New Girl "Bachelorette Party" Review: Countdown to a Runaway Bride

New Girl S02E22: "Bachelorette Party"


We all know that Cece and Shevrang aren't meant to be. Sure, they've had their cute moments—and there were many of those in "Bachelorette Party"—but all along there's been the sense that they just aren't a good fit for one another. When you or your partner have habits and personality quirks that irk the other, there's certainly room to change, but in a healthy relationship, there are limits to what's acceptable to alter. Stuff like popping chewing gum loudly, blowing up burritos in the microwave (and leaving the mess for someone else to find), struggling to consistently put the toilet seat down—those are all things that are perfectly reasonable to ask someone, even someone you're gearing up to marry, to stop doing. But "bigger" stuff is a different story.

To be fair to Shevrang, he has never explicitly told Cece to get with the ultra-traditional program he's so fond of, but over the course of her relationship with him, she's developed a sense of what is and isn't appropriate and unfortunately for, pretty much every aspect of her life sets off alarms with Shevrang... and us... and possibly herself if the outcome of her surprise bachelorette party is anything to judge by. 

No one has called off the wedding just yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if we end up with a runaway bride situation on our hands in the coming weeks. Jess was horrified that Cece seemed to rush into planning a wedding in just a matter of weeks, and crushed and angered that CeCe outright rejected the bachelorette party that Jess pulled together based on teenage Cece's very specific guidelines. Maybe Cece would have been more receptive to "Pin the Dong on Shevrang" and the always classy, drunken bride-to-be slideshow if one of her future in-laws wasn't in tow, but based on how surprised everyone in the loft was by the arrival of Cece's wedding invitations—especially Jess, who should have been front and center as Cece's BFF and probably Maid of Honor—it seems like Cece is taking a purely utilitarian approach to her wedding. No frills. No parties. No dwelling on questions like, "do I actually even like this guy I'm committing the rest of my life to?" She just wants it to be over with, and while that's not an entirely out-there sentiment to have during wedding planning, it does set a rather alarming tone going into her marriage to Shevrang. What happens when the exhilaration of marriage ends and Cece realizes she made a terrible mistake?

Because that right there? That's totally Cece's "I've made a terrible mistake" face. 

Ultimately, Cece's chaperone and almost-in-law turned out to be really cool, and despite a night of horrifying shenanigans at the hands of Winston and Nick, Shevrang rushed to calm Cece's fears (about not seeing his peen) as soon as they were made aware to him. He clearly cares about Cece on some level, and maybe if he wasn't so uptight about his image and Cece as an extension of that image, they might have a chance as a couple. However, as it stands, I think the clock is counting down for those two. Cece was practically brought to tears by Schmidt's heartfelt apology about being selfish when they were dating/not-dating. 

Schmidt's storyline echoed Cece's this week when her refusal to allow him a +1 at her wedding kicked off a campaign to prove to Cece that he needed to be allowed to bring a date because he would most certainly have one. When Cece countered that +1s are only for spouses and serious partners, Schmidt balked at the idea that he couldn't maintain a serious relationship. He sought out a parade of exes and one-night-stands, apologized, freaked them out, and eventually realized that HE might've been the problem in those failed relationships. 

Cece is in the process of burying her true self in preparation of her marriage to Shevrang, but Schmidt's real self has been hidden for years. According to his ex-girlfriend from college, Elizabeth—whom he managed to keep around for an astounding (for Schimdt) four years—the problems in their relationship started when Schmidt got skinny. He lost weight and then he got mean and we know she wasn't bluffing because we saw him giving her a barf-inducing cutsey foot rub back in his fat suit days. She called him "the big guy" and loved him dearly, but had no lingering feelings for the skinny guy asking for forgiveness on her stoop. Schmidt apologized and brought her pizza and claimed that "the big guy" is still inside him somewhere. AWWWW. 

Then it got weird. Weirder than Nick spending the entire episode romping around in his dead dad's banana yellow track suit.

So, Cece and Shevrang's impending nuptuals are still Cece and Shevrang's impending nuptuals. Cece has bestowed Jess the Maid of Honor title. All should be right in the world... but not really. 


What did you think of "Bachelorette Party"?




NOTES


– One-liner of the night: "There's a sexually aggressive message on the mirror and I apologize for that," purely for Zooey Deschanel's delivery. Also, Schmidt's montage of apologies.

– Gotta love the Dead Dad Pass. 

– I liked the continuation of Too Intense to Function Winston: The threats to beat Shevrang with a baseball bat if Shevrang didn't submit to being kidnapped, the staredown, the setting a trash can on fire... 

– I thought there would be more Jess/Nick awkwardness once the truth came out that the dick pic was of Nick's junk, not Shevrang's. Loved how Nick was super proud once he realized Jess wasn't horrified. 

– On the Nick-and-Jess-are-so-awkward-it-hurts note: Cece calling Jess out on acting like a seventh grader re: crushing on Nick. Glorious. 

– Do you think we'll see Elizabeth again? Do we want to? Given her extensive history with Schimidt and the fact that they looked like they were on their way toward reconciliation with the sexually charged pizza par-tay, do you think she could rival Cece for Schmidt's affections?

for me, the ultimate absolute one-liner of the night came from Elisabeth:

Schmidt: Elisabeth, to be fair, at that point you were eating the lion's share of the food
Elisabeth: And you were sitting there, eating one basil leaf, looking like an idiot panda bear!

I laughed at that really hard:) her expression was so genuine, so sweetly angry and her points were so well-stated, she is kinda my new favorite side character:)

speaking about side characters, the pregnant lesbian doctor lady is always hillarious, the way she was hitting on the models and her desperation to have some fun yet falling asleep through the most exciting parts of the party:) and how interesting is that only she was invited to the bachelor's party but not her wife:)

this show is getting better every single week..

I really think that the only reason that they introduced Elizabeth right before Cece's wedding isn't for no reason. I believe that they gave Schmidt a new(old) love interest so that the fans wouldn't be as upset when he is alone and Cece is married. Unfortunately they have been drawing out the whole connection between S and C. I hope C doesn't get married, but it will be hilarious when Jess makes a big mess of the wedding and has to fix it.

One-liner of the night: "I am Gérard Depardieu. Who do you think i am? I'm Schmidt."
I'd like to see Elizabeth again. She and Schmidt clearly have a lot of history together and Schmidt could use a stable relationship for a while and not dwelling on CeCe.

Alfredo the male stripper had me laughing so hard. It was the same kind of random humour that had me laughing at the singing homeless date crasher in the previous episode. So good! Also Schmidt's 'you look like a homeless pencil' made me choke on my tea.

I thought Winston (couldn't even tell you the guy's real name without looking it up) was really good in episode for what he did. He was only a minor player but the way he delivered his lines was classic. Also the sort of demented look on his face when set the bin (bin not trash can because I'm 'stayan) on fire was great. Job well done in another strong episode.

The dialogue was especially funny in this episode. So many one-liners!!
"You look like a homeless pencil"
"You question my pajamas, you make me question our entire friendship!
"You shut that pretty mouth of yours, Romeo, before I fill it with fire!"
"Why is Alfredo crying in the elevator?"
And the one that cracked me up the most, probably due to Zooey's delivery of the line: "And if we're all really honest with ourselves, isn't it all about the gonads? Am I right, ladies?"
Also, as much I like Schmece, I wouldn't mind if Elizabeth stuck around for a while, I really liked her character.
P.S.: I thought the name of Cece's fiance was spelled "Shivrang"...

The writers once again showcased their brilliance by benching Nick and Jess for this episode. I mean as the titular New Girl you can't cut Jess out completely, but Nick was reduce to two gags, the tracksuit and the 'dead dad card', both appropriate, both funny, and neither overdone. We've been getting a lot of Nick/Jess lately and it is the perfect time to take a breather, thanks writers!

I love that Winston's character is getting fleshed out, for a long time I worried they didn't know what to do with him, but now he's obviously the guy who extremely overreacts to certain social problems and it's hilarious. First his heat-of-the-moment 'kill Jess?' suggestion in the last week, and now taking the kidnapping too seriously. He has me in stitches more than he ever has before.

I made this comment/pun on last nights "What to Watch Tonight" article:

"Shevrang? More like Shev-wrong for Cece... I think that is worst pun I've ever made."

It's funny because I've made MUCH worse puns. Oh, and it's also funny because his name really is supposed to be pronounced "Shev-wrong". Guys, I think I'm psychic... No? Not buying it? Well, I tried.

Anyway, I think the writers are subtly telling us that Shevrang's shelf-life has a best before date somewhere around (or exactly on) the date of the "wedding". I put "wedding" in quotations because we all know it's not gonna happen. I'm not even sure if the writers WANT us to believe there's a chance Cece will walk down the aisle. Shevrang appears to be a nice enough guy, but it's pretty damn obvious that he is nothing more than an obstacle in the way of Schmece. The writers might be trying to trick us, but I think this whole Shevrang storyline is going to go out with a Shev-BANG! (I told you!)

Which brings me to Schmidt. He seems like he's going through something of an identity crisis. After Cece said he wasn't a serious relationship guy, he went off to prove her wrong. But somewhere between the narcissism and that woman hysterically running away from him in the parking lot, he discovered Cece was right. Until Nick reminded him that it is Skinny-Schmidt who has had trouble maintaining a relationship, because Fat-Schmidt dated Elizabeth for 4 years! (That's like 40 in Skinny-Schmidt years.) Which caused him to seek out his old, rotund flame, in hopes that he could (re)become someone worthy of Cece's love.

But am I the only person who finds this whole Elizabeth thing a little strange? She loved Fat-Schmidt, but hated the insensitive jerk he turned into when he lost the weight. I get that. What I don't agree with is her solution to bring the nice-and-loveable-Schmidt out again. She shouldn't have to fatten him up to find the True-Schmidt. I hope I'm wrong and those three pizzas were just penance for all the douchiness she had to endure while Schmidt got skinny. But if the fat-suit makes a present day appearance, then Elizabeth is an enabler, and rather selfish to make Schmidt resume an unhealthy lifestyle.

Lastly, let's discuss Nick's... thing... Hmmm. I probably could have worded that better. I liked how an episode that took a break from the Nessie drama still managed to eek their relationship along a little further. Jess has seen Nick's penis. THERE! That wasn't so hard (that's what she said! - Dammit!). And she liked what she saw. Isn't that like 2nd and 1/2 base? These two may be locked in a sophomoric will-they-or-won't-they holding pattern (or as Cece called it "A single adult who kissed another single adult"), but it's their grade 7 antics that make it so adorable. Cece and Jess with were both right on the money in their heated criticisms of the others love life, but the key difference is Cece is not with the guy she's meant or possibly even wants to be with, whereas Jess is with her Mr.Right, even if he dresses like a "homeless pencil."

I do believe that Elizabeth was just punishing Schmitt for being a jerk and an idiot. Or possibly to also show him it's okay and even healthy to have pizza once in a while. I doubt she's trying to fatten him up. Also, didn't she lose weight? Was it just me or did she look thinner in the present day than in the college flashbacks?

I love seeing Winston over react to these things. His basketball career was clearly not the reult of him being the tallest or fastest guy on the court, but the one who never stopped running and while he may not have been a superstar, that kind of reaction is clearly his answer to anything he doesn't fully understand at first. He hears kidnap, and instantly gets on board with an abduction. It is like his overrection when it comes to pranking, he does not play the long game, he goes for blood instantly, but in a funny manic way.

No, I don't imagine that CeCe gets married.l like the flashbacks of Fat Schmidt, but if they are going to have him get fat again, they are going to have to make losing the weight a big drawn out story. He isn't 22 anymore, his mettabolism has slowed down, and while that can be a good joke for a bit, I think I would get tired of it. And seeing CeCe not dating him because he was fat would start making her look like a bad person, when the show has tried to make it clear that she isn't a bad person, just hangs out with models who are.

So yeah, clearly the wedding won't happen. The only question is the specifics of how it will play out. On the whole, Shevrang's not a terrible guy. Seems fairly successful and not a completely douche, but he does seem to want CeCe as more of a traditional style wife than what she wants to be. And you shouldn't have to change your whole identity to be with someone. And the fact that she couldn't pronounce his name correctly??? And you're supposed to be marrying the guy in less than a month. If that isn't a red flag, I don't know what it.

I feel kind of underwhelmed by this episode as a whole. There were moments that I loved (super-intense Winston and his plan antics) but there were also parts that had me scratching my head. It seemed really random that Nick was having this "dead dad excuse" phase right now. I know people deal with grief in different times and different ways, but it just seemed out of place given how he has behaved up to this point with the death.

I like Elizabeth as of now. But I'm curious to see just how big of a foil they make her. I don't see Schmidt just saying screw everything and going back to the Fat Schmidt days, but it would be interesting to see more of that personality in present-day Schmidt. I like that we're starting to really see Schmidt grow up a bit more. It makes me feel like Elizabeth will be more of a foil than just a couple of episodes given the reverse trajectories Schmidt and CeCe are going on right now.

I honestly got a Barney Stinson vibe from Schmidt when he 'challenge accepted' Cece's offer of a +1, but then he failed miserably looking for one. I don't want Schmidt to turn into Barney. Schmidt has so much more depth in character. Speaking of Schmidt, 'big guy' or fat Schmidt is so funny!

I take issue with the idea that "down" is the always the correct position for the toilet seat. It comes down to math.

Two people of opposite genders, yes:
Assume 5 visits per day per person
(I'm picking fairly rough numbers for easy math, dont read anything into it)
Assume 4/5 bathroom visits are "number 1s"
That's 4 standing + 1 sitting visit for the male and 5 sitting visits for the female.
So, 6/10 visits it is more convenient to have the toilet seat down.

Two men sharing a bathroom:
8/10 visits are standing. Leaving the toilet seat up is best.

Two men and 1 woman:
8/15 visits are standing. Leaving the toilet seat up is best, just barely.

3 men and 2 women:
12/25 visits are standing. Leaving the toilet seat down is best, just barely.

So, in every residence, the ratio of men vs women and corresponding math should determine whether up or down is the default position of the toilet seat. Obviously, they should make "please put the toilet seat back up" signs for fraternities.

Ladies, we've been letting you have this one for years, but it's not because you're right, it's because it's easier to let you think you're right and we're misbehaving than it is to argue with you.

Okay, safibwana, don't be bringing your unassailable logic into this insane debate. Women simply can't be asked to look before they sit down.

IMO, the best course of action is to put *both* seats down. If someone doesn't manage to notice /that/ then they're welcome to clean up the mess until they learn.

Both seats down, definitely. Just because it minimizes the amount of bacteria (or whatever) that flies out of the toilet when you flush.

For me, the toilet seat up/down issue is, and always has been, a hygiene one, not a convenience one. You do realize that if you flush the toilet without the cover on you're basically aerosolizing your waste? Also, I've always been of the opinion that it's gross to essentially "display" the toilet bowl. I always put the cover down, every time, even though I live alone. I think for a lot of women this is the issue, as opposed to the possibility of falling in - which would also be extremely gross.

I'm totally with you on the hospital thing. Lids on the toilets. Hospitals give patients deadly bacterial infections all the time. Are these real considerations for the single-bathroom-home though? Serious question, I'm just not seeing the added risk. If one of two people who live together has a bacterial infection and they live together, they are pretty much both gonna get it, aren't they?

I wasn't suggesting that germs/exposure to "icky things" aren't a natural part of life, or that they don't play their part in building our immune system, reducing allergies, etc. I'm also well aware of the serious problems antibacterial soap causes by allowing bacteria to evolve drug resistance. However, in this particular instance, putting the lid down does play a part in public health - they've traced back Clostridium infections, which are the most common hospital acquired infections, back to the aerolization of the bacteria from lidless toilets in public hospital restrooms (Best 2012). Clostridium also keeps company with E. coli, Streptococcus and lots of other nasties that can make people seriously ill - which is a good thing that our immune systems do their job and why most people don't get sick. That's not to say that it doesn't happen, and that it's not a good idea to reduce the introduction of bacteria into your environment, which was the only point I've been trying to make..

@CKGirl Not a legitimate health/safety problem. An irrational phobia. The more icky things you are exposed to, the greater your ability to fight them. This isn't news to anyone who has been paying attention to, well, the entire history of medical science (see vaccines, the vulnerability of indigenous peoples to foreign illnesses, etc).

This is also just one of the many reasons antibacterial soap is bad. To quote just one study from 2009: "Contrary to assumptions related to earlier studies, our research suggests that ultra-clean, ultra-hygienic environments early in life may contribute to higher levels of inflammation as an adult, which in turn increases risks for a wide range of diseases," - Thomas McDade (lead researcher, referring, in particular, to a belief some researchers had that exposure to certain bacteria caused heart problems later in life or some such nonsense)

Okay guys, this has been a disgusting eye-opener. I'm off to install hermetically sealed bathrooms in my home and use a new toothbrush head for every brush.

You're right, I think, it was even the ones in the other room. I guess that makes sense if you think about how many times per hour air circulates in a modern home.
Flag
Actually, toothbrush covers/medicine cabinet storage provides a better environment for bacteria to breed than the open air. Storing your toothbrush in a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution (changed daily, as it converts to water) is the safest way to keep your toothbrush, as this disinfects. If you're really curious/germaphobic, the book Overkill by a professor from Harvard's Public Health school has a lot of great everyday solutions for such problems.

And despite the fact that nothing can stop all of the germs because they are everywhere, including very far away from the bathroom, putting the toilet lid down drastically reduces them and the range in which they travel. So there's no need to be snippy about the fact that women have a legitimate health/safety problem with ANYONE leaving the toilet lid (not just the seat) up.

It might be the great equalizer since it's easier for men to pee standing up. So letting women 'have this one' is to 1. avoid arguments 2. a consolation prize. Hilarious.

It reminds me of that South Park episode... where a woman dies because she sat down with the seat up. The men suggest that perhaps if it's that dangerous that the woman just always check before sitting and the women freak out at the situation.

I mean, it's one thing if you're visiting your GF's apartment and you leave it up it's a jerk move. She lives alone and is used to it being down all of the time so you're guaranteeing she's going to fall in.

But if a man and woman live together, then honestly the woman should probably always check so she doesn't fall in.

Sure the guy might want to be nice about it and leave it down when he's done but that's just being polite.

I honestly think that Elizabeth will stick around for a little while (in my experience ex reunions after everyone has moved on are either palate cleansers or almost meant to be reunions). Honestly, she might just be to serve as the plot device to make Schmidt grow up a little and to keep Schmidt and Cece apart for awhile after whatever happens with the wedding (I actually think it assists in another barrier in Nick and Jess as well as Jess is against this whole thing and Nick went and made friends with Shivrang who I suspect will be the one hurt here). The whole line about Cece's horror at mispronouncing his name had me laughing so hard that I almost missed Nadia's "hello Jew" line. I hope we see more of Alfredo, who I suspect might be part of Jess and Cece's pre loft friend group and just the sort of innocuous version of stripper Jess would choose. Those strains of Candyshop with his consternation were very funny.

The funniest part is that Shivrang's in any kind of power to affect how CeCe behaves, traditional or not. Out of all the absurd stuff that comes from this show, completely rewriting her character for the few weeks of this relationship takes the cake.

Still, I'll take any CeCe..centric episode I can get, and I liked when the auntie finally mellowed out. This show's been kinda funny lately, or maybe I just finally got used to Jess and Nick. I really think it's just been a little funnier.

I think this episode was mostly set to show how awkward Cece's wedding will be and that they will probably call it off. I'm feeling bad for her, since she's trying so hard to do the "right thing" and please everybody. But Jess is right and she shouldn't have to change herself to marry some guy she barely knows. I'm not a big fan of Elisabeth right now, who seems a little judgey (skinny people can be nice, lady). But I guess it will soften Schmidt a bit and then he can be Cece's prince charming.

I don't think she was judging skinny people- she was judging Schmitt and how he changed into a jerk. She didn't like it and didn't like the way he treated her.

I was hoping that Elizabeth too get super fit slim model but oh well, that would be very predictable right? I don't think we will be seeing much of Elizabeth because suppose if Cece is not meant for this upcoming wedding, Mr. Perfect-Body will be the reason. Besides I am not seeing Schmidt letting himself go from perfect-fit to super-fat status anytime soon.

My favorite moments were of Winston. They were short, but intense as you mention, and really fun to take in.

Well I didnt love or hate this episode I found it to be ok. It was another episode that I was expecting to be funny and I guess I raised the bar too high. I think the down side was that the Aunt followed her up and made CeCe walk on egg shells the entire episode. I would have been alot funnier they they did do a full out bachelorette party b/c with Nadia and the other models (including that dumb blond "table" model) I think that would have been funny to watch, instead we had an episode of them akwardly sitting on a couch, and even the characters on the show knew it was boring.
Nick and Winston's story was ok (Winston's over reactions to things is starting to get scary tho, but its still fun to watch). But what really wish the episode focused more on was Schmidt finding his exs. And it is already confirmed that Elizabeth's character would be in a couple episode, and I for one am looking forward to it.
Is next week's episode "Virgins"? Because I am looking forward to that one (and hopefully it isnt a let down)
Two thing:
1)"Shevrang, he has never explicitly told Cece to get with the ultra-traditional program " I beleive it was CeCe's mother who was pushing her to be more traditional. Also when your meeting your partner's family for the first time you dont want to appear to be too wild and you want to look like a good "old fashion" type of girl. So thats why CeCe was so restrained the whole episode.
2)"I thought there would be more Jess/Nick awkwardness once the truth came out that the dick pic was of Nick's junk, not Shevrang's. Loved how Nick was super proud once he realized Jess wasn't horrified" um Jess has already seen it last season remember the episode Naked (i think it was the 4th episode of the series). That also brings up the quetion of whther or not she would be able to recognize it (I guess she didn't, or she just asumed it was Shivrang in the pic).
Best line was from that Blond Model after CeCe says she has never seen Shivrang's stuff:
"Its that Small?!?!"" (or something along those lines)
Also Nadia after seeing the pic "three more week's of winter"

a couple more things to add to point #2
Wait did you mean horrified as in how it looked or horrified as in him sending a pic of himself?
And I wonder if his pic was deleted off of the phone.

OK The best thing in this episode was when Shmidt tried to give a girl flower and she dropped her bag and ran screaming it was really funny
