Schmidt tutors Jess in the not-so-fine-art of dating via mobile apps. Meanwhile, Winston is desperate to make a good impression on his fellow police cadets, which backfires when Nick, Coach and Cece show up at a party thrown by fellow officers.
Jess's dad visits with his new fiancée, who went to high school with Jess. A suspicious Jess attempts to ruin their relationship. Meanwhile, Schmidt is trying to land a sponge ad campaign and enlists the guys' help to disastrous results.
Nick hatches a bet with Jess that she's just as superficial as the rest of the guys when it comes to dating. Meanwhile, Winston and Cece team up to trick Schmidt and Coach into thinking they're going to be models.
When Coach's liaison with the school nurse gets messy, vice principal Jess must enforce a new, "no fraternization" policy among the teachers. But the tables soon get turned when she finds herself attracted to the hot new science teacher. Meanwhile, Nick is enjoying being Schmidt and Winston's secretary, after the loft gets a new home phone.
Jess admits she might be in possession of certain illegal substances, which complicates Winston's plans as the loft must pass a home visit and a background check as a part of his police academy training.
