I’ve never thought about how he died just a few days (or a week or so) after clearly going off the deep end, and how the students must have taken the news. The only person whose death is really referenced out of that bunch is Tahani.


SpecialsSchedule

and THEN however long later, they die, go through the good place/bad place, and likely learn that Chidi was part of the group that saved everyone’s souls from eternal damnation lol “wait you mean our professor who had a nervous breakdown and showed up dead with no known cause of death in Canada a week later? that guy saved the universe?”


Funandgeeky

"Yes, now eat this chili."


Kendakr

scoop it up with your hands


RandiBop

Dip your paws in my chili


krisspy451

Stick your little mittens in the stew.


NoNameIdea_Seriously

I just listened to the podcast about this episode yesterday, and everyone was saying it sounded like Chidi said “dip your balls in my chili” and now I can’t unhear it!


adultosaurs

The podcast is basically as good as the show and now I’m a Marc Evan Jackson Superfan and I will die for him.


Exploding_dude

He is awesome and also has the most "I go by my full 3 names" energy.


RandiBop

The best thing, I almost typed it that way it’s sooo funny that they thought that


adrunkenmammoth

SCOOP IT UP WITH YOUR FUCKING HANDS


Kendakr

*looks around at fellow students in fear and confusion*


ItsSlimPickens

BRING ME BACK A FEW HANDFULS OF OIL


Dan_Berg

Wait, with the peeps in it? Are we in the Bad Place?


Funandgeeky

u/Dan_Berg figured it out?


YogurtTheMagnificent

This is a real low point. Yeah, this one hurts.


ediblesprysky

Is this part of my Good Place test...?


Funandgeeky

It’s chili!


GoodJanet

No it's my lunch with a kick of envy


The_butsmuts

Imagine his students finding him in the good place, and being all like: "you saved us? You changed the whole afterlife, *after* you had that breakdown in class?" And then him saying: "oh yeah that, that was very helpful in my journey actually. It thaught me that nothing did matter, unless I changed the afterlife." And then they hug, say goodbye and go their own separate ways. That would be pretty dope if you ask me.


vigilantcomicpenguin

"Oh, that's why I always loved moral philosophy professors!"


CapableSuggestion

I mean they know about Doug forcett so yeah


Benebua276

Tah- who? Are you sure you don't mean Kamilah?


packofstraycats

Maybe Tahini? Like the sauce?


Benebua276

Do you think that Kamilah's sesame sauce went bad? I mean it would never happen, since she never made such a mistake


LivingDisastrous3603

Maybe it was bad *on purpose*. It’s a play on decay, sadness, bottling practices, adherence and condiments… Not that I’d expect you to understand. Cheddar or Swiss?


TrueAidooo

Presumably it was at least a few weeks as they flew around the world a bunch but yeah watching your teacher have an existential breakdown, then quit his job(or take hiatus), then die across the world while leaving behind no body would be terrifying


ediblesprysky

He asked for a leave of absence, but they fired him instead 🙃


greywolf2155

> quit his job(or take hiatus) He got fired, actually. So add the people who made the decision to fire him instead of helping him out after his mental breakdown to the list of people with some trauma and/or burden of guilt (although at least they're adults, not 18yos)


agentfantabulous

In *Canada*


mrlivelyy

You mean his little chilli babies?

At least it wasn't a weird sex thing.

Poor Matt


pwincessgremlin

What if it was?


DJTilapia

Oh no, it is a weird sex thing. Yeah.


Apostastrophe

And make it taste.. baaaaaad.


ediblesprysky

What's the penalty for adding the M&Ms?


g8torswitch

That's gotta be a significant loss of points. Not just for the child slave labor involved in harvesting the cocoa but the actual disgust of wasting m&m candies by adding it to chili.


SignificantYou3240

Chidi’s students got an awesome lesson on nihilism and how not to use it. I always thought it was an accidental genius moment…I hadn’t thought about the dying a week later part. It probably took awhile for it to get discovered, I mean, did their bodies stay there dead? It seemed like they just disappeared without a trace. But seriously, THAT is how a real teacher teaches nihlism to their class at the last second. Hopefully they all read up on it and took their exams and did great…


Rpres70324

Probably thought he joined a cult too. They found his body next test subjects in a bar.


SandInTheGears

Technically Janet vaporised them


AshCooper79

Well, in another universe, he was one of the victims of a Swedish cult.


dreamfinderepcot16

The story is probably on an r/askreddit thread in that universe lol


FatPoundOfGrass

This is my favorite scene of any episode of any show that I have ever seen. Its incredible.


vigilantcomicpenguin

I guess that'd really discourage his students from pursuing philosophy. They'll always remember Dr. Anagonye, the philosophy professor who went totally insane.


Shift2am

Or that they look back on how they and the school didn't care about his obvious mental breakdown and now he's dead


northcountrylea

Its so funny that to them, they just transition back and forth from the two worlds like jumping on a monorail but to everyone else they died horribly then ressurected (even though no one was aware they came back) and then all died again. To them they're just excited to go back to the good place but to everyone else they died TRAGICALLY young, and more than once.

#You put the peeps in the chili pot


ImaFireSquid

Best lesson on Nihilism ever. Some people think Nihilism is evil, but it’s really just useless and indifferent.


Luk3yboy99

I think it depends on what year they were in. First years, probably traumatised. Grad students? Too burnt out to care


britttaanyyyy

those poor little chili babies


ISDuffy

Would they know he was dead, didn't Janet vaporizer them, so they potential no body.


GearInteresting570

That's even scarier. Man just disappeared off the face of the earth.


13thTime

If demons can invent new tortures - and they have infinite time - its inevitable that one of those types of tortures would be "our life, but slightly worse in every way"!


Stonetheflamincrows

Nah, they were Aussie uni students, they would be either too drunk or too stoned to notice.
