Troy stop! Don't become this person again! This isn't the real you, this is the arrogant jock that totally ignored the only people that truly liked him for non-superficial reasons but weren't allowed to say anything because her parents were bigots!

Troy and Annie
Portrayed by
Donald Glover and Alison Brie
In the study group's first year together at school, Annie had a crush on Troy, having been infatuated with him since they both previously attended Riverside High. Annie was one of many admirers of Troy had while he was the school's star quarter-back. Before graduating high school, they both ended up losing out on scholarships due to poor choices they made and forced to attend Greendale Community College. Annie saw this as an opportunity to finally be noticed by Troy and tried several times to reveal her feelings to him but he remained oblivious. Frustrated, she gave up and moved on and while Troy has since became aware of Annie's attractiveness, he has not pursued her romantically and has instead forged a good friendship with her. Troy is portrayed by Donald Glover and Annie is portrayed by Alison Brie.

Pairing historyEdit

Season OneEdit


Hey...Annie...it's me...Troy.


Oh, I don't know where Abed is...I can try calling him if you want?''

–Troy and Annie, "Romantic Expressionism"

During their freshmen year at Greendale, Annie helped Troy in a number of activities in order to get closer to him helping him prepare for a date and studying for astronomy. It's revealed that she lost her scholarship to an ivy league school due to an Adderal induced freak out she had in high school and that Troy lost a chance at a football scholarship when he injured himself trying to perform a keg flip at a party. She attempts to convince him not to play football again and Jeff calls her out over her selfish motivations behind this. Jeff also correctly guessed that she took all his classes and it's implied she only came to Greendale because of Troy. Eventually, Annie gets tired of not being noticed by Troy and moves on, particularly after realizing she could never take the place of Abed in his heart. She starts dating Vaughn Miller which upsets both Jeff and Britta. Jeff makes Troy see how attractive Annie is so he could hit on Annie and break up her and Vaughn. Later, Annie and Shirley team up to get revenge on Señor Chang on behalf of Troy and Pierce who he had humiliated but the plan ends up backfiring on them. Troy receives a pet monkey as a gift from Abed which he ends up calling "Annie's Boobs" over Annie's objections.

Season FiveEdit

DevelopmentEdit

Troy and Annie were meant to be the junior romance on the show contrasting the main one in Jeff and Britta by being more sweet and innocent in comparison. Unlike Jeff, who aggressively pursued Britta, Annie was to secretly pine away for Troy, hoping he would eventually notice her. As the show progressed, however, Troy's relationship with Abed became more central to the development of his character then Annie's one-sided romance with him. On top of that, Annie's character managed to generate compelling UST and a good rapport with Jeff. Both the Jeff/Annie and Troy/Abed combinations quickly superseded the original pairings that were envisioned and Troy and Annie's romantic plot was eventually dropped.
