis fallout becomes an absurd, colorful fire. And of course Abed can’t resist saying it himself: “To be continued.”

John Goodman’s 12 year-old girl braid. It was amazing. That is all.
“At this point in time, we’re not able to keep them from having hearts.” Did you catch that? Heartless corporations can’t be represented by truly heartless human representations…yet.
The moment the epic pillow fight starts, note how Jeff, who’s texting yet again, merely steps back disinterestedly as the pillow versus blanket war rages on.
