The concept of male friendship is up for debate, discussion, and dissection on tonight’s episode of New Girl, as the one between Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Nick (Jake Johnson) seems headed toward destruction. Why? Because Schmidt gave Nick a cookie, that’s why! In addition to explaining how a cookie can be so much more than a cookie, this installment of New Girl whisks us back to college for the first meeting of Nick and Schmidt.

You can see this historic comedic moment before the rest of America simply by clicking on the video below. (WARNING: Video contains a mustache, dry ramen, and Fat Schmidt.)

The perils of female friendship are highlighted in the episode as well: Jess (Zooey Deschanel) tries to fill in for Cece (Hannah Simone) at a modeling job. “Butt drinking” is also discussed.

“Models” airs tonight at 9 p.m. on Fox.
