45 ‘New Girl’-Inspired Instagram Captions For You And Your Roomies

Remember, Schmidt happens.

Originally Published: 

We all want to live the loft life. Our favorite roommates have set some high standards when it comes to Craigslist deals. Seriously, we don't know how Jess got so lucky to find a crew of people who would sing along to Dirty Dancing with her, but we sure hope that one day we land in the same situation, maybe even in Los Angeles. There's Nick, who is all of us when we're living our laziest lifestyles, and Schmidt, who is probably doing adulting the best. Yes, yet again a sitcom has totally sucked us in, and these New Girl quotes will be just right for you and the cool roommates in your life. You can't live with them, you can't live without them, amirite?

Out of everyone in the loft, I like to think I'm kind of like Winston. I would totally split some pasta with my cat, cherish a crepe pan, and find myself in the most awkward situations. On Saturdays, I love to spend my mornings sleeping in late, and find myself in the company of fruity drinks — although, I've never been good at pranks. Truth is, there's one character we all see ourselves in, and that's why the show continues to be so relatable, even though it’s been off the air for years. (Thank you, Netflix, for bringing it back into our lives.)

For roommates, the whole crew reminds us of the things we miss the most when we come home for break. The endless rounds of drinking games, the Friendsgiving dinners, and all the classic mess-arounds in between will be memories we'll want to relive always. For BFFs, the best Nick and Schmidt moments remind us that our college friends are forever, and that we'd really do anything for our partners in crime (even if it means taking on the personality of Michael Keaton).

If you're posting a picture on social media with your loft squad and need a quality caption, these 40 New Girl quotes will be just right. Bring something inspired by your favorite sitcom to your Instagram for all of those roomie pics on your feed.
