Crazy Schmidt was first briefly introduced in the episode "Competitive Ecology" as someone with a grudge against Sgt. Chang. Chang was thanking Dean Pelton for his generosity in allowing him to stay in a room at Greendale for free behind the school coffee bar, "Hot & Brown". He also mentioned that he is now in a relationship with someone he met at school, Veronica, a wooden mannequin leg. While sweeping the hallway, a passing Schmidt overheard their conversation and angrily called Chang a home wrecker, implying he and Veronica had been involved before Chang stole her away from him. Later in Season Three, in the episode "Basic Lupine Urology", he and Jerry are cleaning the Biology lab. He is lamenting to Jerry about not being able to see his dental hygienist again whom he describes in romantic overtones. Jerry suggests that he stop hitting on her, revealing that Schmidt had made unwanted advances that ended their "relationship". Schmidt makes a weird claim that she was actually hitting on him. Jerry then makes a horrible discovery which ends their conversation. He calls Schmidt over, and they both look upon the mangled remains of the study group's Biology 101 yam project.
