* FridgeBrilliance: It's possible that Nick's still got law school debt hanging over him and that's why, despite bartending tips, he's so desperately short on and overly cautious about money.
** In one episode, Nick makes fun of Schmidt for getting his socks dry-cleaned. Later, it turns out Schmidt doesn't know how to do laundry.
** In "Chicago", it's revealed that Nick had to step up and take care of his family when his father wasn't around. This may explain his laziness and irresponsibility in his own life, only having himself to look out for has caused him to slack off.
** Why does Winston get to use [[spoiler: their first name]] instead of Schmidt? Nick was probably the one who decided, as their only friend in common, and [[spoiler: he knew Winston first.]]


* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments:
** Winston's flip-out with the napkins.
** SHE SENT ME A CACTUS!
** Nick Miller's love of "Cotton Eye Joe" and the fact he was fist pumping to it without even realizing.

-->'''Winston''': Look, um I really liked you, Daisy. You know, I wanted this to be a thing, but, uh I deserve better. ''(beat)'' And so does Ferguson. ''(takes the carrier and closes the door)'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny I GOT YO' CAT!]]

* [[HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Act]]: Creator/MeganFox was so funny as Reagan that some expressed that they would be fine with her being a permanent replacement for Jess, although seeing as how it was so heavily [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] that she was doing maternity cover for Zooey Deschanel, it was never really on the cards.

** Winston thinking Crispin Glover was the first person to die in the Boston Massacre is funny. However, knowing that the name Winston meant to say was Crispus Attucks makes it hilarious.

** If {{Tumblr}} is anything to go by, back in the beginning of the first season there already was a small fandom of people who ship Nick/Jess and a handful for Jess/Schmidt.

** Unfortunately, at the culmination of their relationship, Nick/Jess is picked up again. Even fans of the pairing admit it feels like a RecycledScript.

** Unfortunately, at the culmination of their relationship, just as Schmidt/Cece's relationship is definitively resolved, Nick/Jess is picked up again. Even fans of the pairing admit it feels like a RecycledScript.

Added DiffLines:

** While on a jealous tirade about Cece's photo-shoot riding a missile with a male model, Schmidt shouts about the arms race, saying, "Didn't you learn anything from Eisenhower?" This is a reference to Dwight D. Eisenhower's famous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eisenhower%27s_farewell_address farewell address]] in which he warned about the dangers of the growing military-industrial complex.

Added DiffLines:

* ArcFatigue:
** The Schmidt/Cece WillTheyOrWontThey RelationshipRevolvingDoor wore itself pretty damn thin until season 4 [[spoiler: when they finally get engaged]].

* ArcFatigue: It's season 4 and the Schmidt/Cece WillTheyOrWontThey is wearing pretty thin.


* HeReallyCanAct: Many viewers were shocked at how pleasantly surprised they were to find out MeganFox had a genuine talent for comedy as her stint as Reagan, to the point many expressed that they would be fine with her being a permanent replacement for Jess.
