Tonight on New Girl: Birthdays and Bust-Ups

New Girl regularly focuses on friendships and what these relationships mean, particularly the ones between men and women. Tonight will take a different approach as the guys question what defines male friendships and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Cece (Hannah Simone) fall out at Cece’s birthday party. Spoilers ahead.

What does it mean when one man buys another man a cookie because he was thinking about him? When Schmidt (Max Greenfield) does this for Nick (Jake Johnson) it leads to an argument as Schmidt thinks it is perfectly acceptable and Nick thinks the opposite. Winston (Lamorne Morris) as always is stuck in the middle between these two. As you can see in the sneak peeks below there is tension between Nick and Schmidt already, as Schmidt is upset that Nick doesn’t appreciate all that Schmidt does for him.

This season has already featured a discussion regarding the rules of what a male friend can do for a female friend — “don’t build that dresser” — but Nick refused to stick to the so-called rules and went ahead and built that dresser anyway. Is Schmidt doing the same in doing all these nice things for Nick and should Nick just shut up and let him get on with it? The beauty of the Schmidt/Nick relationship is just how different they are and so that should provide a hilarious outcome. I do hope that Winston gets to participate in these shenanigans more than just playing referee.

Jess and Cece argued several times last year and had their biggest falling out in the episode “Secrets.” Like Schmidt and Nick they are very different personalities and this is often the source of the conflict. It’s Cece’s birthday and Cece wants Jess to come to a party with her, one that happens to be with all of Cece’s model friends (including Nadia!). This isn’t really Jess’ kind of thing and Jess is very clear about how she feels, sadly with Cece in earshot. Can Jess make it up to Cece by filling in for her in a model show?

We know that Jess is hot, even if Nick has referred to her as the “loft troll” and someone who is not the right kind of hot to be a shot girl; is this modelling assignment going to be a disaster? The promo photos above would suggest that all will not go well, though hopefully it will go beyond Jess being clumsy. Can we add this as another job to Jess’ growing list?

Good news New Girl fans as Fox announced yesterday that they are upping the season 2 episode order from 22 to 24!
