* {{Flanderization}}: Went from being the most normal and laid-back character in season 1, to a bit on the awkward side in season 2 and eventually full-blown crazy in season 3.

* {{Flanderization}}: Went from being the most normal and laid-back character in season 1, to a bit on the awkward side in season 2 and eventually full-blown crazy in season 3. His decision to become a cop has the effect of making him become more serious and by the time he's become one, he's still eccentric but no longer nuts.



* FriendToAllChildren: When Jess agrees to bring a group of troubled kids into their home after school, it initially appears that this will create a lot of trouble... until he shows up, strikes a rapport with the kids, and begins training them to play bells for a concert in the park (ItMakesSenseInContext).

** Averted in season 5, where Nick goes on patrol with him and his partner, and we see that he's a good cop.



--->'''Winston''': Well, there is no difference. That's why I have to announce it.

Added DiffLines:

** He later develops "cop face" and "friend face", depending on whether he's giving personal advice as a friend or legal advice as a cop.
--->'''Jess''': Honestly, I can't tell the difference.
--->'''Winston''': Well, there is no difference. That's why I have to announce it.

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: Schmidt disapproves of Nick picking up all his deliveries because he himself buys everything local, "except, of course, for clothing and produce, medication, water, seasoning, meat."

* HelloNurse: She's a model. And the boys react accordingly, particularly Schmidt, who goes to ridiculous (and ill-planned) lengths to seduce her.

* HelloNurse: She's a model. And the boys react accordingly, particularly Schmidt, who goes to ridiculous (and ill-planned) lengths to seduce her. Downplayed when she gives up modelling and goes to work as a bartender; her dream job is actually TV newscaster and she seems to have a talent for it.



* MsFanservice: Because Cece's a model, we often get to see her in skimpy dresses, lingerie, bikinis, etc. Lampshaded in one episode when Schmidt tells her she looks like she's trying to distract Film/JamesBond at a baccarat table.

Downplayed after she gives up modelling, and starts spending more time in casual clothes that cover her up.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSlacker: It only emerges in Season 5 when she comes to live in the loft, but she is ''phenomenally'' untidy and also has a peculiarly loud and disgusting way of blowing her nose. Justified because, as Nick points out, she's so beautiful that people have tidied up after her for her whole life.

Added DiffLines:

* OpenMouthInsertFoot: In front of her ex-boyfriend and his current girlfriend, no less.
-->'''Sam''': I would love to explore all of this with you, but I have a circumcision to perform.

* ButtMonkey: It seems the writers aren't happy until they can put Nick through at least one painfully humiliating and unhappy experience per episode. In addition, his life has just plain sucked up to this point. It's almost deconstructed as we see that his bad luck has turned him into a psychological wreck almost incapable of happiness.

* {{Adorkable}}: And ''how''!

to:

* {{Adorkable}}: And ''how''!''how''! She does become considerably more responsible as the show goes on, however.



* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Well, she ''is'' played by Creator/ZooeyDeschanel, after all, and she's certainly livening up soulless, sheltered, emotionless Nick. Ultimately deconstructs the trope as she's the center of the show, she's given her own characterization, and she's just as much of a mess as the guys.

to:

* AloofDarkHairedGirlAloofDarkHairedGirl: To begin with. Not so much,



** Justified later with her completely unimpressed response to Nick's admittedly ridiculous attempts to physically intimidate her.



* DeadpanSnarker: When she's angry.
-->'''Nick''': If you weren't a girl...
-->'''Cece''': Uh-huh?
-->'''Nick''': I'd karate chop you in the mouth.
-->'''Cece''': You would get winded just trying to ball your fist up, dough-boy.[[note]]This turns out to be true: Nick starts waving his fists in Cece's direction and the sheer effort makes him out of breath.[[/note]]

to:

* FriendsWithBenefits: With Schmidt.Schmidt, at least to begin with. [[spoiler: As of the end of season four, they are engaged.]]

* WomenAreWiser WomenAreWiser: Maybe, but not necessarily better at giving advice to Winston.
