'New Girl' Writer Talks Rekindling Jess and Schmidt's Friendship (Video)
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.
