'New Girl': Dermot Mulroney Returns, Shares Awkward First Kiss With Jess (VIDEO)

Dermot Mulroney was back on "New Girl" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on Fox) as Russell, the rich and successful older man who wrapped last week's episode by asking her out on a date. Only the date didn't go as well as Jess expected. Rather than a kiss at the close of a night, she got an awkward hug complete with a pat on the back. What does that mean?

In classic Jess fashion, she filled awkward moments with even more awkward conversation, but for all of her foot-in-mouth syndrome, Russell seemed to genuinely still be interested in her. And she can't for the life of her figure out why. He's successful, established and has his life together. Meanwhile, she's living with three idiots and has no idea about herself.

Add to the mix the smartest guy Nick knows in Dirk (Martin Starr), and you've got the most awkward first kiss in history. After a night of revelry with co-ed girls, Jess and Russell wound up in the car with a couple of them, Dirk and Nick, who was out of his mind drunk. There, Russell revealed that he was rusty at this whole dating thing, and didn't now how to read the signs. So she told him the right moment to kiss her.

When he did, another hand found its way around her head. It was Dirk, who'd found consciousness long enough to "help" with this special moment. Now that's a memorable first kiss!
