Excellent review of a spectacular episode. The writers of this show have simply been spot-on the entire season. The most powerful moment of the episode was when Schmidt and Nick had a moment of pure, raw emotion (and as usual, excellently masked in humor only seconds before):
"It's just really disappointing when things don't work out the way you thought they would, you know?"
Not only did it sum up how they are ALL feeling at this point in their lives, it was such a telling moment between friends that have truly been there for every high and low of life for the past 10 years. Even if you've reached a point in your life where you HAVE "figured it out", every single viewer could remember the moment in their lives when they felt that exact same way.
Powerful, powerful writing.
