Episode Quotes

Attorney: How do we know those were drugs? Please back that tape up.
Charles: No! Objection!
Judge: On what grounds?
Charles: That's my penis?
Judge: Overruled.

Captain Holt: This just might work out after all.
Gina: You're damn right it will, 'cause we're a ragtag, scrappity, fart-dumb, moron parade, smart-ass team!

Captain Holt: Congratulations.We did it. And we did it together because we're a team.
Hitchcock: Should we do it again next week, sir?
Captain Holt: No. I would hate that.

Amy: Jake, Karen is a grown woman with a pretty respectable credit score. I'm sure she knows what she's doing.
Jake: Amy, I know that you have a binder, but you don't know her like I do. She's too trusting for her own good. She's fallen for more Nigerian scams than Scully.
Amy: She's fallen for 20 Nigerian scams?
Jake: 20? That's insane. No, she's fallen for 2. Scully's fallen for 20?
Amy: Yeah.

Jake: What's this case?
Amy: Oh, this isn't work. It's research on your mom since we're finally meeting. It's very thorough.
Jake: Just relax. She's gonna love you. You're both strong, accomplished women that have seen me naked.
