Moments That Require Money In the Douchebag Jar

25 'New Girl' quotes that definitely require money in the douche-bag jar

Schmidt is by far one of my favorite characters, from his eclectic personality to his AMAZING "douche-bag" quotes.


I was constantly laughing throughout watching "New Girl," which is a direct result of the hilarity of Schmidt and his ridiculous behavior.

The purpose of the douche-bag jar, which resides in the middle of the loft living room, is to help correct Schmidt's behavior, similar to a "Swear Jar." He is supposed to put money in the jar for anything he says or does that is considered douchebaggery. Infractions are typically worth one dollar but have been worth up to $50, at the discretion of his roommates. The jar, however, is mostly ineffective, as Schmidt takes pride in everything he does that warrants an infraction, and he proudly puts money into the jar.

1. Girl, I'mma marry you.

This is the only "douche-bag" quote that matters throughout the entire series of "New Girl."

2. Damn it! I can't find my driving moccasins anywhere.

Schmidt embodies all of us when we can't find the right shoes.

3. Have you seen my sharkskin laptop sleeve?

Schmidt embraces the struggle we all feel when trying to accessorize our laptops.

4. Guys, has anyone seen my good pea coat?

It sucks putting on the perfect outfit and not being able to find a good (pea) coat that can go over it.

5. If someone were to blow on my nipples, I would positively scream

We've all been there.

6. We'll just break out the backup china!

In case of a normal china disaster, break out the backup.

7. I had figure skating lessons until I was thirteen, and then my mom sobered up and realized I was a boy.

As a child, we played every sport known to man until we found one that clicked.

8. It's like you're ripping the side block out of my mental Jenga.

This is the perfect line to say out loud when you're facing a mental roadblock and don't know which way to turn.

9. It's on a popping' up in here!

When you find a good outfit in the fitting room and come out to show all your friends.

10. Look... we're not trying to be mean, we just don't want you to be yourself... in any way.

Schmidt and Nick exemplify how to speak to a shy girl who needs to "hoe-it-up" after a bad breakup.

11. LLS. Ladies Love Schmidt.

LLS, Ladies Love Sarcasm.

12. I don't want some janky fresh-water bitch fish, Winston.

14. This is friendship. Pure unadulterated friendship.

There is no better feeling than having your best friend scratch a place you can't reach.

15. Bathtubs are medieval filth cauldrons.

Unless they have a bath bomb or bubbles, then they're the best thing ever.

16. I love mango chutney, uh, really, any type of chutney.

The best part of trying to be ethnic and appreciate culture is obsessing over one specific type of food.

17. Are you cooking a frittata in a saucepan? What is this, prison?

We all have the one friend who is an expert chef, and then there's the one who burns mac and cheese in the microwave.

18. We have a very weird style friendship where we kinda hate each other. We're broemies, it's my fremesis.

College class friendships: you both love and hate each other.

19. Nick and Jess break up and you spring this on me like... like it's a frigging weather report?

RIP Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, all of our hearts broke with you.

20. Can someone please get my towel? It's in my room next to my Irish walking cape.

Trying to describe where someone thing revolves around describing the most obscure object it is next to.

21. Folding chairs? Jess, if I wanted my wedding to be an AA meeting, I would've called my Aunt Terry.

Folding chairs? The most inexpensive seat besides a cardboard box.

22. They make shoes for your penis. They're called pants!

ATTENTION ALL COLLEGE BOYS: Pants exist! They should not sag below your knees.

23. Where in this recipe does it say "put mash potato on Schmidt's nose"?

We all know one person who follows all recipes to the exact wording of the book.

24. You need to pee on my face.

Spring Break 101: When you're drunk, and think stupid ideas are good.

25. Oh God, you're about to say something stupid aren't you? Girl, I'mma marry you.

And once more for the best quote in the entire series.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
