    A preposterous but funny episode. The manically competent Chef Schmidt was my favorite part.

    I could not stop laughing once Schmidt covered Nick with all the freezer food while he was sleeping. Funny episode.

    Did we know Schmidt came from money?


    Enjoyed the episode very much.

    Just one of those comedies tonight that killed me for it's cringe-inducing humor.. the entire moment "it was like a mountain rescue" "are you OK" "are you OK" I about choked on the food I had.

    Painfully funny at times.


    Desparately awful at others.


    Not my favorite episode, but it had some scenes. And I like earnest dorkiness between Zoe and Justin.

    Oh man, I don't think I can watch It's a Wonderful Life this year


    Eva Amurri would be almost 6' with heels!

    Yeah, I looked up Eva's height, she's listed as being 5'10" tall!!! I just never thought she was that tall, but with Schmidt, it was pretty evident. She's lost a bit of weight, and it shows in her face because I almost didn't recognize her in the office scenes.

    Knowing Justin Long was only slated for three episodes, the writing was pretty much on the wall for Jess's new relationship. Seeing the curmudgeonly Nick caught in the middle was pretty perfect.


    But I do like the slow, continental drift of Cece and Schmidt coming together.

    CeCe's reaction to Schmidt's perfume made me LOL, as well as subsequent references to how it smelled.

    Yeah, the scent smelling awful was a nice twist on the sweet moment. Of course it makes no sense if you think about it (so don't those make your own perfume things involve some kind of smelling as you go?), but the gag (haha) overruled the logic.

    I could see Schmidt overconfident in his ingredient choices for his perfume concoction. My mom seldom samples the food she served us when I was growing up, and sometimes she left out crucial ingredients and I was left with a puke-ridden face upon such samplings.

    Not really, they are "smell as you go" but all it takes is for one interaction to go bad.. or, when combined with body heat to start smelling bad; or to mix with something else she's wearing.


    It's the Sweet Cole Slaw effect as I call it. It has a very sweet smell to it, one taste and it's sharp tart taste is enough to make me hurl!

    Schmidt's 29th birthday bus episode was pretty good. And I hope Lizzy Caplan sticks around.

    I like a skinny girl but Lizzy Caplan was so skinny that I didn't recognize her at first.

    I just realized I made a pun on my Lizzy Caplan sighting. I liked her build/weight when she was on True Blood 2 seasons ago.

    Last night's episode slayed me. Schmidt was on a roll. They introduced a lesbo gyno character without much fanfare.
