Pierce and Abed portrayed by Chevy Chase and Danny Pudi.
Pierce and Abed were two study group members who interacted the least. Pierce was confused by Abed's constant pop culture and meta references. Pierce often mocked Abed's eccentricities and would pronounce his name as "Ay-bad". Like the rest of the study group, Abed tolerated Pierce's comments and didn't take them seriously. Abed also understood that a part of Pierce's treatment of him was the fact he was jealous of his friendship with Troy. Pierce and Abed's first appearance together was in the Season One episode "Pilot". Pierce was portrayed by Chevy Chase and Abed is portrayed by Danny Pudi.

Good grief, clear the chickens off the runway. I'll be the bad guy. Yes, Abed. You need to be someone else, someone who eventually gets a girlfriend because I can't think of anything more frightening than a half Polish/ half Arab virgin in his thirties. One way or the other, that story ends with an explosion!Pierce, "Physical Education".

Season FiveEdit

Abed Nadir, did you know that you are insane and nothing that you said ever made any sense to me?Pierce, "Cooperative Polygraphy".
