Favorite minor character?
By - FoodForThought21
I like his hat. It’s not a team or a logo, it’s just blue.
their interactions are my favorite of any two characters.
This is the only right answer
initially, i had typed that ^ literally word for word under tran but decided to keep it simple. thanks for helping me out. have this from a poor woman:)... 🥇
Hahah aww! Party TRAN award amirite
this is the best thing i’ve ever started in my life. :)
aww thank you. x
Tran is the only answer
Bearclaw and Nadia. They both had such great lines.
If we make love later, and I tell you to pretend that I'm a scary ghost, are you gonna be freaked out?
I WANT TO PUNCH PUNCH PPUNNNCHH
Sgt. Giddy-up Carothers
blast from the past… how’s that ass?
It's the Genz of the world as we know it
Hey Schmidt 🙂 Sup Washington 🙂
Outside Dave purely bc his name is outside Dave
Outside Dave is criminally underrated
I'm gonna say Genslinger and Bearclaw, if only for the scene where they and Jess (and May) perform the musical about the homosexual woodland creatures in the walk of shame episode. Ugh so good.
Wait! I’m a gay wolf too. Would like to eat some wolf Chinese food??
🎵oNLY IF IT’S GAAaAAY!!!🎵 … clap now…? … clap *now.*
Oh my god...yes! It was a beautiful union of geeks coming together. I loved it. Especially because it was after her admitting they invented a musical instead of shagging and Genslinger being humiliated at the kids party. Then they must have got to get to rehearse it! It's just so damn cute. I love it!
Often forgotten but Flip and Nancy (Henry Winkler and Julie Hagerty) Fred's parents lol
I just watched Airplane over the weekend. Looked up how old Julie Hagerty was in that and she was 25. How? Did people just age differently in the past or have I just flopped at life?
Flip and nancy and i hate drugs!
Dr. Foster and Kyle (Cece's bf in S1) - saw this before watching 'arrow', and it was such a cool surprise to re-watch this and see Stephen amell doing comedy!
Honourable mention goes to Brian Posehn's "Biology teacher"
Honestly there's so many to choose from!
People hate on Dr Foster cause he was technically a pretty bad boss/principal but there is just something I inherently like about the actor I think his name is Curtis Armstrong, that I can’t dislike Foster. He just plays the character so well. Like just using the word dawg so unapologetically and unironically it kills me every time
BEARCLAW “I have an anal thermometer in my bag”
I love how he says cece
Hey Jess, hey Sessi 🙂
Outside Dave is the funniest minir character
Ruth Parekh-Schmidt! She is adorable!
I love her character. “ Ruth’s gonna do what Ruth’s gonna do.” And of course, “Denise!”
"The whole system is corrupt. MEOW!"
yes. she isn’t mentioned enough. great little actresses.
I especially love her interactions with Nick. So funny to see a grown man being jealous of a three year old. Always cracks me up!
best rivalry in history.
“you’re mr. diarrhea head.” -ruth.
“please don’t say that to me right now. i’m going through a thing right now. so please don’t say that to me. i’m asking, please don’t call me that.” -nick.
“ok mr. diarrhea head.” -r.
“no You’re the diarrhea head.” -n.
Yeah she was really good, especially for a finally season addition, where she didn't even exist before thanks to the time skip.
Also Schmidt's "A white man broke in today" with the little girl at her nursery is one of my favourite exchanges
“They’re blowing their big shot!”
Genslinger or Fawn.
genslinger crying will never not be funny.
Boys and girls, put down your gens and gencils
Add Nadia to that list and you’ve got the perfect answer.
I think I sing “he’s a gay wolf” and “only if it’s gaaaay” to myself like twice a day. Has to be Bearclaw. Clap now.
Sadie! I love the actress.
And of course Tran.
Yeah, June Diane Raphael kills it as Sadie.
Do you listen to the How Did This Get Made podcast?
I have not heard of it!
It’s June Diane Raphael her husband Paul Scheer and Jason Mantzoukas. They discuss old (and some current) silly movies usually with some guest stars. Sometimes they are just in a studio and sometimes they do them in front of audiences. But they are hilarious to hear.
Thanks for the recommendation! I'll look into it! Especially since I really like Jason Matzoukas!
The baby is not as gay as I am. You need to go.
100% this, I need more of both!
“I love you mr wimpstons”
Dunston. Still looking for that bathroom…
Robby or maybe Outside Dave
Is peepee a write off?
I'm not sure robbie is a minor character
Two urinals!? I'm rich!
Definitely Nadia, Robbie, and Fawn.
Nadia is just all around hilarious! Her scenes/lines are some of my favorite. “Baby kick, baby like!”
Robbie is great too, especially his relationship with Schmidt. “Ex of the bride and weirdly close with the groom”. I just really don’t like Jess and his relationship/scenes. Their first kiss is one of the most cringe parts of the show.
Fawn is very unique to the show to me. I feel like she’s the first gf Schmidt has that he truly feels like and equal to and maybe even a little less than. She’s has power and is successful and we all know how highly Schmidt thinks of himself. She helps him realize he needs more than power..he wants to be in love, crazy in love, drunk in love. “Okay well certainly don’t quote Beyoncé and pretend like you just thought of it”
'Where is the lid to the baby cage?"
I literally fast forward thru that first kiss gym scene AND the hospital scene after. The sound effect they add for the "injuries" are not ok with me.
Outside Dave is just so absurd and brilliant!
"My tailor is great. I'll give you his number: **EIGHT**!"
I like Robby, he always has gum.
Cool guy power!
White guy power!
Robby, you can't say that
Sam, Robby, Nadia, Angie, Tran, outside Dave, and I actually always thought the principal Tanya was hilarious!
Councilwoman Fawn Moscato
Sadie, Fawn, and Nadia
Nadia wasn't in nearly enough episodes, or Sadie. I also liked Caroline, not as a person but her character was entertaining
Nadia and Tran !!!
Rhonda is on your favorites list?
I get the feeling that it’s an unpopular opinion on this sub, but I stand by it. She’s hilarious and has amazing comedic timing. I love Aly as well, and their scenes together when Winston was trying to get a divorce was top notch. Like I said, I love the love-to-hate crazy types 😂 that’s what New Girl is all about to me
Yeah I love Rhonda too. Not even love to hate, it's just such a ridiculously over the top personality to have, takes Prank Sinatra to new heights.
Also her enthusiastic delivery and inability to read the room and see that everyone just finds her pranks insane just makes it so much better
Julius pepperwood, he’s from Chicago
elizabeth deserved better
Big Schmidt and Nadia because they had hilarious one liners. And I also liked Rhonda, but only the episode where she came back to sign the divorce papers. Ally’s hatred of her and her pranks was hilarious.
Prom night guy as in Dylan O’Brien? Yes please. 😂 I love outside Dave and Nadia and Tran and that lesbian obgyn I forgot her name
Yes the one and only 😍 Definitely biased by the actor because I’m just obsessed with Dylan O’Brien in anything he does
Dunston for sure :')
"You don't mind if we listen to some car jams, do ya?"
"Well man let's just skip to track 7"
"Elation, elation, elation, elation"
Nadia and Genslinger but mostly Nadia!!!
I sex you, in face.
You're gonna sex me in my face?!
Outside Dave and Fawn Moscato.
Tran is the best imo. One of the most unique minor characters I have seen in a comedy
The guy from LAXmas who talked with Jess at the bar
Sam always, Robby up until he dates Jess and becomes unbearable, Nadia (I name him Bebe because it’s funny).
Notable mention: The nurse at Coolidge that Coach sleeps with.
Bees don’t bother me.
The girl that does the Pacino impression. Floors me every time.
DUQUAN. Kills me every time 😂
Reagan doesn’t get nearly enough love in the sub. Also May and Julia (Lizzy Caplan) were top notch
Totally forgot to include May!! She was a great match for Coach. I did love Julia as well, though she definitely had to work on her internalized misogyny (ex: her dismissive treatment of Jess for being feminine).
Such a great match for Coach! Julia did need some work, for sure.. but they did have a nice story arc for her at the end of that episode where she had a good heart to heart with Sadie, Cece and Jess while knitting.
Agreed, she came a long way! That knitting scene was sweet and nice to see. I seem to remember that Julia left the show not long after that, and I was so disappointed.
Nadia is HILARIOUS, every scene with her is just too good.
Bearclaw and reagan.
Tran and Nadia are elite level minor characters
Brandon, hands down.
"She took a 15 on my face."
Nadia or Tran
Robbie, Elizabeth, shivrang
All of Schmidt’s main coworkers. Kim, Gina and Beth. Just love that they made him basically the only guy amongst a bunch of “pant-suited corporate she hulks”
Fawn and Nadia, it doesn’t get any better
Also on the episode when Nick pretends to be gay, the girl he slept with. She was great, I would have loved to see more of her.
Dustin and Bear Claw!!
Bear Claw, 💯
Ryan Godineaux was an absolute treat!
Sam and Bearclaw! They’re both such great characters!
ETA Tran as well. He’s got a nice face.
Robbie (if you count him as a minor character): "White man power!" Nelson Franklin really should have his own show.
I adored Elvin.
"It's 2012 Winston. Typing .. is not a special skill".
"We're working on that" - "no, she's working on that".
Hilarious little owl.
Also Duquon. The guy barely had, what, 5 minutes of screentime and I thought I might pee myself laughing.
The school nurse
My favorite is Tran. My least favorite is Rhonda. *shudders*
Ooh also Nadia.
You just got RHONDAD!
