Come on Annie, I don't want to beat you. You're my favorite!

Of all the study group members, Annie is the most tolerant and patient when it comes to Pierce. Pierce is often nicer to Annie than he is to anyone else in the group, he appreciates her kindness and tries to reciprocate it. However, he still manages to unintentionally offend her at times with his racist viewpoints and churlish behavior. Despite this, Annie will most often come to Pierce's defense whenever he offends the group. It's because she is unwilling to break up the close circle of friends they have which she considers her family. A few times, she had to side with the group when he went too far. A falling out towards the end of their sophomore year together at Greendale resulted in Pierce leaving the study group. However, Annie is genuinely pleased when Pierce decides to return to the group in the following semester. Pierce is portrayed by Chevy Chase and Annie is portrayed Alison Brie. Their first appearance was in the Season One episode Pilot.

Pairing historyEdit

Season OneEdit

You listen up, Pierce! I'm gonna tell you what my mother told me when I wanted to quit cheerleading. 'You're not very pretty, you have no boobs, and you can't do a basket toss to save your life.' But you made a commitment. So pick up your pompoms, Pierce, stuff your bra, and get ready for the team bus to forget you at a Taco Bell, because life is tough. But we soldier on, and that's just the way it goes.
