The episode begins in a perfectly normal fashion, with Winston (Lamorne Morris) trying to find a phone charger.
Naturally, this brings up issues of attraction and dating for Jess and Nick.
Does going on a date with Jess require a hat fitting? That may indeed be the case when Schmidt (Max Greenfield) is involved.
Nick cleans up nice…
You know who doesn’t clean up so nicely? That would be Outside Dave (guest star Steve Agee), who is strangely inside.
Is it really necessary for Jess and Nick to take notes during their date?
Even if the date was going well (notes or no notes), there is a bit of a wrinkle when Jess’ ex Russell (Dermot Mulroney) appears.
Russell seems to have a date as well — Brandy (Chelsey Crisp).
They can’t even split up in the parking lot? This cannot have gone well.
However the “First Date” turns out, we will get to see it on a special night — Thursday, April 4 at 9pm.
