New Girl: Clean Break

422. Clean Break

Aired May 5, 2015

As Coach packs to leave for New York, he tells the guys about his "clean break" method of ditching anything sentimental.

Quote from Coach

Winston: Coach, is that a bigger bag?
Coach: My old bag broke, so I got a wheelie. Same system. Still only essentials.
Winston: Is there a pan in there?
Coach: Nah. Nah, that's not a pan. That was just, uh, the sound of two track pants hitting together. You know, the buttons be like... ting... ti... But, um... Yeah, since I got this new suitcase, I might as well take a few more things. Just to fill up space. Know what I mean?
Winston: Just to fill up space.
Coach: Like, uh... take these glass grapes. Just to fill up space. Not that I want them.
Winston: Of course not.
Coach: And this blanket. For cushioning. [moans]
Winston: That smells nice, huh?
Coach: For cushioning, dude. These mystery novels. Take these. Not 'cause they're Jess's, just because... I'm an avid reader now. Stop smiling at me, man. I'm taking Nick's workout jams. 'Cause, uh... that one time I trained him, saw a lot of results.
Winston: [voice breaking] I remember. He was so fat.
Coach: [voice breaking] And I'm taking this remote. Because you always hit the info button by mistake.
Winston: No, no, it's not by mistake, Coach. I like to know more about the cast and crew.
Coach: Remote's gonna miss this TV so much.
Winston: Our TV is gonna miss that remote.
Coach: [sobs] Smells like all our fingers. [both sobbing]

Quote from Cece

Cece: Hey, um... so, I was, I was on the top of this mountain, and I finally got cell reception and there were, like, 20 voice mails from...
Schmidt: Are you in love with me? Because I'm in love with you. Deeply. But I assumed that you would never because I've... I've messed this up so many times. And you've made it very clear that you just want to be friends with me and I value that friendship so much. So if I'm ruining it by doing any of this, please, please stop me!
Cece: Schmidt. I'm in... I'm in love with you.
Schmidt: Really?
Cece: Mm-hmm. Yeah. Yeah, it's kind of stupid how much I'm in love with you. You should've seen how fast I came down that mountain. I mean, a lot of it was falling. Luckily, the ground just stopped me, but...

Quote from Schmidt

Schmidt: You remember this?
[flashback:]
Schmidt: Looks like it's finally just the two of us, huh?
Cece: Oh, God, you're about to say something stupid, aren't you?
Schmidt: Yeah. Girl, I'm-a marry you.
Cece: Jar.
[present:]
Schmidt: I know this might seem crazy, uh, and... probably a little bit impulsive, but it's not. Not for me. I've known since the minute that I met you. [gets down on one knee]
Cece: [gasps] Oh, my God.
Schmidt: Cecelia Parikh...
Cece: Oh, God, you're gonna say something stupid, aren't you?
Schmidt: Girl, will you marry me? [all gasp, scream, laugh] Would you please shut up?! I can't hear the answer!
Cece: Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

Quote from Winston

Winston: Oh, here we go. The Regis Philbin crepe pan. Come on, Coach. You can't give this away. Remember February 2014? Or, as we like to call it, Crepe History Month.
Coach: Crepe History Month.
Winston: [v.o.] It was a hot winter's night. We were drunk, but our judgment was on point.
[flashback:]
Regis Philbin: [on TV] You hear that sizzle? Let that sizzle speak!
Coach: Those pancakes are paper-thin.
Regis Philbin: There's only three left, so act fast. This crepe pan... is a knockout!
Winston: Coach, we got to act fast.
Coach: We got to act fast.
Winston: We got to act fast!
Coach: They're so thin! [both scream]

Quote from Schmidt

Schmidt: This five dollars belongs in the box. It's from the night that I first met Cece.
[flashback:]
Schmidt: Looks like it's finally just the two of us, huh?
Cece: Oh, God, you're about to say something stupid, aren't you?
Schmidt: Yeah. Girl...
[present:]
Schmidt: And then I said something stupid, and Cece made me put money in the douche bag jar.
Nick: What'd you say? You say you can flex your butt cheeks like pecs?
Coach: I bet you were all like, "You're making my dong go crazy!"
Winston: I bet he said something chauvinistic... ...that comes from insecurity but ultimately leads to something endearing.
Schmidt: You know, it doesn't matter what I said. Nonessential, right?
Coach: Exactly.
Schmidt: So, good-bye, Cece. May some poor street urchin with a perfect 34-D enjoy the sports bra that you left in my car.

Quote from Winston

Winston: [on the phone] Hey, yo, Ceec, what up, fam? It's your girl Winston, aka Winnie the Bish, aka-ak-aka Brown Lightning. Schmidt dropped Fawn like a bad habit, okay, so ain't nobody riding shotgun. So you better get on while the getting is good. You got it? [ends call, tosses Jess's phone]
Jess: I hate that you're so good at this.
Winston: I was so nervous.

Quote from Nick

Schmidt: Look at all this crap. Look at this. "Associated Strategies." "Ass Strat." What a joke. More like "Butt Strat." This place is total butt.
Nick: Hey, Jess, it's our sex mug.
Schmidt & Coach: What?
Jess: Oh... nothing. It's just a mug that Nick and I used for sex.
Coach: Oh, gross. Like, in it?
Schmidt: Ew! What?
Jess: No. No, we used it when we were dating. It was hard to find times to be intimate with everyone around, so we needed to come up with a code.
Nick: Just a way to let each other know we were aroused without arousing suspicion. That's wordplay. It's also a free writing lesson.

Quote from Nick

Jess: Obviously, I was the one who put the mug out, so I wanted to thank you for covering for me.
Nick: No problem.
Jess: Obviously, we're broken up, and it was... a moment of weakness.
Nick: I didn't even know you put it out; I didn't see it.
Jess: Oh!
Nick: No harm, no foul.
Jess: Well...
Nick: We didn't bone. No bone, no phone home.

Quote from Winston

Winston: Pop, pop, little bubble! Let that sizzle speak. It's time to flip. Care to do the honors?
Coach: Ah, sure, man. That'd be cool. [tosses spatula]
Winston: Rude.
Coach: Winston, you're not gonna trick me into taking the stupid pan. It stays behind... that's the system! Clean break.
Winston: You know what, fine, Coach, don't take it with you. Leave everything behind. Try not to remember anyone. We are nonessential. Message received. [Coach eyes the crepe] Nah, Coach, I don't think so. Because this crepe belongs in the belly of someone with a heart. [flips crepe onto plate]

Quote from Coach

Coach: Uh... I love you guys and, uh... I'm gonna miss you. Especially you, Jebecca. Aw.

Quote from Jess

Jess: There he is. Mr. New York. Mr. Broadway. Happy last day. I made you this.
Coach: Aw. It's a bunch of pictures of you.
Jess: Well, I had to take the necessary precautions, because the last time you left, you forgot who I was. You called me Jebecca.
Coach: Well, thank you so much, Jess. I really like it.
Jess: Cool.
Coach: Yeah. [puts the photo cube into a box marked "Stuff I'm Not Taking"]
Jess: Well, that's a kick in the shins.
Coach: Look, nothing personal, but, you know, I've moved a lot, so I have this system that I use. Duffel bag full of essentials only. And... one Jess cube.
Jess: You can't get rid of me.

Quote from Coach

Coach: The system works. Remember, essentials only. It's not just for packing; it's a way of life. You want to move forward, you got to get rid of the past. That means throw out all your junk... Emotional junk, actual junk. Got to make a clean break.
Schmidt: Clean break. That's right. You're blowing my mind right now, Coach.
Winston: Doesn't even mean anything.
Coach: Or does it mean everything?

Quote from Jess

Jess: I cannot believe you're all buying into Coach's crazy system. You guys have fun with your clean break. I'm gonna go to my room, and I guess I'll have to cancel the horse and carriage that I hired to take you to the airport.
Coach: May and I are driving.
Jess: You are now.

Quote from Nick

Coach: You guys sure you're up for this?
Schmidt: I am ready for this. I'm single again. I'm a new man. I'm leaving the past behind.
Nick: I want to get rid of my stuff, but all my stuff is really, really good, and I just can't get rid of it.
Coach: It's not, and you have to.
Schmidt: Everything you own is trash.
Coach: You're basically a hoarder.
Nick: Not true. Everything has meaning. Everything is connected to something else.

Quote from Nick

Coach: You need to be hard on yourself, okay? Now, take this box and fill it up.
Nick: Okay... Think I can do it?
Coach: Absolutely.
Nick: Okay. I'm gonna get hard and fix myself.
Coach: What?
Nick: That's not... No. That's... I didn't... No.

Quote from Coach

Winston: You got to take the Rege, at least for the memories.
Coach: The Rege, man.
Winston: The Rege!
Coach: You know, I can't get rid of the Rege.
Winston: Can't get rid of the...
Coach: Psych! I'm getting rid of the Rege. Memories are nonessential, all right? That's what makes the system work.

Quote from Coach

Nick: I found an ant farm full of candy wrappers. Is this essential?
Coach: Like, really, what do you think?
Nick: Hmm?
Coach: I need you to get harder, Nick. Can you get harder for me?
Nick: What?
Coach: Do you need me to get hard with you?
Nick: I feel like you're not... meaning to say what you're saying.
Coach: Talking about cleaning up.

Quote from Winston

Jess: When one of us left the mug on the entryway table... "Ass" out meant it was time to... Make love...
Nick: Bone. Yeah, make love.
Schmidt: We're getting rid of this thing... especially since you guys aren't using it anymore, right?
Jess & Nick: Right.
Winston: Wrong. I, Winston L'Andre Bishop, saw that very mug on this very hallway table just last week... "Ass" very out. Ooh...!
Jess: Winston, that mug hasn't seen any action in over a year. You're off your rocker.
Winston: If I were off my rocker, would I take a weekly selfie with my cat?
Nick: Oh, Winston.
Winston: You see, just last week, I took this selfie with... Wait, not that one. That's crazy. Not that one. I forgot I had this one. This selfie, in front of that table. Sex mug. Question is, who put the mug out?

Quote from Schmidt

Nick: All right, let's not play the "who put the mug out" game.
Jess: We should be focusing on Coach.
Coach: I saw you checking out Jess's butt last week.
Nick: No.
Winston: Yes, she was wearing the "look at me" skirt.
Schmidt: All right, well, let's not try to... My money's on Jess.
Jess: Wait.
Schmidt: She hasn't had sex since Ryan, and desperate times call for Nick Miller.

Quote from Nick

Nick: Hey! I put the mug out. Okay? And, actually, nothing happened, and I regret nothing. Now, I'm going to my room, and I'm considering throwing out my sunglasses.
