I will be putting my de-humidifyer and my towel in my room. Where nothing ever gets wet.

I assume that was intended, but I took that in a very dirty way

Nick's argument for not washing a towel at the end killed me.

Yeah, that button hook at the end of the episode slayed me.

Julia: “Are you done?”

Jess: “I am almost done.”
“I'm about to go and pay this $800 fine, and my checks have baby farm animals on them, bitch! “

at Schmidt finding the tampon in his apron.

Kind of a low-key episode. Schmidt continues to be comedy gold - his Irish walking cape must have cost him a few bucks in the Douchebag Jar.

The towel is supposed to wash you!

I imagine they just wanted another woman to be around in the apartment to make Julia more uncomfortable, so they just "boomed" that person in. Seems like there was enough forced background info to support that.

Enjoyed this ep, shows really coming into its own.

I very rarely laugh as much as I do when watching this show and Archer. Scmidt consistently kills me, and the end sequence had me crying with laughter.

I think they're doing them out of order. I mean this show went to great lengths to explain swapping in Winston (and his booty call ought to have been brought in a little more cleanly too - it was like we were supposed to have already met HER too). This IS FOX after all so the episode shaffle is very likely.

I liked the line about his "little towel"..

"Can someone hand me my towel in in my room. The big towel not the little one, DO NOT TOUCH the little one!!"

I hardly ever laugh out loud when I'm watching a comedy show by myself, but that bit at the end had me rolling.

This was my favorite ep of the run so far, which is surprising because I feel like the Winston storyline (while adding a wrinkle to his character) wasn't exactly all that funny. But the other stuff? So so good.

Schmidt pronunciation of that hair cair stuff (chutaney something) was so great.

Not sure why I deleted this one.

Easily one of the series best eps.

Will have to dig it out of Tivo's trash bin.

Probably the best episode they've done so far.

The show is being aired out of production order, but I don't know know if that is why the new friend appeared out of nowhere.

It's possible the show is being aired in the intended order, with Justin Long episodes bunched together and now the Lizzy Caplan episodes doing the same thing. Maybe they filmed the episodes to work around their schedules, who knows?

I've enjoyed it from the get go but this is still my pick for most improved show this season.

This episode killed me. Schmidt's sex rant is the 2nd funniest thing for me this TV season, beaten only by the Barney/Lily negotiation at that Benihana-type place in the 3rd episode of HIMYM earlier this season. I didn't delete it from the DVR.

Ditto. It's like Happy Endings all over again. Too bad Man Up didn't make the cut.

I agree. I hated the first couple of eps, but it is definitely getting better. Everyone had a pretty good storyline. I too was trying to remember if we had met the lesbian friend before this ep.

Loved Jess's "and my checks have baby animals on them, bitch!" line.

And just about everything Schmidt said was gold. "It's right next to my Irish Walking Cape".

I can't believe that Irish Walking Capes are real. I googled it and there they were. It's easy to see Schmidt wearing one.
