Winston & Coach Loan Cece Money for College on 'New Girl' So Get Ready to Fall in Love With Them All Over Again
Though the majority of Tuesday night's New Girl episode "Swuit" centered around Nick and Schmidt's business venture, they weren't the only loftmates interested in making a joint investment. However, instead of a product, it was in regards to an actual human being. After discovering that Cece's lack of funds was potentially putting her educational future in jeopardy, Winston and Coach offered to pay for Cece's college tuition so that she wouldn't have to drop out. I know, right? How amazing is that! I mean, I've grown to really love each and every one of these characters throughout the years, but that is an amazingly kind gesture on their part.
Now, of course, it wasn't a hand out or anything. In fact, Coach even referred to her as a walking treasury bond, expecting to be paid back in full (and then some) after she graduates. Which, fair enough. And in typical New Girl fashion, things quickly spiraled out of control. The guys even attended a few of Cece's classes as a way to check up on their "investment" and make sure her career path was leading to profitable results. But the most important takeaway from all of this is that — hidden underneath all the comical hijinks this partnership ensued — Winston and Coach believed in Cece so much that they're willing to put their own financial futures on the line in order to help her pursue her own dreams.
When Cece first started to argue about how she couldn't take their money, Coach told her how smart she is and how they both feel completely confident in her abilities. That says a lot about their characters right there. So much of this show focuses on hilarious antics and romantic entanglements that it sometimes forgets to focus on the friendship of it all. But that's exactly what this episode did. Friends believing in friends can be a massive tug at the heartstrings and right now I have never felt more love for these two than I do right now.
So yeah, they may not know Cece's full name and occasionally disagree on what classes she should be taking, but they were there for her when she really needed them most, which, at the end of the day, is what real true love is all about.
