We're Gonna Finally Be Fine

CD Cover
  ♫We're Gonna Finally Be Fine  

◄  Album : none  -  Performed by: The Study Group, Dean, and Chang  ►
  Composed by: Ludwig Göransson  -  First heard: Biology 101

We're gonna seem like a mainstream dream... ...and be appealing to all mankind!
Dean Pelton and Ben Chang

In the study group's third year at Greendale, Pierce had yet to arrive for the first day of classes. At the end of the last semester ("For A Few Paintballs More"), he quit the study group, feeling unappreciated. Although the rest of the group, particularly Annie, was worried, Jeff was unconcerned. In fact, he daydreams an elaborate fantasy featuring his friends performing the song and dance number "We're Gonna Finally Be Fine". The musical fantasy reflects Jeff's belief that not having Pierce in the group will cause them to have a great year and outlines what Jeff hopes to get out of the upcoming semester. The dream sequence is first seen in the Season Three premiere episode "Biology 101".

We're Gonna Finally Be Fine! - Community (Episode Highlight)


We're gonna fly to school each morning
We're gonna smile the entire time
We're gonna be more happy..
We're gonna finally be fine.

We're gonna get more calm and normal
We're gonna fix our state of mind..
We're gonna be less crazy
We're gonna finally be fine.

We're gonna stand holding hands in a brand new land
Far away from the borderline...
We're gonna seem like a mainstream dream
And be appealing to all mankind.

We're gonna have more fun and be less weird
Than the first two years combined...
And we're gonna live forever
And we're gonna sleep together.

And we're gonna finally be sunny and shinily
We're gonna finally be fine!!!


The song contains various references to criticisms of last year's season as well as allusions to the show's low ratings. Shirley's line about being "far away from the borderline" is probably a reference to how close the show had been to cancellation the last two seasons. The line about "have more fun and be less weird" addresses critics who believed that Season Two had gotten too weird and experimental in comparison to Season One. Ben Chang is dressed in a suit made of dollars, which references actor Ken Jeong's participation over that summer in two of the year's top grossing movies, "The Hangover II" and "Transformers: Dark of the Moon". The line from Chang about being "more appealing to all mankind" reflects criticism mentioned by Dan Harmon in the interviews and in the Community The Complete Second Season DVDs from NBC executives that Community needed to broaden its appeal.
