This week’s New Girl saw the return of Jess’s friend Sadie and her partner Melissa, along with a rather “informative” discussion on female reproduction and egg count statistics. This soon piqued the concern of Jess, who spent the better part of her storyline obsessing over her fertility.
This might just be one of those things I don’t really get because I’m a guy, but I personally didn’t find this part of the episode particularly interesting. Much like Nick comparing Jess’s children to microwaved burritos, I’d be put in a “tough spot” to call out which one is more important; although, I did enjoy Schmidt and Winston’s unwarranted offering of sperm. But beyond the few clever uses of wordplay, the only real takeaway from this arc was Cece’s realization that her baby makin’ days were numbered. While the setup here was pretty predictable, this did at least put a clock on Cece and Robbie, and will likely serve as a factor in their eventual breakup.
So far, all of this – especially the scene where Sadie starts to deliver Cece’s test results, and stops to kick Jess out of the room – seems like a pretty good argument for not socializing with your ob-gyn, But there’s also an upside to hanging out with someone who has a medical degree in ladyparts, at least if you’re a guy who’s having a hard time satisfying his boss in bed. I loved how Schmidt was totally unfazed when Sadie told him she could only give him sex advice if he came to her as a patient. A $40 co-pay is a small price for a consultation with a va-genius. Especially if there are stirrups involved.
Schmidt, see, is in a “real life sex pickle.” (That also happens to be the name of the world’s worst funk band.) He knows he’s good in bed, but his Mars Rover impersonation seems to do nothing for Emma, his kinky superior. In Sadie’s office, he lays out his methods: Losing Nemo, collecting the Oscar, getting everybody into the sharing circle, meeting the troll and answering his riddles three. Sadie, whose baby hormones are less gay than she is, proclaims that Schmidt is the true va-genius.
