Schmidt (Max Greenfield) read Nick’s (Jake Johnson) book, and he loves it — enough that he doesn’t have any notes for its author, something that bothers Nick to no end. So in an exclusive clip from the upcoming episode of New Girl, Nick demands some feedback.
“Here’s a note,” an irritated, dramatic-as-ever Schmidt responds. “Stop cutting yourself off at the knees like a selfish coward.”
We’re getting somewhere! But it’s still not about the writing, so Nick pushes his bud for more. It doesn’t work.
“You are a writer. A damn good one at that,” Schmidt says. “But you’re just too scared to admit it to yourself.”
Watch the clip above, and see the full episode when it airs Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
