In this week's episode of New Girl, two storylines run at the same time.
Schmidt, unsurprisingly, has a hard time relinquishing control. Nick and Winston put up with it because Schmidt cooks and cleans for everybody without complaint. Jess, ever the good person, wants Schmidt to relax a little and help him stop Nick and Winston from taking advantage of his neat freak tendencies. Things go awry when Schmidt is unable to find a happy medium and relaxes TOO much, causing Jess to ask him to return to the control freak he once was.
Meanwhile, Nick and Winston had a poker night with friends that culminates in a drunken Nick owing Winston $437. When Winston talks to Nick about his outstanding debt, it escalates to the two arguing over all the money they had ever borrowed from each other. Things come to a boiling point when they get into a physical fight at the grocery, ending with the two of them agreeing to just forgive any outstanding debt.
Have any of you found it hard to relinquish control like Schmidt? Or have you ever had the uncomfortable task of asking for money that's owed to you by a friend? Let me know in the comments below!
