Community Quotes That Every Fan Should Know

Wednesday, November 2 by Samantha Assad

"Community" quotes are funny, a little messed up and great conversation starters, especially if the other person doesn't watch the show. "Community" is centered around Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), a lawyer with a "better than real" bachelor's degree from the country of Colombia who is forced to go to a community college to get a real degree or be disbarred. As he pursues a female student, Britta Perry (Gillian Jacobs), Jeff accidentally forms a study group with an unlikely set of students.

"I don't step up to being leader, Troy. I reluctantly accept it when it's thrust upon me."

Jeff explaining his stance on leading the group in paintball to Troy Barnes (Donald Glover), a fellow student and former football star. Jeff basks in the attention he receives from the other study group members—he's the "go-to" guy for problems—but in reality, he's a typical sleazy lawyer who can't solve his own issues.

"Documentaries are like real movies, but with ugly people."

Student Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi), aspiring director and walking pop culture encyclopedia. Abed uses pop references to occasionall break the fourth wall on "Community." Nadir was supposed to take over his father's falafel restaurant, but feels emotionally attached to TV because he was raised in front of one.

"So I did what any man would do. I faked my way into a job teaching Spanish at a community college using phrases from Sesame Street."

Benjamin Chang (Ken Jeong), the school's Asian Spanish teacher, explaining that he, like Jeff, has no real credentials.

"Mornin' boys. I'm Annie Edison, but people call me Psycho because I had a nervous breakdown in high school. My partner's a Christian housewife."

Annie Edison (Alison Brie) is one of the younger students in the study group. She did have a nervous breakdown in high school because of a Adderall addiction, which she sought help for after throwing herself out of a window while screaming, "Everyone is a robot!"

"Knock, Knock. Who's there? Cancer. Oh good, come in. I thought it was Britta."

Britta referring to her current level of popularity among the others in the group, now a sort of "Community" of its own. Britta actually dropped out of high school to impress Radiohead and was kicked out of an anarchist group for not being "anarchist" enough.
