Garrett Lambert is a student at Greendale Community College. He is primarily involved in science classes, though he also took an acting course one time. He is a highly excitable young man who is easily flustered and is one of the more colorful students who attend the school. Several rally's have been held by the Greendale students dedicated to Garrett in order to "save" him. His first appearance was in the Season One episode "Social Psychology". He is portrayed by actor/comedian Erik Charles Nielson.
Garrett was a member of Professor Ian Duncan's lab study and took part in observing a group of students who unknowingly where testing the theory of "The Duncan Principle". After 26 hours waiting in vain for Abed to have an emotional breakdown and prove the theory sound, he is forced to leave for other classes he needs to attend and gets insulted by Duncan ("Social Psychology"). He participates in the 2009 Paintball Assassin game but is eliminated early. He manages to talk to Jeff briefly about the competition before being shot again by Leonard ("Modern Warfare"). On the last day of the school year, Jeff makes his way across campus to the library and notices Garrett lying on a bench "chillaxing".
Garrett participates in the "Troy and Abed in the morning" show as the weatherman ("Aerodynamics of Gender"). He also accidentally gets nominated for student president when he tried to get ice cream and stepped into the wrong line ("Intro to Political Science"). He is on the production crew along with Pavel for a documentary Abed is filming involving Pierce bequeathing things to the study group ("Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking") .He takes an acting class taught by Professor Sean Garrity that Troy and Britta also attend ("Competitive Wine Tasting"). He participates in the paintball war between Greendale and the City College Storm Troopers lead by Dean Spreck. He disrespects Annie's idea at a meeting of the student rebel alliance claiming that he won't do what a girl says because they never talk to him. He joins Troy's commando squad and helps set up a trap for the City College Storm Troopers inside the library. Unfortunately, he gets stuck in the air vent of the study room cutting off their escape route. He is later seen celebrating the Greendale's victory over their rival along with other students ("For A Few Paintballs More") .
Garrett acts as moderator for the Model U.N. showdown between Annie Edison's Blue Model U.N. and the Red Model U.N. led by Annie Kim ("Geography of Global Conflict") . Annie and a student named Kim tell Jeff about several "Save Garrett" rally's were held in his honor. He helps Troy build his blanket fort and informs him that they are more than 2000 square feet shy of beating the current Guiness world record holder of the world's largest blanket fort but Abed's pillow fort is in the way. He is later seen in the study room showdown between Troy's blanket fort citizen's and Abed's Pillow fort dwellers ("Digital Exploration of Interior Design"). He later takes part in the final battle between the two forts in the cafeteria ("Pillows and Blankets"). In a flashback by the study group recalls an incident earlier in the year when Ben Chang was trying to see if Garret had precognitive abilities and an imagined flashback saw him as a psychologist observing the study group in an insane asylum ("Curriculum Unavailable").
