Major: Forensics


I'm only here because of a brief addiction to pills that I was told would help me focus, but they actually made me lose my scholarship and virginity.
— Annie Edison, "Social Psychology".

Annie Edison (portrayed by Alison Brie) is a graduate of Greendale Community College. She is the daughter of a Jewish mother and an Episcopalian father. Her parents divorced and she, along with her brother Anthony, were raised by their mother. At a very young age, Annie's mother pushed her hard to succeed academically. In her teens, she attended Riverside High School along with her then crush Troy Barnes. She ended up losing her college scholarship (and her virginity) and dropped out of high school due to an addiction to Adderall. Her drug abuse led to a nervous breakdown that culminated in her jumping through a plate glass window and suffering severe injuries. Her mother wanted to ignore the incident, but Annie chose to confront the addiction and go to rehab. As a result, Annie became estranged from her family and eventually moved out. She began attending Greendale Community College at the age of 18, and it's hinted that one of the main reasons is because Troy was going there. During her time at college she became close friends with him and their Spanish study group. After four years, she graduated and ironically got a job with a pharmaceutical company. She unexpectedly reunited with her study group and decided to re-enroll to pursue a degree in Forensics. Along with her friends, she also joined a group formed to improve campus life called the "Save Greendale Committee". At the end of the 2015 Spring semester she left Greendale to participate in an internship she was offered with the F.B.I. over the summer break.


Mornin' boys. I'm Annie Edison, but people call me Psycho because I had a nervous breakdown in high school.

Annie, "The Science of Illusion".

Although she is young, Annie has overcome a lot of personal hardships including a drug addiction, her subsequent estrangement from her parents, and poor living conditions in a disreputable and dangerous neighborhood. Even with these setbacks, she still maintains a bright and optimistic disposition. She is a typical Type A personality; ambitious, studious and very well-organized. Although Jeff is the de facto leader of the study group, she usually takes charge when it comes to actually running the study sessions. She continued this role after joining the Save Greendale Committee in her fifth year at school. A romantic at heart, she is often drawn to strong alpha-male type personalities. This has been demonstrated by her former schoolgirl crush on Troy when he was a quarterback in high school as well as her ongoing attraction to Jeff. Despite Annie's seemingly innocent demeanor, she has displayed a more manipulative side on occasion. In her freshmen year at school, she would often use her "Disney face" to guilt people and went to the extreme of ratting out Señor Chang's fake credentials as a teacher in order to keep the study group together. She has grown up a lot since then but has had occasional relapses into immaturity. 369832-annie edison2

It's called a stress headache. I got my first one when I was four.

Annie, "Debate 109."

School year synopsis

Annie joined the study group only because she saw that Troy was joining as well. When she and the group discover that Jeff had been lying about his credentials as a tutor, they kick him out.

It is during the debate that romantic sparks first occurred between her and Jeff, creating an underlying tension between them that was hinted at a few times. She was active in school events helping to organize, set up, and promote functions like the Dia De Los Muertes party and the STD Fair. Towards the end of the year, she had given up on her crush on Troy and started dating Vaughn. At the end of the semester, she decides to transfer with him to a prestigious Hacky Sack college. She was supposed to leave with him on the night of the Greendale's Tranny Dance but changes her mind and breaks up with him.

In the the study group

Annie’s role in the original study group was to be in charge of the actual study sessions. Jeff left the more mundane aspects of organizing and running the daily meetings to her as she excelled at planning those activities. She continued doing this when she joined the Save Greendale Committee that was formed. An unintentional oversight by the committee which cost the school a lot of money forced Annie to cede this role to a professional administrator named Frankie Dart. However, this allowed Annie to have more free time which she used to hang out with Abed and study for her new major Forensics.

Troy Barnes (See main article:"Troy and Annie")
Annie was originally obsessed with Troy and did everything she could to try to get him to like her, including helping him plan a date with another girl just so she could be closer to him. Annie gradually starts to lose feelings for him, and by the time Troy realizes that he's attracted to her, it's too late as she's already begun dating Vaughn. Annie and Troy have since become good friends as demonstrated in "Mixology Certification", where he tells her that he thinks she's "cool." Although Troy is now aware of her attractiveness, he seems to not be interested in her romantically and has instead shown a strong affection for Britta, which Annie accepts and even supports, as shown when she tried to get the two together.
Troy and Annie Season One
Notable appearances:
Jeff Winger (See main article:"Jeff and Annie")
Annie was initially suspicious of Jeff when they first met, but eventually was charmed by him along with the rest of the study group. While romantically pursuing other members of the study group they discovered a mutual attraction after they shared an unexpected kiss. This underlying sexual tension between them continued throughout the rest of their time at Greendale. As suggested by Dean Pelton the two shared various misadventures together at school to sublimate their feelings for each other. Jeff maintained his distance from Annie uncomfortable with the age difference. It wasn't until their sixth year together at school that he finally admitted how he felt and the two shared a brief kiss. She assuaged his belief that they might have missed their chance by stating that future was not set.
Notable appearances:
Abed Nadir (See main article:"Annie and Abed")
Abed and Annie share a mostly platonic dynamic and friendship marked by occasional forays into role-playing. Depending on what persona Abed assumes, Annie has shown to be attractive to him. The two share a kiss during the second paintball tournament when Abed role plays as Han Solo and Annie assumes the part of his Princess Leia. For now, the attraction is mostly played up as a running gag, and whether it's indicative of any deeper feelings between them is unclear. Regardless, the two still enjoy a solid friendship and even have a secret handshake which is a work in progress.
SP Annie and Abed
Notable appearances:
Britta Perry (See main article:"Britta and Annie")
Britta and Annie, although friends, are initially not as close to each other as they are with other members of the study group. Most of the time they had an almost sisterly friendship where they support and are protective of each other. On a few occasions feelings of jealousy between the pair arose which have lent a more adversarial nature to their interactions. These conflicts occurred mostly due to their seemingly similar taste in men, particularly Vaughn and Jeff. Recently they have since moved past all these issues and formed a more solid friendship. Annie has even been instrumental in helping Britta in her budding relationship with Troy.
2X7 Annie and Britta
Notable appearances:
Shirley Bennett
Shirley and Annie's relationship changes constantly, as sometimes they act like mother/daughter, sometimes like sisters, and sometimes like friends. As the more compassionate members of the study group, they often take issue with many of the morally ambiguous antics of their friends. Because she is the youngest of the group, Shirley is often overprotective of her which sometimes annoys Annie (along with Shirley's various attempts to convert her to Christianity). In spite of this, they have developed a good friendship and will often find the same things adorable. This leads to them both saying "Aww!" at the same time, which has become a running gag on the show. In season four, their relationship has developed a more hostile and competitive element since Annie discovered that they are both competing for Valedictorian.
1x20 Annie and Shirley
Notable appearances:
Pierce Hawthorne
Annie has a higher tolerance for Pierce's behavior than the rest of the study group. She does her best to look past his flaws to see the good person inside. Pierce appreciates this and has stated several times he considers her his favorite in the study group. He once helped her out financially, although he used the favor to guilt her into expanding a part he had in a play she wrote. She is the only one Pierce gave a legitimate bequeathal to when he faked being on his deathbed. Annie found herself the only one in the group to defend Pierce's increasingly antagonistic behavior in their second year. When a vote was held on Pierce's continued membership in the group, Annie was the lone dissenter to keep him in.
CP212 Pierce actually does something nice for once
Notable appearances:

Other notable relationships

High School Boyfriend
Annie had a boyfriend in high school (whose name was never mentioned) that she lost her virginity to. They had sex on the floor of his walk-in closet to Madonna's Erotica. He cried before, during, and after their intercourse. She later found out he was gay, the status of which was likely solidified by their sex.
Notable appearances:
Vaughn Miller (See main article:"Annie and Vaughn")
Annie getting over Troy, Annie shows an interest in Britta's ex-boyfriend Vaughn and asks her for permission to date him. Although Britta gives her consent, she later teams with Jeff to break them up. When they realize that Annie and Vaughn genuinely likes each other, they and the rest of the study group give their approval of the relationship. At the end of the school year, Vaughn is offered a chance to join a prestigious Hacky Sack university on the east coast. On a whim, Annie decides to transfer with him but changes her mind the night she was to leave. She returns to school and runs into a possible reason for wanting to stay.
PTR Vaughn and Annie say goodbye to the group
Notable appearances:
Rich Stephenson
During Annie's Spring Break at her second year at Greendale, she helped dredge rivers with Rich. When she returned to school asked the study group if he could become a member. Jeff opposed his inclusion motivated by previous dealings with Rich and his dislike of Annie's school girl crush on the doctor. When membership is put to a vote, Jeff convinced the undecided Shirley to use her swing vote for Chang instead. Annie called Jeff out over his actions but he refuses to own up to any feelings of jealousy. Annie eventually asked Rich out, but he declined, claiming that she was too young.
2X12 Annie's new crush is revealed
Notable appearances:
Anthony Edison
Anthony is Annie's brother. He has an awkward personality and non sequitur way of speaking. During Annie's fifth year at Greendale, Anthony stays over at Abed and Annie's apartment. During dinner with Abed and his girlfriend Rachel, Annie mentions that when they were kids, Annie and Anthony used to play "time machine". Annie unsuccessfully tries to convince Abed that Anthony should be their room mate due to his handyman skills and that he has money. After an awkward competition using a 1980's VCR game called "Pile of Bullets", Anthony decides to leave. Annie tells him she always resented him for taking their mother's side when Annie decided to go to rehab. Anthony tells her off, saying that he never took anyone's side and was only 13 when this happened. He then leaves.
