%%* * CringeComedy: %%** Everyone but Jess knows she should be embarrassed. %%** Schmidt ** Schmidt's attempts at hitting on Cece can be fairly painful in the first season. Despite the fact that everyone (Cece included) has told him he has no shot, his awkward-yet-confident attempts to watch. %%** woo her are pure cringe as while he has zero shame about the things coming out of his mouth, the audience i acutely aware of the awkwardness. ** Jess and Paul in the bedroom. Cringe Comedy, personified. %%** A drunk Schmidt pushing his very pregnant boss into a pool. Granted she turned out fine Two awkward, reserved people trying to seem sexually open and liked it, but with that large a belly, you can't help but cringe. %%** adventurous and failing miserably. ** "The Landlord." Just "The Landlord." %%** " Nick and Jess are in the throes of WillTheyOrWontThey, and they get thrust into a situation where they're basically playing chicken about having ThreeWaySex with their creepy landlord just to prove a point. Neither of them wants to be there, and they just keep DiggingThemselvesDeeper. ** Jess replacing Cece at the car show in ''Models''. %%** ''Models''. Jess can barely stand in her heels, and the audience is treated to an extended sequence of her trying to show off a car on a spinning platform that culminates in her accidentally locking herself in, somehow. All the while a poor sales rep is trying to downplay Jess' EpicFail at being a HoodOrnamentHottie. ** After a sperm donation plan falls through, Bob and Carol, Nick's cousin and his wife, ask Nick to help impregnate Carol, Carol by having sex with her. Already an awkward premise, but it doesn't reach the apex of cringe until they try to do the act. Nick is awkward when it comes to sexual acts in general, and this time he's basically to have browbeaten into having sex with his cousin's wife. His attempts to go through with it While his cousin is in the room. And [[HeterosexualLifePartner Schmidt]]. Who are made of this especially with Bob and Schmidt standing right beside them.both quite vocal.

None of these explain the use of the Cringe Comedy trope. They all simply assert that it happens. If you can't explain it, it's not an example.

* GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave: Jess' mom. Lampshaded by Nick:** Nick fakes this in his role as Schmidt's wingman in "Sister", only for the grandma in question to lustily reciprocate.

* GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave: Jess' mom. Lampshaded by Nick:** To ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'', another single-camera sitcom about five somewhat-hairbrained neurotics who have a habit of lapsing into five-way, overlapping shouting matches as their personal issues explode in their faces. Given all the shared crew such as Luvh Rakhe, Rob Rosell, and the Chernin family, surely not a coincidence.
