Nick (Jake M. Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel), the two main characters of the show “New Girl” are opposite like chalk and cheese yet they have an uncanny relation growing. Jess is a kind of a girl who thinks that a smile can change the world and people are generally very good and caring. She thinks cupcakes can make people help her. She sees the world as a lovely place. And Nick on the other hand is completely opposite and thinks that people generally are not good in nature. In this episode “Landlord” they take their battle to a new level through fun filled and hilarious ways.
The apartment that Nick and Jess share is in a mess and needs fixing of many things but the landlord Remy (Jeff Kober) does not pay a heed. Nick tries his best to take control of the situation but he fails and Jess decides to convince the landlord. Though Nick is apprehensive of the fact that Remy wants to take advantage of Jess, she thinks that Remy loves them. They want to thank Remy and arrange a dinner for him. Remy, on the other side wants to engage in a threesome with Nick and Jess. They agree to this to prove their points to each other. Remy asks Nick to kiss Jess but at this point they call it quits.
