I never expected any show to be able to deliver this many laughs about a missing pen!

Annie's yell/freak out had to be one of the sexiest things ever!

A monkey that maintains a Troy/Abed shrine in the vents - cute.

Abed charting the women's menstrual cycles

Great episode all-around!

Very cool episode. I was expecting the Dean or Chang to have it, even though Chang was MIA.

Shirley possibly pregnant with Chang's baby? I like how they use continuity, both with the possible pregnant and Pierce's legs.

Hot damn if that episode didn't back up my claim that this is the best comedy on TV now.

And the fact that Abed is tracking the women's cycles. It was one of the readouts in his Robocop vision last episode.

Yep, I was surprised to see Annie's Boobs pop out there at the end.

I hope they run with the idea of a Shirley/Chang lovechild. A pregnant Shirley with no memory of hooking up with the father will be either comedy gold or another tedious religious allegory. Either way, I'm there. Go "Shang!" Or possibly "Chirley."

I am pretty sure that she knows who the father would be, she just doesn't want to admit it to anyone. Troy is the only one outside of Shirley and Chang that know they hooked up, since Chang left him a voice mail telling him.

The men in black wiped everyones memory, so even Shirley and Chang don't know.

There were so many great moments in this episode, I'm not even going to begin to list my favourites. Probably the best of the season.

I forgot about that part. It'll be interesting to see if that is the way they decide to play it.

I loved this episode. I'll have to watch it again this weekend, but it was easily one of the 2 or 3 best this season.

I was dying when Jeff started explaining why it had to be ghosts who took the pen.

I also thought Troy was on fire. So many great lines. I loved when he asked if anyone had ever shown up to a puppy parade half way through and his original notion that a ghost had stolen the pen. And speaking of Troy, I like the idea that he is the only one who knows what happened between Shirley and Chang. I imagine that's going to be paid off big time down the road.
