It's been several long years since Community went off the air, and I still miss it every day. 

Mostly because I constantly think about just how freaking smart that show was. There were so many Easter eggs throughout the series that our minds were blown on the regular.

1. If anyone was surprised to learn that Abed had experience delivering a baby, then they clearly weren't paying attention to the background in the episode where he literally delivers a baby.

Abed said he wanted to lay low in that ep, and technically, he did. 

2. That same couple can be spotted 10 months earlier, in Season 1, when Abed alerts the students in the school to avoid the faulty condoms that were handed out.

So this is basically all Abed's fault.

3. In the episode "Pillows and Blankets," Jeff is sitting on Dean Pelton's couch without cushions because they were used by Abed for his pillow fort.

This war reached all corners of the school, and no pillow was left unused. 

4. Abed tells Jeff a story about how he was an extra in Cougar Town, and Danny Pudi can actually be seen in the background of a Cougar Town episode.

Abed confesses that he accidentally pooped his pants while on camera, and during the scene in Cougar Town, he suddenly runs off.

5. When Jeff finds out that Pierce named him as his emergency contact, he gets Britta's name added, as well. Later in the season, when Pierce is in the hospital, Jeff and Britta arrive first.

They would have been contacted before the rest of the study group about Pierce's situation. 

6. In "A Fistful of Paintballs," Troy is dressed like Sheriff Bart from Blazing Saddles.

I've definitely seen this episode more times than I can count, and I can't believe I never caught this.

7. In "Aerodynamics of Gender" when Abed goes full RoboCop, the text on the side of his screen hints at the story line of the Christmas episode as well as the blanket fort episode.

There's also a full synopsis of the current episode. Honestly, this show thinks of everything. 

8. A flashback in Season 2 shows Shirley teaching Annie, Abed, and Britta how to sell Lady Miss Lady cosmetics kits. The hitchhiker that Britta picks up in Season 3 appears to have a kit of his own.

Either he got duped into buying one like the rest of them or he stole it. I'm going to say he stole it.

9. At the end of "The Art of Discourse," Britta's caption reads that she will be the proud owner of a used iPod in 2014. In 2014, Britta receives Pierce's old iPod as per his will.

Just a reminder that this joke started in Season 1 and was brought back in Season 5. 

Let that sink in. 

10. Another long-running joke is when the name "Beetlejuice" is dropped three times throughout the first three seasons, and on the third time, he makes an appearance in the background.

And that, my friends, is what we call genius.

11. In the claymation episode, Abed mistakes Chang for a snowman. Later, he can be seen in the background, which indicates Chang spying on the study group from outside.

That's not creepy. Not one bit. 

12. I guess the study group started noticing Chang creeping around the study room because they actually included a tiny Chang watching from the window in their diorama.

I never paid attention to the diorama, and now I regret it.

13. If we had all looked closely, we wouldn't have needed that bottle episode because you can clearly see Troy's monkey, Annie's Boobs, stealing the pen from the table. 

We should have known who took the pen, but we were all distracted by the puppy. 

14. If you blinked during Season 2's Valentine's Day episode, then you might have missed how Starburns had shaved hearts into his sideburns for the special occasion.

I absolutely missed the very small Amy Poehler cameo, and for that, I am sorry. 

16. In an episode after Troy sets sail with his new bestie, Levar Burton, a news ticker reads, "Levar Burton and non-celebrity companion captured by pirates in the Gulf of Mexico."
