The Thanksgiving episode will be packed full of embarrassing family moments in season 2. Schmidt will invite over his cousin Big Schmidt (played by Rob Riggle) and the pair will compete in a battle to prove who is the best Schmidt. Meanwhile Jess will try and reunite her parents in an unusual way. To try and get her dad (played by Rob Reiner) jealous of her mom (played by Jamie Lee Curtis), Jess asks Nick to flirt with her mom. Curtis appears on The Tonight Show with some outtakes of the hilarious flirting to give fans a look at what they can expect.
