we're me and Hannah are doing this podcast right now,
and you know, we just do this New Girl recap
and and we have we start the podcast off with,

(01:56):
you know, something that's kind of clouding our day or
whatever's been going on. And the thing that we're curious
about is how do you do it? Man? Are you
walking around here with a solid ten? Huh? Are you
walking around here with a soft eight that moves up
to a strapping Well, what's going on? Man? You know,

(02:17):
and we want to hear We want to hear more
from you. Look at look at the look on his face.
This is how many times have you left a message
like this for a friend? A lot of need to know.
I gotta listen. I gotta know only because you know,

(02:40):
she's someone who I've been after for a while. She
doesn't respond to any of mine showing up at her
house unannounced. She didn't. She did a movie with Jake Johnson. Yeah,
I know she she was a new Girl. You know,
we have a new Girl. She was a new girl.
Fun fact she was in an episode of New Girl.
Was Eric? Was Eric? Everyone new girl? Eric was never

(03:01):
a new Girl. I don't think I did a movie
with Eric called Flock of Dudes. He's not fast. Um.
But anyway, the randomness of today, talking about friends and
talking about love, talking about sex, that's all in this

(03:21):
episode two oh three of Fluffer. Give us the red
kapla Moore and let's go fluffer. Yes, okay, so here's
the deal. Jess needs to be mentally stimulated before she
can get physical. Now, if you guys don't know what
a fluffer is, google it. Just don't google fluffer with
x x X afterwards. That's strange. It's gonna go to
Google images. Just google and do the words, the words

(03:44):
the Wikipedia pigs for fluffer. Now you enter the new
bestie Nick right, he makes her laugh. He makes her,
He makes her dinner, he makes her laugh at dinner sometimes,
you know, he takes trips to the second closet ikea,
you know what I mean. And then he even builds
her dressers. That's his thing. He does all that type

(04:04):
of stuff with Jess before she goes off and bones Sam.
That's strange. Now Winston feels like Jess has taken advantage
of Nick by having him fluff her for Sam, and
encourages Nick to set healthier boundaries with Jess. We've all
been there now. Meanwhile, Schmidt is still spiraling from his

(04:25):
breakup with Cec. Okay. He pretends to go to a
club and he wants to run into Kanye, but he's
really lightly stalking his ex. We've all been I've never
done that. I'm not gonna I've never done that. I've
I've felt urged to do something like that. Never done it, Okay.
I don't go to the coffee shop on Ventura that
she sometimes goes to. I've never done that. Okay. Now,

(04:49):
Winston's tag Romney maneuver gets them past the club security.
Schmidt becomes Romney baked for some sorority girls. Now he
dubs himself Tug tug Romney and he goes on the day,
which is a very strange. Unfortunately, these Romney super fans,
they sniff out Schmidt's lies quickly and luckily Cecy comes
over and helps soothe him. Say her memories, her memories,

(05:20):
her food, satchels for babies. Okay, Now, Winston and Shelby,
they're struggling like they always are. The dry spell. You know,
they're going through a bit of a dry spell, and
it causes Winston to cheat on Shelby, but in his mind,
which is something I think most people do. Now, when
he reveals his infidelity to Shelby, she tells him that,

(05:42):
you know, he could think about whatever he wants and
declares their fight over. Winston doesn't think the fight is
over because he doesn't think it ever started. He's frustrated
by this. Okay, they have no action going on. There's
nothing going on between these two, and Jest decides to
open up a dialogue with Sam. However, things become awkward
when he tells the only reason he would build furniture
for a woman as if they weren't married. Jess rethinks

(06:05):
the way she's been treating Nick together, they said healthy
boundaries and settle on being friends who are sometimes attracted
to each other. And that's what happens. Two or three
Fluff Friend directed by Fred Goss, written by J. J. Philbin. Oh,
there's so much to dive into on this episode. Let's
before we dive in. I got a response from Eric.

(06:26):
Before we dive in, I gotta response from Eric. He says,
I never kiss until Happy Black his three months. Oh man,
he won't tell us, but it's Black History Month, so
I know he you know, you got that third good?
Marshall going on, Okay, he got that? Okay, all right,

(06:47):
Oh my gosh, got that third good? All right, keep going.
I also feel like we're probably the one million text
voicemail that Eric has gotten today. I think that yeah,
that's that was a copy and paste. Oh yeah, absolutely,
but yeah, yeah, that's yeah. He said that to a
lot of people. Um, all right, let's dive in. I mean,

(07:10):
this is what this whole episode's about, relationships, boundaries, What
makes a relationship a relationship? Exactly exactly. Um, I personally,
I haven't gone through anything well, I mean it's it's
I've never been called out for going going through something
like this, but I do have friends that you know,

(07:32):
you do everything with. You know, you you go shopping
with them, You're there. You're the shoulder for them to
lean on, to cry on, you give them dating advice.
But I don't look at them that way. I don't
look at them the way they look at you that way.
They don't because I I shit with the door open.
Sometimes it's disgusting. Well, that's like true intimacy. Actually, Doney

(07:56):
wants that for me. I mean to be honest with you.
I don't want to jump to the end, but I
do feel like the way this episode ends where Nick
basically says, look exactly what you just said. We're friends,
and yeah, sometimes I build your dresser and sometimes you know,
I'll make you a cup of tea and bring it

(08:17):
to you. And our friendship doesn't look like most male
female friendships. But we just have to accept that we
are friends that are sometimes attracted to each other. Yeah,
have you ever been anything like that? You know? I
know right now you probably can't talk about it because no,
you know what's interesting. It made me think. What made

(08:39):
me think of is that? And it was about a
piece of my Keia furniture. And I had a very
one of my best friends was a guy friend and
he was so sweet and so lovely and my week
like our families knew each other, and it was so
it was just he was my best friend and I
knew like girls he had crushes on, and I would
try to be like a wing woman. But yeah, we

(09:04):
were like in our sweatpants, watching you know, like a
movie three times a week and hanging out and getting food.
And to me, my brother wasn't living here at the time,
and so I was like, he's like my brother, This
is awesome like to have. I just know that companionship
my whole life of having a brother, and I love it.
But I remember we went to Ikia to get something

(09:24):
and there was this really it was like the higher
end Ikea, this kind of like cubby kind of thing
you put by the front door, and it was really
expensive and I couldn't afford to buy it, but I
was like, man, it's so great. And then he bought
it for me and then like built it and it
was in my house and then I was like, oh,

(09:47):
I think my best friend really really like like likes me.
And I had to do a friendship breakup because I
loved him so much. As my friend, and I realized
as long as we were d making it, and he
was such a catch and such a wonderful person, he
was actually like, never gonna put himself out there because
he'd much rather hang out with me. And I think
his feelings were deeper to break. He wasn't going to

(10:08):
put himself out good. He wasn't going to put himself
out there. You weren't going to put out that was
I didn't have the feelings. I'm the jests. I was like,
I just I don't have the feelings. I don't feel
that way about Joy. See, he was my brother, which
is probably the worst thing that any man could ever hear. Okay,
we're driving back into the episode. Let's go Wow, can
I just ask where where is he now? If you

(10:29):
know we had a friendship breakup, that he could go
find someone else, and that man was none other than
Eric Contract Sorry, oh circle was up. Eric. So let's
so let's dive back into the beginning of this episode. Um,
you know, strange thing happened in the beginning. Well, she

(10:51):
leaves him in her room crayons. You know, he can't
have casual sex. She realized it's not working for her. Anymore.
It's she thought she could and she can't just go
from you walking down the street to like jump in
someone's bones. It just doesn't bite to her. She can't

(11:11):
do it. Yeah, So the but in that moment there,
it was a little back and forth between her and
and and Nick, which I thought was funny. She says,
what did she say, my shorty on the side? Why
can't I have a shorty on the side? Is that
what she said? Yeah? Uh she did. Nick said. Nick said,

(11:31):
you know, you didn't use that term correctly. I think
she did. I think she didn't lose it correctly too.
I just think that tells more about Nick than it
does her. Yeah, I was confused. He's like, now, you
can't say it that way. It's like, actually, funny enough,
she got it. She got it right. A lot of
I can't a lot of shorties, you know what I'm so,
I get it. Also, something I thought that was very

(11:52):
interesting about Um and kind of timely UM was you
know during this time. I mean, obviously Kanye has been
a huge figure I think for a very very long
time now, But this obsession that this Jewish man as
with Kanye West, I thought it was very that was
very very funny. What do you oh, they could see

(12:15):
into the future. Oh my gosh. One other thing I
love in this episode because there's so many really teeny
tiny nods to like series what happens during the series,
and they just give us like little tastes, is that
they inadvertently put Nick and Jess on their first like
romantic date together, and as an audience you get to

(12:36):
see what a perfect match they are, that he can
be like a bit of like an oddball, goofy, silly
weirdo with her and she can do something like smuggle
booze into the fancy restaurant, which you would think is
such like a Nick character trait, Like it's it makes

(12:56):
you as an audience root for them, and so early
on because they don't get together to wait later. But
it was such like a nice little like gift that
Liz kind of gave us of seeing them be romantic
and then seeing like the heartbreak of the whole thing,
where it's him loving her so much as a friend

(13:19):
to do that for her so she could be with
someone else. And I like it because it was even
set up that everything surrounding it was set up as
a date. I mean they lived together. However they arrived
they arrived separately. Yeah, I know. And then when I
found to be also interesting when and also telling a

(13:39):
bit foreshadowing, is when she gets that message from Sam
to leave. You could tell right away. Nick is like, internally,
you know, he's jealous. Yeah, he's jealous. Yeah, it's sweet.
It's like those old kind of rom com moments. It
felt this was another one of those episodes that kind
of just felt like a bit like a movie because

(14:01):
it had those kind of those these moments that feel
bigger than usually just like than a twenty two minute
episode of TV. It's hard for me to think of
it as a sweet moment. It's beautiful, for sure, and
I get it, you know. However, it's hard for me
to be like, oh man, that's such a sweet moment
because we see how they do it. We see how
Sam and Jess do it. It's aggressive. Just imagine being

(14:24):
Nick on that date knowing like, oh man, I just
paid for half a soup and I shared this love
and laugh at her. Now she's about to just get
tossed the route up room. Yeah, I know, I hate
that for him, and I do. I hate that for
him too, But that's those moments where you kind of
really like root for them together because Nick kind of
comes off often as a bit uh, I don't know,

(14:48):
on the with some weird life things that he likes
to do that you don't automatically think that Jess would
be a really good pairing for him. But then you
see how far he's willing to go to like support her,
and then you all of a sudden go like, no, no, no,
They've got the things that matter, they got that foundation. Yeah,
I want them to be together. I think because we

(15:08):
know it works out. That's why I think it's sweet.
I guess. Oh yeah, especially when you go back and
rewatch it in the moment when you're watching it, as
in twenty twelve or whenever this episode came out, you know,
when you're watching it in the moment, it is a
bit gut gut wrenching for you because you're like, as
an audience member, you're like, man, this is better payoff.
It's better payoff. It's also one of those moments like

(15:31):
this episode where Winston like tells like this gives some
really good advice. He gives some really good advice, and
like it's really good for just to be called out.
It's like that moment with my friend who built the
Ikea furniture, Yeah, where I had to be like, h yeah,
this person is trying to play a long game and

(15:52):
it's not going to happen, and so I have to
like let him go because it's he's not going to
change where what he wants and I'm not going to
change what I want. And if I really care about
you as a friend, I gotta let you go. And
it's hard, it's hard to be grown up in the moment,
and it's interesting to watch Nick and Jess kind of
navigate that. But that's all Winston calling it out and

(16:12):
naming it. Oh yeah, absolutely my question for you. Yeah. Um.
Moving moving on to the Schmidt storyline. Obviously, he goes
on a date with one of these super fans, the
Romney super fans, you know in those in that in
that moment, you know what is what is going on
inside a CC's skull, you know when she obviously she's

(16:35):
him at the club. Here's the thing that's so funny
when she sees him at the club. The thing it
made me think of instantly, and I'm sure you didn't
notice this, but it reminded me of it because it
was a big chat on set. Is that Um Nicky
I'll carey Nicky Chestnut now married Um who did my
hair for many, many, many many years on New Girl.

(16:57):
She still cuts my bangs to this day. She's the Baum.
But we decided she's like, oh Ceci's out of the
club and she's a model. You know, she likes to
kind of play with her look, and we pulled my
bangs back. Okay, I was wearing a red leather dress
and we pulled my bangs back and there was an

(17:18):
uproar on set I walked onto set. It's because it's
not like our looks got preapproved what we did with
hair and makeup, because there's it's a network sitcom, so
there's you know, you really only can kind of move
on the scale between like a four and a six.
You kind of always have to look the same for
a decade. And that's my scale right there, between a

(17:39):
four and a six. That's that's my playing area right there.
That's right. You can't just show up and be like
I have a huge beard and massive hair now and
just make it work with a character. Network sitcoms don't
work like that. It's a very odd thing, especially when
you do it for a decade to be like, oh,
sale bangs in long hair, gotta got it, which I
find some comfort and it was great. But we just

(17:59):
decided like, oh, let's pull the bangs back and I
show up on set to shoot this scene and it
was just an and it's not so easy because we
had to really they're short, my bank, so we had
to really hairspram shellac them back. Was it like you
could just drop them down and don't they would look
the same? I need banks? Yes, where dressing me out good?

(18:21):
So I just remember it was like this huge uproar
and Nikki got pulled aside and she got spoken to
and it was and I was like, no, no, no,
this is me. I I wanted to do this and
I love this look and it's me. And they were like, okay, fine,
well this one time because there was nothing they could
do to fix it and the scene was about to shoot,

(18:42):
um and they were like, but never again. And it
was so I still don't fully understand it to this day.
I don't know they thought I'd be so unrecognizable that
people wouldn't know it's not Cci or something. I don't know.
Um yeah, I guess I just remember i'd forgotten all
about it, and then I watched me walk up in
the scene that I just remember them having to like

(19:03):
delay camera for ten minutes so there could be this
big conversation about my bangs sticking up versus sticking. But well,
I tell you this, I got face bangs right now,
I got mouth bangs. I got this, uh, this handlebar
mustache situation going on. And when I walk down the street,
this is not a this is not an exaggeration. People

(19:25):
will see me, people who I know, and ask me
if I'm okay because I just like to take walks.
They'll go, you good, bro, like everything everything, okay, what
are you talking about? And they'll just the way they
the way they describe my look is that of a
person who's destituting down on his luck. And I'm like,
my gosh, that's what the mustache does to your whole vibe.

(19:48):
I guess, so you look like, you know, under a bridge,
you know, And you know me personally, I'm a beard guy.
I like my beard. I like my one thank you,
But this mustache, you know, it's it's been really unsettling.
So I maybe I see what the network was trying
to do. They were like, we don't know, we don't know. Well,

(20:09):
they make that joke during this episode about like the loft,
she looks like a loft troll usually, and maybe that's
what it was. They were like, usually you look like
a model on the show, but you look like a
troll with those bangspen back. Don't do it. Don't show
your forehead, it spins you around. Nobody wants to look
at you. Is that the same club that you guys
shot the Models episode in? No, this was some weird

(20:32):
little spot that they did it in and was being
doubled for something else at the time. I feel like
and I was like, how am they gonna make this work?
And they're like, we're just shooting in this one tiny
corner to sell it. So No, it wasn't. That downtown
club is like day own town, and I think they
only ever booked it if you're going to be there
like for like a whole day. Well. I got a
funny story about that particular scene, us being outside and

(20:56):
Winston having to cheat in his mind the weird stare.
We personally will not cheating my mind. I don't do
weird stairs you know what I'm saying. I like kind
of I'll put shades on to I like to put
a nice pair of shades on. I don't like to
walk down the street. I'd like to check out what's
happening on each side of the boulevard, you know, And

(21:17):
they don't. And they don't know. I'm creepy. They can't tell,
you know what I'm saying. Here's the thing. Is that true?
Do you think there's truth in it that everybody thinks
things about other people that they wouldn't want their spouse
to know. I don't think it's about everyone, but I
think you know, there's a statistic that says people think
about sex every sixteen seconds or something crazy like that seconds. Yeah,

(21:42):
I don't know. Maybe that's just perverts who perverts of America.
They're all perverts. Um. They pulled from the registry. They
pulled undred people on the registry anyway. No, So my

(22:05):
point is about this particular UM location, right. They they
they had a bunch of background actors there and I
see this one person in particularly. They said, hey, Lauren,
you have to you have to look at this particularly.
This is gonna be the girl that you that you
look at beautiful girl dropped at gorgeous. Reason why I

(22:26):
can the reason why I could say that the scene
where you look at me is later. No, no, no,
you didn't have You didn't have the banks. You didn't
have the banks. How bangs are up? Give me another one? Okay, okay, okay, okay. Um.
But the person that I was that I was assigned
to look at was the next girlfriend of mine. No,

(22:48):
and it ended terribly Yeah, it did terribly weirdly, but
they had said, oh man, this is the person you
have to look at, and I was so uncomfortable. I
was so called them by the end of it, though
they I didn't see her, and I didn't see her
in the cut. I didn't see her the cut, so
I was like, okays would have felt like, Yo, how

(23:10):
awkward was that? It was very awkward for me, very
very awkward for me. Um. You know, go to our
patreon and I'll tell you the full story, but I
can't tell you. Oh that's like my living nightmare. Yeah yeah,
it was bad. Wow, and you survived to tell the
tale I did. I did. That's some good tea, and

(23:34):
that's hot and piping. Stop talking about her? Right? Um? Okay?

(23:54):
So schmidt Is is pretending to be um Tegern. By
the way of the laugh out loud lines of this
episode is when he says, you know what I'm gonna say, Yeah,
Solo Tug Time truly one of the funniest. I should
text JJ and be like who came up with that joke?

(24:14):
Because honestly, I was like, I laughed out loud, Solo
Tug Time is so funny. Am I gonna given him
any name? And I'm like, did you guys name him tug?
Just for that joke? Because it's so worth it a
thousand percent fully respected. Have you ever Have you ever
been mistaken for someone? You know what? Only once I

(24:37):
was mistaken for someone and it was the most surreal thing.
I had just moved to La. I didn't know anybody,
um babs is that you? Um No? I remember, and
a friend of mine had also moved down here, and
he was working for like a big record company and

(25:01):
so he had a little bit of income and a
bunch of them are going to Nobu and I was like,
oh my gosh, it's so fancy. I couldn't have already
d a Nobu and I, um, it was just really
phere He's like, I'll pick you up, and he had
like whatever artists that you know he was working with
at the time, and pick me up and in a
limo because that's back in the day where that was
like a flex like a problem limo. Yeah, there's a

(25:25):
bunch of us they're picking up. This is like pre
uber so we all kind of loaded it. The I
don't remember. There's definitely some shamps. Love some samps and snacks.
I loves some shamps. So we pull up at Nobu
and get out and I had bangs. I'd pull my
hair in a ponytail, and all of a sudden, I
get out of this limo and a thousand like um

(25:47):
flashbulbs go off, and I was like, well, I was like,
who's here? So I'm like looking around, um, and they're
screaming Kim Kim Kim and they're like Kim Kardashian and
I'm looking for Kim Kardashian and I'm like, I wonder
where she is. I don't know where she is. That
she over here, I don't know where she And then

(26:09):
I realized that they're taking pictures of me, and my
friend just grabs my hand and like yanks me inside
of Noboo to eat. I remember sitting there being like, Oh,
she's gonna be so mad because I am not trying
to be you. I don't know why. Maybe she was
coming there the same night and they got tipped off

(26:30):
and I just happened to get out of a limo
and they're like, close enough, take the picture. It's gotta
be her. Maybe you have a resemblance. Maybe at the
time she had bangs, at the time she had bangs,
and yeah, I guess it was like a close enough
situation that they were like, uh, that's fine. And you
know what years later, I would in those first few

(26:51):
years when I started New Girl, I would often get
tagged in Getty as Kim Kardashian. Oh wow. So yeah,
so there was a moment where we had a weird crossover. Um.
I've never been tagged in her bank account though, so
that's a bit of a shame. Well, we gotta do
something about that. Yeah, Eric, Eric ahead, I know you
know her, Damn. On multiple occasions, I've I've you know,

(27:16):
been this is a real thing. I've been mistaken as
that that dude from New Girl, and I just let
them are you get there? Are you that guy? I
oftentimes say no. I say no a lot um um.
But no, there's I once let maybe about I want
to say maybe about ten minutes into a situation, met

(27:39):
a girl at a bar. She kept she thought that
I was Jay Farrow. From now, I get a mistaken
for people a lot. This is the only time I've
taken it far. We're at Roger Room, maybe I forget
some bar, and she thought that I was Jay Farrow
and she was talking to me as if I was
on Saturday Night Live, and I just let her do
it for a long time. We're having We're having conversation.

(27:59):
I'm talking about Lauren Michaels, I'm talking about like how
the writer's room goes, and going on and on, and
finally I was just like, nah, I know I've never
been at Esidel, I'm not Jay Farrell. It didn't end well.
She was very disappointed that I was in Jay Farrell. Yeah,
but that's okay, that's okay, that's okay. But that's the

(28:21):
only time. Does it take a pause from the episode,
just for one second, how do you answer this question
when someone goes like, oh my gosh, you look exactly
look like that guy from New Girl, Like Winston. You
look exactly like him my mood. I'll get it all
the time. What do you say back? Do you say
I am him? Or do you say, yeah, I do

(28:41):
get that a lot. What do you Sometimes if I
if I if I'm like not in a very talkative mood,
or if I'm like if I'm in a rush, or
whatever the case may be, I'll be like, I'll be like, oh, yeah,
I get that all the time. And then I'll just
like smile, laugh it off and keep walking. And then
it's like are you wait? Are you him? And I'll
just keep on. I'll just keep going. But a lot
of times I'll start the bit I say really, I

(29:04):
go yeah, I get the all the time. People always
like that handsome dude or that guy who's just so
charismatic and charming, and you know, I think he's the greatest,
one of the greatest actors. Yeah, one of greatest actors
of all time. Actually, I'll do that bit and then
they catch on that I am him, right, because it's
it's a hard one to get out of without making
them feel you know what I mean, I feel embarrassed.

(29:25):
I would be like, oh gosh, wait a minute, you
are the person whatever. I just said. Uh, I got
annoyed the other day though someone did it. Someone did that,
and they wouldn't stop though telling me that I wasn't him.
After I tried to go, yeah, it's nice to meet you,
and it was like, no, you're not, and then they
would they kept coming back up to me and my
friends to like complain that I'm not him, and I

(29:47):
was like, all right, this is getting old now, like yeah,
it was cool. Sorry, dude, disappoint you. Yeah, oh she
said that on TV, he's he's she thought. She's like,
I'm shorter, you know then than I should be. I'm
not as charming as I should be. Uh yeah, I
look similar. I look similar but much better looking on TV.

(30:11):
She was going in and I was like, it's going in,
you go sit your ass down, get the hell out
of my face. This is starting to get weird now,
So if we gotta jump back in, because um, I
feel like every single time we do a Hannah Lamore
and Mess Around podcast episode, we should just call it
like the Hannah Lamore and he Gentle mess Around episode.

(30:38):
There's no way to stay on track. There's too much
to talk about. We're too close friends where we just
like we pop off. That's just how we are. You're
really getting insight not only our friendship, but how we
were for like a decade that we could cover ninety
topics in sixty seconds and it was like perfect conversation. Goodbye.
Um Okay, here's the thing, the thing that I really
got thinking about with the Winston Shelby storyline. Does sex

(31:00):
define a romantic relationship I meet personally? I don't think
it defines it, but it is part of the definition, right,
you know, I think there are multiple things that um
that that you have to take into consideration. However, if
you are if you are you know, young, we don't

(31:23):
even matter. You know, you don't have to be young.
If you're physically attracted to people and you have working tools,
you know, and once in a while you should put
those tools to use, sure and fulfill some of it.
You know, you describe some of those itches. And if
you're not, it causes a person to wonder why not, um,
if you're not open and communicative about it at about

(31:44):
the why not? That where that's where it could become
a problem. Now, there are some people who who who
aren't necessarily that sexually motivated in relationship that's truly is
not part of the definition. It's a bonus, it's a
plug us. But they both have that understanding. If that's
what it is, Schmidt, I mean, Winston and Shelby, they're

(32:07):
on two different pages. And I I don't think it's the sex.
I think it's the communication. That's what's good. Yeah, that's
the thing too. I was watching, because you're just watching,
you're in like, well, this it's not about the sex.
Like there's a reason why because if you were having
it before and then all of a sudden, you haven't
for close to a month right then. And he wasn't
on tour, you know what I'm saying. He was tour.

(32:29):
You know, it's like you want to be like, well,
what's changed and why don't you And it seems like
they had like they were just incompatible and like their
sense of humor they were incompatible, and how they dealt
with conflict, they were incompa like all of that stuff.
You're just like, oh, that's the thing. So that's just
the one thing I love about this show is that

(32:52):
they present things and they deal with it on the
surface like we most of us, especially in our twenties,
when you're dating, do like, they don't have sex with me,
I don't want to be with them right right, But
then it's what they do. It's so smart with the
writing and this is JJ's episode, who's so talented and
so wonderful. But they show you those little insights to

(33:14):
root causes of the relationships, of of what's making it
work or what's breaking it apart. But they let the
characters deal with it like you really would, right, But
they let the audience see these two aren't a really
good fit. Well's yeah, it's foreshadowing note you know, we'll
talk about that in another time. But what's really under

(33:36):
the surface, you know what I mean? Like, what's you know?
And it goes back to even in the beginning, why
they broke up, why they end up getting back together,
do they actually know each other? There's a lot, there's
a lot to unpack there with their relationship. And I think, well, obviously,
if you're a fan of New Girl, you know how
it ends. But you know communication is at its core. Yeah,

(34:01):
I think if you're not communicating, then who cares if
you're having sexually? Not like that's you know what I mean?
There's so many like big meme moments that happens in
this episode that I didn't realize they all came from
this episode, right, Like with Nick banging his head against
the pillow, like lying there like a little toothpick and

(34:22):
he's banging his head against the pillow. I've seen that
a million times. The cc lion about the Taylor Swift
range of emotions means I should come over. I've seen
that a million times. I didn't realize it was all
in this episode. Oh yeah, oh yeah. It's a lot
of memable moments on this shows, memable moments. She was

(34:45):
one of the more memable shows I think. Yeah, And
I didn't realize that. I thought like fluffers and one
that I like think about a lot when I think
back of like, you know, my favorite New Girl episodes.
But I was like, oh wow, there's a lot of
things that the fans really like latched on onto um
and have made like these big iconic moments coming off
of New Girl. Another thing, yes, people ask all the time,

(35:08):
you know because Nick Nick. I don't know if this
is just the Jake Johnson thing. He loves getting into
slap fights. I've been in multiple He's been in a
lot with Schmidt. It's just and what's interesting, I think
the script will say, script will say one person slaps
Nick and that's it, just to keep him in lyne.

(35:28):
But Jake always goes back and it becomes a whole
thing where you're like, you got heavy knuckles, bro, Like
you can't your palms, your palms are very very rigid
and dry, like you can't. You can't slap my face
like that. And Jake loves too and he's not any
and he's not He's not careful, you know what I mean.

(35:50):
I'm very delicate. Jake is not careful. We get into
a slap fight and yet again I have a headache
because he's clocking like like aggressively, you know what I mean.
So for those out there who are probably wondering, yeah,
that shit was real. Yeah that shit hurt. Here's what's
interesting though, because there's a little bit of what goes

(36:13):
around comes around and what you're saying. Because later in
the series, and we'll get to that episode, but it
was in I think the last season, right, maybe Jake
did that with another actor, right, Oh yes, and he
got really really hurt because it went a step too far, yep,

(36:36):
and it was bad. It was bad for everybody all around.
It was an accident and everyone felt super terrible. But
that's that thing where you're doing physical contact and when
you haven't communicated and been clear upfront about how light
we're gonna go yeah, or how heavy we're gonna go. Yes,
somebody's gonna get hurt. And it's in our show. In

(36:57):
our series, the one person actually got hurt and had
to go see a doctor because of a fight that
happens in the show was exactly and we'll tell you
more about that later. Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's a crazy
episode and you know, it's really nuts, and when we
finally do that episode. I found this recently. I have

(37:18):
a video because I was for that episode. I was
standing behind the fake hallway door that's supposed to be
like the stairs of the building, so across from the
elevator in that hallway, waiting for my queue to come
out because I joined the scene at a certain point,
and I took a little video through the window because

(37:40):
I was like, oh, this is funny, and it didn't
catch the hit, but it caught a lot of other stuff.
So I'll drop it when we do that. Yeah, I know,
I've never shared it I should text it you. I've
never shared it with anybody before, kind of turn it
into an NFTE World song, Like I was like, oh
my gosh, yeah you did. You got slapped a lot.

(38:01):
You got slapped a lot that was not scripted. I'm
not okay with that. I'm not. I still I still,
I still have a problem sleeping at night. Um um.
Overall with this episode, um, you know what we learn
about relationships friendships? You know? Did you did you watch
this episode take anything away from it? Or or are

(38:24):
these lessons that you've already because it sounds like you
know with your key a friend, these are some life
lessons that you already know. Yeah. I mean I think
that that which was funny because that was prett new girl,
that wonderful friendship that I had. Um. But this this
episode reminded me so much of that stage in your
life where you can't ignore certain signs right and you

(38:49):
have to kind of do the hard thing. And I
just thought they wrote that scene so beautiful of confrontation
between Nick and Jess right where she's like I'm not
that you know, and then he's kind of breaking open
too and talking about well I am attracted to you
sometimes and I'm okay with that actually, because I don't
want to actually like have sex with you, intimate with you,

(39:10):
but I can accept that. And then realizing that every
relationship looks different, friendship, intimate relationships, all of them look different,
and as long as you can both set the boundaries
and respect them, then that's what works for you. Right.
I think that, I don't know, it was really interesting

(39:31):
because I know that so many of us have friends
of the opposite sex and you kind of just have
to you do have to figure out where the line is. Yeah,
I think so my takeaway from this thing from this
episode was that it's okay to cheat. I don't know,

(39:53):
cheat in your mind. I really was like a big
thing for Winston to say, to be like, well, everybody
or who says it to him, Max nah Schmidt says it.
He's like everybody does it. That's just normal, like a
human instinct to like fantasize and think about other people.
And it's okay, Yeah, it's like, I think so that really,
I mean, my brain does not work like that at all. Sure, sure, Hannah,

(40:16):
it just doesn't. Sure it doesn't. You know me well
enough to know what does when the transport guys show
up on a New Girl wearing those tight jeans, no,
wearing those Confederate flags or their shirts show thank you,
no thank you to everybody, just no thank you. Oh
my gosh. That is Honestly, if you see me looking
at you and my eyes kind of glaze over, it's

(40:39):
because like I'm hungry and I'm thinking about, like can
I pick up my phone and look at the postmaid's
app or something like it's there's no, that's not where
my mind goes. Do there's no? Yeah, it's all you know,
I'm a child of like the nineties. It's all like
stranger danger. I'm not interested in stranger danger. I don't
know you. I don't know where you've been. Everybody thinking
about you're doing up. Everybody's terrified, everybody's terrified. Um, Hannah,

(41:05):
I got a question for you. Yeah, it's a very
serious questions. I'm not sure if you um not sure

and I Reddit threat comes up episode New Girls, Season two,
episode three review Fluffer. There's only one sentence. I'm sure
too thought Winston was great. That's the whole that's the

(42:54):
whole thing. Glad to see my reviews are getting posted
you not Finally people are sharing my ship. Welcome, We're

(43:15):
back and it's time for true American. A big question,
big game here it is what songs would be on
your sexy mix Triumph? I wou tank Claire stop it. Hmm,

(43:42):
I can tell you right now as a few um
Pony Genuine, Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh. So I
looked at this list right that Joeld sent like of
all of the questions and the recap and everything before
I came on, and I was like, I don't know
what Talcle do on my say, I guess Pony by Januine. Yeah, yeah,

(44:05):
you gotta do it. You gotta have that on there.
But how weird that our brains went into the same thing.
If that song came on, I would be like I
would feel like I was like in a full music video.
I feel like if a boy played that song, I'd
be like and like, I feel like those like automatic
candles would just go and they'll lights and they'll lights
to go and then they'll be like black sheets or something,

(44:28):
and I'd be like that one one, I'd be like,
what that song comes on, I'm breaking out the baby
oil and I'm humping something. There's an ottoman, a couch,
maybe like Johnson and Johnson's Baby. You'll be like, okay, gosh,
I'm dying. I could think of yeah, but also I

(44:51):
would be because sometimes you gotta slow it down, because
that's a bit aggressive. Sometimes you want a romance. Sometimes
you want to lay a person down on that ottoman
that you might have been and sandomizing yourself. I don't
know when you were alone. You know, you find you
find a way. So if you okay, wait, what's your
slow romantic song? A Woman's Worth, Woman's Word by Max? Oh?

(45:18):
It right now? Yeah? Okay? Did you do you hear
all the panties melting across America? I just heard a
bunch of dolphins lose their mind. The dogs are howling.
Dolphins communicate very well, and I'm a communicator. Ladies, Oh
my god, I literally realize that you and I are

(45:39):
so sympatico and like romantic sexy music. That's right, that's right.
I never knew that in our whole friendship will swap playlists.
We will swap playlist, well, we swapped sexy playlist. It
would just be the same, same songs they like. You
stole much shit? That would be it. I forgot to

(46:00):
give it to you. I still have it in my hand.
