'New Girl' Writer Talks Rekindling Jess and Schmidt's Friendship (Video)
Episode scribe Ryan Koh talks about forcing the duo to bond after dealing their relationship such a blow earlier in the season.
While the fallout of Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece's (Hannah Simone) second untimely breakup continues to unfold on New Girl, one casualty of his two-timing may be on the mend.
Tuesday's episode features Jess (Zooey Deschanel) going into damage control mode when Cece's date with Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) sends Schmidt into a tailspin.
"She's still mad at him for cheating on her best friend, and really Nick (Jake Johnson) is the only one who can handle him when he's in such a weird state," says episode scribe Ryan Koh in the latest clip from the Fox comedy's writers. "It [becomes] more about getting Schmidt to move on."
Watch the video below, which also includes Jess hitting Schmidt with a car. "Longest Night Ever" premieres Nov. 19 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
