Character history[edit | edit source]
|In the study group's third year at Greendale, a Subway sandwich shop opens in the cafeteria taking the place of the old coffee shop. A problem occurs when the "Corpohummanoid" sent to represent the company gets involved in a scandal. The Subway rep is sent to then sent to the school to deal with the problem . In Dean Pelton's office, he listens to a secret recording provided by Pierce Hawthorne and Shirley Bennett. It details an illicit liaison between "Subway" and Britta Perry. At first the Subway rep has no problem with what happened even encouraging his employee to follow his heart. His opinion changes though when he hears an indecent sex act being performed. The rep is offended by it and states such an act is unacceptable for a Subway employee.
|He chastises "Subway" for his actions saying he should know better and calls him by his real name Rick. On a hidden mic the Subway rep says the code phrase saying "The bread is stale". Two men in black burst into the room and immediately take "Rick" away. However, the Subway rep finds himself in an embarrassing predicament. He had an involuntary priapic response to the recording he just listened to. Unable to stand without giving this away, he asked for someone to hand him his jacket so he could leave. Pelton and the rest were confused by his behavior and didn't comply, unaware he needed the jacket to cover up his unintended reaction. The Subway rep then decided to pretend like he was still upset and remained seated ("Digital Exploration of Interior Design").
|In the first year of the Save Greendale Committee, the committee has done such a good job at improving Greendale that when the school is appraised by Ronald Mohammad, he declares that the property has value. As a result, School Board members Richie and Carl sell the school to Subway restaurants. "Subway rep" makes a re-appearance at Greendale to handle the sale and become Dean of the Subway University that will replace Greendale. After being shown his office (in which Dean Pelton is seen crying), Subway rep runs into Jeff in the cafeteria and offers him a job teaching "Sandwich Law" and gives him a Subway black card which Jeff can use to obtain "five dollar footlong" sandwiches for life ("Basic Story").
|The committee springs into action to find a way to stop the sale of Greendale to Subway. Shirley, Hickey and Duncan delay Richie, Carl and Chang from tracking down the rest of the committee who have discovered the school's founder Russell Borchert hidden in an underground lair. Borchert has millions of dollars (which Carl takes) but more importantly, a contract with the City of Greendale that entitles him to consultation on any future scholastic endeavors on campus. Later, Subway rep is at a video conference ceremony with Richie and Carl to officially sign the sale papers. The committee interrupts the ceremony, presents Subway rep with the contract and presents the dishevelled and eccentric Vice Dean, Borchert. Borchert announces he will be partners with Subway at which the Subway rep recoils in disgust. The sale doesn't go through and Subway rep rallies the Subway employees with a cry of "Subway, Ho!" and leaves. Greendale has been saved ("Basic Sandwich").
