    "You wish you'd look this good."

    Hello guys,
    Which sentence do you think is correct?
    You wish you look this good.
    You wish you looked this good.
    You wish you'd (you would) look this good.

    The sentence is taken from this funny scene (00:22):
    YouTube - According.To.Jim.S04E17.The.Mustache

    Personally, I believe it's the 3rd one.

    P.S: I doubt it is "wished".

    Cheers!
