THIS is how it’s done

My friend Rebecca blew up my phone on Tuesday night, anxious to discuss the monumental moment that had just aired on both our televisions.

I don’t care if you have never watched New Girl. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t invested in Jess and Nick’s background. What matters is that you need to watch this clip. Some of you will watch and dream. Others need to watch and learn. But everyone needs to just watch.

Feel free to forward to friends who made need inspiration or a boost to their day. And if you’re feeling courageous, go ahead and share your thoughts in the comment section and perhaps divulge how many times you’ve watched this clip on your own DVR and computer. For example, my contribution to the comment section would be “I’ve watched this roughly 33 times and believe it surpasses the Ross and Rachel kiss. PS: Jake Johnson is hot.”

Discuss.

    Ummmm yeah I’ve rewound and watched this about 10x on my DVR and then just stared at animated gifs on the computer all day long. BEST KISS EVER.

  2. kate a says:

    I soooo watched it! and then I rewound and watched again! and then I cheered and watched again – mostly because if I would have cheered the first time around, I’m worried it might have disappeared in a puff of smoke, never to be seen from again….

  3. Debbie says:

    Couldn’t agree with you more. Takes my breath away!! Thanks for posting.

  4. ally says:

    sooooooooooo how it is done!!! It curled MY toes, and he wasn’t even kissing me!!! LOVE THIS SHOW!!! WANT THEM TOGETHER!!!!

  5. KnoxGirl says:

    This recorded for me (accidentally) at the beginning of The Mindy Project and I felt so lucky to see it! I always see the last few minutes of New Girl when I watch Mindy and it is always entertaining, and now I’m convinced I need to watch regularly (on purpose!)! Awesome kiss!!

  6. I <3 Nick and Jess. I got goosebumps, made my husband rewind it b/c I was like, "Wait, what just happened?" We then watched again and smiled like idiots.

  7. Zandi says:

    it was FANTASTICAL!!! i loved it!! now i hope they don’t go and ruin it on next weeks episode. Nick + Jess= Forever!

  8. Shelli says:

    That was so haaaaawwwwttt! Thanks for the clip!

  9. BigRed says:

    Please send this to Sean….he needs it…a lot.

  10. Shonda says:

    I watched New Girl last night on my Hulu account and I *may* have done a victory first pump in the air when that happened. :)

  11. Birdie says:

    It made me so stinking happy. And that feeling in the pit of my stomach was totally there. Mmmmhhmmmm.

  12. Anne says:

    I loved it – that is how you kiss a girl! I hope someone sends this to Sean. They turned their heads and their was no tongue in sight!

    (I’ve watched it probably 5 or 6 times!)

  13. Anne says:

    Sorry, there was no tongue in sight!

  14. Lincee says:

    I KNEW I WASN’T ALONE!

  15. Hallee says:

    OH. MY. GOSH. Thank you for validating the fact that I have watched this approximately 20 times since Tuesday night! That is how it is done.

  16. Ruby25 says:

    Watched the episode and my jaw dropped when that happened. I don’t think I closed it for another two minutes. I’m glad that I wasn’t the only one who got butterflies watching that kiss. :)

  17. Stephanie says:

    Loved Loved Loved this part of the episode and rewatched it quite a few times. I will usually laugh until crying on most episodes of New Girl. Love Jake Johnson. :D

  18. Sara says:

    Is this real life? If so, I want to live that life! That is exactly what every kiss should be like.

  19. Paula K says:

    First- So glad I wan’t alone in watching over 10 times.
    Second- So how it’s done!
    Third- Sean so needs to watch this and we need a video of him watching. No guaranteeing that he’ll master this great technique, which I have to say, surpasses anyone from the Bachelor.
    Fourth-how many would send it to their significant other for reference purposes?

  20. Brenna says:

    And THAT is how it’s done.

  21. Brandy says:

    Our Bachelor Sean needs to watch this! Between this and Arie, he should improve! :)

  22. Allipet says:

    It was magic! My husband didn’t understand what I was so excited about. I just love that show.

  23. Lorraine says:

    Yep…. I’m pretty sure I squealed when I watched it. That was a great kiss.Jake Johnson has some mad skills.

  24. Amy says:

    I have never watched New Girl….but based on the clip I might have to start!

  25. Rebecca J says:

    Yep- incredible!!

  26. Norma says:

    WOW! Just WOW! Now THAT was a KISS. Men, watch and LEARN.

  27. Lindsey says:

    Monumental moment for this already awesome show!! Her expression afterwards says it all. Can’t wait for next week.

  28. Jess says:

    I assume the ABC intern has already contacted him about giving Sean awkward kissing advice?

  29. Lincee says:

    I just watched it again. Maybe three times.

    There have to be men out there who will one day kiss me like this, right? It’s not just in my dreams and on my DVR?!

    RIGHT?!!!

  30. Jenn says:

    AAAAAAAAAAMEN Lincee! I did the rewind & watch again just one extra time but it didn’t lose it’s firepower at ALL! Sooooooo great!

  31. BA says:

    I have ALWAYS thought Jake Johnson was hot – I remember thinking that the first episode I saw. Rugged, every day kind of guy. But THIS took things to a while new level. WOW WOW WOW.

  32. Kim says:

    YES!!!!! Finally! I must admit I am currently ticked off with Directv because my DVR is broken due to an update they did and we lost all of our recorded shows….New Girl being one of them! Hello Directv, do you not know what I am missing????

    Thanks for coming through for me Lincee, I knew I could count on you!

  33. Marsha says:

    I know you loved FNL like I did…this was a pretty hot smooch, but for me, I’ve yet to see one beat Rigs and Lila’s forbidden, angry, hot-as-crap kiss in the rain. However, in my opinion, that may be because, were I not married to my own hunk of a man, I’d quit my job and spend my time hunting Rigs down with the hopes of reinactment. ;)

  34. atl says:

    Oh, I am so behind on the show, but excited to see this!! Marsha, that is a great kiss too, hard to beat Riggs!!

  35. Sara says:

    There’s people that DON’T watch New Girl. Umm, seriously it has the BEST writers! Hilarious!

  36. Ashley says:

    Yowza. I think I had the same reaction as Jess. I haven’t picked my jaw off the ground since watching it 3x.

  37. Marsha says:

    I went back and watched the Riggs/Lila kiss…no rain. Don’t know where I got that from, except that Riggs hair was wet. His hair was always wet, so…I don’t know. Anyway, just had to clear that up (not that it makes a difference. Still hotter than Tabasco.)

  38. AnnaC says:

    Oh, so glad I’m not the only one who thinks this surpasses Ross and Rachel’s kiss!

    And yes, I’ve watched it over and over again too.

  39. nic says:

    yup, i may or may not have watched it 7 times. it was greatness!! now im thinking about it all over again!!

  40. Andrea says:

    My heart stopped, and I couldn’t breathe for a minute. Wonderful stuff. Thank you, Zoey D. That was awesome.

  41. VickiG says:

    That was smokin’.

  42. Abby says:

    My husband and I love this show. It’s our favorite–right next to Downton. When this happened, you should have seen his face. So shocked! I took a picture of him clutching our dog and hands over his mouth shocked… But he said I can’t share it. Dang!

  43. Berkeley Bennett says:

    OMG So watched this over and over! I can’t wait for tonight’s episode!!!!

  44. Sincethebeginning says:

    I noticed that he turns his head to the side–almost horizontal. That’s called kissing with your entire body a la Arie. *sigh*

  45. Karen says:

    I am a DIEHARD Friends fan and the Ross and Rachel kiss has NOTHING on this one!! And I don’t even watch this show! Might have to now…

  46. Sarah says:

    You girls not getting much action, huh? THAT gets you all worked up??!!! Oh, you also probsbly think that Matt Bomer is straight. How adorbs.

  47. BeachGal says:

    {{{{{SIGH}}}}}} So anticipated. SO WORTH the WAIT!! I was out of town and when I got home, my HUSBAND said ‘You gotta see the KISS!!”
    ;)
