We’re four episodes into the final season of “New Girl” and that means it’s time for some Coach. Yes, on Tuesday’s episode of the Zooey Deschanel-led Fox comedy, Damon Wayans Jr. will return as the fan-favorite roommate who moved to New York at the end of Season 4.
But it doesn’t look like everyone is thrilled to see their old pal.
In the clip above, which is exclusive to TheWrap, Nick (Jake Johnson) and Coach are at each other’s throats and Jess (Deschanel) has no idea why. The gang is all gathered at the bar “to celebrate the life of a cat” that loved Nick and Coach like sons — We’re assuming Furguson? But let’s not even go there right now — and these two can’t stop arguing.
Jess finally gets involved to see if this has to do with the fact Nick thinks the movie “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” should actually be called “Paul Blop: Mall Cop” (the rhyme is RIGHT there) or something equally ridiculous. Only it seems like the beef has a little more meat to it, once Nick confesses that Coach actually owes him $71,000.
While we have no idea why Coach needed that kind of dough and why Nick (now a successful author) lent it to him, we know that is probably a much bigger reason to bicker than the title of some movie. (Though, as Nick puts it, they did just “give up” there.)
Watch the clip above.
The final season of “New Girl” airs Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30 c on Fox.
