The Dean of Greendale (Jim Rash), who has a seemingly endless supply of costumes, cuts a dashing figure as an old-time pilot. Why, exactly, is unclear.
Jeff and Shirley Do Some Studying
The season begins with Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) just a few credits away from graduating.
Chang and Shirley
One-time lovers, Shirley and incessant nuisance (and former powerful school security guard) Chang (Ken Jeong) discuss something that, in all likelihood, has nothing to do with rekindling their flame.
Shirley, Sandwich Shop Owner
At the end of season three, Shirley and Pierce (Chevy Chase) were the proud (and unlikely) co-owners of a sandwich shop.
Annie and Annie's Boobs
Much to her consternation, Annie Edison (Alison Brie), the nice and conscientious member of the study group, has a small monkey named after her breasts. Here, she seems to have made some peace with it.
Jeff Winger Shows Off the Guns
In a scene that is sure to make Dean Pelton melt, Jeff displays his carefully (and obsessively) sculpted physique.
Dean Pelton and His Men
It's not uncommon to see Pelton in a dress, or surrounded by shirtless men. Some things never change.
Dean and Jeff Embrace
The Dean has long harbored a crush on Winger, so presumably, this is a dream come true. The episode features a physical competition, explaining the shirtless men.
Abed Attempts Mission Impossible
Whether this is actually happening or just in his imagination, Abed (Danny Pudi) faces some difficult, laser-based obstacles.
Jeff Dips the Dean
Roughed up from the physical tournament, with a spot in history class on the line, Winger looks quite tough. The Dean swoons.
The Hunger Games?
In the latest of its themed episodes, the first edition of the fourth season plays on The Hunger Games.
Zoe Saldana transforms into Ellen Ripley from "Aliens" while Nathan Fillion taps into his inner Captain Kirk and Chris Hardwick goes "Back to the Future" as Marty McFly in THR's tribute to graphic novels, with the help of illustrator and artist Reid Kikuo Johnson. View gallery
