Keeping track of every pop culture reference Abed has made on Community can drive a man insane, or at least make him curl up with a bottle of no-no juice. There are references on top of references on top of spoofs on top of meta references; the layers of Star Trek go seven timelines deep. But I did the best I could: consider this your glimpse inside the mind of Abed. I kept track of every pop culture reference Abed has made, with a few guidelines to keep me away from the Greendale Asylum: 1) For the most part, I only included exact references, i.e. Doctor Who isn’t included because it’s not mentioned by name, only in homage with Inspector Spacetime (same with the spaghetti westerns that are lovingly paid tribute to in “A Few Paintballs More” — I broke this rule a few times, though; blame it on Evil Josh); and 2) I didn’t bother with season four. No Dan Harmon, no care.
