In a panel with Vulture called “In a Conversation with the Actors of the Community,” Jesse David Fox delivered a key scene from season one episode seven, “About Statistics,” in which Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) expressed her anger at her ex-husband over Jeff’s relationship with a statistics professor. In the episode, Shirley places a faucet through the window to the professor’s office, intending to leave it in a drawer to flood the office.
However, Yvette Nicole Brown revealed that her character is supposed to be something completely different and a little more raw:
“Okay, okay. So I’ve said this before, Dan knows I’ve told this story before. Shirley was supposed to get the *** in the drawer… She must be starting to drop.” pants and said, ‘I’m going to fuck in this drawer'”
Shirley is, to the uninformed, a conservative Christian mother of two who is seen as a loud voice of reason on the show, which is in stark contrast to the rest of the group. more cynical and dull study. Her sense of self-righteousness made the act of getting into a drawer a little out of the ordinary for her. Yvette Nicole Brown thinks anyway, since she doesn’t believe that’s what Shirley would do either:
“I felt, as a decent black woman, no decent black woman would ever do that! And I remember I was so sad, like I was so sad that I had to say it. Talk to your boss and try to explain.”
