In their first year at Greendale, the study group took Spanish 101 and the students were paired off to do a special presentation to the class. Jeff tried to get paired off with Britta, but ended up with Pierce. Instead of practicing six simple phrases in Spanish for the project, they end up spending all night working on Pierce's elaborate ideas for the presentation. Jeff reaches his breaking point and angrily quits and goes to attend a protest Britta was taking part in. A drunk Pierce shows up berating Jeff but quickly leaves after accidentally setting himself on fire. The next day in Spanish class, Britta tells Jeff that Pierce just wanted to be his friend, convincing him to change his mind about the project. As Pierce and Jeff perform their presentation, the song "Wise Up" by Aimee Mann plays in the background.
