Speaker 1 (00:31):
Oh, hello, Lamurn, let's patch in, Hannah.

Speaker 2 (00:34):
God, I forgot what it was like working with you guys.

Speaker 1 (00:52):
All right, hello and welcome to Welcome to our show.

Speaker 2 (00:59):
How is that? Was it sexy enough? Or too? Very sexy?
Very sexy?

Speaker 1 (01:07):
So today we're talking about episode two O seven.

Speaker 2 (01:11):
Menzies, mensies.

Speaker 3 (01:13):
I've never heard that shortened term for menstruation, by the way,
I have my mensies?

Speaker 2 (01:18):
Have you ever heard that before?

Speaker 1 (01:19):
I had heard it, but it's not something I had
heard regularly.

Speaker 2 (01:24):
I'll admit to that.

Speaker 1 (01:25):
I definitely heard it, but it yeah, wasn't It wasn't
commonly commonly used.

Speaker 2 (01:32):
Can I just say.

Speaker 1 (01:33):
First of all that I happened to have the only
scene I've ever shown my kids from New Girl is
this puppy and.

Speaker 2 (01:42):
A cup scene?

Speaker 1 (01:43):
And it happened to be like a few days ago
before I even realized this is the episode we were
doing today. And I showed it to them because they
had found a picture of a Pomeranian and a cup
and they were freaking out over how cute it was.
And I was like, wait just a second, let me
show you something. And it was really funny to watch
them because they like got the comedy of the scene

even though they're little, you know, it was kind of
it was it was cool to.

Speaker 3 (02:09):
Say, you know, did they get sad when they realized
that the puppy is dead?

Speaker 2 (02:14):
Yeah? I was just about to say, Charlie so little
his eyes were watering. Yeah, it was.

Speaker 1 (02:21):
It was really I was like it and they were like,
but it's fake, right, it's fake, right, that dog's totally alive.
I mean in theory, we're just gonna say and it
was just pretend and not real, and but yeah, it was.

Speaker 2 (02:39):
It was cute, Yeah, it was. It was cute. Yeah.

Speaker 1 (02:42):
So I love this episode, such a fun episode, and
you know what, like it's probably going to be banned
in Florida soon, so like let's chat about it.

Speaker 2 (02:51):
Did you hear about this? What? Why?

Speaker 3 (02:54):

Speaker 1 (02:57):
Apparently girls aren't allowed to talk about menstruation in school.

Speaker 2 (03:03):
In Florida, like or.

Speaker 1 (03:06):
This is this is like something that's being proposed right now.
It's something that's being proposed that girls should not be
allowed to talk about menstruation except in sex ad from
like six to twelfth grade. Like say a girl starts
menstruating before the age of eleven or twelve than their

sol so because they're not allowed.

Speaker 2 (03:33):
To talk about it.

Speaker 1 (03:36):
Not sure what harm can come from talking about menstruation, but.

Speaker 2 (03:42):
You know, I don't really I've never understood it at all.

Speaker 3 (03:47):
It's how we all are here on the planet because
of this absolutely normal human bodily function that yeah, helps
us create life period. Yeah you know what I mean, Like,
it's so bizarre to ban what what? Yeah again, Oh

my head hurts, it's bananas to me, But I digress. Well,
I'm glad they we're gonna talk about mensies loudly than
today to.

Speaker 1 (04:18):
Talk about loudly and hope everyone in Florida is listening
and hopefully this, uh, this proposed bill does not.

Speaker 2 (04:30):
Come to fruition.

Speaker 1 (04:32):
Yeah, but yeah, I really enjoyed getting to revisit this episode.
It was written by Kim Rosenstock directed by Jason Wallner.
What do you remember about about this episode, Hannah?

Speaker 3 (04:47):
Honestly, when I rewatched it, I think so far in
our podcast. This is the one that made me laugh
out loud multiple times and caught me off guard because
I had I had forgotten that all three of you

and up in the water massage. Oh yeah, yeah, it
just I started out like I died laughing with Jake,
but when you're in there, I don't know. The way
he was handling you was so funny. And then to
put Lamarn in there in the tag, I just lost it.
It was just such a funny running thing to squeeze

in in twenty one minutes because.

Speaker 1 (05:34):
I was it was a random like. You know what's
funny is it was kind of a random like. It
feels kind of out of left field, but then it
really works. But I guess, you know, now looking at
it again, I'm just I'm kind of recalling that. I
don't know if you remember this, maybe because you weren't
in this part so you might not remember, but that

the it had a different ending in the in the
original table read and they were trying to figure out
the ending, and they added this whole Tran piece with
the like water massage. At like part way through the week,
they were like, Okay, we figured it out. It's a
water massage. And I remember Jake was like, wait what

because it does feel out of left field, but then
you know what, it totally works and it introduces one
of our favorite characters, Tran, and it's really a funny bit.
So and you know what, I really enjoyed this episode
because it's kind of an exploration of sensitivity and you know,

like all of our emotional lives.

Speaker 3 (06:43):
Yeah, it was just there's a line that Jake says
where he's he has to take off his clothes and
then all of a sudden you cut to him in
the water and he goes, this is a moment that
cut away from me. And then you can see that
on your face when it's happening, and then on the
morn's face when it's happening.

Speaker 2 (07:01):
Man, and we've all had those things. We're like, you
know what, I'm gonna surrender to the thing.

Speaker 3 (07:04):
I'm gonna do it, especially while all this like New
Age wou stuff that happens now and then sometimes you're
just like, wait, what's happening here?

Speaker 2 (07:10):
I don't, I can't what's going on?

Speaker 1 (07:12):
Yeah, I think there's a point at which you decide
you're going with it or not. That's like I'm going
with it, I'm going with it and going I'm not
going with it.

Speaker 2 (07:22):
I gotta get out of here. I got.

Speaker 1 (07:24):
I mean, obviously Nick is like fully you know, buying,
you know, fully fully buying into it, you know. Yeah,
oh sorry, go ahead.

Speaker 3 (07:36):
Should we just start to go through this episode like
a little bet because there's so many parts of it
that I was like, they're just so smart how they
put this one together. And that's so much credit to
Kim because she's super brilliant.

Speaker 2 (07:52):
Yeah, one of the writers. She's the math.

Speaker 3 (07:54):
I also like went back and paused to see who
wrote it because I was like, this better be a
woman because there's a lot of like deep specifics about
having your period.

Speaker 2 (08:08):
And yes, it was one of the best female writers. Yeah.

Speaker 3 (08:11):
So it starts off that you're broker, that Ess is
broker than Schmidt, which is an all time loan Schmidt's.

Speaker 2 (08:19):
You mean broker than Nick? Oh, broker than Nick. Yeah,
I'm broker.

Speaker 1 (08:24):
Yeah, Jess is broker than Nick, which is like an
all time low, and she can't pay the back gas bill, right.

Speaker 2 (08:31):
Yeah, And it's funny where he what does?

Speaker 3 (08:34):
He says, like, you're basically trying to use your period
card to get out of, uh, stepping up to your responsibilities.

Speaker 1 (08:43):
Well, first they're asking her to pay money that she
doesn't have, and then she's like kind of putting off
getting a job a little bit, and then they kind
of push her too far, and she admits, like, it's
that time of the month and I'm not like feeling
like you guys pushing me this hard.

Speaker 2 (09:03):
You know.

Speaker 3 (09:05):
One of my favorite lines in all of that is
when Nick is going like, I don't think it's fair
that women have an excuse once a month to act
irrationally angry when the rest of us have to take
it together all the time. Like I narrowly needed to
go out and buy a fainting couch because I was
because I forgot I don't have this, you know, episode
memorized I don't know, and I was sort of like,
excuse me, if we're talking about anger issues. I don't

think that the female of the species is the ones
that people look at and think of that for, and
then Jess goes on a rant right back at him
and says exactly that.

Speaker 2 (09:37):
So I come you act.

Speaker 1 (09:38):
Irrationally angry three hundred and sixty five days. Yeah, all
the time, all the damn time. Nick calls Jess a
ninny in this episode. Do you know what a ninny is?

Speaker 2 (09:52):
I don't know, like the word origin of ninny, I do.
It's short for nincome poop? Is it really? Yeah? Nincompoops
such a great it's a great word.

Speaker 1 (10:01):
You don't hear it very much. It's like a very
old fashioned word.

Speaker 2 (10:04):
I like them. But what is an income poop? Like?
What is it? Is it like a stick in the mud?

Speaker 3 (10:10):

Speaker 1 (10:11):
Is it a complainer? What is it like somebody who
whinds a lot?

Speaker 2 (10:15):
I feel like if.

Speaker 3 (10:15):
Someone's an income poop, they're just being like a bit
of a dummy. You're such an income poop.

Speaker 2 (10:20):
Let's see should I look it up? Look it up.
I'm gonna look it up. Hang on, we're gonna bring
it back. We're gonna bring it back. Let's find the
exact say.

Speaker 3 (10:30):
Keep it in my back pocket. And the next one
we do with Lemourn if he says something crazy.

Speaker 1 (10:36):
Oh, you're right, it's a foolish or a stupid person.
There you go, yeah right, yeah, but I know ninny is.

Speaker 2 (10:42):
Short for an income poop. Yeah, great word, great word,
great word.

Speaker 1 (10:47):
So Jess says the nick needs to be nice to
her because she's pmssaying, and then she sort of describes
what it feels like to be pmssaying. She feels like
she's laid a million eggs and they're all hatchets. She
wants to murder someone and also eat.

Speaker 2 (11:03):
A soft pretzel. That feels really accurate.

Speaker 3 (11:07):
Ye, you know, it was very accurate When she's like, yeah,
Devil's in my belly. I was just and to be
honest with you, I feel like, I mean, I don't
know if you felt like this from a young age,
but women have been taught to kind of no talk
about it, hid it away, pretend it's never happening. It's
not like girls are volunteering to talk about it. But
it glts okay, but it's not.

Speaker 2 (11:30):
It's not.

Speaker 1 (11:31):
It's so insane that you're not you're not supposed to
talk about No.

Speaker 3 (11:37):
I remember being like pe in middle school and they're
just like run a lap and I'm like I and
you do yeah, or we have to get the nurse's
office since yeah, all of it was just it's so
bizarre that the world hasn't made any like adjustments for
people that are just standing there bleeding once about it

happens rarely, it happens often.

Speaker 2 (12:03):
Support somebody at all times, at all times, at all times.
I was really happy.

Speaker 3 (12:09):
I remember when we read the did the table read
for this episode that I was like, Yeah, we should
normalize this.

Speaker 2 (12:14):
Let's talk about it.

Speaker 3 (12:15):
Let this incredible woman who lives with three men say,
let me paint a picture and.

Speaker 1 (12:22):
Let her inspire one of them to have his period too. Yeah, okay,
let him be inspired.

Speaker 3 (12:32):
He's like, like, the worst pain I've ever felt, it
must be a period.

Speaker 1 (12:37):
Yeah yeah, I mean, listen, not it's not childbirth, but
it's not pleasant.

Speaker 2 (12:42):
It's not as bad as childbirth, but it's not pleasant. Okay, Okay.

Speaker 1 (12:48):
So after this beginning scene, so basically Schmidt turns the
gas off, and so they have no hot water, and
so Jazz basically need to get a job so that
she can get the money to get the gas turned
back on and take a shower. I mean, that's that
feels like very base level, like, I mean, that's very motivating,

like I'd be like, absolutely need to get a job.

Speaker 3 (13:15):
It's very motivating, but it's one of those moments where
you're like, I don't know a world where Schmidt wouldn't
have a hot shower.

Speaker 1 (13:24):
I think he's saying a shower at the gym, right, maybe,
I mean that's what he's saying.

Speaker 2 (13:28):
A shower at the gym for sure, or his work,
you know what I mean, He's got to be doing something. Yeah,
he's not.

Speaker 1 (13:34):
He's not missing out on on a on a hygiene.

Speaker 2 (13:38):
And basically for sure, there's no way, no, no.

Speaker 3 (13:41):
There's also that great storyline that goes on with him
and the incredibly talented, wonderful car.

Speaker 1 (13:50):
Yes, yeah, he has a great storyline with her, and
she's like another awesome boss lady.

Speaker 2 (14:00):
In the in the pray.

Speaker 1 (14:03):
In the amazing uh new Girald tradition of Schmidt's bosses.

Speaker 2 (14:09):
Yeah, that's right, right, forgot about that. You're right, there's
more to come.

Speaker 3 (14:14):
Yes, that felt like such like a left field thing,
but I guess that was in the are you are
you a good person or a bad person storyline that
they're trying to figure out with Schmidt and CC even
trying to shut it out.

Speaker 1 (14:28):
I like that kind of you know that when when
you're like, am I I'm not. Like, it's like that
CEC so identifies with being a bad girl, that she's
like both of them. Do you know that that that
CC kind of has to make peace with it to
be with Robbie.

Speaker 2 (14:48):

Speaker 3 (14:49):
I remember shooting that scene with Max on the edge
of the bed, and the reason I remember it is I.

Speaker 2 (14:59):
He sneezed.

Speaker 3 (15:04):
In the middle of this scene that we both struggled
to take seriously because it's just like a weird thing
to do, you know, to be like I'm bad.

Speaker 2 (15:11):
You're bad.

Speaker 3 (15:11):
It just like felt so weird to be like trying
to really sell it or just like trying not to laugh.
And then out of nowhere, he sneezed and it blew
my bangs fully back and caught me so off guard,
and I remember saying, oh my god, I just got
a glaucoma test because it felt like it was just
air like blew my eye open. It was the most

aggressive sneeze, and I like, I still remember it to
this day.

Speaker 2 (15:34):
And I watched that.

Speaker 3 (15:35):
Scene and I could see it be like it's either
the beginning of whatever part of my coverage of some
part of the scene, you could see like this weird
smile in my face. I'm like, oh, that must have
been just after the sneeze. My eyes look like they're watering.

Speaker 1 (15:48):
It's funny, like a behind the scene thing I remember
from this episode was that the day I shot that
puppy in a Cup scene, I think it was the
day after the Emmys and that I had gone and
it's like they always have them on a Sunday, and
I'm like, this is the punishment for actors, because if

you're working, you have to go to work at like
five am on a Monday, and if you want to
like go and celebrate like at an award show, you're
going to be out like lead than you should be
to wake up at five am. And I was so
tired that it like made it really easy to be

emotional about the puppy in a cup. It was actually perfect.
I was like, I was like, oh my god, how
am I going to go to work today? I'm really tired.
And then I was like, this is perfect. Use it.

Speaker 3 (16:45):
It was a great cry, Like you do sell that
cry you feel.

Speaker 2 (16:52):
I was sad about the puppy in the cup.

Speaker 3 (16:55):
You can tell you can I know how much you
love dogs, so it was you can really tell. And
then when she says yes, she was, you just see
this look in your eyes where you almost draw back
like it's the best.

Speaker 2 (17:08):
So I understand why it lives in the meme world.
It's so good memorable moments.

Speaker 1 (17:15):
I really liked that scene on the page was just
really funny. It was just a really funny scene of
such a well written scene. Anyway, I digress. I just
figured I would I would share another memory.

Speaker 2 (17:32):
Okay, So.

Speaker 1 (17:35):
In the park, Nick meets Tran played by ralph On Rip.
We lost ralph On last year, I believe, and he
was such a great addition to our New Girl extended
cast members and we remember him fondly. I think this

was one of my favorite guest stars we ever had.

Speaker 3 (18:00):
Yeah, it's really interesting because as you watched that scene
where they're just well or Nick is just chatting at
Tran on the on the bench, you can I feel
like I could pick out moments that it was Jake improvising,
because there's one line where he looks and goes and
you can just hear Jake's like voice because he's like, uh,

are you just gonna nod and laugh at everything I say.

Speaker 2 (18:27):
He just said it in a way. Now, look, it
may have been written on the PA.

Speaker 3 (18:30):
I'd have to go back and look at the script
that was written or if it was an alt or something.
But the way he said it was like he was
clocking how Ralph was going to do the scene, you
know what I mean, Like where he's like, this is
the character I'm created, and this is how I'm going
to handle it, and Jake like clocks it as he's
been doing alt after Alton, line after line, going I really.

Speaker 2 (18:46):
Do that improvise a lot.

Speaker 1 (18:50):
That at least like the episodes going forward with Tran,
Like I'm pretty sure there was a lot of improvisation
because it's just like just because Trey and doesn't really talk,
it kind of gives like this blank slate to Jake,
And you know that's what's fun about it.

Speaker 2 (19:09):
I Mean it's interesting too because we say Tran, but
he never confirms that's his name.

Speaker 3 (19:16):
Oh yeah, I guess just a look.

Speaker 1 (19:19):
And then next like that it's the fourth name he
guesses too.

Speaker 2 (19:24):
He's like, is your name like Jim uh Scott John Tran.

Speaker 1 (19:31):
I'm like, wait a second, you you only went through
like four names that you came up with.

Speaker 2 (19:38):

Speaker 3 (19:38):
Yeah, he never gave me some like audible confirmation or
a high five. I wonder how many times Tran speaks
a new girl, because he does say a line when
a couple of.

Speaker 1 (19:48):
Lines, but I don't think I think they he says lines.
But then I don't think they had him speak a
lot later because I think they hit on It was
really funny about that relationship. And it's just like Nick
talking non stop and try and like just being silent
is very like a fundy combination.

Speaker 2 (20:10):
It's such a funny bit.

Speaker 3 (20:11):
Like it's the only thing he says in this episode
is you're a huge baby. I was like, if that's
the only thing he says in this series, that's the
funniest shit ever. If that's the only time we hear
him speak, I feel like he says one thing at
some point later in episodes. I guess we'll find out
as we watch, but yeah, whack me up. I'm like,

if that was your one line of this series.

Speaker 2 (20:34):
It was a huge baby and it was one point,
Yeah you have diagnosed this man.

Speaker 1 (20:48):
Wolcoh Okay, So Schmidt is falling for the vice president
of his company, please buy Carla Gagino.

Speaker 2 (21:02):
But what's funny?

Speaker 1 (21:03):
I think in this scene with Schmidt, she makes him
sign like a crazy contract so that they can have
like a sexual relationship, I think. But let's see, here
are some things involved in the contract. Party A absolves

Party B of any psychological trauma, whether temporary, permanent, future,
or imagined possible exposure to lead. Pete, do you have
a latex allergy? Guaranteed mercury poison.

Speaker 2 (21:39):
That's what made me laugh. Guaranteed.

Speaker 1 (21:45):
Yeah, some really funny stuff with Schmidt and Emma in
this episode.

Speaker 3 (21:52):
There's like such a new girl thing of like character
writing that happens in this episode that I love is
that this could have so easily just been like a
one dimensional, you know, sex dominate trix boss and that
could have been it for this storyline. But at the end,
when she's like tying him up, he sees that she's

struggling and then calls her out on it being her
first time, and you just watch Carla like have this
real moment of vulnerability and it's to save herself in it,
And I feel like that's why this show people responded
to it. With this there's always just like this little
bit of heart. There's always like this little bit of

just being a real person who doesn't have it all together,
as opposed to making her this flat character. Yeah, they
could have ended like that, and I loved it.

Speaker 2 (22:46):
I loved it. Yeah.

Speaker 3 (22:47):
Then it was her text her in the moment. It's
a sweet, tiny thing. But I don't know, I thought
it was really sweet in the writing.

Speaker 1 (22:54):
It's funny because you, Anne Schmidt are going through like
opposite things, Like he's being pushed to like the like
like edgy or side of himself and you're being pushed
to the more like wholesome side of yourself.

Speaker 3 (23:10):
Right, And I think what eventually happens is we realize
we can't live in either of those extremes. Just being
seen as like the good girl and just being good
that's hard. Yeah, that's actually hard thing to live up to.
And then he discovers you know that for himself eventually too,
that just being like the bad boy doing the crazy things,
that's a hard world to just stay in.

Speaker 2 (23:32):
All the time.

Speaker 1 (23:33):
Yes, yeah, So speaking of bad, Schmidt turns the gas
off in the apartment, and what's funny is that he
just like, look, I should know this, but like at
the it's like he just turns the gas off and
then at the end he just turns it back on.

Speaker 2 (23:52):
Is that like even a thing? Like very weird? Somebody
have to do that?

Speaker 3 (23:57):
Like he makes the phone call, Remember when he's calling
and he's like thanks Denise, Thanks Denise, And he's getting
it turned off, so he makes a phone call to
get it.

Speaker 1 (24:06):
Turned away, turn it back, turning it back on. Isn't
he like turning some kind of a switch or something.
I'm like, does Schmidt like work for the gas company?

Speaker 2 (24:14):
Now? Like I think he's just.

Speaker 3 (24:17):
Turning the faucet, right, I think that's what was happening,
Like he's got to turn back on. They're doing a
ceremonial thing and he turns the facet and then they
have to wait whenever it was six to ten minutes
for the water to kick in.

Speaker 1 (24:30):
Did we did we jump around? To jump around? Like
more than once on New Girl? I have multiple memories
I feel like of.

Speaker 2 (24:37):
Jumping like that that song it.

Speaker 3 (24:41):
Did feel familiar, but I didn't know if it was
from this. But I don't feel like I've watched the
ending of this episode more than like when it first
came out and then.

Speaker 1 (24:49):
I was jumping around with Damon at some point and
I'm like, was that just like like so, I'm like
that had to have been like later, because like Damon
wasn't in this episode, and like he wasn't in the bathroom,
Like I remember being in the bathroom with Damon like
jumping around, and I'm like, what is that a creative memory?

Speaker 2 (25:09):
Did somebody just like play that.

Speaker 1 (25:11):
On set and we were just being stupid jumping around,
you know what?

Speaker 2 (25:15):
I do think that happened for sure.

Speaker 1 (25:17):
Yeah, Well sometimes people would play like music on set, Yeah,
you would get Yeah, we definitely got late night zoomi'es
a lot because we were there all the time. Okay,
so Schmid turns off the gas, which means no one
can take a shower, and everyone is mad. Everyone has

their periods now and now Jess has to go to
a meeting, you know, and then Nick is mad, and
then Winston gets his period, right.

Speaker 2 (25:52):
Yeah, and he calls it a sympathy period.

Speaker 3 (25:54):
I feel like, you know, they talk about it with
pregnancy that oh, you know, you're part partner can get
like sympathy pains.

Speaker 2 (26:03):
Yeah, and that to me is totally insane.

Speaker 1 (26:07):
Well, I think usually it's like the partner can gain
weight with the because there's more food being consumed.

Speaker 3 (26:16):
I've had friends tell me that they're like, he's complaining
to me that his like lower back hurts like sympathy
pains in the pregnancy, which I'm like, it feels like
that should be on that show, like The Hundred Dumbest
Ways to Die, Like, don't tell a pregnant one that
you're yeah, you're fine. So when he talks about having

a sympathy period and you're actually having your period, I
feel like Jess's response was very tempered and ballid.

Speaker 2 (26:49):
What what did I say? I said something like, don't
steal my menzies. Yeah, I said like, don't don't steal
my shit or something. Right though, Right, it's like you're men,
you have all these other things. Don't take you don't
take my one thing.

Speaker 1 (27:07):
But then it feels like at a certain point then
they're like experiencing things together.

Speaker 3 (27:12):
Well, then they bond over it because that is the
one thing when you're feeling emotional and hormonal, it's nice
to have.

Speaker 2 (27:19):
Someone else who feels the same way.

Speaker 3 (27:21):
That's all right, I'll take it. If you're gonna sit
here and open up and be a real human with me. Fine,
call it what you want, let's do it together.

Speaker 2 (27:29):

Speaker 1 (27:29):
So Jazz goes to the meeting, uh the job interview
after not getting a shower, and then has.

Speaker 2 (27:37):
The be mimable puppy and a cup moment. Have you
ever had a dog in it or just cats?

Speaker 3 (27:48):
We rescued a dog when we lived in Cyprus once,
a little German shepherd and I named her Zipper, and
that's cute.

Speaker 2 (27:57):
She was very cute.

Speaker 3 (27:58):
And we had three rescue stray cats at the time
that were like old street alley cats and they were
so mean, and so the poor Zipper because we were scared.

Speaker 2 (28:11):
The Zipper was a German shepherd.

Speaker 3 (28:13):
So we're like, oh, gosh, your three cats at home,
and we got it backwards. Those cats were like terrorized
this little puppy. Uh oh, But thankfully I think Mike,
my uncle, ended up. I'm taking Zipper and it was
all fine. But that's the that's the only dog. My
family moved countries.

Speaker 2 (28:28):
You hate dogs, what's your deal? No, we just moved
countries all the time, and so we just never had
hang But dogs can't.

Speaker 3 (28:37):
Like, well, we had the cats, and I feel like
I don't cats in Cyprus, but I didn't have them
in like India or in Saudi Arabia.

Speaker 2 (28:43):
We didn't have them. Grown up, you have cats.

Speaker 3 (28:48):
I lived in apartment buildings where you could have a
small cat, right, I love three, so I know I
won't tell I.

Speaker 2 (28:58):
Stuck them in. I was like, is anyone counting bodies
up here?

Speaker 1 (29:01):
It's like it does anybody, and like this is a
really small cat who hides all the time, and it's mean.

Speaker 3 (29:07):
I mean the apartment that we lived in in Cyprus
where we had the three alley cats and we had
Zipper the dog. We also at one point it had
like guinea pigs in the bathtub.

Speaker 2 (29:15):
We had Bunny.

Speaker 3 (29:16):
Like I love animals, Like I could live on a
farm with a thousand animals.

Speaker 2 (29:20):
I would be so happy bring them all.

Speaker 1 (29:22):
I don't want to take care of a thousand animals.
But it's funny because I actually I really want a cat,
but I've never had a cat.

Speaker 2 (29:31):
I love. We have been talking about this since I
met you, because you want it, Astonish Folds.

Speaker 1 (29:36):
Yeah, I know.

Speaker 2 (29:37):
Now I love cats.

Speaker 3 (29:38):
I like it.

Speaker 1 (29:39):
I think they're so cute and they're so like. I
like their personalities that they just don't care what you
think of them.

Speaker 2 (29:46):
Yeah, they're pretty easy going little kiddies. Yeah. Well maybe
you never know, could be in your future.

Speaker 1 (29:50):
No, no, well yeah, my kids want a cat, so
I think I think we'll get one. They started asking
for another dog, but we already have a dog, and
you know, dogs are a lot more work than cats.

Speaker 2 (30:01):
So I'm like, how about a cat? Yeah? How about
a cat? Yeah?

Speaker 1 (30:07):
Well no, not no goldfish because they're like they just
there's a lot of turnover life turn swing dying, and
it's very disappointing. Every fish I ever had died like
in a week, and I'd be.

Speaker 2 (30:23):
Like, what did I do? True, that's true. Let's reduce
the trauma. Get a cat. Yeah, get a cat. Cats.
Cats want to live.

Speaker 1 (30:32):

Speaker 2 (30:34):
Speaking of swimming around in a very small.

Speaker 3 (30:38):
Uh huh water space, Yeah, I wasn't there when you
guys did this crazy water massage thing.

Speaker 2 (30:44):
What do you remember of it? Where was it? How
weird did it get? I want to say, where were we?
Was like one of these places?

Speaker 1 (30:53):
Like because we shot on the Fox lot in La,
So whenever we had we shot on a location, it
was like some where close by. I think we were shooting,
like maybe in a you know, a hotel like chacuzi
or something like something like that indoor thing that was
close by their a bunch of hotels near Fox. I

can't remember exactly where it was. I just know it
was like an indoor chacuzzi, you know, hot tub thing.
I still have the swimsuit that was my own personal suit.
Oh do you It's a really flattering swimsuit. That's why
I'm like, I still have it. And it's funny because
I even weren't when I was pregnant because I could
put it on like underneath my giant pregnant belly. So yeah,

I still I mean, I I look, that's a great swimsuit.
Great swimsuit, and uh yeah, so yeah, that's what I remember.
I remember that my they had a couple of things
where my stunt double was being like flipped really hard.
They were like wanted him to flip me really hard.

Speaker 2 (31:59):
So my awesome stunt double.

Speaker 1 (32:06):
Came and and Monica Broninger, she came in and doubled
me for those more violent moments. And she was always
an incredible addition to my character, helping me make those
moments funny. And yeah, I mean, I do remember it

was like one of those things we were having. We
were like kind of figuring stuff out in the moment, though,
you know, there was like it was a little bit
because this that that kind of part was written very
last minute. There was a little bit of like on
the day figuring, you know, like where we were figuring

stuff out on the day, and that was like one
of the most fun things about the show I think
was like you know that we had those opportunities.

Speaker 3 (32:56):
Yeah, there's a moment I think with you where he's like,
I'm sorry I touch a boob.

Speaker 4 (33:01):
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to touch the boob because
he's grabbing and moving you around, and you have that
you could feel it when you're watching it where you're
like nobody really knows really what they're doing in this scene,
which is why it's so funny, Like how far do
you go?

Speaker 3 (33:15):
How hard is he going to try to really move her?
And how much is she going to resist and go
like stap like we're not.

Speaker 1 (33:21):
When Tran does it with him, he's like super gentle,
and then when Nick does, he's just like a total maniac,
like that's not that's not water massage, that's like that's
like forced like water acrobatics.

Speaker 3 (33:35):
You know, there's a moment when it's when Winston is
doing it in the tag where because I know our
show well enough to know it probably it was probably
going on for a little longer than it needed to go.

Speaker 2 (33:50):
And it's often the actors who would.

Speaker 3 (33:52):
Go like, I think, I think we're being you know,
dunked in the water a million times. But they end
the episode with like some really crazy movie move happening
on Lamar and then you like just like swimming off
to the ladder, like walking off to the ladder, And
I was like, I feel like that might have been
Zoe being like, I think we're you.

Speaker 2 (34:14):
Guys, I'm pretty sure.

Speaker 1 (34:16):
Well, Also, I feel like we're just like running out
of ideas that have many funny things left to do here. Also,
I don't feel that Lamarn loves the water.

Speaker 2 (34:26):
Is that right? He's not into Like he's not not
that's not his happy place. I don't think.

Speaker 3 (34:33):
No, I'm curious when he's gonna drop is this voice
note to talk about his take on the episode. I
think that there were things that were challenging. I think
and wait, won was the water, and the other was
having your.

Speaker 1 (34:44):
Period, water and cats or his like water cats not
happy Place and being.

Speaker 2 (34:49):
A man with a period.

Speaker 3 (34:50):
It was yeah, it was yeah, yeeah, it's a I
think that was tricky because there's a moment in the
beginning of the episode where Winston tells you, Schmidt, I
have you can't laugh, I'm gonna tell you have my period.
And there are moments where I see Max trying to
Max's face not Schmidt. It's like we're trying to hold

it together but enjoying the fact that Lamourn is to
give this speech about why he thinks he has a period.

Speaker 1 (35:16):
And lamar like, really, I was actually like looking for
like in Winston, I was like looking for the break
of like Lamarne like being annoyed that he had to
pretend to have his period. But I didn't see it
at all. So like, that's off to Lamar and yeah
for keeping it professional. But I don't think this. I
don't think like, I don't know that any guy really

likes to pretend to have their period. But you know what, sorry,
we uh we all have to deal with it, us ladies,
you know. So uh, it's just like I don't feel
so bad for you guys, like having to deal with
it for like a few.

Speaker 3 (35:59):
I mean, yeah, I do think it's a nice moment
at the end though, when he basically says like, oh,
I just like I miss Shelby and you realize like, oh,
this pain in him hurt so bad and is making
him feel angry and emotional and he's starting to relate
to all the things that just saying he deils that
he thinks that that you know, I don't know he

can relate to it so deeply. Yeah, he just needed
a word for all the feelings.

Speaker 2 (36:26):
And it was the.

Speaker 1 (36:27):
Period and now did you find a bear?

Speaker 2 (36:34):
Here? Now it's time for Where's the Bear? Where's the Bear?
Where's the Bear is brought to you by Hyundai. When
it comes to your journey, Hyundai is thinking of every mile. Uh.

Speaker 3 (36:46):
Season two has been a bit of a challenge, but
thanks to my friends who are on the same bear
quest as me, Oh there is a framed a Teddy
Bear in your interview scene, I thank you, Smash.

Speaker 2 (37:03):
So I felt very relieved. Where's the Bear? We found it.

Speaker 3 (37:09):
It's gonna be a fun thing to continue to do
this for the series because I'm that kind of person
where I'm watching something and my mind can go on
little tangentile you know, yeah tracks, and it keeps me
focused because I'm trying to solve a mystery the entire
time I'm watching.

Speaker 1 (37:26):
Yeah, I just don't remember anytime I'm rewatching any of
these episodes until we're.

Speaker 2 (37:32):
Talking about it.

Speaker 1 (37:33):
And to ask Cana about the bear, I'm just glad
it's not me that has to look for it.

Speaker 2 (37:41):
I enjoy it so much man, being a virtual bear hunter,
I dig it. Thanks for helping us with our bear hunt. Hyundai.

Speaker 1 (38:03):
Do you have any other special memories shooting this episode,
any like Robbie memories or right.

Speaker 3 (38:11):
The scene that we do in the bar with Nelson
and Max and myself, it was just Nelson Franklin is.

Speaker 2 (38:23):
As everybody knows.

Speaker 3 (38:23):
I mean, he's been on the podcast now and they
know him from all of this his wonderful work, but
he's just like the most lovely person and not a
better feeling than when you look at the call sheet
and see who's coming into work that day and it's
just someone who's just gonna make the day better. And

the moments in between takes and in between scenes, you
know you're gonna have like a good chat and catch up,
and they just make you feel really good. So I
just I can see I can I know myself well
enough to see this like an ease in my body,
you know, to be like, yeah, my friend Nelson's here.

Speaker 2 (39:02):
So that was so nice.

Speaker 3 (39:04):
And it's just amazing how those people that we like
connected with and became such good friends with are the
ones I feel like that stayed in the series and
just kind of got woven.

Speaker 2 (39:16):
Into the New Girl world.

Speaker 3 (39:18):
Yeah, and he's you know, one of the first of those,
and which is great. And then yeah, and then trans
in this too, that character. Yeah, there's a like introduction
right here in the beginning I feel like of our
show where so many people stuck around and it was
the good ones.

Speaker 1 (39:34):
Yeah, it was. It was an introduction of a lot
of good characters. I mean, he was Nelson wasn't introduced,
but in this episode that was nice to have him.

Speaker 2 (39:45):
Yeah. Season two they kind of fit. They started to
build the world out season. Yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, which
was awesome.

Speaker 1 (39:54):
Okay, well we're gonna take a break, and after we
take a break, we're gonna do True American guys.

Speaker 2 (40:09):
Well good, Okay, we're back and it's time for True Americans.

Speaker 1 (40:24):
Regular listeners know that we've switched up the game a
little bit when we have a guest on the show,
so now we try to get the truth of their
experience on the show. We don't have a guest, but
we have Hannah and Me. In this episode, Nick visits
a spa for what is likely to be the first

time in his life. He enjoyed the soaking tub. What's
the best spa treatment for beginners?

Speaker 2 (40:51):
What do you think? Here's what I will say. I
don't know. I'm not a regular spa goer, but I
have had I had.

Speaker 3 (41:02):
A couple awkward incidents and have taught me that when
you go to a spa to be really specific.

Speaker 2 (41:13):
Yeah, because you want to be able to relax. Yeah.

Speaker 3 (41:16):
I remember someone got me a massage one of my
first ones or whatever, and I went and they were like.

Speaker 2 (41:23):
Would you like a male or a female? You know,
and You're like, I don't care.

Speaker 3 (41:28):
I don't care, Zoe, is what I said. I said,
I don't care, and in walked. And I can say
this because it's all the men in my family are
like this, a very uh hairy all the way down
to the knuckles man. And all I could feel on

my body the entire time was just a bear rug
being rugged all over.

Speaker 2 (41:56):
And I did not enjoy it.

Speaker 3 (42:00):
It wasn't for me for a lot of people, but
I think need to be exfoliated by my body hair.
Then I never turned to sit up really quickly to
be like I forgot. I had a meeting though, and
I did it in a way where I turned my
head out of the thing that you would rest your
face in and cricked my next heart that I need

a massage.

Speaker 2 (42:27):
So you learn your lasson just what will feel good
to you. Be specific.

Speaker 1 (42:34):
I think a good like first spaw treatment is a manicure.

Speaker 2 (42:40):
Nice a manicure.

Speaker 1 (42:42):
And the first thing like because pedicure it's ticulary.

Speaker 2 (42:46):
That's right, that's true.

Speaker 1 (42:47):
The first time I had a pedicure, I couldn't stop laughing.
I was like laughing hysterically and it was really embarrassing.

Speaker 2 (42:53):
And I'm like.

Speaker 1 (42:55):
And and uh so, so you need to ease into
pat and massage that sometimes they get up in your
bits and it's a little bit You're like, whoa, that's
kind a bit familiar, you know.

Speaker 2 (43:07):
So uh you know, I think first start with the manicure.
It's pretty safe.

Speaker 1 (43:13):
It's not tickling, they're not getting up in your bits,
and and uh you know, the only advice I have
is make sure you're going to a place that's like
extremely like clean and sanitary. That's right, because I was
like one time I was like at a at a
place and I watched the person like put like a

tool like for a manicure on the floor, and I
was like no, no, no uh floor, no no no no,
uh uh.

Speaker 2 (43:44):
No thank you.

Speaker 1 (43:45):

Speaker 2 (43:45):
I was like no thanks. Luckily they weren't doing me.

Speaker 1 (43:48):
But then I was like, I won't be going back
to this place because like no.

Speaker 2 (43:53):

Speaker 1 (43:53):
So anyway, go to a super clean place for a manicure,
and you will hopefully jo.

Speaker 3 (44:01):
And bring bring company if you go for a manager break,
someone you want to have a good old chat with.

Speaker 2 (44:07):
That's nice.

Speaker 1 (44:07):
I totally agree, because like you can't it's like you
can't use your hands to like, you know, scroll through
your emails or whatever and so or if you don't
have someone to chit chat, listen to this podcast.

Speaker 2 (44:21):
That's right, let us be.

Speaker 1 (44:24):
