At the women's studies class, Abed arrives before the ladies and secures them seats in the back of the class. They make up an excuse and go to the front of the class to sit away from him. Soon after settling in, three young female students confront them. The new arrivals insist that they give up their seats. Although they refuse at first, the girls become more hostile and insult them. Shirley suggests to Annie and Britta that they take the high road, and they end up in the back row with Abed. Abed asks why they are back, and Shirley explains they were chased off by Meghan and her cronies. When Abed inadvertently shames the three mean girls with insults he impresses Annie, Britta, and Shirley, who invite him to lunch.
Elsewhere, Jeff looks for Troy, and finds him in a secret garden bouncing away on a trampoline. A Greendale groundskeeper shows up and introduces himself as Joshua. He informs them that this is a place of peace and the trampoline is a tool to reach a state of bliss. They can use it but must follow two rules: the garden must remain a secret and no double bouncing. Jeff tries the trampoline out and experiences the peaceful sensation that bouncing brings. In the student lounge, the study group ladies enjoy Abed's knack for pointing out the imperfections of other students. He leaves to get soda but ends up confronting Meghan at her table in the cafeteria. He uses his newfound smack-talking skills to insult Meghan and her friends, chasing them away. Britta, Annie and Shirley lead the rest of the students in celebrating the fall of the campus mean girls.
Time flies by in the secret garden where Troy and Jeff are still bouncing away on the trampoline without a care in the world. Back at school, the study group ladies find another victim for Abed to insult. He is reluctant at first but the ladies reassure him that being bad to bad people is okay. In the study room, Pierce is suited up for a game of basketball and challenges Troy and Jeff when they arrive. They decline, still feeling blissed out from all their bouncing. The study group ladies then walk in with Abed in tow. Jeff congenially objects to Britta's new aggressive attitude so she sics Abed on him. He is unfazed by Abed's insults causing Pierce to angrily demand to know how they achieved such a laid-back state. The girls and Abed leave, as does Pierce, who tells Troy and Jeff he will be watching them closely. Troy and Jeff head out for another trampoline session after making sure Pierce isn't around to follow them. But they don't notice that Pierce has used his Draganflyer to see where they went.
The ladies find a trio of coeds sitting in their usual sofa in the commons area so Britta insults them until they leave. Abed doesn't understand why Britta acted mean to someone who did nothing wrong. Annie tries to explain that they were just joking so if that makes them bitches, then all girls are bitches. Abed processes this new data and concludes that this must mean everyone is indeed a bitch and immediately begins verbally attacking everyone he sees. Elsewhere, Jeff and Troy could not be more relaxed as they rest on the trampoline but the mood is shattered when Pierce bursts through the bushes. He climbs on the trampoline and, not satisfied with bouncing on his own, demands to be double bounced. Troy and Jeff refuse until Pierce threatens to tell everyone about their secret retreat. Reluctantly, Troy climbs onto the trampoline and bounces Pierce so high that he flies over the hedge into a dumpster. Numerous students who witnessed the accident gather as Pierce screams in pain and shouts about the hidden illegal trampoline.
Walking through the cafeteria, Abed casually throws out insults at everyone he passes on the way to his seat. He looks up to notice the whole room is staring at him and nobody has taken a seat at any of the adjacent tables. This state of alienation causes him to seek the assistance of Meghan, who he finds in the library. She is suspicious at first but Abed tells her he wants things to go back to normal and hands her index cards containing what he calls “destruct codes.” Outside, construction workers destroy the trampoline and Jeff and Troy see Joshua walking by. He tells them that the trampoline cost him his job but he blames himself for trusting a black guy. He saunters away, leaving a stunned Jeff and Troy, who begin to recall several ambiguous incidents that hinted at Joshua's racism. Jeff wonders if their trampoline hideout was always too good to be true. Pierce rolls up in a wheelchair and suggests that paradise exists “right here” as he holds his hand over his chest. Jeff and Troy smile and leave to get ice cream and don't see Pierce pull out the bottle of medication from where his hand was resting.
Meghan and her friends stride into the cafeteria and begin to verbally assault Abed, who is sitting alone. As Meghan's insults continue, others in the cafeteria begins to voice their approval. She finishes by admitting that she acts mean sometimes to boost her own self-esteem but Abed did it to fit in. She walks away to cheers but Shirley, Annie, and Britta witnessed the scene and move to comfort Abed. They apologize for turning into the kind of women they hate and for turning Abed into someone everybody hated. He admits that he got carried away and they all agree to be more forgiving in the future. Jeff and Troy arrive with Pierce who is flying his Draganflyer. Pierce claims that there is a little man controlling the R/C helicopter. The rest of the group witness Pierce talking to the imaginary figure who Pierce hallucinates is telling him to take more pills.
