New Girl catapulted to success since its premiere in 2011. And for good reason. Portraying a bunch of 30-somethings still trying to figure their shit out, the show was relatable to many a viewer. With Zooey Deschanel as leading lady Jess, the only female roommate in a loft apartment of guys, New Girl kept us laughing until it wrapped up in 2018.

While we’re still mourning its end, the comedy provided us with enough hilarious quotes and one liners to keep us giggling forever. We’ve therefore compiled a list of over 50 of our favorite New Girl quotes. Read on and bask in the wisdom of Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winston, Coach and Cece. (Please note: we use the word ‘wisdom’ very loosely.)
