S1, E1: “Pilot”

Meet Jess Day — a happy-go-lucky school teacher who ends up not so happy (or lucky) in the pilot episode of New Girl. She just found out her boyfriend has been two-timing her, leaving her no choice but to move out of his place and move into a new apartment with three male strangers that are just as quirky as she is.

S3, E14: “Prince”

New Girl isn’t a stranger to A-list guest stars, including the likes of Megan Fox, Jamie Lee Curtis, Taylor Swift, and…Prince. Yes, music icon, Prince. In this episode, Jess and CeCe find themselves with an invitation to a party at Prince’s house and the guys find a way to crash it.
