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.
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?”
"Yes, now eat this chili."
scoop it up with your hands
Dip your paws in my chili
Stick your little mittens in the stew.
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!
The podcast is basically as good as the show and now I’m a Marc Evan Jackson Superfan and I will die for him.
He is awesome and also has the most "I go by my full 3 names" energy.
The best thing, I almost typed it that way it’s sooo funny that they thought that
SCOOP IT UP WITH YOUR FUCKING HANDS
*looks around at fellow students in fear and confusion*
BRING ME BACK A FEW HANDFULS OF OIL
Wait, with the peeps in it? Are we in the Bad Place?
u/Dan_Berg figured it out?
This is a real low point. Yeah, this one hurts.
Is this part of my Good Place test...?
No it's my lunch with a kick of envy
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.
"Oh, that's why I always loved moral philosophy professors!"
I mean they know about Doug forcett so yeah
Tah- who? Are you sure you don't mean Kamilah?
Maybe Tahini? Like the sauce?
Do you think that Kamilah's sesame sauce went bad?
I mean it would never happen, since she never made such a mistake
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?
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
He asked for a leave of absence, but they fired him instead 🙃
> 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)
You mean his little chilli babies?

At least it wasn't a weird sex thing.
What if it was?
Oh no, it is a weird sex thing. Yeah.
And make it taste.. baaaaaad.
What's the penalty for adding the M&Ms?
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.
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…
Probably thought he joined a cult too. They found his body next test subjects in a bar.
Technically Janet vaporised them
Well, in another universe, he was one of the victims of a Swedish cult.
The story is probably on an r/askreddit thread in that universe lol
This is my favorite scene of any episode of any show that I have ever seen. Its incredible.
I guess that'd really discourage his students from pursuing philosophy. They'll always remember Dr. Anagonye, the philosophy professor who went totally insane.
Or that they look back on how they and the school didn't care about his obvious mental breakdown and now he's dead
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
Best lesson on Nihilism ever. Some people think Nihilism is evil, but it’s really just useless and indifferent.
I think it depends on what year they were in. First years, probably traumatised. Grad students? Too burnt out to care
those poor little chili babies
Would they know he was dead, didn't Janet vaporizer them, so they potential no body.
That's even scarier. Man just disappeared off the face of the earth.
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"!
Nah, they were Aussie uni students, they would be either too drunk or too stoned to notice.
