New Girl - Jess Quote #1237

Quote from Jess in Young Adult

Schmidt: I need it. I have a big day at work today.
Jess: I need it more. I have to bake muffins before work.
Schmidt: What? Why?
Jess: 'Cause it's for my "Lunch With Your Princi-Pal" campaign. See, being principal's great, but unlike being vice principal, now the buck stops with me. I'm "the Man" now, and all the kids can just smell "the Man" all over me. That sounded really weird. All I'm saying is suddenly I have no relationship with the kids. I'm really counting on these muffins to humanize me.

Quote from Nick

Nick: I'm using magnetic words to break through my writer's block, and it's not working. I've already folded all my shirts and masturbated six times, and I'm running out of things to do. I'm just in a real bind. You see, The Pepperwood Chronicles sold over 30 copies, Jess.
Jess: So, what, we're complaining about good things now?
Nick: It's just, my audience is gonna be clamoring for a sequel, and I can't leave those stevedores, those-those tugboat workers, those lighthouse keepers empty-handed.
Jess: You think that your audience is entirely made of, like...
Nick: Blue-collar nautical workers on the coastline of Maine. I don't think that, Jess, I know that.

Quote from Nick

Jess: That said... thanks for putting them up to it.
Nick: Jess, I don't know what you're talking about.
Jess: "Upmost"? There's only one person I know that says "upmost." It's "utmost."
Nick: "Utmost"?
Jess: "Utmost."
Nick: [chuckles] Agree to disagree. But the good news is my writer's block is gone, and that is thanks to you. You always come through for me, Jess, to the upmost.
Jess: I assure you, it's "utmost."
Nick: What's an "ut"? Come on, you're a writer. It's "up." Up to the most. Not ut to the most. I assure you.
Jess: Okay, sweetie.
Nick: You didn't come in here and say, "Thanks for putting them ut to it." I would've laughed you out of here. What is an "ut"?!

Quote from Winston

Winston: Furguson is miserable.
Jess: So you're saying that this is a different emotion than we've seen for the past three years?
Winston: A father knows. He misses Gil. It'd be wrong for me to take away a piece of his heart. I mean, I already took away his testicles.

Quote from The Hike

Jess: We're lost. Why did you let me chase a waterfall? You know what TLC says.

Quote from Dice

Schmidt: Dice is a dating app.
Jess: Dating app.
Schmidt: It's not for you.
Jess: What? Schmidty. Come on. I've Internet dated before. You send an e-mail, you get excited, you wait, you get an e-mail back.
Schmidt: You are just describing e-mailing.

Quote from Eggs

Jess: Guess what I'm worried about? This sound. You know what that sound is? It's the sound of an empty uterus. I don't need test results to tell me that it is The Grapes of Wrath in there. It is 1930s Dust Bowl in there, Schmidt. And they're all walking with limps.
