The only thing worse than living with your ex? Finding out the person you are dating is living with their ex!

In Tuesday's all-new episode of New Girl, fans will finally get to see just how Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) deal with telling their dates that they still live together. And yes, it's just as hilarious and wacky as you'd expect.

We've got an exclusive first look at the Fox sitcom's "Goldmine," featuring insight into the episode from writer Berkley Johnson and a sneak peek at Nick "playing gay" so Jess can get laid. 


"Nick playing gay is based on 250 episodes of Three's Company," Johnson explains. "It just seemed like a fun thing for Jake to do, like his take on being gay."

And you can see just how much fun Nick and Jess have with the storyline in the exclusive video above, which also reveals that Jake uses the whole living with his ex thing to scare girls off. A little harsh? Yes. Effective? Oh yes.

In case you missed it, New Girl debuted its new (less cutesy) opening credits sequence last week, getting rid of the previous opening they used for four seasons. Of the new credits, creator Liz Meriwether tweeted they were changed "to include Damon [Wayans Jr.] and Hannah [Simone]. Don't get mad at me. I don't know how to do good main titles. I barely shower."

New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
