The central story of the episode — Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is worried that she will never have kids — is kicked off by a casual dinner with Jess’ lesbian gynecologist friend. Because it’s perfectly normal to talk reproductive organs over a meal…
This issue seems to be initially affecting Schmidt (Max Greenfield) more than the girls. Fortunately, Sadie (June Diane Raphael) is there to answer questions. And to inspire many, many donations to the d-bag jar.
“They literally eat your body!” — CeCe (Hannah Simone) on babies. Is she in denial, or is Jess the only one wanting to reproduce? Although you might wonder why Jess is so eager for kids when there are “evil eggs” in there…
Jess maybe doesn’t want the solutions given to her by the roommates. Although Schmidt’s tadpoles are intriguing, and the Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Jess baby would indeed be beautiful.
You remember that zombie-romance novel that Nick (Jake Johnson) talked about last week in the Thanksgiving episode of “New Girl”? Well, it turns out that Nick hasn’t actually written any of it yet. But, considering all of the things Nick believes he has to do in order to become Ernest Hemingway (eat his way out of a sandwich house?), writing may indeed be a difficult job.
The final video shows us that Schmidt may be offering his tadpoles to another — his boss (Carla Gugino). She is less than impressed: “I was bored.”
“New Girl” airs Tuesdays at 9pm on FOX.
