Schmidt has evolved from a douchebag on New Girl to a HILARIOUS douchebag on New Girl.
The character has unique interests, such as walking sticks, and has always had a crush on CeCe. He actually started dating her midway through season one, and he also has a strong affection for his car.
Schmidt: Are you in love with me? Because I'm in love with you, deeply. I assume that you would never because I messed this up so many times. You've made it very clear you only want to be friends with me and I value that friendship so much. So it I'm ruining it by doing any of this, please stop me.
Cece: Schmidt. I'm in love with you.
Get rid of it, Jess. Pine has no place in this loft. It's the wood of poor people and outhouses.Schmidt
