All the stuff with Schmidt and the douchebag jar had me

Loved the banter between Nick and his girlfriend, and her slugging the asshole.

Wasn't there a scene in the commercial/preview where Rachael Harris bumps into someone and they drop a cake shaped like boobs? There was also a scene where Nick ran half naked into the ocean and Schmidt makes comment about how he should lose five to seven pounds.

Lizzy Caplan seems like a natural fit for this show.

Least funny episode of the season...until the montage at the end. Hilarious.

Yeah, I didn't get that. He was actually being vulnerable for the first time I can remember.

I was expecting the worst. Didn't think leaning into her was the worst thing ever.

Lizzy Caplan made up for the loss of CeCe, as did the jar.

Lizzy Caplan made the episode for me. I didn't even notice Cece was gone, but I still want her to come back.

$50 for leaning in seems a little messed up though. "Never Walk Alone." lol

The dude that was with Lizzy should have been the one putting money in the jar. Ashamed of damn near his whole life.
