Britta Finally Gets A Win
In protest agains the Sadie Hawkins dance, Britta plans a Sophie B. Hawkins dance and promises more than she might be able to deliver. Also, Abed makes a new lady friend... or three.
So, Britta (Gillian Jacobs) definitely pulls a Britta. When she finds out Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) is throwing a Sadie Hawkins dance, she plans a rival dance in protest against the idea that women are only allowed to ask guys to a dance one day a year. In honor of a true women's rights leader, she announcs she will throw a Sophie B. Hawkins dance. Unfortunately, she doesn't realize that Sophie B. Hawkins is a pop singer — she meant to say Susan B. Anthony. (I know, it's a stretch. We'll let it go.)
Instead of just saying she had the information wrong and letting Jeff (Joel McHale) laugh in her face, she commits to throwing the Sophie B. Hawkins dance and even promises the 1990s pop singer will be there to perform. Caught in a tangled web of lies, she confesses to Pierce (Chevy Chase) that she doesn't think she can pull it off. But, what good does it ever do to open up to Pierce?
Meanwhile, Abed (Danny Pudi) considers this the perfect time to pull a sitcom move and bring two different dates to the competing dances. What he doesn't expect, however, is to meet a girl who loves his passion for chaos and laugh tracks just as much as he does! He and his new friend, Rachel, hit it off, and he even pulls a romantic-comedy ending when he publicly declares his "interest" in her (not love — this is Abed after all). The perfectly matched couple even agree to go on a date. Could this finally mean romance for Abed?
Just when Britta thinks she'll have to come clean and tell 20 cheering fans that Sophie will not be attending the dance, the "Damn, I Wish You Were My Lover" singing sensation shows up to save the day! Turns out, Pierce has a good side hidden under all that dim-witted rebellion and called in a favor for his beloved study buddy.
More noticeable than Pierce's good deed is the way Jeff looks at the smiling Britta. Is it possible he's still harboring feelings for his ex-friend-with-benefits? He even gives her a genuine compliment and tells her she truly "Britta'ed this one." So, "Britta'ed" is a good thing these days. Jeff said so.
