Character history[]

In the study group's third year at Greendale, they were involved in instigating a riot in the school's cafeteria. After "Dean Pelton" put the entire blame for the incident on the study group the school board had them all expelled. Abed guessed that Ben Chang was behind their expulsion and had replaced Pelton with a look-a-like. He began investigating on campus role playing as The Inspector but was arrested by Officer Cackowski for trespassing on school grounds. In order to avoid "Pelton" pressing charges, Abed was asked to attend a therapy session with a Dr. Heidi in order put to rest his conspiracy theories. The group decided to accompany Abed for moral support. As the session went on, Dr Heidi eventually tried to convince the group that their time in Greendale was an illusion and that they were actually asylum inmates. He succeeded in convincing them, until they realized how inplausable it is that would be the case and confronted him, with him revealing that he was a fake psychiatrist who was hired by Chang to throw them off the scent.


  • According to the Season 3 DVD commentaries, the role of Dr. Heidi was originally written for Nathan Fillion, who had to bow out from the role due to scheduling conflicts. Fillion later appeared on the show as Bob Waite.
