Prepare to feel quite old. Tuesday's episode of New Girl finds the loft gang trying to solve their cellphone reception issue by getting a landline — and not really knowing what to do with it.

"We find out the only place you get reception in the loft is over Nick's bed," says episode writer Rob Rosell in this behind-the-scenes video. "Jess has the crazy idea to get what is revealed to be a landline phone."

Confusion ensues. And because all but Nick (Jake Johnson) have day jobs, he decides to spend his afternoon taking messages for his roommates. That includes grilling Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) on the awkward details of their respective dating lives.
