Megan Fox is making her New Girl debut on Tuesday – but apparently her character, Reagan, is no stranger to Cece (Hannah Simone).

In a First Look from the upcoming episode exclusive to Entertainment Weekly, the two reveal that they once hooked up at an MTV Beach House taping. Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Nick (Jake Johnson) react by well, you can probably guess how they react.

Fox (the network) previously announced that Fox (the actress) would be appearing on the show during star Zooey Deschanel‘s maternity leave.

“I’ve been a fan of her comedic skills since This Is 40, and I’m so excited to have her on the show,” showrunner Liz Meriwether told EW in September. “We had Megan in mind when we wrote this part – she’s the perfect person to come in and shake these guys up.”

New Girl airs Tuesdays (8 p.m. ET) on Fox.
