This week Jess learns a few things about Birthdays. She sets out, like every year with the lowest of expectations for her big day and books her typical cinema ticket for one. Nick tries to do the right thing as the new boyfriend and lay things on to keep her happy. What he learns is that the best laid plans can always go tits up, especially when he arranges nothing and tries to spend the day in bed with Jess.
Really, though, because the guys love her, they’ve set up a surprise party and are just trying to keep her distracted so they can put it all together. She loses patience with Nick and goes home for a good cry, making it even harder for the other guys to get things done.
When it all goes wrong, they pull through and not only give her a special present, but they teach her something, too. It’s not all about material things, love!
In the beginning of the episode Cece give Jess a present in a flashback, and she’s disappointed at only getting a jumper. Jess learns that all you need is your friends, and the people you care about to have a good time. All her friends ambush her at the cinema, and throw a party there.
The show has always been about keeping the main guys close together, and if they continue to do it like this, they’ll be back to full strength soon. They’ve even managed to bring Schmidt back from the abyss, and we’re falling in love with him all over again. Is it me, or was his trick in the bar step one to winning Cece back?
Nice one guys,
