Today is Jake Johnson’s birthday, and so to celebrate (or drown my sorrows knowing that the next season of New Girl is the last) I thought now was a better time than any to share some of my favourite Nick Miller quotes!
He’s a grumpy old soul, and unless Winston is planning one of his famous pranks, he’s also my favourite character in the show. It’s hard not to love him. Without further ado…
#1 I wish I was witty enough to come up with a line like this every time I’ve been at a family function and not wanted to dance to the latest Beyonce hit.
#2 In an old job I had, I got to take part in a fancy dinner as thanks for helping to organise it. The tables were round, and I accidentally took a bread roll from the wrong side of the plate. Chaos followed.
#3 In the same job, we had some interns who hated us all, and we came across a string of emails in which they’d insulted us all. Mine? “She thinks she’s older than she is.” Well, sorry if I like cups of tea and bed by 9!
#4 Same, Nick, same. Only my weird stuff is binge watching 13 Reasons Why and crying at videos of cute puppies.
#5 Who doesn’t?
#6 I’m getting soppy now I know, but I’ve been wishing for a happy Jess & Nick ending since the very first episode, and I could have filled this post with soppy quotes!
#7 I’ve never been a diet kind of person. It’s not that I’m super skinny or anything, I just love food too much! Nick and I share the same views on this subject!
#8 This is going to be one of the first things I ask after I give birth later this year. Until I realise I’d like to breastfeed. Then I’ll be sad.
#9 Indeed it is! Especially when you only have 4 episodes of 13 Reasons Why left, and your friends are moaning that you’re taking longer than Clay to get through it all.
#10 Yeah, I know. This isn’t a quote. But what face in New Girl is more recognizable than Nick Miller’s turtle face?!
Who else is going to miss New Girl when it all ends next year? I hope the cast move on to bigger things afterwards, I’ve really grown to love all of them. Jake Johnson has been in a few movies already, most recently a little indie movie on Netflix called Win It All. If you’re a fan it’s definitely worth a watch. I was just double checking the name of that movie and realised he’s also going to be in The Mummy this year too!
But anyway, what have I missed from this list? What’s your favourite Nick Miller quote?
