Pierce
Annie is in political science class listening to a lecture by the teacher Professor Cligoris. He poses a question that Annie responds to, mistakenly believing that he had called on her. However, it turns out he was actually referring to another student named Annie Kim. When Kim provides the right answer and receives praise from Cligoris, Annie finds herself somewhat unnerved. In the hallways, Britta is walking with Shirley to the study room when she finds out a friend of hers from her political activist days has just been arrested. Elsewhere, Chang is looking forward to his new job as security guard but is disheartened when he quickly discovers that he has very little actual authority. Meanwhile, Annie brings Annie Kim to the study room and introduces her to the rest of the study group.



GOGC Frenemies
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
After Kim leaves, the group points out the obvious animosity between them and Shirley warns Annie not to let a rivalry get the best of her. Jeff leaps to her defense reassuring Annie that she is superior to Kim. Britta then interjects with a non-sequitur activist tirade. Shirley explains to the group Britta is bothered that an old friend is still protesting injustice in the world while she has decided to start a new life in academia. An upset Britta leaves and runs into Chang outside the library. After warning her not to bump into the trashcans, she decides to kick one. He issues her a written warning which she eats in front of him. After warning her again, she walks away defiantly. Both are shown to be happy about the adversarial relationship they just created. Annie notices an announcement on a bulletin board of the formation of a Model UN at Greendale, started by Annie Kim.

The ultimate act of defiance
She shows the flyer to the study group, upset that Kim has stolen an idea she had earlier. Jeff and Annie decide to confront Kim together and head over to the political science class. When they see her, Annie Kim doesn't deny their accusations but argues she should still receive the credit since she made the U.N. a reality. Just as things get heated between Kim and Annie, Professor Cligoris steps in and offers a solution. He will conduct a Model UN showdown with two teams lead by Kim and Edison battling it out for the right to represent the school to which they both agree. The next day at the Model UN competition, Annie goes over instructions with her Model UN team comprised of the study group sans Britta.



GOGC Cligoris the peacemaker
Professor Cligoris makes a suggestion.
She had been outside protesting and was taken into custody by Chang. He brought before Sgt. Nunez where he forced her to admit she's not going to commit any actual crime. At the UN competition, Garrett reads off various crisis alerts that both teams have to resolve. Edison's team gets the lead, but the team loses focus when they are distracted by someone's flatulence. Annie turns to Jeff to get them back on track, but instead he makes a joke. After they all start laughing, Annie throws a childish tantrum. Jeff chastises her, and she runs off stage humiliated. Jeff finds Annie hiding in the library. Ashamed by her actions, she berates herself for acting like a child. Jeff takes the blame saying that it was him treating her like a kid in the first place that lead to this.



GOGC The UN Showdown begins
The Model UN showdown begins...
He admits it's a crutch he uses to avoid his feelings for her. While it lets her know how important she is to him, it's also stopping her from growing. Although they've become comfortable in these roles, it's creepy considering the feelings they have for one another. Elsewhere, Chang receives a message from Britta that she is going to disrupt the Model UN competition. Sgt. Nunez hands Chang a taser and dispatches him to deal with it. Back at the UN competition, Annie Kim's Red Model UN team has taken the lead. Jeff and Annie return as she makes her apologies to the group for her behavior. Abed then reveals an unorthodox plan to win the competition. The Blue Model UN interrupts the Red team's deliberations and makes them an offer.



GOGC We can't keep doing this
We can't keep doing this.
Professor Cligoris overrules Kim's objections to the disruption, allowing Edison's last ditch effort. Their ultimatum is that both UN teams concede the match and form a union, a "united United Nations". Kim rejects the offer, preferring the real victory over an idea. Cligoris explains that's what the UN is at its heart, rhetoric and ideas, and that Edison's Blue UN has perfectly simulated it by their actions. After he awards the contest to Edison, Britta makes a sudden appearance wearing a ridiculous outfit and making a big spectacle of herself. Chang shows up and tazes her, happy to finally be able to exert his authority. Britta is happy as well since she was able to relive her old activist days. Despite the pain, she manages to spit in Chang's face as he carries her away.

QuotesEdit

Maybe I don't want a new path or any path. Maybe my path is a warpath that leads to the Terror Dome, N-words...okay, maybe I went too far. Maybe I don't want to offend my African American friends, but the larger point is maybe I'm not done RAGING AGAINST THE MACHINE!Britta
