Nick: How's everything with your sister?
Joan Day: I mean, she was caught stealing, they called the cops, it's a mess.

Winston: Hey, Jess has a sister?
Nick: Yeah, I've never met her.
Joan Day: I need you to go to the jail, pick her up and put her on a plane home.
Jess: Oh, that's fabulous.
Joan Day: And by the way, um I don't know what kind of jail this is. So be prepared for anything. I mean, wear a shirt you don't love-love.
Jess: Okay.
Joan Day: Love you. Hi Nick.

Schmidt: There, a reaction! Thank goodness! Now I know I'm not a ghost.

Quote from Jess

Cece: Hey, hey. Are you really letting Nick meet Abby?
Jess: Hell no. I'm going to pick her up from jail. Like, straight-up jail. I told Nick he could meet her on her "layover" but, whoops, her flight got changed. No time. Sorry. Bye, Nick! I'll see you later!
Nick: [o.s.] I'm out of shampoo! Gonna use bar soap! But your sister won't know the difference!
Jess: Okay! Can't wait for you to meet her! [whispers to Cece] He's never going to meet her.
