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.
CeCe: Are you "White Fanging" me?
CeCe: White Fang? The only book you have on your Kindle. The book you wouldn't stop talking about, and I said, "Would you please stop talking about White Fang" and then you said, "Someday, I'm gonna do that to somebody".
Get rid of it, Jess. Pine has no place in this loft. It's the wood of poor people and outhouses.Schmidt
