Was There Supposed To Be Love Triangle Between Schmidt and Nick Over Jess?

So I was re-watching clips of New Girl, the one where Schmidt tries to kiss Jess however she pushed him away. I also read the comments they were saying things like, "I wish they kept the triangle idea," or "how different would it be if they kept the love triangle idea."

Does anyone know if this is actually true?

Heard someone say "upmost" today...

Except they actually did mean "the most up," as in "the furthest upstage" as we were arranging set dressing for a show. It made me laugh but I didn't want to have to explain the joke.

Two Schmidt’s

I searched to see if this had been brought up and I haven’t seen anything about it but after numerous rewatches of this show the one thing that always sticks out is the two Schmidt’s in the episode backslide. Schmidt spends all day hanging out in the apartment with Winston while also taking the day to spend time with Cece’s grandma and it sticks out like a sore thumb. Has anyone else noticed this?

S1-Ep4: “Country’s Broke. Betty White’s Back.”

This show originally aired from 2011-2018.

When Winston comes home from Latvia, he spends the entire episode catching up on the “chit chat” in the US so he could go on interviews.

If Winnie was catching up on current culture, what would he be watching?

“David after Dentist” was hilarious at the time. “Double Rainbow” guy was on commercials and stuff.

…. Everything Winnie watches in that episode were culturally relevant and hilarious to overhear in the background of a sitcom.

How would he be re-acclimating by today’s standards? That episode aired like, 12 or 13 years ago. 🤷‍♀️

I don't get the Jess hate

like i know she can be annoying and too much but too me she seems like a genuinely nice person and one of the funniest characters on the show. I've seen people get mad that she gets in the way of some of the relationship between the guys or her storylines are the worst but she's the main character she's just a little quirky. Also I hate Reagan I'm sorry I just find her insufferable, there's no chemistry with any of the cast and the way she delivers lines is dead. Definitely one of Megan Fox's worst performances

Silent moments.

Obviously the show is scripted perfection, but let's chat about some of the amazing facial expressions a bit. Nick's face when Winston reveals that Cece and Schmidt are sleeping together. Or the crazy eyes he gets when making "The Sauce"? My heart always breaks when Shavrang proposes to Cece and the camera pans to Schmidt who is utterly defeated. What are some of your favorites?

“Being brown, you have the wisdom of 1,000 white women.”

(wasn’t sure what to tag this)

On my nth rewatch and I think this episode (S2E3 “Fluffer”) is one of the funniest. What are your favourites?

A lot of mine are Schmidt’s:

“… I took Winston with me to prove that I can be friends with Black people— even oddly-shaped ones.”

“Nitpicking turns me off. You’re all horribly unattractive to me now. Tugg Romney out!”

Does Jess have iconic lines?

I know that the boys have their share of iconic/funny lines (“hey shawty what that thang do!”/“I’m not convinced I know how to read I’ve just memorized a lot of words”/“youths!!!”) but does Jess have any iconic lines like them? I honestly can’t think of any for her. Or Cece. Or coach.

Nick was kinda a good bf

I’m currently rewatching the show and before Jess & Nick’s first breakup, Nick was a good boyfriend. I see him going out of his way to make Jess happy. Constantly putting her first and actually going out of his way to make sure she has an easy time at work, with Coach etc. I really enjoyed watching their relationship before Reagan

Good Nick/Jess Episodes after S3?

I think at this point everybody knows how badly the writers handled the Nick/Jess break up, and how out of the blue it was.

What bothered me the most, however, was how they just went back to „best friends“ immediately, maybe with the cruise episode as a slight exception. It just… felt so wrong. Nick was devastated when Caroline dumped him, even 6 months later he tried to get back together with her. But Jess/Nick seem very unbothered.

Anyway, it makes me low-key dislike the other seasons after season 3, especially because there is no build up to the S6 finale. I know it’s kind of stubborn to judge the other seasons bc of this detail, but it just doesn’t feel right to me.

However, I want to watch some episodes from S4-6 again, because I love the other characters and their dynamic… Any ideas for episodes that I might like?

Bachelorette Party and First Date (s2 e21 and e22) switched on Hulu?

Just doing a rewatch and stalking on IMDb and noticed IMDb has Bachelorette Party listed as e22 and First Date listed as e21, while Hulu has them swapped. On Hulu it also says the release dates, and First Date was 4/4/2013 and Bachelorette Party was 4/9/2013. So IMDb is correct. Does anyone know why they’re swapped on Hulu despite the release dates?

An underappreciated Schmidt moment.

Schmidt has some lovely, sweet moments (please share your favorite below!). But one of my favorites is one I don't see talked about a lot!

In 5.21, Schmidt's mom and her "friend" Susan (obviously longterm partner, but Schmidt isn't super comfortable with it) are staying at the loft before the wedding. At the end of the episode, they get engaged.

When Schmidt gives a little toast and says "Susan, you're family now. So, to my Mom... and my Mom," the look in his mom and Susan's faces are just so wholesome. It's such a small moment of growth and acceptance, I just love it.

Spin off idea- New Dad

A continuation of Nick, Schmidt, and Winston starting their lives as parents. I have so many ideas.

Would you watch New Girl with your kids around?

How old would they have to be?

My parents would watch murder procedurals when I was in the room reading or playing with my toys. But times are different now....

That said, my kids are funny and I wish I could share it with them (they're all 9 and under).

Any Big Bang fans?

What characters do you think would get along? I think Winston and Raj would be the sweetest duo. Jess would probably get along with everyone (except maybe Howard), but definitely get on Sheldon’s nerves (and Penny’s at first). I can see Nick and Penny broing out a lot- I think they’d be good buds. I also think Penny would gel well with all the guys. Cece, Bernadette, and Ally would be absolute besties + I think all the girls would mesh well. I can also see Schmidt and Sheldon understanding each other.

Why do I dislike Jess so much?

I'm on my 4th run, watching S01 E11 Jess and Julia(Nicks gf). I found her sweetness too toxic? The only reason I am watch this tv show for the 4th time is for others. I noticed her "people pleasing" personality, and I guess that ticks me off? I think this is one of the reason why I didn't like her, because even I have that people pleasing behaviour whenever I meet someone new, and I don't like it about myself. Anywayyy just wanted to see if anyone else her Jess's over sweet behaviour odd and annoying?
