"Contemporary American Poultry" was written by Emily Cutler & Karey Dornetto. It was directed by Tristram Shapeero, and aired on April 22nd, 2010.


Jeff devises a system to get the gang access to the amazing chicken fingers served in the cafeteria by getting Abed hired as a fry cook.

Soon the power goes to Abed’s head, and he and the gang become like a mafia fueled by chicken fingers. Jeff, who was originally the brains of the operation, is pushed to the side.

When Abed cuts them off for abusing their position, the gang comes back to Jeff to get him to take Abed down. Everything goes back to normal, but Jeff and Abed have a new understanding of each other.
