New Girl: Schmidt’s rabbi was nicknamed The Octopus at camp

Schmidt goes to his rabbi seeking advice in “The Box” episode of New Girl and ends up learning what his nickname was at summer camp.

Jon Lovitz guest stars as Rabbi Feiglin in the episode (Season 3, Episode 4).

“Have you ever dated two women at once,” Schmidt (Max Greenfield) asks him.

“What are you talking about, I went to camp,” Rabbi Feiglin tells him. “They used to call me The Octopus.”
