Best character

I don’t have a particular favourite character in this episode, but Jess is pretty funny. Especially when she starts doing all of the weird voices with Paul. 

Also, Nick and Winston are so nice to Jess in this episode. They are such sweethearts. 

Favourite scene

There aren’t any particular standout scenes in this episode, well not that I could actually include here. I totally forgot this episode exists and it makes me cringe a bit.

Schmidt partying at the baby shower is definitely a highlight. He’s wearing about six huge plastic dummies around his neck and the moment when he pushes the pregnant woman into the pool shocks me every time. She was fine. Actually, she loved it. But honestly it’s so funny. 

Best quotes and one liners

JESS: Hey, tiger. You’re having sеx tonight. Don’t give me that look, just do it.

JESS: My main thing that I took away was, gosh, that young lady can really multitask.

SCHMIDT: You know what they say, “An afterbirth ain’t an afterbirth without some Schmidt up in there.”

JESS: (deep voice): I’m gonna split you like a log!

Final thoughts and fun facts

This is a pretty weird episode. There are some funny lines but all only work in the context of the scene and without posting the entire episode none of it makes sense. 

It’s also a bit more raunchy than I’d usually be talking about on here so it’s a bit of a strange episode to talk about in detail. Apologies that this is such a short review, there really isn’t much to say.
