Episode Quotes

Captain Holt: This facility is a violent place filled with hardened criminals We need to send someone who can blend in.
Amy: Sir, I would be honored to take on this challenging assignment. [laughter] Why is everyone laughing? I can be a badass.
Gina: You're raising your hand right now.
Amy: We're in a meeting!

Captain Holt: [starts playing classical music] All right, listen up.
Gina: Urgh! You're not gonna try to convince us Mahler was the original punk rocker again, are you?
Captain Holt: No, the music is a classic counter-espionage maneuver. I don't want to be overheard. But, since you mention it, Mahler was one in-your-face bad boy.

Sergeant Jeffords: Gina and I have been here 20 minutes.
Gina: Though my presence is not puzzle-related. I just followed Terry into a dark closet.

Captain Holt: Unfortunately, we can't just arrest Figgis, because he has a man inside the FBI.
Jake: The good news is, we have a lead that's gonna break this case wide open: Maura Figgis, Jimmy's sister. She's currently serving in a maximum security prison in Texas.
Sergeant Jeffords: A white woman in prison, in Texas? [scoffs] She must be bad.

Sergeant Jeffords: Right, um, so, what's going on, sir?
Captain Holt: Oh, I have a plan to draw out Figgis's man in the FBI: Throw a funeral for Pimento. Now, before we, quote, unquote, bury Pimento, we need to, quote, unquote, open an investigation, find a, quote, unquote, corpse, and obtain a, quote, unquote, death certificate.
Gina: Kind of feel like you could have just used "air quotes."
Captain Holt: I could also wear short pants and drink from a jug that says "XXX".
