Betty White Rocks the Community Set

In the second-season premiere of Community, the nicely ripped Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) receives a righteous beat-down from Betty White, America's favorite octogenarian, who plays a deeply eccentric anthropology professor named Jane Bauer.

As the scene was rehearsed July 29 in L.A., on a set where Senor Chang's Spanish class once stood, White's character employs a primitive weapon - part crossbow, part noose, all lethal - to put shame to Jeff's theory that "respect" is the tool that will preserve mankind. When she has Jeff on the ground, his throat in a sling, he gasps, "I respect you."

"That's why you failed," White replies, her trademark sweetness tinged with archly comic sadism.

White plays Bauer (Jack's grandmother?) in Community's second-season premiere, airing Sept. 23 on NBC.
