"Be nicer to Coach, or he's gonna take off, and live with a bunch of other white people".

Does anybody know who the actress was that played Asian Jess? I missed the credits, don't have the episode recorded. and can't find the answer on IMDB. There's a hot debate at my house as to whether it was Ellen Wong, aka Knives Chau.

Pretty good season finale. I'm definitely going to miss this show until next fall but the image of CeCe straddling a missile will sustain me until then I think

I think they sacrificed laughs for being touching and warm and fuzzy. The average viewer seems to require that sort of show from time to time, and if Jess and Nick hook up in the future we may be up to our armpits in it.

But when they're funny they're really funny.

They needed the douche jar...

Schmidt was being a little douchey there and no jar to contribute to.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Don't you love Schmidt!? I wish i could be that neat and organized (as well as buff) while still being quirky and awesome. Do we really need to wait a whole year?frown.gif

I got a kick over the gang discussing how young Nick's new girlfriend is. They said something along the lines of "She doesn't even know what Netscape is," and "She thinks Ice-T has always mainly been an actor."
That one was spot on, i'm 23 and just getting to the point where people younger than you don't know what you're talking about at certain times. It's a trip when you realize you are starting to get old, i'm reminded of the teens on twitter saying "I didn't know Titanic was real! I thought it was just another movie i hadn't seen" when Titanic 3D came out.

Really good episodes last night. This show has quickly gone from quirky Zoe vehicle to one of tv's best comedy ensembles. Loved Winton's drunk singing, but they need to start working him more into episodes instead of constantly being a tertiary character.

I thought the second was better than the first, but the first episode wasn't bad. The time traveling Nicks was a good bit, and the confrontation in the bathroom was hilarious. I do agree they need to do something more with Winson.

I liked the first episode better. The 2nd one with her having 2 guys knowing her by a different name and then all being in the same place was just to sitcom cliche.

Liked the second ep, the first seemed tiresome. Epsodes with too much quirky Deschanel business are beginning to set my teeth on edge. I know it's her show, but the episodes when the males are really rolling are the funniest, at least to me. If this is a widespread opinion, this might be hard for Zooey and her ego to take.

It seems to be that way. I wish they'd get Winston more involved though. When Schmidt, Nick, and Winston are alone, those are some of the best scenes. Last season when they were teaching Nick how to get rid of a woman he slept with showed such great chemistry. Granted when Zoe showed up in that scene she made it even better. I think the writers get it, thus the episode last season dedicated to Nick's girlfriend berating Zoe for being too quirky.

I read that Olivia Munn will be Nick's new girlfriend. I think she's hot but there's a lot of mixed reviews out there. She won't be on the show for long because she'll be returning for season 2 of Newsroom

If this is true New Girl will be halfway finished with getting NBC's old Perfect Couples cast to appear on the show.

Olivia Munn? Well, I guess most shows have at least one person to stink it up.

Munn was great on Newsroom, so I'll wait to see her performance in this before I judge it.

I thought last night's episode was pretty good. The scene where Nick tries to give Schmidt a Star of David cookie was hilarious. I also liked Jess trying to be a model. It was a scene that would have fit in I Love Lucy.

The Ford ads were a bit much, but still hilarious in the modelling scene.

IDK but I think I love Jess even more.. when she dresses up she's stunning... when she is "normal" she's adorable...

I wonder why she wears glass-less "glasses" anyway... even as a teenager..

Maybe she wants to show her big blues with nothing to obscure them..

Plano lenses for actors/actresses playing characters who wear glasses, even if the performer also needs refractive correction and is wearing contacts behind the spectacles, are quite a common practice.  Otherwise the refraction of the lenses would distort the audience's view of the performer's face.

The only exception comes when the character's poor eyesight is part of the story and viewers are supposed to notice the distortion.

I may be crazy but thought this episode was very funny. Loved the parallel issues that Jess and Nick were having. Especially loved the Nick and Schmidt backstory. He just showed up and never left. I mainly threw things at him.

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

I thought it was a pretty funny episode. Zooey's bits were funny and well done, and the guys were okay.

Watched it tonight off the DVR. Probably my favorite episode of the new season. Ford was a bit much, but I'll excuse that since Zoey was hilarious. I also can't hate an episode that has Nadia in it. Dance cracker bear, dance!
