You know when you're watching a TV show, and you're witnessing a scene between a will they/won't they couple and you yell out "just make out already!" No? Just us?

Anyway, that's how we feel whenever we watch Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) on New Girl. So when we got those two on the carpet at Fox's TCA All-Star party, we begged them to give us some idea of when Nick and Jess would go from will they/won't they to totally doing it.

"You gotta tune in to see," Deschanel tells our very own Kristin Dos Santos in the most frustratingly coy way possible. "But we will say we are getting to have a lot of episodes together and spending more time together and [the writers] are not afraid of our chemistry anymore. They were last year."

Johnson adds: "The episodes coming up, they're letting Nick and Jess figure out what it is. I think the writers are doing a really good job with their relationship."
