To me, that's what has made Community a spiritual experience, even a moral one. Every episode attempts to show the way out of a trap: if you forget about being dignified, if you can enter into shared play with someone else, then you don't have to be lonely anymore.
In the first season's Halloween episode, Abed and Troy are hanging out; Abed is in character as Batman, while Troy is doing a voice that sounds somewhere between Batman and Cookie Monster. Then Troy confesses that if he ever woke up transformed into a jelly donut, he'd eat himself.
"Mm, that'd be tasty," Abed-as-Batman agrees.
"It's cool to know I'm not the only one who thinks about this stuff," Troy tells him.
"Yeah," Abed-as-Batman says. "Yeah."
