What They Said: Favorite Quotes from New Girl “Nerd” (+ Guest Star Goodness)
Before we get to our favorite quotes from New Girl, let’s talk about all the guest star goodness that went down in “Nerd.” There were greatÂ characters from seasons past plus a fresh new batch.Â
The New Girl Alums
Curtis Armstrong (Principal Foster) â€“ He appeared during season two and he was back as Jessâ€™ boss. Armstrong is probably best known as Booger from the Revenge of the Nerd movies. One of his other claim to fame roles as playing Burt Viola on Moonlighting. Heâ€™s been in a million things over the years (The Closer, Scandal, CSI) but most recently, heâ€™s been playing the angel Metatron on the CWâ€™s Supernatural. I assume he will be in the upcoming season nine that debuts on Tuesday, Oct. 8.
Eva Amurri Martino (Beth) â€“ Beth is Schmidtâ€™s jealous and bitchy co-worker who helped complicate his life in this episode. Martino was Jackie on Showtimeâ€™s Californication and recently did a couple episodes of The Mindy Project.
Merritt Wever (Elizabeth): Iâ€™m just bringing her up because after giving the best speech ever earlier this week, we can now call Wever an Emmy winner for her role on Nurse Jackie. Her nine-second or so acceptance speech was glorious. Wever also played one of Will’s sisters on The Good Wife.
Brenda Song (Daisy): Much like Wever, Song was on last season. I really like Daisy and Winston. Actually, I love Daisy and Winston. But the actress is now appearing on one of FOXâ€™s other comedies â€“ Dads. I hope one day (soon), sheâ€™ll be back on New Girl in some capacity.
The Mean Girl Teacher Click
-There were three teachers at Jessâ€™ school that were the cool click. The ones that made her feel like a nerd just like she was in high school. It just reminds me that no matter how old you get. No matter where you work or play or whatever. Sometimes you can never get away from that high school vibe. Anyway, the three actors at the center of this click are all memorable faces:
Angela Kinsey (Rose): Kinseyâ€™s best known as Angela from NBCâ€™s late great comedy The Office.
Mark Proksch (Dan): Heâ€™s also from The Office. He played Nate.
Dreama Walker (Molly): She was June on one of favorite shows of last season: Donâ€™t Trust the B in Apartment 23. Itâ€™s funny because in this particular episode of New Girl, they played the theme to Dawsonâ€™s CreekÂ (Paula Cole’s “I Dont Want to Wait”) and I couldnâ€™t help think of Donâ€™t Trust the B because Dawson himself â€“ James Van Der Beek â€“ was on that show and June was obsessed with Dawsonâ€™s Creek. Walker has also been in The Good Wife and I believe is returning to that show this upcoming season which starts Sunday Sept. 29 on CBS.
What They Said: New Girl â€œNerdâ€
Cece: â€œWhoâ€™s that?â€
Schmidt: â€œThatâ€™s my doctor. Dr. Cover. Dr. Wyland Cover. Heâ€™s my oncologist. Heâ€™s an oncologist.â€
Winston: â€œHey, you guys know anything about cats? You know Iâ€™m trying to score points with Daisy so I promised to watch her cat tonight.â€
Schmidt: â€œThey carry disease. Theyâ€™re obsessed with my nipples and they are unwelcome in this loft.â€
Nick: â€œDo you look okay? Hell, yeah. I wanna put it on you.â€
Jess: â€œOn? Put it on me?â€
Nick: â€œUh, yeah, on. I stand by that.â€
Nick: â€œLeave it to me. Iâ€™ll fix it. Youâ€™re Nick Millerâ€™s girl now. Youâ€™re my old lady.
Nick: â€œWhatever you need â€“ you got it.â€
Jess: â€œWhy are you talking like a James Taylor song?â€
Schmidt: â€œYou know Iâ€™ve never actually seen you this happy. Who are you?
Nick: â€œI donâ€™t know.â€
Schmidt: â€œIâ€™ve never seen you smile. Ever. This is the first time. Itâ€™s not bad. I mean, itâ€™s not great. Butâ€¦â€
Nick: â€œSomewhere right in the middle.â€
Winston: â€œSo Iâ€™m just gonna go over there and Iâ€™m gonna tell Daisy, â€˜Listen, my heart is a two-man bike and I want you in the rear. What do you think?â€
Nick: â€œWinston, donâ€™t say that! You want her in theâ€¦You can say the rear but you donâ€™t want her in your rear.â€
Schmidt: â€œNo. Donâ€™t say the rear — anytime.â€
Winston: â€œYou guys are just jealous. You guys are just trying to steal my swag.â€
Schmidt: â€œI wouldnâ€™t even know how to begin to steal a swag.â€
Jess (to Nick): â€œThatâ€™s an amazing move, sex partner.â€
Schmidt: â€œWith the promotion, I got a new office. So I donâ€™t have to look at Bethanyâ€™s mismanaged eyebrows all day. Do you like it? Itâ€™s the perfect two-thirds replica of Don Draperâ€™s office from Mad Men. And youâ€™re my sexy Peggy.â€
Schmidt: â€œDo I feel bad about lying to them? Yes. Iâ€™m a Sagittarius.â€
Winston: â€œAnd I want us to be exclusive. Just you and me in the rear.â€
(A drunk) Jess: â€œSchools are for fools!â€ â€œSometimes firemen are women.â€
Nick: â€œYeah they are.â€
Schmidt: â€œYou canâ€™t come up with me to the party tonight. They just told me that itâ€™s employees only. No Sig-Oths.â€
Cece: â€œJust say significant others.â€
Schmidt: â€œWell maybe you have that kind of time but Iâ€™m on a tight schedj.â€
Winston: â€œBreak up with Daisy. Thatâ€™s an option. I was thinking like Iâ€™ll kill her cat.â€
Jess: â€œIf I met you in high school you never would have even noticed me.â€
Winston: â€œThatâ€™s just because I didnâ€™t go to class. I wouldnâ€™t have seen you.â€
Winston: â€œI got your cat!â€
Nick: â€œHey, I just wanna say. I would have noticed you.â€
New Girl airs Tuesdays on FOX at 9/8c.
