Re-Watch Review: New Girl S1-EP22

Episode synopsis

S1 EP22 – Tomatoes: Cece does not want to admit she cares for Schmidt, so she tells him to date her gorgeous model roommate. He does, but then she gets jealous. Jess meets Russell’s first wife and does not think she matches up to Ouli who seems so exciting.


Zooey Deschanel…Jess Day

Jake Johnson…Nick Miller

Max Greenfield…Schmidt

Lamorne Morris…Winston Bishop

Hannah Simone…Cece Parekh

Jeanne Tripplehorn…Ouli

Mary Elizabeth Ellis…Caroline

Kali Hawk…Shelby

Dermot Mulroney…Russell Shiller

Rebecca Reid…Nadia

Best character

Nick looking after his tomatoes are way too cute. It’s so nice to see him so passionate about something. Also, Jake Johnson is one of the absolute best comedy actors. No doubt about it.

Best quotes and one liners

NICK: Jess… you’re dating the man that I could see myself growing old with. Russell, you got a great-looking face. Your jawline could cut glass. Hold on tight, sister. Don’t let that one slip away.

SCHMIDT: Don’t tap-dance at dinner. 

JESS: Do you really think I would tap-dance at dinner? 

NICK: Yes. I’m hiding your tap shoes, Jess.

NICK: No! No! Get out of here, birds! Please get out of here, you sky rats! Go back to Hell, where you belong! Leave me and my plants alone!

JESS: I have the fastest butt in the land.

Best musical moment

Final thoughts and fun facts

This episode, I think, is the first time you see Jess get jealous over Nick being with another woman. Their chemistry in their ‘fight’ scene is off the charts.
