It’s Nick and Schmidt’s ten year anniversary of living together, and Cece get’s proposed to, sort of.
Written by Mia Loiselle
Jess and Cece come to the conclusion that Jess needs to get a “different mouth on her mouth” to erase the weirdness of her and Nick locking lips. Unfortunately, she ends up coming to the conclusion that the single guys she’s meeting are super odd. As the gang is hanging out at Nick’s bar, Winston walks in with a handsome and famous football player, Jax McTavish. Jess asks Winston to introduce her, and the guys burst out laughing, offended, she insists, and walks over on her own. She starts flirting with Jax, and Nick watches somewhat forlornly.
Schmidt tries to involve Nick in the planning of their anniversary party and Nick freezes as usual. Cece’s boyfriend proposes to her in an offhand way, and she starts to reconsider the whole arranged marriage thing. Schmidt has rented out an entire park for the party, an elegant looking affair, probably involving cloth napkins.
Jess and Winston arrive, Winston is upset that she has invited Jax, and tries to dissuade her from going after him. Nick buys a port o’ potty, as Schmidt asked him to, but in true Nick fashion, it’s hideous. Luckily Schmidt has gone ahead and rented his own luxurious one, which offends Nick.
Jess interrupts Jax and Winston and starts a flirt game of football with Jax. Winston get’s more and more jealous, just as he gets more and more tackles. Nick tries to get people to use his port o’ potty, with no luck, as it looks like something out of Saw. Jess offers to use it out of pity, but realizes it’s so much worse than it looks.
Jax tells Jess he likes her a lot as they toss the football back and forth, and starts crying as he admits this. She realizes that he may be a little too willing to talk about his feelings. Nick confronts Schmidt about feeling like Schmidt thinking he's better than Nick, and Schmidt starts crying. Jess goes and finds Jax and tells him it’s okay that he opened up to her. They almost kiss but just in time it get’s interrupted by Cece’s boyfriend/fiancé who proposes to her for real on stage “do you want to do this thing?” she says yes. He steals Schmidt’s big night, and Schmidt couldn’t be more upset. Jax runs up on stage, and tells Jess that he’s in love with her and wants to marry her one day. Needless to say, Jess is supremely freaked out. Nick runs after Schmidt and the two of them end up making up and drinking in a grounded hot air balloon where Jess and Winston join them.
Funniest Quote: Schmidt “I can’t talk right now. I’m writing a strongly worded email to my florist.”
