This wasn't a typical dream episode though. A typical sitcom dream has characters who are fully 'Into it' and have no idea it's a dream until they're about to wake up.

It was also ABOUT something. Most sitcom dream episodes are just about putting the characters in weird situations or settings. This episode had a very strong theme that developed Jeff's character while still remaining consistent with what we already knew.

Good episode.

Did anyone else get the impression at the end that Annie really didn't have any idea how old Jeff was and was a little uncomfortable with the revelation?

She's just lost track.

The next shock to her system was when she remembered how old she was herself.

She's just about lost all her best years at Greendale.

Her loss is our gain.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Early 20's are your best years?

Maybe if you're a fashion model. Or a prostitute. If you're career minded late 20's through 30's are way better.

@G-man

If Annie didn't know how old Jeff was it's a continuity error. Jeff announced what his age was at the time he made the Real World audition tape, and Annie would have known what year it was recorded in, and her brain would have immediately done the math.

I think she knew in general he was high 30s but didn't think of him as somebody who was near 40, so it was a combination of slight surprise and trying to pretend she was more surprised.

You touch upon an interesting theory/point: she knew how old he was already but it didn't sink in just how much older until she heard him actually referred to as "forty." Someone in his 30s "seems" to be ten years or less older to someone in their 20s but 40 seems like someone actually closer to 20 years older/their parents' age.

The episode where Annie and Jeff ran for class president and Annie destroyed Jeff's campaign by showing his Real World audition tape from when he was a teenager, I think it was in season 2.

Season (series?) finale tonight. I hope they renew it. I really hope they don't do something stupid and end it on a cliffhanger (ala Twin Peaks or ALF) in case it isn't.

Have they ever ended the season on a cliffhanger?

The first season kinda ended on the cliffhanger of Jeff kissing Annie.

Unless you kill all the characters there will always be cliffhangers.

And the second season ended with Pierce "leaving" the study group. Although that was very quickly remedied in Season 3....
