TV Show • 2011 • Comedy  

Report
Jessica Day is an offbeat and adorable girl in her late 20s who, after a bad breakup, moves in with three single guys. Goofy, positive, vulnerable and honest to a fault, Jess has faith in people, even when she shouldn't. Although she's dorky and awkward, she's comfortable in her own skin. More prone to friendships with women, she's not used to hanging with the boys—especially at home.

There are multiple mentions of Nick's ex-girlfriend Caroline physically, emotionally, and psychologically abusing him in the past. Nick forgives her, and gets back together with her near the end of Season 1, but soon breaks up with her before any abuse resumes. Throughout Season 4, Schmidt's girlfriend manipulates and uses him; he forgives her every time, and they break up on friendly terms. S5Ep9, Winston tells Schmidt to use a 'cop voice' to convince Cece to do something, so while Winston, Cece, and Schmidt sit in the sitting room together, Schmidt yells at Cece in a genuinely stern tone. Cece leaves the apartment upset, but comes back later to forgive Schmidt. S6Ep16, after Aly comes into a public bathroom, Winston jumps out and Aly kicks him several feet on instinct. S7Ep6, after Schmidt and Cece come to see Winston and Aly, Schmidt pulls Winston aside and tells him/has flashbacks about Cece yelling demeaning and antisemitic things at Schmidt due to hormones.

Since one of the main characters is a bartender, many scenes take place in the bar, where people often get drunk. Several times per season the main characters drink an excessive amount of alcohol together (particularly during the True American drinking game) and there are drunken antics. Additionally, in S5Ep11, when there is a flashback of Cece and Jess pulling a knife out of the wall of Cece's apartment and then putting it back in, a 12-year-old walks in and asks for alcohol. S7Ep1, a bunch of parents get wildly drunk and violent towards each other at a 3-year-old's birthday party. S7Ep8, during the drinking game True American, there is a flash forward of young children playing the same game and drinking from unidentifiable cans; the word beer is said as one child drinks, but the children are presumably drinking pop.

In Season 7 either Episode 5, 6, 7 or 8 (I apologize that I can't remember which episode), while discussing the quality of living in the loft's building, Cece mentions to Jess that the building's elevator fell down into the basement and fell onto someone.

I'm thankful for the comments, but they were scattered so I put them in order:

S1E16 3 minutes in. Someone throws lettuce at Schmidt, he vomits on screen
S1E18 toward end of episode, Nick says he needs to puke, but doesn't until another scene. He vomits in the grass

S2E1 12 minutes in Schmidt taking a test and vomits on screen
S2E5 Cece heaves multiples times
S2E12 at about 12:30 Sam throws up in the fire place, it's mentioned later
S2E20 around 15:40 Elvis impersonator dry heaves and later vomits off screen, only audible

S3E21 during flashback, Coach is crying in a tub and sticks his fingers in his mouth and gags, but doesn't throw up

S4E8 Coach wakes up after Jess tells Ryan she has feelings for him, Coach demands a bucket to throw up, but he doesn't
S4E15 Schmidt and Cece are sitting in a bathroom stall, Cece says she needs to throw up and leans over toilet, but the scene changes before she vomits

S7Ep7, right after Nick's publisher talks to Nick about his latest manuscript and then walks away, bird poop lands on Nick's shoulder; smeared remains of it are on his shoulder for the rest of the episode.

S2Ep10, there is a plotline about anxiety attacks, and there are several on-screen anxiety attacks. S2Ep15, while Nick and Jess argue in a room during a drinking game, Nick mentions that he's panicking and then climbs out a window onto a ledge to get some air. S3Ep14, Jess panics and faints after Nick finds her at the party, then Nick does the same after he sees Prince. S3Ep23, when Coach volunteers for a demonstration, he has a panic attack for a few minutes. S5Ep5, after Schmidt and Bob are shown sitting on the couch together while Nick and Carol are in Nick's room, Schmidt and Bob run in to find Nick having a panic attack. S5Ep10, when Nick comes to Jess' room and finds both Jess and Reagan in there, he mentions he is "feeling anxiety" and his legs are tingly from it. S6Ep8, there are no anxiety attacks, but Winston practices an alter ego throughout the episode and sometimes it's like he has Dissociative Identity Disorder: at one point he asks Jess what she talked to his alter ego about as he wasn't aware during the conversation, and another time he does something as his alter ego that he doesn't remember afterwards. S6Ep11, at the beginning of the episode Nick frantically starts changing things in the apartment in preparation for his girlfriend coming, and Cece states that he's having an anxiety attack.

There is no on-screen childbirth, but in S4Ep10, after Jess gets mad at Schmidt for giving Cece her purse, there is a prolonged scene at a baby shower with a fairly far along pregnant woman. S5Ep7, in the opening scene, there is a brief discussion about someone having given birth in a kitchen; the birth apparently "didn't go well." Throughout Season 7, a major character is shown highly pregnant, and her bare stomach is shown multiple times in S7Ep1. S7Ep7, a major character goes into labour and has contractions throughout the episode, then she gives birth off-screen awhile after they arrive at the hospital.

S5Ep4, Nick and Schmidt walk into Jess' room and greet a person in a wig and one of Jess' dresses, who turns around and is someone who uses he/him pronouns. Nick and Schmidt don't make fun of the person, but the two of them are clearly struggling not to, and the music playing is a tune that usually plays during jokes.

Jess dates a man named Russell Schiller in the episodes “Fancyman part 1” and “Fancyman part 2,” and maybe for some time in later episodes as well. It is clear that Russell is much older than Jess, as he has gray hair and I believe children?

Jess also flirts with and kisses (offscreen) a man who is older than her. He is also one of her best friends fathers, which makes the situation even more uncomfortable.

In the scene where Nick is donating sperm to give to his cousin and his wife(i can’t remember her name) who are unable to have a baby, the situation gets strange and the last resort is for the wife to physically have sex with Nick. The time comes and Nick is clearly uncomfortable, but his cousins wife keeps yelling at him to take his pants off and get on with it. Eventually, Nick panics and leaves. He stands up for himself by saying something along the lines of “you guys are treating me like an object, and I will not stand for it!” Nick and his cousins wife do not end up having sex.

There is a character who lives on the streets outside of the roommates apartment. Many people call him “Outside Dave.” He is often shown to be dirty and sometimes acting a bit crazy. He is seen in multiple episodes throughout the show, but his appearances are never meant to be taken as a serious issue, they are all in a joking manner.
