New Girl 2×08: Parent trap (the single daughter version)

New Girl 2×08: Parents

Turkey day on New Girl!

1. What just happened?!
It’s Thanksgiving and Jess is trying to set up her divorced parents, like she does every year. This time Cece and Nick help her out (and Nick even falls for her mom). Schmidt cousin is also visiting and also goes by the name Schmidt. A big problem for the vain Schmidts. So the completely bored Winston decides that the guys have to battle for the nickname.

2. What was the most memorable quote or dialog this episode?
Jess: “You grieved so publicly on Instagram… all those pictures of sad trees and, and your lunches.” Because that’s how we grieve these days. Plus the “I’ll do it all day, Winston” by the Schmidts was funny too.

3. Cuteness vs. Useless
+ Jamie Lee Curtis is such a likeable actress. I think she is the perfect mom for Jessica Day. Nice casting!
+ The Schmidts being very Schmidty.
+ The family fight at the table was funny. Parents can hold everything over your head even when it happened years ago.
– Nick if you like Jess’s mom, maybe you just have to admit that you like Jess. Please move on to that obvious storyline already.

4. Rate it! (on a scale from 0 to 10)
This week was another 6,5 for me. Is New Girl losing it’s magic?! I haven’t been blown away by it in weeks…

What are your thoughts on this week episode?
