    Abed: By the power vested in me, I now pronounce you canceled.
    Jeff: Oh, good. Yeah, Abed, cancel us. Why don't you take your cutesy "I can't tell life from TV" gimmick with you? You know, it's very "season one."
    Abed: *I can tell life from TV, Jeff. TV makes sense, it has structure, logic, rules, and likable leading men. In life, we have this.
    We have you.*
    Other random guy: Ahem. I'm on the clock for another hour if you want me to do some Batman lines.

    Damn when Abed basically tells Jeff you are what's wrong with real life and you are a reason why I don't like it

    Abed's my favorite character. If he did this to me though I'd probably smile and wanna hug him.

    This is one of the greatest scenes, and it was referenced in today's instant classic – "Basic RV Repair and Palmistry."  Jeff told Abed that he had established he was aware that this wasn't a show in…
    Abed: Season 2?  Ahh.  I dunno.  I can change my mind.

    I love it when Abed tells Jeff off.  He seems to be the only one that can leave Jeff speechless.  Abed doesn't try to win the argument by insulting him, he just speaks honestly and sums up the situation, telling Jeff where he went wrong.

    They are really unfair to jeff. Everyone else is just as selfish as him but his character (besides pierce's) is the only one that grows throughout the show.

    That scene is really great. Abed is often the one who makes more sense and says the true things.
