Don't you forget about me, I'll be alone, dancing you know it baby
— The 88
In his first year at Greendale, Jeff posed as a "board certified Spanish tutor" creating a fake Spanish study group to impress his classmate Britta. He and was surprised when Britta invited Abed to the study session who in turn invited Annie, Shirley, Pierce and Troy. When the group began to argue amongst themselves, Britta tricked Jeff into calming things down by agreeing to have dinner with him afterwards. After resolving the conflict with a Winger speech, Britta recanted on her promise and revealed to the group his fake credentials. They kicked him out and tried to resume studying but found it wasn't as fun without Jeff and the session quickly ended. The group reconnected with Jeff who was outside the library and took pity on him. They decided to forgive him and invited him to return to the study group. As they re-entered the building the song "Don't You (Forget About Me)" played in the background ("Pilot"). The song was again heard in the Season Four episode "Heroic Origins".
