New Girl recap: Hank Sgiving

Jess invited her cute teacher friend to Thanksgiving, and it was as adorable as a calamitous night climaxing in the discovery of a dead body could be

NEW GUY That's pronounced "Ginz-linger," if you please

Patrick McElhenney/Fox

Notable dotables:

Nick: No, Jess. We're not doing Thanksgiving. We talked about this. We're just going to watch football, drink beer, and then we're going to Best Buy for Black Friday.
Winston: Or as I like to call it, Friday.
Schmidt: It's our thing, Jess -- Dudesgiving.
Nick: Okay, no matter how many e-mails you send, that's not a thing.

Schmidt: Here's another tip -- don't ask a guy out on a first date on the least sexy holiday in America.
Jess: What are the most sexy holidays?
Schmidt: The most sexy holidays are Fourth of July, uh... Independence Day obviously, Women's History Month, and Christmas.

Jess [after throwing a turkey in the dryer]: I put it on permanent press.
Nick: Good, so you don't have to iron it.

Jess: He's here early! How do I look?
Schmidt: It's better if you don't know.

Jess: I forgot to tell you -- Paul brought his violin, and, with a little coaxing, he might fiddle with the old horsehairs.
Paul: Only if you don't mind being enchanted!

Winston: Okay, here's what we're going to do, Paul -- just so I can get to know you better and you can get to know me better -- we're going to play a little game.
Paul: Oh, great, fun. Yeah.
Winston: I'm going to say something, and you're going to say the first thing that pops into your head.
Paul: Kazoo!
Winston: Okay, we haven't even started yet.
Paul: Okay... I'm going to stick with kazoo.

What did you think, Newbies? Were you cracking up at Schmidt's culinary OCD? Did you buy CeCe's sudden crush? Will Nick actually do something about his jealousy or just keep making his turtle face? Where did this episode rank in terms of all the ones we've seen so far? Was Paul the fiddlin' fool a good addition to the mix? What do you want to see from him next?
