This podcast covers New Girl Season 4, Episode 4 Micro, which originally aired on October 4, 2014 and was written by Josh Malmuth and directed by Jay Chandrasekhar.
After the guys start to rate women by their physical attributes, Jess dates a man with a micropenis to prove to the rest of the loft that she’s not shallow. Meanwhile, Cece and Winston decide to mess with Coach and Schmidt and get them “into” modeling.
While not discussed in the podcast, we noted other references in this episode including:
- Vietnam War / Korean War – When the guys were comparing “cans” one of the guys noted the “Post-Korean war, pre-Vietnam war” time was the size he liked the best.
- Paula Cole – In the bar, Winston put “five dollars in the jukebox” to play a “Paula Cole rock block.”
- Hercules – In the modeling sequence, Schmidt was told he looked like “the only Jewish Greek God, Hercules.”
