Laws of Robotics & Party Rights - S6-E5

Question: Something I don't get... If Willy the prisoner is not really a killer, as revealed in the climax, then why did he try to literally kill Jeff earlier? It goes against the whole joke of the episode - that Willy is actually a fairly harmless fraud who never actually killed anyone despite his claims. He was just sort-of a loser who built a mystique around the fact he was (wrongfully) convicted of murder. The fact that he did try to kill Jeff therefore just doesn't quite add up in my head.

Answer: His attempt to "kill" Jeff was to roll at him as an iPad on a stick. He knew it wouldn't work, but it played to the story that he was a killer as he knew Jeff would tell people about it, or attempt to retaliate for it.

Mistakes

During the scenes in the pool area and the locker room, posters can be seen in the background with the Greendale Human Being on them. However, the Human Being mascot isn't invented until the next episode.

Trivia

This episode features a pay-off for a joke that was established in the first two seasons. In season one, the character Professor Slater mentions the name "Beetlejuice" while trying to recall Britta's name. In season two, Britta refers to Jeff's underwear as "stripey Beetlejuice numbers" during a conversation. And in this episode, Annie says that Britta has the "Beetlejuice" soundtrack on her computer. As Annie says the name, the character Beetlejuice is visible briefly walking by a window in the background, his name having been said three times. (In the film "Beetlejuice", he is summoned once his name is spoken three times).
