J: You know what makes humans different to other animals?
T: Feet.
P: No, come on, bears have feet

J: We are the only species on Earth that observe “Shark Week”. Sharks don’t even observe “Shark Week” but we do. For the same reason I can pick this pencil, tell you its name is Steve and go like this (breaks pencil) and part of you dies just a little bit on the inside because people can connect with anything. We can sympathize with a pencil, we can forgive a shark, and we can give Ben Affleck an academy award for screen writing. People can find the good in just about anything but themselves. Look at me, it’s clear to all of you that I am awesome but I could never admit that because that would make me an ass. But what I can do is see what makes Annie awesome. She’s driven. We need driven people or the lights go out and the ice cream melts. And Pierce, we need guys like Pierce, this guy has wisdom to offer… We should listen to him sometime, we wouldn’t regret it. And Shirley, Shirley has earned our respect, not as a wife, not as a mother, but as a woman. And don’t test her on that because that thing about the jukebox was way too specific to be improvised. And Troy, who cares if Troy thinks he’s all that. Maybe he is. Do you think astronauts go to the moon because they hate oxygen? No. They’re trying to impress their high schools prom king. And Abed, Abed’s a shaman. You ask him to pass the salt and he gives you a bowl of soup, because you know what? Soup is better. Abed is better. You are all better than you think you are, you are just designed not to believe it when you hear it from yourself. I want you to look at the person to your left… Sorry look at the person sitting next to you. I want you to extend to that person the same compassion that you extend for sharks, pencils, and Ben Affleck. I want you to say to that person I forgive you.

Everyone but Pierce: I forgive you.
P: Little twerp…
J: Pierce I’d like you to say “I forgive you”
P: [Mumbling] I forgive you.
J: You’ve just stopped being a study group. You’ve now become something unstoppable. I hereby pronounce you a COMMUNITY.

DAY SIX: Favorite speech/quote given to or by one of the study group members

“I have no closing arguments because I’m throwing the case. No, no, it’s okay. It’s fine, don’t worry. My client, Shirley Bennett - my friend of three years - she told me it was okay. She said what I want is more important. She’s right… Right? I mean, guys like me will tell you that there’s no right or wrong, there’s no real truths… And as long as we all believe that, guys like me can never lose. Because the truth is, I’m lying when I say there is no truth. The truth is - the pathetically, stupidly, inconveniently obvious truth is - helping only ourselves is bad and helping each other is good. Now, I just wanted to get out of here, pass Biology and be a lawyer again instead of helping Shirley - that was bad. And my former colleague wanted so badly to keep his rich client happy that he just asked me to roll over in exchange for my old job. So, I guess we all walked in here pretty bad. But now Shirley’s gone good. Shirley’s helping me. It’s that easy: you just stop thinking about what’s good for you and start thinking about what’s good for someone else… and you can change the whole game in one move. Now, if you like this idea, you can make it true by doing something good for everyone here: throw this case out of court. It’s dumb. That is all.”

DAY TWO: otp- jeff x annie

He loves Annie. […] No, it is not just because he looked at everybody. I think you know it’s Annie. I’ll be direct about that. He looked at her, and his heart opened the door. What a comedy.”- dan harmon

❝ Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial. What’s more, there’s an interestingly sexist assumption that often gets made about female fashion — namely, that it’s primarily intended to get male attention and male approval. ❞
